"What in the world is that?"
Interesting name, for a great product.
Oils can really help our skin and if you remember, last year I was given the opportunity to review a product called Emu Oil. This Australian oil from the Emu is an excellent hair and skin treatment. But using animal sources for beauty products is not sometimes the best, so that the same company that created Emu Oil came up with an alternative: GREEMU. (Green + Emu = GREEMU)
Completely plant based, this oil matches the strength and properties of Emu Oil.
GREEMU contains only five ingredients:
- Macadamia Oil - high in mono-unsaturated fatty acids, which helps to heal sunburns and scars
- Palm Oil - a natural antioxidant and has lots of Vitamin K and magnesium
- Shea Butter - a wonderful moisturizer with lots of Vitamin E
- Sunflower Seed Oil - effective against acne and very hydrating
- Rice Bran Oil - extracted from the outer coat of brown rice and is rich in minerals and vitamins
What can GREEMU be used for?
The ways are endless....
First off, GREEMU is an excellent moisturizer. Damage to our outer skin cells are what causes dryness and cracking. This oil helps damaged skin and builds that protective outer layer. I would take a drop (literally, a drop) and spread it all over my face. I live in a pretty dry climate, so I also rubbed the oil on my elbows and legs. I was very happy with how long this oil moisturized! I truly only applied it once a day, and my skin was nice and happy. And like I said, a lot goes a long way, so the 4 ounce bottle will last quite a while.
Another part of yourself that is helped by GREEMU is your hair. This oil can help damaged hair, and stop split ends. When I received it I began using it in my hair, after my shower. I loved the way it made my hair and scalp feel. I also completely stopped using any conditioner in the shower, and just use a simple shampoo and that is it. After I towel dry my hair, I put a couple of drops on my hands and rub it into my scalp. A couple more drops I rub through my hair. (I do have pretty long hair.) I can then use a comb and go through my hair without any tangles.
GREEMU is also excellent for skin damage. On vacation a couple of weeks ago, we visited a water park. My son completely forgot to apply sunblock to his back. That night, his back was red and painful. I had brought along my oil and used enough to coat his whole back. He said that it instantly relieved the pain and he really liked it because it is fragrance free. The next day I applied it again and that second night, his skin was not even really red anymore.
I have been using this oil, daily, for the last five weeks. The level of the oil is about an inch from the top of the bottle - at this rate I estimate that the bottle would last for another four months.
I really encourage you to give this oil a try! And do look around at both of the Devonian and Koru Naturals websites! These are high quality products that are excellent choices for your hair and skin.
