Why these essential oils?

The most powerful natural antihistamine: Annual Tansy

Chamazulene is a sesquiterpene well known for its anti-allergic and more particularly antihistaminic properties.

Indeed, chamazulene inhibits the release of histamine, decreasing at the same time the capillary permeability induced by histamine. Its action will reduce sneezing, nasal discharge and stinging of the eyes.

In addition, the anti-inflammatory properties of chamazulene are known; it inhibits the synthesis of leukotrienes B4, molecules involved in triggering inflammation. Finally, Annual Tansy essential oil contains a monoterpene ketone (camphor) with mucolytic and expectorant activity. It thus increases the respiratory amplitude.

Fine Lavender to soothe

Terpene esters (linalyl acetate, lavandulyl acetate) and monoterpenol (linalool) are known for their calming and sedative properties.

In a quality Fine Lavender essential oil, there should be 30-50% of the former and 25-35% of the latter. Linalool and linalyl acetate act symbiotically to inhibit nerve stimulation in muscles, thus preventing their involuntary contraction. Linalool inhibits tremors while linalyl acetate has a sustained muscle relaxing action. These two molecules give the essential oil of Lavender Fine an ultra-powerful antispasmodic action. In addition, Fine Lavender essential oil is the most calming and soothing of all lavender essential oils.

The essential oil of lemon Eucalyptus as anti-inflammatory

Citronellal, a monoterpene aldehyde, found in many essential oils, is known mainly for its anti-inflammatory properties.

In a quality Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil, it should be present in a large majority (65 to 82% of constituents). Citronellal modulates the body's immune response to external aggression and mobilizes leukocytes, generating a notorious anti-inflammatory activity. Moreover, it allows to fight against the respiratory muscular spasms and calms the involuntary contractions. Its antispasmodic action is thus added to that of the essential oil of Fine Lavender. Finally, citronellal is known for its calming and sedative action by acting effectively on the nervous system. It results in a delicious feeling of appeasement...

Why this vegetable oil?

The vegetable oil of Argan

The Argan vegetable oil is the queen of vegetable oils intended for skin application. Its fine particles are easily absorbed by the epidermis. The essential oils that will be integrated into it will therefore not be trapped on the surface of the skin. Moreover, it repairs and regenerates the skin easily attacked by pollution or the sun.
