Featured as a key ingredient in our Behave hair pomade, the essential oil of Bay Laurel is both antiseptic and antibiotic. Bay Laurel can protect wounds from infection, and inhibit the growth of bacteria. The astringent properties are able to prevent hair loss by strengthening the bond between the hair’s root and our scalp. While promoting a discharge of toxins from the body and strengthening your immune system, the spicy and herbaceous scent of bay laurel will promote general wellness. The aroma of Bay Laurel will work to address anxiety, stress, and depression, by calming nervous tendencies.
BEHAVE has many uses as do most of our other products. Because we only use food grade organic ingredients, the aim is to nourish the skin. The organic beeswax provides a hydrating and softening barrier to the skin and hair. We use BEHAVE as a skin conditioner, especially in the dry winter months. It is great on chapped hands and we use it liberally on our elbows and feet.
The skin is our largest organ and is certainly reflective of the body’s overall vitality. The body will reflect its internal health in the external organ (skin). Good nutrition and hydration are essential to maintaining radiant and healthy skin tissue.
If you have younger skin, taking care of your skin now and slowing the aging process will serve you later. As we age the body’s ability to renew skin cells becomes less efficient. The amount of natural moisture is also reduced. As the skin ages, collagen production also diminishes, contributing to thinner skin with less flexibility.
