Herbs for Root Chakra

If you've been following me over the past year you know that herbs get me really excited. I've been studying herbs and learning different herbal teas and drinks from a bushman in the Virgin Islands. A Bushman is what we call a natural healer in the Caribbean. I've been making teas, growing herbs and now I'm excited to share some of this info with you guys. 

The root chakra pulls power from herbs that are often red in color, no surprise there, but also spicy foods. Have you ever suddenly been craving spicy foods? I know I have. Perhaps that's your body's way of trying to tell you that you need to balance out a little. If you can stand it you want to add a little chili or cayenne pepper to your food for a balanced root chakra. Pungent herbs like horseradish, hot paprika or cloves also work. If you're not a fan of any of these try making a cup of dandelion tea. This tea works wonders at fighting cancer and also keeps that root chakra in check.  Here is an article on how to harvest and use dandelion root. 

Thanks for following along this week! Tomorrow begins our journey with the sacral chakra!
