Have you ever experienced Summertime Sadness? Maybe it’s because these next few weeks, summer vacation comes to a screeching halt, or it’s the shift in seasonal weather, but in some way or another, we all experience a little sadness here and there in different capacities sometimes we can’t explain. If this happens to sound familiar, try drinking a cup of our “Happy” blend.
Another option instead of infused tea, is making a tincture out of our Happy tisane. Just find a jar approximately the size of a pint, fill 1/3-1/2 with dried Happy herbs, and soak herbs with a little boiling water just enough to dampen herbs. Fill the rest of the jar with consumable alcohol (80 proof such as vodka or rum), cap and store in a cool/dry place for a minimum of 3 weeks or up to 6 months, shaking the jar daily. Afterwards, just strain through cheesecloth in a dropper bottle and compost herbs.
Don’t like the taste of alcohol? You can also substitute apple cider vinegar or food grade vegetable glycerin, but note, it can only last up to 3-6 months and will need to be stored in the fridge.
So many options to enjoy our happy blend, and to finish out these last Summer months on a Happy high note!
