HARMONISING ROSE COMPOSITION

COMPOSITION
A high vibration, luxuriously harmonising, deeply moisturising and actively firming composition that also soothes the heart and lifts the spirit.

PURPOSE
Sun-infused extracts, cold-pressed seed oils and steam distilled essential oils of chosen hero members of the Rose (Rosacea family) combine their healing powers to deliver a well rounded composition of complexity and outstanding skin healing benefits:

Rose extract and essential oil deeply hydrates, prevents cellular oxidation, reduces redness, soothes irritation, lifts depression and elevates our spirit. 

Rose hip fruit extract and cold-pressed seed oil deliver essential fatty acids, Vitamin C, E and A needed to repair sun damage, correct dark spots, reduce lines and fade scars.

Extract of the much overlooked Quince fruit and seeds, found to be a stronger antioxidant than vitamin C, is loaded with restorative quercetin, a natural antioxidant with the ability to extend the lifespan and viability of skin cells. The extract provides a powerful moisture barrier for the skin.

SKIN TYPE
For women and men. Mature skin. Especially formulated for mature, dry, lacklustre, toxin overloaded skin skin in need of special tender love and care and intense, deep hydration. Reduces redness and hyper-pigmentation.

RITUAL
Use very little, a drop is ample. Mornings and evenings. Massage 1 or 2 drops max into still damp and warm skin every morning, using your ring fingers starting from the eyes. Your ring fingers have the lightest touch of all your digits and won’t pull your skin. This is a subtly fragrant composition that easily absorbs into the skin. Blend a drop with your night cream for a Vitamin night-repair boost.

FRAGRANCE PROFILE
A high vibration scent of full bloom roses with ever so light crushed apple ceed note and a hint of citrus sweet berry. The ethereal feminine, voluptuous Rose fragrance is gently tempered with sensual Vanilla and grounded by earthy Frankincense and resinous Myrrh. It warmly envelopes the skin and stays close for a lingering moment before gently releasing us into our newly calibrated, lovingly harmonised state.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

ENERGISING FOUNDATION

CALENDULA EXTRACT* / CALENDULA OFFICINALIS. 
Sun-infused flower extract in certified Demeter biodynamic Olive oil. Tasmania, Australia. 
Slow sun-infusion gently extracts the potent compounds of this ancient herb and charges our base oil with strengthening, age-proofing and repairing properties.

The world’s oldest known medicinal plant supports the skin’s natural regenerative activities and kick-starts all other ingredients into play.

Calendula’s potent inner compounds flavonoids and carotenoids are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative and calming, as well as soothing mucilages.

Calendula extracted into oil supports the skin's regenerative activities and boost our largest organs’ natural defence: moisturises dry and cracked skin, soothes irritated, sensitive, inflammation-prone skin, repairs and rebalances unstable skin barriers, improves elasticity, restores vitality after elemental damage such as sun exposure, heals wounds and burns and bestows luminous, healthy glow.

Ancient history: Ancient Egyptians bathed in Calendula infusion for luminous glow and Calendula-infused butter was a popular salve used in wound healing and to treat burns.

VANILLA EXTRACT* / VANILLA PLANIFOLIA. 
Sun-cured, sun-infused pod 
extract in certified biodynamic Olive oil. Certified organic. Daintree, Australia. 
The gentle, steady warmth of sun-infusion releases the rich fragrance, complex aroma and actively antioxidant Vanillin compounds into our base oil.

Helps soothe sensitive skin, neutralise free radicals that cause premature aging. Stimulates formation of new tissue. Relaxes the mind. On an aromatic level, Vanilla ‘sweetens’ the somewhat bitter medicinal constituents of the Olive oil and adds a luxurious, grounding, sensually exotic quality to our formula.

Ancient history: The Totonac Indians first cultivated the beans for medicine, spiritual rituals, insect repellent and tributes to their Aztec conquerors, who used Vanilla to flavour and super-charge their aphrodisiac chocolate elixirs.

OLIVE**/ OLEA EUROPAEA
Cold pressed kernel/fruit oil. Extra Virgin. Unrefined. Certified Demeter Biodynamic. Australia
The non-invasive, low temperatures of sun-infusion allow us to use extra virgin, antioxidant-rich and Vitamin E loaded Olive oil without destroying its heat sensitive vital nutrients.

