What is a Decoction?

  • Concentrated Extraction: A process where raw materials, like herbs or seeds, are boiled in water until the liquid is reduced by half, concentrating the beneficial compounds.
  • Natural Goodness: Utilizes natural ingredients like flax seeds, which release mucilage—a thick, gel-like substance—when simmered, enriching the decoction with soothing properties.

Benefits of Decoctions for Skin and Hair:

  • Soothing: Decoctions, particularly those made from mucilage-rich seeds, can help calm irritated or inflamed skin and scalp, reducing redness and providing relief.
  • Softening: The concentrated substances in decoctions, like mucilage, can help soften the skin and hair, making them feel smooth and tender to the touch.
  • Conditioning: For hair, a decoction can act as a natural conditioner, improving texture and adding a silky sheen, making tangles and knots easier to manage.
