Welcome and thank you for visiting my store!
Here's a little about who we are and what we do. Our primary focus is raising and preserving heirloom crops and growing herbs for medicinal uses to blend in with our all natural soaps, salves and bath salts. The herb calendula is used in all of my herbal products that are made here locally
. Calendula is very healing and is considered to be an anti-fungal, anti-viral and ant-bacterial herb. It is an effective treatment for most minor skin conditions. It is also detoxifying and helps with inflammatory problems.
All of the herbs that are used in our products are either grown here by us, purchased locally from other farms that grow their crops naturally, or purchased from another organic and /or fair trade source
. All of our vegetables and herbs are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides, with a firm belief that things should be grown the way nature intended and not exposed to harmful chemicals that have long lasting, damaging effects on us as well as our environment. ( for more information on harmful crop chemicals please visit www.beyondpesticides.org )
. Promoting healthy living and self-sufficiency is our goal. The seeds that we offer for sale are grown by us and are of an heirloom , open-pollinated, naturally grown, non-g.m.o. variety.
The jewelry and art decor are a combination of Western and Native American design.
When adding a name to my business there was no question as to what it would be. Old YellowHorse Gifts is named after a real " old yellowhorse"( palomino), who represents strength , courage and a strong will to enjoy life despite being 32 years old and trying to beat cancer. This horse is all heart. In all of the years of trail riding I don't believe he ever looked back at what was behind him, he always looked forward with anticipation as to what could be down the road ahead of him. He is a symbol of hope, strength and perseverance and will forever be our "team mascot".
Thank you for visiting us !
