Ayurvedic warming herbs & spices

Although the roots of Little Wildling Co are centred around the practice and principles of Western herbal Medicine, there has always been a sprinkle of TCM and also Ayurveda amongst the expansive catalogue of herbs used in a modern clinical setting, and that also goes for LWC Tea and latte blends.

Ayurvedic medicine just like in western herbal medicine is not centred around symptom management or pharmaceutical treatments. Ayurveda is built upon three distinct foundational pillars that form the basis of every treatment, lifestyle modification, and herbal curation – The 5 elements, The 6 stages of disease, and Nature as Healer.

In Ayurveda you hear of cooling herbs and warming herbs, and in the spirit of the colder temperatures setting in here are some of the warming herbs we use in our blends to get you feeling cosy:

  1. Ashwagandha

You may have herd of this one unless you live under a rock or as we often refer to it as Withania somnifera. It is our most beloved adaptogen herbs helping us get through stressful times and is a powerful home remedy to keep the body warm. Best for Vata folks.

  1. Turmeric

Not only does this beautiful spice warm up the body but it is used to boost the immune system, clear congestion, and of course reduce inflammation. Brings balance to all three doshas – Vata, Pitta, Kapha.

  1. Ginger

Ginger has powerful heating properties. In India, ginger tea is a popular beverage enjoyed during the rainy season. It boosts blood circulation and improves digestion as well as being anti-inflammatory.

  1. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is among the most delicious warming foods. This aromatic spice is great for Kapha, since it warms the body along with removing excess moistness. It also works well for Vata. Moreover, it’s an immunity booster.  Sprinkle cinnamon onto your oats in the morning, add to Dahl and pretty much anything else you want to.
