English Yarrow: The vivid blue of Yarrow essential oil is attributed to its exceptionally high levels of azulene - a powerful anti-inflammatory which helps placate redness and skin irritation. In Homer's Iliad, legendary warrior Achilles uses yarrow to treat the wounds of his fallen comrades as its constituents significantly accelerate the healing of cuts and bruises. The power of this oil in its ability to repair and rejuvenate damaged skin cells cannot be over estimated.
Papaya Seed Oil: Contains papain, a fruit enzyme which helps to dissolve excess sebum and impurities in blocked pores and lightens acne scars. Gently removes dead skin cells revealing fresher and brighter skin without any irritation. Has antibiotic properties so calms irritated and sensitive skin; rich in antioxidants and also contains high levels of omega 9. Acts as an occlusive to seal in water and prevent moisture loss so can help to reduce dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, and promote softer, smoother, younger looking skin.
Acai Berry Seed Oil: Acai Berry is rich in anthocyanins and phenols making the oil a very powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory so really effective in calming irritated skin. Powerful in healing dry, cracked and inflamed skin as it is an excellent emollient and a remarkable moisturising oil. Penetrates the skin quickly so non greasy.
Chia Seed Oil: Rich in precious omega 3 fatty acids, intensely anti-inflammatory, calming and antioxidant-rich. Chia oil is a wonder oil for restoring vital moisture, diminishing redness and inhibiting the appearance of wrinkles.
Epilobium Fleischeri: Packed full of flavonoids and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also very high in the tannin oenethin B, which is super effective in regulating sebum production, making it very helpful for treating oily and sensitive skin. Delivers visible results (in vivo) giving 56% less sebum production & visible pore size reduction for an improved skin clarification.

It has a lovely scent and leaves my skin feeling super soft. Quite expensive for the amount that you get though.
