Chill Bitters Elixir

Ms. Tea

Chill Bitters Elixir

$20.00
A chilled out blend of aromatic nervine herbs and flower and gem essences to ease tension and anxiety, support relaxed digestion, and soften into restorative care. Lemon balm brings joy, calms scattered thoughts, and helps soothe hot tempers; chamomile and lavender reduce spasm, support digestion, and ease tension; tulsi and skullcap restore the nerves after periods of burnout from stress and anxiety, and help resist oxidative stress; calendula gently drives this blend into the belly to repair the gut, support digestion, and keep things sunny; and essences of amethyst, wild bergamot, and self-heal support grounding, calm, and flexibility through transition. 

1fl oz

(all organic California grown fresh)lemon balm (melissa off.), chamomile flowers (matricaria recutita), lavender flowers (lavandula spp.), skullcap herb (scutellaria lateriflora), calendula flowers, holy basil (ocimum sanctum), organic cane & grape spirits (40% abv) local raw honey, flower & gem essences of amethyst, bee balm and self-heal

Take 5-20 drops on the tongue before meals or as needed. 

Founded by Levi Leigh Barringer (they/them), a bioregional herbalist, medicine maker, and visual creative residing in Petaluma, California, Ms. Tea is an apothecary of handcrafted and ethically sourced herbs from local farms and herb growers, as well as Levi’s own medicinal herb garden. Levi listens and tends to plants to foster regenerative and reciprocal relationships with the deep magic of human and more-than-human worlds…and Levi has supported people from all walks of life seeking to build relationships with plants and work with herbs in various ways.

Levi’s plant path started with their first teacher: the land. What began in childhood as climbing trees in the Wabash River watershed in southern Indiana later became a deeply felt sense of place when they first experienced the Sonoran Desert bloom in 2012. Over time, Levi has committed to nurturing relationships with lands, waters, their protectors…and weaving those teachings into their medicine and work. Ms. Tea started as a play on words: a slippery pun, an ode to our primordial origins in water. The ancestral memory held in streams, rivers, ocean.

In 2016, Levi began shifting their herbal practice towards mutual aid and organizing by sending herbs to water protectors at Standing Rock. Collective care is a cornerstone of Levi’s practice, not as an act of generosity, but as a way to cultivate more resilient communities. They currently work with other local herbalists as part of Bay Area Herbal Response Team to help further their mission to connect low income folks and communities impacted by systemic injustice with herbal consults and education.

Levi’s craft is informed by their roots as a rural queer and navigating historical trauma and grief through their own somatic work. Herbalism came to Levi through land connection, field botany, and backcountry camping along desert washes, alpine ranges, and riparian waterways. They left their full-time design job in 2017 to pursue herbalism and find ways to deepen their creative practice.

Levi studied as a vitalist herbal practitioner with course work in Astro herbalism with the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, and expanded their practitioner skills with Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. Levi studied holistic protocols, advanced formulation, herbal safety, and ethics with Wild Current Herbalism, with whom they are currently taking on a rigorous clinical mentorship.
