• How Products Are Made

    0 comments / Posted by 1

    Many people have been asking us how exactly the products are made and if we make it all ourselves.

    So I guess we need to explain more about how the products are actually made…

    We make all the herbal infused oils, salves and balms by hand, using various infusing methods with a range of organic herbs, unrefined, steam-distilled and cold-pressed ingredients. 

    What does it mean to infuse the oils…the herbal infused oils are made on premise and take about 6 plus weeks to solar infuse. We do not buy the herbal oils  and then mix them to make an herbal infusion. Before and after the solar infusion we also use another method to intensify the process. This process is our own and it is an older method. This is where the most intense part takes place and it is much more labor intense.

    We also have a green house to help the infusion along and a place that they are stored in order to keep it cool after infusion. Once the infusion is made it is measured according to the percentage that is needed to make that specific therapeutic herbal salve.

    Depending on when the herbs have been picked, dried and stored and when the oils have been infused the color and scent can actually be different. Nature is incredible, and it is always different.  There will never be any 2 batches that will ever be the same.  But the healing power of each herb will still be as intense.

    Our products are made in small batches in order to pay attention to each step in the process and to keep the integrity and quality of the therapeutic infused herbal oil. Keeping the integrity of each batch also means each batch will be different in consistency and look. You might even have some residual herbs in a salve giving it even more intensity.

    We try to make our batches only twice a month during the full moon and the new moon and only if our supply is low.  The energy is much stronger and yet much gentler for the batches to really intensify.

    We do not keep lots of stock on hand.  Our products are made when needed simply because the salves and balms need to be as close to the date made for the intensity of the herbs.  And so there might be a wait for some salves if we are out of stock.

    All our salves and balms are dated at the time they were produced.

    So there is a lot of thought process and labor that goes into making a real therapeutic herbal salve and balm.

  • Psoriasis, Eczema, Rosacea and Acne

    Our Psoriasis and Eczema salve has incredible healing herbs and healing oils that penetrate deep and heal.  We developed this salve for psoriasis and eczema conditions, but what we have also discovered is its ability to help with  rosacea and acne.

    Most people believe that salves can only be applied to the body but not true!  They can also be applied to the face, scalp and feet.  Basically all over ones body if need be.  Salves are very gentle and go a long way.  A small amount covers a lot of ground.  Salves do not have butters or creams or water so it is a bit oilier but it penetrates much faster then creams.  Creams lay on top of the skin, while salves quickly penetrate.  With rosacea and acne you want it to penetrate into the skin to heal just like psoriasis and eczema you want it to penetrate and heal fast.

    Any salve can be applied to the face, but what is amazing with this salve is the quickness of the salve to tone down the redness in rosacea and help acne to diminish.

    Why such a discovery you ask, well, herbs have many different constituents and uses and so when combined and infused with special healing oils it produces incredible synergy and healing aspects.

    Herbs have multipurpose use and therefore when we test on other conditions we always become amazed as to their ability to help with other skin problems.
