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.
Fractionated Coconut Oil powerfully nourishes and moisturizes the skin and hair. It absorbs readily, acts as a protective barrier for the skin and will not clog pores. It is also very popular in massage as it is light and non-greasy; it also washes out of linens like a dream. Use to minimize fine lines, reduce the appearance of pores, heal damaged skin, remove even stubborn makeup, and soothe skin itchy from psoriasis or eczema. Though fractionated coconut oil is less well-known, it is widely used in the aromatherapy community because it makes an excellent carrier oil that is odorless and less prone to rancidity.
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.
For all natural infusion of moisture, apply oil generously to body or add to a warm bath.
