Herb of the Week: BLUE VERVAIN

End of Week Reset

Blue vervain is a bitter, cooling plant that helps support both the central nervous system as well as the digestive system. Digestively its bitter nature helps to stimulate the flow of the digestive juices making it easier for the body to handle food. This bitter quality also helps to ground us back into our bodies by putting us in a parasympathetic state. In addition blue vervain helps to calm the mind causing both the body and mind to slow down and hopefully relax. This can decrease stress, tension and anxiety. This makes it the ideal way to slow down and reset the body on a Sunday for the upcoming week.  It is also great as we come to the end of the summer. It reminds us to slow down and enjoy these last few weeks. It is also cooling which can help decrease the heat that is building up in our bodies in the hot weather.
