A special limited-edition collection of products inspired by sunshine & the outdoors! Since summer is a time of warmth, outdoor activities, energy, and sunshine, the items in the collection will reflect and celebrate these themes as well. Inside the collection, you'll find a special curation of products crafted to nourish, support, refresh, invigorate, and cleanse the entire body + mind.
When envisioning this seasonal collection, I imagined what our needs are during these warmer months and reviewed my favorite recipes and products from summers past. This collection is the result, and I hope that you love these products and find them as helpful as much as I do! Inside the collection, you'll find an uplifting body wash scented with ginger, vanilla, and ylang ylang flowers, a large sustainably harvested sea sponge to exfoliate, cleanse, and slough off dirt and debris, an herbal liniment and garden salve to assist with injuries, bug bites, sore spots, and other skin maladies throughout the summer, a refreshing, hydrating, and soothing blend of floral hydrosols to refresh, hydrate, and cool the skin, a clay mask to deeply cleanse pores and remove impurities, a tasty bottle of lilac + vanilla elixir to uplift the spirits, and June's special lavender + helichrysum facial serum* which is nourishing, reparative, regenerative, and protective to keep skin healthy and moisturized.
*If you'd like to purchase the collection without Lavender + Helichrysum Facial Serum, please see the second drop-down option.
INSIDE THE SUMMER COLLECTION:
Ginger, Vanilla, + Ylang Ylang Botanical Body Wash, 8oz bottle (new product!). Scented with a delicious combination of ginger root, vanilla beans, and ylang ylang flowers, the scent of this body wash is uplifting, calming, warming, and just makes you feel happy! This nourishing and gentle botanical body wash is made from a base of organic ingredients including aloe vera, plant oils and butters, pure essential oils, and herbal extracts. It cleanses with natural plant-based ingredients without overly stripping and drying skin. This body wash is quite concentrated - just a drizzle on the sea sponge is needed to lather and last an entire shower/bath! We may sometimes need to take some extra showers during the summertime, especially after going for a hike or working in the garden, and this body wash is perfect for ensuring that your skin doesn't get too stripped by soap and is clean, yet moisturized.
Lavender + Helichrysum Facial Serum, 1oz bottle (special limited-edition summertime formula originally created for June's Serum of the Month!). A blend of nourishing, regenerative, reparative, skin-loving ingredients which also provide natural sun protection against UV rays*. Truly a multi-tasking blend, this serum soaks into skin effortlessly, is nourishing, moisturizing, perfect for daytime or nighttime use as well as the delicate area underneath the eyes, and the scent is lightly floral with resinous notes. Beneficial for all skin types including dry, sensitive, and mature skin. If you'd like to order the Summer Collection without the serum, please see the second drop-down option. *This serum is NOT meant to be a substitute for sunscreen.
St. John's Wort + Calendula Herbal Liniment, 1.67oz roll-on bottle (special limited-edition product!). Featuring ingredients to deeply penetrate, nourish, sooth, and repair. This liniment will include an oil infusion made with fresh St. John's Wort flowering tips, an extract made from Calendula flowers, lavender hydrosol, witch hazel extract, aloe vera gel, menthol crystals, and a blend of warming, cooling, and reparative essential oils including mint, ginger, juniper, pine, eucalyptus, rosemary, clove, cinnamon, and lavender. I've been making variations of this liniment for 7+ years, and it's so helpful for muscle tightness and soreness, after overexerting in the garden or on a hike, or as a spot treatment for itchy bug bites. A staple in our home all year round, but especially so during the summertime, and I'm very excited to offer it to you!
Linden, Chamomile, Rose, and Lavender Hydrosol Blend (special limited-edition product!), 2oz bottle. I love multi-tasking products, and this one will come in so handy this summer! Featuring a blend of soothing, regenerative, refreshing, cleansing, purifying, and toning flower waters, this formula can be used as a gentle and hydrating facial toner, a soothing and cooling after-sun or burn skin care spray, or misted onto minor abrasions and rashes to sooth and repair. Hydrosols are created by steam distilling fresh plants, and the resulting floral water contains the essence and properties of the plant. This is the same basic process as distilling essential oils, but hydrosols are far less concentrated and can be used liberally on the body without irritating skin and they are great for all ages. This blend may seem a little unassuming at first, but the blend of flowers is incredible for skincare and beneficial for so many things! I've been using this blend daily as a facial toner and as a refreshing mist when my skin feels dry, and my young kids spray it on their minor wounds, abrasions, rashes, burns, and as a room mist whenever they need an emotional lift or calming down.
Lavender + Comfrey Facial Clay Mask, 2oz jar. This is our signature and ever-so-popular clay mask! Clay masks deeply cleanse, increase and improve circulation, naturally remove oils, impurities, tone and tighten skin, and bring a fresh glow to dull complexions. Our facial clay blend contains three varieties of clays, powdered herbs, flowers, herbal extracts, and pure essential oils. Since we often spend much more time outdoors in the summer, our skin is exposed to more dirt, sweat, pollutants, and other things that can clog pores. Doing a facial mask once per week (or even once per month) during the summer months can greatly help cleanse pores and keep our skin happy and glowing.
Lilac, Rose, + Vanilla Elixir (special limited-edition product!), 1oz bottle. Yum! This elixir is made from fresh lilac flowers harvested this spring, rose simple syrup, rose water, and organic fair trade vanilla beans. Enjoy a few drops anytime on the tongue to uplift the spirits, destress, relax, calm the busy mind, and open the heart!
One Large Bath Sea Sponge (new product!). This natural sustainable sea sponge is so luxurious! Perfect for lightly exfoliating skin, cleansing dirt, sweat, impurities, pollutants, and dead skin cells for fresh, glowing skin. Plus, they contain natural minerals which are beneficial for the skin. We've tested several sea sponges, and this variety which was sustainably harvested from the Caribbean is our absolute favorite! They are gentle enough to be used in the bath or shower daily, yet have the perfect amount of exfoliation. They are also quite large! They measure 5-6 inches in length, and since they grow naturally in the sea, each sponge is unique in shape, size, and appearance. These sponges are durable and will last for many months with proper care. Once they have reached the end of their life cycle, they can be easily composted instead of ending up in the landfill like synthetic alternatives.
Homegrown Botanical Salve (special limited-edition product!), 1oz tin. This is an extra-special salve made entirely from fresh herbs, flowers, wild plants, and tree clippings harvested from my garden and around our property. Includes a synergistic blend of fresh rosemary, cedar tips, oregano, yarrow leaf and flower, lavender, St. John's Wort, ginkgo leaves, spruce tips, lemon balm, blackberry leaves, clover blossoms, and sage infused into organic olive oil with beeswax and cocoa butter added. After drying all of the botanicals and infusing them into organic olive oil, I melted in beeswax and cocoa butter for an ultra-nourishing and skin-loving topical treatment to sooth and assist with dry and rough hands, feet, elbows, and knees, can be used to help with skin irritations and small cuts or abrasions as needed, as a spot treatment for bug bites, or as an all-around skin treatment and ally. I love this salve, the color is pure sunshine and the aroma smells just like a garden in the sunshine!

Have especially been enjoying the liniment oil for sore muscles and mosquito bites. The body wash smells/feels wonderful with the sea sponge, a nice alternate option from wash cloth and bar soap. The hydrosol is so refreshing and pairs well w the serum. Havent yet tried the clay mask or elixir, but I have no doubts they will be delightful as well! Very happy with this collection!
The quality and care put into each item is outstanding, and it's so much fun--a whole box full of gifts to unwrap and enjoy.
