Why our Bless You Again Allergy Tea Works!
And that is our Allergy Tea! Over the last two weeks we have been seeing so many of you with various types of allergic symptoms and we have been recommending our Bless You Again Allergy Tea. This tea works and we are happy to explain the herbs in the formula. You might see something that can offer you much needed relief.
Why Bless You Again Allergy Tea works:
Nettles – Itchy and irritated skin? This herb has histamine in its chemical components and is great for any itchiness, swelling, skin rashes or elevated bumps, hives, etc. Nettle is just as great in opening the lungs and removing mucous, which helps with wheezing and shortness of breath.
Goldenrod - Say goodbye to your itchy eyes! This herb is brilliant at relieving redness, itchiness and mucous from eyes. It is a brilliant kidney restorative and is strengthening to the kidneys, which has everything to do with how your body responds to allergies.
Sage –Itchy throat and congested sinuses? This herb also has histamine as a chemical constituent, and has antimicrobial and astringent properties, so it can prevent infections while drying up mucous.
Ginger and Peppermint complement the above ingredients in this amazing formula.
If you are looking for a more holistic approach to managing your allergies, I think you might be very pleased with our allergy tea.
Are you feeling nourished?
Its a good question to ask yourself in this rapidly changing world. What nourishes you? And what time to you take to extend to receiving? This month we will be encouraging you to nurture yourselves! This month’s weeks blog post is dedicated to products that will support your efforts in nourishing you.
To nurture means to feed, protect, support, encourage and educate.

Your breath is more important that you think..
What does your breath say about your engagement with life? Your life is your breath and the reverse is equally true. They way you breathe defines your ability to give and receive. Strengthen your breath and strengthen your participation in/with life.
Its the beginning of Spring and you will feel your connection to the environment and the changing of seasons through your breath. Following is previous post of mine on caring for Asthma with herbs. I hope this can provide some understanding and support for you or your family members living with Asthma.
Allergies – Most Asthma suffers have allergies. Allergic reaction often lead to airway inflammation associated with Asthma. Common sources of indoor allergens include: pets, dogs and cats, dust mites, cockroaches, and mold.
Tobacco Smoke – can cause wheezing and respiratory infections increasing risk and aggravating asthmatic conditions. Mothers who smoke while pregnant increase the risk of asthma in there children.
Environmental Factors – such as air pollution and toxins, cold temperatures, high humidity. There are also many indoor environmental factors such as fumes from a gas stove (Did you know that people with a gas stove are more likely to have symptoms of Asthma? I did not know this!) and mold that can also exacerbate the instances of Asthma.
Obesity – overweight adults have twice the risk for non allergic-asthma.
Birth – the way we enter into the world matters. Babies that were delivered by C-section are 20% more likely to have asthma that those delivered by vaginally. Babies that are premature are also at risk.
Stress – important in our times. Stress and impact the immune system, therefore people who undergo stress have a higher risk of suffering from asthma.
Eczema – 40-50% of children with eczema has asthma. Research also show that these children will then develop severe and persistent cases of asthma as they grow into adulthood.
