I make this powerful medicinal oil over a month or more by infusion of 3 miraculous herbs. Included in my Sacred Earth Rejuvenating Balm, as well as my Solid Lotion Body Bars, this oil is all natural and possesses amazing healing and soothing properties.
Plantain leaf, calendula flowers, and chickweed were carefully selected for their longstanding history in natural and native medicine.
*Calendula Flowers – Originating in Europe and parts of Asia, this pretty little flower can now be found all over the world.
Used for centuries, calendula was historically applied to cuts and wounds to stop bleeding, prevent infection and soften rough skin.
During the Civil War and World War I, calendula flowers were used on the battlefields as an antiseptic and in bandaging to promote healing.
*Plantain Leaf – Not to be confused with the fruit of the same name, this now-common herb is native to Asia, Europe, and North America.
So revered for its healing, plantain is one of nine sacred herbs mentioned in the ancient Lacnunga (‘Remedies’), a collection of Anglo-Saxon medical texts.
Often taken internally for respiratory ailments, I employ plantain for its wonderful ability to heal and soothe the skin.
Chickweed – A hard-working member of the carnation family, chickweed herb has been used throughout history for its ability to cool a fever and combat infection.
Rich in minerals, including iron and copper, as well as vitamins A, B, and C, its emollient qualities will soothe itching and irritation stemming from chronic skin conditions, such as psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema.
