AllergEase - Seasonal Allergy Support
AllergEase is our Seasonal Allergy support tisane with mountain botanicals respectfully gathered throughout the previous foraging season for this spring. Many botanicals we use today in herbalism were shared amongst Indigenous groups and with settlers by Indigenous people who have an ancestral relationship, deep knowledge, varied cultural uses, unique stories and a deep respect for these plant relatives. Much gratitude is given for this ancestral knowledge taught through generations and at times shared, that deserves much more acknowledgement. We teacrafted this one for you and our whole family as there are genetic predispositions but we can live well through food, lifestyle, stress management and herbs. We feel your discomfort so we made this blend with this in heart.
