The Herb Bar
It’s all about Pleasure
I don’t want to call you out but have you stopped to smell the roses lately? Literally? Figuratively? It’s time. Maybe even pick a few for your dining table while you’re at it. There are plenty to go around. Spring is prolific. A jaw dropping reminder of how abundant & luxurious this world is.
Let’s revel in it.
Ta**us wants you to. While it is a sign that might be better known for its stubbornness it is also comfortingly grounded, very loyal, highly sensual & knows a thing or two about pleasure. About warmth, comfort, security & home.
If Ta**us has a mantra it’s something along the lines of
“I am worthy of abundance in all forms”
Let's say it together...
“I am worthy of abundance in all forms!"
That felt good.
Now, Speaking of abundance...

Noon - 6pm.
As always - much love from all of us here at the Herb Bar
The full moon in Libra rises this coming Saturday & we will be having a little celebration at the shop with lots of things on sale, a raffle, tarot readings in the yard & refreshements by Blenders & Bowls + Rebel Cheese! It’s happening all day long Noon - 6pm & we hope to see you there! But what exactly are we celebrating with this lunation?
With the Sun in Aries & the Moon in Libra on the heels of the great Jupiter-Neptune conjunction that took place yesterday & oh yeah - eclipse season is looming at the end of the month.. I’d say we are celebrating the fact that everything is changing! Things sure are shifting around the shop & most definitely in the world at large. We are living in a powerful time of growth & expansion, so… Who’s ready to have a say in how this shift is going to go down?
Change gets a bad wrap for being scary but maybe that is an outdated idea that can be released with this moon. While we are at it maybe we can let go of the word “opposing” when we are talking about full moon cycles? It sounds so confrontational - which clashing does happen but right now it feels that Aries & Libra are facing each other. Allowing themselves to be seen. Coming together. Being the example. Aries is a cardinal Fire sign ruled by Mars (speaking to our identity) & Libra, a cardinal Air sign ruled by Venus (the planet of relationships) - I think that this moment wants us to recognize that without air - there is no fire. A wildly important element whose discovery changed the power dynamics for human beings on this planet. It’s clear - we have to come together. Our current power dynamics are up for review. Together we can heal, realize our potential, know our power & create the harmony we crave.
THAT is change we can be excited about!
It all starts with ourselves though. Let’s allow this moon to shine a light on our personal power & get clear on anything that has kept us from fully expressing it in big, beautiful, caring & creative ways. Let’s ask our selves - in what ways do I honor this inner flame? Have I allowed myself to fully see it’s value in this world? Let’s take a closer look at how we show up in relationships too & anything that may be keeping us from each other & the beauty our connection brings to everything.
Looking for something to add to your moon ritual?
We are so grateful for all of you & so very excited for
what’s ahead. We hope to see you under the full moon
on Saturday! Until then…

It will be a dark night so let’s light a candle (or ten) & get down to business, shall we?
The first new moon of the astrological new year is a pretty big deal & that is the message here. It wants you to know that you too are a pretty big deal… & it is high time you start acting like it.
This lunation is rising in the sign of Aries, the warrior. Confident, driven, brave, competitive, rebellious & at times… a bit selfish. This is exactly the energy we need right now. Evolutionary tides are rolling in. A shift in consciousness is building. It’s time to create new social structures. To change the game. In order to have a hand in it we are all going to have to realize our strength & get out of our own way.
The Sun, this new Moon & Mercury are all conjunct to Chiron at this time. Providing us greater clarity on what we need to heal from our past in order to not just simply move forward but to grow - forward. This healing work, these big beautiful dreams, ourselves… they are top priority right now. It is time for discipline & focus.
It is easy, maybe even natural for me to become distracted by the needs & wants of others. To see selfishness as a negative trait.. so today the question I pose to myself & the community here is -
Are you brave enough to choose yourself?
The warrior is.
Take some time this evening, by candle light to honor the fiery sign of Aries & revisit your vision boards, passion projects & bucket lists. The time to tackle them has come. Get clear & be honest about the ways you have self sabotaged in the past. Do you run when it’s just getting good? Know your patterns. Acknowledge the disappointment & forgive yourself. This is bravery.
This is the path forward.
The energy of the new moon can last for a few days. Emotions may run high but keep in mind, you are not alone. This is a collective experience. Swing by the shop or visit us online for supplies to support you as you come to see how big of a deal you really are.
For that inner fire…
As always - much love & gratitude from all of us here at the Herb Bar.

