Mandy creates them from the following organic oils:
- Organic grapeseed and organic sweet almond, rich in vitamins and minerals, helps tone the skin.
- Organic rice bran oil reduces the formation of wrinkles and slows down aging.
- Organic squalene helps hydrate and protect the skin, encourages regeneration of healthy skin cells, and prevents premature aging of the skin.

- Organic rose hip oil improves elasticity and has a rejuvenating effect on the skin.
Rose Hip Oil is also very high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids as well as vitamins. It is known to have powerful healing properties, and is also used to treat conditions like acne and eczema. It is a powerful anti-aging oil that restores elasticity to skin, and aids in the repair of damaged skin. It is also said to help protect the skin from environmental assaults against such as pollution as well as other environmental stressors.

Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose.
Rose Face Elixir with Sandalwood and Frankincense is a deeply nourishing and hydrating oil for the face that makes the skin remarkably soft, supple, hydrated, and radiant. While this beautiful oil boasts the most refined rose scent imaginable- it is also a potent anti-aging serum. In addition to the properties enumerated in the above listed ingredients, it should be noted that Mandy's choice of Rose, Frankincense, and Sandalwood is significant.
Sandalwood is a calming and soothing oil that is very helpful in treating dry and sensitive skin. Frankincense is known for having ant-wrinkle and anti-inflammatory properties that make it the choice of many in skincare products. Rose is an antioxidant rich extract the heals and soothes inflamed irritated skin, and is even said to purify the skin and strengthen capillaries. When combined with the other oils in the Rose Face Elixir with Sandalwood and Frankincense, the result is one mighty anti-aging face serum that does as much for your skin as it does for your senses.
This is a very potent and concentrated serum, therefore only the tiniest bit is needed for the face and décolleté. I warm up two drops in my hand and then massage it into my skin, and the result is unmitigated delight. I am utterly transfixed by the scent, but am equally astounded by the results to my skin. When I use it at night, the following morning my skin is beautifully radiant, hydrated, and nourished. My face boasts a clarity that is complemented by the the soft and supple appearance of my skin. This undeniably opulent oil is a brilliant and subtle rose that is unlike any that has graced your nose or skin before. Mandy has truly outdone nature by perfecting the rose- a feat that I did not realize was possible to achieve until now.
