So in love my my new cherry red ballerinas and I feel like I need to travel somewhere warm asap so I can wear them with a striped cotton dress, sunnies and a straw bag in my hand. For now I’ll pair them with a cozy sweater and a pair of blue jeans.
What better than a warm shower on a cold day, followed by a great smelling oil slathered on from top to toe? Zenz Organic oil in Deep Wood smells warm and cosy of wood and herbs and works for both skin and hair. 100 % natural and vegan ingredients like cold-pressed avocado oil and apricot kernel oil, that have soothing properties and are rich in vitamins and minerals. The oil strengthens hair, scalp and hair follicles plus fortifies the strands of hair and prevent it from splitting or breaking. It’s suitable for stress related hair loss and sensitive scalp and dandruff, eczema and itching. Distribute the oil in tool dry hair and massage in. Wash your hair twice – the first time put the shampoo in without adding water first to get the oil out and then follow with a normal wash. You can treat your split end to a bit of oil before styling on days you don’t have time for a full treatment. The oil works wonders for your skin as well – use as a bath oil or add a tablespoon or two in a footbath or simply massage the oil in on damp skin after a shower. For face care add a few drops to your night cream of give yourself a face massage using the oil – it relaxes and tightens skin. The fragrance of the Deep Wood Organic Oil is meditative, calming and relaxing and contains patchouli, cedar wood, bergamot, myrrh, rose, geranium and lavender. I’ve used up this oil so my December will be filled with the soothing scent of Deep Wood.
