The Evolution of E’lixir [part 1]…

During this past, frigid winter, the only moisture in the air was frozen…my face was suffering from the dryness of artificial heating and me trying different products was counter productive…maybe I’m stressed?…or is it my diet?…it’s no telling….

I’m sitting in class and feeling a way about being there…thinking it’s got to be more to this life, and all the possibilities of what is ‘more’…and to add sugar to sh-t, I have this random break out on my face…speaking of random…the patches of stiff hairs, I had been growing, on my chin causes irritation when they show up…scarring from me picking and plucking…I decided to make a formula for my skin…something all natural and organic to complement the regimen I had already established for my hair….

My friend made an oil blend, that she sold me on to treat my dry scalp…what she gave me had mint in it…and from what I remember, pumpkin seed…it came in a dropper…perfect to target dry patches…it was soothing, but didn’t quite stop the dandruff…and very concentrated…I had some of this blend left over…. Few weeks prior, I began using it again…the dry scalp was another issue I was having…this oil was at least a year old, so I started researching mint…more so for the expiration date…it was good still, but I didn’t think I kept it stored properly…then I started looking more into its’ health benefits, and saw that mint was good for acne…desperate to treat this break-out, I started putting it, on the break out spots, on my face…but not knowing the concentration of the blend…I thought not to keep doing that…. That evening, while in class contemplating my life, I decided that I was going to make my own face product….

I texted my friend, and asked about the blend she made…just to verify the pumpkin seed [I didn’t want to tell her that I had tried it on my face]….

Her reply threw me…she said not good for the face…I’d read so much of the opposite…. I decided that I would still go for it…at first I was gonna mix up a cream, but figured it would be way too heavy for my face…I started researching some more…the pumpkin seed is good for scalp and hair growth, but not what I was looking for my face…I needed a good carrier oil…. I wanted something that would tone and brighten my skin, eliminate the blemishes, counter break outs…something like a face toner…but it needed to also hydrate…this formula had to be very light and all natural too….

More research on facial toners…how to make my own…then I thought, what if I made a toner that also moisturized…so that’s what I did!…. About a month later, I had come up with the perfect formula…. A special blend of organic oils, that had similar effects on the skin, to maximize the results…infused it in a water based natural skin toner….
