Apricot Oil:
Apricot oil is wonderfully soothing for your skin. It absorbs quickly and deeply, is highly moisturising and promotes soft, smooth and dewy skin. Rich in vitamin E, this oil boosts the skin’s ability to reduce inflammation and retain elasticity by helping to protect cells from damaging free radicals, such as everyday environmental pollutants.

Rosehip Seed Oil:
Often called the liquid gold of skincare, this luxurious oil has been clinically tested and shown to help smooth skin, improve skins moisture levels and help to soften the appearance of fine lines. Rosehip oil is light, non-greasy and contains antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids that can help to improve uneven skin tone, scars and stretch marks. Rosehip seed oil is also high in Retinoic acid, a pro-vitamin A, which gently promotes cellular regeneration.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:
Ylang Ylang helps to balance sebum (oil) production and has a soothing, floral and sweet aroma. In aromatherapy Ylang Ylang is said to be uplifting and is used to relieve emotional stresses.

Why cold pressed and unrefined?
Cold pressed products go through a process of mechanical extraction (pressure) and low-temperature controlled conditions to extract the oil from the seed, nut, etc. Unrefined means the product has had no additional refining/preserving/deodorising. These oils can also be referred to as ‘virgin’ or ‘extra virgin’. This process ensures the finest quality product and makes the oil exquisite for cosmetics. The unrefined/cold pressed process helps the oil retain a rich, strong scent and colour that is true to its natural state, ensuring that the oil’s nutrients and the antioxidants remain undamaged and unchanged.

After cleansing use 4-5 drops on damp skin and massage into the face and neck, use every morning and evening for best results.

Some essential oils are not advised to take when pregnant. Please contact your doctor or midwife when considering which oils are suitable.

There's conflicting information about whether extracts derived from apricot kernels are safe for those with tree nut allergies. So you should proceed with caution. If you have sensitive skin I would recommend doing a patch test first.

Store in a cool dark place, this oil should be used within 6 months once it has been opened.
