Live Botanical

Ritual Cleansing Balm

$40.00

Sweet vanilla-like tonka bean butter and rose swirl in a decadent balm to deeply clean the driest of skin conditions. Created to enliven the senses and signal the start of your skincare ritual, this beautiful blend is a powerhouse of plant nourishment.

Shea and kokum butters soften the skin while antibacterial oil infusions of St. John’s wort work to dissolve buildup. Gentle plant-based surfactants are activated by water to create a light cream cleanser to rinse away the day.

50ml

60% regionally sourced

butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter*#, garcinia indica (kokum) seed butter*#, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oil*^ & hypericum perforatum (st john's wort) flower*^, sodium cocoyl isethionate, sorbitan laurate, polyglyceryl-4 laurate, dilauryl citrate, raw beeswax*^, Dipteryx odorata (tonka) seed extract#, kaolin (white clay), iron oxide, copaifera officinalis (copaiba) resin# and rosa damascena (rose) absolute# 

*organic   |   ^regionally sourced   |   #fair trade/co-op

To foster higher standards of stewardship among the land & people we practice bioregional sourcing. Most ingredients are grown throughout the Pacific West and including our own micro-garden in Oregon.

Scoop a quarter size of balm and massage onto dry skin. With deep breaths take in the warming sweet scent to quiet the mind. Hints of rose open the heart, guiding you to listen and acknowledge what may come up during your ritual.

Spend 1 minute massaging the skin, softly working the cleanser to the bottom of the neck; draining stagnant energy. Splash with water and massage to create a light milk. Once complete, rinse well with tepid water, removing excess with a damp cloth.

Can be used daily.

Founded by deeply-studied and wealth-of-knowledge herbalist Carolyn McRory in 2016, Live Botanical started its journey as a dream that formed over 20 years ago. The heart of Live Botanical is the intense desire to connect more with Mother Nature and share her beauty and wisdom with others; and Carolyn believes the path to a more sustainable society is to encourage ideas of conservation through compassion: we must see ourselves in nature and nature within ourselves to change mindsets. Through herbal-based skincare, Carolyn is able to tell a story to help forge a relationship with the many wonders of the natural world. With vivid botanical imagery and products designed for personal care, she hopes we are reminded every day of the beauty in the world and, more importantly, the beauty that lives within each of us.

Live Botanical’s philosophy is based upon four guiding principles: to live beautiful, to live fresh, to live responsible, and to live simple.

To Live Beautiful - Formulas are rooted in creating balance and harmony, and to enhance what makes each of us unique because they believe that loving who we are at this moment and following our intuition is where beauty begins.

To Live Fresh – Whole plant infusions, botanical extracts, unrefined oils, waxes, and butters are at the core of every product. Infusions and extracts are created in-house in their Portland, Oregon studio. And they start with locally- and regionally-sourced fresh herbs from small farms or their own micro-garden that they dry in house (instead of purchasing pre-dried herbs) as much as possible to ensure the potency and quality meets their high standards. They also source with an idea of using abundant herbs to limit their impact on the earth.

To Live Responsible - Both environmental and social responsibility are value statements they hold dear in every decision made. Sourcing follows strict guidelines, and ingredients not obtained regionally are fair-trade certified (when applicable). They work with farmers and producers who follow organic guidelines or ethical wildharvesting using rules outlined by United Plant Savers. Oils, butters, and waxes must be GMO free and unrefined or minimally refined depending on formulation requirements. Preservatives and lab-based ingredients are researched extensively for environmental impact and personal safety. They also actively give back to organizations who honor environmental stewardship and who work to uplift marginalized communities relating to equality and justice.

To Live Simple - They embrace the art of slow living by taking time to connect more with plants and customers to impart feelings of love, patience, and acceptance. Products are crafted to bridge current knowledge and traditional wisdom into every formula. They consider themselves anti-capitalists. This means they remain purposefully small with extremely low overhead to ensure products are affordable and markups are as low as possible. Their goals are based in the love of nature and helping others connect to the outside world.
