A Rosa Damascena by Any Other Name

Lise

I wax poetic every time I work with this wonderful ingredient, and I work with it a lot.

Rose has so much to offer skincare and general wellbeing that I cannot even begin to imagine being without it. Rose is a constant in my stockroom and personal formulas – as hydrosol, powder, oil, infusion, tincture, wax, or in any other form.

It’s impossible to not love.

So I love.

A Quiet Cleanser

If you have been following me and my work for a while, you are probably already aware of my love of minimalism. My approach to almost every formula is to pare back as far as possible without sacrificing function.

Sometimes it takes more effort than one might imagine to create the perfect ‘less-is-more’ formula, but that’s what makes it such interesting work.

Above is an example of a very ‘quiet’ and simple cleanser that does an effective job without causing a fuss. Developed for sensitive skin, tested, and approved.

Afterburn Lip Balm

When I tested this lip balm with my own handcrafted chili-infused oil for the first time, I expected to feel like my lips were on fire, but there was no immediate heat.

Instead, it crept up quite slowly and increased in strength until there was no question in my mind: this lip balm was destined to be named Afterburn.

This lip balm is 100% plant-based - even the color - which is the result of a combination of oils infused with Turkish Paprika and Chili Peppers.

Are you signed up for my newsletter? Cool, cuz then you can look forward to an adaptable balm formula with chili-infused oil. Want to sign up? Excellent! Visit this page to join the upcoming chili-balm fun!

Herbal Magic

The inherent power and benefits of botanicals never ceases to amaze me. If one were inclined to dismiss the science of it all, one might be tempted to call it herbal magic.

That description fits all of my clients come to think of it.

The glass wand is a handcrafted stirring rod from a talented glass artist in the UK.

Skincare Ingredients in Tea

There are multiple pleasures in working with botanicals for skin and haircare products. Many of them double as ingredients for the perfect cup of tea. Here's a quick example. Roman chamomile (whole flowers) and a single rosebud was the combination in this morning's cuppa.

The perfume of these 2 combined is pure bliss to sip, and equally pleasurable to use in a skincare product. 

Cheers.
