Fall Equinox: A Time to Rest
One of the things that makes summer so great is how much daylight we get. The days are longer than the nights and there’s more time for hikes, gardening, socializing with friends, and just being outside and active, in general. Lately, the nights have been getting colder, the leaves are turning color, and we’ve just rounded the corner of fall equinox: the time of year when the hours of darkness start to outnumber the hours of daylight. With the sun setting earlier, we naturally spend more time in our homes, and the full days of activity that summer often brings begin to diminish. Many of us could benefit from slowing down and catching up on rest, which means achieving good quality sleep consistently. Humboldt Apothecary is a big fan of great sleep and we’ve got you covered with several products to choose from.
Featured Herb : Bergamot
Bergamot, whose Latin name is Monarda fistulosa, is also commonly known as bee balm. This is a highly adaptive perennial that grows 2 to 5 feet tall and produces flowers in a variety of colors throughout summer that attract many pollinators including bees and hummingbirds. Being in the mint family, its leaves and flowers have a minty, earthy, spicy aroma and the leaves can be used for making tea. Its high content in limonene and linalool make it a great choice for people looking to recover from stress and feel more sedated.
