The base of this potent treatment oil is our fresh, organic Sonoran jojoba oil, a fantastically effective oil that can be used for hair, face, and body and is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and non-comedogenic. Jojoba is one of two oils that are the most structurally similar to the skin's natural oil.
Native to the Southwestern desert, Ocotillos are large spindly shrubs composed of thorn covered canes which, much of the year, appear lifeless. With enough rainfall they sprout leaves and bright orange, edible flowers that are much loved by hummingbirds. All parts of the plant are medicinal and we added this natural wonder because it has toning properties that help to move lymphatic fluid and stimulate venous circulation and can help to reduce puffiness and swelling.
Lavender is a KB favorite because it has been used to treat an array of skin conditions and maladies for thousands of years. Used by the Egyptians for mummification, prescribed by medieval physicians to treat migraines, and for centuries English farmers put lavender flowers in their hats to prevent headaches. For skin, lavender is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial making it a fantastic tool to combat eczema, dermatitis, dry and chapped skin, and acne. Calming and grounding to the senses, the scent of lavender also has anti-depressive qualities and is used extensively in aromatherapy to mitigate anxiety, insomnia, and mental exhaustion.
