Vitamin E in Natural Healing & Moisturizing cream.

Vitamin E is an extremely powerful antioxidant. Oxidative stress (A.K.A. when your body doesn’t have enough antioxidants to fight free radicals) is a major cause of the deterioration of your skin’s collagen layer. Since collagen keeps your skin looking supple and wrinkle-free, you want to stave off oxidative stress with antioxidants. That’s where sweet almond oil comes in.

Antioxidant

Vitamin E is an antioxidant. It may help protect your cells from damage. This essential nutrient occurs naturally in many foods. It’s also available as a dietary supplement. Sometimes, it’s in processed foods. Vitamin E is fat-soluble. This means your body stores and uses it as needed.

The term “vitamin E” describes eight different compounds. Alpha-tocopherol is the most active one in humans.

Longer cell life

You’ve probably seen rust on your bike or car. A similar process of oxidation and accelerated aging takes place in your body when cells are exposed to molecules called free radicals. Free radicals weaken and break down healthy cells. These molecules may also contribute to heart disease and cancer.

Free radicals form as a result of normal body processes. They cause damage that shortens the life of your cells. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce free radical damage and slow the aging process of your cells, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Besides, this oil is widely demanded in perfumery for its characteristic sweet floral fragrance.

Just the name “honeysuckle” tickles the senses. And when your nose encounters the first whiff of this iconic bloom, you know summer has arrived. The only thing better than smelling its goodness is bringing the plant inside to benefit you and your loved ones. These ideas can inspire and motivate you to harness this classic flower for so many household purposes.

Very few plants bring up the memories like the delicate trumpet shapes and the sweet smell of honeysuckle vines. The scent brings to mind lazy summer days playing outside from sunup to sundown and hiding behind the walls of climbing vines. The bright red and white flowers also brought tiny hummingbirds to watch as they flitted from flower to flower. Not only does it have a pleasant scent that evokes some of my happiest memories but there are also several proven benefits and uses of honeysuckle essential oil.

Antibiotic Properties

Honeysuckle essential oil has a long history of being a popular way to treat various infections due to the antibiotic properties this oil possesses.

Treat Wounds

When my children would get cuts, I used to reach for the antibacterial cream with all the extra chemicals for pain relief and slather it all over the bandage and their wounds. And, being children, this seemed to happen several times a day. Once I started reading the research behind essential oils, they quickly replaced all the creams in my first aid kit. Honeysuckle oil helps to take care of the inflammation that is the body’s response to the wound and then protects from further infection.

Cool Down

The first-ever recorded use of honeysuckle’s cooling properties was in Chinese medicine in 659 AD, according to the Tang Bencao. At the time it was used to treat snake bites, drawing out the “hot” toxin and essentially cooling down the patient. Later, Europeans adapted this calming characteristic to relax women during childbirth. Though some still credit honeysuckle with the ability to reduce inflammation, more research would be needed to verify these claims.
