Brahmi is the Sanskrit word for the “feminine essence of the collective consciousness” & the “creative potential that arises from pure awareness”. The effects of using this herb are just that- increasing consciousness & awareness. Brahmi is a brain tonic effective in strengthening the memory, intellect, focus, concentration & overall balancing of emotions. It is energizing throughout the day & calming when it is time for sleep. Furthermore, brahmi is tridoshic, which means that it is balancing to vata, pitta & kapha.
Ayurveda loves the use of peppermint for its cooling, soothing & digestive properties. It can bring down the internal heat of the body, calm an upset tummy caused by gas or indigestion & protect the lining of the stomach. This refreshing green leaf also has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food.
Hibiscus is an unmistakable flower which packs a tart, antioxidant punch. Research has found that drinking hibiscus tea may combat free radicals, lower blood pressure, fight cancer & unhealthy bacteria, support liver health, prevent kidney stones & even promote weight loss. It is also high in vitamin C, making it excellent at supporting immune system health.

These little seeds are highly nutritious, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial & may even have cancer-fighting properties. Ayurveda loves the use of fennel seeds for their cooling digestive ability.
