These Plant Oils Could Be Revolutionary To Your Natural Skincare Regime
You might know these plant oils for cooking or essential oils, but do you know what they do for your skin as part of your clean beauty routine?
Let’s dive in to take a deeper look into how plant oils can benefit your skin!
Avocado oil has recently been popularized for cooking healthy foods. It is a healthier replacement to canola or even olive oil. It is an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids. But do you know what it can do for your skin?
Because avocado oil is rich in vitamin A, D, and E and fatty acids, lecithin and protein, it works to moisturize and soften your skin. It even is proven to protect the skin against UV rays and increase collagen!
Sesame Seed Oil
Sesame seed oil is one of the most popular oils for cooking due to its nutty flavor and high cooking temperature. However, many people do not realize its beneficial powers for skincare.
Sesame seed oil is known to be rich in antioxidants, which are great for fighting against free radicals and evening out skin tone. It is also known for its antimicrobial powers that work to fight against harmful bacteria. Sesame oil is known for its rapid production of collagen since it is very rich in zinc.
Raspberry Seed Oil
Many of you have probably heard of raspberry essential oil, but raspberry seed oil is much different. Raspberry seed oil is cold-pressed from red raspberry seeds. These fruits are packed with fatty acids and vitamins that are essential for protection from the sun. This oil offers UV protection and fights off unwanted free radicals.
Raspberry seed oil is a fantastic source for vitamin A and E. These vitamins combined offer healthy skin cell growth, which helps to even out skin tone and unwanted dark spots! It also contains essential fatty acids that reduce inflammation and fights against dry skin conditions!
You can apply avocado, sesame, and raspberry oil directly to your skin or you can mix it in with other skincare products. Our Hälsa Botanicals Calm CBD Body Oil includes all of these oils combined with 1000mg of hemp CBD, Swedish twinflower, and other natural skincare ingredients to help heal sun-damaged or even stressed-out dry skin. In fact, avocado, sesame, and raspberry oil help activate CBD to its full healing potential!
Eucalyptus Globulus Oil
Eucalyptus is one of the most popular essential oils in the market. When you smell it, it brings you relaxation or the feeling that you just walked into a spa. Now imagine this feeling, but on your skin…
Throughout time eucalyptus has been known for its medicinal properties, and one of the main benefits is treating and preventing infections. In addition to antimicrobial benefits, eucalyptus offers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s helpful for a range of skincare needs, from reducing redness and fighting acne to boosting circulation and soothing sore muscles.
Eucalyptus oil is great to put on your face or even all over your body! To help soothe muscles, try our Hälsa Botanicals Relax CBD Golden Turmeric Bath Salts or our Ease CBD Roller for on-the-go relief. However, if you want to add it to your vegan skincare regime, try our Hälsa Breathe Arctic Kelp Masque. It’s a great way to remove toxins and nourish your skin.
Black Currant Oil
Black currants are known for their overall health benefits and can either be consumed as a dietary supplement or other foods or applied topically to the skin.
Black currants have a high concentration of antioxidants, vitamins (A, B-1, B-5, B-6, C and E), anthocyanins and gamma-linolenic acid.
Most significantly, black currants carry four times the amount of vitamin C as oranges and double the amount of antioxidants as blueberries. When pressed into an oil and used topically, black currant helps treat dry skin and even helps ease psoriasis symptoms. It helps skin retain moisture, reduces inflammation and even helps skin elasticity.
Black currant oil is a significant ingredient in our Hälsa Glow CBD Luminous Facial Serum, along with hyaluronic acid, other botanical oils and 500mg broad spectrum hemp CBD. This serum works to condition your skin while keeping harmful bacteria at bay.
Lavender Oil/ Lavandula Angustifolia
Although lavender oil is known for its unique scent and used in aromatherapy, it is also a fantastic factor in the natural medicine field and even skincare. Lavender benefits include improving hair growth and even helping with digestion. But there are countless benefits to using lavender oil in skincare.
Lavender oil is known for antibacterial powers that work to prevent and even heal acne breakouts. Lavender oil also has antifungal properties, which help to reduce inflammation and cleanse your skin from redness and irritation. Because of these anti-inflammatory properties, the oil can also help treat discoloration and reduce dark spots.
This oil can be used all over your body and on your skin. Hälsa Botanicals' clean beauty products offer several ways to incorporate lavender oil into your natural skincare routine. Our Breathe Arctic Kelp CBD Facial Masque also includes lavender, eucalyptus, shea butter, arctic algae and hemp CBD for a nutrient rich treat for your face. For a fragrant and restful soak, our Relax CBD Golden Turmeric Bath Salts include lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, arctic salts and turmeric. Our Comfort CBD Soothing Salve includes lavender and eucalyptus oils along with 1,000mg broad spectrum hemp CBD and soothing menthol and camphor for helping to relieve aches and pains.
These are just a few of the many nutrient rich plant oils that offer great natural skincare benefits. They offer a great introduction if you’re new to using them or ideas for expanding your current natural skincare routine. Either way, here’s to healthy skin.
