Frankincense and Geranium Body Cream
Frankincense and Geranium Body Cream is hand-made by me in Summer Hill.
This body cream is an ultra-rich, long-lasting moisture treatment to replenish and repair extra-dry skin. The balsamic, camphor and lemon scent of Frankincense is combined with sweet, minty tones of Geranium essential oils. This vegetable based emulsion is easy to spread and quickly absorbed, leaving the skin nourished, toned and hydrated. Only pure essential and botanical oils used. Perfect for mature and dehydrated skin.
Grapeseed oil is extracted from Muscat grape seeds. Did you know that if its good enough to eat its likely to be good on your skin too? Its true - grapeseed oil is good for you on the outside too! Grapeseed oil is high in omega-6 fatty acids and Vitamin E making it a very healthy choice for your skin. It helps to form a barrier for your skin against wind and pollutants. Grapeseed oil doesn't clog pores so its a good choice for all types of skin. It also contains linolenic acid which may help to reduce inflammation in skin.
Jojoba Oil closely resembles skin's sebum, is easily absorbed and is high in Vitamin E making it a wonderful addition to this cream.
Frankincense is distilled from the tree resin of a small tree native to North Africa and the Red Sea. History reveals it is one of the ancient revered oils and today it is one of the most costly of essential oils. Frankincense helps to improve skin tone and skin conditions.
Geranium is the must have essential oil. It's a native plant of South Africa but has made its way to gardens all over the world. It has sweet, heavy, minty undertones and is useful for acne skin conditions and helps to improve skin tone.
Benzoin is a natural preservative native to the tree that is grown in Thailand. Its also helpful for skin problems - double plus!
Ceteareth-20 and Cetearyl alcohol help to emulsify oil and water together or in other words, keep them from separating.
