Ayurvedic Oil: Amla (Unscented)

Traditional Ayurvedic oils were once created by steeping a special selection of Ayurvedic herbs in water to create a strong herbal infusion. This water was then added to oil, usually sesame or coconut oil, and the oil was then gently warmed until all of the moisture was evaporated. Modern supercritical fluid extraction methods allow us to produce a more potent extract and infusion.

The amla fruit, also known as the Indian Gooseberry, comes from a small tree that grows throughout India. The tree is worshipped as Mother Nature due to its nourishing fruit. The fruit is one of the highest natural sources of vitamin C. The amla fruit yields an extract that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to treat the hair and scalp. Amla Oil is said to nourish the scalp and strengthen hair at its root, to stop and reverse abnormal hair loss and to promote stronger, healthier hair.

Our Ayurvedic Amla Oil is made by infusing cold pressed sesame oil with CO2 extracted amla fruit extract. It is an excellent conditioner to use as a hot oil treatment. Use Amla Oil in shampoos, conditioning rinses, hair pomades and oil treatments.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Amla oil may naturally darken or tint hair. Please test in an inconspicuous area before more widespread application.

Green, black, white and oolong tea leaves are harvested from Camellia oleifera and sometimes Camellia sinensis. These species are also popularly known as the Tea Plant. Like the teas made from these species, Camellia Oil exhibits exceptional antioxidant activity. Although Camellia Oil is often referred to as Tea Oil or Tea Seed Oil, it should not be confused with the volatile essential oil of Tea Tree.

The fruit of the camellia consists of several small chambers, each playing host to a number of seeds within it. Camellia seeds contain between 40-50% of nutritive oil that is low in saturated fat.

Approximately 85% of the fatty acid composition contained in Camellia Oil is in the form of monounsaturated oleic acid. Camellia Oil is also a rich source of other omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids plus Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Although the seeds and leaves contain caffeine, caffeine is a water soluble compound that is not present in Camellia Oil.

Historically, Camellia Oil has been the main culinary oil used throughout the southern provinces of China. Camellia Oil has been shown to reduce bad cholesterol. It is a high quality cooking oil that remains stable at high temperatures. It possesses a high smoke point of 485F (251C).

Evening Primrose Oil is an exceptionally nourishing oil for the skin because it is high in in the essential fatty acid known as gamma-linolenic acid. The human body does not produce essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. It, therefore, is important to obtain these nutrients through diet and topical application. Essential fatty acids inhibit bacterial growth and allow our systems to defend against infection and inflammation. Evening Primrose Oil is recommended for dry skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. It is a nourishing addition to facial blend, cream, lotion and balm formulations.

Oil: Flax Seed

Flax Seed Oil is a nourishing addition to formulations intended to help treat eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne and aging skin. Flax seeds are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) an the Omega-3 series of essential fatty acids.

ALA is needed because it is the precursor to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and the series 3 Prostaglandins. These are necessary for the regulation of cellular activity. Series 3 Prostaglandins protect the body against the effects of high blood pressure, inflammation and water retention by inhibiting the production of series 2 prostaglandins, which promote inflammation and water retention. Topical use of Flax Oil allows the body to absorb some of the essential fatty acids necessary for healthy cellular activity. Flax Seed Oil can help soften and heal skin abrasions, reduce the swelling and redness of lesions due to skin disease and improve the overall health of the skin. Use Flax Seed Oil in creams, lotions and balm formulations. Flax Seed Oil is fragile. Any formulation using Flax Seed Oil must be well preserved with an antioxidant.

Use Meadowfoam Seed Oil in lotion bars and lip balms to extend the shelf life. Meadowfoam oil makes a very moisturizing bar of soap when it is used as a superfatting agent. It is often used as a binder, and it may help extend fragrances better than other oils when used in bath salts, soaps and massage oils.

Oil: Monoi de Tahiti

Monoi de Tahiti is a precious and exotic cosmetic oil, manufactured in Polynesia, according to a French Government Decree, which explicitly describes the process by which this oil must be made. The oil is created by soaking/macerating 10 Tiare flowers, which must come from French Polynesia, per litre of refined coconut oil for a minimum of 10 days. Our authentic Monoi de Tahiti carries an Appellation of Origin guarantee and is produced under very controlled manufacturing methods to ensure the highest quality oil.

Monoi de Tahiti is an extraordinary oil for skin and hair care. It has been shown to penetrate and hydrate the skin rapidly and reduce trans-epidermal water loss. Use Monoi de Tahiti in creams, lotion, soap and experiment with it in all of your formulations.

Important Note: Our Monoi de Tahiti Oil possesses a light, natural aroma of coconut oil that has been imparted with a delicate floral aroma of the Tiare flowers that have been macerated into the coconut oil.

Oil: Moringa

The Moringa tree is referred to as the miracle tree because all parts of the tree are utilized for their considerable pharmacological and nutritional value.

Moringa Oil possesses exceptional oxidative stability and has a shelf life of up to 5 years.

