botanical name: 
palargonium odorantissimum

Rose geranium is sweet, astringent, pungent and harmonizing – i.e. warming and/or cooling, moistening dryness and drying dampness. It works to stimulate, restore, decongest, soften and stabilize. The medicinal actions are: anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-parasite, anti-ulcer, vulnerary (wound healing), resolves bruising and gives pain relief.

In my creams it softens and moisturizes the skin, repairing dryness, cooling and calming inflammatory conditions like eczema.

220mls I first made this mix for myself when I was studying with the wonderful Dorothy Hall. I had a one year old son that didn't sleep well. I was attending night school at Dorothy's college in Rozelle and doing my homework or revising notes between 11p.m. and 3 a.m. This mix improves circulation for the whole body and supports kidney energy (qi ) and liver strength. It also helps oxygenate the blood.

Contains: 
tinctures of parsley root, nettles, rosemary, ginkgo, yarrow, skullcap, sage, rosehips.

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.

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.
