Sun Potion Guide to Tonic Herbs and Superfoods by Jewels of a Dreamer

It has been almost a year since I first met Scott and Nitsa of Sun Potion and was introduced to the magical world of tonic herbs and superfoods. As I have shared more about this incredible company, from a very special interview with Scott and Nitsa that can be read here, to a Sun Potion Instagram Takeover and many experiments + recipes dreamed up in the kitchen, one theme has remained. Everyone wants to learn more. So many of you have written, asking questions and ready to begin your journey. You want to understand what the tonic herbs and superfoods are, where they come and how you can incorporate them into your life.

I am over-the-moon excited to introduce today’s guide. In collaboration with Sun Potion we have put together a comprehensive look at all of the herbs Sun Potion shares, what they are, the benefits and how you can enjoy them in your life. Continue Reading

Night Time Tonic for Dahl House Nutrition

Maintaining morning and evening rituals is one of the greatest ways to stay grounded and supported despite whatever the day may bring. Life gets busy and hectic, it is nearly impossible to jump into a state of total relaxation once the evening approaches. Calming your mind and body is crucial to transition into nighttime with ease. This tonic (along with a great book, mantra playing and candles burning) helps me to release anything not serving me and arrive at a happy, serene place.

The ashwagandha is restorative while reducing anxiety, reishi supports the immune system and relieves stress and mucuna pruriens soothes the entire nervous system. Mixed with the gynostemma or chamomile tea, you will be amazed at the feeling of bliss that washes over you. This tonic is my absolute favorite way to unwind, calm my nervous system and prepare for sweet dreams. Continue Reading

Sun Potion Shea Butter

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Nitsa and Scott of Sun Potion and taking their Potions 101 class. It was one of those situations that was completely in-sync because I had been endlessly researching their company for months, figuring out what tonic herbs and superfoods I was going to incorporate into my diet.

After meeting them and feeling the transformational effects first hand, I have been in love (and completely obsessed to be honest) with everything they do. I am slowly acquiring all of their fantastic and life-changing products, which I have been using daily so expect more on this soon!

Towards the end of the evening Nitsa made a nourishing face mask for us all to try and used their shea butter as the base. I had been looking forward to purchasing the butter, knowing they are one of the few companies that use 100% unrefined and wildcrafted shea. Experiencing it first hand completely sealed the deal.

Sun Potion sources the shea butter from the nut of the Shea-Karite tree which grows in the tropical regions of Africa. The trees take at least 15 years to produce shea, which is then stored, dried and crushed. It is 100% chemical free and although meant for external use, safe to eat. It has been used for centuries as a protective, anti-aging, beauty remedy by African women.

I have been mixing it with a few drops of my favorite oil of the moment until it is melted, and rubbing it on my face and body every day. The results are exciting and noticeable. While it has been a great experiment as my skin was incredibly dry due to the harsh winter weather, I plan on using it all year long. Some of the benefits of shea butter include:

• Balances skin pH
• Naturally rich in vitamins A, E & F
• Allows skin to breathe
• Deeply moisturizing
• Reduces inflammation
• Aids in skins natural collagen production
• Strengthens and regenerates skin
• Mild natural sunscreen
• Assist in healing conditions such as: sun damage, blemishes, eczema, severe dryness, skin allergies & more

This will definitely be a staple product in my holistic beauty cabinet. I am incredibly grateful to have Sun Potion in my life and to be able to share all that I am learning and experiencing on Jewels of a Dreamer!
