Did you know that letting the sun be on your face and hands for just 15mins is all you need to get the best Vitamin D that your body can fully absorb? We’re working with Birmingham University to show that with our oil on the skin, Vitamin D is more quickly absorbed. Read more about the Covid-19 and Vitamin D news 

If you’re spending less time outside, you may not be getting enough sunshine on your skin, Vitamin D deficiency is a real issue for us in the UK,  especially if you use an SPF which completely stops you absorbing this most important of vitamins. You can read more about this and why we need to re-think our use of SPFs  in the Essentially Yours blog about Sun Protection

Next week is forecast to get some nice weather, so get the oils on and get in the sun…

Some frequently asked questions for John Hamilton

Q1. Does using the oil get me a nice tan…
A1. YES absolutely

Q2. Do I need to use a SPF?
A2. No, if you’re careful, the main source of ageing and skin cancer is UVA which bypasses many SPF’s anyway but is neutralised with powerful antioxidant oils as we have. Be careful not to be in direct sunlight for long periods of time otherwise, you will get a surface to burn from UVB, but you need a little UVB for vitamin D

Q3. Does wearing a hat, clothes or being under an umbrella protect me..?
A.3 NO. Wearing a hat or in shade only stop UVB i.e. surface burn not UVA damage so put the oils on even in the shade

Plant extracts and oils helps boost your body’s’ ability to stay safe

I’ve received an interested message from John Hamilton, Managing Director at Essentially Yours. John Hamilton is a dermatologist, who pioneers botanical research into maintenance of a healthy youthful life…

“Well, we’ve managed to stay open during this difficult time to send out your orders. No matter what the ‘anti-natural products’ brigade say, Essentially Yours products do benefit health…

I’ve had one official say ‘the links I put to scientific papers on how essential oils impacted on viruses were not valid’ because… wait for it.. ‘the report was on another strain of coronavirus, not the current one…’ Really!!

It seems no matter what goes on in the natural naturopathic world eg: cure things or prevent things, it’s always shot down by officialdom. So what do you do when you’re surrounded by virologist, cell decay research scientists and biochemists, who all say “we need to turn to natural formulations to solve the future health problems” who do we believe as the expert ?

So what are we talking about?

Screenshot 2020-04-21 at 08.04.01

Well, one of the things is ‘why some people are more susceptible to things like viruses, besides underlying health issues and being older’. Most people pay little attention to what effects the immune system has or know anything about what wears your DNA telomere or mitochondria cells out.

The main reason we are more vulnerable to ageing ailments and illness, once we are exposed, is that our bodies are not able to cope with a pandemic attack, the likes of which we are seeing.

Free Radical damage weakens your immune system

The greatest problem is Free Radical damage which destroys our cells, up to 80%. Free Radical Damage is the main reason why you age and the main cause of cell decay, but it’s also responsible for you having a weaker immune system.
.
When you use products full of synthetic chemicals like shower gels, shampoos, skincare and deodorants you speed up this process and in turn damage and weaken your immune system.

Therapeutic plant extracts and oils helps boost your body’s’ ability to stay safe

965e6aea-0a7b-4037-9e11-0ed2a8dafc7c

When you use natural products without synthetic chemicals you’re not damaging the cells. Using therapeutic unadulterated plant extracts and oils helps boost the body’s ability to stay safe… In plants, vegetables and fruit etc. good things are contained in the oils within them, these natural oils provide vitamins and health benefiting compounds, which in turn neutralise free radical damage providing greater resistance to pathogens when they come along.

That’s why we say “apply our oils to the face and body” because all that is good for you is in there. So if you don’t want to absorb all the bad chemicals, try replacing them with the good ones.

Here’s hoping we can get the funding needed in the near future to prove this, as these wonderful benefits are in our products.

Latest from WDDTY (What Doctors Don’t Tell You)….

I also want to bring you things that being said in the science world this arrive in my in box today from WDDTY (What Doctors Don’t Tell You). Antimalarial drugs have been touted as an answer to COVID-19 infection, and President Trump has even described them as ‘a game-changer’—but they can cause life-threatening heart problems.

