I love so many things about Eminence Organic Skin Care, and not just the product. Since their inception in 1958, they have been using sustainable farming and green practices to create natural, organic and Biodynamic® products. They are constantly looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. With the use of wind energy and solar power energy in the making of their products and plant a tree for every product sold. At Bodyworks we’re already responsible for 250 trees being planted! All Eminence product boxes are recyclable, made from Forest Stewardship Council certified material and printed with vegetable inks. Eminence uses natural ingredient as well as their partners and farms produce natural, organic and Biodynamic® fruits and vegetables. All products are handmade without severe heating or hydrogenating processes that can affect the nutritional content and potency of natural ingredients. Vitamins are captured in their all-natural fresh base, and seeds, pulps and peels impart regenerative and healing powers that only nature can produce. Stone Crop (also known as sedum) is a popular household and outdoor plant which, in the past, was traditionally used by herbalists to heal and brighten the look of skin. Scientific studies also confirm that the plant is rich in antioxidants that reduce signs of aging skin. We use many products from the Stone Crop Eminence Collection for its healing, hydrating, and hyperpigmentation benefits. This leads me to ask, what do you normally do with your product jars when they're empty? Toss it in the trash I imagine. Here’s a great way to use your empty Eminence product jars and add some cute decor to your home or office, and it’s also a green way of reusing your jars. You don’t need a “green thumb” to grow these! GROW YOUR OWN STONE CROP PLANT IN AN EMINENCE JAR Materials Needed:
1 or 2 Stone Crop Leaves
Eminence Jar (Either an 8oz or 2oz)
Rocks or Gravel
Grab a fallen leaf or carefully pluck a leaf from a stone crop plant. Make sure that the bud is dry and clean—set aside.
Clean out your Éminence jar of any residual product and leave to dry.
Once dried, add rocks or gravel to the bottom of your jar to ensure proper drainage. One layer should do it
Cover the rocks with soil—making sure that it is loose and aerated. This is important for when the stone crop leaf begins to root.
Around the mouth of the jar, wind some twine and tie it into a bow for a rustic touch!
Lay your stone crop leaves on top of the soil—there’s no need to bury the leaves in the soil.
Lightly water the soil near the end of the stone crop leaf bud. Do not overwater—let the soil dry up before watering again.
Enjoy your new stone crop plant! Be Well, Cindy Owner/Founder/Licensed Massage Therapist
