Aromatherapy Oils:

Our products are made up of CARRIER and ESSENTIAL aromatherapy oils. Each oil has it's own unique fragrance, properties and healing ability. These are the main oils that I use...

Essential Oils

This rose-scented oil is extremely useful as it balances the natural oils in the skin. This means that it can be used to reduce dryness or oiliness, or both conditions, as when someone has a combination skin. Therapeutically, it is very helpful in treating PMS, depression, stress, anxiety, and tension.

ROSE GERANUIM

This oil is most well-known for it’s calming, sedative properties. Less well-known is the fact that it is an excellent promoter of skin healing, and can be applied to burns, cuts and bites as well as pimples and acne. As a painkiller, it is useful in massage treatments for easing pain and discomfort. Being such an all-round wonder oil, I use lavender in many of the preparations.

LAVENDER

This highly antiseptic oil is most useful for decongesting blocked noses and easing tight chests, but is also a painkiller. I use it in preparations for flu and sinus as well as sore muscles, where it is most effective. As it has a very medicinal scent, it is usually only in the Nature’s Pharmacy preparations. It should not be used in conjunction with homeopathic remedies.

EUCALYPTUS

This is the most powerful antiseptic and anti-fungal essential oil and is ideal for reducing skin infections, combating germs and promoting healing. I use it extensively to treat colds and flu as well as pimples and mild acne. However, it is a very strong oil so I use it sparingly. Some people are allergic to tea tree, so please read ingredient labels carefully if you know you are one of them.

TEA TREE

This is without a doubt the “Queen” of all essential oils in terms of scent. Unfortunately, it is too costly to import, and so we have to use a blend of other essential oils to make the characteristic fragrance of the rose. This means that although it does not impart the skin-enhancing qualities of true rose essential oil, it is still able to elicit the aromatherapy benefits of calming and balancing the emotions. When combined with other essential oils, the effects are outstanding. It is my dream to make my own rose essential oil in spring/summer 2020.

ROSE

This oil has been used since antiquity in the form of a resin which was burnt on altars and in temples. It slows down breathing and promotes deeper breathing, with the result of calming anxious hearts. It is also used in perfumes, and as one of the most expensive oils it is fortunate that it has a long-lasting scent. It is invaluable in facial skincare preparations as it is excellent for tightening skin which has begun to sag, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

FRANKINCENSE

This essential oil is a good antiseptic and is particularly useful for treating acne and greasy skin and hair. In addition, it is helpful when trying to reduce the appearance of dark marks left by over-exposure to the sun and blemishes. When applied as a massage oil, it helps to ease arthritis and is a good tonic for general well-being.

LEMON

This fresh-smelling oil creates a relaxed and happy feeling, and is very useful for treating stress and tension. It is often described as being “uplifting”, and this is a perfect description of its’ effect. It is the scent behind Earl Grey tea, which many people enjoy. As it is a good antiseptic and has such a wonderful fragrance, it is also a good choice for treating acne and generally oily skin.

BERGAMOT

This citrus oil is most beneficial for relaxing and calming stressed and tense individuals. In skincare it is wonderful for rejuvenating dry and sensitive skins, promoting smoothness, and healing broken capillaries, resulting in younger-looking skin. It is also helpful in reducing stretch marks. As it combines very well with other floral oils, I have used it in perfumes as well as skin creams.

NEROLI

This oil has, without a doubt, the best antidepressant properties of all the essential oils. Somehow the scent reminds one of happy summer days, and the term “Sunshine in a bottle” perfectly describes the images that using this oil brings to mind. Ideal for lifting the spirits on cold winter days or just if you’re feeling down, it is also good for reducing insomnia and helping you get a good night’s sleep.

SWEET ORANGE

This oil has a bright, fresh scent and is a great antidepressant, lifting the spirits on even the dullest of days. It combines well with the other citrus oils as well as the florals and I use it in several handcreams and perfumes. In skincare, its’ antiseptic properties are most useful for toning the skin and treating oiliness and acne.

GRAPEFRUIT

This beautiful oil has a calming effect, helping with anxiety and tension and can be used to lift depression and shock. Like rose geranium, it balances the oils in both dry and oily skins and so can be used on all skin types. It combines well with other floral oils and is so useful for making creams to suit all ages and several different functions, such as massage candles and perfumes.

YLANG-YLANG

Carrier Oils

Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils and “carry” them to your skin. Most are unscented and don’t interfere with an essential oil’s therapeutic properties. 

This is non-greasy and easily absorbed oil, protecting the surface of the skin, making it smoother and softener. It relieves muscular aches and pains. 

ALMOND

This oil hydrates preventing moisture loss, defends against external damage, and facilitates the skin’s regeneration. It is used in face creams as it is gentle enough to use around the eye and eliminates acne-causing bacteria, preventing blemishes, and evens out the skin tone. It is easily absorbed into the skin without clogging pores. 

SUNFLOWER

This is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal fighting properties make it essential for most healing products. It is soothing to even the most sensitive skins.

COCONUT

This oil, boosts energy levels and enhances the immune system. It improves heart health and digestive process, preventing chronic diseases. 

MADACADMIA

Functional Ingredients

These ingredients work with and enhance the properties of the essential oils to protect, enhance, and restore your skin.

This natural wax has anti-inflammatory properties.  It forms a protective layer on the skin, sealing in moisture without smothering and clogging up the pores. 

BEESWAX

This oil is made from Soy Beans and has a much lower melting point than normal wax, so is ideal for aromatherapy candles. 

SOY WAX

This is an excellent for softening and soothing dry skin conditions. It’s silkiness moisturised the skin and alleviates itching and tightness.

SHEA BUTTER

This oil has anti-inflammatory actions and a similar composition to the skin’s own oils. It is quickly absorbed and is excellent for dry and mature skins.

JOJOBA

This oil has anti-inflammatory properties and is excellent for healing and soothing both muscles and skin.
