SWEET ALMOND OIL Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic practices have used almond oil for centuries to help soothe and soften the skin and reduce scarring.
It contains vitamin A to stimulate the production of new skin cells and smooth fine lines, vitamin E to help prevent cell damage and contributes to smoothing the skin, omega -3 fatty acids that help prevent premature ageing and safeguard against sun damage and zinc which is an essential nutrient for healing acne or other scars.

PATCHOULI OIL was popularised in the 1960s when the hippy generation was called the ‘Patchouli Generation’. This oil is so potent it’s been used for hundreds of years.

LAVENDER OIL is a herb native to northern Africa and the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean. It has been used for centuries to purify the skin and for its medicinal properties to treat anxiety and wound healing. When diluted in a carrier oil such as argan oil sweet almond oil, lavender can be used directly on the skin to assist with skin ailments and healing.

Lavender’s antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties also assist in treating eczema. It helps cleanse your skin and lessen redness and irritation.The antioxidants in lavender oil protect the skin from free radicals, which are partly responsible for fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. The oil’s pain-relieving and numbing effects help soothe inflammation, while the beta-caryophyllene in the oil also acts as a natural anti-inflammatory making it helpful for burns, insect bites and wound healing.
