db Taos, formerly Desert Blends of Taos, is the same quality product. We added more beneficial and nourishing seed extracts and roots to promote healthy skin and hair.
Two sages bring substance – featuring the desert sage packed with vitamins and minerals that help to promote hair growth and vibrancy; the clary sage has antioxidants to reverse the signs of ageing; protects against the assault of free radicals and aids in daily cell regeneration, keeping your skin and hair nourished and glowing.
The root of the matter is that the two sages protect against free radicals. What exactly is free radicals? Free radicals are toxic byproducts of oxygen metabolism that can cause significant damage to living cells and tissues in a process called “oxidative stress.” The vitamins and minerals the body uses to counteract oxidative stress are called antioxidants.
Free radicals may include fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides, air pollutants, and many more. Free radicals can cause damage to parts of cells such as proteins, DNA, and cell membranes by stealing their electrons through a process called oxidation and the root cause of aging.
Antioxidants are nutrients that donate electrons to free radicals. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and assist in returning your body to a balanced state. Antioxidants are found in our two sages and our seven seeds (and roots) organic plant extracts and oils that help to restore, revitalize, moisturize skin; nourish the body; and promotes balance pH levels.
Although there are several enzyme systems within the body that scavenge free radicals, the principle micronutrient (vitamin) antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Additionally, selenium, a trace metal that is required for proper function of one of the body’s antioxidant enzyme systems. We have carefully selected our botanical extracts, packed with micronutrients based on the antioxidant enzyme systems to promote healthier glowing skin and anti-aging. The added benefit of using botanicals that have high Vitamin C content such as our: rosehip seed, evening primrose, calendula, licorice root, burdock root/seed, chamomile, and desert sage is that they also offer UV/UA protection from harmful sun damage. dB Taos why would you gamble on anything else?

A customer remarked on my Facebook page why Taos? I have spent many years wild gathering the botanicals in the high desert mountains of Taos NM. I have been inspired and in awe of its beauty and became the seed for my business. I wanted to bottle up the scent of the fresh sage and flora of the mesa after a summer rain.
Walking along the acequias, the water flowing fresh from the mountains that fed into age old citrus orchards and alfalfa fields that spanned the course of time well over 500 years. I discovered the native plants that grew together were a remedy for dry skin that resulted from the high dry climates. The rosehip seed, primrose seed, burdock seed, sage, licorice root, and burdock seed and roots and sunflowers were high in Vitamin C and antioxidants that nourish and repair skin and hair.
Nature has its intelligence. It is often the case that there is a remedy for every ailment within 10 feet. The botanicals offer minerals and vitamins that combat the dry elements. Particularly the sun. High in Vitamin C, the plants heal and protect from sun damage and harmful UA rays. I couldn’t come up with a better proprietary blend than from the offering of botanicals along the riparian. I believe that plants that grow in a matrix offer more healing power and life force.
Taos has a unique climate of sage desert mesas and mountain ranges that provide a floracopeia of the highest quality botanical treasures. I did in fact bottle the essence of Taos and its magic and healing properties. I have come to love Taos, it will always be my home.
