DIY Infused Oil Recipe in Organic Life Magazine!

So unbelievably stoked for this article that just came out in Organic Life Magazine! The profile also includes a recipe on how to make your own floral-infused botanical hair & body oil so be sure to check it out on my blog!

One correction worth mentioning: I was finally able to overcome my dependence on western meds for recurrent (and severe) poison ivy that plagued my northeastern youth with the miracle that is Jewelweed {Impatiens capensis}, also known as poison ivy’s antidote. This herb was one of the first to instill my faith in plant medicine when I drank & doused myself in it before harvesting Hawthorne berries from an ivy patch as part of my first herbal apprenticeship. After having poison ivy twice already that summer [both times in my eyes], I was certain I’d be doomed – but alas! Despite my skepticism, the Jewelweed protected me perfectly. Endless thanks to all of my herbal teachers & schools who are mentioned here ~ this lineage is built on the minds & skills of knowledge keepers that pave the way for each new generation of healers

Possibly my most moisturizing elixir yet, this bar is the perfect nourishment for your skin on the go. Scented with the light + sweet aroma of Hawaiian vanilla beans infused into raw butters, cold pressed oils and local beeswax, it melts right in & will leave every part of you soft + smooth. Use as a lip balm, face balm, body balm; great as a travel moisture balm, pre- & post-beach or to keep your skin hydrated through the wintertime. Now available in a 1/2 oz or 1 oz eco push-up tube here. Stay tuned for a giveaway of these babes within the next few days!

MORNING PERFUMERY

Morning perfumery, mixing up a blend for a client. Creating custom perfumes is one of my greatest passions in this line of work… Blending is truly an aromatic art, and I believe every perfume should be as unique as the person that it adorns. Processed through an entirely different area of the brain than the rest of our senses, smell has a particular association with our memories – thus giving scents the rare ability to transform us through time & space. I love witnessing reactions to different aromatic materials, and watching olfactory preferences evolve as we grow + change into slightly different versions of ourselves. Thus, the last drops in old vials of perfume can serve as a scented reminder of who and where we were in life when we wore it every day.

If you’re on O’ahu and would like a custom blend, please get in touch for a private in-person perfumery session… Otherwise order here by choosing from any of 30 different essential oils, and I will send a vial encapsulating your one-of-a-kind perfume through the mail!

EVERGREEN DEN

// EVERGREEN DEN //

I recently found myself unexpectedly enraptured by a true Evergreen Den of Hawaii. While camping on the mountainside of Haleakala, Maui’s extinct volcano, we found ourselves immersed in a lush forest of cedar woods, pines & eucalyptus trees ~ the very botanicals of which this elixir is created. The tucked-away den exuded my favorite aromatic aspects of this blend: resinous wood & fresh camphor, cool mountain air & morning dew. While Evergreen Den often leaves me with Northeast & Northwest nostalgia, it was lovely to find such scents hidden away on a Hawaiian island.

All Over Oil is a super versatile hair + body oil, available in 5 blends each featuring a unique essential oil of Hawaii. Available for $12 / $20.
