Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to All. Thank you for your support in 2018.
In December, wondrous pine aroma fills the cities’ air, enhancing well being and holiday spirit.
Pine trees are revered for showing their resilience against the winter colds, embodying human qualities of uprightness and determination.
The pine is a ‘friend of winter’ and has many medicinal properties. When the pine tree gets injured, cut down, it  ‘sheds  tears’  called  resin, an aromatic substance that heals wounds. Pines little ever-green needles are rich in vitamins and cone-nuts save many creatures life during the bare months. The air in a pine forest is virtually free of germs and because of its amazing antibacterial properties, renders the cities with fresh, healthy air. Pine oil is a strong anti-inflammatory substance; alleviates respiratory organs, strengthens  immunity. The fragrance of pine tree also has valued effect on the nervous system, eliminates psychological  discomfort.  When few drops of pine essential oil used in hot bath, stress eliminated; muscles slowly relax and night-sleep becomes peaceful.
Wishing you in this coming year ‘forest bathing’, quiet times among the pines and with deep breaths rejuvenate inside-out.   





Face Reading

October 17, 2018

Interesting to know that the fascinating art of face-reading in some of ancient healing traditions reveals the state of body-mind.
According to face reading principles, different parts of the face mirror the health of different organ systems. The skin texture, color, lines, wrinkles on the face, the eye-nose-mouth-lips-ears condition reflect on the state of internal health. For example : fluid retention and dark circles under the eyes has a correlation to kidneys (indicating a taxed system); lips to digestive organs, cheeks to lungs, earlobe crease to the heart condition and so on. So, the stubborn face-skin ‘break-outs’ oddly can be taken as blessings because they are simply warning signs to make adjustments in life style, diet and habits.
Apparently, face reading goes beyond physical healing art; it is the understanding the non-verbal expression of the Spirit. Only a highly qualified expert can make adjustments through face reading to protect long-term health in physical, emotional and mental sphere . ✴

Wholesome Skin Care

July 5, 2017

The skin mirrors the inner functions of the body. Therefore good skin care should start from inside.

Professional  seasonal  facials, skin care regiments are indeed helpful to re-balance the face skin to a healthier condition.

However, regulating digestive system function by having a healthy, possibly vegetarian in-season diet will  probably  improve  general  health  and eventually also enhance the skin complexion.

Perhaps the best inside-out care is the practice of yoga or qigong and tai chi. These practices have controlled breathing in harmony with body & mind, making the body function healthier that in time will also reflect a brighter appearence.
In  a  case  of  chronic  health / skin  problems,  it  is  advised  to  visit  a physician  and  seek  medical  care.

 






Scheduling Facial Treatment

July 26, 2016

Weather effects the skin condition therefore seasonal changes are great reminders to schedule a facial to transform skin condition and skin care regiments.

Once in each season, a professional facial is helpful to keep the skin healthy.  When  scheduling a  skin care treatment, the best facial choice is to select the kind of facial that is appropriate for the existing skin condition and is in harmony with the season.

To  keep  once-each-season-facial-scheduling is  worth  the  effort  to maintain a healthy condition of the skin throughout the year.





Flower Waters -Hydrosols

March 30, 2016

Flower waters, called hydrosols,  are water-based  plant  solutions and  produced  when  flowers  and  plants  steam  distilled. Hydrosols have all the water soluble elements of plant life and able to” act like a potent yet subtle form of medicine when applied directly to the skin.”

For example, lavender-hydrosol gently treats minor sunburns and stimulates  new  cell growth  to help  the skin  to regenerate. Blue- Cornflower-hydrosol remarkably soothes sensitive skin and sometimes used as eye-drops to calm tired, sun irritated eyes. Chamomile-hydrosol was found to have an alleviating effect on the skin as “nearly  equal  to hydrocortisone”  for its anti-inflammatory compound called azulen …… At spring and summer time in facial treatments, the season’s hydrosols are included for their highest therapeutic qualities .

Restorative Peeling Treatments

November 2, 2015

The soft autumn light makes this season ideal for peeling treatments to refresh the after-summer skin.  These resurfacing treatments are the Luminous Peeling and Deep Peeling.

Luminous peeling treatment at spring and autumn benefits all skin types. A blend of vitamin acids induce a powdery peeling effect on the skin surface. This peel diminish minor skin flaws with the end results of healthy and luminous skin complexion.
Deep peeling treatment is a safe fall-winter treatment especially for problematic skin. Has a noticable ability to restore skin clarity and reduce the appearance of scars. Formulated with vitamin & fruit acids and not advised for sensitive, redness-prone skin.
Both peeling treatments have a rejuvenating, anti-aging ‘side-effect’. :)A free consultation is required for an after-care and it is truly necessary to protect the skin with sun-block after a peeling treatment.





The Rose

February 10, 2015

In  ancient  Indian  texts,  the rose  is  referred  to  as  “The Lotus of the Heart”.         

The rose pure scent feeds the  soul  and  is  said to increase love  and devotion. No wonder why rose readily sparks adoration and admiration. Representing  love  and  beauty,  roses  are  the  symbolic  gift  of Valentine’s day.

Rose  oil  is  still  perhaps  the  most  frequently  used essential  oil  in perfumery and therapeutic skin care.  Being rich in Vitamin C, it works as a gentle flower oil that firms, tightens and evens skin tone. Sensitivity  and  fine lines seemingly vanish and the skin left with a soft, sweet scent.

Rose oil & rose water mist are blended in Flower  Mist  Aromatherapy Facial,  leaving the  skin  resembling  a  delicate flower petal  while  its  fragrance transports the mind to the state of serenity.
