I handcraft these balms starting with growing my own herbs organically in the high desert here in New Mexico. It is a passion of mine to create all natural and organic skincare, I hand harvest the herbs, dry them and then infuse them into organic olive oil. To infuse the oil I do this the old fashioned way. they are stored in glass jars in a cool dark place for up to 6 weeks and then I strain the herbs from the oils, for by then all the nutrients have been extracted and absorbed into the oil. I then take all that wonderful goodness to create various balms to nurture our skin.
