Skin Problems


There are many reasons why we suffer from skin issues. The climate we live in, our home and work environments, and the food we eat all contribute to the quality of our complexion.

But, it’s not just physical things which affect the quality of our skin. Our emotional life contributes significantly to our appearance… and, if we have a toxic emotional life you can guarantee this will very much be in evidence on our skin.

Rashes & Breakouts

Have you ever wondered why you develop rshes and breakouts? And, have you noticed there’s a pattern to them?

More often than not stress is the culprit behind imperfect skin. Sadly, stress triggers a complex set of events which ultimately surface up through your skin.

Very simply, this is how it works…

Stress negatively impacts our gut –> our gut starts dtysfunctioning –> because our gut produces and regulates most of our hormones, as well as our neurotransmitters, it creates a vicious cycle of stress and anxiety –> so our skin takes a pounding…

Why Me?

But, why do some people who have similarly stressful lives have perfectly clear skin?

Well, there can be a number of things influencing this… most of them emotional…

  • Perfectionism and other impossible standards we place on ourselves and others will predispose us to breakouts and rashes.
  • So will an inability to express our emotions… particularly our anger. Unexpressed dissatisfaction and anger have a nasty habit of bubbling up to the surface through our skin.

The best antidote for these issues is to remember we are human, and that it’s actually our job to get things wrong, (we learn best from our mistakes)… Plus, anger is all part of the human experience, and it is pretty darned useful! It is great for revealing how we feel in relation to stuff… and, a great way of letting others know how you feel too!

So, welcome to the human race!

**Sadly, perfectionists and those with impossible personal standards tend to get triggered into anger a lot more frequently than other people…

Overly judgmental people, or those who compare themselves negatively with others or are jealous and envious of others… even those who simply struggle to accept aspects of their lives will all be more prone to skin problems.

My heart goes out to everyone struggling with these issues. I have spent decades trying to trade my judgements for better discernment! Saying something is not as easy as doing it! I very much wish you well in your efforts to evolve! ♥ The world will be a happier place when we succeed. ♥ And, we will be a whole lot happier too! ♥

The work for people who have any of these issues is to realise they are enough, and they have enough, and that when you realise this you don’t care what others have. When we accept ourselves and our lot in life, we have a much easier job of accepting everyone else, and judgment gets replaced by the much more healthy discernment.

Universal Law

A lot of these issues fall into the concepts covered by Universal Law. To employ the principles of Universal Law is all part of our spiritual evolution.

Evolvong spiritually leads to a greater sense of personal acceptance, inner joy, and a greater sense of fulfilment… and, quite often… better skin!

Best Healthcare and Skincare Information Sources.

Wild As The Wind use a number of resources when deciding which essential oil formulas to put together for optimal healing and efficacy, as well as to support any health claims we may make.

We use the industry ‘bible’ on essential oil safety: Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals [2nd Edition] by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, to establish the safety of the Wild As The Wind formulations.

We owe a particular debt to GreenMedInfo, and, of course, the teachings of Penny Price and Patricia Davis.

Many of the scientific studies used to inform the claims made on this website are via GreenMedInfo, as well as via Dr. Josh Axe, Ty Bollinger on the Truth About Cancer website as well as, on the odd occasion, Dr. Eric Zielinski
