Vernal Vitality Elixir | Lymph Tonic

Ms. Tea

Vernal Vitality Elixir | Lymph Tonic

$20.00

A blend of spring green tonic herbs to open the channels of elimination, support the lymph, release stagnant fluids, assist detoxification, and strengthen the nervous system. With fresh nettle to help sustain energy levels throughout the day, build healthy blood, and move damp stagnation; lemon balm to restore frazzled nerves and call in joy to lighten the effects of stress; chickweed and cleavers to assist with the absorption of minerals and nutrients from food and the metabolism of fats; and flower essences of Oregon grape and agrimony to help move stagnant energy from grief and trauma, transform rather than mask emotional pain, and support inner validation rather than seeking approval from others. An overall support for vitality, this elixir is a mover of all kinds.

1fl oz

All organic California-grown: fresh stinging nettle leaf (urtica dioica), cleavers (galium aparine), lemon balm (melissa off.), chickweed herb (stellaria media), dandelion leaf (taraxacum off.), lemon peel glycerites, organic cane and grape spirits (50% abv), essence of oregon grape and agrimony

Take 10-20 drops up to 3x daily.

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.
