Made with wildcrafted juniper from the mountains above Santa Fe, New Mexico, our juniper is distilled for hours with ultra-pure water that we filter twelve times to make sure that your skin is getting a pure distillation of juniper. Known for its ability to accelerate cellular turnover, juniper hydrosol is excellent for oily skin types, ingrown hairs, and signs of acne. Fights both inflammation and bacteria.
Every year around this time of year, we dig into our professional skincare stashes to bring you our juniper hydrosol for home use.
Juniper hydrosol is a perfect ally for winter skin because it contains juniperic acid, a slightly exfoliating component of the hydrosol that aids your skin in cellular turnover.
This juniper hydrosol is like no other on a heart level; simply because of the land it’s grown on. Grown in the untouched New Mexico desert, the Juniper trees that fill this land have been there for thousands of years; they have survived harsh cold winters, droughts that last for decades, and violent desert storms, and yet they thrive.
Many herbal medicine makers believe that desert plants that have more demanding lives are more powerful. Natural selection, only the strong survive. This Juniper hydrosol holds extra magic; its power and beauty to transform skin are unreal. It’s a permanent part of our professional back bar because of that.
We only release it to the general public once a year, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. We wild harvest our Juniper, meaning that we take from nature, we do not grow our own, so we are conscious of our wild harvesting practices and only take from healthy trees and never over harvest.
In order to have enough for Estheticians to use all over the country, we hold most of our hydrosols for the treatment room. This year we produced 300 bottles for you. Juniper hydrosol is amazing for most skin types that need exfoliation, razor burn, or as an aftershave. Known for its ability to accelerate cellular turnover, juniper hydrosol is excellent for oily skin types, ingrown hairs, and signs of acne. It fights both inflammation and bacteria. It can also be enjoyed aromatically as an aromatic cleanser for the air. And is an excellent addition to any of our powdered masks to add an exfoliating element to your home masking ritual. This juniper is from my Mothers land in the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico; it brings me so much joy to create such a loved tonic for your skin from the land of enchantment. This year’s juniper’s image is the heart of the tree; it’s beautiful wood grain.
