To tell the history of CAP Beauty (the iconic online destination that has become an institution centered on wellness from within) without a mention of adaptogens would be a tale mistold. Their shelves have never been without them and their belief and love for these powerful herbs serve as a foundation for thier beauty belief philosphy.... 'Begin within'.
As both vendors and consumers of adaptogens, CAP Beauty has learnt a thing or two over the years, and wanted to develop a series of unique herbal blends specifally to support our bodies and minds through the rhythms of the day.
And so... The O’CLOCKS were born. The 8am, The 4pm and The 10pm blends have been designed to support you. All day, every day. They energise when you lag. They ground you when flightiness abounds. Let them be your handmaidens and embrace the magic. Your best days await with the O'CLOCKS.
To allow CAPS vision to come to life, the talents of “Superior Herbalist” Rehmannia Dean Thomas were enlisted. Rehmannia practices Taoist Herbology, specifically from a lineage known as the Gate of Life, which he considers to be the most sophisticated system of herbs ever developed. His formulas support our three essential forces, Jing, our physical and reproductive bodies, Chi, our ame or metabolism, and Shen, our spirit. To balance these “Three Treasures,” as they are known, is to create health and energy. Rehmannia studied under the great Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden and has written six books on tonic herbalism. He’s forged relationships with the most meticulous suppliers of herbs and works with the very highest quality ingredients. For all of these reasons and more, CAP tapped him to develop their very first collection of adaptogenic blends.
A word from Rehmannia: "Chinese herbs are meticulously categorized according to their “atmospheric energies,” and can be formulated to serve the circadian rhythms, metabolic, hormonal and spiritual needs of our day. When we wake, our body seeks stimulus, and “Yang” herbs are appropriate. As we begin our day, herbs that tonify Chi are helpful to supply our daily energy needs, and as we wind down in the evenings, we can take elixirs of Yin replenishing and spirit soothing (Shen) herbs. The formulas I designed for CAP are combined of herbs that support the differing daily energy needs from stimulation to replenishment, when we need it."
