W/S NEW: ELASTIC LOVE / Firming Face + Neck Oil / Zero Essential Oils
Magic moments of holding together.
Juicy tension and lingering affirmation come knocking with this sparkly serum that rapidly tightens, really powers up the tensile strength, and infuses my maturing, 49 year old skin with elastic love and buoyant resilience – especially the skin on my neck and under my chin that's never caught my eyes before.
This composition is reminder to myself of the tender strength and infinite elasticity of love between people near and far. A reminder, too, of love’s resilience and beauty in the face of separation, loss and time. And it is also an invitation to travel with me through time and space: from our garden in Kangaroo Valley where the Kangaroo Paw Flower, Artichoke, Red Clover and Quince grows, to the European Summer gardens of my childhood picking Black currants and Blackberries, and on to places I long to go like Afrika, South America, China...
ELASTIC LOVE symbolises the invisible ties that forever connect the hearts and souls of lovers, family and friends, the magic glue that holds us together, forever.
Sun-infused extracts of Kangaroo Paw Flower, Quince, Red Clover, Bamboo, Horsetail and Artichoke are combined with cold pressed, unrefined seed oils of 'Cassis' Black Currant, Kalahari Melon, Evening Primrose, Prickly Pear and Pequi Fruit to tighten and recover elasticity, replenish linoleic acid and strengthen the connective tissue of my skin, improve skin thickness and balance the skins metabolic cycle, increase collagen production and even balance hormones.
ZERO ESSENTIAL OILS
To let the aromas and fragrances of my extracts and oils unfold naturally, I have chosen to add zero essential oils to any of our KAIROS MOMENT compositions. This means their energetic ethereal body charge is much more subtle and comes from the naturally occurring, non-isolated essential oils within the plant matter like seeds, fruit, flowers, leaves, bark, etc I am extracting into biodynamic Olive oil. The aroma of these very complex compositions is oscillating, specific, momentous – Kairological.
MOMENTOUS. LUCID. FUN.
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour." ~William Blake Kairos Time - as opposed to Chronos time, is non-linear. Kairos time does not get measured, does not run to schedules. It is the cyclic time of the soul, divine sparks of new directions, aha-moments of deep insights, transformative decisions, inspired creations, and, most importantly, of floating idleness. Kairos moments arise in stillness and appear in the eye of storms. When our chronos-time bound ego falters, when we surrender our self to Nature, it finds our wounded openings and pours light into all our cracks. Kairos moments are transcendental, magical,
I created our vivid new compositions during our very own Kairos moment in 2020, when time stood still for all of us. And in that elastic pause between inhale and exhale we got to play, explore and make some skincare magic.
An Ode to Now.
