Science says it only takes one cell anywhere in the body to control and affect every other cell.
Flower essences can affect cells relieving stress and anxiety creating harmony and wellbeing within one cell and that cell has the ability to control all other cells. That´s powerful “That´s Emotional Rescue”
The human cell is the basic structure and functional unit of all the organisms within the body when you define cell properties you are in fact defining the properties of life (Elaine N Marieb Human Anatomy & Physiology). The activity of one cell depends on the collective activity of all cells.
Essences are extracted from plants and flowers in laboritory conditions as to create the purest quality product.
What are flower and plant essences?
Flower essences are energetic blueprints for wellbeing. They are powerful catalysts correcting imbalances relieving stress and anxiety; they harmonise and unlock human potential. They work on cellular memory patterns restoring wellbeing and inner harmony.
In the 1920’s Edward Bach pioneered 38 flower remedies which are now used as a healing modality worldwide. Dr Edward Bach was a scientist and bacteriologist who invested all his life’s earnings back into the research and development of finding out how flowers can be used for medical purposes. He broke away from conventional medicine when the medical facility could not grasp the easy cost effective and simple method of flower-based medicine.
Dr Bach based his findings using clinical experiments including a in-depth study of herbal and homeopathic “Materia Medica” (a term for the documentation of the study of plants and their properties used by Herbalists or Homeopath’s) Bach recognised that flowers operate by involving the use of bio-electromagnetic energy processed from fresh plants which became photo-electrically energised by exposure from the sun.
Flower essences and plant matter carry an electrical signal/shape that fits perfectly into the body for sustenance. DNA controls what happens within cells (DNA is our blueprint for all cellular activity) DNA sends a message to RNA to decode and for accepting micronutrients and energy matter from ingested substances including what goes on our skin. The cell reads this material or substance as if it were a kind of digital message and uses it to repair and correct or sustain life. Science has yet to devise a machine to measure the actual signal cells transmitted but we have proven we can figure out some of the electrical workings of the cell.
A variety of scientific studies have demonstrated that by using flower essences stress has been alleviated and the body produces healthier cells.
Essences that are extracted from plants and flowers have the same molecular structure as human DNA.
There have been breakthroughs in physics and biology as well as clinical trials showing the effectiveness of flower therapy. The medical profession is starting to take notice and it is getting harder to ignore the findings and usage for flower essences. Healthcare workers and professionals all over the world are turning to flower essences for their simplicity, safety and high success rate.
Flower essences have been used by many cultures long before Dr Bach’s discovery. Flower and plant dew has been collected for generations in order to make essences for their powerful healing properties. The Northern Druids, Americans and Aboriginals used sacred springs and wells holding powerful natural essence infused water for healing. Indigenous people have used flower essences to heal endless ailments for thousands of years.
In New Zealand the Maori people have used native flowers for healing emotional imbalances and physical injuries. Modern research has continued to develop and the application of essences for specific conditions and emotional issues are now widely used.
Flower essences from different countries are now popping up in New Zealand and used in combination with our native flora which is fantastic. As a point of interest, after learning all about herbs and flowers it is a known fact among herbalists that it is best to use the plants and flowers of the country you live in, as plants and flowers grow in that country for the reasons and conditions of that country and for the lives of the population of that country, especially including the plants, weeds and flowers on your own doorstep. Dr Bach was indeed a man well ahead of his time and has left a living legacy for human kind. Emotional Rescue Skincare uses New Zealand grown flower and plant essences.
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are aromatic plants or flowers that contain essential oils having a complex mixture of constituents, which are mainly hydrocarbons and oxygenated compounds, different plants and plant parts have different constituents.
For example Lavender (Lavendula augustifolia) which is one of the oils used in Emotional Rescue Body Lotion products, has a chemical constituent composition of a-pinene, limomene, cineole, cis-ocimene, trans-ocimene, octanone, camphor, linalool, linalyl aceatate, terpinene, lavendulyl acetate.
All of which give it’s Analgesic (reducing pain) antidepressant, antiseptic, antiviral, carminative (calms digestion) cytophylactic (protects cells) decongestant, hypo-tensive (lowers high blood pressure) nervine (tones and strengthens the nervous system) rubifacient (relieves congestion and inflammation of deeper tissue) sedative (relaxes and reduces nerve conduction) sudorific (promotes sleep) vulnerary (quickens the healing of wounds) bactericide, antispasmodic, cholagogue (stimulates the release of bile from the gallbladder) cicatrisant (wound healing) properties, which is quite an impressive list of chemicals but these all together give lavender its signature for a number of conditions.
