Naturally occurring terpenoids and flavonoids help soothe inflammation when ingested as a tea or applied topically, promoting calm and wellbeing. Chamomile becomes bitter the longer it is steeped; steep for 3-4 minutes for a sweet appley taste. Fructans and terpenoids help soften the hair when applied as a rinse or infused in oil. Leftover tea may be chilled and used as a soaked, cold compress for puffy, tired eyes. Steep chamomile in simmering water, so as not to burn the flowers and to bring out the essential oils, before pouring into a relaxing bath. Chamomile hydrolate is useful in treating gum inflammation, making it an ideal remedy for teething infants. Hydrolate may also help fortify the nails and hair. Comes in a glass jar.

Efficiency is beauty at Heartburst Houseplant where owner Claire Schauble experiments with turning her home into a liveable nursery. She seeks to shorten the supply chain on plants by locally growing florals and houseplants indoors. Every sunlit spot in her home has been repurposed into small-scale farming space. Existing mother plants are trimmed, divided, pollinated, or otherwise propagated to produce new plants. The plant offspring is then individually maintained into fighting health for another plant lover to enjoy. Beautiful, tenderly loved plants make Claire’s heart feel like it's going to burst - in the best way. She takes distinct pleasure in sharing her appreciation for the natural world with every small plant she manicures and pots to perfection. In a zero waste initiative, Claire dries and sells the flowers she grows organically and incorporates them into sensory soaps as well. Dried flowers also serve as an environmentally friendly alternative or additive to conventional dyes, skincare, remedies, decor, and garnishes. 50% of sales from the Heartburst Houseplant Pop-Up will go to Outdoor Afro. Outdoor Afro is the nation’s leading, cutting edge network that celebrates and inspires Black connections and leadership in nature.
