Good Harvest!

Nestled in the protected Casitas Pass Valley near Santa Barbara, our Lavender fields grow in the bright sunshine while cooled by ocean breezes. This combination of hot sun and cool air produces a very fragrant flower on a vigorous healthy plant. Our plants are grown without chemicals and our products are made by hand here on our farm.

We make things the way you would make them for yourself if you had time.

"I grow Lavender because I love the fragrance and all the wonderful aspects of it's therapeutic properties - calming but energizing, antiseptic, pain relieving especially of bug bites, and it's ability to 'comfort the braine'." Sandy Messori

 

Lavender for Life

Lavender can help relieve Insomnia, Pain, Depression

The three most common complaints that general practioner Doctors receive from their patients are:

1. Insomnia.  Lavender can help most people settle down for a good night's rest; apply a drop on your pillow, in a bedtime diffuser or try a drop between your toes.  It seems to work by "clearing the mind" of all of those disturbing thoughts that are  keeping you awake.

2. Pain.  Lavender can relieve pain of inflammation such as muscle strain or Arthritis with massage in a warm carrier oil (60 drops in a 4 ounce container of oil).  Lavender can lessen the pain and itch of an insect bite or sting of a bee/wasp and it can limit the swelling, also.

3. Depression.  Lavender is an established mood lifter, used in meditation and other relaxation and de-stressing exercises.  It seems to work by "clearing the mind" of those thoughts that are causing you pain or sadness or stress.   

 

Lavender Hues excerpts from An Herb for all Seasons, by Linda Boston

Fields aglow in a lavender mist are beginning to appear in areas of the western United States most conducive to it's growth - that is, Mediterranean climates with warm summers and cool dry winters.

Lavender is by no means new to the world markets. It is cultivated commercially in France, England, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, Tanganyika, Turkey, Yugoslavia, Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. Lavender grows wild in the south of France, Italy Corsica, and Yugoslavia. France is the largest grower with annual production varying from about fifty metric tons per year which is far from sufficient for its own needs, and even the Russian production does not cover local consumption

The quintessential lavender romance is found in the South of France, in Provence, where the fragrance of lavender is synonymous with summer. In Provence, Lavender first blooms in June and is gathered in July or August. Fresh bouquets fill the markets; flower festivals and craft fairs are held in village streets in the perfume laden air. The cultivated Lavender fields amidst the olive groves and vineyards were a source of inspiration for the nineteenth century French Impressionist artists.

The United States is somewhat of a newcomer to the commercial production of Lavender. Sequim Washington was proclaimed the Lavender capital of the U.S., with its favorable geographic location, protected by the Olympic Mountains, that gives it a Mediterranean climate. But in the last few years, Lavender has caught on in California. In the wine regions such as Napa and Sonoma in northern California, the Santa Ynez Valley (and now in the Ojai Valley) to the south, some select locations offer a Provencal appearance with vineyards, olive groves, and fields of purple lavender. This new-found proliferation in areas where vineyard planting has become almost prosaic give us evidence that there must be demand for this herb and the products of its harvest.

Lavender is a member of the Lamiaceae family, which also includes sage, thyme, savory and oregano. An evergreen shrub, two to four feet in height, lavender blooms with deep purple, violet, pink and white blossoms that grow in a tight swirl around the stalk. The herb has a clean fresh soothing fragrance with woody and camphoric overtones. When harvested, the blossoms drop off leaving the bluish lavender buds that cluster tightly against the stem. The bud-covered stems bunched together make a bouquet that is lovely by itself or as an accent to other floral arrangements. A sprig of Lavender at every place setting is a trendy signature of summer entertaining (or wedding dinners). The bud-covered stems can also be dried; (some) retain their purple color and can be used long term. The buds alone make excellent potpourri and sachets, and can also be brewed in teas. Lavender is edible. Yet most in demand is the oil. Lavender (flower stems) are steam distilled to product the Essential Oil of Lavender, which is the primary ingredient in a wide array of products.

Lavender Oil is the most dominant oil in perfumes. It can also be used for skin conditioners, body lotions, bath soaps, shampoos, candles, deodorizers, laundry soaps and household cleansers. A wide array of far-reaching claims about the benefits of lavender include that it reduces dandruff when used in shampoos, calms and soothes the skin and balances oil production, helps heal blemishes and stimulate the circulation to the skin, reduces acne and eczema, heals burns and sunburn, and alleviate the effects of bee stings (and insect bites). It is known to have mild antiseptic and antibiotic properties that can kill bacteria. Lavender is a natural insect repellent for fleas and flies. Some claim that Lavender can suppress sprouting in potatoes, and that the fragrance of Lavender is calming to horses (and other animals). Some equestrians spray Lavender scented water directly on their horses to obtain this calming and balancing effect.

Essential oil of lavender is even used as flavoring for various foods, including beverages, ice-cream, candy, baked goods and chewing gum. Lavender honey is gathered from bees that feed on blooming Lavender.

Some of the 'medicinal' benefits of lavender are that it calms the nerves, balances emotions, prevents insomnia and alleviates fear and irritability and stress. It is thought that it clears the thinking and strengthens the nervous system and that it benefits those who suffer from hyperglycemia, hypertension, indigestion, arteriosclerosis, digestive complaints, kidney stones, fragile capillaries, anemia and heartburn. It is also effective in reducing caffeine-induced hyper-activity, in relieving headaches, in promoting deeper and longer sleep and in alleviating motion sickness. Such medicinal uses of Lavender have been popularized by a healing technique known as Aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy is a term for the practice of using essential oils taken from plants to bring healing and balance to the body. In fact, the term was coined in 1928 by the French chemist, Gattefosse, after he accidentally discovered that the use of oil of Lavender healed a severe burn on his hand without scarring. In Aromatherapy the aroma itself does not bring the cure, but rather it serves to stir cell-level memories in the body that can bring about greater balance and well-being. The theory is that olfactory cilia transmit to the brain's limbic cortex, which regulates the secretion of pituitary hormones. Some aromatherapists claim that inhaling the essential oil of lavender or allowing it to be absorbed through the skin causes serotonin to be released, producing a calming influence.

