Aloe Ferox Serum
Aloe Ferox is an absolute treat for skin that needs hydration, even damaged skin that’s in need of a quick, deep, dose of moisturiser. Packed full of nutritional vitamins including vitamin A, minerals, and a potent mix of honey and tripeptides that replenish the lost moisture and penetrates deeply to bring skin to life and to renew elasticity for a more youthful skin and a healthy radiant glow.
This serum is a treatment, so use morning and evening before your moisturiser, apply a few drops into palms then gently massage into your face, neck and décolleté in upward circular movements using your fingertips, (it’s natural and so will not irritate the delicate eye areaor sensitive skin areas).
This mild cleansing gel contains some wonderful native ingredients such as green rooibos leaf extract, a natural alpha-hydroxy acid, and African potato which is full of sterols and sterolins, both great antioxidants for boosting the immune system and with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties for treating eczema, nappy rash and acne.
Neroli and sweet orange oil stimulate cell regeneration and improve skin elasticity. Neroli is great for relieving sunburn and as a post-operative scar treatment, it’s also used in aromatherapy as a soothing oil that helps relieve stress and promotes restfulness and is known for the alleviation of digestive issues such as colitis, digestive spasms and indigestion. Orange oil aids anxiety relief, so this is a really effective shower gel, both for your skin and for helping you relax.
Pillow and Linen Spray
This smells absolutely divine! It’s a blend of sweet, earthy-floral scents with neroli, geranium and lavender which is known for aiding sleep and helping to calm the mind. What a wonderful spray to use just before bed, spray onto your pillows and bedding from a bit of a height so the mist falls gently, and the aroma and beneficial properties will help you drift off to sleep.
