10 Best Plant Oils for Anti-Aging Skin, Scalp, and Hair Care
10 Best Anti-Aging Whole Plant Oils.
Whole-plant extracts, lipid oil, provides nutrients your skin, scalp, and hair need for optimum health and beauty. Lipid oils regenerate new skin, repair scar tissue, skin issue, dull hair, and split ends. The active lipid constituents in cold-pressed seed oil feed our skin the EFA’s our body does not make. Be sure your skincare routine has healthy lipid oils for topical application for your skin, scalp, and hair care to revitalize and maintain healthy beauty. They add life and bounce to your hair with a silky finish and natural shine. Lipid oils nourish and support the cellular life cycle and restore healthy beauty.
Our body does not produce certain EFA’s, essential fatty acids, we must supplement them in our diet and topically for healthy skincare. EFA’s, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and linoleic acid (LA) are essential nutrients for healthy skin and hair. They must be supplemented; our body does not make alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid. EFA’s, omega-6, and omega-3 have documented roles in the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin and scalp. Linoleic acid (LA) is in the parent compound of the omega-6 class and a-linolenic acid (ALA) is the parent compound of the omega-3 class. These two predominant classes of EFA’s have a major role in my serums, to keep your skin healthy. Skin that is deficient in Omega-6 and Omega-3 clinically manifests as dermatitis and skin abnormalities.
Cold-pressed lipid oil replenishes and moisturizes the skin absorbing deeply into the matrix system. This is where hydration is so important. The matrix system is the fluid system of our body which cells move through and absorb all the nutrients they need. We are 80 percent water, make sure you hydrate so all the systems in your body can function flawlessly. The matrix system is made up of fatty acids, salts, protein, carbohydrates, and mucilage. The mucilage is a slick substance developed from carbohydrates, known as demulcents, which keeps the flow of the matrix system moving so cells can travel to their destination forming collagen for new layers of skin, repairing scar tissue, etc.

A hydrated body supports the matrix system for optimum health, prevents wrinkles, inflammation, disease, and degenerative aging. Omega-6 and Omega-3 release free radicals from the cells, once the free radicals are removed our skin can hydrate, and sustain moisture, maintain soft supple skin for graceful aging.
Seeds are the embryo for all plant life, held together in a serum, lipid oil. The serum sustains the life of the embryo. The seeds vital force springs to life bearing a new seedling year after year in the plant kingdom. Our skin cells respond to the same cycle of life, they spring forward and regenerate new skin as the old skin cell dies. Nourishing your skin with real food penetrates deeply into the matrix of the skin.

Essential Fatty Acids, gamma-linolenic, and linoleic acid are powerful antioxidants. They replenish and moisturize the skin, scalp, and hair.
They separate free radicals from the skin cells and penetrate deeply into the matrix of the skin preventing skin cells from becoming dry and sticky, forming wrinkles and dead cell clusters. Whole-plant extracts work on a synergistic level with our holistic system. Our body will absorb, digest, and utilize plant nutrients bypassing constituents they do not need at that point in time, while our system cleanses waste, our body detoxes through the cleansing system. Whole-plant extracts are the perfect design for a healthy body and food for our skin to revive, restore, and recondition healthy beauty. Simply put, for your health and beauty, whole plants for whole people.

