- Yarrow is a legendary herb of the ages, a great protector, and healer. As stories go, the legendary character Achilles was dipped in a bucket of yarrow tea when he was a baby to protect him from harm. The only part that wasn't consecrated was his heel. We all know, that was his vulnerability that lead to his death. With astringent and anti-microbial properties, yarrow stops bleeding and prevents infection. It is useful for varicose veins and bruising.
- Lavender is a member of the Mint Family and a wise woman herb. She calms, relaxes, and achieves balance with its cleansing and aromatic properties. The word 'Lavender', comes from "lavare" (Latin meaning 'to wash') and has been used for over 2,000 years in various cultures for purification including Roman bath houses and Egyptian mummification process. It removes emotional blockages, allows one to gently focus, and is regarded as a 'nervine' to tone and support the nervous system, allowing deep relaxation to body and mind. She creates moments of pure serenity, clearing emotions as well as our skin.
Calendula carries the energy of the sun in its yellow-orange flower petals which transfers to our skin to give a healthy, radiant glow inside and out. With vulnerary, anti-septic, and anti-inflammatory properties, calendula is considered one of the best remedies for all kinds of skin issues, including ones that stubbornly refuse to heal. When massaged on congested lymph-nodes, it helps stimulates drainage and detoxification. This incredible herbal ally raises the body’s vitality.
- Plantain grows abundantly as a weed in lawns, driveways, cracks in the pavement and along woodland trails. Its leaves contain slippery mucilage that soothes and heals everyday skin issues. It stops itching and helps wounds to heal. An indispensable herb to have in your materia medica or first aid kit.
- Jojoba oil is liquid gold for the skin. It is truly the best oil for all skin types because the structure is closely similar to the skin's natural oils, allowing it to be absorbed quickly and deeply into the skin to moisturize, protect, and balance natural oils without clogging pores. Jojoba increases skin's suppleness, soothes inflammation, and seals in moisture. It contains antioxidants, vitamins A, D, E, minerals, and fatty acids to give the restorative and healing properties to your skin.
