The Benefits of Essential Oils

I know I tend to go on about Comfrey, yet there are also other ingredients that rock, and these are Essential Oils.

If I went into all the benefits of Essential Oils I might be here all day, there is quiet a few though.  Essential oils are not to be confused with perfumed oils, which just smell lovely – these super stars are made by almost capturing the pure essence of the plant and hence their magic.  This means they also capture the many many healing properties of the plants, which we can in turn benefit from by either using them through their aroma such as in aromatherapy or by using with a carrier oil/base directly on the skin itself.

These can easily be used everyday for a multitude of uses; If you have a trouble sleeping try lavender, nauseous try a bit of ginger,  in enhance your brain power and memory try rosemary, tea tree oil works a treat on athlete’s foot and grapefruit is uplifting and brings joy….

These oils have been used and highly valued for thousands of years, from Egyptians used Frankincense, cedar and myrrh as part of the mummification process for their ability to preserve and embalm. They were also used in Persia, Greece, India and China –  and that legacy carries on today in our uses of the oils, be it in products, perfumes, aromatherapy massages and air vaporisers.

Here are some of the benefits of just a few of the key Essential Oils I use;

“This is my first time using a body oil and I LOVE IT. It is a treat to the body and senses -- feels great on the skin and smells delicious. As it is important to know what I'm applying on my skin and then washing out into the environment, this body oil is made of natural ingredients and I appreciate that. I look forward to pampering my skin daily now after a shower. Thanks, Michelle”.

New Product. Eternal Serenity Face Oil Debuts

EternalSerenity005Wahoo!!! Eternal Serenity Face Oil finally makes its debut.  I’ve been using it for awhile and have to admit am completely loving it (I know I say this with all my products, and while it could be a sales pitch, it’s not!  If I test something and it’s not working, and I don’t love it – I make it again and certainly don’t keep using it or make it sell.  If I don’t love it then don’t expect anyone else to either – so I am both the critic and guinea pig of all testing :)).

While I was moving I ran out and didn’t have it with me for over a month and the difference was significant –  so glad to have settled in, finishing my first new batch and having my skin is back to its natural healthy glowing, soft self – which is why I am so thrilled to now have the opportunity to share it with you all.

It’s made up of the same  Comfrey Infused Blend that is also used in my other products, however the difference is in the additional oils which are just heaven for the skin;

Hemp oil is pure food for the skin, Regenerates and Rejuvenates the skin’s protective layer, thanks to its high levels of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, it has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an great natural emollient and moisturiser.

Argan oil is extremely rich in nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E.  It softens, hydrates, reducing wrinkles by restoring elasticity and has an anti-oxidant effect. On top of that it also helps to heal acne and reduce inflammation

Red Raspberry Seed oil is especially protective of the skin, shielding it from UV-B and UV-C rays as well as infrared. It is also anti-inflammatory due to high content of alpha linolenic acid and phytosterols therefore helpful for eczema and psoriasis and has anti-ageing benefits thanks to it’s anti-oxidant properties.

And the essential oils used are also particularly great for the skin in how the tone, embalm, even out the skin tone, calm and EternalSerenity006smooth out the skin too.  Our skin is our first contact point to the world, it’s important what we put on it, and these ingredients are pure nutrients for the skin.
