What it is:
Our skin is our largest organ and receives about a third of all of the blood circulated in the body. It’s active! Stimulating the skin by brushing or vigorous rubbing stimulates the skin and helps keep pores open so that we can perspire easily (and that’s partly how wastes leave our body). The stimulation also can improve the skin’s overall health and balance fat distribution. Chen Pi Body Oil is designed to improve those functions when applied to the skin when you do your scrubbing (vigorous rubbing). It can also be used in conjunction with the Chinese therapy called gua sha for treatment of cellulite. 90% organic.
What it does:
Because your skin is an organ that has functions and is affected by topical lotions and oils, the herbs in this formula affect it. Rosemary oil helps detox and relieve bloating. The vitamin E in grapeseed oil helps keep the skin firm and smooth. Citrus peel (chen pi) removes stagnation while cypress also helps remove fat via urination and it’s good for the liver. Dr. Lucas uses this oil locally over the liver area with a warm cloth to help detox the liver after events like chemotherapy.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
Endangered plants or minerals
What else you need to know:
Shake before using.
Put a small amount on the area to be massaged and vigorously massage the area to move stagnation. (Note: in Chinese medicine, fat is considered to be stagnation so moving it by vigorous massage may metabolize it faster.)
