We have added mullein to our stock of alcohol tinctures. The tincture/extract contains both leaf and flower.
Mullein leaf is great for upper respiratory issues and for bringing up stubborn phlegm from the lungs. Perfect for those hard, unproductive coughs that rattle the body. Mullein flower stimulates a stagnant lymphatic system.
Tinctures/extracts are not to be confused with essential oils. Tinctures are a way of taking herbs medicinally. They are a more potent way of getting the herbal healing properties into your system and can be stored for years. All my tinctures are currently alcohol tinctures. For those avoiding alcohol, I will make glycerin or vinegar extracts upon request, however keep in mind those type of extracts tend to not be as potent. Tinctures take 4-6 weeks to produce.
Finally starting to get some of the favorites re-stocked. It has been a struggle with soap this summer as the humidity wreaked havoc on it. Not only did the moisture affect the soaps already on hand, but it kept the newly made soaps from drying. I stopped making it for that reason, but hope to start up again soon. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of soaps to choose from!
I revised the standard recipe a bit (elderberries, ginger root, cinnamon & cloves) to include elder flowers as well, which can be helpful against fever, colds, flu and inflammation. This batch is made with raw, local honey and fresh ginger root. The only preservative in the syrup is the honey, so store in fridge for longer shelf life. You may also add a touch of high-quality brandy for additional health benefits and preservative qualities. I have elderberry syrup kits available if you’d like to keep it in your cupboard to make yourself as needed.
Effective this week, I will have new shop days and hours. The shop will no longer be open on Wednesdays.
New Business Hours:
Thursday-Saturday 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
I will still offer “by Appointment” hours and porch pick-up for those who are unable to visit during open times. I still accept special order requests. Fresh eggs are available daily on the porch. (Self-serve)
I apologize if this inconveniences anyone. I have several house projects I’d like to get done this summer, and consolidating the shop hours will help with that immensely! Wishing everyone a wonderful summer!
This sunscreen provides the needed protection against UVA and UVB sun rays without harsh chemicals, while keeping your skin lubricated and moisturized at the same time. Goes on slightly white, but body heat and sun will melt it into your skin quickly. The non-nano, uncoated zinc oxide, as well as some of the protection values in the oils, will give this sunscreen an SPF of at least 20, and likely higher. Peppermint oil has the added benefit of repelling insects.
Contains Coconut Oil (SPF8), Sweet Almond Oil (SPF5), Beeswax, Shea Butter (SPF5), Non-nano, uncoated Zinc Oxide (20% of product for 20 SPF), Vitamin E and pure Peppermint Essential Oil.
A lot of research, thought, prayer and time went into this anointing oil. Anointing was new to me, but it is making an important and much-needed comeback. Visit my product page for more information. (Scroll down. It is the first product shown on the page.) The oil is infused with biblical herbs and essential oils for a very special blend.
