Maskwiomin - The Power of Birch Bark

Maskwiomin (pronounced: ma•skwi•omin) is a traditional Mi’kmaq skincare remedy based on the natural power of birch. Birch bark (maskwi in Mi’kmaw language) is carefully processed in a campfire method to obtain a powerful and concentrated oily extract (omin means oil in Mi’kmaw language). The birch bark extract has excellent natural properties for sensitive skin and other skin conditions to improve the skin. People using maskwiomin described their skin feeling much better and sometimes in 24 h. Maskwiomin products are only used for external uses.
