By Hummingbird Apothecary

Our range of artisanal goods are made in small batches using ingredients that are 100% natural or certified organic. We only use therapeutic grade essential oils that are cold pressed or steam distilled. 

Our products are made from all natural products, and do not contain any artificial preservatives, emulsifiers, fragrances, or other synthetic ingredients. We've added a 'use by' date so that you only use the products when they're fresh. Pure essential oils are very concentrated, and may affect sensitive skin. Do a patch test on your inner arm to check for adverse reactions or allergies, and consult a doctor if you have any symptoms. 

How do I keep and use your products, to maintain freshness?

1. Body Polish (approx. 3 months shelf life, please check 'use by' date on package)

Please keep this in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, preferably below room temperature. Use the attached wooden spoon to scoop out the body polish, do not let water into container as it can shorten the shelf life. 

2. Body Serum (approx. 3 months shelf life, please check 'use by' date on package)

Please keep this in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, preferably below room temperature. The fridge is a good place! Apply after your shower on to wet skin, so that the oils can spread smoothly and soak in faster.

3. Face mist (approx. 3 months shelf life, please check 'use by' date on package)

Please keep this in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, preferably below room temperature. The fridge is a good place! Since our face mist contains no emulsifiers, please shake before use.

 How do I use your products?

1. Body Polish

Scoop a small amount into your palms and rub on to wet skin. For softer, fragrant skin, let it sit on your skin for about 2 minutes, before washing off.

2. Body Serum

After using the body polish, apply the body serum to wet or damp skin so that it's easier to spread. The oils should be absorbed into your skin after about 4 - 5 minutes, so get dressed only have that happens to avoid staining your clothes. 

3. Face Mist

Prep your skin for the goodies to come - spritz this on before applying your face serum to keep your skin dewy and moisturised.

Freshen up with or without makeup - whatever the weather, our 100% pure and natural essential oils and ingredients will hydrate your skin and soften your makeup for a natural look.

Soothe and smooth dry patches - instead of layering on the moisturiser or concealer, mist on a light layer and gently dab on your concealer or BB cream.
