I have a sensitive, aged skin with rosacea.
I prepare a mixture of
Gotu Kola Extract (Centella Asiatica Cica) 10 drops
Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil (a Superfruit from Europe and Asia) 10 drops
Burdock Root Extract 10 drops
Cinnamon Essential oil 1 drop
Aloe Vera Gel (I use Holika) 1 1/2 tbsp
Glycerin 1 1/2 tbsp
Beeswax 1/2 tbsp
Vitamin E 2 Softgels
I made a patch test and it was ok.
I will try to perfect this formula and edit in the future. Maybe increase the cinnamon oil little by little.
If you choose to copy this be careful. Every person has different skin.
Gotu kola belongs to the same plant family as parsley, celery and carrots.
This herb commonly used in traditional Asian cuisines is loaded with antioxidants helps to repair skin conditions like psoriasis, reduce fever, improve blood circulation, reduces inflammation, ease depression and anxiety, and fight free radicals that can cause gastric ulcers.
Great quality, pure ingredients, I use it for anti aging, used topically, benefits the skin if added to serums and moisturiser, noticable improvement of skin softness and oil concerns. I have tasted it and it is ok, very dark colored. would like to try it as a supplement, yet to try it. well packaged in vacuum seal, I will purchase it again, very well priced compared to other places, as it is harder to find than common things.
I've been taking Gotu Cola in powder form, and switched to the tincture since it seems to work better for me. This brand is always great quality and potent tinctures. I really feel the difference in brain clarity and ability to focus. Tastes strong like any tincture, but that shows it's potent so it's a good thing.
This product is great BUT IF you want to benefit from it then it's important to know that this is only the 'Extract'
Research has proven that the human body cannot efficiently assimilate (utilize) the nutrients from any plant extract unless it's accompanied by the aerial parts in its original form. They don't mention this on the label. So basically, if you really want to get the most out of Gotu Kola then you should consume it in conjunction with a product that provides it in its original form such as this product here www.iherb.com/pr/nature-s-way-gotu-kola-herb-475-mg-100-vegan-capsules/88446
Almost all good with the product. It arrived wrapped in paper and in a cardboard box, which is fine. However, the two containers were hitting each other. More care was needed when wrapping it. Fortunately they didn't break. The delivery time was optimal.
