Healthy Skin Calls For Mega Therapy Cream Moisturizing

Share Button
Does your face ever feel like the Mojave Desert?
Mine sure does, especially in the winter!! Skin dryness and dehydration effects all of us, some more than others. It can be genetic, but most frequently it is caused by: poor diet, illness, stress-from our hectic life styles, climate changes and seasonal elements that surround us.
Winter skincare regimen needs to be handled differently than other times of the year because of the harsh drying elements of winter. Extremely dry skin can become inflamed which causes flaking, cracking, and painful conditions.¬†Our skin needs nourishment just like our body needs water & food. In the winter months I will often apply my facial cream,¬†“Lavender¬†Mega Therapy Cream“, more frequently to my face, neck and decollete’. This essentially “gives my face a drink” of nourishment that it needs to restore¬†moisture¬†balance, and ensuring a healthy youthful glow.¬†
Our Mega Therapy Cream is a rich emollient cream that will moisturize, soothe, and rejuvenate your delicate face skin. You will love how decadent, and silky it feels!!
I’m sure you’ve heard that our skin is the largest organ of our body, and it’s constantly open and exposed to the elements around us. Because of repeated exposure to harmful chemicals, from my career¬†as an Aesthetician & Cosmetologist for 26 years, I now have occupational dermatitis on my hands, and other sensitive areas on my face. I realized that I needed to protect my own skin better, and prevent it from coming into contact with damaging¬†chemical toxins, especially in cosmetics that are used on the delicate skin on my face. Whenever I use skincare products containing chemicals, I have eczema conditions that flair up. ¬†
About 16 years ago I began researching cosmetics products, and using only natural, nourishing, luxurious, and safe products on my face and body. The result of these years of research led me to creating our skin care line, and the most therapeutic item is our Lavender Mega Therapy Cream.

We use only natural, pure ingredients in our Lavender Mega Therapy Cream: Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel,¬†sweet almond oil, palm oil, vegetable glycerin, jojoba oil, gotu kola, Hood River Lavender¬†Essential Oils of Lavender, horsetail plant, geranium, comfrey root, dandelion, stearic acid, vitamin E, A, and B5. We use a combination of our Organic Lavandula Angustifolia oil, and Lavandin x-intermedia lavender essential oils in our Cream. When you open a jar of Mega Therapy Cream your senses will be delighted by¬†it’s lovely, fresh aroma of a field of lavender flowers!¬†
The beneficial properties of lavender are anti-tumoral, analgesic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, which are extremely healing, and prevent build up of sebum, a skin oil that bacteria feeds on. The French scientist Rene Gatefosse was the first to discover lavenders ability to promote tissue regeneration, when he burned his hand badly, and submerged it into a tub of lavender essential oil. ¬†He called lavender,¬†“nature‚Äôs burn medication and stress reliever”. ¬†
When you apply the cream on you face, the beneficial properties will aid in healing, soothing and balancing the pH of your skin! Other ingredients, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera Gel are both humectants which assists in attracting, retaining moisture, increasing the¬†ability for moisture to penetrate the skin. Humectants also increase the pliability and flexibility of the skin, preventing it from cracking, and balancing moisture, protecting sensitive skin, improving skin tone and texture. Your skin will love how it feels, and will drink it up!! It’s non greasy, non clogging, heavenly moisturizing cream that will assist in healing your dry skin conditions. Remember, don’t neglect the delicate skin for you decollete’, because it’s exposed to sun, wind and drying conditions also.

