So What’s In It?

Calendula Flower Extract: Calendula flowers contain a number of active compounds which are traditionally believed to promote healthy skin and support the healing process. Calendula is especially popular for its ability to help repair and quickly soothe, dry, irritated or sensitive skin.

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Known to the ancients as ‘Liquid gold’ and widely understood to be one of the world’s most healthy oils, extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality available. Rich in skin nourishing fatty acids, Vitamin E and antioxidants, olive oil is associated with numerous health benefits. It is deeply penetrating and acts to moisturise, nourish and condition the skin, helping it to stay supple and healthy.

Organic Beeswax: Used since antiquity and renowned for its restorative properties, beeswax forms a protective-‘breathable’ barrier for the skin. This barrier helps to moisturise the skin and also provides an effective defence against incoming environmental nasties. Naturally anti-bacterial, beeswax also helps to reduce inflammation and supports the healing process. Our beeswax comes from certified organic hives. This is because the bees are only in flying range of organic pesticide free crops and natural wild flowers.

Organic Shea Butter: A Superfood for the skin if ever there was one. Shea butter has traditionally been used to revitalize and re energize tired skin or flagging hair. Shea butter is jam packed with natural vitamins and fatty acids. These compounds help to nourish and moisturize the skin and also aid the skin’s natural collagen production. This is why Shea butter is so widely regarded for its skin toning and anti wrinkle properties.

Tocopherol: This is a naturally occurring form of Vitamin E which is derived from vegetable oil and is included to help preserve the shelf life of this product, without resorting to nasty synthetics or chemicals. Tocopherol is moisturisng and acts as a very effective antioxidant, helping to restore and rejuvenate all skin types.

The Hows & Whys

We employ a double infusion process to make all of our salves. This means we infuse the oil once in our lovely herbs, before straining and re-infusing the oil again with fresh herbs. The end result of all this infusing is to create a really potent brew! Many salve makers will only infuse their oil once, but using this double infusion method our customers are effectively getting twice the benefit.

It’s the flower heads themselves where the majick comes from, they are packed full of active ingredients such as essential oils, xanthophylls saponins and caretonoids; The Calendula flower extracts then combine beautifully with the other ingredients to create a restoring protective screen and produce what we think, is a wonderfully textured salve that you’ll just love to use.


Organic extra virgin olive oil (Olea europaea), doubley infused with organic Calendula flowers (Calendula officinalis), organic Beeswax (Cera alba) and organic shea butter (Butyrosopermum parkii), Tocopherol (Vitamin E). Thats it.

Taking the beautiful backdrop of the Sussex Downs as my inspiration, it is but a short journey of revelation before you come to realise how much more healing energy & rejuvenating power can be found in the humblest wild plant growing in your own neighborhood, than there is to be found in any chemical pill, petroleum laced cosmetic or synthetic mimicry of the natural.

Humans evolved to be in harmony with our environment, we knew which plants and flowers could help us with our ailments and improve our well being. In return we respected our environment, took only what we needed and lived in harmony.
That was then.

I started Helping Herb, to help me, literally wake up from the hypnotic grip of our consumer culture and to begin my own journey of re-discovery, to learn about and share with others traditional knowledge of herbal remedy making and to use plants, herbs and other natural ingredients wisely for health, hearth and happiness.

Every day I learn something new about the amazing way that plants interact with us on all levels and I am saddened that so much has already been forgotten;  I am fortunate then to have been guided on this  journey by some very wise women, who still understand something of the ‘old craft’. This experience, combined with my own re-training in herbal medicine gives me hope that there is still time to preserve and pass down this precious knowledge.

With this in mind, I love nothing better than hand making small batches of salves, balms and other herbal goodies for my friends, family and valued customers, from the plants I grow in my garden, gather in the field or source responsibly from trusted suppliers.

 I really hope you find Helping Herb beneficial and enjoy using my products as much as I enjoy making them.
My Philosophy for Helping Herb:

To always use organic, natural and responsibly sourced ingredients, free from chemicals  preservatives and other ghastly things.

Everything is hand made with care in small batches to ensure the best quality.
Use the minimal amount of packaging  as possible, avoid plastic at all costs.
Never to use any ingredient that has been tested on animals.

Always be grateful for what nature and life provides.
