- Tea tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) is a traditional remedy of the Aboriginal tribes of Australia. Studies have shown that it has exceptional benefits for the skin. (Bassett IB, Pannowitz DL, Barnetson RS. A comparative study of tea-tree oil versus benzoylperoxide in the treatment of acne. Med J Aust 1990; 153(8):455-458.) Tea Tree Oil was included in the wound dressing kits of the Australian troops in World War 2. It’s one of few essential oils that can be used undiluted without irritating or drying the skin.
- Burdock (Arctium lappais) is used naturopathically to support the health of the skin and has wonderful clarifying properties. It has been studied for its ability to promote and support health in cells. (Lin, C. C., Lu, J. M., Yang, J. J., Chuang, S. C., and Ujiie, T. "Anti-inflammatory and radical scavenge effects of Arctium lappa.” Am J Chin Med 1996; 24 (2):127-137.)
- Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is an indigenous shrub that grows exclusively on the slopes of the Cedarberg Mountains in the Western Cape province of South Africa and has been used by traditional healers of the area for centuries. The soothing effect of Rooibos on the skin is also evident. (Sasaki YF, Yamada H, Shimoi K, et al. The clastogen-suppressing effects of green tea, Po-lei tea and Rooibos tea in CHO cells and mice. Mutat Res 1993; 286(2):221-232.)
- Bulbinella (Bulbine frutescence) is indigenous to South Africa and is widely used as a home remedy and by traditional healers for the skin. Bulbinella is effective in supporting skin health and is highly recommended for a natural first aid kit. Its clear, soothing gel forms an invisible seal over the skin, providing ongoing skin conditioning and support throughout the day.
- Ginger essential oil is extracted from ginger root and provides a toning and tightening effect on the skin, supporting healthy pores. (Grzanna, R., Lindmark, L., and Frondoza, C. G. Ginger--an herbal medicinal product with broad anti-inflammatory actions. J Med Food 2005; 8(2):125-132.)
- Lemon grass essential oil is extracted from lemon grass, and this oil is well-known in the east for its wonderful health-promoting properties on the skin and its support of a clear complexion. (Cheel J, Theoduloz C, Rodriguez J, et al. "Free radical scavengers and antioxidants from Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus (DC.) Stapf.).” J Agric Food Chem 2005; 53(7):2511-2517).
- Bitter aloe (Aloe ferox) is derived from a hardy plant that is indigenous to the south eastern Cape of South Africa. Aloe was even used in Ancient Egypt, supporting the skin of the royal family! Studies have shown this herb to have skin-supportive properties. (Paulsen, E., Korsholm, L., and Brandrup, F. "A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of a commercial Aloe vera gel in the treatment of slight to moderate psoriasis vulgaris.” J Eur Acad.Dermatol Venereol 2005; 19(3):326-331.) (Reuter, J., Jocher, A., Stump, J., Grossjohann, B., Franke, G., and Schempp, C. M. "Investigation of the anti-inflammatory potential of Aloe vera gel (97.5%) in the ultraviolet erythema test.” Skin Pharmacol Physiol 2008; 21(2):106-110.)
- Gotu kola (Hydrocotyle asiatica) is a plant that grows throughout Africa and Asia and is used both topically and internally to cleanse, as well as to support circulation. It has also been studied with regard to supporting the skin. (Boiteau P and Batsimamanga AR. "Asiaticoside extracted from Centella asiatica, and its therapeutic uses in the healing of experimental refractory wounds, leprosy, skin tuberculosis and lupus." Therapie 1950; 11:125-149.)
- Witch hazel (Hamamelis Virginianum) is a plant whose integral component is in the medicine chest of many Native Americans. Hamamelis is known for its astringent properties and has an excellent toning effect on the skin. (Deters, A., Dauer, A., Schnetz, E., Fartasch, M., and Hensel, A. "High molecular compounds (polysaccharides and proanthocyanidins) from Hamamelis virginiana bark: influence on human skin keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation and influence on irritated skin.” Phytochemistry 2001; 58(6):949-958.) (Hughes-Formella, B. J., Bohnsack, K., Rippke, F., Benner, G., Rudolph, M., Tausch, I., and Gassmueller, J. "Anti-inflammatory effect of hamamelis lotion in a UVB erythema test.” Dermatology 1998; 196(3):316-322.)

- Lavender essential oil is one of the most useful, popular herbs with a range of uses. The name, lavender, comes from the French word, lavare, which means 'to wash', giving a good indication of its cleansing properties. It’s used naturopathically as an excellent skin tonic and natural soother. (Ghelardini C, Galeotti N, Salvatore G, et al. Local anaesthetic activity of the essential oil of Lavandula angustifolia. Planta Med 1999; 65(8):700-703.).
- Neem (Azadirachta indica) is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine for its cleansing and soothing properties. It has been studied in modern medicine for its ability to promote skin health. (Pandey, S., Jha, A., and Kaur, V. Aqueous extract of neem leaves in treatment of psoriasis vulgaris. Indian Journal of Dermatol Venereol Leprol 1994; 60(2):63-67.)
- Tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) is a traditional remedy of the Aboriginal tribes of Australia. Studies have shown that it has exceptional benefits for the skin.

Now known worldwide for its antioxidant properties, Rooibos has a remarkable soothing effect on the skin! (Bramati L, Minoggio M, Gardana C, et al. Quantitative characterization of flavonoid compounds in Rooibos tea (Aspalathus linearis) by LC-UV/DAD. J Agric Food Chem 2002; 50(20):5513-5519.)
