Neem and Immortelle go together like bread and butter, flowers and bees, water and life. This powerful plant duo synergizes to create a therapeutic and simple yet rich formulation.
Skin Benefits using
Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion
Neem leaf is the star botanical in Ayurveda for troubled, stressed, highly-expressive and congested skin, and our Neem Infusion is traditionally crafted in the Ayurvedic style of herbal oil cured infusion. How? Neem leaf is simmered in water to make a powerfully strong decoction. The decoction is strained, added to organic sesame oil, with more neem leaves, and then the three are gently cooked over a low temperature until the water from the decoction evaporates and you are left with a very concentrated extract of neem infused into the sesame oil.
Neem oil is nutrient-rich in antioxidants, calcium, vitamin E and essential fatty acids (EFAs) and purifies blemish-prone and troubled skin.
Immortelle + Skin
The Immortelle half of this formulation comes from an infusion based on the traditional western-herbalism technique. Fresh immortelle flowers are infused into extra-virgin California-grown olive oil for a period of four to six weeks and then strained.
Immortelle is an incredible ally for all skin, but especially skin that is troubled, irritated, red, dry or sunburned.

Pacifies heat and reduces signs of redness and sensitivity.

A Myriad of Remedies
Oil Cleansing with Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion
Oil Cleansing is the most fortifying and nourishing way to cleanse the skin. It is ideal for skin that’s troubled, extremely dry, sensitive, reactive, acne-prone and/or congested — or for minimalists who enjoy simple formulations. It is also the best cleansing method for removing makeup and sunscreen. The process is a little more involved than other forms of cleansing, but the thoroughness and the deep cleanse that it provides makes it well worth the extra effort. Watch how to Oil Cleanse here.
Slowly massage Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion into dry skin, remove with a steamy washcloth and follow with your Oil & Water application.
Daily Oil & Water Application
For congested, blemish-prone and reactive skin, pair Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion as your daily Oil Serum with your choice of HydroSoul. This creates a foundation for optimal skin health: authentic moisture, hydration and deep nourishment. We love pairing the infusion with Rose Geranium, Lemon Thyme, Immortelle, Tulsi or Blood Orange HydroSoul.
After a shower or after cleansing, combine 1-2 pumps of Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion with 3-5 sprays of a HydroSoul of your choice and gently massage into your skin. For drier skin or added protection, apply one of our Day Moisturizers or Shea Butters on top.
Deep Clay Masking with Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion
For blemish-prone or reactive skin, add a pump or two of Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion into the base of one of our clay masks. This adds a boost of nutrients and antioxidants to the mask, prolongues clay’s activation period and provides deeper exfoliation.
Spot Treatment using Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion
When you feel blemishes arising, apply a drop of Neem Immortelle Purifying Infusion as a spot treatment after cleansing skin.
