100% ORGANIC NATURAL SKINCARE
We developed and produce a unique collection of natural and organic skincare products made with sustainably-grown and wild-foraged medicinal plants and herbs grown right here on our Fallston, Maryland property. Each product is made with love in small batches and is carefully tested for safety and efficacy.
WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PLANTS
Conventional skincare products, even many that are more "natural" than most, generally contain ingredients that, at best, do nothing for your skin, and at worst, harm your skin and put your general health at risk. Preservatives, stabilizers, coloring agents, chemical fragrances and other potentially harmful ingredients, as well as a lot of water, fill these products in order to make them easy to use, shelf-stable for years, and in forms and colors that we've become used to. Not only can many of these chemicals harm your skin, but they are absorbed into your bloodstream and can cause other health problems as well.
Our 100% natural and organic skincare products contain nothing but ingredients that benefit the skin. They do require a bit of a shift in your skincare routine, don't look like the products you've used before, and require a bit of practice in order to perfect their use. But with this shift comes a myriad of benefits that not only free you from using harmful ingredients but are also more concentrated, leaving out the 70% water content of conventional creams and lotions which means you can use about 70% less product. They are made only from skin nourishing and healing herbs, natural cold-pressed oils, raw beeswax, vegetable glycerin, vitamin E, and other carefully chosen ingredients. All of the materials used in our skincare products have been scientifically proven to benefit the skin in different ways, helping to restore skin's elasticity, clarity, texture, health and vitality. These ingredients calm irritated skin that has suffered from the effects of years of harmful products, detox and desensitize your skin, and are kinder to our earth.
THE FACE BALM
Deeply moisturizing facial balm with anti-inflammatory and skin-clearing herbs
Ingredients: olive, jojoba, hemp, flax seed, sunflower and pumpkin seed oils infused with: calendula flower, plantain leaf and seed, violet leaf and flower, witch hazel leaf and white willow bark; raw beeswax, glycerin, and vitamin E
Directions: after cleansing, dry your hands while leaving your face wet. Scoop out a small amount of balm (about ⅓ of what you normally use of a commercial face cream) and with your fingertips, glide the balm over your face. Gently massage into your skin to emulsify the oils with the water for about one minute. Allow to air-dry.
1 oz tin: $40
THE ACHES & PAINS BALM
A cooling, soothing balm for sore muscles and joints. Comfrey and arnica have been used for centuries to reduce mild to moderate pain. Essential oils of rosemary, spearmint, eucalyptus and tea tree combine to produce a cooling effect on the skin to provide immediate relief while the herbs penetrate the skin to the sore muscles, tendons and ligaments beneath.
Ingredients: olive oil infused with comfrey leaf and arnica flower; raw beeswax, vitamin E and essential oils of rosemary, spearmint, eucalyptus and tea tree
Directions: massage into skin over sore body parts. This balm can be used on either dry or wet skin.
1 oz tin: $25
THE BODY BALM
Clarifying and moisturizing aromatherapeutic after-bath balm with soothing anti-inflammatory herbs
Ingredients: hemp, olive, flaxseed, sweet almond and sunflower oils infused with: lavender flower, spearmint leaf, rosemary leaf, lemon balm leaf, plantain leaf and seed, and violet leaf and flower; raw beeswax, glycerin, vitamin E and essential oils of lavender, rosemary and spearmint
Directions: after bathing, leave your skin wet but dry your hands. Apply to the skin, scooping out small amounts and smoothing over skin one section at a time. Massage into skin vigorously to emulsify with the water and allow to air-dry (skin can be patted down gently with a towel if time does not allow for a full air-dry).
2 oz tin: $50
THE CALMING BALM
A soothing, anti-inflammatory balm for irritated skin, bug bites and eczema. Plantain, a common yard "weed," was used by native peoples as an anti-itching aid--it was chewed into a paste and applied to the inflamed area. Other wild-foraged medicinal herbs contribute to reducing inflammation, calming itching, and comforting unhappy skin.
Ingredients: olive, hemp and flaxseed oils infused with: plantain leaf and seed, violet leaf and flower, deadnettle flower and chickweed flower; raw beeswax, vitamin E and essential oils of lavender, spearmint and tea tree
Directions: apply to any irritated skin on the body (do not use balms with essential oils on the face) and massage in. Especially effective on mosquito bites when applied as soon as possible after being bitten; useful for any unhappy, irritated or inflamed skin that is not an open cut or sore
