GREEMU Oil--A Rose Academy Review

This month I was able to try a new to me product. GREEMU is a 100% natural blend of plant oils. It is sold by a company called Devonian and is an alternative to using Emu oil. Beauty oils like Emu oil are becoming highly popular because they can help with fine lines and skin elasticity. They also protect the outer layer of skin cells while making your skin appear younger and more healthy. Before receiving this product, I had never even heard of Emu oil, which originated in Australia mainly being used for a hair or skin treatment. GREEMU is a green alternative to Emu oil and is plant based therefore no animals are used in its preparation.

If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you will know that I have been on a journey to live a more chemically free lifestyle. This oil fits the bill. No harmful chemicals to be absorbed into the skin. The skin is our largest organ and when we use products that contain harmful chemicals, those chemicals are quickly and easily absorbed into our skin.

 

Greemu Devonian Review




GREEMU contains these five ingredients:
  • Macadamia Oil--regenerative oil used to help heal scars and sunburns
  • Palm Oil--certified organic and a natural antioxidant
  • Shea Butter--protecting and emollient properties, a perfect moisturizer for the skin that penetrates deep into the skin and leaves a smooth, satiny finish
  • Sunflower Seen Oil--effective against acne, eczema, and more and a highly hydrating oil
  • Rice Bran Oil--the beauty secret of Japanese women and anti-aging properties
I received a 4 ounce bottle of this amazing oil. This thick and silky unscented oil has many uses. What did I use this oil for?

At first I was really excited to try this oil in my hair as a finishing conditioning treatment, but I didn't end up using it only for my hair. While I did apply it to my hair, I didn't really like the way it felt in my hair. And if you have read my posts about natural hair care and not using shampoos filled with chemicals, then you will know that I am very particular about the products that I use in my hair. Of course I snapped a picture of my hair before using the oil, but I didn't snap an after picture simply because I did not use it everyday like I had originally planned.
I also applied GREEMU oil to my skin, particularly my face. This oil has a very nice silky feel to it. I applied a drop a bit bigger than the size of a pea and smoothed it over my face and down my neck. It does take some time to fully absorb into the skin so I found that I preferred to apply it at night before going to bed. This oil is not greasy feeling even though it is a nice thick oil. I believe that is because of the plant based products being blended together. Several of the products were chosen simply because they are excellent moisturizers for the skin. Unlike lotion, which is water based and absorbs quickly into the skin leaving little time for the skin to actually be moisturized, this oil slowly absorbs into the skin moisturizing cells as it does so.

I spent a little too much time one afternoon in the sun and ended up with a sunburn on my face. I applied a small drop of this oil. A few days later, the skin on my forehead began to look very dry, almost like it was getting ready to peel. Again I applied some GREEMU oil and that really helped the dryness and it didn't peel. I am thinking that was the Macadamia Oil helping this time! I really enjoy this oil and will miss it when my bottle runs out.
