Witch Hazel Extract
Our witch hazel is a double decoction. First soaked in organic grain alcohol for 6-8 weeks, then simmered in pure water.  Unlike the clear drugstore variety, ours is full of color and tannins and goodness! It is used in many cosmetic products for its light astringent and firming properties. It has mild antibacterial properties, making it a popular choice for cranky, inflamed skin.

Epsom Salts
Epsom Salts do wonders for sore muscles. Epsom salts are a natural magnesium salt. In water, it breaks down into magnesium and sulfate. Soaking in warm water can help relax muscles and loosen stiff joints. People use Epsom salt baths as a home treatment for arthritis pain and swelling, bruises and sprains, insomnia, psoriasis, sore muscles and more.

Arnica Gel.jpg

Arnica Gel
Arnica is a medicinal herb valued for its anti-inflammatory properties. It can be ingested (i.e. as a homeopathic tincture) or applied topically to the skin for pain and swelling. It is often found in creams and gels to support healing for a wide variety of inflammatory issues including insect bites, muscle and joint pain, chapped lips and acne.

Himalayan Pink Salt
Himalayan Pink Salt is renowned as an especially mineral-rich salt that comes from caves in the Himalayan Mountains which were under the sea over 200 million years ago. Himalayan Pink Salt is helpful to soothe sore muscles, detoxify the body and skin, and balances pH.

 

Cocoa Butter (1).jpg

Cocoa Butter
It is one of the richest oils available and makes it ideal for dry and aged skin. It has emollient properties that help thicken skin care products. It also contains fatty acids, which improve skin moisture retention and elasticity and is effective in easing skin problems such as eczema or psoriasis. It can clog pores so it's better to use a little less if you have acne prone or oily skin.

Brown Sugar
Brown sugar is an amazing skin care secret weapon! It is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into your skin.
 It is gentler on the skin than salt. It is a fantastic exfoliator for all skin types. It contains alpha hydroxy acid, which encourages cell turnover for radiant, younger looking skin.
