About Us


Avid outdoor enthusiasts, my kids spent summers dealing with bug bites, poison ivy and rashes.  Skin sensitivities left few products on the market we could use so I began researching alternative natural products.  In 2012 I came up with "green stuff" as my kids names it.  A combination of plantain, yarrow and other healing plants that treated their skin conditions without harmful chemicals. After giving the product to friends and family for several years, many requests to purchase led to my decision to sell this great product.

Our Promise

All products are made using organic carrier oils.  The plants are sustainably harvested from areas not treated with pesticides or chemicals. The essential oils and add in products are also organic. 

Due to the nature of the products and time spent creating them, all products may not always be available.  The plants are infused into the oils for 4-6 weeks after harvest and drying.  The products are not rushed in any way.  Please  contact us for availability and pricing.  Chaga mushrooms are difficult to find, and best harvested in the fall.

What's in the products

The plants

Sustainably and lovingly harvested myself.  Plantain, lavender, jewelweed, violet, dandelion, yarrow, rose and sage.  Dried in the sun and then allowed to be immersed into our organic carrier oils for 4-6 weeks.

Chaga mushrooms

Also known as "king of medicinal mushrooms".  Grown on birch trees and sustainably harvested.  

Dried and seeped in organic oils for 4-8 weeks.  

Organic carrier oils

I use a combination of the following organic carrier oils.  The majority of the products are made using hemp oils.  We also use olive, sunflower, jojoba, and rosehip oils. 

Organic essential oils are added to some products to enhance the healing properties and to scent.

Organic bees wax and shea butters are used.


What people are experiencing

 A. B. of Berwick PA states:

"I have chronic dandruff on my scalp and face.  During the winter, my face flares up like a Christmas tree.  One day at work, my face started to become inflamed and irritated even after my steroid cream and Aveeno.  Melinda offered me this green balm to apply to my affected areas.  I was hesitant at first due to my skin issues.  Within 5 minutes of applying the green stuff, the inflammation started to subside and my face was moisturized throughout a 7 hour shift.  Melinda's other lotion is amazing on my face, hands, and feet while I sleep.  I'm hooked.  There's no going back.  I'm in too deep and you will too, friends!" 

R.S of Berwick PA stated:

"I use this on my whole family from spider bites to burns! It's amazing and Friday  on heat rash and it was gone in 15 minutes!"

Jana Wagner of Jana Wagner Animal Communications writes:

"Truly amazing products.  Everything irritates my skin so when Melinda offered me her oil mix to try I accepted.  I now exclusively use her oil mix in my roller bottles with my essential oils.  The reduction in redness, irritation and breakouts is wonderful.  My skin is actually  recovering instead of re-erupting.  I just bought the muscle run for my chronic lower back issues and started using it right away.  It smells amazing."
