FACIAL OIL No. 7 is the Wild As The Wind dermal defense facial oil, which has been blended to treat difficult skin conditions, like Eczema, Acne, Rosacea and Psoriasis. It will help in supporting and improving the appearance of all dermatological conditions.

Some of the oils, like Jojoba and Castor Oils, have a propensity to purge the skin, as they are profoundly detoxifying and cleansing. Because of this you may experience an increase in your breakout when first using FACIAL OIL No. 7, but improvements will be obtained with continued use within a matter of weeks.

FACIAL OIL No. 7 has been developed to treat breakouts involving broken skin. When the skin has healed over it is possible to revert to using FACIAL OIL No. 2, which will continue the healing process, whilst also improving skin hydration and moisturisation.

Several oils have been included for their antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial qualities. For example, Tea Tree oil is four times more potent than conventional antiseptic creams.

There’s also a few oils that will improve the condition of the skin and prevent new scars appearing whilst also reducing the appearance of old scars.

A number of the oils have been included for their magical hormonal balancing abilities. And, some of the essential oils in the FACIAL OIL No. 7 have been included purely for their profound and subtle abilities to balance our deep subconscious emotions and treat us on an energetic level.

FACIAL OIL No. 7 Dermal Defense

Acne is a profoundly unsettling skin condition for a lot of people, which is, in every way, a clear reflection of the root cause of this persistent malady. Unsettled bodies at a systemic level will let their dis-ease be known!

Eczema is also a systemic issue, originating in the gut, and Psoriasis is symptomatic of an even deeper problem, that of such systemic dysfunction that auto-immunity is prevalent.

Rosacea, Keratosis Pilaris, (aka Chicken Skin), Dermatitis Herpetiformis and similar dermal conditions have not, as yet, been determined to have any specific causes, although it is noted that allergic reactions to certain bacteria, both on the skin and in the gut play a role in these conditions.

However, modern medicine is unlikely to find the real answers to these unpleasant and upsetting conditions because they are only looking to treat them with drug therapies, and are not looking to recommend life-style modifications such as nutritional adjustments and a reduction in stress etc.

We Need To Start Healing Ourselves

A lot of doctors will accurately tell their patients that fried food and alcohol will exacerbate skin conditions, and they will also recommend adopting a less stressful lifestyle whilst handing over prescriptions for long-term chemical interventions that will poison the body and ultimately stress it into worsening ill-health… but, these issues are seen to be superficial irritants rather than a reflection of the root cause of the conditions.

The Gut & Skin Health

There is no doubt in my mind that gut dysbiosis is at the core of many, if not all, of these skin conditions. An inability to digest food properly, owing to a leaky gut, parasitic infection (the little known pandemic of our time) or an inflamed digestive tract that isn’t sufficiently populated with the right flora to break down and digest the food that is flowing through it, will, somewhat inevitably, cause some pretty unpleasant symptoms:

  • Tiredness
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Poor sleep

And yes, you guessed it… SKIN IRRITATION!

All of these symptoms work in complete synergy to consistently depreciate ones health over time… they are the perfect downward spiral…

It is now believed that everyone is allergic to wheat, and that it’s just a matter of degree! There are inevitably other allergies in the mix here, I would cite dairy as being one of the big others. But there’s environmental irritants also (pick any one of, or any combination of, the 85,000 chemicals, (and counting), they’ve released into our environment in the last few decades, and EMF etc etc…)…

Our Environment & Skin Health

We have essentially messed things up!

Our obsession with killing the bacteria that our lives so depend on has led to the denaturing of food – (the pasteurisation of milk being one of the main reasons so many people are unable to tolerate this formerly nutritive part of our diets) – has meant that our fundamental immune systems, 80% of which reside in our guts, in the form of friendly bacteria, are being decimated.

Gluten & Dairy & Skin Health

Profit motivations are also key here. It was observed that cows with hormonal imbalances were the ones that produced the most milk. Thus, it was these cows that have been bred to improve yields. The poor, poor cows that now produce much of our milk are yielding eleven times more milk that a normal functioning cow used to produce. And instead of living for around twenty years, these poor sick animals expire after about five years on average.

