Facial Care

From the Essential Oils Desk Reference 7th Edition

The Body’s Largest Organ: The Skin

With skin covering approximately 22 square feet on the outside surface of the human body, it is the largest human organ and the first line of defense against harmful substances, infections, and dehydration. In adults, the skin is between 15 and 20 percent of total body weight.

Because of its large surface area, the skin can soak in many types of toxins and petrochemicals. This can result in cancer-causing compounds leaching into the body and accumulating in fat.

Many people complain that commercial soaps make their skin feel dry and itchy, or worse. Trapped “free alkali” is the most common irritant in soap, which is made from oils (acids) mixed with water and alkali (a base).

Acids and bases neutralize each other to form salt, in this case soap, with glycerin as a byproduct.

Oils that do not combine with the alkali are “free,” which creates a “superfatted” soap. These mild soaps are exceptionally good for the skin, even though they have a reduced lather and shelf life. Alkali that is not neutralized by essential oils is “free alkali,” which makes soaps harsh and drying.

What are your options?
Orange Blossom Face Wash-This gentle, soap-free facial wash cleanses the skin without stripping natural oils. It contains MSM for softening and Lavender essential oil to soothe skin. I love how it makes my face feel.

Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil


It is finally FALL and guess what that means in our house… Lots of yummy cooking and delicious smells and full bellies! One of my favorite essential oils to cook with throughout the Fall season is Cinnamon Bark Vitality—which is FREE during the month of October when you place an order of at least 100PV.

Cinnamon Bark Vitality has a unique, delicious, spicy flavor and did you know that Cinnamon Bark Vitality can not only help maintain a healthy immune system, but also supports the digestive system. This actually makes a lot of sense because, as we discussed last month, 70-80% of our immune system lives in our digestive tract.

Cinnamon Bark Vitality is very high in the naturally occurring chemical constituent Trans-Cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde is a flavonoid and is what gives cinnamon it’s flavor and odor. Cinnamon is known to be loaded with antioxidants and Cinnamon Bark essential oil is steam distilled from the outer parts of the bark of the cinnamon tree.

There are so many ways I love to use Cinnamon Bark Vitality in the kitchen: a tiny drop in mashed sweet potatoes, a little in my pumpkin pie recipe, a wonderful addition to Einkorn Pumpkin Bread, and finally, it is wonderful to add a drop to roasted pumpkin seeds—we will share this recipe later in the month.

As a quick reminder, because essential oils are 100-10,000 time more potent than herbs, I would always start small when cooking with essential oils; you don’t want to overpower your recipe. I love to use a toothpick. I simply dip it in the orifice of the essential oil, and then I am able to start small and grow the flavor of the dish little by little.

There is no wrong way to cook or bake with Cinnamon Bark Vitality and I am excited for you to experience this wonderful essential oil in your kitchen this Fall!
