By Brigitte Thito, founder of Family Self Care
More and more of us want to take care of our health naturally, SelfCare1 ensures that. Essential oils, which are derived from plants, are a great way to treat our health. Those curious about aromatherapy find themselves asking many questions. Which essential oil is best for my problem? Can I combine several for greater efficiency? What’s the dosage? How long is the treatment? Are there any contraindications? What is the best mode of intake: ingestion, inhalation, or topical?
For more than 20 years, my job in the pharmaceutical industry has been to study the daily health needs of families. I noticed that the therapeutic power of essential oils was not always well understood. Either essential oils were limited to a cosmetic or wellness approach, or those who understood their therapeutic power had abandoned their use because of their complexity. So I decided to create the SelfCare1® app.
My vision for SelfCare1 goes beyond the desire to simplify the use of essential oils. I wish to combine the ancestral powers of natural health care with today’s technology, in order to establish new health habits that are more respectful to our bodies and our way of life.
SelfCare1 is also an expression of my commitment to a new form of sustainable development. Day-to-day prevention reduces the use of traditional medicine, limiting chemical pollution and wasteful packaging.
The SelfCare1 application simplifies the use of essential oils on several levels.
SelfCare1®: Ease of use
Our application is very easy to use. You create your profile and choose your concern. For example, if you have acne, you go to the “skin” section and indicate whether this is a recurring concern. The app then recommends a custom blend, dosage and duration. It offers several methods of application and informs you of possible risks associated with the essential oils chosen for the mixture. This eliminates risks or adverse effects because your profile takes into account your intolerances and contraindications.
The recipes proposed by our algorithm have been validated by pharmaceutical experts for guaranteed safety.
SelfCare1®: Prevention at your fingertips
Why take the risk of getting sick? The change of season is just around the corner and a cold front is announced: anticipate and strengthen your immune system with an application that identifies the appropriate preventive treatment. Prevention is the best way to avoid getting sick.
The phenomenon of bacteria resistance is increasing and conventional antibiotics are proving to be less and less effective. On the contrary, antibacterial essential oils combine many complementary bactericidal molecules, thus preventing the resistance of bacteria.
SelfCare1®: the choice of quality
SelfCare1 is designed to work with 8 basic essential oils known for their effectiveness to treat a wide spectrum of disorders: sleep, vitality, small concerns, stress, digestion, and other issues. By combining them, our application enhances their effectiveness and takes into account any allergies or irritations to certain oils.
In skin use, essential oils are always diluted with vegetable oil. For our blends, we recommend grapeseed oil which will serve as a support to transport aromatic active ingredients in your circulatory system. Rich in antioxidant fatty acids, it is as well suited for topical use as it is to oral ingestion.
For optimal use of our application you can order our kit consisting of 8 essential oils and 1 grapeseed oil by visiting the “shop” section of our website, www.familyselfcare.com.
All our oils are certified by the USDA approved. They provide us with organic and chemotyped essential oils, which is a guarantee of absolute quality.
With SelfCare1®: Save money!
Our app allows you to save money. 9 oils may suffice for not just yourself but your entire family. In addition, in the event of an essential oil breaking, our algorithm adapts and recalculates a new formula in the same safety conditions and for similar results.
With SelfCare1®: No need to think about it!
Getting into aromatherapy is easy. Sticking to it is more difficult. That’s why SelfCare1 helps you in creating your blends as well as managing your everyday life. For each program, you receive notifications reminding you to take your oils. With one click, you’ll find all the information about your custom mix. The app also offers you handy fact sheets on the different application methods, so you can get started with ease
SelfCare1®: Coming soon- The Launch of our first essential oil dispenser!
Our future smart dispenser of essential oils is scheduled for release in early 2020 and will allow you to optimize your application. It is equipped with a replaceable cartridge composed of the same oils as our kit. Our dispenser’s technology precisely dispenses the essential oil combination. By combining the application and our intelligent distributor you will be at the cutting edge of technology. I invite you to discover firsthand all the advantages of our dispenser SelfCare1® on www.familyselfcare.com.
The SelfCare1® application is in line with our philosophy of combining the natural power of plants with state-of-the-art technology for optimal use. It is aimed at those who wish to emphasize the daily health needs of families while emphasizing prevention.
My entire team and I are working hard to make the SelfCare1® application a practical and indispensable natural health tool for you!
