Many plants and herbs have long been recognised for their healing effects. The specially selected Icelandic herbs in all Villimey products are hand-picked from the pure, untainted environment of the West Fjords.
From a young age Adalbjorg Thorsteinsdottir, or Alla as she is better known, was inspired by the mosaic of flowers and wild herbs that scatter the fields around Iceland’s beautiful and remote West Fjords. It was the beginning of a lifelong relationship with herbs and their natural healing powers.
Villimey started out as a hobby at the kitchen table over twenty years ago. Today it is a thriving cottage industry, its lovingly formulated salves largely derived from traditional Icelandic remedies, passed on by word of mouth from generation to generation over hundreds of years.
