Using pure, natural essential oils, and base oils, within our acclaimed Wild As The Wind face oil range, means that no preservatives or toxic chemicals are needed to stabilise the formulations. Nor are they needed to extend shelf life, unlike all the big brands on the High Street and in our department stores.

Wild As The Wind Facial Oil Shelf Life & Allergy Advice
Wild As The Wind facial oils have a 6 month ‘period after opening’.
FACIAL OIL No. 2 is the most popular Wild As The Wind face oil. It has been tested on thousands of people with only a small handful of people, (single figures), who have had any kind of a reaction to it. These individuals are, sadly, highly likely to be be hypersensitive due to undiagnosed allergies etc.
I would definitely recommend Wild As The Wind, particularly for anyone with sensitive and/or problematic skin. Thanks for being natural and fabulous x
It is important to remember our bodies grow accustomed to the same ingredients used every day. It is therefore essential to intersperse the use of your favourite face oil with another product to ensure continued efficacy. This is why FACIAL OIL No. 8 was created. FACIAL OIL No. 8 is lighter than FACIAL OIL No. 2, but it has been developed to achieve the same benefits as FACIAL OIL No. 2.
The few very mild reactions recorded have all been very short-lived… with those displaying some kind of reaction professing an increase in colour to the skin, (pink), and an increase in temperature of the skin in a couple of cases, (warmth). In all cases the mild responses to Facial Oil No. 2 were localised to the test area to which the oil was applied.
*We advise a patch test on the soft skin on the underside of the forearm prior to use on the face.
The reason I love the No 2 facial oil is for a long time now, and I mean a long time now, I have only used Dermalogica skin smoothing cream as my skin can be very dry and sensitive. But, after using Facial Oil No 2 I find my skin feels softer and has more of a youthful look.
Wild As The Wind Facial Oils Are FREE FROM:
- Synthetic chemicals
- Synthetic preservatives
- Synthetic fragrances
- Synthetic colours and dyes
- All of the nasties listed in Skincare Ingredients To Avoid
Facial Oil Absorption
Properly blended facial oils are as easily absorbed as creams, and are usually a lot more healthy for the skin than the mass produced products.
In fact, facial oils are a lot more similar to the oils found within our facial skin, so they actually absorb better than creams in most cases.
And No! Facial oils DON’T make our skin greasy!
★★★★★ 5 Star Etsy Review… Last year, by chance I bumped into Rachel on Corn Street in Bristol and bought a sample of facial oil No.2. I’m now on my third bottle and haven’t looked back.
For those of you concerned that putting oil on your face sounds like it will actually give you greasy skin, dismiss this immediately… the opposite is true. I can honestly say (and I’m not being paid to say this) that my skin has never felt so soft and supple. The oil is easy to apply. I use about 6 drops per application and it smells just lovely.
Rachel is a great lady too and if you ever see her in Bristol, stop and chat, she’ll have some great advice for you. xx

Why Use A Facial Oil?
There’s a whole host of reasons for trading in your face creams for facial oils. Here’s just a few of the more compelling ones…
- A good facial oil will often be chemical free. (But, not always, so remember to check the label.)
- The chemicals in big brand creams are doing you no good at all. Check out the worst offenders in Skincare Ingredients To Avoid.
- The first ingredient in face creams is usually innocuous enough… WATER, or AQUA, as it is usually termed, or even disguised as De-Ionised Herbal Infusion(!!!)… And, unless it says that it’s purified, then it’s tap water! The first ingredient is the one being used in the largest quantity within the face product. Creams are typically anywhere between 75% and 95% water. Yup! That’s between 75% and 95% water!!! Are you happy to be paying big brand prices for something which is mostly tap water?
- There’s no water in facial oil!
- The water in face creams tend to evaporate before they are absorbed, taking with them important nutrients.
- A lot of the chemicals in creams will dry out the skin. In it’s defence, the skin will start producing more sebum. The skin grows increasingly oily and users run the risk of suffering from blocked pores, blackheads and even Acne.
- A lot of very expensive anti-ageing creams are 75% water.
- Did I mention that there’s no water in facial oils?
