Facial oils have been in use for centuries, and present the most pure, preservative free, moisturization available. Oil has gotten a bad rap and I'm not sure why, except that most commercial products are created with petroleum-based products that are more like saran wrap on the skin than a nourishing body oil. In fact, natural vegetable, nut, and seed oils can help heal blemishes and acne. Many pure botanical essential oils are also used for just this purpose. In fact, many find that when they use a facial oil on their skin, they achieve better balance of facial oils and return their skin to a normal balance because the skin is not overcompensating for stripped down skin.
The base oils are nonclogging and neutral, including HAZELNUT oil, which is slightly astringent, CAMELLIA (tea plant), SUNFLOWER and SAFFLOWER oils. I infuse the oil base in organic herbs of CHAMOMILE (anti-inflammatory), CALENDULA (healing), SAGE (gently astringent), and THYME (anti-septic and thus, anti-acne).
Precious ingredients are included to promote healing and provide extra nourishment, and each essential oil was carefully chosen for its specific properties for this skin type. RHATANY ROOT, CARROT SEED & ROOT, SEABUCKTHORN BERRY, and precious BLUE CHAMOMILE essential oil are powerhouses in altering skin to achieve the results you seek. The serum has a fresh, invigorating scent based on acne-fighting essential oils such as TEA TREE, LEMONGRASS, LIME, CEDARWOOD, etc.
Full size is packaged in 1 oz cobalt blue glass bottle with dispenser pump. Use one or two drops on the face at bed time and/or in the morning as needed. I especially love to follow application with a clean spray of a facial mist OR feel free to apply on top of your favorite toner for excellent hydration. This bottle of skin serum will last you a very long time, considering most people only use 4 drops a day!

NOTE ABOUT PRESERVATIVES:
In the bath & body industry, we now know for certain that all creams need to have a preservative in them or the creams are susceptible to molds, fungi, bacteria, and other unwanteds, no matter how sterile the manufacturing process. there is simply no getting around it.
Vit E and Rosemary Oil extracts are NOT anti-microbial preservatives but rather, preserve against oil rancidity. Antioxidents are great for this purpose but do NOT prevent against molds, bacteria, etc, which can cause more harm than a chemical preservative can!
This is why I have chosen to use the most gentle preservatives available in my creams, and always ones that are paraben-free and formaldehyde-releasing free. Parabens and formaldehyde-releasing agents are the most commonly found on the market, and are also the most problematic for myriad reasons.
That said, facial oils such as my Skin Serums present a way to have a completely (antimicrobial) preservative free. Molds and bacteria are only present where water is present, so products with only oils (balms, facial oils, skin oils, body polishes, etc) can be created without synthetic preservatives. Vit E and ROE will do the trick in helping to prevent rancidity.

Thank you SO MUCH for the serum...I am in love with it. I had a few breakouts on my chin (pre-period related), and after just one application of the serum before bed woke up almost clear. The pimples were gone by this morning, and I've noticed that my skin tone is more even than it's been in a long time. The serum is the perfect moisturizer for me - my skin is hydrated without being oily, and it just melts into my skin when I put it on. Plus it has a great smell.
oh my God. you hit the nail on its dry head there. thank you so much. your advice and the dry skin balm are unbeatable... and the scent!!! even my partner likes the smell,
WOW, this stuff cleared up a couple of spots I had overnight. Wonderful, wonderful product. Thanks!
This serum smells great and mattifies my oily skin. I use it before I go to bed and it definitely helps reduce the size of acne. I can use this, add moisture to me skin and not worry about breakouts from excess oil production. I love it! (did I mention it smells great? I love the cedarwood smell)
Really wonderful serum - works very well and smells delightful!! One of my favorite new items from such a wonderful shop!!
This stuff is magical. I love how soft and smooth my skins feels when I wake up in the morning. Smells great - reminds me of Aveda.
This saved my face.
This serum has to be the best serum I have ever purchased and I have tried many at very high prices as well. This works so well, I cannot be without it.
