Essential Oils have been effectively used in beauty and body treatments for centuries. Face and body treatments that are made from 100% natural oils are different to run-of-the-mill commercial or synthetic products in that they contain no nasty chemicals, parabens, alcohol or artificial preservatives. Chemical based beauty products tend to disrupt the normal pH level of the skin while natural products function together to effectively balance the skin’s normal pH level.
Pure essential oils are non-invasive to the human body and they work holistically with the body’s natural responses to promote a process of detoxification, relaxation, healing and rejuvenation. This is possible because they are made up of tiny natural molecules that are able to penetrate the outer skin layer (epidermis) and get to work in the bloodstream of the dermis (the living layers beneath), they then exit the body without leaving any toxic debris behind. The circulation-stimulating properties of the oils oxygenate the blood, energizing the cells and allowing regeneration to take place.
Regular use of face and body treatments that are made with pure and natural oils can promote – and sustain – improved skin texture, hydration, elasticity and tone; and at the same time ultimately soothe your senses leaving you feeling rejuvenated with a radiant healthy-looking glow!
