AJ Bodycare Range of Organic Essential oils for the Face.

Frankincense Lotion

Frankincense Lotion

Essential oils are mostly extracted from the plant  harvest by using a steam distillation process, in which steam is circulated under pressure through the plant material and the aromatic compounds are separated with the steam and as the mixture cools, the water and oils naturally separate and the oils are then collected in their Purest form.

To ensure that the harvest is the very best we must first start with the right plant material and harvest it at the perfect moment. Too little heat and too little pressure will not release the valuable oil, while too much heat can change the composition and the potency of the oil. If the oil is damaged in any way many companies replace the damaged compounds with a man-made synthetic, chemical version thus allowing for a cheaper alternative for bodycare use. Certified Organic Essential oils means the oils have been independently tested to ensure the oil extract elements do not have contaminates and the right amount of compounds is found in each stream.

To ensure your skin receives the very best that can be offered look for our new Face Lotions using Organic Essential Oils in the Bodycare page, your skin will thank you for it.

AJ Bodycare Face and Body lotions.

Essential oils are so concentrated that they need to be diluted for some applications. To achieve this we mix them in a Base carrier oil. Using correct base carrier oils also help essential oils to penetrate the skin. Here at Aj’s we use a combination of 5 different carrier oils in our body creams to help your skin to look and feel the best.
