This body wash is a soothing blend for extremely dry and/or sun burned skin.
When you are using the body wash you will also inhale the scent emitted from the essential oils used, affecting the limbic system which controls our emotions, memories, and sense of smell. This allows the emotional support provided by each oil while cleaning the skin.
Essential oils are lipid soluble, meaning they pass through the blood brain barrier very easily. Cell membranes are made of lipids and that allows the oils to slip easily through cell walls and start helping the cell immediately. When you apply essential oils topically to the skin they will provide relief very quickly.
Let's look at the essential oils used and their properties:
Frankincense (Boswellia carterii, frereana, and sacra) ------------------------
This is my go-to oil. It has SO. MANY. USES. It is amazing for the skin in particular. It promotes cell regeneration, reduces scarring and inflammation, and helps the body heal. It has anti-infectious and antimicrobial properties that help your skin heal from cuts or burns.
Emotionally, frankincense can assist with depression.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) ------------------------
Lavender is another wonderful oil that is amazing for the skin. Like frankincense, lavender is anti-infectious and antimicrobial, which will also speed up healing. It is also aids in hives and burns.
From an emotional standpoint, lavender can alleviate feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression. It has a calming, sedating affect.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) ------------------------
The cooling effect peppermint is really good for soothing burned skin. Peppermint also has antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties that make it an ideal pairing with the frankincense and lavender. It is an invigorating scent that enhances the other oils it is paired with.
Emotionally, peppermint can help with anger and depression.
