Great products like Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream and many others use the power of “botanicals” to work their magic, and as we are all beginning to learn, it’s good to know what the ingredients on any given product label mean.
Some people automatically think of “botanicals” as botanical prints, the cool illustrations of plants that are usually made for scientific publications, but also look great framed and hanging in the kitchen. But the broad meaning we are looking for is “a substance obtained from a plant and used as an additive.”
Long the province of shamans around the world and today known by the popular moniker of “essential oils”, a curious branch of that history is occupied by the manufacture of gin. By the 17th century, hundreds of small Dutch and Flemish distillers had popularized the refinement of malt spirits which were sold in pharmacies and used to treat such medical problems as kidney ailments, lumbago, stomach ailments, gallstones and gout.
Popular botanicals that serve as flavoring and aromatic agents for gin include juniper, anise, caraway, coriander, citrus elements such as lemon and bitter orange peel, anise, angelica, orris root, licorice root, cassia bark (cinnamon) and almond.
Essential oils have become a hot topic of late as an “essential” component of aromatherapy, massage oil, skincare lotions, baths, steam inhalation and a plethora of medicinal remedies for many conditions that may have once fallen into the category of home remedies. Several large companies have geared up to distribute large quantities of very high-grade oils so that the basic ingredients are available for all.
In conjunction with the unique healing properties of Manuka Honey, Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream uses Shea butter; aloe vera; oat flour; and the essential oils of peppermint, nutmeg, clove, lavender and black pepper, as well as and flower essences of self-heal, oak, sunflower, pine and vervain, in a proprietary formula to maximize the benefits of each individual ingredient. There are no parabens, dyes or fragrances, and no animal products or testing.

Manuka Honey also relieves the pain and itch of psoriasis and other skin conditions. Applied to skin after a shower or bath as a daily maintenance, conditions will improve for the health and youthful appearance of skin and to heal unwanted skin conditions.

We are constantly exposed to thousands of toxins coming from all directions: the air we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat and the immediate environment in which we live and work. Dr. Pentti Nupponen, in Halifax, Pennsylvania, who uses Bentonite clay in his practice, states, “The question is how to detoxify effectively, safely and economically, because the process needs be done repeatedly.”
