Its simple list of ingredients include jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, plus essential oils of frankincense, sweet orange and benzoin resinoid, all of which work together to protect, moisturize and hopefully over time, rehabilitate dry or dehydrated skin.
Is it greasy?
As long as you use as much as your skin can absorb, it isn’t. I made sure that this oil blend is light and should be very easily absorbed into your skin. All that should be left is a delightful, vanilla-like scent and lovingly comforted skin.
How to use
Shake the bottle well (benzoin resinoid is technically not an oil, and you may notice it as residue at the bottom of your bottle). Warm up a small amount of oil in the palm of your hands before massaging it into areas that need attention, e.g. hands, elbows, shins. Can be used on the face as well.
Note: As a precautionary measure, I would advise you not to immediately expose yourself to direct sunlight after applying this oil. Sweet orange oil is phototoxic, meaning it could irritate or damage your skin if exposed to sunlight right away. It would be best to use this oil at night before bed, or allow for at least an hour before going outdoors after applying this oil. So far I have not encountered any adverse effects myself (and the percentage of essential oil I used in this blend is at a safe level), but do bear this in mind anyway.
How about trying it out as a nightly facial cleanser?
Apply a more generous amount in gentle, circular motions on your face. Take your time–the warmth from your hands will encourage the oils to be absorbed into your skin. Jojoba oil effectively dissolves dirt and grease (it’s my favourite ingredient for this purpose!), lifting them away from the pores of your skin. Finish by washing off the oil using a little soapy water and rinsing off thoroughly. You may not need to use a moisturizer after this–just be attentive to how your skin feels!
Keep in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use within 1 year of purchase.