Winter is the Time to Strengthen your Vital Energy Reserve copy
Strengthen your Vital Energy Reserve
Winter is the season to strengthen your energy reserve. It needs to be replenished and balanced in the winter in order for our energy levels to remain strong for the rest of the year. Our Kidneys, Adrenals, and Bladder store the energy our body runs on. These 3 organs regulate the endocrine system, fluid metabolism, bone health and the reproduction system. The winter season applies to warm climates as well as cold. Protect yourself from becoming cold or feeling chilled in the winter. The cold winter will deplete your energy reserve for the entire year if you do not keep yourself warm. Besides the cold weather another energy grabber is over exerting yourself in the winter. Exercise is important but not at full throttle in the winter. It is the season to restore your energy banks. Slow down a little. Take a few more baths and less showers. Go to sleep earlier and wake up later. Revitalize your energy stores using more essential oils and drinking herbal teas that contain volatile oils.
Dress in layers so when the temperature drops you can reach for warmer clothes. Staying warm and dry is imperative. In cold weather, I literally go the barn to take care of the horses in snow pants and jacket, hat pulled down low and two layers of gloves. If the leather ones get wet, I can pull them off. I always wear thick wool socks. As soon as I come indoors, I make a hot cup of chai tea, it is loaded with warming herbs with a little zip of caffeine from white tea. I make my own chai tea steeping a white tea bag in water while heating almond milk until is scalds with clove powder, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. Four warming herbs to nurture my Kidneys, Adrenals, and Bladder. Then I rest while I drink my tea. Exhaustion also depletes your energy reserved. Winter is the season to rest and center on your inner man, strengthen your spirit and clear your soul and mind. Find your center of peace and learn how to get there throughout the year. Awareness is important, maintain your energy and a peaceful countenance.
The horses enjoyed all the negative ions all night long from the rain and thaw to the ice and snow, in one night. Their spirit was light, eyes wide open and head held high. They were happy to interact with me. Harmony laid her face on mine and we shared or breath, their way of showing affection, we were face staring into my eyes. I said to her, “You good? I’m good.” She lifter up her head, nodded yes and walked away. I may not have experienced the same fresh air over night, filled with uplifting negative ions from nature, but I enjoyed sharing their energy and companionship.
Terrie and I did patch the driveway the following day. We scouted rocks and pieces of broken ash vault. We had to pry them loose from the ice. We used sand and tile grout mix, the gray powder. Terrie had a reserve in case of emergency. Thank you, Terrie, for thinking ahead. It’s patched well enough to drive over. It was a laborious morning, 3 hours to patch the drive way, care for the horses and a couple of other outdoor chores. When I went inside it was time to rest. First things first, hot chai tea and lunch, then a shower, and some more rest.
Working with essential oils revives your energy and has healthy virtues. It’s all in a day’s work. I always thought about essential oils as a luxury. Because I value them and realize their holistic benefits. Today, I think about them, as a staple of a holistic lifestyle.
If you enjoy diffusing essential oils in your home, here is a list of some of the warming oils to strengthen your energy reserve and support a healthy atmosphere. These are effective anti-viral and immune strengthening oils.
Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil is warm, subtly woodsy and earthy scent has a brightening and uplifting effect on the mood and is reputed to ease feelings of stress. It has been said to promote relaxation, which not only leads to restful sleep but that is also believed to have potential as an aphrodisiac.
Clove Bud Essential Oil has a penetrating warm spicy aroma that is mentally uplifting and stimulating.
Frankincense Essential Oil is spiritually grounding and is calming and relaxing without being a sedative.
Lemon Essential Oil is commonly used to ease stress, combat fatigue, and insomnia.
Rosemary Essential Oil: The fresh quality of Rosemary Oil’s woodsy and herbal aroma makes it uplifting and stimulating, properties that make it ideal for enhancing the mood and increasing cerebral activity as well as focus.
Five Trees Essential Oil is a blend of the 5 essential oils listed above. It is warming and uplifting and has been used to purify the air. It removes the buildup of positive ions in the atmosphere which create free radicals inside our body and on the skin. Over a period of time free radicals form skin cell clusters which can become degenerative. Heat, electricity, lights, computers, television and electrical devices create free radicals.
For the external skin care we need to stay hydrated this winter. Hydrosols are hydrating. Rose Geranium Hydrosol hydrates your complexion and hair. I hydrate my hair and face several times a day. The small amount of volatile oil rejuvenates your complexion with a healthy glow and adds shine and bounce to your hair.
It’s the little changes in your lifestyle that will make the biggest difference of all.
Stay warm and hydrated this winter to maintain your health and beauty.
Fore 35 years I have been working with wholesome plants. My true passion is herbal studies and to educate all people on the holistic benefits whole plants offer us. There is no other material with such a broad variety for our diet and skin care that is worthier than the plant kingdom.
