All our wild flowers are sustainably hand-harvested, and then gently distilled in small batches for unsurpassed quality. We have very limited quantities of each, and we set the most reasonable low prices – so they often sell out very fast. (This is not a marketing gimmick, it is really the case - they go fast.) Our Store page is constantly updated with the ones in stock. Pity we cannot make you smell them over the Internet, but we pack & ship so fast you will have them within days of placing your order. Thank you for your support of our forests and our carft, and please enjoy!

Yarrow is a very valuable, traditional medicinal herb, with much scientific evidence of use in alternative medicine as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, carminative, diaphoretic, digestive, emmenagogue, stimulant, and tonics, vasodilator and vulnerary. The main constituents are volatile oils including linalool, camphor, sabinene, and chamazulene, sesquiterpene lctones, flavanoids, alkaloids including achilleine, polyacetylenes, triterpenes, salicylic acid, coumarins, and tannins which prove these uses in alternative medicine to be effective. Extracts of yarrow exhibit antibiotic activity and may also act as anti-neoplastic drugs. Yarrow is used against colds, cramps, fevers, kidney disorders, toothaches, skin irritations, and hemorrhages, and to regulate menses, stimulate the flow of bile, and purify the blood.
There are two chemicals, achilletin and achilleine, found in Yarrow that both prompt blood coagulation. Yarrow also contains small amounts of a hypnotic chemical, thujone, whose effects are similar to those of marijuana, therefore having a sedative quality. There are eight chemicals, azulene, camphor, chamazulene, eugenol, menthol, quercetin, rutin, and salicylic acid, which all have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving action. Topical use only for our prducts!

The Tewa Indians because of the flavor it imparted cooked Wild bergamot with meat. The Iroquois used the bee balm in the making of a beverage. The plant has a historically wide variety of medicinal uses. The Ojibwe put a wad of chewed leaves of Mondarda Fistulosa into their nostrils to relieve headache. The tops of the horsemint were dried and used as a sternutatory for the relief of colds. The Fistulosa leaves were placed in warm water baths for babies. The Flambeau Ojibwe gathered and dried the whole plant, boiling it in a vessel to obtain the volatile oil to inhale to cure catarrh and bronchial affections. The Menomini also used this plant as a remedy for catarrh, steeping the leaves and inflorescences in a tea. The Meskwaki used this plant in combination with other plants to relieve colds. The Hocak (Winnebago) used wild bergamot in their sweat bath and inhaled the fumes to cure colds. The Choctaw Indians gave it as a cathartic, for colds, and to promote perspiration.The Oswego Indians infused Monarda as a drink and it became a popular tea substitute in New England following the Boston Tea Party.
A decoction of boiled leaves was used as a cure for eruptions on the face. The Cherokee made a warm poultice of the plant to relieve a headache. The Teton Dakota boiled together the leaves and flowers as a cure for abdominal pains. The Blackfoot made a tea from the blossoms and leaves to cure stomach pains. They also applied boiled leaves to the pustules of acne. The Tewa dried the plant and ground it into a powder that was rubbed over the head to cure headaches, over the body to cure fever, and as a remedy for sore eyes and colds. Early white settlers used it as a diaphoretic and carminative, and occasionally employed it for the relief of flatulent colic, nausea and vomiting.
The name Monarda honors the Spanish medical botanist, Dr. Nicholas Monardes of Seville, who wrote his herbal on the flora of America in 1569 in his book JOYFUL NEWS OUT OF THE NEWE FOUNDE WORLDE. He may have called the herb "bergamot" because its leaf scent resembles that of the small, bitter Italian bergamot citrus orange, citrus aurantium bergamia, which produces the oil of bergamot used in aromatherapy, perfumes, and cosmetics. John Bartram of Philadelphia, was instrumental in introducing the plant into England. Bartram collected seeds near Oswego New York in 1743 and sent them to Peter Collinson. They first bloomed in Collinson's garden in 1745 and he named the plant "Oswego Tea" for its point of collection in America.Monarda is often over-looked as a culinary herb and a tisane (herbal tea).
Mintleaf Beebalm Monarda fistulosa L. var. fistulosa (MINT FAMILY)Mintleaf beebalm is an erect, aromatic perennial 2-4 ft tall arising from a branched rhizome. The often-branched stem is square and usually and pubescent. The opposite leaves are commonly deltoid-lanceolate, pubescent, and more or less serrate. Both leaves and flowers are dotted with glands which secrete volatile, aromatic oils. The inflorescence is a hemispheric head with tubular pale lavender to rose-purple flowers with bilabiate corollas mixed with leafy bracts. The upper lip of the corolla is densely at the summit. The fruit is composed of 4 nutlets. The aroma from dried leaves of this plant can be used to freshen closets, trunks, and other areas. Native to North America. The brightly colored flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Also known as Monarda and Bergamot, because of its similar aroma to this citrus.
