Wishbone Medicinals- made in Portland-available in our apothecary
S + F stocks a worn-wood shelf’s full of healing herbal products. Each product aids a holistic approach to well-being and are wildcrafted through the knowledge and positivity of herbal artisan Claudia Coleman and co. My most recent obsession? Wishbone medicinals’ lavender sage oil. Both lavender and sage offer topical healing properties. In the past week I have applied the oil to bug bites, sun-dry elbows and a river rock scrape. Lavender is also one of the most powerful aromatherapy tools available. A little lavender sage oil applied to the temples remedies tension headaches. I could elaborate on lavender’s healing properties but, perhaps, it is best discovered first-hand. Wishbone Medicinals also offers tinctures and salves. Befriend your digestive system with a burdock and dandelion root tincture. This soothes your digestive lining and provides a boost of potassium and iron. Healing chamomile, calendula and rose blends are available in concentrated salves…
Basically, there are so many ways to take care of yourself. Wishbone gets it. Come explore the entire line on our medicine shelf.-Elissa Hall
