One of our favorites, this blend so beautifully harmonizes tulsi with wild California rose petals...all grown in Earth Tide Botanicals' mountainside beyond-organic garden, of course! With tulsi to bring a sense of calm and wholeness, its abundance of volatile oils, antioxidant molecules, and phenolic compounds crucial for balancing hormones and repairing damage from external stressors, as well as its ability to protect and detoxify organs and tissues (particularly the liver) and enhance cellular healing and repair; and wild rose to provide its heart-centered, relaxing medicine - honoring the importance of emotional strength in keeping ourselves healthy - as well as its ability to tone tissues and tighten barriers to ensure our bodies are safe from harm, and its incredible qualities of soothing irritated or inflamed tissues.
Tulsi (holy basil)* + wild California rose petals* infused into brandy + raw, local mountain honey
*All plants grown with love and organic practices in Earth Tide Botanicals' mountainside California garden.
Restore is designed for tonic use: consistent doses over time (half to a full dropper per day) to promote healthier responses to stress, hormone regulation, tissue support + heart-centered healing.
With a name that honors the movements of the Earth's crust, which rolls in tides just like the ocean, connected to the pull of the moon, Earth Tide Botanicals founders Alena and Danny, lovingly tend to, nurture, and grow every medicinal herb in their blends on their beyond-organic land set atop the slopes of a gentle mountain two miles inland from the southern California coast. Their garden is nourished by the coastal fog that rolls in and out of the canyon, surrounded by high and dry ridgelines, but held in the dense embrace of a healthy oak woodland.
They utilize more-than-organic practices, honoring the biodiversity of the forest they call home: working to build their soil with rich compost, minimal tilling, and cover crops to reduce their water needs and honor the reality of drought in southern California.
Danny (who draws all the tiny paintings on the tincture labels) grew up in the mountains nearby and spent many years as a working artist before becoming interested in growing medicinal plants. Alena grew up in the deciduous jungles of the Southeast and has spent the last decade as an organic farmer and native plant gardener. They met during an apprenticeship at a medicinal herb farm and have been growing and making medicine together ever since.
