Miranda Adams’ day job is as violinist and Assistant Concertmaster with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and despite the musical fulfilment she gets from this, playing the violin is punishing on her body, especially the neck and shoulders. This, plus a weakness for migraines and some minor skin cancer issues led Miranda to begin making her own chemical-free muscle balms, skin healing balms and sunscreens, right there in her kitchen.
The herbs are grown on the property or bought from organic sources, infused in oil and mixed with beeswax to create balms. The sunscreens use non-nano zinc oxide (non whitening once rubbed in).
Miranda is inspired by the ancient traditional power of herbs such as calendula, kawakawa and lavendar to heal many skin conditions such as rashes, ecxema and acne, also comfrey, mint, arnica and ginger for muscular pain.
It is the hope of Ranchorama Remedies that everyone who uses their products does so because they are chemical and preservative free and cannot do any harm, only benefit the user.
