Today's blog is a short one, but an important one. As many of you know (and for those of you that don't), I'm a licensed esthetician (skin care specialist) in MA, ME, and GA, and I formulate a couple of exquisite, velvety-textured, organic facial oils for Healthy Harvest www.healthyharvests.com (yes, there is an "s" at the end of "harvests") - an importer of the finest raw, unrefined, enzyme-rich, low acid, high-polyphenol count (read, high in anti-oxidants) Tuscan olive oil. The facial oils are called "Olive Essentials Facial Oil No. 1 and No. 2, and I dearly love both of these formulations - they were designed as "food for the skin" and have Tuscan olive oil as their base, plus various superior-quality, organic and wildcrafted essential oils. No synthetic fragrances, colors, or man-made ingredients whatsoever!
Since customer care and attention is of extreme importance to Karl Burgart (the owner of Healthy Harvest) and myself, we began to notice over the last several months, that our customers were requesting a facial oil that had more of a lovely lavender essence - lavender ranking near the top of the list of favored essential oils! Well, you asked and we delivered . . . announcing the NEWLY REFORMULATED Facial Oil No. 1. To be honest, I love the original formulation of Facial Oil No. 1 - it was not formulated for its aroma, but for the youthifying and nourishing effects it bestowed upon all skin types, including normal-to-oily, combination, mature, environmentally damaged, inflamed, and chapped. Yes, it can balance nearly ALL skin types and no, it will not leave your skin oily - penetrates quite readily.
The original formulation had a very, very subtle scent, being a combination of organic French Highland lavender, wild-grown rose geranium, wildcrafted myrrh, and organic palmarosa essential oils, but now I've gently altered the recipe, basing my blending on the French aromatherapy model, and the organic lavender essential oil really shines, especially when it's applied to warm skin. I feel it now does an even better job at nourishing and rejuvenating your skin. Lavender essential oil is considered gentle and safe, a "medicine chest" in a bottle, and has over 165 documented uses for skin and health care.
This is my promise . . . there's nothing on the market anywhere . . . anywhere . . . like our facial oils! They are totally unique, and that's the truth. No one in the United States imports the Tuscan olive oil that we use as the base (which comes from a 200 yr. old organic farm in Italy) and uses it in a facial oil.
If you've already purchased and fallen in love with our original Facial Oil No. 1, then I encourage you to try the new version. You'll fall in love all over again and your skin will say, "Ahhhh . . . I feel soooo good," and blossom with improved radiance and health! I use Facial Oil No. 1 at night after cleansing and Facial Oil No. 2 in the morning (it contains wildcrafted frankincense CO2, organic French Highland lavender, and Australian Sandalwood essential oils) and also smells heavenly, but heavier, and more robust.
