Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
I have a sensitive skin, Alhamdulillah. Since I was young I have psoriasis. My mother took me to every places and specialist to get me cured. It helped a bit and I stopped scratches myself until bleed but it came again soon. I also get allergy reaction easily by eating seafood.
I prone to have sinus as well. Every time I woke up in the morning for Fajr, my nose blocked with mucus. I have pressure-like pain headache, pain behind the eyes, toothache, or facial tenderness.
When I was on my late 20 I started to question why these happened to me. I wanted answers to my problems. And I want it now! Alhamdulillah, through my husband Allah showed me that I am very sensitive to smell when my husband used his perfumes. Some smell made me headache and change my moods.
I hated doing laundry. The smell of the laundry powder, made me sick. I begin to understand that the fragrances of the washing powder trigger my sinus when I walked along the washing powder aisle in the supermarket. Since then I was very particular about smell. I avoid products with fragrances.
One day my husband and I were at Community Art and Craft Market. When we pass by a stall selling perfumes my husband stopped to have a browse. I told him that I will be at the next stall because the fragrances make me headache. He came and told me about a perfume that he really likes. He wanted me to smell that perfume and if I like it he will buy it. Masha Allah, it was a pleasant smell and I did not get headache. Then I came to know that it was an essential oil.
That was the beginning of my world of essential oils and natural skin care products. I found out that the essential oils are concentrate so a tiny amount only is needed in based product like oil or cream. I used essential oils in olive oil and sweet almond oil to moisturised my skin. Alhamdulillah, I love it. Masha Allah, I was amazed! I hardly scratch my skin. My skin smooth and tone. The marks on my skin slowly faded. Masha Allah, I was very impressed!
Consequently, I dislike the over oily looked on my skin. I have done hours of researched on making natural cream and lotion from scratch and attended its workshop. Since then I make my own personal skin care products for my family and friends as a hobby.
Alhamdulillah, now I hardly get sinus and my skin is excellence!
