In Summer, the young energy that arose in Spring expands to its maximum potential. Summer holds the power of maturity: the buds of spring mature into full flowers and now are able to share their pollen to make more flowers.

Ancient Chinese believed that we should live in harmony with the natural cycles of our environment and recognise the naturally occurring ebb and flow of energy reflected in our bodies. De Mamiel Summer Facial Oil is blended to work in synergy with these changes and put back what nature takes out at a time when it is needed.

In Summer, the energy of Fire allows us to give and receive warmth. By giving and sharing, we build our own Fire, open our own flower, and bring more of the summer sun to the world. It is time to enjoy the fruit from the seeds we have planted and the visions and plans we have made. Only in the fullness of maturity do we have the inner abundance and self-sufficiency to truly share with others.

Summer supports you in enriching your enjoyment of life. It is an invitation to savour life.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Summer is represented by the heart, the motive power of blood circulation and the root of life. When there is ample heart ‘qi’, then the pulse beats normally and forcefully and the facial complexion is rosy with lustre.

De Mamiel Summer Facial Oil contains ingredients that will look after skin that is “in bloom” during the summer months. They will bring optimum levels of moisture to the skin, help protect it from overexposure to the sun or sensitivities brought on by the season with anti-inflammatory and regenerating properties, and boost your complexion to a rosy glow, giving your skin all it needs before the slowing down of autumn approaches.
