Sage Advise about Coconut Oil

Centrifuge separated coconut oil, made from fresh, virgin coconut milk , is a highly nutritious food and topical skincare product. However, it is a saturated fat with high caloric value. Overweight people and those who modify their fat consumption for a variety of reasons, should use it in moderation. Low to moderate consumption of 1-2 tablespoons daily is acceptable for most folks and can help burn an extra 5% of calories ingested. More is not necessarily better. Alzheimer's and epileptic sufferers can benefit from larger doses, but may need to adjust their diet to with more bulk to avoid constipation. Those with an allergy to tree nuts are cautioned to use coconut products sparingly.

As a light moisturizer and skin softener, coconut oil can be enjoyed by those who are not acne prone, or do not have very dry skin. Coconut oil can clog pores and doesn't help those with very dry skin. Marula oil is better for these symptoms as a topical product. I import organic Marula oil from the first year's harvest for special moisturizing effects. I also hand prepare a Rose Oil Masque that benefits all types of skin. Rose Gardenia moisture cream is a light day/night blend of vitamins and amino acids that regenerate healthy skin.

Coconut oil can also benefit the hair. Once a week moisturizing or less often can soften dry hair without clogging the scalp or hair follicles. Rinse thoroughly after allowing the coconut oil to penetrate and soften the hair.

Moderation in using super foods allows the body a way to use it's individual self healing resources and harmonize the benefit of all nutrition and natural skincare.

Lemon Rose Clarifier clears acne

Lemon Rose Clarifier reduces complex conditions leading to acne.Ninety percent of civilized people develop acne during their lifetime. Recent research suggests Propionibacterium acnes initiates inflammation of the skin. This  results in excessive oil production and large mounts of dead skin and/or cysts. Although many conditions exist with acne, the primary target is to reduce inflammation and oil reduction of the skin. Lemon Rose Clarifier reduces several strains of P. acnes and oil production simultaneously to prevent and heal acne.

Lemon Rose Clarifier is misted on the affected skin morning and evening after thorough cleansing. Always avoid the eyes. Lavender silk and satin body and shower cleanser can be successfully used for deep pore cleaning. And, for added protection and regeneration, Rose oil SkinTherapy may also be misted on the skin at bedtime.

It's simple, easy and effective. Clients enjoy results within days , continuing for weeks. Cancer patients using chemotherapy agents causing acne also enjoy good results using Lemon Rose Clarifier.I have used these products therapeutically for over 30 years successfully. No adverse side effects have been reported. However, it is best to test a patch of skin with product to assure there is no sensitivity. The plants are grown organically and processed from my gardens without chemicals.

The Medicinal Rose - Blog 21

The Medicinal Rose - Blog 21

 

Roses have been successfully used in healing for many centuries. Rose oil has a harmonizing effect on the psyche and immune system. It balances the emotions and regulates immune response. If the emotional nature is oversensitive or non responsive, rose oil brings into balance. The immune response can also be overactive, or autoimmune, and /or under reactive, leading to poor resistance and viral or bacterial invasion. Rose oil acts as a relaxing tonic, reducing infection and viral complaints.

            Rose is known to reduce or heal an outbreak of shingles in days. A pure rose oil or absolute is applied topically to shingles twice daily undiluted. The aroma will also reduce tension caused by pain.

            I use rose oil in over 22 blends in private practice and as complimentary therapy in hospitals. The blends reduce nausea, anxiety, depression, and pain, as well as keeping maternity patients balanced and happy as they await a joyous arrival. Rose oil blends well with any essential oils without overpowering a blend. I used rose oil to anoint my mother as she passed to the other side. As a room spray, rose oil kept all of us calm and patient Rose oil blends helped alleviate grief and depression as I continued without her.

            Women appreciate rose oil as a hormone regulator. It alleviates occasional depression, mood swings, angry outburst, and the bloated feeling associated with the menstrual cycle. Rose naturally strengthens the uterus to prepare women for pregnancy.

The aromatic properties of rose oil soothes the nerves, reducing anxiety and depression, increases endorphins, enhancing happy moods and has been used to mend broken hearts.  Rose oil also stimulates dopamine, known to be deficient in Parkinson’s disease.  It stimulates energy and helps reduce the severity of menopausal, PMS and female complaints.

75 yr old skin care testimonial

I'm 75 years old and nobody could guess my age. This is because I use your skincare every day.
