$3.49

Shipping to United States: $3.95


This listing is for a bagged herbal blend (apothecary glass jars available for 1.5 oz- Hexagonal glass jar and 2oz- round glass jar.)
It will ship in a water resistant bag for easy storage and traveling. This is perfect for a bug out bag, first aid kit, camping, shtf doomsday preppers, zombie apocalypse and more.

This dried blend will last a very long time. Over years, dried herbs begin to loose potency, but will never "go bad."

All herbs in this blend are organic and wildcrafted/foraged with the exception of the yarrow that is harvested off the mountain and I personally grow in my home medicinal garden. Everything is gathered by hand in small batches, sustainably sourced, and dried in my drying room in either loose bundles or on drying screens/racks.

To use, add water and macerate using a mortar and pestle then apply topically in a thick paste. Wrap with clean/sterile cloth if needed to ensure it stays in place. Alternatively, in the field, you can chew it to moisten and macerate.

A poultice, also called a cataplasm, is a paste made of herbs, plants, and other substances with healing properties. The paste is applied to the body to relieve inflammation and promote healing. A clean piece of cloth can be applied above this paste to help hold it in place.

This popular remedy has been used for centuries to treat inflammation, insect bites, and more. You can choose different herbs to tailor it to your needs.
Compresses and poultices are excellent remedies to be used in acute (sudden onset) illness situations because they often provide quick relief from symptoms.

The poultice blend I have prepared is perfect for field usage in cases of strains, sprains, bruising, and the like.

Plantain is a commom weed that has great drawing power. Plantain contains the well-documented cell proliferant known as allantoin, and can promote rapid regeneration of healthy skin when used to treat abrasions, wounds, and ulcerations. Plantain poultice is also perfect for use on bug bites and bee stings. 

Comfrey roots and leaves have great healing properties especially where bones and ligaments are involved. A poultice made out of comfrey is perfect for any aches, pains, sprains, or bruises. Comfrey is probably the most commonly used plant for poulticing, proving triply effective because it contains skin-soothing mucilage, helps dissolve and remove dead tissue, and speeds healthy reparation. Like plantain, comfrey contains allantoin. Comfrey poultices are often employed to speed the healing of pulled muscles and ligaments, bruises, broken bones (after they’ve been set by a doctor), bed sores, burns, ulcerations, infections, smashed fingers, and other traumatic injuries.

Arnica provides anti-inflammatory properties and is an excellent reducer of pain. It is a wonderful herb to have on hand for minor bumps, bruises, aches and pains.

Yarrow is amphoteric (both clotting/staunching bloodflow and moving blood simultaneously), and at the cellular level it breaks up stagnation and supports the creation of new healthy cells (aka: angiogenesis), thus expediting the healing process. Yarrow possesses excellent wound healing gifts. Yarrow is both an anti-inflammatory as well as being antimicrobial and pain reducing. Yarrow also contains silica, which will help in repairing damaged tissue. The anti-oxidant and cytoprotective properties of yarrow leaves and flowers may also play a role in wound healing. In fact, it's alternatively known as soldiers herb for its use in field medicine.

*This is not intended for internal use. Both comfrey and arnica should never be consumed unless under the direct supervision and advice of a dr.
We recommend avoiding comfrey for treating open wounds. Comfrey is such an excellent healing agent that it can trap bacteria inside a wound by healing too quickly.
It’s also important to note that arnica should never be used on broken skin.
** Again not for internal use. Do not eat. Keep away from children and animals. May stain fabrics.
***This blend is a wonderful natural remedy but it is not a replacement for medical care when needed. Consult a doctor before using if you have any health conditions or concerns. Test in a small area first and discontinue if a reaction occurs. For the people in the back External use only! Outcomes cannot be guaranteed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! We do custom orders. Message me via etsy to discuss the details and work up a quote.

What's the quality of ingredients utilized?

We use 100% from Nature Ingredients. The majority of our herbs are organic and ethically wildcrafted and foraged locally. The rest are typically garden grown in our medicinal garden. We do outsource when needed and always choose quality, certified organic sources. We try to utilize our local small business owners but do have several things that are shipped from non local small family farms.

What's the lowdown on the butters?

We use Fair Trade, Raw and Organic Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. We use unrefined butters as this keeps all the vitamins, minerals and other natural properties of the butters intact. Our cocoa butter is non deodorized as the process of deodorizing (removing the naturally occurring soft cocoa scent) will destroy the antioxidants that naturally occur in the butter.

Where's the chemicals?

Free from chemicals! Well, sort of. Technically, Chemicals make up all matter. That means stating that we use no chemicals would be a lie as the scientific definition of chemical means that most everything (other than "energy" itself) IS a chemical. But we know what you mean and we ARE Free from Parabens, Pesticides, Petroleum, Phthalates, Sulfates, SLS, Artificial Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, and all the other yucky stuff.

Do you do animal testing?

My cockatoo wants nothing to do with my herbal goodness so all animals are safe. We only test on friends and family!

Any allergens?

