Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize & Uplift, both Face and Body
As a wonderfully hydrating ingredient, rose creates an unparalleled self-care experience.
Cold weather aggravates, dries, and irritates, often making it difficult to find moisturizing products that are both effective and gentle enough for chapped or injured skin. With its classic alluring scent, Rose is one of our favorite essential winter allies that makes us happy all year long!
Extracts of Rose are strongly hydrating and rejuvenating, supporting skin texture and tone to improve the look of scars, wrinkles, and large pores. Rose is a powerful astringent, and those who suffer from inflammatory skin conditions can appreciate Rose's cooling properties that naturally help balance the complexion.
Rose has something for every skin type, and we have Rose for every step in your skincare routine...Explore our ROSE COLLECTION below:

Summer Skin Saver: Lavender
Cooling, calming, and refreshing, Lavender is a must for radiant summer skin! It cleanses and clarifies, soothes irritation and skin congestion, calms sunburns, and improves the look of sun damage. Featured in many KM Herbals formulas, including this month's sensitive skin samples, Lavender works gently to accommodate every skin type.
Hydrosols are created when plant materials - such as roots, barks, flowers, leaves, stems, and seeds - are steam distilled to obtain an essential oil. The distillation process yields another separate water portion of the water soluble compounds of the plant. This water extraction is called a "hydrosol" and these can be used for multiple aromatherapy and skincare applications. They have many of the same healing properties as the plant's essential oil, but are very gentle and easy to apply.
Hydrosols are often used in skin care recipes as bases for lotions, masks, and facial treatments. As toners, hydrosols can be cleansing, hydrating, and help minimize the appearance of large pores. They also help to balance pH and sebum production, making them useful for both dry and oily skin.