A new study into chloroquine was stopped suddenly after two patients died from an irregular heart rate, known as ventricular tachycardia. Researchers from Brazil had planned on a major trial involving 440 people infected with COVID-19, but started to see very worrying reactions to high doses of the drug among the first 81 patients who were being tested.

Within a few days of starting, many given the high doses—600 mg twice a day for 10 days— started suffering heart rhythm problems, and two died. Writing in a research database, the researchers warn that chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, another antimalarial, are not safe or effective therapies against COVID-19. A COVID-19 patient in a hospital in France also died after developing irregular heart rhythms.

Aside from heart problems, the anti-malarials also cause a host of other life-threatening reactions, warn researchers at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. These include hypoglycaemia, a sudden drop in blood sugar, confusion, hallucinations and paranoia.

There’s very little evidence that suggests the drugs can treat COVID-19 infection

In fact, the antimalarials may even make symptoms more severe, despite ‘optimism, and even enthusiasm’ that they are the solution, says Dr David Juurlink.” And they have the cheek to criticise natural oils last time I looked –  nobody dies from them.”

Why the sunshine could be just what’s needed to help fight the Coronavirus…

a5b6bfa9-0e8c-4548-a953-deba3d908a50This sunshine we’re experiencing could make a huge difference to your health and fighting the coronavirus. Many parts of the UK are having sunshine now, so the advice from Natural Elements is – get out there and absorb the sun. 

Why?

Well the coronavirus hates the sun… it kills it as does fresh air. Did you know that during the great flu epidemic of 1918, that the soldiers with flu, who were temporarily housed in tents in fields all recovered, but out of those in the hospitals, nearly half died.

So what does the sun do.?

Well, just 20mins on bare skin produces the most important vitamin of all… vitamin D. NO SUNBLOCK. NO SPF why? Read more

if you are using our oils then they will protect you and indeed even hold onto and lock in the vitamin D which needs to be on you for a minimum of 20mins.

Stocks

We have stocks of the anti-viral hand wash and anti-virus shower gels but they are getting low and when they are gone, that’s it.

Getting replacement packaging for our recycled and recyclable again bottles which come from Italy could be a big problem. Please don’t stockpile but be aware if you’re halfway down, we may have run out by the time you need to order.

Why does washing with antiviral shower gels matter?

When you are in the enclosed space of the shower the molecules of the anti-viral shower gels basically get absorbed and go up your nose, from there they travel into the lungs etc and because they are therapeutic grade ie, not aroma oils they are able to penetrate virus shell and make it explode.

So my recommendation and what I’m doing is showering morning and at night .. a double whammy of the anti-viral shower gels as well as the oils on the skin, which act on you all day, as a bodyguard.

3 things you can do to protect you from coronavirus…

This is a useful article to read to discover what to do to prevent Coronavirus and what’s a waste of time. Find out which hand washes work and which don’t. The high alcohol content gels and soaps can lead to excessive dryness and skin cracking, which can let virueses in… Read on.

1. Keep yourself healthy

Boosting your immune system by keeping yourself is the best way to avoid catching this virus.

Eating healthily and not using synthetic chemical skin products are two of the best ways to do this. Did you know that the many unhealthy chemicals are in shower gels… shampoos… lotions… creams? Even sunblocks put stress on your immune system. If there’s any sunshine get out in it and top up your vital Vitamin D levels.

2. Essential oils can and do penetrate the shell of viruses (like alcohol)

For essential oils to work against viruses, they need to on or around the cells they are trying to protect, critically, they need to be a therapeutic unadulterated version and not simply aroma oils.

Our products are full of therapeutic grade essential oils them but we don’t use harsh synthetic chemicals which avoids putting your immune system under pressure, instead, our product actually strengthen the immune system!

To read more about how essential oils affect viruses,  read this article in Science Direct

a5b6bfa9-0e8c-4548-a953-deba3d908a50

3. East more plants! Boost your immune system and benefit your health with extra vitamins. All our body and face oils have been shown by a university testing centre to have a huge amount of concentrated plant vitamins and benefits for health. As an extra boost, get on the cider vinegar shots check out our ‘well-being’ range.

So what are you wasting your time with?

1. Essential oil burners or vaporisers: any benefits of the essential oil are lost in the air, plus many vaporising oils are merely aroma oils and have no therapeutic benefit at all!

