How to use your products

All of our products come with directions. Here, you will find further information on how to use your products and get the best out of them. If you have any further questions or need further advice then please get in touch – we’re always here and happy to help.

New to our Products?

If you are new to our range then we always recommend that you try sample sizes first. We also recommend that you perform a straightforward Skin Patch Test before you start using them. Here’s what you do;

Skin Patch Test

  • Apply a small amount of product to the skin in your elbow crease.
  • Leave for 48 hours.
  • If there is no perceived reaction then the product should be suitable to use.

As with any product, if you experience any reaction at any time, stop using the product immediately.

Cold Pressed Oils

You can use all of our organic cold pressed oils in many ways and here are some suggestions.

Argan oil is a fantastic hair treatment. Add a few drops of oil to your hands and run them through your hair. Leave for a few minutes and then wash your hair as usual.

Rosehip seed oil makes an excellent facial treatment. Apply a few drops to clean fingertips and gently apply it onto your face where it needs special attention. It can help fine lines, wrinkles and scarring. Use a little more oil on your decolletage and neck area to help refine the skin.

Hemp oil is soothing for very dry skin and can help with eczema but it is also really good for oily skins too as it helps moisturise and condition. It is a ‘short’ oil, similar to rosehip in that sense and this means that it is quickly absorbed by your skin. Apply a few drops to clean fingertips and gently apply the oil onto your face.

Jojoba oil is very similar to your skin’s own sebum and so it’s very easily absorbed. Use it to improve nail cuticles by massaging oil into them. Or apply a tiny amount when styling your hair to protect hair against split ends. It also makes a light body moisturiser.

Face Cream – Day and Night

Our creams are very rich and you only need a small amount to moisturise. Apply a pea size amount to clean skin and gently massage in. Allow your skin to absorb the cream and then apply more if required. The creams can be mixed with foundation too. This really works well to give an extra boost and to stop foundation looking ‘caked’. For an extra treat at the gym or spa, cleanse face, apply cream and then relax in a sauna. A wonderful, deep moisturising treatment.

Looking after your cream

Our creams are designed to melt on contact with your skin so that they can be absorbed easily. They should always be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct heat or light sources. If you live in a hot country, it may be best to keep your cream in the fridge otherwise your cream may become very soft or melt. If this should happen, put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes or until firmer and it should return to its normal consistency. This does not impair the cream and it will still be fine to use.

Face Exfoliator

Apply a small amount of exfoliant to fingertips and massage over your face in gentle, light, circular movements,avoiding the eye area. Massage lightly for effective micro-dermabrasion;  if you are too harsh you may scratch or damage your skin. Rinse off with warm water. Use 1-2 times per week maximum to avoid over-stripping skin cells.

Face Wash

Apply a small amount of face wash to wet hands and make a lather. Gently massage over your face, being careful to avoid the eyes as the wash may sting. Rinse off with warm water.

Floral Water / Toner / Spritz  / Hydrosol

Apply the toner-spritz to a cotton pad and sweep over your face to remove all final traces of make up. You can also use this as a spray, using the atomiser to refresh and revitalise your skin. This works especially well after flying or travel when your skin may feel dry because of air conditioned environments. It is an effective way to soothe and replenish skin quickly.

Make Up Melt Make Up Remover

Apply a small amount of Make Up Melt make up remover to a dampened cotton pad and sweep over your face to remove make up. Gently massage over areas with heavier make up. Repeat until all make up is removed.

Serum

Press the pump twice and apply serum to your fingertips. Gently massage onto face where your skin requires particular attention. Allow the serum to absorb into your skin and blot off any excess with a tissue.

Body Products

Here are some great tips on other ways to use our body products too.

Body Polish – use on its own or with a body brush for a tingling body cleanse. For circulation boosting and detox treat, try the Grapefruit Lemon and Cedarwood Body Polish.

It also works well as a hand scrub with the citrus essential oils working as skin and nail brighteners. Follow with our Soothing Hand Cream for Hard Working Hands for an intensive hand conditioning treatment.

The Sweet Orange and Frangipani body polish makes a fabulous foot scrub as the sweet orange acts as a skin softener – perfect for heels, knees and elbows too.
