Meet the luxurious oils that work in harmony with your skin’s existing properties to bring it to life and restore your natural, youthful glow. These natural treatments nourish, re-invigorate and perfect your complexion with their unique restorative components.  The best part about natural beauty oils is that they’re gentle and won’t strip your skin of essential moisture, nor do they clog your pores.

Each natural beauty oil possesses its own benefits and advantages, so there’s a beauty oil out there with your name on it.

Macadamia Oil

The macadamia is an Australian nut whose oil is perfect for hydrating and rejuvenating skin. Particularly if you’ve been exposed to extreme conditions such as harsh sun, hot winds and a dry environment, macadamia oil is useful for those of us who have grown up in its country of origin.

This oil is rich in omega 7, an essential fatty acid that is found in your skin’s natural oils, which diminishes with ageing. The omega 7 in macadamia oil works in harmony your skin’s natural fatty acids to replenish the existing barrier and preventing moisture loss.

Rosehip Oil

What’s better than receiving a bouquet of gorgeous fragrant roses? Discovering that these beauties can help you achieve and maintain a more radiant complexion.

Harvested from the berry-like fruit that lies underneath the flower petals of the wild rose plant, found growing in the mountains of Africa and South America, this amazing oil is naturally rich in essential fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9 and Vitamin A, not to mention important antioxidants. It’s a perfect treatment for your skin, no matter your age.

Rosehip oil restores suppleness to aged skin while also smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. It replenishes sun damaged skin (we’ll take any opportunity to make amends with our skin cells for all those times we forgot the sunscreen). Have you got a few scars or stretch marks that you’d like to fade? Rosehip oil can do that too.

Almond Oil

They’re a great snack to beat three-thirty-itis, a tasty substitute for regular milk and now you can absorb them through your skin.  Almonds truly are the multi-tasking wonder of the health and beauty realm.

Almond oil is rich in Omega 9 and Omega 6 fatty acids, which help to nourish and soften dry, dull skin. Whether you’ve had a long day or you’re just after a pampering session (of course, you deserve it) almond oil’s moisturising and softening properties make it an ideal base oil for massages.

This wonderful natural beauty oil can help you to achieve a radiant and healthy glow, soothing redness, replenishing dry skin and improving uneven skin tone. We like the sound of that.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil may be difficult to pronounce without practice (surely we’re not the only ones), but it’s delightfully easy to use. Extracted from the seed of the Jojoba plant (also known as Simmondsia chinensis for the botanically minded), it can be used to build a long-lasting barrier against moisture loss for your skin. Jojoba oil balances oily complexions by regulating the production of sebum, an oil naturally produced by our skin.

It’s not just for your face and body either. Jojoba oil can be used to naturally condition your hair used as a leave-in treatment or a small amount rubbed into your palms and smoothed over the ends of your hair to tame frizzies.