A face oil has to work hard. It usually has be be suitable for combination skin, like our biggest selling face oil, bought primarily for it’s anti-ageing and it’s anti-Acne abilities: FACIAL OIL No.2
But, the job doesn’t stop there. Wild As The Wind face oils can also help to reduce:
- Hormonal issues, caused by gut dysbiosis, that trigger all manner of skin eruptions, including Psoriasis, Eczema, Vitiligo, Rosacea, Dermatitis and Acne
- Age spots, thread veins and dark rings under the eyes
- Scarring, lighten discolouration and diminish blemishes
- Systemic toxicity that trigger all manner of dermal eruptions
- Fungal skin conditions
FACIAL OIL No. 2 mediates many of the symptoms of these, and other dermal conditions, and it is even formulated to speed up wound healing and reduce the appearance of scars. The same is true of FACIAL OIL No. 8, of course.
Facial Oil For Acne
Whilst, to some, the idea of putting an oil on Acne would seem like dowsing a fire with fuel, there is actually no better way of topically improving the condition of Acne than with a facial oil that is specifically formulated for Acne-prone skin. All of the Wild As The Wind face oils are formulated to rid the skin of Acne, and a lot of the scarring that goes with it.

No. 2 Face Oil Versus No. 8
FACIAL OIL No. 2 is ideal for most people, even for those with combination skin. But, those with very small pores, or who live in hot countries may be better off with FACIAL OIL No. 8.
FACIAL OIL No. 8 is developed for people with very small pores, or for all of us in the summertime, and / or, who live in hot countries. It is hormone balancing and will achieve very similar results as the other oils, but is just better for fine skin and hotter climes.
Further information on Acne
FACIAL OIL No. 2
FACIAL OIL No. 2 is the Wild As The Wind Anti-Ageing Ultra facial treatment oil which contains the optimal amount of Rose Essential Oil to kill 100% of the bacteria that causes Acne. FACIAL OIL No. 2 will also provide instant symptomatic relief for Eczema and Psoriasis, as well as healing the skin over time.
Relationship issues, and affairs of the heart are best healed by FACIAL OIL No. 2, however.
FACIAL OIL No. 8
Face Oil No. 8 is best suited to those of a tropical temperament. It’s an elegant, lightweight oil that is deeply cooling and curative. It is also hormone balancing, for both men and women, and is ideal for hot holidays and British summertime.
Face Oils All Round
But, the truth be known, all of the Wild As The Wind facial oils will go a long way to easing every kind of dermal condition, albeit in a slightly different way, and all of them will reduce the appearance of ageing, scarring and discolouration… or else, what’s the point…?
*However, I can’t stress this enough… To completely heal all dermal conditions, for good, it is vital to get to the root cause of the problem.
Gut issues, which inevitably lead to hormonal issues, are always at the root of dermal issues!
Facial Oil For Eczema & Psoriasis
Wild As The Wind face oils may help to reduce the symptoms of Eczema and Psoriasis.
FACIAL OIL No. 2, may also reduce symptoms and scarring, and will also go to work on old scars and blemishes.
I purchased Facial Oil No. 2 at Shepton Mallet market, primarily for my face, but I mentioned that I also suffered from eczema on my hand, and it was quite bad. Within 10 minutes of [the] application of a couple of drops [of FACIAL OIL No. 2, which I rubbed in, the redness had died down, and the discomfort, which had been 7/10, was almost gone within the hour!
Rebecca, Shepton Mallet
FACIAL OIL No. 8 will also likely improve these conditions, and provide symptomatic relief. It is important to test these oils in person, if you can, to see which one best suits you as an individual.
If this isn’t possible, I recommend buying 10ml bottles and conducting your own trials.
Facial Oils For Stress & Emotional Health
FACIAL OIL No. 2 and FACIAL OIL No. 8 all have unique ways of de-stressing us.
FACIAL OIL No. 2 contains two essential oils that are clinically proven to be uplifting, (Rose and Sweet Orange Essential Oil), and both Geranium Rose Essential Oil and Rose Essential Oil are clinically proven to help with depression and anxiety.
