NECTAR [Skin & Hair Serum]
Our NECTAR serum is a powerhouse of nutrition. Argan oil is rich in antioxidants, and helps prevent the causes of skin aging, while also healing the skin and reducing redness. Raspberry seed oil has been shown to be UV-A and UV-B protective, making it a great SPF addition to your moisturizing routine.
15 ml | .5 oz OR .625 dram | .05 oz
To allow for optimal absorption into the skin, use NECTAR in combination with our other alchemy products, as part of your daily skincare routine.
NECTAR is also great in the hair. To use as a scalp treatment, part your hair in sections, apply a few drops along the hair line, and work into the scalp before moving onto the next section and repeating. Once completed, wrap a warm towel over your head and allow the oil to soak in. Wait at least one hour before rinsing or shampooing clean. You can also cover your hair and sleep in it overnight. Be sure to use dark towels as Seakbucktorn can stain.
To quickly rejuvenate very dry or damaged hair, or to use as a styling finish, apply to the palm of your hand and work into the hair follicles from root to tip.
When I know I’m going to be out in the sun, I apply 3-4 drops of NECTAR with HYDRATE spray on my face. HYDRATE helps to spread the serum evenly across the face, and to provide an extra level of hydration. The Carrot Seed Oil in NECTAR helps rebuild and rejuvenate tired and sun-exposed skin cells. A lot of the oils in this blend have been shown to act as a natural SPF and can stop free radical damage.
Use NECTAR as a hydrating, aromatherapy bath oil. Drop into running bath oil as desired.
I feel it’s best to use a cream cleanser, which will penetrate deeper. The fat molecules in straight oil are too large to penetrate into the skin, but they do form a protective layer. However, if you have highly oily skin with active oil production, this oil cleansing protocol will help to balance the production overload. First add a few drops of NECTAR combined with a spray or two of HYDRATE with you LUSTER, in the palm of your hand and warm between your palms to combine. Apply to the face, massaging in round, circular movements with your fingertips, making sure you get down onto your neck and décolleté to encourage lymphatic drainage, and penetrate deeper into the skin. Rinse well and then apply HYDRATE mist as your moisturizer.
If you have super dry skin and are worried about stripping during exfoliation, you can still exfoliate at least once a week by mixing hydration into your scrub. Add 3-4 drops of the NECTAR serum to your LUSTER cleanser. This will offer oil hydration and nutritional support during your exfoliation. Because EAA skincare is balancing, you should see changes, healing and balancing in your skin with continued use. As you see changes, adjust accordingly.
MOISTURIZE For more potent, hydrating nutrition, and to create a protective barrier on the skin, add 2 to 3 drops of NECTAR as desired. Again, mix it in the palm of your hand to combine, and then press into the areas where wrinkles are forming, like the corners of your eyes and around your mouth.
