About Me

I’m a stay-at-home mom with a medical degree . . . and tons of hobbies. The products I sell are ones that I make myself, and love using. I’ve always been interested in herbs and natural medicine, and have learned how to use them to help my family. Of course, sharing with friends and family generated too much interest to handle without a website.

Herbal Ointments

I grew up using comfrey for cuts and bruises, and learned of other valuable healing herbs as I studied. I also love to use herbal remedies, if possible, to avoid the damaging side effects of typical medications. I combined the most effective herbs I’ve used with healing oils and essential oils like tea tree, to make a great all-purpose herbal ointment. I’ve also researched Lemon Balm or Melissa Officinalis and found that it can work as well as anti-viral medications to decrease the healing time of cold sores from the herpes virus.
