expeller pressed plant oils, organic rosemary oleoresin, organic essential oils, botanical co2 extracts, cobalt blue glass bottle, glass dropper, eco packaging

A completely natural, silicone-free, and lightweight serum to tame frizz, smooth and soften dry, rough hair and split-prone ends, and add incredible shine.

Directions: Use just 1-3 drops at a time, smoothed between palms, and apply to hair, focusing on ends or, using the slight gloss left on palms to smooth flyaways around the face. This product doesn't provide much hold, but it offers smoothing, softening, de-frizzing, shine, and improved manageability. Moisturizes, nourishes, and softens dry hair, especially rough or split-prone ends. Excellent for sleek styles. Washes out easily, goes great with my Lavender Mud Hair & Scalp Cleanser:

Back Story: Years ago -- almost a decade ago(!) -- before I started making products, I used to rely on commercial shine serums and smoothing serums to keep my naturally wavy/curly big hair from being too crazy. I knew they were all silicone-based (if you're in deep with these products, have a look at your labels for dimethicone, cyclomethicone, and ingredients ending in -siloxane -- these are silicones!) and I didn't love how goopy they felt, how synthetic they smelled, and how slightly coated and deadened they made my hair feel, weighing down my hair's natural body -- but I felt I needed them! Changing the way I washed my hair meant (to my surprise) I didn't need silicone serums anymore, but in my travels in the plant oil world, I've always had an eye out for ingredients that might perform similarly, because I know how it is to need that kind of smoothing and taming. This product is the result of those explorations! I'm incredibly impressed by the way these particular plant oils coat, smooth, and soften, adding weightless shine -- like a better version of those thick silicone serums, but without any of the ickiness.



10 ml / 0.33 oz cobalt blue glass bottle with tamper-proof dropper. Little bottle with a lot of power, given that one uses a few drops at a time!

Scent: fresh like a bouquet of fresh snipped rosemary and lavender, but with something ineffably spicy and a little floral. not too strong.
Texture: an oil with a little thickness and body.



Ingredients: expeller pressed plant oils, organic rosemary oleoresin, organic essential oils and co2 extracts. (all ingredients are listed on the label.)

Always 100% natural.

FAQs

No, never -- this is very important to me. My passion, which became my business, stems from my reverence for natural, minimally processed beautiful materials, and from my own profound chemical sensitivities -- so you can be sure that my none of my products will ever contain these sorts of materials. My products are truly, radically all natural.
That's a tough question to answer in a short space. But, in essence: there's no standard definition for what "all natural" means in the bodycare and cosmetic world.* Different people have different definitions, and I often see products labeled "all natural" that contain dubious ingredients.

What I mean by radically all natural is that every single ingredient I use would fit anyone's notion of what it is to be natural. My products are made from simple, elemental, minimally processed ingredients like herbs, clays, essential oils, oils, and beeswax. Good, clean food, basically!

*In fact "all natural" isn't a regulated term, and any company can call their products natural, even if they contain synthetic fragrances, preservatives, etc.!
Quite a while! Typically 1-3 years. I formulate my products to be enjoyed over time, and each product is labeled with its batch number and with an "enjoy by" date. The shelf life depends on the particular oils in the product -- just as you wouldn't cook with olive oil that's a few years old, so also will the natural oils in bodycare go rancid over time. If you get to the end of the stated shelf life and your product still feels and smell fresh (no gumminess to a balm, no whiff of old oil), feel free to keep using it! I am pretty conservative when stating shelf life, so products typically last months longer than indicated.
Away from sunlight and at consistent room temperature is ideal -- your medicine cabinet or a shady dresser top is perfect. No need to store in the fridge. Think of it like how you'd store dried herbs -- sunlight steals the mojo of these products, and heat can dull the aromatics over time. And repeated fluctuations from very warm to very cold can change the texture of body butters and creams,

A few places to *avoid* storing your goodies: in a car (big temperature swings!), on top of a radiator, on a sunny windowsill.

Because my products are made from natural oils, butters, and waxes, they may become softer in very hot weather or harder in cold weather. These texture variations are normal and won't affect the performance of the product.
My products are rich in botanicals, which speak to our bodies in complex, profound ways. But with plants, allergies are always a possibility. Please read ingredients lists, know your own allergies, and ask questions; when in doubt consult your doctor and/or do a patch test. All the descriptions of my products and ingredients are for educational purposes only.
My products are cruelty free and always will be. I am personally against animal testing, and I will never test my products on animals. To be cruelty-free, a company's ingredients must not be tested on animals either. Part of the reason I use simple, natural ingredients with a long history of human use is that they sidestep the supposed "need" for animal testing, because they're already known to be safe.

My products are all vegetarian (like me!), and many are naturally vegan. The only non-vegan ingredients I use are beeswax from local farmers who use good bee-friendly practices, natural lanolin (extracted from sheared sheep's wool), and powdered milk. Many of my products can be made vegan on request -- feel free to convo me!
I try to avoid bringing more packaging into this world! Most of my glass packaging can be returned to me for a refund of $1 per piece. Unfortunately I'm unable to cover shipping expenses, so I recommend saving up a handful of containers before mailing your glass packaging back to me. Convo me for my shipping address; when I receive your packaging, I'll issue you a refund on a previous order or via PayPal.

I often vend at markets in the Baltimore/DC/Philadelphia area -- if you live in the area, you're welcome to return packaging to me in person!

All of my products are handmade from scratch by me! I formulate and handmake everything in my Baltimore workshop, using only radically all natural, minimally processed ingredients, most of which are organic or wildharvested. I aim to make my products as from-scratch as possible, starting with herbs, some of which I grow, wildharvest, or source from a nearby farm. My workshop is always brimming with herbs infusing in oils and tinctures brewing, raw materials that will end up in my Deep Radiance Face Cream, Balsam Fir Deodorant, Lavender Mud shampoo -- you name it!
