In beauty treatment, aromatherapy is very important. It consists of using Essential Oils (EO) for creating curative effect on different parts of the body and face. This procedure is meant to assist natural ability of skin to balance, regulate, heal and restore its natural glow. 

The EOs are derived from flowers, plants, resins and roots. These are the basic life force of organic flowers and plants, and are very effective in helping increase circulation and promote new cell growth, besides eliminating the toxins. Their calming and soothing effect can be experienced by all and is helpful in organic beauty regime. 

EOs consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed by the body. Oils are introduced into the body by inhalation which has the quickest effect. Entering through the Cillia (the fine hairs lining the nose) to the limbic system which when stimulated releases endorphins, neurotransmitters and other 'feel-good' chemicals. These control our moods, emotions, state of skin and general appearance, memory and learning, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, stress levels and hormonal balance. This is why EOs have such a powerful effect on our general state of mind. Stress-free mind is essential for overall good health as well as for maintaining skin well hydrated , revitalized, wrinkle-free and shining.

The other method of applying EOs  is through massage of skin so that they penetrate the skin via tiny hair follicles and sweat glands.  

In Herbally Radiant products, special care has been taken to choose the right EOs, or blend of them, with most appropriate and compatible base or carrier oil.  The mixing of EOs and base oil is done in incremental steps. This should be done only by trained person or under expert guidance to ensure right effect on skin.
Different EOs are used in facial and body treatments. Different skin types also react differently to various EOs.   It is important to ensure that aromatherapy through EOs is not given during pregnancy, or given in a well regulated way.

EOs should always be packed in amber or dark coloured glass bottles to prevent ultra violet rays penetrating the contents. These can degrade quickly if exposed to sources of heat, even light bulbs, and sun light.
Right kind of EOs effectively improve skin tone, reduce inflammation, increase blood circulation, relieve tension, stress and headaches, regulate hormones, relax muscles , stimulate the immune system and energize the whole system.

After successfully testing the efficacy of some EOs, Herbally Radiant has launched new range of Cleansers, Toners, Serums and Scrubs under the CLEAN range,  especially to address the problem of acne, black spots, lines and many skin disorders. Those with sensitive skin need to carefully evaluate the product before purchase by reading the contents on the label and checking with the manufacturer on the possible side effects.  The special CLEAN range formulations have already received good customer reviews, and Herbally Radiant is now planning to promote them widely with special incentive schemes.
