What Skin Color Are You?

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s most popular quote is from one of his most popular speeches. In His, I Have A Dream speech he said, “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” It was a powerful statement based on a great biblical truth.

When God sent the prophet Samuel to Jesse to anoint one of his sons as king, Samuel, looking at Jesse’s oldest son, assumed he was the one to anoint. But God said to Samuel, “… for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.” I Samuel 16:7b

What if we in this country would see people, all people, as God sees them? Sadly, many in our culture today continue to make skin color the dominant and ultimate issue.

I recently watched a video of the comedian Sam Adams, taking a lighter look at skin color, and he made a great point. He told his audience he is not black; he he then told them what his true color is, and why. You can easily find that video on the internet. Meanwhile, here are some of my thoughts about skin color, racism, privileged people and identity politics.

Racism

On the serious side, we are living in turbulent times here in the United States where the term “racist” seems to be at the forefront in almost every discussion about almost every issue. It’s not only sad, but it’s alarming that these days, if you don’t agree with certain people, seemingly for any reason, they quickly label you a racist.

No one can argue the fact that there are people in this world who have prejudices, sometimes very extreme prejudices, against other people who look or act differently than they do. That is not going to change. We all inherited a sinful nature after the Fall, recorded in Genesis 3. And so, there have been, there are, and there will always be those who display disdain or worse toward certain other people.

I’ve read a number of articles, and one recently by Ken Ham, entitled, Are There Really Different Races? He pointed out a number of things I have believed for a long time. It’s a rather lengthy article but well worth your time to read it. 1

There Is Only One Race

Regardless of culture, geographical location, or skin color, we are all human beings. We are all descendants of Adam. The Bible makes this abundantly clear in Acts 17:26: “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;”

The word “men” in that verse is the Greek word, anthrÅ pos. It means human beings; all human beings. According to God’s Word, we are all related, by blood. Regardless of culture, geographic location or skin color, there is only one race, the human race.

One can take the time to do some honest research regarding “racism.” The origins of what we today call, “race” began in the mid 1800’s. There are many scientific studies and related articles that debunk so much of what many believe and promote as racism.

The United States Is NOT “Systemically Racist”

I wholeheartedly disagree with the highly promoted notion that the United States of America is a “systemically racist” country. Systemic means predominate. Those who promote that are saying the whole of the US has been and still is today, predominantly against human beings they label as, “black people.”

As this country grew and evolved, people from many different cultures, geographic locations and various skin colors arrived and faced difficult times. Those labeled as, “black people,” suffered and endured more than any other group of people. But our country has made huge progress.

We are no longer living in the 1860’s. We are no longer living in the 1960’s.

We elected a man, labeled as, “black,” to the highest office in the country; not once but twice! Add to that there are today, US Senators and Representatives, as well as State Senators and Representatives; there are Governors, Mayors, City council members, and judges at every level including the Supreme Court. And how about “black” billionaires, millionaires, revered sport figures, large and small business owners, teachers, doctors, literally every walk and station of life. And we need to include all the contributions made to the arts, including literature, music and films. And this country is systemically racist? No..

Are there some people in this country who are prejudiced against other human beings? Without a doubt. Are they the majority? Far from it. But there are those today pushing hard to get people to believe that if you have a much lighter skin color, you are a racist whether you know it or not. If you disagree, it’s because you are denying it, and you’re still a racist.

There are some people who are prejudiced against other human beings for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to language or accents, lifestyle, beliefs, and, yes, color of skin. Human nature is far from perfect. But to say those who have a lighter skin color are all racists, is the same prejudice in reverse. And we are told over and over that those with the fairer skin color have more privilege in society than people of color.

When it comes to privilege, why do those with seemingly intellectual privilege get to be surgeons and scientists? Is that fair to those who do not possess equal intelligence? What about those with athletic privilege? Is it fair they get to play major league sports and make millions while others do not? And how about those with great voice privilege who end up with lucrative recording contracts. Is that fair to the rest of us?

Without a doubt some people have more advantage than other people for a variety of reasons. Perhaps a better question would be, “What about those who choose to work hard, overcome whatever obstacles or disadvantages they face to become successful?” Is that fair for those who do not?

