Bespoke Formulations

be·spoke    /bəˈspōk/     Made for a specific customer or user 

There are three products to try and which range in price depending on the ingredients and the product(s) selected. Try a facial steam to open pores and clear sinuses with a custom selection of herbs and florals. If you like soaking in a tub, I can fashion an aromatic bath blend for you to sink into. A body oil is a nurturing way to care for your skin and your soul. Scent can transport us to the past, take us into an unknown future and hold us while we rest, it can deepen, heighten and ease our senses, encouraging balance physically/emotionally/energetically in our body.

Bespoke Formulations pair well together. The body oil and accompanying bath soak were formulated to treat symptoms for menstrual  pain. 

Bespoke Herbal Steam 

Bespoke Formulations may include an herbal steam, which can be used for sinuses, pores, even meditation. Your personalized herbal mixture will provide between 3 and 4 facial steams. I had a friend show me how to re-use my herbal steam in a footbath, and get an additional use from this product. I love this because it provides you with two self care opportunities (an herbal steam and additional foot bath) with one product. 

 

Inhalation of herbs and flowers can clear sinuses, and infuse mucus membranes (eyes, nose and mouth) with anti-microbial essential oils released by the plants as they are heated by the hot water. Plant blends can assist with clearing pores and reducing breakouts. They can support immune system before/during and after illness/allergies.

 

And, I find when I steam I bring my awareness into the present, notice the sensation of heat, the aroma of the plants, the relaxation in my shoulders as I inhale deeply, awareness on the breath, the movement of the herbs in the water...set your timer for 10 minutes and give your Self this moment. 

4 oz Bespoke Herbal Steams cost $45

My foundation for understanding plants and the healing they offer through their chemistry, came from practicing aromatherapy and skincare. I am selective and careful in my own practices of sustainability and do not take from endangered ecosystems. I support healthy skin but no longer promote plants for their use to achieve external beauty, their medicine is complex as well as precious.

 

The longer I've worked with plants the deeper my understanding for their right to have a healthful life experience and not be subjected to over harvesting, misunderstanding and human greed. We are in relationship with life forms whose time and experience on this planet far surpass our collective knowledge as humans. My service is to create a bespoke formulation for your (or a beloveds) use in Self care. 

Oil Infusions

Oil Infusions are created by soaking dried plant material, herbs and flowers in a botanical oil. 

Some infusions steep for up to 6 months. I allow the process to unfold naturally and am guided by the how the botanicals are absorbed into the various oil bases.

As the botanical oils absorb the physical plant chemistries to treat pain, muscle spasms, or calm and condition the skin,  I also expose the oil to music, a sunny window, prayer, a full moon, an eclipse and ​Solfeggio frequencies. For photos and information about the oils, you can find me on Instagram@ Kristina_Daniels_Essentials & five28_hz.

Oil Infusions and Botanical Formulations are used in the creation of aromatherapy blends, schedule a Cognitive Sensory session which includes a bespoke botanical formulation.

This Frankincense resin infused for a year in a quiet safe space, brought out for special occasions, like new moon and eclipse energy. It has been invaluable for medicine and blends ranging from skin repair, to application on tumors and abnormal skin growths. In addition to the physical attributes, Frankincense may offer an emotional sensation of grounding and assist with meditation and spiritual connection.

The infusion of creosote with lavender is a popular scent and reminds most of the desert after a rain.

This photo was taken on a walk in Tucson. Creosote give off a special aroma after it rains, which many say reminds them of smell of rain. 

The Frankincense infusion is an ingredient in the Everlasting serum.

Lavendula stoechas

Lavender, Lavendula stoechas
This french lavender was growing underneath the window of my old house. It is nice for relieving chest congestion.
A different species of Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) was used in the Creosote & Lavender Oil pictured above.

Lavender, Lavendula angustifolia
A primary ingredient in the Creosote & Lavender oil pictured above.
Notice the difference in the flowers between the two pictured species of lavender? The chemistries differ as well. This species is a good fit with relaxation, it has high amounts of linalool and eugenol, which in combination, offer a calming effect to the nervous system. 

Rosemary, Rosmarinus officinalis
I was inspired this spring to create a new infusion using Rosemary and Creosote. Much like the lavender and creosote, the blend offers anti-microbial powers as well as a smooth refreshing aroma with focus.

The process for making medicine matters.
How we treat plants and our ecosystem matters.
People committed to preserving Our environment go the extra mile to make sure the botanicals they are using are free from pesticides and other environmental pollutants. 
People who love plants will choose botanicals from ethically harvested areas, as well as ethically minded businesses including fair wages for all agricultural labor (plant tenders). 
Our plants and trees are under threat, let's be conscious of how we consume.
