Three Sisters Herbals
Long ago, when my first child was a baby, I was given a make-your-own-salve kit. I remember opening it up and feeling like the sun was shining right out of the box. Dried herbs, golden beeswax, little jars—I was in love. It was the gift of finding my true calling in life.
As a stay-at-home mom, I was already knee-deep in homemade baby food and cloth diapers and other natural options, which I had learned from my beloved mom. I was also moving beyond my heritage by exploring healing herbal remedies and homeopathy. Crafting natural skin-care products was an easy addition to our lifestyle.
Surprisingly, making salves soothed my body, eased my stress and relaxed my mind. It invigorated my creative side, and I began to experiment and design my own recipes. Powered by this inspiration, I researched and concocted until Magic Salve was born. I shared my creations with family and friends, asked for feedback and tweaked again. While pregnant with baby number three, the business of Three Sisters Herbals was also born.
We’ve designed and handcrafted our products with a family’s budget in mind. A majority of our products are multitaskers. Why have a cream for your face, a diaper cream and a body lotion? Magic Salve can do it all. One little jar has 25 different uses. Soothing Soak—an herbal bath tea bag—soothes muscles and injuries, eases postpartum body aches and relaxes away stress after a bad day. Our fan favorite, Bug Away, keeps those pesky flies, ticks and mosquitoes away naturally.
So what is in our products? Our Magic Salve and Wicked Magic Salve are olive oil infused with our special blend of organic herbs. This process supercharges the olive oil and gives it the medicinal qualities of the herbs, which helps reduce inflammation and promote healing. We then add pure, unbleached beeswax and organic essential oils and, of course, lots of love. This creates a simple, yet effective moisturizer, diaper cream or anything else you can imagine.
Our Germ Away line of oil blends, sprays and hand sanitizer are also powered by organic essential oils. Germ Away Oil Blend is another multitasker with numerous uses. The Surface Spray cleans surfaces in your home and office, and the Hand Sanitizer is crafted with organic aloe vera gel that keeps your hands smooth and soft while promoting good health when you’re on the go.
Our Bug Away Insect Repellent is a hand-blended formula of organic essential oils. It can be sprayed on strollers, tents, screen doors, socks and shoes and, of course, people. Bugs hate it, while people love its fresh, clean scent.
Three Sisters Herbals is a culmination of my love of traditional herbal medicine, creativity and family. We feel blessed as we continue to inspire an ever-growing family of chemical-free homes, and we are honored to be part of your journey to a healthier, happier lifestyle.
