Perfume fragrances added to most body products are made to mimic the scent of these oils.  Unfortunately, they do not possess the other important and positive qualities that the valuable constituants in essential oils offer us.  Essentail oil aromas have been widely used for centuries to help in reducing the impact of emotional and physical stress.  This is a list of the most important medicinal properties that are found most often in essential oils.

Mature Skin:

Mature skin tends to have: expression lines around the mouth, slackness around the eyes, a dull complexion with loss of skin elasticity and natural moisture. This skin type also may display a fine network of veins. Most skin as it becomes older looses its natural oils and becomes drier. Cellular regeneration is the key to a youthful skin. The essential oils used in these Seasons Cream blends are cytophylactic meaning that they stimulate the generation of new cells. This helps to preserve the health and beauty of skin. Essential oils are also ideally suited for skin care as their small molecular size allows them to penetrate and be readily absorbed through the skin.
