Plant Profile: St. John’s wort

Screen Shot 2014-03-07 at 12.36.32 pm

St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum)

Description

If you hold St. John’s wort flowers up to the light you will see numerous small bright spots, these are glands containing a fluid of essential oils and resin. If you rub the golden yellow flowers between your fingers they will be stained blood red, the characteristic colour of St. John’s wort oil. This wondrous colour change results from the fact that light and oxygen break down constituents of the flowers. The perennial St. John’s wort plant grows to a height of 90 cm. Over summer the many branched, woody stems are covered over and over with the five-rayed flowers. This oil-rich plant, whose leaves are also densely covered with oil glands, prefers full sunlight which it requires for luxuriant growth.

Uses

Paracelsus was convinced of the wound-healing, antiseptic and eliminating action of St. John’s wort. He saw the pore-like perforation of the leaves as an indication that the plant could be used to treat any kinds of opening in the skin, either internally or internally, and that it would also support elimination through the pores.

In fact, St. John’s Wort stimulates the blood circulation and carries anabolic and nourishing processes to the sphere of the nerves and the senses.

With its calming, pain relieving and wound healing properties it brings relief not only in chapped, cracked and irritated skin accompanied by redness but also in mild burns. Embrocations with the characteristic red oil help relieve nerve pain, rheumatism, lumbago and sprains. St. John’s wort is used internally for treatment of depression.

Interest

There are numerous legends attached to St. John’s wort. According to one it originates from the blood of John the Baptist, according to another St. John the Evangelist is said to have gathered the plant drenched in the Saviour’s blood from beneath the cross. The naming of the plant St. John’s wort was supported particularly by the fact that the Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, whose patron saint is John the Baptist, already used the plant for treatment of wounds at the time of the Crusades.

St. John’s wort, one of the magical plants of the summer solstice, devoting itself to the sun like no other plant. It is said to have the greatest healing powers at the Feast of St. John, three days after midsummer night in the Northern Hemisphere, when it is at the height of its bloom and is imbued with the full power of the summer sun. At this time the light has reached its climax and the sun joins in matrimony with the earth. Since time immemorial people have honoured this day of union between the light and the earth, between spirit and matter, with great feasts. A remnant of this tradition can still be seen today in Europe with the bonfires lit on midsummer’s night.

The plant ingredient at Dr. Hauschka

The radiant yellow flowers of St. John’s wort which stretch up towards the sun on straight stems, contain the highest concentration of active constituents at the time of the summer solstice. This seems to be an expression of its sunlike character. The luxuriant wealth of flowers contrasts starkly with the dry, hard wood of the plant. That which is between the flower and the branch shows a tendency to contract, to dry. This is the expression of a forming character which brings order to that which is excessively in flux.

This is the field of tension in which we find the numerous healing effects of this old medicinal plant. As plant of the light it drives away the darkness in human beings, and thus helps internally in depression, externally in sunburn. As bringer of order it supports the organism in all anabolic processes of the nerve-sense organs, whether as wound-healing agent or in treatment of depression.

In Dr. Hauschka skin care products St. John’s wort is found wherever, in addition to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, soothing and strengthening of the skin is desired: Rose Day CreamRevitalising Day CreamTinted Day CreamClarifying Day Oil, Cleansing Cream, Almond St. John’s wort Soothing Body Oil, Almond Soothing Body Cream, Blackthorn Toning Body Oil, Lip Balm and Eye Balm. In Hydrating Foot Cream it brings light to the feet which in our culture are usually condemned to a shadowy existence enclosed in shoes.

Three-fold Nature of Human Beings, Plants and the Skin

Dr. Hauschka Moisturisers each have their own leading plant, which gives them their distinctive character, as individual as your skin.

The philosophical approach behind Dr. Hauschka Skin Care is Anthroposophy, meaning ‘wisdom of man/woman’.

Philosopher and natural scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s work is not for the faint hearted, however, it’s interesting to have an understanding of how this relates to the development of product formulations and the efficacy of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care preparations. Through close observation of plants in their natural environments Steiner explored the relationship between plants and people. His work revealed the healing qualities of specific plants and showed how each of their three parts is symbiotic with the human body and skin; the body’s largest organ. This concept he named ‘three-fold’.

Three parts to people

According to the three-fold image, the human being is made up of three core systems: the nerve-sense, the rhythmic and the metabolic-limb.

