Argan, Vetiver & Amyris Essential OIl
Botanical name: Argania Spinosa
Extraction method: Cold pressed, Extra Virgin, Unrefined
Our argan oil is organically grown and manufactured with the highest standards of quality.
Argan oil is renown for its skin and hair healing ability. It is quickly absorbed upon application and leaves your skin silky and smooth. It is considered an effective anti-aging oil due to high levels of tocopherols and saponins. Besides cooling and soothing inflammation, it has been noted to help reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin`s hydro-lipid layer. This is the treasure from Morocco not to be missed.
Argan oil contains rare plant sterols (schottenol and spinasterol), not found in other oils. It is believed that these phytosterols are unique in their combination and that there are no other vegetable oils with a comparable phytosterol composition. Sterols can be described as ‘plant fats’ which are known for stimulating pore detoxification, boosting the immune system, and preventing transepidermal water loss. Sterols leave the skin feeling velvety while reducing inflammation and delaying the aging process.

Amyris essential oil is distilled from the wood of the tropical evergreen Amyris tree found throughout the world. It often referred to as West Indian Sandalwood, though does not possess the same depth and character as true Sandalwood. Amyris offers a sweet-woody, balsamic aroma with good fixative value, and is often used as a substitute for Sandalwood when a less expensive alternative is required.
Amyris relaxes and calms the mind, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety. It is also said to uplift the mood and it has an aphrodisiac-like effect when used in small amounts in a blend.
Amyris is often used as an antiseptic, a sedative, and to improve circulation. It is very calming to the skin and the mind.
