Recommended moisturizing body oils and creams

 

Applying essential oils to the body through the medium of moisturizing lotions, creams and oils is an ideal way to pamper yourself. These nourishing and beautifully perfumed preparations are extremely relaxing. By incorporating essential oils into your beauty regime you not only help eliminate toxins from the body  by stimulating the circulation, but also improve your skin texture and condition. The tranquillizing and soothing effect of the oils calms the emotions, relaxes muscles, leaves the skin with a subtle perfume and is certainly a pleasure to use.

 Using these blends will help keep your skin healthy by cell renewal and regeneration, detoxification, encouraging good circulation and helping maintain the balanced output of sebum, the skin’s natural oil. The body oils contain emollient, nutrient vegetable oils that have regenerative properties, however if you require  less greasy texture then simply add the blends to natural shop bought or home made creams or lotions. You may use these beauty treatments every day to fragrance your skin and to help keep it in peak condition. If you apply them after bathing it will help with absorption. Only small amounts of these  balms and oils should be prepared at one time so that the essences are as fresh as possible and have the maximum therapeutic effect.

Before using any of the following, please ensure that you will not be using these on anyone who has an allergy to nut oil to avoid the very real danger of anaphylactic shock.
