Our formulas are expertly grown and formulated by Nurse and Herbalist Linda Shanahan, MSN, RN. She draws from over 2 decades of work with plants and people to craft effective and sourced from our farm and those of other local organic farmers.
Our Defend Formula is a carefully crafted wellness blend of 9 different herbs, each with their own role to help bring our respiratory systems into balance and dry out damp, hot conditions. Baikal Skullcap supports our body’s natural defenses and Ground Ivy encourages our respiratory system to drain excess mucus. Mullein Leaf softens and decongest the lungs as Elecampane warms and loosens. Isatis and Dan Shen are cooling herbs that help to soothe the circulatory system. Elderflower is dispersing, helping to “ventilate” static lungs. Ginger and Licorice balance this complex formula by warming and moistening. *
Defend was originally formulated by Linda in the height of the pandemic as a tool for her clients that were not easily recovering. *
