I am deeply in touch with nature on our farm and have carefully chosen these unique blends of ingredients to create “Meadows” Range.
Apricot Kernel helps skin maintain moisture balance. It is a light oil good for oily complexions. It’s full of Vitamin A and E which soothes the skin and slows signs of aging.
Argan oil is high in Vitamin E. It moisturises, hydrates and gives the skin a natural boost. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy and works as an anti-oxidant to give a youthful glow and decrease the visibility of wrinkles. Restores elasticity and leaves skin plumper and softer.
Macadamia oil is rich in essential fatty acids and oleic acid which are perfect for mature or dry skin. It helps the skin retain moisture. Is great for skin recovery and is anti-inflammatory.
Grapeseed is the oil that’s extracted from grape seeds. It’s non-comedogenic which means it doesn’t clog pores. It is known to treat acne, tighten skin, helps diminish dark circles around the eyes, moisturize, reduce scars, restore collagen and fight aging.
Castor oil is absorbed very slowly by the skin and attracts dirt to itself, it makes it perfect as a cleanser. In my Cleansing Face Oil it draws dirt and grime from your face and then you just wash it off. But not only is it good for cleansing and detoxifying the skin it also exerts an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
My favourite oil. Jojoba oil is high in Vitamin E. It unclogs pores, is anti-inflammatory and reduces dryness and irritation. A brilliant all-rounder oil that I use for everything.
Rosehip oil, the miracle oil! It is a natural source of essential fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9 that helps repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue. It is a great source of Vitamin C which is great for anti-aging. Is an antioxidant which helps improve the appearance of pigmentation and restore skins tone.
Coconut oil is packed with vitamin E, proteins, lauric, capric and caprylic acids (known for their antifungal, antibacterial properties) works as a brilliant moisturiser.
Shea butter is very nourishing and moisturising. Is anti-inflammatory and helps reduce blemishes and wrinkles. Is great for eczema, dermatitis and dry skin.
Cocoa butter is a natural moisturiser, full of fatty acids and rich in antioxidants. Gives a layer of protection from skin stresses and free radicals in our environment. Is very hydrating and helps slow the process of aging.
My favourite of all the essential oils. I wouldn’t dream of a skincare routine without rose. Its scent also has won me over. Rose is great for dry skin, mature skin, wrinkles and broken capillaries. It improves poor circulation, is anti-inflammatory, cooling, soothing and also helps relieve stress.
Frankincense comes from the bark of the Boswellia genustrees, particularly Boswellia sacra and Boswellia carteri. The milky white sap is extracted from the tree bark, allowed to harden into a gum resin for several days, and then scraped off in tear-shaped droplets. It is a powerful astringent. Helps protect skin cells. Reduces acne blemishes, scars and appearance of large pores. Prevents wrinkles and help lift and tighten skin.
Palma Rosa is a tropical grass native to India. It helps regulate skin moisture and oil production. Is great for dry skin, eczema and dermatitis.
The health benefits of Lime can be attributed to its properties as an antiseptic, antiviral, astringent, disinfectant. I use it in my Lip Balm as it’s great for combating cold sores.
The essential oil of lime is extracted by cold compression of fresh lime peels or by steam distillation of its dried peels.
I use Lemon Oil in my Cleansing Face Oil as it improves the lustre of dull skin. It’s astringent and detoxifying properties help rejuvenate sagging and tired skin.
Peppermint oil helps with acne as it helps control secretion of excess oil and prevents the clogging of pores. It contains menthol that has a cooling effect and works to brighten up dull skin.
Some of the reasons I use Lavender Oil. Reduces anxiety and emotional stress. Improves sleep. Restores skin complexion and reduces acne. Slows aging with powerful antioxidants. Improves eczema and psoriasis. The list is endless………
Tea Tree oil also known as melaleuca oil, is a yellowish coloured essential oil that is made from the leaves of the plant Melaleuca alternifolia (native to Australia).
I use Tea Tree oil in my Uplifting Foot Balm for its antibacterial disinfectant properties which helps reduce Athletes foot and other feet fungi.
The smell of this oil is so refreshing and helps lifts my mood. I use this oil in my hand balm for its anti-inflammatory properties and is great for nourishing dry skin.
I use Chamomile in my “Sweet Dream Spritz” for its calming properties to help people that have trouble with sleep. It can help reduce blood pressure and depression.
Jasmine oil is very nourishing and soothing for skin. Helps increase skin elasticity and balance moisture. Also helps heal blemishes and scars. Helps that is smells divine…………….
The essential oil is extracted from the ripened and dried fruits of the Litsea Cubeba tree.
Also known as ‘Mountain Pepper’ or ‘Chinese Pepper’, the plant is native to south China, Indonesia, Java, Sumatra and other regions of Southeast Asia.
It has strong antiseptic properties that are particularly useful for treating oily skin, blemishes and acne. Its citrusy smell is also great as a mood lifter.
Himalayan pink salt is great for relaxing cramped muscles. The magnesium and some other trace minerals found in this salt absorbs through the skin to help heal damaged muscle and other soft tissues. It works great as a skin exfoliate and I use it in my “Awaken Body Scrub”
Dead Sea salt
Dead Sea salt has been used for centuries to promote health and wellness, treat skin disorders, detoxify the body and prevent illness. Dead Sea salt differs from regular sea salt in that it has a much lower sodium content, balanced by minerals that feed and nourish the skin and body. A Dead Sea salt scrub is one of many ways to receive the therapeutic and beautifying benefits of this mineral-rich substance.
Beeswax carries antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that are essential in fighting chapped skin and bacterial infections that tend to affect us most in the dry, winter months. It forms a protective wall by sealing in moisture in our skin without smothering and clogging up the pores. I use local Beeswax in my “Nourishing Lip Balm”
Orange Blossom Water
One of the reasons orange blossom water is so widely used in aromatherapy is the soothing effect it has on the nerves. It helps relieve stress and anxiety. Its calming effect is great for people who suffer from insomnia. I use it in my “Sweet Dream Spritz” to aid better sleep. It can also be used as a facial toner.
Poppy seeds are a good source of unsaturated fatty acids as well as minerals like calcium, zinc and magnesium. At Meadows I use them in my “Awaken Body Scrub”.
Epsom salts absorbed through the skin also work to relieve muscle tension, pain, and inflammation in joints. Submerge yourself in a warm Epsom salt bath to alleviate tension headaches or soothe abdominal cramps. Tired and sore feet will also benefit from the therapeutic warmth of an Epsom salt soak which I use in my “Foot Detox Melts”
Vitamin E oil treats wrinkles and brown spots by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration. It works to block free radicals from the body, which play a large part in the aging process. If we can fight off free radicals, then we can reduce wrinkles and keep the skin youthful-looking. I use Vitamin E in all Meadows Products.
