The amazing beauty oils that are widely used in our everyday beauty and health care offer rejuvenating and moisturizing properties and are available in a wide variety, addressing different skin types. Beauty oils are gaining more fans and women tend to prefer them, because of their soft texture and their wonderful scent. Those oils with essential oils can offer more aromatic sensations, improving one's mood and sense of well being. In addition to feminine beauty, oils may be used for both baby and men's care.  

Oils, unlike creams and emulsions, are better absorbed by the dehydrated skin, they are rich in moisturizing ingredients and they instantly enhance the beauty and glow of our skin and hair. They are thicker and more concentrated, they are usually colorless and in their optimal form are organic, without chemical impurities as they have resulted from the distillation of roots, flowers, fruits, and leaves.

The preservation of a botanical oil’s natural integrity can be determined if it is organic and in the way that it is distilled. For instance, cold-pressed distillation retains healthy antioxidant content that is otherwise damaged when exposed to heat. Cold-pressed oils are often rich in vitamin E which has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. 

Oils stay longer on the skin, moisturize it much deeper and give it a strong velvety and elastic feel. If you take a little time to massage the oils on to the skin, the benefits will be even greater as the massage relaxes the area around it and creates a beneficial hyperemia. You may even exfoliate the skin of the body or face before applying the oils, therefore you will get an even stronger hydrating effect as the oil can now seep into the open pores.

With organic beauty oils you know you are applying pure nature onto your skin which is the largest organ of your body and breaths ingredients right into your bloodstream. As we know, what is in our blood also affects our overall health and appearance.
