    Warnings:

    Carrot oil has a tendency to stain so be careful near clothing. Its rich, orange colour can also tint the skin when applied directly. You can avoid this by blending with a carrier oil.

     

    Ingredients: 100% Carrot Root (Daucus carota sativa) extract oil

     

    Standardised essential oils are produced to achieve a standard scent, whereas a single species essential oil may vary in scent because it is an individual plant species that can naturally vary with season, rainfall, soil quality, geography and a variety of other factors. Standardising the scent by combining multiple species is a method of producing an oil that will always be similar in quality. Standardised oils can therefore be quite beneficial when scent reliability is required.
    Standardised essential oils are pure essential oils which have not been diluted, filled or altered in any way. The only differentiating factor between standardised essential oils and others is that multiple variations of plant species are distilled.

  • Soaring Free Maca Powder 200g

    N$158.00

    Organic Maca Powder

    Maca is an adaptogen, meaning that it helps the body to adapt to increased stressors. Maca is well known as an amazing hormone balancer, and strength builder. Because of its oxygenating effect on the blood, it has also gained the reputation for being the best natural aphrodisiac.

    Maca is a wonderful superfood and will benefit you in the following:

    • High in vitamins especially vitamins B1, B2, C and E.
    • Rich in minerals including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and contains trace minerals, including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese and silica.
    • It has about 10% bioavailable calcium and about 12-14% bioavailable protein.
    • It contains nearly 20 amino acids and seven essential amino acids.
    • It is power-packed with life enhancing enzymes. “A person’s lifespan is directly related to the exhaustion of their enzyme potential.” – Dr Howell. Which basically means more enzymes in your diet equal a longer and healthier life.
    • Maca also contains nearly 60 phytochemicals.
    • Dried maca powder contains 60% carbohydrates, 9% fiber, and slightly more than 10% protein. It has a higher lipid (fat) content than other root crops (2.2%).
    • But most importantly – it is an adaptogen so it “adapts” to your body’s metabolism, working with your body for optimum results. It has the ability to balance and stabilise the body’s systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). As an adaptogen, Maca can provide more energy if it is needed, but if it is not, it will not overstimulate. Adaptogens also boost immunity and increase the body’s overall vitality by 10-15% according to most studies. Rather than addressing a specific symptom, adaptogens are used to improve the overall adaptability of the whole body to diverse and challenging situations and stress. This is an excellent supplement during pregnancy.
