Why Vanilla Essential Oil is brilliant for your skin? 💆🏻♀️
When writing my recipe for my Scrumptious Honey and Coffee Scrub for my new Products from Holly & Honey I was looking into some essential oils and I discovered Vanilla 🍦🍦🍦
Shine on that Skin. Vanilla is a good source of B-vitamins like niacin, thiamin, Vitamin B6 and pantothenic acid which play a pivotal role in the care of healthy skin. The antioxidant properties of vanilla essential oil will protect your skin from damage caused by pollutants and toxins.
Vanilla is also an anti depressant so obviously when you’re in the shower having a good scrub then this ingredient will uplift you and get you started for your day!
Vanillin hydroxybenzaldehyde, a component of vanilla essential oil, is an effective antidepressant and mood lifter. You start feeling satisfied and get into a much better mood. This is one of the biggest advantages of vanilla’s powerful aroma. It is far more effective if it comes from real vanilla, but synthetic vanilla or artificially synthesized vanillin hydroxybenzaldehyde works as well.
So there you have it - that’s why I chose this ingredient for my new scrub - this is the first of a long list of Homemade Natural Beauty Products so keep your eyes peeled!
Love Holly 💜
