New Moisturising oil

So excited to introduce my new product - Moisturising facial oil. Took me so long to create it. Trying  out different plant oils, on its own first and then in different combinations, until I was happy with the result. End finally I've got it right! It turned out just amazing. It's light and not greasy yet nourishing and moisturising - just what you need :). Will go into more details about ingredients. All natural plant oils. I was looking for hydrating and moisturising qualities in oils that would be easily absorbed by the skin, leaving it soft hydrated and supple.

Avocado oil - It is used when the skin is dry, tired and lacks lustre, as the oil gives shine and lustre to any skin - See more at: 
Apricot Kernel oil - It enhances skin elasticity and has a soft and smooth quality on the skin
Jojoba oil - An excellent oil for protecting the skin from water, wind, dirt, cold and all kinds of weather conditions. The excellent level of protection is due to the fact Jojoba is actually a liquid wax and that wax forms a transparent, protective film on the skin, which stops the transepidermal water loss.
Watermelon oil - provides nourishing moisture without clogging the pores, which makes it an excellent choice for balancing the skin. The array of potent vitamins and minerals contained in the oil feed the skin and help it to flourish. 

For essential oils I've chosen
Palmarosa - which has excellent skin care properties as it moisturises the skin and balances hydration levels. It balances sebum production so useful for all skin types and keeps the skin supple and flexible
And Lavender - my personal favourite which has really long list of beneficial properties. It is great for sensitive skin and for minor irritations.I hope my customers will like it :)

Lavender fields

Yesterday started not really good, but worked out being a wonderful day. We accidentally drove passed a lavender farm, and being an absolute lavender addict I couldn't  not to pop in. Even the lavender wasn't in full bloom the filed still looked standing. We picked two bags of the fragrant herb and now my house smells amazing.
Lavender is very versatile and I love using it in my handmade products :)
