Rose flowers are sweet, cool, astringent and both dry and moist. They work to calm, stabilize, restore, decongest and astringe. Made into a tincture the medicinal actions of rose flowers are: mild sedative and analgesic, anti-inflammatory, haemostatic (arrests bleeding and repairs broken blood vessels) and astringent. Rose tincture used in external preparations promotes tissue repair and helps the skin retain moisture – helps hydrate dry and inflamed skin – clears inflammation and heat of eczema or infection.

Adrenal stress is underlying many malfunctions, discomforts and hormonal struggles of our bodies. Our adrenal glands participate in supporting many of our vital functions, the digestion of food, the production of glucose for energy, the release of energy, the control of our blood pressure and heart rate, muscle strength and function. They manufacture and release anti-inflammatory hormones when we need them and they release ingredients that help make our male and female hormones.

They contain and release our vital life force and our courage.

for concentration support

$70.00

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.

rose rejuvenation cream

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.

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.

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.”

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.
