    • May 08, 2021 Essential oils - so much more then just nice scents! Part V
      Essential oils - so much more then just nice scents! Part V

      Its been a few weeks since I've shared my last post - been busy with Mother's Day Pamper Packs!

      To recap, in my last post, I shared about the qualities of two of my favourite base/carrier oils - Sweet Almond & Jojoba oils.  These two are used mostly in my product formulations.  In this segment, I will share about the qualities of  other oils which I use often too.  

       

      Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)

      Source : Virgin coconut oil obtained from fresh, mature coconut kernels 

      Skin types: Good for dry and dehydrated skin and mature skins as its very nourishing.  That's why this is used in my body butter formulations. 

      Qualities : nourishing, emollient, protective

      Common uses : for softening and smoothing, irritated skin, itching skin, sun damage, hair care

      Note :  For those with sensitivity to nuts, best to do a skin patch test.

       Argan Oil (Argania spinosa)

      Source : Kernels, produced in Morocco.  Contains Vitamin E, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids

      Skin types: Good for all face & body skin types including mature skin and  prematurely aged skin 

      Qualities : Antioxidant, reconstructing, softening, toning, regenerative and protective

      Common uses : for dry, flaking skin, scarring, sun damage, improving skin elasticity and in hair care

      In my next post, I will begin sharing about the qualities of each essential oil that is commonly used in many product formulations - and those in my own product formulations - my personal favourites!

      Many of us wonder why there is such a large price variance in the market when it comes to essential oils.  

      Its really simple - it comes down to several factors.
