  Hi ,
Ahhhh.....Home sweet home.

I just got back from my 3rd year at Burning Man; a week long gathering of 40,000 plus people in the Black Rock Desert north of Reno. It's an experience that words do no justice. But I will say that it's the most concentration of creativity - perhaps on the planet. Radical self reliance and radical self expression. It's an opportunity to  step out of my comfort zone, and learn new things about myself and others. It continues to be a life altering experience and helps me to tap into my truest, deepest self and bring that back home to my daily life. When the all the (playa) dust settles, I'm in love with my life even more!

Lot's going on in my world......
Right before my trip I was in Seattle for two days of Uspa training with Brooke Taylor, VP of Uspa's brand development. Wow. All I can say is "I ~heart~ Uspa"! Next week I'm having a couple of awesome Seattle based Uspa educators out to the Beauty Temple to learn some luxurious body treatments. Yes, that means that fantabulous body treatments are on their way to a Beauty Temple near you! ;-) Can't wait! Lucky timing for my mom who I'll be practicing on....her and my dad arrive here this weekend. They will be around through October - yay!  

In service and gratitude,

Guess what?!?
Shawn and I had a silly but beautiful unofficial wedding at Burning Man during which he swapped out the cheap-o 'wedding ring' for my Celtic Unity Knot engagement ring! Got down on his knee and everything! Apparently he's been scheming since last December when he asked my parent's permission. I was TOTALLY taken by surprise!

George has an extensive background in botany and the beauty industry, while Vanessa is a former registered nurse, massage therapist and esthetician.
EyesOlive Leaf Extract: Oleuropein

For over 6000 years the olive tree has provided longevity and vibrant health to cultures as diverse as the Egyptians in their mummification rituals to the Mediterranean cultures in their use for infections, fever, and pain. Recent scientific advances have allowed for the concentrated extraction of the phytomedical substance Oleuropein, responsible for the leaves' healing powers.

Oleuropein's properties include:
- scavenger of free radicals
- protects skin from photo aging
- improves skin elasticity, maintaining a youthful appearance
- fights causes of oxidative stress
- reduces skin damage caused by pollution and UV rays
- improves skin hydration

Scientific Research:
Oleuropein has undergone many human trials to ascertain it's anti-aging/wrinkle efficiency. For these purposes volunteers used the product twice a day for 45 days. At the beginning and at the end of the treatment instrument measurements of skin hydration and elasticity are taken, analyzed and statistically compared. Results showed that with the 45 day use of Oleuropein on the face there was a 12% increase in skin elasticity, 81% increase in the skins ability to return to normal after stretching (like a rubber band), 7% increase in skin hydration.

Antioxidant tests performed on epithelial cells, showed that those cells covered with Oleuropein were protected towards oxidation caused by environmental damage, and in fact showed no signs of cellular change. Results also showed scientifically that Oleuropein possesses a strong anti-radical ability therefore reducing the action of UV rays on the skin. Ta-dah! ;-)
