Peppermint Forest Foot Cream is a complete treat for the feet! As a mom of many kiddos, a yoga teacher and a traveler I use it year round to nourish and soften my busy feet. I love how alive and supple this oil based cream makes my feet feel. First thing in the morning energizes and brightens my feet, while rubbing the foot cream on at bedtime is restful and restorative.
"The Lavender + Sandalwood Cream is all I use after cleansing my face each night. In an old farmhouse with a woodstove it helps keep my face well moisturized, and as a gardener in the summer heat it does the same. I never wake up in the morning feeling as if my skin is tight and dry. It's not oily, never leaving a stain on the pillowcase. And I love that it seems to last forever!"
"My favorite is your Peppermint Lip Balm, because I'm a guy and not big on the other flavors. Without protection, during winter especially, my lips used to peel and crack, and even bleed — who needs THAT? But this stuff really prevents chapped lips and feels refreshing, not gooey or perfumey. And it lasts FOREVER! I don't know how it compares to the cost of other lip balms because I've stopped buying them." - Mike
This is Mary & her daughter, Laura. Laura likes our Lavender + Sandalwood Cream (especially on Spa day) and Mary 's favorite is Super Skin Salve "...because it has repaired so much damage to family (humans and pets)."
1. Mild Sunburns: That moment when your skin is on fire and you need to get out of your bathing suit knowing that clothes are going to scratch your tender skin - ow! I reach for Super Skin Salve .It's anti-inflammatory properties soothe immediately, adds much needed moisture and herbs speed along the healing process.
2. Bug bites: Super Skin Salve again. My husband hardly ever gets mosquito bites, but the little buggers lay in wait for me. My bites swell up for days on end unless I use a little bit of this salve. Those anti-inflammatory properties and herbs work wonders here too.
6. Bare Feet Care: Months of running all over with bare feet can feel like freedom but hardened calluses can be a real challenge. I reach for Peppermint Forest Foot Cream. My favorite is applying it at night and wearing an old pair of socks overnight. I wake up to my feet looking a feeling fabulous!
Getting a tattoo is a big deal to your skin and any good tattoo artist is going to spend some time telling you how to take care of your tattoo after you leave their shop. I peppered my artist with all sorts of questions and left with her standard full sheet of specific instructions.
Many of the tattoo care products out there are petroleum or PABA based and I had a hard time putting that gunk on my skin just to help my tattoo heal. It did heal, but the tattoo was really itchy, peeled a lot and needed another hour of follow up work, so frustrating. I felt like I had failed my skin.
After the touch up, I followed all the regular instructions but substituted cocoa butter for the first week instead of the gunk. I would warm a few pieces of coca butter in my fingers until it was soft enough to apply easily. For the second through third weeks I used my Calendula Cream. The result? It never got itchy and there was no more peeling. In fact, it looked and felt great the entire time and still does 2 1/2 years later!
It's important to follow those instructions on cleanliness and more, but it's nice to know that tattoos don't need the gunk either!
Look for face cleansers that feature ingredients that will break down easily & naturally. Our Botanical Face Cleanser uses ground Adzuki Beans to gently clean your face. Good for your skin, good for the environment!
