HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
A superb choice for creams and gels, especially for greasy skin. Use in creams, lotions and serums.
 
It has an astringent effect on the skin and is suitable for acne prone skin or skin with large pores.
 
Works well in body wraps and spa products.
 
Hair Care
A great oil for greasy hair.
Other
Add a couple of drops to an oil burner to act as an air purifier in the room.
 
It is an excellent fixative for essential oil blends and perfumes.
Good as an insect repellent when blended with Lavender and Citronella.
 
Excellent to use in cold process soaps as little is needed to get a long lasting fragrance and is equally excellent for holding a fragrance in your skin care products.
 
We always feel it is a good idea to buy large amounts of this. Every batch has to have a best before date legally, but it is one of the oils that improves with age.
