- Moisturizing base cream (60ml) to add these oils to for healing and calming troubled skin

Suggestions for use:
Cleanse skin with the helichrysum hydrosol. Spray the hydrosol onto your face and wipe off gently with a tissue or with cotton balls. You can also use this method to freshen up, as this hydrosol is very mild.
When getting ready for bed after cleaning your skin, put 5mls (1 teaspoon) of rosehip oil onto a saucer; add 3 drops of grapefruit essential oil and 1 drop of carrot seed essential oil. Mix well. Massage this blend gently into face, neck and chest. Give yourself 20 minutes before you go to bed to allow it to soak into your skin, not your pillow.
After a shower (do not use soap on your skin), it is time to moisturize. Put a small amount of moisturizing base cream on your hand (about the size of a dime), add 1 drop of grapefruit essential oil and 1 drop of carrot seed essential oil. Rub hands together to emulsify and massage into face and neck.
You can also premix your cream and carrier oil blends.
