    Black Tie Fragrance Oil

    May I sing a ZZ Top song for you? Maybe you could sing along with me since we only need the chorus line. This fragrance will definitely zap you back to MTV and the amazing videos of the early music video years.

    Sharp Dressed Man Chorus:
    They come runnin' just as fast as they can
    'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

    I know you'll be looking for the Black Tie because this scent is a blend of bay, rum, lime, mahogany, amber, and vanilla. A kiss of bergamot makes this scent irresistible! Clean from the shower and sharply groomed, any man who smells like this will have every girl crazy! Just try it, you know you want to. We won't tell your secret.

    Every girl goes crazy for a sharp dressed man. We know, and we concur!

    Black Tie Fragrance Oil is compatible with our cyclomethicone!

    Marula Oil, Virgin

    INCI = Sclerocarya Bierra (Marula) Seed Oil

    Saponification Value: 192 mg KOH / g of Fat

    Our cold-pressed Virgin Marula Oil is one of the most luxurious treats for the skin that I have ever used. The Marula tree is native to southern Africa and is considered to be a valuable tree for socioeconomic reasons. The fruits are food for the local people, and the seed kernels are pressed to extract the oil, which brings money to the community. When you purchase Marula Oil from us, you will help us support the women who harvest and process the sustainably grown fruit.

    Marula Oil has over 60% naturally occurring oleic (omega-9) fatty acids, and that's a good thing! Oleic fatty acids are perfect for dry or aging skin because it can easily penetrate the skin to help soothe skin and prevent moisture loss. We tried applying Marula Oil directly to the skin on the face as a treatment oil, and it was a hit with the variety of skin types found on our staff! Marula has been reported to help reduce inflammation due to the readily available polyphenols. Marula Oil has twice the amount of tocopherols as Argan Oil, which are the backbone of anti-aging products.

    We think you will love Marula Oil for the satin-like matte finish, quick skin absorption, and luxurious emollient feel.

    Fine Mist Sprayer Bottle Set

    Our newest spray bottle is rather a technical genius! You know the trigger finger fatigue after a day of cleaning or other spray application. Fatigue no more! This bottle has an internal liner which allows the contents to become pressurized with a few quick succession pumps. The bottle will then spray for several seconds without another squeeze.

    Using this aerosol-like bottle is simple; fill the bottle with water or other desired product, LABEL, press cap down on to bottle and give a slight twist. The sprayer is now engaged on the bottle, and spraying can commence. I've been using a water-filled bottle to mist my feet and neck during this warm summer. I have used a bottle to mist my watercolor paints so I can enjoy a session of painting. I have even filled the sprayer with a light solid-surface cleaner (a bit of water and vinegar). The bottles and sprayers are white, so labeling is an absolute must.

    Bottles are sold as singles, and as a 16-pack (which fits nicely in a box). I expect these bottles to be used with hydrosols, flower waters, dilute vinegar cleaners, and even plain water. I have enjoyed this sprayer at the dryer as I remove wrinkles with a few sprays and a quick shake. I know you will be so tickled to use this spray bottle for your fine-mist applications.

    This bottle holds 10.75 ounces of water.

    Spray on!

    Lemon Balm Leaf Extract

    INCI: Triglycerides of Caprylic/Capric Acid (and) Melissa Officinalis (Lemon Balm) Leaf Extract

    Oh, Melissa, how I love thee! Thy leaves are soft, and nectar like honey! Thou keeps my bees so happy, my skin like dew, and my poem funny!

    Ever wonder why folks wax poetic for Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)? I haven't a clue! I know that my excitement level goes way up when we talk about adding this herb to my garden. Lemon balm has a long history, over 2,000 years, of being used to treat many ailments. Modern research is slow-moving and has validated some of the claims made by ancient peoples, and it has also proven some claims ineffective. The name Melissa is a reference to honey bees (Apis mellifera) and how much the bees love this plant. Be careful that you don't confuse Melissa with Monarda (bee balm)!

    The herb leaves were used during the Middle Ages in public bathhouses to promote healthy, vibrant skin. I'm not sure that I would go to a public bathhouse, my imagination has probably carried me away, but I would add lemon balm to my own tub! We think this extract is a real treat in skin and hair care. We are willing to bet that you will notice skin improvement when you add this extract to your body care products. The most thrilling part of using Lemon Balm Extract will be your impromptu poetry!

    The extract has no odor and will not compete with your choice of scenting oils.

    Usage rates for this oil soluble extract are generally 0.1 to 10%. We use up to 1% in the liquid bases like shampoo and conditioner, and 2 to 4 % in massage oils. Under extreme conditions we can see the usage as high as 10%, but only for indulgent personal care.

    This item counts in the 10% discount applied to 16 fl oz bottles of Essential Oils, Flavor Oils, Fragrance Oils when purchased in quantities of 10 or more, mix or match!
