As a consumer, it is so easy to get bombarded with information and items from which to choose that we end up on overload and don't make any decision.

To make first time decisions a little easier, you can get a sample of each of the four listed facial creams. You will get four 1/2 oz jars, one each of Serenity Cream, Lavish Lotion, Wrinkle Wrath and Elegance of Rose.
Each cream offers something a little different.

The Serenity Cream is made up of the nourishing nut oils, almond and hazelnut with an essential oil blend of lavender and sandalwood just waiting to hear you say "ahhhh".

Lavish Lotion starts with easily absorbed apricot kernel oil and St. Johnswort and Calendula infused olive oil; wonderful for soothing irritated skin. Combine ylang ylang, lemongrass and lavender essential oils and you have an exotic floral yet green aroma.

Elegance of Rose utilizes sunflower seed oil as its base; another good choice for those with touchy skin or cannot use a nut oil due to a nut allergy. Made from fresh rose petals our rosewater and a touch of rose geranium essential oil adds a refreshing and lovely scent.

One whiff of Wrinkle Wrath sharpens your senses and suddenly you're ready to 'get with it' for a new day. A combination of uplifting essential oils such as frankincense, geranium, rosemary and carrot uplift your spirits while being a great tonic for a youthful appearance.
Almond and hazelnut oils are used in this blend as well.

It is not a problem to use one base oil over another when making these creams. Should you have a preference please let me know. Everyone is an individual with varying preferences and skin types.

Try each one and discover which one could become a favorite! We also carry a scent free cream. Let me know if you want to switch that for one of the others.

Moisturize as needed onto clean skin, ideally while the skin is still moist after cleansing. Use gentle, circular motions with your fingertips, paying special attention to the delicate area around the eyes. If you wear foundation wait a few minutes for the moisturizer to soak in or you could dab any "shine" with a soft cotton square. Due to various skin types, you may need only a tiny bit at a time, or perhaps only the cheeks and around the eyes, or you may just need a moisturizer as a night cream. Keep in mind that this cream has a higher oil:water ratio than you may be used to; very effective for dry skin.

Complaints people often have with moisturizers is that they seem to leave behind an oily residue. Of course a reason could be the quality of the oils used in the lotion, but it could also be because:
1. You are using too much at a time
2. You are applying the moisturizer to old, dead skin cells and it is not penetrating the upper layer of your skin. Exfoliating regularly with gentle scrubs or exfoliating cloths can help with this issue

To minimize the risk of contamination make sure you have clean fingers before dipping into the cream or use some other form of tool for dipping.

Beauty tip: Don't forget to moisturize your neck!

NOTE ON PRESERVATION:
Items are made in small batches as they are needed. The concept behind this shop is for the consumer seeking all natural products with the understanding that the items are not intended to sit around and only natural preservatives are used.
Natural preservatives are antimicrobial grapefruit seed extract, antioxidant Vit. E and the concentration of essential oils. What this means is that while these natural preservatives deter the growth of bacteria and molds, they are not broad spectrum and offer a limited shelf life. Being the risk of contamination and loss of potency over time is present in any perishable product, please try to use the item within 3 to 4 months. Products which contain water such as the creams and lotions are the most at risk for contamination. The salves, containing no water, are very stable as is and are fine for months. Keep any of the products in a cool location, out of exposure to heat and sunlight, and be sure to have clean hands before using. Refrigeration will extend the shelf life of perishable items.

FOR THOSE WHO PREFER A SUBSTITUTE FOR COCONUT OIL
For those who prefer a substitution for coconut oil, we use what is called African Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturizing, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating. Shea Butter easily penetrates the skin allowing the skin to breathe without clogging the pores. The addition of shea butter is a good idea for those with oily skin. Shea butter offers a little fluff to the final cream .

NOTE ABOUT COCONUT OIL:
Ordinarily, in the making of my creams, I use refined coconut oil for the reason that not everyone enjoys the smell of coconuts. To avoid the smell of coconuts interfering with the final scent of the product (either the scent-free cream or the essential oil blends), I use the refined coconut oil unless by request to use the unrefined. Below is a bit of information to explain the differences between the refined vs. unrefined.
The differences between refined and unrefined coconut oils used for my products are in how the oil is processed.
Both the refined and unrefined coconut oils have been expeller, cold-pressed without the addition of any chemicals.
There are refined coconut oils on the market that use a chemical distillation process dependent on solvents such as lye. These products may be hydrogenated using high heat which should be avoided as they create synthetic trans-fats. The refined coconut oil I use are refined using a natural, chemical-free cleaning process involving steam and/or diatomaceous earth. The cold pressed extraction method yields an oil of higher nutritional value than extraction methods that use chemicals or heat.
The smell of coconuts in the refined coconut oil is removed by heat, but the temperatures do not go over 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Some antioxidants are destroyed but some can actually increase.
Antioxidants must still be present and not destroyed through processing in order for coconut oil to fight free radical damage.
As to whether coconut oil is comedogenic, meaning it clogs pores, depends on a person’s skin type, pore size, and the quality of the oil itself. Overall, good quality coconut oil can be wonderful in skin care.
Creams made with the unrefined coconut oil do have a noticeable scent of coconut, however it is pleasant and not at all overwhelming.
