Coconut oil helps protect from the free radicals that cause signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. As a cooling oil, it is beneficial to use during the summer months to both cool and hydrate dry skin.
Honored for its many emotional and physiological benefits, lavender is ideal for all skin types. When applied on the skin, it cools and soothes skin irritation, assists in reducing swelling and inflammation after hair removal methods such as shaving, tweezing, or waxing.
Rich in anti-oxidants, Lemon Balm helps protect the skin against environmental stressors and is a calming source high in eugenol and tannins. Often called “the elixir of life”, Lemon Balm is great for acne and sunburned skin.
The anti-bacterial properties of Neem assist with skin conditions such as acne, blackheads, and dryness. Neem has a naturally moisturizing effect and helps to balance the skin’s ph. Neem can help tonify the skin and help restore a youthful glow.
Our Ayurvedic Body Oil is shipped with a cap on the bottle and includes a pump for dispensing. The viscosity of the body oil can change due to the weather and climate of the area where you’re located. The coconut oil and ghee that are healing and nourishing are actually thicker in composition than other oils and tend to solidify if not kept at a constant warm temperature.
If some of the oils do solidify, it can appear that there are small, granular-sized beads at the bottom of the bottle. Customers tend to enjoy this for an added layer of exfoliation and the beads of oil will melt into your skin during application. For those customers that would prefer a smoother texture, we suggest warming the body oil in a cup of warm water or in the shower to help liquefy all of the ingredients.
If pumping becomes too difficult, we suggest removing it from the bottle and running hot water through it to help melt away any oils that may have thickened in the mechanism or just pour directly from the bottle.
EXFOLIATE THE SKIN
Gently exfoliate the skin using our raw silk garshana gloves.
Warm the oil if desired and massage it into the entire body. Let sit for up to 20 minutes before showering. The longer it sits the deeper it hydrates!
Shower, allowing the warm water to transport the oil deeper into the tissues. Do not wash with soap and use warm water as hot water can aggravate and dry out the skin further.
After showering, pat yourself dry leaving some oil on the skin to continue nourishing throughout the day. Be sure to thoroughly wash away any remaining oil off the shower floor with water and soap to prevent any slipping!
WHEN TO USE
Our Refresh Body oil is most beneficial during the warm months to help cool and hydrate the skin. If your mind/body type or “dosha” is primarily Pitta and you have a tendency towards feeling hot and intense. If you are feeling sluggish.
WHY YOU SHOULD USE
The base oils used in this blend are cooling and hydrating. The herbs that we infuse into these oils are also invigorating, hydrating, and warming to assist in moving the lymphatic fluid and cleansing. Together, the blend of oils and herbs work together to balance dryness, heat, and intensity.
