Lemon Balm Self Care Oil
Lemon Balm lifts the spirits, eases anxiety & tension, and aids in the healing of cold sores.
Apply locally to cold sores, use as an uplifting moisturizer on face & neck, or add to bath.
We believe in the power of whole, fresh ingredients. We use an ancient, handmade technique to infuse whole Lemon Balm leaves into freshly-pressed Olive oil. This gentle and powerful process produces a rich botanical oil with a broad spectrum of healing plant constituents. The resulting oils have vibrant colors & subtle, dynamic aromas that delight the senses and deeply nourish even the most sensitive of skin.
From Cleopatra to Jennifer Lopez, Olive oil has long been used as a natural beauty powerhouse to keep skin plump, glowing, and youthful. Its rich sources of squalene deeply moisturize skin while phytosterols activate microcirculation and improve quality and evenness of complexion. Our Olive oil is grown, hand-picked, and pressed on a small, organic farm in Ojai, California.
Lemon Balm leaf
In the 1st century, Dioscorides praised Lemon Balm for "sweetening the spirit." 16th century Swiss physician Paracelsus deemed Lemon Balm the "elixir of life." Topical applications of Lemon Balm have been shown to aid in the healing of cold sores. Our Lemon Balm leaf is grown organically on a small farm in Colorado by a delightful woman who is both a farmer and a biochemist.
Adding a splash of alcohol to the Lemon Balm leaves before infusing them into oil opens up the plant cell membranes and makes for a deeper, richer profile of healing constituents while still being gentle on even the most sensitive of skin. Our cane alcohol is made from organic cane and distilled by artisans in Denver, Colorado.
