Apricot Kernel and Jojoba Cleansing Serum
We will always, always recommend a cleansing serum to cleanse your face. We have been using this now for nearly year and can thoroughly recommend it as a ‘lovely product’.
The serum removes make up in such a gentle way and can take off waterproof mascara.
Serums contain fewer fillers, thickeners and lubricating agents so have smaller particles to penetrate the skin on a cellular level. They are better for oily skin as they do not sit on the skin and have smaller molecules so more easily absorbed. Serums prevent free radical damage and inhibit oxidation.
The Green Healing Apricot kernel and jojoba cleansing serum is a wonderful cleanser but it is also lovely as a moisturiser too. Simply put a little onto the end of your fingers and massage into your face as the last step in your skin care routine.
We have deliberately not added essential oils so is lovely to use around the eyes especially at Hay fever time and is simply a pure mix of Safflower, Hemp, Apricot kernel and Jojoba oils. I get very sore, itchy eyes so am perfect for testing a new cleansing product as I will react to anything! I will only use a serum that not only doesn’t irritate but also helps to reduce sensitivity as well. I expect my cleanser to be soothing and calming as well as working effectively as a cleanser
The active ingredients in the Green Healing cleansing serum seem to penetrate better when skin is clean warm and moist so we have put together some suggestions for you to obtain the maximum benefit from this wonderful natural cleansing serum.
Washing the face with oil
- Wet the face with warm water
- Apply oil
- soak and squeeze a cloth in hot water
- Place on face to allow to sink in to a deeper level
- Wipe off excess oil
- Splash with cold water to close pores
- Apply Rosewater and Frankincense Botanical Skin Tonic
Rosewater and Frankincense Botanical Skin Tonic
Simply our hydrosol of Rose essential oil, this tonic is simply pure rosewater with the essential oils of Rose, Frankincense and lavender. No additives, fillers, preservatives, emulsifiers- nothing but pure natural goodness. It has to be tried to be believed as it can help tighten the pores and soften the skin but also smells just amazing!
We often find that clients choose the Rosewater as their tonic of choice regardless of skin type because the smell is so appealing and also clients enjoy the mildly astringent properties of rosewater. Rosewater has been used for centuries as a toner to tighten the pores, reduce inflammation and soften the skin.
It is lovely to soak a muslin cloth in the botanical tonic and place this over your face in a dimly lit room and just imbibe the essential oils whilst the tonic tones and soothes your skin
Rose and Frankincense Restoring Night Balm
As we have so many customers who love to use a balm at night time we wanted to make a vegan alternative. We discovered the Candelilla wax and we hope you’ll agree that it is lovely. Using a balm at bedtime just seems really soothing and this Candelilla wax is soft and soaks in beautifully.
We opted for our newly discovered combination of Hemp oil, Apricot Kernel oil and Safflower oil then added our reliable Organic Sunflower oil as we find it indispensable for moisture retaining. Then we decided that you can’t actually improve on our unbeatable blend of Rose, Frankincense and lavender essential oils as they are supportive, deeply healing and wonderful for restoring the skin.
Cotton seed and Frankincense Protecting Day cream
We thought this new cream we had created would be beautiful for use as a day cream for the face.
We then set to ‘work’ choosing the lightest, gentlest oils for our new and very special day cream.
We knew we had to use our trusted Jojoba oil as it is so close in composition to our skin’s own sebum. It offers as little challenge as possible whilst being a beautiful moisturiser. Cotton seed oil is new to us and also moisturises with out clogging the pores as it is rich in Linoleic acid. Of course, we have had excellent results over the years with the use of comfrey oil in our day and night creams as it is so repairing and restoring. In this blend we now have a highly moisturising, very light soothing and nutritive cream that soaks in beautifully.
The Zinc oxide acts as a physical barrier to protect against the sun as well as being soothing and helps to reduce redness and irritation.
We have had such wonderful feedback over the years from the blend in the Organic Mature skin care collection. We love our combination of Rose, Frankincense and lavender so much we didn’t feel we could improve on it both for emotional support and for the restoring effect it has on the skin.
We hope you agree and would LOVE! to hear your feedback.
