Herbal Facial Steam,
Even if you’ve been staying mostly inside during the COVID-19 outbreak and laying off heavy makeup, your skin may be acting out. Stress can be a trigger for skin issues, and we are certainly living in stressful times! Most of us may not be getting enough fresh air, have major changes in our eating & exercise habits, consuming more alcohol, as well as lack of or over sleeping. These all can contribute to changes in our skin. What better time than now to start a new skin care regime! We’re excited to have created this mature/dry skin collection, available for a limited time only.
Herbal Facial Steam ~ created with wildcrafted and sustainably sourced rose, chamomile, eucalyptus, lavender, lady’s mantle, rosemary, peppermint, dandelion, nettle, calendula, and patchouli leaf. These specific plants have been chosen for their anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, repairative, healing, calming and rejuvenating properties. Herbal steams are a wonderful, relaxing way to promote self care, with a ton of benefits. It boosts circulation and leaves skin clear and refreshed; the warmth from the steam helps loosen pores so dirt can come out and it revives tired skin. The heat encourages blood vessels to dilate which keeps blood flowing freely and breathing in aromatic herbs helps to sooth frayed nerves, promotes relaxation and reduces stress. Add a pinch to a bowl of boiled water, place the nose just above the water line, cover the head with a towel and steam for 10-20mins, allowing the pores to open to prep the skin to fully absorb the minerals and plants of a mask, exfoliant, or moisturizer afterward. Inhaling these plants can also reduce allergies, soothe tired eyes and sinus’, help clear and moisturize the airways and clear the mind of fogginess. If you wish to get further use of the water you can save it and add it to bath water creating a tea to soak in.
Face Wash ~ an infusion of herbs and botanicals, repairative neem, detoxifying turmeric & activated charcoal, with carrot seed extract and clarifying essential oils. Extremely detoxing yet nourishing, this undiluted wash is sure to remove the deepest grime. Only a very small amount is needed as a little goes a long way with this potent blend. Activated charcoal can be skin drying, following with a moisturizer is highly recommended. For all skin types, twice daily for oily skin.
Face Scrub ~ a blend of highly detoxifying activated charcoal, exfoliating abrasive fine Canadian Pacific West Coast sand, wildcrafted seaweed, anti-inflammatory & soothing wildcrafted yarrow, slowly stirred into Italian olive oil to repair and heal while you scrub. This seaweed is pure, organic, untouched, and extremely potent. The wealth of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants in seaweed helps in keeping the skin revitalized, moisturized, and youthful. These elements guard the skin against the harmful effects of environmental pollutants and help slow down the skin’s aging process. Scientific research has made it evident that seaweed contains anti-aging properties and is a very useful ingredient in skin care treatments. The anti-inflammatory properties present in seaweed are useful in treating skin acne and rashes, phytonutrients elevate blood flow and bring a healthy glow to the face, it detoxifies and aids in cleansing the skin by expelling toxins out of the pores. An excellent microdermabrasion for acne and other facial scarring, a wonderful treatment for aging skin, clogged pores, black and whiteheads, and flaky dry skin. You can apply this to specific areas of concern or the entire face. It is highly abrasive so we do not recommend it for extremely sensitive skin unless microdermabrasion is a part of your skin regime or other skin conditions are currently being treated, including eczema flare ups. Recommended use is once weekly for “normal” to oily skin and twice monthly for dry skin. Simply stir the jar creating a paste, apply to the face and rinse once it’s dried to the point of cracking. It’s normal for this product to separate as there are zero unnatural chemical preservatives within, simply stir the product before use. We recommend following with a heavy serum/moisturizer. It’s very normal for the skin to be quite reddish after harsh exfoliating; this is due to the abrasive effect which increases blood circulation. It is highly recommended using this a few hours prior to leaving your home if you have sensitive skin, and rinsing off with cold water to help cool the skin. Activated charcoal can stain light colored fabrics, and be difficult to remove; please use darker fabrics and be sure to rinse off as soon as it is dried.
Face Mud ~ this is wildcrafted Lake Manitou Mud with a blend of detoxifying rosemary, mints, citrus’ and tea tree for a deep detox and mineral enhancing cleanse. Since the early 1800’s Indigenous peoples have been bringing their sick to the lake they named after the spirit Manitou. The practice started after some Assiniboine afflicted with smallpox were cured after drinking and submerging themselves in its waters. This is a wonderful piece of Canadian history, rich with the power of natural healing and ingredients; we highly recommend further reading on this lake and it’s discovery by our First Nations! The naturally occurring mineral content in this mud includes Magnesium Sulfate, Magnesium Bicarbonate, Sodium Sulfate, Potassium Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Calcium Sulfate, Oxide of Iron & Aluminum, and Silica. This makes this an extremely potent, natural skin care mud, which is unable to be replicated in a lab without adding synthetic harsh chemicals. Simply apply mud to the entire face, allowing it to dry until cracked then rinse with warm water. Safe for all skin types, we recommend allowing the skin to completely dry before adding any form of moisturizer to absorb the complete mineral content and experience the full benefits. Excellent for joint pain and general mineral absorption, this mud can be applied to the entire body as well.
Facial Toner ~ an anti-microbial & anti-inflammatory infusion to stimulate & tighten the skin, seal pores and reduce redness. Witch hazel infused with green tea for it’s antioxidant properties and wildcrafted poplar buds for their healing resin. Mist onto wet or dry skin, allow to air dry. This can be used to set makeup or as a refresher throughout the day for oily skin.
Facial Serum ~ plant based fine skin care consisting of rosehips, wildcrafted and solar dried in the Alberta Boreal Forest, these organic rosehips have been macerated and infused in non-gmo organic unrefined hemp oil. With highly researched essential oils known and used internationally for centuries for their repairing, restoring, and anti-aging effects, they have enormous healing and anti-inflammatory properties, are ingredients in most wrinkle reducing products, rich in vitamin C, a wonderful astringent and mentally calming. Some of the most enjoyable aromas internationally throughout history, this blend consists of Turkish Damask Rose, Indian Frankincense, Italian Bergamot and Geranium, Canadian Chamomile and Carrot Seed, and American Clary Sage. Now infused with carrot tissue oil, evening primrose oil and oat protein, this blend is more potent, repairative, wrinkle reducing and hydrating than our previous Rosehip Serum. A very small amount goes a long way with this powerhouse serum, most people only use 1-2 drops for the entire face. Best used on very dry skin, during winter months, postpartum to restore skin’s natural balance, and before bed.
Eye Serum ~ immortelle has been used for centuries for its powerful anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and renewing effects as a skin treatment.