Are you having an easier time Snoozing in the morning than you are at night?
Many of us are struggling to switch up our circadian rhythm now that school is back in session. It does not help that the sun is still hanging out late while we need to be turning in early so we can get the kiddos or ourselves off to school in the morning. Rather than turning to another cup of coffee, let's see if we can help you
Getting natural light early in the morning & staying off of our phones in the evening can help reset your rhythm, but if you need some extra support, there are herbs for that!
Here are some of our favorite sleep aids on the market. They are natural, they are not addictive & some of them are quite dreamy..

Home, Emotions, & Inner Strength
On Monday, July 17th, the Moon is coming home.
This powerful New Moon in Cancer will brings with it a sense of rebirth. Coinciding with the shifting of the Lunar Nodes, this alignment indicates a time of significant change & growth in our lives. Under the influence of the Cancer New Moon, we are likely to encounter opportunities that align us with our sense of purpose. It is crucial to pay attention to our emotions during this time. Cancer has an impressive emotional capacity. That is to say, this new moon could feel a little overwhelming for some of us, but don’t fear! This water energy will not wash you away. In fact if you find yourself in a turbulent tide, be patient. You may find that it calms into the stream that carries you exactly where you have always longed to be.
This New Moon invites us to set our intentions around what makes us feel secure & emotionally fulfilled. During this phase, it is essential to embrace & explore our deepest emotions, even those that could be associated with painful childhood memories or issues surrounding our relationship with our mother. This introspection can help us find balance, heal wounds, & establish a sense of comfort
& security within ourselves. Home.
The beauty of Cancerian energy is that of the Divine Mother. Caring & nurturing. It has the power to provide us with the comfort & stability we seek, while allowing us to venture into the world around us with confidence & a true sense
Time to embrace the Divine Mother within.
We are being reminded that when we fully embrace these seemingly softer energies we find that they quickly transform into bravery, confidence, & inner strength
In addition to the Cancer New Moon, the skies reveal more celestial magic that will certainly influence this lunar phase. Pluto, the planet of death & rebirth, is retrograde & encouraging us to reflect on events & emotional themes that have been unfolding since October of last year. This retrospection provides us an opportunity to release, heal, & gain greater awareness of our emotional journey.
Venus, the Goddess of love, beauty, & money, is approaching its retrograde phase (officially on July 22) & we may already be feeling it during the New Moon. This Venus retrograde in Leo, could have us noticing that our decisions & attitudes regarding love & money have become more ego-centric than we would like to admit. Take what comes up for you during this New Moon around security & emotional fulfillment & use it as a guide post during this retrograde.
With the convergence of these energetic dynamics, the Cancer New Moon may be.. memorable, to say the least. But it’ll be ok. Be mindful of the emotions you hold onto & the company you keep during this time. Practice self-care, embrace the waves, & nourish yourself in ways that only you know how to.
Happy New Moon! Let’s the transformation begin!

