From combating wrinkles to preventing the breakdown of collagen and elastin in your skin.

In last week's blog we began talking about how using oils on your face isn't a crazy idea and which ones to consider. This week we'll continue on the same path; introducing other unexpected oils into your vocabulary. Let's get right to it!
RASPBERRY SEED OIL
This has concentrated levels of Vitamin E, Carotenoids ( gives the fruit or vegetable its vibrant color), and anti-radical compounds. The daily application of this oil helps to prevent the onset of the marks of ageing and counters the often excessively quick dehydration of mature skin. It also brings relief to skin that has been exposed to the sun for too long.
Right now using Face Oils are all the rage; but in my Great Grandmother's day this was how they moisturized and treated their skin. It wasn't a scary concept and it definitely wasn't a no-no!
I know there are people out they're,(all my acne prone and oily skin types,) who will likely want to debate this point. To their point, they aren't wrong but it also doesn't make them right.
Yes I know I just confused you, but hear me out.
Just because our a great Grandmother's used Oil to moisturize their skin doesn't mean that the oil they chose is right for our skin type. Genetics are a powerful thing yet it doesn't mean we have the same s...

Most people have a very distinct impression when the smell Patchouli which may never go away, however we thought it was still important for us to shed a little light on all the amazing benefits Patchouli has for skin.

Aromatherapy can be a mysterious subject to fully understand. When I first became interested in it I only knew it to be something associated pretty smelling candles. So like with most things I bought a book, yes I'm a nerd. Now I will try to not get too technical because I'm sure not everyone is willing to go down that rabbit hole with me.
I will say this, it's definitely more than candles and pretty smells. Aromatherapy is the holistic therapeutic application of genuine essential oils for enhancing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of the individual.
