infused oil balm concentrate

In a nod to our ancestors, this oil balm is a tribute to the way balms used to be made - and should still be made. We start with dynamic dried herbs, flowers and mushrooms, and steep them in our blend of warm organic oils for several days. This allows the plant properties to deeply infuse into the oils. Next, we melt down the wax of mimosa and jasmine flowers and infuse them into our luxurious oil. The result is an incredibly potent and soothing oil balm that smells absolutely divine.

The infused oil balm concentrate has been crafted to:

• intensely hydrate dry and dehydrated skin
• diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• heal and relieve irritation or redness
• support overall skin health promote a radiant glow

* Due to handcrafted construction, all vessels will have unique striations and color patterns.

Affectionately referred to as “the mushroom” in our hotshop, this lime green vessel was designed to look like some of its ingredients. Its color was inspired by plantains and hempseed oil, while its upside-down mushroom shape was inspired by chaga and reishi mushrooms. 


This balm is suitable for all skin types.


Using a dime size dollop, massage oil balm into damp or dry face and neck.

*balm can also be used on lips, elbows, and anywhere on the body that needs extra love.

Incredibly high in Vitamin A, rosehip oil moisturizes as it regenerates the skin and works to increase collagen production.

The stress-soothing flower chamomile has many skin benefits. With its high amount of antioxidants and anti-microbial properties, chamomile can help aid with discoloration and promote youthful skin.

When we say all of our products are double sized, we mean that we took the market average size for each type of product and simply doubled it. The average size for a face balm was 1.6oz, so we made ours 3.3oz. This means you can use the products for twice as long and repurchase half as often!

If your balm gets too warm and melts, simply place it in your refrigerator or a cool place until it resolidifies.

Despite being free from essential oils, this oil balm is infused with jasmine and mimosa floral wax which gives it a heavenly light floral scent.

No! The infused oil balm concentrate is highly moisturizing and should be used as the last step in your skincare routine.

We are proud that we do not use synthetic or unnecessary dyes at Scorpion and Toad. This balm is green due to the inclusion of hempseed oil, plantains, and mimosa floral wax. 

Yes! Because oil breaks up oil on the skin, this is a suitable moisturizer for those with oily or acne prone skin.

Magic in a Glass Mushroom!

I'm a bit of a skincare junkie. I've tried sooo many products, in search of my unicorn. Well, I can safely say my search is over! My face LOVES it more than anything I've tried thus far, including high-end brands. I feel comforted knowing the ingredients are of the best caliber, and I can pronounce them! Not only do I love what this company stands for and the ritual and love they put into their formulas, the vessels are what initially drew me in! I'm a sucker for a beautiful and unique presentation and this is just gorgeous! Thank you for these amazing products <3

Alright, gorgeous beings, let's talk about this absolute stunner of a face balm – it arrives in a branded wood box and then the handblown mushroom jar that's basically a piece of art for your vanity. But let's get to the real deal: this balm is like an elixir for wrinkles and dryness. I'm talking about skin so smooth and hydrated, you'll practically radiate light.

I'd been using this on my face and really liked it, but it really does wonders for my neck. The lines that I've had for years immediately look better when I put this on and it lasts all day. This unique product has become my secret weapon against dryness and wrinkles on my face and neck.
