FACIALS WE OFFER

Why Natural Ingredients?

The skin on our bodies is an organ.  It absorbs 70% of the ingredients that are put on it.  The skincare industry isn't regulated like the food industry.  So there are several chemicals that you can find in skincare that are toxic.  Here are some resources that can help you find out more about the ingredients in your products.

The CDC publishes a report called the National Report on Human Exposure to Enviromental Chemicals.  On it are many ingredients that you will find in products you have on your shelves at home.  

You can find out more about which chemicals to watch out for with the Environmental Working Group's cosmetics database called Skin Deep or download their app for ratings on more than 120,000 food and personal care products, now at your finger tips.

What is Holistic Skincare?

Our holistic approach to skincare focuses on the whole individual. Our belief is that in the pursuit of health, one must consider all 6 dimensions of wellness: 

PHYSICAL

EMOTIONAL

SOCIAL

MENTAL

SPIRITUAL

ENVIRONMENTAL

If any one area is out of balance, it can affect all other areas within us. This can positively or negatively affect our health. 

 

When considering skincare brands, we weigh side effects and consider how much any ingredient has the potential to disrupt the other dimensions of the individual.  

The skincare brands that we carry all have natural ingredients, are good for your skin, are not tested on animals and will not hurt the environment when you wash them off.  They are ingredients you can feel good about.

Chinese & Ayurvedic Herbs & Botanicals

Acupuncturists & Ayurvedic doctors undergo an extensive study of herbs (otherwise known as botanicals) and their many medicinal properties.  Botanicals differ from pharmaceuticals greatly. Although drugs may be based on herbs, they usually rely on singular molecular compounds of herbs.  Many are derived from isolated extracts of the plants’ active ingredients. Alternatively, herbal medicine uses the whole plant which creates a more balanced effect and is less likely to cause side effects.

 

Ayurvedic and Chinese herbs are usually prescribed in combination to increase the efficacy of the formula and help decrease any possible side effects. Most importantly, for an herbalist, the goal of treatment is not to simply relieve symptoms but to treat the internal imbalance at the root of the problem.

CBD & Honey Properties

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has a wide variety of medicinal and therapeutic effects and is a known anti-inflammatory, with antioxidant and anti-aging properties. As an antioxidant, CBD can help protect the skin from free radicals like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants. Free radicals lead to wrinkles and fine lines, but antioxidants protect our skin from this damage and help fight the effects of aging.

The Full Spectrum CBD in CBD & Honey™  products is made from industrial hemp, which has the same properties as cannabis-derived CBD, but contains less than 0.3% THC. All of the CBD & Honey™ products are made with Hemp-derived CBD, which is legal in all 50 states.

Honey Properties

As beekeepers, Martha and Curt know the superpowers of honey and its associated by-products, so they made sure to put all that pure bee goodness into their sticks, along with the superpowers of tea tree, arnica, goldenseal, calendula and super rich emollients to keep your skin nourished*.
