ALOE VERA

Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) extract

Believed to be a powerful healer by traditional medicine men and women, spiritually aloe vera is an amazing plant for reconnecting your body back to harmony and balance. It offers the spiritual vibration and frequency that says, “You’re ok now, you can let go”. This messaging makes it a wonderful cleanser and clearer. Our pure extract comes from a special distillate of the leaves, which means that cells of the skin can assimilate it much quicker and more completely.

AMBER

I remember travelling in Tibet and seeing great chunks of amber in the market. Now I understand why it is so revered. Amber spiritually carries the vibration of love to lift you up. No big deal! 

I’m talking about the power of love, which is different than affectionate love. Love is a power that can bring you into harmony and balance, to soften resistance and dissolve fear. Love is the ever renewing source, and the remembrance that you are creation, moment by moment. You are not created and then become static. You are ever-flowing, ever-renewing, and ever-increasing in your life. The intoxicating scent of amber reminds you of this eternal beauty about yourself.

ANISE SEED

Anise Seed (Pimpinella anisum) essential oil

Considered by many to be a seed of purification for the mind and body, the spiritual frequency carries the message allowing the body to assimilate itself into higher vibrational levels of clarity, emotional patience, quiet, ultimately opening to greater understanding of life.

ASPHODEL

Asphodel (Asphodelus albus) extract

Native to the meadows and heathlands of the Mediterranean, the pure extracts of organic asphodel form the foundational energy of the Here and Now series of room sprays. Fields of these beautiful flowers were believed to have grown in the mythical Elysian Fields. These fields were the revered realm of ancient Greek mythology where heroes, who had made their transition from life, would continue to exist in peace and happiness.

Spiritually, asphodel is a wonderful for grounding, and centring—bringing you into the here and now of your life.

BEESWAX

Did you know that beeswax is an amazing natural preservative? We use it to  beautifully stabilize  emulsions (the stuff that keeps your cream from separating), rather than synthetic substitutes. Our beeswax comes from the hard work of beekeeper Gillian Lockwood, owner of Halo Honey. Gillian and I  spent a of time perfecting the purification method of her beeswax (which comes from the caps of the honeycomb, and nothing else). I’m super proud to be using it in our elixirs. The spiritual properties of beeswax are about encouraging industriousness and collaborative work. There’s not greater example of collaboration than a colony of bees. Collaboration is about working together in a way that allows you to listen, understand, and offer information that really works for everyone in a symbiotic way. Time to feel alive, and get busy like a bee!

It goes beyond your DNA and allows everything to come up to the highest quality, and highest vibration of your original creation.

Traditionally used as one of the holy anointing oils for kings and queens, you can find references for frankincense being used as a treatment for almost every illness you can think of.

Spiritually frankincense creates a very tight matrix of light around you so that you can’t take in the pain of the world. This enables you to be calm, centred, and grounded at all times, so you can open up to Divine communication, Divine opportunities, and see the miracles in your life.

Our honey comes from Halo Honey, a business run by Gillian Lockwood. Gillian keeps her bees on family property near Priddis, Alberta. Her honey is raw, which maintains all of the enzymatic properties, and naturally contains local pollen and wonderful bits of propolis. Our bees get a lot of love, and special treatments of reiki everyday. Honey is full of anti-oxidants, and is super-moisturizing and soothing. It makes a wonderful treat for every inch of your skin.

That stability is very important because it means that the oil doesn’t spoil or become rancid. On a spiritual level, jojoba is a great translator of the higher realms into your consciousness, making it an excellent carrier oil for the messages that are being given from the other botanicals we combine with it.

ROYAL JELLY

Royal Jelly is a milky, slightly sticky, substance made by bees. Bees use this jelly in their hives as food for the queen bee. It is the natural source of hylaronic acid. Hylaronic acid is well known in the world of cosmetics because it promotes collagen production. But not all hylaronic acid is created equally. Collagen is the stuff that gives your skin that lovely youthful texture that we all love. You skin is always synthesizing procollagen (the precursor to collagen) in the epidermis, but it won’t turn into collagen unless it receives the right signal. Hylaronic acid is that signal.

REIKI

Reiki isn’t a physical ingredient, but it is an important aspect of all of the products we make. Reiki is a spiritual practice of channelling God, which is referred to as life force energy or the intelligent field of all and guided by spiritual consciousness. Reiki brings in harmony and balance, and raises life force energy. We use this spiritual practice to bless and raise the energetic vibrations of all of our products, and ingredients. I received my Master level Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki certification in 2012 from Memra Yekara who received her training from the masters in the original lineage of the practice.
