THE ANCIENT METHOD OF SUN-INFUSION
May the sun bring you new energy by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries,
May the breeze blow new strength to your being.
May you walk gently through the world
And know its beauty all the days of your life.
Sun-infusion is an ancient method, used in biodynamic skincare and folk medicine crafting to extract medicinal properties out of natural botanicals such as flowers, leaves, bark, seeds, even wood, traditionally into oil with nothing but the warmth of the Sun over the course of 3-4 months. This lovely process allows us to use extra virgin olive oil and delicate botanicals, without destroying their heat sensitive vital properties.
Usually, commercial extractions are done on the stove top within hours, into inferior non-virgin oils, at much higher temperatures than the oil and botanicals can handle, ruining their healing powers in the process.
For our compositions, sun-infusion means all extracts are made slowly, with natural sun-light, allowing our beautiful botanicals to gently release their properties into our Demeter certified biodynamic Olive oil. The resulting Oil is so stunningly different to everything else on all levels - aroma, skin feel, viscosity, colour, slip, emollience, and, most importantly, medicinal and therapeutic benefits.
We use no electricity, don't expose our composition to toxic radiation and we produce zero carbon footprint.
Energetically, this beautiful process literally charges our base oil with the energising, life-giving, all-encompassing vibration of the sun.
