A multipurpose powerhouse that smells like the sun hitting a late winter forest.
Medicinal resins rendered into golden jojoba oil, this liquid resin can be used for a million woes.
Tree resin: a potent, time honored remedy offers antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and analgesic properties. It helps cell regeneration and lets the skin breathe even though it protects from excess moisture from the outside.
The bees know it too, considering it's what they use to create their hive's protective barrier glue known as propolis.
It's an ideal substitute for lanolin, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, almond oil, and beeswax ointments, which for some folks are problematic. But a word to the wise, please note that resins are inherently, um, resinous - meaning they are sticky!! This will melt into the skin after some time but don't expect a penetrating lotion consistency because it is definitely not.
RESIN DROPS is a concentrated combination of conifer resins and cottonwood (poplar / balm of Gilead) buds that I ethically forage from local forests and woodlands, a stunning pinon resin ethically wildcrafted by the extraordinary Darcey Blue French, along with sacred resins sourced from Mountain Rose herbs. All rendered into stable jojoba oil for a durable final product.

And of course: Your own recipes! ....................
Resins require time and patience to render. They must soften, steep, melt, marry. The tree barks and bits must loosen from the glue of the resin, and yet warmth must be controlled to maintain the valuable volatile oils. Harder aged resin tears like copal, myrrh, and frankincense require much more time before surrendering to the oil than the softer, fresher resins. Straining is slow as it is thick and precious, and must work its way through fine muslin to ensure a particle free result. These resin oils are tended carefully over time (several days) to coax the highest quality possible.
