Protect Yourself From Degenerative Aging with Essential Oils.
What can we do to reverse the aging process caused by stress from viral infections?
Stress is responsible for toxic free radicals that multiply and accumulate in our bodies.
Free radicals attach to our cells and break down cellular walls, this damages our DNA causing degenerative aging.
Viral infections cause extreme stress that is congruent with the aging process; due to the surge of toxic free radicals that attack our cells.
Adrenalin when released by the body under stress breaks down into activated metabolites that form a free radical called adrenochrome. This metabolic free radical breaks down our cell membranes and disrupt the basic electron transfer system of our cellular energy metabolism. The result of this breakdown is a leakage in the electron transport system which leads to another group of free radicals, the superoxide free radicals. These multiple groups of radicals cause the same dangers. Free radical oxidation damage accelerates aging and is a chronic, degenerating aging process that affects our entire system. This damage to the process of the electron transfer system is a biochemical hazard caused by all types of stress on our system.
How can we change this natural course of degenerative aging?
It involves aligning ourselves with the natural laws of holistic health, the body, mind, and spirit. This allows the life force to transmute us. This life force is God's energy. It is the ultimate food and meditation is the ultimate process. In yoga, it is known as the prana, in new age, it is known as cosmic energy, in Christianity it is known as God’s grace. The underlying truth in front of all three of these practices is unconditional love.
Every good and perfect gift comes down from above and comes down from the Father of Lights. Gods' energy resurrects our life; it brings new vigor and restores the body. God is light and energy. Two elements that hold the same key and are necessary for the growth and protection of all living things. We know we can absorb God’s colorful lights and energy, which is why meditation is so valuable. We know plants also absorb light and energy and create colorful flowers because of energy and the natural colors of light, God’s life force.
There are no mistakes in Creation. Essential Oils contain the energy from light, in electrolytes and the colors are the metabolites which are strong antioxidants. The role of plant metabolites, antioxidants, in life's basic function is cell division and new growth, respiration, reproduction, and storage. Antioxidants reverse the damaging effects of free radicals. The electrolytes in essential oils transfer the antioxidants to the cellular levels of our system through inhalation and to the skin for topical application. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals. Antioxidant molecules can lose free radicals without forming chain reactions. Antioxidants react easily with oxygen and protect the other neighboring cells. They quench free radicals and promote healthy cells.
Do you make time to stop and smell a flower growing in your garden, a bouquet of flowers for your home, or walking through a meadow full of wildflowers and enjoy the aromatherapy, which is pure essential oils? These are three different roles of meditation. The main action is to stop, take some time for yourself, reflect, admire creation and the Creator. Allow the life force to penetrate your being. Admire and talk to Him, his beauty, his love will transcend peace. Adore, gratitude.
When you smell the flowers or essential oils, they become effective through inhalation or topical application, they are believed to enhance physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Meditation is congruent with essential oils as much as relaxation to anti-aging.
One of the roles of antioxidants in essential oils is to neutralize free radicals. The antioxidant molecules can lose electrons without forming a chain reaction.

Are you Managing your Stress level or is it Managing You?
How can I Maintain a Healthy Equilibrium?
These are the key factors we hear a lot about in this era.
Proper diet with enough healthy fat, fiber, and probiotics
Enough sleep and relaxation
Stress management is copasetic with deep sleep and relaxation. There are a few essential oils that invoke the calm before the storm during high-stress levels.
Stress Management with Essential Oils
How do they Work?
Essential oils have a chemical structure that is found in human blood cells, skin cells, and tissue. Their lipid-soluble structure is compatible with human protein and enables them to be readily identified and accepted by the body. The unique ability of the essential oil's lipid-soluble structure is to penetrate the membrane of the skin and diffuse into our cells. This is part of the affinity plants have with people.
Essential oils and human blood share several common properties. They fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds, and initiate regeneration. Working as the chemical defense mechanism of the plant, essential oils possess potent antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Using the right essential oils in your home, in a diffuser, bath, and your skincare products offers this same protection to you as they do for plants. The natural affinity plants have for people is to bring back balance and protect you from illness, fatigue, stress, emotional disorders and instill harmony, peace, calm, joy, and beauty.
Stress may cause disease and release more cortisol and other stress hormones which shift our balance emotionally, as well as physiologically. The endocrine system becomes impaired, cannot produce the hormones we need to function daily, our ability to fall asleep or sleep deeply leads to more stress, it shifts our moods in a downward spiral, and changes the delicate balance of our digestive system, this triggers back to the brain and the cycle continues wreaking more inflammation and causing disease.
A few simple changes to your lifestyle may help reduce stress. A love and appreciation of plants, herbs, and essential oils naturally calm the soul. Cooking with fresh herbs and good spices, walking through the garden, flower bouquets in the middle of the winter, herbal tea, and pure essential oils for the atmosphere in your home, environment, and body.
Do you diffuse, have a humidifier, a wood stove with a pot of water on top of it? Essential oils vaporize very well. For stress or an environment where someone is sick my recommendations are Frankincense Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, and Lemon Essential Oil. These essential oils purify the atmosphere delivering a peaceful state of mind.
Place three drops each of Lemon EO, Lavender EO, and Frankincense EO into a diffuser, humidifier, or pot of hot water. They are gentle oils; your pets can smell and enjoy their calming effects as well.
A complete bouquet that sends the clearing vapor of Lemon citrus to cleanse the air and your Ol-factory system, so that lavender's floral aromas can diffuse a calm that defies all others, and frankincense's sweet, spicy, woody aroma will draw you closer to a peaceful state of mind.
Harmonizing Essential Oils and Balancing Herbs
Herbs and Essential Oils are two abundant natural resources we can use on a daily basis for a practical holistic approach to stress and a healthy lifestyle. Balance and Harmony will strengthen our inner man with a profound peace nobody can take away.
Lemon Essential Oil is anti-infectious, antiviral, and antibacterial against spores in the air. A first responder for your home if people are sick. Lemon improves microcirculation; it works deeply and efficiently as a germ buster.
I believe it is safe to say there are many herbs and essential oils that are adaptogens and will alleviate stress and illness. You can apply herbs to the skin in a bath, poultice, or in an infused oil. Essential oil is best applied to the skin or diffused for the Ol-factory system to be used as aromatherapy. Whole plants for whole people are beneficial in both herbs and essential oils, as whole plants contain minute amounts of essential oils that are safe to digest as a spice, tea, or in a salad.
Just thinking about the gift of abundance whole plants offer as a resource instills an aura of joy. Herbs and essential oils nurture my soul in a peaceful mannerism. I hope you have the same insightful pleasures and enjoy nature's bounty for your holistic lifestyle and natural skincare.

