‘That Which Binds Us’ brings together powerful, studied herbs known for their keen abilities to help strengthen hair, bones, nails, joints & connective tissue 🌀
They are anti-inflammatory herbs & roots high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals & silica. These properties are known to help improve bone density, stimulate the hair follicles, ease joint pain, improve circulation & so much more.
We demand SO much of our bodies on a daily basis. I wanted to craft an offering that will help bring daily strength & nourishment to that which gives us the incredible ability to move through life. One that feeds the bones, hair & nails that are extensions of our beings, of our ancestors.
The ‘That Which Binds Us’ line was inspired by my own experience. After I had the ick, I suffered a significant hair loss. The experience of losing clumps of hair was so traumatic for me, as I’ve always had thick, hip length hair. The herbs in this formula are tried & true herbs I have used for my own hair, nails & bones for many years. They’ve also significantly helped me recover after the ick. I am grateful my experience allowed me to conjure up these deeply supportive allies (That Which Binds Us Elixir, this tea, Nourish Your Roots & Roots of Sif and Odin) for those who need extra strength & resilience in their lives.

🌀 Ginkgo Biloba - Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species on the planet, more than 225 million years old! This wise ally is deeply supportive to our overall cognitive health and can help maintain healthy circulation.

🌀 Stinging Nettle Root - Stinging Nettle Root is known as one of the top hair and bone allies. Nettle is known to specifically help block DHT - a hormone that if overproduced can be detrimental to hair follicles. Studies reveal that nettle extract may help block the production of DHT by reducing the production of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme. Nettle is packed with a plethora of vitamins and minerals, giving this ally the unique ability to help combat hair loss while also aiding in hair re-growth. The flavonoids and phenols in Nettles work as a powerful antioxidant, helping rid free radicals and help heal damaged hair strands, roots and follicle. Nettle leaves are also rich in silica, iron and sulfur. All of which play an important role in making collagen and glucosamine, which are vital for healthy hair, bones, nails and joints.
🌀 Horsetail ~ Horsetail is an incredible prehistoric plant - referred to as a “living fossil” dating back over 400 million years ago. Being such an ancient plant used in virtually every culture, Horsetail has the ability to really pull up all the minerals and healing energy of the earth, making this ally extremely nourishing and nutritive-dense. As a Saturn-ruling plant, Horsetail pulls up the fire power of the earth, energetically bringing you ancient prehistoric healing, wisdom and transformation of ancestors and Earth.

🌀 Saw Palmetto - Saw palmetto is a very potent ally often used to balance hormone levels and combat hair loss. According to one study, saw palmetto may help block the activity of 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into another sex hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that is linked to hair loss. Saw palmetto may also prevent hair loss by reducing the uptake of DHT in your hair follicles, which decreases DHT’s ability to bind to specific hormone receptors. Studies have also shown that Saw Palmetto may help increase hair density in 83% of people with hair loss. It can also help repair hair texture and shine.

I have terribly brittle nails and hair and am so pleased to see that, after using this tincture as well as the loose leaf tea, growth and strength is already happening. This will be one I stock up on for sure.
I noticed a difference about 1/3 of the way through. My nails are constantly splitting/horribly brittle and while I’m gonna need another bottle or 2 to get them back up to par, this was a fantastic start! I have long, thick, curly hair so it’s hard to tell any difference with that but considering the improvement in my nails, I’m sure my hair is happy as well. Thank you!
