"Led by that perfume to these lands of ease;I see a port where many ships have flown;With sails outwearied of the wandering seas"
The Surly Herbalist always feels less surly when she smells nice. Each of our scents is made from essential oyl and/or phthalate-free fragrance oyl blended into a solid form for easy application without fear of over-use. And when your perfume is gone, you are left with an exquisite soapstone trinket box*.
Ingredients: Castor oyl, essential and/or phthalate-free fragrance oyl, candelilla wax, and sumac wax
*Note: these new style stone vessels hold almost 3 times the amount of perfume as the previous style vessels!
From the earliest of times there was the role of the healer. The herbalist. The "Wise Woman". She possessed knowledge of healing herbs and botanicals which was handed down from previous generations back. As a healer, the wise woman was usually the first stop for the average person when they were sick or had a health issue to address. Of course in the Medieval and Renaissance era, the wise woman may have been called a witch or a heretic and discouraged from practicing her art as women were not allowed a profession in that time. This of course would make any herbalist surly as hell!
It is up to us to cultivate our garden.
