Every now and then I find out about an amazing product that is either in short supply or small run. I can't use these to go 'live' as there wouldn't be enough to go around or have as reliable stock. But that shouldn't be a reason not to have them!
If it's really small supply, then I keep them to myself to use on my clients but if I can get a little more, then I get to share.
Limited Edition is the part of the JS website that will hold these products, in limited supply and when they are gone, they are gone. I will send a 'round robin' e mail to everyone on the members list and they will be sold on a first come, first served. The packaging is basic but the contents will absolutely, definitely be A M A Z I N G.....
I have been able to
get hold of some amazing Wildcrafted Lavender Hydrolat. Harvested in August 2013, it has literally just come off the press.
It smells to me of antique lavender mixed with dark, sticky honey and burnished Sun, but it will probably evoke something different for everyone…..
I say 'been able to get hold of' as this comes from a very small artisan provider in Provence and her harvest is very limited and always totally allocated to customers that have been buying from her for a long, long time.
It took some doing, I worked through a person, who knew a person, who knew someone that knew when to call her – when she wasn't in the field at midnight, checking the plants – to ask her in the nicest possible way that if she were to
have ANY stock left…could I please take it…..
And it paid off, I have just taken delivery of 25 litres – which is just enough for 125 x 200ml bottles.
It is truly amazing and I sincerely hope this means I am now on 'The LIST' for next year……fingers crossed.
In the meantime, I have 125 bottles of the most stunning hydrolat I have experienced in my lifetime. It's hard to explain what it does, but you can use it to simply 'apply' to your skin and let it sink in and nourish, soften, refresh, cool, hydrate or moisturise.
Add it to your treatments, or keep it for yourself (I would!)
It can be used as a light cleansing wipe when drizzled (carefully) onto a cotton pad to remove light make up or finish a deeper cleanse (with JS Nourishing Cleanser of course) Wipe it 'on' before applying your normal facial oil or moisturiser as an
extra layer of hydration. It can be dropped onto cotton wool pads and placed over closed, tired eyes to refresh and reduce puffiness, it can be used for guys pre or post shave as a calming, soothing wipe. It can be used as a skin spritz – but I would NEVER spritz it as you waste so much, just 'wipe on' with cotton pads to get the same effect. Use it for post sun exposure to calm skin or in instances of skin irritation or redness.
Just use it, but don't waste it.
It's £32 INGREDIENTS Organic, Eco Cert, 100% Wildcrafted Lavender hydrolat.
Hydrolats form during the extraction of essential oil from the plant or flower. They hold high levels of skin nutrients and
can be used in many ways, they actually drink it in China…..
