Camellia Oil (Camellia Sasanqua) has a highly restorative and rejuvenating effect on skin and is the beauty professionals choice for an extra special facial massage.
Camellia Oil is renowned as the beauty secret of the Geishas. This very precious essential oil has been recognized for centuries in Eastern Asia for its highly restorative and rejuvenating effect on the skin. Camellia Oil is rapidly absorbed and the experts at Base Formula especially recommend this carrier oil for facial massage and as a baby massage oil. This luxurious carrier oil is also high in fatty acids, Vitamins A, B, and E and other skin soothing minerals. Furthermore, Camellia Oil possesses a unique active constituent known as Squalene. Squalene is an important component of the skin's natural emollient system. A deficiency of Squalene can result in dry skin and premature ageing, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.
Facial Oil – for scarred /inflamed/sensitive skin
Mix 30ml Camellia Oil, 2 drops Rose, 2 German Chamomile, 2 Patchouli and 2 Neroli. Shake well and massage in to the skin following cleansing and toning in the evening. Or use as a face mask - apply a thin layer and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove any excess oil by blotting with tissues.
Foot Treatment - for cracked heels
Mix 30ml Camellia Oil, 5 drops Benzoin, 3 Myrrh and 7 Bergamot. Massage well into heels (following a dry skin rasping session to remove any excess dead skin). Work into heels vigorously and then put on cotton socks to allow the oil to penetrate into the skin.
Deep Hair Conditioning Treatment – for dry/ damaged hair
Use 20-40ml Camellia Oil – depending on hair length. To 40ml add 8 drops Ylang Ylang, 4 Roman Chamomile, 4 Sandalwood and 4 Geranium (half the essential oil quantities for 20ml). This treatment is ideal for dry hair or scalp where hair has lost its body and shine. Combine all the ingredients well and then warm the oil. Massage into the scalp and smooth down the full length of the hair. Cover hair with a plastic shower cap, leave on for 15 – 30 minutes, then wash and condition as normal.
