HARMONIZE WITH CHRYSANTHEMUM:
A strong decoction of chrysanthemum flowers applied directly to the eyes relieves inflammation and prevents cataracts. Applied to the skin, it relieves dermatitis. It may also be applied for maintaining skin health and beauty. The decoction, or a wine brewed from the flowers, may be consumed to relieve headache or restlessness.
Chrysanthemum × morifolium flowers (Metal, Water, Wood) combine well with Atractylodes macrocephala root (Earth, Metal), Broussonetia papyrifera root bark (Metal), Lycium chinense root bark (Metal, Water, Wood), or Ligusticum striatum rhizome (Wood).
A strong decoction of Lycium chinense fruit (Metal, Water) and chrysanthemum flowers may be applied directly to the eyes to relieve inflammation and consumed regularly for the preservation of eye health. A tea brewed from these two (pictured above), while not sufficiently potent to qualify as medicine, makes an enjoyable beverage.
ENERGIZE WITH COFFEE:
This morning we are pan-roasting an amazing dry-process coffee from Shakiso, Ethiopia.
Our Tok Wellness products are 100% caffeine free. This means no added caffeine and no caffeine containing plants. Still we acknowledge and enjoy the healthful effects of coffee and tea, especially in combination with Tok Energy or Tok Support.
Try Tok Energy or Tok Support with your favorite brewed coffee or tea to moderate and extend the caffeine effect.
COOL DOWN WITH WATERMELON RIND:
On hot summer days, we keep cool and hydrated with fresh juiced watermelon
rind. We enjoy it with a little lime juice and a pinch of salt!
