Isn’t She Lovely….?

Well, we have a new arrival in our Fire Brew family and her name is Clove. Pretty – huh?

We’re very excited about this new blend. Not just for its earthly flavor, full of base notes, that unfolds like a symphony in your mouth but for all the health benefits the herbs impart. Let’s talk about what some of those things are:

Cloves: This warm, aromatic spice helps reduce inflammation due to its main component, Eugenol. It’s also high in some crucial vitamins and minerals such as manganese, Vitamin K, iron, magnesium and calcium.

Burdock: Rich in vitamins and minerals (iron, magnesium, thiamine, etc), burdock is excellent for skin related imbalances (i.e. eczema, psoriasis, acne). It’s a very cooling herb and promotes healthy kidney function, and is excellent blood purifier. The herb is also helpful for gout and rheumatism.

Dandelion: Dandelion is another powerhouse herb. It is a stimulant to the liver (encouraging the flow of bile) and is considered a very safe diuretic. It is also packed with vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A and C.

Sarsaparilla: Proven to have beneficial properties that improve skin conditions, joint pain, fatigue and hormone balances in both men and women. The herb also has numerous anti inflammatory and anti bacterial qualities.

Anise: Works as a digestive aid and expels gas. Wonderful for colic.

Fennel: Great for nursing mothers to increase milk flow, works as an antacid (neutralizing the stomach and intestines), stimulates digestion and relieves gas.

Wow – can it be August already??

Say it isn’t so? I’ve been meaning to hop on here to write an update about our health tonics but we’re so busy with our heads in the Brew it’s been hard to come up for air! We hope you guys have been getting out there and enjoying summer and doing all the things the season brings – from jumping in lakes, to flying kites, to sitting by a campfire or two!

Besides making Fire Brew, we’ve spent most of our time at food “crop ups” and Farmers Markets so we can’t really complain. We’ve also been lucky enough for a number of new establishments to take a chance on us and our curiously strong (wait a minute, I think that’s been used before but it’s true!) health tonics.

We have a couple of new blends coming out soon so watch for them. Post some pictures you have with the Brew and let us know; we’ll pop you a free 2 oz bottle in the mail! In the meantime here are a few updates pictures! Thank you to everyone!!
