Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
. . .
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
. . .
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand’rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
. . .
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Shakespeare, Sonnet 18
Lavender is steeped in Witch Hazel extract for a full moon cycle and then blended with Aloe Vera gel to create this gentle & soothing facial toner.
Lavender comes from the Latin word lavare meaning “to wash”. Lavender’s soothing and calming effects are suitable for all skin types, but most effective on oily skin. Lavender soothes acne, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis and is believed to stimulate cellular growth and regeneration in the skin by rejuvenating the dermis & epidermis.
Aloe Vera Gel
Known as the ‘plant of immortality’ in ancient Egypt, Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to provide relief to many skin conditions. Aloe Vera softens skin without clogging pores, retains moisture, improves skin hydration, enhances elasticity, balances pH, and reduces inflammation & redness. Aloe Vera is suitable for all skin types, including acne prone skin.
