Teas

Ancient physicians made full and effective use of the natural medicines around them. Most of todays herbal knowledge has its roots in the old time-tested healing systems. Today most mainstream medicines are made from chemical derivatives and even fossil fuels. They are, as a general rule, very new creations that often mimic or are derived from the active constituents of herbs. Herbal teas are usually taken for their flavor and/or ability to subtly alter the body's chemistry. Either way they are a strong tradition that continues today.

  4. Cleavers Herb (Loosepack)

    Cleavers Herb (Loosepack)

    Designation: Ethically Wildcrafted
    Item Order #: T5721

    The stems of Cleavers are lined with raspy little teeth which easily catch on clothing and "cleave" to a passerby. As of old it was customary to use Cleavers as a bedding material for childbirth, since it mats into itself well. It is thus known as "bedstraw" and is thought to have been the bedding material used by Mother Mary when she gave birth to Jesus.

    We learn from Dioscorides that the Greek shepherds of his day employed the stems of this herb to make a rough sieve to strain milk, and is still used the same way in Sweden to this day. Cleavers is a very beneficial herb, makes an excellent vegetable and the tea can be enjoyed as a drink or used as a facial wash.

    About Cranberries...
    European Settlers who came to Eastern North America coined the name crane-berry because of the resemblance of the flower stamens to the bill of a crane. By the mid 1600's, this name had become Cranberry, first noted in a letter by a Cape Cod missionary in 1647.
    Native Americans used Cranberries extensively as medicine, and as a preservative to help keep meats fresh.
