As Marijuana is becoming legal, more and more companies are investing in its possible usage in different products. Muri Lelu’s has recently launched an Indica based face oil, which has several benefits.
Effects Of The Oil
The oil infused with Marijuana is considerably potent. It has a pleasant aromatherapeutic effect. This results in a good and warm sleep.
Previously, Lelu planned to launch the brand with beauty products that contained THC ( the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana). However, due to legal problems around distribution, the idea was postponed.
She stated that they do not think of it as a CBD brand. Rather they view it as a cannabis brand. However, it is to note that this oil won’t make anyone high even if it contains THC.
Design Of The Bottle
One of the noteworthy feature of the oil is its sophisticated, glass bottle. The brand’s name is elegantly carved on the bottle in white modernist typeface. It stands separately from the hippie dippie cliches that’s likely to overcrowd the racks of hemps and cannabis beauty products.
However, its strong and intoxicating smell is no doubt one of it’s best features. The co-founder of the recently launched brand, who goes by the pseudonym Muri Lelu stated that he wanted to smell it like a fresh flower rather than like lavender or rose water. And by flower he meant bud, weed.
It was named Mauvaise Herbe after the French for weed. This night oil was made with the bedtime ritual for cannabis lovers in mind. It provides comfort to the skin along with gently calming it. Moreover, it contains all the antioxidant and anti inflammatory goodness such as cannabinoids, flavonoids, fatty acids.
In addition to this, it also contains a few more bioactive extracts to give better results. These extracts include jojoba oil, rosehip oil, and licorice extract ( a natural skin brightening agent).
However it still consists of a reminiscent smell- tangy and earthy along with a sweet sensation. Hence, this makes Indica oil a sort of stress-relieving oil for its users.
Founders Of The Brand
The founders of this brand are all women and residents of America. However, their homelands are France, Egypt, and Belize.
At the present time, they do not want a separate recognition. Particularly in order to both maintain the power of the collective and achieve a bit of allure.
Lelu was a mother of three children and belonged to Brooklyn. She was an expert in judging the taste of cannabis. In the beginning when she started working with the citizens of California, she was walking around with a bottle of oil. That oil was made from pure marijuana.
She visited her friend Sarah (a partner in this brand) and showed her that bottle of oil. Sarah stated that Lelu must not have something whose smell is similar to bong water (which does not contain THC because THC is insoluble in water). Moreover, people would avoid applying it to their face.
Consequently, Lelu and her unit didn’t use the plant extracts itself. Instead, they aimed to replicate the molecules that make up its fragrance, or like a terpene profile. They further took help from a perfumer in the South of France.
As a result, the alchemy includes notes of black pepper, nutmeg, and clary sage, as well as cypress and petitgrain (an extract obtained from bitter orange trees that genrally has a herbaceous smell).
New Muri Lelu skincare products are currently in progress. This includes a Sativa serum that’s a hydrating pick-me-up to be applied in the morning. It might be launched this summer.
Unlike Indica, that has soothing and relaxing characteristics, Sativa is known to have stimulating properties. It’s clearly shown in the way the serum smells-piney, citrusy and bright.
According to Lelu: “Their mission is to maintain the integrity of the plant from the seed up. Really at its heart, cannabis is a flowering plant. I just want to capture that inside a bottle.”
