Oh hey! It's been a minute - . Our family is staying in a sweet home by the river, and it's so good to have everyone together. A dear friend is shipping orders from the shop, but so many items are out of stock I decided to spend my birthday back in CA creating products😄 Look for your favorites back on the website soon! . As a Happy Birthday bonus, I'll be shipping out a gift with every order placed by April 18th (my birthday!)
I'm back!! New restocks in the shop and a blog post :) . On Running a Magical Business - This is not a class from Hogwarts . I would consider magic an integral part of what I do – not in the wand-waving, hocus pocus sense – but in regards to accessing the unseen sparks of this world. . Link in bio to read the entire post. (if you made it this far - there's a juicy bit at the end about new products - let me know what you think!)
A BIG thank you to Organic Alcohol Company for the lovely customer spotlight on Plum Brilliance!! I am honored to have made it into their November newsletter. . It is a privilege to be able to support this incredible business. Previously Alchemical Solutions, Organic Alcohol offers the highest quality spirits. . I carefully select potent plant material for all my products and I require equally high-quality alcohol for extraction! . Link in bio to read the blurb :)
Beloved comfrey, mender of wounds. A native of Europe and Asia, comfrey has historically been a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and wound healer. Comfrey is considered a natural anti-aging powerhouse as it contains both allantoin and rosmarinic acid. Allantoin is wonderful for giving skin a plump, glowing look. It can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while rosmarinic acid provides pain relief and reduces redness from inflammation.
Let's talk demulcents... Demulcent herbs are rich in a hertero-polysachharide called mucilage. Gross name, cool actions - mucilage absorbs water to form a soothing gel that moistens, cools, and protects. Used internally, they soothe and protect irritated and inflamed tissue; when used topically, they are rich emollients - providing moisture and protection to the skin. Curious which products I craft feature demulcent plants? I've compiled a collection of the best summer soothers.