The Real Privileged People

As I mentioned earlier, God’s Word is plain: there is but one race, the human race. In the Old Testament God highly favored a certain group of people, the descendants of Abraham. As such, they were much more privileged than the other people during those days. When they followed God’s words, He protected and took care of them.

And when the time came, God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the savior of the world. And Jesus Christ fulfilled all that was necessary to redeem mankind. Since then, God lovingly offers an invitation to “whosoever.” And that invitation comes with tremendous privilege, real privilege.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

God so loved the world. It doesn’t say, white people, tall people, rich people, etc., it says, “the world,” all people. The invitation is to “whosoever,” anyone and everyone in the whole human race. Those who accept the invitation by confessing the Lord Jesus and believing in their heart that God raised him from the dead are saved! They are born again; they obtain eternal life. And in doing that, they become the most privileged people on the planet!

All the people on the earth are not God’s children; only those who get born again. The Bible says those who are born again are God’s children. To think that God Almighty could literally be your Father! Now we are talking about some privilege!

The New Testament reveals and details tremendous privilege that God’s children have, including obtaining eternal life, receiving God’s spirit within, access to the Father by way of the spirit, all trespasses forgiven, made righteous in God’s sight, no longer under the Law, a verdict of not guilty, a guarantee of meeting Jesus Christ in the clouds when he returns, and many more exceeding great and precious promises!

Talk about privilege! Born again Christians are the most privileged people on the face of this earth. And, as such, we are delighted to invite others to the party!

Identity Politics

For those who are born again, when it comes to identity politics, there’s absolutely no room for any of that with God’s children, regardless of skin color, nationality, station in life or any other category.

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

The Bible teaches that those who are born again are all part of One Body, and each member is important and needed, with their different longsuits and abilities to contribute so we can serve one another. And the head of this One Body is Christ.

Born again ones can discover from the Bible all the rights, privileges and abilities they have as a child of God, and take advantage of them, or not. They can choose to trust and believe God to help them in their everyday lives. Or, they can choose to be a victim, finding a reason why their life is so difficult, while others are successful. Those who do choose to trust and believe God will be blessed.

Meanwhile, in our country, shouldn’t Christians be demonstrating the love of God toward all people? If God loves all people, shouldn’t we do the same? Shouldn’t we reject those who seek to divide us by promoting identity politics, and instead see every person as an American, with the freedom and opportunities this great country affords them? And shouldn’t we lovingly promote godly principles instead of succumbing to the secular culture that seems to be gaining more ground day by day?

Until we stop looking at skin color, unique talents and abilities, station in life and all the rest, and do what God does, not look at the outward appearance, but look at the heart, we are going to have problems and divisiveness in our country. We could start by teaching our children to not look at the color of someone’s skin, but on the content of their character.

Benefits of LED Light Therapy for Skin

Benefits Of Led Light Therapy For Skin
google news

LED light therapy can have numerous benefits for the skin. It’s a procedure that is non-invasive. It’s generally used to help treat different skin issues. This type of therapy can be used to help with acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and more. There are also different types of light therapy to be aware of when it comes to considering this treatment. Because it’s non-invasive, there’s no worry about downtime or anything of that nature. Wondering if you should go ahead and seek out light therapy treatment yourself? Here are some of the top benefits that you could potentially get from getting light therapy. 

Benefits Of Light Therapy: 

1. Help With Acne and Other Skin Conditions

Acne is a condition that many people deal with. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not just a skin condition that you deal with in your teens. There are plenty of people that suffer from acne beyond their teenage years. However, it does generally affect more of those who are 11 to 30 years of age. It’s estimated that as many as 80% of people that are aged 11 to 30 will have some mild form of acne [1]. How does light therapy help those suffering from acne conditions? It can help because bacteria aggravate acne. The bacteria that is known to play a significant role in acne is known as propionibacterium acnes [2]. Without the presence of this bacteria, a lot of acne issues won’t become problematic. Thus, anything that can kill off this bacteria can help ward off acne issues. Because the wavelength of blue light has antimicrobial effects, it can kill off a lot of bacteria that you may have on the surface of your skin. These are bacteria that can get trapped in skin pores and cause inflammation. There was a study of those who were treated with blue light for 5 weeks and 77% of them saw improvements in their acne skin condition during this time [3]. 

