Sage Purifying Bath Essence
Refreshes and Cleanses
With carefully selected essential oils, Sage Purifying Bath Essence offers warmth and keeps out the cold – a real blessing in the winter months. It also refreshes after sport and physical exercise and has a deodorising effect. Sage foot baths revive tired, swollen feet. Used regularly, they regulate feet inclined to perspire and help make the skin soft and smooth. Compressing and hydrating with Sage Purifying Bath Essence also helps care for an oily or blemished skin.

Usage
Add 1-3 capfuls of Sage Purifying Bath Essence into the stream of running water as the bathtub fills. For foot baths,add 1-2 caps of Sage Bath to comfortably hot (about 40°C) water. Ideally, soak feet twice a week for 10 to 15 minutes each time.

Tips
a) When used regularly, sage foot baths help reduce hardened skin, leaving your feet beautifully soft.
b) Deodorising Foot Cream supports Sage Bath’s sweat regulating effect. For extremely sweaty feet, we also recommend using Silk Body Powder.

Spruce Warming Bath Essence
Comforts and invigorates.

If you’ve ever walked through a pine forest you will have noticed negative thoughts melt away to be replaced with a sense of peace and clarity. The intensely relaxing and revitalising Norwegian Spruce supports your circulation, helps to relieve muscle tension and has a calming, nerve-strengthening effect. Spruce Bath Essence helps to clear airways and aids deep breathing, so it’s also a perfect choice if you or the kids have a cold. Jojoba oil nourishes and moisturises your skin.

Usage
Add several capfuls of Spruce Warming Bath Essence into the stream of running water as the bathtub fills.

Tips
a) Use in the bath or in your basin water for compressing and hydrating your facial skin prior to cleansing.
b) Spruce Bath Essence has such an uplifting aroma it may also be used for home or office, pour a little into a bowl and add hot water for the aroma to disperse. Perfect aroma for Christmas time too!

Bath Essences & Compressing

An aromatic compress to relax and revive.

We also recommend to compress and hydrate your face prior to cleansing. This relaxes the skin and softens the walls of the pores to achieve deep cleansing. The skins own functions are also stimulated. A cool compress applied to the skin after cleansing closes the pores, expelling any remaining impurities, leaving you with a clearer, softer skin.  Make compress and hydration part of your daily skin care rituals.  Fay from our Discovery Centre Rozelle store says “Using a compress brings life to the skin, you’ll notice the difference with your cleansing.”

The Dr. Hauschka Organic Cotton Compress is large, please don’t cut it, as the many layers once folded help to retain warmth.

1)         Fold the compress in half and half again.
2)         Both folds to be length wise, not square.
3)         Place folded Compress into the basin of Bath Essence infused water.
4)         Squeeze excess water from the Compress.
5)         Place firstly under the chin, then wrap the face and press.
6)         Repeat twice, now your skin is prepared for using Cleansing Cream or Soothing Cleansing Milk.

Winter Skin Care

Screen Shot 2015-07-02 at 12.29.10 pm

Dryness and dehydration is a prime reason for premature wrinkles and lines so it’s imperative we protect our skin from this condition.

Dryness: lack of oil
Caused by ageing and the slowing down of sebum production, genetics and a drying outdoor environment.

Dehydration: lack of water
Caused by not drinking enough water and air conditioning/heating indoor environment. Air travel is extremely dehydrating.

We often see both conditions presenting in the same skin.

Quince Seed Extract helps your skin to retain moisture
Quince Seed Extract helps your skin to retain moisture

So what’s the solution to winter dryness and dehydration?

Hydrating Mask is our ultimate winter skin fix, twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, around your eye contour too, and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed.

Tip: If your skin is extremely dry you may also use Hydrating Mask as your ‘day cream’ for a month or until condition improves.

This blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple.

– Quince seed extract replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture
– Nourishing almond, avocado, olive and jojoba oils hydrate the outer layer of skin
– Rose wax and organic shea butter soothe and protect

Skin healers and anti-oxidants are Vitamins A, C & E - all found in this blend

Another winter skin solution
The skin healers and antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E, and the optimum choice when topically applying these vitamins is when they come in the form of the whole plant extract, as opposed to isolated and/or synthetic chemicals.

Rosehip is a rich source of vitamin C and Wheatgerm is a rich source of vitamin E, both found in Rose Day Cream formulation. Mix with a couple of drops of Clarifying Day Oil to skin still moist from Toner. That glorious orange colour comes from Wild Carrot Extract, a rich source of provitamin A.