But, gluten is an even bigger problem… although, rather than go into it here, as it’s a long and complex issue, we recommend you do your own research online amid the naturopathic and chiropractic community as well as one of the many functional medicinal practitioners, like Dr. Edward Group, who publish great material online, to get the latest news on the ever-evolving gluten story.

GreenMedInfo is also a great place to start.

Or, if you’re willing to wait a little while, the gluten problem will be covered in a major article within the Wild As The Wind Blog before too long. Please subscribe to the blog if you are interested in reading about the gluten problem in more detail, or if you are interested in gaining other, little known, health insights that may change your life for the better.

Suffice to say, we believe that hormonal imbalance and poor gut health are at the core of most of these conditions, and this is why conventional treatments, such as long-term antibiotic use – essentially a slew of chemicals that kill topical bacteria, including the good bacteria that is so vital for good skin health, are so ineffectual.

And then there’s steroidal protocols… don’t get me started on those! Just evil!!!

Emotional Issues & Skin Health

Wild As The Wind also believes that emotional issues, such as unrelenting stress from the pressures of modern life (everything from social media interactions through to the EMF that relays these disruptive messages to us, the competitiveness for reducing numbers of jobs, and the pace we are all expected to live our lives in order to be able to afford to buy all of the consumer goods at the rate industry wishes us to, etc etc etc…)

And, rather than applying toxic substances to our faces and further destroying our already over-sensitive digestive system with long-term antibiotic use, and even resorting to invasive, irreversible procedures, we advocate the simplicity of FACIAL OIL No. 7… for the topical treatment of dermal unbalances

Well, that, and the reduction of stress and the processing of painful or distressing emotions in a constructively healthy way… Plus, the removal of destructive chemicals and adulterated foods from our diets…

Fear and anxiety tend to weaken the stomach, and really stress the kidneys and bladder. This is why the stomach plays such a pivotal role in Skin health…

And then there’s good ol’ anger!

Anger & Skin Health

Most of our distressing emotions are expressed via anger. Fear gets turned into anger, as does loneliness and feelings of inferiority. Even sadness and the deeper darker depression often gain expression through anger.

This happens because we don’t want to feel those things. And, we usually don’t want to feel them because they would make us feel vulnerable if we did. And, of course, it’s painful!

So, they get transmuted into anger… much safer!

Anger keeps everybody at arms length. Usually much further. Some go so very far away, bouncing along on a wave of anger, that they’re never likely be seen again!

Oh yes! Result! It’s difficult to hone in on someones shame from that distance… or so we hope!

The Liver is the seat of all anger. (Ugh!!! As if it hasn’t got enough shit to deal with!!!)

Our poor, poor Livers!

But before I dive head first into a whole load of Liver related stuff, it’s probably better if I hang fire for a moment there… There is going to be a much longer and more  detailed article devoted to emotional and energetic healing published in the next two or three months, so, it’s best we only glance at, rather than glower at, this subject here.

Feeling Our Real Emotions Is Better For Our Skin

Suffice to say, there is a very big connection between avoiding feeling disarming and distressful emotions by transmuting them into anger and the condition of our Liver and the the bearing this has on the Skin….

Then there’s the things that genuinely make us angry, but we’re far too nice to express them… quite often women suffer from this one… go figure!

These have a nasty way of surfacing without any other form of conscious, demonstrable expression… via the Skin.

We have language to support these things :: Angry red rash, etc…

Here’s a 1 & 1/2 minute clip featuring Don Tolman as he explains about how to heal the Liver.

FACIAL OIL No. 7 Ingredients In Full

Castor Oil

Castor Oil, used throughout the ages, is profoundly cleansing.

Castor Oil deeply penetrates into the follicles to draw out dirt, bacteria, and excess oil from the skin, and removes dead skin cells without clogging the pores. It also helps in the detoxification process of the body, which is one of the first steps towards addressing the root cause of these distressing dermal conditions.

Castor oil has a comedogenic rating of one, which means that it is very easily absorbed into the skin. However, owing to the fact that it is comprised of 90% Ricinoleic Acid it can be very drying,

The reason it is so useful in the treatment of conditions such as acne is because it increases the rate of cell turnover in the skin. This also lends Castor Oil it’s anti-aging properties.

To truly obtain the benefits of this tremendously healing oil we advocate opening the pores with a sterile facecloth that has been boiled in filtered water for ten minutes. When the cloth has cooled sufficiently, but is still hot enough to open the pores, place it on the face for about twenty seconds. Remove and return the cloth to the hot water.

