Aromatherapy Skincare, why use it

Rowena and I have always preached the virtues of Jewell Skincare. It is aromatherapy skincare, that has quite a small life span (about three months), which means that it is natural and therefore much better for us and our skin. I am sure you are all aware that whatever we put on our skin is absorbed into our blood. We know that “we are what we eat”, so the same can be said for what we put on our skin. When we use aromatherapy oil the oil penetrates into our blood stream which rejuvenates the skin and eliminates waste materials. It helps remove dead cells from the body and will stimulate the growth of new and healthy cells.

If you are afflicted with troublesome skin (like me) it can be extremely frustrating. For me personally my problem skin is hormonal and worsened with pregnancy, however problem skin can be caused by other things like extreme heat, excess makeup and fatty foods. I have tried almost everything to elevate my problem skin, from extreme medicine to generic shop bought products. Whilst the prescribed medicine did work it had so many adverse side effects it wasn’t worth taking. The only other thing that made any difference was Aromatherapy products. And besides – it smells so good.

A very popular Australian made product based on aromatherapy and natural products is Jurlique. Whilst Jurlique is absolutely beautiful and in my younger years I used it on and off for years, it is expensive, and to be honest, with a young family – not affordable. Jewell is an alternative to Jurlique and very reasonably priced. It may not have all the bells and whistles like Jurlique, but it is of extremely high quality (which is why Shimi sells it) and just as luxurious.

Aromatherapy is not just for skin care. One wonderful advantage of aromatherapy is its sanitizing properties and they can easily be used to clean your home, rather than harsh chemicals. I’m sure you have all heard of the mosquito repellent Citronella – another aromatherapy oil.

For such an inexpensive product it has so many advantages. If you have sensitive skin we at Shimi would be glad to talk to you about what may suit you. Please contact us anytime; we would love to hear from you.
