Our intention with our products was to inspire healing in everyone who uses it. From the package design, to the ingredients we use, to the intention and process how we make our products, our hope is that the love and care we put into our products will transpire on to you. We use principles of Ayurveda in order to enhance the healing properties of our products.
Ayurvedic medicine began in India and combines the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge), which means “the science of life.”
Ayurveda is a traditional Indian system of medicine, with the purpose to preserve health and wellness by keeping the mind, body, and spirit in balance and preventing disease rather than treating it. According to Ayurvedic principles, we have we have the ability to heal ourselves. The modalities used are meant to enhance our bodies natural healing abilities by addressing the root cause of the problem.the modalities are a healthy nutrition, daily movement and herbal remedies.
One of the herbal remedies central to Ayurvedic healing methods is Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera).
Ashwagandha is a small woody plant native to India and North Africa and is a powerful adaptogen, a remedy that helps the body get back into balance and cope with stress and reduce inflammation. Based on research done so far, Ashwagandha is safe with no known side effects, therefore we use it in all our products aimed for children as well.
Another powerful Ayurvedic remedy that we use is virgin organic sesame oil. It is the base for all of our balms. Why sesame oil?
Sesame oil is one of history’s most widely and commonly used products for overall health and wellness. In Ayurveda, its benefits and versatility have earned it the nickname “the king of oils.” Various Ayurvedic regimens tout the benefits of sesame oil, especially for use in abhyanga (self-massage).
It has calming, nourishing and warming effect. Unlike other oils that leave a greasy, oily residue, sesame oil is absorbed into the skin very well. The sesame seed grows in a dry climate, and based on Ayurvedic principles, the sesame seed oil is most beneficial when the dry quality is in excess.
To further enhance the Ayurvedic healing quality of our balms we use several other medicinal herbs that best support the healing capacity of the skin.
For the Mother's Healing Balm, we worked with an herbalist and chose herbs that heal the deepest layers of skin and help reduce inflammation, dryness and itching. One of these medicinal herbs is witch hazel, which has been used for centuries to alleviate itching and having a powerful stringent effect.
Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) is an effective emollient, seals the skeen and helps the skin stay hydrated and nourished for a long period of time. According to naturopath John Lust (the nephew of naturopathic pioneer Benedict Lust), "Althea's particular excellence is in soothing irritated tissues."
Calendula (Calendula officinalis) also known as Marigold is a yellow flowered plant widely used in Europe in skin products for centuries
Calendula is primarily known as a healing plant because of its soothing abilities. Although a gentle herb, the healing effects derived from Calendula is beneficial wound healing, insect bites, bruises, blisters, cuts, and all sorts of inflammatory skin conditions. It is a very gentle herb excellent for sensitive skin to alleviate dry, itchy skin.
Finally to bring it all together we use healing intention. It is an innovative revolutionary process we use to resonate our product with healing sounds. Sound healing is an ancient healing modality.
For centuries, from ancient Greeks to Native American medicine men, shamans etc., sound has been used in various healing practices. The first known culture to heal with sound is the Aboriginal people of Australia with a wind instrument called “didgeridoo”. In Chinese Qigong (or Qi Gong), specific mantras, chants and sounds are used to stimulate specific organ systems in the body. Tibetans were also well-known for the use of their healing singing bowls that resonate at the frequency of different chakras in the body.
Everything in our universe is information and energy vibrating at specific frequencies. Sound is a powerful tool to guide consciousness into higher realms and induce healing.
The Solfeggio frequencies constitute the ancient six note scale which is believed to have been used in sacred music, and reputed to be the original frequencies in Gregorian chants.
Based on the six pure tonal notes, these spiritual Gregorian chants and their special tones penetrate deep into the conscious and subconscious mind and usually draw strong emotional reactions. We resonate our products with healing frequencies to bring about the ingredients healing capacity and their enhanced effect combined together.
This way we are able to create a truly healing product with the intention to heal and regenerate the skin.
