Curious about the many uses for Lavender Oil?

Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils in the world today, and for good reason! The use of Lavender can be dated back to as long as 2500 years ago when the Romans used it to scent their beds, baths, clothes and their bodies. Through their love of lavender, they eventually discovered this magical plant had medicinal properties.

Modern-day Lavender Oil is obtained most commonly through the steam distillation process. At Calia, our Lavender Oil is a unique blend of our very favourite European Lavender oils. Our unique blend has a wide range of notes, giving it a full, all-encompassing aroma.

Lavender Oil boasts a rich floral scent which is easily one of our favourites here at Calia, but we love it for more than just it's amazing fragrance! Lavender boasts a wide range of medicinal and therapeutic qualities that include:

Alleviating Migraine Headaches
Lavender oil is known to regulate serotonin levels, which helps to calm the part of the nervous system known to produce migraines and headaches. Massage lavender oil into your temples and along the back of the neck to relieve migraine headaches.

Restoring Skin Complexion & Treating Acne
Lavender oil is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties that are known to help to refresh and heal the skin while reducing skin blemishes. Lavender oil’s antiseptic properties inhibit the growth of bacteria that causes acne infection and will also effectively reduce signs of scarring when acne is healing.

Inducing Sleep
In recent years, Lavender oil has become a favourite for inducing sleep. Lavender has therapeutic properties that create a calm and relaxed state, and the scent is well-known to help the weary fall asleep easily.

Add 10 drops of Lavender oil to 1 cup of water into a spray bottle and shake well before spraying the mixture onto your pillow for a good night's rest. This is our top use for Lavender, and we wouldn't sleep as well without it!

Healing First-Degree Burns & Reducing Scarring
Lavender oil has antiseptic, antibacterial and circulatory stimulating properties. It naturally prevents infections from occurring, which can help speed up skin recovery and aid in the formation of new healthy tissues.

Simply apply Calia Lavender Oil directly onto burnt skin a few times a day until the wound has healed completely.

Promoting Hair Growth & Reducing Hair Loss
The circulatory stimulating properties of Lavender can also aid in scalp circulation, allowing nutrients to reach hair follicles, which promotes healthy hair growth. Lavender’s antiseptic and antibacterial action can also help control dandruff and scalp acne caused by fungal or bacterial infections.

Lavender Oil is a key ingredient in our Hydrating Shampoo Formula. Apart from its amazing properties, Lavender Oil has the ability to hydrate the scalp and balance sebum production, making it excellent for people with mixed scalp conditions!

It's easy to see why we are so in love with Lavender, and why the world has fallen in love with this amazing botanical wonder.

What is Argan Oil?

February 22, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

  

Ever since we launched our new Organic Argan Oil, we've been waiting to share with you all the amazingly versatile ways this 'liquid gold' can be used! As you will see, it is wonderful on its own but also makes a fantastic addition to our skin creams, and as a supplement to your every day Calia hair care routine. Read on to find out why our Organic Argan Oil should be a part of your all-natural beauty routine! 

What is Argan oil?

Argan Oil is a plant oil that originates from Morocco and is produced from the kernels of the Argan tree. Rich in vitamin A, C & E, antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid, Argan Oil has earned its popular nickname of “liquid gold”. Used for generations by Moroccan natives as a dietary supplement and a form of skin treatment, Argan oil contains beneficial properties for both organic hair and skin treatments.

What are the benefits of Argan Oil?

The benefits of Argan Oil are seemingly endless, but we will try to list our faves!

Argan Oil for the Skin:

Moisturizing:

  • With a high vitamin E and fat content, Argan Oil makes a wonderful moisturizer on its own. Use the oil straight on the skin, as it absorbs easily, leaving your skin feeling soft, without leaving any greasiness or irritation. Start small, or add a few drops to your favorite Calia Moisturizer.

Healing Acne:

  • In addition to vitamins, Argan Oil is also packed with antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. This property of Argan oil is known to aid in soothing and healing skin acne and other types of skin damage.

Anti-Aging:

  • Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays - and loss of collagen - can result in wrinkles as we age. Thankfully, Argan oil contains phytosterols, which helps the skin in producing its own natural collagen! This collagen production, along with Argan Oil’s naturally high levels of vitamin E, can assist the skin with elasticity, essentially smoothing out wrinkles! All the while, the natural antioxidants present in Argan Oil also provide natural protection from the sun’s UV rays (much like our popular Sea-buckthorn oil cream).

