Please allow us to brag a bit while we share important info. with you about our holistic and energetic facial and eye serums...
Our serums are one of the reasons why PHYTO5 has been named the de facto “World Leader in Energetic, Natural and Holistic Skincare” for both treatment method and products and for both skincare professionals and consumers.
Natural essential oils, properly extracted, have been used for millennia for their therapeutic properties. Large numbers of holistically oriented professionals and people who love to live holistically use essential oils today in a variety of healing ways.
But when the founders of the PHYTO5 energetic skincare method–often referred to by its original name of Phytobiodermie–used natural essential oils in their formulations in the very early 70s in Europe, their intent was novel and their products groundbreaking.
They worked with the vital energy properties of the plants and of their essential oils. Using established but little known classifications of the energy properties of essential oils, they followed the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (known as the 5 Element Theory) to blend selected oils understanding that blended oils have a synergistic effect and this same principle applies to their energetic properties.
Since the five elements define all skin conditions into five groups of specific causes and their effects, the PHYTO5 products were refined into five families. Each family was named after the element associated with one of the five components of vital energy (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water). Each family of products bears the perfect blend of holistic and essential oils to balance the condition associated with that element by restoring vital energy flow and quality.
The essential difference from one product family to another is the specific blend of holistic essential oils present in each family of products. Each PHYTO5 product has its own function, but the uniquely value added found in PHYTO5 holistic products is the vital energy potency arising from the presence of the blended holistic essential oils.
To be clear, each family has its own blend, but the concentration of the blend specific in each skincare product of each of the five families varies.
The strongest potency is found in the five holistic and energetic serums that define the five energetic lines of PHYTO5.
We call the serums Phyt’Ether. They are 100% natural, holistic and energetic. They have a double action as indicated by their name: the word “Phyto” or abbreviated to “Phyt” meaning “plant” in Greek and the “ether” referring to the etheric field that envelops our physical body.
The essential oils make skin penetration better, but the aromatic molecules also emanate and disperse into the etheric field offering a balancing benefit to our energetic body. In addition, the molecules penetrate through the olfactory system of nose, expressing as aromatherapy.
These natural essential oils blends are foundational to PHYTO5’s holistic approach to skincare. They work on the surface of the skin, penetrate below, and benefit not only the body’s enveloping energetic field but they also go to work within the body as they penetrate through the nasal and buccal ways. Their action is to address not only cosmetic skin issues but their energetic root cause as well.
Another aspect of the holistic value of the serums and PHYTO5 energetic skincare is their seasonal aspect.
In traditional Chinese medicine, as it is in the case in other energy medicines, we recognize that humans, like animals and plants, are affected by seasonal changes. Those changes are related to the apparent movement of the sun relative to the earth. Each one of the four seasons plus an 18 day period of transition between each season constitute the five energetic seasons of the year.
Each season has its own energetic influence on all living entities. PHYTO5 holistic skincare takes these changes into consideration and recommends a balancing regimen that follows the calendar of the five energetic seasons.
Each element has an aspect of energy in harmony with each season. For that reason, each one of the five PHYTO5 families of products can be used to help stay in balance during each energetic season.
In the northern hemisphere, the Wood line is in harmony with the Spring, the Fire line with the Summer, the Metal line with the Fall, and the Water line with the Winter. The Earth line is in harmony with the transitional periods of 18 days that repeats four times a year.
In the southern hemisphere, the Earth season is the same, but Springtime is the inverse timing of Fall and Summer with Winter.
The phrase “essential oils” is liberally used these days but we wonder about the integrity of the sources and extraction process for most. Blending essential oils is powerful when you know the science in the way PHYTO5 knows it. Sample just one product and you’ll see what we mean!
