Elderflowers have been used for centuries to make floral cordials, luxurious bath waters and oils to anoint the skin. Women have gathered flowering tops from watery edges where these 'grandmother' bushes set root and thrive. This sacred plant both anoints and protects. These flowers were gathered in June by the river that flows near me, leaving plenty of tops to turn to berries come September. You can find her berries in our Elderberry Elixir.


BOTANICALS

Elderflowers are known for their soothing effect, improving skin complexion and are especially useful for older skin, however they are also very effective in treating acne and sunburns.

Hops are not only anti-fungal but they help support dry, stressed skin as well as discolouration and wrinkles. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it also helps ease redness associated with rosacea. 

Self Heal helps protect skin cells from UV damage let alone being anticancer and antiviral. It is commonly used to treat ulcers, wounds, burns, herpes and cancer of many forms. It's both nourishing and moisturizing for the skin as well as being an astringent. It's also wonderful at drawing out infections. 

Yarrow helps promote skin circulation and is a wonderful astringent. It's anti-inflammatory as well as antibacterial. 

Sumach is an incredible antioxidant and antibacterial and is high in vitamin C. Currently it's being studies for its anti-proliferative activity in cancer.

Seabuckthorn berries are loaded with vitamin C and omega 3 fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 and helps protect against free radicals. It is incredibly regenerative and reduces inflammation as well as acne. 

Lavender is antimicrobial, antiseptic, antitoxic and so much more. It relaxes the mind and body both, including relaxing tense muscles (which many of us have in our face and neck). 

Plantain nourishes skin, moistens dry tissues and is anti-inflammatory. Its high mucilage content enables it to coat and deeply moisturize cell membranes.

Organic Jojoba Oil is anti-inflammatory which helps to tame chapped skin, it reduce redness caused by dryness, eases symptoms related to eczema and rosacea and keeps skin calm. Its oil (sebum) is so close to that which our body naturally produces that it's much less likely to clog pores.
