An artisanal Apothecary of blissful blends, herbal helpers, & sumptuous salves, inspired by organic gardening, made in love & light in sacred space!
Combining nearly 25 years of independent study in essential oils & herbs, I've blended my skills & passions to create a line of locally-made, all natural, minimally processed products that I use in my bodywork sessions & sell directly to my clients & students.
Introducing my line of custom creations, inspired by the organic herb garden at my rural retreat called Gothic Gables.
Made following the lunar cycles, special astrological dates & feast days, these healing helpers are handmade in artisanal, small batches with love & light, intention & integrity in the manner of an old-timey apothecary, with a side of kitchen witchery.
Prices vary depending on harvest & supply shipping.
Available in office only, in 4 ounce jars that run $15-20
and 1 ounce tins that run $5-8.
Please note: All balms include local beeswax & first-press jojoba oil, plus specific herbs.
Arnica is traditionally used for bruises, and alleviating muscle & joint aches & pains. It can also be used for sprains/strains and even arthritis. Virtually scentless, without the Mediterranean scent of Muscle Magick, you can get many of the same benefits for when you want to be scent neutral.
Calendula has been prized for ages for its incredible healing properties for all manner of skin problems, irritations, & even wrinkles. It has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent, antifungal, anti-viral, immunostimulant properties and is perfect for treating minor cuts, scrapes, dry skin, wrinkles, rashes, etc. It also reduces scarring & stretch marks by stimulating collagen production. I’ve already had clients tell me it has made dramatic improvements & disappearances of seborrheic dermatitis, actinic keratosis, acne, old scars, & even is a great lubricant for stretching gauged piercings! People are calling this my Magickal Miracle Salve! Available once a year & quantities are very limited: Brighid’s Blend, made at Imbolc. Some versions may also contain Chamomile.
Lavender is historically used for all manner of skin conditions, including burns & insect bites/repellant, as well as to promote peace & calming. Lavender has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-microbial, stress-relieving, calming properties & is great for conditions like insomnia, anxiety, migraines/headaches, nausea, pain, & even dementia. I have several different kinds of lavender (like Hidcote Giant, French Lavender, Spanish Lavender, & White Lavender) at Gothic Gables. There are very limited editions of these available in the summer.
Luscious Lemon Balm
Lemon Balm, or Melissa officianalis, is traditionally known as, well, a balm and was used by the Greeks 2000 years ago! It was the herb of the Goddess Diana and its name “Melissa” means bee, so it is loved by bees. This lemon balm grows organically & wildly in several places at Gothic Gables and is available once a year in the summer months. Historical uses include: wound dressings, skin eruptions, moisturizer, palpitation, high blood pressure, etc. Lemon Balm is antibacterial and has a high-anti-oxidant level and has recently been shown to have a positive influence on hyperthyroidism & Grave’s Disease.
Oregano is mostly known as a cooking flavor, but it has traditionally been used by herbalists for its anti-oxidant & anti-microbial properties for skin, respiratory, & gastro-intestinal issues. It is also anti-inflammatory & has been said to ease muscle aches & pains as well as joint pain such as arthritis. Also includes Arnica, Rosemary, & Thyme for pain-relieving & bruise-healing properties. Truly magickal!
