Liver Love Iced Infusion

As our frozen rivers and lakes begin to flow again, it's a great time to tend to our inner waterways. Adding cleansing herbs to your daily routine this spring is a gentle way to wake up the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system after a long winter. 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the spring season is associated with the liver and gallbladder. 

These organ systems are essential in processing and filtering out accumulated toxins and waste, and promoting cellular renewal. As we transition into summer, supporting these detoxification pathways with nourishing herbs and superfoods can help us feel more vital, vibrant and energetic over the active summer months. 

This Liver Love Iced Infusion is easy to make, refreshing, and stimulating to our internal waterways! Our Liver TLC Tincture and Cleanse Artisan Tea feature restorative herbs for spring renewal, such as Burdock and Dandelion Root. 

Dandelion Root helps to clear out liver congestion and boost digestive wellness. Rich in antioxidants, Dandelion Root regenerates tissues that have been harmed by free radicals. 

Burdock Root purifies the blood, kidneys, lymphatic system and GI tract. It strengthens lymphatic function and assists the body in detoxifying metabolic waste. 

Milk Thistle Seed protects healthy liver cells from inflammation and free radical damage. Packed with a complex flavonoid called “silymarin”, Milk Thistle Seed stimulates the production of glutathione- one of the body’s major antioxidants. 

You’ll Need: 

2 Cups Boiled Water

2 TBSP Harmonic Arts’ Cleanse Artisan Tea

4 Dropperfuls Harmonic Arts’ Liver TLC Tincture

Lime Slices 

Handful of Fresh Mint

Honey or maple syrup to taste

1 Large Mason Jar 


  1. Place Cleanse Blend Tea in a large mason jar. 
  2. Fill mason jar by pouring boiled water over the tea leaves. 
  3. Seal the jar with a tight-fitting lid to keep the steam and volatile oils from escaping. 
  4. Allow the infusion to steep until the water cools to room temperature, or for a minimum of 4 hours. Add honey or maple syrup to taste, if desired.
  5. Strain tea from infusion using a fine-mesh strainer. Add lime slices and fresh mint leaves and refrigerate. 
  6. Sip when you need a refreshing and cleansing pick-me-up!

DHA Softgels are the superstar nutrient for supporting healthy brain growth and function. 60% of the brain grows from, develops from and is comprised of fats and oils. Of these, 50% is just one fatty acid: DHA. DHA is also particularly abundant in the nervous system, and therefore it may help support healthy nervous system function and development.

ChildLife Essentials Pure DHA is derived from cod liver oil and is therefore ready for your child’s body to absorb and utilize. Some children prefer the taste and texture of these naturally berry-flavored soft gel capsules which can be chewed or swallowed. When it comes to cod liver oil, it is critical that the product be purified and free of detectable levels of toxins. ChildLife uses the finest purification methods available, such as molecular distillation, to safely remove toxins without compromising on quality.

In the course of knowing and treating thousands of children, I have observed that good diet and nutritional supplements are the cornerstone for the development and maintenance of good health.” ~ Dr. Murray Clarke

Children’s Tea

A wonderful tea for children and adults alike. Children’s Tea contains Linden flower and leaf, one of the traditional uses of linden was “quelling hysteria” and decreasing anxiety-related symptoms, such as indigestion, heart palpitations, and vomiting.

Studies suggest that linden extract may have calming effects because it mimics the effects of the neurotransmitter GABA which inhibits excitability in the nervous system. The presence of antioxidants such as flavonoids is also thought to help regulate nervous system activity.

Paired with calendula, fennel seeds and orange peel for soothing digestive upsets makes for a delicious tea. Find the Children’s Tea on the tea section of the Apothecary!

Ingredients: Linden flower and leaf, rose petals, fennel seeds, orange peel, and calendula petals

Essentials & Essences

island essentials serene dream eo.jpg

Island Essentials Serene Dream Blend

This calming, uplifting blend from Island Essentials includes:

Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil

Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil

Lavandula Hybrida Grosso (Lavandin) Herb Oil

Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile) Flower Oil

Roman Chamomile is commonly used in the natural treatment of anxiety/ depression, eczema, fever, heartburn, nausea, and insomnia. It has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, and it's commonly used for hay fever. It has the power to relieve mucus congestion, irritations, swelling, and skin conditions that are associated with seasonal allergy symptoms.

For centuries, mothers have used chamomile to calm crying children, reduce fevers, eliminate earaches and soothe upset stomachs. It's often called the "kid calmer" because of its ability to help children with ADD/ADHD. it's one of the gentlest essential oils on the planet, making it great for infants and children.

Lavender and Lavandin essential oils are some of the most versatile essential oils. They are distilled from the lavender plant and carry fresh, clean, calming aromas. They have been used for thousands of years for their many benefits and healing properties to the mind, body, and soul.

The difference between these types of essential oil is that Lavandin naturally contains camphor whereas Lavender does not. This means that the smell of Lavandin is stronger and more pungent and is best used for its aromatic benefits. Lavender has a milder, sweeter smell that is best used for its calming benefits. Lavender helps promote relaxation, restful sleep, headache relief, and it can be used as an antimicrobial on minor cuts, burns, and acne to disinfect and soothe the affected area.

Orange peel has a cheerful and uplifting yet simultaneously relaxing, calming effect that helps reduce pulse rate. It can not only create a warm environment but can also stimulate the strength and resilience of the immune system and eliminate airborne bacteria. Applied in a massage, Orange Essential Oil is known to increase blood flow. This is known to relieve discomforts associated with inflammation, headache. Orange oil reduces the incidents of painful and reflexive muscle contractions. It is traditionally used in massages to relieve stress, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, indigestion or improper digestion, and congestion of the nose.
