Whenever my mom and I travel back home to the Philippines, she always looks for mangosteen. Of course, depending on the season, she either gets to enjoy the fruits or she has to wait until the next time we return. Luckily on our last trip, we were able to catch the tail end of its seasonality, much to my mom's delight.
Mangosteen (Garcinia Mangostana) is an exotic fruit native to Southeast Asia, and is primarily farmed in Mindanao, Philippines. Being difficult to grow makes this fruit a precious commodity when it comes into season.
Mangosteen is considered the queen of all fruits, with her crown of chartreuse green and maroon brown dappled petals.
It is sought after for its soft, delicious segments of white seeded sweetness that borders on a pleasurable sourness. Its husk (pericarp) is deep purple and burgundy red, which can stain your thumbs as you open it with your bare hands, ready to devour every piece of the fruit within it. The pericarp, rich in antioxidants, is also used to make tea.
Captured in this bottle is the essence of Spirit-- a container of Golden Light created in ritual with the intentions of restoring and elevating your energy.
Inspired by this queen of fruits, DIWA was created to capture the energy of mangosteen's regal beauty in synergy with other botanical allies to support your self-care rituals.
DIWA has fruity fragrance notes of guava, mangosteen, and grapefruit. It is a beautiful alchemy of moisturization, self care, and healing intentions.
The feel and smell of DIWA on your skin is reminiscent of lying on white soft-sand beach, enjoying the abundance the tropical island has to offer you-- a mental and spiritual getaway in these much needed times.
This luxurious face elixir uses mangosteen harvested from certified organic farms in Midsayap, Mindanao. It also contains healing and soothing oils of rosehip seed, jojoba, and vitamins C & E for skin regeneration. High in antioxidants, DIWA minimizes signs of aging, protects against environmental damage and face mask irritation, reduces skin inflammation, and is perfect for all skin types.
SUGGESTED USE: DIWA is perfect as an overnight restorative and healing face oil. Massage in soft circles with your ring finger around your face. Breathe in deeply as you gently massage your face.
