“Bien dans sa peau” 

Witch Hazel

Hamamelis is extensively used throughout the world for minor skin ailments, the name remains more or less the same, the properties too. Hamamelis is an astringent : it tones and firms the skin by constricting the pores, thus reducing irritations.

Why is Hamamelis nicknamed Witch Hazel in English out of all names ? Well, etymology informs us : the witch word comes from an old English name : Wice, that meant bendable or pliable. The witch in the witch hazel is not a witch after all !

Witch hazel is combined with ylang ylang and lavender essentiel oils in Witch Hunt.

Fear not ! Buy the Witch hunt soap and enjoy this delicate scent !

Avocado oil

Avocado Oil is the oil of choice for mature skin. This thick oil helps regenerate skin, thus it helps combat wrinkles. There is chlorophylle in avocado oil, this is why it has this deep green colour. Oils in soap mainly work as moisturizers, preventing the skin to become too dry when in contact with hot water.
Pure cold pressed Avocado oil is said to reduce :
psoriasis
acne,
dandruff
Why ? The oil still retains vitamins, is slightly anti inflammatory and antioxydant.
You can use it as a mask for a few minutes and rince it of with warm water : verify for yourself the effect of this great oil.
What does it taste like ? Avocado oil has a slightly nutty flavour, it could become a great staple for your favourite salads.
