Our skin radiates emotions of love through its sweet vibration, stands the hair up on the back of our necks to signal the anxiety within, and shrivels up to communicate the body’s dire need for hydration. It has the ability to nourish, hydrate, and restore our body, mind, and spirit through its discerning pores. It is our skin that cleanses the body of toxic accumulations by unapologetic expression of rashes, infections, and tiny droplets of stinky perspiration. Our skin photosynthesizes the mystical nutrients of the sun and the colors of our diet into an amber glow.
The largest organ in our body, referred to as our third lung in Chinese medicine because of its porous ability to breath oxygen into our system, the skin is our shield of armor, the external physiology of the body’s immune system, and first line of defense of our being. Can we think of a more important organ to our body than our skin? Do we take it for granted? How much do we love our skin? Can we show it? The more we intentionally give love to anything, anyone, or any idea, with unwavering devotion, the more vibrant and fulfilling it inevitably becomes in our lives.
As I practice my daily skin lubrication rituals, I experience the balance that skin awareness can bring into my life. I witness in awe as my face thirstily drinks the variety of Kauai Farmacy Serums, my feet become supple like a baby from a consistent Comfrey Salve foot massage, and my hips learn to let go of toxic physical and emotional blockages with the help of our Botanical Body Butter.
When I want to hydrate my facial epidermis with just a few drops of pure Hawaiian essence, I reach for my precious Calendula Yarrow Serum. The Soothe Serum is the ideal massage oil and moisturizer in one, from face to hair to nails to body; and when it comes to everyday protection and moisturization of my skin, I like to alternate between my Healing Beauty Balm and Botanical Body Butter. The Body Butter is certainly more sensual with its Cacao butter base, but the Healing Beauty Balm clearly demonstrates the tremendous skin regeneration and beautification powers of the Calendula flower. The Sensual Serum is just that, sensual, and so much more as a precious facial therapy. The Comfrey Noni Serum may be the most universal of our skin products as it can be used for deep bone and ligament therapy to transformative facials. The Kava Serum provides a deep body relaxation treatment while the Calm Serum bestows the light energy of Tulsi, The Elixir of Life. Utilizing our Kauai grown Salves and Serums to heal and nourish our skin simultaneously lubricates our muscles, joints, tendons, and bones.
The lubrication practice is vital for the body to achieve optimal physical performance. There is no machine in the world that does not require consistent lubrication, especially as machines age with time. The quality, purpose, and dedication of the lubrication practice will drive the performance of the machine. As human beings, we are the most sophisticated species on the planet, so we must be devoted to our lubrication practice for optimal human performance. And as our skin awareness rises, the lubrication practice becomes easier, more graceful, and will ultimately achieve holistic healing results that pleasantly delve way deeper than our skin.
