This is the blend that Misty made for herself and the family to keep us all ticking along and not freaking out too much during this pandemic lockdown

She thought she would offer it to the magickal misty tribe as its been a bit of a hit round our place. The chocolatey caramelly vanilla base is a blend of free trade organic cacao and maca ( from our friends at Seleno Health) and vanilla . Cacao is a bit of a blessing in and of itself in the morning, a nourishing enveloping, magnesium rich yum. It’s no great wonder that cacao used to be more prized than gold. When blended with feel good nourishing tonic herb and adaptogenic maca, it becomes an all encompassing whole body tonic. But thats not it my friends.

She then took my three favourite calming adaptogens - ashwagandha, holy basil and reishi -these herbs are adaptogens meaning that they act like trainers for the stress system. They help the stress system to recover and come back to your baseline calm more quickly. These particular three also have a calming action for the mind and spirit, with reishi and ashwagandha being perfect for those that end up tossing and turning with zombie apocalypse dreams all night ( guilty) as they have a slight sedative action.

Don’t worry - you wont be drowsing at the breakfast table but you might be less phased about the prospect of teaching the kids math you thought you had left behind forever in 95 or braving the line at the supermarket. And as many of us are now either going back to work , trying to muster up self control to work from home or slipping into the teacher role, you might need some help to recall all that long division and to focus more on the workload and less on whats in the fridge. That's where lions mane comes in. The brain-boosting mushroom, is helpful for keeping the focus on the stuff you should be focusing on while also keeping the mood a bit more on the positive and calmer side. It also has benefits for those of us that tend towards an upset stomach when times get tough. Misty didn't forget about the immunity stuff too. I guess that's the most pertinent thing for most folks right now. Cordyceps is a rejuvenating adaptogen, perfect for people whose immunity is declining with age. It was also traditionally used as a lung tonic and has some pretty great studies to support this. Chaga in addition has proven popular at this time, potentially as it is another immune modulator which can aid the immune system sentries to sense and attack foreign bodies. It also feeds gut flora which in turn help train the immune system babies! This blend doesn’t need to be added to anything. It’s like the total adaptogenic hot chocolate blend. Just add 1 - 2 teaspoons to hot water or hot mylk ( plus sweetener if you like) for a nourishing, any time of the day drink. You could add it to smoothies too if you want to. Ok for the kids too.

Gives you about 15- 20 serves
