"I tried the Bentonite Clay last night and left it overnight. It was unintentional, actually! I guess I was tired from my trip and slept off.

I woke up and washed it off to reveal an oil-free skin. I applied the Natural Moisturiser & Toner (Spot-Less) and my skin is still less oily than it usually is."

Thanks Kristin!

Haven't found anything as good in the market and it really works. Usually my skin is terrible after flying but since using the oil don't have that problem anymore."

Quick Fact: Over-cleansing your face can damage your skin

by noreply@blogger.com (Precious Me) @ Precious Me

I think that this is the most common mistake we make when it comes to skin care. It is easy to assume that the cleaner your face, the healthier it will be so we tend to over do it when it comes to face cleansing. In reality, our skin needs sebum to be healthy, but if you're stripping too much of it away in your daily face cleansing routine, then it's likely you're doing more harm than good. When you strip your skin of its natural oils, you compromise its barrier, which can set you up for irritation and dehydration.

 Don't wash your face with cleansers more than twice a day, and choose cleansers with gentle and skin nourishing formulations. Avoid cleansers that contain harsh surfactants, which rid skin of too much oil and leave it so dry that it feels taut—and might just squeak if you dragged a finger across it. Some common surfactants include sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES), and ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS). Instead of these, look for gentler cleaning agents, which may be glucose-based or derived from coconut oil. They can take off makeup but still maintain skin’s suppleness. These include coco betaine, cocamidopropyl betaine, coco glucoside, decyl glucoside, and sucrose laurate. And if you use cleanser at night, a quick splash of cool water alone will suffice in the morning, unless of course your nighttime moisturiser or serum is a heavy one, then you will need a gentle cleanser to remove any excess product, if any. (However, if you’re a morning gym-goer, you’ll need to cleanse again, since sweat can clog pores.) For midday greasiness, try oil-blotting papers or waterless cleansing wipes.

Personally, I use the oil cleansing method as a night cleanser, and 'madu kelulut' (stingless bee honey) as my morning cleanser. This honey does not irritate my skin or cause redness like conventional honey, and really keeps my skin supple without any dry or taut feeling. Since I have dry and sensitive skin, I find that any soap based cleansers (even the most natural ones) dries out my skin. It did take awhile for my skin to adjust to my OCM and honey cleansing routine, but after about 2 weeks my skin transformed from being dry to being balanced. Plus, I no longer feel like I have to apply so much moisturizer anymore! Before, my skin was either too dry from not enough moisturizer or too oily from too much, so I'm really glad now that I have finally found an all natural routine that works for me!

Chill Pill
Bought this from you some time back. Have been using it on occasion when i need some aromatherapy.. hehe... Has a very calming fragance that is great in reducing stress, and was a life saver during exam periods when i used it everyday. It is way better than any other perfumes i've tried as i can't stand the alcohol smell in commercial perfumes as the alcohol tends to irritate my nose. Not sure about how long a bottle will last though as the bottle is covered so i'm not sure how much is left, maybe you could leave a small opening on the wrapping so users would be able to track usage? Other then that tiny complain, still the best perfume i've got =).. Oh and i sometimes put it on my pillow before i sleep at night too... hehe

Silk and Pearl Powder
Got this from the bazaar from you sometime back. Am not really a fan of powder usually as i don't even use any foundation or cover powder, hehe.. Have been using this on occasion as a night powder for treatment of my eczema. Would put it on after treatment cream and i've noticed that it actually speeds up the recovery process. I've also noticed that somehow it moisturises the skin, never found a powder that could do that. It lasts pretty long too, at least for me as i use it very sparingly.

Aloe vera and Silk Conditioning Mist
The sample you gave me was sooo great that i just purchased another bottle! lol... It really make my skin super smooth ad works great with Nourish Me 2-in-1 Moisturizer & Toner. Was curious and a bit restless to try out the new bottle so otw home i sprayed a bit of the bottle i just bought from you on my hand. I've noticed that that the skin became extra smooth as compared to my other hand.. hahaha... Even my boyfriend said it was smoother.. lol..

Thanks Verona! Will improve on the eau de parfums packaging for the next batch.

