Hydrosols - Essential Oils - Refreshers

“evolving the art of elemental alchemy”

Essential Oils

For many centuries, essential oils were considered the treasure of empires and were used successfully as an original form of medicine.  Plants contain complex, powerful substances known as essential oils.  These are aromatic liquids derived from trees, shrub, roots and flowers, herbs and seeds. They are vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt.  In ancient times, oils were more respected for their medicinal and healing properties than for their scent and today this respect in being revitalized.  Our essential oils are wildcrafted and prepared at the base of the majestic Sangre de Cristos.


“Pinyon Pine Hydrosol is reported to be one of the best general tonics and an effective immune system stimulant.”


Legendary Refreshers™

Clear Mind Legendary Refresher™ is an alchemical combination of frankincense (Boswellia sp.), myrrh (myrrhae), and pinyon pine (Pinus edulis) essential oils and specially conditioned water.  This refresher evokes the qualities of clarity, brilliance, and upliftment.

To use this refresher, shake it well first.  Then, spray a small amount on your skin to test for any allergic reactions to the essential oils.  If there is a reaction, discontinue use of the refresher.  If there is no reaction, hold the refresher above your head, with eyes closed, spray a generous mist over your head and face for upliftment, refreshment, and olfactory enjoyment.

Use Clear Mind Legendary Refresher™ to support clarity of mind, to encourage upliftment, and to be truly present.  Some people like to keep this refresher in their vehicles in order to refresh themselves while driving.  Others like to keep one in the office to help reduce stress. Use it to feel like royalty and use it to enhance lucid dreaming.  This refresher may turn milky over time, which is a very good sign. If yours turns white, feel blessed!

Our Gift for a limited time only: Pinyon ‘Live Oil’ recipe


Hydrosols are the condensate water co-produced during the steam or hydro-distillation of plant material for aroma-therapeutic purposes.  Hydrosols are to be use externally, internal use is still experimental. Pinyon Pine hydrosol has a sweet and refreshing aroma.  Undiluted, the flavor is quite ‘resiny’.  Pinyon Pine Hydrosol is reported to be one of the best general tonics and an effective immune system stimulant. It is antiseptic, antibacterial, mildly anti-fungal and decongestant.  Use in baths, showers, steam rooms and saunas. It’s great in the humidifier in winter as well. 

Experimental properties of a closely related species, Scotch Pine (pinus sylvestris), has shown reduction of blood pressure, cholesterol and arterial plaque.  Anecdotal internal use of Pinyon Pine hydrosol has shown to be effective in treating hangovers as well as effective at increasing feelings of elation and levity.
