I had an epiphany this past week. Isolated events are sometimes perceived as chance events but I have realized that there is no such thing as chance, but rather we live in a God ordained world full of meaning and purpose. No matter is considered too small for God.
While washing a wine glass like a mad woman (that I can sometimes be), I cut my knuckle on my right hand quite severely so that I am now terrified to wash any glass. I needed stitches but my caring husband applied his expert first aid skills using butterfly strips, and I was rescued from the hospital waiting room. As it started to heal, I experienced such tightness of skin it was difficult to move it without any pain. Shelby, of course encouraged me to use her products on my scar, but I thought, what does she know? Shelby Naturals is for my face not injuries. I began to research on the net what I could do to get this injury healed and this is when I had the epiphany. The more I researched the carrier oils and essential oils to make my own ointment, I suddenly remembered that these same ingredients were in Shelby’s products! I dug out my products and refreshed myself with all the ingredients on the label and her website descriptions. Wow, I thought these really are excellent products!
Now don’t get me wrong. I have complete trust in Shelby’s line and have been using them for years. People cannot believe how old I am when I tell them. But I suddenly realized that I had become so used to her products and the results that they produced, that I kind of became complacent about it and forgot about what they were actually DOING on my skin. Is this you? Are you a long-time user? Like I said, all events have meaning and this injury helped me to rediscover Shelby Naturals! I started using the serum- full of phytonutrients, phytoceramides, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamins A,B,C,E, and cell oxygenating collagen building blend that right away I quickly noticed a return of elasticity and healing to my hand.
I know some people don’t need the science/knowledge to use a product but that is not me. I want to know exactly what each and every ingredient is, the benefits, the quality and why did Shelby choose those ingredients and finally formulate the product that she did. When I started going over her website and reading about all her products, it reminded me why I love Shelby Naturals. I encourage all you committed users to remind yourselves of just how beneficial all the ingredients are and what they are actually doing on your skin. Shelby has proven to me once again that her pure and excellent quality and intricate product development produces incredible results!
This injury also put me on the path of rediscovering another product that Shelby created that I use everyday, but I will save that for another article. Stay tuned for part two if you suffer from age spots.
