◦ BLUE LOTUS BLOSSOMS ◦
meticulously grown by a friend in his pond. The fact that he can grow them at all in this part of the high desert of Northern New Mexico means they must be magic. There is nothing more transformative and awe-inspiring than the aroma of true blue lotus oil (99.99% of it is fake or processed after the flowers have wilted or rotted)- it literally brings you in direct contact with the divine. When used as a tea it is drunk before bed to stimulate the most epic of dreams. This is truly a divine flower to help you blossom into your beauty and love.
◦ HIBISCUS FLOWER BLOSSOMS ◦
homegrown in pots (that must be moved with the seasons so that they will continue to blossom and survive) it is traditionally drunk throughout Mexico as a cooling summer beverage. Hibiscus is both refreshing in the summer heat but also helps balance the fluids within the body and supports the heart.
◦ CALENDULA BLOSSOMS ◦
homegrown in Northern New Mexico. Calendula is frequently found in lotions and oils but can also be taken internally. Calendula has been called “sunshine in a bottle” both for the bright yellow blossoms and the uplifting and moving effects it produces. Calendula stimulates the lymphatic system to help gently rid the body of toxins but also acts as an efficient anti- bacterial agent and anti-inflammatory. Calendula can be used to treat infections, but I include it in this formulation for its sunny disposition and liver stimulating effects.
◦ JU HUA CHRYSANTHEMUM BLOSSOMS ◦
homegrown in Northern New Mexico, these blossoms are demure and simple compared to the showy versions we prize for bouquets in the fall. The white flowers have a gentle cooling action as well as a direct benefit on the blood and circulation to improve vitality and balance.
◦ ELDERFLOWER BLOSSOMS ◦
collected in Northern New Mexico from mountain bushes and supplemented by some from my own garden bushes, elderflower blossoms are perhaps best known for their deliciously sweet and delicate aroma. Elderflower has a wonderfully anti-inflammatory and immune boosting effect on the system and is even soothing for those suffering from hay fever. This flower, like many of the others included in this formulation has been consumed for centuries both for its lovely flavor and its health benefits.
◦ OCOTILLO CACTUS BLOSSOMS ◦
collected from the wild cacti so prevalent in the southern part of New Mexico, their fiery red blossoms indicate the start of summer in the desert. Historically, the Apache collected these blossoms for tea to treat sore muscles while the bark and root have also been used traditionally. Though a plant with mildly warming properties, it is used to treat stagnancy of the blood and lymph with a particular affinity for the pelvic region from the liver to the sexual organs. Ocotillo’s effects can be far reaching from energetic blockages to physical stagnation.
◦ WILD ROSE BLOSSOMS ◦
collected from the wild rose bushes in the mountains of New Mexico, roses bring some extra love and fragrance to the blend. Roses provide the extra heart opening to any elixir as well as gently providing the support we all need to the liver.
◦ TULSI ◦
homegrown in Northern New Mexico, Tulsi is also known as holy basil and is one of the more beautiful of the adaptogenic herbs. Tulsi is used for a wide range of properties including antibacterial and antiviral effects. It has an almost floral aroma to match its spiciness and is excellent at calming anxiety and stress while still stimulating mental processes.
◦ ISATIS ROOT ◦
homegrown in Northern New Mexico, Isatis root is one of the most cooling of Chinese herbs, it will help to cool the internal fires through the heat of the summer.

* we ONLY use brandy and we do it because we love you and the plants. Grain alcohol isn't good enough for either.