Three parts to plants

Like humans, plants have their own three-fold system. For a plant, however, the system is turned upside down. While in a human the nerve-sense system is found in the head, in a plant, it’s in the roots, the other way around. The metabolic-limb system is at the top of a plant in its flowers, fruits and seeds. At the centre of a plant, the stem and leaves is the rhythmic system.

Three parts to skin

Skin has three layers; the epidermis (top layer), dermis (mid layer) and subcutaneous or hypodermis (3rd and deepest layer). You would have heard of the term ‘third degree burns’, meaning all three layers of the skin.

Making a difference

Real health and beauty come from the inside and the outside. In its natural state, the skin is healthy and balanced. However skin condition can easily be compromised when other factors come into play; such as internal and external environmental issues, lifestyle, hormonal issues, transitions or stress. Peace of mind is beneficial for the skin as is adequate sleep, nutritious food, fresh air and exercise.

Negative effects on the skin may result in acne/ blemishes, inflammation, dry and/or dehydrated skin, premature wrinkles or simply a complexion that lacks health and radiance. At this point the natural world helps to heal. How this relates to Dr. Hauschka Skin Care is understanding the remarkable similarities between plants and the skin, so we are able to select ingredients that support particular skin functions.

Rosemary

We can take Rosemary as an example of how we look at a medicinal plant ingredient. Rosemary has few flowers, and an abundance of leaves. The leaves are the plant’s rhythmic system. We look at the effect Rosemary has on our rhythmic system: enhancing circulation, warming and invigorating.

Screen Shot 2014-05-20 at 10.01.50 am

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care preparations contain elements of plant root, leaf and flower, so all three layers of skin are addressed.

Our preparations are developed by Anthroposophically Trained Doctors and Pharmacists in conjunction with our highly qualified Dr. Hauschka trained Estheticians. Our formulations are complex and they comprise of many elements, never one or two.

‘One violin doesn’t make an orchestra.’ 

Every ingredient that goes into a Dr. Hauschka Skin Care product has an important job to do for your skin. Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience, nourishment, protection from the environment, improving efficacy or something for the senses as well as your skin in the form of essential oils. Each element is thoughtfully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the other ingredients in the formula.

*WALA and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care have been working with healing plant and mineral extracts since the 1930’s. This pharmaceutical and medicinal expertise joins over 45 years of pioneering work in truly holistic skin care to create the purest, most effective natural, organic and biodynamic skin care products available.

Rose Cultivation Partnership Projects

Damask Rose (Rosa damascena)

In creating the formulations for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products, we draw on the many things that nature has to offer. For example, medicinal plants, botanical oils and waxes and genuine essential oils. Working with renewable natural raw materials has many logistical challenges, therefore long term planning is imperative for us. Many of the medicinal herbs we need are grown by our gardeners in our own biodynamic garden or in the fields on our Demeter certified farm, Sonnenhof. We also purchase other raw materials from regional sources as the climate is not suitable for growing some of the plant species from which we obtain raw materials. WALA*/Dr. Hauschka initiates and supports organic or biodynamic cultivation projects all over the world to ensure premium quality, sufficient quantity, continuity and longevity of ingredient supplies, and we embrace social responsibility and fair price principles. A prime example of this is Rose Essential Oil partnerships in Bulgaria, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and our most recently launched Rose Project in the Ethiopian Highlands.

Did you know?

• There are 30 organic or biodynamic roses in every tube of Rose Day Cream.

• We sell tubes of Rose Day Cream per minute worldwide!

• We purchase the highest quantity of the world’s highest grade organic rose essential oil. It comes from our biodynamic or organic cultivation partnership projects in Ethiopia, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria and Afghanistan.

• Approximately one hectare of roses is needed to obtain 1 kg of precious Rose Essential Oil, which is used in nearly all Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and Make-up products and in many WALA medicines.

Rose Project – Ethiopian Highlands

Ethiopia

When it comes to sources of Rose Essential Oil, countries such as Turkey, Bulgaria, Iran and Afghanistan come to mind – but Ethiopia? As it turns out, the Ethiopian highlands, which are well known for their coffee, provide the ideal conditions for growing the very fragrant Damask Rose, and it yields an exceptionally precious essential oil.

WALA/Dr. Hauschka Skin Care support the Terra PLC Damask Rose Farm, a fair trade initiative in Ethiopia. We are helping to create a self-reliant and economically sustainable community by establishing a biodynamic resource for Damask Rose Essential Oil, a key ingredient in the Dr. Hauschka range.

