Conditioners and their benefits

Screen Shot 2013-09-14 at 3.58.16 PM

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Renewing Night Conditioner
For all skin conditions
Advanced night care

Renewing Night Conditioner provides powerful oil-free night care for all skin conditions. This unique blend of rhythmitised ingredients enables your skin to complete its natural regeneration processes for night-time renewal: dry skin is encouraged to retain oil and moisture; sensitive skin is soothed; oily, blemished skin is calmed and balanced.

Formulation: Rhythmitised dilutions of witch hazel, madonna lily and silver, along with precious rose, bryophyllum, marsh mallow and sunflower support the skin’s essential night-time tasks of cleansing, balancing and renewal.

Use:

Skin cells are renewed every 28-30 days. Mirroring this same regenerative cycle, Renewing Night Conditioner should be used for 28-30 days. Apply nightly, after evening cleansing instead of Toner.  We recommend one 28 night treatment of Renewing Night Conditioner per year for each decade of life (for example 3 times a year at the age of 30). We particularly recommend in the two most transitional seasons of spring and autumn.

Flick the ampoule to ensure contents are in the bottom, snap top off using a towel and empty contents into cupped hand. Press gently and evenly to skin until the solution has been fully absorbed – include eyes, lips, earlobes, neck and décolleté.

Sensitive Care Conditioner

For sensitive, inflammed skin
Advanced care for sensitive skin

Sensitive Care Conditioner is specially formulated to care for sensitive, red or irritated skin, and skin prone to couperose.

Formulation: Rhythmitised dilutions of gemstones pearl (the oyster’s irritation), artemesia and malachite have a cooling and soothing effect on skin, helping to reduce the appearance of redness, couperose, rosacea and enlarged capillaries.

Use:

Skin cells are renewed every 28-30 days. Mirroring this same regenerative cycle, Sensitive Care Conditioner should be used for 30 nights instead of Toner.  We recommend one 28 day treatment of Sensitive Care Conditioner per year for each decade of life (for example 3 times a year at the age of 30).

Flick the ampoule to ensure contents are in the bottom, snap top off using a towel and empty contents into cupped hand. Press gently and evenly to skin until the solution has been fully absorbed – include eyes, lips, earlobes, neck and décolleté.

Holistic Night Routine

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care’s oil-free approach to night time skin care respects the skin’s inherent wisdom. Heavy, oily night creams do not allow the skin to ‘breathe’ and can inhibit the skin’s natural functions when it is most active. At night after cleansing, apply only a non-oily Dr.Hauschka Facial Toner/Clarifying Toner (and Regenerating Serum if appropriate to support a maturing skin) or Conditioner or Intensive Treatment.

A one month treatment of Renewing Night Conditioner is highly recommended for new customers, particularly those who are accustomed to the use of heavy night creams and may feel tight or dry during the transition to Dr. Hauschka’s oil-free night time ritual.

Sensitive Care Conditioner is recommended for a sensitive skin and in cases of sun stress, sunburn, allergies, irritation, heat and redness.

What is ‘rhythmisation’?

Rhythm the heart of Dr.Hauschka skin care

Screen Shot 2013-09-14 at 3.10.36 PM
Rose Essence preparation

In 1929 in the ‘rose experiment’ Rudolf Hauschka succeeded for the first time to make a watery extract of rose that did not contain alcohol and did not deteriorate. He was searching for a way to obtain the healing properties of a plant. The solution – rhythmisation.

The idea underlying the rhythmic process is that rhythm carries life, every plant, every living thing is exposed to rhythms, the influence of polarities; for example, light and dark, rest and movement, warmth and cold.  When the harvested plant, after being chopped and mixed with water, undergoes a process of rhythmisation, that is dynamic exposure to the polarities that have determined its life and strength, then something amazing happens. The extract, to which a little ash from the plant residues is added at the end of the process, remains stable for years and the plant has released its healing powers. The resulting ‘mother tinctures’ or the similarly produced essences or oily extracts are now ready for further processing.

Rose Essence preparation

A valuable source of inspiration

Dr. Rudolf Hauschka was a young pharmacist when he met Dr. Rudolf Steiner. Thirty years his senior, Dr. Steiner gave Dr. Hauschka the advice that was to inspire him to make his groundbreaking discovery years later:

“Study rhythms – rhythm carries life.”

