Lavender: Helps with relaxation and promotes restfulness. It is also antibacterial, antifungal and an antioxidant that even helps with bruising.

Chamomile: With its relaxing scent, it is helpful in soothing anxiety, as well as inflammation. It is also a natural antibiotic, antibacterial and antifungal.

Comfrey: A phenomenal healing herb! Comfrey is used as a soothing anti-inflammatory astringent/ointment . It has the ability to knit wounds as well as speed up the healing process.

Calendula: Also knits wounds, with anti-inflammatory properties; it controls bleeding and heals damaged tissue and wounds. As if that weren’t enough, it also works as an antiseptic and antimicrobial!
