Sacred Oils For Wellbeing
Oils have long played an important role in our global cultures, wellbeing and economy. In our modern-day we hail oils to be a crucial part of a healthy balanced diet and understand the incredible benefits of them for our skin and hair. Not to mention we rely on oil to make our world go round - quite literally!
If we look to our wise ancients and their relationship with oils, we see how they used them religiously throughout their daily lives. Not only would they consume oils for inner health and apply them topically for beauty, they revered them as sacred ointments and performed rituals and ceremonies with them for enhanced protection, connection and wellbeing.
One of the most common oils today, Olive oil, was used in ancient Mediterranean rituals for anointing royalty, warriors, and other important people. Their term "messiah", means "the anointed one," perhaps even referring to this Olive oil-based ritual.
Moringa Oil had many uses throughout ancient Egypt, including the extensive use in healing and medicine. An abundance of jars of this precious oil has been found in ancient Egyptians tombs, including the famous King Tut! Tombs were traditionally filled with items that were deemed valuable so the deceased could use them in the next life.
OILS FOR BEAUTY
We are forever inspired by ancient wisdom, and so this naturally influences the key ingredients we hand-select to curate our plant-based beauty range.
Deemed “The Miracle Tree” and “The Tree of Life”, Moringa Oil is an all-natural source of beauty greatness! It is suitable for all skin types and is known to reduce fine lines, improve the overall appearance of the skin, and soothe inflammation. This is due to its amazing long list of vitamins A, B, C & E, fatty acids and 1700 antioxidants making it an ultimate all-rounder superfood. It also strengthens hair by delivering these important minerals and vitamins to the hair follicles and nourishing from deep within.
With protection and nourishment of the delicate eye and lash area in mind, we infuse our hero products, the Goddess Mascara and Goddess Pencils, with certified organic Moringa oil.
Castor Oil is well known to be one of, if not, the best oil for natural hair growth support. Castor oil has been used medicinally for over 4,000 years for all kinds of ailments. The castor bean is native to Eastern Africa and made its way to Jamaica where it became famous for hair nourishment and growth. Sourced from the castor bean (Ricinus communis), castor oil is rich in ricinoleic acid - a type of fatty acid - and Vitamin E, when applied it’s reported to enhance the health of the hair follicles and, in turn, promote hair growth (as well as protect against hair loss).
It would be criminal not to include this holy-grail oil in our brow collection! Both our best-selling Brow Define and Dual Brow Perfect contain Castor oil, which means you can sit back and relax when using these beauties, your brows will be totally nourished and supported.
Sunflower Oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the stunning bright Sunflower. Used medicinally, Sunflower Oil protects against harmful bacteria and soothes inflamed and irritated skin. This magnificent oil retains moisture within your skin and reinforces your skin barrier resulting in maximum hydration! Alongside smoothing and softening skin, and being gentle enough to use on the most sensitive areas.
And this is why we formulate our most-loved Bio Lipstick collection with Sunflower Oil. We designed the Bio Lipstick in a range of essential everyday shades that feature key botanicals that truly nourish and smooth delicate skin. Hydration means firm and full lips, yes, please!

WHY ROSEHIP OIL
“We chose rosehip oil because of its botanical source, rosa canina, most closely resembles the skin’s internal function. Rosehip oil therefore naturally provides a whole range of benefits in one application that most other oils can’t. It is a potent combination of natural nutrients which include essential fatty acids linoleic acid Omega-3, linoleic acid Omega-6 and Omega-9, Vitamin E, Lycopene and Beta carotene. It contains the natural form of Vitamin A, tretinoin or all-trans-retinoic acid, and is ideal for sensitised skin. Rosehip oil is abundant in essential fatty acids and nutrients that promote healthy cellular turnover. While the natural activity hydrates and nourishes cells, rosehip oil is gentle enough that it won’t irritate already sensitised skin in a way that other oils can.” - Biologi Skincare
