I like to freshen up my skin on a Friday Night before the weekend with a mask followed by a facial serum. I use two white facial towels. One for the mask to remove it and one to wash before the moisturizing serum. First I make a french press of Hibiscus Tea. Sip Sip before my beauty ritual, saving some for a toner later on. This tea contains zinc and vit c that is good for our skin. Also helps relieve anxiety and depression, anti inflammatory and antioxidant can effectively treat acne, scars, sunburns, eczema and skin allergies. There are beneficial effects on oxidative stress and helps skin cells. Sip Sip, slowly. Refrigerate any tea you do not use for morning beverage.
Tonight I worked with a charcoal mask. I dipped my wet finger into the charcoal mask and applied it carefully all over my face, carefully avoiding my eyes. I let it sit gently before i removed, a few minutes. I used the first towel to remove by wetting towel with cold water, and gently removing.
Next I used my organic unscented facial wash to thoroughly wash my whole face, and then towel off the soap. Then I tone with some of the hibiscus tea on a corner of the tea towel, before I start to moisturize. I use about 4 pumps of my Angel Glow Serum and drench my face, neck, decollatege with serum, and let it sink in. I rest while it works itself into my skin.
Simple. Regenerative. Works quickly to feel so good. Charcoal helps to absorb bacteria, dirt, and other micro-particles on the surface of the skin. It can also be used topically for a spider bite to help eliminate the poison beneath the skin. (do not use on broken skin). Angel Glow Serum is a Facial Beauty Product that is so good for anti aging, and smooth, deeply penetrating moisture that lasts.
I hope that you will enjoy this regime soon.
Our parfums can be utilized in a beautiful meditation for the planet, as well as our inner being. Spray above your crown chakra (above your head) and allow the scent to rain down around you. While this happens, imagine the above image, so you are inhaling the scent down through your core temple and then recirculating the quantum energies around and back up and in again. Enjoy.
I don't always have Lime + Frankincense on my shop shelves. It's great in winter as a transitional serum between Imbolc and Spring Equinox.
This is a completely rejuvenating anti-aging Skin Care Serum that can be utilized in a protocol for a daily usage on face, chin, neck and decolletage to heal, build collagen, support healthy cellular function, increase blood flow and circulation, reduce inflammation, reduce skin discolouration and redness, promote feelings of wellness and relaxation, remove dead cells.
Promotes healing from skin rashes, acne, pimples, and helps overall skin texture. It fights skin damage due to sun, dust and pollution. Antioxidant and astringent properties can help reduce wrinkles as well as diminish dark spots, skin tan and open pores. Can be used as a lip balm to heal cracked lips from winter weather, wind or dehydration.
USAGE SUGGESTION: I like to wash my face morning and night with a splash of cold water followed by some serum. When I shower I wash my face with some organic castille liquid soap unscented. I love the serum in roll on bottle in purse but i keep the larger size on my dresser or in shower, and apply on my face to seal in moisture before I tap dry with a face towel.
Hope you love it. I follow with my usual application of Angel Glow Serum on face, chin, neck and decolletage. I like Anti Stress Serum on the rest of body with Prana Serum on legs, feet, toes. :)

I created this parfum as a delicious tribute to the spice roads of old and new where our cultural heritage of wild botanicals comes together to create a new multi cultural foundation of rich elements in nature's intelligence.
It must be experienced to fully appreciate.
In the one year it has been developed it has deepened, mellowed, expanded. One of my most favourites now. Come try some. Spice Road. May we feel the heart unifying efforts of floral love.
The inspiration for creating this scent came from summer 2019 driving on highway one between Davenport and Pescadero. There is an abundance of freshly growing fennel all along the way. The brisk breeze along the area of Pigeon Point is pronounced. I would drive with the windows open to inhale the beauty of the fennel. I began designing a Summer Essence Capture of this fennel.
The top notes revolve all around this fennel. They include a mossy fougere chyphre that brings us deeper into the heart of the scent and deeper still into the base/dry down of the scent.
An ecology of clearing, inviting wisdom in each inhalation forms a simplicity meditation inducing clarity, and a way to move on from the past. It rings gently like a bell pulling us in to our center heart beingness towards our earthy roots where we live and build new foundations.
Fennel is for Healing + Purification
Praise for a Job Well done
Fennel is traded between new lovers and long married couples
Is best known as a symbol for strong unhindered bonds of love.
Gazos Creek Parfum: Tribute to Love and Lovers everywhere: The Eternal Summer.
As a quiet meditation today on imbolc, our spring 2 seasonal launch; inhale some of this parfum and exhale all the elements you have outgrown which no longer serves your higher good.
This Holiday marks the beginning of spring. It is six weeks mark between the winter solstice and spring equinox. It is the birthing season for goats, cows and sheep. Mating season for wild turkeys and more birds. Watched some hawks mating dance today.
In the gardens we see it is a seedling season, lots of plants are already in and beginning. We're really excited about having our seasonal aphrodisiacs for scent journey this weekend.
Tune UP. Come in to smell all our latest soliflore parfums, landscape parfums and reserve parfums.
I am looking forward to growing these beauties again this year. Last year we had so many pretty very tall 7 to 8 foot sunflowers. We have some seeds for you, so come to the shop as the time is now to plan out your spaces for green thumb season. xo
In my daily drives along the ocean between my home above Big Basin/Waddell Creek Beach and my Perfume Studio in Davenport, sweeping up to Pescadero on highway one, and back down to Santa Cruz on many days here is what I am seeing in bloom now.
