Aphrodisiac Tea – Perfect for that Special Someone!

Today I will be at the Midweek Market in Atlantic Beach with free samples of my lovely Aphrodisiac Tea. I’ll be there from 3-6p.

This tea blend is a mix of lovely herbs to increase vitality and set the mood.

Oats, both oatstraw and oat tops, are both a nutritive tonic, increasing vitality body, mind and spirit, and a strong sexual tonic for both men and women.

Damiana has a long standing reputation as an aphrodisiac. It is known to increase blood flow to the loins which can benefit both men and women. It is also useful as an aphrodisiac when a lack of interest is caused by anxiety and depression.

Ashwagandha Root is known to improve energy. It is prized for its ability to normalize the bodies sex hormones and has been known to increase fertility.

Hibiscus has many health benefits, specifically its full of antioxidants and vitamin C, supports upper respiratory health and is a useful circulatory and heart tonic. In this blend it adds a beautiful pink color and tart flavor.

Lastly we have Ginger. Ginger is used for it warming medicinal qualities, increasing blood flow, warming the body from the inside out, and as a sexual tonic as it also increases blood flow to the loins. It is also used for its spicy flavor.

This blend is both beautiful, effective and delicious. Get your sweetheart some today!

Farmer’s Market Today!

We are at the Beaches Green Market today in Neptune Beach at Jarboe Park from 2-5p. Come get your herbal products!

My husband and I are in the latest edition of Edible Northeast Florida Magazine!! And we’re so excited!! 

Yesterday, we got our copy of Edible Northeast Florida Magazine to see that we made the cut! We had been contacted by them in December to do a photoshoot on backyard chickens, and were excited to see how our little urban homestead and our beautiful hens would be portrayed!

Well, it came out lovely! We are so excited to be representing sustainable, backyard, local food systems in our community. And I love that my husband, Lang, grabbed the pitchfork for a modern take on the famous “American Gothic.”

All the ladies, except Marigold, got a cameo. They’ve been well rewarded for their modeling skills with grub worms, sunflower seeds and scratch!

At The Manifest Nest we do more than just herbs. We believe in sustainable health not just from herbal support, but from food as medicine.

Today, we will be at the Beaches Green Market with lots of lovely herbal support. After a few freezes we will not have any garden produce today, but we will have a fresh batch of Fire Cider Tonic and Fire Cider Tonic Especial, fresh batches of Immuni-Tea and Inner Peace Tea and lots of other goodies to keep you happy and well as the weather changes and our bodies adapt.

The Beaches Green Market is today, Saturday 1/20 from 2-5pm at Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach. We will have extra copies of Edible Northeast Florida as we always do, even when we aren’t in it, so come on by and say hello!

September Hiatus at The Manifest Nest!

 

What a whirlwind Hurricane Irma has been. I hope that each and every one of you are healthy and well. I know that many of you either sustained some damage from the storm or know someone who has, my heart goes out to each and every one of you.

In the wake of Irma I am not going to have any events, classes or farmer’s markets until October! I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have for any of you, but please know that I am here at the Apothecary if anyone needs anything. 

I know that I have been feeling a bit emotionally taxed, stressed, and that my adrenals and immune system are both suffering because of it. I have a great supply of herbal needs at this time should you be feeling similar and need some herbal support.

I have my Restorative Tincture that is full of adaptogens to help the body deal with and overcome the side effects of stress. Both my husband and I have been taking this 2x a day and it has really helped.

I have both Fire Cider Tonic and Elderberry Syrup to help your body boost immunity and to fight off any cold or flu symptoms.

I have a few new products as well!

I have a Skin Bliss balm that is specific for rashes, eczema and psoriasis.

I also made a batch of Herbal Insect Repellent which is great for all the bugs that have been around after all this water and flooding. (And don’t forget my Anti-Itch Salve if the bugs have already gotten you.)

Again, I hope that all of you are recovering physically and emotionally from the storm, and if you can help your neighbors and friends as they recover, please do so.

Take time for yourself as well: get a massage, go to the chiropractor, watch a funny movie, get some ice cream that wasn’t lost in the power outage, and nourish your body with whole foods and herbs. Whatever soothes your soul do so.

Hurricane season is only half over, and even when it is not natural disasters at our door, the universe will send us challenges that help us to grow and expand. Sometimes, it is necessary to retreat inward in order to find the strength to grow and expand and that is ok too.

Again, please don’t hesitate to contact me should you need any herbal products or an herbal consultation. You can find more information here.

Kind thoughts,
Heather

Cold and Flu Needs at the Local Farmer’s Markets!

Today and tomorrow are the last two Farmer’s Markets for the Manifest Nest until March! I just can’t believe how fast this year is already passing! And spring is definitely here at the Beaches, as my peach tree is in full bloom!

Today is the Grand Opening of the Atlantic Beach City Market, aka the ABC Market! I am honored to be participating! The ABC Market is located at New Friendship Church on the corner of Mayport and Dutton Island Roads. Market Hours are 3-6pm.

Tomorrow is the Beaches Green Market at Jarboe Park in Neptune Beach on the corner of 3rd Street and Florida Blvd. Market Hours are 2-5pm.

It would appear that there are many of you feeling a bit under the weather so, I’ve been diligently making your cold and flu needs.

I have a new batch of Fire Cider Tonic and a Fire Cider Tonic Especial that has fresh, organic turmeric root in it! The taste is nearly the same, but the benefits are increased. Both will help to keep your digestive system and circulatory system pumping, while also containing many anti-virals and anti-bacterials to fight off any germs. The turmeric root will also help with inflammation throughout the body. It is also full of antioxidants and a powerful immune enhancer.

I have Elderberry Syrup and Immuni-tea full of immune boosting herbs to help your body fight any germs that may have gotten you already and to help your body prevent them taking ahold. I know I’ve been taking it 2-3x a day, as more and more people have been coming by sick to the apothecary!

I also have Cold and Flu tincture, which I believe to be our strongest cold and flu remedy. These are the herbal big guns. When you know you are sick this tincture can really help your body fight. The goldenseal root is one of nature’s natural antibiotics and the two kinds of echinacea help dry up mucus and boost your immune system.

I also have lots of other lovely herbal products, and will have a bit of the garden’s abundance with me! Come on by and see all the things our local farmers, bakers, and other artisans have to share with you!
