Clary sage (Salvia sclarea) is a flowering herb that’s native to the Mediterranean Basin. It has a clean, refreshing scent that you can use as a skin balm or gently inhale as part of an aromatherapy treatment. It’s usually cultivated for its use as a flavoring in tea, and also known by the names “clear eye” and “eye bright” because of its traditional use as a treatment for eye health. It is often used in aromatherapy for its antibacterial properties, as well as for stress reduction since it is a natural antidepressant.
Lemongrass is a tropical, grassy plant used in herbal medicine. Extracted from the leaves and stalks of the lemongrass plant, lemongrass essential oil has a powerful, citrus scent. It has antibacterial, anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It is also used in aromatherapy to relieve stress, anxiety, and to help relieve headaches.
Avocado oil is moisturizing, but also anti-inflammatory, a natural steroid, and repairs sun-damaged skin much faster than leaving it alone. The anti-inflammatory aspects of it also can be of great benefit to those suffering arthritis and rheumatism. Nutrient-rich, it is very effective in relieving skin conditions such as eczema. Multiple massages with avocado oil can really make a difference, increasing the skin’s elasticity, for it helps to trigger collagen production. Since avocados have more antioxidants than other kinds of fruit, it is useful in fighting against free radicals.
Sesame oil, called "til" oil in Sanskrit, has reportedly been known since Vedic times. The ancient ayurvedic scholar Charaka, in his well-known treatise on ayurveda, claims that it is the best of all oils due to being rich in linoleic acid. It has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Sunflower Oil, also known as ‘Surajmukhi tel‘ (Hindi) is a non-volatile oil extracted from the seeds of sunflowers. It is commonly used in cosmetic formulations due to its emollient properties. Its nutritious composition makes it one of the healthiest oils for application on the skin and the hair. The main component of sunflower oil is linoleic acid. Its other components include oleic acid and palmitic acid. In addition to these, it contains lecithin, carotenoids, tocopherols and appreciable quantities of vitamins A, D and E.
