Sluggish Liver?

Our precious livers do not get enough credit. Our liver is the largest internal organ, and one that performs over 500 vital functions so we can live. One of those critical functions is the detoxification, or breakdown of toxins to clean up our bodies, and the metabolism of drugs. Along with our kidneys, our liver is one of the main filters of the body, filtering out waste and these broken down toxins and sending them to be excreted from the body via the urinary tract or the bowels. Our liver really is an amazing organ!

 

Liver21

So is Your Liver Sluggish?

Symptoms of a sluggish liver include things like indigestion, bloating, headaches, digestive headaches (from what you ate), acne, eczema, high cholesterol and blood lipid levels, fatigue, water retention, and disturbed sleep. So what can you do for a sluggish liver? As far as essential oils go, they have shown to be very effective in aiding detoxification in the liver, helping the liver to clean itself up, and supporting healthy liver function.

Which Oils to Use for the Liver

As far as essential oils go, some of them have shown in studies to be very effective in supporting the liver and aiding liver detox. Before using ANY essential oils for the liver, you should clearly understand that if you use essential oils to support the liver they must be USDA certified organic and have the USDA organic seal right on the label, or you cannot take them internally. Even if someone tells you that they are ‘as good as’ organic or ‘beyond’ organic (both of these terms are incorrect and actually illegal because they would confuse consumers and have them believe that some nonorganic products are better than certified organic products – which they are not). So be ultra careful about this. Do not risk your or your liver’s health by using the lower grade, toxic pesticides laced NONorganic essential oils. They are cheaper, but they are NOT the same. We cannot stress enough how important this is for your health!

So now that we’re talking exclusively high quality certified organic essential oils – like the ones we have at Purify Skin Therapy, we can address which oils to use and how.

Healthy Ways to Support Your Liver

Organic Lemon oil, with its high levels of the phytochemical Limonene, is a great support to the liver. Studies show it actually helps increase liver detoxification as well as cools and cleanses the body and liver.

Lemonorg

Organic Peppermint oil is also useful to support and aid the liver in detoxification. It also stimulates the liver to work overall more efficiently and clean up its sluggishness.

PeppermintUSDA

Organic Carrot Seed oil is amazing for the liver. No other oil can help the liver regenerate itself more than this pungent oil. It helps the liver clean itself up, and it is a strong liver protecting oil. It literally helps protect your precious liver from harsh chemicals.

Carrot Seet 2018

Organic Clove Bud oil has significant liver protecting and liver detoxifying properties, though do not use if pregnant or for long periods of time.

Clove Bud 2018

Organic Geranium oil is helpful when there is liver congestion. It is also a liver protectant that like Carrot Seed oil protects the liver against harmful chemicals.

Geranium 2018

As you can see, there are several oils that are healthy and beneficial for the detoxing, cleaning, and protection of our livers. How would you use these oils? The safest method of application for the liver is to put 1 to 2 drops of these organic oils into an empty vegetarian gel capsule and then fill the capsule up the rest of the way with organic olive oil. Put the lid on the capsule and swallow it like a pill. This delivers the oils right to the liver. Try it today! Most people notice a big difference.

Citrus Essential Oils

Oh Baby, Gotta Love the Citrus!

citrus

Citrus is crisp, fresh, uplifting, invigorating, and mouthwatering. It’s beautiful just to look at! Your citrus essential oils should be this way too!

Who doesn’t LOVE citrus essential oils?! They are one of my personal favorite things to use in the summer because they just smell so good, fresh, and feel like summer.

Citrus essential oils are usually cold pressed from the rind of the fruit, they do not come from the inside juice of the fruit. Because they come from the rind they will have a different phytochemical makeup than the juice does.

