These oils were selected because of their skin benefits and their positive effect on mental wellbeing as they contain ingredients such as tryptophan, a precursor for serotonin.
Serotonin is a feel-good hormone and neurotransmitter which helps us deal with stress and feel calm and happy.
Omega 3 also reduces inflammation in the brain, which can cause mood shifts, headaches and more.
