Our former Oily/Combination Elixir did not change too much in scent. It still smells mostly of Chamomile, and a wild herbal flower garden. We did swap our Neroli essential oil for a beautiful California Orange Blossom enfleurage, which smells a bit more herbaceous and well-rounded, but still has that light Orange Blossom ethereal dancing scent. Genuine German Chamomile has been increased by a bit for its soothing and cooling azulene content. We have added a few additional whole plant herbal extracts such as Milky Oat Tops for B vitamins and a deeper hydration, Passionflower for quelling reactive skin, and Turmeric for immediate inflammatory relief.
*Not to be confused with the negative side effects of isolated lab-made salicylic – this is within the context of the delicate healing Meadowsweet plant.
Shake product well with each use and mist generously and directly onto skin after cleansing, prior to a Serum or Balm.
Store this product in a cool, dry and dark place. Use within 6 months of opening and within 12 months of the manufacture date, which is noted on the bottom of the bottle.
Laurel Says - Science: It is a common misconception that oily skin doesn’t need hydration. Hydration (water) and moisture (oil) are two different things. Most oily skin types are commonly dehydrated as well. Most toners are stripping, drying, and designed to breakdown oils and our natural lipid barrier. This leads to TEWL, trans-epidermal water loss, which leads to dehydrated skin. This Elixir, on the other hand, is centered around hydration and soothing inflammation. By offering the skin hydration and anti-inflammatory plants, balance is restored.
Ritual: Any time my skin is in a state of inflammation, this is one of my go-to products. Whether that inflammation is showing up as cystic acne, rosacea, perioral dermatitis, hyperpigmentation, or simply too much sun – inflammation is always the root cause to address and the surface level symptoms simply correct themselves when inflammation is reduced. I love this product for all secondary symptoms of inflammation. For the ultimate cooling experience, I keep an extra bottle of this Elixir in the fridge for whenever my skin needs extra soothing love…and on sun burns it can be a life
Chamomile – This German Chamomile Hydrosol, grown and distilled in the Pacific Northwest, is the ultimate cooler, soother, and reliever for reactive, red, inflamed or acneic skin. It is a true skin game-changer, and is as powerful and strong as it is calming.
Lavender – Our Biodynamic® Lavender Hydrosol from California is a rare treasure. It is anti-inflammatory, calming, and cooling to the skin, and has a balancing action to oil production, pH, and our microbiome.
Turmeric – Our whole plant organic Turmeric extract is deeply anti-inflammatory to reactive skin and acneic skin. It is brightening, and contains an abundance of flavonoids and polyphenols for antioxidant activity.
Meadowsweet – Deep pore clarifying Meadowsweet is a soothing and balancing plant. It is cleansing and purifying, while at the same time calms and reduces irritation in the skin. Meadowsweet is also a source of salicylic acid while simultaneously offering anti-inflammatory and mucilagenous compounds, making the sometimes negative effects of salicylic nonexistent.
Lemon Balm – This unique hydrosol and essential oil is rare and delicate. Its high antioxidant content is specific to cellular renewal and repair. It also has a lymph affinity, and can have a balancing effect on our surface immunity.
Helichrysum – Pacific Northwest grown and artisan distilled, our Helichrysum Hydrosol is no doubt a powerful medicine. Cooling and soothing Helichrysum is deeply regenerative to the skin by restoring health and vitality on a cellular level.

Laurel Whole Plant Organics is a flower and herb based facial care line, firmly rooted in mindful beauty rituals, taking purity and efficacy to a new level by using the highest quality, artisan ingredients. A 100% organic, raw, unrefined, whole plant line, Laurel sources directly from bio-dynamic farms, handcrafting each product with love, integrity and unparalleled purity. Every formula is alcohol and water free, and made using the purest, most effective vibrant plants. Whether in spa or at home, Laurel Whole Plant Organics believes beauty should be a loving ritualistic practice that begins with nurturing self-care.
Our promise to our customers and ourselves is to never use parabens, synthetic fragrances, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, GMOs, non-organically grown plants, or any toxic chemical of any kind. Laurel WPO is committed to your health, well-being and your beautiful skin. It is a common misconception that putting toxins on your face is actually good for your skin – we beg to differ. A synthetic antioxidant in the presence of an abundance of carcinogens isn’t even remotely as powerful as pure antioxidants found in whole plants. Your skin can only handle so much harsh chemical treatment, before it starts to become harmful to your skin.
The Laurel line is also about taking time to care for yourself. We are strongly rooted in the spa and resort industry, which has taught us that slowing down and taking time to have a cup of tea and take a bath, really does take years off for the mind, body, and spirit. Everything we do is done with love; from the season it takes to grow our plants, to the months our handmade blends sit steeping, to the minutes we spend bottling a batch. From the farm to the lab – the whole making process is done with love and care, and you will feel that when you use our products. Make your skin care routine something you take time to do for yourself and it will be that much more powerful.
