versatile - effective - easy
We love Cleansing Grains! They are easy to use - just add water or hydrosol. They are versatile - use as a weekly mask, or daily cleansing. Super simple...or add honey, yogurt, or oil. You can customize your treatment with a few drops of our Boost, Elixir or a custom essential oil blend.
Alchemy offers two types of heritage inspired recipes: one chic pea & turmeric, the other with rice bran & rice flour.
Don't let the turmeric one scare you. Turmeric may leave a golden glow, but only temporarily (though we do recommend using 'old' face cloths and towel, just in case). Packed with warming spices and inherently detoxifying - Maybe use only as a cleanser -not a mask- if your skin is particularly reactive.
Rice Bran or 'Komenuka' is full of anti-oxidants, vitamins and moisturizing proteins. Gently exfoliating, brightening, and fortified by Alchemy with ginger, rosewood and petitigrain to stimulate the liver which clarifies the skin from the inside out.
(organic where possible, always minimally processed)

'Regimen' sounds like such a burden. Sometimes people say, 'what is your skin care regimen'.
Now 'Ritual'... a ritual sounds like an invitation.
I believe that when we attend to our tasks of home making and self care that the habit takes on a meditative or ritual quality.
So perhaps not everyday is dedicated to much time spent on cleansing, nourishing, basking and enjoying - -maybe a slightly speeder gotta get it done - - but it IS important to answer the invitation.
It seems reasonable to set aside a space in every week, if you can't spare it in every day, to really attend. To make self care a ritual.
