Wild As The Wind Facial OilsFacial Oils

Blending natural oils is a great way of creating a deeply moisturising, gently healing, soothing and uplifting facial balm that doesn’t need preservatives or toxic chemicals to stabilise the formulation and extend shelf life. 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 available on the High Street.

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…

  1. A good facial oil will often be chemical free. (But, not always, so remember to check the label.)
  2. The chemicals in big brand creams are doing you no good at all. Check out the worst offenders in Skincare Ingredients To Avoid.
  3. 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 that is used in the largest quantity within the face product. Creams are typically anywhere between 50% and 70% water. Yup! That’s between 50% and 70% water!!! Are you happy to be paying big brand prices for something that is mostly tap water?
  4. There’s no water in facial oil!
  5. The water in face creams tend to evapourate before they are absorbed, taking with them important nutrients.
  6. A lot of the chemicals in creams will dry out the skin. in it’s defense 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.
  7. A lot of very expensive anti-ageing creams are 70% water.
  8. Did I mention that there’s no water in facial oils?

Facial Oil

A facial oil has to work hard. It usually has be be suitable for combination skin, like our biggest selling facial oil, bought primarily for it’s anti-aging properties: FACIAL OIL No.2

But, the job doesn’t stop there. Facial oil also has to deal with:

  • Hormonal issues that trigger things like acne
  • Gut issues that trigger things like Eczema
  • Systemic toxicity that trigger things like Psoriasis

FACIAL OIL No. 2 mediates many of the symptoms of these, and other dermal conditions, but we do not advise the use of this facial oil on broken skin. When the skin has healed sufficiently, with something like our Dermal Defense FACIAL OIL No. 7, however, this immensely healing oil will reduce scarring, lighten discolouration and diminish blemishes.

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. The Wild As The Wind FACIAL OIL No. 7 is just that. But, not only will it topically support acne on every level, including emotionally, it will also provide symptomatic relief for eczema and psoriasis etc.

In addition, FACIAL OIL No. 7 will also reduce the appearance of aging, scarring and discolouration…

But, the truth be known, all of the Wild As The Wind facial oils will go a long way to easing all of these conditions, albeit in a slightly different way, and all of them will reduce the appearance of aging, scarring and discolouration… or else, what’s the point…?

Facial Oil For Eczema & Psoriasis

As mentioned, the Wild As The Wind FACIAL OIL No. 7 provides symptomatic relief for eczema and psoriasis etc. This means that it will ease surface tension, reducing discomfort and the risk of the skin fracturing, it will diminish itching and it will often reduce redness also.

But this oil (and FACIAL OIL No. 2, when used on unbroken skin), will 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!

In addition, as well as being retroactive, FACIAL OIL No. 7 has a profound healing effect on deep seated emotional dissonance, bringing the user back into a better state of accord. This, of course, means that the sufferer is less likely to have a stress induced outbreak again in the future.

We believe that stress is one of 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.

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 Essential Oil both promote collagen, and continued use of these essential oils in a face oil blend will reduce the appearance of wrinkles also.

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 ♥

Facial Oil Longevity

Adding pure vitamin E oil will not only enhance the healing properties of the oil blends, but it will also help stabalise some of the more delicate oils, such as the queen of all facial oils, Rosehip.

However, the Wild as The Wind facial oil range includes so many oils that are naturally rich in Vitamin E, we tend to use 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. 30ml or 50ml bottles of blended facial oil are ideal sizes for an individual user. Our 100ml bottle is our largest bottle of facial oil, and is ideal for households with multiple users.

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.

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

Essential oil adulteration is a big problem. Over 75% of all essential oils being sold around the world today have been adulterated in one form or another, often with synthetic substances that mimic the natural aromas 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.

Star Child LogoWe rely on suppliers such as Star Child in Glastonbury 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 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, thus 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.

Rose & Sandalwood Essential Oils

For example, the Star Child Rose Essential Oil would retail at around £130.00 for 5ml of pure Rose Essential Oil if they were to actively sell it.

Both Sandalwood and Rose Essential Oils are ingredients in our incredibly healing No.2 FACIAL OIL, and so it is critical that we ensure the purity of these high value Essential Oils, and, of course, all of the others too.

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.

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 and 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.

Other great resources that we refer to regularly are:
