Here on the Northern California Coast, the harvesting of our Lavender, Calendula, Chamomile, Comfrey and Rose Geranium are now on the drying racks. The distillation of Clary Sage, Rosemary, Rose Geranium, Lavender, Tea Tree, & Chocolate will produce an abundance of beautiful hydrosols for the upcoming year.
While joining our friend in his organic vineyard, we harvested Pinot Noir grapes, he for good cheer and KMH for inspiration in producing products from Pinot Noir grape skins & stems. The final product provides an abundance of resveratrol, and is rich in phytonutrient antioxidants.
At the end of the day our hands are tired, dry, cracked and worn, but we are grateful. In 1992, I created a product called “Protective Hand Crème” for Smith & Hawken, a high end gardening company. The formula that worked then is still one of our best sellers. Whether you are an avid gardener, professional chef or working in an office situation, this product can come to the rescue, as it came to ours that day.
