Certified organic and naturally grown and distilled in the American Southwest, our pure Immortelle hydrosol is produced by steam distillation of helichrysum flowers and stems in small batches, yielding a potent and effective herbaceous tonic that softens and rejuvenates skin, and prepares the face for oils, creams, and cosmetics.
Also known as everlasting, Immortelle has a long history of medicinal and topical use. Once dried as an offering to the Greek gods, Immortelle has earned a reputation as healing and calming to sensitive or damaged skin. An anti-inflammatory and restorative for skin damaged by free radicals, Immortelle can also help stimulate cellular regeneration, clarify the complexion and reduce redness, lighten age spots and discoloration, and prevent dryness. Use twice daily to lock in hydration, give skin an overall glow, and a more even and vibrant appearance.
Our pure Immortelle toner can be misted onto the face with an atomizer, splashed on by pouring a small amount into the palm of one hand and then rubbing hands together and applying to face, or applied with a cottonball.
Mix with our Lava Detox Clay Mask, Blue Earth Mask, or Tepezcohuite Healing Mask instead of water to supercharge and enhance the qualities of each.
The beautifully crafted bottle is hand blown by a revolutionary glassblowing studio in Oaxaca, Mexico, one of the most economically disadvantaged communities in the country. The studio has spent the last fifteen years perfecting not only their craft of glassblowing, but the sustainable and ecological way that they run their facility. Through much experimentation they've learned to create beauty from waste – they produce their own fuel and power their furnaces, glory holes, and annealing ovens using processed, used vegetable oil from local restaurants, methane gas produced on-site from a combination of cow and pig manure, and blood from a local butcher. Other equipment is solar powered and the glass itself is made from recycled bottles brought to the studio by waste pickers, restaurants, and locals because there are no municipal recycling programs in the area. During a typical week, 550 pounds of discarded glass is recycled and used to create beautiful, handmade vessels and home goods.
