What if you could shift your state of mind on demand without overwhelming your body with dangerous side effects, all while remaining sober? This is a weighted question of course. There is much research available about meditation practices, exercise, listening to music and strategically consuming particular foods. But the “magic” available in each tin of Dropping Seeds multi use herbal blends is a powerful tool intended to support arguably the most sophisticated technologies you’ll ever get your hands on … your emotional and mental states. Each herbal blend helps to stimulate a desired state that can help you access your emotions or mental state in combination with your intentions. Here are 5 ways you can use organic herbal blends.

The first cup of tea is said to have been born in an accident thousands of years ago where a Chinese Emperor was boiling water and had leaves from a nearby bush unexpectedly blow into his pot. This became the first born of teas, evolving over the centuries into the herbal and medicinal teas of today.

My favorite caffeine replacement is FOCUS blend. With its Yerba Mate and Ginkgo herbs, it truly allows me to focus on my day without the jitters.

To make your perfect cup, boil 8 cups of spring water and add 1 tablespoon of herb to a tea ball. Steep the tea ball in your cup of warm spring water for 10 mins & get your day going!

Herbal baths have been popular since the age of primeval Romans and Greeks. They took herbal baths not only for the curative properties, but also for enhancing beauty and influence on the mind. The active elements in the herbs are directly soaked by your skin and are then transported to the blood vessels where they have a positive effect on our internal systems.

My favorite herbal steam bath to take after going hard at the gym is RELAX herbal blend. The Passion flower and Hops are great muscle relaxants to take the muscle soreness away. Start with filling up a tub with warm water, next fill a Muslim bag with 1/2 a cup of herbs and fully dip the closed bag into the bath along with a 1/2 a cup of Epsom salt. After 10 mins, get in and relaxxxxx.

COOK ~

Food and love are inexorably linked, thanks to a complex hormonal reaction that affects our emotional attachments to loved ones and our need for food.

Is your man into chicken or fish, use HIS herbal blend to season it the way you would use salt and pepper. The cloves in the blend will give your dish a warm, sweet and spicy taste. Or if your girl loves her salad, a mix of olive oil with HERS herbal blend will give it a zesty orange kick and floral jasmine scent.

Want to skip dinner and go straight to the desert, make tea out of each blend and mix in cacao (also an aphrodisiac) for some steamy hot chocolate!

SMOKE ~

Cannabis and tobacco isn’t the only herb that can be smoked. For thousand of years, indigenous cultures have used a variety of herbs for ceremonial and medicinal use. Today you don’t even have to smoke the herbs, you can vape which I personally love because you have a more intimate experience with the taste and smell of the herbs.

CALM herbal blend gently takes me to my happy place with the scent of Lavender and calms my racing mind with the combination of Damiana and Skullcap.

Even though I recommend vaping over smoking, if you enjoy smoking then I recommend a pipe so that you don’t have to smoke the chemicals in the paper you roll in. If you go the vape route, make sure you get a vaporizer that vapes dried herbs.

MISTING SPRAY ~

Smell is the strongest of the senses and is best able to influence brain activity. When your feel run down and tired, you can use a misting spray to invigorate and restore your spirit.

SYNC is my favorite smelling herbal blend. The Rose soothes you while the Spearmint sweatily invigorates you. Not to mention the Mugwort will activate your pineal gland (aka third eye) to synchronize you into your day. Once you steep the herbal blend in warm spring water, you can pour the “tea” mist into a spray bottle and keep it refrigerated for up to 2-4 weeks.

Use your misting spray rather then the chemically filled air fresheners or add a few drops of vitamin E and use on your skin!
