Twilight Tourmaline Detox Oil was developed for use on myself and a few friends and clients who used the oil for various reasons. It is a ready-to-use product that requires no mixing or blending. However the methods of use which are common to me are unique to many of you who are not working in the Spa/Salon industry. I would like to take this space to give you a few salon secrets and ways to use our Detox oil.
Jojoba & Liquid Coconut Oil
We have carefully blended the carrier oils of jojoba & a liquid form of coconut together to create a silky feeling base that does not just sit on top of your skin. It absorbs quickly depending on the natural moisture factor of your own skin.
Jojoba is used in fine spa/salons for its anti-inflammatory effects. It is used in facial massages alone or with added essential oils. It is a beautiful golden color when pressed and is grown in the USA. It has no odor and is said to have a natural SPF of about 4.
Liquid Coconut softens and helps improve the elasticity of the skin by protecting against free radical damage that causes aging. It has been used to boost the metabolism, help heal wounds and acne scars. For more information on the many uses of coconut oil I suggest reading Coconut for Health and Beauty by Cynthia Holzapfel and Laura Holzapfel.
Pink Tourmaline Vintage Uses
Pink tourmaline was thought to have healing properties and was used to increase circulation and help reduce swelling in the joints as well as detoxify the body. It was thought that when the stone was set upon the body it would help alleviate back pain. When added to a solution it is supposed to increase the therapeutic action of that liquid, therefore, staying true to ancient techniques we have added this precious stone to our Detoxifying formula as an added treat.
Save your Tourmaline crystal in a muslin bag and use it to activate your bath water with energy. Crystals are conductors of energy and have been used throughout history in healing and therapeutic baths. just the drop the muslin bag filled with your tourmaline into your bathwater and either add 1/8 tsp of Detox oil or a couple of drops of essential oil diluted in a teaspoon of Twilight Fragrance Free Gel Wash .
The synergistic blend of essential oils added to the coconut/jojoba base have been chosen for their uses throughout history. Oils such as Rosemary and Cypress have been used for their stimulating properties.
