Featured ingredients and their benefits:
· Green Tea: A powerhouse of antioxidants are excellent at fighting the effects of premature aging. Green tea also has natural astringent properties making it great for oily skin, as well as antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help clear clogged pores, fight acne, and reduce redness.
· Lemongrass Oil: Can eliminate or inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria due to its Citral content, which is known to have anti-microbial properties. Lemongrass Oil can reduce inflammation due to its Limonene content, and it can slow down the flow of blood by contracting blood vessels.
· Lemon Oil: Provides skin with many benefits such as a complexion that looks vibrant and feels healthy and smooth. It can help to moisturize chapped skin, relieve fatigue and flu symptoms, boost energy, enhance the mood, and generally tone the body. Can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite, as well as act as a tightening and toning astringent that reduces the amount of oil production.
· Essential oils do more than just “smell good.”
By inhaling the aroma of an essential oil (or absorbing the oil through the skin) you are inhaling tiny particles of naturally occurring phytochemicals that transmit chemical responses to the limbic region of the brain, which is connected to the nervous system. Some essential oils contain volatile particles so small that they are able to bypass the blood-brain-barrier, thus having a direct effect on brain and body, including your heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, overall mood and immune function.
