A customer remarked on my Facebook page why Taos? I have spent many years wild gathering the botanicals in the high desert mountains of Taos NM. I have been inspired and in awe of its beauty and became the seed for my business. I wanted to bottle up the scent of the fresh sage and flora of the mesa after a summer rain.
Walking along the acequias, the water flowing fresh from the mountains that fed into age old citrus orchards and alfalfa fields that spanned the course of time well over 500 years. I discovered the native plants that grew together were a remedy for dry skin that resulted from the high dry climates. The rosehip seed, primrose seed, burdock seed, sage, licorice root, and burdock seed and roots and sunflowers were high in Vitamin C and antioxidants that nourish and repair skin and hair.
Nature has its intelligence. It is often the case that there is a remedy for every ailment within 10 feet. The botanicals offer minerals and vitamins that combat the dry elements. Particularly the sun. High in Vitamin C, the plants heal and protect from sun damage and harmful UA rays. I couldn’t come up with a better proprietary blend than from the offering of botanicals along the riparian. I believe that plants that grow in a matrix offer more healing power and life force.
Taos has a unique climate of sage desert mesas and mountain ranges that provide a floracopeia of the highest quality botanical treasures. I did in fact bottle the essence of Taos and its magic and healing properties. I have come to love Taos, it will always be my home.
