Folklore's new botanical skincare line offers a gentle, yet rich complexity, encapsulating our view into the natural world and the beautiful medicinal botanicals that provide for us.
Vitalum the Healer Infusion: Our cold pressed organic calendula, orris root and helichrysum infused almond, vitamin e, and sunflower oil, with a finishing drizzle of organic manuka and frankincense essential oils. Ideal for skin and wound health and regeneration.
Our prized wound and blemish healer, capable of hastened wound regeneration, scar lightening, and pain relief. It has the added benefit of brightening skin with its solar qualities, providing a supple and smooth skin surface! We have added frankincense and manuka essential oils to this healing oil due to their overwhelmingly positive effects in healing formulations. They are a synergistic combination that simply can't be beat when looking for a natural anti-microbial and anti-fungal healing agent.
These organic, cold pressed oils are non-comedogenic. High oleic sunflower oil contains vitamins A, C, D, and E, a high linoleic acid content, and few saturated fatty acids. This oil is easily absorbed and can be used on all skin types. Its high vitamin E content makes it especially helpful for delicate and dry skin, and a superb healer as well.
Calendula, Orris (Iris) Root, and Helichrysum, when infused into oil, offer a range of benefits for both the body and mind:
Orris (Iris) Root:
- Skin Conditioning: Orris root contains mucilage, which helps to condition and soften the skin. It's often used in skincare for its soothing properties.
- Evening Skin Tone: The orris root helps to drain out impurities and brighten the skin, giving a more even and smooth appearance. A person who is suffering from hyperpigmentation could benefit from this oil, and it makes an excellent addition to a wound healing oil with its ability to lighten and repair scar tissue!
- Pain Reliever: Orris root can be applied topically to aid in the relief of pain associated with the muscles and joints, as well as topical wound pains.
Helichrysum (Life Everlasting Flower):
- Skin Healing: Helichrysum is prized for its skin healing properties. It's believed to support skin regeneration and reduce the appearance of scars.
- Anti-inflammatory: Helichrysum contains compounds that may help reduce inflammation, contributing to its skin-soothing effects.
- Skin Calming: Calendula is known for its calming properties. It can help soothe dry, irritated, or sensitive skin.
- Antioxidant: It contains antioxidants that can aid in protecting the skin from free radical damage.
- Antimicrobial Action: It contains compounds like flavonoids and saponins that exhibit mild antimicrobial properties, helping prevent infections on the skin's surface.
- Anti-inflammatory properties: Frankincense oil contains compounds that may reduce inflammation, making it beneficial for soothing irritated skin, reducing redness, and calming skin conditions like acne.
- Antiseptic qualities: It has been used traditionally for its antiseptic properties, which could help in cleansing and protecting wounds from infection.
- Aromatherapy benefits: Its aroma is believed to have calming and grounding effects, potentially aiding relaxation and stress relief when used in aromatherapy.
- Antibacterial and Antifungal properties: Manuka oil is known for its potent antibacterial and antifungal qualities, which may assist in treating various skin issues like acne, fungal infections, and even minor cuts or wounds.
- Skin rejuvenation: It's believed to support skin repair and renewal, aiding in maintaining healthy skin.
- Anti-inflammatory effects: Similar to frankincense oil, manuka oil may help reduce inflammation, making it useful for soothing skin conditions.
Unlike just essential and carrier oil blends, which are potent but less gentle, our infused oils harness a simple, yet broader range of plant constituents, such as beneficial flavonoids and glucosides, to nourish the skin and body. Our organic cold-pressed almond and sunflower oil infusion offers a more subtle and sensitive skin friendly fragrance, retaining the true medicinal and spiritual anima of our flora while simultaneously crafting a holistic experience with each plant essence.
