Co-Distillations were chosen by our distiller because the plants live closely in-community. They are partners in micro climate and nutrient absorption. They react synergistically, support one another and work together intentionally. Thus combining the benefits and creating unique chemistry found in each plant.
Pinion Pine Pinus edulis Indicated for bladder, kidney and rheumatic infections as well as for respiratory inflammation and reduction of excess mucous Contains limonene which is anti-turmoric.
High in vitamin C and sucrose which is found in abundance in the needles. Also high in sulphur supporting connective and muscle tissue.
Great Western Sage Artemesia tridentata GW Sage is a dominate species throughout the Western U.S. plant community. Being of the Artemisia family (worm woods), this plant is a known vermifuge. Indigenous cultures have used GW Sage for coughs, colds, headaches, stomach aches, fevers, internal bleeding and to relieve pain during child birthing. Poultices of wet leaves applied to bruises reduce swelling. GW Sage is also used for “smudging”, or ceremonial purification.
Rabbit Brush Crysothamnus nauseosus This plant has been traditionally used for intestinal worms, clearing thick yellow mucous. Indicated for coughs and colds. As it grows closely with Sage Brush, these two work well together. Rabbit Brush is also quite dominant throughout the Western U.S. community. It is currently being tested as a nematocide and for anti-malarial properties.
