Product Review: Amrit Organic Beautifying OilsBy Natural Organics
Do you realize many of us have years and years of “stuff” collected in our colons? Ok, I don’t want to gross you out, but it’s true! Last week I decided to go get a colonic….I’d had a series of them before and nothing can match the feeling of energy you get after having one. It literally cleanses you of all the old “junk” and toxins your colon stubbornly holds on to. I am blessed to have found a local colon hydrotherapist who is also an expert in Ayuvedic medicine. The practice of Ayuveda is “a system of traditional medicine native to India and practiced in other parts of the world as a form of alternative medicine.” While receiving my treatment, my therapist often gives me many other remedies I can use for assorted problems. In Ayuveda, you can easily figure out your “dosha” or mind and body type. Realizing your dosha can alleviate many problems, including weight loss and skin problems. My therapist somehow knew I was a “kapha” type. Go here to take a quiz to determine your dosha. It’s actually very fascinating to realize you really do display some of the characteristics of one of the types! You might be wondering…what does all this have to do with today’s post? I recently was able to sample a skin care line featuring a line of Ayuvedic products! I’ll tell you all about my experience…
Essential Oils Uses
One of my favorite natural substances to use is organic essential oils…in fact, I keep my oils in a little red box in my night stand for easy access. Oils are versatile….I’ve used them to flavor tooth powder, make an anti-cellulite serum, and even a deodorizing carpet powder! But the best method for essential oils is in skin care. Sometimes it can be a bit confusing mixing them up by yourself. This is where Amrit Organic comes in. Amrit takes the guess work out of it by providing spa quality essential oil serums for just about every aspect of beauty you can imagine. Amrit caters to spa professionals and those of us concerned with wellness. They have some very impressive qualifications which make them a safe choice for your spa and skin care needs:
- Certified by QAI and OCTO
- Approved by the USDA
- No synthetics, chemicals, toxins, preservatives, or foreign materials
- No parabens or fragrance
All these facts make Amrit a great option for those of us who don’t like to make our own essential oil mixtures and still want to use a safe and quality blend. In this review I’ll focus on the serums, but remember Amrit also offers spa products for the face, body, and hair. I haven’t tried these but they sound amazing. Lemonage and Raw Skin Care are some of their new products. You can learn more on their Spa Specifics site. Now on to the review!
The great thing about their serums is that they have a different blend for each skin type and can even mix a blend personalized for you (wow!) The blend I used was customized for normal to oily skin. It contains lavender, lemongrass, and geranium in a base of sunflower, jojoba, olive oil, and vitamin E. These certified organic oils not only smell wonderful but provide the skin with anti-oxidants, hydration, skin brightening, and rejuvenation. This mix is also versatile. You can use it in the bath or as a night serum. I chose the latter and massaged gently into my skin after I cleansed in the evening. After a few weeks use, I noticed my skin was more hydrated and looking better! A little goes a long way (don’t overdo it or you will end up looking like a greased monkey!) It comes in a 3.75 oz. glass jar and sells for $25 (pretty good deal if you ask me because you use only a little each time, it will last!)
They also have four other blends available for your skin care needs:
Beauty Blend- Anti-aging and dry skin
Balance Blend- Anti-stress and reducing muscle pain
Lavender- Cleansing and purifying (for oily skin)
Signature- Sensitive skin, healing, and calming (unscented)
Amrit’s Ayuvedic Oils (four different varieties are offered) are based on Ayuvedic healing and beautifying principles. They offer oils based on each dosha as well. I used this oil blend ( a mix of certified organic sunflower, olive, jojoba, geranium, juniper, cypress, and lemon oils) in my baths. It especially came in handy after my colonic when I decided to go on a liver cleanse. It really helped me to detox even further. From their site: “Garshan Detox Oil has stimulating action and is rich in aromatic essences. This precious oil can be massaged on the body where ever you want to smooth and eliminate cellulite, massage into the body first, then added to warm bathing water for a regular detoxifying whole body home spa treatment and used before retiring at night for a therapeutic rest and detoxification.” Fantastic and a real bargain at just $16. (Are they REALLY only charging $16??)
It seems like no matter how much lip balm I put on, I always ending up licking it off and my lips still seem dry. I used this serum mostly at night but can be used in the day as well (provides a great base for lipstick.) It’s designed to reverse the aging of lips (you know, wrinkly lip syndrome,) renew cells and keep lips smooth and wrinkle free. It really helped keep my lips moist with 3 simple ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Freeze Dried Aloe, and Organic Lavender Oil. It’s in an easy to use roll on.
Also in a roll on, this eye serum smells absolutely amazing. I usually would take a deep whiff before I rolled it gently under my eyes. I am turning the big 3-5 soon and started seeing little lines under my eyes…this serum helped reduce the appearance of them while hydrating my under eye area. I usually used it right before bed as well so the healing oils could penetrate during the night. It contains organic jojoba, aloe, and chamomile (that’s probably why it smells so good. I love the smell of chamomile!)
For another organic oil option, try 100% Pure’s Nourishing Facial Oil, a light, nourishing oil full of protective anti-oxidants to promote youthful skin. Contains grapeseed oil, lavender oil, and alpha lipoic acid. Click here to visit 100% Pure.
So on a scale of 1-10, I definitely would give Amrit Organic a 10. You can’t beat their qualifications (they’re also a member of the Organic Trade Association) or their safe pure ingredients. If you were wondering about essential oils uses before, you are in the dark no longer, because Amrit makes it easy and affordable to holistically treat your skin problems. Not only that, you’ll really enjoy the aromatherapy aspect of their blends. What are some of your favorite ways to use essential oils? Are you also a fan of colon hydrotherapy? I’d love to hear your stories in the comment section below.
