When you infuse poplar buds in oil it creates a naturally antibiotic and anti-inflammatory healing oil which can be used to remedy all kinds of ailments (including pain). Poplar bud oil can also be used in salves, such as the Northlore skin stick to treat troubled skin. Keep reading if you want to find out how I use this healing salve in my personal life.
1. Body Moisture. The Northlore skin stick is incredibly hydrating. The poplar buds are extracted into pure olive oil, which is an intense moisturizer. Olive oil is rich in anti-aging and antioxidant properties that penetrate deeply into the dermal layer of the skin. One of my favourite ways to use the skin stick is to warm a small amount in my hands, and massage it into my clients legs after a sugaring service. The stick also contains calendula which is a soothing and healing ingredient.
2. All Natural Deodorant. This is a new thing I'm trying. As many of you know, I strictly sugar my underarms. No shaving! Which makes me feel less stinky to begin with. However while I'm busy making all of you hair free, I sometimes work up a sweat. The skin stick smells amazing, so in a pinch recently I took my stick out of my purse and used it on my underarms. The moisture in my underarms seemed to dissipate almost instantly leaving me feeling super fresh. I've been using it for a few days now, and I'm officially swapping this with my regular deodorant.
3. Heal Cuts /Scrapes. The Poplar Buds skin stick has an extra thick consistency (thanks to the addition of beeswax!) which helps to keep moisture in, while also soothing the skin. The Poplar Bud Skin Stick also contains Tocopherol (Vitamin E) which provides the skin with necessary moisture and antioxidants for intense healing. In addition to healing cuts and scrapes, this stick also makes a great tattoo after care moisturizer!
There you have it. Those are my absolute favourite ways to use the Northlore Skin Stick. Hope that gives you some new ideas and inspires you to pick one up for yourself!
