Ms. Tea

Tranquility | Calming Herbal Elixir

$20.00

Melt away aches and pains from daily stress, release tension, ease muscle spasm, reduce circular thoughts, let yourself surrender to infinite calm, and breathe into stillness. Ms. Tea's most beloved potion starring all California grown plant allies of California poppy, catnip, passionflower, pedicularis, blue vervain, and flower essences unite in fresh glycerites, raw local honey, and organic spirits for a delicious elixir that can be enjoyed all on its own. California poppy helps ease pain, anxiety, and discomfort; passionflower comforts and reduces circular thought patterns; catnip helps the body deeply relax while supporting a healthy nervous system response; pedicularis brings this blend to the next level of chill by helping to release all manner of tension; and a flower essence blend of passionflower and clematis to help create a bridge between our lived experience and the beyond and anchor us down into our bodies and the earth. To behold the truth of our soul purpose beyond ego, pride, and toil.

1fl oz

(all organic california grown) california poppy root, leaves & flowers (eschscholzia californica), passionflower (passiflora incarnata), catnip herb (nepata cataria), blue vervain (verbena hastata), pedicularis densiflora, essences of passionflower & clematis, organic cane & grape spirits (50% ABV), vegetable glycerin and local raw honey

Take 5–10 drops up to 4x/day for pain relief, deep rest, and relaxation.

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.