Witch Hazel
Witch Hazel Essence preparation

With Steiner’s answer in his head, Hauschka developed a procedure for preserving medicinal plant extracts without using alcohol as a preservative. He used the power of natural polarities, the rhythmic alternation of darkness and light, warmth and cold, movement and rest.

Even today, we still use this basic rhythmic procedure to produce our extracts, essences and tinctures. We rhythmically stir our base products and even rhythmically shake our preparations to prepare them for the Intensive Treatments, for example. The rhythms of the seasons also determine the work in our medicinal plant garden.

Witch Hazel
Witch Hazel Essence preparation

Rhythm as a form of communication

Like all other organisms, your body also recognises and experiences different rhythms. If we take your skin alone as an example:

Your skin renews itself every 28-30 days. And it behaves differently during the day and at night, when it regenerates itself.

We tailor our skin care products to these rhythms: the regular use of Dr. Hauschka products supports your skin’s regeneration rhythm, activating and stabilising it. Rich, moisturising products pamper and protect your skin during the day while at night we recommend using non-oily products to enable your skin’s metabolic functions to work undisturbed.

By using rhythms, we can activate our body’s natural forces.

Calendula (Marigold) Essence
Calendula (Marigold) Essence

Dr.Hauschka’s extraction procedure

With his rhythmitised, aqueous medicinal plant extracts, Dr. Rudolf Hauschka developed groundbreaking new pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.  Today, we still use his procedure to produce our extracts: we cut up freshly harvested plants, mix them with water for seven days, subject them to light and darkness, warmth and cold, rest and movement, press and filter them and sometimes add a little ash to the pressed residues. The extract now contains the essence and the powers of a medicinal plant – and can be preserved for many years.

A rhythmical manufacturing procedure is also used to create oil extracts and aqueous essences for our skin care products. During this procedure, the oil extracts are subjected to a specific warming stimulus. Dried plant components, such as rose buds are carefully transformed into oil at a temperature of 37°C, or in other words at human body temperature.

Depending on the recipe, we mix the medicinal plant extracts, essences, tinctures and juices with high-quality waxes and oils to produce ready-to-use products. Out of principle, we forgo using any chemical/synthetic fragrances, dyes or preservatives.

30 Day Spring Skin Fitness & Detox Challenge

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 5.09.11 PM

Welcome to your 30 Days of Spring Skin Fitness & Detox for a healthy, radiant skin! 

We’re starting on 22nd September, Spring Equinox and celebrating completion on 22nd October 2013, pop the dates into your calendar.

What you will need: Dr. Hauschka products (Cleansing, Toning, Moisturising) for your daily rituals plus Facial Steam Bath, Cleansing Clay Mask and the Cream Mask most suited for your skin, if you’re not sure check here.  Rhythmic Night Conditioner, or if you have sensitive skin then Rhythmic Conditioner Sensitive – 30 ampoules.  I also find our Cleansing Sponge perfect for easily removing Cleansing Clay Mask.

We’re going to be asking you to complete one night a week each week the following:

1) Facial Steam Bath
2) Cleansing Clay Mask
3) Cream Mask

On another night of the week, cleanse early in the evening, then apply your chosen Cream Mask.

I find it’s helpful to choose a particular night of the week, for me it’s Sunday night for the Facial Steam Bath, Cleansing Clay Mask and Cream Mask and Wednesday or Thursday night for application of Cream Mask.

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 5.06.43 PM

Day 1
Morning:

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing upon waking in the morning and do this every morning.

If it’s going to be easier then juice a pile of lemons, put the juice in ice blocks and freeze.  Take one block out each night and place in a cup, so you’re ready for the morning.  We need to make this habit nice and easy.

FOOD FACT: start each morning with a warm glass of lemon juice in warm water: aids the body in flushing out toxins, jump starts the digestive tract, aids the liver in its cleansing processes and increases detoxification.

2) ‘Compress and Hydrate’ skin to soften the pores in readiness for cleansing.  Use 5 drops of Lemon Lemongrass Bath Essence in your basin water.

Check out our Compress & Hydrate + Press & Roll video

3) Cleansing Cream – ‘press & roll’ technique.

Scrub the bathroom but never ever scrub your skin, way too harsh, it has to last you a lifetime.

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 3.21.22 PM

4) Toner – close eyes and mist onto the skin, 3 pumps should do.

5) Day Care – should always be warmed between the palms of the hands and applied to skin still moist from Toner. This ensures even and economical application.
See below for quick reference or to our Day Care Blog for more information on each product.

