This Sage and Rose face mist hasn't left my side since I first made it. The mid afternoon crash has a new antidote. We distill the Rose Geranium we've grown which yields a super high quality hydrosol. Rose Geranium hydrosol is a gentle toner, all of the mild plant acids helping to revive the skin and keep pore clogging bacteria in check. Clary sage acts as a mild astringent and clears the air of bad vibes- take that bad email! Jojoba oil keeps the skin supple.
Sage and Rose Face Mist is best when used within 6 months of purchase. Fat and the Moon doesn't dabble in chemicals that make things last forever.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
