Aurora is versatile and easy to use. Apply to dry skin to remove every trace of makeup and daily grime, then remove with a damp cloth. Once makeup is removed, you can emulsify a chickpea sized amount of balm with water to create a milky, creamy skin cleanser. As it contains only skin-beneficial ingredients, and can be left on skin as a moisturizer or as a mask. Try on hands, elbows, fly-away hair, cuticles and more. Good for both mature or acne-prone skin.
Aurora replenishes skin with antioxidant-rich oils and butters, such as linoleic acid-rich pumpkin seed, regenerative sea buckthorn and deeply nourishing organic Cacao, kokum and mango seed butters (and more!).
Who is it for?:
* If you have known sensitivities to citrus oils or any of the ingredients listed, this product may not be suitable for you.
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.
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.
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!

Stark's luxury oil is nourishing and soothing to the skin, rich in Omegas, antioxidants and bioflavonoids that skin craves.
Who is it for?:
What it does: Just 5 drops is enough to restore tired skin to a dewy, youthful glow. Each precious oil was selected to regenerate collagen and elasticity in the skin, rebalance pH and barrier function, soften, soothe and heal skin as well as reduce pigmentation marks and scars. Rich in GLAs, palmitoleic acid, anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants, (all of which skin needs desperately by the age of 30) this is the night time elixir your skin has been crying out for. This is an incredibly luxe oil, if we do say so.
Reverse bottle and hold still for 3 seconds...no tapping or shaking (or, gasp! smacking) of the bottle. Use 5 drops (or more as needed), and press onto your chin, cheeks and forehead, then smooth onto skin in an upward motion (work against gravity...not WITH it.) Please note that some sedimentation can occur.

A fresh-scented feather-light hair oil designed for fine, delicate hair to unruly, coarse hair. For wildly natural tendrils of happy hair.
The tangled vines and knotted palms reach for the canopy. Moss covers the floor like lush 1970s carpeting. The air is rich with oxygen, and everywhere life bursts from every seam of the rainforest. So rich, so lush, with leaves so thick and glossy, vines so strong, you are overcome by the beauty, by this nearly brutal energy each plant exhibits to thrive, to overtake, to grow to incredible new size. "Hair goals," you whisper to nobody in particular, and smile to yourself as you hike on.
A feather-light yet deeply nourishing hair oil with a similar weight and feel to a classic silicone hair serum but created purely with carefully selected plant oils, of course! This oil adds strength and manageability, increases hairs elasticity and protects against the elements with antioxidants. Nourishes and softens tough tresses, won't weigh down fine hair, and helps promote growth. The cleansing scent will detoxify a congested scalp (if using as a pre-shampoo), and perfume your locks with a an herbal-floral freshness. Use as an overnight hair mask or as a leave-in styling product, before or after drying hair.
Can be used as a leave-on hair styling product, as a pre-shampoo oil or as an overnight hair mask!
Fine hair: Start with just 1-2 drops, and apply through the ends of damp or dry hair. Add 1 drop at a time, as needed. Be careful not to apply too close to the roots, to avoid looking greasy.
Thicker hair: Start with 3 drops, and apply from ends, eventually working way up hair length.
For straight hair, brush out your tendrils once hair is dry. Leave as-is for more defined tendrils and curls.
As a mask or pre-shampoo: Apply 2-3 times the amount you need as a styler, (so 6-10 drops), massage in well then proceed with shower or sleep or what have you.

When you need just a dab of something potent to stop an eruption right in it's tracks. This treatment is packed full of traditional and modern pimple-soothing ingredients...and smells nice, too!
When naming this product, I was thinking about volcanic words. Magma? Lava? Explosion vent? I was trying to bring a little humour to a pimple treatment, but nothing seemed right. It felt too violent, and when you have one of those painful "subterranean" pimples forming, waiting to erupt? You're not really in the mood to giggle, and you certainly don't want to make light of the aggression on your skin. So my copywriter's hat went back on. Out of nowhere, the French word "éteint" came to me... one of those moments when being bilingual is really helpful! Eteint (prononced /etɛ̃, ɛ̃t/... although I can't really tell you how to read those pronunciation things) means to extinguish, or put something out, like a light or a fire. Or a volcano, if you're a goddess. It's such a soft, sexy word. The French have the tendency to make words like that. Anyhow, that's the kind of soft-yet-efficient power you are getting with this spot treatment.
ETEINT is a spot treatment that doesn't leave you smelling like a medicine cabinet. Sweet and fresh, just one drop applied to an inflamed area will help decrease the size and pain of a pimple, allowing it to speed up and disappear quicker...or perhaps stop a blemish from forming at all! It will also help decrease healing time and discoloration of blemishes. Use often (2-3x a day) and use as soon as you feel a pimple forming for best results.
NOTE: Not to be applied over the entire face! Avoid mouth and eye area. This product contains more essential oils than a regular face oil, and isn't meant to be worn over large patches of skin.
Who is it for?:
After cleansing skin and moisturizing, apply 1 drops to the back of your hand, and use fingertips to lightly dab onto blemish. Let the oil be soaked into the affected area. Spot-test if you have very sensitive skin.15 mL
