Herbs for the summer season of heat and sun!
Days spent out on the grass with our bare feet planted directly on the Earth sends incredible summer vibrations to every aspect of our soul! Sipping an cold iced beverage in the heat of the radiant sun makes us feel alive and happy. Get outside! It’s easy to get consumed by our computers, jobs and other daily tasks, but it’s ever so important to get and soak up that vitamin D that we all need.
The herbalism community is very in touch with the natural world around them, we knew that there must be some wonderful herbal concoctions on Poppy Swap that we can bring into our summer days. So we went exploring through our seller’s galleries for some great summer picks!
