Organic Camellia oil is harvested and cold pressed from the seeds of the Camellia plant, and is a light and non-greasy oil known for centuries in the East for its rejuvenating and skin-nurturing properties.
It is a wonderful oil said to smoothen and brighten skin, prevent wrinkles and dryness, and is highly protective. Reputed to be the Japanese Geishas' best-kept secret for lovely unblemished skin, Camellia oil is highly valued for its anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties.
The new Organic Camellia massage and body oil in the Lemon Myrtle Essentials range is available with a special blend of Australian organic Lemon Myrtle essential oil and Fragonia essential oil for upliftment and peace. Use for massage, or after shower/bath rub into skin to nurture and moisturise.
Lemon Myrtle Essentials organic body care are made in small batches for freshness and potency. These products are meant to be enjoyed and used frequently, not hoarded! If not using straightaway, store in the refrigerator for prolonging the exuberant freshness of the product. Natural preservatives are effective, however freshness is maximised when products are stored in cool dark places, especially during summertime!
Lemon Myrtle essential oil has especially high citral content, hence the lovely citrusy aroma. Citral belongs to the family of aldehydes which are potentially skin sensitising, hence the caution not to apply neat on skin (as for many other essential oils).
Lemon Myrtle Essentials organic bodycare products are formulated with gentleness and skin friendliness in mind. Whilst there are generous amounts of essential oils in these products, we have trialled the optimum amount in these formulations to ensure skin-friendly experiences! I've extensively tested on my own and others' sensitive and eczema-prone skin with positive and benign results. As with any products, people with known sensitivies or allergies should test before using.
