Wolfberry – A type of native Goji berry, harvested locally to Miraval Arizona. Wolfberry is full of hard working carotenoids and flavonoids that brighten, strengthen, and protect skin from oxidative stress.
Prickly Pear – Found abundantly throughout the Miraval Arizona property, this rich unrefined oil is soothing and anti-inflammatory. Prickly Pear stimulates new cell growth and reduces the appearance of fine lines. It is incredibly high in vitamin E and phytonutrients that repair free radical damage, soften, and regenerate skin.
Chia – Cultivated in Arizona and artisan-pressed by our favorite seed oil presser, Chia is high in a range of omegas and minerals. It is soothing, protective, supportive to our skin barrier, and plumps and firms the skin.
Jojoba – This Arizona organically farmed and pressed oil embraces desert life. It thrives in the heat and sun and helps our skin do the same. Jojoba is naturally rich in ceramides and is protective to our skin’s natural lipid barrier.
Desert Willow – Harvested locally to Miraval Arizona, this gentle and calming plant ally helps to strengthen connective tissue. Desert Willow’s soft pink flowers and strong leaves help to reduce redness and inflammation to the skin.

*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.
