Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
In a glass or bowl, add the ingredients one at a time and mix well. The obtained oil is transferred to the dedicated container and left to rest for 24 hours, for synergization.

It is a complex oil, rich in ingredients with anti-inflammatory and toning effects, and improving peripheral circulation. It smells quite pleasant, thanks to the clary sage essential oil.

Apply daily on clean skin, preferably in the evening. Massage the afferent areas in the direction of the heart, with circular and smoothing movements of comfortable intensity. After a treatment of 4-6 weeks, there will be a break for a month, then it can be resumed, depending on the needs. 
The oil is not recommended for use during pregnancy. The preparation contains a relatively high percentage of essential oils and vegetable oils, especially tamanu oil, which contains substances with strong action. It is recommended to perform a tolerance test 24 hours before starting the treatment, especially for people with sensitive skin.
The oil is cloudy and can naturally show sediment. Shake the bottle before use!

Options and explanations:

  • macadamia oil is chosen for being an optimal basis for massage, but can be replaced with sesame oil, almond, apricot kernel, grape seed or other vegetable oils, according to preference
  • chamomile extract is included in the formula for its strong anti-inflammatory action, which is needed in such treatments; can be replaced with licorice CO2 extract (approximately 0.5%) or arnica CO2 extract (approximately 2%), adjustments being made by decreasing the percentage of macadamia oil
