NOW Essential Oils – Heal Yourself Through Aromatherapy

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Aromatherapy, Digestive Health, Energy, Hot products, Inflammation, Migranes, Nail Fungas, NOW Essential Oils, Pain, Skin Care, Stress

EO-Purity-5Essential Oils are a staple in my household.  Sometimes we always think about supplements for healing and we forget the power of essential oils!  Hope you enjoy the post…

Some interesting facts and history of essential Oils:

 

  • žHealing practices dating back to 4000BC
  • The early 1900’s, significant period in the development of essential oils and their therapeutic applications.
  • Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, French chemist and perfumer, coined the phrase “Aromatherapy” in his first book:
    • Aromatherapie: Les Huiles Essentialles Hormaones Vegetales, was translated into English.
    • “Father of Aromatherapy”.

Maintaining consistent quality in natural products like NOW® Solutions Essential Oils is a complex process, especially as supply changes from season to season.

So how does NOW Solutions consistently assure the identity and purity of our essential oils? We utilize state-of-the-art testing and analysis as well as numerous checks and balances, including:

  • Identity and purity testing
  • Use of The Essential Oils compendium by Ernest Guenther, Ph.D. and Fenaroli’s Handbook of Flavor Ingredients, edited by George A. Burdock, Ph.D., to verify the correct essential oil species
  • Supplier/grower track record of providing high quality materials
  • Aroma comparisons
  • Review of essential oil processing to ensure that appropriate extraction methods are used
  • Appropriate cautionary and regulatory language

Because identity and purity are key attributes of any essential oil, testing for these attributes is the best way to ensure an oil’s quality.

Blending Essential Oils:

  • Use 1 oz./30ml of a skin care oil: 7-30 drops of essential oils
    • Fill 1 oz. bottle ½ way with a carrier oil then follow recipes drop ratio, and fill to top – this can be doubled
    • Do not exceed 30 drops per 1 oz.
  • Recipe ideas visit www.nowfoods.com/nowsolutions
  • Three groups
    • Top notes; highly volatile, evaporate quickly
    • Middle notes; stimulate main body systems
    • Bass/Base notes; evaporate slowly, calming

Want to Learn More?

NOW Solutions identity and purity testing program uses four individual tests. To explore each test in more detail and to learn the designation between Food Grade and Therapeutic Grade oils, CLICK HERE.

Most Alive, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus stores carry the majority of the Essential Oils, and if we do not have the specific one we will get it for you!

Nature’s Aid – One Product so many Uses!

Categories: Hot products, Kids Health, Skin Care

What is Nature’s Aid?

Nature’s Aid is the perfect soothing gel for the effective treatment of all skin issues. It is synergistically blended to create an extremely effective, one product…so many uses formula. What makes Nature’s Aid unique is the orchestra of actions that arises from the interplay of the all-natural ingredients: Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Witch Hazel, Rosemary and Tea Tree.

Nature’s Aid skin gel has powerful properties to defend skin against the free radicals that promote aging. It restores elasticity, fortifies epidermal layers, fights infections and regulates skin oils. This special blend promotes circulations and increases the rate of collagen production, improving skin tone while hydrating the skin.

This amazing gel has the ability to quickly penetrate all layers of the skin, extending to the underlying muscle tissue, making it effective in relieving pain due to injury and arthritic joints.

Nature’s Aid is in a league of its own!

Never greasy, fast-absorbing formula!

  • Promotes healing
  • Speeds cell regeneration
  • Soothes swelling and itch from insect bites
  • Relieves pain and swelling
  • Stops minor external bleeding
  • Prevents the spread of infection
  • Stimulates hair growth
  • Regulates oil secretions
  • Kills acne bacteria
  • Treats fibromyalgia
  • Minimizes fine lines
  • Increases collagen production
  • Dissolves puss and cleans wounds without damage to tissue
  • Stimulates the growth of new tissue

Testimonial:

I am one of those people that is prone to getting yeast infections. I sometimes have to apply a treatment from the pharmacy more than once to clear it up. Since finding Nature’s Aid, I can happily say that I know longer need to buy these treatments. How it works, I don’t know, but now I use Nature’s Aid to clear this problem. I simply apply an amount to a pantyliner and re-apply a few times a day. I do this for 2, maybe 3 days. This clears it completely up. I actually do not seem to have the yeast infections occur as often as they use to. This stuff is simply amazing!

