To use: Mist body with hydrosol or apply just after stepping out of shower or bath (and before toweling dry). I like to use this for my arms, chest, neck, and decolletage areas.

Baobab Oil – The Baobab tree grows in Africa, and is sometimes called the “Tree of life.”  Baobab oil is pressed from the seeds of it’s fruit (which resembles cacao pods), it has a slight mildly warm aroma. It’s a thicker oil but deeply penetrating for skin, and absorbs nicely, it doesn’t lay on the skin too long. It offers the omega 3 essential fatty acids which are particularly healing for the skin, and help to seal in moisture and protect the skins barrier. 

Argan – Argan oil is sometimes called “liquid gold,” and is handmade by women in Morocco in a traditional, time-consuming process. It is made from the kernels of the Argan tree. It’s a light oil and doesn’t clog pores, yet is deeply nourishing. It has anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce skin inflammations. It is rich in Vitamin E which is a potent anti-oxidant and help reduce damaging effects of free radicals. Argan oil has a slightly nutty flavor. 

Marula – Marula oil comes from Africa and Madagascar, and is known to be exceptionally hydrating and healing, and offers antioxidants to keep skin healthy and smooth. It is a light silky oil.  Very little aroma. It is a single trunked tree with a beautiful crown of leaves, the oil is made from the “nut” seed that grows inside its citrus-y fruit. 

These three carrier oils mixed together offer a good level of hydration to the skin, pulling moisture deep into the layers while protecting the skin’s barrier and preventing water loss from the skin. I scented it with my “orange lifesaver” synergy which includes Frankincense papyrifer — a frankincense with a citrus orangey scent giving you the mind calming benefits of frankincense along with the uplifting benefits of oranges. Neroli is in this blend and it from the orange flower blossom and is very healing for the complexion. Jasmine is in the blend, jasmine’s sweet scent encourages us to follow our heart and embrace our desires. I rounded this out with clary sage, an oil that helps us trust our intuition and dream more.

Orange Lifesaver synergy overall is a centering, enlivening, and soothing blend  — and a very pleasant scent!
