There's a good chance you've never heard of Kybalion – a philosophical novel written way back in 1908. But now, one hundred years later, its content is something we can all resonate with somehow.
Fungi for Holistic Beauty and Wellbeing
Kybalion describes The Law of Correspondence, which follows the idea that "as below; so is above". It suggests that our current outer reality is actually a mirror of what's happening inside us. It shows the importance of creating harmony and agreement between our inner and outer realities. And in turn, by creating equilibrium and enhancement within, we will experience it on the outside.
We can also apply this mindset when uniting our inner and external beauty. Our outer beauty attracts, and our inner beauty captivates, so with Nature's Antidote as an ally in our health, skin and beauty regimes and daily rituals, medicinal herbal products can help us incorporate this preventative healing into our everyday. In a nutshell, let's radiate from the inside out.
It turns out that mushrooms are truly magical. It's well known that the use of medicinal mushrooms can boost our immune systems as well as support our mental and cognitive clarity. However, more recently, these tiny fungi have been shown to have a profoundly positive and healing effect on our skin too.
Chaga is excellent for fighting against ageing and irritation in our skin. Environmental damage, pollution and sun exposure are responsible for radical free damage in the body. Our friend Chaga, full of antioxidants, vitamin D, melanin and selenium, is said to have the potential and power to combat the impact of what's called oxidative stress – better known as wrinkles and sagging.
Reishi can also work wonders in supporting the health of our skin. With its high levels of triterpenes and beta-glucans (immune system assisting sugars), Reishi supports the skin's natural ability to hold onto and retain moisture, helping to nourish and hydrate dry and irritated skin. Reishi's highly hydrating property has been compared to hyaluronic acid, an ingredient featured in countless skincare brands throughout the past few years for its "hydrating superpower". Reishi also has antihistamine, antimicrobial and antiallergenic qualities. This cocktail of properties stimulates the immune system, enhances circulation and accelerates skin healing, making it an excellent tool against sunburn, wounds, insect bites and rashes.
