Every herb has its own unique personality, benefits, actions, and drawbacks. Some herbs are drying, some are moistening...some are heating to the body, others are cooling, etc.
Any herbalist will tell you: not every herb is right for every person, all the time. If you are going to work with herbs consistently, it’s wise to also work with someone who has deeply studied those plants and can guide you to what’s good for your body, right now.
The herbalist who created the formula for Rasa, who is one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever known, took this all into account when crafting Rasa. She understood that you can’t necessarily say “A blend of X herbs will be great for everyone.”
BUT, she truly did her best to formulate something that would be not only safe, but nourishing, for most people, most of the time. She worked to balance: * Elements: hot and cold, dry and moist.
* Actions: a key axis here is the balance between energizing and calming—hence why we say Rasa gives you “calm energy” (it really does!)
* Benefits: going for a full-body, holistic nourishment and vitality. Several of the herbs in Rasa are classic longevity herbs, designed to be taken over long periods.
So, while no formula can be everything to everyone, we sure did our best here at Rasa! The result is a blend of herbs that *is* safe, nourishing, and vitalizing for *most* people, *most* of the time...and I’ve been falling more and more in love with it the more I understand and experience it.
Have you ever worked with an herbalist or another health practitioner who has prescribed you herbs? Which herbs do you take? Tell me about it below! ⬇️ I geek out on this stuff. 😍🌿🙌

JING + ROAST WATTLE TONIC RECIPE⠀
Sometimes you comes across a combo of ingredients that are SO good that you know life will never be the same. Even better is when one of the ingredients is an uber sustainable and nutritious bushtucker like roasted wattle seed! This Australian native is next level delicious and packed full of deep nutrition for core energy, the bones and the kidneys; a perfect combination with our adrenal and Kidney nourishing JING. ⠀
Wattle seed has been a staple for native Australians, especially as the crop can survive severe weather, drought and fire better than most. It is super high in protein, low glycemic and contains good doses of minerals potassium, calcium, iron and zinc (which tells us this is a Jing food). You can grab your wattle from @oztukka.
When partnered with our JING blend and mesquite it makes for a magical flavour bomb that will for sure become a staple in your tonic creation repertoire.⠀
The JING + Wattle Tonic Recipe ⠀
* 250 ml hot almond milk ⠀
* 1 tsp ground roasted wattle seed⠀ * 1 tsp JING ⠀
* 1 heaped tsp organic butter ⠀
* 1 tsp mesquite ⠀
* 1 tsp raw local honey ⠀
* 1/8 tsp nutmeg (grated fresh) to garnish You can grab your roasted wattle ⠀
Add all ingredients except nutmeg to a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a beautiful mug, grate fresh nutmeg on top and enjoy the epic deliciousness! 📸 by the legendary @heidi.flora

Foraging for Wild Asparagus is a type of communion in and of itself. One the most ancient and spiritually potent medicinal plants in history - used in Native American Herbalism, Traditional Chinese Medicine and among Taoist monks, it has been said that the ROOT of Wild Asparagus will give a person a person the ability to fly. 🦋
Referred to in TCM as Tian Men Dong or Heavenly Spirit Root, it reportedly cultivates an increased sense of compassion, opening the heart center and relaxing an overactive mind. Individuals taking Wild Asparagus Root for prolonged amounts of time say that it has increased their levels of joy and happiness.
This herb has also been traditionally used as a powerful sexual tonic for both men and women, similar to the Ayurvedic herb Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus). Its ability to open the heart, relax the mind and increase bodily fluid plays a key factor as an aphrodisiac and sexual tonic. The nutrients contained in the root are known to help infertility, genital dryness and address sexual inhibitions.
Since this herb relaxes the mind and helps reduce stress it can be used as a wonderful sleepy time herbal remedy. Wild Asparagus Root is also known as a dream inducing herb or Oneirogen. Many people including Taoists report having lucid dreams in which they are flying or soaring through the sky.
I've foraged enough of this elegant herb in the Maine Highlands this summer to offer bottles of the tincture for sale. Wild Asparagus Root will also be included and historically referenced in our Herbal Medicine CSA Share this fall/vata season. PM me for details on purchasing either a bottle or CSA Share. 💟🕊️🌱🍁 #wildasparagus #ayurveda #taoism #tibetanmedicine #traditionalchinesemedicine #spirit #flying #asparagus #root #openyourheart #compassion #mentalhealth #shen #tonicherbs #maine #foraging #csa #herbal #wildherbalism #rewilding #dreaming #happiness #goodsexlife #asparagusseason #medicinalherbs #maine #tincture

(WHAT IS A TONIC ELIXIR?- & A RECIPE). What is an Elixir?
The word Elixir is rooted from Greece. It is known as “medicinal powder” and is often referred to as the clear sweet flavoured liquid used for medicinal purposes.
Tonic Elixirs, which are a daily staple for me, are unique formulas that use tonic herbs that are designed to be taken daily, with no adverse side effects. These are superior herbs that are usually adaptogenic and are used to promote inner beauty and longevity.
Tonic herbs are a FOOD. They nourish the immune system and create true vitality. They are often adaptogenic herbs. There are some herbs such as asparagus root and Reishi that work on the emotional and energetic body system. These herbs can aid in creating inner peace, especially if your feeling overworked & stressed. Tonic herbs can and should be taken daily for best results as they have a profound accumulative effect!
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDICINAL HERBS AND TONIC HERBS "The main difference between a medicinal herb and a tonic herb is that medicinal herbs can and do fix illness or a problem, that is what they are for. For example, chilli and garlic both kill parasites, and ginger is good for a cold. Tonic herbs, on the other hand, may fix an illness but they won’t do it directly; they do it by showing your body how to fix itself. For example, if you have a cold it may help to take some of the noble mushrooms like Reishi or Chaga"Elwin Robinson..................

