INTRODUCING OUR NEW RADIANT BODY OIL! October 14 2016 by Holistic Aesthetician
Radiant Body Oil with Argan & Black Cumin
An alluring body oil ideal for all skin types, our blend of beautiful plant-based essential oils quickly absorb deep into the skin to effectively nourish and soften, boost cellular circulation, and gently detoxify the body. The light and invigorating botanical fragrance will enliven and empower your spirit, leaving you balanced and revitalized.
We have had this body oil in development for over a year and we are so excited to finally launch it!
Why use an oil?
Our approach to skincare is oil-based. Pure, concentrated oils are full of phytonutrients, the powerful antioxidants produced by plants. We prefer oils over lotions because it allows our customers to have a more concentrated, pure and effective product.
The secret to oil-based-skincare is to apply it to damp skin or combine it in your hand with with a few drops of water, flower mists or toner. Water helps oil penetrate into the skin and absorb quickly, giving you almost immediate results.
Julie likes to describe it like this: combining the oil and water to your skin is essentially creating a ‘raw cream’ emulsion that will deeply penetrate into the skin. By performing this basic process directly on your skin, you are able to absorb more benefits and avoid the use of any chemical emulsifier. This rich blend of oils replenish the skin’s moisture barrier.
Why did we create this product?
One of our most client-requested products has been a body oil, and we believe our new Radiant Body Oil is the perfect blend.
Since discovering the benefits of using plant oils, Julie has been nourishing and hydrating her body with custom body oils. She fell in love with using black cumin and geranium in her body oil for their toning, detoxification and circulation stimulating effects. When you use this body oil and dry brushing daily, the tone and texture of your skin will improve and you'll reduce the look of cellulite. Our holistic approach to skincare has extended to your entire body and we’re so excited to share our knowledge with you!
What kind of skin is it best for?
Our body oil is ideal for all skin types, especially dry skin since the rich blend of oils replenish the skin’s moisture barrier. It is a common misconception that oils are bad for oily skin. Depriving your skin of oils can lead to dryness and excessive redness, and can cause your skin to over-produce sebum which leads to blocked pores and blemishes. Anyone with acne prone skin should use this body oil because it’s full of plant-based oils that benefit inflamed, congested and dull skin.
Our body oil is rich in anti- inflammatory Safflower oil and healing Black Cumin Seed oil is great for problem skin, while organic Argan oil is high in antioxidants and benefits mature skin.
We also suggest that if you suffer from extremely dry skin, make sure you are drinking plenty of water or herbal teas, eating enough healthy fats, sleeping well and reducing your stress. Our holistic approach to beauty means that you have to feed your skin both inside and out, making sure that what you put in and on your body benefits it and works together: beautiful skin is a reflection of a healthy body!
Our blend of essential oils in our body oil are naturally detoxifying and toning.
Geranium, Clary Sage, Lavender and Frankincense essential oils stimulate your creativity, boost cellular circulation, tone your skin and gently detoxify the body.

Julie’s favourite ways to use our body oil:
In the morning, Julie highly recommends dry brushing your entire body with a natural bristle brush then showering and applying our Radiant Body Oil immediately after to damp skin. She suggests waiting 2-5 mins for the oils to absorb before getting dressed.
At night, after a relaxing salt bath, Julie recommends applying our Radiant Body Oil and sleeping in comfortable cotton pajamas. In the morning your skin will feel well hydrated and super soft.