FACIAL OIL No. 8 has the ability to gently cleanse the emotions, albeit on a profound level. It is heat reducing and so will ameliorate enflamed emotions, subduing the tendency to react in anger… allowing our more authentic emotions to be expressed instead. (We often react in anger when we are hurt and upset… this oil allows you to feel these emotions beneath the anger so that we can decide to give ourselves a hug, or ask for a hug, instead of lashing out… sometimes a self-hug is a warm cup of cocoa and curling up under a duvet on the coach with a great book…)
Face Oil At Night
Many of the essential oils in all of these facial oils will improve the quality of your sleep, and thus it’s great to apply them at night.
Night time applications are also ideal in terms of the healing of your skin. The body repairs itself when we are sleeping, and so an application of a Wild As The Wind facial oil just before bedtime will not only aid restful sleep, it will also optimally improve the condition of your facial skin.
All of this means, of course, that people who use Wild As The Wind facial oils are less likely to have a stress induced outbreak again in the future.
I believe that stress is the main precursors to poor health. Finding healthy ways of managing stress and alleviating anger is one of the first steps towards healing dermal conditions for good.

Important Resources For Destressing
Facial Oil For Wrinkles
Facial oils for wrinkles can work incredibly well. Rosehip is considered to be the best anti-wrinkle base oil, and Frankincense Essential Oil is considered the best anti-wrinkle essential oil. But, this isn’t the whole story… nor should it be. Rose Essential Oil and Geranium Rose Essential Oil both promote collagen, and continued use of these essential oils in a face oil blend will reduce the appearance of wrinkles also.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil is such an antioxidant powerhouse that has an anti-wrinkle effect on our facial skin… and anywhere else for that matter!
The Wild As The Wind FACIAL OIL No. 2 contains all of these extremely healing oils, and quite a few other besides.
Facial Oil For Anti-Ageing
Hmmm…! Didn’t we just cover that?
Well no… not exactly…
Anti-ageing means to prevent ageing, whereas, applying serums to reduce the appearance of wrinkles is all about trying to reverse what has already happened.
Fortunately quite a few essential oils and base oils that are really good at reversing the signs of ageing are also excellent at preventing ageing from occurring in the first instance.
And… guess what…?
Yep! We went and put those in our FACIAL OIL No. 2 as well!
There’s good reason why we call FACIAL OIL No. 2 our Anti-Ageing Ultra Facial Oil ♥
But, that’s not to underestimate the anti-ageing benefits of FACIAL OIL No. 8 also. All the Wild As The Wind Face Oils are incredibly anti-ageing!
Facial Oil Longevity
Adding pure vitamin E helps to stabilise some of the more delicate oils, such as the queen of all base oils, Rosehip.
However, the Wild as The Wind facial oil range includes so many oils that are naturally rich in Vitamin E, we don’t see the need for using this processed oil. We are only really interested in using complete oils, in their natural state, as we believe the complete form of the oil is more beneficial in many ways. We only really advocate using concentrated oil isolates to treat a specific skin condition, and only then in extreme circumstances.
Instead we advocate that you buy facial oils in small amounts to avoid issues of rancidity. Our 30ml bottles of blended facial oil is an ideal size for an individual user. Our 50ml bottle, which is our largest bottle of facial oil, is ideal for households with multiple users.
*Larger quantities available on request.
Novel Uses Of Face Oil
I do love the oil and have found a new use for it too. During the winter my hands get very dry and I suddenly had the great idea of rubbing the oil into my hands and wearing cotton gloves. The difference was amazing and I saw a result in the first few days.
Wild As The Wind Facial Oils
The oils we use in our skincare range are incredibly potent, all offering different healing properties that, when combined, become a powerhouse of anti-aging, skin repairing, blemish dissolving, scar healing, incredibly soothing, skin food that also smell amazing.
Currently we offer our full facial oil range and a number of our cleansers via our Etsy shop…
Natural oils are pure nourishment for our besieged and beleaguered skin. Some people suffer more in winter, whilst others find summer more challenging… but, whatever the season, our skin, particularly, exposed skin on face hands and neck, is generally taking a battering.
Wild As The Wind sources all base oils and essential oils from reputable suppliers who chemically test the oils for purity.
Essential oil adulteration is a big problem. Somewhere between 75% and 98% of all essential oils, being sold around the world today, have been adulterated in one form or another. Essential Oil adulteration is often done with synthetic substances, that mimic the natural aromas of the essential oils, and other constituents within the oils. These synthetic adulterants are often toxic and transform perfectly healthy oils into substances that should carry a health warning.
