Now formulated with Organic Totarol!

Totarol is an excellent all-natural anti-bacterial preservative extracted from recycled Podocarpus totara heartwood using a special extraction process.

This native tree of New Zealand is known to live up to 1000 years. After about 200 years of growth, it develops a strong anti-bacterial substance which acts as a defense mechanism to protect the tree. Developers have invented a process to capture these properties for use in cosmetics.

Totarol has no taste and very minimal aroma. The substance has been extensively tested at independent laboratories to demonstrate bioactivity, safety and product composition. In addition to Totarol’s potent anti-bacterial activity, it also possesses anti-oxidant and therapeutic properties.

Mixing with Flower Essences

Self-Heal Creme has a universal quality that makes it an excellent matrix for many different flower essence combinations. The wide-mouth glass jar of Self-Heal Creme conveniently supports custom preparations, tailored to your needs. We suggest no more than three to four essences in an individualized combination. Be sure to label your jar, as you may want to create several different mixtures. We recommend using 20 drops of flower essence stock per 50 g / 2 oz of creme. It is ideal to stir the mixture with a wooden stick for at least three minutes, alternating clockwise and counter-clockwise motions, and ending with a clockwise motion.

Some Suggested Combinations

Please note: None of the combinations suggested below are meant to replace qualified treatment of diagnosed medical illness. Flower essences work on a more subtle level, helping to resolve issues within the mental-emotional realm which may also affect the physical body. Although the flower essences are commonly taken internally, they can also be applied topically and absorbed through the skin. Topical application seems to be most effective in those cases where there is a clear mind-body component.

Emergency Situations and All-Purpose Health Care

Add Arnica, Red Clover, and the Healing Herbs Five-Flower Formula to Self-Heal Creme for a highly potent first-aid remedy. Arnica essence summons the forces of the Higher Self, while the Red Clover flower essence dispels the panic and hysteria that often accompanies emergency situations. Supporting these essences is Self-Heal, which works immediately to bring about a strong recuperative response in the etheric body. You may want to make a batch of this creme for your first-aid kit, and a liquid dosage bottle of the same combination, giving you both internal and external emergency aid.

Sore Joints, Muscle Tension, and Cramps

In addition to a good massage with an appropriate oil, you can lightly apply Self-Heal Creme to affected areas. Add Dandelion essence to disperse contracted, overly tense muscles, and Cayenne to bring catalytic warmth to such areas, helping to move "stuck" energy through the body. Add Chamomile essence and Mugwort Flower Oil to this combination for menstrual cramps, and rub over the uterine area.

Using Self-Heal Creme with Essential Oils

Aromatherapists are reporting extraordinary results by mixing the Self-Heal Creme with essential oils. The natural ingredients and neutral aroma of this creme make it an ideal base for creating custom aromatherapeutic applications. The following are a few outstanding uses reported by practitioners. (Amounts given are for the 50g / 1.7 oz jar of Self-Heal Creme - please extend or modify for more or less creme.)

Heart Balm: Blend 4-5 drops of pure Rose oil or 12 drops of Rose Oil Blend, and 4 drops of California Wild Rose and Borage flower essences. Apply nightly to the heart area with gentle massage. It helps to open the heart, to ease restriction, pain, or grief felt within the heart.

Emotional Release: Blend approximately 8 drops of Chamomile essential oil, 6 drops of Yarrow essential oil and several drops of Orange oil, with about 1/3 ounce of St. John's Wort oil. Massage into the stomach and solar plexus areas nightly with "figure eight" massage strokes. This helps to release excessive emotions stored in the stomach and solar plexus and can be helpful for digestive disturbances also.

Self-Heal Flower Essence General Information

Self-Heal is an excellent choice for beginning your personal wellness program. It enhances other flower essences and therapeutic programs, acting as a catalyst in the journey to mind-body health.  Self-Heal Flower Essence is especially indicated for those who have lost belief in their own capacity to be well, or who have abdicated this inherent responsibility to healers or others. It is a very beneficial remedy for those who face great healing challenges, whether physical, mental, or spiritual.  The central teaching of Self-Heal is to enable the Self to affirm and to draw from the deep wellspring of life, toward true recovery and restoration. The name "Self-Heal" is perhaps its own best affirmation, since all healing depends on an inner commitment to be well. No variety of outer measures and techniques can bring about healing (physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual), if there is not a quickening from within the individual, a motivation to seek and affirm the wholeness of life.

Use Self-Heal Flower Essence:

As an excellent introductory remedy to flower essence therapy, awakening one's inner sense of self-development and understanding of wellness.

As a good integrating remedy in nearly any flower essence formula, helping to address and focus the core healing issues of self-awareness and inner commitment to change.

As an adjunct to any healing journey, especially when one feels overwhelmed by information or options, and needs to be more directly in touch with inner values and choices.

For individuals who have a wide variety of psychosomatic ailments, or who continually seek treatment from many different practitioners, but lack an inner confidence in their own ability to become well, and avoid taking responsibility for the inner shifts which are needed for true health.

For a great number of special situations: children who are recuperating, elderly persons with difficult life situations, ailing animals, or plants that are prone to disease or stress.
