Our salves are a blend of infused oils and unfiltered beeswax intended for topical application. They are a traditional method for application of herbal oils. Beeswax aids in slowing absorption for longer effect.
The skin is our largest organ, making this an effective method of herbal therapy. Our Salves are all hand poured and made with organic & biodynamic herbs warm-infused in organic jojoba oil. Our herbs are supplied by Meeting House Farm in Scarborough ME
Our Massage Oils pure organic jojoba oil warm-infused with organic & biodynamic herbs from Meeting House Farm in Scarborough Maine.
We infuse organic jojoba oil with freshly dried herbs at 80 degrees for 8 days. Finished oils are finely filtered but never pressed. Sometimes we add some dried herbs back into the finished product...just to be fancy.
Massage is a relaxing way to bring herbal therapy into your life through skin absorption.
Tisane is an old term for what we know today as an herbal tea. We use tisane because the word "tea" actually refers to the Tea plant - which contains caffine. None of our blends have any actual "tea" plant or caffine in them. Not that we think tea or caffine is bad. We love it! But its not what we grow in Maine.
Our Tisanes are herbal blends of freshly dried plants - grown organically and biodynamically in Maine. Our blends are formulated to taste good and to be good for you.
The art of brewing a tisane is a calming ritual - that has health benefits in and of itself. Take time in your day to simmer a kettle, pour the hot water into a french press over the beautifully dried herbs. Strain after 8 minutes using your french press. Sit , sip and relax with a hot cup of herbal bliss.
Elixirs are alcohol and honey based. Crafting an elixir starts with local organic Maine distilled alcohol from Split Rock Distillery. In ratios specific for each plant we infuse freshly harvested organic and biodynamic herbs from Meeting House Farm .
Alcohol is a solvent and in effect dehydrates the plant - pulling the active constituents out of the plant along with the water. These constituents are preserved in the alcohol solution. We infuse the plants in the alcohol for one lunar cycle. Then the plant is pressed out of the alcohol. The pressed liquid is pressed and filtered for purity.
This tincture is then combined with honey from Portland Bees that are kept in a biodyamic fashion. It makes fo a delicious elixir.
We suggest taking the elixirs diluted in your tisane or warm water. You can also take them by mouth directly. We think they taste pretty good.
