This sumptuous serum stars Sandalwood Nut Oil center stage, with a supporting cast of myrrh, frankincense, thyme linalool, yarrow, lemon, and organic sandalwood oils offering an endless blend of healing power.
Sandalwood Nut Oil contains a variety of beneficial fatty acids, most of which are common to a range of different nut oils. However, sandalwood nut oil contains a rare, precious fatty acid that is difficult to find anywhere else in Mother Nature: a joyful little gem known as Ximenynic acid. This nourishing lipid makes up just 35% of all the fatty acids found in sandalwood nut oil, yet offers more benefits than all of the other acids combined.
In order to reduce inflammation in the body, it is necessary to prevent certain enzymes from interacting with certain acids. This is accomplished by irreversibly binding these enzymes, thus preventing them from engaging in the processes that cause inflammation. While most fatty acids offer double-binding properties, assuring a moderate amount of anti-inflammatory power, Ximenynic acid offers triple-binding power, significantly increasing this oil’s ability to fight inflammation.
What’s more, Sandalwood Nut Oil has been used for thousands of years to treat a host of other skin and body ailments, including those caused by inflammation, environmental toxins, and innate imbalances. Peoples indigenous to Australia swallowed whole sandalwood nuts to lubricate their joints and stave off arthritis. They also crushed raw sandalwood nuts and rubbed the oil on their skin to treat bruises, cellulite, sores, varicose veins, and oily skin.
When combined with organic oils like sandalwood, frankincense, myrrh, thyme linalool, yarrow, and lemon, sandalwood nut oil has the support it needs to infuse skin, scalp, and hair with balancing, soothing nourishment.
Use our Sandalwood Serum Supreme topically as a living lipid to nourish scars, dry skin, sensitive skin, wrinkles, wounds, chapping, and more.
