If you are a regular reader, you know that I am a beauty product junkie. While my main weakness is MAC, I enjoy using natural products with healthy ingredients as much as possible, especially when it comes to skincare.
Lately, I’ve been loving anything and everything containing Himalayan sea buckthorn.
Because sea buckthorn contains omegas 3, 6, 7, and 9, it assists with collagen production and combats aging . It can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I really like the Sibu sea buckthorn seed oil to heal wounds, burns, and scars. It can also be used to treat eczema and dry skin and diminish age spots. You can see my full review of it here.
While I love using products containing sea buckthorn, I’ve been taking sea buckthorn oil internally ever since I had Michael.
(Since it is an herb, I didn’t want to take it while pregnant.)
Each day, I take several drops of sea buckthorn berry oil in a glass of seltzer water or in a smoothie to support gastrointestinal, skin, and dental health, liver function, and to nourish my cell membranes.
Other health benefits of taking the oil internally include:
Support of women’s health
Vision support & dry eye
Sun / UV stress
It’s probably too soon to tell if it is making a noticeable difference in my overall health, but I’ll be more than happy to report back in a month or so (if you’re interested).
Have you ever heard of sea buckthorn? Dr. Oz recently discussed it on his show, so I’m guessing it will become pretty mainstream within no time at all.
Have you ever tried any supplements or skincare products that contain the oil? I’d love to hear what others think of it.
