"You may laugh at this, but I have an incredible new use for your Body Lotion. My domestic worker had pigmentation under her eyes and felt self-conscious about it. I put a little Nutritive Body Lotion in a container, and instructed her to use it under her eyes. I thought it would be interesting because there are so many minerals etc in the lotion. The pigmentation did not disappear, but the rest of the skin on her face became more even toned, and looked really beautiful. Her friends are all complimenting her and I've given the entire bottle to her now.
Perhaps there's a new market for Nutritive Body Lotion that The Fountainhead was previously unaware of?!
Regards Anet"

For those who want the benefits of absorbing magnesium sulphate through skin as in our Healing Bath but prefer to shower.

"Really looking froward to the shipment - the lotion is FANTASTIC - i have used in on my eczema with miraculous results!!!"

Pain Relief
"My grandfather who's 85 tore his achilles tendon 20 year ago. For 2 years after the injury he could not walk properly. Then recently he tripped on a pavement and re-injured his achilles tendon and again was suffering terribly. I told him to use the Nutritive Body Lotion which I had and my grand-father being stubborn didn't want to use it so I gave the bottle to my grand-mother and told her to get him to use it. Well, it is now his "miracle cream" he used the Nutritive Body Lotion and couldn't believe the results, his achilles tendon is now fine. Over the weekend whilst they were braaing a friend burnt his fingers and so my grand-father put Nutritive body Lotion on his fingers and the next day the blisters were gone. My grand-father now swears by your Nutritive Body Lotion. He is going to Los Angeles and now wants 8 bottles to take with him for family over there".

Sesame Seed Oil - The Golden Oil Of Life
Sesame Seed Oil has been used as a healing oil in the middle east and India for thousands of years. Sesame oil is mentioned in the Vedas as excellent for humans. It is naturally antibacterial for common skin pathogens, such as staphylococcus and streptococcus as well as common skin fungi, such as athlete's foot fungus. It is naturally antiviral. It is a natural anti inflammatory agent.

In Ayur-Veda sesame oil is considered one of the primary oils used for health and healing.
Sesame oil is used for massage and has countless therapeutic benefits because of its lecithin content it helps brain cells and nerves, is recommended to alleviate depression and fatigue, for rejuvenation, and to increase energy.

In terms of body care sesame oil is used to protect and beautify the skin, and for whole body massage. A simple and effective Ayur-Vedic treatment for insomnia is to massage the soles of the feet with sesame oil before bed for a calm and restful sleep - you may do this with your Nutritive Body Lotion.

Research shows that sesame seed oil is a potent antioxidant. In the tissues beneath the skin, this oil will neutralize oxygen radicals. It penetrates into the skin quickly and enters the blood stream through the capillaries. Molecules of sesame seed oil maintain good cholesterol (HDL) and lower bad cholesterol (LDL).

Sesame seed oil is a cell growth regulator. It is a useful natural UV protector. Used after exposure to wind or sun it will calm the burns. It protects the skin from the effects of chlorine in swimming pool water. Used before and after radiation treatments, sesame seed oil helps neutralize the flood of oxygen radicals which such treatment inevitably causes.

On the skin, Sesame seed oil absorbs quickly and penetrates through the tissues to the very marrow of the bone. It enters into the blood stream through the capillaries and circulates. The liver does not sweep sesame seed oil molecules from the blood, accepting those molecules as friendly.

Sesame seed oil helps joints keep their flexibility. It keeps the skin supple and soft. It heals and protects areas of mild scrapes, cuts and abrasions. It helps tighten facial skin, particularly around the nose, controlling the usual enlargement of pores as skin ages chronologically.

Teen boys and girls have learned, wrongly, that all oil is bad for their facial skin. Heavy oils and toxic oils and creams are bad for all facial skin. But sesame seed oil is the one oil which is actually good for young skin. It helps control eruptions and neutralizes the poisons which develop both on the surface and in the pores. With sesame oil, no cosmetics are needed. The oil will cause young facial skin to have and display natural good health.

Used on baby skin, particularly in the area covered by a diaper, sesame seed oil will protect the tender skin against rash caused by the acidity of body wastes. In the nose and ears, it will protect against common skin pathogens.

When using the Nutritive Body Lotion as for massage, stroke the long limbs up and down. Use circular motions over all joints to stimulate the natural energy of those joints.

Reduction of such lines was 26%, 18% and 11% after 1, 4 and 8 hours in conducted tests. Jojoba oil was also tested for hypoallergenic reactions. Two out of 50 people with known allergic skin types showed reactions to Jojoba. This reaction on the inherently hyper-allergic skins cleared completely after 24 hours.Tests at Michigan University showed that five of the most common skin bacteria plus certain skin fungi couldn't survive in jojoba oil.
