The birch is called “the life-giving tree” for a reason. Not only is this super tree packed with potent nutrients, it actually has the ability to make the ground on which it grows fertile for other plants and trees. When it comes to traditional northern herbal medicine, all parts of the tree have been used to treat various skin disorders. From drinkable sap-detoxifiers to antibacterial wound healing patches made from its bark and leaves. In our formulas we use birch leaf water and extract for their cleansing, detoxifying, toning, balancing, soothing and hydrating effects on the skin. Need we say more? We love birch.
