A small little nice goodie bag I got for myself the other day - Oils of Life Serum and Oils of Life Day Cream. These oils contains 3 different kinds of seed oils around the world: Black Cumin seed oil from Egypt, Camellia seed oil from China and Rosehip seed oil from Chile. This oil is created to intensely revitalise skin, revive radiance and visibly reduce signs of ageing.
BLACK CUMIN SEED: When ancient Egyptian kings, European queens, religious prophets and modern scientist come together on an issue, it’s probably worth hearing out. Although today we have more access to information than ever before, we still have a lot to learn from history. From Hippocrates and Cleopatra, to King Tut and the civilizations that followed, a strange commonality they shared was the value they placed on a certain herb.
These ingredients of black seed oil (black cumin is one of them) enable it to act as a multipurpose natural remedy for just about anything and everything. Take a look at some of it’s properties: anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-histamine etc. Black seeds come from the Nigella Sativa flower, and are grown worldwide today. It’s origins are from North Africa, Mediterranean/Europe, and Asia, and have since spread far throughout the globe and is regarded as one of the most effective natural remedies
CAMELLIA SEED: The winter-blooming flower was harvested for centuries by women famed for their glowing skin and long, lustrous hair. The geisha adopted their secret, using the oil to remove their iconic stage makeup and nourish their skin.
Camellia oil is one of the most treasured secrets of the geisha. The flower itself symbolizes feminine beauty, while oil from the seeds acts as a feather-light, deeply nourishing moisturizer. Camellia oil, or tsubaki oil, is rich in oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E as well as nourishing Omega 3, 6 and 9. The molecular weight of the oil is an almost identical match for skin, allowing it to absorb quickly and thoroughly.
ROSEHIP SEED OIL: Rosehip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes predominately grown in Chile, and is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. It also helps with eczema and acne scarring. The oil boosts the immune system with its great source of vitamin C and anti-aging. It quickly absorbs into the skin, replenishing moisture and creating a protective barrier on the skin to help prevent dehydration
