I have always been interested in history and ancient healing materials. And methods We are always looking for the latest technology and ingredients, but forget that there is some magic in the ancient cultures and traditions. When it comes to skincare I am somewhat obsessed about the ancient Egyptians and the materials they used for the embalming process. The fact that their mummies have survived well preserved to the modern day says to me that they were on to something. Oils, spices and plant materials were widely used then are still available today and I would like to inspire you to try some of them and perhaps take a trip down to ancient Egyptian knowledge and culture.
I’m all about using oils for skin care, firstly because they are amazing for any skin problems, especially for anti-ageing and for hydration. Secondly because they are all natural, pure plant materials and easily available. You can use the oils on their own or you can blend them to match your needs. Use lighter oils for oily skin and heavier oils for dry or dehydrated skin. You can also use them to make your own body oils and other products as well as treatment balms and body butters. I use oils every day and night alongside of moisturisers and serums. For me they have really worked well for preventing signs of ageing and I love that you can create different oils for different things and they make great little gifts as well.
