Sunflower Seed Oil
As its name suggests, sunflower seed oil is extracted from the seeds of sunflowers. A great source of vitamin E, sunflower oil has emollient properties which help the skin to retain its moisture by locking it within its cells. This oil’s wealth of vitamin E & A also provide antioxidants which protect the skin from harmful UV rays & other environmental stressors. Sunflower seed oil is also high in omega-6 fatty acids, which provide anti-inflammatory properties that help to lower skin redness & roughness, while also enhancing the development of new skin cells. Due to its overall cooling nature, Ayurveda considers sunflower oil to be the most balancing oil for pitta-type skin.
First grown in India, gotu kola can be found in the Himalayan Mountain Range. According to Dr. Frawley, a leading Ayurvedic doctor, yogis ingest the plant prior to meditation because of its calming, stabilizing effects on the body & mind. Gotu kola is a brain tonic, as it revitalizes brain cells & is also packed with vitamin C. We include this powerful plant into our infusion for its bitter, cooling & purifying effects on pitta-type skin.
Did you know that coriander is the seed of a cilantro plant?

It also promotes feelings of relaxation thanks to its sweet, herbaceous aroma.