You are beautiful, and your face needs to feel beautiful, so apply your moisturizer freely, and generously as needed. Give your face the Mega nourishment that it needs to maintain the moisture balance and give it that healthy youthful glow. Keep you winter skincare regimen simple, but effective with our luxurious, all natural face cream, Mega Therapy Cream!
This is one of my favorite skincare products and it goes hand in hand with our Lavender Hydrosol (flower water), as a toner. I always spritz Lavender Hydrosol first, then follow up with my moisturizer, Mega Therapy Cream. My face feels radiant, refreshed and rejuvenated…ready to meet the day!!¬†

Warm It Up And Wrap It Around

Share Button

Our Lavender Neck Wrap is one of the first heat-able Wraps that I developed. It has become a very popular healing Wrap when heated, for soothing tired sore muscles,¬†stress and tension¬†of the neck, shoulders, and even the tummy. It can also be cooled in the freezer and used as a cold compression wrap, that feels wonderful placed around the top of the knee to relieve pain or inflammation. The Wrap will hold cold temperature or heat (flipping sides) long enough for a therapeutic application. It is bringing abundant relief to many happy customers! ūüôā

This year I discovered another wonderful use¬†for the Wrap! I had a sweet 90 year old neighbor that was experiencing a lot of inflammation and joint pain from Arthritis in her left hand , so I gave her¬†one of our Neck Wraps to help relieve her uncomfortable condition. I showed her how to heat it up and place it on her hand,¬†warming it, which in turn relieved her discomfort and pain. ūüôā She Loves her new soothing wrap!!

I love to hear customers tell me about the healing relief of our Lavender Neck Wrap. Relief of discomforting stress from tired aching muscles, and soothing comfort for cold hands, and ¬†knees experiencing joint pain. We give extra care and attention to every detail from sewing, and filling each Neck Wrap. It is filled with our Organic Lavender buds,¬†giving natural therapy from the relaxing aroma of Lavender, Flax Seed and Rice. The Wrap can be heated in the microwave for 30 seconds¬†intervals, offering the benefit of aroma and heat. ¬†It’s also small enough to take with you when you travel.

The next time you are experiencing aching muscles, pain, tension in the neck, and shoulders, or¬†are just feeling a bit under the weather with cold aching hands, get your Neck Wrap, “warm it up and wrap it around” yourself for soothing, healing aromatherapy! Sweet relief ūüôā

Natural Pet Care “Precious Pet Salve”

Share Button

We just dropped off an order of our newest product “Precious Pet Salve” at Gorge Dog in Hood River! We are very excited about this healing salve for our Precious Pets! It is All Natural and Pet safe!


This amazing product was formulated after many requests from our customers for a healing product for pets. Precious Pet Salve is very healing, and we have used this on our own dogs for everything from scrapes to a nasty neck wound from a wild coyote attack!¬†Our Jack Russell was attacked, during the day while he was¬†tethered in our front yard, next to his kennel… that’s¬†probably¬†what saved his life! Joe found him inside his kennel with a large wound on his neck, and we rushed him to the Vet. He received a shot of antibiotics,¬†and we¬†proceeded¬†to care for his wound, cleaning it daily with lavender essential oil, ¬†and applying our shea butter salve, and wrapping it in gaze & medical tape. He looked like a ninja dog ūüôā In 6-8 weeks his wound was healed.

Our Precious Pet Salve is formulated with unrefined Shea Butter, Mango Butter, and our Lavender Essential Oil¬†along with our Helichrysum Immortelle, and Clary Sage, and other powerful healing oils, and essential oils with¬†natural antiseptic, antibacterial,¬†anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory¬†properties.¬†It moisturizes and encourages¬†rapid healing, and stimulates cellular regeneration, increasing blood flow to wounds,¬†minor cuts, abrasions,¬†dry skin,¬†hot spots, eczema, dermatitis and burns, also helps¬†alleviate pain and itching.¬†Helps calm down anxious pets and hydrate the skin.¬†Precious Pet Salve is made in small batches, and is to be¬†used liberally on the affected areas. Store in a cool area,¬†as it will melt at hot temperatures. This amazing Salve has an earthy aroma from the lavender, Immortell, Clary Sage, Lemon, Cedarwood, Oakmoss etc., that helps¬†prevent further licking and biting of the irritated area on your Precious Pet ūüôā¬†Don’t let your pet suffer ….

 

This question was asked by one of our customers: “Can this salve be ingested by animals? Some will want to lick the salve when you spread it on their sore.”

