She is the maiden, the high priestess, and carries the winds of the east with her as she rises into the air. She expands her essence to renew and grow, bringing equal light and shadow. The hellbore, crocus, birds, and rabbits are sacred to her.
Facial Massage Oil: Our facial massage oil is full of skin-nourishing, wrinkle-battling, anti-oxidant-rich ingredients that will help you slough off winter and prepare for spring and summer. The spring priestess represents the maiden, and we all possess her beauty despite our calendar age, we only need to coax her out of her slumber. Use our facial massage directions with this oil to pamper yourself, encourage lymph flow and cleansing, and let your inner priestess be reborn. We craft our oils with the highest quality ingredients that we are able to source.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) calms, renews, and purifies. It is known to rejuvenate skin, fight wrinkles, and may assist in scar healing.
Geranium (Pelargonium roseum) promotes peace, protection and love. It tightens skin, improves elasticity, and controls oil production.
Lemon (Citrus limon) is antiseptic and invigorating. It cleanses toxins, reduces fine lines, and can heal minor blemishes (may cause photosensitivity).
Frankincense (Boswellia sacra) is the king of oils. It is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and promotes an even skin tone.
A custom blend of skin nourishing oils: organic coconut, almond, jojoba, rosehip, and calendula-infused olive oil blend (EVOO, coconut and almond), is used to ensure a light and absorbent product. Coconut oil is full of antioxidants, is rich in vitamins and vital fatty acids, rosehip oil improves skin tone and reduces environmental damage, and olive oil is a rich and nourishing emollient. Calendula (Calendula officinalis) flowers are gentle, help reduce inflammation, and improve the overall condition of your skin. Enjoy and feel renewed!
Daily use is encouraged.
Beauty Lotion: Our beauty lotion is designed to moisturize, nourish, and heal. The spring priestess gathers nature’s bounty to conjure her own magic centered on renewal and rebirth. Our facial skin is constantly exposed to the elements throughout our lives. In order to protect the longevity of our largest organ from exposure to harmful environmental stressors, and without adding harsh synthetic chemicals to our regimes, we trust in the maiden for she provides all we need from nature’s apothecary.
We begin our lotion with rich and nourishing oils: organic almond, rosehip (Rosa canina), coconut, and extra virgin olive oil blend (EVOO, almond, and coconut) infused with calendula (see properties above).
We love the anti-bacterial and protective qualities of beeswax, and source ours from a local friend in southern Massachusetts. Additionally, we we add fair-trade mango butter, sourced from a woman’s co-op, to add essential fatty acids to our lotion that tightens, firms, and easily absorbs.
Herbal infusions from calendula (see properties above) and green tea (Camellia sinensis) are added to the product next. Green tea contains large quantities of polyphenols. Polyphenols have been shown to have antioxidant, anticancer, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. Most of the polyphenols in green tea are catechins. One of the major catechins in green tea (EGCG) has been shown to be the most effective agent against skin inflammation and cancer.
Hydrosols are waters that are distilled from flowers and other plant materials. We add yarrow (Achilliea millefolium) hydrosol to assist in dry skin, as well as to reduce redness.
EO’s of Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, Frankincense (see above for properties) are blended for their healing qualities and Vitamin E is added for its rich skin fortifying nature.
Finally we add arrowroot powder to reduce greasiness and help bind together the lotion.
