Spring Forward with Intention

Springtime in the Treasure Valley is such a special season for us. Foothills are painted with Arrowleaf Balsamroot, our gardens start to wake up, the birds are singing . . . all symbolizing the beginning of new life. Yet, it's hard to think about spring when we are currently experiencing Idaho's second winter here in the Treasure Valley! We hope you are staying warm, healthy, and cozy.

Let's spring forward with intention. Spring is traditionally associated with birth and renewal, a welcome fresh chapter after a long winter. The time has (or will) come for new life to begin. Things are growing!

Before you know it, spring will be here! With the blooming and new growth, spring can also bring up seasonal allergies. Head to our blog to read Spring Allergies: The Vervain Collective's Holistic Approach. You will find our favorite go-to remedies to ease into this sneezy time of year!

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

What is Turmeric?

Spring forward with a healthy liver!

“Spring is the season when the life forces awaken again. The sap begins to flow; the plants begin their life cycle; the streams and rivers are gushing. In our bodies, too, our life flow awakens with force." -Rosemary Gladstar

Chinese Medicine also considers spring to be the time of peak Liver & Gallbladder energy time. A sluggish, stagnant, or deficient liver can't keep up with the stimulation of spring, and can exacerbate health conditions and lead to skin conditions, allergies, headaches, and more. You can provide a daily kick to your liver and digestive processes with bitters! We have a plethora of delicious herbal bitters for mocktails or use directly on the tongue 15-minutes before meals.

Other naturopathic tools for liver, lymph, and digestive support are:

Castor Oil Packs (check out this video on how to use the castor oil pack!)
