My essential oil complex:
I've chosen the following essential oils for their various benefits to skin and hair:
Bergamot: The benefits of bergamot include easing stress due to it's calming and centering scent. It has traditionally been used for oily and troubled skin. Bergamot essential oil is what gives Earl Grey Tea its fantastic and unique flavor!
German chamomile: German Chamomile essential oil has been used to support the body’s natural response to irritation. This oil contains chamazulene, a compound studied for its ability to support the body’s natural response to irritation. German Chamomile also supports healthy skin. And clears the mind and creates patience and peace.
Lavender: Some of the most important health benefits of lavender include its ability to relieve stress, reduce inflammation, lower skin irritation, prevent infections, and eliminate dandruff.
Clove: The health benefits of clove oil can be attributed to its antimicrobial, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral and stimulating properties. The oil is used for treating a variety of health disorders including toothaches, indigestion, cough, asthma, headache, stress and blood impurities.
Cypress: Cypress Essential Oil is beneficial for oily or troubled skin.
Thyme linalol: Because of its gentle nature, Thyme linalool is an excellent component in facial toners and cleansers. Unlike some other germ-fighting oils, it will help soothe problem skin without causing irritation.
Thuja: An excellent astringent in facial toners and cleansers. This oil reduces irritation on the skin and stimulates the circulation of blood below the skin.
Ylang Ylang: Ylang Ylang Oil has been used to balance male and female energies so one can achieve a state of harmony.
Magnesium Chloride: Magnesium plays a role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, including the metabolism of food, synthesis of fatty acids and proteins, and the transmission of nerve impulses.
Bentonite: An electropositive clay that swells when wet. Acts as an astringent, literally squeezing dirt and toxins from the skin's pores.
MSM: Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a chemical found in green plants, animals, and humans. People take MSM by mouth and apply it to the skin for skin and joint inflammation, muscle cramps, hardened skin condition called scleroderma, wrinkles, protection against sun/wind burn, eye inflammation and abrasions/accelerated wound healing.
Willow bark extract: A mild exfoliant. Contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). In combination with the herb's powerful anti-inflammatory plant compounds (called flavonoids), salicin is thought to be responsible for the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb.
Stearalkonium Chloride: Anti-static agent, surfactant and an antimicrobial.
Cetrimonium Chloride: Conditioner, de-tangler.
Disodium EDTA: Hard water modifier/chelating agent.
Sorbic acid: Preservative.
Citric acid: Ph modifier.
