Vetiver Balm

Elixir Collective No. 7 ~ Vetiver Balm

At the heart of the August Elixir Collective is Vetiver ~ one of the most grounding plants on the planet. This month's alchemy subscription box featured a Limited Batch Vetiver Balm with a ring of Hawaiian Vetiver roots at its center, along with a small bundle of these aromatic roots from Vetiver Farms Hawaii. 

 

 

For the Forest Dwellers

MIDWOOD MUSK // An aromatic adornment for forest dwellers and mountain folk; a solid scent for those who prefer to smell like the trees above all else. Four of my favorite botanicals dance together in this lovely perfume, which includes the ever-precious essences of Hawaiian grown & distilled Vetiver & Sandalwood essential oils. $18 at >indigoelixirs.com



Tantalus Mist

Check out this lovely interview with Paiko Hawaii on our recent collaborative potion! ‘Tantalus’ is a light room + body spray inspired by life in the Tantalus jungle above Honolulu {the neighborhood of Paiko founder Tamara Rigney}. Locally sourced Hawaiian vetiver & sandalwood are the base of this fresh & intoxicating scent, available exclusively at Paiko.
