Folks usually ask me what my favourite Osmia merchandise are, and it virtually appears like making an attempt to decide on a favourite daughter—unimaginable! Since I formulated all of the merchandise, I clearly love all of them sufficient to make them a part of our choice. However there are a couple of merchandise I take advantage of each single day for pretty particular causes, so I’ll share these, and I will throw in a couple of different all-time favorites for good measure.
This was the primary facial cleaning soap I created, however that’s not why it holds a famous person place in my coronary heart. The rationale I like this cleaning soap is due to a pesky pores and skin situation I’ve referred to as perioral dermatitis, and the best way my pores and skin began exhibiting indicators that my perioral dermatitis was therapeutic after I began utilizing it! Since then, this facial cleaning soap has helped an enormous variety of folks with dermatitis, zits, eczema and different pores and skin points. However do not take my phrase for it—over a thousand critiques on our web site inform the story!
Pores and skin affected by perioral dermatitis (PD) doesn’t like oils or heavy lotions, so I formulated this lotion with soothing, water-soluble aloe vera and a decrease share of oil than most lotions. It penetrates rapidly, leaving the pores and skin nourished with a delicate matte end. There are virtually 900 critiques on our web site for this easy, efficient face cream, so I suppose different folks really feel the identical. Typically I even use a dab of Purely Easy to scrunch in my wavy hair and tame down the frizzies!
After I was in my early 40s, with my dermatitis below good management, I needed a little bit further one thing to maintain my pores and skin hydrated all through the day. Whereas oils themselves usually are not hydrating, a couple of drops of Nectar improve the penetration of Purely Easy to an alarming diploma. I discover that my pores and skin stays tender and supple even on the driest days out within the mountains of Colorado, even now that I am 50!
Nectar can also be a tremendous multitasker. I take advantage of it as a watch make-up remover, a watch remedy, and a glow enhancer—one drop patted onto cheekbones is basically lovely on the pores and skin. And the scent is sort of a journey to a luscious rose backyard, in order that’s one other perk.
My little genie in a bottle. I can actually say there have been at the least thrice after I’ve been flying throughout the nation to an occasion and this superb stuff removed an rising zit whereas the airplane was within the air. It really works rapidly and quietly when utilized each few hours, and it actually packs a punch whilst you sleep. Important oils of cajeput, lemon, lavender, and thyme make the blemish much less offended, whereas the night primrose oil helps maintain the highest layer of pores and skin wholesome reasonably than flaky and dry. It’s nice for ingrown hairs and bug bites, as effectively.
I developed this method after determining that I had turn into allergic to castor oil, which is in virtually each lip product available on the market. It’s my favourite lip product of all time, so I’m virtually glad I developed the allergy! There are not any important oils, so it’s superb for tremendous delicate lips, younger youngsters, and for anybody who doesn’t need their lips to odor like flowers or peppermint! It retains my lips tender and nourished even within the mountain solar and wind, and that’s no straightforward job. Just about anybody who tries Lip Physician falls in love with it!
Each time I open a bar of Lavender Pine Physique Cleaning soap, I ask myself why it has been so lengthy since I opened a bar of Lavender Pine Physique Cleaning soap. (It is as a result of I have been busy utilizing our seasonal Craft Sequence soaps, that are additionally beautiful, however nonetheless.) It is gently scrubby, smells of an alpine lavender backyard, and has the proper quantity of suds. It is superior for the little bumps on the backs of your arms, and makes an amazing reward for anybody with….pores and skin.
We don’t make these, however we promote them they usually’re good. You simply pop your still-wet bar of cleaning soap within the little bag, pull the string tight, and throw it in your suitcase. You possibly can rinse and air dry the bag whenever you get the place you’re going! SO a lot better than a plastic case or a ziploc bag—no gooey mess!!
Whereas I take advantage of Evening most evenings, and it’s such a soothing solution to finish the day, Water is my aromatherapy secret weapon. When I’ve a giant day forward or must really feel like I’m standing on notably strong floor, I attain for Water. The scent of vetiver important oil makes me really feel my roots, and the ginger lily brings a freshness that jogs my memory to not take life (or myself) too significantly!
Lavender can have a pointy, medicinal scent typically, and, whereas I like the aroma, I often mix it with one thing else to melt its edges. However not this lavender. This can be a purple fluffball type of lavender scent from a varietal referred to as “maillette”, and it makes me consider in unicorns and fairies. (I want I had been kidding.) My favourite trick with this or any of our physique mousses is to therapeutic massage it into your ft earlier than you’re employed out, below your socks—you’ll have child unicorn fairy ft whenever you’re finished.
So, there you will have it! These are my favourite Osmia staples, my ride-or-die, desert-island, holy grail pure skincare merchandise. They’ve helped me uncover more healthy, happier pores and skin, and I hope they’re going to do precisely that for you.
