Some of the ingredients we have chosen include:
Evening Primrose Oil was one of the first vegetable oils discovered to contain gamma linolenic acid (GLA). This essential fatty acid can reduce inflammation and help maintain healthy skin, nails and hair. The oil feels light on the skin due to its tannin content, and is able to deliver nourishment into the layers of the skin.
Camelina Oil is grown and pressed in North Yorkshire, where it has traditionally been an important food source as a substitute for flax oil. High in omegas 3 and 6 and vitamin E it also makes a fabulous oil for skincare. The oil is quickly and easily absorbed, helping to keep your skin moisturised and elastic.
Borage Oil is one of our favourites here at Boo due to its lovely skin feel, nourishing properties and low carbon footprint! Borage oil has a high GLA content – in fact the highest levels in any known oil – which helps to regenerate, firm and rejuvenate the skin’s barrier function and maintain skin elasticity. Ferulic acid aids skin repair and soothes inflammation, tannins create a dry feeling oil, whilst calming redness, and ellagic acid helps produce collagen and regenerate skin cells.
English Lavender Essential Oil has the most wonderfully complex floral scent – definitely not your average musty lavender scent – sweetly floral, with green and woody notes. Known for its ability to calm and relax, lavender essential oil is a popular oil to keep at home. In skincare it has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which have the ability to soothe and rejuvenate inflamed, irritated skin. Our lavender oil is grown in Norfolk.
Chamomile Essential Oil has a mild, sweet scent reminiscent of hay meadows. Chamomile oil is popular thanks to its ability to calm and tone, with strong anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and repair skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. The scent is extremely relaxing, and will help to calm anxiety and promote a restful night sleep. Our chamomile oil is grown in Norfolk.
How to use:
Apply some oil to the palm of your hand, rub hands together and gently massage into clean skin on your body, inhaling the gorgeous scent to relax your mind and lift your mood. For the best results and to help lock in moisture, use straight after a shower or bath whilst your skin is still damp.
Give yourself or someone else a lovely relaxing massage by using the oil for an at home spa experience.
You can also use the oil in your bath – add a glug as you’re running the water to give your skin an added nourishing boost.
