An Herbal Joy History and Giveaway!

 

Ever since its arrival, we’ve been treating ourselves to big communal bottles of Joy Tonic by Urban Moonshine around the office. You’ll find a bunch of us crowded around the bottle at break time, adding it to afternoon tea or taking droppers straight for a little boost. Lovingly formulated with aromatic herbs and flowers, the refreshing lemon balm and rose flavors really stand out to inspire smiles, even when the Oregon sun is in hibernation.

We thought you might enjoy some Joy Tonic in your life too, so we’re partnering with herbalist Guido Masé of Urban Moonshine for a “joyful” giveaway! He’s also sharing this wonderful article to help us understand the power of calming herbs throughout time and during our often stressful modern lives.

Good timing for the upcoming season, ya know?

 

Aromatic Herbs: Uplift the Spirit and Gladden the Heart

Guido Masé, RH (AHG) 2012

In today’s world of tight schedules, constant communication, and high-speed movement we often find ourselves disconnected from what matters most, from what truly brings us joy. Whether from an endless to-do list or a lack of time spent quietly outdoors, our spirit is endlessly stimulated and yet feels dissatisfied, unsettled, and sometimes even sad.  In a different time, we might have retreated to the corner of a scented garden to find a moment’s peace and solace, but without such a refuge readily available, internal tension can manifest as anxiety, irritability, and sleeplessness – or leave us feeling overwhelmed, uninspired, fatigued, and unhappy. It is a malaise that has been creeping up on us in these modern times.

There are so many options set forth to cure this malaise and researchers are always looking for the next “blockbuster” drug to help those suffering from depression and anxiety, but many of these choices have problematic side effects as well – from sexual dysfunction to weight gain. Not exactly the best way to heal an uninspired spirit!

Herbalists have an entire class of plants – the nervines – that can help support a balanced state of internal tension, nourish the mind and spirit, and thereby bring joy to frazzled days and restorative sleep to restless nights. They have been used for thousands of years: from the incenses and infused wines of Egypt and China, to the warming mulling spices served on a winter’s night. They are generally highly scented plants, a source of volatile oils, and are as safe as a cup of chamomile tea (still used today to soothe a worried, colicky child). Many are standby features of aromatic gardens: lemon balm, lavender, rose, and mugwort in the temperate zones, and lemongrass, cardamom, holy basil and jasmine in tropical climates. Just like a retreat into the garden itself, these fragrant herbs are a time-honored and effective way to gently rebalance internal tension without being habit forming, intoxicating, or sedating.

The chemistry of these plants goes to work on our heart and arteries, relaxing their state of tension and improving circulation to the hands and feet. The molecules responsible for the aromatic quality of the nervine herbs are also great at relaxing our bellies, urinary systems, and the smooth muscle that makes up the uterus. Thus they feature in remedies for stress and nervousness, unfocused and scattered personalities, worry and sleeplessness and – believe it or not – menstrual cramping! Beyond this, one cannot overestimate the havoc that chronic stress wreaks upon us: over time, the effort of maintaining such a high state of tension can make us feel sluggish, apathetic, and withdrawn – in a word, depressed. The aromatic, nervine plants are a blessing in two ways: they help keep our anxiety and worry in check on a day-to-day basis, but can also re-enliven us when we feel sad and despondent. Think of a bouquet of flowers from a friend: it’s hard to stay upset, closed within your shell, when presented with such a fragrant gift!

In the Czech Republic, the linden tree is sacred. In fact, this tree – whose incredibly sweet-smelling flowers bloom almost the entire month of July – features on traditional currencies, flags, and palace insignia. It is rumored that  in order to maintain an even temper and render swift and just judgment, all legal proceedings in the rural villages are still conducted under a linden. The flower tea is a national beverage, though it is also prized from Provence to Scandinavia. Here in the darker, colder reaches of northern Europe, country folk rely on linden (and other aromatic nervines such as lemon balm and rose) to lift their moods during the long stretches of night at the heart of winter. When the sun barely peeks above the horizon for an hour or two, the scented herbs recall the garden’s summer delights, and give us that moment’s retreat that can make all the difference when the spirit feels low, disconnected, and undernourished.

