Skin Renewal - Intensive Facial Essential Oil Blend

Healthy Facial Skin Essential Oil Blend:

My research into which essential oils are best for skin health began many, many years ago. Actually, the health of my skin was very bad and I ventured into the wonderful world of essential oils because of that unsolved issue in my life. I found that essential oils are very small molecules and are easily absorbed deep into the layers of skin and can make changes to the cell structure while other ingredients can't. They are nature's little miracles in a bottle. I did further research into which oils would be best for a synergy of benefits. I knew that Cleopatra used them, I knew that the Bible told me that Esther used Myrrh for a year before being beautiful enough to go before the king, and I found out other amazing benefits that both literature and research has shown are beneficial to the health of skin. This blend is the result of that research. I've been told it smells very nice as well. This is a complex blend that has been well-researched. Below is a list of each oil used and why the oil was included for skin care and why we've found that this blend is particularly effective for skin health:

  • Myrrh - has been used for centuries for its cell regenerating properties, for scars, as an anti-inflammatory and instills calmness
  • Frankincense - excellent for decreasing scar tissue, tightens tissue, reduces fluid retention and puffiness, very skin nourishing
  • Lavender - THE classic skin regenerative oil, heals burns, calms skin irritations and has possible anti-tumoral properties
  • Patchouli - another classic skin rejuvenator to restore youthful skin vigor, moisturizing, useful for reducing scar tissue, dry chapped skin, acne or rosacea
  • Carrot Seed - used by many for its skin-healing properties, useful for relieving eczema, psoriasis and revive dull, tired skin
  • Geranium - anti-inflammatory properties, helpful against dermatitis, eczema or varicose veins. Studies have shown it to be highly antibacterial and antifungal (specifically MRSA and Candida)
  • Spikenard - especially good for relieving allergenic skin reactions, skin soothing and regenerative
  • Ylang-ylang – believed to be moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and can restore vitality to dull, lifeless skin
  • Benzoin – a lifting oil with wrinkle reducing properties, soothing to inflammatory conditions and is believed to improve skin’s elasticity. (Contains benzyl benzoate-see note below)**
  • Tea Tree – The classic oil for acne, antimicrobial and is very effective at eliminating common skin bacteria, believed to increase skin circulation
  • Black Pepper – known to increase local blood flow and thereby potentially increasing cellular oxygenation, highly anti-inflammatory, and some studies show anti-cancer properties. Studies also show that this oil is a potent free-radical scavenger.
  • Palmarosa – due to the high level of geraniol in this particular oil, it is believed to be anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and excellent for dry skin, wrinkles or lack-luster skin.
  • Clary Sage – believed to contribute to the overall health of skin cells, is a well-recognized hormone balancer and relieves tension that can exacerbate inflammatory processes.
  • Cedarwood, Virginia – especially good for acne, dry, or itchy skin, and said to tighten skin tissue. This oil is also a skin penetration enhancer – meaning that its use in this blend will increase the potential for absorption for the entire blend.

**Contrary to some other “authorities” safety concerns, according to Robert Tisserand, there is an extremely low risk of skin sensitization. We have also included this oil at a concentration well below levels that would cause this issue.

Spicey Muscle Oil - Warm, Soothing, Comforting

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

Aching muscles? Tried worn out creaking knees? Muscle or nerve pain? We have the natural and organic answer.

We infuse our own oils in small, temperature-controlled batches using certified organic herbs of arnica, calendula, chamomile and helichrysum in certified organic sunflower and olive oil. Contains a well-researched synergistic blend of warming, analgesic and muscle-relaxing essential oils.

Plai has long been used by Thai massage therapists for its soothing and anti inflammatory properties. Plai is of the same family as ginger but with different properties and more intense actions - both oils as well as the others in this blend are very effective.

I had a neroma removed several years ago and have had chronic pain since that time. My husband has been told by an orthopedic back specialist that his back is a mess due to 30+ years working as a contractor, and he should have surgery - again. We didn't want to do that or resort to pharmaceutical pain killers. So - as in all of our products - I began to do a lot of research into what natural remedy I could come up with. The spicey muscle rub is it! This very effective soothing rub is a researched blend of pure essential oils and organic herbal oils that have centuries of proof that they work for nerve, muscle and bone pain. We mixed all of the best ones in just the right percentages and even we were surprised that it works as well as it does.

We infuse our own Arnica oil because we wanted to make a more concentrated infusion, which is also why we do our own infusion of the other herbs used in this blend - we also save on costs and lessen our carbon foot print. This is an oil to take everywhere for those of us who have chronic aching muscles, nerves and bones. It sits on the bedside table on my side of the bed and in the middle of the night when that deep aching pain hits my left knee, I just reach over and rub this in and immediately the pain is gone. It is a powerful synergy including infused oils of the botanicals of arnica, chamomile, calendula and helichrysum – all well known for their anti-inflammatory properties. We added this blend of botanical powerhouses to Emu oil and Certified Organic Tamanu oil – both of which have been shown to be very effective pain relievers, plus they are extremely good transdermal carriers – meaning they carry all of these pain relieving properties down to where they actually do some good, they don’t just sit on top of your skin as do most of the products out there. To this we added an amazing blend of essential oils that have research-proven properties of analgesia (pain relieving) and anti-inflammatory properties. Of course – the botanicals are certified organic, the Emu oil is certified pure, and the carrier oils are certified organic. 4 oz bottle with dropper cap will last a long time.
