Facial Recipe

Mar 24 2014

My love of simple beauty solutions began when I was a teen.  In fact, it began with this recipe: 

Banana Facial for Dry Skin

-mash half of a banana

-add 2 TBS olive oil

Mash and blend well.  Apply mixture to your clean face.  Leave on for 20 minutes, rinse with warm followed by cool water.  Pat dry.

 

When my dear friend Molly commented later on my glowing skin, I was hooked.    

 

 

New Salves

Aug 10 2011

Using the blood red Saint John's-wort infused oil, plus Arnica and a touch of Cayenne infused oils, we created our new Red Salve.  We are pleased to offer a product great for easing minor aches and pains and providing relief for tight, tired and overworked muscles.  The addition of the Red Salve spurred us to update the names of our other salves.  With its murky hue and Black Walnut as a key ingredient, Anti-Fungal Salve will now be known as Black Salve.  Our Calendula salve created using the sunny calendula and chamomile flowers will now be known as Gold Salve.  

Creating, mixing and formulating bring me great joy...I marvel that these plants are on the Earth for our benefit.  Hope you enjoy.     

St. Johnswort

Jun 10 2011

 With delight today as I observed the herb garden, I noticed the Saint John's wort has begun to flower.  Named because it blooms on the feast day of Saint John the Baptist, June 24th, the specimen in my garden is right on time.  The flowers and leaves will be used to make a blood red oil which is applied topically to ease pain associated with nerve damage, swellings, bruises and other skin trauma. 

New Website

Mar 29 2011

We are so excited about our website.  It has been a long time coming, but finally the stars lined up for us and things fell in to place.  Having no web-design experience what-so-ever, we are quite pleased with the look and feel of our do-it-yourself site.  We hope you enjoy browsing through our products.  To celebrate the opening of our on-line site, we are offering a gift to the first 10 customers.  Thanks and enjoy!
