Our Super Herbs
Here at Aunty Amy’s, our herb champions are found locally in the foothills of the Yarra Valley. Each of our formulas were developed for the needs of our own family, and our herbs were grown in our own Herb Garden or wild crafted from local bush land near our home.
Meet our super herbs!
Probably the most recognized and loathed flower in the world, dandelion has gotten a bad rap from gardeners, farmers and lawn lovers. Instead of trying to rid our fields of little yellow Dandelions, we embrace this super herb, as a nutrient rich salad green, diuretic and liver cleanse. Topically, the flowers are especially treasured for their analgesic (pain-relieving) properties, making them an excellent addition to our balms for sore muscles or other aches and pains. They’re also traditionally used in preparations to heal rough chapped skin, keeping skin soft and smooth or to combat aging of the skin. Our original ingredient, Dandelion is found in our Aches & Pains Balm, Baby Balm and Monthly Soothe Balm.
