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!

No one wants to use something that's "natural," but that is ineffective and might leave you feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable.

If you're wanting to "make the switch" there are a few things you need to know:

1. You will literally need to detox your armpits. After having used conventional deodorants/antiperspirants, your underarms are likely on hyperdrive and actually produce more bacteria than what is normal.