Most lavenders are native to the Mediterranean countries. Lavender was perhaps first cultivated in Persia. The early Egyptians believed that fragrances were emanations from deities and they wrapped their dead in Lavender-dipped shrouds. There are theories held by some Egyptologists that the Temple of Luxor reflects the anatomical structure of the nasal cavity, with secret sanctuary chambers representing the olfactory, pineal and pituitary glands in the human head.

The Ancient Greeks used Lavender to help alleviate insomnia, insanity and aching backs. The Greek naturalist, Dioscoride, praised the medicinal attributes of Lavender in the first century A.D. Lavender is referred to in the Bible by the name of 'spikenard'. In John, Chapter 12, Mary is said to have anointed the feet of Jesus with the "'very costly" ointment of spikenard. In further discussion of selling the ointment, Jesus states that the ointment was not to be sold but was to be kept for the day of his burying. The Romans used lavender in soaps and carried it with them throughout the Roman Empire for bathing purposes. The name Lavender was coined during the Middle ages and derives from the Latin verb lavare, which means, "to wash." In Medieval and Renaissance Europe, the washing women were known as "lavenders." They used Lavender to scent drawers and they dried the laundry on Lavender bushes. Lavender was also used as a plague remedy. In the nineteenth century, Queen Victoria took an interest in Lavender and English Lavender became popular. The Victorians used Lavender for gardens and were the first to bring the plant inside. During World War I, Lavender moved to the front lines and was used as an antiseptic. Lavender was discovered to be good for skin wounds and burns, a remedy for bug bites and a general panacea to help the skin heal more quickly.

Clearly, the recent interest in Lavender represents a rebirth of what was once the rage! Lavender can be planted anywhere in rock and flower gardens as an annual plant. In appropriate climates, it is a long lived perennial with a typical productive life of about ten years, although plants have been known to live twenty years. There are a number of varieties of lavender and therefore there is some variety in the growing conditions required. All varieties have in common the need for lots of sun and well-drained soil that is slightly alkaline. Lavender does not require a lot of water except in the early stages. The plant does not like to have "wet feet."

Cultivated lavender is most often planted as cuttings from the desired mother plant to ensure the correct variety. Making a selection of the species of Lavender from the many varieties is based on climate and soil conditions of the growing location and on intended use of the harvest. Lavenders vary in color, fragrance, taste, and size. There are some Lavenders that won't tolerate harsh winters and some that will, some Lavenders that sprawl more than others, some that are easier to harvest and some that bloom earlier.

Within the various species of lavender there are 'cultivars', which are variations of the same species. When growing for commercial purposes, one must first select the desired species, but it is also essential that the correct cultivars are planted. One of the most common cultivars is a 'lavandin' known as Lavender 'Grosso.' This variety has gorgeous color, a wonderful scent and an abundance of oil.

There are numbers of books available on the subject of growing lavender and selection of varieties. The best way to learn the nuances of the different varieties is to grow them yourself or visit someone who does. Experience the lavender!

Aromatherapists for thousands of years have turned to Lavender for the beautiful fragrance. Its use as a perfume began with Phoenicians and Egyptians and continues to this day all over the world. Herbalists now prescribe the essential oil extracted from the flowering stalks for all kinds of skin problems, wounds, bruises, insect bites, muscular aches, head pains( rub a few drops on the temples), respiratory problems (such as asthma, bronchitis and laryngitis - gargle), nausea, cramps, stroke, depression, grief, PMS, shock, high blood pressure, insomnia, migraine, sciatica, deodorant, and moth repellant.

We grow our lavender  ORGANICALLY, harvest manually, distill sensitively - long, slow, low pressure, low temperature

We have several distillations of our Lavender oil as follows:

 Fine Lavender Lavandula angustifolia ' Rivendell Estate Blend' 10 different varieties of our organically grown Lavandula angustifolia  distilled together: High sweet  notes, good for perfumery, emotional therapy and stress, settling down for meditation or sleep      2.5 ml $5.00   10 ml 10.00,    30 ml $ 25.00    4 oz $59.00,   16 oz $190

Fine Lavender Lavandula angustifolia 'Alba' White Lavender  has a sweet heady first note with just a hint of butterscotch and a little snippet of camphor; excellent for perfumery and in aromatherapy as a calming sedative, pain relief, antiseptic, headache relief, heart tonic (physically and mentally), depression, hysteria and panic, skin problems:  10 ml  $19.00,     30 ml $49.00

Lavandin, Lavandula intermedia 'Grosso' Used in aromatherapy for respiratory ailments, muscle pain, and circulatory distress; my oil tested out with a high level of linalool and linalyl acetate, the "high" notes so prized by aromatherapists for sedative and pain relief qualities.           Cold & flu prevention: Lavandula intermedia 'Grosso' properties. Michael Scholes, Lab of Flowers, wrote me that he was teaching a class in NYC when he felt himself coming down with flu. He took a long hot bath with my Lavandin and then went to bed and rubbed some on his chest. He woke the next morning without symptoms!  Debbie Freund, RN, teaches nurses how to use this oil to prevent infection and stimulate their immune system.   This  essential oil may help avoid and treat virus infections             2.5 ml $3,    10 ml $7.00,   30 ml $18.00,   4 oz $48,    8 oz $86,    16 oz $152

NOW AVAILABLE!  Lavender/Immortelle The idea for this oil came from a suggestion by John Steele to do a co-distillation of Helichrysum italicum and Lavender. We harvest our beautiful blue Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote' which produces an oil with a lovely sweet essence. Then we add to the same still  some of our first pick of the golden flowered Helichrysum italicum.   Distilling both herbs in the same still produces an oil with a lovely sexy lavender essence and an underground warm toasty honey after-note from the Heli.   John Steele describes this as a molecularly melded magical oil with a synergy of the healing properties of Helichrysum and the soothing properties of Lavender.     2.5ml $6     10 ml $22.00,    30 ml $52.00

Lovely hydrosols (AKA:  Hydrolat, flower water) also available from all of the lavender distillations...4 oz glass mist bottle $15,      1 liter (32 ounces) $65.00

12 oz. Honey bear $12

2 0z. "Baby" honey bear: looks like the 12oz Honey Bear,   just 2 oz! $3

 

People constantly ask me at Farmer's market why the bees are dying..... 