There you have it, a potent antioxidant and protective blend for cold weather!

Mask Treatment Tip:
Firming, Moisturising & Hydrating Mask Blend
For a dry and/or dehydrating skin that also needs firming:

• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum including eye contour area as an ‘eye mask’ as well
• Then apply Hydrating Mask over the Serum, including eye contour area
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing with a warm, moist cloth just before bedtime

The other blend we recommend is for those that get dry, red, irritated, itchy or flaky skin in winter. You can still do the above Mask Treatment Blend, but use Soothing Mask instead of Hydrating Mask to strengthen and restore a sensitive skin. Regenerating Serum is also formulated for a sensitive skin.

Do you need to alter your day care with the Seasons?

Yes, that may well be the case.  We have many customers using cooling Quince Day Cream or matte Rose Day Cream Light in the warmer months and change to more protective and warming Rose Day Cream in the cooler months.  Check in with your skin, see how it’s feeling and certainly change to a more protective day care if need be.

I use Regenerating Serum and Regenerating Day Cream during the week which is spent indoors and in the weekend I use Regenerating Serum and Rose Day Cream when I’m more likely to have time outdoors. So even my weekly ritual changes due to my daily environment.

For a dry skin we also recommend Revitalising Day Cream which helps to activate sebaceous glands, even though it’s very light in texture. Some of our customers like to apply Tinted Day Cream or Rose Day Cream over Revitalising Day Cream to provide additional winter time protection.

If Regenerating Day Cream isn’t enough in the cooler seasons then you may switch to using the more rich Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream for your face care as well.

Winter Skin Regime in a nutshell

Rose Day Cream
Foundation

Top winter protective products are Lip Balm and Eye Balm

Dry winter hands?

Tip: Give your hands a once a week Hydrating Mask treatment while you watch a movie! Use Hydrating Hand Cream daily, which deeply moisturises without leaving a greasy residue.

Winter is a hibernating time according to the rhythm of nature. We can’t exactly hibernate, but we can sustain ourselves with warming Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil which is both warming and protective, or my personal favourite, Blackthorn Toning Body Oil which I find warming and strengthening. It also helps me focus when I’m wearing it, getting through one job at a time and tick them off. Blackthorn Elixir has been used for years as a strengthening tonic to assist in the treatment of fatigue or convalescence and for those who are feeling stressed or drained of vitality.

Sometimes you just need a little ‘me time’ and a treat. A warming foot bath, even if it’s only for 10 minutes quiet time, that can still do wonders. Perhaps while you are having your Mask treatment. Choose your Dr. Hauschka Bath Essence aromatics for the benefits you are looking for:

Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence: to help you sleep better and to soothe and calm the nervous system.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence: has positive, cheerful and uplifting qualities and supports clear thinking.

Almond Soothing Bath Essence: quiets the mind, instilling feelings of warmth and comfort. The complex fragrance with almond and orange essential oils is uplifting to the spirit. Especially soothing to dry, sensitive and itchy skin.

Sage Purifying Bath Essence: is known for its refreshing, perspiration-regulating action. It provides a refreshing foot bath after sport and exercise and tired feet are wonderfully refreshed. In the cold months of the year it helps to prevent poor circulation and chills.

Rose Nurturing Bath Essence: with precious rose extracts, envelops the senses in the soft, luxurious scent of dozens of blossoming roses. Feel the exotic care and protection of the queen of all flowers as you bathe in the velvety warmth of this beautiful bath essence.

Deodorants

Make the change to natural and organic Deodorant Sage Mint or Rose if you haven’t already.

Screen Shot 2015-07-03 at 12.56.11 pm

Enjoy winter, it’s time for good books, something creative or crafty, hearty cooking, share a meal with friends, watch a movie and give yourself the best natural and organic skin care to protect from the elements, both indoors and out, remembering to use body products that do so much more than just moisturise your skin, and keep cosy.

Winter Warmers Bath Essences

Frau in Badewanne Flyer Bäder 2005 www.wala.de

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, attention automatically turns inward. Our primitive desires for warmth and security awaken within. Is there anything better than closing the door, submerging yourself in a warm bath and immersing yourself in an aromatic journey to soothe your soul?

Bath Essences
Take a deep breath,
Immerse yourself in the moment
Envelop your body in the essence of
nature and let your mind roam free
Your senses are awakened.

