Live Botanical Fleur de Terre Skin Repair Balm
An herbal formula developed to weave together a broad spectrum of constituents working collectively to manage a host of concerns from skincare to first-aid. An all-in-one balm; rich anti-inflammatory, astringent and antiseptic properties. Used for the treatment of breakouts, rashes, razor burns, sunburns, cuts, scars, dry patches, bug bites and more.
To Repair: dab small amount to cleaned cut, bite, rash, burn or breakout.
Overnight mask: last step in your skin care routine. Apply to damp skin to lock in moisture to slowly absorb through the night.
Clean: massage onto dry skin to dissolve dirt and makeup. Press a warm, wet washcloth onto skin to soften and clean the pores. Gently wipe off excess until no oil residue is left.
We source our raw, organic beeswax from a local beekeeper who focuses on pollinator stewardship practices by providing safety and diverse food sources. Their attentiveness for the bees ensure population growth and long term sustainability. The result of this care is honey and waxes that are vibrant and nutrient dense.
Working with local organic herb farms and ethical wildcrafters (including the maker herself) we are often able to buy fresh and process plants in-house to ensure ingredients are of the highest quality. All our infusions and tinctures are created in our apothecary using low and slow heat methods maintaining the integrity of the plant properties.
By using a majority of local and abundant ingredients we are able to provide an effective treatment that is cost inclusive while also being potent.
Yarrow is a classic herb that is highly astringent to help reduce bleeding and provide general wound care. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory to heal abrasions. The antiseptic properties clean the skin to prevent infection and breakouts.
Ethically wildcrafted usnea is the long haired looking lichen that you see on trees. It was added to further the inflammatory benefits.
Supercritical extracts of Frankincense (Co2) and myrrh (Co2), and immortelle* essential oil reduce inflammation, increase circulation and lessen scarring.
Calendula was added as a general skin tonic. Known to fight infection, protect skin from free radicals, reduce inflammation and breakouts, and increase circulation.
Lavender essential oil work with the other botanicals to further clean and clear the skin.

From Founder Carolyn on Living Responsibly:
To Live Responsible - Both environmental and social responsibility are value statements we hold dear in every decision made from sourcing, formulating, packaging to delivering.
Sourcing follows strict guidelines such as ingredients not obtained regionally are fair trade certified (when applicable).
If organic is not an option, we work with producers who follow organic guidelines or ethically wild-harvested using rules outlined by United Plant Savers.
Oils, butters and waxes must be GMO free and unrefined or minimally refined depending on formulation requirements.
Preservatives and lab based ingredients are researched extensively for environmental impact and personal safety. Ingredients must be biodegradable and molecule sizes are large enough to not be readily absorbed in the top layers of the skin.
We never test on animals or use animal based ingredients. We do use bee products which come from local bee keepers who are stewards to their livelihood.
We try to be transparent as much as possible. You're welcome to contact us anytime for more information on ingredients and formulas.
We give back to those whos land we live on. Supporting both Indigenous Peoples and environmental stewardship efforts. Current donations (reciprocity & reparations) include Chinook Nation and the Wild Salom Center.
