These versatile, plant-based oils and extracts play a crucial role in diluting, enhancing, and delivering the benefits of essential oils while providing their unique set of nourishing properties. Some oils may have properties that can treat certain skin conditions and help with the healing of scars. Below we list our favorite carrier oils and extracts for nourishing the skin, healing scars and providing the best protection as we brave the cooler months: 

Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil, which is oil extracted from the seeds of rose bushes, is renowned for its numerous health benefits. Rosehip Oil is loaded with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as antioxidants like beta-carotene and lycopene. These nutrients help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals & pollution, promotes skin regeneration, and improves overall skin texture and tone. The oil contains fatty acids such as linoleic acid and oleic acid, which possess anti-inflammatory properties and Due to its high content of essential fatty acids, Rosehip Oil is an excellent moisturizer for the skin, leaving the skin looking youthful and radiant. 

Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil

Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil, derived from the seeds of the sea buckthorn plant, is packed with omega-3, omega-6, omega-7, and omega-9 fatty acids. These essential fatty acids are crucial for maintaining healthy skin, as they help to hydrate and nourish the skin barrier. They also possess anti-inflammatory properties, which can help soothe irritated skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to promote wound healing and tissue regeneration. It contains bioactive compounds such as palmitoleic acid and phytosterols, which have been shown to accelerate the healing process and reduce inflammation.

Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed Oil, extracted from the seeds of grapes, offers various health benefits beyond its culinary uses. Grapeseed Oil is lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin, making it an excellent moisturizer for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin. Unlike some other oils, grapeseed oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it won't clog pores or exacerbate acne. Grapeseed Oil contains linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This makes grapeseed oil beneficial for soothing inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and dermatitis and can help reduce skin redness, swelling, and irritation.

Chamomile Extract

Chamomile extract possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties due to its high content of flavonoids, terpenoids, and other bioactive compounds. These properties make chamomile extract beneficial for soothing inflammatory conditions such as skin irritation, eczema, and minor wounds. It can also help protect cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals, supporting overall health and well-being, relaxation, reducing stress, and improving overall sleep quality.

In our quest for well-being and beauty, it's essential to remember the harmonious relationship between science and nature, where ancient wisdom meets modern innovation.
