Sweet, Spicy, and Stimulating!
As the days get shorter and evenings chillier...as foliage turns a fiery spectrum of yellows and reds, and crunch beneath our feet...
It is the time for winter warming!
KMH holds deep respect for the interplay and healthy balance of both light and dark. While our lighter products serve to clarify and uplift, our rich winter line provides your body the warmth and nourishment it needs.
Every moment of light and dark is a miracle. ~ Walt Whitman
It is this time of year, that light begins to permeate the darkness. Whether it is Punxsutawney Phil glancing over his shoulder for a peak at his shadow, the lengthening days, or emerging greenery, nature is stirring, brimming with new life just beneath the surface.
KMH holds deep respect for the interplay and healthy balance of both light and dark. While our rich winter line provides your body needed warmth and nourishment, our lighter products allow you to remain intentional and clear in the coming year.
Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness. ~ Anne Frank
January 17th is Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
This holiday, apart from commemorating a man whose courage and conviction changed a nation, also reminds us of the undeniable power of collective action. Martin Luther King Jr. lived his life as an example, as a visionary who continually taught of our shared responsibility to never remain silent about things that matter, and potential to manifest a more equitable and empowered world.
As we begin a new year, KM Herbals dares you to dream~above and beyond surface-level new years resolutions, to envision personal and global health and bring it to fruition! Let us use this time of fresh starts to define new chapters, drawing on the successes while learning from the challenges. Together, we can hold fast to the intention that, "peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal."
-Martin Luther King Jr.
KM Herbals wishes you all a very happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! May it blossom with love, enlightenment, and support for a bright future ahead!

Immune Boosting Lemon & Ginger Tea
Try this fresh and invigorating tea the next time you're feeling under the weather. It's quick, easy, and uses many common - but highly medicinal - kitchen ingredients. Lemon is cleansing and detoxifying to our system, making it a great go-to ingredient during the first signs of illness. Ginger aids digestion and circulation, warming our bodies and settling upset stomachs. Cayenne is warming as well, but also synergizes any formula that it is in, carrying it into our systems quicker. Here's the recipe:
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil, add fresh ginger, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Strain out ginger and add freshly squeezed Lemon juice and Honey to taste. Top off with a pinch of Cayenne Pepper, mix and enjoy.
