In the Know
Mula root + Adhara support = Muladhara (Sanskrit) This chakra represents the foundation of that which is you. When this first energy center of the body is in balance, you feel safe in the world, and free to trust in ways that allow you to take healthy risks, knowing that all will be well.
If you regularly suffer anxiety, fear, or perhaps bad dreams while you sleep, or if you are dealing with issues of the bladder, colon, or low back and feet, you might want to focus some healing attention on your root chakra. Rather than seeking safety in the outside world, it might be wise at this time to explore your inner world, with meditations that help you connect to a higher power, or other entity you envision as God, Spirit, or simply Consciousness.
This earthy, subtle, and balanced blend, energized with the essence of the red-colored gemstone garnet, provides a mellow yet powerful sipping experience that assists those seeking a more grounded life experience.

Garnet: You probably know that garnets are red, the color representing the root chakra. What you may not be aware of is this gemstone’s reputation as the “commitment stone,” which encourages one to trust love, practice honesty, and let go into the human need to intimately connect with another.
The Gemstone Essence Process
Extracting an “essence” of a stone may sound woo-woo to those unfamiliar with using such an inanimate object when intending mental, emotional, or physical healing. However, for thousands of years, people have indeed utilized gemstones and crystals for this exact purpose. Whether practitioners place the stones on the subject’s body while conducting a session, or a person wears jewelry containing a particular stone, or even carries one or more in a pocket, using stones and crystals to facilitate wellbeing is definitely not new, and most assuredly not as esoteric as you might think.
In crafting our Chakra Tea line, our production team places the desired gemstone or crystal inside the container of dried herbs, where its essence is actually infused in the blend. In this way, while enjoying the benefits of the herbal infusion, you also take in the healing properties of the accompanying stone.
