Winter Blues? A natural solution!

Winter is almost over!! We are all counting the days until Spring! Here is a great herb to help you get through the final days.

I call Rodolia Rosea-happy pills!! About six months ago I was doing research to find a natural supplement to help my husband deal with the anxiety and stress he was experiencing. I ran across this herb called Rhodolia Rosea. I immediately got on Amazon and ordered a bottle. I personally wasn't experiencing stress in my life but when they arrived I decided to try them out along with him. Wow, I could not believe that an herb was this amazing. By the second day I felt a real calming effect from them. It was a euphoric happy feeling that comes over you and stays with you without any physical side effects. Needless to say I loved it and began taking them everyday. When you are taking this supplement you feel like you can handle anything that comes your way. You start noticing that nothing is ruffling your feathers or bothering you. I truly don't know anyone that couldn't use a little dose of that kind of goodness!!

Here are a few benefits of Rhodiola Rosea:
  • Aids in reducing anxiety associated with day to day life
  • Helps reduce fatigue
  • Supports overal heart vitality
  • Promotes improvement in general well being
  • Protects muscle tissue during exercise
  • Natures energy booster
  • Improves the body's response to stress
  • Enhances the healing properties of one's own nervous system
  • Protects the nervous system against oxidative stress, enhancing healthy sleep, lifting depressed mood, relieving anxiety and maintains blood sugar within a healthy range.
I will have to say for me I have experienced all of these benefits listed above.

Since 40% of American women between the ages of 40 and 50 are on prescription anti-depressants, the medical community is taking a serious look at this herb. Many physicians are now prescribing Rhodolia Rosea to cure depression and anxiety instead of prescription drugs. That to me is wonderful progress!!

Like I said, I order mine from Amazon, I have tried several different brands and have chosen the gaia brand as my favorite. I take 3-4 a day. I carry them around in my purse because I never want to be without them

Take some time and read about it yourself. I actually think the whole planet should be on this herb!!

Until next time!!

Real Raw Beauty announced a new product this week, Radiant Toner. We added this product because so many of you have written and asked for it. Our toner is a 100% Organic hydrosol based product. Meaning that 75% is made with lemongrass hydrosol water.

Hydrosol water or hydroflorates are products from steam distilling plants. The water has the properties of the essential oil but far less the concentration. The process to obtain hydrosol water starts with a distiller. The lemon grass plant is put into a large cooker/steamer and as the temperature rises the glands of the plants burst to release the essential oil and the essence of the plant into the steam. The oil will rise and be collected in a container on one side and the steam from the oils are collected in another container. Hydrosol waters are the by product of essential oil removal from plant leaves. The collected steam droplets become the Hydrosol water.
Hydrosols contain all the essence and qualities of the plant in each drop but are in a milder form, making them suitable for toners.

Added to our lemongrass Hydrosol water are Organic oils that work with your skin as an antiseptic, antibacterial and anti fungal.

After cleansing your skin with the Radiant Face Wash, apply the toner to a cotton pad. Immediately you will notice the clean smell of the combined Hydrosol and Organic oils.

The Radiant toner will not dry out your skin. But you will feel and see it working to remove any remaining residue and shrink the pores and firm the skin.

The ingredients in our Radiant Toner will help to kill bacteria, remove environmental toxins, replenish, clean, refresh and cause your skin to look healthier and brighter. It is a perfect addition to your current skin care routine.
