Camellia & Myrtle Intensive Face Care £25.00

100% organic herbal facial blend for oily skin

Estimate dispatch time: 1-3 days

This oily skin treatment seems to turn logic on its head: putting oil on oily skin?  

Let's think about that logically.  Great Elm's medical herbalist knows that oily skin needs careful treatment, treatment that ensures oily skin gets a fair deal - and more! Nothing too skin-stripping (which just excites already over-productive sebaceous glands), but nothing too clogging either.  On the other hand, oily skin, like all skin, needs proper nourishment.

So this is how we've done it.  We have macerated Lady's Mantle (traditionally used to soothe rashes, repair wounds and cuts) in light, healthy sunflower seed oil.

Then come some other, less well-known oils:  camellia, blackcurrant seed and thistle, all of which are dry, thin non-greasy oils. Each is an excellent source of Essential Fatty Acids (Vitamin F & Omega 3 and 6). Lavender, yarrow and myrtle are refreshing, healing, anti-bacterials that should help with oiliness and large pores.

There is plenty going on in this Intensive Face Care blend,  with its curative characteristics, delightful, fresh aroma and an almost magical ability to disappear into the skin.  

It's enough to make your skin cry out in balanced new pleasure!

SUITS: Oily skin.

METHOD: After thorough cleansing (with Juniper and Soapwort Gentle Cleanser) and toning (Juniper and Lemon Balm Gentle Toner) roll Camellia and Myrtle face care lightly over the face and
neck, massaging in gently with your fingertips.

INGREDIENTS:  Alchemilla vulgaris (Lady's Mantle)* in Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil*, Rosa canina fructa (Rosehip seed) oil*, Camellia sinensis (green tea) oil*, Carthamus tinctorius (thistle) oil*, essential oils of Lemon verbena (Aloysia triphylla)*, Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)* and Myrtus communis (myrtle) *  NOTHING ELSE.

 

Tested only on Willing Human Beings.

 

10ml E glass phial/aluminium cap

AS WITH ALL OUR PHYSICKS (AND ANY OTHER SKIN CARE PRODUCT) IT IS ALWAYS WISE TO TRY THIS PRODUCT ON A SMALL PATCH OF SKIN, AND LEAVING IT FOR 24 HOURS, BEFORE USING ON A LARGER AREA.

Physick: from the Greek meaning ‘the use and knowledge of nature’.
