This essential oil is also prized for its high Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) content and almost perfect  3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3, super moisturizers that soften and smooth the skin. This  oil easily penetrates layers of skin to moisturize and rejuvenate it. It also contains GLA's (Gamma Linoleic Acids), essential skin lipids that are much-needed to promote cell regeneration.  This process usually slows with age, so GLA's in this oil are definitely age-defying!

This is due in part to the fact that this miracle oil has practically no known side effects!  In addition, organic Hemp Seed Oil produces no ''high'' in humans because it does not contain the intoxicating compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Best Organic Essential Oils to Treat Psoriasis

The exact cause of Psoriasis is not yet known.  However, studies have shown stressful living or a bad shock to the system that causes the adrenocortical hormones of the adrenal system to be out of balance or "exhausted," are known to cause onset of Psoriasis symptoms.  This disorder is also known to genetically run in families. 
  Psoriasis is a common skin disorder that unfortunately affects many people.  It is characterized by dry, scaly patches, and the skin under the patches is red and often itchy.  It usually affects the scalp, knees, elbows and limbs, although a serious outbreak can cover a lot of skin on the body.  This is due in part to an over- production of the epithelial cells of the skin, and the build-up is apt to be sloughed off very quickly and expose the tender, unprotected newer layer of skin beneath.
If you suffer with Psoriasis, definitely learn to manage stress by exercising regularly, which is proven to drop stress to the body systems significantly.  In addition, practicing calming breathing exercises, meditation or any other relaxation methods you choose will reduce stress and the unpleasant symptoms of this disorder.   It should be noted, however, that relaxation by intake of alcohol is not recommended and actually worsens symptoms; it is best to avoid alcohol entirely if you have an outbreak.  Eating a healthy, whole food diet and drinking plenty of water are also essential to treating and healing this condition.

There are natural healing methods available that are quite effective in treating Psoriasis, and many involve the topical application of organic essential oils to disinfect, moisturize and heal the affected areas of the skin.  Favorite organic essential oils recommended for treatment include Lavender, which is a natural antimicrobial and disinfectant, is calming and nourishing to the skin and senses and so reduces overall stress; in addition, organic Evening Primrose, Calendula, Chamomile, Damascena Rose, Neroli, Bergamot, Rosemary, Cedar and Juniper essential oils, some of which we discuss below.

Organic Evening primrose- The "goldmine" of Omega Fatty Acids and an Omega-6 essential fatty acid, Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA) in this Organic essential oil are highly effective in moisturizing & soothing the skin and anti-inflammatory in nature.  They effectively reduce the unpleasant soreness, itching and redness of Psoriasis.  GLA has also actually been licensed in several countries for the treatment of many skin disorders.

Rosemary essential oil:  This organic oil is believed to be an actual remedy for Psoriasis.  It is also known to have skin toning properties and to reduce stress which will of course help reduce symptoms.

Damascena Rose essential oil:  This essential oil, known as one of Nature's Healing Powerhouses, actually contains over 300 naturally-occuring compounds which give it a myriad of natural healing properties.  One of these is it's ability to reduce inflammation and skin redness, which accounts for its calming qualities that result in effectively treating and healing Psoriasis.  This lovely oil also repairs broken capillaries and is even effective in treating eczema and other common skin disorders.  It is also used often in aromatherapy treatments for it's inhaled healing fragrant properties. In addition to smelling absolutely wonderful, it is also mildly astringent, has anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties.

In addition, Lavender, Rose Damascena and German Chamomile essential oils are all well known to aid in decreasing sympathetic nervous system activity.  They all have precious natural anti-inflammatory properties that are needed to treat any skin disease that is caused or exacerbated by inflammation. 

