There is a lot more awareness about skin and how we should treat it – the products we use for washing, what we apply to cleanse and moisturize it, and how we protect ourselves from too much sun exposure. When you consider that at least 30% of what we put on our skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream, then it really does matter what we put on it. Many commercial products contain unpleasant chemicals that are far from beneficial and we certainly could not consume.
Natural body and face creams have become popular in recent times, and we love them because they nourish the skin and yes, they also smell so good.
I love to experiment with different combinations of fragrances and butters to get the right consistency to create silky creams with a luxurious feel. The creams below are all made from the finest natural ingredients and are organically sourced whenever possible.
Rich Face Cream
Containing Rosehip oil, Jojoba oil, Shea Butter, Rosewater and extracts from a range of essential oils, this creates a rich cream, yet one that feels light and is quickly absorbed.
I often mix and match the butters when making these, using Shea, Mango and Cacao butters, adding avocado or coconut oils, and a range of essential oils designed to relax or to stimulate, depending on your mood, of the time of day.