If you look around, you might see that this very traditional practice is missing from our modern lives. Yet it seems so important, and so easy! When we cannot visit a garden for renewal, perhaps we can re-learn to cultivate our own inner gardens with the sweet-scented nervine plants. In doing so we will see tension melt away, relieve the weight of worry, and inspire a depressed spirit. Rest will come more easily, and creativity will be enhanced. Our stress might then become a challenge to meet and overcome with grace and joy – and all this using safe, aromatic, nourishing herbs that have been a part of the human experience for thousands of years.  Aromatic nervines are still a delicious, refreshing cure for our modern malaise.

    My favorite soothing herb would definitely be the lemon balm I grow in my back yard. I also enjoy tulsi, lavender, and chamomile. I didn’t know Linden was calming so I’ll be sure to give that a try, too.

  2. avatar suleklo says:

    My favorite calming herb is lemon balm.

  3. avatar Egrain says:

    I live with and care for my 90 year old grandfather. One of our favorite herbs to enjoy together is lemon balm, which grows very happily in our garden here in southern California. There are so many ways to experience this beautiful herb — some mornings just trailing my fingers across the green leaves is more than enough to bring a grin to my face! My grandfather loves a simple infusion of lemon balm, enjoyed hot or at room temperature, almost every day of the year. I also give him occasional sips of lemon balm glycerine tincture — a true delight that recalls the sun shining on our plants. I sometimes think if I were stuck on an island and could grow only one herb, it would be lemon balm!

  4. avatar ladybug.llj says:

    My favorite calming herb is lavender. It is so versatile!

  5. avatar somna says:

    In times of crisis, I always reach for tulsi. It is my favorite herb for restoring a sense of calm.

  245. avatar hmcohen says:

    My favorite calming herb is most certainly lavender. When I was a child I used to summer in the south of France. We would go to the Senanque Abbey in Gordes to see the lavender fields almost every summer. The monks there pressed fresh lavender oils and made many other fresh lavender products, and ever since I have been in love with this herb. I have a plant growing right next to my bed and whenever I am feeling anxious or stressed, all I have to do is rub my fingers on the plant and smell and it all melts away. A plant that powerful and meaningful is truly special.

    For relaxing herbs, lemon balm by far, but also skull cap and valerian root, and California poppy when I can get my hands on it. I brew up a special Calm the eff down Jackson lemonade for my husband when he gets a little wound up. I know it doesn’t really count as an herb, but nothing makes me happier than honeysuckle. As soon as it starts blooming, I do too. I make honeysuckle water for a light beverage or to rinse my hair and clothes. I make honeysuckle sorbet, and a honeysuckle variant on May wine with a little lemon balm instead of sweet wood rush for a little extra relaxation on a warm Spring afternoon.

    Lemon balm is one of my favorite calming and uplifting herbs. It’s fantastic after a hard day to unwind and transition out of stress.

    I liked Urban Moonshine, signed up for your news letter and joined the blog. I already liked Mountain Rose Herbs on Facebook. I would also like to say that I love your products, your items are of excellent quality.

    Anything Rose puts a smile on my face anytime. I tried Tulsi recently and found it to be instantly calming. There is so much to learn! I have to tread a fine line between spending for health/wellness and survival these days. Winning a giveaway at this time would be a blessing for my family. THank you for all the wonderful recipes and tips on the blog!

    I Liked both companies on FB.

    Definitely roses. We have a 50 year old rose bush in our front yard that makes some beautiful fragrant roses. Dried soooo many rose petals this summer. ^_^
    Also chamomile is awesome.

    I like a valarian root tonic now and again to swish around my mouth at night….with some dandylion mixed in.

    Lavender is my favorite calming herb, but I love lots of other herbs along with it.