Dr. Hauschka Bath Essences are waiting to softly caress your soul, spirit and body in a warm bath, and take you with them on a sumptuous journey of the senses. Dr. Hauschka’s perfumer, Jörg Zimmermann, has taken inspiration from the scents of Dr. Hauschka body oils, body lotions and body washes to create these individual scents from natural and organic essential oils.

The exotic Rose Nurturing Bath Essence nurtures the soul, simultaneously offering peace and vitality. The composition of almond and avocado oil leaves the skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence provides the skin with caring protection. The aroma of lavender provides calm and clarity and helps you to concentrate on what’s important. In addition to the lavender, moor extract is also at the core of this product, rhythmically processed with extracts of horse chestnut and horsetail.

The complex and luxurious fragrance of Almond Soothing Bath Essence invites you on a sensual journey: from the gentle freshness of the first almond blossoms in spring to the warm sweetness of the almond fruit.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence gently nourishes the skin with sunflower oil, while the lemon and lemongrass activate the skin with their toning effects.

Sage Purifying Bath Essence provides warmth during the cold seasons, but is also refreshing and deodorising. Recommended for post exercise. Perfect for a foot bath also.

Screen Shot 2015-06-18 at 1.22.06 pm

Bath Time Tip:
Apply your favourite Dr. Hauschka Cream Mask (Revitalising, Hydrating, Soothing or Firming) during your bath.

Why did we produce milky formulations for Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence and Rose Nurturing Bath Essence?

Not that many years ago it was uncommon to see Mum’s in the workplace and the pace of life was much slower, however, today’s lifestyle for the majority of women is one of juggling children and work as well as other commitments, and amongst it all attempting to find balance. Our milky formulations are much more protective which provides enhanced support for lifestyle issues today and in the future.

Dispersing
The milky formulations do not disperse as easily in lukewarm water. Pour milky formula Bath Essence into your basin or bath, add hot water to aid dispersion, then add cold water.

Please note: Both Rose Nurturing Bath Essence and Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence are ideal for kid’s bath time as well.

Winter Weather Bath Essence

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 2.14.30 pm

Dr. Hauschka’s answer to cold, wet winter weather limited edition Spruce Warming Bath Essence. Like a walk in a pine forest, calming yet invigorating.

Spruce Warming Bath Essence
Limited Edition 30ml

Autumn and winter have many positive sides – but cold, wet weather often takes the fun out of these seasons. Spending time outdoors can quickly lead to a chill. Unpleasant dampness can penetrate through clothing all the way to the skin. This is the right moment for Spruce Warming Bath Essence from Dr. Hauschka. Slipping into the bath warms the body and soothes the spirit, imparting a sense of well-being.

During the wet and cold seasons of the year, a warm bath sometimes works wonders. After coming in from the cold, you can finally relax and forget the rest of the world for a few moments. Spruce essential oil promotes circulation to the skin and joins with the pleasant heat of the bath water to provide the entire body with intensive and lasting warmth, while jojoba oil gently moisturises the skin. The aromatic bath soothes and relaxes without making you feel tired. The resinous fragrance of spruce needles lets you breathe freely again – providing relief at the time of year when coughs and colds abound.

Tip: Dr. Hauschka Spruce Warming Bath Essence can also be used outside the bath tub. Place a few drops of Spruce Bath Essence in a small bowl of warm water – the fragrance will spread through the entire room and create a special ambience in the wintertime.

Organic castor oil from cultivation project in India

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 2.54.10 pm

Spruce Warming Bath Essence and other Dr. Hauschka products are based on cold-pressed castor oil produced in India. WALA (Dr. Hauschka) has initiated a pioneering agricultural project that supports local people. Only a few years ago, this raw material was not available on the world market in organic quality; as a result, WALA began developing its own solution. The entire castor-bean cultivation and processing chain in India is now organically certified. The seeds are cold pressed, filtered and filled into new, food-safe containers. The premium castor oil is then shipped to Germany by sea. Thanks to the company’s partnership with the Indian suppliers, today WALA’s demand for certified organic castor oil can be completely met.

Dr. Hauschka – Mum, Baby & Child

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 2.28.10 pm

During my baby building stages and for the baby/toddler early years Rose Day Cream nurtured more than just my skin. Keeping up with my daily Dr. Hauschka rituals was my special moment at the beginning and at the end of each day. When applying Rose Day Cream in the morning I would always cup the warmed cream in the palms of my hands around my nose first and take a moment to deeply smell the aromas of organic and biodynamic roses to nurture me. I also remember thinking it felt good knowing when I cuddled my babies that they were only receiving residual Rose Day Cream from my face.

