When it comes to the needs of the hair, using synthetic oils will coat the hair and build up weighing the hair down. A light layer of my pure organic oils will mimic the acid mantle (the natural layer of oil that we find on our skin). The fine layer of oil will seal and protect the hair allowing it to retain moisture for longer, which is so important for the fabric of hair. When hair is moisturised, it will move freely and have natural buoyancy revealing the hair’s natural lustre.

Safflower is an extremely valuable commodity. The oil is extracted from the seeds. Safflower is cultivated in approximately 60 countries and is a good alternative to unhealthy vegetable oils (even if it is expensive!) It was found in Tutankhamun’s tomb. It was mentioned in numerous Greek manuscripts. It was known as Carthamine in the 1800s. It is a major crop in India used as an addition to paints or they steep the leaves for use as a dye. Apparently, it provides a boost of Vitamin E. It is rich in Oleic acid which increases circulation in the scalp. It can also be consumed internally as well.

goji berries

Goji Berry is known as the “Fountain of Youth” or “Wolfberry”. It is native to China. It has been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer. It can be consumed in the forms of tea, juices, wines or medicines as well as being applied to the skin. Chinese manuscripts say it restores the depots of body liquids, calm the soil, revitalises the skin and strengthens vision. It was praised by the poet Liv Joncy (618-907) during the Tan Dynasty to help you live longer. 1578 – Li Shudjun (Phyto-therapist China) mentioned that the people from the berry growing village Nanchu all lived to be over 100 years old (folk history). Tea with Goji berries was drunk to increase female beauty and male sexual vitality. It is mentioned in Tibetan manuscripts, having been used in folk medicine for at least 1700 years. There is an annual celebration in its honour. Legend has it that Professor Qing Yven of China was born in 1678 and died in 1930 at 252 years old. This is documented by the Chinese government as fact. He ate Goji berries on a daily basis.

Argan seeds

Argan Oil is extracted from the nut within the seed. This is most commonly used a skin moisturiser. It is high in Vitamin E and fatty acids. Originated in Morocco and Northern Africa. The extraction is very labour intensive. Argan fruit was originally eaten and excreted by goats after which the Moroccan women would collect the partly digested seeds. The seed shell is 15 times harder than a hazelnut. The oil shelf life after the manual extraction process is 3 to 6 months. Claims have been made that Argan Oil has been sold around the Mediterranean since the 12th Century BC. It is the rarest vegetable oil in the world. It is packed with anti-oxidants. You only need a drop or two of pure oil to benefit. Tocopherol within Vitamin E boosts cell production.
