Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic (Natural Beauty, Health & Wellbeing)

a range of frankincense intense products

I first discovered Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic last year when I was sourcing certified and organic essential oils to make my own natural skin care products at home. I had heard of the name before, in magazines and publications so I was delighted to see that the certified organic and natural products were within my price range. I had been doing my research and had been recommended them on several platforms and forums online. They are a multi-award winning pioneer of organic beauty since 1981, where the first shop was established in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden in London. read more

My Favourite Oils for Skin and Hair Health

homemade skin and hair oil

Hi Guys,

I decided to compile a list of my favourite oils for skin and hair health to outline the various benefits and uses of these organic and natural beauty wonders! Hope they are useful for you and teach you a bit more about them so that you will try them out in your beauty routine.

These are my top faves in alphabetical order –

Almond Oil

Almond oil is made from almonds which are actually a fruit, rather than a nut but known mainly as a nut. The oil is pressed from the fruits seeds. The ground up almonds are a gentle exfoliant and rich in vitamin E. Aids in the removal of dead skin cells and renewal of skin. When the oil is absorbed by the skin, it protects it, even having a low SPF against the rays. It has a lovely consistency and blends well. Works best when massaged into the skin. Sweet almond oil is also great for hair growth and can work brilliantly as a serum. I have curly and often prone to frizz hair so I love using it to tame my unruly mane. You only need a tiny amount as it spreads well. I also use it on my eyelashes with a cotton pad as it promotes eyelash growth so its a fabulous all-rounder. Soothing for sensitive skin. Gentle enough for babies. read more
