Because our products are handcrafted, we’re able to handpick the highest quality and purest ingredients, with absolutely nothing else added to create a truly premium product. We use only organic ingredients to ensure the purity of our product and to help protect farmers, their communities and the environment.
Most products on the market today contain synthetic or impure ingredients (along with unnatural preservatives). For example, many vitamins and argan oil are rarely in their pure form in products, as they are often genetically modified or mixed with cheap solvents, chemicals and fillers. Most balms and creams use paraffin wax (made from oil) or beeswax, however, we use candelilla wax to ensure our products are vegan. We perform no animal testing and avoid oils that are likely to contain parabens, mineral oils or synthetic fragrances, like grapefruit or vanilla oil.
We pride ourselves on having ingredients that are not just 100% vegan and organic, but also eco-friendly. Our products come in glass jars and bottles, to help reduce the plastic load on the environment and further preserve the integrity of the oils.
The essential oils we use are therapeutic-grade, organic and also environmentally friendly from sustainable plants. Unfortunately, many products that contain organic plant oils do so by using plants that are endangered and unsustainable. For example, sandalwood, rosewood, cedarwood and frankincense oil are found in many products, however, they also further endanger or threaten the plant it comes from. We use an alternate form of sandalwood oil that is much safer for the environment and all other oils from responsible and sustainable sources. We also avoid dangerous plant oils, like palm oil, that may be endangering the orangutans and rainforest. Unlike most products on the market, our vegetable glycerine is palm oil free.
Each product contains botanical herbs of different species combined with essential oils and gemstones of similar functions that work synergistically together to enhance their therapeutic benefits and create a premium product.
The botanical herbs are dried and then placed into high-quality plant oils in natural sunlight over the span of several months. The heat from the sun extracts the extra therapeutic compounds of the herbs into the plant oils that are too large and complex to be used as essential oils, but may still deliver their active ingredients through the skin. These oils tend to be gentler, but still contain powerful anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories and anti-microbials.
When we smell specific essential oils tiny particles are dissolved into the lining of our nose that then send signals directly to the limbic system of the brain. Each smell triggers different signals to the brain to bring the body back to homeostasis through balancing heart rate, breathing rate, brain activity, pain-threshold, inflammation, neurotransmitters and hormones. The smell can also send signals to the brain to boost the function of our immune system, digestion and relaxation.
Rubbing blends or balms on the skin may help in the delivery of active ingredients from the herbs, especially on thinner areas of the skin, like the inner wrists or behind the ears.
Using the roll-on on particular acupressure points along the body amplifies its therapeutic function. The plant oils contained in the roll-on are potent enough to stimulate acupuncture points without the needles, while also transferring their energetic information into the body through the specific acupuncture point that has a similar therapeutic function and into the meridians (energy pathways) of the body, creating a mutual resonance and synergy between the point and the plant oils to further enhance healing within the body.
