This is an attempt to revisit and supercharge an old product with some radical feminist energy. The contents are my Sleeping Beauty Oil --one of my 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 I made Sleeping Beauty, I wasn't aware of the rape culture origins of the fairytale.

So when deciding to bring back the formulation but charged with Lapis Lazuli this time--both in the rollerball and in the bottle, I decided to change the name to Wise Old Crone. Especially with the addition of lapis. Crystal healers say lapis is a stone of inner truth, self-awareness and acceptance of that knowledge, dignity in friendship and social interaction. And here you have the same formulation but charged with lapis both in the bottle and as a rollerball. A physical embodiment of wisdom as beauty.

So good!

I am loving WOC- it’s a part of my evening routine and I have noticed fewer wrinkles and decreased redness. I love everything from the packaging to the lapis lazuli rollerball to the amazing product. The smell is pungent but I find it relaxing. Will definitely be ordering more!

My go-to-oil for most nights

This replaces the original Sleeping Beauty Oil that I am using on most nights. While it works as great as its predecessor and I love the lapis lazuli roller and chips, i sort of miss the old smell which was a very soothing, calming herbal aroma (although some said the smell was too strong but i had loved it much).

You'd Be Wise to Use This!

Lately, I've been using the Rose Quartz Healing oil every morning and the Wise Old Crone oil at night -- every. single. night. Fine lines around my eyes and mouth have noticeably lessened, and the ritual of using the crystal roller to increase absorption is sooooooo soothing. I like the lapis roller very much; visually, it's beautiful. The scent is forest-like and herbal, to my senses very pleasant. While I love the tinkle of the crystals inside the vial, I wish there were fewer so that I could have more oil! This has fast become a favorite.

Fanciness in a roller

I want to explain that I only knocked a star off only because of the blue tansy smell. The results were definitely 5 star but for me personally, I could not get used to the blue tansy smell on its own. I always used this layered with Amethyst Snow Sleeping Pack so the lavender smell would mask the blue tansy. With that being said, I do love the rest of the product. The roller is so so fancy - I love the color of the lapis in the roller and the roller itself being lapis is about the fanciest thing ever. It's also a very good product for 'grounding' because of the anti-inflammatory ingredients and lapis lazuli stones. This also helped with my lupus flareup inflammation. Mostly used for PM because I tend to layer more products for PM than AM.

The QUEEN of the collection

HOLY COW I did not think I'd love this as much as I do! The Lapis Lazuli roller really seals the deal here, bringing to light the luxurious nature of this oil. I use it after cleansing and before bed, and it works with my skin in a way that doesn't make the oil production worse. I enjoy the scent, and I've pretty much conditioned my body to relate this scent to sleep! You deserve this investment in your skin, and I promise you'll feel the wisdom and truth that radiates from the rollerball and the oil. Your skin will do more than thank you, you'll celebrate each other!
