There is no denying that we love oils at Mapleblume. In fact, we use them for everything! We use oil for removing makeup, for cleansing, we use oils for our face, hair, under eyes, body, you name it!
We love them so much because you can have such concentrated goodness in a bottle as opposed to a product that has fillers with no major health benefit. Also, often times in creams and lotions, if they aren’t formulated in the best possible way, they contain synthetic preservatives, chemicals, fragrances and many other ingredients which can actually have harmful effects on your body.
One of the things I love about using oils is that they feel so luxurious and can have the most divine natural scents.
A common misconception about face oils, is that you shouldn’t use them if you have oily skin (excessive sebum production). This couldn’t be further from the truth. I actually have quite oily skin, but using a facial oil like BALANCE Face Oil from Linné Botanicals or the Balance Facial Serum from Laurel Whole Plant Organics works incredibly well on my skin. When you nourish your skin with high quality natural products, instead of stripping it with harsh cleansers and not applying the appropriate amount of moisture afterwards, you will actually increase your sebum production…it can be a vicious cycle!
Here are some of the companies who sell incredible oil products that we highly recommend:

Some of you may remember an old TV commercial (though I cannot recall what they were advertising), the slogan has stuck with me.
“When you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you look great!”
These are words that make a lot of sense and that we can live by. Yet I have now found it rings truer than ever before when it comes to the clean and natural beauty products that I use on my body.
