Brrrrr, there was frost on the grass this morning! The temperatures went below freezing last night again. I guess there’s no stopping this winter thing. So I’m trying to get ready for the dryness that cold weather brings and keep my skin in good shape for the holidays.
I love oils, and recently I received Indie Lee Patchouli Sandalwood Moisturizing Oil to try out. I adore both scents – patchouli and sandalwood – and some ylang ylang has been added to the heady brew.
But in case you’re not as big a patchouli and sandalwood fan as I am, Indie Lee Moisturizing Oils come in two other scents: Lavender Chamomile and Vanilla Citrus, both of which can be used as a natural insect repellent. Pretty cool, huh?
Since I’ve got Patchouli Sandalwood Moisturizing Oil, let’s talk about that one. The golden blend of Pogostemon Cablin (patchouli) and Santalum Album (sandalwood) does a bunch of good things besides smell good:
- decreases inflammation
- evens skin tone
- relieves stress
- helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Patchouli Sandalwood Moisturizing Oil is described on the Indie Lee website as: “A hydrating, all-purpose oil… Formulated with jojoba oil which is closest to the skin’s natural sebum, apricot oil to soothe and hydrate, and sandalwood, known for its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Ideal for all skin.”
What’s also cool about this oil is it can be used on the face, body and hair. I use the Indie Lee Patchouli Sandalwood Moisturizing Oil primarily after shower on my body when my skin is feeling dry and also when I need to de-stress. I pump a few drops into my hands and apply to my damp skin to moisturize as well as to seal in moisture. I plan to try it on my hair after shampooing soon because my hair can always use more moisture to tame flyways and because the scent is fabulous.
Indie Lee Moisturizing Oils come in elegant, slim, heavy glass, clear pump bottles. Each contains 4 oz. and is priced at $36. The bottle is huge. And I only use a few drops at a time. This beautiful bottle will last me quite a while!
Indie Lee started her all-natural, vegan skincare collection after she was diagnosed with a brain tumor that was attributed to environmental toxins. In 2009, she began work on her extensive line of “eco-chic” products. And she’s dedicated to helping educate people about safety in the skincare products they use. In addition to information on her products, the Indie Lee website has a list of “good ingredients” and what they do, and “bad ingredients” to avoid and why. Definitely visit these lists by clicking on the links. They’re eye-opening! Look at the ingredient list for the product I’m using. There are no fillers, nothing scary-sounding, just natural oils. Love this!
