Until 31st January.

Healing Powerhouse – Comfrey

Comfrey is a plant we widely use in our garden and household, from nourishing fertiliser for plants to dressing bandages for wounds and inflammation. It really works wonders!

We started with a few root cuttings a few years ago and we now have plants all around our garden fence in an effort to keep the gum roots away (still to be proven). Both the root and the leaves are useful, we collect the leaves in summer and roots late in autumn. Leaves are best harvested right when the plant gets to the flowering stage.

As for its skin-loving properties, comfrey is vulnerary, which means it helps with closing and healing the wounds. It is also called ‘knitbone’ due to its ability to stitch the bone tissue, so it’s also helpful in fractures and sprains.

Comfrey is also great for inflammation – applied as an ointment or fresh leaves poultice, it reduces the swelling and stiffness as well as the appearance of bruises.

Plenty of reasons for me to dry comfrey and make it into a herbal infused oil which I use in our wonderfully scented healing balm.

I totally love comfrey! I believe it is one of the best healing plants around and it shouldn’t miss from anyone’s garden. At least for its beautiful bluebells-like flowers. Have a closer look at their exquisite growing pattern.

Comfrey is easy to grow, I should however add that it is very hard to get rid of. When established, even the tiniest bit of root will shoot back. But once you find out about all its wonderful uses, this is not a drawback any more.

We are two

We are two - Thank you!November is our anniversary month, which means joy, gratefulness, hope, lessons remembering and a bit of dreaming, all in a big cup of love. We count all the highs and lows of a full year and we are thankful to be going forward on this journey. We think on how we can do things better and how we can make people happier.

We are two now and we feel even more responsibility, ¬†both towards our customers and our endeavours. This isn’t just a dream or a passing moment, we are here to stay and keep providing goodness to everyone involved. It is a tougher journey than we initially thought, but we have enjoyed every moment and every lesson we learned. It’s so¬†engrained in our lives now, we can’t think of other ways to live meaningfully. It made us more humble, more sensible, better anchored, altogether more resilient. And hopefully better humans. ????

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has been with us, you’ve made our lives better.

Thank you, Belinda

This time last year I was taking my passion out to the world and had no idea how this would go. I had the chance to connect and reconnect with lovely people and got an amazing response. It’s been a year of big and small learnings, inspiring¬†discoveries and pure delight every time you showed enjoyment and excitement¬†with my creations.
Thank you everyone for your wonderful support and appreciation of my natural remedies!!! I couldn’t have done it without you.

Together, you and me, we are 1 today!

So time to celebrate: we have a special ‘One’ to share with you – 10% discount on everything, including all already discounted packs. This week only (offer ends Sunday 29 November).

With love & care, Stefania

I skin care. Do you skin care?

skinfood

We all care about something – be it the family, the environment, the job that makes us happy, the free access to education, the peace in the middle east (or west, looking from Australia) or what we put on the table, where it comes from, how natural and tasty it is, etc… We care. And we also care a lot about how we look or, simply put, we skin care. Who doesn’t want to always look young, glowing, healthy, radiant?!…
I skin care because what I put on my skin goes straight into the bloodstream. And I’ve learned that what I¬†put in my¬†body is what I get from my¬†body.

So I put in nourishing foods like calendula, green tea, cocoa, coffee, sage, coconut, macadamia, aloe vera, avocado, lemon. And many other yummy skin foods. Practically most of the foods I eat can go onto my skin too. They truly work their magic for a radiant skin. They are amazingly effective!

Do you skin care? What’s your favourite skin food?
