The word perfume comes from the Latin words, "per” meaning “through” and "fumus” meaning smoke. The terminology is ancient, stemming from when the early perfumers used whole 🌸ingredients, found in the natural world, to make their intoxicating potions, elixirs and pure 🍃 fumes.

A little about us...Vital Yogi herbals were designed in Asheville, NC by a member of a Grammy winning band, for traveling musicians & yogis on the road to staying vital. We have tinctures & kits to support digestion, stress, the nerves, immune systems & women's yoni's from this high paced crazy life, and infuse each small batch with ancient sanskrit healing mantras. Our products are ethically sourced with the highest quality of ingredients...and love. We also have a line of Malas we designed for protection, activation and prayer, & are strung in India, employing women who were previously in poverty. ❤️ .
I've got a handful of these immune supporting herbal chai blend in the shop at www.shamanaflora.bigcartel.com - 4.5 oz loose chai spices, immune supporting roots and medicinal fungi blended to brew all season long. I made a bit extra today when whipping up a batch for the CSH packages! I'm not keeping stock of items in the store so once they are gone they are gone! Grab one if you want one!
Let the ROOTS nourish, ground, and build the Earth element in your body and spirit all winter long. Warming and stimulating chai spices are blended to a spicy perfection with the immune modulating and supporting adaptogens, medicinal fungi, and roots.
This is a strong medicinal blend, that is meant for daily use to support winter wellness and strong immunity. It is not for acute care of winter illnesses, which I generally reccomend working with elderberry, diaphoretics and other immuno-stimulant herbs.
Best cooked for several hours to fully release the medicinal benefits of medicinal roots and fungi. Each serving can be steeped twice.
I reccomend using a small crockpot and letting it slowly infuse over low heat for 4-6 hours. A long steeping or slow decoction in a stove top is fine too.
Herbs arrive whole and should be ground briefly in a spice mill before brewing. This allows for the best flavor from your chai spices.
Contains: astragalus, codonopsis, licorice, turkey tail mushroom, chaga, turmeric, ginger, black pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, clove.
4.5 oz loose chai herbs. - $20 plus priority shipping.

Cold season is upon us! But Elderberry is here to help. In the apothecary we stock a range of immune boosting herbs including Elderberry, like this Elderberry and Sumac syrup by @woodenspoonherbs and Organic dried Elderberries sold by weight at the counter.
Elderberry is one of the best herbs for dealing with the flu virus and has been tested in numerous clinical studies. This powerful berry helps boost your body's natural defences and even attacks the flu virus! Additionally Elderberry contains antioxidants, is anti inflammatory, and helps reduce sinus congestion (and helps with sinus infections too). This herb should only be used short term, when an illness is coming and during the illness. We will post more about long term immune boosters soon!
More herb tips to come!
Making the most of a quite house with a bit of practise. I did a seminar on Constitutional Facial Acupuncture Renewal a few weekends back, it was awesome. I'm spending the next few weeks getting my technique down then I'll bring it into the clinic ❤️#facialacupuncture#renewal