Rosemary Warms Your Skin Through the Circulatory System.

An unwelcome invasion that leads to no good at all.
Rosemary is an Herbal Stimulant. It nurtures cold-depressed tissue states with cold extremities, cold skin, and noticeably pale features in the face and skin. Cold depressed tissues may cause low blood, a condition of poor circulation, the blood settles in the feet. When the circulatory system loses heat its diffusion becomes incomplete causing stagnation and congestion in the feet. Blood corpuscles start to rupture causing black and blue marks around the ankles, blue veins begin to surface leading to varicose veins.
The warmth from the Rosemary circulates blood from the head to the feet, in between the bones warming the periphery so the blood can travel back up from the feet to the head. A complete cycle of the circulatory system eliminates low blood in the feet by driving more oxygen through the extremities of the body. The body must maintain its warmth to run smoothly.

5 Signs Sleep Deprivation Effects Have on Your Skin
January 28, 2020 Anna Sangemino
Lack of Sleep lowers New Cell Count on a Daily Basis.
Sleep Deprivation is Affected By: Artificial Light, Blue Light from Computers, Television, LED Lights, and Mobile Phones. Make sure your bedroom is dark when you go to sleep.
Sleep disturbances are affected by eating and drinking late into the night, waking to use the bath room and turning on the light disturbs your circadian rhythm preventing you from falling back into a deep sleep.
Lack of sleep effects the NREM and the REM sleep.
NREM is a non-rapid eye movement and no dreams.
REMsleep is very deep, your eyes and muscles make many small movements. It is the dream state.
Adults need 8 hours of sleep a night and children need 11 to live healthy, play and work at an optimal level.
The negative biological affect from the prolonged lack of sleep has detrimental health effects on your skin cells. It begins neurologically and depletes the new cells the body makes daily. Lack of sleep diminishes the skins moisture levels causing dehydration and lowers the skins pH level. The unhealthy change in the skins PH triggers acne break outs and rutty skin in some people and degenerative pale and listless skin in others. The degenerative condition severely slows down the collagen growth rate. When collagen levels decrease your skin loses its supple tautness, leaving the skin loose and flabby, dehydrated and dry. The skin texture changes to oily and rutty or dry flaky and crusty.
I clipped a paragraph of an in-depth scientific study on sleep deprivation.
” While disruption of sleep for a period shorter than one day appears to have little effect on the basal rate of cell proliferation, prolonged restriction or disruption of sleep may have cumulative effects that cause a major decrease in cell proliferation, cell survival and neurogenesis. Most methods of sleep deprivation that have been applied affect both NREM and REM sleep. Available data favor the hypothesis that decreases in cell proliferation are related to a reduction in REM sleep, whereas a reduction in the number of cells that subsequently develop into adult neurons may be related to a reduction of both NREM and REM sleep.”
We really need to support and nurture the proliferation of new skin cells with whole plant botanical extracts and revitalize collagen production for healthy beauty. Let’s take a look at some of the plants that I use for restoring collagen and moisturizing the skin.

Stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a protein the connects tissue to the bones and holds our body together. It gives our skin the resilience and suppleness we identify as healthy beauty. Regular use of Virgin Coconut oil reduces wrinkles. Collagen holds it all together and is responsible for the youthful appearance of the skin.
Healthy Beauty is achieved by nurturing the skin with hydration and moisture. Clear skin allows the skin to breathe while supporting the skins immune system defense.
Whole Plant Extracts are assimilated by the skin cells and all residuals are eliminated. There is no build up in our bodies from isolated constituents.

We value the task at hand more than the minor twitch and throb from over exertion. Before you know it, your joints are sore, and your muscles stiffen. Sound familiar?

My sister and I first discovered Creation Pharm products at their quaint shop in Charlevoix the Beautiful many years ago and have been using them ever since. The creams and lotions are so fresh, fragrant and soothing compared to the commercial brands on the market today. The Wild Yam cream can't be beat for skin repair and I use Anna's Secret Skin Repairing Serum on my face and hands. The bug repellent is the best! It's safe and actually works superbly against all kinds of insects. Anne has been so helpful in answering all of my skincare questions. Thank you for creating and sharing your wonderful products for people like me who want natural not chemical lotions on their skin.
