Olive & June X Earth Tu Face Beauty Teas Have Arrived!

July 11, 2018

We’ve got big news! We just released our new collaboration beauty teas with ultra-chic southern California nail salon, Olive & June, marking our first foray into internal beauty products. The two delicious flavors are packed with nutritional herbs like horsetail greenery and nettle leaf to strengthen hair and nails. Packaged in beautiful (and 100% recyclable!) pastel paperboard tubes, these teas are the kind of thing you want to display in your kitchen or on your desk at work.

The two flavors, rosey matcha and minty lavender, are truly pretty inside and out. When formulating the blends in our apothecary, we wanted to highlight flower petals and medicinal herbs to create an experience that feels lush and brings with it the best tastes and aromas that an organic garden has to offer. We also wanted to make sure that every ingredient had a real reason for being there so we only used ingredients that are truly medicinal for the hair + nails + skin.

Curious about the benefits of each ingredient? See below for the breakdown as well as some beautiful photos of the finished product! Wondering where you can sample these creations? Stroll into any of the three Olive & June locations in so-cal (Pasadena, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica) to get a fab mani-pedi and get your beauty tea on in the meantime.
