Camellia & Myrtle Intensive Face Care - soothes and balances oily spot-prone skin


100% organic herbal facial blend, specially made to balance oily skin



'It seemed an odd thing to put oil on oily skin but not all oils are greasy, as it turns out, and this has made my skin so much happier and me too, of course!  Sissy M., Glasgow.


This oily skin treatment seems to turn logic on its head: putting oil on oily skin?  

Let's think about that logically.  Great Elm's medical herbalist knows that oily skin needs careful treatment, treatment that ensures oily skin gets a fair deal - and more! Nothing too skin-stripping (which just excites already over-productive sebaceous glands), but nothing too clogging either.  On the other hand, oily skin, like all skin, needs proper nourishment.

So this is how we've done it.  We have macerated Lady's Mantle (traditionally used to soothe rashes, repair wounds and cuts) in light, healthy sunflower seed oil.

Then come some other, less well-known oils:  camellia, blackcurrant seed and thistle, all of which are dry, thin non-greasy oils. Each is an excellent source of Essential Fatty Acids (Vitamin F & Omega 3 and 6). Lavender, yarrow and myrtle are refreshing, healing, anti-bacterials that should help with oiliness and large pores. And all this plant-power acts as an amazing anti-aging agent!

There is plenty going on in this Intensive Face Care blend,  with its curative characteristics, delightful, fresh aroma and an almost magical ability to disappear into the skin.  

It's enough to make your skin cry out in balanced new pleasure!



METHOD: After thorough cleansing (with Juniper and Soapwort Gentle Cleanser) and toning (Juniper and Lemon Balm Gentle Toner) roll Camellia and Myrtle face care lightly over the face and
neck, massaging in gently with your fingertips.