We are covering the earth with concrete, asphalt,
and Rounduping* (yes that is a verb) all of the luscious weed  fields that are the
bees' food forage.  WE ARE STARVING THE BEES TO DEATH!  It's not only cel phones, or
pesticides;  it is a  combination of factors.  But we  have to stop it because
BEES = FOOD and if people don't wise up to this fact then we humans will soon be starving too.

*Roundup is an herbicide

Lavender - we have several Rivendell Lavender essential oils available:

(The designation Fine Lavender refers to the sweet scented varieties called Lavandula angustifolia or officinalis)

We grow our lavender  ORGANICALLY, harvest manually, distill sensitively - long, slow, low pressure, low temperature

We have several distillations of our Lavender oil as follows:

Fine Lavender Lavandula angustifolia ' Rivendell Estate Blend' 10 different varieties of our organically grown Lavandula angustifolia  distilled together: High sweet  notes, good for perfumery, emotional therapy and stress, settling down for meditation or sleep    2.5 ml $5.00   10ml~$10.00,    30 ml $ 25.00    4 oz $59.00,   16 oz $190                            10 ml Rollon 'perfume'  (Essential oil in Hazelnut carrier oil) $10.00

Fine Lavender Lavandula angustifolia 'Alba' White Lavender  has a sweet heady first note with just a hint of butterscotch and a little snippet of camphor; excellent for perfumery and in aromatherapy as a calming sedative, pain relief, antiseptic, headache relief, heart tonic (physically and mentally), depression, hysteria and panic, skin problems:  2.5ml $11.00      10ml~$19.00,     30 ml $49.00

Lavandin, Lavandula intermedia 'Grosso' Used in aromatherapy for respiratory ailments, muscle pain, and circulatory distress; my oil tested out with a high level of linalool and linalyl acetate, the "high" notes so prized by aromatherapists for sedative and pain relief qualities.           Cold & flu prevention: Lavandula intermedia 'Grosso' properties. Michael Scholes, Lab of Flowers, wrote me that he was teaching a class in NYC when he felt himself coming down with flu. He took a long hot bath with my Lavandin and then went to bed and rubbed some on his chest. He woke the next morning without symptoms!  Debbie Freund, RN, teaches nurses how to use this oil to prevent infection and stimulate their immune system.   This  essential oil may help avoid and treat virus infections    2.5 ml $3,    10ml~$7.00,   30 ml $18.00,   4 oz $48,    8 oz $86,    16 oz $152

NOW AVAILABLE!  Lavender/Immortelle The idea for this oil came from a suggestion by John Steele to do a co-distillation of Helichrysum italicum and Lavender. We harvest our beautiful blue Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote' which produces an oil with a lovely sweet essence. Then we add to the same still  some of our first pick of the golden flowered Helichrysum italicum.   Distilling both herbs in the same still produces an oil with a lovely sexy lavender essence and an underground warm toasty honey after-note from the Heli.   John Steele describes this as a molecularly melded magical oil with a synergy of the healing properties of Helichrysum and the soothing properties of Lavender.     2.5ml $6     10ml~$22.00,    30 ml $52.00

Lovely hydrosols (AKA:  Hydrolat, flower water) also available from all of the lavender distillations...4 oz glass mist bottle $15,      1 liter (32 ounces) $65.00

HYDROSOLS

the 'flower water' from steam distillation

All material provided on this website is provided for informational or educational purposes only,

"Water Solution" is the Latin translation of the word, but in aromatherapy a hydrosol is the molecular melding of the essence of a plant or aromatic substance with the water that is used to distill the essential oils from the plant material. Our hydrosols are produced during steam distillation and are never diluted before sale. Our distillations are done in a long slow process with very low pressure system. We use only organically grown plant material with the intention that the hydrosols will be used therapeutically. Enjoy!

Helichrysum information

Helichrysum italicum (angustifolia) aka Immortelle, Everlasting

Grown organically and sensitively distilled at Rivendell

Helichrysum italicum (angustifolia) Also known as Immortelle or Everlasting
Grown organically at Rivendell, distilled in a sensitive, low pressure and low temperature distillation.

We produce two products:

1. Essential Oil
2. Hydrosol, which is the distilled water from a steam distillation; hydrosol is totally infused with the herb, and is used therapeutically in many ways.

Excerpt from Amrita website, Dr. Christoph Streicher:
Helichrysum as a herb has been revered since the time of Homer and the ancient Greeks for its great wound healing ability. Fifteen years ago French aromatherapists started to distill and investigated possible therapeutic uses of this oil… Helichrysum is more anti-inflammatory than German Chamomile, more tissue regenerating than Lavender, more cicatrisant (helping the formation of scar tissue) than Frankincense. Along with Frankincense, Myrrh, Spikenard, and Rose, Helichrysum ranks as one of the most ancient and valuable healing substances. It heals physical and emotional scarring, opens the heart, connects body and spirit, and opens human beings to spiritual life.
Use Helichrysum Oil for:
Wounds and scar tissue - Helichrysum is the oil of choice for healing scar tissue, whether from a recent wound, operation, or tissue that has been scarred for years. It stops bleeding, helps a scab to form and tissue to repair itself. It can be added to a carrier oil and applied to stretch marks, acne scars, surgical scars, and wounds of all kinds.
Skin care products - Add Helichrysum to skin care products for its skin-rejuvenating properties. It also has remarkable effects on sensitive and inflamed skin.   Helichrysum+ Rosehip seed oil to fade old scars.
Healing of emotional scarring - Add to a blend for diseases where there is an emotional etiology, particularly addictions and heart disease. Use in counseling to bring to the surface feelings that have been denied.
Addictions - This oil helps one detox from alcohol, drugs, and nicotine, releasing the body and mind from addictive patterns. Make a blend to diffuse or to rub on the heart area.
Coronary complaints & phlebitis - Helichrysum opens the flow of subtle heart energies. Rub a blend on the heart area. Its anti-inflammatory and tissue regenerating properties also help repair swollen or weak veins.
Spiritual growth - Helichrysum's ability to heal emotional scarring, enhance the flow of subtle heart energy, and connect the body with spirit makes it an invaluable aid for spiritual growth.

