Ancient beloved oils, infused with whole, healing botanicals. This gentle, nourishing balm is inspired by ancestral hunter gatherers from all over the globe. For millennia, our lives revolved around the raw animal and plant resources all around us. Animal fats were a crucial aspect of human life - and for good reason! Nutrient-rich tallow and Australian Emu Oil are blended with organic olive oil and infused with enduring medicinal flowers and resins.
To use: Work into skin, to ease any dryness or inflammation. A little goes a long way! Best used within 6 months.
Ingredients: Grass-fed suet tallow, Australian Emu oil, Cold-pressed Olive oil*, Vitamin E oil*, local beeswax. All oils are botanically infused with whole lavender buds*, calendula flowers*, Marshmallow root*, Chamomile flowers*, Myrrh resin, and Frankincense resin
Tallow is rich in the same types of lipids found in youthful, vibrant skin and is packed full of Vitamins A, D, E, and K. The fatty acids in tallow are more bioavailable than plant based oils because tallow is much closer in molecular structure to the oils our own skin produces. Tallow is non-comedogenic, locking in moisture without clogging your pores.
Australian Emu Oil is refined from the fat of emu birds, native to Australia. Traditionally used for sun protection among Australian aboriginals, Emu oil may provide some SPF and is beneficial for healing sunburns. Emu oil deeply hydrates the skin by helping to prevent water loss, and helps heal wounds and blemishes. It is a potent anti-inflammatory, rich in anti-oxidative properties to nourish the skin, slow down wrinkle formation, and ease other aspects of the aging process. The anti-inflammatory aspects of emu oil may offer some relief for arthritic pain.
Cold-pressed Olive Oil is known for its many useful applications in the kitchen and in body care. In skin care, it provides deep hydration by reducing water loss, while its anti-inflammatory benefits work to soothe and soften. Quality olive oil contains a wealth of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to offer the skin.
Vitamin E oil is antioxidant-rich and can improve your blood circulation. Its moisturizing properties can make your skin look firm and youthful, as well as helping to slow down the skin aging process. The combination of vitamin A (in things like beeswax) and vitamin E may help in removing acne-causing bacteria. Vitamin E can also reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring.
Beeswax helps lock in moisture and can act as a protective barrier for your skin. It is rich in Vitamin A and can help protect your skin from environmental damage. Beeswax also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties and has been known to help heal acne, eczema, psoriasis, and stretch marks.
Lavender helps reduce redness and inflammation. Its antibacterial properties help get deep within the pores and target acne from the inside out. Enjoy the heavenly and relaxing aromatherapy that accompanies this botanical’s trustworthy, healing ways
Calendula is soothing, helping to reduce swelling and irritation of the skin, and can help reduce inflammation.
Marshmallow root has been used in skincare for centuries and provides instant hydration, improves the skin's ability to retain moisture, and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory benefits. It also contains a naturally occurring botanical form of hyaluronic acid that can firm the skin and increase moisture levels.
Chamomile contains powerful anti-oxidants including polyphenols and phytochemicals. When applied to the skin, it may help reduce signs of aging by protecting the skin from free radical damage. It's wonderfully soothing, and helps to reduce redness and inflammation.
Myrrh encourages new cell growth and may help to prevent and ease facial lines. Because myrrh helps to improve circulation, it is beneficial for aging skin, helping to create a more youthful look.
Frankincense is a powerful astringent, which helps to protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce blemishes and mask the appearance of large pores. Frankincense may also help to lift and tighten the skin.
