Come Up For Air
Often when I'm feeling anxious or panicky, I feel like I’m stuck underwater. all I want is to break through the surface and fling water droplets off my fins into the sun and take a huge breath so that I can return to floating again.
passionflower + blue vervain are two of my closest allies for toning down the intensity and re-regulating. anise hyssop is a respiratory tonic that soothes the throat and lungs after crying or yelling. they’re super aromatic and give this blend a sweet anise-y smell. lobelia is present in a small dose because I find that it's the energetic push to come back from the depths and expand your lungs.
sansevieria flower is an essence I made down in Florida (where I grew up) when I was there after a massive rain storm. The whole yard was flooded, but after the water receded all the snake plants bloomed with stalks of creamy yellow flowers. it’s a reminder that even if you’re submerged right now, you can still bloom <3
This blend tastes a lil bitter, but I find that the bitterness feels like getting a swoosh of cool air on my face to bring back to my body and back to my breath.
