When: All day every day!
Why: It is time. Well-being is a process as much as it is an active state of being. Making the decision to heal, to take care of oneself physically/mentally/spiritually, allowing oneself to be nurtured, is a very personal choice and often not truly supported by conventional medicine. Rebel Herbal exists to provide medicinal alternatives that are rooted in nature and bring balance to the whole person. We offer a line of medicinal teas formulated to support the body’s systems and their interdependence. For a significant evaluation and customized formulas to support the individual, private consultations are available. However a person chooses to approach their unique path to wellness, a commitment to oneself and to the work it takes to get healthy is essential.
How: Drink more tea! Meditate! Go outside! Don’t be afraid to take care of your mental health! Learn about the plants in your yard! Consume with intention!
