Culture Meets Creative Necessity

“A cup of tea in the morning and a glass of wine at night are all that I need”
If my Jamaican heritage has taught me anything, it's that there is (almost) no minor health issue that a good blended tea can’t solve and that natural herbs and spices are mother natures gift to us. I created Hummingbird Blends to offer seasonal custom blends of some of my favorite things - tea, soap, and skin treatments.
Here's the Tea...
I have carefully crafted special blends that offer a uniquely captivating experience for the various parts of your day. The hand-picked seasonal ingredients evoke different feelings that will give you a boost of energy in the morning or bring you to a state of relaxation when you need it at night. Have a belly ache, we've got a tea for that! Feel like a cold is coming on, we've got a tea for that too. There's no denying that nature has a cure for most all ailments and we are making full use of her vast supplements.
Soap upon a time...
I began making soaps around 2016, after struggling for years with my sensitive but also dry skin. Not sure why the skin care industry seems to believe only excessively oily skin can be sensitive, which means many ingredients are drying. I decided to give up on the irritating, industrially-made soaps and body cleansers that only made things worse for me. I chose to take matters into my own hands; mixing, blending, and testing different ingredient and fragrance combinations until I found ones that worked for me and my "unique" skin situation. That’s why only the best natural, seasonal ingredients make their way into our hand-made small-batch artisanal soaps, bath salts, bath bombs, and scrubs.
We always use ingredients that have known benefits to our body and spirit. From Chamomile that is known to calm the mind and relax the muscles to Turmeric which is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Mother nature provides us with healing ingredients that we should be taking advantage of.
Our soaps are rich in moisture without being tacky to the touch or lacking the lathering effect. Oils, butters and honey help nourish the skin through hot summer days and cold winter nights.
No animal products or animal byproducts are used in our teas. Only nature's best herbs, flowers, spices, dried fruit, and sweeteners.

Ever so often the age old question of how often is too often or not often enough for someone to shower arises...While most organizations that I reviewed advised that daily showering is not required for most people...poor hygiene or infrequent showers can cause a buildup of dead skin cells..

Consider coconut flakes, passionfruit, and strawberries. artificial sweeteners are convenient but fruit + tea = healthy, sweetened goodness in a cup.