2. Hand sanitisers: Professor John Oxford, a Virologist at Queen Mary’s School of Medicine says he always uses our type of Luxury Handwash after discovering studies on the dangers of using ‘medically prescribed hand sanitisers and gels. Scientists have warned that using high alcohol content gels and soaps can lead to excessive dryness and skin cracking because of the high levels of petrochemicals in them. This cracking can leave the body vulnerable to viruses entering through the cracked skin. Many anti-virus sanitisers are useless they are anti-bacterial compounds and are therefore powerless against viruses such as cornavirus.

‘Flu cases double in a week and are 10 times higher than last year as winter crisis hits’ says NHS… How can you avoid it ?

Deck the halls with boughs of bacteria. Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Did you know that real Christmas trees bring real bacteria with them?

After suffering from a sore throat, fatigue and horrendous cough virus, earlier this autumn, I still don’t feel like it’s completely gone. A few weeks later and up it comes again… a really sore throat, fever and dreadful ‘snotty’ symptoms, but not such a bad cough…

I think it’s now out of my system but just in case it reappears and you’re feeling the same way, I’ve read this article from Natural Elements and wanted to share it with you…

216f8a32-2b13-4c08-ab18-b458a3140398

Finally, winter is upon us…

Tis the season for all manner of ailments and viruses to take hold, just in time for Christmas…

Let Natural Elements share with you some of the ways you can protect yourselves and stack the odds in favour of staying healthy.

1. Viruses just seem to get worse every year

There is a virulent strain in the USA and Australia at the moment which is making its way to the UK, brought largely by visitors, so what do you do?

Modern medicine is unable to cope with these horrid germs, antibiotics are useless against them but there is hope, nature has gifted us all an effective defence in the guise of essential oils, all too often misunderstood, they are shown to destroy these viruses as they can penetrate the molecule, wiping them out.

So this is where The Natural Elements anti-bacterial Shower gels, Hand washes, Face and Body Oils really can act as your guardian angel. By using them daily you’ll have Essential oils around you and on you to actively fight against the little blighters your very own force field … remember prevention is always better than cure.

Screenshot 2019-11-12 at 12.57.14

All you need to do is Shower or Bath with them, and then apply the facial oils and/or body oils to give you the maximum protection.

Don’t forget to use Natural Elements anti-bacterial Luxury Hand Wash every time you go to the bathroom.

Hands spread germs, so kill’em off before they get the chance to multiply

 

 

2. Christmas Trees

Xmastree

Did you know that if you opt for a real one, it’ll be covered in bacteria, so when you bring it into your lovely warm house, the tree dries out and the bugs go air born and yes you and your family breathe them in. That’s why so many people are ill over Christmas.  So what to do, well, take the Natural Elements Luxury Hand Wash and simply mix a few pumps with water in a spray container and spritz the tree (before lights). This will kill off the majority of bacteria and hey presto healthy air, healthy house.. PS: It doesn’t damage the tree at all.

3. Alcohol: We drink more of it at this time of year than any other …so what can you do?

cocktailsWell, super evidence shows you can flush it out and the liver regenerates, so just what can you drink to help it on its way?  Real Coffee has shown huge benefits towards this and of course, a little routine of ACV apple cider vinegar with  turmeric powder in a fruit juice, does the same thing. Taken every morning, it also gives a super boost to the immune system, (you can get the vinegar on our web site. PS: It’s also said to help control weight.

 

 

4. Finally, the one thing Natural Elements staff get asked about most is “how do I protect my skin from the winter weather?”

clothesIt’s simple really, especially when you go out and the skin’s exposed to the winter elements, just up the amount of cream you use, or opt for the Rejuvenating Face Cream on top of your facial oil. This gives a little extra coating to the skin. (just like wearing an extra layer of clothes for added warmth).

Don’t forget – you can buy our Xmas Gift Sets on our website. Just follow the highlighted links in the text above the Natural Elements products to take you to the Natural Elements shop.

How to avoid flu and stay healthy this winter

Screenshot 2018-12-12 at 12.57.42When I read this article by By John Hamilton, Bio-Gerontologist& Dermatologist from Essentially Yours about how to avoid winter flu, it made a lot of sense. Natural remedies along with some straightforward, sensible steps that our grandmothers would have known…

As the UK braces itself for the annual Winter flu outbreak, protect yourself by surrounding and absorbing the power of botanicals.

