    HISTORY AND FOLKLORE

     In medieval Europe, calendula was widely available and was known as “poor man’s saffron” as it was used to color and spice various foods, soup in particular. It was used not only to color foods, but also as a dye to color hair and to make butter look more yellow. Believed to be first cultivated by St. Hildegard of Bingen, an herbalist and nun practicing herbalism in the 11th century in present-day Germany, calendula is a mainstay in a variety of European historical herbal texts. A Niewe Herball, from 1578, by English botanist Henry Lyte states that calendula '… hath pleasant, bright and shining yellow flowers, the which do close at the setting down of the sun, and do spread and open again at the sun rising' referring to the flower's well-known propensity to open in the day and close at night or on overcast days.

    Nicholas Culpepper, a 17th-century botanist, herbalist, and astrologist, mentioned using calendula juice mixed with vinegar as a rinse for the skin and scalp and that a tea of the flowers comforts the heart. Astrologically associated with the sun and the fire element, calendula was believed to imbue magical powers of protection and clairvoyance, and even to assist in legal matters. Flowers strung above doorposts were said to keep evil out and to protect one while sleeping if put under the bed. It was said that picking the flowers under the noonday sun will strengthen and comfort the heart.

    Calendula was used in ancient times in India as well, and according to Ayurvedic healing principles is energetically cooling and has a bitter and pungent taste.

    And, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), calendula (called Jin Zhan Ju) is considered energetically neutral and drying and is used to support healthy skin.

    Traditionally, in North American indigenous cultures, it has been employed to combat the occasional upset stomach. Traditional use mirrors many of our contemporary applications of this plant. site:: mountainroaseherbs.com

Here are some quick tips for your hair and skin this winter: 

    1. SAY NO to hot showers.  I know we LOVE hot showers in the winter but it's actually horrible for your skin and hair.  The hot water pulls moisture from your hair and body....so turn the hot water down.

    Fall Tip! Shea Butter is Your Skin's Best Friend!

    Fall is here, 🍁🍂....summer humidity and moisture are GONE! We have to change our hair and skin routine. Skin is the largest organ, it protects us from microbes and the elements helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold. In the winter months, moisture leaves the air and dry bitter cold tends to set in! Drinking water & nourishing your body with Shea Butter will prevent dry, flaky ashy skin. Shea Butter is perfect for rough knees, elbows, and feet! Why is Shea Butter so super-duper AWESOME?!  Shea Butter is rich in essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamin E, and D, provitamin A and allantoin. All these are natural and make Shea butter a superfood for your skin (and hair), it also has the following amazing benefits: 

    • Wrinkles, fine lines and scars repairing
    • Antioxidant
    • Anti-inflammatory
    • Skin-strengthening
    • Skin protecting
    • UV protecting

    Welcome to the Family Bree!

    "I would love to be a KBNatural Ambassador because I've tried a lot of hair products for naturally curly hair that caused my hair to be so dry. Some products were my absolute favorite until they either changed the formula and discontinued products. Now I only use Koils by nature products. Your products made my scalp very happy and not itchy and dry. Thank you so much for all the smell good & feel good hair and body butter and also the shealoe leave-in conditioner. I really hope you would consider me as an ambassador of your awesome products. Can't wait to order more products during black Friday."

    Thanks,
    Brilleasha Moore (aka Bree)