2. Anti-Aging Effects 

Blue light therapy can also help by getting rid of free radicals on your skin. Your skin is exposed to pollutants and other free radicals that can cause oxidation. This oxidation can result in premature ageing of your skin. Thus, it can be a good anti-ageing treatment. The blue light can effectively help keep your face looking young by reducing free radical exposure. Another way that light therapy can be effective for those who are looking to experience anti-ageing benefits is through a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines. These signs of ageing are generally unavoidable. You get wrinkles as you age. However, there are things that you can do to minimise wrinkles and fine lines. One of those things is getting light therapy treatment. It can help to target these lines and minimise their appearance of them by smoothing out the skin.

3. Promote Healing

One of the best things about light therapy has to do with its ability to promote the healing of your skin. Our skin is constantly being exposed to all kinds of things that can result in inflammation and other issues. This is especially important if you already have a specific skin condition that can result in things like scarring. It can be difficult to get rid of scarring, red spots, and more. With light therapy treatment, you can promote faster and better healing in your skin. This is especially true as it relates to red light therapy. Red light therapy can speed up the healing of your skin and it can even reduce acne-related scarring. Red light can penetrate much deeper into your skin which can help to repair the tissue in it. This isn’t the same for other wavelengths that target the surface level of your skin more than the tissue level. Thus, if you do have chronic skin conditions, red light therapy could be more effective.

What Are Some Potential Risks For Getting Light Therapy Treatment? 

It’s good to know what benefits you can get from a treatment or procedure, but it’s equally important to know if there are any risks associated with it. Because light therapy is non-invasive, you don’t necessarily have to worry too much about risks. The side effects that you can get from light therapy treatment aren’t too bad. As long as you follow the instructions, you’re generally not going to experience any significant side effects. However, there are mild side effects to be aware of when getting the treatment. 

– Inflammation

While light therapy is meant to help combat inflammation, you could notice more inflammation because of it. This is a purely temporary side effect. However, your skin may respond negatively to it. 

– Rash

This is another side effect that could occur after your light therapy treatment. A rash is a form of inflammatory response. This rash could come with both increased redness and perhaps some pain.

If you are interested in getting light therapy treatment, you aren’t alone. It’s becoming increasingly popular due to its effectiveness and because it’s non-invasive. If you have a skin condition that can be treated with light therapy, it could be a non-invasive alternative to some of the more invasive procedures or medications. You’ll want to speak with your dermatologist to figure out if it’s right for you. It’s a treatment that can deliver good results if your skin responds well to it. However, it’s not for everyone. You’ll want to speak with your dermatologist to figure out if you’re a good candidate for it.

The Perfume Industry: What You Should Know

The Perfume History

The art of making perfumes started back in the centuries of ancient Romans, Arabs, Persians, Indians, and Orientals. It was the Tapputi, from Mesopotamia, who were known to be first recorded as the perfume makers back in 1200 BC.

A chemist developed the first nascent methods for extracting perfumes. She documented the techniques on cuneiform tablets. India is also known for making perfumes.

Ancient Ayurvedic is an ancient medical system that mastered the distillation process of perfume, also known as ‘ittar’. However, Cyprus was dated as the oldest perfumery.

It’s where archeologists conducted an excavation finding a massive perfume factory as big as 4,000 square meters. The factory existed four millennia ago or during the bronze age.

During the 6th Century, the Islamic countries started contributing to the modern perfume-making process. Given that they are traders, they have access to global ingredients needed for making perfumes.

We should be thanking the Arabs and Persians for initiating scents like amber, jasmine, musk, roses, and woody scents. They also initiated scents like citrus fruits, herbs, and spices.

During the 14th Century, the concept of perfumes came to Europe, courtesy of Arabic traders. The Hungarians first used scented oils in an alcohol solution. They initiated the first modern perfume-making process.

During the 18th Century, France took over when Louis XV reigned. Until now, they have been considered the worldwide hub of perfume. Soon after, fragrance bottles wholesale was born.

