Sage – This Arizona-cultivated and artisan-distilled Sage stimulates cell renewal and is an antioxidant activity booster. It supports our own enzymatic activity and gently stimulates circulation to promote healing.
Globemallow – A direct sister to Marshmallow, this soft leaf and gentle orange flower also offer Nature’s form of Hyaluronic Acid. It is soothing, hydrating, calming, and protecting. Globemallow is rich in B vitamins and is plumping and hydrating to the skin. It can be found growing throughout the Miraval Arizona property.
Chaparral/Creosote – Laurel developed a strong bond with the Creosote plant during this process. It is praised for its potent anti-inflammatory effects and it aides in preventing free radical damage. It is most commonly known as an ancient and powerful heal-all medicine by most local Indigenous tribes located throughout the southwest. It is actively researched in skin cancer cell inhibition.
Lime – Arizona organically farmed and artisan steam-distilled Lime ensures that the furocoumarins responsible for photosensitivity are not present. This bright citrus plant provides a variety of nourishing nutrients that work to brighten, hydrate, balance, and repair skin. Lime also creates and leaves an uplifting scent for your spirit.
Honeysuckle – This delicate scent requires a daily flower harvesting and enfleurage process which takes many months to capture. These hand-harvested Arizona flowers strengthen the skin barrier while simultaneously soothing redness and irritation.

*Wildcrafting is not a term that you see used often at Laurel Skin. In the commercial beauty and health industries wildcrafting or wild-harvesting can put a strain on the environment, animal habitats, and Indigenous communities. Laurel Skin does not condone wildcrafting plants on Indigenous lands unless it only and directly financially supports the Indigenous folks doing the harvesting. Laurel Skin does not condone any scale of wildcrafting that may bring harm to the micro-ecosystems of a particular area. This is especially seen in the essential oil and supplement industries, and we genuinely wish for that type of wildcrafting to come to an end. That said, some of the herbs (not essential oils) for the collection made exclusively for Miraval were ethically and mindfully wildcrafted in small and limited amounts by herbalists local to their regions. The amount we could harvest actually determined how much product we were able to create, and that is weather and yield dependent. Especially with the desert plants, we wanted to utilize these plants which were native and abundant to the desert region. These medicinal plants are not farmed or cultivated. None of these plants were harvested on Indigenous lands, and all were harvested on privately or publicly owned lands where each plant is abundant or even invasive and not at all at-risk. This responsibility is something Laurel personally takes very seriously, and we do not encourage wildcrafting for those who do not have this level of awareness around this global sourcing concern.
