Where do you get your herbs from?
Our organic & wild crafted natural herbs are sourced from small traditional growers & raw material suppliers from around the world. Our herbs are non-irradiated and always validated with quality assurance testing that includes:
• Organoleptic testing to ensure proper appearance, color, aroma and flavor.
• Microscopic and Macroscopic inspection for foreign matter.
• HPTLC for identification, to verify purity and authenticity.
• ICP-MS heavy metal analysis.
• Microbiology testing for pathogens such as E. coli and salmonella.
• Chemical analyses for moisture content, volatile oil, ash and acid insoluble ash.
How should I store my herbs?
A cool, dry, dark place is the best way to store herbs. A well-sealed glass jar in your kitchen cabinet will work fine. Ensure that moisture doesn't reach to them.
Can I consume multiple tea blends at the same time?
Yes, all blends can be consumed at the same time. However, we recommend consuming them one by one each day in the beginning. Once you feel how your body resonates with them individually, then they may be consumed at the same time. You may consume them all at one time or interchange them throughout the day.
How do I brew the herbs?
1 TSP/TBSP of Herbs per cup of water. Boil & Steep for 20 mins. You may simmer for hours depending on how strong you will like your tonic. Do not microwave your water or use any other water than spring water, alkaline or filtered water. It diminishes the benefits and using anything other than waters above, such as distilled water, depletes the body of its minerals and causes calcification. Add agave, date sugar, or honey if desired. Herbs can be steeped/simmered more than once, so reuse your herbs to extract every mineral, vitamin and nutrient from it.
What is an ideal cleanse?
Boil 3 cups of water with 3 spoons of herbs (drink 3x daily.) For every cup of tea you pour out, replace it with a fresh cup of water so the liquid level always stays the same. Reuse these herbs for 3 days. Tea will start off dark then gradually become light. Once tea is light & transparent, toss herbs back to Mother Nature in your compost pile.
There are no hard and fast rules about how many times you can reuse your herbs and roots. At Baba’s Iris, we believe in reusing the herbs and roots until the water runs clear, extracting every single mineral nutrient and vitamin from the plants. The longer it sits, The stronger it hits.