The Independent

If you’ve never used one before, cleaning your face with oil may seem counterintuitive, but it is a really effective way to dissolve make-up (even waterproof mascara) and grime without stripping moisture from the skin and leaving you with that squeaky-clean, tight feeling that many foaming cleansers do. They also suit all skin types, being brilliant for removing excess sebum from pores for oily, breakout-prone skin and conditioning for dry areas.

Pregnancy and Essential OIls

by noreply@blogger.com (Precious Me) @ Precious Me

Following an inquiry from a customer about the safety of using essential oils during pregnancy, I thought Id post some information to share with all...

Is it safe to use essential oils while pregnant?

It's safe to use some essential oils while you're pregnant, as long as you're healthy and you're careful with them. Essential oils are highly concentrated substances extracted from plants. They are powerful, so it's important to use them sparingly.

Essential oils are used in aromatherapy, which is a complementary therapy. The oils contain chemicals which can be absorbed into your body. Essential oils can be diluted with a base or carrier oil for massage, or put in a vapouriser for you to breathe them in. Once inside your body, they work in the same way as drugs or medicines. Because essential oil molecules are very small, there is a possibility that they may cross the placenta and reach your growing baby's circulation.

We do not know exactly what effect essential oils may have on a developing baby. Studies have only tested oils on animals, with varying results. It's most likely that you would need to use huge amounts of essential oils before they could do any harm to your baby.

We do know that many mums-to-be find aromatherapy helpful in easing pregnancy niggles. These include backache, nausea or swollen ankles. If you want to use aromatherapy oils, it's a good idea to take the following precautions:

  • Only use one or two drops of essential oil at a time.
  • Dilute the essential oil by mixing the drops with at least a teaspoon (5ml) of a base oil before you add it to a bath or massage it into your skin. Grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil work well as base oils 9max 2% concentration).
  • You can add drops of the oil to a vapouriser, but don't leave it on for longer than 10 or 15 minutes in each hour. If you leave it on for too long, the smell can be overpowering and make you feel nauseous.
  • It's best to start using essential oils once you are past the first trimester. If you use them in the first trimester, always consult an aromatherapist who's trained in treating mums-to-be.

*emmenagogue - Certain essential oils have the ability to assist in promoting menstruation (menses) and regulating the monthly discharge, but although these oils are very helpful in treating problems of this nature, some of them should be avoided in pregnancy.

**Do note that all of Back to Basics products can be custom blended to contain less or no essential oils upon request.

What is Aromatherapy?

by noreply@blogger.com (Precious Me) @ Precious Me

Aromatherapy is derived from the ancient practice of using natural plant essences to promote health and wellbeing. It consists of the use of pure essential oils obtained from a wide assortment of plants, which have been steam distilled or cold-pressed from flowers, fruit, bark and roots.



Aromatherapy can help ease a wide assortment of ailments; easing aches, pains, and injuries, while relieving the discomforts of many health problems.



Aromatherapy also acts on the central nervous system, relieving depression and anxiety, reducing stress, relaxing, uplifting, sedating or stimulating, restoring both physical and emotional wellbeing.



The appropriate oils can have powerful results, both on the body and the spirit. "Fragrance Oils", "Perfumes" and other artificially made substitutes for Pure Essential Oils can not produce these amazing results.



You might ask "Does Aromatherapy Really Work"?



The answer is YES! Pure Essential Oils are prescribed in Great Britain and throughout Europe for their medicinal benefits. Modern scientific research has proven the potency and healing qualities of Pure Essential Oils.



Many of the oils have powerful antibacterial and antiviral qualities which, unlike pharmaceutical drugs, do not leave behind dangerous toxins.



How Do Essential Oils Affect Our Minds and Our Emotions?


Essential oils affect our minds and our emotions. All aromas have a potential emotional impact that can reach deep into the psyche, both relaxing the mind and uplifting the Spirit.
Our sense of smell is estimated to be 10,000 times more acute than our other senses and sensitive to some 10,000 chemical compounds. Once registered, scent travels faster to the brain than either sight or sound.



