vibrant food for the skin
Calendula is in the marigold family. We grow calendula organically at our farm and hand harvest the blossoms at peak bloom. Flowers are dried, and then sun-infused into our carrier oils to extract the nurturing properties. Calendula is anti-inflammatory, rich in antioxidants and extremely soothing to delicate skin. Aside from stimulating regeneration, calendula oil can significantly boost the appearance of your skin. It can affect blood flow to the skin cells, provide antioxidant protection that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and ages spots, and even the visibility of scars. Calendula helps promote smooth, even-toned skin with a youthful glow. Gentle on sensitive skin.
Our red clover grows naturally at the farm, and we wildcraft blossoms from Spring into the early Fall. Red clover can be used to get radiant, healthy skin. Red Clover may slow the process of skin aging due to its estrogen-like effects and help to maintain youthful and vibrant skin. It also ensures appropriate skin thickness and healthy keratinization and vascularity of the skin.
Jojoba oil is a golden liquid wax that is produced from the seed of the plant Simmondsia Chinensis. Native to the hot, dry regions of southern Arizona and California, it was frequently used by Native Americans as a plant medicine for all its many benefits. Jojoba seed oil is highly absorbable with virtually no scent. It delivers maximum moisturization; perfect for sensitive, mature and even oily skin as it helps repair, balance and hydrate.
Evening Primrose is native to North America and earned its name from the night blooms of the plant. Evening Primrose Oil is made from the cold-pressed seeds of the plant. The oil contains Vitamin C, GLA and other fatty acids. It is very gentle, anti-inflammatory, boosts circulation and helps awaken tired skin and eyes. The oil also has comforting properties that can soothe redness associated with acne and other skin irritation.
We use unheated local raw honey from small sustainable apiaries in our products.The beekeepers treat their hives with great care, and mindfully harvest the honey. Raw honey maintains all the enzymes, royal jelly and propolis that are eliminated when heated and processed. Using only raw honey in our products gives you the total benefit available from this nectar of our powerful little pollinators. Honey is naturally antibacterial and full of antioxidants. It is clarifying, and extremely moisturizing and soothing; so it helps boost your complexion and makes your skin glow.
Witch hazel is an extract from the leaves and bark of the North American shrub Hamamelis Virginiana. It has a long history in various folk medicinal treatments and has been used to fade blemishes and soothe and tone skin. Astringent and anti-inflammatory, witch hazel is excellent as a toner in your skin care routine.
We use many different essential oils in our formulas. Each one is pure therapeutic quality, and has specific indications for certain skin conditions. We take great care in sourcing only ethically and sustainably harvested oils for use in our products. Although they all smell divine, and certainly will lift your spirits, the blends we use are chosen specifically to assist your skin in looking and feeling its best.
The flower essences in our formulas are hand crafted by the founder. Most of the essences are created from regional flowers from the Alpine Forests and High Deserts of the Rocky Mountains. Other essences are made from flowers grown right on our farm. Great care is taken in the crafting of these essences to bring you the highest vibrational alchemy and medicine of the blossoms, and in greatest respect for the plant. Only a small amount of blossoms are needed to make the Mother Essence, which is then diluted into stock bottles to supply us throughout the year.
Hemp is the HERO INGREDIENT in all of our products. The benefits of hemp reach far and wide in the spectrum of health. Hemp is in the cannabis family, but is very low in THC. By law, hemp must contain less than .3% THC. THC is the plant compound in cannabis responsible for the psychotropic feelings associated with its use. Unlike its close relative, marijuana, which is typically bred to be high in THC; the only thing “high” in our hemp products is the level of rich essential fatty acids and other plant compounds, including cannabidiol.
Hemp Seed Oil: The fats in the hemp seed oil we use perform brilliant effects on the skin to help remove dead skin cells, leaving you glowing. Hemp seed oil penetrates and lubricates skin cells but does not clog pores. It is an excellent anti-inflammatory, and helps balance sebum production. Hemp seed oil is also high in linoleic acid, which soothes dry patches, blotchy skin, inflammation, redness and itching.
Hemp Extract: We use nourishing and balancing whole-plant, full spectrum hemp extract. We prefer to use the whole plant to maintain all the original compounds that work together as nature intended. We never use isolates. CBD fights free radicals and is anti-inflammatory making it an excellent choice for skin care. You can find the amount of CBD listed on our individual product labels. When applied topically, cannabidiol binds to the CB2 receptors near the skin’s surface, activating your endocannabinoid system. Endocannabinoids are natural signals in your body that help maintain homeostasis by detecting and regulating things like hunger, pain, mood and memory. Replenish and activate your endocannabinoid system.