Quickly apply the FACIAL OIL No. 7 in gentle circular motions.

Wring all excess water from the face cloth again and return to the face, leaving it to assist the oil to sink ever deeper into the skin.

Castor Oil is very viscous and so needs to be diluted with other oils, like Jojoba…

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba is almost chemically identical to the natural sebum of the skin, so not only does it help dilute overly thickened sebum, but it also allows the other oils in FACIAL OIL No. 7 to be absorbed more easily.

It is a particularly important ingredient in the FACIAL OIL No. 7 blend owing to the Castor Oil content, (40%), which is highly viscose. However, it is a very important ingredient in it’s own right. Because Jojoba mimics the skin’s sebum so well it really helps with the treatment of dermal conditions such as Acne.

Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil is a beautiful oil for cleansing and moisturising acne prone and dermatologically challenged skin. It has amazing healing qualities, reversing scarring, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage.

Full of Vitamin A and C it really is one of the ultimate skin foods around!

Black Seed Oil, aka Nigella Sativa Oil

Black Seed Oil contains exceptionally high levels of anti-oxidants which make it extremely useful for healing damaged skin. For this reason, Black Seed Oil is growing increasingly popular for anti-aging skincare remedies.

Black Seed Oil is especially helpful at calming inflammation and accelerating healing, particularly scar tissue. It naturally softens, strengthens, and firms the skin. It is brilliant at healing almost all difficult dermal conditions and is even being used to treat skin cancer.

*Taken internally this oil is exceptionally curative and has anti-parasitic capabilities.

Black Currant Seed Oil

Black Currant Seed Oil is an amazing all-round healing oil that will help with practically every dermal problem. Excellent for treating Rosacea, Seborrheic Dermatitis, Eczema, and Psoriasis etc, owing to it’s skin regenerating abilities and it’s pacifying, anti-inflammatory qualities.

Sea Buckthorn Oil

Sea Buckthorn is a gloriously nutritive amber coloured oil. It has the ability to deeply penetrate the lipid layers of the skin, addressing imbalances and cleansing and nourishing the skin from the inside out. It reduces the appearance of redness and inflammation, soothing some of the more painful symptoms of the more troubling skin conditions.

It can be used to treat bacterially infected skin, even if the infection is suppurating. It, therefore, makes for a very effective treatment for Acne, Eczema, Skin Ulcers and Dermatitis. Sea Buckthorn also helps to heal cuts and wounds.

It helps counter the drying effects of the Castor Oil, and like Pomegranate Seed Oil it promotes new cell growth, making it as equally popular in high-end anti-aging formulations.

Sea Buckthorn Oil goes one step further than Pomegranate, however, as it promotes healthy skin structure and is even a mild sun screen. As conventional sun creams have been proven to be the leading cause of skin cancer, this is a very useful attribute.

In addition to it’s natural SPF factor it not only prevents sunburn but it provides sunburn relief after the fact as well. It is also considered useful in the treatment of stretch marks and in the treatment of vaginal atrophy among postmenopausal women.

Sea Buckthorn is, not surprisingly,  excellent for dry skin conditions. But, whilst alleviating the topical symptoms, it’s also essential to check dietary causes of dry skin, including vitamin and mineral deficiencies, like Magnesium insufficiency, as well as treating the topical discomfort.

The Sea Buckthorn Oil vitamin profile is something else!

Sea buckthorn can nearly be classified as the almighty wonder oil given its intensely rich nutritional profile, which includes vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D, E, K and P; carotenoids; flavonoids; amino acids; phenols; folic acid; organic acids; and 20 mineral elements, not to mention its essential fatty acid profile. It may be the only plant in the world to contain all four omegas: omega-3, omega-6, omega-7 and omega-9. That’s a powerfully healing cocktail.

Dr. Axe

Pomegranate Seed Oil

Pomegranate Seed Oil is extremely nourishing to the skin owing to it’s Omega 5 content. It is often found in high-end anti-aging formulations as it is blessed with ability to promote new cell growth.  This ability to prompt cell growth speeds up the recovery process of the skin after a breakout has begun to heal.

