I have been interested in natural oil therapy since I was a teenager, and even before I gained a Diploma in Natural Oil Therapy, I was studying and reading about plant healing properties, and would be found grinding herbs and making my own concoctions.
One of my favourite ingredients, that I swear by, for skin and general health is organic extra virgin coconut oil. I use Nuilife certified organic Virgin Coconut Oil, that is non-GMO, non bleached, fair trade and extracted and packaged within an hour. If you are interested in this product you can visit the KokonutPacific website.
Coconut oil is an exfoliant and all over skin food, providing deep nourishment for dry and damaged skin and is the ideal anti-aging ingredient. It helps strengthen underlying tissues and helps remove excessive dead cell on the skin’s surface that makes your skin rough and flaky in texture. It prevents free radical formation and can protect against developing liver spots, blemishes caused by aging and sun damage. It is so easily absorbed into the skin and cell structure limiting damage.
Coconut oil has an abundant source of Medium-Chain Triglycerides, which when applied to your skin, your natural good bacteria convert these Medium-Chain Triglycerides into Antimicrobial Fatty Acids. Antimicrobial Fatty Acids prevent viral, fungal, and bacterial infections, including yeast! Antimicrobial Fatty Acids act like nature’s natural bodyguards for your skin.
I have created a lovely moisturiser, that not only smells divine but is enriched with pure essential oils (not fragrant) properties that will compliment the properties of coconut oil.
15ml of extra virgin organic coconut oil
2 drops of Bulgarian Rose essential oil
2 drops of Neroli essential Oil
2 drops of Frangipani essential oil
2 drops of Violet essential oil
(shake well before each use, then roll onto the skin and blend with fingertips. Use morning and night)
Summary of essential oils
I use premium ingredients and organically sourced where possible.
BULGARIAN ROSE -The antibacterial property helps regulate skin oil production, and has anti inflammatory properties, can reduce redness. The rose oil creates a feeling of calm, antidepressant and well-being.
NEROLI -can help to regenerate skin cells and is a rejuvenating oil useful to prevent ugly scar tissue, promote a smoother skin, fighting stretch marks and broken capillaries. Great for anxiety, depression, fear, shock and stress too.
FRANGIPANI -emotionally uplifting properties. Restores inner peace and harmony which guides us to honour the sacred in all relationships, especially intimate ones. Absorbs easily and helps keep skin soft and smooth. It is also reported to offer some protection against UV-B rays.
VIOLET -It helps circulation, and helps aging skin look younger and has a shrinking effect on enlarged pores. Soothes and comforts sensitive, dry, itchy, red and problem skin. Good for calming and reducing tension.