In 2005 WALA/Dr. Hauschka Skin Care provided Ethiopian grower, Fekade Lakew, with rose cuttings and introduced him to a consultant to train and advise on biodynamic cultivation methods. It took 7 years before the first harvest of rose blossoms. At that time, in 2012, Lakew also initiated the biodynamic certification process. Once certified, his farm was the sole certified biodynamic source of rose essential oil in Africa.

A key benefit of growing roses near the equator is that the lifespan of the bloom increases substantially, giving farmers twice the time to harvest, and requiring fewer pickers who can often be employed beyond the typical picking season. Ethiopian roses in particular are nearly twice as heavy as blossoms from other countries resulting in a greater yield from fewer plants.

WALA/Dr. Hauschka Skin Care committed to purchasing all of the rose essential oil produced at Fekade Lakew’s farm for a period of ten years, and 60-70% thereafter. This ensures that the initiative has ample time to establish itself without becoming dependent upon a single customer for all its revenue in the long term.

Damask Rose Essential Oil from Ethiopia is used in the formulations of nearly all Dr. Hauschka products, including Rose Day Cream, Rose Day Cream Light, Rose Nurturing Body Wash, Rose Deodorant, Rose Nurturing Body Oil, Rose Nurturing Body Moisturiser, and many of our make-up products. When a Dr. Hauschka customer purchases products featuring this hero ingredient, she/he helps support the growth of this fair trade effort in Ethiopia and Dr. Hauschka’s other rose cultivation projects around the globe.

Rose Project – Iran

Iran

The cultivation of roses in ‘Persia’ is an ancient tradition. There are 1500 growers who work as independent operators for Zahra Rosewater Company, our partner in Iran. Through biodynamic practices over the last few decades the annual production yield is now 900 tonnes of rose water (rose hydrosol) and 150 kgs of rose essential oil. WALA/Dr. Hauschka purchase more than one third of all the rose oil and dried rose blossoms that Zahra produces. The Iranian government subsidises chemical fertilisers, so initially it was extremely difficult to convince the farmers to refrain from using them, and to embrace biodynamic agriculture. Education and training were and still are important pillars of the collaboration with these growers.

Anyone working with Zahra is family and as part of this family-oriented collaboration, older people no longer able to work receive a kind of pension, Zahra has improved the water supply to the villages and supports the schools. A local health centre set up by Zahra guarantees primary health care. Zahra makes it possible for gifted children to attend a special school. The hope is that they will return to their villages with a good education and work there. The idea is working, Lalehzar has the lowest unemployment rate in the region. Zahra also donates part of its profits to the orphanages of the Sanati Foundation.

Rose Project – Bulgaria

Bulgaria

Rose oil has been produced for the French perfume industry since the end of the 19th century. These days, however, the perfume industry uses mainly synthetic chemical ‘perfume’ as a much cheaper option. WALA/Dr. Hauschka  instigated long term supply contracts with Bulgarian rose growers and the provision of loans to support our new partners. Organic Certification was gained in 2003.

Rose Project – Turkey

Turkey

Some 320 mountain farmers in the Baskoop Rose Co-operative have adapted their methods of cultivation to supply certified organic roses. WALA is significantly contributing to securing the livelihoods of the local farming families and to the survival of the traditional and labour intensive rose distilling industry. WALA also bears all costs for agricultural, technical and organic consultations and some of the costs of certification.

Auf dem Rosenfeld
Rose Project – Afghanistan

Afghanistan

Did you know that 80% of the world’s heroin comes from Afghanistan? In order to combat the opium trade in Afghanistan and on the initiative of German Agro Action a project was set up for producing rose oil in 2004.  This project offers an alternative means of securing a sustainable and honourable livelihood for local farmers. WALA/Dr. Hauschka expressed an interest in the project in 2006 and has been supporting it ever since. Today over 700 farmers are growing organic Damask roses on more than 100 hectares of land. A large volume of organic rose oil is produced, most of which is sold to WALA/Dr. Hauschka.  This ancient Afghan tradition has been brought back to life with this budding partnership.

Our Rose Essential Oil is derived from Rosa damascena, named so from Damascus in Syria, also known as the Damask Rose.  This most fragrant of roses produces the highest quality Rose Essential Oil, also known as Rose Otto, or Attar of Roses.

