Indigo Face Mask
Gentle clay and healing medicinal herbs grown in harmony with the earth on Root. Rise.’s beyond-organic, stunning land in northern California unite to create a mask that deeply soothes and balances.
Japanese indigo and yarrow (which grow side by side on Root. Rise.’s farm – dancing together in the wind and growing strong and healthy as a pair) unify to deliver indigo’s help with inflammation, redness, and eczema, and yarrow’s healing, tightening, and detoxifying abilities.
So light some candles. Breathe deeply. Set an intention. Apply this mask as an act of self-love, and know that you are held, loved, and at peace.
Kaolin clay, Japanese indigo* (Persicaria tinctoria), Yarrow* (Achillea millefolium)
*organically homegrown in harmony with the earth
Light candles, set an intention. Mix a tablespoon of mask with water or hydrosol. Do not use anything sugar based, as it could potentially activate the blue. Apply to face, neck, chest, back, or wherever needed, and marinate in the magic. Wash once dry and emanate your unique radiance. This mask can also be used as an exfoliant; mix in wet hands onto wet face and scrub gently.
Founded by Jess Brown (a truly magical human!), Root, Rise. was brought to life on a truly stunning piece of Northern California land onto which Jess moved with her partner 5 years ago…that led to many new experiences such as gardening, homesteading, and hearing the beauty in nature’s symphony of seasons. Over time she found herself constantly asking questions in her everyday life, like how can I grow this? How can I make this? She wanted either a fresher product, where she knew the origin of the ingredients, or one with fewer ingredients altogether.
This curiosity was part of the reason that Jess and her partner started Happy Hearts Farm in 2016. It was a leap into the unknown: neither of them had worked on a farm, or really grown much food for that matter. Going on year five, they now have some experience under their belts – enough to confidently face the exciting (and not so exciting) challenges ahead. And Jess is always introducing more medicinal herbs to the space…with a hope to grow large amounts within the near future.
What makes Root, Rise. creations so special and powerful? Well, Jess heart-crafts her products in micro batches with the herbs that she grows and harvests seasonally in her Northern California garden. She is not only the maker, but also the grower – the products hold the essence of the relationship between her and the land. She tends, respects, and communes with the land, and in turn it provides magically medicinal material.
She places an emphasis on self-care rituals infused with so much intention and tender care. Her products invite our connection to the earth, and help us to feel whole, loved, and inspired to live a beautiful life.
