Chanda Tonic Mist

The Intention

With a scent that is alluring, uplifting, and calming, Chanda encourages us to take a deep breath and reconnect to the deepest love we have for ourselves. Its base of silver hydrosol and witch hazel tones, soothes, and eliminates breakout-causing bacteria. The Chanda herbal blend - including hibiscus, gotu kola, white peony leaf, marshmallow root, and amla berry - is antioxidant-rich and loaded with vitamin C: reducing inflammation, stimulating cell renewal and repair, and increasing collagen production. And with flower essences of hibiscus and bougainvillea, this mist offers a subtle vibration of awakening goddess energy and awareness to the everyday miracles that might otherwise go unseen.

Chanda, pronounced shahn-dah, means “alluring” in Sanskrit.

The Ritual

Cleanse the face and neck. Shake well, then mist over face and neck. Follow with facial oil and serum while skin is still moist. Spritz over your face and body to rehydrate throughout the day. Makes a beautiful aphrodisiac when used on linens, and offers a soothing nights rest when misted over your pillow. 

The pAra Botanica Story

Founded by Christy Whitney-Matz out of a deeply felt calling to work in the healing arts, her phenomenal line is the culmination and journey of her self-study of herbal remedies, nutrition, and the practice of Ayurveda for 10 years before jumping off the cliff fully and committing to what is now pAra.

As a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner and a self-studied holistic living walking body of knowledge that practices what it preaches, Christy interweaves human spirit, plant spirit, and the divine in each of her creations. As a Reiki-infused holistic skincare line, pAra emphasizes the return to beauty ritual as nourishing medicine and each potion is created through intuitive sensing, visioning, and listening with the help of ancestral guides and the backing of scientific research.

All ingredients used in pAra creations are sourced carefully and with the health of Mother Earth at the forefront. All plants are organically or ethically wildcrafted, and come from small farmers who grow with love and intention from seed to harvest: nurturing the full cycle of life, and harvesting plants at their peak of medicinal potency. Extracts are created lovingly and slowly in-house, and all products are created in micro-batches in a small studio space overlooking a green cliff, listening to the sweet sounds of bird song, flutes and chimes, while being infused with a blend of Shamanic practice and Reiki life force energy. This harmonious blend of intentions and infusions manifests as blends that are healing, brimming with vitality, and vibrating with the highest plant medicine.

And, because Christy has a soft spot for horses (especially those who have been forgotten), a portion of pAra’s proceeds go toward horse rescue and recovery at one of the shelters in the Unwanted Project Exhibition.
