Forest Spirit Massage Body Oil
Rich, sweet, and earthy, with deep undertones of evergreen and plant resin, this massage and body oil transports you back to a warm day spent in the forest with plants crushing underfoot. Spruce, Douglas Fir, and Peru Balsam oil bring the rich scents of the forest, and Bergamot and Lavender add lovely undertones without being overwhelmingly floral or sweet. We infuse locally harvested Tinder Conk mushrooms (Latin: Fomes fomentarius) in safflower oil for several weeks to extract the beneficial botanical properties.
Although mushrooms seldom come to mind when one thinks of skin care, in reality, they contain a powerhouse of nutrients to feed your skin. Mushrooms contain hyaluronic acid, which moisturizes and plumps up skin, reducing age-related wrinkles and fine lines. They are also rich in Vitamin D, Selenium, and potent antioxidants, which protect the skin. Mushrooms contain high amounts of polysaccharides, which help hydrate skin and give it the nutrients it needs to promote cell regeneration and produce collagen. Mushrooms can help treat acne due to their rich vitamin D content; they also contain Kojic acid, which helps even skin tone, discoloration, and age spots. Mushrooms contain anti-inflammatory compounds, which can help conditions such as rosacea, eczema, and acne as well as beta-glucans, which can calm irritated or itchy skin. They are capable of penetrating deep into the skin, allowing your skin to topically absorb nutrients directly where they are needed.
A versatile and nourishing oil, safflower oil is rich in linoleic acid, other omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and an array of vitamins. Safflower oil has a comedogenic rating of zero, meaning it won't clog your pores, but due to its slow absorption, this oil is better suited to the body than the face. Safflower oil deeply moisturizes skin, and helps combat conditions such as eczema or just your standard dryness.