A New Approach to Treating Common Sports Injuries Using Helichrysum Italicum Essential Oil by Michelle Cech    http://www.mytherapypractice.com/therapies/sports-injuries-essential-oils.html
Despite the image of Aromatherapy as lacking in scientific foundation in the United States, the use of pure, therapeutic grade essential oil for medical applications is common throughout much of Europe. The essential oil distilled from the flowers of Helichrysum Italicum is well-known for its broad range of actions, which can support healing of many common sports-related injuries.

The essential oil's compounds are known to prevent and relieve blood clotting (helpful for bruising), stimulate tissue regeneration, act as a powerful anti-oxidant, and can reduce inflammation. This combination of effects many help with injuries such as twists and sprains, bruises,
tendonitis and the like. Any dedicated athlete would greatly
welcome such a non-toxic, effective alternative healing remedy!

Medical aromatherapists understand the efficacy of essential oils for particular conditions; the oils are not considered a natural cure-all, but each plant offers chemical compounds with clear specificity of effects. Beyond the effects of each chemical compound within an oil, some oils efficacy is a clear synergy of the particular chemical makeup. Individual chemicals within essential oils are well-known antivirals, antimicrobials, anti-inflammatories, expectorants, mucolytics, anti-tumorials...and the list goes on. Some essential oils will contain synergies of these compounds; oils suggested for colds will contain components that are antibacterial, antiviral, and mucolytic (cleanses breathing passages) all in one essential oil. And what does this offer for the injured athlete? The possibility of speedier return to training and competition with Helichrysum italicum essential oil, which contains a synergy of compounds which can act to support healing of a great variety of common injuries.

The physiological basis of many sports injuries, both chronic - from overuse - and acute, from impacts, twists and strains, have many similarities. There is usually some cells that have suffered structural damage - some enough that the cells will die and need to be re-grown. Inflammation is a common characteristic; most often from fluid leaking from inter- or intra-cellular spaces. This fluid can be blood from damaged capillaries, and appear as bruising; either way swelling will
prevent proper perfusion - or nutrient and waste exchange - at the damaged site. This can lead to secondary damage - where cells around the originally damaged tendon, ligament or muscle cells are also becoming damaged by lack of oxygenation or nutrient supply. Further damage can occur through the over-production of free-radicals under such conditions. This is why immediate application of ice to an acute injury can have a substantial effect on the total damage and the speed of healing. The ice prevents the secondary damage associated with swelling and oxidation from occurring.

Now for a look at the synergistic actions of Helichrysum Italicum essential oil (there are several types of Helichrysum essential oil available - it is the Italicum, also known as Everlasting or Immortelle, that has these particular properties). The plant has a relatively low oil yield, and is not a commonly farmed; hence the extra cost of this special variety. Helichrysum has a high percentage of anti-inflammatory sesquiterpenes - nearly 50% of it's makeup. Another 40% is made up of Esters with marked relaxing effects on tissues - relieving tension in injured areas and allowing natural perfusion to take place. The third major component is a di-ketone, which signals
tissues to regenerate. These di-ketones are rare, and Helichrysum Italicum contains the highest known percentage.

As with the healing effect of most essential oils, it is the combination of effects from each molecule working together that can offer dramatic healing action. One professional athlete recently relayed an account of his use of the oil - after lack of success in treating Achilles tendonitis, he was sure he was going to have to drop out of an important upcoming event. He had been taking MSM, using topical Dimethylsulfoxide, consuming oral anti-infamies, and attempting to address the imbalance which had caused the injury in the first place - all to no avail. After learning about Helichrysum, he decided it was worth a try, and after three days of regular application to the tendon, the pain was gone and he was able to continue his training at
maximum capacity!

While this is only one case, it is interesting that relief was found so quickly, and to a chronic injury that was otherwise difficult to treat. The scientific medical aromatherapy literature describes usage for acute injuries (such as recently twisted ankles, wrists, or areas bruised from impact) more frequently. According to Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt in Advanced Aromatherapy:

"Everlasting oil is certainly one of the most astounding essential oils. Its very unique chemical composition
along with (all) essential oil's ability to penetrate into
tissue and the circulatory system permit some spectacular treatments. Used for bruises, sprains, and twisted ankles - usually accompanied by swelling and subsequent hemorrhages - this oil proves practically to be a wonder cure."

He goes on to mention that the earlier the application of the oil following an acute injury, the more pronounced the healing effect.

If you decide to try the oil, be sure of your source, and that the variety is correct one discussed here. The oil is appropriate for range of injuries - minor to major though of course it is not a substitute for proper medical attention in any way. Using the oil in conduction with a prescribed therapy should be discussed with your doctor.

The literature does state that the oil is very well tolerated, and can be applied directly to the skin undiluted. An application of a thin film a few times a day, as soon as chronic pain is noted, or an acute injury occurs, is best. The oil can be used on broken or damaged skin - in fact, it is included in formulas to reduce scar formation along with Rosehip seed and Hazelnut oils (a 5% dilution of Helichrysum in a 50/50 blend of these two base oils can be used to support wound healing).

In summary, Helichrysum italicum essential oil is a gentle, topical treatment which may speed healing for many common sport-related injuries. It is regarded as a very safe oil and is worth a try if you are in need of such support. (If you are not a therapist, please consult a suitably qualified health practitioner where appropriate.)

