Rooted Balancing Balm


This is the Last Batch with the Gromwell Root Extract. A new version will be here in mid to late December.


Designed for dry, combination skin that oscillates between breakouts and dryness.  An aromatic blend to guide your skin and spirit back to center. Clarifying botanicals creates a pathway for your complexion to adapt to stress. Managing moisture needs for dry skin while limiting congestion.

This is a very soft balm that melts on contact with the skin.  Providing an ultra-nourishing yet lightweight layer. It makes a lovely morning balm when more moisture retention is needed plus has the added benefit of enhancing your SPF with potent UV protective antioxidants.  Once absorbed fully it gives a velvet finish with a hint of glow.

The rich red color from the gromwell root does not add pigment to the skin and can actually help reduce redness in the skin as it supports our inflammatory responses.

To provide a calming meditative experience you’ll find aromatics of blue tansy, lavender, and frankincense.

Typical variations:

  • The color can vary from purple to red depending on infusions/oils.
  • Over time the color becomes muted as the gromwell root settles into the oils, butter, and wax.
  • In weather fluctuations, small little butter beads can form but are easily melted into the skin through massage. Or if you prefer the original smooth consistency: place the jar (with the lid on) in hot water filled to just below the bottom of the lid.  Once melted, place in the freezer and remove after an hour. Once the balm reaches room temperature it returns to a smooth consistency.

A potent extraction of nutrient-rich roots including adaptogenic astragalus, harmonizing licorice, antimicrobial echinacea, and soothing marshmallow plus Co2 extracted clarifying gromwell root help bring the skin back to center.

A juxtaposition of ultra-lightweight oils with a touch of creamy mango butter and raw beeswax to absorb quickly, carrying protective antioxidants and an array of phytosterols to moisturize the skin.

Apply as the last step in your facial ritual. It works best over a rich hydrating mist or serum. As a more velvet finish, it can be used day and night depending on your moisture needs.