Of course. There's a wide range of allergies and sensitivities out there and it's possible to be allergic to any ingredient used as well as cross allergies. Some of the butters and oils used can trigger nut allergies. We recommend messaging us directly for more info prior to buying if you're aware of any major allergens. Allergies can start at any stage and age so if an unsuspected allergy occurs when using a product, discontinue use immediately and consult your doctor.

How's it made?

Everything is handmade to order in small batches using fair trade, organic, raw and wildcrafted ingredients whenever possible. This ensures your batch is fresh and the highest quality. We put our heart and soul into our products and trust that the plants will offer their healing to all that they touch.

Smoke free and pet friendly?

Your products are artisan made and handcrafted in an earth conscious, plant loving, cruelty free, organic, always made with love and intention home. We are a smoke free "facility" and have one feathered friend; a cockatoo named Cotton. He's a 35 year old Goffin's cockatoo, a rescue, and recently lost his life mate to a tumor. He lives his best life upstairs, enjoys children's songs, fresh fruits and veggies, and Walker Texas ranger.

HELP! I checked out with the wrong address, what now?

Contact us as soon as possible with your correct shipping address. Make sure you include the correct name your order was placed under and your order number which can be found on your purchase invoice. This makes sure we locate your order in the system quickly!

After alerting us to the situation and providing the corrected information, please update your profile info to reflect your current address.

We ARE NOT responsible for orders that are sent to the incorrect address due to customer error. We will not be responsible for shipping orders a second time due to issues with the submitted address, issues with the recipients receptacle (overfull, missing, etc), or any other issues out of our hands. Thank you

Uh oh! I'VE MOVED and my package was delivered to my old address. What can we do?

Please ensure that your profile is updated with your new address prior to placing any purchase orders. Additionally, make sure you go online or in person to the USPS and fill out a mail forwarding request. Once a shipping label has been created and a package is in the mail, we no longer have access to it.
If a package is returned to us, it will require postage to be purchased again in order to be shipped a second time. We ask that you contact us with your new address and update all your information. It will be your responsibility to purchase new postage and a processing fee may be required.

Do you ship internationally?

We are suspending overseas shipments during the pandemic. Thank you for understanding.
Yes! However please understand that you are responsible for being aware of and paying your import taxes at time of pick up if your country requires them. We will not be responsible for refunding any orders or shipping fees due to complications surrounding this issue.

Your ingredient list is incomplete/ missing on your online listings

Unfortunately, I am bombarded constantly by other shops, herbalists, and companies for my personal and family recipes. It is impossible for me to know who is genuinely just curious and who intends to steal and recreate my offerings. Due to the fact that this has happened to me with direct competitors, I do not share my ingredient for nonallergic or personal aversion specific requests.
However, if you are a budding herbal ally and are interested in knowledge, I am tickled pink to be part of your learning process!

MY ORDER WAS LOST IN THE MAIL OR STOLEN OUT OF MY MAILBOX! NOW WHAT?

Please understand that once your order ships we are no longer in control of what happens to your items.
If an item was lost in the mail and you paid for priority shipping we will file a claim, as soon as the claim is accepted we will issue a full refund. Please note if a package is marked as delivered we can not file a claim.
If an item was lost in the mail and you selected ground shipping at checkout we can not file a claim. At this point in time we will submit a mail recovery request with the USPS.
If a package is marked delivered via tracking but is not in your mailbox, we are not responsible for contacting usps, please check with your neighbors, check with your delivery person, & check with your post office to see if they have it. 

I would like to return this for a full refund!

Due to the nature of our products, we do not take returns or refunds. There are very special circumstances under which we may choose to refund an item or order.
Sending an unapproved return will not result in store credit or a refund and the returned item may be disposed of on your behalf.

My Salve/Balm melted in the mail!

During the summer, warm months, or warm weather:
Please remove your balms from the mailbox or porch as soon as they are delivered. We can not control shipping times or the weather (although we wish we could) and can not refund, replace or accept returns of melted balms. If your balms melt, using a handheld mixer can be useful, and just place it in a cool, dark location, or to quickly reset them, pop them in the fridge for 5-15 minutes. The balm quality should not be affected. Also, the balms may whiten in cooler temps; just give a stir! This will also not affect the quality. Thank you for your understanding.

If I drink the psychic tea will I become psychic? How do the "magic teas" work? What results can I expect?

There's no strong psychotropic. It's more of a gentle assist in opening the third eye, Sahasrara, and Agnya. I'm an herbalist so I choose to work with a combination of metaphysical attributes and ayurvedic. Some herbs in the psychic blend have very mild sedative properties, mostly to aid in relaxing and accessing the energies. I like to say "they're herbs, not magic." These blends offered are to simply help you access and expand your own magical intent. They have historical, traditional, and mythological ties to specific powers, but wouldn't necessarily invoke powers you do not have or haven't yet cultivated. These tea blends are lovely mild alternatives of safe herbs to open the gateway to accessing what you desire.

My cauldron has wax residue on it! What's the deal?

Cast iron products are traditionally made by casting melted iron ore into a mold.
Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. The wax is then melted off. Some wax residue may remain, especially in crevices and design features. To remove any remaining wax, you can gently scrape it away with a tool or your fingernail. Clean with a damp cloth and dry well to prevent any rusting.
