One must be delicate with manners of the heart, yet our heartbeat is one of our greatest reminders of our strength. It is the lifeblood that moves us forward and connects us to our compassion and dreams. Sometimes we feel open to all that lies before us, and other times we may be confronting grief of feeling a heavy weight of the world. Whatever the case may be, botanicals can support us through times of challenge and strife, or when you simply want to reconnect within.
This Heart Opening Elixir was created via the alliance of Widow Apothecary and Herbs for the Apocalypse, a women-crafted, botanically-infused indie graphic novel. It is an ode to our botanical pillars in a era of challenges. This recipe was inspired by the graphic novel which features herbal recipes throughout, and this one in particular yearned to be brought into being in order to serve those who feel the call.
This organic brandy-based cordial features local rose-infused honey, hawthorne, damiana, motherwort, California Poppy, tulsi, and calendula. Whatever state you may find yourself, this tincture holds the vision of transmutation for the greatest good.
