Why not start the party with some heart opening, mind elevating, mood boosting remedies? Add them into mocktails, or boost up your cocktails to not only sustainably elevate the mind+body, but to crank of the vibes with healthy alternatives. If you're hosting a part this summer, or heading to a party, go armed with your aphrodisiacs and happy herbs to unexpectedly uplift folks in ways you'd never thought was possible.
My favorite go-to's are heart-opening aphrodisiacs like damiana, catuaba, yohimbe, which are a never-miss kind of uplifter. Our Euphoria elixir is a compilation of rainforest herbs that will get your heart high no matter what. (Did you know that yohimbe is where viagra comes from? I know, pretty wild isn't it?) You could also boost your loved ones with happy herbs, like albizzia, st. johns wort, and mucuna. There are lots more herbs you can get playful with, yet those are just a few to spark up some ideas.
Our happiness tonic is an excellent ally to work with in your home mixology. It's easy to use, its basically everyone's favorite, the flavor isn't too intense-herbal like other tinctures, and it actually works. You can do a strong dose to really uplift, or keep it mellow to just set an uplifting tone. The herbs within the formula have all been clinically studied to help regulate dopamine, or serotonin, or help regulate chronic stress and anxiety out of the body. For example, like St Johns Wort and Mimosa-Albizzia have significantly contributed in helping those needing an alternative to anti-depressants. Rhodiola, is another infamous adaptogen that has been heavily studied for its ability to help those with PTSD type symptoms.
