Week One: Passion – Passion Flower Herb

Greetings,

Think Free, relax with Passion Flower tea

I hope this week finds you well into discovering, exploring, and enjoying your passion. Working, creating and thinking of all the ways you can share your talent with the world.

I know sometimes it can be a little challenging to get motivated. All the ideas and projects stored inside your brain kinda go nowhere without a little steam. As artists we are open to seeing the world in a new fresh perspective, but that openness can have its drawbacks. We may be prone to let in a little more perspective then we mean to from time to time. We tend to be able to see all sides, which makes focusing on just one side a little more difficult.

In searching for a way to reel it all in and focus, I researched, well frantically typed into Google Search, key terms relating to anxiety, relaxation, stress reduction, focus, calmness, etc. in hopes of finding a natural remedy to help me, Calm down. I discovered Passion Flower herb.

Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnate) Folk Name: Maypops, is a natural herb. While you may question how a calming herb is to help when what you are trying to do is be energetic and on the move, I’m happy to answer. I believe that passion flower’s calming and anti-anxiety effects aid in centering the mind. I find that by relaxing my mind, I am able to see my tasks, goals, and desires as they should be, tackled, works in progress or completed. I can paint for myself a more realistic picture of my motivation, aspiration, and accomplishments, even writing this post for example. I was able to determine a process or approach versus being overwhelmed by the resources, references and content I wanted to deliver.

Research:  I wanted to purchase passion flower as a loose herb for fresh pure passion flower tea, as opposed to a tea blend. I found a few sources online, but…I’m a little picky about where I buy my herbs. I visited the health food stores in the area at the time, without any luck for the dry leaves. I was able to find a tea maker Traditional Medicinals® who does have a tea blend containing passion flower. Organic Nighty Night®. This was the only one I found that contained a high percentage of passion flower in relation to other herbs or that listed it among the blend ingredients. Note: I found the product in my local market. It is also available online.

For the record; please research and use your best judgment when trying any new product. Remember we are all individuals with our own unique experiences.

I am still on the hunt for the loose herb. I have enlisted the aid of a local tea and spice shop. If we are successful in our search, I will be sure to let you all know.

Peace, Love and Blessings