Although I was already a long term Dr. Hauschka customer, this was a time that became a catalyst to change in many areas of habitual shopping. Basically getting rid of all unnecessary chemicals from us, our home, the laundry etc.

During pregnancy body care is particularly important to keep the skin supple, Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn Toning Body Oil supports the skin’s elasticity in weight loss or weigh gain and helps to prevent the appearance of stretch marks. I used Blackthorn Toning Body Oil from 25 weeks while skin was still moist after my morning shower. It’s formula is based on plant extracts, with only a minute amount of essential oils for fragrance. It did the trick! I think we forged an everlasting friendship at that time. I still reach for Blackthorn Toning Body Oil, particularly in autumn and winter when I need it strengthening more than toning effect.

Rose Nurturing Body Cream to keep skin supple, Rose Nurturing Body Oil too, it’s just a matter of personal preference or mix the Oil with the Body Cream for a more intense aromatic experience.

Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil relaxes, soothes and encourages sleep.

Rose Nurturing Bath Essence gives a Cleopatra moment, exotic and nurturing at the same time, in the bath or in your Compress & Hydrate basin water pre facial cleansing. Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence aids relaxation. Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence to refresh and revitalise.

Quince Hydrating Body Milk gives the skin a fresh, firm feeling during pregnancy, as does Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk.

Rapidly tiring and swelling legs in the latter stages of pregnancy gain support from Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic.

A protective cocoon for the child

Only the best is good enough for a child’s tender skin. The rich Dr.Hauschka creams and oils nurture their sensitive skin and envelop the child in a warming and protective cocoon. For the youngest, this warming protection is very important, as they can get cold quickly.

Babies really only need to be bathed in warm water and a muslin cloth; however, Dr.Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Wash with such gentle ingredients from nature is for cleansing if needed.

Our Silk Body Powder containing real silk powder has to be the most exquisite and caring baby body powder there is! Created by combining fine Silk powder, which has anti-bacterial properties and is particularly well tolerated by baby’s skin, Rice starch, Silica and extracts of Gentian, Oak and Sage. Silk Body Powder does wonders for preventing the appearance of nappy rash. In my personal experience, Silk Body Powder was the ONLY product that worked for my daughter’s predisposition to nappy rash.

Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 2.57.45 pm

Tip:  Rose Nurturing Body Oil for gentle and caring baby massage. Just remember to wrap baby in a towel or blanket when lifting in case they’re a little slippery!

Your facial skin care during pregnancy and post natal

Your skin may go through changes as your body has to metabolise hugely increased hormone levels and for many as the baby takes so many nutrients their skin becomes incredibly dry.   Some new Mums will experience break outs, while others find their skin becomes parched dry.

After having my son my skin quite literally went to the pack. It became sore, dry, itchy – awful really. At the time I thought it was due to the fact that he was such a rapacious baby, leaving me short in skin nutrients. Remembering my knowledge, despite chronic lack of sleep and therefore brain fade, I reached for a 28 night treatment of Renewing Night Conditioner which is recommended for any times of transition and post natal certainly is that! Incredibly problem was solved within 4 nights.

Please contact us if you feel you may need to alter your usual Dr. Hauschka skin regime to address a changing skin condition.  We’re always happy to put together a recommended Product Prescription and Skin Care Regime for you. Email discovery@drhauschka.com.au or phone Fay, Manager of the Dr. Hauschka Discovery Store to have a chat through your skin concerns (02) 9818 6119.

We received the below from a Dr. Hauschka customer recently…

“I have used Dr. Hauschka for over 10 years and it’s always worked well for me. When I was expecting our first child last July I looked to see if Dr. Hauschka did a baby range (I’d never needed to look for it before) and  there isn’t. Fortunately, I found several articles with a list of the Dr. Hauschka products I could use on bub so they were placed on my gift list.

