Jewelweed: Jewelweed’s brilliant orange flowers can be seen dancing atop its moist, succulent stem. A classic remedy for poison ivy, the two can often be found growing close by, pointing to its affinity for neutralizing itchy, inflamed skin conditions. Rubbing a fresh plant over the skin offers immediate relief for a variety of skin upsets such as bug bites, eczema, rashes and sunburn.
Chickweed: Commonly enjoyed in the spring as a mineral-rich wild food, Chickweed is a wonderful ally to soothe and heal itchy, dry and irritated skin. Its moist, cooling nature brings comfort to burns, rashes, eczema and hives.
Calendula: If sunshine itself was a flower, it would be calendula. Calendula’s bright, sunny blossoms soothe skin irritation and inflammation of various kinds both inside and outside the body. Sticky, golden tinted fingers are a common sight here at Ravencrest as we hand harvest the resinous blooms daily through the summer and autumn. A gentle and mild bitter, Calendula brings light and movement to the liver, lymph, skin and digestive system.
St. John's Wort: A sacred herb that historically blooms at the peak of summer solstice, St. John’s wort embodies sunshine, movement and expression. This valuable and versatile plant is a potent wound healer, used in many remedies to reduce pain, inflammation and speed wound healing. In addition to its topical strengths, a few of its many uses include helping improve liver detoxification and to address depression by balancing the nervous system.
