Lotions

These hand-blended, emollient rich, moisturizing lotions are scented with therapeutic grade A essential oils. The lotions smell fabulous with a variety of scents. It regenerates the skin from head to toe. Great for all-over body moisturizing, it absorbs quickly with a satin like feel which makes it great for use during the day when you want a lightweight, soothing lotion that does not leave a greasy feeling behind. Long lasting, a little goes a long way. Wonderfully scented, there are many choices of fragrances and essential oils to choose from. The lotions are made with quality ingredients but the base is not an "all natural" lotion, it contains manufacturer components. We love using natural ingredients when we can but have yet to come up with an all natural day time lotion that works this well. We have so many requests and repeat customers for these lotions that we continue to make it.​

Healing Salves, Ointments & Creams

Made in small batches to maintain their integrity, our ointments and salves are made with high quality herbs and oils. There are NO artificial ingredients or perfumes in our salves, just pure essential oils and botanicals! So, what is the difference between a salve, ointment or cream? They all protect the skin while providing antibacterial and/or antifungal healing benefits. Ointments are usually used to protect raw, irritated, or wounded areas from air and moisture. Salves are usually thicker and used on scrapes and wounds. Creams contain water and are more readily absorbed by the skin instead of providing a medicinal protective layer. Our salves, ointments and creams have been blended to serve a particular purpose and each ingredient has been chosen for it's particular healing properties.

Aromatherapy Inhalers

Aromatherapy inhalers enclose a 100% concentration of essential oil(s) in a small 4 part container. To use one, simply unscrew the cap and raise the tip of the inhaler to your nose and inhale slowly and deeply. Inhalers can be transported in a purse, a briefcase or a backpack and are even small enough to fit in a pocket. Inhalers allow you to use your chosen essential oils anywhere. They're very handy for keeping your favorite blends nearby and within reach and they can be used discreetly and easily. They're great in the workplace or in other public settings when you may want to use an essential oil that could pose risk to those with particular health issues or you are unable to use a diffuser. Note: Never add a carrier oil to an inhaler.

Roll Ons

Roll-ons are a convenient way to topically apply your essential oils. There is evidence that oils applied to the skin enter the bloodstream in a short period of time.

You can carry these little containers anywhere; they fit nicely in a purse, pocket, backpack and book bags.

You can choose from a wide variety of tempting flavors. My handmade lip balms go on smooth and will keep your lips supple for hours. My blends are handmade and useful for people of all ages!

Tonics/Teas

In herbal medicine, an herbal tonic is used to help restore, tone and invigorate systems in the body or to promote general health and well-being. An herbal tonic is a solution or other preparation made from a specially selected assortment of the kinds of plants known as herbs. Tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs that you take orally (by mouth). They are usually extracted in alcohol, but they can also be extracted in vegetable glycerine or apple cider vinegar. A herbal tea is a beverage made from steeping or boiling herbs, or the herbs used to make such a beverage. Unlike actual teas, herbal teas do not come from the Camellia Sinensis plant. Herbal teas are also known as a tisane, a herbal infusion, a botanical or an infusion. Created thousands of years ago by our herbal ancestors, these liquid extracts are still a favorite medicinal preparation today. All of our herbal extracts, tonics, teas and tinctures are handcrafted using time honored methods and are formulated to support, nourish, and rejuvenate.

Essential Oil Insect Repellents

CHICAGO, August 27 — Researchers report that nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip that gives the plant its characteristic odor, is about ten times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET—the compound used in most commercial insect repellents.


The finding was reported at the 222nd national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society, by the same Iowa State University research group that two years ago discovered that catnip also repels cockroaches.


Catnip is a perennial herb belonging to the mint family and grows wild in most parts of the United States, although it also is cultivated for commercial use. Catnip is native to Europe and was introduced to this country in the late 18th century. It is primarily known for the stimulating effect it has on cats, although some people use the leaves in tea, as a meat tenderizer and even as a folk treatment for fevers, colds, cramps and migraines.

These natural insect repellents can serve as an alternative to synthetic-chemical-based repellents, which may have toxic effects on human health and on the environment. Each oil  is specifically chosen by age appropriateness and then blended in a pleasant smelling, non-staining spray for ease of application.