Preventing Stretch Marks: 

  • What can’t Argan Oil do? We are happy to report on this one! Argan oil has a super high vitamin E content, which many people know can actually increase the elasticity of the skin. Rubbing Argan Oil onto the skin during pregnancy can help to reduce the likelihood of stretch marks developing postpartum. How great is that?





    As previously mentioned, your skin isn’t the only part of your body that can benefit from Argan Oil! Other benefits to your body include:

    Hair Conditioning:

    • The fatty acids and vitamin E in Argan Oil make the oil a perfect hair nourisher. Argan Oil can help to treat split ends, tame frizzy hair and make your hair softer, silkier and shinier! Try rubbing a few drops into the palms of your hands and apply to the hair’s ends. 

    Nail Strengthening:

    • Argan Oil’s softening properties are ideal for brittle nails, dry hands and that troublesome cracked hard skin on the feet. Argan Oil can help to moisturize and soften even the toughest skin, leaving your hands and feet feeling moisturized, and nails feeling strong and healthy. Use it to supplement your favorite moisturizer for a deep skin conditioning treatment.

    How do you use Argan Oil?

    With all of the amazing ways Argan Oil can benefit your natural personal care, here are a few easy ways to incorporate it! Once you start using it you’ll never go back!

    1. Face Moisturizer

    • Simply apply a few drops of Argan Oil to the skin and gently rub it in as you would with any other lotion.
    • For a boost in moisturization, you could add a few drops of Argan Oil to your favorite face mask and boost its moisturization properties.

    2. Healing Acne

    • After washing your face and patting it dry, gently apply a few drops of Argan oil to the affected areas. Repeat it twice a day to help clear up mild acne.
    3. Preventing Stretch Marks
    • During pregnancy, apply the Argan Oil to potential trouble areas. This should prevent stretch marks from developing postpartum.
    4. Hair Conditioning
    • You could either add some Argan Oil to your usual conditioner or massage a few drops into your scalp after the shower and leave it to absorb overnight.

    5. Hair Styling

    • Rub a few drops of Argan Oil together in your palm and run it through your hair, especially on the ends of your hair, to tame your frizz and give your hair shine!

      Your TEK Brush Missing a Pin?

      February 18, 2018

      Ever since we teamed up with TEK brushes, we've been delighted to see the response from you to adopting their fantastically crafted wooden brushes into your natural hair care routines. 

      Many of you have written us to tell us that a wooden pin is missing, but did you know that is intentional? It's true! The design of the brush with one pin strategically missing allows for air to flow through the rubber cushion. This is for better brushing and is not a product defect! 

      However, in the case that you receive a brush with an additional missing pin, OR if you find that with use, one has fallen out or broken, TEK has provided us with extra wooden pins that can easily to be added back into the rubber cushion to restore the brush to its perfect state! 

      Also, as a word of caution, the Paddle Brush with Long Pins is extra sensitive, so be careful when using to avoid a pin disaster. 

      In case you receive a replacement pin, please refer to this easy video for instructions on how to do it.

      Get the video here.

      A NEW Calia Customer Review!

      February 08, 2018

      Hello, Calia community! 

      Today we are sharing a note from Calia customer Jackie Sunday! We hope you are all having an amazing week, enjoy! 

      "I've been using Calia for about a year and a half now, after becoming more and more cautious of the ingredients in everything I use. I love that I know what I'm using when I wash my hair with Calia, and know that it's 100% safe. I've been growing out my hair for years now and it's the longest and strongest it's ever been now! I now only have to wash my hair about once a week, and that's usually only because I need to brush through it. 

      I no longer use heat to style my hair. Calia has helped me embrace and love the natural, unruly texture of my hair, which is wavy when it's long (because of the weight) and curly when it's short. Because of my hair's texture, the Hydrating Conditioner is probably my favourite (if I had to pick only one!) as well as the Hydrating L
      eave-in Conditioner. These two products help immensely with my frizz here in the midwest humidity and make my hair so soft. I also really, really love the Rose Rejuvenating Cream for these dry winter months. I can't recommend, or thank Calia enough!!
