EVEN COWGIRLS NEED HEALTHY SKIN
One day last fall while I was scrutinizing my maturing face in the bathroom mirror, applying cocoa butter and a commercial face cream to which I'd added essential oils and flower essences, a name popped into my head: "WRINKLE WRANGLER". Immediately, I realized that I was being given a message to source a new formulation for my expanding product line. It would be a complex, synergistic facial cream.
I began my research that very day, beginning with discerning what actually constitutes an excellent face cream. This is what I came up with:
* It must have regenerative and rich nutritive qualities providing vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytohormones, essential fatty acids, polysaccharides, enzymes, and other ingredients for healthy tissue growth and cell renewal.
* It must promote detoxification, circulation, lymphatic activity, sebaceous balance and regulation, muscle firmness, and connective tissue elasticity.
*There needs to be antiseptic, antibacterial, astringent, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and oxygenating properties.
*Other essentials include strong emollient and moisture retaining materials, wrinkle reduction, skin tone and smoothness, and protection against environmental pollutants, harshness, and stress.
After weeks of collecting and going over information on potential ingredients for my super-concentrated, all natural face cream, I collaborated with my guiding forces to come up with a synergistic blend of over 50 botanical ingredients. Wrinkle Wrangler was born!
Wrinkle Wrangler contains Apricot, Hemp, Grapeseed, Olive, Coconut, Jojoba, Wheat Germ, Rosehip; Lanolin; Aloe; Butters: Cocoa, Mango, Shea, Mowrah; Manuka Honey; Raw Silk; Rosewater; Glycerine; Extracts: Angelica seed, Selfheal, St. John’s Wort, Comfrey Leaf, Seaweed, Horsetail, Rosemary; Citric acid; Essential Oil’s: Elemi, Frankincense, Neroli, Myrrh, Geranium, Lavender, Sweet Orange, Fennel, Jasmine, Sandlewood, Cedar, Carrot seed; 14 Flower Essences for vibrational enhancement and harmonization.
All of the carrier oils are cold-pressed, the herbs are either from certified organic growers, wild-crafted, or grown in my garden, and the essential oils are therapeutic grade. I suggest that Wrinkle Wrangler be used as a night cream but I'm finding that because of its protective and long-lasting qualities, I like to use it when I'm headed outdoors into the harsh mountain elements as well.
Other benefits that can be derived from using Wrinkle Wrangler include calming, relaxing, a sense of well-being, anti-depressant, and energy that can assist in preventing latent disorders or maladies with long term usage. Of course, there are additional measures that contribute to healthy skin, like drinking plenty of pure water, eating a healthy diet of variety and moderation, taking EFA supplements, regular exercise, moderate caffeine and alcohol consumption, meditation, sleep, and time for ourselves.
Taking care of our skin from the outside and inside can help us to look better and feel better, expanding our sense of emotional and psychological balance and well-being, which is a major component of our spiritual growth and evolution.
