Out of the several articles found in the tomb of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen (‘From Life here to Eternity’) were the seeds of Black cumin. The historical references to these seeds are also found in some of the oldest religious and medical texts by Hippocrates, Dioscorides, and the Bible.

Argan oil originated on Morocco’s Haha Coast and is derived from the fruit of the native argan tree. Since at least 600 BCE, the Phoenicians relied on the oil for healing and beauty. Taken from the kernels of the argan tree, it’s a natural plant oil that’s been around for generations in its native Morocco. Traditionally used in the country in both cooking and cosmetic processes, it’s historically been a mainstay of hair and skincare for Moroccan women. Argan oil today is one of the hottest beauty products on the market. With 30 kilograms of nuts required to produce one kilogram of oil, the price tag associated is often quite steep if buying pure, quality oils. Argan oil has been long known to soften, strengthen and add exceptional luster and shine to the hair. Lab research is still sparse on this relatively new wonder ingredient, but some scientists theorize that it’s the nutrient-rich nature of the oil that makes it so good for cosmetic purposes. Containing vitamin E and an omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid, both are great for promoting softness, strength and shine in the hair.
Neem oil (Azadirachta indica) is considered by the people of India to be sacred, the legendary Neem tree has come to symbolize good health and protection, leading the Indians to refer to it as the “village pharmacy”. They traditionally used the oil and the tree’s other parts for its natural insect repellant properties as well as to eliminate head lice and dandruff. The ancient Ayurvedic tradition is said to be comprised largely of formulations that involve the use of Neem in one form or another. The name “Neem” has its roots in the Sanskrit word “Nimba,” meaning “bestower of good health.” It has also been called “Ravisambha,” meaning “sun ray-like effects in providing health.” In Hindu texts, namely the Vedas, Neem is referred to as “Sarva Roga Nivarini,” meaning “one that cures all ailments and ills.” Throughout history, several elements of the diverse Neem tree were used to make herbal beauty treatments, insecticides, and first aid treatments for numerous skin ailments. The US National Academy of Science published a report in 1992 entitled “Neem: A tree for solving global problems” Neem oil derives from the fruits and seeds of the neem tree, which grow mainly in the Indian subcontinent.

The first documented use of cedarwood oil was by the ancient Egyptians two to three thousand years before the birth of Christ. In Ancient Egypt, Cedarwood Oil’s antimicrobial and insecticidal properties made it valuable for use in mummifying procedures. Throughout history, cedarwood oil has been used by a variety of cultures and in different ways to prevent or cure illnesses. Cedarwood oil was highly valued both in Babylon and Egypt. Inscribed within a clay tablet from Babylon, dating from 1800 BC, there is an order for imported oil of cedar, myrrh, and cypress. Cedarwood was also known to relax the body and mind, making it ideal for use in religious ceremonies and spiritual practices, such as communal prayer and independent meditation. Today, it continues to be used for similar applications as well as for cosmetic applications.
Orange Blossom (Citrus aurantium var Amara) is from the Bitter Orange tree, a resilient evergreen of the Rutaceae family.
