I recently got to visit Quebec City, which was even more dreamy than I believed it would be. Like, look up real estate listings with heart eyes because I need to live here, dreamy.
Besides enjoying the breathtaking views and collaborative small business vibe, I was excited to learn about the Boreal food movement which gives variety to Quebecois menu offerings, depending on the cycle of the seasons. It’s an interesting blend of Quebec culinary traditions mixed with international influences. And we indulged in it all!
Mr. FU and I booked a food tour in the artsy St. Roch neighborhood and I was super pumped when Paul, our dope tour guide, introduced a local drink made from….SEA BUCKTHORN at our first stop! We learned that the juicy fruit drink lives in the same world as Kombucha, though much tastier, in my opinion. I’m not saying it’s an effective hang over cure, but just a shot of it gave me some much-needed pep in my step. With 30x more vitamin C than in an orange, it’s no wonder why.
I love the concept of an ingredient being so beneficial that it can be absorbed both externally AND internally with beautiful results. Chefs use sea buckthorn for its unique citrus flavor. Or dare I say, flavour? Oui! As a bonus, ingesting sea buckthorn delivers not only the mega dose of vitamin C, but boasts Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9, plus vitamins A, B1 and B2, E and K.
We use sea buckthorn oil to nourish in a different way. Our Liquid Gold Phytofinishing Oil delivers that big hit of anti-aging antioxidants to feed your skin. Sea buckthorn is known for its cell regenerative, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and their ability to protect and nourish the skin while improving skin texture and tone.
I mean, did YOU realize that sea buckthorn oils are well known for their healing properties and are particularly effective in the treatment of skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis? Now you know. And, knowing is half the battle.
We love how sea buckthorn amplifies the magic of Liquid Gold and your glow. Use Liquid Gold as your final step in your skin care ritual. If you haven’t already, try our Radiant Facial Set for a simplified beauty ritual for unicorns on the go!
