Ingredient Spotlight: Rosemary & Lavender

Who doesn’t want to be in control, feel calm, and stay cool? Sometimes, we can use a little help from a friend…My Friend Violet.  Introducing: Vi!tal Cool Touch Body Spray, the quick way to manage a hot flash. As with all of our products, Vi!tal takes care of you in more than one way as it cools, soothes, and calms with skin-loving lavender and rosemary.

Violet always does her research and confidently brings solutions to every day problems. The ingredients in Vi!tal have scientific findings for their effectiveness making it the savvy girl’s spritz of choice. For instance, scientists recently found that both lavender and rosemary contain something called beta-carophyllene. This compound is so powerful that it can actually heal wounded skin. Meanwhile a different study found that topical application of lavender oil increased collagen production at a skin wound site after only four days.

A potent antioxidant (think superfruits such as goji berry and you’ll get the order of magnitude), rosemary protects the skin and prevents signs of premature aging. It also gets to work to calm skin redness, flareups and even conditions like eczema and acne, due to the main component in the leaves, rosmarinic acid.

According to Dr. Selena Langdon, quoted in an article on Byrdie, “rosemary extract’s anti-inflammatory properties could help to reduce swelling and puffiness of the skin. It also helps to heal burns and soothe the skin.

Lavender, of course, has an aromatherapeutic effect and just a whiff will keep you cool and calm. In fact, lavender extract is often used to help people who have anxiety as an instantaneous way to calm nerves through the olfactory sense.  In fact, both lavender and rosemary groups were reported to experience better moods.

With hot flashes not only being hormone-related but also stress-based, Vi!tal can be a new essential self-care element in your life.

My Friend Violet is thrilled to become your trusted resource for new kinds of body confidence.
