The mechanism behind oil application to the skin goes far beyond moisturizing and supporting its elasticity. In Ayurveda, there is an inherent connection between enveloping the body in oil and enveloping it in love (in Sanskrit, the word sneha can be translated as both “oil” and “love”). Most traditional Ayurvedic body therapies utilize warm medicated oils for general rejuvenation, with the understanding that the qualities of oil (heavy, moist, warm) are antidotes for the typical aging process where the body naturally becomes lighter, dryer and colder. This facial oil is carefully handcrafted in small batches with powerful medicinal herbs infused into jojoba oil (the most similar to the skin’s sebum in composition, and therefore, most easily absorbable). Exquisite carrot seed, rosehip seed and vitamin E oils have been added as antioxidants, anti-aging agents, and collagen boosters respectively.