In the United States, citrus groves are routinely sprayed with all kinds of chemicals and pesticides. It is the rind of the fruit that is covered with these sprays. Because citrus oils are cold pressed from the rind of the fruit, if the citrus has been sprayed with ANY chemicals or pesticides, then 100% of those toxic chemicals are squeezed right into the resulting essential oil yield. This is why it is so critical that is you use citrus essential oils that they are certified organic. NONorganic citrus oils will contain unusually high levels of toxic chemicals and pesticides. This means that most citrus oils contain varying amounts of very toxic pesticide poisons that you do not want to be using. TIP: If your bottle of citrus oil does NOT have the USDA seal on the label, then it is NOT organic! (no matter what anyone tells you, that is how you tell for sure.) If the USDA seal is on the label, then it is organic.

Most citrus essential oils produced in the United States are ultimately used in cleaning supplies. They are NONorganic (because it doesn’t matter for cleaning supplies) and processed (standardized) to meet the commercial requirements. This is not the grade of essential oil you want to be using for your aromatherapy, on and in your body, but this is the quality that most essential oil companies offer you.

Purify Skin Therapy’s certified organic citrus essential oils are especially potent, fresh, and crisp. We use only the purest, organic, therapeutic grades of citrus oils. You can tell a lot about a company from their citrus oils. We have compared our citrus oils to dozens of “good” essential oils companies and have never found their equal.

There are so many citrus oils to choose from:

Lemon, Orange, Red Mandarin, Green Mandarin, Bergamot, Lime, Tangerine, and Grapefruit.

OrangeUSDA LemonorgLime USDABergamot 8-18-16

Here are some tips for using these amazing citrus oils during this summer season.

ALL citrus oils are antidepressant, and mood lifting. You almost cannot smell their tart, citrus goodness without just feeling better! Diffuse citrus oils around your house for a light, uplifting mood enhancing vibe.

Citrus is a lovely, brightening addition to teas, drinks, smoothies, and even frostings, ice creams, and desserts. When ingested citrus oils aid the liver in detoxification, aid the body in digestion, and are even chemopreventive. They are actually really good for your body, BUT be sure if you are going to ingest citrus oils that they are certified organic, otherwise they contain too many toxins to swallow!

Some citrus essential oils are amazing for the skin. Lemon and orange are two that are really good. They decongest skin, are anti-wrinkle, and are anti-aging. Be sure to dilute them before applying to the skin, and be sure to look at our safety tip below:

Safety

There are safety issues, even with fairly gentle citrus oils. Most citrus oils are phototoxic, which means you cannot apply them to your skin and then go out into the sun or UV light. Citrus oils may cause you to burn (badly) where they were applied, or cause your skin to change colors (even green or blue). This effect can last for weeks, months, or years. Just be sure not to topically apply citrus essential oils and then go out into the sun. After applying citrus oils to the skin you should wait 12 hours before going into the sun or UV light. I tell people to apply citrus oils at night time. Then, by the time you would be in the sun the next day you’ll be perfectly fine.

Be sure your citrus oils are certified organic! Get some of Purify’s amazing citrus essential oils and start using them today!

Why You Should Add Chamomile to Your Medicine Cabinet

Are you looking for a new oil to add to your repertoire? Consider chamomile oil with its many benefits, including those for mind, body, and soul.

Oil Spotlight: Chamomile

Chamomile Roman2Chamomile German

Chamomile is an often undervalued oil that offers a myriad of benefits for not just your physical health, but also for your mental health and beauty routine. Here are some benefits and uses for this amazing oil that you may not be aware of.

What is Chamomile Oil?

So what exactly is chamomile oil? Derived from the flowers of the chamomile plant, the two types of chamomile oils available each offer different benefits. Roman Chamomile tends to have a more calming effect, while German Chamomile is known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Although different in composition, both types of chamomile oil are excellent for treating many of the same conditions.

Mental Health Benefits

In addition to having a calming effect on people, chamomile is also known to have an antispasmodic effect, promoting relaxation. It has proven itself effective in helping people manage depression, as chamomile can decrease and possibly even eliminate feelings of depression, sluggishness, and sadness, while leaving users with a happier mood. Roman Chamomile especially is also good at helping calm anger, specifically in children, while curbing annoyance and irritation, encouraging better mood and mental health.

