Cucumber is a widely cultivated plant that originates from India, but it is now grown worldwide. It has a very long history, dating back to 3000 years ago – it’s considered one of the most ancient plants on earth.
Cool and calming, the cucumber essential oil is the mildest essential oil that can exist and, as such, it can be used for numerous purposes. An important source of antioxidants, cucumber essential oil is proven to have a lot of health benefits as well.
It is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, and potassium and acts as a powerful tonic to your skin, hair, and nails. It is very powerful when it comes to its cleansing effects, making it really popular among those with oily and acne-prone skin. Its anti-inflammatory ingredients will help your skin cool down, looking refreshed and rested.
As a plant consisting of 96% water, the cucumber is great for taking toxins out of the body. Even though it is among the most watery plants, it has a plethora of other ingredients that are beneficial to the human body – it contains omega-6 fatty acids, as well as vitamins B1 which are priceless when it comes to detoxifying the skin, retaining moisture, and preventing skin aging.
An interesting fact about cucumbers is that they come in many sizes, colors, and shapes. You may even come upon a cucumber in white, yellow, and orange! No matter which type you’ll choose, make sure to have one in the fridge, because, apart from slicing it in your salad, you can also use it as a cellulite-reducer! There is a phytochemical in the cucumber that makes the collagen in your skin tighten, firming up the outer skin layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite.
That’s not all: cucumbers can even spare you a hangover – eat a few cucumber slices before you go to bed and say “goodbye” to hangover as the cucumber ingredients will help your body retain its equilibrium and you’ll feel as fresh as a cucumber in the morning!
When it comes to perfumery, the cucumber note goes very well with fresh, green, watery, fruity, spicy, woody and oriental notes like lime, grapefruit, green apple, green tea, peppermint, seafoam, patchouli, pepper, musk, amber, tobacco, and sandalwood.
