When it comes to beauty having healthy blemish-free skin has always been my main priority. One night browsing Pinterest I stumbled upon a pin that lead to an article about belly button oil. I obviously had to click on this pin to see what the heck this website was selling.
I was submitting my payment information on Uma’s website after reading rave detailed reviews about this product. At first I was skeptical about buying essential oil to put in my belly button but I had a change of heart once I learned the significance of our navel passage in regards to our health.
What is Uma Beauty Boosting Navel Therapy Oil?
Uma Beauty Boosting Navel Therapy Oil is made with a combination of essential oils including neem, mustard, and tea tree oil. These oils help prevent skin impurities, moisturize, and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. Uma’s brand follows the Ayurveda philosophies. Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic medicinal practices starting over 5000 years ago in India. Its principles are based on the idea that good health relies on the balance of the mind, body, and spirit. Where does our belly button play a role in all of this you ask?
Ayurvedic traditions believe the navel signifies the origin of life since mothers provide nutrients to their unborn babies through the navel. The practice of Navel therapy is continued because it is believed that the body’s core is the foundation for balance. Due to the high concentration of blood vessels in the area, the absorption of oils through the navel is strong.
Our faces are more exposed to environmental stressors and exfoliation and the constant applications of creams and moisturizers. These factors result in the blood vessels being less effective in absorbing all the nutrients within our facial products.
How to use Uma Beauty Boosting Navel Therapy Oil
I started using my Uma belly button oil during my nightly beauty routine. I bathe in multiple moisturizers including coconut oil and The honest Co. Organic All-Purpose Balm. Then I apply Grande Lash MD Lash Enhancing Serum to my lash line. Lastly, I grab my belly button oil and lay in my bed. As instructed I apply one to two drops of oil to my belly button and massage my navel gently. At this moment I am reminded of the core attributes of the Ayurvedic tradition. The emphasis on the synergy of the body and mind. For the 1-2 minutes of massaging my navel I’m completely relaxed and preparing my mind and body for rest.
Overall, I’ve been using this Navel Therapy oil for six months and it has changed my skin for the better. My skin and lips were noticeably softer and my face was clearer after 3 months of nightly use. Applying the oil also makes me take the time to do activities that are relieve me from the day’s stressors. Since using Uma Beauty Boosting Navel Therapy Oil I realized that beauty and health are intertwined in the balance between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. This may sound crazy but who would have thought belly button oil would be a product I cannot live without.
