I tried your rose petal facial cleanser and juniper bliss face butter and I must say, you are a true artist/wizard of the herbal world. As I was massaging the oil cleanser onto my face, I couldn't stop there. I went on to my neck and shoulders and then ran it through my hair. Today, working in the rain and mud, my hair was so beautifully curly without being frizzy. I love the juniper butter even more than the tangerine if that is possible. Thank you for the care and love you put into your products. I am one of your biggest fans! ~ Malissa N.

For those of you who don't know, I had skin cancer and the doctors treated me horribly (nice to talk with and beautiful offices but did not do all they could have, by a long ways) so I have a huge scar. I have other places that concern me. The ones I have been putting herbs on are mostly gone. Now to figure out how to do the ones on my back. This is the real deal folks. ~ Jennifer S.

Jamie, last night I used your facial bliss on my face and this morning my face was not burning. I have not been able to use anything on my face except petroleum jelly and that worried me. What the heck, putting petroleum on me. I was amazed at the way it melted and soaked into my skin. I am so allergic to everything!!!  That was the other amazing thing. I didn't have to rush to wash it off.  Also used the salve on my arms. Yea! No itching this morning and the worst spots are already healing. Thank you again and again.   You are a miracle worker.  ~ Gloria C.

I live in coastal New England we have particularly harsh winters that are famous for cold winds that leave your face chapped and worn like old leather. I have used both the Jasmine Face Butter and the Lavender Face Butter to keep my face moisturized and to combat the dry skin resulting from the cold. I have combination skin and have had no issue with the butter making me break out, this is the most perfect product that I have found  … it smells amazing and makes my skin feel super soft. I also love this product in the summer, it is an excellent year round product and with no harsh chemicals! Amazing!— Shannon M.

Got my facial bliss in the mail today and HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT IT'S EVEN BETTER!?!? Love it. - Dana

I love your products !!!!! I love everything about the face butter. Reminds me of homemade face mask my mom used to make for me using cream .. thank you so much ! You have a customer for life I am amazed how little I use to put on my face and neck .. thank you for telling me in advance how to apply it .. so useful. Keep making amazing natural skin care products Jamie! ~ Sonali S.

Hi! My husband and I were at the Agroforestry Symposium yesterday and tried one of your salves on a burn that I got just before coming. It really helped me to be more comfortable for the rest of the afternoon! Thanks so much! ~ Jessica H.

Haven't had a herpes (cold sore) in years, but broke out last weekend with a    b i g   one on upper right lip.  Put Abreve on it and ended up the next morning with a huge mess.  Washed the lip with diluted hydrogen peroxide and used Monarda Salve you sent me last Christmas.  This has been the quickest I've ever had one heal.  And, no cracking & bleeding.  If I didn't thank you before .....   I sure do now .... Thank you.  I've been using the different salves all year, but never thought to let you know how good they are.  But then, you know that already.    The Missouri Herbs lady is Jamie, isn't it?  Do let her know I am enjoying her handiwork.  Such a little goes a long way.  ~ Betty P.

I bought this after my friend found you guys in the middle of nowhere. I LOVE it. I also bought the facial bliss face butter and they are the best things. I've never struggled with acne before even in my teens, but now in my 20s I've been having problems with stress acne and this has just done wonders. I don't need to keep applying moisturizer to my face or to keep using face wipes with alcohol and salicylic acid that dry my face out. It's PHENOMENAL to take off makeup with too. And I love that I can count the number of ingredients on my hands and pronounce each one! LOVE LOVE LOVE. (Shipping was fast too! Thank you!) ~ R. P. 

~~~~
I bought this in tangerine along with the facial cleanser and BOY is it such a great pick me up! The citrus scent wakes me right up as it MELTS right into my skin. A friend didn't believe me that it wouldn't be greasy and she tried it and now she's buying it! I never bought into that whole brightening you skin lie that most products throw around, but this truly does! Sincerely, A new loyal customer. ~ Rae

My 3rd tub. I won't use anything else, ever again! ~ Anna B.

I simply can't tell you how much I love this butter. I use the tiniest bit and I can feel my skin drink it it. I am completely spoiled now - nothing else I have tried compares. Thanks Jamie as always for the unbelievably quick shipping and amazing product. ~ Serra HQ

~~~~

So, so good! Such a great, smooth, lovely butter. Super fast shipping, butter came in a very sturdy container, packed with upcycled/recyclable packing material, and even included a free sample of a new butter. Awesome seller - could not recommend Jamie or her products more highly! ~ S. H.