Here in the heart of Texas
we are doing what
we do best..
Being hot hot hot.
We mean that quite literally. First of all, we are a great looking bunch & then of course we are looking at a forecast that soars over 100 degrees, day after day.
For those of you who are new to Central Texas, Welcome! This is our sweatiest season. It can be very challenging but we are about to spill some refreshing tea & throw some much needed shade that can help you get through the triple digit temps with grace.
Before we get into that, let’s talk mindset. It is the key to all things & we can transform it with the words we choose. So, let's try something together. Instead of talking about the extremes of Summer in a way that describes an oven (or the apocalypse) let’s try to lighten up our vocabulary in the direction of something we would like to experience. Maybe “Sweltering” becomes “Tropical”? Perhaps “Humid’ is better off as “Sultry?” What if we turned “Blistering” into “Spicy?”
It’s worth a shot, right?
Seriously, the first person who walks into the shop & says “It is spicy out there!” get’s a full bag of tea on the house. Sippers choice.
Speaking of tea… let the sun in!
That’s right, it is Sun Tea Time. Might as well make this heat work for you, right?
All you need is a glass container with a lid, your tea of choice & a sunny spot.
Simply fill your container with tea and water, then put it out in the sun. You can use 8 tsp of tea per gallon OR if your container is small, like a mason jar, you can make a tea concentrate. As you serve it you would dilute it with more water. Important Note* Leaving your tea out in the sun for more than 3-4 hours is likely to result in bitter tea, so don’t let it linger too long, unless you dig bitter then, you do you!
Here are our favorite teas to brew
in the sun!
If the heat is a call that is coming from inside the house.. we have something for that!

A Higher Unification of All Energies
With the Moon in fiery Sagittarius reflecting the light of the Sun as it shines on in airy Gemini, we are called to seek higher truths as we examine & embrace our duality.
We all have many sides, speeds, facets, charms & faults. You name it, we are many lovely & challenging things. This comes to the surface with Gemini energy, as it is represented by the Twins in the zodiac & The Lovers in the Tarot. If we look to Sagittarius in the Tarot we find it is represented by the Temperance card, whose guidance for us is to bring opposing forces to balance or unify all the energies.
Our egos like to cultivate persona’s that highlight our better bits & hide away the seemingly less desirable parts. But maybe this Full Moon is here to say we can be done with that. Perhaps the real adventure begins when we can own & appreciate every facet of ourselves.
We may also find that we are challenged during this time to find the balance between overthinking & being far too impulsive. The scene is set for it as Gemini can get stuck in it’s head & Sagittarius is well known for it’s spontaneity.
We could also experience some big perspective shifts that can broaden our minds & our circumstances forever. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion, which is currently in Ta**us, so have a look at your chart to get an idea of what part of your life Jupiter is blessing right now. Sometimes these shifts feel a little (or a lot) scary. Gemini & Sag are both mutable energies though. They help us navigate change. Gemini is famously curious & Sag is the fire that gets us moving & owns the 9th house of adventure. This is the kind of energy that can transform fear into excitement & gratitude in the blink of an eye.
This opportune moment encourages us to re-engage with hidden aspects of ourselves and explore the untapped potential they hold. By doing so, we can discover how these facets might assist us in taking the next step on our journey. And who knows who we might encounter along the way who will wholeheartedly embrace and appreciate these aspects of our being.
Will you be joining us for the Full Moon Sound Bath (https://www.theherbbar.com/product/full-moon-sound-bath-w-sacred-sisters-atx/4315?cp=true&sa=false&sbp=false&q=false&category_id=72) at the Bar tomorrow? If you haven’t claimed your seat there is still time. We have 2 spots left.

Prime manifestation energy.. presented in a way we may not have seen before
With this Ta**us New Moon we are reminded to find some stillness so we can plot, plan, seed & sew with clarity. This is not a time of doing. This is a time of grounding into the present moment. Returning to ourselves. It’s an invitation to delve into what we find pleasurable & what helps us feel secure. It is a chance to align our material aspirations with our emotional well-being.
This is prime manifestation energy.. presented in a way we may not have seen before.
Epicurus once said “Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” That feels like an important message right now.
Ta**us is an incredibly sensual sign. It’s earth, it’s tactile, haptic, steadfast & generous. So let those ingredients play a meaningful role in what you are manifesting.. and then be patient. That is another beneficial Taurean quality that many of us have yet to learn.. It’s me. Hi. I’m the problem. It’s me.
That being said, for anyone else in the impatient boat, who wants to call in something BIG, here’s some Taurean advice.. Extremes are unlikely to get you where you want to go. Consistency, on the other hand, will get you everywhere. If we want to get practical about pursuing a dream, spending 17 minutes a day putting effort toward your goal becomes 100 hours in a years time. That’s right, smaller consistent efforts = surprisingly big rewards. Thanks for the reminder, Ta**us!
We hope you are all having a very relaxing New Moon. It’s such a joy with everything in bloom right now. So, get outside - enjoy this abundant energy.
Come by the shop to pick up your ritual supplies!
We are here! Noon - 6pm.
Here’s what we are being called to work with during this full moon. Click the image below to shop the collection.
Other things to know

