My Daily Ritual
I adore the Elixirs. After cleansing in the morning I mist liberally over my face taking a moment to breath deeply, enjoy the delicate scent of a summer meadow, and set my intentions for a positive day ahead. Of course my day doesn't always turn out like that!
In the evening I cleanse and again mist generously. This Elixir is so deeply hydrating and packed full of so many nourishing plants that I don't use a serum or balm, this is enough for me.
Note From Laurel
Science: Facial Mists are not just a feel-good luxury. They offer hydration which is essential to skin health. By combining a water-based product (like our Elixirs) with an oil-based product (like our Serums or Balms), you are offering the skin all the nutrients and building blocks that it needs to be healthy. All plants contain antioxidants and micronutrients that are either water or oil soluble. Thusly, by offering your skin both plant waters and plant oils, you are feeding your skin everything it needs.
Rose – Multitude of Roses! Rose hydrosol and rare White Rose essential oil both have hydrating and barrier strengthening properties. We’ve also added house made extracts of local heirloom roses within two different mediums, each which capture an abundance of nutrients such as Vitamin C, flavonoids, anthocyanin, and gallic acid. Roses are gentle and soothing to the skin, while deeply hydrating and supportive to connective tissue.
Marshmallow – This mucilaginous and polysaccharide rich root has an incredible ability to hydrate. It is nature’s form of hyaluronic acid, plumping up each cell with hydration and wrapping them in what feels like a cooling hug. It is high in B Vitamins and betaine making it soothing, healing, anti-inflammatory, and softening to the skin.
Rose Geranium – Our Biodynamic® Rose Geranium Hydrosol from California is an extraordinary gem. Rose Geranium is strengthening and repairing to broken capillaries, as well as balancing to oil production, pH levels, and our microbiomes.
Calendula – Find both Calendula Hydrosol and a whole plant Calendula extract in this Elixir, in order to fully capture each medicinal compound within this powerhouse plant. Calendula is a powerful humectant that helps our skin retain its hydration and retain a supple glow. Calendula is a true tonic for our individual cell health, and can restore skin health like no other.
Astragalus – Astragalus has been closely studied for its ability to strengthen and repair telomeres, which are responsible for cellular aging. Telomere repair is essentially DNA repair. Astragalus is also anti-inflammatory, stimulates surface immunity, and supports connective tissue health.
Helichrysum – Grown in the Pacific Northwest and artisan distilled, our Helichrysum Hydrosol is no doubt powerful medicine. Cooling and soothing Helichrysum is deeply regenerative to the skin by restoring health and vitality on a cellular level.
