All About Avani Herbals Natural Remedies
ME AND THE BEGINNING
Hi, I’m Kathleen. It’s no real surprise to people who know me well, that I am passionate about helping others through Natural Remedies; it seems most my life I have chosen professions that help people enjoy a better quality of life. A life free of Stress, Pain, Discomfort, Joint and Muscle pain. These are just a few of the benefits of herbs, not to mention the beneficial effects of herbal skin care. In 2006, when the National economy was suffering from serious financial setbacks, like so many other people, I was laid-off after working 10 years at a government office. I used this time as an opportunity to go back to school and become a Therapeutic Massage Therapist. This is where I first learned about the benefits of herbals and essential oils. I wanted to find a method of Natural Healing that would help with stress relief, pain relief, and joint and muscle pain. On top of that, all herbs needed were accessible and made in Oregon.
As I started to research the natural healing properties of herbs it became more fascinating and exciting the more I delved into it. What I discovered was the world of herbs is vast and could be overwhelming, however I wasn’t deterred. I saw how incredible a flower in the Marigold family called Calendula, which grows like a weed, is one of the greatest herbs today and has been used for centuries to heal wounds. This natural herb soothes and heals sore, angry, or inflamed skin, containing natural anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antimicrobial actions as well as skin care benefits. It became more and more evident how important natural healing plants and herbs were to humanity. To help releive the hundreds and thousands who suffer from some type of pain relief was something that was important to me.
MY EXPERIENCE AS A MASSAGE THERAPIST
Clinical studies and incredible results have demonstrated the remarkable healing properties of natural herbs and the human body that are unencumbered by synthetic materials. It has become apparent this day and age to see what unhealthy effects, pesticides, unnatural preservatives and artificial chemicals have on our bodies and our skin. During the 19th century the cosmetic industry first began using preservatives in their products. This innovated use of synthetic preservatives caught on and was mass-produced within the industry. As a result, allergies increased. In my early years of making products, I used my creams on my massage therapy clients. They marveled at how they weren’t causing them the skin irritations they had experienced with some over the counter applications. As a matter of fact they found the creams were actually calming their irritated skin along with offering relief from stress, pain, discomfort, and joint and muscle pain.
