Comfrey is sweet and astringent, cool and moist with a secondary drying effect. In my creams it works to moisten dryness; strengthen muscles, tendons, joints and bone; clear bruising, damp heat and inflammation; heal fissures, wounded or torn tissue, old and new scars. The earliest plasters for broken bones were made by herbalists from mashed comfrey mixed with oils and mud.

rose rejuvenation cream

$45.00

65gm. This one I designed to be a wrinkle prevention cream. At times I have called it fab face food. It really is super skin food. For years I have called it anti-wrinkle cream and it is loved by many. It’s gorgeous and smells heavenly – but I didn’t put the ingredients in to make the smell – I put them in for their effects on the skin. It deserves a better name – so here it is. This one I designed to restore the collagen layer, to prevent it thinning, to keep the circulation to the face healthy.

Contains: 
65gm of lavender, borage, comfrey, fennel, rose, chamomile and rose water; shea butter and beeswax; oils of wheatgerm, jojoba, almond, rosehip, flax seed and evening primrose; essential oils of lemon, rosemary, sweet orange, rose geranium.

60gm. I designed this to be a first aid kit in a jar. It soothes pain and heals wounds while it protects against infection and speeds up all healing.

anti-inflammatory pain relief cream for joints

$35.00

60gm. I started making hypericum oil in the early 90s – collecting the fresh flowers in the wild. Taking a picnic and walking and soaking up fresh air – I still love doing it. It is such a powerful healing oil, I began to use it in all my creams and adding it to all new designs. In 2000 one of my favourite long term clients had developed severe back pain and couldn’t sleep. I insisted on spinal Xrays and the Dr insisted on a bone density test. Crystal deposits, or spurs, could be seen on the ends of bones in three spinal process junctions.

Contains: 
55gm of hypericum flowers infused in sweet almond oil; flax seed oil; beeswax and shea butter; herb tinctures of chamomile, horsetail, wild yam, nettles, comfrey root, comfrey leaf, meadowsweet, sage, cayenne; essential oils of lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, rose geranium, peppermint, lemon.

broken veins repair cream

$35.00

60gm. I made this cream for a friend with very rosy cheeks from broken veins. She asked me to create it – and then she went away to Queensland for 6 months. A friend of hers rang to ask for the same cream. I explained I couldn’t make it until I knew if it worked – and since she hadn’t asked for another jar I didn’t think it had worked. “Oh it worked alright!” she said. “I stayed with her last week and the broken veins had all gone.” Now many women have been helped by this cream to repair their broken veins – in legs and faces.

Contains: 
55gm of hypericum flowers infused in sweet almond oil; oils of sweet almond, jojoba, evening primrose and rosehip; herb tinctures of calendula, borage, parsley root, rosemary, arnica, comfrey root and witchhazel; beeswax and shea butter; essential oils of lavender, rose geranium, peppermint, rosemary, cypress; Himalayan Flower Enhancers - hidden splendour, aura clearing.

scar repair cream

$35.00

60gm. While I was teaching herbal medicine at a college in Sydney a student asked me if I thought I could make a cream to repair scars for her mother in Canada. Her mother had a bad car accident leaving her with many scars – some deep ones on her face. The scars were 2 years old. I made the cream and the young woman sent it home to her mum. Three weeks later she reported her mother’s scars were much improved and could she send 3 more jars. With four jars she got almost complete repair of her scars.

bruises, sprains and strains cream

$35.00

60gm. I first created this cream about 30 years ago for my step sons and their father who work in theatre and films building sets. Their accidents and injuries tested my designs beautifully! I improved it over the years until it became the best cream for healing my son, who is a Kung Fu warrior and instructor. His pupils use it too – they say it’s the best they can find. I made it to dissolve the blood that has leaked out of broken blood vessels and formed bruising.
