The Jasmine Garden | FAQ
DO I NEED A MIST IN MY RITUAL? DOES IT SERVE AN ACTUAL PURPOSE?
I'm a longtime skeptic of most mists/toners on the market as they are often simply fragranced and preserved water. The Jasmine Garden is different, and 100% has a function. The base of this unique formula is comprised of a powerfully effective combination of colloidal silver, rosewater, and two varieties of precious jasmine, providing cooling, soothing, and protective action throughout the day for care that goes beyond your morning and evening rituals.
The Jasmine Garden is particularly wonderful to bring calm and relief to acne and irritation-prone skin, as well as to work as a penetration enhancer for The Youth Dew and The Blue Cocoon, allowing for the assimilation of both fat and water-soluble nutrients.
The Jasmine Garden adds just a touch of light moisture while infusing skin with antioxidant protection, restoring elasticity, and freeing delicate complexions of redness and inflammation.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THE JASMINE GARDEN FOR USE AFTER OILS?
Water works to facilitate the absorption of plant oils as well as to enable the assimilation of water-soluble vitamins, so we always like to pair The Jasmine Garden closely with our hydration step.
We recommend that you massage both The Blue Cocoon and The Youth Dew into SOAKING WET skin (skipping your towel entirely and going directly from rinsing to oils), immediately after cleansing and while skin is still soft, warm and receptive. Then follow with a generous mist of The Jasmine Garden to even further enhance penetration, while continuing massage. This sandwiching effect - water/oil/water - makes a world of difference, especially if your skin barrier is disrupted and you have difficulty absorbing oils.
You can, of course, use The Jasmine Garden before oils as well - this is nice when for whatever reason you are unable to go straight from cleansing to oils, and so do not already have a wet face. It's also fine to mist The Jasmine Garden right on top of the water if you want even more slip for your massage. Play, and discover what works best for your individual needs.
CAN I REFRIGERATE THE JASMINE GARDEN?
Yes! While this formula is shelf stable at room temperature for 12 months after opening, I absolutely adore it chilled. A cool bottle of The Jasmine Garden is a must for stressed skin prone to redness and flushing and is the perfect finish to your ritual.
I HAVE ACNE-PRONE SKIN. WILL THIS BREAK ME OUT?
The Jasmine Garden is ideal for skin prone to inflammation of all kinds, including acne. I love to keep a bottle with me at all times! When I feel a new pimple coming to the surface, a quick mist stops me from picking or itching my face, and often completely stops the progression of the breakout in its tracks!
I'VE BEEN USING THE JASMINE GARDEN TO ACTIVATE THE PROBLEM SOLVER, IS THIS OKAY? HOW ELSE CAN I USE IT?
Absolutely! The Jasmine Garden is the perfect activator for your Problem Solver treatments (and The Clean Dirt, too!), further increasing efficacy with the anti-inflammatory, soothing powers of colloidal silver. Play with creating emulsions with The Jasmine Garden and The Blue Cocoon, and The Youth Dew, as well.
I love to mist The Jasmine Garden lightly over my skin prior to masquing with The Honey Mud and even during! This feels especially wonderful if skin is feeling flushed or heated, so pull it out when using any active treatment that brings on a tingle. The Jasmine Garden is a highly adaptable formula that really does bring out the best in every piece of our collection.
WHAT IS THE COLLOIDAL SILVER FOR IN THIS FORMULA? IS IT SAFE?
Silver has become one of my very favorite ingredients for the skin due to its ability to accelerate the healing of virtually every type of soft tissue damage.
For many thousands of years, silver has been used as a healing agent by civilizations throughout the world. Its medical and restorative powers can be traced as far back as the ancient Greek and Roman Empires.
Used topically as we do in The Honey Mud and The Jasmine Garden, silver translates to serious protection against acne, inflammation, irritation, rashes, and a plethora of skin challenges.
