8 Powerful Botanical Oils for Naturally Radiant and Healthy Skin

Rosehil Oil dropIf you have not yet made the switch to natural skincare, the cooler months are a great time to consider this. Natural skincare is usually rich in emollient and hydrating oils to nourish and support your skin, and this is particularly important as the temperature cools and the elements are harsher on your skin. We often think that oils are best avoided if your skin is already oily, but this is not the case. Quality botanical oils are rich in vitamins such as Vitamins A, E and C and essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants and other nutrients. They can also help to normalise and balance oil production, minimise irritation, refine the texture of your skin and reduce visible signs of ageing.

Here are some of the most powerful botanical oils used in natural skincare to promote clear, radiant and healthy skin

  1. Sweet Almond Oil

    Sweet almond oil is a light, natural and rejuvenating addition to natural skincare.   Almond oil is rich in vitamin A, B and E, helping to maintain the skin’s natural moisture levels without blocking the pores.   It is also a powerful antidote to skin irritations and inflammation.
  2. Wheatgerm Oil

    While Jojoba Oil looks and feels like an oil, it is technically a liquid wax ester made from expeller-pressed jojoba seeds.  Its composition is the closest thing in nature to our skin’s own sebum, and therefore it creates a lightweight and quick absorbing moisturiser for all skin types, penetrating deep into the skin. Even oilier skins benefit from Jojoba oil as it helps to balance excess oil and helps the pores to breathe. Suitable for all skin types, it has a balancing and nourishing effect on skin