Summer Solutions for Feet and Legs

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Put the spring back in your step

Your feet bear your body weight while your toes balance your body in an act of the utmost precision. It is no wonder that they make themselves felt now and again. If we spend a lot of time on our feet, our feet and legs become tired and may also swell. If this is aggravated by incorrectly fitting shoes we may also suffer from blisters, pressure points, calluses or aching legs. Hot weather also puts a strain on our feet and legs. It’s really important to pamper your feet and legs with supportive skin care, something much more than just moisturising.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Hydrating Foot Cream for dry feet and Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic revive tired feet and legs and help work to prevent swelling. With real Silk Powder, Deodorising Foot Cream helps control excess perspiration keeping feet dry, comfortable and fresh through the day. Rosemary and Sage combine to revitalise, you’ll be walking on clouds. Silk Body Powder leaves feet feeling truly refreshed. Both products have a deodorising effect and minimise foot odour.

Tip: Sprinkle a little Silk Body Powder in your shoes to keep them smelling fresh.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence and Sage Purifying Bath Essence are both ideal foot baths. Amazing what a 10 minute foot bath with a refreshing Bath Essence will do.

Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic invigorates, energises and tones the skin. It soothes and minimises water-retention (swelling) and tired legs arms and legs regain a sense of lightness. Rosemary essential oil energises and supports circulation. Borage helps reduce the appearance of varicose veins and cellulite. After a long day of sitting or standing, Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic refreshes and energises limbs for continued activity.

Tips:

For dry skin, blend Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic with your favourite Dr. Hauschka Body Oil, Body Milk or Body Cream.

Use Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic as a 3pm pick-me-up, works a treat! Decant some into an old Toner bottle and keep in your desk drawer.

Lastly, for toenail care, use Neem Nail & Cuticle Pen or Neem Nail & Cuticle Oil 30ml.

Happy Customer

“I spend my days either walking around in heels or in bare feet and as a result my feet are either sore and tired or dry and cracked. I’m not kind to my feet, which is probably why I love the Hydrating Foot Cream. I put it on at night and not only do my feet feel cool and soothed by the next morning the cracks are gone and they’re lovely and soft. I gave this product to my Dad who had horrible cracks in his feet that really hurt. After five days he called and asked what on earth was in the Hydrating Foot Cream as the cracks had almost gone and his feet felt better than they had in ages. We both still use it and it is one of the products I recommend to everyone.”

Hot Weather Beauty Tips

Hot weather, sun, wind, salt, air conditioning and humidity! 

 

1) Dry, flaky skin

Inadequate hydration, dehydrating air conditioning and too much sun are drying to your skin and may result in dry, rough, flaky skin. Drink a minimum of 6-8 glasses of water and/or herbal teas a day to hydrate from within.

Remember you may need to change your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser for the seasons to ensure optimum care.

Skin Tip: Always apply your body moisturiser to skin that’s still moist from your shower, this helps to lock in moisture. You’ll be applying your face Moisturiser on skin still moist from Toner, however, in warm weather keep a bottle handy to mist Toner during the day as well.

TIP: Keep your Toner in the fridge for a cool spritz

2) Sun-stressed skin

Revitalising Mask is a must for a sun-stressed skin, cooling and soothing, use twice a week. Cleanse early in the evening, apply Revitalising Mask, including the eye contour area, and leave to absorb for as long as possible, removing with a tepid cloth prior to bed time.

After Sun is our summertime and holiday must have body moisturiser for it’s antioxidants, cooling and soothing Ice Plant extract, and long lasting moisture.

3) Cover-up

Think floppy hats, maxi dresses and skirts, pretty tops, floaty palazzo pants and of course always sunnies.

4) Being Sun Smart

Click here to read…

5) Fine lines and wrinkles

These occur due to the age-triggered loss of collagen and elastin from skin, but exposure to sun and dry winds, resulting in dry skin, is likely to accelerate the process. Foods and skin care high in antioxidants helps to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature ageing, so ensure you’re getting your Vitamins A, C and E, fruit, vegetables, coffee, tea, wine, and dark chocolate.

Regenerating Range is specifically formulated to support a maturing skin.

6) Dull Skin

For a dull, dry skin use Revitalising Day Cream, our lightest in texture moisturiser, yet also our most activating. Apply Tinted Day Cream over the top to bring back warm tones to the skin and double the moisturising.

