Elanor Sun-star Signature Oil Blend for July


July's blend is bright and sunny as a Hobbit's garden!



Tolkien's Elanor is a small star-shaped yellow flower, whose name means 'sun-star' in Sindarin. It grew abundantly on the Cerin Amroth mound in Lothlórien together with niphredil, and also in Tol Eressëa. On Frodo Baggins's suggestion, Samwise Gamgee named his daughter, Elanor the Fair, after this flower.

Base Oil: Safflower Oil
Secondary Oils: Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil
Essential Oils: Lemon, Oakmoss, Lavender, Neroli, Lemongrass
Aroma: Sunny citrus with a breath of floral and green. 

Application: 1-2 drops of oil in the hands and massage into damp hair or into the scalp.

You can get the 4 ounce version here, or a mister here!
 

Detailed Ingredients:

• Safflower Oil- also known as Carthamus tinctorius, functions as an emollient when applied topically, helping to keep skin and hair hydrated and moisturized. Safflower oil is a source naturally high in the vitamin E antioxidant, which helps reduce surface roughness.

• Coconut oil fractionated- Coconut oil is excellent as a skin moisturizer and softener. A study shows that extra virgin coconut oil is effective and safe when used as a moisturizer, with absence of adverse reactions. A study found that coconut oil helped prevent protein loss from the wet combing of hair when used for fourteen hours as a conditioner before washing the hair.

• Sunflower Oil Organic Cold–Pressed Unrefined– An oil wealthy in Oleic acids with high amounts of Vitamins A, D, and E, also has beneficial amounts of lecithin, and unsaturated fatty acids. Deeply nourishing and conditioning for the skin and hair it is a natural emollient (meaning it corrects scaling and dryness), by helping upraised skin and hair cells lay flat, helping to increase shine and keep in moisture. Cold-pressed oil, also called cold-drawn, or virgin, oil, is purer than oil expressed with the aid of heat and retains more of its natural benefits.

• Lemon Essential Oil- This refreshing oil is an antifungal and antibacterial. It also promotes circulation of the scalp. 

• Oakmoss Essential Oil- Earthy-rich notes of moss, with slight undertones of wood and pine with excellent tenacity. Reminiscent of a walk in an old forest. Oakmoss is both an antiseptic and a demulcent meaning that it both fights microbes while soothing irritated tissues. It is excellent at helping maintain the moisture and oil balance of skin, making it fantastic for scalps. 

• Lavender Essential Oil– Enhances hair growth by stimulating the scalp. The name “lavender” is derived from the Latin lavare, meaning, “to wash” and was known as one of the seven polyvalents (effective against many toxins). Greeks and Romans perfumed their bathwater with lavender, burned lavender incense to appease their wrathful gods, and believed the scent of lavender to be soothing to untamed lions and tigers.

• Neroli Essential Oil- With its light, citrusy scent, neroli has antibacterial properties that helps keep scalps healthy. Cytophylactic, it promotes the generation of new cells and stimulates the health of those already present.

• Lemongrass Essential Oil- A heavy, lemony, green scent, this oil is widely used as an addition to bug repellents, and for its lemony aroma. Citral is known for its antimicrobial effects, and can help kill or suppress the growth of bacteria and fungi. It's said that lemongrass oil's quality is generally determined by its citral content. For those that suffer from hair loss, oily hair, and other scalp conditions, lemongrass oil may be beneficial, as it can help strengthen hair follicles.

Dragon's Blood Signature Oil back by popular demand!



So many people love this and are using it in various things that we bought back our dragonsblood infused coconut oil to stay!  You can find the listing here.

Dragon’s blood is a resin produced by the rattan palm tree, Daemonorops draco. Dragon’s blood resin is often burned as incense, and its deep red pigment is used as a varnish and a dye. The resin is still used where it is powdered down and used as an ink to write spells.

Dragon's Blood: A light oil, perfect for the length of your hair on cold, dry nights. The dragonsblood resin was ground, sifted, and diffused into warmed oils, allowing the deep, auric smell to permeate the oil. Despite the red color of the resin, Dragon's Blood will not stain your hair, and is actually a pale pink in color, not deep red.

Base Oil: Fractionated Coconut Oil
Also: Dragon's Blood Resin

Aroma: Incense. 

Application: 1-2 drops of oil in the hands and massage into damp hair. 

Detailed Ingredients:

• Coconut oil fractionated- Coconut oil is excellent as a skin moisturizer and softener. A study shows that extra virgin coconut oil is effective and safe when used as a moisturizer, with absence of adverse reactions. A study found that coconut oil helped prevent protein loss from the wet combing of hair when used for fourteen hours as a conditioner before washing the hair.

• Dragonsblood Resin- Dragon’s blood is a resin produced by the rattan palm tree, Daemonorops draco. It is native to Southeast Asia, appearing in tropical and subtropical climates and occurring on the Malay Archipelago, specifically cultivated in Sumatra. There are in fact many red resins colloquially known as dragon’s blood, many of which possess different properties and come from entirely different plants. The resin of Daemonorops draco is what was used in this blend.

