Vanilla: is the second more expensive spice/herb in the world after saffron. This is due to the painstaking process that takes the vanilla bean from an orchid that blooms just one day each year, to hand pollination, on to harvesting at just the right moment, and finally the elaborate process which insures maximum fragrance and taste. The end result is a plant that is highly antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti carcinogenic, antidepressant and mood lifting, anti-cancer, an aphrodisiac and libido enhancer, and nerve relaxant, To the skin it is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antibacterial and if high in B vitamins, especially niacin, which is essential for healthy skin. 

Jojoba: is actually a liquid plant wax, not an oil as it is often called. This cold pressed liquid wax has amazing absorption properties making it highly effective at allowing the skin to also absorb the healing properties of other ingredients in which it is mixed with... in this case, sandalwood and vanilla.  

Avocado: is high in vitamins A and E, working synergistically to improve the skin's tone and texture, which then also promotes natural collagen production. This oil is cold pressed from avocado flesh, which is an emollient and a highly penetrating oil.

Peppermint: is a cool, refreshing flavor and aroma, commonly used in herbal teas, toothpastes, desserts, chewing gum, and cocktails. Peppermint helps to kill those germs that may lead to halitosis, leaving one's breath fresh and clean. It is said to invigorate and increase one's productivity - some companies in Japan are known to pump peppermint aroma through the AC system to give their worker's a more competitive edge. According to Greek mythology, Menthe was punished by being turned into a peppermint plant when Proserpine went into a  jealous rage, and found out that Pluto was in love with her. Even earlier than this, peppermint was used by the Assyrians as an offering to the fire god.

Beeswax: from local Pacific Northwest bees is pure, filtered and moisturizing for all skin types, including those with skin sensitivities.

Vitamin E: this oil is vacuum distilled from non-GMO vegetable fats. It's high concentration of antioxidants makes it great for repairing the skin, as well as to maximize any oil-based products' freshness in which it is added.
