To Use: Splash a few drops in a basin of warm water, using a fresh face cloth compress the face and décolletage to soften fine lines, sleep creases, loosen blackheads + clear congestion (for delicate, sensitive or inflamed skin use lukewarm water); apply your favourite vitamin oil, serum or nourishing balm & use a compress to infuse it deeply into your skin.
The art of compressing: Cleansing compress drops, also known as ‘comfort drops’, soothe the body-mind. Compressing works the lymph and the natural essential oils are antibacterial and anti inflammatory. If you have dry, sensitive or oily skin you will be inspired by the result of warm compresses… if you love the aromatherapy.. add them to your next hot bath.
Compressing the skin upon waking & sleeping is beneficial for all 3 doshas (skin types). All skin types benefit from compressing as an alternative cleansing agent.
Essential oils are inhaled directly & penetrate into the central mind channel where olfactory nerves generate nervous system responses to the rest of the body, the prana (a vata energetic) is stimulated & strengthened. Compressing is therefore a very powerful tool for those who are prone to operating from the sympathetic nervous system.
Owing to their high essential oil composition, cleansing compress drops are not for use directly on the skin – instead they are diluted in water. The essential oils are solubilised in *almond based glycerin (for more information on the constituents of Almond based solubiliser see below).