How to Use:  Any of the lovely organic essential oils listed above may be used to create the base of a treatment blend of oils to heal Psoriasis.  Just mix a few drops of the Evening Primrose Essential Oil, Lavender, Geranium, Rose Damascena,  or any of the above with an organic carrier oil, like organic Sweet Almond  or organic Olive Oil.  A 2 to 2.5% essential oil dilution (12-15 drops of essential oil(s) to 1 oz carrier oil) , applied daily to the affected area, has been shown to be highly beneficial.  Next, simply apply a drop or two of this mixture directly to the affected areas on the skin.  

many real, significant improvement in Psoriasis symptoms with regular, daily use of this type of essential oil mixture.  Treatment of Psoriasis with organic essential oils is a much healthier alternative than treating with chemical steroid creams and topical immunomodulators that may provide immediate relief, but in the long-term may actually worsen symptoms and cause other chronic health problems.

Organic Evening Primrose Oil- Powerful Benefits in Organic Skin Care

Essential Oil of Organic Evening Primrose is an incredibly healing plant that has a myriad of scientifically-proven healing benefits for all kinds of health complaints, ranging from PMS to HDAD in children and even rheumatoid arthritis.  This wonderful essential oil contains an Omega-6 essential fatty acid, Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA) that has also been licensed in several countries for the treatment of skin disorders! It is used in organic anti-aging products for treatment of dark circles, wrinkles and age spots, and is highly effective in improving acne skin blemishes and inflammation due to its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Treatment of Eczema:  In 1982, a prestigious medical journal reported the results of a double-blind crossover study in which 99 patients diagnosed with ectopic eczema, a sore, dry and always itchy rash on the skin, were given high doses of Organic Evening Primrose Oil, and 43% of them reported significant improvement in their symptoms!  A different Scottish study demonstrated that the oil is beneficial to nails that have become dry and brittle.  

Treatment of Psoriasis: This essential oil is anti-inflammatory in nature and increases the circulation.  When applied regularly to the psoriasis lesions, it reduces burning and itching. 

How to Use: Apply healing Evening Primrose Essential Oil directly to the affected areas on the skin and nails.  Just mix a few drops of the oil with a carrier oil, like almond or olive oil.  You should see significant improvement in these symptoms with regular, daily use.  After 3 or 4 months of regular use, it reduces itching, dryness and eczema peeling of the skin. Organic Evening Primrose essential Oil is an excellent alternative treatment to using steroid creams and topical immunomodulators. 

Treatment of Acne: Topical application of Evening Primrose Oil greatly reduces blackheads, pimples and inflammation caused by acne. This is because the oil decreases the amount of sebum in the pores of the skin, which prevents pores clogging and the inflammatory symptoms of acne.  This is largely possible due to the significant anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities also inherent in this essential oil.

Health Benefits of Organic Damascene Rose Essential Oil

Essential oil of Damascene Rose is one of nature's most incredibly healing plants.  This rose is, according to recent fossil evidence, about 35 million years old.  The genus Rosa has about 150 species found all around the world, including in northern Africa.  Damascene Rose, however, originated in Bulgaria, and is extensively cultivated there today for its precious essential oil.

Organic Damascene Rose essential oil has been recently scientifically proven to increase the energy vibration of every cell in the body, which restores balance and harmony.  The approximate weight of essential oil extracted from the flower petals is only about one three-thousandth to one six-thousandth of the weight of the flowers, i.e., approximately 2,000 flowers are required to produce one gram of oil.  This well illustrates the relative expense of this healing oil.

Essential oil of Damascene Rose is prized for its many natural beneficial properties, including anti-depressant, antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, bactericidal (kills Strep, Staph, E. Coli, Anthrax, and Diphtheria.)  The oil’s innate healing power actually is due to its complexity.  It contains more than 300 organic compounds, and so it is definitely one of the most complex organic phyto-chemicals on earth.  This is why the oil is often referred to as  Nature’s universal healer.  There are absolutely no natural limits in its ability to tone, heal and balance the skin.  It is non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing and well-tolerated by all skin types.  

The highly-energized, organic composition of essential oil of Damask Rose renders it highly effective in  treating aging, dry, and damaged skin.  It also tones the skin to reduce overly-active skin sebum secretion that can cause acne and enlarged pores.   Organic Damask Rose essential oil’s natural toning and astringent properties became well known in the 18th century and was used at that time as the base oil for many healing tonics.  Its unique skin toning abilities can actually produce a healthy and radiant complexion in just a few seconds.  This healing powerhouse also has properties that reduce inflammation and skin redness, repair broken capillaries and is even effective in treating eczema and other common skin disorders. 

