|ISUN Skincare Sacred Aromablend|
How are you all doing? Hope life is treating you well? Today I wanted to review something special from ISUN Skincare line, the line that quickly captured my heart and found it's way not only into my daily routine, but into Yearly Favourites as well, nothing less! I have reviewed a number of their products (you can find the links at the end of this post), and today I will share my thoughts on their natural Sacred Aroma Blend.
ISUN products have been consciously formulated to provide a ‘Quantum Healing Effect’ for total well-being – body, mind and spirit. This means, that beyond the obvious effects that support more youthful, balanced, radiant skin, ISUN skin care products also support overall physical and emotional health and well-being. There is a purpose in this. When we are better balanced physically, mentally and emotionally, our hearts are more open, we tend to feel better about ourselves and more loving with others. We are also more open to higher awareness which is often expressed in our thoughts, words and actions. In other words, it becomes easier to realise the Light that we truly are and to recognize the Light in others and all life. The core intention of providing a skin care product that can produce a positive healing effect for the overall body, mind & spirit, opens a pathway to fulfilling the ‘seed intention’ of ISUN as described above. A quantum healing effect that offers a sense of total well-being from a skincare product can only be fulfilled when the products meet the following criteria:
💕 They are created from inception with positive, clear intentions. 💕 They are made from pure, unadulterated, life and health-giving ingredients. 💕 They are made with living, high life-force ingredients.
To me, this is as good at it gets, I see ISUN products as ultimate organic products, even if the wildcrafted ingredients ISUN use, cannot be labeled as organic. Just think about it, wildcrafted ingredients are harvested from plants that grow freely in their natural habitat and have all the elements intact to fully flourish, as opposite to man grown plants, even if they are grown in organic soil. Think of the vibrations wild harvested plants have!
High vibrational ingredients will fill your skin and your whole being with beautiful energy, love and an exquisite harmony - aligning your cells, your tissues, your organs and your chakras with their perfectly balanced innate structure and rhythm. Even if you don't believe in energies, don't you feel better knowing you are getting the ultimately pure and concentrated ingredients in your products? I sure do and it makes my heart sing!
Now, let's look into Sacred Aromablend. When Tracey gave me free reign to choose products I would like to try, this product called my name, and upon hearing the ingredients you will soon understand why. Some of you may know I suffer from SAD and the last year was the hardest year of my life to date, so I really wanted to experience relaxing and mind elevating properties it promises. ISUN say their essential oils aroma blends stimulate the pineal gland (third eye) to support deep inner-mind relaxation and more easily flow into a meditative state. I must admit I am yet to master meditation (tried and failed many times, making my busy mind still proves to be a bigger challenge than I thought) so I simply used this aroma blend a few times a day to calm upcoming anxiety and center myself. You can apply it on pulse, energy or acupressure points including wrists, temples, ear lobes and other places. You can also diffuse it, something I am yet to do if I am honest. Shall we look into ingredients?
Santalum album (sandalwood) oil; Rosa centifolia (rose) flower extract; Boswellia sacra (frankincense) oil; Vetiveria zizanoides (vetiver) root oil; Opoponax (sweet myrrh) oil; Amyris balsamifera (amyris) bark oil; Eremophillia mitchellii (Buddha) wood oil
Does it not make your heart sing? Knowing ISUN as a brand, I have no doubts all these ingredients are the best quality there is. It has calming and relaxing effect to it, like I expected it to. I have to say it is a great tool to help lift my mood and to dissolve anxiety - and I am so glad I have it in my life right now! Do I enjoy using it? Yes! Is it my favourite scent ever? No. If I were to use it as a perfume, I would want to add some sweet scent to it, vanilla maybe? Do I find it helps dissolve my anxiety and lifts my spirits? Absolutely! Smell is powerful and we shouldn't underestimate it. And on the verge of repeating myself like a broken record, let me just tell you that with ISUN you are getting the best quality product, every ingredient is their purest form. And I am so glad I am not breathing in chemicals, I am getting the purest essential oils, which work on a cellular level and help me to better balance myself emotionally and spiritually. For those of you who meditate, this will help you to slip into the meditative phase more easily.
Let's look into some of the effects of those wonderful ingredients in this blend?
Sandalwood oil is widely utilized for its calming and relaxing effect It can be used for depression, daily stress and states of anxiety, fear or chronic illness. It has many uses in the skincare, as well as healthcare, but let's leave it for now. It aids in an increased sense of calmness and greater mental clarity in your day to day life. Sandalwood essential oil can help you achieve more clarity and calmness due to its extensive therapeutic benefits. This special essential oil doesn’t just have an amazing scent, sandalwood can also have an effect on overall well-being and mental health, along with many other healing properties.
The 2006 study (source) found that although sandalwood was relaxing when smelled or rubbed on the skin, it did not promote drowsiness like lavender. Instead, it promoted what researchers referred to as a harmonious feeling, more of a present, clear, but calm awareness. It also boosts your concentration, as well as being all around tonic.
Rose centifolia flower extract (also known as a cabbage rose) is created through a simple process of steam distillation, has been used to treat health conditions and used in natural beauty treatments for thousands of years. Again, let's leave it health and skincare benefits aside for now (which are plentiful).
A perfect example of how beneficial Rose oil can be is seen in how it affects depression. As our ancestors battled situations where their mental status was dampened, or otherwise impaired, they would have been naturally drawn to the pleasant sights and smells of the flowers that surrounded them. I have never seen a person take a whiff of a powerful rose and not smile. And that's what we want! It also aids libido and hormone health. Acording to studies (source) it helps us relax. It is very important to tacle the stress as it comes I find, because left untreated it can cause an array of symptoms in the body (source) and that's the opposite of what we want. So it feels good to know that the effects of rose oil and extracts are science proven, and not just 'in our head'.
Frankincense (boswelia sacra) is a favourite of mine, and I can talk for hours about it!
This essential oil is regarded as a 'king of oils' for thousand of years, and used in aromatherapy that can offer a variety of health benefits, including helping relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation, and boosting immunity. Again, it has many and many benefits for skincare and healtchare, including helping to fight cancer,but let's leave it for now - I urge you to do your own research in this matter, I am a strong advocate in being an informed consumer.
I believe that frankincense oil is one of the top essential oils you can use for your health. It's known for its comforting properties, and is useful for visualizing, improving one's spiritual connection and helping overcome stress and despair. In aromatherapy, frankincense oil is either inhaled or diffused via a vaporizer — a sedative that has been known to help induce a feeling of mental peace, relaxation and satisfaction, and helps relieve anxiety, anger and stress. And that's only a small part there is to it! Again, please do your own research on it - you will be glad you did!
All those befits, and we looked into three ingredients of it! Doesn't all that sound amazing? I am in awe of the power of nature - and I am so glad we can harness all those benefits from natural subtances like essential oils - I feel everyone should know about essential oils and what they can do for you. I myself am not an expert, but the more I find out abou them, the more I want to shout out from the rooftops :)
So yes, I really recommend it!
