Acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea are all responses to internal inflammation. I talk about inflammation quite a bit, since I believe it is the source for most (if not all) diseases. One of the best ways to calm inflammed skin is to cool it. Gressa ‘magic in a jar’ has the magic powers to cool your skin and heal it even after just one use. Why? Because among the proprietary blend of 18 powerhouse beauty secrets is an ancient ingredient that stands the test of centuries as the ultimate skin healer.
Native to India and Burma, the neem tree (Azadirachta indica) is believed to be a powerful cooling agent that can act as an anti-inflammatory in situations with excess heat. The Ayurvedic system of medicine follows the belief that everyone falls into one of three energetic types or doshas: kapha (earth and water), vatta (space and air) or pitta (fire and water); physical disorders take on similar properties.
Skin ailments are thought to have an extreme amount of heat or pitta.
Neem leaf is famous in ayurvedic texts for having an almost magical effect on the skin. Traditionally used in ayurvedic remedies for its purifying quality, the neem leaves were crushed into a paste and applied directly to problem skin.
According to ayurveda, this herb:
Supports healthy, glowing skin
Helps with occasional skin blemishes
Helps detoxify the body and purify the blood
It helps remove toxins from the skin, cool it, and helps neutralize damaging free radicals, thus nourishing more radiant skin.
Neem leaf is also par of the Herbal Steam Packettes, which is a gorgeously aromatic step in our 4 step Royal Luxury Treatment.
