Herbal Safety With Infusions - Labrador tea, juniper berries, and mugwort are potent herbs that must be used carefully. We recommend a light infusion of this blend as a “tisane” and make sure to drink in mindful amounts with breaks between.
Most of our blends were made for a specific person or to support someone with a specific ailment in mind. We encourage you to use the herbal infusions you get from Blueberryjams as an opportunity (or prompt) to get to know the plant medicines they contain. We recommend, like Rosemary Gladstar, that you learn about a plant from three different sources.
When using new herbs, verify that they are not counter-indicated with any existing medical issue/medications you are taking. Start with small doses and listen to your body.
