Easy Stress Reliever! Try a Salt, Lavender and Argan Oil Healing Bath

By | Argan Oil, DIY Beauty Recipes, Products, Self Care | No Comments

While you can’t be relaxed in every moment, employing stress-releasing rituals to create balance and harmony is a must. It’s important to keep daily stress to a minimum or else it can turn into a more serious illness. One of the easiest and most relaxing ways to release stress is to take a healing salt bath.

Remember how you felt the last time you took a swim in the ocean? Most likely, you felt both refreshed and exhilarated. You can simulate the experience and cleanse yourself at the same time by taking a few baths every week.

A bath is a great transition ritual after coming home from work to relax into your evening. You only need three natural ingredients for a quick stress release and an energetic pick-me up. If you’ve been upset by a person or situation, feel nervous about a present problem or anticipating a future decision, you can take this time in a bath to meditate, listen to spiritual music, do a healing visualization, or read the gratitude prayer below.

Ingredients

Salt. For centuries, sea salt has been used for cleansing and it’s one of the best remedies for clearing unhealthy energy, both physically and emotionally. Different from Epsom salt (which is great for sore muscles), sea salt disintegrates dirty energy. Dirty energy is associated with stress, pain, anger, fear and negative emotions. You can buy bulk sea salt online, get it from a local grocery store, or (when in a pinch) use regular table salt from your pantry.

Lavender essential oil. Lavender is one of the best remedies for clearing emotional upset. The color vibration of lavender lessens the emotional charge and relaxes the nervous system. The aromatherapy benefits of lavender have also been shown to relieve tension. In fact, the University of Maryland Medical Center states “research has confirmed that lavender produces slight calming, soothing, and sedative effects when its scent is inhaled.”

Organic argan oil. 100% pure organic argan oil from Morocco is extremely healing and infuses the skin with loads of anti-oxidants, protecting it from unhealthy free radicals. The skin is the largest organ in your body and when you are relaxing in a warm bath, your skin easily absorbs the vitamins, nutrients and essential fatty acids in the argan oil. It will also soften and moisturize every inch of your body, hair and scalp. You can apply it after the bath for extra hydration as well. (Click here for 10 ways to use Argan oil in your daily beauty routine.)

 

Directions for your healing salt bath:

1. Draw a warm bath and put two to three cups of sea salt in the water.

2. Add 10 drops of lavender essential oil.

3. Add a dropper full of pure, organic argan oil.

4. Relax in the salt bath for at least 20 minutes.

5. Make sure that the majority of your body is covered with the salt water at some point during bathing.

6. Visualize healing white light filling your entire body. Imagine that the light is flushing all physical, emotional, and mental stress out of your hands and feet and being disintegrated immediately.

7. Bonus prayer: To go the extra mile in self-care, you can say a prayer for whole body blessings while you bathe. Print and laminate it. It’s a wonderful way to get in a state of gratitude for your beautiful body and invoke blessings for well-being.

Salt baths are an easy, go-to stress reliever. They’re one of the most enjoyable ways to enhance your quality of life. Soak your stress away.

11 Head-to-Toe Beauty Uses for Organic Argan Oil

By | About Argan Oil, Argan Oil, Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir, Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Natural Hair Care, Products, Skin Care Products | No Comments

If you want to de-clutter your cabinet and simplify your beauty routine, organic argan oil can become your go-to beauty elixir from head-to-toe.  It’s chock-full of essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that promote your overall health by moisturizing, softening as well as protecting your face and hair from sun damage – without harmful toxins and Parabens.

Below are 11 ways to use organic argan oil in your daily life:

1)      Face Moisturizer – After cleansing morning and/or night, massage a few drops of argan oil directly onto your face and neck. Since argan is considered a dry oil, it absorbs quickly and is not greasy. If you want to use it as a serum, apply your night cream after the oil absorbs into the skin. You can also try this rose-infused argan face serum.

2)      Hydrating Toner – Add a few drops of argan oil to your favorite facial toner to hydrate and tone simultaneously. You can make your own toner by adding a few drops of argan oil to Rose or Orange Blossom water.

