Clearing Space for Chinese New Year

5 Ways to Make your Home a Wellness Sanctuary

Our living space has a tremendous effect upon our mental and physical health and well-being. When people walk into our storefront in Westport, CT, very often they immediately take a big breath in and say, “Wow! it smells so nice in here.” Or as they walk around the store browsing our teas and wellness products they mention how calming the space is. And when clients come out of an acupuncture or massage session, they often linger in our store front to soak up the good vibes and peacefully drink a cup of tea before moving on with their day. Everyday I see people coming in to our store and immediately being uplifted, soothed and reminded to breathe deeply upon entering our peaceful environment. What makes a space healing for your mind and body? And how can you bring these elements into your own life so that you too can make your home a wellness sanctuary?

Art of Tisane

Having grown up in China, I was exposed to a wide array of medicinal and culinary herbs on a regular daily basis. As I think back to my childhood, I am flooded with memories of “Ba Bao Cha”, reverently known as the “eight treasure tea”, my mom made for me each morning. This delightful and uplifting concoction is a blend of eight common ingredients found within Chinese cuisine and herbal medicine: Chrysanthemum, Goji Berry, Honeysuckle, Licorice, Red Date, Hawthorn Berry, Dried Tangerine Rind, and Brown Sugar.
