Materia Aromatica in October 2014
We have had a busy month here in our shop and offices. Websites orders have kept coming in steadily. Thank you to all for your repeat custom and your appreciation.
We have held our first information evening to introduce our skin care formulations. Another one is scheduled for the end of October and will be about 'Essential oils and Home living.' More details to follow.
As always, please browse our 'Special Offers' section which will end at the end of October 2014
Foot & Leg Balm - 100 % organic ingredients
Formulated and designed by us, our foot balm is made with our oils and is 100% organic. It is a light balm which goes a long way. Very little is needed indeed, half a peanut size will melt rapidly on contact with the skin and will be more than sufficient to massage and nourish foot and lower leg.
It will soften hard skin that tend to develop on the feet, soothe cracks that can become particularly sore.
Massage the lower leg in upwards motions to promote blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. Our balm does not contain beeswax which is comedogenic (with a tendency to block pores). It is formulated with light butters and oils which will leave the skin smooth and nourished with no greasy discomfort.
Fragranced with a refreshing and minty blend of essential oils.
Using Vegetable Oils as basis for formulating a truly natural skin care range
We are often faced with comments such as: 'Oils will make my skin greasy, oily and shiny !' If it does, you will have either used the wrong type of base oil or put too much of it on your skin. Vegetable oils are made of the same molecules and substances that are already present in the skin. Each oil has a different texture and therapeutic application. If used and applied appropriately, they are all your skin need. They will leave it clean, soft, nourished and rejuvenated.
By the end of this article (please follow link) that we have published on our website, we hope that we will have dissipated the worries and misconceptions built around vegetable oils and made you an addict of using skincare formulated with possibly the simplest but definitely the best ingredients that your skin needs.