The strain of the flu virus that exists this year is probably the worse we’ve seen & it seems to be getting worse each year. The power of Essential Oils, used properly, can dispel & destroy this threat.

You can build up resistance with Vital Oils which contain Vitamins A, B1, B2, B5, B6, C, D, E, Magnesium, Copper, Iron, Amino Acids Sterols, Pantothenic Acid, Lecithin & Folic Acid, all of which are virus inhibition & cell protection.

Essential Oils of Therapeutic grade are the key, they are not like the aroma oils you buy in the shops for the smells. Ours bring order to cells & tissue, dispel bacteria & infection whilst stimulating repair. All of this just from our Shower gels & oils, especially the body oils which we recommend applying after the shower!

Influenza Viruses enter the cell membranes and spread throughout the body, therapeutic grade essential oils make the viruses collapse before it can go on to cause havoc, even using our powerful hand wash with essential oils means you are not passing it around on door handles etc

Read the full article to gain the top tips and Essentially Yours suggestions for staying healthy this Winter: https://essentially-yours.co.uk/blog/avoiding-flu-staying-healthy-this-winter/

  • Every morning enjoy a glass of fresh orange juice or grapefruit juice with Turmeric in it.
  • If the sun is out, enjoy it! It may be cold outside but absorbing just 10 minutes of sunlight on the face can boost your immune system and get you some much needed vitamin D.
  • Wash your hands as regularly as you can! We do of course recommend our anti-ageing & anti-viral hand wash for this, it will prevent any germs or viruses spreading and there will be no drying of the skin!
    If you’re more of a bath person in the winter time, add a couple of drops of Essentially Yours Reviving Body Oil. 
  • Pick your alcohol wisely! festive season but always try to opt for good quality alcohol.

Most human ailments stem from infections and inflammation. The healthy chemicals in nature can combat these…

“I believe Essentially Yours products are much much more than anti ageing, 100% harsh chemical-free skincare & toiletries…”  Ceri Rundle

247e343d-0cf7-4ddf-b18f-8e129eccbcd2It has just been announced that the most famous brand of baby products (Johnson & Johnson Ltd.) has led to USA courts awarding £4 billion in damages, to 22 women, who suffered ovarian cancer, as a result of using  Johnson’s baby powder. 

Yet Johnson & Johnson  is still the most popular brand used by mums… That might be because at times in our lives, we’re just too busy and weighted in tradition to take on new information. However after suffering cancer of the pituitary gland, I believe it’s really worth taking the time to consider absolutely everything that you put into your body, hair and skin.

Essentially Yours started out 20 years ago

Essentially Yours were the very first company not to use harsh chemicals like parabens, synthetic colours and harsh chemicals. I was delighted when I found I could use natural products on my skin and now recent medical discoveries are proving that natural ingredients are a much safer way to treat your body and your skin.

8cc30afa-ae80-487c-a71c-ec427d20b3ab

On 12 July 2018, New Scientist ran a very worrying article about a new superbug  

Mycoplasmas Genitalium has been around since the eighties, however, the main worry is that antibiotics are almost non-effective on Mycoplasma anymore.

Now, certain essential oils have shown in animal studies to be anti-Mycoplasma and 4 out of the 5 named  are used in products like Essentially Yours Number 6 Body Oil and our Peppermint Shower Gel

The Interstitium

This important organ has been newly discovered in the human body and previously missed. The Interstitium is just beneath the top layer of skin and is a body-wide interconnecting meshwork between the blood vessels, Could this be why Essentially Yours products are having such an impact on human health and wellbeing? Because all the good nutrients in Essentially Yours products get in through the skin and are distributed by the interstitium?

f5b6d230-8a6c-4014-a9ea-68927cd2fee5

So next time you are in the shower or applying our oils etc… be aware that a lot more could be happening from Essentially Yours products than you think. 

It’s the healthy chemicals in nature that prolong health and life, fight infections and combat inflammation – the main cause of human ailments today.

Could that be why so many people who use Essentially Yours products, report back to say just how healthy they are?
