A PEEK AT SEA-BUCKTHORN

Sea-buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.)


What it is: A hardy, deciduous, flowering shrub native to cold-temperate climates in Europe & Asia.


Parts used: Fruit and/or Seed


Medium: Cold-pressed oil (seed, berry, or both), CO2 extract


Why you want it: Sea-buckthorn is loaded with vitamins (C! E! K!), crazy-rich in antioxidants (mostly carotenoids) including beta-carotene and lycopene, and full of beneficial fatty acids.


Untamed insights:

  • Sea-buckthorn's bright orange/red colors align it with nourishment, passion, joy, playfulness, expression, and encouragement.

  • As a thorned shrub, it is considered deeply protective.

  • We like to think Sea-buckthorn's ability to thrive and produce fruit/seed in relatively barren, harsh, and dry climates means it brings a unique support for weathered, dry, or lived-in skin.
