Directions for Use
For use as a moisturiser, protective barrier, mild antiseptic on face, feet and body, beard and hair. Also use for massage and shaving.
For shaving: Wash skin with warm water, drip 5-10 drops of oil onto hand, smooth onto skin, wet skin again and shave with plenty warm water (oil and water layers slide nicely wet hair makes a soft shave), pat dry.
For dry hair or beard: Use just a tiny amount or hair looks oily. A couple of drops on finger tips, massage into hands, then massage finger tips on scalp and hair ends.
This product is good for use on most skin types, but there are some known sensitivities. Test for sensitivity on a patch of skin before use. For external use only: don’t swallow or put in eyes. Keep away from children. If you are pregnant or unwell get medical advice before use.
Possible sensitivities: Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil and Wheat Germ Oil are rich oils that may cause spots in people who are prone to spots – in this case use sparingly to check, since the Tea Tree will combat the bacteria in spots. Some people are sensitive to Tea Tree Oil, which can cause a rash, but the other oils will reduce this, so again, try it on small skin area. People with gluten sensitivities may be sensitive to the Wheat Germ Oil.
The unrefined oils, especially Wheat Germ Oil, have distinctive a golden colour that may gently discolour pale and bleached clothes and sheets. This mostly a problem when excessive amounts come into contact with white cotton, such as when used for massage.
