News -- Summer Harvest 2018

Summer Harvest
We’ve been harvesting and loving every minute of it!

Harvest

The emerald green of fresh Violet leaves macerating in an Organic Olive Oil is so vibrant it brings us to sheer giggles of joy.  This year’s Violet harvest was totally abundant, enabling us to bring back the beloved Violet leaf infused olive oil and Breast Oil again. Yay! 
 

At the time of this writing, Fresh Arnica flowers are infusing on the shelves in an Organic Olive Oil. We are also eagerly waiting for this year’s St. John’s Wort harvest. Both local, fresh infused oils go into our Trauma Salve, a favorite for bumps, bruises, sore muscles and strains. 

What a beautiful and bountiful season! 



Our Annual Summer Vacation Hours
Closed Wednesday, July 4th – Sunday, July 8th.




Summer Favorites
No Bugs!

It is the bug repellant time of year. For years we been receiving No Bug Oilpositive feedback on Rebecca’s Bug Away Spray and No Bug Oil. The spray can be applied liberally to skin, hair, clothing or on a blanket for your favorite summer concert.

The No Bug Oil is a great option for longer hiking trips, larger areas of exposed skin, boating adventures, or any time in the great outdoors where bugs abound. 

If you do happen to get a bug bite, have no fear! Our Bug Bite Salve is loved by the herbalists on staff for helping to soothe red, itchy and irritated skin. 

Spring Blossom Tea 

100% Organic Ingredients: 
Rosehips, Raspberry Leaf, Lady’s Mantle, Spearmint and Rose Petals.