Normalising Day Oil – for oily/blemished skin
Melissa Day Cream – for sensitive combination skin
Rose Day Cream Light – for normal or sensitive skin, usually recommended for a younger skin, up to around 35.
Quince Day Cream – for normal skin or sensitive skin
Rose Day Cream – for normal, dry, sensitive, mature skin
Toned Day Cream – tinted moisturiser for normal, dry, sensitive or mature skin
Moisturising Day Cream – for normal, dry, mature/pallid skin
Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream – specific support for firming a maturing skin

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 5.13.54 PM

Evening:

1) ‘Compress and Hydrate’ skin to soften the pores in readiness for cleansing.  Use 5 drops of Lemon Lemongrass Bath Essence in the water.  If you feel you need something a little more relaxing in readiness for bedtime, you may prefer to use Moor Lavender Bath Essence instead of the Lemon Lemongrass Bath Essence.
2) Cleansing Milk
3) Facial Steam Bath
4) Cleansing Clay Mask
5) Cream Mask (Rejuvenating, Moisturising, Firming or Soothing Mask)
6) Rhythmic Conditioner – we’ll be using one ampoule per evening for 30 evenings.

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 3.20.57 PM

Step by step how to do a Facial Steam, Cleansing Clay Mask and Cream Mask for Day 1 which will be repeated weekly during the programme:

1. Compress and hydrate your skin, cleanse with Cleansing Milk, remove with the warm, moist Dr. Hauschka Compress Cloth.
2. Place 1 heaped teaspoon of Cleansing Clay Mask in a small container in readiness.
3. Dilute two teaspoons of Facial Steam Bath with ½ litre (500ml) of steaming water in a large bowl. Lean over the bowl, covering the head with towel, and steam for 5-10 minutes. Follow with Cleansing Clay Mask.

Note:  If you don’t wish to steam, then you may do this step with Facial Steam Bath and ‘Compress and Hydrate’ instead.

4. While your skin is still warm and moist mix 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons of water (I use the Facial Steam Bath water) to the Cleansing Clay Mask in the small container. The consistency you want is spreadable, not too thin because it will drip off your face and not too pasty.
5. Apply mask to your face and neck excluding eye contour area ideally with a mask brush, even a pastry brush would do at a push, otherwise your fingers. Apply from the centre of the face outwards. We always work in the direction of lymph flow.  Allow to dry, it’s no longer active once dry.

Tip: Watch where the mask dries first. That’s a good indication that particular area of your face is dehydrated.  Are you missing that area with your Day Care?  Do you need a richer Day Care product?

6. To remove, I find using the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Sponge the easiest, but a non white face flannel will do, moistened with the now lukewarm facial steam water. Remove easily by damping down the mask first, then wiping.
7. Now apply your Cream Mask (Rejuvenating, Moisturising, Firming or Soothing Mask) including the eye contour area, as an eye mask.
8. Leave on for at least 30 minutes to absorb.  I leave mine on for most of the evening. Remove Cream Mask with a warm moist Compress Cloth before bedtime.
9. Apply the contents of a Rhythmic Conditioner Ampoule. If you are new to Rhythmic Conditioner Ampoules, flick the top to ensure all liquid is in the bottom of the ampoule, then using a towel break off the glass top. Pour 1/2 the contents into the palm of one hand, spread between the palms of the hands and quickly press into the skin and repeat with the balance of the liquid.  Apply nothing further to your skin. It’s bedtime.

Note: We do not recommend any heat for a rosacea skin condition – use tepid water for a Compress & Hydrate instead.

Day 6
Repeat Day 2

This is your weekly routine, so repeat until you reach your 30th evening. By which time your skin will be deep cleansed, nourished, more even toned, soft and radiant.

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 4.54.00 PM

Great skin care is about using the best possible natural and organic products you can find, which is Dr. Hauschka!  Eat fresh, nutritious food and drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. Get 8 hours sleep and put measures in place if you’re stressed – a state of relaxation, happiness and laughter is good for your skin! I can’t function without 1-2 cups of coffee in the morning so that remains for me, even when I’m doing my 30 Day Programme.  A 30 minute daily walk in the fresh air is good for your body and your soul, in nature if you can.

You just can’t expect great skin if you eat fast food and drink fizzy drinks.  I’m not a fan of any convenience foods which are more like science than food, including overly processed over priced breakfast cereals.  Here’s my favourite breakfast I prepare the night before.

