For centuries, lavender has been an essential herb for perfumes, bath and massage oils, cosmetics, salves, and more, because of its myriad health benefits. The lavender plant has natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial attributes to both cleanse and help heal, soothe irritation, and leave skin soft, toned and refreshed. But its scent is what it’s most known for. In aromatherapy, the fragrance of lavender can help reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, calm moods, and ease the soul.
Tangerine evokes sensations of sun, scent and energy. Tangerine oil has antiseptic, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties that help provide superior healing and cleansing. It’s also nutrient-rich, full of vitamin C. That’s an extra plus as vitamin C helps encourage collagen development and its antioxidants help fight aging. Best of all, the tangerine fragrance is an automatic mood-booster. Used in aromatherapy for its antidepressant attributes, its sunny scent encourages relaxation and balance.
Full of skin-healthyl fatty acids, coconut oil helps hydrate skin to reduce dryness.
