Persephone’s Herbal Learning Box is a subscription that sends subscribers a featured herb each month. Monthly boxes include tea, packets of seeds, and a magazine with Materia Medica which indicates the Latin name, common names, contraindications, and drug interactions of the featured herb. The magazine will also feature 2-4 articles, a recipe using the herb, as well as a growing guide telling you how to grow and care for your seeds so that you can start your own herb garden. Their goal is to help expose subscribers to new herbs and teas each month, and also to give a hands-on experience with different herbs.
Everything in my box!
Chamomile Tea (approx 1.6 oz). This bag of tea might smell better than any other Chamomile tea I have ever had, and the taste is subtle while also being calming. I love that you can tell every little petal and stem apart.
Shuteye Chamomile Tea (approx 1 oz). Wow, this tea is more like a potpourri than something to drink. The lavender and mint scents have me intrigued, I can’t wait to try this as a sleep aid.
Chamomile Seeds (2 packages of 400). I love trying my hand at gardening, with these step by step directions on each packet I should be able to grow and harvest some beautiful flowers.
Persephone’s Herbal Magazine. There is so much useful information packed into only 15 pages. I will be making sure to hold on to the magazine for reference.
Inside the magazine is a feature about the history & folklore of chamomile.
There are also useful tips and tricks in growing chamomile.
Persephone’s Herbal Learning Box is amazing! I learned so much from the included magazine as well as the products themselves. I had no idea that consuming too much Chamomile can lead to a ragweed allergy. I love the idea of learning more about the world around me with the help of boxes like Persephone’s.
I will also say that the quality of the herbs used is out of this world, it really changed my thoughts on Chamomile tea. The last time I had Chamomile tea it tasted like dirt, unlike this tea that was sweet with a slight bitterness and overall awesome experience. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and doing the research for me so that I may relax with a nice magazine and hot cup of tea.
