We have rounded up our favorite Summer Skincare Essentials to get you through the next couple months sporting a beautiful summer glow.

Extra Virgin Plant Oils

Next on our lineup we have our Extra Virgin Plant Oils. For summer, we love Rose Hip, Carrot and Calendula. Carrot helps prepare the skin for sun and gives a natural healthy glow. Rosehip helps restore devitalized skin and lock in moisture. Finally, we have Calendula. This oil is great for all skin types and is one of our favorites thanks to its gentle, calming nature. Calendula is great for dry or sensitive skin as well as areas that have had a bit too much sun.

All of these oils are great to pair with our hydrosols and single note essential oils for extra benefits.

It 5.5 million roses to make one liter of rose oil, making this oil one of the most expensive oils in the world. Often referred to as “liquid gold,”each drop of rose essential oil is made from 30 roses.
