Remedies


Evan's Garden
An herbal apothacary of oils, salves, clenses and nutrients made from the best organic ingredients, hand made in small batches. Care is taken to preserve the aliveness of the ingredients. "In every case where I am able to locate superior ingredients I buy those. This refers to: plants, oils, essential oils, herbs, etc., that were organically grown or biodynamically grown (where the soil is very rich with nutrients and the organisms like worms that ought to be there in it and many old, proven farming techniques are employed). I look for oils that are unrefined, cold-pressed and not heated (over about 105°). I also look into the issue of picked when ripe."

Beeswork
Herbal salve and healing bee balms. "We think we have the best, high quality ingredients available (many are certified organic) and strive to bring them fresh to you."
