Earth

Today, April 18th, marks the start of one of the Earth periods of transition – the 18 day period between each of the energetic seasons. In this case the transition from Spring to Summer.

Each of the 4 seasons results from a specific energy and so the 4 seasons of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter means 4 distinct energies. But transition in nature is always progressive and never sudden. Therefore a transitional or 5th energy between each season must exist.

Earth productsIn traditional Chinese medicine, this transitional energy is represented by the element Earth.

The yellow PHYTO5 Earth product line is used for balanced skin during these transitional periods between seasons and at any time to treat skin conditions attributable to an imbalance of Earth energy: enlarged pores, toxicity, blemishes, psoriasis, acne, lymph circulation problems.

Lemon, eucalyptus, and cypress natural essential oils and millet extract are the key ingredients used to rebalance and strengthen. And the Earth facial reflex zones are the cheeks and across the centre of the nose, corresponding to the stomach, spleen and pancreas.

The other Earth periods of transition are January 18th - February 4th (Winter into Spring), July 20th – August 6th (Summer into Autumn), and October 21st – November 7th (Autumn into Winter).
