from the farm...
Throughout the season, you can find us harvesting rose hips, grape blossoms, calendula, chamomile and viola plants. From each of these harvests, we leave the petals, flowers and rose hips to infuse for several months in small batches in carrier oils. During this process of infusion, an exceptionally enriched oil is created.
We infuse the grape blossoms into organic coconut oil to create an incredibly fragrant moisturizing and nourishing oil.
Our viola-calendula-chamomile infused sweet almond oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties which promote healing.
We also infuse our rose hips - very rich in Vitamin C - into sweet almond oil for their rejuvenating qualities.
In the summer, we are busy distilling over 10 different aromatic herbs and plants for their essential oils and hydrosols.
Our 'English' and 'Peter Pan' Lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Our Helichrysum essential oil acts as an anti-oxidant.
