This is healthfood for our face ~ for all skin types with a low risk of pore clogging. There is a very low risk of skin irritation so mild enough for those with eczema or psoriasis. Most customers report it takes 1 year to use the 1 oz tub when used just on their face!
With the heat coming on, I have increased the price a little to include a freezer pack. Temps inside mail carrier vehicles can exceed 120F and, just like chocolate, my butters can't tolerate that level of heat. No need to order a freezer pack! I only ship Monday through Wednesday when there is extremely hot weather.
Concentrated, so only the smallest amount is needed. Apply a little and pat your skin with water.
Organic Rose Hips promote collagen production and are rich in vitamin C, carotenoids, other vitamins & minerals, and Omega 6. Historically used to even out skin tone.
Organic Queen Anne’s lace seed has a rejuvenating effect on the skin, softens, and assists with cell growth. It has been traditionally used to increase elasticity, reduce wrinkles and liver spots, and to fight skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, sores, and boils.
Sunflower Seed Oil is known for its high vitamin E content, which is crucial in the prevention of damage to sensitive skin cells by ultraviolet light, or UVA from the sun. Studies have shown that this may prevent scarring, smooth the appearance of existing wrinkles and generally improve the appearance and health of your skin.
Because of the natural occurrence of healthy carotenoids (organic pigment) and waxes which help form a protective barrier on the skin, and its low to non-comedogenic rating (pore-clogging rating), this oil is excellent when used to treat acne.
Hazelnut Oil is a light and dry oil that is particularly good for those that are prone to acne. Hazelnut oil lightens dark spots and acne scars, soothes irritated and inflamed skin, is easily absorbed by the skin and is a great astringent.
Organic Coriander (when available) contains antioxidants, complexion-friendly minerals and skin boosting vitamin C. It's a potent anti-bacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, disinfectant, anti-inflammatory and is soothing to the skin. It has been traditionally used for eczema, itchy skin, rashes and inflammation. The anti-bacterial properties of coriander seeds work as an effective home remedy for pimples, acne and blackheads.
Unrefined Shea Butter is a highly prized, non-comedogenic nut butter that absorbs quickly and doesn’t clog pores. It is sometimes used as a base for medicinal ointments. Some of the isolated chemical constituents are reported to have anti-inflammatory, emollient (softening) and humectant (moisturizing) properties. Shea butter has a limited capacity to absorb ultraviolet radiation. It naturally contains beneficial elements that help regenerate worn skin cells and support elasticity and flexibility of cell walls such as Vitamins A, E, F and K and the three essential fatty acids.
Sunflower seed lecithin is a humectant which means it attracts water from the surrounding air, pulls it to the lower skin levels and holds it so that an increased level of hydration is achieved. It then prevents water loss. Because it pulls moisture under the skin, it helps fill in fine lines and smooths deeper wrinkles. It helps restore the barrier function of the skin.
Lavender Steam Distilled Essential oil
"I absolutely love your tangerine butter! It keeps my face happy and healthy and the smell is amazing. I feel like a traitor admitting that I have to give serious LOVE to the Lavender butter. Over the past two years I have been under a lot of life stress and at a few times its overwhelmed me and caused my face to peel off. The first time my face had become transparent from skin loss and it was attacking my eyes making them swell shut and the itching was driving me crazy. I decided to use the lavender butter one morning and the itching stopped immediately. I spent three days battling with the lavender butter as my sword, cleaning and applying more every time the itching came back before the eye swelling stopped. Within a week I had my face back! The itching and peeling was gone and evidence of healing had begun. After two weeks I went back to my beloved tangerine butter and life was good. When the next serious stress attack hit, I remembered the lavender butter and in three days I was better and kept my layers of skin. The butter and the scent all combine to heal and I am grateful for the love you put in your work." Barbie Rucker
"I met Jamie at a Baker Creek festival back a few months ago. I absolutely HAD to try her Jasmine face cream. For the first time I had a lotion that fulfilled the needs of my patchy combination skin and didn't make me feel greasy or top heavy.... My most recent success comes with Jamie's face butter. It has a lovely lavender scent that sits nicely without overpowering my sensitive nostrils. I decided to just use it everywhere as all of my skin tends to be rather dry. After one use my scaly elbows are smooth, the dry spots on my face are gone, and my legs are almost good enough for a shaving cream commercial! In case it isn't obvious I'm a forever customer for Jamie! - Elyssa G.
"I really can't get over your Skin Butter. Beginning in my mid-20's, as soon as the air got cold and dry, it was all I could do to keep the area right above my eyebrows and especially right between them from getting dry and flaky. Anything I used only worked for a couple hours So when I kiddingly called your butter "spackle", that's why. BUT for the first time in 30 years, here we are in the middle of winter, and that skin is perfect. Even if I miss a day or two, no problem! That stuff is a miracle." ~ Tina Sams, editor/ publisher The Essential Herbal Magazine
"The face cream is amazing. I have incredibly sensitive skin and mild rosacea and this cream calms and nourishes. And, the way it just melts as you warm it is luscious and feels like a super expensive product (I've tried them), but it's even better because it's locally produced, freshly made, no animal testing, nothing but good natural ingredients. Thank you Jamie!" - Dana H.
For thousands of years, people used oils and not harsh cleansers to clean their face. Facial cleansing oils, like our Facial Cleanse, work because like attracts like - or - like dissolves like. So if you have oil or makeup on your skin, the oil cleanser will dissolve it without stripping, drying or irritating your skin.
For a quick, simple cleanse, massage a small amount of our Facial Cleanse into the skin for a couple of minutes. Wipe off with a clean cloth. I usually use a different corner of the same cloth for four days. After about 5 months using the simple cleanse technique, the small, hard to get rid of bumps under my eyes, called milia, were gone.
For a deep steam clean, after massaging the oil into the skin (wet or dry), place a warm, damp wash cloth over face until it cools. This is to open up the pores and further remove impurities. The washcloth is then used to wipe off the excess oil.
Sometimes there is an adjustment period where the skin gets a little
worse for about a week or two while the oil cleanser breaks up embedded,
hardened oils and the skin adjusts the amount of oil it creates. Resist
the urge to use soap during this period. After that, give your skin 3 –
4 weeks and hopefully, like so many others, you too may see a dramatic
