Water is essential for the body to absorb oils into our skin because water locks in moisture and traps the oil thereby making it impossible for the oil to escape from the skin. And this act alone translates to better hydration and moisturizing of the skin. This is why we advise that you do the following to get the best out of your oils:
1. Apply oils on damp skin and allow your skin to dry naturally without toweling dry.
2. Add a few drops of oil to your bath water at the rinsing stage and allow your skin to dry naturally.
3. If your skin is already dry, add a little water to your palm and add a few drops of oil and apply on your skin.
4. Make an oil and water mist spray and spray on your skin when needed and allow to dry naturally.
5. Add oil to water-based lotions and apply to the skin.
VITAL INFO: Oils are vital for cell regeneration, healing, collagen production and skin health which is why oils are fantastic anti-aging agents and responsible for your skin’s suppleness. Oils are not bad unless they are heat-presses which means what you are putting on your skin is cholesterol-filled oil so always use cold-pressed oils. Combining oils with water won’t cause your skin to be greasy at all or cause you to sweat if you live in tropical regions. And bear this in mind: some oils are heavier and greasier than others so always ask an expert before you mix oils.

At Ene Naturals, youth and women development is our focus as a company because women are nation builders while the youth are the future of any nation. Women make more than half of Nigeria’s population as such when women are educated, the impact goes a long way to affect the nation. This is the reason why we have always offered free natural skincare trainings to women and the youth. Last week Friday on November 29th, 2019, we partnered with the Rotary club of Lagos (Isolo & Omole Gold) to offer our services pro bono to help train some youths.
Nigeria’s youth are curious, inquisitive and have a hunger and drive to learn and do things. This enthusiasm to achieve great things was what I felt and saw in the faces and actions of the youth that I was opportune to teach last week Friday at the Rotary Club youth and leadership training program known as RYLA. It was such a fantastic experience.
My journey on that day started at the Five Cowries terminal in Ikoyi where I boarded a ferry along with the vibrant and hardworking Rotary Club members who had sacrificed everything to make this event happen. I have utmost respect for all of them. That day was indeed the first time I would be boarding a ferry in Nigeria.
The hour-long trip took us across the water to the sea school at Apapa – a leadership training camp that was packed full of knowledge-seeking youths! It was so exciting to be there.
During the training session, I taught about creating natural skincare products and how to start such business. There was live exhibition on how natural body creams are made. The interactive session was exciting as well as the future entrepreneurs threw one question after another at me. In the end, they were motivated to venture into this form of entrepreneurship.
In the future, we are hoping to partner with more organizations to conduct training sessions as well as continue with our free online tutorials targeted at the youth and women. The last online session we had produced new entrepreneurs so we are eager to do more.
Would you like to partner with us? We are happy to offer our services pro bono. We offer both physical and online sessions.

We recently launched our new line of products – anti-wrinkle products made with snail secretion filtrate. My mother was the inspiration behind these products because for nearly three decades, I watched her spend so much money on anti-aging products made by international brands that I promised her years ago that I would create a totally organic line that would nourish her skin as well as fight wrinkles but at a fraction of the price that she spent. I guess she thought I was joking. But hey, that promise is now a reality and my mum was so excited and pleased with the results when she began using the products.
We made our anti-wrinkle products with snail secretion filtrate because of the many benefits it possesses. Snail secretion is nature’s gem. Full of minerals and nutrients to nourish the body, it rejuvenates our skin cells, healing our skin of scars, acne and blemishes; and most importantly, it moisturizes our skin to give us supple, soft skin that is free of wrinkles. This is nothing but sheer luxury.
Snail secretion contains the following nutrients:
Collagen, allantoin, elastin, glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, minerals (copper, potassium, iron, zinc), coenzymes, antioxidants, vitamins A,C,E, immunomodulators, which help to normalize the immune system and natural antibiotics.
If you haven’t tried any of these products, pls do so. Visit our online Store to place an order.
The rains are upon us so sneezing, stuffy nose, catarrh & cough are expected. To nip cold and flu symptoms in the bud before they become worse and unbearable, use any of our trio decongestants and air purifiers to prevent the symptoms from spreading.
Anti-viral disinfectant spray contains eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil and a host of anti-viral essential oils to combat cold and its symptoms. It also purifies the air. To use, spray around the room to purify and disinfect the air, spray into pillows and beddings to decongest your nose for a sound slip or spray into handkerchief to inhale on the go.
Eucalyptus and peppermint oil also serve the same purpose and can be applied on handkerchiefs to inhale or to drop into hot water and use for inhalation as you steam. Allergies are expected during this cold, rainy season so protect yourself and your loved ones. To order, please send us a DM.
Cold-pressed oils are oils that have been extracted at cool temperature in a screw-pressed process which protects the oil from rancidity, trans-fat or toxic chemicals. This process of extraction helps the oils to retain its nutrients, antioxidants, aroma, texture and all its natural qualities. This is why cold-pressed oils are the best for the skin because they provide the skin with the best nourishment. We advise against heat-pressed oil because of the external heat that is applied in the process of extraction. Because the oil loses vital natural qualities, you find that heat-pressed oils go rancid faster than cold-pressed oils. Compare cold-pressed coconut oil with heat-pressed coconut oil – they not only differ in colour but in aroma and quality as well. So to take better care of your skin, use only cold-pressed oils.
