EVERYDAY OIL - MAINSTAY 2 OZ.
Mainstay (Original): 100% plant-based signature scent that is mysterious but familiar, uplifting but calming - an homage to the ocean, salty skin and long trips taken with one little bag, Mainstay will leave a subtle scent on your skin all day long.
All natural, unisex skincare for your whole body + whole family. A blend of organic cold-pressed plant oils and steam-distilled essential oils that are cleansing, hydrating + balancing. For use on the face, body + hair (everywhere).
The Mainstay blend is the signature blend of cold-pressed plant oils; Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba and Castor Oil. The essential oils are the Everyday Oil Mainstays : Palo Santo, Lavender, Geranium and Clary Sage. A blend that is a beautiful contradiction. Mysterious but familiar, uplifting but calming, cleansing, moisturizing, clarifying and healing.
Use Everyday Oil generously from your head to your toes whenever you want to moisturize, cleanse or refresh. 100% plant-based with no synthetic ingredients or preservatives of any kind. Carefully formulated for balance, it has a texture that absorbs quickly and imparts a dewy glow. Everyday Oil is truly a holistically cleansing oil and we recommend using it in place of face wash. You can also use Everyday Oil as a deep conditioner, beard oil, cuticle oil, natural insect repellent, after-sun, after-surf, after-shave, bath soak, massage oil, to help prevent stretch marks, to help keep tattoos fresh, as a nursing salve, or wherever you need :)
CAN I REALLY USE THIS AS A FACE WASH?
Yes, the oils are truly balancing and Everyday Oil is a more holistic way to cleanse your skin. While it is all-natural, it really does work, we promise.
We have been taught from a young age that we need to use face wash and then use lotion to moisturize. When you use traditional face wash, even the gentlest kind, it strips your skin and removes its natural barrier. Replacing your skin's natural oils with lotion, full of fillers and emollients, fragrances and preservatives, wreaks havoc on our skin. To compensate for what has been stripped away, often your skin will attempt to create balance by over-producing its own oils.
Rather than stripping your skin, Everyday Oil balances with your skin's natural oils, bringing many anti-microbial, cleansing and healing benefits. Imagine them going into your pores and living alongside your skin's natural barriers and defenses, cleansing and purifying holistically instead of stripping and replacing them completely. In this way, your skin will become balanced. Even on days when you use nothing at all your skin will be fine. Even when you are camping, or the airline loses your bag...your skin will be fine, it will be in balance.
One of the best things about Everyday Oil is escaping that feeling that your skin will "freak out" if you stay overnight somewhere and have to skip your normal skin care routine. Let your skin be free from the cycle of being stripped of its own defenses and left to desperately over-produce its own oils to compensate for the loss.
While it may seem counter-intuitive, Everyday Oil works well for people with oily complexions or challenges with acne as there are elements in the oils that have been proven to combat acne and skin mutations. Many, many users have shared their testimonials that Everyday Oil beautifully balances their "problem skin."
HOW TO USE AS A FACE WASH
There are no rules about how you use Everyday Oil as a face wash, but here is our recommendation ~
Rinse your face with warm water and while it is still damp, apply Everyday Oil and massage lightly into face and neck. Either walk away and let it all soak in, or dry lightly with a towel and apply a bit more for extra moisture.
For an occasional gentle exfoliation (or to remove dirt, make-up, etc), massage Everyday Oil into damp skin and wet a clean washcloth to wipe away dirt, grime, make-up, etc. Apply more Everyday Oil when you are finished.
Once you become more familiar with Everyday Oil you will find your own routine as well as new techniques and uses for it ❤️
To remove make-up or more significant dirt and grime ~
Splash a little warm water on your face then massage two pumps of Everyday Oil into your face and neck. Wet a clean washcloth and wipe away any residue. Repeat if necessary.
Most "make-up removers" are primarily mineral oil, which is an oil derived from petroleum. Everyday Oil works just as well as mineral oil based make-up removers without the petroleum by-products.
Here at Everyday Oil, we are a big fan of beards. Beards often harbor bacteria, and Everyday Oil's anti-microbial properties are perfect to keep your beard fresh, clean and smelling great. Use Everyday Oil liberally as you would a "beard oil" and rejoice.
As a treatment for dry ends, use what little is left on the hands after use on your face and body. Rub it into the ends of your hair where it gets drier, or mix a little with your favorite styling product to add a bit of nourishing moisture.
For curly, more textured or coarse hair, use more liberally.
If you like more product in your hair or a slightly wet look, use as much as you would like.
For extra moisture, mix one pump with your conditioner.
Everyday Oil has immense anti-microbial and anti-fungal benefits, so it is helpful for dandruff and scalp issues. To use as a scalp mask, rub into your scalp before shampooing.
For an extra conditioning mask, apply on dry hair from root to tip and let sit (for as little as 5 minutes or as long as overnight) before shampooing.
OIL BEFORE MAKE-UP
We generally recommend using Everyday Oil before other cosmetics as a nourishing, hydrating primer.
NATURAL INSECT REPELLANT
Geranium and Palo Santo are natural insect and tick repellents, so our Mainstay blend makes an excellent bug deterrent. Try using it on your pups for this purpose (and to make them smell amazing).
SHAVING WITH EO
Everyday Oil can be used as a shaving oil and after-shave. Its anti-bacterial, cleansing properties help prevent in-grown hairs and bacterial infections caused by shaving ~ so keep your shave beautiful and healthy with Everyday Oil.
The vitamin E and essential fatty acids in Everyday Oil make it an excellent salve for preventing and treating stretch marks. Apply liberally and daily in areas where stretch marks may form or have formed.
TO KEEP TATTOOS FRESH
Everyday Oil will keep new tattoos super hydrated while helping them heal faster without unnecessary scabbing.
AS A NURSING SALVE
Skin that is raw, irritated and dry is more vulnerable to bacteria and needs moisturizing and healing as well as anti-bacterial pathogen-fighting elements. Everyday Oil helps restore moisture and heals nipples while being 100% natural for nursing mamas.
You can truly use Everyday Oil wherever you need ~ we love you.
