This wonderful herb has been macerated in Sunflower oil for many weeks to extract its healing and soothing properties. Calendula officinalis, commonly known as pot marigold, is considered a mainstay in herbal medicine for the treatment of inflammation, to speed skin repair and as an antiseptic. Calendula's powers aren’t just folklore. It contains an array of constituents that work together to create a potent healing remedy, one being salicylic acid, which is an anti-inflammatory that encourages tissue repair. You will often find this magical herb in lip care products due to these gentle yet potent restorative properties.
Nicknamed the liquid gold of skincare. Rosehip seed oil is widely known for its anti-aging properties as it has been clinically tested and shown to help minimise the appearance of scars and fine lines. Rosehip seed oil is high in Retinoic acid, a pro-vitamin A, which your body turns into retinol, which is widely known for it's highly powerful skin renewal properties. This magical oil is very moisturising, light, non-greasy and full of antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids that help to heal, nourish and protect the lips, making it a perfect ally for soothing dry chapped lips.
Lovely, light sunflower seed oil has excellent emollient properties that help lips retain their moisture. It is high in Retinoic acid and Vitamin E (the highest amount on vitamin E than any other oil!), both these constituents act as anti-oxidants and help to regenerate damaged skin cells. It is also high in omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid, which enhances skin barrier repair.
Rose Geranium has a beautiful scent which could be described as a bouquet of rose and citrus. In aromatherapy Rose Geranium is used to encourage relaxation and reduce stress. This uplifting oil is widely known for it's balancing and grounding effects on the mind and body.
We have used unrefined beeswax sourced locally, from a small-scale beekeeper, in our home county of Essex. Our supplier is so local we collect it straight from her house! We opt for beewax over other waxes because it is a byproduct and when sourced locally it has a much smaller carbon footprint than the alternatives, making it a more sustainable option. We think it is important to support local ‘beecentric’ beekeepers, that love and care for their bees and put them first. Plus it’s a wonderfully healing ingredient, it is naturally antibacterial and creates a protective barrier on the skin which aids skin repair.
Massage a thin layer of salve directly onto the lips to help soothe, soften and protect.
Some oils and herbs are not advised to take when pregnant. Please contact your doctor, midwife or medical herbalist when considering which natural products are suitable. If you have very sensitive skin I would recommend doing a patch test first. If irritation occurs discontinue use.
Store in a cool dark place, this lip balm should be used within 6 months once it has been opened.
Cactus Care Tips: The most common question I get asked is 'How NOT to kill your Cactus'
So here it is plain and simple...
Cactus Tips: Luckily our little prickly friends are hearty creatures & are built for mother nature's land of neglect... the desert. The most common cactus or succulent killer is over watering. Your cactus wants 'dry feet' as its typical terrains are dry & arid, so go easy on H2O so the roots don't rot.
Only water when soil dries. This can range depending the environment, but usually once a month in cooler seasons & no more than twice a month in warmer seasons. During the winter cold season cacti and succulents become dormant so you do not need to water them, give them a lil winter break. Ideally use a spray bottle or mister & try not to water the actual plant, but the soil directly around the base.
Your concrete planter porous so the pot itself recreates a rocky base and imitates the natural layers for drainage that the plants enjoy from their desert home. Also each parcel includes a layer of extra stones for the pot bottom to help with drainage for roots & extra acidic cactus soil. As a rule of thumb it's good to re-pot your cactus or succulent every 2-4 years, either if it's grown enough to go up a pot size, but mainly to replenish the soil's nutrients.
Cacti & Succulents prefer light & warmth, but avoid direct sun as they can burn. To assist with growth & flowering use cactus feed in every other watering.
Thank you for your support & I hope your purchase brings you a little sunshine indoors.
