I know I’m being super trendy here, but I love my Chinese herbs. Label me an obsessed Sun Potion fangirl, I collect these golden wrapped jars like I collect sunscreen. When we travel I go without and by the time we’re heading home I feel unbalanced, sluggish… just off. Of course, there are other factors at play but I really do feel these make a difference in my health.
I’ve been incorporating herbs into my daily routine since the beginning of the year, starting out with Moon Juice and gradually switching over to Sun Potion. Moon Juice is good, but Sun Potion is great. Both brands take sourcing seriously, however, Sun Potion is the leader of the pack and their pricing is on par with their quality while Moon Juice is more affordable. If I need to watch my budget I would go with Moon Juice, however I do notice a difference between the two products. In my experience, Sun Potion is a more potent product.
so what do Chinese herbs actually do???
Sun Potion powdered herbs are known as adaptogens, herbs with the ability to balance stress and normalize processes within our body. If that’s too out there for you, think of them as superfoods. Each herb has its own purpose, rich in vitamins and minerals, to stimulate immunity and restore internal balance. They’re a simple addition to improve your overall well-being
A health foodie’s dream, essentially.
And, I have two suggestions on how to get your Sun Potion fix….
First, join their mailing list for sale alerts. Secondly, many herbs are available through Thrive Market at a discounted price. You can read all about the subscription service here, I’m a biggggggg fan! In case you needed another excuse, you can use my referral link for an additional 25% off your first order, which is exactly what I did to stock up on my potions!
lemme show you how I indulge with Sun Potion tonics
When I asked you guys if you were curious about my teas the response was an overwhelming yes! Sun Potion, Moon Juice, and other herbal companies are trending in the wellness world. It doesn’t have to be daunting, it’s actually really easy to add a few herbs into your routine!
I enjoy my herbs two ways: sprinkled into smoothies or brewed into a tea.
One thing to remember when enjoying your herbs, you need a healthy fat to aid in absorption. MCT oil, butter, and ghee are all great options. Even Pearl Butter can be used! Usually, I’ll use MCT oil in my smoothies and ghee in my teas, it’s all personal preference.
You can make your tea without a fancy marshmallow, just know it won’t be sweet, which is how I usually make my teas. I add Smash Mallow when I’m indulgent! The raw cocoa gives it an unsweetened hot chocolate vibe. It’s perfect either way!
Sometimes I like mixing more than a couple herbs in, when that happens I decrease the dose to 1/4 teaspoon per herb.
It’s incredibly easy: grab a saucepan on low-medium heat, toss everything but your marshmallow in, and whisk until ingredients are thoroughly dissolved. Your tea will be ready within 5-7 minutes, time to enjoy!
