Immune Zoom by Wooden Spoon Herbs
Wooden Spoon Herbs was introduced to me through the blog Local Milk. Always interested in any and all things Milk (Mylk), Local Milk appeals to me because of its focus on slow, conscious living; being present; travel; family; and raw, plant-based living. Lauren, founder of Wooden Spoon Herbs – a small batch Appalachian apothecary, was on the blog teaching people how to make her Golden Cocoa. I was immediately intrigued. I went to her site, wrote her a note and met her via conference call a week later.
What I love about Lauren’s products is her sourcing. All her herbs are grown in the US and produced or foraged by hand by small farmers and producers with the utmost care for the environment. These herbs are also often biodynamically farmed and organic.
Immune Zoom: If I know I’m going on an airplane, I take this for a few days before and bring it with me on my trip, too. It’s the perfect immune boost for smoothie lovers and juicers. Toss a teaspoonful into your daily smoothie routine, and let the immune-stimulating properties of flowering echinacea to go work for you. In addition, holy basil soothes and calms while fighting bad bacteria, and nettle nourishes and helps alkalize your body. This product is not a tonic, meaning ideal usage is one to two weeks.*
Ingredients: echinacea, holy basil, nettle (all organic)
To use: Add 1-2 teaspoonful daily to yogurt, honey, or a smoothie.
