Summer is a stimulating time of increased activity and socialising. As the weather starts to cool and we head into autumn, it is important to nourish your body, support a healthy nervous system and cultivate a more inward energy. It is also important to support the immune system during this time. Adding herbs to your diet to keep your body warm and your blood moving can also ease aches and pains and keep your hands and feet from getting cold as the weather shifts.

Herbs such as Ginger, Astragalus, Reishi, Schisandra and Ashwaganda are great for boosting immunity and strengthening the body. Herbs such as Oats, Tulsi and Ashwagandha are great for calming an anxious nervous system, helping you to adapt to seasonal changes and embrace this time of rest and reflection.

Finally, adaptogenic herbs like Ashwagandha, Schisandra, Tulsi and Reishi are wonderful for helping the body to adjust to change and adapt to any challenges that may arise during this transitional period.

Overall, herbs are a wonderful way to nourish yourself during the Autumn season. Your body and mind will thank you for the extra care!
