Goldenrod for Allergies

Allergy Tincture
Goldenrod is not only gorgeous, lining meadows with gold autumn flowers, but very useful in treating seasonal allergies. Some people try to blame the brilliant flowers on their allergies, but goldenrod is not wind pollinated, it is insect pollinated, and is not the cause of allergies. To the contrary, give it a try and it may help you get through the season with fewer sniffles so you can enjoy those beautiful flowers!
Made seasonally.
Suggested usage: Take 1-2 dropperfuls in water, juice, or tea as needed. Tinctures typically last 1-5 years.
1 oz amber dropper bottle- $10

More info on Goldenrod:
There are about 45 North American species of Solidago, and one European species (Solidago virga-aurea). The most common here is Solidago canadensis, and though most goldenrods are difficult to tell from one another, you can tell the canadensis by the galls on the stems. Another favorite goldenrod is Solidago odora, because it has a more anise-like flavor, in contrast to the canadensis which is more resinous. Personally, I haven’t found a goldenrod I didn’t like. It makes an excellent tonic for the kidneys and I drink it as a tea made with the dried leaves and flowers whenever my lower back is feeling sluggish, or when there is a buildup of toxins in the blood, often demonstrated by the condition of the skin. It is slightly bitter, not sweet, and if I use fresh leaves for the tea it becomes too strongly bitter for my taste. Though I personally prefer teas for myself in general, I always have a tincture on hand too for ease of use.  For environmental allergies, it acts in a preventative manner, and can be taken regularly to help reduce attacks. In the specific case of cat allergies, however, it is known to help even in the moment. For more info, see my plant profile on Goldenrod.

Bug Bite Remedy

My half ounce tins of Bug Rub is on sale right now for $2/tin. I made this batch last week, but I made the mistake of putting them in the fridge, thinking it would keep the salve nice and solid. But when I opened one up yesterday I found some rust around the edges! Oops! The salve is still good, and helps reduce the swelling from bug bites and poisonous plant rashes. I usually have swollen, painfully itchy bites that last for days, but when this is applied right after getting bitten, they are usually gone within a couple of hours!

Ninja Balm

Fabulous for sore muscles! This balm is made with a base of arnica flower oil and comfrey oil. These herbs are wonderful for inflammation, cell repair, nerve damage, soreness, and healing muscle tissues. This blend also contains arnica and saint john’s wort extracts, rosemary essential oil, and eucalyptus essential oil for pain relief, joint issues, calming muscular cramps, nerve pain and repair, muscular stiffness, muscle tone, circulation improvement, inflammation, and overall soreness. I currently have a few jars made with the addition of cayenne oil as well, for warming, stimulating pain relief- please specify if you’d like to try one with cayenne.

If you have worked your body hard, rub out your muscles with this balm and the next day you may not be nearly as sore! It really truly improves the state of your muscles the following day especially. This balm is how I’ve gotten through so many shows without my body breaking down from the intense work. The first herbal balm I made for myself, and started sharing and selling to my fellow ballet company members- it essentially started Forest Faerie Herbals for me!
Not for use on broken skin. For that, try my Herbal Antiseptic Ointment.

All ingredients I use are certified organic, non-certified but organically grown from my garden, ethically wildcrafted, or naturally grown and non-irradiated.
1.5 oz jar~ $8
4 oz jar~ $15

Lemongrass Salve

Lemongrass Love

Lemongrass Salve is especially directed at regenerating tissue after injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and connective tissues. It contains many of the ingredients I use in my other salves and balms, such as comfrey leaf, arnica flower, and lavender, which contain anti-inflammatory, healing especially to muscle, tendon, and bone, pain relieving, and muscle soothing properties, st. john’s wort for nerves and tendons, and of course, lots of lemongrass essential oil for those connective tissues in particular! Add in a little solomon’s seal rhizome to get those synovial fluids healthy, clove and cayenne for their healing, blood moving benefits, and it’s quite the mix of goodness. It comes out an herbal green and has a strong, lemony scent.

All ingredients I use are certified organic, non-certified but organically grown from my garden, ethically wildcrafted, or naturally grown and non-irradiated.
1.5 oz jar~ $7