Pomegranate Seed Oil is also present in FACIAL OIL No. 2 and so it is entirely feasible to revert to using this oil once all of the broken skin has healed.

FACIAL OIL No. 7 Essential Oils

Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary Essential Oil is an immune boosting, hair restoring remedy that also provides mental clarity. But it’s because of it’s antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities that it’s been added to the FACIAL OIL No. 7 blend. It is considered beneficial in eliminating Eczema, Dermatitis, Oily Skin, and Acne and for toning the skin, bringing it back into balance by removing dryness.

Rosemary Essential Oil is an excellent brain and nerve tonic, which increases concentration and cognitive function as well as helping to stimulate mental activity.

On an emotional level it is an effective remedy for depression, reducing Cortisol and, therefore, stress, as well as mental fatigue, and forgetfulness.

It is our belief that Rosemary Essential Oil addresses most of the symptoms of leaky gut and broad spectrum food allergies, which we believe to be at the root cause of many dermal issues. We are also aware that, owing to environmental toxins, in the form of endocrine disrupting Xeno-oestrogens, hormone imbalance is likely to play a key role in many chronic skin conditions.

Rosemary Essential Oil’s role in reducing stress and supporting immune function (80% of which resides in the gut), are critically important factors in addressing the root cause of many skin, as well as cognitive, conditions.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender possesses antimicrobial and antioxidant characteristics. It soothes and nourishes the skin. It is very useful in the treatment of Acne, dry skin and, as with Frankincense Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil reduces the appearance of dark spots and scars caused by Acne.

The emotional constituents within this oil are equally important. Being distilled from the purple flower, Lavender Essential Oil correlates with the Third Eye Chakra, or energy centre, governed by the Pineal Gland, and is thus apt to treat the maladies of the mind. Or, more precisely, where the mind has taken prominence over the heart and the emotions, thereby repressing these elements of human existence.

As the third eye is there to intuit our best options and to help us see our way forward, this imbalance can be very crippling. Instead of employing the passive, female, intuitive principle the mind takes on the more egotistical, action-oriented, male principle. In this the brain tries to create its own solutions instead of being gently guided to that which nourishes and heals.

To be out of balance in this way will lead to physical and emotional imbalances, including insomnia and anxiety etc. When the mind eclipses our other important functions, and attempts to work in splendid isolation, there is always a very rapid downward spiral.

No-one truly knows what they think if they are unable to feel how they feel in relation to what they’re thinking about. We know what choices are healthy for us as an individual when we know how we feel. If something feels great, then it’s in our interest to say yes to it. If something feels awful, it clearly isn’t appropriate for us. The mind, if healthy, will opt to say no to this one!

Trying to make healthy choices using only the mind is like trying to decide which foods you like without having a sense of smell or taste. Not only is the task immensely hard, (futile, in fact), but, it is profoundly stressful. Dis-ease is never too far away when this type of imbalance occurs.

Plus, because the options in consideration all originate in the mind instead of being intuited from the all-knowing Universal Mind, the options being de-liberated over are pretty impoverished, anyway.

Lavender Essential Oil to the rescue!

Lavender will quiet the mind by re-mind-ing the individual how they feel. Stress and anxiety will rapidly flea in all directions out of the body when inhaling Lavender Essential Oil.

It will also provide clarity for the Third Eye, and, when less bound up it the notions of the mind, the stress, frustrations and anxiety will further reduce, and intuition will start to filter in again.

Yes, with the help of Lavender Essential Oil, normal service can be resumed!

It’s important to warm the FACIAL OIL No. 7 before application and inhale it a few times prior to placing it on the skin. Full instructions are available here: Facial Oil Application

Studies suggest that stress and acne are connected, which explains why people often experience acne flare-ups in times of increased pressure and indecision. This may be because cells that produce sebum (the natural moisturising substance produced in the skin to keep it conditioned and cleansed, that mixes with dead skin cells and bacteria, which, in turn, can clog the follicles), have receptors for stress hormones. Researchers believe that an increase in acne may be due to higher levels of sebum that are produced in times of stress; therefore, Lavender Essential Oil serves as a powerful tool because of its stress-reducing capabilities.

Stress, anger, frustration and anxiety can all trigger the production of sebum, and negative self-speak can usher in a battle of the dermis. Most of the essential oils go to work on an emotional level, but none more so than the wonderful Lavender Essential Oil.

Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil

As with Lavender Essential Oil, Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil has been clinically proven to uplift t the spirit.

Clary Sage Essential Oil

Clary Sage Essential Oil is another purple flowing plant, just like Lavender, and somewhat unsurprisingly, it helps with insomnia, as well as possessing adaptogenic abilities, thereby helping balance the hormones. In fact, at Wild As The Wind, we believe that Clary Sage Essential Oil Is the ultimate hormone balancing EO, and is particularly useful during times of major hormonal change, such as puberty and menopause.

Purple is the colour of the Third Eye or Pineal Gland. The Pineal Gland is at the top of the tree when it comes to hormone regulation. It’s effectively the master controller of the Endocrine System.

For more insights about the hormonal and emotional re-balancing properties of Clary Sage Essential Oil we recommend you read the section on Lavender Essential Oil as they have a lot in common.

Clary Sage Essential Oil is ultimately a soothing, anti-inflammatory, sebum regulating oil that is so abundantly antimicrobial that it will effectively treat bacterial strains that are already antibiotic-resistant, making it a very reliable Acne remedy.

Stress is a major cause of acne in adult women because it is associated with an increase in the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Phytotherapy Research found that the inhalation of clary sage oil has the ability to reduce these cortisol levels by 36%.

Researchers concluded that clary sage has a statistically significant effect on lowering cortisol levels, and it has an antidepressant effect, improving mood and fighting anxiety.

Dr Axe

It is interesting on an energetic level that more women are contracting conditions like Acne, especially in view of the fact that it is the female, passive, intuitive capacities that are being knocked out by mental and emotional imbalances on a Metaphysical level.

On a Physical level, women are being bombarded by a whole welter of Xeno-Oestrogens within our environments and skincare products, (we use this term reservedly in relation to mass produced, chemically augmented products), that are reeking havoc on our Endocrine Systems.

According to Folklore, the name Clary Sage is derived from the Latin Clarus, meaning, for clear eyes and was used as an ancient remedy for blurred sight and eye strain. These two conditions exemplify the problems when the mind overpowers the heart. We cannot envision the solutions to our problems because our powers of intuition are being eclipsed by the mind, and our eyes feverishly strain to try and see something to guide us forward.

But, instead of looking out Clary Sage re-minds us to listen to our hearts, Yes, the Clary Sage plant has heart shaped leaves. How beautiful!

My sense is that there is a marriage between the eminently feminine Clary Sage and the male vibration of Frankincense within this remedy, and, when they are ever paired in an oil blend.

We all share the male and female principles within us… it is the Spiritual path of mastery within the physical realm that will allow us to bring these two differing energies into synergistic balance.

I feel that Clary Sage raises the heart up to the mind, and Frankincense allows the mind to be receptive. How beautiful!

All Essential Oils have a part to play in our healing and enlightenment, but none more so than Clary Sage and Frankincense.

Healing comes from an Anglo Saxon word meaning ‘whole’.

All dis-ease is simply that. Being out of sorts and ill at ease. Energetic dis-ease leads to physical dis-ease.

Plant energies and aromas captured in Essential Oils heal the body by healing the heart and mind.

Blessed be the plants and trees,

For they know not our beguiling rationality.

They, forever attuned with That Which Creates All,

Will impart the secrets of the heavens and human hearts enthrall.

They will reveal that the secrets in our hearts sway to the same rhythm as the Uni-verse,

And they will re-mind us that we co-create with The Great White Spirit when our Free Will is served

Come ye, give gratitude freely, and enjoy this scared dance,

For we fade like butterflies before the Yew that has transcended ancient times.




Tea Tree Essential Oil

Profoundly antiseptic and antimicrobial Tea Tree is a critical oil in this remedial facial oil.

We recommend FACIAL OIL No. 7 when people have an active dermal outbreak that needs treating. This is particularly true where Acne is concerned, as an active outbreak will mean a lack of balance in facial bacteria, the bad bacteria almost certainly outnumbering the good. Tea Tree will help redress the balance.

Tea Tree Essential Oil helps to gently cleanse the skin, as well as providing antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions. Tea Tree has also been clinically proven to reduce lesion numbers in Acne Vulgaris sufferers.
