Emollient roots and finely ground grains protect irritated skin while providing gentle exfoliation to slough off dead skin. Many of the soothing plant properties from the polysaccharides are activated by water. These help reduce inflammation and strengthen the epidermis. This process also releases water soluble compounds like vitamins C to help brighten the skin and assist in collagen production and vitamin B to help the skin attain moisture. The result is clean, smooth skin that is better able to absorb serums and oils.
There is no addition of essential oils or florals so the scent is of natural roots and hint of matcha green tea. This helps those with sensitivities.
To Repair: dab small amount to cleaned cut, bite, rash, burn or breakout.
Overnight mask: last step in your skin care routine. Apply to damp skin to lock in moisture to slowly absorb through the night.
Clean: massage onto dry skin to dissolve dirt and makeup. Press a warm, wet washcloth onto skin to soften and clean the pores. Gently wipe off excess until no oil residue is left.
We source our raw, organic beeswax from a local beekeeper who focuses on pollinator stewardship practices by providing safety and diverse food sources. Their attentiveness for the bees ensure population growth and long term sustainability. The result of this care is honey and waxes that are vibrant and nutrient dense.
Working with local organic herb farms and ethical wildcrafters (including the maker herself) we are often able to buy fresh and process plants in-house to ensure ingredients are of the highest quality. All our infusions and tinctures are created in our apothecary using low and slow heat methods maintaining the integrity of the plant properties.
By using a majority of local and abundant ingredients we are able to provide an effective treatment that is cost inclusive while also being potent.
