Notes from a Wise Woman

Oils in the Apothecary

There are many ways to make an infusion. The combinations of herb, root, and carrier material are endless. you can find many tinctures and decoctions in The Apothecary. I love creating new recipes. Oils are the most fun to work with. I use several kinds of carrier oils, sometimes in combination.

Coconut, apricot kernel oil, sweet almond, grapeseed, and hemp oil are in regular rotation. Each of them have their own unique and extremely beneficial qualities. Apricot kernel oil has a great amount of collagen boosting Vitamin A, C and E making it a perfect carrier for our rosehip infusion.

When used appropriately, and in the right order during your skin care routine, infused oils can do a lot for our hair, skin, and nails. I use face and body oils for a variety of intentions and purpose. Several times a week, after bath, and at the end of my skin cleansing and moisturizing routine, usually right before bed.

Oils help lock in hydration, preventing pollutants from seeping into the skin. However, that barrier will also prevent your skin from soaking up humidity around you. It's important to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize regularly to keep pores clear. Skip oil under your makeup, never wear oils if you plan to be out in direct sunlight, and always wear your SPF.

With all of that said, if you think you can benefit from oils in your self care routine you will find several types of cosmetic oils:

  • Rosehip Infused Face Oil

  • Amberwood Brow and Beard Oil

  • Hibiscus Hair Oil

  • Warm Vanilla Body Oil

along with several types of ritual oils:

  • Healing Oil

  • Money Oil

  • Banishing Oil

  • Dusting Oil

They are all natural, cold pressed and multipurpose.

Spiritual oils are safe enough to use on your skin and cosmetic oils can be used in a variety of self care rituals and ceremonies. Most importantly, they are all made with a little bit of magic and a whole lot of love.
