Facial Oil Application

Wild As The Wind SkincareWe advocate using our facial oils twice a day, as long as you have no allergies or other sensitivities.

Because we are living in an increasingly toxic environment, with our food being produced in ever more unnatural ways, our bodies ability to cope with these dramatic changes is being compromised.

However, if you eat organic food and you live in a less congested, more rural environment the chances are that you may not have developed any allergies yet.

It is therefore, likely to be quite safe to use two applications of the Wild As The Wind FACIAL OILs without the risk of adverse reaction.

If you have developed a number of allergies throughout your lifetime then we advise you to only apply your FACIAL OIL at night, and to use it intermittently with another natural, unscented FACIAL OIL blend, like the companion oil, FACIAL OIL No. 0.

FACIAL OIL blends with essential oils

Wild As The Wind facial oils that are blended with essential oils all possess an adaptogenic component, which means that they respond to your individual skin type, supplementing the skin where it is deficient, and reducing where there is surplus. This is also true where combination skin is concerned. Essentially this means that if you have oily skin or dry skin, or patches of both conditions, our facial oils will restore a healthy balance, eliminating excess oils and moisturising dryness.

Acne & Other Outbreaks

We also advise people with problematic patchy outbreaks to use our FACIAL OIL No. 2 on unaffected areas of the face, and as a maintenance facial oil when the outbreaks have cleared, and to use FACIAL OIL No. 7 where an outbreak has occurred, until it has cleared.

Cleanse Before Moisturising

Do not use FACIAL OIL No.2 or FACIAL OIL No. 7 on uncleansed skin.

We advocate cleansing your face using Wild As The Wind hydrosol cleansers as they don’t have the alcohols, parabens and harsh surfactants like SLS and SLeSĀ  found in other products which leave harmful residues on the skin. Instead, our hydrosols deliver very healthful moisture to the skin which will be locked in by the FACIAL OIL No. 2 or FACIAL OIL No. 7, or any other of our hydrating and moisturising facial products.

Surfactants, which are added to make products foam, are typically found in most personal care products, like soaps and shampoos, facial cleansers and facial scrubs etc. The main surfactants are:

  • Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)
  • Disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate
  • Ammonium laureth sulfate
  • Cocoamidopropyl betaine
  • Alpha-Olefin sulfonate
  • Cocamphocarboxyglycinate

Wild As The Wind Cleanser Application

Using organic, unbleached cotton wool pads or balls, spray about eight squirts of Wild As The Wind hydrosol cleanser, and then firmly wipe the face in short stroking motions. Wipe the entire face, using as many cotton wool swabs as required, particularly around the eyes, nose and chin. Don’t forget to wipe your forehead!

Start by cleansing around the eyes, and finish by cleansing around the mouth and nose.

The reason we start with the eyes is because the eyes are very absorbent and if we cleanse other parts of the face first we are likely to deposit bacteria, viruses and other undesirable things into the eyes. This can fast track infections into the eyes and, therefore, the rest of our body.

*The Herpes Simplex Virus will blind us if it gets into our eyes!

If you have an open outbreak around the nose or mouth or elsewhere on your face, use separate balls or pads of cotton wool for these areas to restrict cross-infection.

Facial Oil Application

Place approximately five to ten drops of the FACIAL OIL No.2 in the palms of your hands and rub them vigorously together to warm the oil. Raise to your face and open hands in the gesture of a book and then inhale deeply a couple of times. Rewarm the oil and apply it gently to the face in tight circular motions.

As with the cleanser, always apply around the eyes first and leave the problematic areas last to avoid cross-infection.

Also apply to the neck and decolletage, adding a few more drops if required.

It can also be applied to the backs of our hands to help dissolve age spots and reduce other signs of aging.

*We also advocate taking Milk Thistle to reduce the severity of Liver spots.

If you suffer from crapey skin and liver spots on the arms, we recommend using FACIAL OIL No. 2 on the arms as well. It is also particularly good at relieving dry and cracked skin on the elbows.

To reap all the benefits of this amazing oil blend, apply a minimum of twice daily, after cleansing (preferably with a good hydrosol facial cleanser), as long as you do not suffer from intollerances.

*For a particularly healing application of FACIAL OIL No. 7 please refer to the Castor Oil section of the FACIAL OIL No. 7 page.

Allergies And Intollerances

We do not build up allergies and intolerances over night. They are usually the result of a long-term accumulation of toxins in the body, or the consequence of prolonged and sustained exposure to environmental toxins.

Most things are ultimately toxic in large doses, and essential oils are no exception. In fact, essential oils are so potent that they must always be diluted before use.

Most prescription drugs, designed to be taken orally, will become toxic in larger doses other than the stated dose, and the same is true of essential oils.

However, certain people will be more toxic than others depending on their age and circumstances, which usually means a reduced tolerance to all other substances that they come into contact with.

The more toxic you are the more likely you will have a reaction to things like essential oils. Unfortunately, the older you are the more likely you are to be increasingly toxic. (This will not be true if you are performing several liver flushes a year, enjoy your coffee enemas and live on green leafy vegetables alongside all the other coloured vegetables in the spectrum. You know who you are!)

You will also be more toxic if you smoke and drink heavily, or you eat a lot of processed foods. Your toxicity levels will increase if you do not eat a lot of vegetables, you spend a lot of time on computers, or digital devices, and you live in a city. This will also likely be the case if you have amalgam fillings or any form of chronic dental or bodily infection etc…

General Advice

Advice: The more toxins you have been exposed to the more sparingly you should use your Wild As The Wind facial oils. It is always best to start using new products cautiously in order to gain confidence in them. We advise this approach.

The greater your toxicity levels the more likely you are to have a reaction to Wild As The Wind products.

Only you and your healthcare professional can truly gauge the level of toxicity you are presently at. But allergies and intolerances are a good indication of systemic toxicity.

WARNING: Certain essential oils are contraindicated for certain prescription drugs. Please read your prescription drug information sheet to determine contraindications with essential oils and base oils before using any of the Wild As The Wind products.

WARNING: Toxins build up over time in the body. If you expose yourself to anything in too great a dose, over a sustained period, then the likelihood will be that you will develop a toxic reaction and become intolerant to the substance. We advise you to enjoy your Wild As The Wind products sparingly.

Always keep keep cosmetics out of the reach of children.
