COCONUT OIL RBD
Coconut oil is a type of 'vegetable oil' that is derived from the flesh of coconuts. It is a popular ingredient in many self-care products, for both hair and the body. Can be used raw and on its own, or in mixes like this recipe.
SWEET ALMOND OIL - PURE NATURAL BASE CARRIER OIL
Sweet almond oil is a carrier oil that can be used to dilute essential oils and help them spread evenly when applied to the skin. It's rich in vitamins and fatty acids and a good addition to hydrating homemade products.
ROSEMARY ESSENTIAL OIL
Rosemary essential oil is a popular choice for aromatherapy and has a wide range of benefits. It's great for dry skin, but mainly smells AMAZING!
FRANKINCENSE ESSENTIAL OIL
Frankincense oil is extracted from the resin of the Boswellia tree. The tree is native to Somalia, Oman, and Yemen. No wonder its scent characterises the top note of many of the traditional scent combinations popular in the region.
NATURAL VITAMIN E OIL
This oil is the real star of the show (besides mango butter). Natural vitamin E oil is an excellent way to improve your skin's health and appearance. Vitamin E is a powerful source of antioxidants that can help protect your skin, not just hydrate it.
Mango butter is a natural, triglyceride-rich butter that is derived from the mango fruit. It is solid at room temperature but melts easily when rubbed onto the skin, making it ideal for use in a variety of skincare recipes. Mango butter has a creamy texture and a mild, sweet scent that makes it a popular choice for use in year-long skincare.
