Calendula Oil is prepared from whole flowers of Calendula officinalis plants. To assure optimal extraction of Calendula's compounds,
the flowers are hand-harvested while in full bloom, and are carefully
shade-dried to retain their full color & aroma. The flowers are then
thoroughly extracted and concentrated into cold-pressed, certified
organic olive oil.
This organic blend of the two most popular Echinacea species (Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia) is carefully grown on our certified organic farm. The herbs are harvested when they are most potent, and processed immediately to retain their beneficial constituents.

Echinacea was used by many Native American populations throughout the United States. This widespread use was adopted by the Eclectic physicians in the U.S. and its use was documented in medical texts until 1947. A German pharmaceutical manufacturer imported Echinacea purpurea to Germany in the 1930's, and since then, German and American scientists have been researching the clinical usefulness of the herb with an emphasis on supporting the immune system. This herb is popular both in Europe and in the US.

Since the era of the Eclectics, herbalists have known that all good quality Echinacea products cause a mild tingling sensation in the mouth. This is due to the alkylamides, which are recognized for their biological effect on the immune system.

As a result of many clinical trials that were done in the 1990's, Echinacea sales account for approximately 10% of the dietary supplement market. Many clinical trials are still being conducted today.

White oak's high tannin content provides an astrigent quality; it has been used to reduce bleeding in the mouth, to treat diarrhea, and as a first aid herb.* Calendula flowers have skin-soothing, protecting and toning properties. They are used in all types of skin care preparations including salves, body washes, scrubs, creams, ointments and lotions.

Lady's mantle is a perennial herb found in North America, Europe, and Asia. It has been referenced in many medicinal and magical circles since the middle ages. Its first appearance in a botanical tome was in Jerome Bock's "History of Plants" in 1532. Its scientific name Alchemilla is a derivative of the Arab work Alkemelych, or alchemy, so called for the plant's magical healing potency. European herbalists considered Lady's Mantle one of the best herbs for encouraging healing of the skin and for herbal first aid.* It was also used to address menstrual concerns and encourage healthy menstrual flow, particularly in cases of excess.*

Folklore concerning Lady's Mantle seems to focus on the dew that is gathered on the leaves at the center of its furrowed leaves, which is said to be a key ingredient in several alchemical formulas. The dew was also said to be collected and used as a beauty lotion. Lady's Mantle was first associated with the worship of the Earth Mother, but as Christianity spread, and like many pagan symbols before it, it was absorbed and eventually became associated with the Virgin Mary. Although its leaves bear a striking resemblance to cilantro, lady's mantle is in the rose family.

Constituents of note: Tannins and flavonoids, chiefly quercetin
