Hi Barbara, I love Pack Your Bags, They're Leaving. I just received it today, I can definitely see the difference, (I initially did do one eye first & there was a difference) I am so pleased to find something that actually works!!
Skin Care and Simply Divine Botanicals
Recently, when I was doing a workshop in Las Vegas, I went to visit Barbara Rogers at Simply Divine Botanicals. I was amazed at the energy she created at her place. She seemed like a mother fairy with her little fairies working around her, creating these amazing skin products. Barbara is a healer in her own right, as well as a Reiki practitioner and a master herbalist. The principle that intrigued me with her work was that she energized all her products with heart-felt love, good intentions, and Reiki. Based on her herbal mastery and the use of aromatic oils, she had also used these principles to activate the acupuncture meridians with her skin products in a way that seemed to create systemic healing as well as activating the skinís own energies. Barbara had been working on the skin care products in an unusual way, making them without any toxic chemicals or additives. The answer came to her of how to do this after two years of prayer. What she received was how to make skin care products, not only without toxins, but which raise peopleís vibrational energy. Sometimes people look askance at the focus on the skin. But itís helpful to understand the skin is the largest surface area organ on the body, and our work at the Tree of Life, as we look at the skin, is how to create an outer radiance that reflect our inner radiance. I believe that Simply Divine Botanicals, made by this group of ďholy fairies,Ē really achieves that purpose.
Weíve been using the products at the Tree for several years and have been quite pleased with them. Some of the most exciting products include Keeping Abreast of It, which is especially good for the lymphatic system in general, but specifically good for breast lymphatic congestion, and breast cysts. Iíve used it with very good results in women with these kinds of issues. It seems to be good for all lymphatic drainage and circulation and because of its aromatherapeutic effects on the meridians that stimulate lymphatic circulation, I use it for people who have lymphatic congestion any part of the body, as well as the breasts.
Barbara has also developed, with the use of a very rare oil called tamanu oil, from the tamanu berry, some very interesting remedies. She makes very delightful names; one of them is called Pack Your Bags They're Leaving!. Many people suffer from under-eye puffiness, and this is a remedy put under your eyes that really makes the puffiness move away, and also helps strengthen kidney function. She also has a product called Skincredible, made from this tamanu oil, which she finds to be very helpful with rosacea, herpes, eczema, burns, acne, varicose veins, arthritis, and pain in general. This product has just come out, and it has amazing testimonials. Another interesting product of hers is called Face the Day. Itís a firming seaweed serum that seems to be quite popular and it is exceptionally good for sun-damaged skin. It really comes in two steps: Face the Day, which is a seaweed serum, made from 100% pure brown seaweed extract, lipozome vitamin C, grapefruit extract, and essential oils. You follow this up with a dilution of that, called Pump Up The Volume, made of the same things. The French have been very passionate about seaweed therapies for years. It is part of what is called thalassotherapy. Seaweed concentrates all of the oceanís nutrients in the same perfect balance for humans. According to Dan Fryda, author of Oceans Within, seaweed, ďÖ. whether eaten or applied topically via micronized seaweed products, is virtually a perfect substance for the body and skin providing the richest source of minerals, trace elements, amino acids, anti oxidants, phytohormones, polysaccharides and enzymes found anywhere in nature.Ē Seaweeds and algae possess super human-friendly protective substances. Some of the benefits include: anti aging skincare; increased skin UV tolerance; cold sore (herpes) infection, possible STD prevention, and weight loss. She has also made a very effective analgesic balm called Hot 4 You.
Barbaraís work has also yielded products for the more traditional skin care approaches, such as the Gypsy Rose tea astringent, which was inspired by a 1500-year old formula made by the Gypsies for the Queen of Hungary. This is a blend that she infuses for six weeks and adds a few additional herbs. The benefits are for all the skin types. It keeps the skin fresh all day long and soothes dry, irritated skin.
The main principle in offering these skin care products is the suggestion that we can honor ourselves by using them, increasing our outer radiance as a reflection for the inner radiance. By developing our outer radiance we build up our inner radiance. Itís a real gift that sheís given to us. Simply Divine Botanicals is of course available at the Awakened Living Shoppe, and online. I encourage you to give yourself a treat by rebalancing your skin energies, and therefore rebalancing your system.
Another advantage of these oils and creams is that they serve a very important Ayurvedic principle of balancing vata, and most people, in the stress of our modern-day life, have a tendency to become vata-deranged. I have found these oils effective for balancing the vata energy, which is reflected in a rough, dry skin and an irritated nervous system. The Ayurvedic principle, which we do detail with our Panchakarma massage and the only live-food Panchakarma seven-day program in the world, is effective for both detoxification and rejuvenation. It is most effective for balancing and healing vata. Itís a whole other way to create calm, peace, and joy in your life.