3)      Rejuvenating & Brightening Face Mask – Add a few drops of argan oil to your store-bought mask. Alternatively, make your own mask by mixing 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 3 teaspoons of Greek-style yogurt, 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 drops of argan oil in a bowl. Apply on a clean, dry face and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

4)      Exfoliating Lip Scrub and Moisturizer – To smooth and moisturize your lips, add a few drops of argan oil and vanilla extract to fine brown sugar. Lightly massage into lips using circular motion and rinse off.

5)      Face Glow – Add a drop or two of argan oil to your foundation, bronzer or tinted moisturizer for a dewy, luminous glow.

6)      Eye Moisturizer – Apply argan oil to the delicate skin around your eyes morning and night. It absorbs quickly so foundation can be after five minutes. Also, if your under eye concealer is drying, add a drop of argan oil to it. It will help spread the concealer more easily and create a more natural look. You can also try this Argan-based eye serum.

7)      Leave-on Conditioner – After the shower, while your hair is still wet, add a few drops of argan oil to your hair, ends and scalp to hydrate and moisturize. It’s especially nourishing if your hair is dry from daily use of a blow dryer, straight-iron or curling iron. You can also try this Argan and Rose hair elixir.

8)      Hair Styling Shine – When your hair is dry, use as a styling product by adding a few drops of argan oil to the palms of your hand. Rub your hands together and run your fingers through your hair to create shine and tame frizz. You only need a small amount. It lasts a long time.

9)      Overnight Hair Treatment – Massage a generous amount of argan oil into your hair, ends and scalp. Wrap your hair and leave it on while you sleep. In the morning, wash your hair and you’ll have luminous, soft locks.

10)      Cuticle and Heel Softener – Massage a few drops of argan oil into your cuticles to soften, moisturize and encourage nail growth. Use as an overnight treatment to nourish cracked heels by working a good amount into your feet and toes. Cover with socks and wake up to supple feet.

11)   Body and Bath Oil – Add a few drops of argan oil directly onto your skin, into the bath or body lotion. It’s safe to use on a baby and to help minimize stretch marks on a pregnant belly too.

Zweena Argan Eye Serum – A New Favorite for Megan at Seed to Serum!

By | Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Press, Products, Reviews | No Comments

“A fantastic new launch from Zweena – the Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum.

Not only is this serum filled to the brim with some of my absolute favorite oils (think argan, baobab, marula, and kalahari melon seed!), but it also comes packaged in the sleekest hot pink rollerball. 

Though I’m generally not to keen on eye products, I’ve recently started to notice the beginnings of dreaded milia. I’ve heard that the best way to attack the pesky little bumps is to moisturize them. I thought I had been moisturizing the area, but apparently not well enough. As luck would have it, a little bottle of Zweena Eye Serum fell into my lap. Within two days of using the serum, the milia had practically disappeared.”

Zweena definitely mixes a little bit of magic into this serum! It is the perfect combination of nourishing and lightweight. I highly recommend it!”

Edible Facial Review – Zweena’s Two Luscious Rose-Infused Products!

By | Argan Oil, Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir, Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum, Natural Hair Care, Products, Reviews | No Comments

Thanks to Sarita Coren of EdibleFacial.com for her enthusiastic review of our new Eye Serum and Hair Elixir below!

 

If you are a lover of roses, then you are going to want every single product that ZWEENA Argan Beauty offers. The line’s signature ingredient is organic argan oil, known for its wrinkle-reducing, frizz-taming, and skin-balancing powers. It’s no wonder that multi-tasking argan oil has become ubiquitous in the beauty world.

“But what takes ZWEENA over the top gorgeous is the infusion of Rose Damascena Oil, extracted from thousands of roses. Take one whiff of these simple, yet well-formulated products and you immerse in the heady scent. And let me tell you, not every product captures roses like these do.”

According to Jayme Barrettco-founder of Zweena Argan Beauty, the source of the rose oil makes a world of difference. It is hydrodistilled at low temperatures from thousands of freshly picked roses grown in the Valley of the Roses, a place located between the Sahara Desert and the Atlas Mountains.

Argan Ultra-Nourish Eye Serum

I found that one drop alone covers my eye area. The full-sized product comes with a roll-on applicator for easy use and no spillage. When it comes to ingredients, this serum merges some heavy-hitters to nab fine lines, boost elasticity and collagen, and fight free-radicals.

