SOME QUESTIONS THAT WE MAY ASK:
 
What are lymph and the lymphatic system?


Lymph is a liquid found in the body that is used to transport body waste and destroy germs. Unlike blood, it can circulate in our body thanks to the movements generated by muscle contractions. Good lymph circulation has many positive effects on the body (especially the elimination of cellulite), but also on the face. Using treatments containing essential oils that help revive or drain the lymphatic system helps decongest, brighten the complexion, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and eliminate certain toxins present in the skin.
It is also possible to stimulate the lymphatic system through precise massages, facial exercises or by using natural stone rollers.


Why stimulate facial blood circulation?


Improving facial blood circulation helps fight dark circles, dark spots and dry skin. Good blood circulation contributes to a fresh and healthy face. Guaranteed good-looking effect!

What does an astringent essential oil mean?


An astringent essential oil tightens the skin tissue. Thus, it restores tone and, consequently, makes it possible to limit and reduce sagging skin.

Why use anti-inflammatory essential oil care?

The skin naturally becomes inflamed to protect and regenerate in the face of multiple external aggressions. In general, this type of inflammation is short-lived, but due to constant attacks (pollution, UV, toxins, cold), it can become permanent. The skin then enters a vicious circle between protection and reaction. Inflammations are responsible for the appearance of oxidative stress that the skin tries to make disappear by igniting its tissues. This reaction is invisible to the naked eye but causes premature skin aging. Using anti-inflammatory, calming and / or soothing active ingredients is a solution to soothe these inflammations and prevent the onset of chronic inflammation.

Essential oils and pregnant women?

All essential oils are not recommended for pregnant women, it will depend on the type of essential oil used but also on the frequency and dosage of use. When a cosmetic product is released on the market, a toxicological test is carried out to assess, among other things, the risk / toxicity for pregnant women. With us, the products not recommended can be identified by the pictogram of a crossed out pregnant woman and it is also written on the packaging. Do not hesitate to call the manufacturers of your products to ask them.
