'The herbs in our JING blend are some of the most revered and primary herbs used by the Taoists through antiquity to maintain and restore healthy Jing. They are used to slow the ageing process and ensure ageing is done with grace. With a sustainable lifestyle and Jing herbs, they saw no reason that we would not reach reasonably old ages free from disease, while still going strong. They saw Jing herbs as medicinals to reinforce stamina, power and strength through the body (since the Jing governs the physical structure of sinew and bones), as well as the process of how we generate energy in the body; the more Jing, the more robust athletically you become.' - Mason Taylor.

Join Mason as we take a deep dive into the mysterious and vitally important energy that lives in our kidneys; Jing. ‘Jing’ is the Chinese word for ‘essence’ - specifically kidney essence. In the ancient Taoist tradition, fatigue, weakness and hormonal imbalance, were all considered a result of Jing depletion. By learning to nourish Jing we begin to stop any “leaking” of this energy, and therefore cease to be in states of exhaustion and restore this energy so that our body can grow deep roots of health to grow upon. When the Jing is strong and being used sustainably we experience healthy hormones, less stress, a rocking libido and strong bones, back, hips and knees. Mason covers the primary herbs and practices needed to ensure healthy levels of Jing in the body, this is our first step to ensuring a nice long, healthy life is experienced.

The Year of the Yin Metal Ox

by Tahnee McCrossin February 12, 2021

In Chinese folklore, the story of the Ox is that she was a star, removed from the heavens by the gods and goddesses to help humans. The gods and goddesses told Ox to help humans cultivate enough food to eat every three days - but Ox got muddled and told the humans she was here to help them eat three times a day - oops! For that reason, Ox has been helping humans by working all day long to ensure we produce enough food to eat regular meals.
