Herbology 101 is a series where we explore the healing properties of the Chinese medicinal herbs used in Sola Skincare. The practice of Chinese medicine has evolved over its 2,000 years and involves acupuncture, massage, physical exercise, nutritional healing, as well as herbal medicine.
Gan Cao, or licorice root, is harvested in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang Uygur, and the Gansu province of China during the spring or autumn. The medicinal root is prepared raw, roasted, or even soaked with rice wine for its use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. For consumption, it can also be boiled into a soup or tea.
Organic Olive oil is infused with thick slices of the Gan Cao and other Chinese medicinal herbs to create the base of our Soft Skin Balm. The root helps to nourish the skin, so we’ve formulated this balm to work on those parts of the body that don’t get a lot of love: the elbows, hands, and feet. We recommend massaging balm into the heels of your feet and putting on cotton socks before bed to let this balm soak into the skin as a nightly self-care ritual.
