Sunflowers are the symbol for Energy, Perfection and Longevity. They are also awesome big bright blooms-so until the clouds part, brighten up your space with some fresh cut yellow flowers.
Yellow has always been my favorite color. I wrote a series of poems about “Yellow” in college, and whenever I see a big Sunflower I can’t help but smile. After reading new ingredient literature this week I am now an even a bigger fan of the beautiful Sunflower. It may just give the Fountain of Youth a run for it’s money.
Did you know that this flower has been treasured for centuries because Sunflowers turn to face the sun and have represented warmth, power, and nourishment? In China they are a symbol of longevity, and the Incas used it as their royal emblem because of its geometric perfection and believed it had magical powers.
Recent Lab studies sent from one of our new suppliers from Switzerland has shown that this Sunflower shoot “ active” helps “reconstruct the skins epidermis with normal keratinocytes, and after 4 weeks the ATP production was increased almost as high as in young reconstructed epidermis” . That’s pretty technical jargon, but it sounds like an exciting ingredient to add to some of our future skincare formulations.
Here at Wally’s Natural, we have a Department that researches the latest discoveries and newest natural ingredients, so that we can continue to bring our valued customers and families the best possible personal care products.
We have just ordered samples of Natural Sunflower shoot extract because we are excited about the health benefits this botanical offers. In the coming months as we develop our new products, we hope to use quality ingredients like Sunflower shoot extract in our skincare, along with our existing organic essential oils.
Sprouts contain all the nutrients that a plant needs to grow, and that is why seed sprouts are so good for our bodies. They have the most concentrated “protecting” compounds against disease and damage. Mother nature wants the tender shoots to survive and these compounds are proving to have benefits to us humans as well.
Essential Oils made from seeds and flowers are a very concentrated source of healing compounds and have been used for centuries. Wally’s Natural uses well know essential oils such as Lavender, Chamomile, Calendula, Echinacea, Gardenia, Chickweed, Tea tree, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon, Mullein, as well as Green tea and Aloe Barbadensis leaf. Wally’s sources our Essential oils from Organic growers and always try to support sustainable agriculture.
