Wylde Faerie Soaps!


Wylde Faerie Soaps!
"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand."
​- W.B. Yeats

Spellbound Soap!

Spellbound Soap
When you're preparing for your day, in need of a few moments of meditation to clear your mind, this soap has all the ingredients to help you cleanse yourself of negative energy. Chockful of ground herbs of lavender, thyme, chamomile flowers and scented with oils of  nag champa, cedar wood, & chamomile, you'll feel empowered with encouragement, success, ambition! I personally enjoy this earthy and sensual soap after a morning yoga session, to carry that sense of physical and mental peace & clarity with me through my busy day, reflecting fondly on the "me-time" shower ritual that started me off on the right side of the broom!



All-Purpose Balm of Gilead


Balm of Gilead


Made from cottonwood buds. 

Some of the most impressive health benefits of Balm of Gilead include its ability to reduce inflammation, soothe the skin, protect the immune system, eliminate pain, and speed healing.

Skin Health Benefits Of Balm Of Gilead

(While Balm Of Gilead has long been taken internally under the guidance of trained herbalists, we are focusing here on just it's skin benefits in the formula we have prepared...which is not to be taken internally.)

Anti-Inflammatory: One of the most common applications for Balm of Gilead is as a prepared topical ointment or salve on inflamed areas of the skin. For example, it acts in a similar way to aloe when applied to sunburn, as it can quickly suck out the heat and itchiness due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds found within this powerful oil. Similarly, when it is applied to areas affected by arthritis, it can reduce inflammation, effectively eliminating pain as well.

Anti-bacterial: Aside from effects like soothing sunburn, the antibacterial properties of Balm of Gilead also mean that it can quickly clear up skin infections or irritations, such as eczema, psoriasis, and even eliminating the appearance of scars and blemishes. For insect bites, it can be rubbed on the affected area for rapid healing and pain relief. The analgesic quality of Balm of Gilead can be used on the temples and neck as well, if you suffer from headaches or migraines.

This preparation’s ingredients
Fresh popular bud infused olive oil, palm kernel oil, and beeswax.
Apply sparingly, and rub in thoroughly...a little goes a long way.

Petals....

Between my mom’s and my own gardens, we have baskets & baskets of rose petals collected from the summer’s bounty, and as a customer, you’ve likely noticed I always sprinkle the bottom of your carefully prepared and handwrapped package with rose petals—a sweet reminder of our earth connections, and a wee piece of my own faerie garden to you!
(Hopefully I don’t trap any faeries in there as well! But if I do, please turn loose in your own garden!)  ~Carol
