The jojoba shrub played an important role in skincare for Native Americans across the Southwest. Jojoba was an invaluable ally for the Native peoples due to its healing, protective qualities.
Jojoba oil is a humectant. Humectants seal our skin with a protective barrier that prevents our skin from losing moisture. Jojoba oil also contains natural forms of vitamin E which works as an antioxidant that can help skin prevent daily oxidative stress caused by pollutants and toxins in the environment. It helps regulate sebum production because it is so similar to the sebum that our skin produces naturally. This allows jojoba to be readily absorbed into the skin, unlike some oils that sit on top of the skin and feel oily for hours after application. The regulation of sebum production means that jojoba can keep the skin from looking oily and helps prevent acne caused by clogged pores.
Six different essential oils, all with their own unique skincare properties, synergize together to create a powerhouse of plant medicine. Frankincense is the most plentiful of all the essential oils in Self Honor. Frankincense is harvested by creating small incisions on the trunks of Boswellia Trees. The trees then produce a sap to repair the incisions on the surface of their bark; this sap hardens to form frankincense resin. This process is a divine reflection of the interconnectedness of all things; just as the Boswellia trees produce frankincense to repair their outermost layer, we too can use frankincense to heal our skin. The potency of frankincense is something that can only be experienced. Words do no justice to the sacred purity of the physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional benefits of this miraculous, biblically referenced plant ally. Every ingredient of Self Honor offers its own unique properties and energy that harmonize together to create a product that is truly supportive and healing on every level. Lime and Orange essential oils are full of antioxidants like vitamin C that protect our skin from harmful free radicals and leave skin glowing. Cedarwood has powerful anti inflammatory properties. Orange blossom (neroli) stimulates skin cells to regenerate, giving it powerful anti-scarring properties. Orange Blossom is great for reducing the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and acne. Vetiver essential oil nourishes the skin with its anti inflammatory and anti microbial properties and is ideal for treating clogged pores.
