Oil Nouveau is our "crowing jewel." becoming more and more dry. Until now, Crème Nouveau has been enough, but now I need more. At first I thought about creating a new Crème, but then I realized I could just bump up the power of Crème Nouveau with a unique blend of botanical oils and essential oils. I chose all of the oils in Oil Nouveau based on their special powers.
I wanted Oil Nouveau to compliment the luxury of Creme Nouveau, and I could not be more excited about this blend of oils! I am absolutely in love with the scent and benefits of organic Rose Geranium and Bergamot Essential Oils imported from England. I also am so excited about the power-packed Black Raspberry Seed oil, Cranberry Seed oil, Meadowfoam Seed oil, Pomegranate Seed oil, and Virgin Plum Kernel oil. But, I must share that I literally squealed with happiness when I first saw the Buritti Fruit Oil; it is like the color of Rubies and smells so good! In fact, the natural aroma of all of these oils is so delicious that I had to let them shine through and not be overpowered by the Essential Oils.
Cecelia's Gift Guide.
Ingredients: Meadowfoam Seed oil, Buriti Fruit oil, Black Raspberry Seed oil, Virgin Pomegranate Seed oil, Virgin Plum Kernel oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Organic Rose Geranium Essential oil, and Organic Bergamot (FCF) Essential Oil (furanocoumarin free).
Directions: Oil Nouveau can be used by itself or mixed with Crème Nouveau, Crème Phylisse, or Crème Florette – whichever is your favorite. In the morning, right after I wash my face, I spritz with Flower Water, then I place a pearI sized scoop of Crème Nouveau on my palm and then add about 2-10 drops of Oil Nouveau. Then I rub my palms together to mix it all up, and then press my hands to my face, eye area, lips, neck, and décolleté, and then I rub it in. I wait for it to absorb while I have a cup of tea or two while it absorbs. Right before I apply my makeup, I wipe my face with a dry cotton pad to pick up any leftover product and give myself a gentle exfoliation treatment. Then, I put on my makeup! In the evening, I take off my makeup with Cleansing Oil, wash with Cleansing Milk or Rosette Bar Soap, spritz with Flower Water and apply Oil and Creme Nouveau the same way as in the morning For External Use Only. Do Not Ingest. Does Not Contain SPF.
