Support Your Skin With Oil

Nisreen Azar

All Hallows' Eve brings us a welcome and chilly change in the weather. It finally feels like fall with these cooler, darker and cozier days. Along with the changing temperatures and seasons, it's good to give your skin an extra boost of protection and support. We love using True Wild Botanics Restorative Skin Oil for daily skin support, especially during this time of year.

Exposure to the elements, free radicals and changing climates can do a number on your skin. Having the right oil on your face is crucial to maintain adequate skin protection and moisture. True Wild Botanics Restorative Skin Oil incorporates healing elements of jojoba and sweet almond oils to moisturize, soothe, and maintain healthy and glowing skin. Vetiver, frankincense, and myrrh essential oils offer ultra restorative, cleansing and regenerative properties with a calming and grounding scent. Read more details about these powerful botanic elements in our Ingredients Index.

For daily skin care, we recommend massaging three to five drops of our Skin Oil over cleansed face, neck and chest. We also love to use it as a total body moisturizer after bath and shower time.  Our Skin Oil also serves as an oil-based facial cleanser; massage four or five drops onto your face to remove and unclog dirt or makeup and rinse with a warm washcloth. True Wild Botanics Restorative Skin Oil is like three products all in one!

The Power of Sage

Nisreen Azar

The sweet and dry smell of sage is intrinsically tied to the Southern California landscape. It is an aroma that instantly connects us to Chaparral and Coastal Sage Scrub. Native American Tribes in Southern California used native sages for a variety of purposes ranging from food to medicine and ceremony. Black sage (Salvia mellifera) possess analgesic, aromatic, and carminative properties. It was traditionally used during bathing to alleviate aches from flu, rheumatism, and arthritis. Black sage seeds were used as a food source and leaves and stalks were used to flavor food. Similar properties can be found in Cleveland sage (Salvia clevelandii) and Purple Sage (Salvia leucophylla). White sage (Salvia apiana) possess anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aromatic, nervine, and cerebral tonic properties. White sage was used in ceremony for purification and in sweat houses to eliminate illness. It was also crushed and added to water for use as a cleansing hair rinse and fresh leaves were applied to underarms to eliminate body odor (John Bean & Siva Saubel 1972,  Largo & McCarthy 2009, Ramirez & Small 2015). 

We honor the beneficial, powerful, and unique properties of California native sages by incorporating several species of ethically and locally harvested sage in our Sea Salt and Coastal Sage Body Scrub. This invigorating scrub combines four native sage species with the healing properties of Dead Sea salts. Mineral-packed Dead Sea salts detoxify, nourish, and restore balance to the body. Our body scrub combines the two healing agents for a simple way to replenish minerals in the body, rejuvenate skin, and increase relaxation and restoration during your bathing ritual. We hope you enjoy the power behind this beautiful plant as much as we do.
