Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist
$18.00 – $48.00
Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist is a hydrosol is that is floral, sweet, rich and full, honey-like, and somewhat resinous in a good way; clearly made with love and care. Cistus ladanifer is considered by aromatherapists to be the very best essential oil for skin firmness, yet until recently distillers did not produce cistus (which is a variety of rock rose that grows prolifically in the wild in Spain and Portugal) essential oil, absolute, or hydrosol that smelled appealing. Earthwise Beauty tracked down an artisan distiller of wild cistus in Portugal whose samples were special.
The sourcing of this hydrosol is unique and comes directly from the human being who, along with his local helpers, distills the plants. The distillation takes place in a reconstructed watermill, and they use water from the clean stream in front of it to make the hydrosol.
“Portuguese beauty water,” Earthwise Beauty waits for the next full moon to infuse it under the moon overnight. The moonlight amplifies the healing properties that correspond to the yin, or feminine element. Beauty, female intuition and insight, patience, and gentleness are enhanced.
Editors Note: Mist Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist on face after cleansing with Marshmallow Facial Cleanser.
Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.Browse All Products
