Herb infused oils are a way to carry the lipophilic (fat soluble) medicinal properties of herbs into the body through our largest organ, the skin, epigentically turning on our capacities for health and wellness through engaging with the wisdom of plant medicines.*

“I am rarely lonely, for all of life has it’s own song and it carries me along with it in its pattern of sounds. I never knew in what a great emptiness I lived until I began to sing the sacred songs of the earth.”

~Stephen Harrod Buhner from Sacred Plant Medicine

Ayurvedic Oils

Organic Herb infused oils for daily self massage (abhyanga) and nasal application (nasya). Daily self massage is a traditional part of a healthy dinacharya, or daily rhythm. It encourages lymphatic flow, stimulates the release of positive hormones like oxytocin, sends the medicinal qualities of the herbs deep into the body through the largest organ, the skin, and protects and soothes the skin and nervous system. Nasya, or applying herbalized oils to the nasal membranes, is a way to protect and nourish the brain for increased memory, cognition, and spiritual awareness, as the nose is a direct route to the brain and the portal of breath and consciousness. Nasya also keeps the sensitive nasal membranes nourished and protected so we don’t get dried out and create overactive mucus which can become a breeding ground for infections. If we have accumulation of mucus, nasya helps to clear and move the congestion so we can breathe and circulate life force energy in our bodies for vibrant living.*

Salves

Salves are a wonderful way to extract and apply the lipophilic (fat soluble) qualities of herbs, combined with antibacterial and antifungal qualities of beeswax, and delicious essential oils, to heal burns, itching, eczema, stings, and other skin irritations. Our salves are made with organic, wild crafted, and home grown ingredients, and lots of love and mantra.*

Tinctures

Tinctures are herbal constituents extracted in alcohol. One of the great things about tinctures is that they last for up to seven years, so they are an easy and convenient way to keep herbs on hand for you and your family to use as needed without fear of them going bad before they are used. Tinctures are best taken in a small amount of warm water to decrease the astringent quality of the alcohol and increased the relaxed absorption of the herbal energetics. Our tinctures are made with organic, wild crafted, and homegrown ingredients, and lots of love and mantra.*

Liniment

This traditional Chumash liniment is a recipe taught to me by Cecilia Garcia, Chumash Healer. It calls on the healing powers of westerm sage (artemesia californica), white sage (salvia apiana), and avocado pits (to help pull the lipophilic qualities of the herbs into the alcohol), and vodka. In the original Chumash recipe, bear fat was used instead of avocado pits. It is for external application only! This is a wonderful rub for sore joints and muscles and can be massaged into areas of need and followed with a hot water bottle to help the herbs penetrate more deeply. It can also be added to a warm water foot soak to absorb herbs through the soles and relieve pain and induce relaxation.*

“Hey Liz, I just wanted to let you know I’ve been using the Pitta abhyanga oil on my skin and it is fantastic. My arms were so dry after our recent week long river trip that the skin was just sloughing off. Started using the oil and haven’t stopped. I like it so much-nice smell and nice feel. This from a guy who never uses any lotion. Thanks!” Kirk Shimeall