Easy Bircher Muesli 

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 4.57.29 PM

In a breakfast bowl the night before, mix the following:

1/4 C Organic Porridge Oats
1 tsp of LSA or LSC (for your essential fatty acids)
1 Tblsp sultanas (or any other dried fruit you fancy)
An apple grated with the skin on

1) Cover ingredients with milk, mix together then cover the bowl and leave in the fridge overnight.

2) In the morning I add a few nuts, yoghurt and honey and mix through and of course once it’s berry season then in they go as well! 

Of course you can add whatever else you fancy – coconut, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds…

If you prefer to soak oats in fruit juice rather than milk, then put the grated apple in the mix in the morning.

Gluten free option: Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen wah’) Flakes

Cute: ‘Overnight Oats’, make in a jar…

Dr. Hauschka Masks – your skin loves the extra care!

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Facial Steam Bath
Prepares skin for deep cleansing

Of course Facial Steam Bath isn’t a Mask but as it’s Cleansing Clay Mask’s ‘partner product’ it really does need to appear here.

Facial Steam Bath supports the skin’s natural self-cleansing functions, reduces the appearance of redness and softens pores, blackheads and impurities in readiness for a deeper cleanse with Cleansing Clay Mask.

Formulation: Nasturtium, daisy and witch hazel support the skin’s self-cleansing processes, encourage natural exfoliation and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.

Use: Once a week, dilute two teaspoons of Facial Steam Bath with ½ litre (500ml) of steaming water in a large bowl. Lean over the bowl, covering the head with towel, and steam for 5-10 minutes. Follow with Cleansing Clay Mask.

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care; Dr.Hauschka Kosmetik

Cleansing Clay Mask
For all skin conditions
Deeply cleanses, mild exfoliation

Cleansing Clay Mask deeply cleanses, invigorates and clarifies all skin conditions and effectively helps minimise blemishes and enlarged pores.

Formulation: Loess clay with nasturtium and witch hazel actively binds with and loosens dirt particles, lifting and drawing them from the skin. Blackheads are softened, skin is soothed and the appearance of redness and blemishes is diminished.

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 3.05.33 PM

Use:
a) Blend 1-2 heaped teaspoons with an equal amount of water to create a smooth paste. Steam with Facial Steam Bath, and then smooth the mask onto the face, neck and décolleté. Avoid eye area.
b) Easily remove by re-wetting the Cleansing Clay Mask with Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Sponge and wipe.

Tips:
a) Cleansing Clay Mask is no longer active once dry.
b) For skin which tends to be dry and sensitive, add 2 pumps of Cleansing Milk to the mask before applying and remove after 3-5 minutes.

Rejuvenating Mask
For all skin conditions, our most versatile cream mask
Soothes, enlivens and refines all skin conditions

In just 30 minutes, Rejuvenating Mask offers soothing care and deep renewal for all skin conditions. The appearance of redness or blemishes diminished, pores are visibly refined and skin appears more even and toned. Skin glows with a healthy radiance. This is absolutely the Mask you choose to use before a special event.

Formulation: Quince seed, anthyllis and chamomile extracts rapidly support the skin’s processes of renewal, helping to maintain moisture, visibly minimise pores and calm the appearance of redness and irritation. Nurturing jojoba, apricot kernel and wheat germ oils clarify and smooth skin. Applying this mask will help you to feel pampered and offer your skin a sense of well-being.

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care; Dr.Hauschka Kosmetik

Moisturising Mask
For dry, sensitive and mature skin
Moisturises and replenishes dry and/or dehydrated skin

Moisturising Mask offers your skin a sense of safety and security.  It imparts moisture-retaining qualities to dry, sensitive and mature skin. The blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple. Applying this mask offers rich protection for your skin.

Formulation: Quince seed extract replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture. Nourishing almond, avocado and jojoba oils hydrate the outer layer of skin while rose wax and organic shea butter soothe and protect.

Tips:
a) For a super nourishing and uplifting Mask treatment after cleansing apply Regenerating Serum generously then apply Moisturising Mask and leave to absorb as long as possible. Make sure you include eye contour area too as an eye mask.
b) For a parched dry and/or dehydrated skin use Moisturising Mask as your day cream for a month as a boost.

