plant-based brand Sekaya has always
been passionate about nature’s life-nurturing gifts. It has been offering
high-quality plant-based products with ingredients that have been traditionally
used for their health-promoting benefits that are backed by science.
One of its beloved
product lines is Sekaya Botanic Infusion, a curated roster of botanic infusions
or natural blends to help address specific health goals and support one’s daily
wellness. Served in plant-derived and non-toxic tea bags, all the ingredients
of every infusion are carefully sourced from farms that have the United States’
Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Quality Assurance International (QAI)
The brand has also
made it its mission to educate people about how they can harness the wonderful
benefits of nature to support their health and wellness through the Prescribing
Nature series. This time around, Sekaya assembles wellness experts for Nature’s
Blends How do botanic infusions keep us well? that aims to start a
conversation about the different ways we can benefit from the powerful
therapeutic properties of botanicals.
Aromatherapist and essential oil educator at The Oilbularyo Geri Gil joins the series with a discussion on Aromas Heal, on how aromatherapy is a holistic, complementary, and an alternative approach that works to support and help conventional medicine.
“Plant extracts are
not silver bullets, but they are so supportive of our health and wellness.
Having them in your home could be the wellness revolution you are looking for,”
Gil says. “There is so much that plants offer in terms of restoring humans to
optimum health and staying well.”
master and educator Rocel Leoncio
delivers a Tea Appreciation
masterclass that emphasizes how drinking teas and botanic infusions is one of
the easy healthy habits that people can adopt to enhance their daily lives and
truly benefit from nature.
“Having a cup of
tea and botanic infusion at least a day can help boost your energy or even help
you wind down. You can even choose botanic infusions for your exact wellness
concern, as they are usually made of purposely selected botanicals that have
the therapeutic properties to specifically address that,” Leoncio explains.
“Can’t sleep? Got an upset tummy? Want to beat the afternoon slump? You can
find a botanic infusion for that.”
doctor Eca Lorenzo MD, FPCP closes
out the Prescribing Nature session with a talk on Nutrition with Botanicals, affirming the transformative role of
plants in maintaining one’s health, whether enjoyed as supplements, essential
oils, or as plant-based beverages like teas and botanic infusions.
“I'd like to remind
people that however wonderful natural health products are, they are not magic.
You'll get the best from them if you're also mindful of what and how you eat;
that you move your body; get good quality sleep; and manage stress well,” Dr.
Lorenzo points out. “Additionally, it's crucial to choose natural products of
high quality. To ensure that they retain the actual benefits of the plant's
constituents, and they're safe and free from contamination with microbes,
molds, heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxic residues.”
