Found in Farmacy’s invincible serum 

I love this because it feels very holistic to use – natural at its best. Or in other words the name given to all nine species of flowering plants that are from the daisy family. It has a very extensive history, dating back to the early 20th century. It is very often used for problem skin, not to differently to what native American tribes used it for in aliments.

Generally found in North America, it is a shrub that grows purple flowers with many properties including; healing, anti-bacterial, antibiotic. In terms of skin it can; fight acne, diminish wrinkles and all down to its anti-bacterial properties, it can be used as a disinfectant on brushes, cuts.

Not only does it have uses in skincare but as mentioned above it can be used as treatment for bladder infections to malaria.

A very powerful tool.
