A golden shape-shifter. A nimble traveller. An aromatic companion, with rich blood orange and spicy, earthy notes. From solid to liquid, clear to opaque, cleansing, moisturizing, uplifting and relaxing; an ultra-versatile cleansing & makeup-removing balm that rinses clean, or can be left on skin to soothe and moisturize.
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 nibble breakfast. The room is quiet, still, before the world wakes up.
This highly nutritious, water-less balm has the unique concept of being both cleanser and moisturizer, making life simple and beautiful (oh, you didn't know all you needed was this balm? Yep!). This delicious, transforming balm melts away daily grime and dirt by disappearing into a cleansing oil on contact with skin, then rinsing away with a milky texture once water is massaged onto skin, replenishing your skin with healthy, antioxidant-rich plant-derived oils and butters, such as linoleic acid-rich pumpkin seed, regenerative sea buckthorn and deeply nourishing organic Shea and mango seed butters. Next, the balm can be used as a moisturizer, alone or with a Stark oil. Create a thick mask for an overnight hydration treatment, apply to dry body parts, use as a lip balm or simply gaze at the balm lovingly... AURORA does it all! Blood orange, turmeric, pettitgrain and wild katrafay are the star essential oils, regenerating cells and deeply cleansing skin from impurities.
Who is it for?:
* Those with very sensitive skin may find this balm a little irritating (although most do not). If you have known sensitivities to citrus oils or coconut oil, this product may not be suitable for you.
There are many ways to use AURORA
1. Use a pea sized amount, and warm between fingers. Massage into dry skin or wet skin and let the nutritious oils and butters be soaked up before gently wiping away with a warm, wet cloth. 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 pea-sized amount in the palm of your hand, slowly add a few drops of warm water and emulsify, creating a cleansing OR hydrating lotion!
3. Next, it can be used as a beauty balm moisturizer for face, body, lips and hair! A perfect skin prep under your daily SPF!

Blood orange essential oil is not only cleansing and has astringent properties, but is an antioxidant powerhouse, as are turmeric and katrafay. Wonderful for occasionally problematic skin, also gentle enough for dry, sensitive skin. Has a wonderful, fresh aroma that is uplifting and invigorating, with a slightly earthy undertone. This balm smells absolutely mouth-watering. Un-processed Shea butter and raw organic cocoa butter heal, soften and protect skin with a light, natural SPF. Both have a rich history of use in Africa, which is now backed by scientific studies, they are highly healing butters that can undo some of the damage done by the sun. Virgin organic coconut oil, long used in the Ayurveda tradition, has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal .
An ultra-nourishing oil with exquisite, precious ingredients to revive skin. This luxurious blend works overtime to generate a youthful glow... while you catch up on beauty sleep!
Although this is your first time in a citrus grove at dusk, you can't help but feel this distinctly familiar feeling. It must be the scent; a fresh, uplifting floral with both a familiar citrus heart and an earthy warmth that you sense equally by your nose and somewhere deep in your body. "I must have been a Queen who bathed in neroli blossoms in a former life," you muse to yourself as you weave randomly between the stout, knotted trees. Suddenly, you slip on a ripe orange that fell beneath a tree, and although you are pulled down to the ground and feel the wet grass in your hair and the warm earth beneath your body, you are not at all hurt and laugh so hard that tears roll down your face. You have been reminded to slow down, to enjoy the stillness of the evening, to celebrate youthful joy as it comes and to take a deep breath. You look up at the branches overhead, heavy with fragrant fruit, and just beyond, watch the night sky appear, star by star.
A night-time treatment worth falling for, carefully formulated using the most nourishing oils, complete with generous doses of unique lipid superheroes such as tamanu, pomegranate, evening primrose oil, black cumin seed, black currant, seabuckthorn and more. This regenerating oil was created to help soothe, soften and replenish skin using some of the most exquisite oils available for skin that looks restored and younger (but still just as wise).
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 desparetely 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.
What it is: A medium-rich night-time oil serum that melts and absorbs into skin quickly. Neroli oil, besides being one of the most exquisite (if not THE most exquisite) essential oils available, is also an excellent healing potion for both mind and body. It is calming and relieves anxiety while helping skin to stimulate cell-regeneration which promotes a more youthful appearance. Patchouli helps ground the ethereal scent, and is also helps skin age gracefully.
Who is it for?:
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.
