Frequently Asked Questions
We suggest enjoying 1-3 cups of steeped tea daily, according to the current phase of your menstrual cycle to get the most benefits from these teas. We recommend beginning your Inner Seasons journey by starting with the Inner Spring tea blend after your bleed time has ended (the follicular phase is a great time to begin a new adventure!) and then move to the Inner Summer tea approximately one week later, the Inner Autumn during the week before your bleed, and Inner Winter during your period.

The herbal tea blends are design to nourish the female body and will likely help support your overall health, mood and wellbeing.

The transition of perimenopause into the post-menopausal years can be tumultuous and confusing as you navigate life from such a cyclical experience into a time of no longer tracking the months by your body’s rhythms. As this happens, we recommend shifting your cycle tracking to aligning with the lunar phases — and we have teas just for that! To help anchor in a new rhythm of life, we suggest working with the Dark Moon and Full Moon Lunar Ritual Teas. Drinking the Dark Moon Lunar Ritual Tea for the week before and the week after Dark/New Moon, and the Full Moon Lunar Ritual Tea the week before and after the Full Moon.
Stay tuned! We are working on crafting very specific blends to support the hormonal shifts happening during peri and post-menopause. Hop on the mailing list to be the first to hear of new product releases!
