The Practical Herbalist team’s interview with Christina Sanchez – cosmetologist, herbalist, and founder of Every Leaf Speaks prompted them to create more skin care products. Although this topic is not a speciality for any of the crew, they stepped out of their comfort zone to explore the world of beauty care. So much has changed in world of skin products over the last few decades. The range of natural and cruelty-free products is expanding as the general public refines their standards for what is attractive and healthy both personally and globally.
The delicate balance that herbs of the desert hold in their challenging environment offers a lesson in caution when using botanical treasures. We are wise to savor these medicine from desert plants like chaparral in moderation. A little goes a long way.
