High in calendulin, carotene, waxes, tannins, phosphorous and vitamins A and C, a good wound healer and works well in treating scarred, damaged and irritated skin.
Organic St. John's Wort - A warming and relaxing rich oil with antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, ideal to take on holiday for the treatment of first degree burns, sunburn, cuts, scrapes, bruises, boils, minor skin irritations and inflammations, eczema, rheumatic and muscular aches and pains associated with the nervous system. Softening for dry and mature skin. Excellent for sensitive skin, easily irritated skin and infected acne or spots. Great for baby for calming nappy rashes, sensitive or inflamed skin.
Organic Sunflower Oil - Used here for the macerated Calendula. High in linoleic acid (Omega 6 essential fatty acid) it spreads easily and is absorbed relatively quickly by the skin. Good for all skin types but especially to help reduce open pores.
Organic Evening Primrose Oil - Exceptionally high content of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), a substance the body needs to create prostaglandins. Deficiencies in prostaglandins will cause dryness, loss of suppleness and wrinkling. The skin will age more quickly and be less tolerant to sunlight and any damage to the skin will take longer to heal. Penetrates down and into the skin, making it softer and less prone to eczema and acne. It has a moisture-retaining effect, prevents drying of the skin, increases the cells’ ability to absorb oxygen and to withstand disease.
Organic Rosehip Oil - The only vegetable oil which contains natural tretinoin, the acid form of vitamin A also known as all-trans-retinoic acid or ATRA. Grown in Chile but processed in the UK, the processing of which is approved by The Soil Association. For skin infections such as acne, pimples and boils. Also useful in the repair of damaged skin tissue caused by scalds, burns, varicose veins and skin over-exposed to sunlight, and for treating oily skin, sensitive skin, and reducing or healing fine lines around the eyes, wrinkles and scars. Rosehip is amongst the best vegetable oil source of Omega 3 and is also a good source of Omega 6, both essential fatty acids collectively known as Vitamin F, involved in cellular membrane and tissue regeneration and normalising skin with large pores.
Organic Apricot Kernel Oil - An excellent lubricant for massage helping to spread all ingredients softly. Gentle enough for baby and itchy skin. Softens skin and wound crusts.
Natural Vitamin E - Alpha, beta, gamma and delta tocopherols which are 100% natural. Vitamin E is a classic antioxidant, which protects against the destruction of the connective tissue caused by free radicals. Non-GMO.
Organic Chamomile CO2 Extract - Gives a fresh, more typical Chamomile aroma than the steam distillate. Well known for its calming properties. Mixed with Organic Jojoba Oil - to make the Chamomile CO2 pourable. High in Omegas 7 & 9.
Vitamin A - Used in products for dry and mature skin and skin infections. Nourishes and counteracts inflammation, protecting cell membranes and other structures within the cells from the damage caused by free radicals helping to prevent skin disorders.
Organic Essential Oil of Lavender - Angustifolia variety, flowers from France harvested at high altitudes. When lavender is grown at over 1400 meters, the plant produces more esters. If the oil is also distilled at high altitude, there is a lower air pressure so a lower temperature can be used & therefore more of the very volatile chemicals come through from the plant to the oil. It is more than worth all the effort as this is a superb oil.
The list of properties for lavender is one of the longest of all the aromatherapy oils. Here it is used for its calming affect & it seems to work best in small amounts.
Organic Essential Oil of Bergamot - Uplifts the spirits, helps lift anxiety, minor stress & depression and just smells great!
Organic Rosemary Antioxidant - Rosemary Extract is one of the new generation Antioxidants. The active components have been extracted using supercritical CO2.
