On the skin: After cleansing and before bed, apply drops of Astrum to the palm of your hand and use your fingertips to massage into the face - around the eyes, smile lines, and along the hairline. Allow a minute to absorb, and follow with a layer of Aurora. For better absorption, use Aurora on slightly damp skin.
On the scalp: use Astrum as a treatment for dry scalp and hair - apply drops directly to the scalp, massage your hair at the roots, and then brush your hair from root to tip.

Crispin Clarke heralds from a career in community mental health and consumer-facing enterprise digital health. As an experienced healthcare provider, yoga teacher, and lifelong environmentalist, he became very interested in the alchemical tradition as a complementary source of potent and sustainable remedies for holistic wellness. After the Covid-19 shutdown, he first applied the precursor of Nick's Aurora balm to the chronic minor wounds on his waistline from wearing an insulin pump due to his Type 1 diabetes--and he was amazed to notice rapid improvements in his skin's healing, thus beginning his involvement with alchemical skincare. He holds a B.A. in Sociology & Anthropology from Swarthmore College, PA.
