Now with Organic Totarol preservative! Totarol is an excellent all-natural anti-bacterial preservative extracted from recycled Podocarpus totara heartwood using a special extraction process.
This native tree of New Zealand is known to live up to 1000 years. After about 200 years of growth, it develops a strong anti-bacterial substance which acts as a defense mechanism to protect the tree. Developers have invented a process to capture these properties for use in cosmetics.
Totarol has no taste and very minimal aroma. The substance has been extensively tested at independent laboratories to demonstrate bioactivity, safety and product composition. In addition to Totarol s potent anti-bacterial activity, it also possesses anti-oxidant and therapeutic properties.
As with our flower essences, Flower Essence Services body therapy products are crafted with joy and mindful focus. Flowers and other plant materials used are hand-gathered at the peak of their natural seasonal vitality, from Terra Flora or from pristine wild locations. We believe that making our products by hand in small batches is the only way to achieve optimum quality and efficacy.
As Flower Essence Services grows, our way of working with plants will always retain this personal touch. We believe that the human heart and hands have their highest place in healing with plants.
