Extra virgin, non-hydrogenated coconut oil provides nutritional fuel quickly with fatty acids that have no opportunity to be stored as fat by the body.While carbohydrates provide quick energy, they also require the body to secrete insulin from the pancreas to be broken down before they can be used by cells. As we age, we often become more and more insulin resistant, and the carbohydrates not broken down by insulin are stored as fat. The fatty acids in coconut oil are immediately ready for use by the cell without the opportunity to be stored as fat. This coconut oil is processed within 90 minutes from opening the fresh coconut for optimum potency. Among other benefits, coconut oil also contains a special protein - a prime ingredient in Mother's Milk - that is known to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic qualities.

Steaming with herbs is so much better than with just water because herbs soften surface water tension allowing a better penetration of the herbally infused steam. A good detoxifying mask after the steam will greatly accelerate the process of pushing toxins to the surface. Organic herbal steam penetrates all layers of the skin to purify, decongest, and revitalize. Results are better blood circulation and toning of the pores.
RECOMMENDED STEAM DURATION:
Normal skin: Steam for 10-15 minutes
Dry skin: Steam for 3-5 minutes.
Oily skin: Steam for 10-15 minutes.
Combination skin: Steam for 10-15 minutes.
Congested skin: Steam for 10-15 minutes.
Irritated skin: Steam for 5-10 minutes.
*Steaming is not recommended for extremely sensitive skin, severe inflammation, infection, sunburn, extreme acneic skin, or when many small broken capillaries are visible. Avoid using herbs if you are pregnant.
Step Two: Cleanse skin, and remove make- up.
Step Three: After freshly cleaning your skin, lower your face over the bowl and cover your head with a large towel to prevent steam from escaping, keeping face at a comfortable distance above pot.
Step Four: Relax, close your eyes and deeply breathe in steam for several minutes.

Starflower Essentials has decided to be of service by distributing a coconut oil whose processing has maintained the highest level of micronutrients and life force energy as possible.
Starflower's Extra virgin, non-hydrogenated Coconut Oil provides nutritional fuel quickly with fatty acids that have no opportunity to be stored as fat by the body.While carbohydrates provide quick energy, they also require the body to secrete insulin from the pancreas to be broken down before they can be used by cells. As we age, we often become more and more insulin resistant, and the carbohydrates not broken down by insulin are stored as fat. The fatty acids in coconut oil are immediately ready for use by the cell without the opportunity to be stored as fat. This coconut oil is processed within 90 minutes from opening the fresh coconut for optimum potency. Among other benefits, coconut oil also contains a special protein - a prime ingredient in Mother's Milk - that is known to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic qualities. Fine organic coconut oil can be added by the tablespoon to beverages, or used as a replacement for other traditional cooking oils.
In the past, coconut oil was found to raise blood cholesterol and cause heart disease. However, these conclusions were drawn based on studies of coconut oil that had been hydrogenated. Hydrogenation creates “trans fatty acids” which are toxic entities that enter the cell membranes and block the utilization of “good” fatty acid and impede cell functionality. Trans fatty acids also cause a rise in blood cholesterol. These substances are not present in coconut oil that has been processed with integrity.
Another reason people believed coconut oil must be bad for you is due to the misguided notion that all saturated fats are harmful. Our leading scientists now recognize that, just as there is good cholesterol, there are also good saturated fats. Fats are classified as short-, medium-, or long-chain fats based on the number of carbon molecules they contain. When we ingest long- chain fatty acids, they must be emulsified by bile salts in the small intestine before they can be absorbed into our body.
Weight loss Help
Nearly 2/3 of the saturated fat in coconut oil consists of medium-chain fatty acids. Short and medium chain fatty acids, such as those in coconut milk, are easily absorbed into our body. Most of the saturated fat in coconut oil is easily digestible and converted into quick energy. These types of fatty acids are less likely to cause obesity because they are immediately used as fuel by the body and have no opportunity to be stored.
When the body uses carbohydrates, insulin produced by the pancreas is required for the glucose molecules to enter into the cell. Many people develop a resistance to insulin as they age, and it becomes increasingly more difficult for the body to get these molecules into the cells. Any extra glucose, which is not used by the body for energy, is turned into triglycerides. You can have high triglycerides in your blood with consuming an ounce of fat. Even strict vegetarians can have high triglyceride levels from just eating a high carb diet. Triglycerides and lipoproteins, in the same manner as glucose, travel across cell membrane to be used as energy. They too require carrier enzymes in order to permeate both membranes of the cell’s mitochondria, where their energy is released.
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that cures a wide variety of ailments. Basically, you hold some oil in your mouth for twenty minutes, swishing it all around and between your teeth.
Oil pulling infuses your body with essential fatty acids (EFAs) sublingually (under your tongue). These EFAs enter the bloodstream, bypassing the gastric juices in your stomach. It is a fast and effective way to get some of the components of healthy oils (omega-3 and omega-9 acids, for example) straight into your blood. This explains why many skin conditions clear up with oil pulling.
The oil dissolves plaque and even tartar. Your teeth look so white after you start oil pulling. (Much whiter than with toothpaste and conventional cleaning).
Bacteria in the mouth are attracted into the oil. Normally bacteria continually grow in your mouth, and you continually swallow them. Some of these bacteria are beneficial, and you need them for good health. But many ailments occur when harmful bacteria proliferate and get out of control. If harmful bacteria proliferate in the mouth, they can provide a source of infection for organs all around the body. For example, there is research showing that heart attacks can occur after a dental procedure like a root canal provides an ongoing source of harmful bacteria. When you practice oil pulling, it provides a control over the bad bacteria and their ability to produce an infection. You are no longer continually swallowing them.
Mucus is soluble in the oil.
Oil pulling is very gentle. If you need to increase its antibiotic potency for a short period, add one drop of oregano oil to the tablespoon of the other oil. Oregano oil is a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. However, it makes the procedure potent. If you add oregano oil, you may not feel well as your healing and detox go into overdrive. I suggest you do not do this for more than one week in every couple of months.
When you get up in the morning, do this very first thing, before brushing your teeth (if you brush in the morning), eating or drinking anything. First, spit out anything in your mouth. Then take 1 tablespoon of cocnut oil and hold it in your mouth, tilt your chin up and slowly swish it around, pulling it through your teeth. Lifting your head up gets the oil to your back molars. Get it all round your mouth and tongue. Do this for at least 10 minutes but preferably 20 minutes. The oil should be a thin white foam when you finally spit it out. If it is still clear or yellow, you haven't done it long enough. After spitting it out, rinse your mouth well. Complete the procedure by rinsing the mouth with warm salt water. ( Just use normal table salt). Salt water rinsing isn’t absolutely necessary, but is very helpful as an antimicrobial and to soothe any inflammation and proven to be effective in rinsing out any toxins which may be left out in the mouth.<p>
Please understand that this process works better in the morning. Don't try to do this any time of the day. If for some reason it is absolutely not possible for you to pratice this method in the morning, you can do this on an empty stomach at any time of the day. Empty stomach means the food is digested completely. Ideally after three or four hours of you taking any food.
