Who is it for

Aurora has been our best-seller since the beginning because it is so versatile, that nearly everyone can use it from head to toe.

Scent: Earthy orange creamsicle, or upscale chocolate orange, we hear both!
Texture: Mousse-like, vibrant yellow, easy to spread, super emollient.

How to use

There's no wrong way to use Aurora!

1. Use a chickpea sized amount, and warm between fingers. Massage into dry or wet skin and let the nutritious oils and butters be soaked up before gently wiping away with a warm, wet cloth. Work gentle into eyelashes to remove even waterproof mascara (can be used by those of us with sensitive eyes!). You will notice a milky emulsion occurs and can be rinsed away clean. You may splash with water if you like, for an extra-clean feel. Apply to dry face before hopping into the shower!

2. Again, using a chickpea-sized amount in the palm of your hand, slowly add a few drops of warm water, serum or mist and emulsify, creating a cleansing OR hydrating lotion that you can leave on clean skin, or rinse off as a second cleanse, like a milk cleanser.

3. Next, it can be used as a beauty balm moisturizer for face, body, lips and hair! Use on dry elbows, parched lips or fly-away hair or as a great after-shave balm! A perfect skin prep under your daily SPF!

4. Plop a scant teaspoon sized blob in a bowl, add honey, clay, a serum or mist and mix to create a custom mask.

5. Mix with mineral makeup for a custom foundation or highlighter, you crafty alchemist you! Use to blot out lipstick, or make a powder blush into a cream! 

NB: Essential oil content is well below recommended dermal limit, and are considered sunsafe, but wear SPF anyhow and do no apply right before intense sun exposure!

Story

A balm inspired by the simple pleasures that anchor your day. A quiet moment in the early morning, golden light beginning to pour in through the window. Speckles of sparkling dust caught in the sunshine, drifting silently as you sip your coffee and enjoy breakfast. The room is quiet, still, before the world wakes up. Your potted jade looks plump, the leaves catching rays of sunshine. Your cat grooms herself contentedly, stop for a moment and you stare at one another. You both feel it. It's going to be a good day.

Story:

Together you ran laughing and hollering from the street corner and leaped over a great puddle and into the park's front gates. Like wild children you ran the gravel paths, winding through the great coniferous trees. The rain comes down so hard it's impossible to pretend that you might make it home dry, and so you playfully kick water from a puddle and watch the stream of water disappear into the falling droplets. Blocks away, traffic rages on. But in this park, you are protected.
