Jojoba oil is very similar to the sebum (oil) produced naturally by the skin and is an excellent base oil for all skin types. Besides having anti-inflammatory properties, Jojoba oil is an anti-oxidant which protects against radicals and prevents breaking down of collagen. Argan oil helps with the production of collagen and sebum. Hemp seed oil complements as a source of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids. This base oil blend is specifically designed to help the skin regenerate itself.
The Healing Blend is used to aromatise this face oil. All essential oils are wonderful for maturing skin: Lemon essential oil (anti-oxidant, astringent, lessens pigmentation); Frankincense essential oil (skin tone and elasticity, astringent, skin cell regeneration), Rosemary essential oil (anti-inflammatory, skin tone, helps circulation), and Clary sage essential oil (controls sebum production, shine and radiance, astringent).
Apply a few drops and massage on damp/wet skin.
If using additional products, the correct order should be: clean face; toner; serum; moisturiser (humectant); face oil; eye cream; make up; sunscreen. Moisturisers may also be applied directly after the face oil.
Face oils should not be applied before long sun exposure or tanning.
Black cumin seed oil is particularly powerful and one of our favourite specialised carrier oils. It improves radiance and elasticity, unclogs the skin’s pores. Black cumin seed, Sweet almond and Argan oils all help reduce wrinkles and the effects of sun-damage. Safflower and pumpkin seed oils are sources of essential fatty acids to complement the nutrients and minerals provided by the various oils in this well-thought blend.
The Cleansing Blend is used to aromatise this face oil. It contains essential oils of: Lavender (anti-inflammatory, detoxifies and calms); Patchouli (antioxidant, skin cell regeneration); Clary sage (controls sebum production, improves glow and radiance, astringent); and Black pepper (improves circulation, helps skin heal from blemishes and bruises, boosts collagen production, unclogs pores). The smell is wonderful for a calm sleep.
Apply after washing your face. Leave the skin damp/wet – you may either tap gently with a towel or not dry at all. Apply a few drops of the blend and massage on damp/wet skin.
This blend in particular should not be applied before long sun exposure or tanning.
