Strawberries are probably hands down my favorite fruit to eat. They are super easy to grow, literally in a small pot anyone can grow a Strawberry vine pretty much at any time of the year. I've found that Strawberry vines are not fussy or needy plants. They just need to be placed in a semi shady area with some sunlight, either outside on your balcony or inside. They are also frigging delicious to eat and super healthy for providing a healthy heart and balancing anti inflammatory issues. But it turns out that new research has discovered that Strawberries are the latest super fruit for Green beauty products because they are so high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. But I'm not really surprised by this, since Strawberry leaf tea and Strawberry juice have long been used in ancient cultures for helping to maintain good kidney health, to motivate the metabolism and as a general health tonic. And Strawberry leaf tea is well known to help in delaying women's reproductive cycles. Strawberries are bursting with nutrient rich anti-oxidants and whole lot of vitamin C.
So what makes Strawberries so good for your skin?
1. They are a Rich source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is amazing for your skin because it naturally protects your skin from free radicals that steal oxygen from healthy skin cells and destroy collagen, ewwwww!
2. Strawberries are rich in Folic acid. Folic acid assists in cell regeneration and the production of new cells in our bodies.
Helichrysum blossoms are the perfect herbal counter balance for the sweetness of Strawberry juice. Helichrysum blossom oil is known for its restorative properties for the skin. While Strawberry juice will brighten and plump your skin, Helichrysum oil will restore and heal your skin.
Known to herbalists as the “Everlasting or Immortal Flower” Helichrysum is used for its pure potent anti-aging and skin healing properties. Helichrysum blossoms are tiny and look like mini daisy flowers. The name “Helichrysum” is derived from the Greek “helios” meaning sun and “chrysos” meaning gold, referring to the color of the flowers. Helichrysum has been used for thousands of years in ancient herbal practices since Ancient Greece. Its oil is highly valued and sought after for its many herbal benefits. Helichrysum can help reduce the appearance of blemishes, and promote a glowing, youthful complexion.
This is why after months of research we finally are thrilled to launch our new Seven Chakras glow oil. We wanted to create a Strawberry juice based serum, but finding the perfect herbal counter balance ingredient proved to be much harder than we anticipated. Strawberry juice is strong and potent, and finding a second complimentary scent and herbal balance that was new and interesting and ancient was a challenge. Often Strawberries are complimented with a herbal ingredient like mint or basil. But both herbs are often overused and we wanted to compliment our Strawberry juice star with a flower. Our Chakra glow oil has fresh Strawberry juice and Helichrysum oil as its two star ingredients. Both are a match made in heaven to give your skin flower powered moisture like it's never had before!
