The earth has it’s music for those who will listen
We are HUGE advocates of natural beauty. Of eating foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. Of giving our bodies the best chance to excel, exceed and thrive. And your beauty regime need be no different! Mother Nature is a very clever old thing indeed; our world is filled with natural ingredients that can enhance and improve- so much so that chemicals and additives are just not needed! Here are five plant oils that will benefit your beauty regime today. Enjoy!
We LOVE Rosehip oil! Its packed with essential fatty acids (omega-3 and -6) and fatty acids (omega-9), it’s intensely hydrating, so it does a fantastic job at reviving skin and improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. It’s a superfine oil mainly used to combat dry and dehydrated skin and the best part? It’s universal- so suitable for all skin types, including sensitive and oily-combination. Get some on your shopping list today!
We’ve written a whole post on this beauty before, but its definitely worth mentioning again. Avocado oil really is one of the super oils because its so rich in essential skin-nourishing potassium, vitamins D and E, magnesium, and linoleic acid. It assists in supporting your skin’s delicate moisture balance, so prevents it from drying out, at the same time as helping to boost the dermis. Avocado oil is perfect for dry skin and here are just three ways to use it:
- On your hair
- On your skin, as a moisturiser
- As a shaving cream
Tomato Seed Oil
I bet you never knew those tiny little seeds could be so useful! Tomato seed oil is actually really high in lycopene, and is a powerful antioxidant when it comes to skin care. It protects against environmental free radical damage (such as stress and pollution) and it also works hard to defend against ageing, whilst maintaining the skin’s natural elasticity. We cannot live without it!
Well, obviously! We’ve written so many times about our love for coconut oil, we just couldn’t leave it out of this list now could we? Coconut oil is certainly a super oil and a bit of a multi-tasker too! It’s extracted from the inner flesh of the coconut, and has natural antibacterial properties that help to heal and repair skin and hair. Packed with essential fatty acids to hydrate and nourish, coconut oil is the number defence for your body against dehydration and moisture loss.

Black Caraway Seed Oil
This might be one you haven’t heard of (at least, its not as widely known as coconut oil, for example) but that doesn’t mean you should dismiss it. Black Caraway Seed Oil is amazing because it contains an impressive combination of no less than 15 amino acids, proteins, essential fatty acids, calcium, iron, sodium, and potassium. It helps to condition the skin while at the same time restoring moisture and elasticity. Fab stuff, eh?
See? We told you there is no need for a cabinet full of chemicals…
