Farmasea is a family business founded on appropriate technology principles and a commitment to organic methods. Wildcrafting of plants and gathering stormcast seaweeds is done in a manner that respects sound stewardship and harvesting practices. Processing includes passive solar drying and/or infusion with certified organic carrier oils. We harvest crops only when the highest content of active ingredients may be expected. As members of the American Botanical Council, we do our best to stay current with the monographs as it relates to peer-reviewed methods. Throughtout our travels in the Americas, Asia and County Donegal, Ireland, we have been taken by the dedicated simplicity of health practitioners working in their communities.
Herbs have been used as health aids throughout recorded history. The basic recipe(s) for creams and salves date back to the Greek physician Galen in the second century. Indeed, until mass-produced cosmetics became widespread in the 20th century, most products were concocted at home from herbs and other natural ingredients. We have attempted to reflect these ancient traditions.
We have made every effort to ensure that the ingredients we have used in these products are from natural sources and where possible, from our organic homestead.
Seaweeds and unicellular algae are used because they are one of nature’s purifiers and draw out impurities from the skin. Removing dead cells from one’s skin cleanses and refreshes, enhancing cellular renewal. This toning effect boosts circulation. Rich in amino acids, vitamins and minerals these aquatic nutrients nurture the body as it is enveloped in this uniquely soothing formula.
Some of the applications where our salves and liniments have helped include an after shave gel, minor skin dis-orders, foot massage/reflexology and strained deep tissue and muscles.
These products have been hand crafted and packaged with care and a modest understanding of what it may take to help rejuvenate one’s skin. Please take the time to drop us a note and comment on our products.
Store in a dark, cool place to ensure maximum shelflife .There is a small chance that a particular herb may cause an allergic reaction for some, so it is best that you “try a dab” on the inside of the forearm.