By the way it is interesting to know that a plant or flower signature is a name used for matching certain conditions that a plant or flower is best suited and can be recognised by smell, taste, shape, structure and size including properties and constituents.
Lavender has been widely researched and when used correctly can reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, aid the nervous system, help depression, headache, insomnia, nervous tension, and is very normalising. The use of lavender in a sudden crisis situation can ease fear and calm down the nervous system and promote strength to cope.
Lavender treats all types of pain it has been the focus of many trials and is used in many hospital wards in Europe as a vaporiser to dispel anxiety and an alternative to orthodox drugs to help patients sleep. (Unfortunately we are a bit behind for the use of essential oils in NZ hospitals). Lavender has both a sedative and tonic action on the heart and helps lower blood pressure, great for fatigue and has very low toxicity being one of the safest oils to use on children. Emotional Rescue Skincare uses only 100% pure essential Lavender oil (Lavendula augustifolia).
Sweet Almond Oil is highly nutritious and has been shown to be twice as effective than the better known olive oil in the reduction of cholesterol/cellulite.
Why no parabens?
The Estrogen and Paraben Connection
We need to be concerned about what goes on our skin just as much as we do about what we eat and drink. It is a known medical fact that the hormone called estrogen stimulates breast cancer and we also know that parabens are chemicals that can mimic estrogens. Which means that these paraben chemicals can mimic our own bodies hormones placing extra burden on the Endocrine System parabens are known as endocrine disruptors they are transported into the body via absorption through the skin and hair follicles from using personal care products.
While the skin is a protective barrier to our organs it is still very permeable, often referred to as the third kidney we know that we absorb product through our skin, so it´s important we feed it with products that are safe and nourishing with out chemicals that mimic hormones.
The trouble is that these synthetic chemicals work by disrupting the body´s own ability to produce adequate quantities of hormones (when the body is given synthetic chemicals it gets lazy and stops producing them on its own) this disrupts the body´s normal hormonal pathways. One single chemical can affect many parts of the endocrine system. Just as one cell can effect the whole body.
The endocrine system regulates every function of the body. It consists of the thyroid, pituitary, adrenal glands, the pancreas, the ovaries and the testes, all linked to the hypothalamus in the brain. The hypothalamus is like a computer sending signals to glands providing instructions for creating hormones.
Surplus estrogen and other hormones get stored in the body´s fatty tissues which don’t get flushed away with water, they accumulate over time and it is now recognised as a factor in the rise of breast cancer, Non-Hodgkin´s lymphoma, Thyroid problems, Cancer, and Liver disease which have been linked to the constant exposure of synthetic estrogens.

Stress and the Cortisol Effect
Cortisol is a hormone produced and secreted by the adrenal glands and has many functions including the involvement of glucose metabolism, the regulation of blood pressure, insulin release for blood sugar maintenance and the inflammatory responses of the body.
Cortisol is secreted into the bloodstream when we are stressed its nickname is “the stress hormone” because it secretes higher levels during the fight and flight response when something happens that puts the body on alert. Cortisol is responsible for several stress-related changes in the body.
Cortisol provides a burst of energy for survival; the sympathetic nervous system is mobilised. Blood sugar levels rise and pain tolerance lowers. In this response to stress it’s important that the body can return to normal when the stressful event is over.
Unfortunately the body reacts to stress so often because of our fast paced lifestyles and the stress response is activated so often the body doesn’t always have a chance to return to normal. This results in higher more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream which have been shown to have negative effects,such as decreased thyroid function, high blood pressure, slow wound healing, memory loss slow thinking, the fuzzies of the mind, decreased muscle tissue, lowered immunity increased abdominal fat that can cause heart attack, strokes, high cholesterol and the onset of type 2 diabetes to name a few.
Stress and cortisol secretion varies among individuals and people react differently to different kinds of stress. Studies have shown that people who secrete higher levels of cortisol in response to stress tend to eat more food and food that is higher in carbohydrates than people who secrete less cortisol. This most probably contributes to the excess fat on the abdomen and causes trouble loosing weight gained, while others loose weight and have trouble re-gaining weight. If you’re more sensitive to stress it’s a good idea to start finding techniques and practices that will lower stress levels.
