Olive Essentials Facial Oil #1: Nature's Skin Food

Hello Everyone . . . Today, as promised, I'll continue the discussion about the two fabulous all-natural facial oils that I've formulated for Healthy Harvest (yes, there is an "s" at the end of harvest in the web address - it's not a typo).  In my last blog, I detailed the uses for and ingredients in Olive Essentials Facial Oil No. 2, and today, I'll discuss Olive Essentials Facial Oil No. 1.  I love them both and use one blend in the morning and the other at night.  Living up here in northern coastal Maine, my skin needs lots of oil, as the fall/winter seasons can be rather arid at times, plus the combined exposure to outdoor cold and indoor heat totally sucks the moisture right out of my skin. Not a pretty picture if I don't deeply moisturize!  I use them in the spring/summer seasons, too, but just apply 3-4 drops, 2x per day, vs. 6-8 drops, 2x per day in the colder months.

So . . . let me recap that both of these facial oil blends contain pure, organic, unrefined, raw, unfiltered, enzyme-rich and polyphenol (antioxidant)-rich Tuscan olive oil as their base - that oil alone (without any added essential oils) will leave your skin incredibly velvety and soft, but when I add the key essential oils to the mix, the results are amazing!  Both formulations tone and tighten the skin, diminish the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines, and add plumpness to mature skin - and that's definitely a good thing!  To refresh your memory about Olive Essentials Facial Oil No. 2, see my previous blog posted in mid-October, 2016.  Now, let's discuss its partner facial oil . . . 

Olive Essentials Facial Oil No. 1

What type of skin is it best for?  I like this oil for all skin types, really, as it seems to balance all complexions.  Never fear oil if you have an oily skin . . . just use a lot less of it.  A light application of oil (approx. 2 drops) after you've cleansed and while your skin is still damp, will seal in valuable moisture and prevent dehydration of skin tissue - which will preserve youthfulness for a long, long time.  Imagine a prune and its plump counterpart . . . a plum.  What's the difference in the two?  Moisture aka water!  Get the picture?

Here's the wording on the product label:  This rejuvenative, gentle, protective, skin-nourishing treatment oil, when used consistently, will seal in moisture, balance, and tone most skin types, including combination, normal, dry, and mature.  An especially soothing herbal remedy for inflamed, chapped, cracked, and environmentally damaged skin.  Contains antiseptic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, emotionally uplifting, and anti-anxiety properties - a truly multi-purpose oil blend.

Ingredients:  Tuscan olive oil, which I've already mentioned, plus the following essential oils:

- French Highland Lavender essential oil:  Organically grown in France and steam distilled from fresh lavender buds.  Lavender is considered a 'medicine chest in a bottle' and is the most versatile and widely used of all the essential oils, having calming, relaxing, soothing, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiseptic properties.  Its regenerative effect on the skin stimulates the growth of healthy new cells, promotes rapid healing, and helps prevent scarring.  Perfect for all skin types, especially red,couperose (dilated capillaries with diffuse redness), rosacea, and inflamed conditions.

- Myrrh essential oil:  Steam distilled from wild-harvested myrrh resin.  Myrrh has a resinous, rich, heavy aroma, is highly antiseptic, antifungal, gently stimulating, and strengthening to skin tissues.  Tones, lifts, and tightens skin and is an important anti-aging treatment that delays the appearance of wrinkles. Acts as an emollient, protective, healing balm for the skin.  Recommended for dry, mature, environmentally damaged, chapped skin and open wounds.

- Geranium, Rose (Chinese) essential oil:  Steam distilled from the wild-harvested leaves, flowers, and stems.  Rose geranium has an earthy, flowery, rose-like scent and antiseptic, astringent, antiviral, and antifungal properties.  Excellent for all skin types as it's quite balancing, but especially good for oily, congested, combination, and acne-prone; gently stimulates stagnant circulation; tones and tightens skin.

- Palmarosa essential oil:  Steam distilled from the organic fresh and dried grassy-leaves.  Same family as lemongrass.  Palmarosa has a pleasant, sweet, slightly musty, floral-rosy smell.  Best known for its balancing action upon the skin.  Helps to rehydrate dry and mature skin or normalize the sebum (oil) secretion of oily skin.  Also tones and revitalizes the appearance of tired or aging skin.  Has antiviral, broadly antiseptic, and antifungal properties.

Don't these simple, but highly effective ingredients sound fabulous??  I put a lot of research and testing into my formulations, and I'm confident that you'll benefit from one of my blends.  The price for either of these oils is $45 each or 2 for $80.  Please give one or both a try . . . your skin will thank you for sure!  They are created with love and the utmost purity - absolutely no useless ingredients or fillers . . . how often can you say that about your skin care products?  To order, please visit
