  • Charging With Crystals

    Crystals have long been used for their energetic and healing benefits. Incorporating them into skincare rituals and wellness products elevates their healing constituents providing you with a unique and active modality with which you skin can heal. Different Crystals have different benefits, but overall they help to activate the skin in order to heal, help to combat skin damaging free radicals, and increase cellular production within the skin.
    Here are some of our favorites:

    Bloodstone: Known for its detoxifying, stimulatory, and anti-inflammatory properties. Was traditionally used to heal skin rashes and fight infection. It also aids in the healing of bad energy, anxiety, and depression.


    Selenite: Selenite draws negative energy away from the body, kind of like a spiritual detox. It's the recommended stone to use to address specific skin concerns such as acne, eczema, psoriasis or really dry skin. Selenite aids in clearing the energetic body of blockages which may be manifesting as a skin issue.


    Aquamarine: Cool blue aquamarine is a cooling stone in more than one way. Aquamarine can cool anger and fear. This gem also cools down (alleviates) the symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema, hives, allergic rashes, rosacea, and psoriasis, and it may also help prevent outbreaks of herpes. Removing the aggravating factor or factors and supporting physical calming will naturally result in smoother skin surface. It also has cell regenerative properties to improve new cell growth and skin longevity.


    Emerald: One of the most powerful skin gems, Emeralds have powerful healing properties that help to fight off energy blockages, and has very powerful anti-oxidant properties to help fight off damage from free radicals, sun, and environmental factors.  

  • Ingredient Spotlight: Sunflower Oil

    Sunflower Oil- Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil


    Sunflower oil is an effective emollient, which means that it helps the skin retain moisture. Thus, people with dry skin can benefit immensely from the regular use of the oil. Additionally, acne is caused when excess oil and sebum, that gets blocked in the follicles under the skin, gets infected by bacteria. The vitamins A, C, D, and E, along with the essential fatty acids that are present in sunflower oil form a protective layer, which prevents bacteria from coming in contact with the skin.

    This is why we use Sunflower Oil as the base oil in our White Yarrow & Red Clover Facial Cleanser. Sunflower Oil, combined with our botanical infusion and charged with the gem aquamarine, will coat your skin in regenerative and soothing properties without stripping it of it's natural oil production. The result? Glowing, calm, and radiant skin. 

  • PM Rituals

    We love our Pm Rituals, and we strongly believe that a beauty routine can be a sacred act in which we take the time to regenerate and heal ourselves. Although it may seem as though you are simply washing away the day, an evening beauty ritual can go beyond that- allowing you intentional time to release stress, take care of yourself, and infuse gratitude into your evening. 

    This step-by-step guide of our H2a Botanical's Pm Rituals is the perfect combination of curated products and healing modalities to end your day off with glowing skin and a full heart.

     

    Face

    Step 1: Heal Salve (Cleansing Salve) 


    Begin by applying a dime sized amount to dry skin with fingers. Add a small amount of water and massage gently in small circular motions. Gently remove with a warm washcloth and follow with our White Yarrow & Red Clover Facial Cleanser. 

     

     

    Step 2: White Yarrow & Red Clover Cleanser & Cleansing Granules

    This lightly foaming oil cleanse will gently remove dirt and toxins from your pores, while soothing botanicals work to reduce inflammation. Gently wet face and neck and massage 3-4 pumps of cleanser onto damp skin in small circular motions. Cleansing granules can be added for extra exfoliation. Gently remove with a warm washcloth, sweeping upwards from the neck. This luxurious and earthy cleanser will leave your skin clean and infused with essential vitamins and minerals.

    Step 3: Phytonutrient & Aloe Toner 

    After cleansing, follow with our Phytonutrient & Aloe Toner. The combination of flower hydrosols, phytosqualane, and micellar water will aide to absorb any left over dirt particles, while strengthening and soothing the barrier of the skin. Hold 6 inches away from face and spray 5-6 times, soaking in the aromatherapy benefits and gently tapping onto problem areas for extra absorption and healing. 

    Step 4: Rosehip & Saffron Emerald Serum

    Immediately following the toner, massage 5-6 drops of the Rosehip & Saffron Emerald Serum onto the skin using tips of the fingers. Gently massage in circular motions, paying extra attention to areas that are in need of hydration, toning, and radiance. This is by far our favorite product; combining herbs, botanicals, and gems to provide your skin with an unparalleled glow.
