Fennel Seed Oil

Fennel stimulates the production of oestrogen by the adrenal glands after the ovaries have stopped functioning. It is a hormone balancer, and has been used for thousands of years for its effects on the female reproductive system. A new study confirms that it is also effective in the management of postmenopause symptoms such as hot flashes, sleeplessness, vaginal dryness, and anxiety. Fennel also reduces depression and anxiety. It relieves vasomotor symptoms, vaginal itching, dryness, dyspareunia, sexual function, sexual satisfaction, and sleep distribution.

Camphor Oil has cooling properties that can help to relieve hot flushes and night sweats. It is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, improves blood circulation and can be used topically to reduce pain and relieve skin irritation.

Flax Seed Oil

Flax seed oil acts like a skin conditioner, it improves the smoothness of skin and reduces irritation. The omega-3 fatty acids found in flaxseed oil help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by repairing skin cells and increase the speed of wound healing. It is helpful in treating conditions such as rosacea, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Hempseed Oil

Hempseed oil is perfect for most skin types as it moisturizes without clogging pores. One of the omega-6 fatty acids in hemp oil is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation. This can help to calm inflammation and irritation in the skin. It can also reduce symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and  menopause.

Soybean Oil

Soybean oil contains soy phytosterols, which have shown a positive effect on skin barrier recovery. It has also shown antioxidative activityOne study showed that it enhances the skin’s natural barrier to help retain moisture. Another study found that topically applying soybean oil helped protect against skin inflammation caused by ultraviolet radiation. Soybean oil is also rich in vitamin E, an anti-inflammatory nutrient that can support skin health through free-radical scavenging and protect against skin damage.
