Good Medicine formulas feature a powerful infusion of wildcrafted desert botanicals of chaparral, wild desert sage, and juniper berries. These plants grow in the wild where they are nurtured by sunlight and rain and are neither crossbred, chemically fertilized or even irrigated. They remain free of the harsh chemicals so prevalent in plant life today.
CHAPARRAL / larrea tridentata
BRIGHTENS + STRENGTHENS + SOFTENS
Chaparral has naturally occurring antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-protozoan properties. It contains high levels of Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid (NDGA), a very powerful antioxidant. These potent properties eliminate acid-forming microbes that cling to the surface tissues, thus preserving the skin’s natural barrier. It guards against rough patches, lesions, red areas, age spots and inflammatory breakouts.
WILD DESERT SAGE / artemisia tridentata
POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT + RICH IN VITAMIN C
The foliage of sagebrush is rich in Artimitin, a powerful disinfectant and antiseptic rich in Vitamin C. So rich in Vitamin C in fact, that except for rose hips, there is no greater source found anywhere in North America’s deserts. Sage’s antiseptic and disinfectant properties combine with the antioxidant power of Vitamin C to create a germ-free environment to reduce harmful ions and prevent free radical formation.
UTAH JUNIPER BERRIES / juniperus utahensis
REDUCES PUFFINESS + PURIFIES + SMOOTHES
The berries of the Utah Juniper are best known for their antiseptic (elimination of micro-organisms), aromatic, diaphoretic, diuretic (increases cellular fluid exchange) and rubefacient (increased blood circulation) qualities. The combination of these amazing qualities removes unwanted waste and fluids from the underlying tissues when applied topically, reducing puffiness and smoothing lines and wrinkles.
Pure essential oils.
We have been sourcing essential oils for over 40 years and have learned that oils are products of the communities they are found within. Therefore, we are very conscious to buy only those oils which are not only the highest quality, but are sustainable and support the larger community. We have researched small families in many countries who have been making a single oil and passing their knowledge down to the next generations. We have had the luxury of time to really find the purest and best essential oils the world has to offer. Each oil arrives in our Lab with its own testing certificate.
