Calendula Flower Oil: Regenerative and anti-inflammatory. Exceptionally gentle for babies. Useful for rashes and skin irritations.
Chamomile Roman Essential Oil: Anti-depressant, astringent, bactericide; refreshing yet calming. May also reduce inflammation associated with cuts and/or may ease the discomfort associated with conditions such as eczema and itchy skin.
French Lavender Oil: Clarifying, balancing, nourishing and uplifting. Combats the blues. Antiseptic and astringent. Encourages healing. Promotes more restful sleep.
Olive Oil: Used primarily in cooking in the 21st century, Olive oil is well-known for its health benefits as a monounsaturated fat loaded with vitamins and powerful antioxidants. But you might not know that Olive Oil has been used for thousands of year on the skin. Its value is recognized throughout the world. The ancient Greeks used to bathe with Olive oil, and for centuries olive oil has treated wounds, minor burns, eczema and psoriasis.
Rosehip Seed Oil: Has a magically high content of essential fatty acids – oleic, linoleic and linolenic. These acids are important for the maintenance of healthy skin. Helps halt the advancement of aging, and actually lessens the appearance of aging and scarring, while restoring natural skin tone and color.
Sunflower Oil: High in essential fatty acids. Rich in vitamins A, D + E. Sunflower oil is a light, natural emollient and is easily absorbed by skin. Studies have shown that Sunflower oil may provide a protective barrier that resists infection. Research suggests that pre-term infants with low birth weight can benefit from sunflower oil skin treatments. Infections decreased by 41% in infants that received a daily skin treatment of sunflower oil. The sunflower oil provided a protective barrier against infection that was not otherwise present on the infant. — www.medscape.com/viewarticle/501077
