Say goodbye to heavy metal-based colour! Alkanet and beet root give this natural stain rich hints of blackberry, wine, and a little pink, along with a mild and earthy scent. Just a touch of essential oil of rose geranium is used for a light fragrance, and for its mild antibacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties - which all aid in the overall health of the skin. Rose geranium is commonly used in aromatherapy to reduce nervousness and tension. A little dab of this stuff on the apples of your cheeks and on your lips adds just the right dose of color. Because of the beeswax, this stain has great staying power. Put a little on for a subtle effect or more for a lipstick like look.
Heads up: Some find the smell of the alkanet root too earthy for their tastes- alkanet has a flave akin to valerian root.
Ingredients: alkanet root* and beet root* infused sunflower oil*, beeswax, essential oil of rose geranium*
