Our Unique Ingredient Selection Process
Step One: The Oils
Base Oils Made By The Moon
We use base oils as the main component for many of our salves and massage oils. These base oils are plant oils, such as sesame and olive oil, that have been infused with herbs. This is a unique, energy-saving, and Earth friendly process in comparision to the harmful oil heating process that many other other companies perform. By heating the oils, they harm the composition of the herbs. We utilizing the weak gravitational pull of the Moon, allowing for a richer process, and also a nodding to traditions of yore.
We begin infusing our base oils with herbs on the day of the new moon. On this day the moon is completely hidden from view by Earth’s shadow. We add fresh herbs such as cayenne pepper, ginger, and arnica to a base oil, and then we let the moon work its magic.
During the next two weeks as the moon moves from new to full, known as the waxing phase, we utilize the moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth to extract the medicinal properties out of the herbs and into the oil. This is the same force that creates high tides and earthquakes.
On the full moon, we filter the herbs out of the oil. Their healing powers have been successfully transferred into the oil.