Marula, Baobab, and Kalahari Melon Seed oils fuse together some of the top anti-aging ingredients around. Camellia and Rosehip Seed oils, personal favorites, enhance collagen production and wrinkle reduction, while Meadowfoam Seed oil locks in moisture.

“Once again, the real treasure for me is the fragrance. I want to breathe it in all day and happily indulge in those fleeting moments of application and inhalation. “

Rose oil contains over 300 compounds that nourish the skin, reduce redness and inflammation, as well as treat it with regenerating, repairing, and hydrating properties.

Argan Rose Lustrous Hair Elixir

The hair elixir also incorporates argan oil and the most incredible scent (something I really love in a hair product). It comes in a pump bottle to dispense the right amount, which for me is one small drop massaged into my palms and then worked into the ends of my tresses. (Oh, if only I had tresses!)

My hair is not particularly frizzy but can get weighed down easily. Usually I’m wary of using oils in it, though a nighttime leave-in oil treatment does wonders every few weeks.

“That said, one drop when my hair is damp or wet allows this product to work its magic too. It feeds my hair to protect it before blow drying, tames flyaways, and lends an overall healthy luster without being heavy.”

Regarding the ingredients – nothing skimpy here. Mongongo oil moisturizes and protects hair. Meadowfoam Seed oil adds shine and locks in the moisture. Organic Sweet Almond oil softens hair and repairs split ends. Organic Avocado oil nourishes the scalp and promotes hair growth, while Moroccan Rose oil soothes, hydrates and infuses hair with its delicate aroma.

These products definitely standout as exceptional for me.

Zweena Argan Rose Serum Review – The Green Product Junkie!

By | Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum, Press, Products, Reviews, The Zweena Story | No Comments

Like rose? Yeah, me too. Zweena Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum is hydrating and smells so great, I keep re-applying…ahhh! 

(by the beautiful Katie at The Green Product Junkie!)

You know you love a product when you keep re-applying it even when you don’t need to. I’ve tried one other rose oil-infused face oil, but I found the scent to be far too over-powering. I love the scent of rose, but in small, pretty doses. Zweena’s is just that.

First off, “Zweena” means beautiful in Morocco. Jayme Barrett, founder of Zweena has a cute story of how her company came to be.

While visiting a friend in Morocco, Jayme met her future husband on her third day in the country (sounds like a Jennifer Aniston or Julia Roberts movie, no?)  Not long after, her hubby-to-be gave her a bottle of argan oil as a gift and the rest is history.

So, as Jayme fell in love with both her man and the “liquid gold” oil, she soon made the decision to bring pure organic argan oil over to the United States.

 

I’ve tried many argan oil blends, but this is, by far, my favorite.  The subtle scent of rose, the way it blends and absorbs quickly into the skin and the hydration it gives is superior.  I also find that at $58, it’s a great price.

The Argan Rose Rejuvenating Serum is high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin-rich botanicals.  It’s also 100% organic and chemical-free sourced directly from a fair-trade cooperative in Morocco.

Just as an FYI:  Jayme had given me a 2-week supply of the oil and I have to say that it’s one of only a handful of products that I’ve received to test that I’ve completely used the entire product…that’s saying a lot!

Ingredients: Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil, ** Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed) Fruit Oil,* Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil,* Punica Granatum, (Pomegranate) Seed Oil,* Moroccan Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Oil

*USDA Certified Organic ,**ECOCERT Certified Organic

Facialist Alexandra Wagner Loves Zweena’s Pure Argan Oil!

By | Argan Oil, Products, Retail Stores, Reviews, Testimonials | No Comments

Alexandra Wagner is a veteran beauty expert, skin care specialist and licensed esthetician who brings years of experience in organic skin care from New York’s Madison Avenue to the beaches of Los Angeles. Alexandra was looking for an organic argan oil to use in her facial treatments and to sell in her spa. A client recommended Zweena Pure Argan Oil and Alexandra loved it! Here’s what she says:

“We love using Pure Organic Argan Oil in our facials. When your skin is in need of extra nourishment, Argan is a wonderful oil as it doesn’t clog the pores.”

“It’s emollient but lightweight so it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin. It can be massaged into dry skin to replenish and soften, or a drop or two can be used on more oily skin to help balance oil production and help diminish any surface dryness sometimes associated with acne prone skin. Zweena argan oil a wonderful source for this special oil.”
