In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Calendula (called Jin Zhan Ju) is considered energetically neutral and is used to support healthy skin. According to herbalists, calendula is an herb used for minor wounds that helps by bringing circulation to the area in distress. It can be used similarly to Arnica, yet it is a much more mild plant that can be used on open wounds.
Lavender is widely known for its healing properties and calming effects. The name “lavender” is derived from the Latin word lavare, meaning, “to wash”. Lavender is known as one of the seven polyvalents, which are effective against many toxins. Greeks and Romans perfumed their bathwater with lavender, burned lavender incense to appease their wrathful gods and strongly believed the scent of lavender to be soothing to untamed lions and tigers.
The Vanilla plant is an herbaceous climbing vine that bears trumpet-shaped flowers that have been used as a traditional remedy for both the skin and mental health since ancient times. The antibacterial properties of Vanilla make it beneficial for the treatment of acne in addition to being extremely rich in antioxidants. These powerful antioxidants slow down signs of aging and protect skin from damage caused by environmental pollutants and toxins. Anti-inflammatory properties can gently soothe and calm inflamed areas on the skin. Certain studies on aromatherapy have proven that Vanilla can have a positive effect on those suffering from depression and anxiety disorders, is said to work as an aphrodisiac and is beneficial for your nervous system. The amazing vanilla scent will help to relieve the feeling of nausea. In fact, it is as good as nausea medicine and can effectively substitute it.
