A bit about the Massage Oils base:
Regular massage oils that you buy usually only contain one or two oils that don’t readily absorb into the skin.
This base is different in that it stays on the skin for a time so that you can have an effective massage but then it slowly absorbs into the skin right where it’s needed so that it nourishes and moisturises your skin. It also carries the beneficial essential oils into the skin so that they can carry on working right through to the epidermis of the skin.
What does the base contain?
- Olive oil to provide a nice base for massage.
- Apricot kernel oil which is non sticky and sinks into the skin.
- Sweet almond oil, a very calming oil for all skin types.
- Organic jojoba oil which mimics skins own sebum so great for your skin.
- Organic evening primrose oil to beautify the skin.
- Castor oil to help the product spread which makes it great for massage.
- Pure vitamin E oil, a wonderful rich oil to nourish and protect the skin.
