Skin Candy Cocoa Butter for Abdominal Massage

What is Abdominal Massage?

It’s when the abdomen and intestinal areas are massaged with different motions and pressure. The massage action naturally helps to stimulate peristalsis, decrease
colonic transit time and increase the frequency of bowel movements. It also reduces the discomfort typically associated with constipation.

Abdominal Massage can also benefit the digestive system by relaxing the digestive organs, stimulating digestion and increasing blood flow throughout the system.

What techniques are used in abdominal massage?

The techniques vary depending on the type of massage being used, yet they all work to improve digestion and elimination. Abdominal massage is concentrated on the stomach, small and large intestines, and the muscles surrounding these organs.

Self-applied stomach massage can alleviate gas and digestive issues, as well as strengthen underlying muscle tissue. It stimulates your internal organs, including your gallbladder and liver.

Increased blood and oxygen flow helps to improve organ function. In the case of your gallbladder and liver, improved function means efficient release and removal of waste products. Improved blood circulation benefits the blood vessels of the entire abdominal cavity.

How To Do Self Massage.​

Lay down with your knees up and moving your knees from left to right. This helps the flow. Remember to breathe deeply while you massage as it helps with oxygen flow and relaxation.

Now apply Chocolate Mint Skin Candy onto your abdomen. With a gentle light pressure, using both hands, massage your stomach using clockwise circular strokes.

As your abdomen relaxes you can apply a little more pressure.

Massage for 15 minutes twice a day.

It has been found that performing the massage with essential oils of peppermint offers an additional aromatherapeutic benefit and helps to improve constipation symptoms even more than massage alone.

Why Peppermint?

Peppermint​ is an herb that belongs to the Lamiaceae family in the genus Mentha and botanically named Mentha piperita. Originally native to Europe, peppermint is now cultivated in nearly all regions globally.

The health benefits of peppermint oil include its ability to treat indigestion, respiratory problems, headache, nausea, fever, stomach and bowel spasms, as well as for pain relief.

It is extremely helpful as an aid for digestion.

You see peppermint is what is known as a carminative and therefore helps in removing excess gas. It is also a good for those who have a low appetite, and it helps treating motion sickness, nausea and upset stomachs.

Peppermint calms the muscles of the stomach and improves the flow of bile, which the body uses to digest fats.

Menthol and methyl salicylate, the main ingredients in peppermint, have antispasmodic effects, with calming effects on the gastrointestinal tract.

A number of studies have also shown it to be a great reliever of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

The stimulating effects of peppermint oil have been shown to increase blood circulation. In fact, studies have shown that as soon as the essential oil vapor touches the end of the olfactory nerve endings, there is an almost instant increase in pulse rate and blood circulation. The stimulating effect of increased blood circulation helps to oxygenate
the body’s organs and increase metabolism.

Did you know? … cocoa butter is the fat source used to make chocolate, even healthy chocolate! …. and it’s the cocoa butter that gives it’s alluring, ‘melt-in-your-mouth’, silky texture. 

The main health benefit of Cocoa Butter comes from its cocoa mass polyphenol.

 

According to a 2014 study published by the Dept. of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Molise, Italy; cocoa and cocoa products are important sources of phytocompounds with nutritional and therapeutic value. A growing body of scientific evidence is available to support that cocoa components with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory activities contribute to sun protection and are beneficial for maintaining skin health.

How do we get Cocoa Butter from the Cocoa Bean?

First of all, the beans are fermented, roasted, and then separated from their hulls.
Actually about 54% to 58% of the residue is cocoa butter. Then the butter is deodorized so as to remove its strong taste. Cocoa butter adds scent and smoothness to the skin products.

What are the Active Reagents?

The main active reagents are:

  • oleic
  • stearic
  • palmitic acids

There are about equal amounts of each.
Oleic acid, also found in olive oil, is a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.
Stearic and palmitic acids are saturated fats.

  • It is a pure, edible vegetable fat extracted from the cocoa bean.
  • It is a pale-yellow in color.
  • It is also called theobroma oil or theobroma cacao

How to Use Cocoa Butter Topically

Stretch marks:
It is used successfully as a treatment for stretch marks that result from pregnancy. In that it’s full of Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E,  it’s the prefect choice to use as a moisturizer to maintain skin health and encourage the marks to fade.

Eczema & Dermatitis
It is often used in treating eczema and dermatitis. Why? When cocoa butter is applied topically, it creates a barrier between the sensitive skin that has been affected by eczema or dermatitis and the environment and this helps in keeping in the needed moisture.

Also, cocoa mass polyphenol (CMP) is the substance that prevents the production of the immuno globulin IgE. This is extremely helpful as IgE is known to aggravate both dermatitis and eczema flare ups.
