Booze and beauty don’t normally go hand-in-hand. Well, unless an evening getting all dolled up is later spent sipping vodka martinis. So, I was pretty excited to discover that a new favorite of mine, Folie Apothecary’s Palo Santo + Peru Balsam All Purpose Mist is made using grain alcohol, which is the key ingredient in a variety of spirits.
I’m sure there’s very little grain alcohol in the mist, but it’s still nice to know that one of my new favorites is a tad Lushworthy.
About the mist…it smells amazing. There are notes of pine, mint, lemon, and vanilla. It’s also very much all purpose. You can use the mist on your body, face, and linens. Personally, I use it for everything, but it serves as a nice refresher on the body, given these sweltering summer months. Additionally, the various ingredients (white sage oil, peru balsam oil, vetiver essential oil) can help in reducing inflammation, fading dark spots, and more.
Folie Apothecary’s Palo Santo + Peru Balsam All Purpose Mist is available for purchase on Etsy for $22. They’ve also just released a new scent, Fleur de Mer. So, be on the lookout for that, as well.
