Homemade health products
Love and deep gratitude to the late Malcolm K Harker M.H.d, my teacher and an inspiration who passed away December 2017. He wanted to teach others the sacredness and beauty of traditional herbal medicine. His teaching was generous and filled with love. I was studying towards his diploma course and use his teaching manual as a guide now. I completed his Certificate in Traditional Herbal Medicine in 2014.
Made fresh from the Poppy field. Each blend is made intuitively and in connecting with the plants who give themselves for healing, so they may vary from the ingredients listed. Please contact me and ask what is available. I will then let you know what is on hand and how we may come to a private agreement.
In LIGHT of world events, I am focusing on the future with private and agreed upon exchange rather than monetary payment. Let's connect and see how we may help each other out this way.

"I love the magnesium body butter, great for period pain and bites and just lovely on the skin, some great products" Lisa
Poppy's beautiful magnesium butter is the best kept secret for a wonderful sleep. I was really struggling to get a good night's rest, tossing and turning for hours on end, but from the first night I used the butter I eased into a nice, deep sleep. The benefits have been twofold, because I also use it on my 2-year-old who has now started sleeping right through to the morning without waking most nights. So not only do I sleep more soundly, I'm woken less frequently. We love our bedtime routine of rubbing the butter on our bellies. It's the best. Thanks so much Poppy! Judy
Kawakawa, plantain or kanuka, organic olive oil and beeswax. Pure essential rosehip oil. Either clear quartz or rose quartz energy and earth grid seed crystal energy.
For blemishes, face and lips.
Treat infections with it’s anti-microbial properties. For inflamed skin, e.g., eczema, psoriasis and skin rashes. I have found it can clear skin infections. I suggest applying it as soon as redness occurs to prevent infections growing. Always use sparingly at first. Apply more as the body agrees to it.
"It has helped to clear up a little girls eczema and rashes. That day her skin was looking a lot better." Medea
"The kawakawa lives in my handbag and rectified a heat rash or possibly hormonal rash underneath my arms a couple weeks ago in about 3 days." Iti
Kūmarahou, plantain, olive oil, beeswax, pure essential rosehip oil
To rejuvenate skin, rub lovingly and gently on to itches, inflamed skin and blemishes.
According to my teacher, the late Malcolm Harker, M.H.d., kūmarahou is beneficial for liver and blood cleansing, It purifies through the liver, gall-bladder, pancreas, bowel, skin and the lungs.
In my experience, when applied to the skin, it may heal what underlies it. I have treated small skin cancers and persistent blemishes on my face. It may cause a healing reaction and bring what is there to the surface, so if the skin breaks it may be healing. As skin absorbs matter into the body, it may also promote good health of other body organs. My suggestion is to use it sparingly at first and then apply more when your body agrees.
"This product has given me great results on my skin disorder. My dry itchy skin condition is now calm and not so itchy leaving it to heal naturally. I've been using it daily for 3 weeks and it's been great. The results are that I can use my hands without the skin condition holding me back. I recommend this product."

"Hi to everyone out there. I have been using the tūpākihi (tutu) balm I received from the Poppy field. I am most pleased with the relief it gives my swollen ankle.

Poppy's sunscreen is fantastic! Not only does or protect you from the sun, but also keeps your skin feeling really great with the lovely ingredients.
