One little bottle, one ingredient, infinite ways to use it. One Drop Wonder, or #ODW, is cold-pressed Pomifera Oil extracted from a tiiiiny fruit seed found in Osage Oranges, AKA hedge balls (pictured above.) The seed within this wrinkly green ball is jam packed with super antioxidants, Omega-6 (great for retaining moisture in the skin,) and contains natural UV-protective properties. Studies have proven that this seed extract also contains potent anti-inflammatory, and useful anti fungal agents-making it an ideal botanical extract for skin and hair health. When used daily, this oil will reverse any damage done to your skin, restore moisture, and give you a gorgeous, healthy glow. For people who say “I hate oils” or “I can’t use oils because I have oily skin,” One Drop Wonder is not your average oil. It absorbs immediately, is lightweight, and can be used on the most sensitive of skin. Used alone, or as a booster (I will explain that in a minute,) this incredible oil produces immediate and mind blowing results. Here are 8 unexpected ways to incorporate One Drop Wonder into your beauty routine to reap all of the benefits of this magical oil.
Perfect and Protect
Glowing skin is notoriously on trend and sun damaged skin is notoriously not. Have the best of both worlds by adding a drop of One Drop Wonder to your foundation prior to application. Achieve perfectly sheer coverage and a dewy glow while naturally protecting your skin from the sun. What more could you ask for?!
Give me a Boost
Maximize the benefits of your skin care by adding a drop of One Drop Wonder. The reason this oil is so effective, is because it deeply penetrates skin cell and will take whatever product it is mixed with along for the ride! For example, to increase the anti-aging benefits of Sotoks, add a drop of One Drop Wonder. Add a drop to Skin Therapy or Dew Date to maximize hydration, or a drop to Forty Cure Creme to maximize healing. My personal favorite is to add a drop to Dream Clean cleanser before lathering to remove all of your makeup and excess dirt while hydrating and healing your skin. If you are more of a math person, Your Product + One Drop Wonder = Super Product. If you are a video game fan, One Drop Wonder is basically a “power up,” or little mushroom guy in Super Mario Brother’s to your skin. Does that make sense?
Apply a drop of One Drop Wonder to your nails to soften and moisturize cuticles, increase nail growth and strength, and treat, protect, and prevent your nails from fungal infections and hangnails.
Add a few drops to your bath and soak your way to soft and hydrated skin. When mixed with water, One Drop Wonder has the ability to soak even deeper into your tissues to rejuvenate your skin. A One Drop Wonder bath will help maintain the collagen in your skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Also, studies have shown that an oil bath can help women regain strength after birth and help your uterus to shrink back to its normal size much faster…hmm.
Remove it or Lose it
Add a drop (or 2 if you are removing a smokey eye) to a cotton pad to gently and naturally remove makeup. The oil breaks down water-resistant substances used in eyeshadow and mascara and gently releases them from your skin. Remove your makeup while leaving your skin softer and younger-looking and your lashes (and even eyebrows) hydrated and conditioned.
Dry lips are never cute, especially when you’re about to apply a matte lip. Hydrate and exfoliate away dry lips by adding a drop of One Drop Wonder into sugar or a tiny bit of an abrasive body scrub (such as Bamboo Renew) to create a lip exfoliant. Apply a layer of your mixture on to your lips, let settle for about a minute, and use one or two fingers in a circular motion of roll away dead skin cells and create smooth and hydrated lips. Maintain your super soft lips by adding One Drop Wonder to your favorite lip balm and applying daily.
Heal before you Peel
Summer has arrived and if you are like me, chances are you are going to get sunburned at least once. Quickly heal sunburns (or any burn) by applying One Drop Wonder directly to the burn or by mixing One Drop Wonder with Cool Balm. The aloe and cucumber in Cool Balm with sooth your burn while One Drop Wonder takes care of the rest.
Hair to the Throne
Add a drop to your favorite hair mask or leave in conditioner to heal dull, dry, or brittle hair. Leave the mask on for about 10-15 minutes (or however directed) and rinse out with lukewarm water. For extra dry or frizzy hair, add one drop to hair before styling to de-frizz, protect hair from sun damage (yes, your hair needs sun protection too,) and leave your hair shiny and soft.
