Note: Spikenard is another name for some lavender. Lavender is a crucial ingredient in every herbal made in the Cottage. I have a alternate formula for people actually allergic to lavender, but until enough come knocking, cash in hand, I’m not making it because I had to donate the 99% of the previous lot (when they neared their 18-month-later pull date) to a charity clinic so as not to waste them.

Healing Herbals

  • Green Comfort salve
  • HerbaLiniment pain rub
  • UnBurn Gold spray
  • MindSoothe balm

K.C. once asked me a crucial question concerning the topical healing herbals I make, “Why do you want to keep making them?” He pressed until I blurted out, “The herbs want to help.” I remind myself of that whenever I weary of the cycles of planting, watering, feeding, growing, pruning, spraying,  harvesting, drying, storing, making, bottling, labelling, marketing, selling, shipping….

“Herbs want to help.”

And that is the raison d’être for the herbal products I make and sell.
