Wrinkles on my face.

I am personally very intrigued by the psychology of wrinkles. From the physiological perspective there are numerous causes of facial wrinkles and there are also different types of wrinkles that you will find on your face. Some are very superficial some deep, some are very deep. It is the deep and very deep ones that I take special interest in.

As my own body and face are experiencing changes which come with living long enough to notice physical disintegration, crystallization and fixed patterns of tension, I am even more interested simply because I want to understand myself and life expressing through the body I occupy:)

Deep wrinkles are formed deep in the tissues. You see them on the surface and you may think it’s your skin but actually your skin is just expressing the state of tension present in the connective tissue and your muscles. You can apply all the creams in the world and you will not see a difference with this type of wrinkle (unless the cream contains peptides which have a similar effect on the muscle as botox does). 

We know it is tension in deeper layers of facial tissues and we could approach it from the physical perspective. Right away face massage comes to mind as a great remedy.  But the question to ask is why did the tension build up in these tissues in the first place? The answer will come from beyond the physical. It will also reveal why you may dislike what you see in the mirror. It really is not the wrinkle itself that you don’t like, it’s what it represents, it’s what message it holds within its tight fold that you’d rather not see, that you’d rather be not reminded of.

As mind and body are forever working together and what you feel on the emotional level always finds expression in your physical being. Furrowed brows, raised foreheads, tight lips with lines all around are actually thought patterns which have been playing in your mind over and over again. They represent sadness, frustration, anger, dissatisfaction….

If you are a happy joyful being, you may have ‘happy wrinkles’ around your eyes, the laugh lines may have formed… I bet if that’s you, you are not bothered by your lines at all. 

So what to do when you are not happy with what you see?  Recognizing the connection between thought, emotion and their expression in the physical body is essential. This way you acknowledge that you are actually the creator and not the victim. Spend time daily, touching your face lovingly and kindly and know that it maybe be holding a lot of your pains and worries. Messages it holds are here to help you, not to bring you down. Take moments to breath as you gently rest the palm of your hands on your face.

This will be a wonderful beginning to a fresh relationship with your face and yourself. If you feel inspired to explore more contact me.

Many blessings, Magdalena

Woman Divine online store is live!!!

It was one of my goals for 2016 to create the online store. I barely made it:) but it’s finally here:

www.womandivine.ca/shop

This is very exciting for me and I hope that it will make it easier for you to purchase Woman Divine handcrafted skin care products.

Working solo is a beautiful thing but I can appreciate that buying products from me until now might have seemed a little bit like buying illegal drugs…:) You leave your money in a special envelope, I leave your merchandise in a special place…:) Thank you for being so understanding and easy going about this! I truly appreciate it!

As you know, my company is small, very small:)  but I do want to make a difference. Making high quality organic skin care accessible to all women who want to live a healthy life with a healthy glow is my priority.

I make this happen by selling directly to you. There are no middlemen, and no need to inflate my prices. Woman Divine products are available only through my online shop and the studio.

I handcraft these organic plant based products to inspire you to take loving care of yourself and to bring more beauty and health into your life. I believe that using them should be your everyday practice, and not just a luxury.                                                                                                                  

With the new store come a few changes and I would like to tell you about them.

1) New labels, new look.                                                                                                                                 Woman Divine skin care products got a fresh, clean and modern look. I hope that you will like it. In the process some products got renamed. Here it goes:

Face Serum / restorative blend is now Face Serum rose + sandalwood

Regenerating Face Oil is now Face Oil frankincense + camellia

Rose Hydrosol changed to Rosewater Mist

2) We have a few new products:

Face Serum fennel + primrose / to keep our skin nice and tight and to give it some luster

Face Oil calendula + chamomile  / for sensitive and delicate skin / with our local organic herbs and sunflower oil as part of the blend

Body Oil jasmine + tuberose / a beautiful hydrating oil with a lovely sweet scent

Lip Balm argan + orange / my lip balms are really lovely:)

I am working on new products, which will be created, around our local organic herbs… good stuff coming in the future.                                                                               

3) Your Woman Divine products can always be purchased during your visits.

When purchasing online you have a choice to have products delivered to you or to pick them up at the studio. All the details about purchases, shipping and such can be found on the customer care page of my website: www.womandivine.ca/customer-care