You are incredible.
Thank you so much for being on this journey will us. This community is so freakin’ magical.
All the gratitude,

A fan favorite + some more essences we know you will love
If you have never worked with flower or gem essences before, allow spring to be your invitation to try them. These gentle allies work with the subtle emotional body and help to resolve mental, emotional, and spiritual patterns of imbalance that can hinder us. Each flower & gem have their own energy that can support us through challenging times as we find balance, transformation, forgiveness & ultimately bloom in our right.
These essences are often taken orally, either straight from the dropper, mixed into water, with tinctures or added to food.. I personally like to add them to my salad dressings.
You can also use them topically in a bath, as a body or aura spray, dropped directly on to chakra points, or misted on a pillow at night. Get creative with it.
So, which flower essence is right for you?
Sometimes we go looking for a flower essence with a particular outcome in mind & sometimes they call to us. Let the process be what it will be.
Here are some of our favorites..
Restocked! The Shield of Light (https://www.theherbbar.com/product/shieldoflightspray/4074?cp=true&sa=false&sbp=false&q=true) has been a long time favorite of Herb Bar patrons & staff. This valuable formula is very beneficial for healers, highly sensitive people & anyone who works in a high traffic areas with lots of different energies. Service industry folks, we’re looking at you. Just simply spray your energy field & above your head when you feel your energetic boundaries need some bolstering. Another way to use it would be around the perimeters of your home, yard & office (inside and out). Available in the shop & online.
We hope this inspires you to try one of our favorite (and most lovely) tools in chest. There are many more essences online (https://www.theherbbar.com/shop/flower-ritual-gem-essences/58) . We even have something to soothe our
furry companions (https://www.theherbbar.com/product/happypetessence/4079?cp=true&sa=false&sbp=false&q=false&category_id=58) .
See what calls to you.

with the Full Moon in Libra
There’s an old African proverb that popped up in a meditation around this weeks Full Moon in Libra. It quieted the many other messages that were coming through & brought some calm back to the often hectic space between my ears. Simply put - “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
With the Sun currently in Aries life might feel like the “Me” show. After all, the energy is ripe for pursuing our purpose, finding our way, & betting on ourselves. That’s the fiery, head first, Mars energy that makes Aries so vibrant & memorable. It’s also what leads this sign to come off as impatient, intense & most likely to say “You’re in my way.” The Full Moon in Libra isn’t going to stand for that. It is here to say - this is actually the "We" show. You are not alone. We will likely receive this message in two ways. The first could sound a bit more like “Hey, the Moon does not revolve around you. Other people do in fact exist. So, act like it - or else.” The second will arrive a bit softer, as the thing we all want to be reassured of… that we are in this together.
This togetherness is what will be illuminated by the Full Moon on the 5th. For better or worse. If relationships have been feeling more challenging than rewarding lately, you might be asking yourself if you need good boundaries or goodbyes. All full moons call for something to be released & Aries would like have us impulsively waving as people shrink in the rearview mirror but in this moment maybe we take a pause (as libra would want us to) & ask ourselves if it's a relationship we need to release or if it's the way we operate inside of it?
This full moon reminds us that boundaries are where we meet each other & balance is what we find together. The goal being interdependence. When we recognize this, boundaries become the thing that bond us together. They help us walk side by side, supporting each other on our individual journeys without drifting into someone else's lane, lagging behind or tripping on eachothers untied shoelaces.
If you want to see how far better boundaries will take you, here are a few simple steps to help you set them.
1. Communicate your boundary clearly. Do not raise your voice.
2. State your need or request directly in terms of what you would like to happen rather than what you would not like to happen.
3. Accept any discomfort that will arise as a result, whether it is guilt, shame or remorse. It will pass & you will be proud that you stood up for yourself & asked for your need to be met.
Here are a few more ways to work with the Full Moon in Libra
Happy Full Moon Y'all - We believe in you!
Keep your eyes peeled. Details for the Party & Market on April 29th are

