Seeds of Change: Facial Moisture & Renewal Oil

Image of Seeds of Change: Facial Moisture & Renewal Oil

$72.00

Botanical renewal for hardened, sun-damaged, wrinkled, scarred and mature skin. Appropriate for use on face and body. These antioxidant oils pressed from organic seeds help to renew the skin’s surface by encouraging cellular turnover, sloughing off damaged skin cells and promoting an antioxidant response element in the skin. High levels of healthy fatty acids improve over-active inflammatory actions, leaving skin radiant.

A human skin cycle is generally considered to be about 28 days, though it gets longer as we grow older. It takes a mere 28 days for baby cells to mature and then become our outer layer cells before they slough off and become part of the outside world. But this event is not merely a cycle; every time a new cell is created it is slightly changed and does not renew exactly as the time before. Seeds of change is a lovely way to take this opportunity to support your skin in renewing in an upward spiral of health and beauty!

How to begin working Seeds of Change into your rituals and skin care regimen:

For A.R.E. Evening Renewal

• Drip 10-15 drops of Seeds of Change into your palm and apply to the areas of the face and body you wish to address.
• Massage with warm, wet fingertips for as many enjoyable minutes as possible (in the shower is great!) and always remember to remove with a warm, wet washcloth.
• A few times a week, head off to bed without your moisture duo to allow your skin to perform a vital reset as you sleep.
• For best results, do this 3-6 weeks at a time and then go back to NO EVIL or Cow Fart Juice as your oil cleanser.
• Repeat 2-4 times a year.

Weekly Booster:

Follow the directions of A.R.E Evening Renewal one night per week during your "off" times. Keep in mind that we are trying to create a condition that improves during the recovery time. So take the time and recover!

With your weekly exfoliation ritual:

• Apply 1 tsp SYWO mixed with 1 tsp hot water directly on top of Seeds of Change. Massage with wet fingertips and remove with a warm, wet washcloth.

*You know when it is time to return to Nourish & Replenish when you start to notice the glow isn’t as glow-y as when you started. Then you break!

*If you have generally healthy, well functioning skin that has seen a lot of damage in the past and you want to give it a kick start:

Use as part of our "Moisture Duo" in the morning
• Drip 3 - 6 drops of Seeds of Change Oil in your palm and spray 5-8 pumps of your Mineral Mist directly into the oil.
• Massage into face for 1 minute and allow to absorb.
• For best results, do this 3-6 weeks at a time and then go back to Nourish & Replenish Oil. Repeat 2-4 times a year.

Use for oil cleansing or as a pre-cleanser with Sow Your Wild Oats daily for up to six weeks at a time.

Spot Treatment:

Periodically dab a drop onto the areas you wish to address after your moisture duo or mix 1 drop into your coverup during your “on” times.

A Breakdown of all Ingredients:

• Organic Cranberry Seed Oil: Rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin A (essential for healing blemished skin) and other important antioxidants. This certified organic oil possesses a unique balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 EFAs not found in other oils, giving those who use Seeds of Change in the manner we recommend more resilience to cellular degradation in the rebuilding phase.

• Organic Rosehip Seed Oil: In the fall, all of the roses that were not picked from their stems become a small fruit which is the seed that may become the next generation of roses. Our certified Organic Rosehip oil is the oil pressed from these seed-fruits. High in essential fatty acids as well as natural Vitamin C, it has traditionally been used to soften and rejuvenate aging and damaged skin.

• Organic Apricot Kernel Seed Oil: light and skin-softening, apricot kernel oil provides nutrition for the skin as well as protecting against damage caused by free radicals. Rich in Vitamin E and oleic acids, it also helps Seeds of Change provide long lasting hydration retention when used in conjunction with a Mineral Mist.

• Organic Broccoli Seed Oil: Quick to absorb, this precious oil is teeming with high Omega-9 fatty acids and Vitamin A content. This makes the proportions we use in Seeds of Change excellent for encouraging cellular turnover.

• Black Cumin Seed Oil: Nigella sativa is one the most revered medicinal seeds in history. These tiny black cumin seeds provide an all-around super multi-vitamin of nutrition. The ethically-sourced organic seed oil we use is super-supportive of the skin's metabolic function and highly anti-inflammatory.

• Pure Olive Squalene: Similar to the squalane component in human sebum {the substance that humans produce in the oil glands to hold onto hydration}, we use this naturally derived oil as a stable source of protective moisture in Seeds of Change.

1oz and 2oz sizes available.
