For those of you trying to avoid oily skin and reduce the likelihood of getting oily clogged up pores, you might be wondering why I insist that you rub my oily goodness all over your body. Well, let me give you the information about my natural plant based oils that you might not be aware of, and you too will see that adding oil to your skincare regime is the way to go.
Coconut Oil hydrates your skin which can help to keep your skin cell connection strong and aim to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or sagging. Coconut oil will naturally clear away any dirt, grime, or dead skin cells. It also assists in soothing your skin irritations, prolonging your tan and reducing the signs of ageing.

Grape seed oil provides a great source of Vitamin E which is important for keeping your skin well moisturised. Grape seed oil also has some antiseptic qualities which can help to reduce the likelihood of developing skin blemishes. Features in: all of my body scrubs!
Jojoba oil is one of the oils most closely matched to the natural oil in the skin. Your skin produces wax esters which keep the skin hydrated and these wax esters diminish as you age. Jojoba oil produces these wax esters naturally and therefore gives your skin the much needed hydration that reduces with ageing. Basically, this means your skin will love absorbing this oil and it will help to restore the natural oil balance of your skin. Jojoba oil also contains essential vitamins A, D and E, as well as Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. Features in: my Green Tea Body Scrub and Activated Charcoal Body Scrub.
Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet Almond Oil is a light oil that absorbs into the skin well. It is naturally high in Vitamin E, making it a great oil for use on your skin. As it absorbs into the skin it can help to dislodge oil and dirt, making it useful for reducing the likelihood of developing acne and skin blemishes. Features in: my Raw Cacao Body Scrub.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is a strong antioxidant that helps to target the signs of ageing. Vitamin E does this by smoothing skin and reducing the signs of wrinkles, hydrating skin to improve skin elasticity and rejuvenates dry skin. Features in: all of my body scrubs!
Essential oils are not actually oils in the traditional sense. Essential oils are a natural oil that is extracted from plant or fruit sources and are 100% natural. Often fruit peels are cold pressed for their oil content, such as the orange essential oil in my Raw Cacao Body Scrub or the lime essential oil in my Green Tea Body Scrub. Other essential oils can be pressed from plant leaves, seeds or flowers, such as the peppermint essential oil in my Activated Charcoal Body Scrub. It often takes a large number of plant or fruit material to make one bottle of essential oil and the nutrients that are captured in the oil make them great for their skin benefits and aromatherapy properties.
