Massage a few drops of this vibrant green balancing herbal infusion into the skin after cleansing and toning.

If you prefer, you can also blend the serum with one of our toners in your palm to create an emulsion, and then massage the emulsion into the skin. This serum works as both a serum and moisturizer so there is no need to follow with a moisturizer.
Blue Chamomile essential oil // Also known as German chamomile, this blue essential oil is one of the most powerful healing oils for the skin. Close in kin to blue tansy, aka Moroccan chamomile, this oil is high in flavonoids, terpenoids, oxides, and azulenes (chamazulene is what gives the essential oil its beautiful blue color). It has antioxidant, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and powerful skin healing effects. A great addition to skincare products for problematic skin.

Immortelle essential oil // Helichrysum, also known as immortelle or everlasting, is a small yellow flower with amazing healing and regenerative properties. It gets its name from the fact that the blooms never wilt! The essential oil is a powerful healer and has cell regenerative properties. Used in synergy with blue chamomile, it creates a powerhouse skin healing combo, great for diminishing redness and speeding the healing of blemishes. This is a wonderful anti-aging and healing ingredient.

Tamanu oil // Pressed from the nut of the Ati tree and a gorgeous green color, this exotic oil has cicatrisant, antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This oil is especially useful for healing acne and skin irritations.

Pomegranate oil // Useful for cell regeneration, anti-aging, and deep nourishment. Pomegranate oil is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, and unique components such as ellagic acid which helps prevent UV damage and puninic acid (omega-5) which helps reduce skin inflammation and prevents moisture loss. Pomegranate oil has the ability to deeply penetrate the skin to nourish, fight free radicals that cause aging and may also help improve the skin's texture.

Grapeseed oil // This oil is cold pressed from the seed of grapes and is rich in beta-carotene, vitamins D, C, E, and essential fatty acids like linoleic acid. It is a lightweight oil that can help retain moisture, promote skin repair and elasticity, and is easily absorbed.

Safflower Oil Infusion // Not all safflower oil is created equal. We use a high quality oil that is extremely high in linolenic (Omega-3) and linoleic acid (Omega-6), both beneficial fatty acids. Research has shown that linoleic acid is effective in cell regulation, skin-barrier repair, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Linolenic acid may help speed up wound healing and reduce inflammation. Safflower oil is a light feeling oil that is great for both dry skin and breakout prone skin. We infuse this amazing oil with blemish-busting thyme and sebum-balancing green tea.

Ingredients: Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oil* infused with Camellia sinensis (green tea)* and Thymus vulgaris (thyme)*, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba)*, Vitis vinifera (grapeseed) oil*, Calophyllum inophyllum (tamanu) oil*, Oenothera biennis (evening primrose) oil*, Punica granatum (pomegranate) oil, Sambucus nigra (elderberry) fruit extract, tocopherols (non-GMO vitamin E)*, Matricaria recutita (blue chamomile) essential oil, Helichrysum italicum (immortelle) essential oil, Citrus aurantium (Neroli) essential oil*, balancing essential oil blend* *certified organic

Loved this oil

Got a sample, then purchased the full size. If trying to decide between all the oils on the site, this is the one to try. Though I love them all, this is amazing.

Herbal Balancing Serum

I like this as a change up from using the nighttime treatment oil both night and day. I think my skin likes the change up too. The smell isn’t as lovely as the other products have been, but I only smell it when putting it on, so it’s not a huge deal.

So far so good!

Fragrance is earthy with floral tones. It’s not too heavy and it leaves my skin moisturized and balanced all day. I haven’t seen significant results in my acne and acne scars, but it’s not having any bad side effects on my face so I’ll keep using and see if there are any changes in the next week or so.

HI Johanna! So glad you are liking the Herbal Serum and thank you for taking the time to leave a review :) If you are not seeing the results you are looking for with the Herbal Serum alone, we recommend adding the Neroli Toner and also exfoliating 2-3x per week. You can always message us at info@apoterra.com for additional guidance or read more tips here: https://www.apoterra.com/pages/breakouts

Have a great day!

Herbal Balancing Serum w/Immortelle & Green Tea

Tried a sample of this. I applied at night to help clear blemishes. I used up all of it in a few nights and it seems to have helped. I think I would see more improvement if I used for longer duration.