Thanks for your email. Yes, it is pet safe if they lick it. If they ate the whole tin at one time it may loosen them up a bit, but just licking it when applied to the affected surface, should be fine.¬†This amazing Salve has an earthy aroma from the lavender essential oil and other essential oils that helps¬†prevent further licking and biting of the irritated area on your Precious Pet ūüôā¬† All natural butters and oils are used in our pet care formulas, but often products on the market will use other synthetic or¬†petroleum¬†carriers. You can warm the salve up in your palm to make it more liquid if that helps apply it to the animals skin. May your precious pets be healthy, we all LOVE them!

Healthy Relief With Lavender And Shea Butter

Wow, when you think you’ve tried it all to help¬†relieve extremely dry, cracked, damaged skin from the¬†elements of winter dryness,¬†wind, and sun …Then you are going to love these¬†skin-nourishing¬†balms and Body Butters to heal, soothe and¬†stimulate healthy tissue, providing much needed relief ¬†for your body, face, lips, and feet.

Today I’m blending a¬†batch of ¬†Lavender Balm, and our X-Treme Body Butter, ¬†made with 100% natural and Unrefined Shea Butter. It is naturally processed, not depleting any of it’s healing and medicinal properties! ¬†Shea Butter is high in linoleic acid which helps regenerate new skin cells. Dry skin indicates a lack of moisture and collagen production, and Shea Butter¬†helps stimulate skin collagen. Our Balm and Body Butters are blended with Shea Butter, our Certified Organic Lavender Essential Oils, and other healing essential oils providing skincare products that are ideal for dry skin, dermatitis, sunburns,¬†ulceration, and other skin¬†irritations¬†and chapping. You can use them freely, and feel confident, and assured that these healing balms are made with the most natural ingredients. All to help nourish¬†you skin back to it’s soft, supple, and healthy state! ¬†ūüôā

X-Treme Body Butter: Unrefined Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Wheat Germ oil, and essential oils of Lavender, Vanilla, Sea Buckthorn, Ylang Ylang, Carrot Seed, Tea Tree, Melissa, Comfrey Root and Geranium.

Lavender Shea Butter Balm: Unrefined Shea Butter Wheat Germ oil, Lavender essential oils( Grosso & Angustifolia Blend) Natural Beeswax.

 

The RAW natural Shea Butter that I use!

I have a great source for unrefined Shea Butter that comes direct from Ghana. I buy it in 20 lb. blocks, and it has only been melted once to pack it. This ensures the rich nutrients that are inherit in Shea Butter are not lost upon repeated melting to ‘package’ the product. It is a Shea Butter like no other!

Holiday Bazaar and Yummy 5 Spice Cookies

Share Button

I took the day off with Papa Elf, from producing Lavender Products, and also packing up web orders for our customers. We went to a local Bazaar at the HR County Fairgrounds, called Last Chance Christmas Bazaar. In past years we’ve participated in this local Arts & Craft event, but this year we chose to take a break. Many of the vendors are friends of ours, including the ladies that run the “Special Olympics” booth. I purchased a pack of 10 sweet Christmas Cards, hand painted by the Special Olympic Athletes.¬†

I also purchased several bags of their handmade Chex Mix, since I don’t have that on my to do list! After shopping, I visited my neighbors with Christmas cards and a plate of homemade cookies, Five Spice Lavender Shortbread & Coconut Lavender Balls. ¬†If you love christmas spices, and coconut & Lavender as much as I do, then you’ll love these recipes.

Five Spice Shortbread

This recipe is from Ming Tsai ( I add this to my Lavender Shortbread¬†recipe, without the “Mint”)

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoons ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground star anise

1/4 cup turbinado or other granulated sugar

1 chilled log of Lavender Shortbread cookie dough.

-Preheat the oven to 325’F. In a small bowl, combine the ginger, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, and sugar.

-Cut the chilled log into ¬†1/2″ rounds. ¬†Dip one cut surface of each round into the spice mixture and arrange the rounds 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

-Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.  Remove the cookies with a spatula and cool.

I hope you enjoy preparing for a very Merry & Calm holiday!
