Instructions

Ingredients:
Coconut oil, Calendula infused EVOO, Aloe Vera Gel, Witch Hazel extract, Yarrow hydrosol, with essential oil synergy of cypress, grapefruit and geranium.

How to use:
**SHAKE WELL BEFORE EACH USE**, hydrosols, gel, and oil will separate.
Massage onto legs from foot upward with long upward strokes.  Do circular motions around knees and hips.  I prefer morning time to do this, evening is also good.  Consistent use over a period of 3-6 months will give best results.  This blend was formulated for legs, but will also get cooling and toning for body and arms.

Available for purchase:
2 oz glass bottle for $12.00
4 oz glass bottle for $22.00
Contact Bobbi to order.

Coconut oil is very cooling and a lovely oil for summertime as it also has an SPF of around 4.  Coconut oil is a great emollient and also slightly occludes the skin thereby preventing transepidermal water loss — making it a great oil for dry skin (and dry damaged hair).

Calendula oil is also cooling and highly anti-inflammatory, a healing oil — very good at helping the skin heal, it is and one of the best oils for skin.  Both coconut and calendula oils offer anti-bacterial and anti-viral benefits.

Witch hazel is cooling and toning – as is yarrow hydrosol.  Yarrow is also a very healing plant.

The essential oil synergy supports the toning and circulation benefits of this body oil/gel.  Cypress is astringent and toning to veins — and stimulating to the lymph system helping to improve lymphatic circulation and prevent swelling in the legs.  Grapefruit is also a top choice for improving lymphatic circulation.  Geranium is also slightly astringent and helpful in improving circulation around cellulite and healing the skin — it is good at reducing fungal or bacterial infections of the skin.
