Fall is here and I am noticing my skin is drinking up the facial oils I make. I don't need them as much in the summer, but right about now, I just soak the moisture up. I have been selling these oils for a few years now (you can read all about them in this blog post) and they are rock solid. I'm really proud of them. I had a wonderful facial recently and the esthetician was very complementary of my skin and asked what I used— I was so happy to tell her it's what I make.
For my skin, I like to switch between the Restorative and the Nourishing blend. For my hands, I keep an extra Cuticle Oil in my car, which is when I notice how dry my nails are. I'm not sure why. It also makes the car smell nice. The car doen't always smell nice. And I keep a bottle of the Tension Relif Oil in my bag, for that out-in-the-world tension which seems to come up.
This Treatment Oil for Eyes has been a multi-tasker lately. I have been using it not just under my eyes but on my eyelid where I had a little dry patch. It cleared it right up. My Mom uses this between her eyebrows for dry patches she gets in the fall and it works like charm.
Another use for an oil— when Pete was growing his beard, he was getting ingrown hairs and bumps and he got obsessed with the Fortifying Hair Oil using it as a beard oil (it also has a nice woodsy smell which guys dig) to condition his facial hair and help with skin sensitivities. He said it was amazing and got instant relief with skin itchies while softening his beard. Beard is such a funny word.
I think about adding more products to this line, but to be honest, I'm so happy with what I sell and have been using it for so long, I just don't know what else would be needed. There are three products I use but don't sell that I really like: a roll-on blemish oil (this was developed for the girls to be extra gentle) a cleansing oil, and a facial mist. And now I'm thinking of making a dedicated Beard Oil, (I'd just push the Fortifying Hair Oil but the label has a lady on it, which is probably not the best marketing for a beard oil.) I also wear a wonderful perfume oil that I've blended that I could sell which is so very earthy-hippie—I just love it.
Any thoughts? Would you all be interested in these?
