This unique, multifaceted facial mist is so much more than an ordinary hydrosol. Cistus and Moonlight combines carefully-sourced, ultra-effective cistus hydrosol with a variety of medicinally-prepared gem and flower essences for a mist that is healing on both a physical and emotional level.
Cistus is a variety of rock rose that grows prolifically in the wild in Spain and Portugal. Its essential oil is nurturing, nondrying, and extremely mild, yet has powerfully effective wrinkle-reducing, antibacterial, and anti-acne properties. The cistus used in this mist is produced with love and care by an artisan Portuguese distiller, who harvests the plants by hand with a sickle and then distills the hydrosol in a reconstructed watermill using water from the clean stream in front of it. This “Portuguese beauty water” has a beautifully sweet, rich, resinous, honey-like floral smell. The hydrosol is then set to infuse under a full moon, which amplifies its healing properties corresponding to the yin, or feminine element.
The mist includes a few gem and flower essences, each chosen for their unique healing properties. Rainbow moonstone gem essence is especially recommended for women and for mothers, as it regulates hormones and strongly enhances women’s yin qualities, especially receptivity and patience. Mangano calcite gem essence is helpful for healing painful memories and emotional wounds, and clear quartz gem essence clears the head, lifts fatigue and lethargy, and eliminates old, toxic, stale, and unhealthy energies. The flower essences include monkshood essence, which is spiritually enlightening and helps to achieve clarity of one’s purpose and destiny, as well as Pacific Northwest pink phlox essence, which enhances one’s innate gentleness, sweetness, and softness and promotes blissful sleep.
Cistus and Moonlight can be used daily as a facial toner to increase the skin’s firmness, reduce wrinkles, and nourish the skin on a purely physical level. Or, to go beyond the physical benefits and fully attune to the vibrational elements from the gem and flower essences, use the mist three to four times a day and allow a moment to meditate over the gems’ and flowers’ healing properties. The mist is handcrafted with care in the United States and is vegan, cruelty free, and cold process.
