Fall Favorites

November 13, 2017

fall pumpkins by emily blincoe

It’s finally fall — take your scarves out of storage, dust off your boots, and order that PSL (that’s short for Pumpkin Spice Latte, naturally). While we won’t miss the excessive July dewiness (read: sweat), we’ll be longing for those summer Fridays soon enough. Luckily, there’s three months of autumnal activities ahead and a bunch of milk + honey products to try. Here are our fresh picks for the season:

milk + honey lip polish 40

1. Lip Polish Nº 40

Falling temps are good for the spirit but flaky on the lips. You’re out-and-about without any lip products to speak of, and you lick your lips for a fleeting moment of relief. Of course, this only leads to more drying and cracking. Lip Polish is here to cure. Grains of sugar gently exfoliate while organic oils reintroduce moisture. The vanilla and cardamom combo is ideal for autumn, equal parts sweet and warm.

milk + honey lip butter 40

2. Lip Butter Nº 40

For a fall one-two punch, follow up your Lip Polish Nº 40 with Lip Butter Nº 40. Coconut oil and vitamin E oil are super hydrating and now super portable. Wear alone or layer under your signature fall lip for easier application and a truer hue.

milk + honey hand purifier

3. Hand Purifier Nº 8

Between school, work, and life, we come into contact with a lot of germs. Hand Purifier Nº 8 is your quick, easy fix for clean hands — sans soap, water, and that unpleasant alcohol smell.

4. Bath & Body Oil Nº 14

Some days are so dry that no lotions or creams can save you. Enter: Bath & Body Oil. Add a few drops to your bath and apply after bathing to seal in moisture and soften skin. The lavender scent soothes year-round, but it’s especially calming as we collectively shake off our summer lethargy and dive into frenetic fall.

milk + honey everything oil

5. Everything Oil

The “everything” product for everyone. Vitamin E oil hydrates and rosehip oil reduces hyperpigmentation. Apply it on your cuticles for an added layer of protection, run it through the ends of your hair to guard against split ends, or use it smooth flyaways. Our preferred way to use at the moment? Dab a small amount on your fingers and blend with your favorite highlighting product for an lit-from-within glow.

Not Your Typical Orange

November 13, 2017

Thanks to its high content of vitamins and antioxidants, blood orange is a go-to ingredient in skincare products.

Benefits of Blood Orange

Blood orange contains a large amount of vitamin C, folic acids, and anthocyanins. Vitamin C protects your skin and helps to re-energize collagen production. Folic acid helps protect your skin against sun damage and reduces signs of aging. Anthocyanins AKA “super antioxidants” are effective at fighting against free radicals and slow down collagen breakdown.

Blood Orange has natural anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibacterial properties, all of which make it effective at eliminating germs and bacteria. It’s also great at stimulating blood circulation.

Squeaky Clean Hands

November 13, 2017

Dirty hands are no match for milk + honey Hand Soap No. 35. This gentle hand soap not only cleanses your hands effectively but also leaves them feeling soft and hydrated.

What Makes milk + honey Hand Soap No. 35 Different?

Many liquid hand soaps on the market contain sulfates, parabens, and harsh detergents. These ingredients can strip the oils from your skin, leaving it cracked and dry. milk + honey Hand Soap cleanses and moisturizes your skin with plant-based ingredients and a citrusy blend of organic blood orange, ginger, and lemongrass essential oils. Blood orange and lemongrass have natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties that keep your hands clean. Ginger oil has natural stimulating properties that soothe inflammation and leave your hands healthy and moisturized.

milk + honey Hand Soap No. 35 is gentle enough for the whole family to use — even those with sensitive skin.

Sunflower Seed Oil

November 13, 2017

Sunflower seed oil is a core component of many milk + honey bath and body care products. Today, we’re shining a brighter light on what makes sunflower seed oil an essential ingredient.

What Is Sunflower Seed Oil?

Compressed from sunflower seeds, it’s a fast-absorbing and moisturizing oil that’s rich in linoleic acid, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid, and oleic acid, an Omega-9 fatty acid. Sunflower seed oil is used as an emollient and helps to keep skin soft, balanced, and healthy.

Benefits of Sunflower Seed Oil

Given the high content of fatty acids, sunflower seed oil is packed with natural antioxidants and vitamin E, which maintain the skin’s health and minimize a range of health conditions. Among these benefits? Sunflower seed oil improves heart health, boosts energy, regenerates skin cells, strengthens the immune system, lowers cholesterol, and reduces inflammation. With time and regular usage, many see a reduction in scars, quicker wound healing, and glowing skin. In a sense, this oil is a miracle worker!

Which milk + honey Products Feature Sunflower Seed Oil?

Not so surprisingly, sunflower seed oil can be found in some of our most nourishing, healing products, including the milk + honey Arnica Balm and all three Bath & Body Oil blends. Shop these sunflower seed oil-infused products now:

How Do You Moisturize?

November 13, 2017

Consider milk + honey Bath & Body Oils your new beauty cure-all. These luxurious and nourishing oils will condition and protect your skin, leaving it smooth, soft, and supple.

All About Our Bath & Body Oils

Organic sunflower, avocado, and jojoba essential oils create the foundation of our Bath & Body Oils. Sunflower oil quickly absorbs into the deepest layer of your skin, while avocado oil — rich in proteins and vitamins — soothes skin irritation. Jojoba oil creates a protective layer on your skin that seals in water, nutrients, and vitamins from the other essential oils to keep it moisturized all day long.

Each of our Bath & Body Oils is formulated with chia seed extract and organic sea buckthorn berry fruit extract to restore dry, damaged skin. Vitamin E softens and revives dull skin. Organic pomegranate seed extract, which is packed with lipids and natural free-radical fighters, helps to prevent wrinkles.
