This loose leaf tea blend, Rooted Tea, was designed to help us ground and connect to the earth beneath our feet. When you sip this tangy, earthy tea you might feel your self fall into your body. One person said she felt as if roots were growing from her feet into the ground. It helps to take our heads out of the clouds and root them firmly in the earth where we feel safe, held, and secure.
This was made with the first Chakra or root chakra in mind, located at the base of the spine/pelvic region. It is said to be our physical manifestation of the connection of our bodies to the earth. When properly functioning it helps us with grounding, stability, physical needs, feelings of security (financial, spiritual, and physical), survival, and manifestations in the physical world.
People with first chakra imbalance often feel insecurity, depression, anxiety, and other feelings of not being supported, safe, and held. They often have their head in the clouds while lacking awareness of what is happening around them. They are easily drained by others and do better in seclusion. They have a hard time relaxing and trusting in what will be.
Common physical imbalances of people with 1st chakra issues includes being accident prone, anemia, brittle bones, immune system inefficiency (frequent infections, autoimmune conditions, etc.), drained energy, poor circulation, hemorrhoids, and varicose veins.
The herbs in this tea are wonderful for grounding, but you will also find they help to balance the body. If you are working on your root chakra and your ability to manifest things in the physical world, or helping to ease physical, mental and emotional insecurities this tea blend is one for you.
When you sip it, take a deep calming breath, sip, and feel the tea working in your body. I find this to be the perfect morning brew to start the day connected and tuned in to the earth beneath my feet.
