STAR BOTAN­I­CALS

Canadian Gardening Annual 2016 - - Beauty -

a. Bor­age oil/ evening prim­rose oil

Th­ese two plant oils have sim­i­lar com­po­si­tions of gamma linolenic acids (GLAS) – un­beat­able for mois­tur­iz­ing dull, dry skin.

b. Rose gera­nium

Not only does this gar­den beauty help skin re­gen­er­ate, but some also be­lieve it may lighten age spots.

c. Prickly pear seed oil

Prickly pear seed oil is rich in amino acids (which stim­u­late col­la­gen pro­duc­tion), vi­ta­min K (which helps al­le­vi­ate dark cir­cles un­der eyes) and fatty acids.

d. Frank­in­cense

Counter sag­ging skin with this pow­er­ful aro­matic resin, which tight­ens skin and bal­ances out its ph.

e. Rose­mary oil

Di­lute the es­sen­tial oil in a car­rier oil, such as jo­joba or co­conut, and mas­sage on your scalp to pro­tect and pro­mote ex­ist­ing hair fol­li­cles.
