Mullein is cool, astringent, a bit sweet, moist but with a drying effect. It works to restore, soften, thicken, soothe and relax . Mullein’s medicinal actions are: demulcent, anti-tussive (stops coughing), sedative, vulnerary ( wound healing), astringent.

In my creams it clears heat and toxins, tightens skin and blood vessel walls, softens blood congestion, clears lymph congestion, reduces swelling and inflammation, relieves pain. Traditionally Mullein has been used in applications for resolving haemorrhoids.

for respiratory infection with immune support

$70.00

220mls Essential for the first aid cupboard. Infections these days are scary and the resistance of so many infections to anti-biotic treatments means that it is essential to have back up treatments. This mix is one I have been making for 30 years. When it doesn't work for my latest infection I remix or redesign it. My clients and I start using it just as soon as we feel the infection start - with that sore throat or headache or runny nose. It often stops the infection before it gets going.

Contains: 
220mls of tinctures of astragalus, echinacea, passionflower, lavender, licorice, mullein, myrrh, sage, elder flowers and berries, ginger, thuja, lomatium, peppermint, cleavers, feverfew.

varicose veins and haemorrhoid cream

$35.00

60gm. This cream I first made over 20 years ago for a woman in pain with serious haemorrhoids. This woman phoned me especially to tell me the pain was gone within an hour of applying this cream. This inspired her to keep applying it for some months. Her haemorrhoids had been a problem for years and just a few months of applying this cream repaired her haemorrhoids. Varicose veins and haemorrhoids are created when the walls of blood vessels collapse and create a bubble.

Contains: 
55gm of hypericum flowers infused in sweet almond oil; oils of wheatgerm and flaxseed; beeswax and shea butter; herb tinctures of yarrow, horsechestnut, witchhazel, lavender, chickweed, mullein, comfrey, aloe; essential oils of lavender, lemon and cypress.