Excerpt from Suzanne Catty's book, Hydrosols The next Aromatherapy, Healing Arts Press:
" Helichrysum italicum/ Immortelle/Everlasting HYDROSOL pH 3.5 - 3.8
Aroma and Taste Unusual. For some it is like honey on warm toast. I would say warm, dry, herbaceous and hay-like with an edge of hot summer and dusty hilltops and decidedly Mediterranean. The flavor is bitter, almost soapy, with no hint of the sweetness evident in the scent.
Stability Stable. Usually lasts for two years, although it is so effective for so many things it gets used before it fades.
Properties and applications A strong anti-hematoma, although less dramatically analgesic (pain relieving) than the oil. Applied in a compress to bangs and bumps or old aches, it can even bring subcutaneous bruises to the surface, exposing hidden damage. Wonderful as a sports rub after workout or physical labor because of its powerful anti-inflammatory and mild analgesic properties. Used in synergy with the rather expensive Immortelle essential oil, it can reduce the amount of essential oil needed during a long-term healing, such as for broken bones, where there is a lot of bruising and swelling. Significantly anti-inflammatory and cicatrisant for all wound and tissue damage.
Combine Helichrysum with rock rose in a douche for endometriosis, fibroids, and painful periods. Regular use, especially in combination with essential oil treatments, can significantly ameliorate these conditions, and in some cases fibroids can be cured altogether.
A few recipes follow. Refer to her book for more recipes, especially for fibroids.

Helichrysum hydrosol is a must for aftercare in any surgery, speeding the healing of incisions and needle wounds, reducing swelling and bruising, and detoxifying the liver of anesthetic*. Also, used for detoxifying the body after chemotherapy.
It is also a wonder for cleaning and healing tattoos or body piercing.
Use as a mouthwash after dental work. For gingivitis or receding gums, use one tablespoon neat (undiluted) or mixed 50:50 with water as a mouthwash two times daily every day for six months and watch your dentist be amazed. It is also of use in combination with herbal treatments supporting the liver such as milk thistle, black radish, and artichoke, yet another bitter. Internal use of the hydrosol in a three-week protocol can speed recovery after a long illness, particularly if combined with Greenland moss, another liver supporter. Use two parts Immortelle to one part Greenland moss and drink thirty milliliters diluted in a liter of water daily.
In skin care it can help heal scar tissue and is good in synergy with the essential oil and with rose hip seed oil and other hydrosols like carrot seed, sage and frankincense. One Client used it constantly throughout the day in light mists after a car accident, and her quite severe bruising disappeared in a matter of days. It is good for sensitive, mature or congested skin and helps heal ingrown hairs."

RECIPES from Acqua Vita
Terminology: E.O. = Essential Oil, V.O. = Vegetable oil (Carrier oil), A.H. = Aromatic Hydrosol
1. Black Eye Put 5 ml Hydrosol of Helichrysum on a cotton pad and apply to site of impact; repeat every 5 minutes for 6 applications. Follow with:
5 ml Helichrysum Hydrosol, 5 ml German Chamomile Hydrosol, or Yarrow Hydrosol
5 ml Greenland moss
Soak a pad with the blend and place on eye. Wrap lightly with a dry cloth and leave in place while you lie down for at least 30 minutes. Replace the pad frequently.
2. Bruises Apply one drop of Essential Oil Helichrysum to the site of the bruise and compress with cotton soaked in the Helichrysum hydrosol. The combined synergy of the oil and the hydrosol compress is phenomenal, although the hydrosol works well on its own.
3. Scars and Stretch marks Spritz Helichrysum hydrosol onto scar and then apply the following essential oil blend while still moist. This is great for stretch marks, which cover a larger area than normal scars, and seems to speed up the process with old scar tissue and keloids.
2.5 ml Essential Oil of Helichrysum , 2.5 ml Rose Hip Seed Oil, 5 ml Hazelnut Oil.
Combine and use only 1 drop or the smallest amount that will cover the scar, four to six times a day, every day. Results are usually visible in the first week or two. Tiny amounts repeated frequently are the key to success with scar tissue.
4. Nosebleed If the nosebleed is a result of a blow to the face or head, use Hydrosol of Helichrysum on the bridge of the nose and 1 drop Helichrysum Essential Oil on the site of impact.
5. Gingivitis and Receding Gums Dilute 10 ml Helichrysum hydrosol in 100 ml water and use as a morning mouth rinse after brushing and flossing teeth; repeat at night. Do not swallow the rinse, and use it all every time. Repeat daily for as long as required. Receding gums may take several months to respond, but Helichrysum will have a positive effect. Your dental hygienist will be amazed!

Leticia Cornejo, Ventura, California: "I have been putting the liquid (hydrosol) on my son's acne on his forehead and it is helping to keep the skin clear."

Sandy Messori, Ventura, CA: My son Tyson cut his thumb with a sickle while harvesting Lavender. It was a jagged cut and deep, but he would not go to the ER for a stitch. I washed it out with hydrogen peroxide and put a drop of Helichrysum oil on it. It seeped for a day because it was so deep, but healed so quickly, from the inside out that he had the bandage off after only 5 days, and the scar is minimal. Also, my cat had a spot on her little pink nose that was raw and wouldn't heal for weeks so I dabbed Heli oil on it and it healed within 3 days. I use the Heli hydrosol in my "water pic" and I have reversed the progress of gingivitis gum disease…my dental hygienist has noticed a marked improvement. I spray the hydrosol on bruises and they seem to disappear more quickly.

The following Essential Oil Therapy information is excerpted from Julia Meadows Guide "Essential Aromatics"

WHAT IS ESSENTIAL OIL THERAPY? It is the art and science of using the essential oils of plant materials for health and beauty. Early civilizations - Egyptian, Green, Roman, Chinese, Indian - used aromatic plant materials in religious ritual, for healing and to promote physical and mental well-being. Throughout the centuries, essential oils have had respected healing applications in the herbal tradition, but the word 'aromatherapy' was not coined until the 1930's when several European doctors and biochemists integrated their essential oil research into their work. Aromatherapy, properly practiced, has shown successful results in the treatment of muscular, circulatory, respiratory, digestive and reproductive problems, as well as skin disorders and stress related conditions.

