Meet the Plant Allies that Will Support You On Your Journey

The most highly overlooked element of massage is what you are putting on your skin and subsequently IN your body.
Which is why I exclusively use handcrafted, locally sourced, organic herbal body oils.

My oils are made from organic plant based oils (olive, sunflower, etc)

and infused with whole plants harvested from farms and in the wild of Central Oregon.

 

 

These magical herbal oils hydrate the nervous,
enhance the lymph and immune systems,
and nurture the emotional system.
 
The herbs each have their own healing properties, and the whole herb extraction method is amazingly potent.
*Note* These are NOT Essential Oils.

Essential Oils are resource intensive and their doses/applications are easy to misuse/overuse.

A big thank you to the local farmers and herbalists that have contributed to the making of these oils:

Megan and David of Boundless Farmstead

Amanda Benkert of Dome Grown Produce

Natalie Danielson of Friends of Family Farms

Laura Parker, Herbalist and owner of The Empowered Woman

Sofia Krasteva, Herbalist and Friend