Physical Health Benefits

Aside from being anti-inflammatory, chamomile is known to help with digestion and encourage the proper functioning of the stomach, while helping maintain health in the liver, and keeping bile flowing properly. Chamomile can help boost the nervous system, detoxify the blood while stimulating the circulatory system, expel gas from the stomach and intestines, relieve pain, and even lower blood pressure. Some research suggests that chamomile may be an effective tool in fighting and preventing cancer.

Beauty Benefits

The benefits of chamomile far extend just health and wellness issues—both types of chamomile oil are known to be helpful for both skincare and haircare. Chamomile is excellent for nourishing the scalp, strengthening hair, keeping hair moisturized, and even acting as an anti-dandruff and great solution for the treatment of lice. Chamomile is particularly effective in treating acne, decreasing the redness and inflammation of blemishes, and making scars less visible.

Take Control of Your Health

Are you ready to give chamomile oil a try and see what benefits you’ll reap? Whether you’re looking for help with skin problems, an improvement in your ability to relax, or just some help with digestion, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for with the help of chamomile oil. Inhale the oil for help with mood, apply directly to your abdomen for help with digestion, and apply directly to your face to manage acne and other skin issues.

What to Look For in Superior Essential Oils ~ How to Tell the Difference

The Highest Quality Essential Oils in the World Have the Following:

1. Certified Organic

This is so important! If your essential oils are not certified organic and carry the USDA seal right on the label of every bottle, then there are toxic pesticides in that oil. When using medicine from plants, you must ensure that you are getting those plants that are completely unsprayed. The only way to guarantee this is to verify that each oil is certified organic or wildcrafted. 80% of all Purify Skin Therapy’s essential oils are USDA certified organic.

image

2. Wildcrafted

This is the other highest quality oil. Wildcrafted essential oils grow in the wild, are not sprayed, and are ethically and sustainably harvested. The other 20% of all Purify Skin Therapy’s essential oils are wildcrafted. If a bottle of essential oil is really wildcrafted it will state “wildcrafted” right on the label. Otherwise, it is not.

3. When it comes to essential oils say NO to conventional farming

Conventional farming is where they use billions of pounds a year of toxic pesticides, larvicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, etc. sprayed on the plants. These toxic chemicals come through the extraction process and are concentrated in the resulting essential oils produced from conventional farming – toxifying the essential oil. It’s ironic that all those big companies selling oils ONLY have this grade of oil, yet claim to have the best oils! Be careful of these false marketing claims. Purify Skin Therapy is the ONLY company in the state of Utah that does not carry ANY (not one!) conventional grade essential oils. Most other essential oil companies ONLY have this grade. You can identify conventional grade essential oils because they have “100% therapeutic grade” written on the label, or other such language, but do not say ORGANIC or WILDCRAFTED on the label.

3. Tested for Quality

Purify Skin Therapy runs each batch of oil through 9 stringent quality tests including GC/MS lab work, optical rotation, and organoleptic testing by a certified professional, just to name a few.

4. The company has a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist

Purify Skin Therapy is also the only company in the state of Utah who has a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist. Let me say that again….We are the only company in Utah that has ANYONE actually TRAINED in aromatherapy! You know those big essential oil companies that sell tons of oils? None of them have anyone actually trained or certified in correct aromatherapy. That should say something to you! Get your oils and your aromatherapy advice from someone who knows what they’re doing!

5. Bottled in cobalt blue glass bottles

Purify Skin Therapy uses only cobalt blue glass bottles. They cost four times more than the cheap amber brown bottles, but cobalt blue glass protects your precious essential oils better from light and UV rays. Essential oils in cobalt blue glass bottles will have longer shelf life.

