Specially prepared to use as of the Autumnal Equinox on 23rd September, this delicate yet powerful fusion of plant oils decongests and smooths and calms post-summer skin. The cocooning aroma helps to balance the emotions too, easing us into shorter days, longer nights.
‘Autumn is about harvest, enjoying the fruits of our labour and preparing for winter. It’s also a great time to repair and nourish our complexion after a summer of sun exposure. I’ve selected the best age-defying plant based ingredients to help skin renew and deal with changes in air moisture as the temperature cools.’
Why do I need it? With sunny holidays behind us and a long winter ahead, we can feel physically drained and emotionally deflated. This blend seeks to install confidence and uplift the spirit, whilst supporting the skin through this big transition. Nutritionally packed base seed oils - including Prickly Pear, Amaranth, Echium - counteract the effects of crisp mornings and central heating on our faces. The heavenly scent of Jasmine Sambac comes through to inspire confidence and optimism alongside citrusy Grapefruit, Green Mandarin and Lemon to focus and energise.
Why is it unique? The daily ritual of applying this beautifully balanced blend settles skin and mind. Nourishing seed oils re-hydrate the surface of the skin, while inhaling the aromatic essential oils changes your mood. There is Sandalwood to revive and rejuvenate and Patchouli to ground emotions, Geranium Bourbon to balance. And, there’s the addition of hand made flower essences which work through the body’s acupuncture meridians to create a positive effect on our state of mind.
How do I use it? Morning and night, after cleansing, place 4-5 drops in the palm of the hands, press together to warm, then cup around your nose and mouth, breathing deeply for a count of three, pause before exhaling for a count of five. Then massage upward and over the face, working outward from the centre, until the oil is absorbed and skin begins to sing.
