peppermint

part of plant used: 
leaves
botanical name: 
Mentha x piperata

The leaves of peppermint are a bit sweet, dry, pungent and warming; helping to relax, stimulate, disperse, restore and astringe. Medicinal actions of peppermint are: digestive, carminative, anti-spasmodic, diaphoretic (promotes sweating), anti-emetic (stops vomiting), mild sedative, peripheral vasodilator. It works to activate enzymes and is rich in potassium and magnesium.

In my creams it reduces inflammation, brings warmth and circulation to the area and calms the tissue, thus promoting gentle repair. The essential oil brings increased anti-inflammatory action and pain relief.

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.

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.
“Oh it worked alright!” she said. “I stayed with her last week and the broken veins had all gone.”
