We harvest these herbs ourselves by hand, chop them by hand, and dry them out of the sun. Herbs are sustainably wildcrafted, harvested on the private property of friends, or grown in our own organic garden. These are the herbs that we use ourselves to make healing teas, tinctures, salves, and poultices.

We gather this precious herb by hand, dry and chop it, and package it by hand with care and love, as needed. We use Chaparral tea as a winter tonic, for supporting our immune system, and for all sorts of maladies, including colds and flu. For a taste-enhancing companion, consider adding the "sweet" herb Stevia, or Cinnamon. (1 oz., 8 oz., or 16 oz.)

Our Spider Bite Remedy is the powdered Desert Plantain plant. We reconstitute the powder with water to the consistency of cookie dough and apply it as a poultice to soothe the pain and reduce swelling. We have found it to work well for a variety of spider bites, especially the dreaded brown recluse. Includes instructions for use. (.5 oz.)
We like to use Yarrow for sore throats, colds, and flu where the mucus membranes are sore and inflamed. We gather this herb locally. (1 oz., 8 oz., or 16 oz.)