Antioxidant Polyphenols, phytosterols and Vitamin E protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation and enhance skin cell regeneration, improving tone and elasticity.

Hydroxytyrosol, a rather rare compound found in olive oil, also prevents free radical damage and prevents premature aging. Moisturises, softens and replenishes dry, mature skin, prevents and fades the appearance of stretch marks.

Ancient history: The ancient Greeks believed the olive tree was a gift from the goddess Athena and used olive oil in their religious ceremonies and beautifying rituals. Italian diva Sophia Loren credits daily bathing in Olive oil, also described as ‘liquid gold’ in Ancient Greek mythology, for her eternally luminous skin and age defying beauty.

BALANCING CENTER

ROSE EXTRACT* / ROSA CENTIFOLIA. 
Sun-infused flower extract in certified Biodynamic Olive oil. Certified Organic. Bulgaria. 
Rose, the queen of all blooms with the highest vibration of all flowers and complex chemical composition, is a gentle yet powerful harmoniser during pregnancy.

It's high concentrations of vitamin C restore and maintain collagen, necessary for the formation of connective tissue in the skin, and protect cells from elemental damage.

The natural oils and emollients found in roses lock in moisture, keeping even the driest skin feeling smooth, plump and dewy. Rose is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin and helps calming skin conditions such as roseacea, eczema and psoriasis. 

A natural astringent, it tightens pores and restores suppleness and a healthy glow to dull, tired skin. The softly divine aromatics lower the concentration of the stress hormone cortisol in the body and help with good sleep.

Rose fragrance balances the mood, radiates joy and serenity and boost vitality in our lymphatic system and blood circulation.

Wearing high vibration Rose oil - infused or essential - counteracts the fatiguing effects of cell phones and computers by restoring the integrity of your electromagnetic field.

Quintessentially feminine, the rose has the remarkable ability to strengthen the heart, so we may walk through pregnancy with courage, joy and harmony.

Rather than using the more commonly known distilled essence which requires 242,000 petals to make 5ml of (!), we sun-infuse the petals over 3 months in olive oil under direct sunlight, to create our richly emollient, almost waxy oil of heavenly, out-of-this-world scent.

Ancient history: Named "the queen of flowers" by the ancient Greek poet Sappho, the rose has been a symbol of femininity and purity since ancient times, and played central role beauty rituals, as well well as legends and ancient myths.

ROSE HIP EXTRACT */ Rosa Canina. Sun-infused fruit extract in certified Demeter biodynamic olive oil. Certified Organic. South Africa 
Unlike the better known Rose Hip oil, which is cold pressed from the seeds, our Rose Hip extract is made from dried Rose Hip fruit sun-infused for 3 months in biodynamic Olive oil. This gentle method of extraction yields a velvet soft, distinctly flavoured oil which, together with the cold-pressed seed oil, delivers a full spectrum of this phenomenal plant.

Loaded with a higher Vitamin C content than citrus, the Rose Hip fruit is rich in folate, contains vitamins A, B3, D and E and flavonoids, carotenoids and minerals, has shown to inhibit enzymes that breaks down collagen in the body, reduces wrinkles and improves moisture content of the skin.

Ancient history: Rose Hips were used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans, Chinese and Native Americans for their universal healing and skin-nurturing properties. The Romans famously used Rose Hip to heal dog bites, giving the Rose Hip it's latin name ‘Rosa Canina’ (Dog Rose).

ROSE HIP SEED OIL*/ ROSA RUBIGINOSA. Lesotho. Cold-pressed. Certified Organic.
Ruba Rubiginosaor the Lesotho Rose Hip, is native to in the tiny kingdom of Lesotho in the high mountains of South Africa. Although very similar to the more common Rosa Canina, or Dog Rose, this highly prized seed oil contains more essential unsaturated fatty acids and has a better linoleic-oleic ratio (3.3 vs 2.5) important for acne prone skin, where linoleic acid helps combat skin issues and oleic acids aggravate the problems. 

More importantly, Rosa Rubiginosa contains the trans-retinoic acid tretonoin, hailed as a miracle active that restores and regenerates skin tissue, normalises skin texture and decerases pore size, and combats wrinkles and acne. Also contains phenols that have antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. 

