Lemon (Citrus limonum) – Organic

By Melody Hansen
on August 31, 2009

This is such a wonderful, fresh, clean essential oil, but did you know it is also a SOLVENT - as are other citrus essential oils. I use it to dissolve grease, dirt and grime - as well as cleaning the label glue off of recycled bottles. So - what I'm saying here is this is not something you want to put in your water every day as some companies recommend. Your liver will thank you if you don't. It makes a very good - and very healthy - addition to any of your cleaning products, use in a diffuser, and even add it to your massage oil or cream. It has so many benefits, BUT it is also a phototoxic oil, meaning that if you use this topically, don't go out into direct sunlight or a sunbed for 12 to 24 hours because it can cause a slight reaction to a severe burn. Dilutions are important. Essential oils are concentrated extracts from plant material - many times concentrated from that slice of lemon you put in your glass of ice tea. We only purchase and sell certified organic citrus oils. Why? Because citrus oils (most anyway) are not steam distilled as are other essential oils, but are cold-pressed from the RIND. Yes - and that is where the pesticides and herbicides are most concentrated.

Another thing to consider with citrus oils - they oxidize and this can alter fairly quickly the important chemistry of the particular essential oil. Which is why we buy only fresh citrus oils from our supplier. We keep all of our citrus oils refrigerated and suggest you do the same. All essential oils should be stored tightly closed, leave the top off only long enough to drop the oils into whatever you are diluting it with, and keep in dark glass containers. We ask that you not remove the safety dropper cap supplied and keep them out of reach of children. It's alway a good idea to write the date on the bottle that you have received and opened the essential oil in order to keep track of the age of the oil.

Carrot Seed (Daucus carota)

Carrot Seed Essential Oil

An easy do-it-yourself way to incorporate the antiwrinkle, cell-renewing properties of this essential oil is mix the following blend into any of your favorite unscented cream (our unscented hand & body cream would be good for this purpose.)

Add to 8 oz of cream or your favorite carrier oil. See our carrier oil benefits page to help you decide which one to use for your skin type.

5 drops Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) essential oil
5 drops Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) essential oil
5 drops Carrot Seed (Daucus carota) essential oil
5 drops Rosemary, ct Verbenone (Rosmarinus officinalis)
5 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
5 drops Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea)

Safety or Cautions: Carrot seed essential oil is considered to be non-toxic, and non skin-sensitizing. As with all oils, this oil must be diluted with a carrier prior to use. Please check the link to the individual essential oils noted in the recipe for safety/usage information. See our Essential Oil Database for more information.

IMPORTANT: All of our products are for external use only.

We also suggest you have a good working knowledge of the use of essential oils or consult with an aromatherapy professional prior to use. In addition, Essential Oils must be properly diluted before use in order to avoid any damages to property or adverse physical effects (including injury or bodily harm). Please read our Disclaimer before using our products.

Organic Skin Renewal Intensive Facial Complex

New Intensive Cell-Renewing Facial Formula!

We are so excited about this new formula! We’ve added an incredible amount of anti-aging/antioxidant ingredients, all certified organic. We research our ingredients quite carefully to make sure what we're buying is without pesticides or other contaminants, plus we purchase from companies who are eco-friendly and fair trade. We also use the amazing benefits, that are well documented and well researched of green tea, rooibos tea and ginkgo. Our infusions are dark and concentrated and you will notice that this cream is very close to the same color as Seabuckthorn Berry, which is what gives it the orange color. If you have a company telling you they are putting any significant amounts of these ingredients in their cream and it is pure white – you are only getting a minimum amount of that ingredient. Acai extract – the real thing – is dark like the fruit and we use enough of it along with our other antioxidants to make our cream – well, cream colored! After the emulsion (that’s what making oil and water into a cream is called) cools enough, we add a significant amount of skin-healthy, anti-aging pure unadulterated essential oils – enough that you can get a slight hint of their fragrance. This is a pure, natural fragrance, not what you are probably used to in the synthetic fragrances so prevalent in high end products you find on the shelves today. The phthalates in these fragrances age your skin, cause allergies and make your skin break out. There are NO parabens in our creams – or any of our products – never, ever, ever. Read our blog about why that is.

I use this cream both in the morning and at bedtime, but I have (well...had) very dry skin. It has worked miracles on my skin but I suffered with rosacea until I began to develop my own creams. The emu oil is well known for its transdermal properties – it will penetrate deeper than other oils and carries with it the beneficial properties of the other ingredients in this intensive cream. Now my skin is clear enough that I don’t really have to use a makeup base. For some it will be enough just to put around those dry areas, such as eyes and laugh lines. It’s also a very good cream for hands that are work-worn and chapped. Apply gently and sparingly – a little goes a long way. You will love the natural, clean feel and fragrance of this cream – synthetic fragrances are not good for the sensitive facial skin and we refuse to use them in our facial products – we use only 100% natural essential oils for their therapeutic benefits rather than their aroma.

As with first using any new product, please do a small test on your arm first and perhaps on a small area of your face. We offer sample packs for those who want to try it out first.

Rooibos Calming Facial Serum

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

If you haven’t been reading about the absolutely amazing properties of Rooibos, take a look at our Rooibos benefits & properties page where we go into some detail. You will be seeing more of this extract in many of our formulas. Rooibos is a very effective anti-inflammatory & antioxidant and added to that is our usual DMAE & MSM. We include these two ingredients in most of our facial products because they have been proven to work consistently to tighten, firm and improve the health of your skin. I use this serum after washing my face while my skin is still warm and slightly moist. I like to gently rub it in using upward outward circles - this also increases circulation to your facial skin providing additional benefits. After this is absorbed, I then put on a dab of either the organic  Every Day Facial Cream or the organic Skin Intensive Renewal Cream.
