Goji and Rose Balm
Growing up, my mother prepared a hearty broth chock-full of Chinese herbs and meaty bones at least once a week. This was before bone broth became the mainstream “superfood” it is today. Goji berry was a champion ingredient that was featured in many nutrient-rich broths of my past. I never understood the benefits then; my mom would simply say “drink this, it’s good for you” and I obliged—slurping down a bowl morning and night without questioning her wisdom. She also often made tea with the goji berry seeds, which resulted in a delicious, lightly sweet, orange-coloured tea full of antioxidants. To this day, goji berry seed remains a pantry staple in modern Chinese households.
Our Goji and Rose Balm is a fragrant and luxurious all-purpose balm that applies moisture to targeted areas. Similar to a traditional Chinese broth, this balm is supercharged with nourishing and natural ingredients for your skin; use this on your lips and face as well as cuticles and other dry spots. This soft and velvety formula protects skin in cold weather; customers have used this balm on their hands and even as a nipple cream for nursing mothers!
Goji berry seed oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter, lanolin, rose absolue and peppermint form a magical and fragrant blend to provide your skin with serious hydration.
For mindful use: We love using this balm on our lips, cuticles, and elbows. Apply to dry spots when needed. Please be aware if you have any lanolin/wool allergies as lanolin is extracted from sheep's wool. We use pure and refined lanolin oil.
Align your “chi”:
Goji berry is a “superfood” that contains powerful antioxidant and anti-aging properties to help skin retain moisture and promote skin regeneration. It helps to even out skin tone, and tighten and firms the surface of the skin.
Jojoba oil contains vitamin E and B-complex vitamins which protect and repair the skin and prevent free-radical damage to the skin cells. It has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness caused by drying, ease the effects of eczema and rosacea, and keep skin soothed and comfortable.
Lanolin oil is extremely healing and its high fat content allows it to form a non-occlusive barrier, which means it prevents the evaporation of water from the skin. It keeps skin moisturized and helps the skin heal without feeling smothered or too greasy. An excellent emollient; it is widely used in skin medications to treat rough, dry, and scaly skin. It can also heal skin burns, rashes, and minor itches.
