with red rose, wildflower honey and linden blossom
Mellonia is named in honour of the ancient Greek goddess of honey and the majestic bee. Infused over three moon cycles with wild yarrow, cottage roses and foraged linden flowers, this cleansing balm has been specially designed to deeply nourish your skin as you wash away impurities. It also works as a nourishing mask, gently hydrating your skin with raw organic honey and plant oils of camellia and jojoba.
The ritual ~ To cleanse skin, wet face with warm water, then gently massage a small amount of balm into your skin using your fingers. Dampen face cloth with hot water and press to the skin to remove balm. To use as a mask, simply apply a generous amount to damp skin and allow the goodness to soak in while you shower, bathe or take some time to relax. To remove, gently press a hot cloth to your skin allowing it to infuse the botanicals further. Repeat as many times as desired. We like to follow this by blending a few drops of serum and floral water in the palm of your hand and massaging into your face, neck and collarbones.
For external use only. If it comes into contact with eyes, wash immediately and see doctor if symptoms arise. Do not apply to broken or irritated skin.
How to care for your potion ~ Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight and use within 12 months of opening. Make sure not to get water or anything else in the jar as the longevity of the balm will be reduced considerably. .
