  • Kukui Nut Oil
    Kukui Nut Oil

    Also called Candlenut Oil and Indian Walnut, what a wonderful, rich and heavy healing oil this is. Made from the cold pressed nut of the Kukui Tree and native to Hawaii. Rich in vitamins A and E and containing very high levels of essential fatty acids linoleic and alpha-linolenic, Kukui oil has been used for centuries as a cure for eczema and other dry or damaged skin conditions including sunburn and exposure.

    I like to refer to jojoba oil as "liquid gold" for napptural hair. It is golden, rich but light with a soft texture and nutty aroma.

    Embracing the Silvering Crown – The Grey Hair Blues

    DeecoilyIt’s inevitable. The last frontier of a head of healthy, natural hair – the process of going grey.  We all have to face it. It will happen. All of us who are heading for a “mature” age, and even some of our younger women who have that early-graying gene, or the stress-caused change have to face it, though earlier than the rest of us.