If dryness is not an issue, mix a little Translucent Bronzing Tint with any Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser for a sun-kissed healthy glow.

7) Breakouts

Recent email from a customer…

Q: Help! My skin is breaking out with this weather, make-up is disappearing from now oily t-zone by lunchtime. Using Rose Day Cream and in my late 30’s.

A: Rose Day Cream is too rich for you at this time of year. Here’s your recommended daily regime for summer:

MORNING
Cleansing Cream
Clarifying Toner
Melissa Day Cream – specific for mediating between oily and normal (or dry) areas of your face, helps to control shine, and has a matte finish. Another alternative would be Rose Day Cream Light.
Coverstick – a must have product, conceals and treats pimples

You may like to try mixing a little Translucent Bronzing Tint with your Melissa Day Cream as a tinted moisturiser instead of make-up or Foundation and set with Translucent Powder Loose in the morning, and during the day touch-up with Translucent Powder Compact.

EVENING
Soothing Cleansing Milk
Clarifying Toner
Night Serum

We also highly recommend once a week Clarifying Facial Bath and Clarifying Clay Mask and twice a week Revitalising Mask.


8) Sun-Stressed Tresses

Hair can suffer from overexposure to sun, sea, chlorine, heat and warm winds, making it dry and prone to breakage. Limit use of the blow drier, hair straighteners and curling tongs and don’t shampoo every day if you don’t need to. Use Hair Strengthening Treatment as a treatment for hair and scalp and/or scrunch into the ends, and use leave-in Revitalising Hair & Scalp Tonic daily.

5 Reasons to take special care of your neck and décolleté

Most of us are in a good routine with our morning cleanse, tone and moisturise ritual for our face, but are you taking the best care of your neck and décolleté? Here are the reasons you need to.

 

1) Skin in these areas produces less oil than on your face, and neglecting it may result in premature ageing.

2) Skin is thinner, with a lower adipose tissue compared to your face, which makes it prone to dehydration and dryness.

3) Side sleepers particularly may notice wrinkles on their décolleté, making it even more important to nourish and restore this area daily.

4) The angle of your décolleté to the sun may mean full UV exposure. Apply a physical barrier (zinc and/or titanium dioxide) sunscreen to protect against sun damage.

5) Neck and décolleté are exposed to environmental influences, so daily protection is required from the dehydrating and drying effects of air conditioning, pollution, sun, wind etc.

How to care for your Neck & Décolleté

1) Morning ritual: Cleanse neck and décolleté, tone, apply intensive specific care Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream to protect, nourish, tone and firm.

2) Apply a physical barrier (zinc and/or titanium dioxide) sunscreen and remember to reapply.

3) Evening ritual: Cleanse, tone and apply oil-free night care, Regenerating Serum.

Neck & Décolleté Treatment TIP: After cleansing and toning warm around a large pea size of Hydrating Mask between the palms of your hands and gently press onto neck and décolleté. Leave to absorb as long as possible, removing with a tepid moist cloth.

Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream

firms, tones and smoothes

As we age, the skin’s natural processes of renewal begin to slow and skin loses elasticity. Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions. Skin is hydrated, refined and revitalised for a smoother, more supple appearance. Wrinkles are visibly diminished and skin looks and feels firmer.

Formulation

  • Highly regenerative and phytoestrogen rich red clover, powerful antioxidant acerola berries and whole pomegranate* are blended with rose extract to support natural skin renewal, enhance skin tone and support elasticity.
  • Ancient field horsetail, a plant rich in bioavailable silica, fortifies and firms the skin.
  • Witch hazel distillate and marsh mallow leaf extract support the skin’s moisture balance.
  • Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants are nourishing coconut, argan, jojoba, sesame, sweet almond, macadamia and sunflower oils.
  • Shea butter and beeswax protect your skin without being occlusive.

*Pomegranates, an age-defying ingredient

• We process the whole pomegranate fruit, including the peel for our products, obtaining a preparation that promotes regeneration of the skin.

• Pomegranate peel is an important ingredient because its extract inhibits an enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of collagen in ageing skin.

• At the same time, the extract activates an enzyme that’s involved in the production of collagen.

• Pomegranate seed oil contained in the whole-fruit extract stimulates cell division in the keratinocytes, cells which produce the important skin-strengthening protein keratin.
