What is Hygge, Anyway?

What is Hygge, Anyway?

If you've been on Pinterest anytime within the last few years, you've probably run into the Scandinavian term "hygge" (pronounced "hue-guh"). So what is it? Basically, in Nordic countries, they have long dark winters that require lots of indoor time, so they like to employ hygge in their space to make that time not just bearable, but comfy-cozy.

Hygge is all about twinkle lights, candles, soft blankets, and sitting around the fire with your loved ones playing board games instead of playing on your phone. It's about bringing the natural world into your home when it is too snowy and cold to spend lots of time outdoors. 

To implement hygge Fangboner style, try lighting our Winter at Fangboner Farms candle while enjoying a hot cup of one of our many tea blends, get comfy under your softest blanket and do something that brings you pure joy - it could be reading a book, catching up with an old friend over the phone, or knitting. Find your own way to hygge this winter, and we promise you'll never feel resentful of the cold days ahead.

Living Well with Lemongrass

Living Well with Lemongrass

Whether you decide to cook with it or steep it in a hot cup of tea, our herb for this week has multiple benefits. Lemongrass can be found in two of our tea blends , including one of our newer additions, the butterfly pea blend . A popular ingredient in many international cuisines, it packs a flavorful punch no matter how you decide to use it.

Now let's get to the health benefits: “Lemongrass is natural diuretic and can be used as a detox to help kick-start your metabolism,” says Dr. Kristal. “It is a great alternative to sugary drinks, as it is full of antioxidants that prevent cellular dysfunction”.

To recap, lemongrass can help you lose weight, help you maintain healthy arteries, and act as a preventative for liver failure and edema through its diuretic properties. Next time you’re at the farm, ask for a sample of our lemongrass blends to find out how tasty it can be to do something great for your health.