Moringa Oil is a highly stable, penetrating oil. Rich in antioxidants including Vitamin A, it helps to improve the appearance and radiance of the skin and is a remarkably nutritive addition to facial creams, anti-wrinkle serums, anti-aging formulations, lip care products, hair products, make-up, sun care preparations, shaving products, massage and other cosmetic formulations. Its antioxidant activity may help to defend against free radicals. Moringa Oil is regarded as a cleansing oil because it helps to rid the scalp and hair of dirt and foreign residue.

Neem Oil is used to treat skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, ringworm, scabies, syphilitic sores, and chicken pox. Neem Oil can eliminate lice, repel bugs and control dandruff. In toothpaste, Neem Oil helps relieve swollen and bleeding gums and kills the bacteria that causes gingivitis.

Add Neem Oil to liquid soap base for an anti-bacterial hand soap. Use it in bug repellent lotion bars to keep the bugs away. Use it in pet soaps to kill and repel fleas and to treat hot spots. Neem Oil can be emulsified with liquid soap and then sprayed on plants to keep insects from devouring the leaves.

Natural Neem Oil has an extremely potent aroma. The aroma of Neem is herbaceous, bitter, and extremely tenacious. Some don't mind the aroma, and others find it displeasing. Wash your hands thoroughly after use to help avoid transferring the smell to other objects. Though Neem's aroma is extremely potent, it does tone down considerably if used in cold process soap or other formulations.

Neem Powder can be used in a foot bath powder to kill fungus and bacteria. Mixed with clay, it makes a great facial for those with acne or other skin problems.

Oat Oil is comprised of saponins that contribute to Oat Oil's ability to provide some protection against UVB rays. Oat Oil can be added to any formulation to add protection against the sun. Please note, however, that you will not be able to determine the exact SPF of your product without testing and you cannot market SPF products without a license to do so. The usage of Oat Oil on the skin is not the equivalent of using a properly formulated SPF product. Many factors are involved in how a product works as a sunscreen including absorption rate and viscosity of the formulation.

Our Oat Oil is highly stable, is light in viscosity, has a subtle characteristic oat aroma and is pale yellow in color. It is extracted using ethanol from Non-GMO oats.

Recommended Usage Rate: 1-5%

Oil: Olive, Grade A

Olive Oil is high in oleic acid and is a good skin cell regenerator. It is traditionally included within soap, cream, balm, body butter, herbal infusion and hair care formulations. Olive Oil attracts external moisture to the skin and still permits the skin to properly release sweat, shed dead skin and release sebum. It is a good oil for inclusion in massage oil formulations and it helps to sooth inflamed skin. Within soap making applications, soap makers often prefer Grade A Olive Oil to pomace because the high percentage of unsaponifiables in pomace can cause it to saponify too quickly or overreact with other ingredients such as fragrance and essential oils. Grade A Olive Oil will also give you a whiter bar than pomace.

Oil: Pomace Olive

In cold process soap making, some soapers prefer using Pomace Oil instead of Grade A Olive Oil. Pomace Oil is solvent extracted from previous pressings of olives using the skins and pits (pomace). Pomace Oil has a high percentage of unsaponifiables, and it tends to draw the oils into a quick saponification. Use caution when using Pomace Oil with fragrance oils or Grapefruit Seed Extract as both speed up the saponification process.

Please note, however, that you will not be able to determine the exact SPF of your product without testing and you cannot market SPF products without a license to do so. The usage of Red Raspberry Seed Oil on the skin is not the equivalent of using a properly formulated SPF product. Many factors are involved in how a product works as a sunscreen including absorption rate and viscosity of the formulation.

Oil: Vitamin E, Natural, Non-GMO (1000IU/g)

Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin composed of eight naturally occurring compounds. The fractions are called alpha, beta, delta, epsilon, eta, gamma and zeta tocopherol, and four other substances called tocotrienols. While each of these compounds exhibits different biological activities, d-alpha tocopherol has the highest biological activity and is the most widely available form of vitamin E in food.

Since the alpha tocopherol activity is most responsible for the effectiveness of the product, the potency of Vitamin E oil is measured by its alpha tocopherol content. It is important to known the IU of the vitamin E oil you are using. A 200 IU/g Vitamin E contains 200 units of alpha tocopherol per gram of oil and the rest of it is unspecified amounts of the beta, delta, epsilon and other components. 1 international unit (IU) of vitamin E is equal to 1 mg of the synthetic form racemic alpha tocopherol acetate.

While the alpha tocopherol can be isolated from the other components, studies have shown that it is more stable and has a longer shelf life when it is in its original family structure with its non-alpha tocopherols unless it is transformed into tocopheryl. Furthermore, the full activity of the other fractions is still unknown, and some manufacturers of vitamin E prefer to preserve the natural form.

The most important and well known biological function of vitamin E is related to its antioxidant properties. Internally, Vitamin E is the most effective antioxidant in the biological membrane. It protects cellular structures against damage from free radicals and the byproducts of fat peroxidation. It acts as a free radical scavenger to prevent the byproducts of chemical-cell interaction that causes cell damage. Vitamin E may help to decrease the toxicity of certain chemotherapy drugs.

When used topically, Vitamin E may decrease some of the harmful effects of solar radiation on the skin. It is commonly used in lotions or creams for burn treatment. It is also helpful to treat burns secondary to radiation therapy.

