At the homestead of Fat and the Moon, they like to think of themselves as minimal maximalists. If they make something, grow something, buy something they want it to serve at it’s maximum potential! Stack those functions!
The Lip & Cheek stain embodies this very idea. The crafter, Rachel, finally achieved the color she’d been searching for, a not too pink, a little red wine-y a little black berry-y stain, free of heavy metal based color. Alkanet and beet root give this stain its rich color and its mild and earthy scent, with just a touch of essential oil of rose geranium. Rose geranium is used in aromatherapy to reduce nervousness and tension, and has mild antibacterial, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties which all aid in the overall health of the skin. A little dab of this stuff on the apples of your cheeks and on your lips adds just the right dose of color. Because of the beeswax, this stain has great staying power. Put a little on for a subtle effect or more for a lipstick like look.
Heads up: Some find the smell of the alkanet root too earthy for their tastes- alkanet has a flave akin to valerian root.