Jasmine green tea is simply green tea that has been flavored with jasmine flowers. The benefits of green tea are still being studied, but there is no doubt about the high levels of antioxidants it contains. Jasmine is prized for its sweet fragrance and the delicate flavor of its white blossoms, which makes drinking green tea with jasmine as pleasant as it is healthy. This oil is like a cuppa for your hair, soothing and rejuvenating.

Pick up the half ounce or four ounce bottles!

Base Oil: Pumpkin Seed Oil
Secondary Oils: Avocado Oil, Hemp Seed Oil
Essential Oils: Jasmine Absolute, Vanilla Burbon C02 Extract, Sage Essential Oil, Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil, Elemi Essential Oil
Aroma: Jasmine green tea swirled with vanilla.

Application: 1-2 drops of oil in the hands and massage into damp hair or into the scalp. 

Detailed Ingredients:

Pumpkin Seed Oil- Pumpkin seeds contain fatty oils with linoleic acid and oleic acid, both known to prevent cancer-causing cell production. They are also an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C. In addition, the seeds contain beneficial nutrients like zinc, magnesium, calcium and iron. Perhaps most important to those suffering from hair loss, the seeds contain cucurbitin, a unique amino that may be responsible for pumpkin seeds' effects on hair growth. There is conjecture that when consumed internally pumpkin seed oil it is a DHT blocker and can aid in treating baldness or hair loss, though no clinical study has been done. 

Avocado Oil- This deep golden oil is an edible oil pressed from the fruit of the Persea americana (avocado). It is used for lubrication and in cosmetics where it is valued for its regenerative and moisturizing properties. Rich in nutrients, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, this nutritional oil is excellent for enhancing hair health. It supplies vitamins A, B, D, and E to nourish both hair follicles and the scalp. Vitamin E also acts as a protective antioxidant. It has natural humectant properties, adding and locking in moisture. The monounsaturated fatty acids will give hair a glossy shine and silky texture. The amino acids will promote the growth of new hair cells.

Hemp seed Oil- Hemp seed oil is made up of 80% essential fatty acid, the highest amount of any other plant. Hemp seed oil prevents moisture loss on a physiological level; it does just not merely "coat" the skin or hair as do other oils. Hemp so closely matches our own skins lipids it is able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surface between. Not only does Hemp seed oil contribute greatly to the barrier function and appearance it also has other skin benefits such as offering relief to acne, minor abrasions, psoriasis and eczema. Hemp is also the only plant oil containing Vitamin D, which is necessary for Calcium absorption, especially useful to vegans. Using Hemp seed oil is a great way to achieve soft, smooth and hydrated skin.

Jasmine Absolute- This oil helps to bust stress- which can drain nutrients from the body. Using jasmine oil along with coconut oil has Shown to encourage hair growth. Along with adding to the volume and length, it gives dry hair a radiant lustre.

Vanilla Burbon CO2 Extract- Vanilla is not produced as pure essential oil. It is well advised to question the authenticity of Vanilla labeled pure essential oil. This soothing scent is perfect for relaxing and meditation. 

Sage Essential Oil– A scalp soother and astringent, the herb is of ancient repute, valued as a culinary and medicinal plant – called herba sacra, ‘sacred herb’, by the Romans

Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil- A warm and spicy aroma, with a hint of nutmeg, this is a scalp-soothing oil. It can also help with headaches and in aiding relaxation.

Elemi Essential Oil- Created from the resin of Canarium luzonicum, Elemi is often used as a natural fragrence for beauty products, especially those that focus on rejuvenating the skin. It smells bright and crisp citrus with soft floral, slightly balsamic, spicy and herbaceous

Sarenrae Blonde/Colorless Herbal Hair Color and Conditioner




No, not a new product, just a retitle!  Formerly known as Devas, our Golden Blonde / Colorless (on dark hair) blend is now known as Sarenrae.

Why the change? Back in the day I had this idea that all the hair colors would be named after faeries, and all the powders would be things that could be purchased in a fae market. That worked right up until Fire Genasi came along (Dungeons & Dragons entity with a fire elemental as a parent), and then was followed up by Kitsune (Japanese fox-spirit), Enyo (Greek goddess of war), and Eilistraee (a Drow goddess in Dungeons & Dragons).

Also? Devas just never resonated with me. It sounded kind of like diva, and most divas don't seem into the whole head-full-of-mud thing.



Lastly, I'm a long-time roleplayer, and after creating the Raven Queen's Chosen Oil I wanted to do another Critical Role homage. Sarenrae is the Pathfinder Goddess of Healing and Redemption who teaches temperance and patience in all things. This herbal blend is perfect for putting damaged hair on the mend, and Sarenrae fit thematically.

In Critical Role, before Pike Trickfoot, a Cleric of Sarenrae, was killed, her hair black with a purple streak. After her first death and resurrection her hair turned white. Her player, Ashley Johnson, has blonde hair, too, so it all seemed to fit rather nicely.




This herbal hair conditioner hearkens to the warmth of Sarenrae, imparting warm golden tones to lighter colored hair, and giving amazing natural conditioning properties to darker colored hair. Sarenrae Blonde/Colorless Herbal Hair Color and Conditioner is made entirely from powdered herbs.

Just like before, you can get a 10g sample and a 100g full-sized packet.
