Featured in Allure Magazine!

Allure Magazine has been one of my absolute favorite magazines for years, so to open it up and see one of my products featured in the March, 2017 issue, is a DREAM. COME. TRUE.  The product that was named one of the editors' favorites is Oak & Ashland's floral-infused LOVE + LAVENDER body oil. Real flowers are infused into a blend of nourishing oil and then topped off with wild and French lavender essential oil.  It is then packaged in a beautifully cut glass vessel that is made out of recycled glass.  LOVE + LAVENDER is extremely versatile and can even be used on pulse points as an all-natural perfume.

So how exactly did Allure find me?  I had absolutely no connection (I do all of my own marketing, social media and P.R.), but this didn't stop me from setting my sights high!  I decided to contact them myself and ended up sending them a box full of a few of my favorite products. I had no idea who the editor was, but the box somehow made it into her hands. About 3 weeks later I was contacted by the senior beauty editor saying how much they loved my body oil and that they wanted to feature me in an upcoming issue. I think I must have read that email 3 times until it really sunk in! I was in SHOCK. They are literally sent hundreds of products each week to sample, so I was absolutely blown away that my bottle of body oil stood out.

Blue Tansy

 

This week I'm putting the spotlight on one of my ingredient crushes, Blue Tansy (botanically known as tanacetum annuum).  This steam distilled essential oil has a striking blue hue which is 100% natural and comes from the chamazulene (also reffered to as azulene).   The chamazulene has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making Blue Tansy an excellent ingredient for hot (rosacea), irritated (eczema)) and inflamed (acne) skin.  It also contains a high amount of age-fighting anti-oxidants, making the stunning Blue Tansy quite the power-house essential oil.  Because I love this essential oil so much, and because I believe in the positive skin healing capabilities it has, I have incorporated organically grown Blue Tansy into Oak & Ashland's Blue Nirvana Facial Oil.  So cheers to Blue Tansy! I hope you enjoy this naturally stunning oil as much as I do.

Oak & Ashland launches!

Woohoo!  Oak & Ashland's online store officially went live November 1st, 2015!  I have been working on Oak & Ashland for quite some time now and love that I can finally share it with all of you!  For those of you that don't know me, please let me introduce myself. My name is Danika and I am the creator of Oak & Ashland!  I am an esthetician who after 13 years of being in the skin and beauty business, desired products that were made from pure and effective ingredients. Fast-forward to the present, and here I am creating my own line of eco-chic skin care in the stunning Sonoma Wine Country. Each and every product is either hand-poured or hand-mixed and then labeled and packaged one-by-one.  Thank you for all of your support thus far and I look forward to Oak & Ashland's next blog post!
