Balancing the Solar Plexus with Herbs

I am all about some herbs and secretly hop around every time it's time to get down to the herbal side of chakra alignment. Herbs are so much fun to learn about and so easy to grow and incorporate in your daily life. If you haven't started an herb garden by now you should really consider it, many of these are super easy to grow and will help you stay steady with your practice. 

The solar plexus is such an important part of our existence and allows us to embrace our individuality and uniqueness. We need to nurture and care for this power center. And one way to assist in balancing it is of course herbs. Rosemary, fennel, cinnamon and lemongrass are great herbs to use in teas and in cooking. Garlic, anise, peppermint and spearmint are also great herbs for balance as well. Mint is easy to grow and helps to keep mosquitos at bay as well as soothe upset stomachs. Lemongrass is one of my favorites and it grows on my porch. I often use it to make hot and iced teas as well as Thai lemongrass soup. I use mushroom broth instead of fish sauce and chicken broth. Here's a video below on how to make Thai Lemongrass Soup.