Of Science and Anatomy - How Essential Oils Affect Our Minds



When we inhale the fragrance of an essential oil, the odor molecules travel up the nose where they’re registered by the nerves of the olfactory membranes in the nose lining. The odor molecules stimulate this lining of nerve cells and trigger electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory bulb then transmits the impulses to the amygdala - where emotional memories are stored - and to other parts of the limbic system of the brain.
Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects… Olfactory responses to odors induce the brain to stimulate the release of hormones and neurochemicals that in turn alter the body’s physiology and behavior.


Essential Oil Desk Reference, 4th Edition



The limbic lobe is a group of brain structures situated directly below the cerebral cortex of the brain and includes the hippocampus and the amygdala. It’s capable of directly activating the hypothalamus - often referred to as the “master gland.” This gland is one of the most important parts of the brain and acts as the hormonal control center. The hypothalamus releases hormones that can affect everything from sex drive to energy levels. The production of growth hormones, sex hormones, thyroid hormones, and neurotransmitters such as serotonin, are all governed by the hypothalamus.



Because of their fragrance and unique molecular structure, essential oils can directly stimulate the limbic lobe and the hypothalamus. Inhalation of essential oils can be used to alleviate stress and emotional trauma. It can also be used to stimulate the production of hormones from the hypothalamus. This stimulation may increase production of thyroid hormones (our energy hormone) and growth hormones (our youth and longevity hormone).



The Emotional Brain Responds Only to Smell



The area of the brain known as the amygdala plays a major role in storing and releasing emotional trauma. The only way to stimulate this gland is with fragrance or through the sense of smell. In other words - the emotional brain responds only to smell and not to words that are read, spoken, heard, or felt by Braille. Our sense of smell links directly to emotional states and behaviors often stored since childhood.



Smell is the only one of the five physical senses that is directly linked to the limbic lobe of the brain - our emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger, and joy all physically originate from this region. A certain fragrance can evoke memories and emotions before we are even consciously aware of it. When smells are concerned, we react first and think later. All other physical senses are routed through the thalamus, which acts as the switchboard for the brain, passing stimuli onto the cerebral cortex (the conscious thought center) and other parts of the brain.



Essential oils enable us to access stored or forgotten memories and suppressed emotions so that we can acknowledge and integrate or release them. The word “emotions” can translate as “energy-in-motion.” Emotion is the experience of energy moving though our bodies. This emotional energy actually works at higher speed than thought. Thought and images can take seconds or minutes to evoke a memory while an aroma can evoke a memory in milliseconds.



Forgotten memories and suppressed emotions can wreak havoc in our lives; often being the unsourced causes of depression, anxiety and fears. Essential oils can help us surface and release these emotions wherever they are stored in the body or energy field.

1. Aloe & Silk (with Pearl) Conditioning Mist
I started using this "miracle" mist a few days ago every night after my cleansing routine and i've already noticed visible softness and a clearer complexion. Easy to use, and refreshing, this is a must have to perk and freshen the face, transforming it from dull and lifeless to renewed and supple. It works great on hair too, especially on dry split ends. I use it before blow drying my tresses to prevent direct heat damage from constant blow drying. Great product!!
 
2. Coconut Almond & Silk Body Scrub
This easy to use and "yummy" smelling bodyscrub has got to be my favourite! Used once a week, I simply add fresh milk and a few drops of virgin coconut oil before mixing it to apply on my body. It smells heavenly and works well too! the dry cocount flakes and poppy seed is gentle to my skin yet it does the "scrubbing" work pretty nicely. I heard it works great when mixed with fresh yogurt too, so that's definitely on my list the next time I use this. Thumbs up for scent and purpose! Love this.
 
3. Pure Bentonite Clay
This mask is simple and stays true to it's function. Mositurises and firms skin. Just a dash of the powdered clay mix with water and leave it on for 10 minutes; that's all it takes. I use this twice a week and have noticed visibly shrunken pores and less oily T-zone. I can feel the skin tighten once applied, however it doesnt "break" like other clay masks I've used, thus this is not a messy affair and is a plus point, especially for those who leave the mask on throughout the night. Highly recommended :)
 
Thanks Parveen!
