There was a historical documentary last night about our ancestors in this great country, and the daily perils they endured in the wilderness. Ever wonder how they tamed the discomfort of skin inflammation or irritation? We know they dealt with the same chapped and exposed skin as we have.
Today, our world offers many choices, so many that it is difficult to sift through the options. Often, multiple medicinal interventions exist for a single ailment. How do we know if they are effective and safe?
Lets talk about healing. There is healing that ends with a cure, and its opposite of long-suffering, skin conditions, that seem to heal and then worsen. Many people live with chronic skin problems every day of their lives.
In today’s blog, we are discussing Psoriasis, Eczema and Dermatitis (sensitive skin) conditions. This family of skin troubles lingers, flares, and then settles down to stay, and the cycle repeats. Sound like you or someone you care about?
Our APOTHECARY line is something you should know about.

If you suffer from Psoriasis or Eczema, there is concern about the long term use of prescription and OTC steroids. Sensitive skin is a similar skin problem, in so far as it stems from an inflammatory response. Experiencing Sensitive Skin may seem less severe a condition, than its relatives, however, an individual still deals daily with its associated discomfort, discoloration and irritation. What’s the answer?
Chickweed is consider as a weed by most; not so at Meadowlake Farm. We know it as a powerful anti-inflammatory with non-steroid like properties. This little gem is a powerhouse of comfort and we blend it with our raw honey and other herbal choices, rosemary, calendula, and chamomile.
Our customers return for these products repeatedly and thank us for making them. Why? They repurchase because they experience comfort and relief. Simply, they work.
