1. SKINCARE BENEFITS
Ingredients have been chosen for their ability to work wonders for the skin, through clinically-proven benefits, the test of time in traditional use & Lucy Stevens’ first-hand experience of using oils in her therapy clinics for over a decade. High Linoleic (Omega 6) oils are predominant in the Heart & Soul collection as these are fast absorbing & non-comedogenic, leaving no greasy residue, just silky smooth skin, whatever the skin type. Organic essential oils & absolutes are chosen both for their therapeutic benefits & delightful aromas.
The next aspect of creation is aromatics. Natural aromas have been carefully balanced to create multi-layered, aromatherapeutic blends & are informed by the aromas which Lucy’s customers respond to most positively via the olfactory response. The heart is said to be the ‘home of the mind’ & the impact that aromas have on our brains is extremely powerful.
A vital element of the collection, which is carefully considered during formulation, is the “energetic” aspect of essential oils. Essential oils are vital, botanical extracts that radiate a life force, which in aromatherapy is considered to have a profound effect on the heart & soul as well as physiologically. In many cultures, essential oils are attributed energetic aspects. Some essential oils are considered light & bright, others deep & heavy. Some have an affinity with the heart, others with the mind; some are cooling, others warming, and so on. In Lucy’s aromatherapy clinics, she asks her customers how they would like to feel after their treatment. She then selects essential oils which will help address these needs. These desired feelings are an inspiration for the OV Heart & Soul Collection, alongside the different skin concerns.
Each formula in the Heart & Soul collection has this triple aspect in its desired effect – to positively impact the skin, the brain & the mind/heart/soul.
The result of this multi-faceted approach? Unique, active, effective, original, multi-dimensional skincare products.
