Ingredient Properties & Benefits

The safety and toxicity of all ingredients has been carefully reviewed and selected for their generally acceptable problem-free safety profile. Owing to the concentrated nature of essential oils, only the lowest possible amounts that have a beneficial effect on the skin have been used.

To test the products on the skin, use a small amount on the inner forearm. If no reaction is detected use as instructed. Some products contain ingredients that stimulate the circulation. This effect may result in a feeling of warmth or pink colouration of the skin in the area tested. This effect should dissipate with 10-15 minutes. Discontinue further use if this effect persists.
