Jasmine is known as the "Queen of the Night”, because it’s flowers nocturnally release a strong, sweet, yet pleasant fragrance.
Perhaps, while walking in your neighborhood in the evening, you may have been briefly transported to some magical place by a gentle waft of soothing, enchanting fragrance from somewhere nearby…

The jasmine flower fragrance is often associated with romance and love.
Jasmine essential oil provides health benefits, soothing nervous tension & anxiety.
Jasmine promotes the feeling of joy, peace, and self-confidence. It is known to help balance hormones and promotes healthy, radiant skin.
Jasmine works beautifully because it tones the skin and helps to enhance elasticity. It’s definitely something to include in your daily regimen. Besides improving elasticity, it brightens up the skin, fades scars and stretch marks. It can be used on both normal or dry skin.

Here is a powerful Anti-Aging Facial Oil Recipe
with Jasmin Oil:

Use sparingly in the mornings and evenings after washing, paying particular attention to the wrinkle-prone areas around the eyes and mouth. Be very gentle around the eyes. Use for two weeks, and take a week off, substituting with a plain oil such as argan or avocado.

Another Facial Oil option - Jasmin Oil Blend by Pixi.

What's In It?

Good to know:

It’s recommended to apply mornings & evenings daily. Just gently press onto cleansed, toned skin for a boost of hydration. Wait a few minutes for the oil to penetrate the skin, then apply your moisturizer. For that extra boost of hydration add 2-3 drops to your moisturizer before applying it.


We are so worried about wrinkles, but it seems that we give all the attention to our face. We exfoliate it, moisturize it, use masks on it once in while and even protect it with sunscreen. And how about our neck? Did you forget about it?
Our neck skin is every bit as delicate as our face skin, and it needs the same attention as our face does.
Following some type of skin regimen, you can minimize neck wrinkles that already exist and even prevent new ones from forming. Preventing neck wrinkles follows much the same routine as preventing face wrinkles.

Here are some suggestions for a skin regimen for face and neck:

Tips to follow:

  1. A daily routine is a must to fight neck wrinkles.
  2. Beauty also comes from within. Don’t forget to drink lots of water. Add a little bit of lemon juice in it for better skin hydration.
  3. Exfoliate your neck to reveal a brighter complexion. Skin will have a radiant glow from removal of dead skin cells and hydration support for healthy new skin.
  4. Due to neck skin being so thin, it is recommended to exfoliate it only once a week with a gentle cleanser.


Invest in your hair- it is the crown you never take off. It’s a great accessory so take care of it. Maybe you are still using conventional haircare products or maybe you are exploring more natural options.
Whatever the case may be, perhaps essential hair oils can be part of your new or existing routine.
If that is the case here’re just a few essential hair oil options to explore:

  • Ylang Ylang - great essential hair oil that stimulates hair growth
  • Lavender Oil - increases the number of follicles for thicker hair
  • Rosemary Oil - works well for dandruff & stimulates hair follicles
  • Juniper Oil - is helpful for overly-oily hair and helps strengthen brittle strands

How to apply Essential Oils for Hair

  • Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner and lather as usual
  • Add some essential oils diluted in aloe vera to a spray bottle and liberally mist your hair.
    You don’t need to rinse it. It conditions and helps to restore dry hair.

John Masters Organics has included in his Hair Care line a wonderful Lavender Rosemary Shampoo for Normal Hair that was created to gently cleanse snd moisturize, and it is pH balanced to preserve the natural oils in your scalp.

Healthy Hair Matters!

The most important thing for hair health above all, is a combination of foods in a balanced diet.
-To keep the strength of your hair - eat peanut butter and greek yogurt, both high in protein and a great source of elasticity.
-To keep hair smooth - lots of tofu, beans, oysters, crabmeat and lean meats.
-To protect hair from breakage - oranges, kiwi, broccoli, red peppers and Brussels sprouts.
-To prevent dry scalp add to your diet - salmon, trout, walnuts and flaxseeds- they are packed with omega-3 fatty acids.


Hands are the most quickly aging part of a woman’s body. Many factors such as solar radiation, excessive dry indoor air, aggressive washing agents, sanitizers, etc. are leading to unfortunate aging consequences.

To maintain the hand skin healthy and looking good, you should be using a good quality moisturizer on them. Apply on hands frequently to restore, moisturize, and protect- especially after washing them.

Pamper your hands with this Organic Hand Cream by ERBAVIVA. It’s a light, yet powerful formula to keep hands soft and rejuvenated. It’s an essential remedy for dull, dry skin, and it’s ideal for softening the cuticles, arms and elbows.

The Hero ingredients and Benefits:

  • Organic Rosemary Extract - antioxidant benefits
  • Organic Shea Butter - nurturing and hydration
  • Organic Aloe Juice - moisturizes and hydrates
  • Organic Cocoa Butter - minimizes the appearance of scars and stretch marks

Suggested Tips:

- Massage your hands at night at least for five minutes to allow the cream ingredients to soak in.
- Always protect your hands from sun radiation. There are so many good sunscreens out there to choose from, but my favorite is from Neutrogena.
- Eating right plays a big role. Indulge in proteins(eggs, almonds, chicken breast, oats, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, milk, broccoli, tuna, quinoa, lentils, fish, shrimp, Brussels sprouts, peanuts),
and Vitamin B & E supplements.


First of all, the best way to prevent future skin issues is to incorporate a skin regimen while you are still young.
That being said, here are some suggestions for materials that can help in creating a skin care routine for women of all ages.

Over time skin loses its tension and starts to sag. forming wrinkles and a pasty appearance. In my opinion, there is one essential oil for skin elasticity:

Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) can help with a range of skin issues from rejuvenating dry mature skin to resolving painful rashes and topical skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Its restores elasticity. great for toning the skin and pulling the fibers tight. Frankincense also softens grouchy expressions!

Another facial oil option to use in a blend or on its own is
Apricot Kernel (Prunus armeniaca) . It’s an emollient that is anti-aging and helps improve elasticity to mature skin. It is high in Vitamin E & Omegas 6 and 9.

You can also make your own moisturizing facial cream!
Here is the recipe:

One last tip…

Worrying about your skin is a must, but beauty comes from within also. Eat organic fruits and vegetables, higher in vitamins and minerals, that are good for the skin. Just as the best natural oils come from remote areas away from pollution, our food deserves the same consideration.
The best way to ensure you are getting enough nutrients is to eat a varied diet with good sources of zinc, such as meat, seafood, nuts, seeds, legumes and dairy. Zinc not only enhances the skin but also makes your hair thicker and shinier too.