It is, therefore, vital that Wild As The Wind is continually vigilant in sourcing the highest quality oils and the most affordable prices.
We rely on our suppliers to thoroughly process the GC-MS tests performed on each batch of oil to ensure optimal purity and safety.
GC-MS, or Gas Chromatography testing, of an essential oil, is the only way of determining the potency and purity of, and therefore, the healing properties an essential oil possesses. It is also the process used to determine whether there is anything present in an essential oil or base oil that shouldn’t be there
GC-MS reports will thus identify any adulterated components found in an essential oil, making them vitally important when it comes to essential oil safety and efficacy.
It’s the highly prized, incredibly healing oils that command the high prices, such as Rose and Sandalwood Essential Oils, and because of this it’s these oils that are often adulterated to increase monetary gain.
The more hands an oil passes through, the more likely it will be adulterated…
Rose & Sandalwood Essential Oils
We buy our Organic Rose Oil Essential Oil directly from the organic producer in Bulgaria.
Our latest batch of Mysore Sandalwood Essential Oil has been supplied by an Apothecary who has been supplying oils and herbs since the late 1800’s.
Low Grade Essential Oils Versus Medicinal Grade Essential Oils
To understand the difference between low-grade essential oils and medicinal grade essential oils, all you have to do is listen to Dr. Eric Zelinski, one of the world’s leading experts in essential oils, talk about his own personal revelation in using essential oils… In the video below Dr. Z, as he’s often referred to, describes how he went from a skeptic to a world class advocate of essential oils after starting to use the correct quality of essential oils.
Adulterated essential oils, just like watered down alcohol, aren’t going to have the desired effect!
Facial Oils Are Aromatic & Healing
All of the Wild As The Wind facial oils are gorgeously aromatic as well as profoundly healing. In fact, in some instances, the aroma of an essential oil alone has been scientifically proven to have curative properties.
Perhaps the most commonly known aromatic cure is the de-stressing and soporific qualities of Lavender Essential Oil. And, of course, people have been using Lavender EO for these purposes for centuries, but science has finally corroborated what we knew all along.
Whilst it is now possible to make scientifically based claims, courtesy of the tireless work being done by Sayer Ji and the team at Green Med Info it is important to remember that even the most pure of oils can’t make up for a bad diet, chronic stress and social isolation etc, and no skin is ever going to look good if it isn’t properly hydrated and nourished from the inside.
This is why WIld As The Wind focus as much on disseminating critically important health information, via this website and within our Talks and Workshops. Subscribe to the Wild As The Wind Blog for regular articles on how to stay healthy, remove excessive stress from your life, and eliminate anger in the most fun ways possible.
Essential Oil-Free Facial Oils
As mentioned above, the aromatic component of the Wild As The Wind facial oils contribute to the healing nature of our products.
However, not everyone can tolerate essential oils due to allergy issues, and pregnant woman cannot use facial oils with essential oils that are emmenagogues, which stimulate blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus, and can stimulate menstruation… So, this means that FACIAL OIL No. 2 is not an option for expectant mums because essential oils, like Rose and Myrrh, are emmenagogues.
However, this doesn’t mean that facial oils made from base oils alone are without an aromatic component. Essential oil-free facial oils can be very fragrant, as well as very colourful!
Wild As The Wind developed an essential-oil free alternative to FACIAL OIL No. 2, especially for expectant mums, but we hardly sold a bottle.
Because some of the oils, like Rosehip oil, have a relatively short shelf life we couldn’t justify ciontinuing the production of this oil.
However, if you really want a bottle of essential oil-free facial oil you can send us an email and request that we send you a bottle. We’d be more than happy to oblige!
The cost of a 30ml bottle of essential oil-free facial oil is £22.00 plus postage and packaging will be charged in addition to this if you are unable to collect from Wells, Somerset.
Wild As The Wind use a number of resources when deciding which formulas to put together for optimal healing and efficacy.
We owe a particular debt to GreenMedInfo, and, of course, the teachings of Penny Price.
We are seeing much more really valuable insights being published on essential oils appearing on more conventionally focused sites such as PubMed.