7. Hand bottled

Again, Purify Skin Therapy is the only essential oil company in Utah that only hand pours or hand bottles the essential oils. This prevents the cross contamination of machine bottling, and ensures you are ONLY getting the pure oil listed on the label.

Purify Skin Therapy

We are the only company in the state of Utah that offers you all of these quality points, and more. Are these points important to you? They are to us, and they make such a difference in the quality of your essential oils. One smell and you can smell the difference this attention to quality makes! Try them and you too will see the difference.

Best Essential Oils for Dry Skin

Don’t let the cold, dry air of winter months rob you of your beautiful, smooth skin. Use these essential oils to keep your skin moisturized the natural way.

What Are The Best Essential Oils For Dry Skin?

skin2

The cold, dry air of winter is not a friend to your skin. Dry, chapped skin, depending on its severity, can range from annoying to painful. No one wants to deal with cracked hands or feet, and essentially everyone wants to enjoy the benefits of smooth, beautiful skin from head to toe.

Essential oils offer a natural way to moisturize your skin. You can enjoy smooth, bright, beautiful skin without exposing yourself to all of the harsh ingredients found in many of today’s products. When using essential oils to support the skin it is recommended to dilute these concentrated essential oils with a good organic carrier oil like grapeseed, or jojoba oil. This helps also to keep the skin moisturized. Use the following oils to get beautiful skin naturally.

Lavender

Lavender is a great option for almost all skin types. There are several ways you can apply this oil. You can mix three to four drops with a tablespoon of base oil and rub the mixture into your hands every day. You can mix it with a moisturizer, put it in a homemade body scrub, etc. It’s very versatile.

As an added benefit, lavender is one of the best-loved scents and is well known for its calming effects. Who wouldn’t want smooth hands and a calm, less-stressed mind?

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang oil offers a beautiful fragrance as well as moisture. It can help improve your skin’s elasticity and smooth the fine lines that develop on dry, well-used hands.

Simply mix a few drops into a carrier oil, and rub it into your hands, mix it with your lotion of choice, or even add a couple of drops into your bath water.

Geranium

If you’re looking for toned, smooth skin, geranium can be very helpful. In fact, it works for both dry and oily skin. Geranium stimulates new skin growth and helps regulate sebum production.

You can use a few drops in a DIY face mask to help revitalize your skin. You could also choose to add 4-5 drops of geranium to 2 oz of water in a spray bottle and lightly spray the mixtures on your dry skin.

Rose

Roses are known throughout literature, gardening, film, and romance for their beautiful scent. Fortunately, rose oil also offers great benefits for those suffering from dry skin as well.

Rose oil nourishes dry, chapped skin. It helps your skin retain its moisture. You can add a few drops to your homemade lotions, skin masks, moisturizers, etc. to magnify the effects and leave you with smooth, soft, skin.

 

As always, when using essential oils you want to make sure that they are certified organic and have the USDA seal right on the label for the cleanest, most toxin-free oils. Purify Skin Therapy proudly offers you the largest selection of USDA certified organic essential oils. and is committed to the purest, cleanest, most effective essential oils.

Fight your dry skin with natural, powerful ingredients. To learn more about essential oils, or to order ones to help your skin, call us today.

5 Reasons Your Home Needs Bergamot Essential Oil

5 Reasons Your Home Needs Bergamot Essential Oil

 (and make sure it’s certified organic!)

Bergamot2

Bergamot is an excellent essential oil to add to your medicine cabinet, offering not only physical benefits but emotional benefits that anyone can reap.

Oil Spotlight: Bergamot

Of all the essential oils on the market, bergamot is perhaps one of the most undervalued and underutilized on its own. While present in many expensive perfumes, bergamot offers more than just a pleasant smell. Here are 5 benefits you can reap by introducing bergamot into your essential oils collection.

