Pomade (Herbal Salve)

Made from wild plants infused in organic olive oil and beeswax, pomade is an all purpose skin and muscle remedy.

Daisy and comfrey act together to heal bumps and bruises, ease sore and tired muscles and joints through their anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties.

Chickweed (Stellaria Media) cools “hot” skin conditions and inflammations, soothes insect bites, sunburn, irritations of the skin and works to calm inflammation through her cooling powers.

Rose is a well-known anti-inflammatory skin care treatment for the face, hands and all over body rub.

Other combinations of plants are possible according to which plants are available in season. eg nettles, calendula, plantain, lavender, yarrow, violets, aloe vera, St John’s wort and many more.

Solid Perfume

A careful blend of essential oils in an almond and beeswax base provides a fragrant, rich perfume that also calms, uplifts and heals mind, body and soul. Rubbed into the “perfume spots” these special remedies are a delight and a long lasting addition to one’s daily beauty care.

Similarly, liquid perfume, without the beeswax, offers other original and exotic blends.

Infused oils such as rose, lilac and violet, are also effective skin care remedies with a delightful fragrance and healing properties.