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS? Essential oils are the 'essential' part of the plant, the fragrance component, present only in small quantities in the living plant organism. They are variously found in leaves, twigs, flowers, roots and bark of plants, as well as in spices and the rinds of citrus fruits. The quality is largely determined by place of origin, plant type, geographic locale, cultivation methods, climatic changes, and distillation techniques. Like other commodities, there are many levels of quality in essential oils available commercially. 'Premium-quality' (or 'therapeutic grade') pure essential oils are those which are obtained as close to the natural source as possible, from healthy plants ideally organically-grown or wild-crafted, harvested in their optimal state and processed quickly. The best pure essential oils are not rectified, decolorized or chemically altered in any way and are not pre-diluted with oils, alcohol or other additives.

HOW ARE ESSENTIAL OILS PRODUCED? The majority of essential oils are obtained from plants by steam distillation, producing a 'volatile oil'. Citrus oils are produced by 'expression' - cold pressing the fruit peel mechanically or by hand. Generally, the extraction process takes place within a few hours of harvesting, with the distillation equipment in place on-site. The actual 'yield' of a plant harvest may vary from as high as 10% (as with Tea Tree) to as little as .02% (as with rose, which requires 1000 pounds of rose petals to produce one pound of rose oil!) Aromatic materials are also obtained by other methods such as concretes and absolutes (in the case of highly fragrant flowers too delicate for steam) and oleo-resins, resinoids and balsams (from natural gums, resins and woods.)

HOW DO ESSENTIAL OILS WORK IN AROMATHERAPY? Essential oils are used to treat a wide range of complaints affecting the many systems of the body - skin; circulation, muscles and joints; respiratory; digestive; genito-urinary/endocrine; nervous system and immune system. Essential oils, being highly-concentrated, biologically-active compounds which are oil-soluble and partially water-soluble, are extremely compatible with body/skin function. Diluted in the appropriate carrier, they are applied externally in various ways. Of great current interest is 'psycho-aromatherapy' - the influence of aromas on the mind and emotions. It has been observed and recorded that the aromas of essential oils, when inhaled, pass through the olfactory tract to the limbic system ( the brain center of memory and emotion) evoking powerful responses. Brain neuro-chemicals are released, creating feelings which may be stimulating, relaxing, sedative, aphrodisiac or euphoric.

HOW DO I USE THE OILS? Following are several methods of use:

Massage/Body care/Haircare: Massaging the body to relieve pain and stress is a natural instinct. Body treatments with essential oils relax muscles, improve blood circulation and assist in the elimination of toxins. For massage/body care applications, essential oils are always diluted in a neutral base called a 'carrier,' which is a fresh cold-pressed vegetable or nut oil (rich in nutrients and essential fatty acids for skin health) or an unscented natural lotion. Also, the beauty and health of the hair and scalp can benefit greatly from the addition of essential oils in scalp tonics, shampoos, conditioners and hot oil treatments.

Facial Skincare: All skin types - oily, normal dry, combination, sensitive, mature - can benefit from essential oils properly incorporated into cleansers, toners, floral waters, scrubs, masks and facial oils, moisturizers and creams. Many essential oils are active against bacterial infection, and are specific for acne/oily skin. Others are anti-inflammatory and cytophylactic (cell-regenerating) and are extremely helpful to dry, sensitive or aging skin.

Baths: Essential oils can be added directly to warm bathwater for a wonderful, healthy, aromatic bath. The oils may also be used in footbaths, sitzbaths, Jacuzzis, steambaths and saunas. (Hint - Add oils after you sit down in the tub for maximum aromatic effect and to avoid irritation of sensitive areas.)

Inhalation/Vaporization: Essential oils can bring speedy relief to respiratory and stress related problems. Inhale directly from the bottle or place a drop on a tissue. Drops may also be sprinkled on linens and pillows, or in an electric vaporizer to rehydrate and fragrance the air. Make a natural room spray by mixing essential oils with water in a spray bottle. For an effective steam inhalation, add essential oils to just-boiled water and inhale to relieve stress and congestion, and enjoy a cleansing facial sauna.

Diffusers/Room fresheners: Many types of electric diffusers are now available for home and office use. Ceramic diffusers using a 'tea candle' gently heat essential oils in a small water bath above. Hanging pottery diffusers in a variety of shapes and sizes are designed for smaller spaces, including cars. All these methods work by 'diffusing' the essential oil molecules into the air. Essential oils may also be added directly to dried herbs and flowers to make a natural pot-pourri, or onto any porous decorative object to make a naturally fragrant 'pomander'.

Natural Perfumes/Eau-de-Toilettes: Pure essential oils and absolutes make beautiful 100% natural perfumes when blended in a base of jojoba oil, alcohol or water. Select a pretty bottle, vial or spray and let your imagination be your guide.

MEASUREMENTS:

Massage/Body care/Haircare oils: 20-25 drops essential oils) to 1 ounce (30 ml) carrier oils); or 4 - 5 drops of essential oils) to 1 teaspoon carrier oils).

Facial skincare oils: 8 - 10 drops essential oils) to 1 ounce carrier oil; or 1 drop essential oil to 1 teaspoon carrier oil.

Baths: 5 - 10 drops essential oils) Swish the oil thoroughly through the bathwater after you have entered the tub. Footbath: 2 - 4 drops. Jacuzzi: 5 - 10 drops. Steam baths: 3 - 4 drops at the heat source. Sauna: 3 - 4 drops in 16 ounces water.

Inhalation/Vaporization: Tissue inhalation: 1 drop. Vaporizers: 5 - 10 drops in distilled water. Room Sprays: 2 - 10 drops in 1 ounce distilled water, shake thoroughly. Steam inhalation: 2 - 3 drops in just-boiled water; cover your head with a towel, close the eyes and breathe deeply.

Diffusers/Room fresheners: Electric diffusers: follow the manufacturer's instructions for room size and diffuser type. 'Water bath' diffusers: 4 - 8 drops in the water. Hanging car diffusers: new unglazed pottery, 10 - 30 drops; refresh as needed. Natural pot-pourri: 10 - 20 drops mixed in with 1 - 2 ounces dried material.

