The Scent Apothecary

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!
