Science: The skin cannot function in a healthy way if it is chronically inflamed. Inflammation exists in the body to jump-start the healing process. However, due to diet, stress, and lifestyle, most of us have become chronically inflamed. This means that we live in a state of constant inflammation and that inflammation is no longer kick-starting the healing process. Plants work on inflammation in a unique way that makes the whole inflammatory to healing cycle easier, as it should be. When inflammation is addressed, many other symptoms fall away because the body and/or skin is able to function as it should.
Ritual: The Recovery Balm becomes my go-to facial balm when I am battling cystic acne. I also use it to prevent or address irritation from shaving or waxing. I also use it when my spoiled dog gets a rash. I use it on sunburns. There are so many different self-care rituals in which the Recovery Balm works its way into my own life, it is hard to choose just one example to share with you! But I would have to say my most favorite way to use it is as my air travel staple! Flying is so incredibly hard on my body, mind, and skin; so traveling with an arsenal of helpers is essential. I always have a travel-sized Elixir with me to fully saturate my skin with hydration, and then I apply a layer of Recovery Balm to seal it in to avoid dehydrating my skin during the flight. The anti-inflammatory actions, as well as soothing scents in our Recovery Balm, help to keep my skin and my mind at ease during travel.
Helichrysum – This little yellow flower is as gentle as it is potent. It reduces redness and swelling. It strengthens tissues and supports cellular healing activity, and reduces the appearance of scars and broken capillaries.
Tamanu – There is no replacement for the deep cool green Tamanu oil, which is a sacred ancient plant medicine of the tropics. It is anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antibacterial, stimulates skin immunity, and has a unique phytonutrient profile specific to skin healing.
Pomegranate – This is quite possibly the most beautiful oil that we work with. It is rich and thick by nature, but penetrates deeply and is incredibly healing to skin barriers that have been damaged over time by inflammation.
Calendula – Our vibrant Biodynamic® Calendula is farmed and harvested mindfully for Laurel Skin. Calendula is deeply restorative and healing on a cellular level. It is excellent for scarring and all forms of skin damage.
Lavender – Our Biodynamic® Lavender essential oil is anti-inflammatory, calming and cooling to the skin. It promotes healthy cell functioning and prevents harmful bacteria from overpopulating the skin.
Lemon Balm – This nutrient-rich green leaf, also known as Melissa is high in delicate antioxidants that work swiftly to reduce free radical damage. It is specific to mending and soothing inflamed and problematic skin and has been studied extensively for its anti-viral properties.

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.
