Beauty Cabin in the woods with Fig + Yarrow (+VIDEO)

  Hello natural beauty lovers,

  today is a big day for you and me. First, because I am going to seriously freshen up the Beauty Section of the blog and take you to the woods today (destination is up to you – Alps, Big Bear, wherever you say!). Second, I just couldn’t keep all this amazing beauty experience to myself, so I’ve created a VIDEO. Yes yes, crazy things are happing over here. The very first video in the history of TLV Birdie Blog. Hope you will enjoy it and it will make you feel like you’re sharing these precious beauty retreat moments with me. Make yourself comfortable, today I am introducing you to FIG + YARROW.

Fig + Yarrow is an artisan beauty line established by the gorgeous and full of true life spirit Brandy Monique, that has successfully turned her love to Mother Nature and the magical beauty properties of botanicals, earth elements and minerals into small-batch handcrafted skincare brand. All the Fig + Yarrow products are thoughtfully packed in eco-friendly glass bottles to keep all the natural ingredients fresh for the customer. Formulated with the certified organic essential oils and raw natural components, these beauty products aim to bring the best organic apothecary secrets to your bathroom shelf. Fig + Yarrow skincare products are easy to find almost all over the world, their list of stockists is quite impressive (USA, Europe, Canada, Australia), plus Urban Outfitters and a few more online retailers have also included Fig+Yarrow goods into their beauty departments (see the full list of F+Y stockists here). Oh well, I am not surprised, because these little jars are definitely something special!

Take a glimpse of Fig + Yarrow natural skincare world I’ve recreated with their bath+body products in this video (if your imagination is working properly, I bet you can smell that rich herbal aroma in the air!) :

Don’t get me wrong, I won’t jump on vlogging tomorrow and you most definitely won’t see “makeup tutorials” on TLV Birdie Blog as long as I keep my sanity. However, I am going to produce more atmospheric videos like this in the future while my styling collaborations and other creative projects. So feel free to follow me on Vimeo. Plus, there you can see this video in HD, on full screen, with popcorn kale chips.

Now let’s take a closer look :

Fig + Yarrow Bath+Body Oil Meadow is a dreamy skin getaway. Based on the best of the best essential oils and botanical elements, it creates a nourishing and pampering blend with a comforting floral scent. Definitely worth every second of warming massage into damp skin after hot shower, and can also be used for bath as a nutritive bonus if you add a few pumps to warm water. Awesomely hydrates and wakes up your senses (plus, makes you imagine you’re on some aromatherapy spa resort).

Among Ingredients: Sweet Almond oil, Pumpkin seed oil, Olive oil, Grape seed oil, Camomile flower oil, Marigold flower oil, Ylang Ylang essential oil, Rosemary leaf extract, Rosewood essential oil etc (see the full ingredients list here).

So talking about bath, I remember there’re a few bath salts lovers over there in comments, so these are for you : Fig + Yarrow have some amazing blends of mineral bath salts, available in full size for solid bath experts, or in sample size for occasional warm bath enthusiasts, like this Bath Trio. All you need for proper detoxification, relaxation and aromatherapeutic benefits comes inside the bath salt blends of three different variations. Mustard Soak (yellowish, on the top) is a traditional recipe mix to cure fever, cold and to give a relief on sore muscles. Perfect for after yoga class, light spicy scent. Pink Love Salts (pinkish, in the middle) is a very aromatic blend of pure essential oils from Himalayan pink salts that are known for their high minerals value. Calming, loving and purifying. Absolutely can’t wait to repeat this bath, I couldn’t describe the smell better than just “pink”! Floral Milk Bath (whitish, on the bottom) would be the most universal choice scent-wise, it reminds me of chai latte aroma with it’s milky yet herbal essence. Rich on therapeutic minerals and skin-softening properties, perfect for a full body bath on your “skin quality time” day (every day, any day).

