Beauty Editors Note:
I discovered Azulene Oil when I worked in a Day Spa. Never heard of it until then but I bought this oil on a regular basis while I was working there. You might want to check it out. ~Dana Hinnant
“Unless you’re allergic to a specific oil, they’re well tolerated by sensitive skin.”~Dr. Jeannette Graf , Dermatologist
The Benefits Of Azulene Oil
Azulene Oil was a part of our arsenal at the day spa that I worked at. We used it in our facials, body treatments, and nail services. So, basically we used it from head to toe. My colleagues and I even used it in our hair.
Azulene Oil is derived from German chamomile flowers and it has a distinctive Smurf-blue color. (If you’re not sure what a Smurf is you’re in luck as they have their own website at smurf.com). This oil is beneficial to sensitive skin types and is known for its calming, anti-inflammatory, and redness-reducing properties. Since we had a facial treatment centered around Azulene Oil, sometimes I would apply it to my clients who just had a glycolic facial.
The only drawback of this Azulene Oil is you have to be careful because it does stain. Please do a patch test on any product or oil before you take it on full throttle.
