What is an Infused body Oil?
An infused body oil is made when you take an herb or flower (usually dried) and soak it in a carrier oil (ex. almond oil, jojoba etc) for extended period of time to allow the beneficial healing properties of the herb or flower to infuse into the oil. There are many different ways to infuse herbs/flowers into oils so how do we do it here?
Our infusion process is often referred to as being solar infused. This process is typically very lengthy but I feel it has the best results. To infuse our oils we pack dried herbs into an airtight jar, add in our desired carrier oils and let them sit in a sunny window for 2-3 weeks. (Solar infused oils aren't safe to eat, only use on your skin)
About The Ingredients
Our oils are packed with great healing properties so lets break down what exactly is in our luxurious oils.
Calendula Flower - it is antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and has antibacterial properties that make it useful in healing wounds and soothing eczema. It's also used as an antiseptic. This flower also improves skin firmness and hydration.
Chamomile - contains powerful anti-oxidants including polyphenols and phytochemicals. When applied to the skin, it may help reduce signs of aging by protecting the skin from free radical damage.
Marshmallow Root- When applied to the skin, marshmallow root provides instant hydration and also continuously works to improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture. It’s also been said to have anti-inflammatory benefits, which can be helpful for those with rosacea or eczema.
Golden Jojoba Oil - is moisturizing, contains antimicrobial and antifungal properties, contains natural forms of vitamin E. Jojoba oil can help your skin fight oxidative stress caused by everyday exposure to pollutants . Jojoba oil regulates sebum production as it is very similar to the sebum your body naturally produces. Topical application may help relieve dryness, flaking, itching, and related symptoms.
How Long Do These Oils Last?
Typically these oils should last up to 6 months if stored properly. Once oils are bottled, they should be kept in a cool, dark, dry place. Avoid getting water into these oils at all costs.
How to Use?
In order to see the best results follow these steps:
1. Using the treatment pump, squirt about 2-3 drops of oil onto DAMP skin. Applying it on very damp skin ensures that it spreads evenly & absorbs into your skin effectively.
2. Using clean hands, rub the oils into the skin in circular motions until it absorbs into the skin.
3. Follow with Whipped Body Butter to lock in the moisture
4. Repeat steps if needed
