Facial Tonic Oil! A.K.A. Why am I putting oil on my face?
Especially for these dry months coming up, your face and hair will need moisture! Facial Tonic Oil is an amazing mixture of grape seed oil, olive oil, meadow foam oil, wheat germ oil, red raspberry seed & cranberry fruit oils. High in antioxidants and rejuvenating moisturizing ingredients, we are proud to say this oil is organically preserved and contains no artificial ingredients!
Here are some suggested uses for Facial Tonic Oil:
Facial cleansing for all skin types: Massage roughly a nickel sized amount into skin, remove with clean, warm washcloth. Tone and moisturize as needed. Like attracts like, oils help gently cleanse pores and the motion of facial massage you're using to cleanse is great for your skin as well. Hazzah. Some oil washers have reported a week of slightly more breakouts as the skin purges impurities, then after that, much smoother sailing!
Moisturizing oil: Apply to skin as needed. Especially useful after peel or exfoliation treatments, wheat germ oil stimulates tissue regeneration because it is rich in minerals, vitamins (especially vitamin E), and proteins. Good for reducing wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, scars and stretch marks. I use this oil as a morning facial "mask", then wash it off in the shower. Caution oils will stain clothing!!
Bath: A few pumps into a nice bath, not only relaxing but your skin will be soft and smooth! Be careful too much will make your bathtub slippery.
Shaving: Apply to skin for use as moisturizing shaving oil.
Hair Conditioning: Add sparingly to hair to tame frizz & moisturize.
PS. Our new men’s Beard Oil is this oil blend + aromatherapy!
