Herbal TONIC ‘Calm’
A Collaboration Between The Herborium and Mirosuna
The perfect daily tonic soup for those experiencing sleep disturbances, anxiety, stress or those who just need to unwind at the end of the day. An ideal accompaniment to your mindfulness practice.
Sip away your stress of the day with our herbal TONIC “calm” blend to nourish your Qi flow and Shen, also known as your mind and spirit.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, your Shen flows between your heart, where it replenishes overnight to encourage sleep, and your mind, where it regulates your mental stimulation during the day.
Sleep disturbances and feelings of stress and anxiety is often attributed to disturbances of Shen. This gentle collection of herbs has been carefully chosen and harmonised to bring peace to your Shen to aid in unwinding, relaxing and ease into a more peaceful night’s rest.
This soup is gluten free. You can choose to create a vegan or meat variation out of Calm.

Ingredients to gather
(Vegan option – disregard step 1 & 3)
The longer the herbal tonic has been cooked, the more the tonic will reduce into a beautiful, darker and richer flavour. If you have never tried Chinese herbal soups before, start from the minimum cooking time for a milder flavour and taste the tonic throughout the cooking process to figure out your preferred flavour strength.
(Recommended) For a richer, full flavour tonic, cook the night before & leave in the herbs to allow further infusion. When you are ready to serve, just bring to boil.
You may substitute water with veggie or meat stock for further flavour enhancement. If using meat, option to skim the layer of fat from the surface and discard before serving.