How To Make Perfumes

Perfumes are made when oils are extracted from natural substances. There are different substances like fruits or flowers. They go through processes like steam distillation, solvent extraction, maceration, and expression.

After the oil is collected, it will be blended according to a special formula developed by a perfumery or company. Once the scent is ready, it will be mixed with alcohol and water in proportion.

Perfumes are not far from wines. It will be more expensive if left to age for months or years after the final blending.

Notes In A Perfume

To make a perfume, you carefully create a blend of essential scented oils. Then, mix them with solvents like alcohol or water. Then, place them in a very nice appropriate bottle and a perfume box.

There is a life cycle of fragrance. Perfumes have different notes of scents. Think of it as a pyramid of notes, starting from the top to the heart, then settling with the base.

When you spray perfume on your wrist, you initially smell the ‘top note’. It’s lighter that it spreads through the air. It only lasts for 15 to 120 minutes depending on the concentration of the fragrance.

Typically, top notes include citrus and fruity scents. They also have light floral scents like lavender.

The effect of the top note clears off. Then, you will smell the heart of the perfume. It’s the main essence of the perfume emanating around 30 minutes and lasting about 4 hours.

Usually, heart notes smell like heavy florals. They give the most distinctive smell when associated with your skin like the wrist, elbows, and neck.

It’s an ultimate advantage in making perfumes because of the presence of can filling and sealing machines. They make things easier and faster.

Perfume’s Base Note

If you have sprayed perfume at night, there’s a lingering smell left behind when you wake up in the morning. This is what you call the ‘base note’. It comes out and lasts for 12 hours once the heart notes faded.

Base notes have heavy smells. Are you familiar with musk, herbs, woody scents, vanilla, and vetiver?  They are examples of base notes.

Different Perfume Categories

There are four main categories of perfumes. We have floral, fresh, oriental, and woody. Learn more about the four below.

Floral encompasses one or more flowers. It’s the most common among the perfume categories. It’s also known as the classic type of perfume.

Usually, flowers like roses, lilies, jasmines, violets, marigolds, and lotus are used for perfume-making. Also, the most award-winning perfume has at least a floral note. It’s just the most romantic perfume to spray on!

Floral is the second category which includes a gamut of fruits. They include citrus or green fragrances. Lemons, oranges, grapefruits, peaches, and berries are some of the fruits with vibrant scents used for perfume-making.

Green fragrances mean scents from leaves, moss, or herbs. They give off energizing, surprising, and unisex smells. Yes, there are those who like this kind of smell.

Oriental includes incense-inspired scents like amber, sandalwood, patchouli, and vetiver. These are a few of the oriental ingredients that lend such a scent. Usually, they are sourced from the east and you can wear them to have a formal and exotic aura.

Lastly, woody notes are the heaviest and strongest category of perfumes. They are used to make a bold, sexy scent which is best used in the evening. These expensive scents include oaks, woods, musk, tobacco, and leather.

Conclusion

The perfume industry is very interesting. It revolves around mixing scents and essential oils. One has to learn the three notes of scents and the four main categories of perfumes.

They are easy to learn but take time to study. The industry is still growing, which is a very good opportunity for businessmen to try.

Perfume businesses don’t only stop at mixing the perfect scents but also place them in the right packaging that can be found in suppliers like soda glass bottles wholesale.

Concluding all of this, it’s safe to say that the perfume industry is flourishing. Not only is this a lucrative industry, but this is also one of the best ways to create a thriving business. Just make sure you know how to do it correctly always.

Natural Gardeners Soap Recipe That’s Not Just for Gardeners

Natural Gardeners Soap

Whether you’re planning to grow a garden this year or not, my natural gardeners soap recipe is a must for your next weekend project. It’s made using a combination of naturally exfoliating ingredients like flax seed powder, shredded loofah, calendula flower powder, poppy seeds, and fine ground pumice. Melt & pour soap bases to make soap making easier

However, you don’t have to use the same exfoliants as I did for scrubbing power. If you’re on a budget, I recommend the Exfoliant Sampler from Bramble Berry. It contains 1 oz. each of eight different natural exfoliants for just $15.

