I have always been fascinated by plant medicine. I started exploring the plant world many years ago. It started with looking into the food I eat and products I use on and in my body, with the thinking that I could make myself healthier. I already knew about pesticides and all the other awful things that are in our food and water. What I didn't know was that body products also had an array of horrible ingredients. It set me on a path to make my own whenever possible. I found that by lots of study, listening to my inner voice and the whisperings of the ancestors I could tap into this ancient wisdom..
By using herbs the way they were meant to be used , eating right, exercise , getting enough sleep, meditation and drinking lots of water your body will reward you with a long healthy life. As Hippocrates said “ Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. I think that is good for inside and outside the body.

Clary Sage helps relieve stress as well as an antibacterial ,soothing and strengthening skin..Rose Geranium helps to balance the skin's oil production, helping with skin irritations.
Directions ~ The best time to use this balm is fresh out of the shower on warm skin. It helps to absorb better and feels wonderful! It also makes a great hair conditioner. Take a quarter size amount and rub together in your hands then massage into your scalp and hair. Take a warm towel and wrap your head. Leave on for an hour then wash as normal. Please keep in cool place. The butters will melt in warmer temperatures.
Because this Body Balm is whipped warmer temperatures will melt the butter. I woulod prefer not to ship this item in hotter months.