Among Ingredients: Dead Sea salt, Epsom Salt, Baking Soda, sweet cream buttermilk powder + essential oils of Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Geranium Bourbon and Jasmine (Floral Milk Bath); Himalayan pink salt + essential oils of Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Orange and Geranium Bourbon (Pink Love Salts); Sea salt, Epsom salt, Baking soda, yellow mustard powder + essential oils of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Birch, Tyme, Cajeput (Mustard soak).

I only wish Fig + Yarrow Cardamon + Coffee Body Scrub could come in a few pounds size! I love body scrubs, but not as much as I love coffee! When my two personal obsessions come in one product that also aims to make my skin baby soft and give a proper fight against cellulite, could I wish for more? Well, apparently, yes. I can’t stop telling you how much I miss Tel Aviv, and here I got a spicy reminding of Old Jaffa streets aroma – cardamon! It’s very common on Middle East to add spices into coffee, and Cardamon makes a signature taste and warms you up from inside. Blended together with Caffe Vita’s Theo Blend of finest coffee beans and a bunch of decent essential oils and natural ingredients, this body scrub firms, exfoliates and acts as a generous antioxidant for your skin. Luxurious scent, great feel, perfectly smooth skin.

Among ingredients: Cane sugar, Olive Oil, Arabica coffee beans, Castor oil, Cocoa butter, Shea nut butter, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Rosemary leaf extract, Cardamon essential oil.

Here’s one another scrub formulated to make your feet very happy. Actually, much more than just a scrub, Fig + Yarrow Foot Treatment Alpine Pumice is a great multi-tasker – it effectively (yet gently) exfoliates and thoughtfully nourishes skin on your feet, plus leaves a crisp alpine fresh scent. You only need a little amount of this treatment to massage into feet and forget about rough skin. I told you I will take you into the woods, didn’t I?:)

Among ingredients: Powdered Pumice stone, Olive Oil, Shea nut butter, French clay, Baking soda, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, Menthol, Rosemary leaf extract, essential oils of Lavender, Tea tree, Fir Needle.

All these skincare products I’ve wrote about till this point come together in beautifully eco-friendly packaged Bath + Body Kit {Coffee and Meadow} and will make a great present (I was sky high when I just received it!). Valentine’s day is coming, are you prepared?;)

Plus, two more of my personal favorites from Fig + Yarrow are :

Fig + Yarrow Foot Butter is an ultimate life-saver for me! I pay lots of attention to keep my feet soft and smooth, but I still look forward to simplify that feet routine. This foot butter does a great job to actually soften my feet, so I tend to use it (and only it!) every time after shower and before going to bed. Plus, little feet massage never heart no one! Plus plus, I really love to use this butter balm before my yoga class to reawaken the senses and make my feet look polished!

Among ingredients: Shea nut butter, Coconut oil, Menthol, Vitamin E, Rosemary leaf extract, essential oils of Fir needle, Lavender, Tea tree.

Fig + Yarrow Hair + Scalp tonic is that essential product everyone needs on the bathroom shelf! Super effective and able to handle various missions at a time, it became our family favorite. I’ll tell you how we use it : 1) as a scalp treatment. I apply a little amount with a dropper, massage and spread it through hair and especially focus on ends, that tend to be quite dry lately. Then I rinse and shampoo normally. 2) my husband had discovered this rich on essential oils tonic as a beard treatment and conditioner. 3) I’ve tried to add a few drops into my regular conditioner to make it even more effective, and I totally loved the result. The ingredients list is long, impressive and powerful on conditioning, stimulating, nourishing and enhancing the quality of hair and sculpt.

Among ingredients: Olive oil, Hemp seed oil, Avocado seed oil, Coconut oil, Argan oil, Meadowfoam oil, Neem oil, Horsetail oil, Oat straw oil, Stinging nettle leaf, Rosemary leaf, Burdock root, Vitamin E, Rosemary leaf extract, Lavender oil, Ylang Ylang, Bay rum.