(Re; the face butter) Wonderful cream. Used it all over on body. Intensely moisturizing. Would order the large size next time. ~ Kirstin Clauson

~~~
(re; Lavender face butter) This is my ALL time favorite product of hers so far... The smell is amazing if you are a lavender person. I even use it on my English Bulldogs nose to keep it moist and because of the smell he loves it. I use it on any little accidents I have and every night before bedtime I put a few rubs under my nose and breathe it in until I fall asleep. I have found someone that knows how to really add the smell of fragrance of lavender to their products and I am not buying anywhere else. Thank you so much!!! She is so nice and the shipping is FAST. ~ Kenda Dougan

Jamie Jackson your rose body butter soothed my chapped hands and the scent is to die for ! It is most luxioriuos in every way ! Amazingly smooth as butter! ~ JoAnn Q.

That vanilla lip balm smells JUST like a sugar cookie--amazing it can smell sweet like that with no sweeteners at all in it--and it feels truly wonderful on my lips. Gryph likes the unflavored lip balm, says it feels good. ~ Cathie R.

I purchased a few things from you at Gypsy Caravan and have become a true believer.  Both my daughter and I fell in love with the facial bliss.  It's like herbal botox.  I have always looked younger than my age but I literally had a friend of ours that does make up for a major movie studio ask me if I had botox.  That is why I am excited about trying the cleanser.  With that being said, I need to purchase more ~ Lisa M.

"I absolutely love your tangerine butter! It keeps my face happy and healthy and the smell is amazing. I feel like a traitor admitting that I have to give serious LOVE to the Lavender butter. Over the past two years I have been under a lot of life stress and at a few times its overwhelmed me and caused my face to peel off. The first time my face had become transparent from skin loss and it was attacking my eyes making them swell shut and the itching was driving me crazy. I decided to use the lavender butter one morning and the itching stopped immediately. I spent three days battling with the lavender butter as my sword, cleaning and applying more every time the itching came back before the eye swelling stopped.  Within a week I had my face back! The itching and peeling was gone and evidence of healing had begun. After two weeks I went back to my beloved tangerine butter and life was good. When the next serious stress attack hit, I remembered the lavender butter and in three days I was better and kept my layers of skin. The butter and the scent all combine to heal and I am grateful for the love you put in your work." Barbie Rucker

I heard about oil cleansing about a year ago but never tried it. I don't know why, I guess I thought "what if my face gets worse?!". I've struggled with blemishes since having children, and I tend to have an oilier complexion anyway. I've started getting lines on my forehead, etc. I have these little white spots underneath my eyes. I have tried about every skin care line and company that promises to make it better and it didn't...and it was expensive. I always think natural is better because God gave us these herbs and plants and they should be able work better than man made chemical products. With that said, I've been using the cleanser and facial butter for 1-2 weeks and have noticed such a difference. The white spots are decreasing, my face does not get oily, my blemishes are better and my skin feels really good. The butter is not heavy feeling or looking and the smells of them all are wonderful. So happy to have stopped in your booth and tried your products. ~ Kylee F

Wow! That poke root stuff is the bees knees!!!! Thank you so much for all the hard caring work you spread to the world. A true savior.  ~ mark and jessica

~~~~~

(re: Dry Itchy Skin salve) This stuff is amazing! I would love to have it in a 4oz size due to the rate I'm using it at! I have a hot spot that always itches and if I itch, the thin skin gets even more irritated, so I've tried about 10 different products for it. Now I have one I love! ~ Alexx G. 

~~~~

I thought the whole oil thing was weird, but I am really loving it. After my face absorbs the oil, I'm oil free for the rest of the day. (unless I'm sweaty and working outside, but that's a threshold that no face cleanser can pass...or should. ;) ~ Katie Green

~~~~~

(re: the Dry Itchy Skin salve) Really works! So much better than the prescription creams, they did nothing and have side effects ~ Cathy B.

~~~~~

Jamie, I want to thank you again . . . the poke salve you gave me just addressed an issue that I'd been ignoring for probably 3 years now. a rough patch of skin had developed on my temple that wasn't going away, recently it turned into a sore that didn't heal. I had the thought to use that salve, and in a week the rough patch & sore were gone and the skin is soft and healthy.  Your work is priceless and I'm so grateful for you and your beautiful heart. ~ Trina Brunk

~~~~~

"Your Poke Root Salve is amazing! I have a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurative. It is a very painful and disfiguring condition. Doctors don't have a cure just pills, poisons, and surgeries I can't afford. My mom brought me some of your Poke root salve to try after it helped my dad with his HS.  I am so glad she did. It's the ONLY thing i treat my HS with now. When a sore starts popping up I apply the salve. I get immediate pain relief and In three days it's open and drains completely. It can take a couple weeks for a big one to completely heal but it heals instead of just draining and hurting all the time for months to years. I cannot go back to life without it. Nothing can ever happen to you because I really CAN NOT go back to the way things were. It was no good going through life without help or a cure. At least now I can treat it and win the battles. Thank you for your healing salve." With much love for your Butterfly Medicine,          Tracy Smith

