Wormwood Absinthium Cream
This hand and body cream takes its inspiration from the infamous hallucinogenic plant that both inspired and drove people mad during the mid to late 1800s. The French Impressionists sensationalized its beverage form, depicting café patrons in a mindless somber. With this cream form, presented as "a non-hallucinogenic skin hydrant" you can expect the sweet subtle smell of absinthe mixed with marjoram, shea butter, and cucumber extract. Its effects might not inspire you to paint or cut off your ear, but its gentle hydrating properties will take the stress off your hard-working hands and feet.
Light and extra absorbent, this cream will leave any skin surface that it touches feeling hydrated, smooth and refreshed. The simple volume of gentle, skin-soothing ingredients leaves skin with a non-oily finish.
Available in an 8 oz. emerald pet bottle with push dispenser. Please Note: Due to a global supply shortage in response to COVID-19, this product will be temporarily packaged in a clear container, not the green that is pictured.

Will this product make me hallucinate?
No it will not. Wormwood Absinthium used in our product is not in a heavy dosage, used for only its scent and not in the way it was in 19th Century France.
Can I use it as a facial moisturizer?
We do not recommend this. The ingredients are rich and fatty, facial skin texture absorbing it differently than that of the body. Because of the essential oils that create the scent, we also recommend not using the cream on anything other than the body (ie. arms, legs, hands, and feet).
Is the cream green?
No it isn't, only the bottle is. In order to make the cream itself appear green, colorant additives would need to be added, and we're just not into that.