Or simply sift through your own cache of soapmaking supplies to see what other ingredients you can use. (You can even make an inventory list while you’re at it so you know just what you have on hand and accidentally order supplies you already have.)

In addition to the exfoliants used to remove tough caked on dirt, paint or motor oil – dealer’s choice! – this homemade soap is highly cleansing to help rinse away stuck on grease, grime and sweat.

To balance out those cleansing suds, I did give my natural gardeners soap recipe a higher super fat. It also ranks pretty high as a conditioning soap as well due to the addition of baobab oil, mango butter and fractionated shea oil.

Finally, I rounded off my natural gardeners soap recipe with an earthy essential oil blend of ylang ylang, patchouli and blood orange. But feel free to swap out my essential oil blend recipe with your own favorite essential oil blend.

Get started with essential oils with classic essential oil kit!
Or try a garden themed fragrance oil for a more budget friendly scented option. I like this garden dirt fragrance oil. While garden mint is also another one of my favorite scents.

Natural gardeners soap recipe that’s not just for gardeners! It doesn’t have to be gardening season for you to enjoy this natural gardeners soap recipe. In fact, you don’t even need to be a gardener at all! Formulated to quickly and easily wash away tough dirt and grime, you’ll find that this natural gardeners soap is also a great option for mechanics, artists and kindergarten teachers. So if you know how to get good and dirty, then this soap is for you.

Natural Gardeners Soap Recipe

Ingredients:

You will need the following ingredients to make the gardener’s soap:

  • .8 oz. baobab oil (5%)

Gardeners Soap Making Notes:

Here are my notes for making this cold process gardeners soap recipe:

As my natural gardeners soap recipe yields a somewhat softer soap bars, I used a steep water discount. The water weight for this recipe is 25% of the oil weight. Additionally the super fat is 8%.
You can use this information, if desired, to resize my natural gardeners soap recipe using a lye calculator. It’s also useful if you’re wanting to make changes to the super fat or water percentage.

Learn more about using a lye calculator to adjust a homemade soap recipe or to craft your own custom cold process soap recipes with the information found in this tutorial.

For an extra, extra super scrubby soap, you can double the amount of exfoliants called for in the recipe to 1 teaspoon each.

I also offer several beginner soap recipes to try before attempting this soap including this beginner soap recipe and my palm-free olive & babassu soap recipe.

How to Make Gardeners Soap

Here is how to make natural gardeners soap using the cold process soap making method:

  • Begin by preparing the lye solution for my natural gardener’s soap recipe. To do this, measure out the distilled water into a heat-safe container. In a separate container, weigh out the lye called for in the recipe. Then pour the lye into the water – I recommend a well-ventilated area – and mix until the lye has completely dissolved. Now set the lye-water solution aside in a safe location to cool.
  • While the lye solution cools, weigh out the carrier oils and butter called for in the recipe. Combine in a stainless steel pot. Then gently heat the soapmaking oils on the stove over low heat just until the solids have melted.
    Remove the soapmaking oils from heat and allow them to cool.
  • In the meantime, if you’d like to color your natural gardener soaps, measure out the colorant. (The usage rate for micas is typically 1 teaspoon per pound.) Then weigh out the essential oils and combine in a small glass beaker.
    Once the oils have reached 90°-95°F you are ready to make soap.
  • Check the temperature of both the soapmaking oils and the lye solution before you begin. Both of these ingredients should be within ten degrees of one another.
  • Now add your choice of colorant, if used, to the soapmaking oils. Mix briefly with an immersion blender to incorporate the colorant throughout the oils.
  • Next, pour the lye solution into the soapmaking oils and mix with the immersion blender until you reach a light trace. You’ll know you’ve reached trace when you drag the blender through the soap batter and it leaves a visible trail behind. It’s a little like pudding.
  • Add the essential oils to the soap batter, then continue mixing until thoroughly combined.
    Once you bring the soap to a medium trace, pour the soap evenly into six of the cavities of your round silicone mold. Then gently cover the soap with plastic wrap or parchment paper.
  • Set the soap aside for 24-48 hours. After this time you can unmold your natural gardener’s soap bars.
    Allow your soap to cure for four to six weeks in a cool, dry location. After that, your homemade soaps are ready to use.vedaoils