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care; Dr.Hauschka Kosmetik

Firming Mask
For mature skin
Visibly minimises fine lines and wrinkles

As we age, the skin’s natural processes of cellular renewal slow and it loses elasticity and resilience. Firming Mask protects and fortifies, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while nurturing and hydrating for smooth, supple, enlivened skin.

Formulation: Rose, marsh mallow and pansy support the skin’s natural processes of renewal. Rose petal extract, rose wax, rose essential oil and avocado and almond oils support elasticity as they pamper and enrich the skin. Mango butter and beeswax enliven and replenish. Applying this mask supports your skin feeling stronger and smoother.

Tip: Make sure you include eye contour area too, as an eye mask.

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care; Dr.Hauschka Kosmetik

Soothing Mask
For sensitive, hypersensitive, irritated and stressed skin
Calming and soothing

Soothing Mask calms and balances sensitive, reddened and irritated skin, guiding it to comfort and radiance.

Formulation: Alchemilla, borage, buckwheat and mullein combine to calm and fortify skin, helping skin to become less reactive. Quince seed extract and witch hazel help retain moisture while nourishing shea butter joins macadamia nut and coconut oils to provide protection. Anthyllis soothes and balances redness and irritation. Applying this mask helps to revive your skin and supports an even complexion.

Vitamins for Your Skin

Screen Shot 2013-09-05 at 10.58.02 AM

The skin healers and antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E, and the optimum choice when topically applying these vitamins is when they come in the form of the whole plant extract. Rosehip for Vitamin C and Wheatgerm for Vitamin E, both found in Rose Day Cream formulation.  Mix your Rose Day Cream with a drop of two of Normalising Day Oil* in the palms of your hands prior to application. A potent antioxidant blend! The glorious orange colour of Normalising Day Oil originates from Wild Carrot Extract, a rich source of pro Vitamin A. Antioxidant vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E are very important to healthy skin because it is these vitamins that share in the responsibility of controlling the damage that free radicals by products of energy production within the body and of environmental contaminants such as air pollution produce. Among the several types of damage done by free radicals is the destruction of collagen and elastin which are fibres that support the skin and keeps it looking supple. As these are damaged wrinkles and a lack of that youthful firmness can occur. Vitamin C also plays a part in the production of collagen making it essential to the function and look of the skin.

Vitamin A

If your skin has been feeling scaly and dry, then there’s a possibility that you might be lacking in Vitamin A. Since Vitamin A also helps the skin rebuild tissues, it is also an essential vitamin when it comes to healing wounds and other damage to the skin. Vitamin A is also a great anti-ageing nutrient to protect against wrinkles and dull skin.

Vitamin C

For brighter, clearer, firmer skin, reach for vitamin C. “It’s the most potent antioxidant in terms of collagen building for anti-ageing purposes” says Jose, our Australasian Esthetician Trainer. It is thought to assist with sun defence, as well as clarifying the complexion, addressing pigmentation and brightening. Vitamin C is also an effective antioxidant. This means that it can also help with skin aging. Vitamin C also stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is the protein responsible for making your skin supple. So if you wish to retain smooth and youthful skin then Vitamin C can help.

Vitamin E

Soothing, moisturising and protective, vitamin E is a powerful healer, so is good for sensitive skin or sun damage, combined with vitamin C. It is also thought to be more effective when used together with vitamin A. Vitamin E is perhaps the most well-known vitamin that is essential for healthy skin. This is because Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant that helps fight free radicals which are one of the major causes of premature skin ageing. As a result, Vitamin E can be an important anti-ageing nutrient. Appearance of age spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and lines are reduced by applying Vitamin-E rich products. Wheatgerm Oil, contained in Rose Day Cream is a rich source of Vitamin E. *Normalising Day Oil is our product for an oily/acne/blemished skin, however, we also use it to mix in with Rose Day Cream as a potent antioxidant and protective oil ‘serum’ blend.

Dressing Daily with Dr. Hauschka Body Oils

Screen Shot 2014-11-07 at 12.14.50 pm

The Dr. Hauschka range of luxurious, and rather addictive Body Oils, envelop you with an aura of fragrance while providing rich nutrition for your skin.

We recommend applying Dr. Hauschka Body Oil on skin that’s still moist from the shower or bath. The water and oil then form an emulsion directly on your skin, which is rapidly absorbed.

