Calmative Azule Oils
At the heart of Recovery Blend’s restorative powers are five blue essential oils – the Azules of Blue Cypress, Cape Chamomile, German Chamomile, Blue Tansy and Yarrow. Rich in azulenes, they support skin with cooling and potent anti-inflammatory properties and provide comprehensive replenishing and remedial solutions to any issues associated with dry skin. The Azules calmative action also eases the key internal issues that often run alongside problematic skin i.e. anxiety, insomnia, emotional heat and stress.
Potent recovery botanicals and minerals
Skin Recovery Blend contains over twenty potent botanicals including oils of restoring Tamanu and skin plumping Tsubaki. Babassu oil rich in lauric and myristic acid forms a protective, anti-inflammatory veil to support skin’s ability to hold and maintain water. Gemstone Malachite shields skin from environmental aggressors and exposure to electronic radiation. Addition of White Clay creates a calming sea of pale green to immediately appease.
“Skin Recovery blend began its life many years ago as an oil I developed for my patients suffering with eczema. Over time it helped to calm and repair their skin which was sensitised and comprised I added some soothing butters to add a protective layer. It’s been waiting in the wings for years until I could secure the supply of one of the more elusive ingredients.” -Annee de Mamiel
Use every day, morning and evening after cleansing. Warm a nugget in your hand, breathing in the aroma and massage into the skin. Use on its own or mixed with a Seasonal Oil or Dewy Facial Mist. For very dry skin conditions use up to 4 times a day.
Please store jar in a cool, dark place. Due to the fine balance of the butters and oils in the Skin Recovery Blend, you may find that it has melted on it’s journey, so please open carefully. The Blend is designed to melt on contact with the skin so this is perfectly normal and will not affect the performance of your product in any way. If it has melted partially or completely, place the jar in a bowl of hot (but not boiling) water for 15 to 20 minutes until it completely melts. Give it a good stir and then pop in the fridge overnight.
