It’s allergy season and many folx are suffering from hay fever, itchy watery eyes, stuffy nose, sinus pressure and so on… My favorite relief for allergies is herbal, the Sonoran desert plant Brittlebush works very well to alleviate hay fever, runny nose and itchy eyes without making one drowsy. I prefer it in tincture form but it also works well as a tea. Nettles in tea or tincture form is also extremely helpful for allergy sufferers, I combine it with Brittlebush in my allergy relief tea blend. Yerba Mansa, also known as Lizard’s tail supports folx whose allergies cause sinus pain and pressure, Yerba Mansa is helpful for chronic and acute sinusitis. I recommend using a small amount {less than a tsp a day} of local raw honey, in many cases it lessens the severity of pollen allergies.. Happy Spring!

Super wound salve is on sale!

Chaparral and Penstemon combine to make an excellent salve that can help heal hard to heal wounds, this salve works well for eczema, psoriasis, and most skin rashes, ( it works really great for diaper rashes) I used the salve with an elder client who was suffering from weepy leg syndrome, just a few days of elevating the legs and using the salve worked miracles! The salve also has anti-wrinkle qualities if you apply it to the face before bed, and can help with sun damaged skin… Penstemon only blooms in the spring ( chaparral can be collected all year) So when I make my spring batch it is all I have until next year, I have some 4 ounce sizes left they’re on sale for $40 in November.
