We all feel the sluggish effects of dark days and cold weather, which often manifests itself as dry, red, sensitive skin. That’s why this unique blend contains the powerful anti-ageing trio of Argan, Sea Buckthorn and Rosehip Seed Oil which have a high content of fatty acids, vitamins and minerals to protect and regenerate. Essential oil of Rose Geranium works to increases circulation while Frankincense delivers its famous anti-wrinkle properties so overall, skin feels supple, elastic and gets its color back.
This is unique because when it’s freezing outside, we naturally hibernate indoors - an opportune time to rest and restore energy. The daily ritual and massage and inhalation of this finely tuned therapeutic oil aids this process. It includes warming, nurturing Vetiver which is deeply grounding, and Neroli which kicks start circulation. There are also 6 hand made flower essences which work subtly on our emotions via acupuncture meridians.
Then massage upward and over the face, working outward from the centre, until the oil is absorbed and skin begins to sing.

‘As an acupuncturist, aromatherapist and healing holistic facialist, I believe skincare is far more than a superficial treatment. It’s a chance to shift one’s energy; to not only renew the skin, but to rejuvenate the self too. It’s a breath of fresh air in the midst of a busy day. A chance to stop, sigh, touch your skin and reconnect with what’s going on in your head’ - Annee de Mamiel
