Temptress Apothecary was born out of the desire to create natural and potent herbal healthcare blends that are symbiotic with nature and that can be used in everyday ritual, reverence and pleasure in the home. Our artisan formulas, utilise ancient healing herbs and botanicals that can be applied and have been studied.
Our brews and blends draw on the insights of the ancient schools of Ayurveda, Chinese Traditional Medicine, Western Herbalism and from immersing ourselves in traditional cultural remedies.
Our mission is to preserve the botanical alchemy used in ritual and ceremony for wellness, longevity and communion. In doing so we draw from herbal history, and bring a wide range of blends to our community. Within our formulas you will find wisdom that has been revered and preserved by medicine people across the globe.
Our Temptress Apothecary Brews (Woke and Velvet Underground) are our morning go to, and to be frank, I’m cranky if I don’t get it. This is for a couple of reasons: firstly, this brew (or variations thereof) has become a ritual akin to a sacrament for my partner (aka: bestie and lover) and I before the kids arise from their slumber. We share a beautiful connection with each other while drinking this wonderfully energising and nurturing brew, with its rich and earthy flavour, spiked with warming notes of Maca, Ginseng or beetroot and Gota Kola. Secondly, I make this brew ‘bulletproof’ (see directions on packets) and get fortified with good fats such that I can get through my morning mothering roles with clarity and ease and can grab some breakfast once the kids are off to school. I’ve never been one for breakfast, my stomach doesn’t really wake up until mid-morning, but I find this brew suffices until then. It tells my body that I am nourished, cared for and have the endurance to get the day underway. In this, we pay homage to adaptogenic, nootropic, nervine and energy boosting plants that have both culinary and medicinal benefits.
