The Balanced Blonde

Another adaptogenic coffee brand I am obsessed with, that was started by a working mama who needed to get her coffee fix but wanted to do so in the healthiest way possible. They have 7 adaptogens & 2 mushrooms in their koffees, plus 4 other herbs that are great for detox, lymph health, and digestive support.” - Jordan Younger, The Balanced Blonde

Free & Native

I've been trying to find more natural alternatives of morning energy instead of the go-to matcha, so I've replaced it with a cup of this adaptogenic herbal coffee replacement. No gluten, caffeine, sugar, or coffee! Perfect remedy to get you going without the disservice to your adrenals.” - Sierra, for Free & Native


“Having integrity really helps me to be productive. If I am proud and fully standing behind all of my decisions in the business, and I am executing in the business in accordance with my values, then I don’t have energy, thought, and money tied up in feeling like I didn’t quite do the right thing. Having a strong compass of values helps me to make decisions faster and choose *which* decisions to make more quickly, as well.” - Lopa van der Mersch, founder of Rasa
