Bergenia - Vuorenkilpi

Bergenia can be used to make an invigorating and soothing facial oil using the green leaves. The plant consists of Arbutin, which calms redness, invigorates and smoothes out age spots.

HOW TO MAKE: 

- Collect the green leaves.
- Chop the leaves into small pieces. 
- Place the chopped leaves into a small bowl (metal). 
- Cover the leaves with extra virgin olive oil. 
- Simmer over low heat (60-70 degrees Celsius) for over two (2) hours. 
- Strain and place the oil in a clean, empty jar. 
- Store in the refrigerator. 
- Lasts for about two (2) weeks.