Using your Belly Butter was such a wonderful experience through my entire pregnancy. My  skin glowed and I had 0 stretch marks. But even better than that, the moments spent massaging my belly with a product I knew was made with care and love helped me forge a positive connection with what was going on with my body. Post pregnancy has dried out my skin, so I'm ordering more!  ~ Dana H.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Missouri Herbs is wonderful! I have extremely sensitive skin and tend to break out very easily. I bought a sample size of the Tangerine face butter and within only a couple of hours, the breakouts on my face cleared up! AMAZING. That being said, I would highly recommend these products to anyone with sensitive skin. Very worth it. ~ Lindsey Gajeski

I met Jamie at a Baker Creek festival back a few months ago. I absolutely HAD to try her Jasmine face cream. For the first time I had a lotion that fulfilled the needs of my patchy combination skin and didn't make me feel greasy or top heavy. That same day my sister purchased some of Jamie's Dry Itchy Skin Salve for a chronic red itchy rash around her nose that she has had for several years. My sister too saw improvement as she never had with any product--herbal or otherwise. The redness lightened and the sensitivity all but disappeared before she ran out. My most recent success comes with Jamie's face butter. It has a lovely lavender scent that sits nicely without overpowering my sensitive nostrils. I decided to just use it everywhere as all of my skin tends to be rather dry. After one use my scaly elbows are smooth, the dry spots on my face are gone, and my legs are almost good enough for a shaving cream commercial! 

In case it isn't obvious I'm a forever customer for Jamie! :) -  Elyssa G.

I really can't get over your Skin Butter. Beginning in my mid-20's, as soon as the air got cold and dry, it was all I could do to keep the area right above my eyebrows and especially right between them from getting dry and flaky. Anything I used only worked for a couple hours So when I kiddingly called your butter "spackle", that's why. BUT for the first time in 30 years, here we are in the middle of winter, and that skin is perfect. Even if I miss a day or two, no problem! That stuff is a miracle. ~ Tina Sams, editor/ publisher The Essential Herbal Magazine

Tammy and I love your products and I'm raving to all my friends about it! It creates an awesome glow that no other product has been able to do for me. - Stephanie

We just had our first weed walk with Jamie Jackson. I told everyone I would report back afterwards to let you know how it went. We had a great time with Jamie today. We found her to be very informative and very professional. She was very generous with her time and knowledge. We covered many weeds today in a hands-on fashion and were given handouts so we could follow along with the information and review it again later. We had a blast and we learned a lot. We will be back to learn more and we would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn more about weed walks and wild medicinals. When we got home, we spent some time out in our yard, searching for plants that we learned about today. We were amazed to find so many that we had never noticed before. In a short time, we found Plantain, Mullein, Clover, Chickweed, and Juniper right in our own yard. Thank you, Jamie! We really learned a lot and appreciate your time and the information you shared with us today!-Mike Smith

Missouri Herbs:  Just wanted to say how much your Juniper Salve has helped me.  For the last 25 years I have had rough, scaley spots and a few larger lesions on my arms and face and even a couple on top of my head.  In the past I have had several of these burnt off by my dermatologist, who said they were pre-cancerous and caused by being out in the sun for most of my life.  Since using the Juniper Salve once a day for the last 3 months, my arms and face are no longer scaley and rough and the larger lesions have shrunk considerably.  Thank you so much for this great Product - Ken Pementel

Thanks so much for making the tangerine cream!  I love the product!  I also took your advice and started using the safflower oil on my face instead of soap and it's done amazing things!  I haven't used soap on my face since March (it's now November) when you suggested it! - Angi

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I just started using Jaime's MissouriHerb's "Dry Itchy Skin Salve" and I LOVE it!!!
I have a hot spot on my chest that has been bothering me for years. It itches much of the time, but the skin is thin there, so I don't want to scratch because I don't want to damage the tissue. I've tried Benedryl, oatmeal balm, Calamine, all types of hypoallergenic lotions, and steroid creams (one was prescription strength, even!). They all seemed to work for a little while (meaning maybe an hour, most a few minutes), but they didn't work long term. I decided to try Jamie's itch salve as a last ditch effort. I'm SO glad I did!!! I use it at the end of the day and let the herbs in it not only stop the itch, but more importantly KEEP working to heal the hot spot. God bless! - Alexx

I was attracted to the Plantain Salve when I used it  to heal my cuticles last year.  After a walk last weekend,  I realized I had been “chiggered."  I was itching all over my body!   I reached for the plantain salve and it immediately soothed my bites.   After a few applications, I stopped itching altogether.  It saved me the process of itching, lack of sleep, tearing my own skin, and healing uncomfortable welts and scabs.  Thank you!

