The God of winemaking and wine, Dionysus had to be included in our drinks. He is often misunderstood in his role of pleasure and frivolity, but his task was simple. To help to bring joy to life, to bring connection and conversation during times of frivolity and where slaves could find themselves without masters for a time. He was all about having pleasure yes, but amongst company and companionship. In this way we salute him!
A lover of theatre and festival what we see in his connection today is his ability to ask of us to enjoy life more. To take the time to rejoice in all that we have. To find the goodness of life and allow it to be fully enjoyed. As someone who represented those who did not often fit amongst society, we see him as being a vital companion to us all today in our efforts to embrace one another.
Why Dandelion and Mint?
In truth, when I first selected Dandelion it was because of its tenacity that I had come to know and love. A sturdy, hardy plant that continues to grow despite the odds, it works hard to deliver its message to the world. On knowing it further I discover this is exactly who it is on the inside for us, with its ability to be used as a blood tonic, digestive tonic, liver cleanser and production of insulin, this is one heck of a robust plant. I coupled it with the softness of the Mint to allow it to become gentle and more feminine in its digestion and softness to the scent. This is at the very heart of Kuan Yin. What it takes to hold compassion is not just in being soft and of the feminine, but strong and robust to allow the truth of compassion to be known. It is her mantra Gayatri that I sing to the Jun in its creation and the essence that runs through its veins.
If you are new to Jun begin with 100-150ml per day. Slowly increasing over time.
Can be used as a tonic, a refresher or added to any smoothie base to really boost your green smoothie power.
A great drink with friends or in quenching your thirst.
