Quick Tip: 2 Ways to Cool off this Summer

Looking for ways to stay cool this summer? Try using these two Chinese Herbs that can be picked up at your local famers market or favorite produce store: 

1. Watermelon (Xi Gua)- clears summerheat especially with significant thirst, and generates fluids.  Eat in moderation so as not to snuff digestive fire. 

2. Mint (Bo He)- clears heat from the upper body, and can be helpful in venting heat rashes. It's a good choice for those who might feel agitated or frustrated in the heat. Add a few fresh leaves to your water.
