In Chinese Medicine, we see the body in the context of five elements, five cycles, five organ systems.
The tincture formulas in this collection each correspond to a different season, and in turn, a different element. Each organ system tends towards disharmony during a specific time of year.
The herbs strewn through out this collection are designed to support our bodies throughout the year, like eating with the seasons, but emphasizing the support of our deepest reserves.
Take home one, to support yourself in a time of need, or the whole set to invite your body into holistic wellness in the months ahead.
The Wood Element, strongest in the Springtime, reminds our body to detox from a long winter, supporting the Liver in order to get body functions in order.
This tincture helps jump start digestion and liver function, so the body can keep up with the budding leaves around us.
The Fire Element, connected to the summertime that's too often filled with its counter parted smoky skies, supports the Heart in it's greatest time of need.
The Earth Element, pronounced in the late summer months, corresponds to the Spleen and Stomach, organs that not only rule digestion, but guide the transformation of what we put into our bodies into useable fuel.

The Metal Element corresponds with the Lungs and manifests in the fall. As too many of us know, the lungs are most susceptible to disease as the seasons grow colder and our body makes its transition to the darker months ahead.
In Winter, we are asked most to build our reserves, turn inward, plant seeds for the season ahead. The Kidneys, keepers of the Water Element, are the key to deep systemic support. This adaptogenic blend helps defend against physical, emotional, and environmental stressors to keep the body strong.
Take the whole set
And say yes to seasonal wellness, preventive care, and a healthier, happier you.
