LIVING LIBATIONS

What a joy and honour it is to announce that Living Libations is now available in Switzerland.

Living Libations is an exquisite line of serums, elixirs and essentials oils for those seeking the purest of the pure, created by Nadine Artemis (pictured below). Described by Alanis Morissette as “a true-sense visionary”. Nadine’s healing creations, along with her concept of “Renegade Beauty”, inspire people to rethink conventional notions of beauty and wellness.

Nadine formulates with a palette of ingredients that nourish, replenish and infuse the intelligent juice of botanicals into every bottle. The result is radiance and cellular-harmony allowing the beauty of your nature to shine through. 

It’s no wonder this cult brand is loved, adored and cherished throughout the world.

'Nature is effortless beauty. Beauty that flows thru you, not applied to you. Beauty is not another regime of becoming. It is luxurious ease. Your own beauty is now, that clear, that near.' Nadine Artemis.

PURITY

All Libations' botanicals are authentic and pure and distilled only from the named plant matter. Our wild crafted plant matter is collected from the plants' natural habitat in lieu of a farm. We avoid offering botanicals from rare or threatened species of plants growing in the wild to discourage their disruption and disappearance. Our organic oils originate from plants cultivated without synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides. 

To amplify the potency of the aromatic essence in the plant being distilled, our harvesters gather the part of the plant needed for the oil at the ideal time of day for each plant. An ancient and artful distillation method further ensures that the maximum amount of compounds and trace elements are captured in every drop. Most of our oils are distilled with nothing more than pure water.

Our ‘absolute’ oils are a unique type of extraction used required by a few plants that that need a solvent to liberate the aromatic molecules from the plant’s cellulose. The solvent is cleanly removed after distillation.

All Libations are vegan and gluten free. Our oat straw (Avena sativa), also known as milky oats, is certified gluten free; it is an herbal infusion of the green, unripe stem or straw of the oat plant, and the seeds, which are the cereal grain, are not included in the infusion.

BETTER THAN GOOD: LIBATION'S MANUFACTURING QUALITY ASSURANCE

Legitimate Labelling

Beware of the natural-speak catchwords that line the labels of many "health" products: natural, eco-friendly, cruelty-free, pure, non-synthetic, certified organic, ‘therapeutic-grade” and A-grade ratings. (If you say too many of the words  together you may feel as though you should be sitting in a forest  playing a harp while drinking herbal tea and discussing your aura with a  rabbit.) These phrases are devoid of scientific foundations or official regulations, yet they are frequently used to market products and promises.

Every component of a Libation is an active ingredient. We put the ingredients list on the front of the bottle as an invitation to be read. We make each formula with care and attention, and we want Libations lovers to easily find and understand what is in each product.

Our essential oils and supercritical extracts are highly concentrated; we preserve purity, space, and resources by offering full potency products without fillers, diluters, artificial colours, or petrochemicals.

Global Responsibility is a popular marketing trend and for this we are deeply grateful. Living Libations' rigorous standard of purity honours the health and preservation of forests, lakes and rivers, farms, the people who cultivate and distil for us, our families, our neighbours, and our clients.

For over 20 years we have nurtured personal relationships with artisan distillers and family farmers around the globe to secure authentic oils and extracts that are purely and fairly produced. Many of the highest quality plants and flowers used in plant oils are indigenous to the developing world, and the people native to those regions learned from their families the ancient craft of distillation. We can trace the source of our oils from the plant growing in the field to the oil arriving on our doorway. It is our pleasure to observe fair trade practices so that our skilled farmers, harvesters, and distillers are safe and earn a fair wage for their labour and goods.

Essential oil yields vary from year to year depending on weather patterns, plant growth and health, and even political stability in some regions. As with wine, some years are just more fine than others. All of these factors influence the availability and the price of the botanicals we use.

Animal Testing is and always has been a non-issue for Libations creations. Botanical oils have blessed and benefited humans for all of recorded history, and this is copious proof of their safety and effectiveness.

Our Libations creations are as raw as possible. There is no such thing as a raw essential oil because they are produced by steam distilling plant matter. Our essential oils are produced via a long and slow distillation at the lowest temperature possible for excellent quality. All of our fatty oils are cold pressed and completely unheated.

 

PHILOSOPHY

Our Living Ethic of Nature, Beauty, and Being

Beauty is everyone’s birthright as a blessing of nature. It is the effervescent insignia of the divinity in our souls. Beauty endures with time. It cannot be pursued, purchased, or put on. Tending to Beauty is simple; step into it and liberate it from vogue inclinations, marketing madness, and artificial facades.

Beyond the limits of linear business thinking, Libation's beauty is the deep action and integrity of Nature. Each Libation is an invitation to wonder and wander from finite beauty to an open field of grace. It is about being the connoisseur of your life, living as deliberately as nature and nourishing the discernment of the senses.

The bounty of nature's beauty endlessly illuminates our entire insides, and the nectar of plants is an ever-offering gift that magnifies Beauty. Libations plays with the possible ways nature may be inhaled, stirred, soothed, and imbued.

Every Libations creation presents itself to reignite one’s being. Our creations kaleidoscope nature’s essence from a web wider than wonder and invite the cosmic intelligence of botanicals into an outpouring of delight.  

Our Libations proclaim, "Let light pour through the door of every parched and perked pore. Engage with the pure plant poetry that sparks your cellular effervescence."

Revivified, our cells dance diamonds on a sunlit lake.

Attentive awareness grew our creations, mixed with a dash of play! Libations is here to enchant: to enhance the ambiance, to flora the aura, and to mist, bathe, infuse, diffuse, amuse, and shower sweet-selves with blessings bestowed from rhythms of nature. Nature knows divine.
