For deeply hydrated skin, you can never go past natural and organic body oils! Whether you're looking to treat oily or acne-prone skin, reduce the appearance of scarring or tone up your arms, a body oil will do the trick! Depending on the plant from which the oil is derived, they can be extracted using a variety of methods including cold pressing and CO2 distillation. An impressive thing about essential oils is that they each contain unique benefits for the skin. Rosehip oil for example is rich in Vitamins E, while Jojoba oil is filled with Vitamins A and E along with Omega 6 and 9. When selecting an organic oil, it's important to choose the right product for whichever body part needs restoration! Here at Nourished Life we stock a wide range of organic oils to nourish your body from head to toe.
