Why do you even need a base cream in the first place? Well, it's common knowledge that oil and water simply don't mix. A base cream will combine water's hydrating effects with the emollient qualities of oils, resulting in an extremely versatile base cream that is both hydrating and nourishing.

This cream is lovely to use on its own but the magic really happens when you customise it with pure essential oils suitable for your skin type! We recommend up to a 10% dilution ratio when whipping up your DIY aromatherapy skin care products, massage blends, beauty treatments, and more.

Wonderfully hydrating, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic, you'll be glad to know that this cream is derived entirely from natural plant materials without any animal or petrochemical products used. It's sulfate and PEG-free, environmentally-friendly, and was not tested on animals! It's a guilt-free indulgence for a smoother and more vibrant complexion!

Safety Cautions

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:

  • Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.

  • Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.

  • Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
