Ritual Cleansing Balm
Our favorite fall & winter skincare ritual is back!
Annual offering during the cooler seasons
Sweet, vanilla-like tonka bean butter, meditative copaiba resin, and rose swirled in a decadent balm to deeply clean the driest of skin conditions. Created to enliven the senses and signal the start of your skincare ritual.
Shea and Kokum butter softens the skin while a potent oil infusion of St. John’s Wort works to dissolve buildup. Gentle emollients are activated by water to create a rich cream cleanser to rinse away the day.
Due to the inclusion of essential oils (approx. 1%), it may not be suitable for highly sensitive skin.
Rose is the ultimate harmonizer of the skin and spirit. Speaking directly to the heart, softening the hard edges, allowing us to feel more at peace. Functionally the rich antioxidants limit cell damage and encourage regeneration. Naturally, the petals are rich in moisturizing compounds making them a favorite for dry and sensitive skin. We use a gorgeous hexane-free, organic extract that was developed specifically for aromatherapy rather than using common, less expensive absolute. Setting the stage for this blend to truly be part of your personal ritual for reflection, expansive love, and connection with oneself.
St John’s Wort is wild-gathered by the Live Botanical team each summer. Their unique compounds (which lend a lovely red hue) are best obtained via fresh flower extraction. Within hours of harvest, the herb is placed into organic, golden jojoba oil to be infused over 2 moon cycles - capturing the essence for seasons to come. This process speaks so much to the magical aspect of this plant. Known to strengthen your inner sun and sense of self. An embodiment of the summer solstice and a strong sense of vitality. When left to dry, the vibrancy is diminished. Functionally it’s noted for use on skin abrasions, wound protection and disinfection, rashes, muscle tightness, joint discomfort, and nerve pain. It was specifically chosen for this formula as a cleanser for its unique acidifier quality. Helps to balance the skin's pH and soothe irritation from cold-harsh winters.
Scoop a quarter-size of balm and massage onto dry skin. With deep breaths take in the warming sweet scent to quiet the mind. Hints of rose open the heart, guiding you to listen and acknowledge what may come up during your ritual.
Spend 1 minute massaging the skin, softly working the cleanser to the bottom of the neck; moving stagnant energy. Splash with water and massage to create a light milk. Once complete, rinse well with tepid water, removing excess with a damp cloth.
Can be used daily.
