Tweaking the Recipe for Your Skin
Have very dry skin, or skin that needs extra nourishment? Try adding Tamanu or Seabuckthorn oil.
Have aging or mature skin? Consider adding rosehip seed oil, carrot seed oil and Avocado oil.
Have inflamed skin, or need an instant mood lift? Try adding Roman Chamomile Essential oil.
Have acne prone skin? Consider adding turmeric or thyme oil.
For overall skin nourishment and care, you can also add neem oil. However, if you want to add neem oil, many consider the stench overwhelming. It’s a good idea to do this – add the healing Argan oil to your palm and add two drops of neem oil. Use your fingers to mix and apply evenly. If you love it, then you can add the oil to the main bottle. On the other hand, you can just add neem oil just before applying, whenever you need it.
