Please take the time to view my unique 100% Natural Ingredients with no added extras (the natural colour and smell of Pure Beeswax speaks for itself).
I would also like to assure you that there is no essential oil of Arnica in any of my massage wax range and St. Johns wort is used only in my Sports & Remedial Massage Wax the rest are just beeswax & oils with a hint of organic lemon essential oil in a couple of them!
The carefully added 100% Pure Bees wax (ceraflava) filtered to remove impurities) makes this the ultimate medium for Sports & Remedial work and Reflexology when used sparingly. The wax warms and melts on application and allows for a much firmer grip during deep tissue and friction techniques. When applied more generously it provides a beautiful smooth flowing medium for Aromatherapy Practitioners and therapists taking the more gentle Holistic approach.
Beeswax has a number of benefits in treating skin problems like acne, dry skin and eczema. It provides a barrier locking in skin moisture protecting the skin from environmental damage and contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory plus anti-oxidant properties that are also beneficial to the skin.
The Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Dulcis) is Expeller pressed just days before delivery to ensure an optimum fresh vitamin and nutrient oil. This is one of the most popular carrier oils used in massage due to its slightly oily consistency allowing hands to glide easily over skin. Sweet Almond Oil is absorbed fairly quickly, but not so quickly that you need to keep reapplying, making it an excellent emollient for helping to moisturize and nourish the skin at the same time.
(Simmondsia Chinensis) is the liquid wax produced in the seed of the Jojoba plant. Jojoba Oil has a very long shelf life and does not become rancid or lose antioxidants even after long periods of storage.
My Jojoba Oil is cold compressed and refined as it is richest in its natural properties. Unlike many other oils it is very to similar to human sebum thus helping balance natural oil production in the skin. It contains myristic acid which also has anti-inflammatory actions and since this natural product has a similar composition to that of the skin's natural oils is quickly absorbed and an excellent emoliant for dry and mature skins as well as inflamed conditions, including acne.
Jojoba Oil contains vit A, B1, B2, B6, and vit E with the added bonus of having a natural SPF of 5
(Vitis Vinifera) is pressed from the seeds of various varieties of Vitis vinifera grapes, an abundant by-product of winemaking. Grapeseed Oil is highly moisturizing due to its high linoleic acid value (which is greater than most other carrier oils) and is the most staple oil used by many massage therapist. Grapeseed Oil has natural non-allergenic properties making it suitable on a wide variety of skin types including those with nut allergies. Grapeseed oil is a natural antioxidant and appears to assist with skin repair, as it has mildly astringent and antiseptic properties.
Grapeseed Oil naturally contains: Vit A, B, C & E.
(Citrus Limonum) assists the stimulation of white blood corpuscles aiding the bodies defense system in fighting infections.
It also helps clear congested skin and has antiseptic properties beneficial to minor skin lesions.
The rubefacient action of this oil is also said to further helps reduce cellulite, however as I am using just a hint of this essential oil in Annie' Bee Natural Massage Wax these benefits will be somewhat diluted.
My aim is to use the minimal amount thus providing a subtle refreshing citrus aroma only.
(Hypericum Oil) is prepared by infusing the flowers in a fixed oil, (Organic Sunflower Oil rich in Vitamin E) for approximately three weeks then pressed and strained. This oil has the ability to reduce skin tension aiding smooth and younger skin, contains anti inflammation properties and assists in the treatment of bruising and muscular pain making it ideal for the use in Annie's Bee natural Sports & Remedial Massage Wax. Hypericum Oil is rich in protein and naturally contains Vit A, B1, B2, B6 Vit D.
This Oil should be avoided during pregnancy. (Added to the Sports & Remedial Massage Wax only).
