We are proud to use only fresh ingredients of the best sources, and certified organic or ethically wildcrafted herbs. Everything is made in small batches with love and attention to detail. This ensures a freshness and degree of quality in our herbal products that separates small, independent herbal medicine makers such as Gillian's Herbs from the large, corporate, herbal products manufacturers.  The result is the best for your body.
Custom orders are welcomed.

We are delighted to announce the latest NEW Products and IMPROVED ones too. Please note that i welcome any custom orders (especially custom tinctures, at no extra cost) to suit your individual needs.  I love formulating, I just can't help but create, tweak, fiddle and fuss about with all these luxurious ingredients at my finger tips.  This season, the creative juices were flowing and here are some of the highlights:

ULTIMATE Skin Food Facial Oil: Repairs, Restores, Revitalizes. The Ultimate Skin Food oil is designed for extreme dry skin, scars, acne and acne scars, eczema, psoriasis, blemishes, premature aging, sun and wind damage, burns, etc.  Featuring scar-healing Kukui, Tamanu, and Macadamia Nut Oils and Rosehip Seed Oil, and lightly scented with 100% pure essential oils. Tamanu oil for example has a unique capacity to promote the formation of new tissue, which accelerates wound healing and the growth of healthy skin. This blend can be used anywhere on the body, but is gentle enough for the delicate skin of the face.

Vitality Tonic Tincture: This blend was inspired by a 50+ year old acquaintance who requested a formula that would give him more "pep", more life force, and ultimately more sexual energy...without being unnecessarily stimulating.  Containing the "grounding", root energy of Ashwagandha, Astragulus, Codonopsis, Eleuthero, Burdock and Dandelion, this formula helps provide vital energy, especially for anyone over 40 or anyone in need of a healthy boost from the ground up.  This tonic is indicated for tiredness, lack of sexual energy, lack of concentration, exhaustion, weak immune systems, sluggish digestion and liver, and so on.

Shea Butter Lip Tint: Yes, tint!  A lovely whisper of red for your lips, from the infused oil of Alkanet Root ~ this is not lipstick, will not stain any clothing, or leave lines on your lips as the day goes on...just a pleasant touch of colour added to the improved Shea Butter Lip Balm.  Available in Peppermint & Tea Tree, or Lemongrass & Lime, or Unflavoured.

Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) Tincture: Mainly used to regulate hormones, menstrual periods, and reduce menstrual cramping, Dong Quai is also known to detoxify and nourish the blood and liver.

Body Balm (formerly known as Belly Balm): So many of our customers wanted a rich, healing balm for the whole body, so we added even more yummy ingredients and changed it's name to suit everyone's needs.  The Body Balm is especially good for healing and preventing stretch marks on pregnant bellies, but can be used anywhere on the body for any healing purpose, or just as a luxurious body butter. Contains the incredibly healing oils of the Tamanu nut (see above) and Rosehip Seed as well as Calendula.

Sore Muscle Salve- Improved! Now contains the healing powers of Cayenne oil to pony up with Arnica and St. John's Wort.  Cayenne is famous for stimulating circulation thus bringing energy and healing to any areas in pain and/or inflamed from overuse, misuse, or injury.  Does not burn, really!

Fresh Air Mist: a special request that keeps getting re-ordered, a wonderfully scented blend of 100% essential oils of Grapefruit, Tangerine, Eucalyptus, Lime, Lemongrass, Rosemary, and Tea Tree.  This is a great alternative to non-natural (and unhealthy) air fresheners.  

Whole Body Health Tea - Improved!  I've added local Dandelion Root and certified organic Orange Peel to make this incredible healthy for the whole body tea even more delicious ~ great for cleansing and detoxifying without harsh laxatives, this tea works on the immune, lymphatic, adrenal, urinary, digestive and circulatory systems.

Soul Soother Tea  - Improved!  One of the more popular tea blends, I added one of my latest favourite herbs to make this even more soothing for the whole body, Ashwagandha, a herb that is wonderful for energy building, as a gentle sexual tonic, for treating tiredness, headaches from exhaustion, etc.

We continue to welcome CUSTOM ORDERS especially in the tincture blending department, so if you don't see a formula that suits your needs, or one with an ingredient you don't need or want, please contact us and we can create your personalized formula together.         

Gillian's Herbs is also pleased and tickled pink that our union with the Lillooet Wellness Centre is a growing success. The Lillooet Wellness Centre is a wonderful healing centre consisting of registered Massage Therapists, Myofascial Release therapists, counselling, spa-like facials, an infrared sauna, and more. Our products are featured in the Wellness Store, and Gillian is available for herbal consultations by appointment. For more information, please visit: lillooetwellnesscentre.ca.

With the warm welcome help of apprentices, and WWOOFers (search: Vast Mountain),  I continue to enjoy making herbal preparations for our customers, many of them loyal for over 15 years now. I am also proud to continue to insist on including our ingredients with every product's description, since I believe that sharing this information is more important to you and your health than keeping a "trade" secret is for me. I hope you enjoy visiting our site and seeing what we do. Please contact us should you have any questions, concerns or special requests...and if you are interested in apprenticing!  On a more personal note, check out our dream home in the making, a straw bale, post and beam home on an abandoned field being converted into a permacultural oasis, at vastmountain.ca

Herbal blessings, gillian
