These Teas Uplift and Inspire

Mar 06, 2018 11:41AM

Rising Dawn Teas, a brand-new online business, was launched in January by Alyson and Helena Showell. They say, “We are reclaiming the herbal knowledge and wisdom regarding teas, salves, tinctures and poultices of our West African and U.S. slave ancestors and translating this historical knowledge into modern-day form and usage. We decided to focus specifically on the tea aspect of our rich heritage.”

They buy organic and fair trade ingredients, as well as wild-foraged ingredients from unpolluted locations, whenever possible, to make delicious, life-enhancing teas. “We ardently believe in and practice the Golden Rule philosophy: Treat and care for others, as we do ourselves,” advise the Showells.

Rising Dawn Teas began as a hobby and turned into a vision to help, heal and soothe. Alyson began making teas three years ago for herself and her family, borne of a desire to connect with nature and use what she found to help others. By studying plants, herbs and their healing properties, she realized that she wanted to think bigger and to use her creations to uplift.
