I love discovering natural products. Especially during my pregnancy time, I kept using those products which were totally safe for my skin as well as for my babies. During the third trimester of my pregnancy I started to get those #NotSoPleasing stretch marks which tend to bother me. I searched for several solutions online – Most of the products suggested by experts either had mineral oil as an ingredient or weren’t suitable to be used during pregnancy time. That’s when I discovered this Indian house hold brand – Wild Organic Home.
Wild Organic Home products are nothing fancy – Simple packaging using some of the powerful Indian Ayurvedic Ingredients. Now, that’s amazing right. I remember bathing using turmeric and milk ubtan during my childhood days. Those times were truly magical and a whole lot of fun with grandma grinding and making raw turmeric paste or dried turmeric powder and mixing it with several ingredients to make ubtans and medicinal pastes that worked wonders on the body. These days, anything and everything that claims to be natural is not so. They come with no ingredient list or partial list that can’t be trusted at all. I discovered Wild Organic Home at a time when I had totally gave up on ‘natural’ claiming products. But, Somehow the minimal ingredient list and great reviews made me wanted to try them. It was during that time the lovely Founder, Evangelist contacted me to gift me few products from her product range.
As I mentioned these products in the post are #gifted to me. But, my opinion is strongly my own experience of using the products. Before I start my review, Let me also remind you that natural ingredients – might not suit everyone. some of you might be allergic to certain ingredients. So, it’s always good to patch test and wait for 24 hours to see how your skin reacts to the product.
I got sent four products from their range
- Curcumin + Sesame Skin Lightening Oil
- Rosemary & Lavender Lipbalm & Lipscrub
- Coffee Beans & Vanilla Beans Face Pack
Curcumin + Sesame Skin Lightening Oil
Though the product title says skin lightening oil – My whole intention of using this oil was to lighten my stretch marks and I am not in favor of any products that claim to change your actual skin color. Every color is beautiful. Like I said earlier, I was ready to explore any natural oil to reduce my pregnancy stretch marks and few marks that I have on my leg area which is a result of ingrown hairs. I was in search of products with fewer ingredients and something which I’d use throughout my pregnancy.
Turmeric root has been used since thousands of years ago and is highly valued for its powerful antioxidant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. In Ayurveda, this golden spice is referred to an all purpose cleaner because it purifies the body internally and externally. Sesame oil is rich in antioxidants and is easily absorbed in the skin.
Curcumin + Sesame Skin Lightening Oil has a bright yellow medium consistency. I religiously applied it before bath everyday. Be sure to be in your wash clothes while applying this oil. This oil may stain yellow due to ingredients such as Turmeric hence suitable precautions must be taken while using. You can use it as a face as well as a body oil. As I have a sensitive skin, I didn’t apply it on my face. I used it only for my body. used it everyday and washed off using Ashtapathy devathali soap. It has a pure curcumin powder + sesame oil fragrance. It’s not very pleasing for everyone. Like I mentioned earlier smell didn’t bother me much and I was ready to use this considering its efficacy and super ingredients
It is great to see a good improvement on the scars on my body. It almost got rid of my in grown hair marks on legs. And my pregnancy stretch marks seems to be fading fast too, Let’s be real – nothing can completely reduce the pregnancy stretch marks. However, you can lighten the scars and improve the elasticity of the area thereby nourishing and hydrating the area.
You can start using this oil in your 5th or 6th month and that way it treats skin better. I feel if used from the start, It’d improve the overall skin elasticity during pregnancy time where the skin tend to stretch so much.
Curcumin & hydrating Sesame Oil combination helps repair skin, reduce uneven skin tone (If you have a normal skin – You can use it on face and give it a good massage and wash off using a ubtan or mild cleanser); If you are looking for a 100% natural skin brightening massage oil with minimal ingredients for lightening marks, treating pigmentation, blemishes, dark spots, uneven skin tone and preventing early skin ageing – this oil is perfect for you. curcumin – a powerful antioxidant for skin brightening and repairing is comined with moisturising Sesame Oil which is the hydrating and nourishing base. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a natural body and face oil to reduce scars !!

The calming lavender and rosemary fragrance is a big plus for me.
Coffee Beans & Vanilla Beans Face Pack
I love to pamper my skin using natural face packs. You may mix one teaspoon of this mask along with water (Normal Skin) [Oily skin – Rice Water & Dry Skin – milk] to make a paste.
Mix and make the paste as per your skin type paste and apply it on already cleansed face. Apply the face mask and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes or until dried. Rinse it off with cold water while massaging gently for 1-2 minutes to exfoliate any dead skin cells from the face. Repeat it for 2-3 times in a week. The mixture of coffee and vanilla will leave your skin clear from impurities and dead skin cells and makes skin soft and smooth. It will also calm your skin’s redness and reduce inflammation of the skin. You can also apply it as an eye mask for puffy eyes.