Vitamin E oil is often prescribed for topical use in pregnant women to prevent stretch marks on the abdomen. More recently, it has been used to prevent or treat mucositis resulting from chemotherapy. It can help heal acne, promote wound healing and prevent scarring from eczema or psoriasis. Topical vitamin E moisturizes the skin from within, reduces UV induced damage, helps to protect against ozone damage and decreases erythema (redness of the skin) after sun exposure. This makes it appropriate for use in sun care products including lip balms.

Since the alpha tocopherol is responsible for repairing, healing and protecting skin, use the high alpha tocopherol Natural Vitamin E Oil (250, 1000, or 1400 IU) in your skin care formulations for skin softening/healing purposes.

A 200 IU/g Vitamin E contains 200 units of alpha tocopherol per gram of oil and the rest of it is unspecified amounts of the beta, delta, epsilon and other components. 1 international unit (IU) of vitamin E is equal to 1 mg of the synthetic form racemic alpha tocopherol acetate.

While the alpha tocopherol can be isolated from the other components, studies have shown that it is more stable and has a longer shelf life when it is in its original family structure with its non-alpha tocopherols unless it is transformed into tocopheryl. Furthermore, the full activity of the other fractions is still unknown, and some manufacturers of vitamin E prefer to preserve the natural form.

The most important and well known biological function of vitamin E is related to its antioxidant properties. Internally, Vitamin E is the most effective antioxidant in the biological membrane. It protects cellular structures against damage from free radicals and the byproducts of fat peroxidation. It acts as a free radical scavenger to prevent the byproducts of chemical-cell interaction that causes cell damage. Vitamin E may help to decrease the toxicity of certain chemotherapy drugs.

When used topically, Vitamin E may decrease some of the harmful effects of solar radiation on the skin. It is commonly used in lotions or creams for burn treatment. It is also helpful to treat burns secondary to radiation therapy.

Vitamin E oil is often prescribed for topical use in pregnant women to prevent stretch marks on the abdomen. More recently, it has been used to prevent or treat mucositis resulting from chemotherapy. It can help heal acne, promote wound healing and prevent scarring from eczema or psoriasis. Topical vitamin E moisturizes the skin from within, reduces UV induced damage, helps to protect against ozone damage and decreases erythema (redness of the skin) after sun exposure. This makes it appropriate for use in sun care products including lip balms.

Since the alpha tocopherol is responsible for repairing, healing and protecting skin, use the high alpha tocopherol Natural Vitamin E Oil (250, 1000, or 1400 IU) in your skin care formulations for skin softening/healing purposes.

Oil: Vitamin E, Natural, Non-GMO (400 IU/g)

Non-GMO.

Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin composed of eight naturally occurring compounds. The fractions are called alpha, beta, delta, epsilon, eta, gamma and zeta tocopherol, and four other substances called tocotrienols. While each of these compounds exhibits different biological activities, d-alpha tocopherol has the highest biological activity and is the most widely available form of vitamin E in food.

Resin: Sangre de Drago (Liquid Extract)

Sangre de Drago, also known as Dragon's Blood, is extracted from a medium to large sized tree that grows in the tropics and in the Amazonian regions of South America. When the trunk of the tree is cut or wounded, it exudes a dark, red sap or resin that resembles blood. It possesses a deep, rich, distinctive aroma. The curative powers of this thick resin and tree bark were well known by indigenous tribes of Mexico, Peru and Ecuador. They painted the sap onto their skin to help stop bleeding, protect wounds and promote healing. The antiseptic sap dries quickly, forming a seal over wounded skin, preventing infection and allowing the skin to heal. In tribal medicine, the Sangre De Drago sap was used both externally and also internally, to heal wounds, stomach ulcers, throat infections, mouth ulcers, skin afflictions and insect bites. The sap is additionally believed to be useful as an antiherpes agent. These ethnomedical applications of the sap have been confirmed by both in vitro and in vivo studies.

The wound healing abilities of Sangre de Drago Liquid Resin Extract, are attributed to its active constituents: proanthocyanadins (antioxidants), a lignan called dimethylcedrusine, and an alkaloid called taspine. Taspine has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antisarcomic, antiviral, antitumor and cicatrizing properties. Studies have also shown that Sangre de Drago Liquid Resin Extract can help contract a wound, form a crust at the wound site, assist in the formatiom of collagen and regenerate skin cells. This unique combination of anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and cicatrizing properties make the resin an exceptional ingredient in formulations intended for healing skin abrasions, wounds, burns, eczema and rashes.

Sangre de Drago Liquid Resin Extract is kept free-flowing with the addition of 10% ethyl alcohol.

"I just received an order that I placed for fragrance oils. Thank you so much. I placed my order the Friday afternoon before a Holiday weekend and received it the following Tuesday. I was so happy. And then when I opened it, my happiness graduated to elation. I love the fragrances. I have actually experienced them before, but these are so much richer. Also I appreciate the care taken to ensure that the bottles would be safe and not leak. I look forward to placing many more orders *walking away to fill out applications for a 2nd job to support FNWL habit. Thanks again!"
