Indigo Herbs is getting a new website. Our current website was designed over 7 years ago and is now somewhat of a relic when it comes to web platforms! We are hugely excited about our new website and really looking forward to launch at the beginning of September.

Super Mums gain super powers the natural way.

As a Mother, I am committing to a natural healthy lifestyle, and I am an advocate for the prevention of disease through complementary and alternative health practises. I have learnt so much about natural health and nutrition through the process of co-creating life, giving birth to life, and then nurturing life. I give thanks for the wellspring of resources to be found by looking after our health and wellbeing naturally. So how can nature's botanicals help us as Mums?

Slow Dried Fruit Powders... a new way to eat fruit

We all know that we need to get our five a day of fruit in us, but even with better ways emerging like blending them into fruit smoothies, we still find that the majority of us don’t get the amount we need. If you’re like me, you might even find your daily fruit intake a little bit boring, perhaps a bit of a challenge… so how easy would it be if you could just mix a bunch of fruit powders and still get all the fruity nutrition you need?

This is why Indigo Herbs are now supplying slow dried fruit powders. A lot of people don’t like shopping daily, and fresh fruit can cost a lot of money –  so why not buy them in the form of a dried powder?

Benefits of Baobab Powder

Ever heard of Baobab Powder? Neither had we – this somewhat hilariously shaped Baobab tree produces some of Africa’s most nutritious and tasty fruits. A new phenomenon to us Superfood loving westerners; yet these trees are reportedly living up to 500 years old and have been a staple part of many Africans diets for millennia. Like the Ginkgo tree, the Baobab tree is named as one of the oldest trees on earth. The Baobab tree, in its towering glory, produces pods which resemble coconuts with a hard exterior – inside are the pale and chalk-like fruit chunks. The Baobab fruits are dried at a low temperature and then milled into a fine, pale powder, like our Baobab Powder at Indigo Herbs.
