At Shanti Omstead’s Apothecary, we offer a variety of organic herbal infusions such as tinctures, roll-ons, and balms. We grow all our own medicinal herbs on-site and extract healing qualities to infuse into skincare products, as well as culinary use for spices and teas.
The skin is the largest organ in our body, and can easily absorb healing qualities from plants. You can apply various herbal salves to heal wounds, rashes, and other skin irritations. Or use to soften your feet, hands and other areas on your body.
We do not have the ability for on-line orders at this time, however you’re welcome to visit and purchase our products on-site.
Calendula is a highly versatile medicinal plant, and has been used for centuries (internally and topically) to heal wounds, burns, and rashes. The sunshiny flowers are a traditional remedy for supporting the immune system and lifting the spirits. The edible ray florets of the flower heads are bursting with antioxidant compounds. We use calendula in many of our herbal healing products, as it continues to grow abundantly here on the farm.
Some of the other herbs we grow are mint, sage, basil, horseradish, ginger, turmeric, salvia, mallow, etc.
