Hips and Haws Recipe

Hips and Haws Recipe

Rosehips (Rosa canina) and Hawthorns (Crataegus monogyna) are in abundance here in West Cork, one of our favourite family recipes at this time of year is to make 'Hips and Haws' a traditional remedy (and delicious one too) for keeping colds and flu's at bay.

Borage

Borage

Borage, commonly known as starflower, is primarily grown as an oilseed crop due to the high gamma-linoleic (GLA) content of the oil.   GLA is an omega-6 essential fatty acid with proven anti-inflammatory benefits, which is why we use it in our award-winning multi-purpose oil here in Modern Botany. 

Flax

Flax

Flaxseed oil has one of the highest plant sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which are essential for healthy skin and hair which is why we use it in our award-winning multi-purpose oil here in Modern Botany.

Arnica

Arnica

Arnica montana is one of the natural extracts that we use in our award-winning multi-tasking oil for its healing and anti-inflammatory benefits.  It is traditionally used for bruising. 

Chamomile

Chamomile

We make sure we only use the best quality ingredients in our Modern Botany products. In our multi tasking oil we use the highest quality Roman Chamomile extract. Traditionally chamomile is used for its lenitive (calming) properties.
