Paloma High Dessert Cleansing Ritual Oil
What is it? Paloma is a multi-tasking lightweight, smooth, quenching oil that offers luxurious slip and glide among the seductive aromas of geranium, rose, palmarosa, and pomegranate.
Notes from the Curator: The scent of Paloma is refreshing and reviving, reminiscent of Egyptian geraniums, Moroccan roses, Madagascar orange leaves, and Nepalese palmarosa. Energetically, Paloma is cooling, light, and ethereal, evocative of the expansive, resilient, quiet, sun-drenched High Desert atmosphere.
Let’s get Nerdy: Paloma is a mythical creature, part woman, part dove. Her home is in the California High Desert among the creosote bushes, giant yucca plants, and buckhorn cholla. When sighted as a dove, she brings hope to people who are dejected, hails peace in the land, and makes you forget your sorrows. This cleansing and facial massage oil was named after Paloma the woman-dove to evoke the pure, gentle, compassionate, and peace-loving nature of the desert nymph.
- About the Brand
Earthwise Beauty was created by Ava Zhan Ava grew in Poland and moved to the U.S. and worked as an editor for a major U.S. publisher. She felt compelled to make and share her love of natural ingredients and skincare crafted from medicinal plants, that felt more satisfying to her than the skincare she found in stores. And so Earthwise was born. Using Ava's products feels like walking deep into lush living forests.
- How to Use
Shake the bottle briefly, then dispense 4 to 6 pumps of the oil into the palms of your hands. Press into dry skin and gently massage using upward and outward circular motions to remove makeup and impurities, and to boost circulation. Add more oil as needed for a smooth glide. Follow with a warm, wet facial towel to massage the skin and remove the oil. You may then use a foaming cleanser as your second cleanse if desired. Alternatively, Paloma may be used as a massage oil applied on clean and damp or dry skin, or as a leave-on hydrating face oil.
