How Important are Essential Oils

January 15/10

Do you know what is in your face creams, body lotions, shampoos, and makeup? Most of our skincare products are full of preservatives, fillers, water, parabens, mineral oils, alcohol, detergents and petrochemicals. These can all create allergies and skin irritations. Most cosmetics use formaldehyde, methylisothiazolinones and DMDM hydantonin to extend the shelf life. Genetics plays the largest role in your skin's behavior. Sensitivity level determines resistance and tolerance. Hormone levels determines your breakouts. Bacteria level determines inflamation and infection on the skin. This in turn can create acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, pimples, chapped skin, cold sores, rashes, couperose (thread veins, congested capillaries). Here are a few natural ingredients that can heal, soothe, restore and rejuvenate your skin. With the right combination and proper mixing of botanical oils, you can restore the youthful glow and elasticity to your skin. Order your Botanical Serums now.
