This one-of-a-kind, “Austintatious” tap festival will bring world renowned tap artists from around the world for a soulful live reunion and an opportunity for the participants to look inward and upward to unpack and discover what it is to be a tap-dancing artist from many of the leaders in the field.

The forecast suggests that Summer is done with the foreplay of Spring & ready get down to business. As the temperatures rise we need to step up our self care game for our physical & emotional bodies. Summer is definitely the time of year to love the skin you’re in. Which means staying hydrated & adding a little more SPF into the mix – at the very least.
On an inner note – we all know that the heat can make us irritable, aggressive & more likely to um, pop off. Suffice to say – our emotional body needs a little extra support to ride the heat wave(s) with patience & maybe even some grace.
There are many Herby allies for you to play with this Summer. Some of The Herb Bar’s favorites are Peppermint, Chamomile & Chrysanthemum, Lemon balm, Lavender, Roses, Catnip, Chickweed, Nettles, Dandelion, Milk Thistle, Hibiscus & Elderflower.
Keep these friends in mind throughout the coming months. They will help you sweat it out, cool it down, hydrate & show your liver (the organ associated with anger) some love.
As for that summer glow… The Herb Bar is excited to share some New, Local & Woman owned product lines that your skin is going to love!
Herban Veda All Natural & Organic Sunscreen
We love the entire Herban Veda line but this natural sunscreen is a must. It not only protects your skin from UV rays with non-nano zinc oxide but has added support from red raspberry seed oil, carrot seed oil, avocado oil, & coconut oil.
Adé Wellness Reiki + Honey Infused Cleanser & Exfoliating Disc
Is this combo a work of genius? We think so. Cleanse & Scrub away the sticky hot summer days AND get some energetic healing while you are at it. Follow it up with her Body Butter for best results.
Our newest tea on the wall will have you beaming all summer long. Steep & chill in the fridge for hydration, antioxidants & peace.
