"Camomile is one of the most widely used herb teas, highly regarded for its digestive and calming properties. Camomile, sometimes known as the "Band-Aid for the stomach," should be one of the first herbs considered for all digestive complaints. It is a good remedy for a number of diseases ranging from the common cold and flu to digestive disorders, diarrhea, menstrual cramps, nervousness and insomnia."  (Tierra, Michael. the way of Herbs. Pocket Books, 1998)

"One of chamomile's major consituents is azulen, a beautiful, azure blue, volatile oil obtained by steam distillation. Azulen contains a whole complex of active principles that serve as anti-inflammatory and antipyretic agents. Its medicinal action is most obvious in three major areas: the nervous system, the immune system, and the digestive system." (Gladstar, Rosemary. Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. Storey Publishing, 2008)

Plant preparations:

When drinking a chamomile infusion before bed, steep the chamomile in boiling water for 5min and drink the infusion 45min before bed to metabolize the tea and feel the calming benefits.

"A strong infusion made from chamomile and boiling water will also ease the discomfort of earache: use a few warmed drops of the infusion several times a day until relief is given. Used cool, the infusion will reduce inflammation of the eyes: soak pads of link in it and hold over the eyelids for a few minutes. Chamomile also has skin-care uses.” (Daisley, Gilda. The Illustrated Book of Herbs. Winchmore Publishing, 1985)

Our organic certification is from PACS Certification Society in BC, Canada and our herb drying facility is approved by Interior Health.

We are a small-scale producer of culinary and medicinal herbs. All herbs are grown on our certified organic farm in British Columbia and are hand harvested, dried, and packaged on site in a dedicated approved facility. Our products are picked at their peak and dried in small batches to retain shape and flavour.

Our farm also uses regenerative farming practices, such as using animals (goats, sheep, pigs) to maintain and prepare new beds. This ensures that not only are we organic, but no heavy machinery ever touches the soil, and we maintain a healthy soil ecosystem.