Plantain salve is a staple for anyone choosing natural home healthcare.  I am particularly grateful that you offer a 4 oz. container! -  Char  M

I purchased some salve for arthritis last Sunday (ed note, 2 days ago) in Mansfield. I apply it at night to my hands before I go to bed. I want to tell you that I can already tell the difference in my hands when I wake up in the morning. My hands are not as stiff and tingling as they have been for a long time. I also apply it before I go to work and I believe that has helped with soreness when I am typing all day on a computer.
I just wanted you to know that I appreciate the information you gave me. I will purchase a larger container in May at the Baker's Creek event.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

The face cream is amazing. I have incredibly sensitive skin and mild rosacea and this cream calms and nourishes. And, the way it just melts as you warm it is luscious and feels like a super expensive product (I've tried them), but it's even better because it's locally produced, freshly made, no animal testing, nothing but good natural ingredients. Thank you Jamie!  -

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed you and your booth and products and information this past week end.  Your information and salve on breath massage was purposeful and timely and Iwill be sharing with my grown daughters.  You are correct in that we don't get the exercise like our ancestors did...  Thanks for speaking out and for having the courage to live your dream.  Blessings, - Deb D.

Thank you so much for showing and teaching us about the herbs on your property.  We really enjoyed ourselves.  It looked like we went on a good day due to all the rain we had this morning.

We fixed the herb you gave us for poison ivy.  My mom was quite surprised at how fast she was able to get relief from it.  She has not had to apply it yet today, there isn't any itching.  What is that herb called?  You told us but I didn't write it down.  This would be a "must-have" to place in the "medicine cabinet".  

Thanks again and you and your loved ones have a wonderful day! -   Anne Marie  

(Note: it was dried sweet fern made into a tea)

I just wanted to check in about the face cream.  First of all - I absolutely love it! My skin has literally never been better.  Second, I've been keeping it in the fridge and the texture is still perfect.  So basically it is seriously wonderful - thank you so so much- Serra

Hi   I love the cream!!!!   Have only used about half of the first jar. - Tena Davis

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

I just love the Plantain Salve!  I carry a purse size "sampler" with me all the time in my purse and my big jar stays on my desk.  This is truly one of the best and versatile products I have ever come across.  I work with my hands, knitting, crocheting, cleaning services, housework, garden and yard work.  It all takes its toll.  I use if for dry skin, torn cuticles, any kind of cut, scrape or scratch. It helps it heal so fast.  It is also wonderful to take the itch out of chigger, mosquito and flea bites.  I only have to apply it once to a bite and then I literally forget that it is there.  This salve is nicknamed the "Green Band-aid" and that is a very apt description. -  Georgia of Ruffle Me Mama

From Mother Earth News, Star homesteader of the year award: 

Falcon Creek Farm Missouri (by Karen Janes)

 

Last March I took classes to become certified in permaculture design. I had done some organic gardening in my backyard, and for the last two years volunteered at a large community organic garden, but I wanted to learn more. And I did. I learned so much in the permaculture certification classes that I thought I was quite possibly exposed to every permaculture idea that exists.

Shortly after becoming certified, like-minded people started to come my way.  My son, who lives in the Mark Twain Forest, introduced me to his neighbors, Jamie and Jeffery. He took me to visit their homestead, Falcon Creek Farm. At the entrance we met Jeffery's mother driving their solar-panel-converted golf cart. She escorted us about a quarter mile down the drive where we found Jamie and Jeffrey, at work of course. Jamie graciously took time out of her busy day to give me a thirty-minute tour of a few of their 30 acres (zones 1, 2, 3, and 4 in permaculture jargon).  I was excited to see dozens of the permaculture ideas I had recently learned put into practice, including rows of hugelkultur beds, natural pest control through companion planting, expanding food forests of grapes; fruit trees, and nut trees surrounded by supporting perennial tree guilds, and even a ginkgo biloba tree. They have built no-till raised gardens and an earth contact home with an earthen floor and living roof for Jeffery's mother. Large solar panels supply all their needed power and drinking water from the spring is pumped up the hill with a solar pump. I remember wishing I had brought my notebook as I was given more new information in 30 minutes than I could remember. The family is now completely off the grid and are in the process of building another passive solar earth-sheltered house with a green roof for themselves. Currently the soil is being built up with rye and clover and will eventually be transitioned to sedum, strawberries and chives. 

Two people who came from the work background of a software tester and a musician have accomplished all of this within less than three years. Both Jeffrey and Jamie are totally self-taught, mostly through books and videos.  In addition to these many accomplishments, Jamie shares all she's learned (a lot through trial-and-error) on a beautiful blog. She documents the experiences of their "journey to create an intentionally simple and self-sustaining homestead in Missouri." Jamie hopes to someday be able to share all her knowledge with anyone who is interested in learning a new way of living through hands-on teaching at their homestead.
