The Jasmine Garden serves as a nutrient delivery system and penetration enhancer in our ritual, as well as the water element, ensuring the assimilation of both fat and water-soluble vitamins; amplifying the effectiveness of every treat that comes before or after it.

This ethereally light formula adds just a touch of moisture while bringing refreshing cleansing action with the unique combination of colloidal silver and witch hazel. This duo is particularly effective for soothing oily, acne, and irritation-prone skin, as well as eliminating dullness and stagnation that leads to chronic dehydration.

"Addictive. Be warned ... Once you use this, you won't want to ever use any other spray...ever. It's completely addictive, it adds such luminous clarity to my skin ... it smells like heaven had a chocolate jasmine pancake ... and it calms and soothes the spirit. I adore this spray. I never really put much emphasis on a spray - I mean seriously, it's mainly water. Not with May's Jasmine Garden it's not. Witch Hazel and Silver soothe and calm the skin, and the scent (have I mentioned that before?!) calm the soul. Its phenomenal. I can't be without it, ever."

—Pia

"Caught by surprise It's absolutely breathtaking! I never really valued tonic or floral waters and haven't ever spent much money on this step. Now, I must admit that it's not only good for the skin, but also good for the soul. This is by far THE BEST floral and hydrating water I have ever used in my routine. The smell, the feel on the skin..it's poetry in a bottle!"

—Oana

"I've always been pretty skeptical when it comes to face mists. I have dry skin, so people recommend them to me all the time, but I never really understood the point to spending so much money on a product that didn't seem essential.
I'm not going to lie to you and say this particular mist will change your routine - but it will better it. First off, there's the scent, which is a stunning bouquet of florals that just puts you in the peace headspace. Right off the bat the aroma won me over, and if May decided to make a perfume of it I would be the first in line.
But let's talk about the actual results. I personally don't find this mist to be overly hydrating. Spraying a bit of it does certainly help my skin absorb any serum I apply after, but for dry skin like mine I would never use this as just a lightweight moisturizer alone. The real star quality for this formula comes in its treatment of blemishes. The ingredients of colloidal silver and witch hazel are fantastic at reducing redness and providing antibacterial properties to your complexion, and I have definitely noticed a reduction in blemishes since adding this."

The Jasmine Garden

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 witch hazel and colloidal silver, providing cleansing and protective action throughout the day for care that goes beyond the morning and evening ritual. 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. 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 addition to your Problem Solver treatments, further increasing efficacy with the anti-inflammatory powers of colloidal silver and witch hazel. Try it with The Clean Dirt as well, and to make emulsions with The Blue Cocoon and The Youth Dew. I will even mist The Jasmine Garden lightly prior to masquing with The Honey Mud and sometimes during! It's a highly adaptable formula that really does bring out the best in every piece of my collection.

WHAT IS THE COLLOIDAL SILVER FOR IN THIS FORMULA? IS IT SAFE?

Silver has been demonstrated to accelerate healing of virtually every type of soft tissue damage and is one of the most studied, most effective, and most trusted ingredients on the market - natural or otherwise.

For many thousands of years, silver has been used as a healing agent by civilizations throughout the world. Its medical, preservative and restorative powers can be traced as far back as the ancient Greek and Roman Empires.

Used externally and in low concentration as we do in The Honey Mud and The Jasmine Garden, silver translates to serious protection against acne, inflammation, irritation, rashes and on and on - and also prevents us from having to turn to synthetic preservatives (many of which contain potentially carcinogenic parabens) that do not meld with my core philosophy on keeping these potions truly clean and healthy.

I love silver. It's both powerful and gentle and makes my formulas that much more effective and stable. If you would feel comfortable wearing silver jewelry against your highly absorbent skin, or eating off a silver-plated spoon (even today recommended and prescribed for infants with compromised immune systems), then we have confidence that you should feel very safe and well taken care of indulging in thoughtful facial care treats incorporating this unique ingredient.

My dear friends,

Over the years, you’ve all gotten to know me for my obsession with quality and service, and my dedication to our beautiful, life-filled, truly natural ingredients. It is an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with your care and I do not take this responsibility lightly.

Today, I’m writing to let you know we are temporarily ceasing sale of The Honey Mud.

Recently, we've found ourselves confronted very directly with the challenging side of what it means to be an uncompromisingly plant-based, natural brand. Working with the world’s freshest, direct-sourced, food-grade ingredients in their least processed and most potent state is our foundation and with this comes both the benefit of these live enzymes and rich nutrient activity, as well as the potential for this "activity" to result in rare instances of bloom or mild fermentation - the same as that can happen in any fresh, organic food. We have now observed this occurrence within certain batches of The Honey Mud in our lab, which brings us to this conversation.

We are investigating a theory that previously undetected, dormant microbes within clay can be brought to life when fed with the nourishment of our raw honey. We are implementing additional pre-screens on “inert” individual ingredients like clay to further expand our visibility into the invisible. Further, I am exploring subtle variations on this unique formula, dreaming of ways to make it not only more stable, but even more extraordinary and beautiful for the skin.

I realize that for many of you, The Honey Mud is a part of your treasured daily ritual, as it is for me. It breaks my heart to not be able to share this for some undefined period of time and I know some will be upset as there is no opportunity to stock up. As much as I want you to have this special treat in your world, I want more to be always worthy of your trust.

Stability, the "nature of nature", and what happens when something goes wrong is an important conversation that is often skipped over, but is vital to this community's understanding around natural formulation and the ongoing trials that come with it. My commitment to always embrace an open conversation with you has never been stronger and this moment will no doubt provide a catalyst for even greater innovation within our in-house production team and the work we do. The Honey Mud will be back and will be more glorious than ever before! :)

I'll be in touch as we progress and have news on an updated version of The Honey Mud's availability, but know that my responsibility and priority is to proceed with my research, reformulation, and testing with thoughtfulness and thoroughness, and not necessarily speed.

I welcome any questions. It is always important to me to be an open book, and no subject is dearer to my heart than that of our precious fresh ingredients and the dedicated loving care of YOU.

With love always,
