Herbal Infusions: A Key to Sustainable Living

All of us are aware that conservation is a buzzword in today’s social climate. We read about the need to conserve the planet, its animal species and plant cover, its precious natural resources, as well as communal languages and cultures. In all of this, where does the preservation of oneself fit? Can it better motivate one to make a change around themselves?

Why should you be conscious about change?

While the onset of the modern era brought forth its own scientific rationality, it has been dominated by an industrial method of progress and development. Amongst its many other effects, it has tried to discredit traditional and communal forms of specialized knowledge, replacing them instead with the demands of a highly-segregated market logic.

This can be seen in the fast-paced, hectic lifestyle that we sometimes find ourselves encumbered by. Quick fixes have become the new trend of living, but its dependencies and shortcomings gradually find a way to weigh us down. Feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, and general lethargy are not new to us. While we recognise them to be effects of unhealthy lifestyles, we are often pressed for time or choices to change them.

One such example is that of caffeine consumption. Our body takes in copious amounts of caffeine in tea and coffee that most of us have habitually consume, almost as a way to bring a new day to life. But it’s sad that these drinks cause our body a lot of serious, irreversible internal harm.

Our sustainable philosophy

We, at The Swinging Leaf, believe that this is where the need for sustainable living steps in. What are we to give back to the environment if the reserve of our own strength and willpower is depleted? Even if we make efforts to individually achieve our dreams and goals, they may not sustain themselves for long. One can achieve the most when body, mind and heart work in tandem.

It is our endeavour to help you take a step in that direction, and that’s why we are proud to present to you our herbal infusions. These artisanal products inspire a healthy, sustainable lifestyle in you. It is a positive step that will eventually result in a long, leisurely and fruitful walk of life!

They are grown the traditional way with the expertise of farmers who have been farming over generations. The herbs are dried slowly, free from artificial heat, and then crushed by a mortar-pestle. This unhurried process ensures the purest quality of all the ingredients. The infusion mix is packed in hand-woven, fine muslin bags, and delivered to your doorstep in recycled cardboard boxes.

Our choice to opt for an artisanal method ensures livelihood to farmers and weavers. It is a conscious decision to help prevent these traditional occupations from becoming unprofitable and unsustainable. We produce no chemical or industrial waste in the cultivation and production process, respecting the sanctity of Mother Nature. What’s more? Apart from doing good to the environment, these infusions save you from all the years, youth and vitality you may lose due to a caffeine habit. Take the first calming sip, and you will literally be able to set your mind at easeabout making your life a sustainable one, in sync with the heartbeat of this planet.