Natural Perfumes/Eau-de-Toilette: Perfumes: 15 - 30% essential oils) to 70 - 85% jojoba oil. Eau-de-Toilettes: 5 - 10% essential oils) to 90 - 95% distilled water/alcohol mix. Eau-de-cologne: 1 - 5 % essential oils) to distilled water/alcohol mix. (you may use vodka or grain alcohol). Shake well before each use.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Aromatherapy, when practiced correctly, is a gentle and complementary therapy which gives excellent benefits. For best results follow these simple rules:

· Do not take essential oils internally.   (some therapists trained in Europe take small amounts of the oils diluted in liquid)
· Be sure to purchase premium-quality pure essential oils in dark glass bottles. Store in a cool dark place and keep out of the reach of children. Essential oils will last 2 - 3 years (citrus oils, 1 - 2 years).
· If you suspect that you may be allergic to any substance, we recommend that you conduct a 'patch test' as follows: rub a few drops of your blend on the inside of your elbow, cover and check after 12 hours. If redness or skin irritation occurs, do not use.
· Oils to avoid: Mugwort, pennyroyal, rue.
· Oils to avoid during pregnancy: basil, fennel, hyssop, marjoram, rosemary, sage.
· Oils which may cause skin irritation if not diluted: black pepper, cinnamon, clove, ginger, peppermint, thyme, oregano.
· Oils which can cause skin photosensitivity: citrus and bergamot.

NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE PURE ESSENTIAL OILS WITH OTHER OILS, OFTEN LABELED 'FRAGRANCE OIL' or 'PERFUME OIL', ETC. For the practice of True Aromatherapy, only premium quality pure essential oils of botanical origin are used.

I highly recommend Julia Meadow's excellent book: Natural Body care, Creating Aromatherapy Cosmetics for Health and Beauty.  Many of my products were created using the information from this book. The writing is concise, the information is very well researched and accurate and it's a beautiful book visually with lovely photographs to illustrate her ideas.  Sandy Messori

REJUVENATING FACE OIL:

A blend of rich, rare and nutrient oils to help your skin look its best

"My Face oil is made especially to rejuvenate, rehydrate, protect and heal your skin. I formulated the oil for myself - I have spent my whole life out in the sun, most of the time unprotected, and now my skin needs help to recover from the harsh effects of the elements. The rich and rare oils in this blend are used by aromatherapists and in massage therapy for their specific skin healing properties."

 

For my dry skin, I actually use my Rejuvenating Face Oil 'Cleopatra's Secret' on all of my skin which has been exposed to the sun over the years. After my bath, while I am still damp, I apply the oil to my face by pumping a few dollops on the back of my left hand and then rubbing that with the back of my right hand. I smooth the oil onto my face and neck like a kitty cat, not rubbing the delicate skin, just laying it on. Pump some more on the back of the hands and smooth the oil up the arms. Then I pump some more into the palms of my hands and smooth it on my feet and legs.
If I want to apply the oil in between baths, I mist my skin with Helichrysum hydrosol. This hydrosol is very healing and soothing. My mother discovered additional interesting aspects of the Helichrysum while using it for her arthritis inflammation in her hands. She called me one day after misting the Helichrysum hydrosol on hands and arms for about 8 weeks and said "My age spots are fading!" Mom also said that it faded the under-the-skin purple bruises that are common with thinning skin. I didn't really believe her, but then I read more about Helichrysum on internet and found that it is specific in the European medica for bruises and skin lesions. S.M.

My basic soap recipe may include some of the following pure ingredients:

  • Palm Kernel Oil makes a hard soap that lathers well.  We use sustainably harvested palm oil.
  • Coconut oil makes a quick fluffy lather.
  • Olive oil is a wonderful moisturizer that does not block the natural functions of the skin. It allows the skin to continue sweating, releasing sebum and shedding dead skin while helping to hold moisture close to the skin. Moisture helps the skin stay supple and smooth.
  • Calendula oil is anti-inflammatory and regenerative, helps heal all kinds of skin damage, burns, wounds, scars and softens dry chapped skin.
  • Rose Hip Seed Oil promotes tissue regeneration, reduces scarring on wounds, fades old scars, heals burns, reduces lines and wrinkles on the skin.
  • Sodium hydroxide, is an essential ingredient for all soaps. That is what soap is - a combination of a caustic and lipids (fats/oils) which undergo a chemical reaction that produces soap. NO LYE OR FATS ARE LEFT OVER IN OUR PROCESS!   THE SOAP IS VERY MILD AND PEOPLE WITH SENSITIVE SKIN HAVE NEVER RETURNED SOAP TO ME!
  • True Essential Oils come from plants and are used for scent and therapeutic properties.

BEES = FOOD and if people don't wise up to this fact then we humans will soon be starving too.

White Sage

Native people have used White Sage (Salvia apiana) for centuries as a powerful spiritual cleanser and medicinal herb. We harvest the sage in a respectful manner from our own farm. The sacred smudge bundles are tied with hemp twine and come with an informative card.

To use the Sage Bundle in a spiritual cleansing ceremony, light the smudge and burn for a few seconds, extinguish the flame and let the smoke waft over you, your room, your house, office, pet, car.

You don't need to burn the whole smudge at once. Be careful to extinguish completely before storing.


The dry herb may be boiled and the steam inhaled for chest cold. A 'tea' of the dried leaves can be used as a douche for Candida (yeast infection), a wash or a soak for dirty abrasions.

From Michael Moore's Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West: This plant is a dandy. It has been used throughout it's growing area by Native folks, Anglo settlers and Spanish Californians. The diterpenes are effective against staph, candida and Klebsiella pneumoniae - three bugs that cover a wide range of conditions; and the aromatics act as counterirritants to increase the depth of effect on tissues. The plant is best prepared as a tincture since the carnosic acids are poorly water soluble. Fill a small jar full of leaves, add a tablespoon of alcohol (grain alcohol or vodka) on top of them, close the lid and store the pickled leaves for tea use. Use these leaves to make tea which can be drunk for chest colds (breathe the steam of the tea for inhalation while you are at it.) The douche is a good treatment for acute candidal vaginitis and the sitz bath will help limit the yeast on the outside of the area. The tea, tincture or powder is an excellent wash or dust for dirty scrapes and abrasions. Simply soak the area in tea if it is a particularly nasty injury. Alternate soak with hydrogen peroxide wash will take care of almost anything.