Here are some other uses that I have for it:

  • Bug Repellent (Mosquitos and Blackflies don’t seem to like it)

  • Takes redness out of any acne

  • Apply to my face every evening – has evened out my skin tone and
    diminished wrinkles

  • Damaged Hair – Once in awhile, I apply Nature’s Aid to my damp hair
     after I shower – it completely absorbs and leaves my hair shiny and reduces  dryness and frizziness.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your wonderful product!
A Very Satisfied Customer

Clear 60 Gel Testimonial (Alive Health Centre)

Categories: Eczema, Skin Care

Testimonial on Clear 60 Gel   I just want to write to you guys for inventing this fabulous product!  I have been suffering from this dry patch of what I believe is to be Clear_ULTRA_Gel-8262eczema on my hand for about 2 years now and It comes and goes.  I have tried everything from natural products to steroids and to no avail.  I stumbled across the Clear 60 Ultra Gel about 3 weeks ago and at first I was skeptical about it but I purchased it anyways because I was desperate.  Also, the catalogue that came with it seemed pretty promising.  I applied it twice daily and for the first 4 days, there wasn’t much improvement besides that the patch was a bit more moistened but the redness was still there.  However, I applied it religiously for about one week and the results blew me away!  I really regretted not taking a before and after photo of the area because I truly thought that it was another gimmick product.. It has been exactly 3 weeks now and I can say that my condition has been cured! I could not ask for a better product. Thank you so much for inventing this.  I just wished that I have discovered this 2 years back instead of wasting money on things that did not help at all. Maggie

Thank you Maggie for sharing this testimonial with us at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus.

Maggie purchased the product at one of the Alive stores.

Dr. Oz: ANTIOXIDANT for Younger Looking Skinimages

Dr. Oz & PINA LoGIUDICE, ND recommend to tuck and lift your sagging skin without surgery!  HOW? By taking the AMAZING antioxidant pycnogenol as it tells cells to DOUBLE their antioxidant powerDr. Oz demonstrated that your skin cells need Pycnogenol to make cells behave like a healthy sponge ready to soak up water, thus plumping up the skin while smoothing out lines.  Human skin mirrors your state of health and nutritional status. Over time, skin shows signs of aging due to the gradual breakdown of collagen and elastin. However, skin can be REBUILT and made healthier no matter your age.  HOW? Hyaluronic acid (H.A) is the primary agent made in our bodies that keeps skin tight and wrinkle-free by retaining the moisture in your skin. Pycnogenol, which is derived from pine bark, contains incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers AND has been shown to boost the enzyme that generates (H.A) by an incredible 44% in just 12 weeks!!!  For BEST results take with Alive (H.A).

1014Testimonial: “”This is from me Shannon Chung and I am the writter for the Alive Health Blog, I wanted to share my experience with this product.  This winter in particular, my skin has become beyond dry.  I have been keeping hyrdated, I have been taking fish oil, eating well and basically taking care of myself.  BUT my skin was telling a different story.  One thing Alice Chung (the owner of Alive Health Centre and Chains) ALWAYS says:  “We often lie to ourselves because we want to believe that we are doing all the right things, BUT our body does not lie.”  If you have redness, break outs or eczema these are ALL signs of inflammation and that your body is hot and upset.  My skin was not as severe as the  Ultra Gel photo above, but I had redness, itchiness, tiny little bumps all over my face but particularly on my forehead and on my hands.  I couldn’t tell if it was eczema breaking out on my hands, or an allergy.  Basically my skin became extremely sensitive and dry.  SO I made sure I stayed away from anything deep fried, I stayed away from shellfish as they can cause inflammation, I kept my regime simple using only an Organic mild milk cleanser and Clear 60 Intense Rejuvenate.  It is more for night time, but I used it in the morning, night and even throughout the day especially on the problem areas such as my hands and my forehead.  I noticed right away that my skin was soothed, there was no more itchiness or irritation.  The next day the bumps were coming down.  It has now been a week and the REDNESS is GONE the bumps are gone, my hands are almost 100% back to normal.  There are faint tiny scabs on my hands, but they are pretty well healed.  I am a very fare skinned Irish gal with sensitive skin, so the products I use have to be the best.  I LOVE this product and I love what the Ultra Gel has done for our customers.  I am excited to try the Clear 60 Ultra Firming.””
