September 28, 2017 1 Comment

I have had several family members and friends go through radiation over the years. It really takes a toll on their skin, causing burning, redness, discoloration, hardness and discomfort.

Hyperpigmentation Serum

As most people know, helichrysum is quite expensive, but delivers an... Read More

What are plant enzymes and how can they help us? Plant enzymes breaks down proteins, fats, carbs and starches. Enzymes are commonly discussed when it comes to digestion. So in aromatherapy, to help the body digest the essential oil via topical and inhalation applications, enzymes can be helpful.