Some great and cost effective ways are Weight Rescue Body lotion. Exercise, take a short walk on a beach, listen to soothing music, yoga techniques are very helpful to unwind and relax, gentle massage, eating healthy, plenty of dark green vegetables, lean meat, fish, fruit, dried fruit, whole foods nuts and seeds. Make sure you have a supply of healthy snacks available and of course a tube of Emotional Rescue Body Lotion.
What are the emotional symptoms of stress?
Being or feeling alone unhappy feeling depressed, have anxiety or panic attacks palpitations and dizziness feelings of not being good enough, feeling dissatisfied with life are all part of being stressed. It may feel you are difficult to live with affecting others in the family or your living situation. People under stress are often irritable irrational or angry. Stress can affect your work performance making you unable to concentrate or make rational decisions. You most probably feel tired and lack interest in many things including sex.
Stress may not always directly cause illness but it can trigger allergies, asthma, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, psoriasis and hives.
The big thing to remember there is always HELP somewhere. Here on this site we are offering flower essences based body lotions helping reduce daily stress so you can participate and enjoy the life that you are entitled to.
How flower essences work?
Flower essences are recognised for their electro-magnetic energy which works on the mind and body by a resonance vibration quality and electrical pattern for a therapeutic outcome. Flower essences work on a purely energetic level being the blueprint for rebalance of the whole person physically and emotionally and are enormously powerful catalysts releasing negative energy that holds us back from living happy and fulfilling lives.
Flower and plant essences help us deal with stress, anxiety, upsets and change in a supportive way also ridding us of old emotional and mental imbalances in a gentle effective manor. Some people respond quickly to the use of flower essences in body lotions while others can take longer even months, even so the more you use the Emotional Rescue Body Lotion the emotional changes will become apparent.
Flower and plant essences work in subtle way on a deep cellular memory level. The cellular memory is still there but a definite healing has taken place. The pain behind a memory heals. Quite often the user does not recognise the transition for some time, it all depends on how long and deep a problem is or has been going on for.
Lavender when used correctly can reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, aid the nervous system, help depression, ease headaches, insomnia and nervous tension.
The skin houses tiny sensory receptors that provide information about our external environment like the temperature the pressure of objects and the presence of dangerous substances, The skin is about as thick as a paper towel and protects our entire body and internal organs including being closely connected to the nervous system. The skin often receives very little respect it is pliable and tough and takes a constant punishment from outside stimulus. Because of the skins fat content it works as a shock absorber from objects and an insulator to stop heat and water loss.
Layers of cells are being constantly pushed up to the surface by the time the skin reaches the surface the skin layers are dead and rubs off. Excessive wind and sun can cause the skin layers to become damaged thicken and alter the DNA of skin cells which can lead to skin problems and even skin cancer. Including more serious disease within the body because cells affect cells.
Even though the skin acts as a barrier to the out side world and is dead when reaching the surface it is still permeable and substances and free radicals can and do penetrate which can cause health problems. So it pays to feed skin with good ingredients that will support the skin and keep its integrity in tact, keeping it hydrated. Keeping it soft pliable and a strong.
Using Emotional Rescue Body Lotions you will also notice your skin improving in condition and integrity it will be softer smoother and moisturised while looking younger with a lovely sheen.
Why we do not use these ingredients!
Mineral oil is a large molecule that can clog pores and reduces the skins ability to eliminate toxic waste. Sodium lauryl sulfates are saponins that cause the foaming action in shampoos, they are safer in shampoos because they are rinsed out, they are a known skin irritant and should not be left on the skin, sometimes referred to as SLS and may worsen skin problems in individuals with chronic skin hypersensitivity.
Parabens are esters of para-hydroxybenzoic acid from which the name is derived. Common parabens include methylparaben (E number E218) ethylparaben (E214) propylparaben (E216) butylparaben. Less common parabens include isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, benzylparaben and their sodium salts are becoming increasingly controversial and cause skin irritation and contact dermatitis (contact dermatitis is a localised rash or irritation of the skin caused by contact with a foreign substance) and Rosacea ( rosacea is a chronic condition characterised by facial redness) in individuals something we can all do without.
No animal product policy, we love our animal creatures and can not imagine using any animals for testing ingredients in our products I personally do not believe that we need to manufacture products that need to be tested on animals to see if they are safe, this is a barbaric and out dated practice, and why would you need animal fat in skincare anyway.