Emotionally Calming

Bergamot is beneficial emotionally and mentally on a variety of levels because of its ability to calm. This oil is known to offer a boost in energy and improvement in mood, acting as a natural antidepressant, while also helping stimulate the production of dopamine and serotonin, both of which help reduce anxiety and stress. In addition, bergamot is known to help you feel more relaxed and less stressed, thus helping you feel better overall.

Helpful with Digestion

Often applied to the stomach or abdomen, bergamot can be beneficial in helping your body with digestion by working to increase the secretion of enzymes, bile, and acids essential to the digestive process. As an added benefit, bergamot is helpful in reducing constipation, relieving gas and bloating, preventing complications of the gastrointestinal system, and helping you maintain regular bowel movements.

Improves Your Skin

Offering a variety of benefits for your skin, bergamot is an excellent oil to use for facial cleansing. Not only does this essential oil remove excess natural oil from your face, but it’s also great for balancing out skin tone by decreasing dark spots, fading blemishes and acne marks, and healing scars. There’s also the added benefit of inhaling the oil as you cleanse, helping reduce your stress. Note that bergamot essential oil is photosensitizing and should not be used topically on the skin in the morning or 12 hours before going out into the sun or UV rays.

Eliminates Odor

In addition to offering a pleasant smell, bergamot is effective in eliminating odor. This oil can be used as a deodorant to prevent germs that cause body odor from growing, which ultimately allows you to smell fresh and clean. Bergamot is also useful in masking moldy and musty smells in a room and is excellent in helping refresh carpet and upholstery.

Prevents Infection

Bergamot oil is naturally high in antimicrobial and disinfectant properties making it an excellent addition to any first aid kit. Preventing the growth of germs, bacteria, and viruses, this oil is useful to have on hand especially when you have young children in your home constantly getting scrapes and cuts. And the benefits of bergamot go further than skin deep—this oil has also been known to help manage and cure infections of the intestines, kidneys, colon, and urinary tract.

Upgrade Your Medicine Cabinet Today

If you’re looking to upgrade your medicine cabinet, first aid kit, or just improve your beauty routine, bergamot is an excellent addition. This amazing oil offers a myriad of benefits beyond just smelling nice, however, the pleasant odor is definitely a bonus. Another important point is to be sure you are getting certified organic bergamot essential oil, as non-organic essential oils contain toxic levels of pesticides. At Purify Skin Therapy we only sell USDA certified organic and wildcrafted essential oils. Our pristine organic essential oils are cleaner and work better too.

Are you ready to add organic bergamot to your home? Call us today and place your order!

Miraculous Melissa Essential Oil

As you build up your supply of essential oils, remember that plants are superstars in their ability to work with our bodies for support, aid and benefits that can be realized. The more you know, the better you will do in working with your body. I want to share with you an essential oil that may not be a household name, but when you know what it is good for you will be grateful to have it in your arsenal.

Miraculous Organic Melissa Essential Oil

melissa5mlnew

 

Melissa is an essential oil that we really must talk about. We meet so many people at shows and expos that are very adamant that they do not like Lavender. For whatever the reason Lavender is offensive to them. The reason this is so concerning is that if you were to characterize an essential oil as one that was good for pretty much everything, that oil would be Lavender. Well, now you have another option. Melissa essential oil is very much like Lavender in that it is good for everything.

Whether you need help with a low frequency emotion pulling you down, help being calm, relaxed, pain, a burn, skin problem, wound, breathing or anything else you can think of Melissa is going to be wonderful. If you were limited in the oils you could have on hand, this oil would for sure be one that would be extremely beneficial for so many things.

Melissa essential oil is great for the brain and helps with memory. It has a very strong ability to fight cold sores and other viruses, as it is renowned for being a strong anti viral oil. It helps lower blood pressure due to its calming effect and has also been called a “tonic for the heart”. It will help with cramps and bloating, as well as stimulate the liver. It is very energizing and boosts the immune system. Melissa also helps with those who are dealing with the loss and grief of a loved one. Melissa can also help one release anger in times of crisis or trauma.
