Herbal Magic for: 
  • Making time for yourself
  • Soothing cuts and burns
  • Skin irritation and inflammation
  • Creating space for tenderness
  • A love letter to your body

Our salve kit contains all the ingredients and instructions you will need to make your own herbal based skin care.

You’ll use just three ingredients, all grown in PA: hand-picked Katydid Hill calendula flowers, sunflower oil and beeswax straight from the hives. The final product is a silky smooth, luxurious all-purpose salve that you made in your own kitchen!

Making medicine is an intimate and thrilling process and through it we have a chance to learn about ourselves and our bodies.

This salve kit was born from a place of love and excitement for the powerhouse flower calendula: pure summer sun magic in a flower.

Working with the warming properties of calendula, you’ll get to experience the transformation of three simple ingredients into a golden orange salve, right in your kitchen.

A sweet gift for anyone interested in herbal skin care, seeking connection with herbs, or generally wants to slow down and do something nice for themselves or loved ones.  

We hope you find this kit to be a balm, bringing comfort and relaxation to your day.

    “It was a fun process...I have a lot of love for calendula, so I was particularly excited to work with this plant for the salve (which is also a very practical recipe for me in treating my sensitive skin/eczema). Looking forward to continuing to use it!”

    farming with heart

    For Ben and I, farming is always about learning and trying to do our best. Just as often as we get things right, we mess things up, so to say we have a perfect system for growing herbs wouldn't be true. What we do is put lots of care and heart into growing the herbs for you.
