There is a dying lost art from many traditional cultures that effectively used steam inhalation, vaginal steams, and herbal bath soaks as an effective way to absorb therapeutic herbal remedies. Lets bring back that lost knowledge, and incorporate aromatherapy to absorb medicinal herbs through the largest organ of your body -your skin- and the lungs, which have the largest surface area of your body for absorbing delicate herbal vapors. Topical absorption through the skin by soaking in medicinal teas, or inhalation to absorb through the lungs also means herbs that may be too bitter tasting to drink can still be therapeutically absorbed and systemically distributed throughout the body. The herbal medicine can be absorbed transdermally through topical teas (herbal baths) or in a more concentrated medicinal form of oils.
Our herbal oils are administered onto the skin to be absorbed into the body to attain systemic (throughout the body) distribution. Our oils are not essential oils (steam distilled), but instead are medicinal herbs that have fat soluble medicinal constituents, meaning the healing and therapeutic components are easily extracted into oils. The skin is the largest organ of the body and much can be absorbed topically, particularly fat soluble extracts. To illustrate, think of topical medications (nitroglycerin, hormone replacement, patches), magnesium, facial serums, creams, gels, lotions, or ointments. Our medicinal herbs have been hand picked, and extracted deeply into high quality, nourishing oils. Use them as medicine - massage them into yourself or loved ones as treatment that includes therapeutic touch and love to heal and nourish. Essential oils are often too harsh to use on delicate or sensitive skin; medicinal herbs extracted into oils for massage are gentler on the skin and safe for sensitive or delicate skin. Topical application also means herbs that may be too bitter tasting to drink can still be therapeutically absorbed transdermally, daily in our body scrubs.
Medicinal topical tea - Topical tea, or herbal bath soaks, with nervines and adaptogens for deeply healing the body and mind, as well as mild hormone balancing. Healing medicinal herbs easily absorb topically for areas of need with systemic distribution throughout the body. 1 cup of herb makes 1 quart of body tea, the strained herbs are perfect for poultices. Poultices are herbs mashed and applied topically directly onto the skin, optionally with heat (hot water bottle or heating pad). The herbs can be left in place hours or overnight after being wrapped in a bandage (fresh herbs) or cling wrap (wet herbs after infusing or steaming briefly), great for stronger application to areas of need. Stronger than fomentations (herbal infusions) because the raw tea is applied topically. Organic muslin bag included. Like a motherly hug in a tub your nervous system, hormones, and mind.
to use: fill cotton bag with 1 cup herbs to a bathtub of water. Tie the bag shut, hang from faucet to infuse medicinal essences into water flowing through the herbs, or infuse bag directly into bathwater. Alternatively, boil 1 quart of water, add 1 cup herbs. Turn off heat, cover tightly. Steep 20 minutes or more. Strain and pour the herbal infusion directly into bath water. Then enjoy your parasympathetic relaxation response.
medicinal bath salts - medicinal topical tea transitions blend loose herb with magnesium salts which improves mood, sleep, restless legs, cramps, pain, heals skin issues, and is most easily and rapidly absorbed transdermally. Utilize your relaxation response (which studies conclusively find releases toxins and stress) in your self care ritual and enjoy soaking in balancing medicinal herbs while nourishing and healing your mind and body. Enjoy a good motherly hug in a tub for your nervous system, hormones, and mind. Organic muslin bag included.

Studies have confirmed touch reduces anxiety, depression, insomnia, cortisol levels, while releasing oxytocin (the hormone of love). So enjoy your daily motherly hug in a scrub, while you become more resilient to changes and flow through transitions with ease.
