Surfskinoil plant essences are medical grade. This means the mechanism of action is healing. However, the way a plant essence heals is very different to how a drug in a lab 'heals'. The drug from the lab isolates a single symptom, and reduces that symptom alone.
THE POWER OF PLANT MEDICINE
A plant essence stimulates the bodies own healing mechanisms. The body is capable of flooding the blood with pathogen-eating white-blood-cells within a matter of seconds. It is capable of increasing collagen and elastin production around a wound site, resulting in accelerated wound healing.It is capable of flooding a wound site with hydrogen peroxide, synthesized from the vitamin C within its system.The body is able to drive several healing functions at once, by releasing different hormones into the blood stream, again, within milliseconds.
A plant essence carries with it, the signature of the live plant, with all the healing powers it has to offer. A plant medicine is a variety of bio-chemicals, which means they are easily recognized by the body and so highly usable.
THE POWER OF THE BODY
So why doesn't the body do this naturally itself? Why does it need plant medicine? The reason is that often the hormonal system in the body is out of whack.
- emotional stress,
- poor diet,
- lack of hydration,
- poor sleep quality or sleep patterns,
- eating too much or at the wrong times,
- alcohol and drug consumption
... can all push your bodies own system out of whack.
An essential oil basically reminds the body what it is forgetting to do, whilst at the same time providing some amazing localized benefits.
When you apply an essential oil to your skin, it carries with it a myriad of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, all in a bio-available form to the body. This allows the body to accelerate the healing action at a wound site by around 8-12 times. An essential oil like lavender or chamomile, also increases oxygen levels at the wound-site, providing on-the-spot disinfection.
The essential oils are anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-septic and truly a gift to have onboard. Use the code SURFHAPPY11 to get 15% off your next bottle of Surfskinoil!
