Beauty Philosopher, Aromacologist & Creator of Living Libations
Living Libations was created by Nadine Artemis, beauty philosopher, aromacologist, and botanical muse, shaping plant-intelligence into palpable consecrations to blush senses and muse imaginations.
Living Libations is a line of serums, elixirs, and essentials oil that nurture beauty, enhance the immune, and promote healthy good oral care. Nadine is the author of Holistic Dental Care: the Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums.
Nadine’s official biography begins when she first combines flasks of essential oils to recreate Nina Ricci’s L’Air du Temps for a school science fair. These botanical-inclinations led her on petal-pathed adventures in creating organic beauty balms, reviving elixirs, healing oral care and perfumed poetry to quench the natural yearnings of many.
Nadine opened North America’s first full concept Aromatherapy store, Osmosis, in 1994. Since that day Nadine has since received glowing reviews for her formulations in the Hollywood Reporter, Flare, the New York Times, Vogue and The National Post. Nadine has also addressed gatherings at conferences, appeared on television and radio shows.
We start the show off talking about the sun, and how the sun has been sold to us as being a bad thing for the skin that cause everything from cancer to wrinkles. Nadine says “Not true..” and quotes some studies and several books to confirm this idea that the sun is good for the skin and, of course, our overall health.
Dehydration is one of the key causes of the skin to age, sag and generally look dull.
She gives some of the oils that are beneficial for the skin and how to use them for cleansing. She cautions not to use soap on our face.
As we have learned, the microbiome of the mouth, keeping this intact is extremely important for health mouth, teeth and gums. Nadine says many essential oils do not disrupt the microbiome as many have suggested. She says one can look at the specific essential oils she uses in her formulas for teeth and gums (on her website), to get some ideas what are the preferred oils to use.
