How Ageless La Cure is Made Energetic with Essential Oils
Vital Energy of the Plants
"The most important argument for using essential oils in cosmetics has to do with their vital force and their naturalness. The life within us can be best cared for and healed with living things.
The Face of the Flower for Facial Care
We have a strong affinity for plants–particularly the flower oils–their blossoms are the "face" of the plant that are used for facial care in essential oil cosmetics.
When the facial skin is treated with flower oils, it receives the entire stored solar energy and vital force of the essential oil.
The flower's oils are easily dissolved by the sebaceous fat, and their molecules are so small that they can actually penetrate the skin to reach the lowest level and even affect the deeper tissue and organs."
– Erich Keller, Aromatherapy Handbook for Beauty, Hair, and Skin Care: A Guide to the Use of Essential Oils for Beauty and Healing
The vital force of the plant which Erich Keller speaks of is present and intact to a very large degree in Ageless La Cure skincare. It's why we call our skincare energetic, as in possessing vital energy that is easily and joyously received and utilized by the skin and body of the Ageless La Cure client.
Damask Rose Essential Oil In Many Ageless La Cure Products
The Damask rose, sometimes referred to as the king of flowers, is not only beautiful but unrivaled in fragrance. It has been well received and eagerly traded since ancient times. Growing about six feet tall and wide, the Damask rose grows on long bowing stems bearing heads of loosely cupped rose pink petals.
Damask rose essential oil of the quality used in Ageless La Cure is incredibly expensive, but we would rather charge more for a product we can be proud of and we are completely confident in.
- It takes roughly 6,000 pounds of fresh damask rose petals to create two and a half pounds of essential oil.
Damask rose is luxurious, romantic and its essential oil is found in many of the products in PHYTO5’s Ageless La Cure line.
With a strong presence of the phytochemical and antioxidant lycopene, Damask rose is believed to be very beneficial in the prevention of many free radical diseases.
According to the scientific study, “Pharmacological Effects of Rosa Damascena” by Boskabady, Shafei, Saberi and Amini, Damask rose includes an “anti-HIV, antibacterial, antioxidant, antitussive, hypnotic, antidiabetic, and relaxant effect…”
