I am and always was in​to fragrances, I smell everything !

Since I was a child, I was attracted to perfumes and fragrances. Som​e of my b​est memories are coming  back when I  smell fresh pastry and pine treesm .I like fragrances and perfumes and  this is one of the reasons  I decided to ad​d all those great essential oils to my body  creams and scrubs,  of course there are lots of other benefits of essential oil that I am discovering during my research.... I have a variety of those in my prodycts: Lavender ,Sweet orange ,Ylang Ylang,  Pat​chouli ,Mint , Bergamot Sandalwood and Frankincense for now and am planning to add more in the near future.​ .Also I realized since I started my business that people are extremely different when it's coming to fragrances ,that;s why I prefer to do custom make products based on personal preferences.Some people really don't like fragrances at all ,they prefer scent less products and I respect that. .I am trying to adjust accordingly and make my customers as happy as I can .

I am using a mix of oils and butters in my products,I like this mix because of the qualities of the oils and butters and the benefits that we are getting from all of them in the right proportion.

It's interesting for me to see how different perfumes are smelling different on different people ,that's why when I am going to buy a perfume I am spraying it directly on my skin and sometimes I see some ironical looks from people that are happening to be there. They' don't get it or they don't know it but as I was saying we are different and the ph of our skin is different and makes those fragrances to smell different ,even intensity can vary and also time that that particular essence will stay on our skin .

Why coconut oil?(Cocos Nucifera)

can be used up to 100% in body products or included in carrier oil blends 30-50%

What is  science saying:  Coconut oil is a highly saturated oil that is traditionally made by extracting the oil from raw coconuts or dried coconut kernels .

At room temperature it's solid, but when heated it can soften or even melt.

It's frequently used in cooking or applied directly to the skin and hair.

Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain fatty acids, which are a form of saturated fat. In fact, these medium-chain fatty acids make up about 65% of its total composition

The fatty acids found in coconut oil include 

Lauric acid: 49%

Myristic acid: 18%

Caprylic acid: 8%

Palmitic acid: 8%

Capric acid: 7%

Oleic acid: 6%

Linoleic acid: 2%

Stearic acid: 2%

Although coconut oil is about 90% saturated fat, it does contain small amounts of mono and polyunsaturated fats as well. One tablespoon contains about 12 grams of saturated fat and 1 gram of unsaturated fats

The medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties that can help protect against harmful microorganism.

  • This is due to its lauric acid content, which makes up nearly 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil and can fight harmful microorganisms.
  • One study tested the antibacterial properties of 30 types of fatty acids against 20 different strains of bacteria. Lauric acid was found to be the most effective at blocking the growth of bacteria 
  • Furthermore, capric acid is another medium-chain fatty acid found in coconut oil, although to a lesser extent. Like lauric acid, capric acid has been shown to have potent antimicrobial properties.
  • Coconut Oil Could Reduce Inflammation
  • Chronic inflammation is a major component of many different types of skin disorders, including psoriasis, contact dermatitis and eczema 
  •  Coconut oil has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • What's more, coconut oil may ease inflammation by improving antioxidant status.
  • Antioxidants work by stabilizing free radicals in the body, neutralizing the reactive atoms that can contribute to inflammation
  • However, based on these studies, coconut oil shows great potential in its ability to reduce inflammation when  applied to the skin
  • Coconut Oil Can Moisturize Dry Skin
  •  Coconut oil to your skin can also help keep it hydrated.
  • Keeping your skin hydrated can help preserve its function as a barrier to keep out bacteria, promote the healing of scars and maintain overall skin integrity
  • This is why I like to use it : its a great base of my body products, ,I don't use it at all for face products because in my experience it's clogging pores and also enlarges them...
  • It's nourishing, emollient and can be used for dry and dehydrated mature skin. and helps with irritation,sun damage and more.
  • It's blending great with the other oils I am using and I also like the smell of it a lot.