Ancient history: Ruba Rubiginosa, or the Lesotho Rose Hip, is native to in the tiny kingdom of Lesotho in the high mountains of South Africa.

QUINCE EXTRACT** / Pyrus Cydonia. Sun-infused fruit and seed extract in certified Demeter biodynamic olive oil. Certified Demeter Biodynamic. Australia
I loved Quince ever since I was a child, my mum used to make creams, extract, teas, bread, eand unusual but totally more-ish savoury jams from weirdly velvet covered fruit gtown on the knotty trees in our orchard in Hamburg, Germany. 

Our sun-infused oil extract contains not only the skin hydrating and skin soothing properties of the Quince, but also the precious, protective wax found in it's skin, which, just as it shields the fruit on the tree, forms a protective barrier on our skin. 

High levels of quercetin, help prevent wrinkles, reduce inflammation from UV radiation, environmental pollutions and chemical irritants.

Ancient history: Native to Asia and the Middle East, the quince was first cultivated in ancient Greece and revered as a symbol of love, happiness and fertility.

RED RASPBERRY SEED */ RUBUS IDAEUS
USA/France. Cold pressed seed oil. Certified Organic. USA
Extremely high in phytosterols which help prevent skin damage and encourage collagen production. A Canadian study in 2000 found that the natural UVA and UVB protection afforded by raspberry seed oil is reportedly similar to titanium dioxide with an SPF protection factor against UVB rays of 28-50, and an SPF protection factor against UVA rays of around 8. https://www.berrybeautiful.us/assets/characteristics-of-raspberry-(rubus-idaeus-l.)-seed-oil.pdf

Ancient history: In Hellenistic Troy, Ida, nurse to the infant Zeus, pricked her finger while picking the white berries, staining them red for all eternity. 

SAFFRON* / CROCUS SATIVUS
Sun-infused stymen extract in certified biodynamic olive oil. Certified organic. Australia
Saffron's chemistry truly is of otherworldly complexity. The world's most expensive, most charismatic spice contains over 150 volatile and aroma-yielding compounds - a biochemical symphony with epic skin-healing and psycho-active properties. Saffron can help increase oxygen flow important for vital skin tissue and healthy disease-resistant cells. It contains antioxidant carotenoids crocin and crocetin, which have strong antioxidative, cellular and neuro-protective properties that help with ageing eyes, and there are studies suggesting regular use of saffron may help restore structure and function of retinal cells, and reverse age-related macular degeneration. Our Saffron is exceptionally beautiful, deeply red, sultry aromatic, and certified organically grown right here in Australia.

Ancient History: Incredibly, each Crocus flower only yields 3 saffron stigmas which are, to this day, only ever harvested by hand. 50,000 year old frescoes of prehistoric places in northwest Iran contained saffron-based pigment. The worlds most expensive spice's medicinal uses ranged from lightening and beautifying skin, treating eye problems to healing genitourinary diseases in many ancient cultures.

ROSE OTTO DAMASK*/ ROSA DAMASCENA. Bulgaria. Steam distilled essential oil. Certified Organic.
Because of it's ultra precious and expensive nature and the mind-bending amount of flowers it takes to make just a drop of essential oil, we dose this exquisite elixir in minute amounts, just like the Ancient royals did. Amazing on broken capillaries, wrinkles, eczema, herpes, mature, dry and sensitive skin. Similar to beeswax, it’s a natural humectant, drawing moisture to itself and locking it within the skin for deep, day-long hydration.Purifies skin by pulling toxins out of its outer layers. It’s unique combination of antioxidants like citronellol and geraniol, the pure rose oil helps diminish signs of aging and fights free radical damage. Enhances the skin’s natural  glow and radiance and helps with superficial broken capillaries and scars, as well as eczema and rosacea.The Bulgarian Rose Damascena is only cultivated and harvested in the Rose Valley of Kazanlak (also known as the “Bulgarian Rose Valley”).

Ancient history: Since Ancient times, Damask rose is considered the most precious essence in the world, used by pretty much every queen, princess and priestess in history to rejuvenate skin and chase eternal youth.