WHITE SAGE BUNDLE: 8 to 9 inch smudge bundle tied with hemp twine + informative card $5.00

WHITE SAGE SACHET: 2 oz. bag of loose sage leaves for use as tea + informative card $5.00 each

White Sage Flowers: The flowers of the White Sage (Salvia apiana) are particularly intense. To use the Sage flowers in a spiritual cleansing ceremony, boil ¼ cup in 4 cups of distilled water for 4 minutes. Allow to steep for 4 hours. Add this liquid to your bath and soak for 40 minutes. Add a few flowers to a charcoal burner or fire. The flowers may be boiled and the steam inhaled for chest cold. small sage green organza bag with informative card $5.00 each


NEW! We distilled our own White Sage Plants and received a most excellent Essential Oil and Hydrosol.

The Essential Oil is exquisite, a clear oil with a 'green' scent highlighted with a little camphor and high notes reminiscent of Rosemary and Lavender but distinctive of White Sage (Salvia apiana) 10 ml Violet Glass Bottle or 10 ml glass dropper bottle $22, 30 ml  glass dropoper bottle $5400.

The Hydrosol fragrance is strong, an intense mix of sage, rosemary and lavender. Sweeter than Salvia officinalis. Suzanne Catty writes in her book, Hydrosols The Next Aromatherapy, "Although the flavor is very nice, I do not recommend white sage for internal use. Its sphere of activity is energetic. This is the desert sage that has been used by Native Americans for ritual, smudging, and healing as far back as traditions go. The energy field of the hydrosol is unbelievable; the pendulum is almost horizontal, its swing is so strong. Use as a mist for the auric field, use to cleanse and program crystals and other healing tools, apply by anointing to the chakras and energy points of the body, and mist through the air to disperse negative energies in healing rooms or your home. Avoid applying directly to polished metal objects, as it can affect the finish. Really most extraordinary and powerful."

Hydrosol:  30 ml (~1 oz)  glass bottle $7 (Violet glass bottle available, add $1)

4 oz  glass bottle with mister $15

1 liter glass bottle $69

Violet Glass Information

The history of the violet glass (From the Violet Glass Website)
Ever since the beginning of glass production, approximately. 3,500 years pre Christ, violet or golden containers/bottles have been used exclusively to preserve precious salves, oils, essences and alternative medicines. Today, thanks to science, we know that life (energy) is best preserved by Violet, and no other spectral range can compare.

In 1851 Jakob Lorber's (Graz, Austria. 1800-1864) edition "Healing Properties Of Sunlight" (Die Heilkraft des Sonnenlichtes) was published. In this volume he points out that violet glass is the ideal storage container for healing remedies and other substances that are sensitive to light. In 1991 after seven long years of research we found the right color tone of the violet glass.

Bottling in a Violet Glass Bottle adds $1 to the price of an oil

Question:
Why does the violet Miron Glass offer the best protection for their careful and still very expensively manufactured healing substances, essences, tinctures, natural cosmetics, food supplements, etc ?

Answer:
According to the Institute Fraunhofer in Munich (Germany) the radiation in the photosensitive area (app 450nm to 720nm) does not penetrate the glass. Brown glass on the other hand lets light through here and in all of the visible areas of the light spectrum. Experts talk about a potential "quality leak"
The secret of violet glass is based on the fact that violet spectral range (720 - 770 Bio herz) permanently activates and energizes the molecular structure, and the (healing) energy stored in the Miron glass doesn't "escape". Yin/Yang effect- Inhale/Exhale.

Recent research (Prof. F.A. Popp and Dr. H. Niggli, 1997 / 1998) proves show solar energy in our food is essential for our health. Solar energy enters our cells in form of bio-photons (smallest physical unit of light).

They include important information to control the complex life process in our bodies. The Bio-Photons have a strong regulating and balancing energy and put the organism into a higher vibration or order. These Bio-Photons are extremely sensitive.
Dr. H. Niggli's readings show that Bio-photons noticeably decrease in conventional packaging (brown glass, green glass, aluminium foil, synthetics, etc. ). Miron Glass maintains the high energy over a long period of time.
In October 1997 the institut of Dr. Dieter Knapp in Mittenwald, Germany clearly confirms the effectiveness of Miron-Glass.
After 36 days of storage in brown glass (photo A) a distinct energy loss of globuli that was exposed to the sun can be observed. In Miron-Glass the energy is preserved strongly, harmoniously and vibrant (photo B). The photos clearly prove how important it is to store healing substances in Miron- Glass especially in the categories of Homeopathy, Bach flowers, tinctures, essences, etc. but also for energy rich food supplements, and essential oils.
Late 1997 the Institute of Dr. D. Knapp tested different spirulina samples. Fresh tablets from the same production were packaged in different containers. After 4 weeks the results were measured. The results speak for themselves. The sample in the violet glass showed a strong and dynamic energy field. The samples in brown glass and in synthetic container showed a clear energy loss.

Our Avocado trees grow in the rich soils in the foothills of Casitas Pass, near Santa Barbara, California. They are kissed by the sun nearly every day while ocean breezes waft up the canyon. The bees, birds and wildlife love this habitat, and so do we. We pick only when the fruit has reached maturity, the texture is creamy, (not stringy) and the flavor is rich and nutty. The wonderful climate allows us to pick over a long season, since there are several microclimates throughout the hillside property; some areas are warm (the fruit mature quickly) and others are cool (the fruit matures slower). Our farmer's market customers say they are "the best anywhere!"

A box of our tasty avocados would make a great gift for someone - or treat yourself.   12 count box $39 including shipping and handling. *Price subject to market fluctuations.
