Noon, Balancing Hormones Oil

This oil is energised with prana vital energy to bring life back to your skin, we love it because it helps soothe PMS symptoms around that time of the month. By using balancing hormones oil, our hormonal acne is kept to a minimum, and maybe it’s just what your sacral chakra needed all month long. Apply 2 drops on sacral chakra (below the navel), solar plexus chakra (between ribs) and on soles of feet and then rub gently anti-clockwise, then apply again after 15 minutes  on sacral chakra only and rub clockwise. Feel your body re-balancing itself in every way, this is the self-care product you never knew you needed until you tried it.

Saskia, Rose, Musk and Cedarwood Emollient Butter

For the skin that needs extra winter care, this is our favourite, the rose oil is an amazing natural remedy for acne and other bacterial skin infections. In addition, it can also help improve the permeability of the skin, and make it healthier, thereby more likely to fight hives and other skin conditions that come up in cold weather. Cedarwood oil is beneficial for other skin conditions like reducing the appearance of scars and soothe symptoms of eczema. 

Essentials, Eye Tint in Bronze

Multi-use makeup is a favourite amongst the Source Beauty team, and we love this shade of bronze to glam up your makeup effortlessly the beauty of this natural eye tint is that you can also use it on the cheekbones to highlight or dab it into your lipstick to accentuate your nude colour too.