The paediatric nurse gave me a tube of D****** with steroids for baby’s face which had acne and the skin was literally peeling off, including inside and behind her ears. I decided to try the Rose Day Cream on her face. I was using it as a nappy change cream. I was concerned it would be too strong for her face but it wasn’t. To my surprise within HOURS patches of dryness had disappeared and within 3 days her skin was once again blooming. I applied it religiously at every nappy change and bub started to smile as I smeared it over her face. At our next weekly visit to the paediatric nurse she was surprised at how much her skin had improved. I told her what I had used and offered her the D****** cream back. Interestingly, the nurse also uses Dr. Hauschka so I am hopeful that she will now recommend parents try Rose Day Cream rather than administering free samples of D******. Within 2 weeks my baby’s skin was completely free of any dryness and acne and has remained so although I no longer use any cream on her skin. She has had perfect skin for 2 months. My tube of Rose Day Cream lasted for 4 months using it as a nappy change cream intermittently (perhaps 5 times per week when redness started to appear but was not sore) and a solid 2 weeks on her face and ears (6-7 times per day). I consider this very good value.

Why am I telling you all this?

Because it’s the sort of information I would have loved to read when I was pregnant and looking for a suitable baby product range. I also use the Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil in her bath. The time frame to cure dry skin, how often it is applied and the expected cost per year are all considerations. The message I have is it’s not expensive to use Rose Day Cream as your primary baby cream. It works and works quickly so little is required. And of course, the most important thing is not subjecting your bundle of joy to those nasties, particularly steroids! And of course, she smells as sweet as a rose 🙂

There’s a lot of organic alternatives out there these days and yes, I have some on my change table that were given as gifts, but I have tried them once and didn’t like the feel of them. I also noticed the redness didn’t disappear after one application, unlike when I use Rose Day Cream.”

Nappy rash problem sorted, email from another happy customer…

“Our 9 month old typically cheerful baby girl had been suffering with nappy rash. It flared up very badly and our little girl was in pain. I consulted our family doctor and was prescribed a mild hydrocortisone to be applied topped with heavy aqueous cream and then thick barrier cream. We were also advised as much ‘nappy off’ time as possible to allow the skin to dry out. The full tube of hydrocortisone was used and the rash had not gone. I was beside myself to see my baby in such pain and felt uneasy about continuing to use steroid creams on such delicate skin. Plus the concept of drying the skin out whilst glooping it in three layers of creams just wasn’t making sense. Having worked with Dr. Hauschka in the past I felt sure there would be something in the range that may help. Silk Body Powder was our saviour! I set aside all the creams and applied just this beautiful powder and the result was almost instant. It dried her skin completely and the raw skin looked immediately less red and soothed. Within a week of use with every nappy change my little girl’s skin was healed. I recommend this product 100%. It’s simply amazing.”

In pregnancy and beyond remember you also require fresh, nutritious food and get plenty of sleep while you can.

As the kids grew I kept finding new uses for Dr. Hauschka products. For minor scratches and scrapes a quick spritz of Clarifying Toner which contains anti-bacterial Echinacea and anti-inflammatory Daisy. I’m a fan of all our Bath Essences and as I used to read to the kids while they were in the bath I also enjoyed the aromatics. The odd patch of dry skin sorted with Rose Day CreamSage Purifying Bath Essence foot bath and Deodorising Foot Cream came to our aid when my daughter picked up ‘something’ on her feet after a session at the swimming pool and both kids love After Sun applied during beach holidays to keep their skin cool and soothed, the aroma is now reminiscent of holidays for them.

Christmas Aromatherapy Tips

Screen Shot 2013-11-22 at 1.46.33 PMBath Care Kit

RRP$24
Contents: Lemon, Lavender, Spruce, Rosemary and Sage Baths 10ml each

1) The first Bath I reach for in the Christmas lead up is Sage Bath. It’s my foot bath fav to soothe and revitalise weary shopping feet.

2) To calm children that are too excited to go to sleep on Christmas Eve I give them a bath with half the contents of Lavender Bath and the other half I pour into a pretty bowl of hot water or on an aroma stone to waft its sense of serenity and calm around the home.

3) On Christmas morning, with such a busy day ahead, I figure I need all the support I can get, so I use half of the Rosemary Bath mixed with our Lemon Lemongrass Body Wash on our Cleansing Sponge for my morning shower. I breathe deeply, inhaling Rosemary’s invigorating and energising aroma and the refreshing and revitalising aroma of Lemon Lemongrass.

4) The other half of Rosemary Bath I put in a bowl of hot water, pop it up on the mantle, and I get on with all the jobs in readiness for Christmas dinner.

4) In the evening, just before guests arrive, I place a pretty bowl of hot water with Spruce Bath anywhere near the Christmas Tree, which has lost much of it’s initial pine fragrance. Voilà we have the aroma of pine through the home once more!

5) I do the same thing with Lemon Bath at the entry. Lemon is cheerful and uplifting, so it’s the perfect entrance aroma for family and friends.
