I was turned onto this stuff from Lagoon Essentials by @astralmedicine who posted on how much it helped her recover from a dermatitis flare.
I had been looking for a good oil that would be hydrating but not too oily for my skin & hair (I have only used this on my face— it’s precious!) this winter and had to try it out!
About my skin & hair: all oils are TOO MUCH oil. They always have been. Coconut, jojoba, you name it— too much.
However! This gem. It really is precious!! I use very light amounts on my face & hair daily. I’m pretty much obsessed.
The LIGHT Side:
+ A little goes a long way
+ Doesn’t make your skin too oily
+ Doesn’t cause breakouts (in facts it’s best known at preventing them!)
+ Awesome for softening hair & frizz
+ Hands down my fave skincare product next to @liviglibations Best Skin Ever (if you know me this says a LOT)
The DARK Side:
- Pricey $$ however to press just 1 lb of this oil takes 500 poms!
- The smell is deep, pungent, earthy— but not in a flattering way! This took some serious getting used to. But, it’s a lot like Goldenseal. Once you see it’s the real deal you GO ALL IN & begin to love it (maybe it’s just me)
- The dropper easily leaks small amounts of oil so if you’re not super careful whatever you set this on will get oily too.
You can find this as a Medical Medium recommended product on his website www.medicalmedium.com
If you try this, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have been!
