Macadamia oil prices have very nearly tripled over the last year. We have now run out of stock and in view of this price Increase, we have decided not to restock it for a while, waiting to see what the market has in store.
Macadamia was an ingredient in some of our vegetable blends. We have now reformulated them, taking this opportunity to improve the blend by adding more active ingredients.
The blends we have re-formulated are for these specific skin types:
DRY SKIN - Avocado, argan, apricot, calendula, evening primrose, jojoba & sunflower
MATURE SKIN - Borage, camelia (green tea), jojoba, rosehip, pomegranate & sunflower
FACIAL OIL - apricot, argan, avocado, carrot macerated in sunflower, jojoba & sesame
They make an ideal speciality oil to be used as part of a therapeutic massage to apply topically on areas of the body that specifically need it.
They also make an ideal body moisturiser to nourish, plump and protect your skin on a daily basis. Using pure oils, which most of us see as leaving us feeling greasy and uncomfortable for the rest of the day, is a concept that is not currently recognised, including by myself,... that is before i started formulating and using these blends for my own benefit. A body oil formulated with high quality ingredients will not leave the skin greasy and here is the reason why:
The skin is made of 3 layers: The epidermis is in contact with the environment. It is made of layers of dead or dying cells separated with layers of lipids. Its role is to protect and retain the level of moisture contained in the deeper layer of the skin. The dermis is a mixture of fibre, collagen which retains the moisture and elastin. It contributes to the plumpness, smoothness and elasticity of the skin. This layer will dehydrate if the lipid barrier is poor or damaged, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles.
Cold-pressed and unrefined vegetable oils offer the right solutions as they are made-up of chains of fatty-acids similar to those contained in the top layer of the skin.
Our body blends come unscented. 1 to 2% essential oils can be added if desired. Pour a small amount in the palm of the hand, massage well into the skin. A tingling sensation will develop as the oil sinks in and is being absorbed. Ideally wait 10 to 15 mns for the process to be complete before getting dressed.
We have a new selection of oils, blends and accessories
