New Zealand Houhere
Houhere (commonly known as Lacebark) is native to New Zealand. This graceful tree has been used in traditional Maori Rongoa (medicine) for it’s demulcent (soothing) and healing action. In late summer the Houhere blossoms with a mass of delicate creamy white flowers.
The leaves and inner bark contain polysaccharides, which form mucilage when they are crushed and soaked in cold water. This substance can be used to treat inflammatory conditions in the digestive and respiratory systems. These same constituents give Hoheria its demulcent action when applied to the skin, softening, soothing and healing.
New Zealand Manuka
Manuka has been shown to contain constituents with powerful antimicrobial properties. We use only Manuka essential oil produced from the East Coast of New Zealand, which has the highest levels of these actives. Manuka possesses anti-inflammatory properties and for this reason along with its extraordinarily gentle nature makes it the perfect addition to skincare products.
Calendula has a long history of use in skincare due to its powerful anti-inflammatory, cicatrisant (regeneration of skin cells), soothing and calming properties. It is said to tone the tissues and enhance blood supply.
This is one of the most gentle of all essential oils. The essential oil of Roman chamomile has both sedative and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s aroma is both calming and soothing to the nerves and particularly beneficial in relieving stress and anxiety. In skincare it is particularly useful for calming any irritation in sensitive skin. Energetically Roman chamomile is harmonising, peaceful and soothing to the spirit.
Lavender has been used for centuries across many cultures for its soothing, calming and healing properties. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial and is known for its skin cell regenerative (cicatrisant) properties. Lavenders properties promote balance enhancing its suitability for all skin types. The aroma of Lavender is calming and soothing to the mind, relieves stress and anxiety opening the door to new horizons.