This season is so rich with possibilities. It is exactly the kind of luxury we want to lean in to. So, we thought we would share the wealth. Here are our top picks for this budding new season..
Plants for Presence
Come to Class
On Monday, March 27th we turn to our eldest keepers of presence—the plants. We will sit with three local medicinal plants that can support our personal relationship with presence. We will explore plant-led strategies to cultivate portals of connection with our more-than-human kin and re/member our capacity for wholeness, pleasure, and joy.
Kate Proietti will be leading our class tonight. She is a prized member of our staff & you know from behind the herb counter. Kate is a wonderful Herbal educator, Practitioner, Consultant, & talented maker of many herbal products.

Each full Moon is a symbol of wholeness & the integration of feminine & masculine energies. The feminine aspects of emotion, intuition & creation are represented by the moon while the sun embodies the masculine principles of action, consciousness & logic. As they dance face to face during the Full Moon, it is a moment of alignment where we are given extra support as the universe illuminates the hidden details of the moon & our psyches. Energies often run high as our unconscious fears, desires & emotions surface in the moon light.
The Moon is full tomorrow in the healing earth sign of Virgo, which is well known for being a sign of service. As it is illuminated by the sun, the planet of action, in dreamy, intuitive & ultra creative Pisces, the question seems to be “What if the greatest act of service I could ever provide is the realization of my very own wildest dreams?”
It’s a question that is so direct it’s nearly rude but..
Seeing as you are a member of The Herb Bar community & subscriber to this newsletter, you know the answer to this question. At a soul level you know that living in your fullest expression is key to healing for you & everyone you come into contact with. The best part of every Full Moon is the opportunity we are given to practice the art of letting go. This month we release our fears around living in the shimmering glory of very own wildest dreams.
This fear likes to express itself as thoughts or beliefs that we are not good enough.. yet. Release it!
It likes to speak up and suggest that we are “not ready”.. yet. Release it!
Take a moment in the moonlight and allow the feeling of “Good enough. Right now.” to light you up.
Part of healing will be accepting the reality that you have been good enough all along.
Happy Full Moon Y’all.
Consider this the detox we all need before the
Astrological New Year rolls in.
If you feel uncertain about what your greatest act of service will look like, join us tomorrow night, during the Full Moon for
Activating Focus, Meaning & Direction (https://www.theherbbar.com/product/activating-focus-meaning-direction/4012?cs=true&cst=custom) with
Ashley Priscilla Beasley. It’s going to be a powerful night.
P.S. Don’t forget - Our hours have changed!
As of this Full Moon we are now open

Full Moon in Virgo Click here for an update from The Herb Bar!
"Love yourself first & everything else falls into line."
- Lucille Ball
If ever there was a Leo poster child I do believe it was Lucille Ball.
She was confident, glamorous, brave & most definitely fiery. Her life was a full expression of her spirit & it makes things like the quote above feel a lot
like gospel. She had a big, bold heart & it had an incredible influence on everyone around her.
That feels like the message shining through with tomorrows full moon.
Leo represents the heart, our little engines, our drums. Each one radiates an electromagnetic frequency that is unique to us. This frequency reaches far beyond our physical being & has as much of an influence on the world around us as it does within us.
Over the coming days, let's check in with ourselves & become aware of our frequency. We want to acknowledge & take pride in the influence we have in this world so we must stay conscious to what we are putting out there. With the moon in Leo, some ego is likely to come to the surface. It might show up in the form of self limiting beliefs or thoughts that lead you to feel alone & disconnected from others. This is a shadowy side of Leo & it's what we aim to release at this time so higher self can be in the lead. Keep in mind, our ego is just trying to keep us alive. It's not aware that the bar has been
raised to THRIVE.
Some of our favorite things in the shop to help you connect with your higher self...
Thank you for being a part of this community
We are grateful to be on this journey together!
