My favorite part of Beldam Bruja Vanishing Cream and Night Serum
aside from it’s astounding and mysterious anti-aging properties…
is it’s name… A play on words
an old woman.
a malicious and ugly woman, especially an old one; a witch.
Translations of bruja

My second next favorite, aside from it’s astounding and mysterious ability to lighten and brighten my skin in just one overnight application…
Is it’s color… Some how a serum, made from comfrey, yarrow and calendula, that is such a deep, dark green color, moss on the trees of the deepest darkest most secretive magical forest would be envious…
manages to turn it’s self into the most subtle and gentle shade of antique white, that I’ve ever seen.
Both the serum and vanishing cream hold a natural, most subtle earthy fragrance, hints of the magical healing herbs inside, with a cool earthy depth. Something like the scent of summer giving way to autumn.
This one is made to vanish the old witches that lurk on the surface of aging skin. To *vanish* the damage of time and the harshness of Mother Nature’s elements.
Through gentle exfoliation, deep nourishment and magical healing, Beldam Bruja brightens and softens the deepest and darkest Beldams that lurk on the surface on our fair maiden skin.
Use this Vanishing Serum to disappear signs of age, stress and injury to your skin.
Beldam Bruja works quickly, penetrates deeply to moisturize and nourish dry, irritable and stressed out skin. Whether it’s wrinkles or teenage acne, vanishing serum provides soothing, chemical free relief to your skin.

Comfrey, also known as ‘Boneknit’ has the power to heal broken bones. Imagine what it will do for your skin.
Use on cuts and scrapes, rashes and chafe, insect bites and burns. Massage into strains, sprains and bruising.
Add to carrier oil, warm and massage into aching muscles and joints.
Most of all, use it on your beautiful face. This was my original intention when I created this oil blend.
Your beautiful face and mine. I wanted a goddess oil for my face. I wanted to make it with the most special and potent herbs that mother earth had to offer.
I found those potent healing plants and the sun helped me turn them into magic.
2 ounce cobalt bottle comes with a drop dispenser that measures a perfect finger full of healing oil. A little goes a long way!
Comfrey has an especially potent skin-healing agent, allantoin, which can be found widely in cosmetic preparations, especially those for sensitive skin. It aids wound repair, accelerates skin healing, and possesses anti-inflammatory activity. Allantoin is the subject of many patents, and is both derived from comfrey and synthesized in laboratories. Employed in shampoos, toothpastes, skin care lotions, anti-acne preparations and lipstick, allantoin is a staple compound in the cosmetic industry.
Other compounds in comfrey also demonstrate benefits when applied to skin. Additional compounds including caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid and rosmarinic acid help to protect the lipid linings of skin cells, reduce inflammation, and show anti-cancer activity. This may support the use of comfrey preparations for various skin cancers.
In human clinical studies, comfrey preparations have performed well. In one study, sufferers of acute ankle sprains experienced more rapid recovery with the application of a comfrey-based cream. The preparation reduced swelling, alleviated pain, and helped to improve joint mobility. In another study, comfrey cream showed value in reducing lower back pain and improving osteoarthritis in the knee.
And in yet another study, those who utilized a concentrated comfrey cream to treat skin abrasions experienced more rapid healing and recovery than those who did not.
Comfrey salve, balm or cream is on my must-have list for a well-stocked home medicine cabinet.
NOTE: Beldam Bruja oil contains Yarrow, which has high concentrations of Salicylic Acid. Salicylic acid causes photosensitivity and you should not go out into the sun for prolonged periods of time soon after application with out spf protection. Salicylic Acid produces an effect much like a Chemical peel. Do not use this product around the eye area, in large amounts or on a daily basis. This product is VERY concentrated DO NOT use more than ONE dropper full and DO spot test to protect against unknown allergies and skin sensitivity.

There is ample proof that that botanical medicines have been used for thousands of years, and it is reasonable to believe that they were also used by primitive man to survive diseases, and the rigors of aging.
None of these products have been evaluated by the FDA.
Many botanicals offered at Starfish Honey are recognized in the United States and foreign pharmacopias. Many of them have been discarded for stronger, more certain, synthetic drugs, or other reasons.
Modern science is now reevaluating many of the old time botanicals, and searching jungles and distant places to seek remedies from aboriginal races.
The future of human medicine may very well rest in the methods of our ancient ancestors.
