Herbal Anti-Depressants

Tolstoy once wrote "All happy families resemble one another; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way" and this is also true on an individual level. For this reason there will never be a panacea for sufferers of depression. On the other hand, there are a wide variety of effective strategies, including herbal anti depressants, for coping with depression, providing both short and medium term relief. And there are also a large number of powerful therapies and personal development paths that can be effective in delivering long term change. The trick is to find what works in your situation.

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. September is the month of beginnings as the academic year roles into gear and everyone gets a bit more focused and over summer. (One barbecue too many?)
We really hope you will just love it, and find your way around with ease. We will be celebrating our launch with some great offers, including special discount codes and a competition, and of course you will be the first to know!

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?

Tea is awesome

''Arthur blinked at the screens and felt he was missing something important. Suddenly he realized what it was. "Is there any tea on this spaceship?" he asked.' Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...It seems as though drinking a cup of tea is so much a part of our planet's culture that our best SciFi writers can't imagine anyone doing without it even after the end of the world!

Gross National Happiness in Bhutan

What happiness is about has rightly become a subject of lots of thought and discussion around the planet, as we approach the end of an era marked by mindless consumerism and a human self centred attitude that is bringing the biosphere to the brink of collapse. We are living in a time where we must address the current crisis with consequent action, where 'walk our talk' has become fundamental. Taking good care of our inner ecosystems (our bodies) is the right start. With our bodies comes a mind that needs taming and cultivation. As human beings the very purpose of our lives is to be happy, yet that seems quite elusive and hard to find, especially a lasting happiness. Hence I have become involved in, as well as learning about ways to look after the temple of my mind, the body, in meditative practices like Mindfulness.

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.
