April harvesting

Monday, April 28th, 2008

April is always exciting – so far this year we’ve harvested Nettles, Cleavers and Comfrey. The Nettles and Cleavers have both been made into tinctures, whilst Comfrey has been infused in cold pressed organic sunflower oil. Once pressed this produces a beautiful rich dark green oil that goes to form the base for many types of medicine. The first creation from the oil has been a sprain ointment – in this comfrey oil is mixed with beeswax, arnica and wintergreen oil to make a potent muscle rub, joint rub or sprain ointment.
