Now-a-days essential oils are all the rage, but did you know that they have actually been around for centuries? They have been used in alternative health remedies and skin formulations thanks to their powerful nutrient content.
Essential oils are plant oils, highly concentrated and derived from the roots, leaves, flowers and stems of different plants. Each essential oil is 100% unique and provides the skin with some wonderful benefits, depending on your oil of choice.
We adore our essential oils and have spent so much time putting together blends that will target your specific skin concerns and benefit your very unique and specific skin type or dosha. Our oils are all organic, meaning the plants were grown without the use of pesticides, because your skin and your health deserve the very best!
In this article, we’ll let you in on 7 of the key oils used in our products, as well as tell you just why they are so wonderful for your skin!
