Unburden Serum: Deep Tranquility
The Unburden Serum: Deep Tranquility is a concentrated moisturizer, serum, and elemental defense oil in one. Its name comes from its ability to support all skin functions by lifting the burden of inflammation, the root cause of all secondary skin symptoms; including but not limited to cystic acne, rosacea, redness, broken capillaries, excessive dryness, loss of elasticity, and even hyperpigmentation. It contains numerous plants which have a lymph affinity, encouraging ease, flow, and release of stagnation that shows up in qi, lymph, fascia, and connective tissue. The Unburden Serum encourages and supports all cellular functioning to continue with ease and grace, transforming skin to a state of tranquility.
Formula Update: We know what you’re thinking. Why would we change the formula of our cult favorite best-selling product?! Well, we promise that we didn’t change too much. In fact, many of you who already use the Anti-Inflammatory Serum will most likely not notice a change in scent or use. The ingredient list didn’t change too much at all, with the exception of the removal of Neroli and Blue Tansy, and the addition of Chia Seed and Blue Chamomile. We have had so much positive feedback from this popular Serum, but at the same time we simply knew we could make it just slightly better, so we did. We altered some of the ratios of lipid oils to increase some of our anti-inflammatory favorites like Evening Primrose, Pomegranate, and Tamanu – and we added Chia Seed. The increase of these more ‘cushiony’ oils soften and slow the delivery of some of the other more potent botanicals such as Baical Skullcap, Licorice Root, and Helichrysum, which makes this serum now easier for even the most reactive skin types to gently take in. While this product already had the lowest percentage of essential oils of any of our products, we still lowered it and edited it just a bit, to be even more widely well-received by those who are highly reactive. Remember that when we use essential oils as a brand, they are chosen for their specific medicinal properties, not to scent our products. And the essential oils in our Unburden Serum are ones with great ability to repair, de-stagnate, and calm the mind and skin.
Evening Primrose – Freshly pressed and produced exclusively for our line, this California-made oil reduces inflammation with its vast essential fatty acid profile, while it aids in reducing the appearance of fine lines and scarring.
German Chamomile – This azulene-rich plant is a cooling relief to red or irritated skin of any kind. It is a potent anti-inflammatory that provides soothing gentle cell regeneration. This plant often gets confused with Blue Tansy, sometimes referred to as Moroccan Chamomile, but German Chamomile is actually much gentler and soothing to the skin and poses less opportunity for reactivity.
Baical Skullcap – As lovers of herbal medicine, this is by far the most potent anti-inflammatory that we have found. It has a strong antihistamine-like effect and supports the skin to work through reactivity with ease. This vibrant yellow root is also specific to allergic reactions and supports skin that often flares up in response to food and environments.
Helichrysum – Freshly distilled in the Pacific Northwest, this little yellow flower is as gentle as it is potent. It strengthens tissues and supports cellular activity; reduces the appearance of scars and broken capillaries. This plant is a true healer, and a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Lemon Balm – This nutrient-rich green leaf, also known as Melissa, is high in delicate antioxidants that work swiftly to reduce free radical damage. It is specific to mending and soothing inflamed and problematic skin, and it also has a lymph and immune system affinity that has a regulatory effect. This plant speaks directly to the name of this Serum, Unburden, because its Rosmarinic Acid content can have a reduction and positive effect in lymphedema.