As scientists continue their study of this rare and complex rose essential oil, they have found that it contains, as noted above, an incredible density of over 300 naturally-occuring compounds.  In addition, they found nearly every chemical compound found in Mendeleev’s periodic table! This myriad of organic healing  compounds attests to the many healing abilities of this essential oil.

As part of an organic, holistic healing approach to skin care, it is recommended that we "connect" with positively-charged energies as much as possible- in our diet, the air we breathe and in what we absorb into our bodies. Taking in as much good energy as possible is vital to maintaining our energy level and health.  It has also been scientifically proven in recent years that the higher the energy vibration level in the body, the healthier the skin and body become.  Incredibly, Organic Damask Rose Oil has been found to emanate the highest energy vibration of all known oils.  Stay tuned for More to Come in Part II of this Blog post!

How Do We Find Peace? We Choose It.

Creating peace in our lives is a decision.  Our need to control situations, people and things around us are roadblocks to being peaceful.  Our anxieties will leave us, if we choose to rely on Spirit to guide our lives.

Most of us have heard the expression, "Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?"  What we think is right may or may not be the best thing in any given situation.   If we are consumed with the need to be right, to the point of forcing a solution, chances are we are not at peace.  Recent studies have shown that it is much better for our overall health and well-being if we are able to make the choice for peace, rather than inner- or outer- struggle.

Having to have things our way causes a lot of stress, and we are the recipients of that stress.  Instead, we can be at peace every moment we breathe, if that is what we desire and choose.  We can be blessed with good health, emotional well-being and peace every time we remember that we can turn to a loving Spirit for guidance and support.

Simple Changes that Can Prevent Breast Cancer

We want to help everyone to boost to their natural, organic beauty, their innate  organic healing and to help you improve your overall health.  Please Share this Post with all you love and care about!

Most women are very concerned about breast cancer.  Most people know that October is traditionally "Breast Cancer Awareness Month," as well.  What they may not know, however, is that recent scientific findings can give them the information necessary to avoid breast cancer entirely, rather than to just be aware of it.  Below we have summarized some of these scientific findings specifically related to nutrition and breast cancer, as well as what you can do to avoid this potentially deadly disease:

·  Eat a diet rich in greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds- these all contain natural anti-cancer compounds. A vegetable-based diet rich in mushrooms, cruciferous vegetables and flax and chia seeds that contain phytochemicals with anti-estrogenic properties can help to fight Breast Cancer in particular. 

·  Stay slim- Obesity is a highly significant risk factor for Breast Cancer. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) estimates that 17% of breast cancers are due to excess weight alone, and women who are obese when diagnosed are more at risk to die from breast cancer.
·  Avoid junk food- like fast foods and refined foods such as white flour and sugary sweets. High-glycemic foods Frequent cause high insulin levels are thought to promote growth and division of cancerous cells, and so also  women with Diabetes are 20% more likely to develop Breast Cancer. 

·  Do not take Synthetic Folic Acid in supplements and vitamin-fortified refined foods. Synthetic folic acid is in fact associated with increased risk of Breast cancer.  Natural food folates are chemically different from synthetic folic acid, and are instead associated with decreased risk of developing this disease. 

·  Minimize your family’s exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs)- Synthetic chemicals that mimic, inhibit or alter the action of the body’s natural hormones. It's easy to come into contact with them daily in the form of plastics, organochlorine pesticides, cosmetics, fuels, and other chemicals. It is thought that EDC exposure contributes to risk of hormone-associated cancers.  They are especially problematic when exposure occurs pregnancy, childhood or puberty.

·  Do not eat mass factory-farmed meats or dairy and minimize animal foods in general- These foods come from animals that are regularly given antibiotics and growth-promoting hormones, and environmental pollutants also build up in their fatty tissues.  All animal protein (especially dairy) elevates blood levels of IGF-1, a hormone that has been associated with increased risk of several cancers, including Breast Cancer, according to many recently published studies. 

Even if you just try a few of these changes, you will be dramatically improving your chances of avoiding and preventing breast cancer.
