Easy Winter Health Formulas

Assortment of DIY Winter Wellness offerings

It’s been a long couple of years. Many of us are feeling mental fatigue and existential stress, which negatively impacts our immune systems and overall wellbeing. This year, having some easy winter health formulas on hand feels more important than ever. They can’t cure the state of our world, but they often can help support our immune systems before we get sick and can provide some relief when we’ve caught whatever winter crud is going around. The following formulas have been Mountain Rose Herbs' favorites for a long time and are wonderful additions to your winter care routine. From our home to yours, we wish you a healthy, restful winter!

Coconut curry soup in a bowl

Our first recommendation might not be a “formula” exactly, but it is a time-tested, health-supporting standby: winter soups! Soups are nourishing, comforting, and fantastic vehicles for some of the best herbal allies. This winter we recommend checking out some of these recipes that pack a powerful amount of herbal goodness into every spoonful.

 Now, without further ado, here are three of our favorite winter-support recipes.