Our Body Oils are especially composed to suit different moods and dispositions, providing a varied selection for all seasons. The plants at the heart of the oils are established medicinal herbs, which have specific effects on the mind and body.  Depending on your particular needs at the time, choose a Dr. Hauschka Body Oil that relaxes or fortifies, calms or refreshes.

Blackthorn Toning Body Oil
Toning and warming

Dr.Hauschka Blackthorn Toning Body Oil strengthens and warms the skin. The harmonious composition of Blackthorn, Birch leaves and St.John’s wort is designed to firm the skin. With its pleasant fragrance this magical body oil gives a sense of renewed vitality and well-being for the day ahead. Blackthorn Body Oil strengthens connective tissue reducing the appearance of stretch marks during pregnancy, weight loss or gain. The formula is based on plant extracts, with only a minute amount of essential oils for aroma. My personal autumn/winter favourite, because I feel focused and strengthened when I’m ‘wearing’ Blackthorn Toning Body Oil. At my morning coffee stop my ‘perfume’ is regularly complimented on when I’m wearing this Oil as well.

Birch Arnica Energising Body Oil
Revitalises after physical activity

Physical activity and exercise serve to activate the body’s metabolic rate. When we perspire our body excretes waste products through the skin. With hints of Mint and Lemon, Dr. Hauschka’s Birch Arnica Energising Body Oil refreshes the body and maintains moisture levels, leaving skin soft and supple. The formula, containing skin-fortifying Birch leaves, Arnica, Burdock and Nettle activates the skin’s metabolism and encourages blood circulation whilst providing soothing warmth to tense muscles and tender joints. A massage with Birch Arnica Energising Body Oil before and after physical activity helps to keep the muscles and connective tissue flexible and prevents muscular aches and pains.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil
Refreshing and firming

Women are only too familiar with the unsightly appearance of cellulite, which develops as fat cells swell and push through the elastic connective tissues in the skin, causing the ‘orange peel’ effect on the skin’s surface. Cellulite can only be managed with a comprehensive treatment plan, starting by stimulating the circulation in the affected areas. Regular massage with the refreshingly citrus Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil can help. The invigorating formula containing Jojoba oil, Lemon Peel, Mistletoe, Horsetail and Lemongrass helps to firm the skin and fortify the connective tissue.  A diet low in fat and sugar also helps to discourage cellulite, as will regular exercise. This Body Oil is perfect to bring about a revitalising start to the day and it’s my summer time favourite.

Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil
Protects and soothes the skin and the senses

Sometimes we feel as though we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil with rich Shea Butter and Jojoba envelops your skin in a soothing layer of protection. This creamy, two-phase formula with extracts of Horse Chestnut and Horsetail also incorporates the protective qualities of Moor (peat) extract, prepared in our special rhythmic procedure. Moor gives you a sense of being protected from external influences, and is supportive in times of stress or indeed for people with a sensitive nature. The gentle natural fragrance of Lavender essential oil has a relaxing effect and promotes calm, deep sleep. Also may be used as a ‘layer’ of protection for children.

Rose Nurturing Body Oil
Harmonises and nurtures the skin and the senses

Every so often the skin and senses yearn for a little indulgence and nurturing care. This is the ideal time to treat yourself to the luxuriously fragrant and exotic Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Oil. Extract of Damask Roses, exquisite natural Rose essential oil and Jojoba oil create a balancing, harmonising body oil that helps relieve tension and emotional exhaustion and leaves your skin feeling silky-soft. Dr. Hauschka has worked tirelessly to obtain Damask Roses of the very finest organic/biodynamic quality. The quality of Persian roses is well known and we share our knowledge and experience of organic cultivation with Rose farmers in Afghanistan, Iran, Bulgaria and Turkey.  More recently we have initiated a Rose Project in the Ethiopian Highlands. 

Rose Body Oil is perfect as a baby massage oil, just remember to wrap your baby in a towel for carrying after a massage, in case he or she is still a little ‘slippery’.

Almond St.John’s Wort Soothing Body Oil
Soothes dry and sensitive skin and brings sunshine to your day

Sometimes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. In today’s hectic world, many children and adults alike find they have such sensitive, thin skin that they cannot fully protect themselves against external influences, and their skin reacts by becoming red, itchy and flaky. Almond St. John’swort Soothing Body Oil, containing soothing St. John’swort and Hops to smooth the skin and help keep it supple. It is also an excellent choice for a calming massage. St. John’swort is said to capture the summer solstice sunshine and I find it brings a cheerfulness to my morning skin care regime.
