We all benefit from honoring the seasons’ natural influences upon our animal selves, which include our diets, activity levels, and sleep patterns, as well as our emotions. A “spring detox” usually refers to supporting the body’s seasonal transition from winter’s slower, inwardly focused energy to the vibrant, upward growth of spring — but what of the emotional self? 

This spring, allow your emotional self to grow with the season, without the weight of fear, sadness, anxiety, grief, trauma, criticism, and self-recrimination bogging you down. These types of adverse feelings contribute important aspects to our emotional lives, but it’s also easy to get stuck in revisiting these feelings long after they’ve taught us their lessons. One of the most important things we can do for our emotional health is to work through our self-sabotaging feelings.

Herbs and Elixirs to Clear the Heart

Clearing the heart specifically creates space for new emotional growth during the lengthening days of spring. Certain herbs can help support us through lingering pain, hardship, and other emotions that no longer serve us as we process those feelings and leave them behind as facets of the past.

Herbal elixirs blend raw, infused honey with tinctures. Honey itself is the perfect vehicle for delivering medicine to our emotional hearts; as an anabolic nutritive, it helps us build physical and emotional strength. The sweetness of raw honey decreases anxiety by telling our brains that all is well. The presence of probiotic and prebiotic compounds in honey also lessens anxiety because of the gut’s important role in mitigating the anxiety response.
