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.”

Certified tea 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.” 

Functional medicine 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.”