🍄✨ Tremella mushroom (Tremella fuciformis) is one of the great longevity tonics in Traditional Chinese medicine. Known as the “beauty mushroom”, this jelly fungus resembles a loofah shower sponge which is appropriate given its incredible beauty enhancing properties.
🧖♀️ Tremella is an incredible youth-preserving mushroom that has the ability to rejuvenate, moisturise, and hydrate the skin naturally. Tremella contains unique polysaccharide compounds that show remarkable water retaining properties. Its water holding capacity is nearly five hundred times it own weight. This is greater than hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring carbohydrate found in the body that is commonly used in expensive skincare products to retain the skin’s moisture. As we age, the production of HA in the body declines. Modern science has shown that Tremella can increase the production of HA in the body.
💦 Tremella’s rehydration benefits may be the best reason to support its claims as one of the best beauty foods for the skin. Many doctors and experts agree that dehydration is a major factor in many of the common illnesses and diseases that we face today. Tremella delivers intensive hydration powers that can help combat chronic dehydration and improve overall health.
Tremella also stimulates the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the most important antioxidant enzymes in the body. SOD helps to protect and regenerate the skin as well as effectively prevent wrinkling and sagging of the skin.
👘 Yang Guifei (719-756, Tang Dynasty) was one of the “Four Great Beauties” in ancient China and is considered one of the most beautiful women in Chinese history. She was so beautiful that she was referred to as having a “face that would put flowers to shame.” It was reported that one of Yang Guifei’s secrets was to use Tremella mushroom regularly to maintain her glowing complexion and youthful skin.
🍄 Tremella mushroom is one of the top beauty superfoods. Regular consumption of this mushroom makes it easy for us to maintain perfect and flawless skin as we age.

Day 14 of #30DaysOfJING
and we just wanted to share a little more about this magical energy that you're rebuilding with these herbs.🔮🔮🔮⠀
Jing (along with Qi and Shen) is one of the Three Treasures identified by the Taoist Masters of ancient China, and it is an especially relevant concept for us modern humans to understand. Why? Well, Jing is the Yin manifestation of energy as matter in the body and it is the fundamental potential for life and growth in the body. Sounds important, hey? It is if you plan on living for a long time. Jing is where all of our energy comes from; it is the precursor to Qi and the key to a healthy, happy life lived aligned with our heart’s purpose.⠀
This is precisely what Taoist Master Xiangchuan was referring to when he said:⠀
"Jing can generate Qi, and Qi can generate Shen; there is nothing greater than a healthy body brimming with ying [Jing] and wei [Qi]! A practitioner seeking to nourish life must first of all treasure his Jing. If the Jing is plentiful, there will be abundant Qi; if Qi is abundant, there will be abundant Shen; and if Shen is abundant, the body will be strong. Finally, if the body is strong, there will be no disease."⠀
We often use the example of Sir Keith Richards as someone who has a lot of Jing and is living his purpose with seemingly boundless energy despite his age and excess. Unfortunately, not all of us were blessed with such a deep spring of Jing! 😜⠀
Taking JING herbs daily is a way we can bring the ancient longevity practice of tonic herbalism into our daily lives; even better when it's served up in epic elixirs like this!
#CreatingSuperhumans #SuperFeast #JING

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take
My friends, I can’t even express to you how often it has been that I’ve sat at a conference, listened to a podcast, or watched a lecture & discovered that the people who possess the coveted secrets of success share one defining characteristic: Failure.
A master has failed more times than a beginner has even tried
By now the narrative has become almost cliché: “I became a millionaire in my 20’s or 30’s, lost it all, had to move back in with my parents or sleep in my car, became a millionaire again, lost it all again, made it all back..” All the while, many of us are either too reluctant to risk anything once we’ve found a miniscule hint of stability or too petrified to try again once we’ve failed.
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
This narrative has led me to the believe that perhaps, just like everything else, there is a formula for success. But, in order for it to work, there must first be the unwavering belief that there is abundance & the only thing that separates you from this abundance is the knowledge of how to acquire it and/or the will to go out and claim it.
Anybody who has cracked the code would convince you that there is certainly nothing hard about becoming successful. It seems that we mistake our own frustration for level of difficulty (frustration makes ANYTHING seem more difficult) but, similar to mathematics, once we discover the formula for solving a seemingly complex equation the solution becomes glaringly obvious and the application of this formula produces consistent results.
If your path towards success feels like an uphill battle against hurricane winds you either haven’t found the formula or you aren’t aligning with your highest path. Don’t let your own stubbornness prevent you from quickening your success or exploring new pathways towards it.

When one enters the realm of healing, one enters a world of much esoteric knowledge, and of an infinity of conclusions, and one is faced with with formulations of many minds, who, throughout the ages, have sought to heal and help.
The principles of Taoist herbology and their philosophies, that have been protected and preserved throughout the ages, are beyond profound, and to us, resonate throughout all walks of life. Perhaps the most frequently portrayed aspect of Taoism we feel crosses the threshold into such simple healing, is the understanding of the unobstructed flow of life; as it is said in the Tao Te Ching: "The world is ruled by letting things take their course, it cannot be ruled by interfering." For letting things take their course can be described as "being in true harmony with nature." Nature is one with the Tao, and to not go against nature is to be in harmony with nature.
Harmony with nature requires yielding, but it essentially results in great things.
Our harmonizing herbal formulas deliver direct downloads of this ancient alchemy, and can be the most effortless and effective way to throw you full force into the unobstructed flow of life, accessing the deepest levels of healing, and coloring the world with collages of creativity and wonder wherever you go.
