About Our Ingredients & Violet Glass Containers
We use only unrefined, nutrient-dense, organic, plant oils, & genuine medical-grade, steam-distilled essential oils spun together with organic steam-distilled plant hydrosols, flower essences & care.
We start with the best ingredients we can source. What you ‘put-on’ your skin absorbs into your blood stream and liver. We take this biological fact seriously and use only ingredients you can recognize, pronounce and would consider safe to put inside your body.
Next, we package your cream in violet glass, the highest quality container available to protect our handmade fresh-to-order creams.
As far back as 3000 BC, the ancient Egyptians used violet glass as a vessel to store and preserve valued substances.
Medieval apothecaries to modern pharmaceutical labs recognize violet glass as the undisputed highest-quality container known for storing & preserving important contents, especially products that are sensitive to light.
Most natural products decay or deteriorate in sunlight. Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with exception of the three healing spectrums of violet, ultra-violet and infra-red.
Violet glass preserves contents with minimal degradation for longer periods of time, much more than any other color of glass.
Violet glass also has one of the highest vibrations on the color spectrum. It is believed that violet glass can actually raise the vibration of it’s contents.
Our hazelnut oil comes from a small southwest Washington Hazelnut orchard. They cold-press their oils after the fall harvest, during winter months when shipping tempetures are cold as well.
We are proud of the quality of the coconut oil we use. It is minimally processed using a centrifuge method that yields higher-quality oil than extra-virgin cold-pressed oils. It is quite simply the best coconut oil we can find. So good, you want to eat it by the spoonful!
It’s best known for it’s anti-fungal, moisturizing, and protective abilities. Coconut oil also encapsulates essential oils on a molecular level, preventing evaporation of the volatile healing compounds. That’s just one of the reasons we use it in majority of our formulas.
