Hello my fellow oil lovers! In this post I am going to go into depth about the new oils I formulated in my Miracle line. This post is mainly going to focus on the Nourishing Miracle Oil (hence the part 1) and another post will come focusing on the Balancing Miracle Oil.
So lets just start with why I decided to expand the choices of face oils. It sort of felt like the Miracle Beauty Oil & Serum was it, the best, the final destination in oils, the one and only. Until I started learning about other oils I had never researched. Mainly prickly pear seed, that oil, wow, basically I want a bath tub filled with it nightly so I can stay forever young. The more I learn about this oil the more I am blown away. It can do so much for your skin, and it has done so much for my skin.
So, the Nourishing Miracle Oil recipe started with Prickly Pear Oil, I knew I wanted that in a new blend. I began to pair it with other complimenting oils that were low on the comedogenic scale (won’t clog your pores basically). So heres some info/benefits on each oil in this lovely blend I call the Nourishing Miracle Oil…
To view the listing for the Nourishing Miracle Oil click here.
Jojoba- You probably won’t find a product from me without this oil. It mimics your skin’s natural sebum. I like this, its a good thing. We create sebum for a reason, to keep our skin soft and nourished. So why wouldn’t I use an oil that mimics that so well, doesn’t clog pores, and has SO many benefits for all skin types? Jojoba is actually considered a wax, which I find very interesting.
Shea Nut Oil- You would think this would clog pores like crazy, its a foggy and thick oil. Shockingly it doesn’t do that at all, but it still creates a barrier on the skin that prevents water-loss, so basically keeps your skin plump and very hydrated. I WANT PLUMP! I WANT HYDRATED! Because of what I learned about this oil, I call this the better version of mineral oil. Mineral oil acts like plastic wrap on the skin which is why you can have amazing success with products that use it since it is great at keeping that moisture locked in, buuuuuuut…. it also prevents oxygen from getting IN. So unless you want to suffocate your skin and cause some premature aging, opt for something like shea nut oil ;).
Pumpkin Seed Oil- Wow, this oil shocked me when I first saw it, it is DARK. Almost like a black oil, but once it is spread out its more of a very light green color. Pumpkin seed oil increases firmness, hydrates, and also is known for fighting off acne. Ill take it all, thank you sweet pumpkins!
Baobab- Comes from a tree that, obviously is called the Baobab tree, but it’s also called, “The tree of life.” Baobab oil has been used for a very long time, its great at soothing and smoothing. Amazing for super rough and dry patches, helps bring that glow and life back to your skin. It’s also amazing for your hair and smoothing out stubborn fly-aways!
NOW ON TO THE STAR OIL! Prickly Pear Seed Oil- This oil is pricey, so I basically need to become a millionaire to have my nightly bath dreams come true. Eight tons, EIGHT TONS (That is 16 THOUSAND) of cactus fruit makes only 1 liter of oil. This oil contains phytosterols; plant cholesterol that has been proven to not only STOP the slow-down of collagen production but it also ENCOURAGES collagen production. This is amazing news for anyone concerned about aging. We want collagen, we NEED collagen!
What else does prickly pear seed oil do for your skin?
- Tightens pores
- Nourishes with vitamin E and other nutrients
- Reduces redness & hyper-pigmentation
- Kills free radicals (the bad guys that age you quicker)
- It is super soothing
Now you can see why I am a bit obsessed with this oil.
So let’s finish up about the Nourishing Miracle Oil, it also contains three therapeutic essential oils, vitamin E, and rosemary extra. The essential oils in this one are greek lavender, rose geranium, and Hawaiian sandalwood. They are calming, moisturizing, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, and they help reduce scarring. With this blend you get a very floral smelling oil. I personally find it relaxing and comforting.
My personal results from using this oil, my deep lines in my forehead are finally making a visible change and getting smoother and more shallow! It’s very exciting. My skin is hydrated and I never suffer with dry skin, my skin is also clearer and more radiant!
I use my Nourishing Miracle Oil in the evening after a serum, and before my moisturizer if I am using one. I have an extension skin-care routine, so you don’t even have to use a serum or a moisturizer when you use this oil. 2-4 drops is all it takes to get my skin glowing!
That is all for now my loves!
Sending so much love to you all!
