Sunflower Seed Oil
As its name suggests, sunflower seed oil is extracted from the seeds of sunflowers. A great source of vitamin E, sunflower oil has emollient properties which help the skin to retain its moisture by locking it within its cells. This oil’s wealth of vitamin E & A also provide antioxidants which protect the skin from harmful UV rays & other environmental stressors. Sunflower seed oil is also high in omega-6 fatty acids, which provide anti-inflammatory properties that help to lower skin redness & roughness, while also enhancing the development of new skin cells. Due to its overall cooling nature, Ayurveda considers sunflower oil to be the most balancing oil for pitta-type skin.
First grown in India, gotu kola can be found in the Himalayan Mountain Range. According to Dr. Frawley, a leading Ayurvedic doctor, yogis ingest the plant prior to meditation because of its calming, stabilizing effects on the body & mind. Gotu kola is a brain tonic, as it revitalizes brain cells & is also packed with vitamin C. We include this powerful plant into our infusion for its bitter, cooling & purifying effects on pitta-type skin.
Did you know that coriander is the seed of a cilantro plant? Commonly used in Indian curry & Ayurvedic cooking to promote healthy digestion, coriander, when used both internally & topically, helps maintain a clear complexion by reducing the excess heat brought on by an imbalance in pitta dosha. It also promotes feelings of relaxation thanks to its sweet, herbaceous aroma.

What makes our body oils truly unique is the way in which they are prepared. The power of whole herb plant medicine is slowly infused into our oils over multiple days to allow for complete infusion of their beneficial actions & healing energetics. Aromatherapeutic properties of essential oils are then added to enhance their fragrance & vibration to a whole new level of skin support.
