Master Essential Oil Skin Care Class! Learn How to Use Essential Oils in Organic, Green & Clean Skin Care

Hello Essential Oilers,

This is exciting news- I just taught our first Master Essential Oil Skin Care Class – 5 Part Series.  For 11 1/2 years I developed, researched and manufactured Organic, Green and clean skin care based on essential oils in the South of France . During this time I learned so much about formulating with essential oils safely and effectively plus all the rules and regulations of skin care in Europe. Yes, I arrived just in 2003 for new EU regulations which included allergens for essential oils. Every kind of auditor (from the equivalent to the FDA to workers compensation inspector) that could come visit my laboratory did because I was the new director  ! Wow and I didn’t understand the language everything had to be translated. What a process. I learned something else how to be more reflective before speaking and taking more time to answer.

In this same moment, Ecocert decided to offer an Organic Certification for Cosmetics ( Body Care, Facial Care, & Perfumery), so I jumped on this and transformed the simple formulations into Organic immediately however it took me 7 years to transform the rest of the line of natural skin care products plus develop new ones ; 120 products in total! It was one of most challenging yet rewarding experiences that I have ever had.I passed  this information on for FREE to all who wanted to learn more how to use essential oils in Organic skin care. I hope you enjoyed it and for all who missed it we offering a Special Introductory offer where you can receive the recordings to watch whenever you  would like for only $99.97 regularly  $199.97 ! It will be  made available by July 3rd, 2019. Sign up now because this offer is only good until June 26th, 2019!

Attention to the formulation for Mosquito Bites even though IFRA says that a high % can be used for this formulation. Please only use 2 % to 3 % maximum. Remember when making skin care products that they are patch skin tested on so many people and put in vitro also a toxicologist has to look at the formulation before it is put on the market. Please use your Common Scents and do a patch skin test before using and do not use in pregnancy and children under 8 years or anyone with sensitive skin.

Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil- Is it Powerful?

Hello,

Lots of people ask me what is one of the most powerful essential oils?  For me it is Cinnamon Leaf not Cinnamon Bark however I have decided to really go into depth about Cinnamon Leaf and Cinnamon Bark for the next 3 months. We will discuss their therapeutic  properties, how to use them and their contraindications through videos on my Youtube Channel called Learning Essential Oils with Lorrie .

Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil- Cinnamomum verum J.Presl (Syn : Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume)

Botanical Family- Lauraceae

Country of Origin- Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Indochina

Major Chemical Constituents- Eugenol (<= 85,00%) Eugenyl acetate (<= 8,00%) Benzyl benzoate (<= 7,00%) Beta caryophyllene (1,50 to 7,00%) Cinnamal (Cinnamaldehyde) (<= 3,00%)

Cinnamon Leaf in Madagascar

The aroma is  spicy, stimulating, warm, and sweet. It is middle note in perfumery. Cinnamon leaves are steam distilled. The color- pale yellow to brownish. Cinnamon leaf is high in a phenol called eugenol. Eugenol has also shown excellent antimicrobial activity in studies, being active against fungi and a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria (Marchese A, Barbieri R, Coppo E, Orhan IE, Daglia M, Nabavi SF, Izadi M, Abdollahi M, Nabavi SM, Ajami M. 2017)

Eugenol molecular structure

Cinnamon leaf essential oil also has shown to be effective against Salmonella Newport on organic leafy greens. (Todd J, Friedman M, Patel J, Jaroni D, Ravishankar S. 2013)

In my  five videos, you will learn how to effectively and safely use Cinnamon leaf essential oil  in formulations for colds, flus, coughs, as a protective air spray and for the chills! In these videos, you will see what essential oils that I have combined with Cinnamon leaf.  Here are the essential oils that combine well with Cinnamon Leaf (Hargis L. 2015)

Clove*, Orange, Lemon, Bergamot, Nutmeg*, Coriander, Cardamom, Frankincense, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Ginger, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Rosemary, Niaouli, Ravintsara, Tea Tree, Black Pepper, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Rose*, Myrrh, Lavender, Lime, Pine, Mandarin Red or Green, Oregano, Thyme thymol, Thyme linalol, Savory, Spearmint, Spikenard, Wintergreen, Yarrow and Ylang Ylang

Contraindications- Do not diffuse alone; always blend with other essential oils. Do not use in pregnancy. Skin Irritant. Do not use in bath or steam inhalation. Do not use on children under 8 years of age. When using Cinnamon leaf only use in 0.25 max in most IFRA categories. Please contact me for more information my IFRA calculator  at lorrie@lorriehargis.com

*IFRA- Rose and Clove contain methyleugenol which is considered a skin Irritant when combining Cinnamon leaf with them  this could cause  formulations to exceed the IFRA restriction limits to be considered safe. Nutmeg contains safrole which can only be used in very small amounts and Cinnamon leaf contains small amounts blending them together can cause restrictions in formulations according to the IFRA Standards.

Enjoy all the wonderful attributes of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil.

Essential Oil Blending Workshop in Indiana – Sept 2018

Hello,

Do YOU want to know how to make your own blend using essential oils?

I can’t wait to teach and train you how to blend in a fun, easy, yet scientific way – where you will learn how to make formulations according to the international fragrance standards. This is something that I did here in France as the owner/operator of an organic skin care company for over 11 1/2 years where I transformed over 120 products from Natural to Organic.

It took 7 years to do it! However I did it with a wonderful team and lovely, intelligent chemistry interns from Universities all over France. As you can see in the photo below, I continue to teach Masters II Chemistry Students as visiting professor at the Faculté des Sciences, University of Montpellier – teaching them how to use essential oils in skin care products (facial & body).

So this is where I am coming from – researching ingredients, developing products that were certified organic by Ecocert  and meeting the international standards and European regulations on using essential oils in skin care. Now I am going to share  this information with you, in this Essential Oil Blending Workshop.
