What do the essential oils do?
The therapeutic use of essential oils is well documented and we use a generous dose in this balm. The Orange and Frankincense has a fresh and uplifting scent without being overpowering.
Sweet Orange – Naturally antiseptic, orange oil is a good cleanser and can help with balancing skins oil production. It is also thought to help to smooth and tighten the appearance of skin.
Frankincense – Frankincense is an astringent oil that helps to strengthen, tone and tighten skin. It also may help reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks as it promotes the regeneration of healthy cells and tissue. When inhaled it promotes a feeling of calm and relaxation, lowering anxiety and stress.
Why use a balm instead of a cream?
A cream consists of water and oil, combined with an emulsifying agent and some active ingredients. A preservative is needed to stop bacteria from growing in the added water and often is a synthetic preservative such as a paraben. The oil and the active ingredients are the ingredients that moisturise and help the skin, the rest is filler. Sometimes, only a very small percentage of the formula is an active ingredient.
We like to skip the synthetics and the preservatives (don’t worry, bacteria doesn’t grow in our anhydrous formulas) and use a formula that is 100% active ingredient with no filler. We blend our oils and use Beeswax to set them into Balms. Each ingredient in our balms has been chosen to benefit your skin, our formulas are simple, effective and efficient. And because they are so efficient, you’ll need to use less of them.
