Skin Balm - Rose and Geranium
The Rose Geranium and Patchouli Skin Balm captures the stunning aromas of an English country garden in a pot. The flowery pair are pretty good at combating stress and depression, clearing oily pores and rejuvenating skin. Mixed up with jojoba and apricot kernel oils, rose geranium and patchouli transform a super gentle balm into a sweet smelling skincare remedy. Made in small batches, these balms are made with 100% pure botanical ingredients.
+ Rose geranium is a bit of a superstar when it comes to health credentials. Not only does it carry a therapeutic fragrance – often used to relieve stress – it is an astringent, which means it can cause your blood vessels to contract, tightening the facial skin to reduce wrinkles. Plus, it can prevent the development of infections, speed up the healing of wounds and soothe scars.
+ Patchouli can lift depression and anxiety, fight a fever, reduce inflammation and rejuvenate skin and hair through the increased production of red blood cells. And, if that wasn’t enough it also works as an insecticide.
+ Apricot kernel oil is – unsurprisingly – extracted from the seeds of apricots. It is light in texture, so it can be absorbed quickly and then sets to work softening the skin. Not only does it contain vitamins A and E, it is also a wonderful moisturiser, anti-inflammatory and combats the signs of aging through nourishing and supporting the skin.
+ Jojoba oil is pretty magical. It has an affinity with our body’s sebum, which means it is more readily absorbed than other oils. It helps balance sebum production when applied topically, so your skin should be neither oily nor dry.
+ Calendula is famous for its ability to treat damaged and inflamed skin. It is often used as a remedy for wounds, acne, rashes and eczema. You might come across it in massage oils too, due to its softening and soothing properties.
+ Vitamin E keeps skin happy and eyes bright. Its antioxidant properties means it is good at protecting the skin from unpleasant toxins and the sun’s powerful rays, whilst also retaining moisture.
With clean fingertips, massage a very small amount of balm gently into the skin. The balm can be applied as often as required and is suitable for use anywhere on the body.
