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.

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

$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. I made it for the builders in the family and then I made it for the babies bottoms burned by the wet nappies. The babies, the gardeners and the builders all love it!

Contains: 
55gm of hypericum flowers infused in sweet almond oil; oils of sweet almond and wheatgerm; beeswax and shea butter; herb tinctures of yarrow, comfrey, calendula, chickweed; essential oils of lavender, tea tree, rosemary.

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.

Contains: 
55gm of oils of sweet almond, wheatgerm, flax seed, castor and rosehip; herb tinctures of comfrey root, comfrey leaf, calendula; beeswax and organic butter; essential oils of lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus, lemon; Himalayan Flower Enhancers – vital spark, childrens flower, down to earth; Bach flowers - rescue remedy, walnut, star of bethlehem; Humanifest essences – emerald, moonflower, pink flannel flower.
