HEALING BALMS (POMADAS) Malaya Organics X La Qvinta Essentia
Crafted by Rafael Patiño Góez - a medicine man from Colombia - these magical healing balms have been a part of Katya’s self-care ritual for over two decades.
Rafa, the incredible curandero who crafts these potions, heals people from all over the world, and Katya was lucky enough to source a micro batch of his world famous healing balms, called POMADAS to share with our valued customers.
The Pomada formulas are a marriage of his incredible knowledge of native Colombian herbal medicine combined with ancient healing secrets from Indian and Egyptian traditions that focus on revitalizing skin and body. These magical Pomada formulas include organic botanicals from his shamanic garden, cold pressed, unrefined plant oils, sustainably sourced beeswax from local apiaries, and ethically sourced organic Ghee. The results are nothing less of astonishing!
The name of Rafa’s brand is Latin - La Qvinta Essentia - which means quintessence (the essence, the purest and most concentrated form). In alchemy it represents the “fifth essence” or the fifth element known as aether. This essence is believed to be the spiritual force permeating all things in nature. Some ancient traditions believed that if this essence could be isolated, it could cure all ailments.
