Oil is the new Lotion.
Lotion loyalists: We’re sorry to crash your seemingly perfect world of hydration. You thought you had a good thing going…but hey—wouldn’t you want to know?
Truth: creamy texture but an illusion. Most lotions add up to 70% water, emulsifiers, and other miscellaneous ingredients just to create the creamy.
Some of these additives aren’t necessarily beneficial or great for your skin.
In fact, some of the emulsifying processes used by conventional lotions create known carcinogens and pollute ground water sources.
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Essential oils, on the other hand, are 100% pure hydration. Unlike lotion, our oils are also naturally:
Non-comedogenic: meaning, they won’t clog your pores!
Cleansing—oil removes oil, so massaging an essential oil into your skin will naturally remove build-up on hair and skin.
Clear skin for the win.
They also multi-task:
Use as massage oil to soothe sore muscles
Soften the summer-crispy ends of your hair.
Breathe in the health benefits of essential oils.
Ah, but aren’t they… OILY?
Forget the nasty, slicky, even sticky, quick-hand-me-a-towel oils of yore.
Used in the correct amount, essential oil isn’t like that. Promise. A drop of oil covers the same area as several pumps of a conventional lotion. Oils immediately absorb into the skin and protect the skin’s natural lipid barrier, preventing moisture from evaporating quickly – so your skin feels soft and hydrated longer.
The best way to apply essential to massage into damp skin after a shower. If time permits, it’s best to wait 3 minutes (mini-meditation, anyone?) before getting dressed to allow oils to really sink in. Bright, spicy, soft mint, citrusy, floral: Pick your pleasure and try one of our USDA Certified Organic, food-grade essential oil Elixirs for glowing summer skin.
ATTRACT LOVE BITES AND REPEL BUG BITES at
NATURE IN BEAUTY!
THE MOSQUITOES HAVE LANDED!! Or at least they are on their way. Bug experts from the University of Florida say a species of mega-mosquito called a "gallinipper" could invade central Florida as flood waters from tropical storms force the larvae to hatch. Look out!
Many people are unaware that insect protection products on the market today contain harmful man-made chemicals such as DEET and pyrethrins. These substances remain in the environment and cause damage to humans, animals, water supplies, soil, and important pollinating insects such as bees.
