This is an attempt to revisit and supercharge an old product with some radical feminist energy. The product formerly known as Sleeping Beauty Oil --one of our powerhouses with Camellia Oil (skin identical, rich in oleic acids and Omegas 3, 6 and 9), Blue Tansy Oil (anti-inflammatory, balancing, helps acne, redness and irritated skin), Retinol (anti-aging and helps acne), Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil (Helps skin regeneration, elasticity and acne) and even more. But when Adeline made Sleeping Beauty, she wasn't aware of the rape culture origins of the fairytale.
So when deciding to bring back the formulation and decided to change the name to Wise Old Crone. Because age in women needs to be further celebrated, just like the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where a broken pot's old cracks are sealed with gold to show how it is even more beautiful, because of the damage in has healed from. Because by using Wise Old Crone, you're not hiding your years, just looking the best you can at all your ages.

I've been using this for several years (along with Dorian Gray Serum) and it's completely changed the texture and tone of my skin. Just a couple drops goes a long way. I love this stuff!! Thank you Sabbatical Beauty!!

It's blue, which is interesting. It smells mysteriously good. It makes my skin feel incredible. I was skeptical about trying Wise Old Crone Facial Oil, but it is every bit as luxurious and enriching as advertised. I have noted clearer skin, more even skin tone, reduced wrinkles/fine lines and stroke-able softness. I love it!

I was heartbroken when I came to the end of my stock of discontinued Dorian Gray Beauty Oil. I LOVED it so. But ai asked what could replace it in my routine and Wise Old Crone was recommended. And I am So glad it was. I like the results even better than DGBO! My face has less hormonal acne, less visible pours, and is much suppler and springy to the touch. This stuff is just wonderful. Cannot recommend it enough.

I use this before bed. My skin feels velvety as soon as I apply, and still feels that way in the morning. I've noticed a reduction in fine lines and a bouncier texture. And the smell! It's bewitching.
This oil is a go to for me. My skin feels so balanced, nourished, and younger after using. After using for a while the scent just makes me feel calm and appreciative.
