Using Rose Sphagnum Protective Skin Lotion for Sensory Harmony

This Sphagnum Lotion is specially prepared by Developing the Self Developing the World to support wellbeing and sensory harmony in babies, children and adults. It complements the care and protection that a caregiver provides to their child for the development of the senses. The formula has been thought through so as to nourish and bring harmony to all ages and those with sensitive skin. 100% of profits go towards the Y Project, a section of Developing the Self Developing the World that is accessible to young adults from 16 years old and provides mentors, health services, artistic programs and events that are fully or partially funded.

About the medicines

Anthroposophic medicine is an integrative medicine that extends the way medical practitioners, nurses and complementary therapists understand their practice through objective studies of the physical, soul and spiritual human being. It originates from the work of Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925) and Dr. Ita Wegman (1876 – 1943). Steiner is most well known for developing Steiner / Waldorf Education and Bio-dynamic Organic Agriculture.

Anthroposophic Medicine is now integrated into medical training in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. In other countries training is in addition to foundational studies in medicine, nursing and complementary health including homeopathy and massage. Click here to link to more information on anthroposophic medicine.

Consultations for Children

The basis of the practise at Sea Salt is to look for what is unique to each child and support parents to provide an environment that gives the child what they need to develop and participate in life in a healthy way. How each child experiences and copes with illness and life leads us to parent and treat them in slightly different ways. Too much or too little protection or exposure can create unhealthy patterns in areas such as behaviour, illness and sleep.

The prescriptions made by Louise include natural remedies to be taken orally, and therapeutic applications of medicinal plants and substances in the form of massage, baths and compresses. Children are very responsive to these therapeutic applications and parents who use them often as part of a home healthcare routine find them to be most beneficial.

An initial consultation allows 1 hour to converse and build a picture around your child’s health including birth, milestones, sleep, digestion, behaviour, sensory development, susceptibility to illnesses and environmental influences.

The consultation is a combination of conversation with the parent(s) and observation and general conversation with the child. Having time without the child being present helps to obtain information that the child need not hear.

Follow the instructions closely to gain the most benefit from this therapeutic bath. Please don’t have a nutritional bath when you are fevering or taking medication (or using drugs). And if you are pregnant you should first consult with me or your anthroposophic practitioner before dipping into this bath.

It’s simple, protein filled warmth is very powerful.

Please phone me if you have any questions.

 

What is Rose Sphagni?

sphagniSphagni Rose, or Rose Sphagni is an emulsion that has natural protective qualities. When applied to the skin it helps maintain a healthy balance in the fluids sitting just under the skin that are effected by such things as travelling in aircraft or fast moving vehicles, stress and radiation. It provides a ‘second skin’ and reduces the impact of the environment on a child’s growing body. In anthroposophic medicine it is used in rhythmical massage and/or as preventive healthcare as part of a daily rhythm. Rose is chosen for daily application for children under 7 years and the primary care-giver. In these years we aim to provide the most ‘heart-like’ environment as the child will use this as their gage of balance in later life. Lavender and rosemary are more one-sided in their qualities and may be prescribed for specific purposes when closer to 7 or older. Citri sphagni is closer to the middle and shares some similar qualities to rose, so may be an alternative to rose on a daily basis. It can be purchased direct from Southern Swan Pharmacy or from Sea Salt.

The lemon footbath is an easy, yet powerful treatment to harmonise body warmth. The result is the experience of being grounded.

Use it at times of change or transition when you need help to leave one activity and move onto the next.

It is perfect to give before bed to promote relaxation, when a child has just come home from the other parents home, after school or on a Friday night so you can breathe out work and step into the weekend more balanced.
