Clitoria Ternatea

New Herbal Arrivals

We are always adding to our inventory and our new herbal arrivals are amazing.

Butterfly Pea Tea

Clitoria TernateaClitoria Ternatea, also known as butterfly pea, Asian pidgeon wings, Shankapushi, and other names, is a flower that grows in tropical Asia, Thailand, and Malaysia.
Primarily used in treating neurological issues, especially memory and depression, it has other health benefits that Ayurvedic medicine has benefited from for generations.

Another unique property to this herb is that it will turn any clear liquid blue.  This is very whimsical and can be fun for parties as you can color your drinks naturally.  We added this to some hibiscus tea and it turned a beautiful purple.

Elderberry

ElderberriesLong known for their powerful antioxidants elderberries have been used to boost the immune system, prevent and cure colds and flu, lower cholesterol and more.  These have been a bit difficult to get lately as they have been in large demand due to a powerful flu season.

We like to combine these with other healing herbs to create even more powerful infusions that help everyone get over sickness faster and even prevent getting sick in the first place.

Hawthorn Berries

Hawthorn BerriesHawthorn is a well established mild heart tonic which has been especially useful in treating congestive heart failure.  We have had the cut leaves and flowers in stock for some time which are perfect for making an infusion, but the berries are what you want to use when making a decoction or tincture.
