This can be used as a body oil on dry skin and can also be used as a beard oil.
It's a gift from South Whidbey forests and some of our own board members (aka, the 10 fir trees at Silly Dog Studios who we know by name) for times when you don't have the time or access to be able to walk in the woods to relax and rest. We gather branches after winter wind storms drop them to the ground, and then infuse the branches into organic extra virgin olive oil for at least 6 and up to 9 weeks, until the oil smells like our daily walks in the woods and feels like a soothing hug when you rub it in. We use it to soften dry skin, to feel grounded, to relax and accept difficult news (the scent calms our minds and eases tension and stress), and I even use it to stop fly away hair on extra frizzy hair days (although use in the hair wasn't its original intended use and I make no promises you'll like it for use in your hair--that might just be me). We have friends who use the oil to support meditation, yoga, prayer, and relaxing on the couch. Friends who use it to feel grounded in meetings and traffic. Friends who use it to get to sleep at night (to feel like they are out camping in the woods when they can't actually be).
Ingredients: Whidbey storm-fallen Douglas Fir branches (from Silly Dog Studios & walks in neighboring woods) infused into organic extra virgin olive oil.
Storage and life of the product: Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. We make this oil available for retail sales in 2 ounce amber bottles only, because the shelf life of this precious fir-infused oil, with no chemicals added, is about 18 months. We've learned that plant-infused oils have minds of their own and you may find that a tiny bit of oil pools under the bottle itself, so we recommend storing the bottle on a hard surface that you don't mind getting a teeny bit of oil on.
Refills: If you live on, or visit, Whidbey Island, we refill these bottles for $6 here at Silly Dog Studios. Much of the expense of making them is in the special amber bottle to protect the oil and extend its shelf life and in the oil-proof label that, as it turns out, is really damn pricey. Hugs (and yay!) to anyone willing to reuse their bottles!
