Paris & Aromatherapy

Paris & Aromatherapy

Last month when I was spending a weekend in Paris, I felt inspired by this beautiful city to create a blog post about Aromatherapy and Skincare.

Paris & Aromatherapy

Paris is a world leader in cosmetic and beauty.

In Paris, the use of natural oils as part of skincare and aromatherapy is everywhere!

Here are some of my Favourite Oils and how to use them-

Argan Oil

Argan oil comes from the kernels of the Argan tree in Morocco.

Rich in vitamins A & E, Anti-oxidants and linoleic acid (Omega 6)

Argan oil main properties:

  • Anti-inflammatory (this can help for clearing Acne)
  • Moisturisers the skin with Anti-ageing effects
  • Boosts cells production (promoting healthy skin and hair)
  • Absorbers quickly (doesn’t leave the skin oily)

Natural Oils - How To Use & When?

  • As a moisturiser – on clean skin, preferably damp after a shower, place a drop of oil on the skin and massage it into the skin in circular movements.
    Repeat every day before bedtime for maximum result.
  • Leave-in conditioner – nourishes split ends, tames frizzy hair and promotes shiny hair.
    Use on clean hair, one drop on the ends.
  • Hair treatment – Promote hair growth and fight dandruff and dry scalp.
    Before the shower, massage your hair from the roots to the ends with Argan oil, cover with a towel, wait for half an hour and then use shampoo and condition as usual.
    Repeat whenever your hair feels too dry.
