What Does Yarrow|Pom Body Renewal Serum Do?

Yarrow Pom Body Renewal Serum is designed to keep your skin looking young and healthy. It moisturizes and nourishes, keeping your skin smooth, firm, and glowing. The serum features the Yarrow Pom oil you already know and love, but it also includes several other oils and extracts selected to provide the ultimate luxurious natural skin care experience.

What Is in Yarrow|Pom Body Renewal Serum?

Yarrow|Pom is a blend of yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed pomegranate seed oil. Due to the chemical makeup of the oil, Yarrow|Pom is useful for promoting cellular, immune, and nervous system health.* Yarrow|Pom comes in the form of an oil, a serum, and an internal gel cap. When taken internally, Yarrow|Pom oil can help to provide the body with useful antioxidants, promote healthy metabolism, and restore youthful vitality.

The serum, which is part of this month’s giveaway, is helpful for cellular healing. I have personally used this product to assist with dry skin, bruises, neuropathy, skin tears, and healthy healing. For myself, I use the Yarrow|Pom in the morning and evening on my hands, feet, and entire body to replenish moisture and support the neuropathways throughout my body. Many of my customers have had amazing success with healing scars by adding in Yarrow|Pom.  

Packed with powerful bioactive compounds and skin-protecting proteins, the Yarrow|Pom Body Renewal Serum contains Yarrow|Pom oil (Yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate Seed oil), Roman Chamomile, Peppermint, Yuzu, and Cananga essential oils. It also includes Avocado, Jojoba seed, Sunflower, Grape, and Argan Kernel oils; Coffee seed extract; and Pomegranate esters.

Cold-pressed Pomegranate Seed oil helps prevent the breakdown of skin proteins that occurs with aging. Pomegranate esters help give your skin a luminous glow and youthful-looking firmness.

Yarrow essential oil helps promote younger-looking skin, and Peppermint essential oil provides a cooling effect. Meanwhile, Roman Chamomile, Yuzu, and Cananga essential oils soothe the skin and promote a relaxed mood.

Avocado, Jojoba, Sunflower, Grape Seed, and Argan Kernel oils all provide deep moisturizing benefits. Avocado oil specifically helps prevent water loss through the skin, increasing hydration to help prevent the normal signs of aging. Coffee Seed Extract improves skin texture and helps smooth and rejuvenate the skin.

Application and Use

One of the best things about this product is its application. Simply mist it over your entire body after bathing or anytime for an uplifting boost of long-lasting hydration. The fine mist spray makes it easy to apply evenly on the skin and it takes less time to apply than traditional lotions or oils. This product is for external use only. Be sure to avoid contact with your eyes. It is not recommended to use the Spa Hydrating Body Mist before experiencing extended UV exposure. Also, surfaces may be slippery after use so be sure to give it time to soak into your skin.
