Herbs On The Rise: Les Nouvelles Esthétiques dedicates issue to the rising trend

(PRWEB) August 28, 2004

Chamomile to relieve nervous tension. Eucalyptus and basil to combat colds. Lavender to soothe skin. Herbs have moved out of our gardens and kitchens and into other areas of our lives, particularly in health-related industries, including the spa and esthetics industry. Always at the forefront of industry trends, Les Nouvelles Esthétiques magazine has dedicated its August issue to the topic of herbs.

LNE’s “herb issue” covers a range of issues dealing with herbal use in the spa and esthetics industry, which has witnessed a surge in the use of herbs as ingredients in topical treatments, as well as a growing number of spa guests who use herbal supplements in their diets.

Among the varied article features and topics in this special theme issue, readers will find the following stories and much more:

• In “Cool Running,” Diana Howard, Ph.D., offers a discussion of anti-inflammatory herbs

• “Herbal Rx” by Irene Heiney covers the findings of 19th-century priest Sebastian Kneipp, who preached the therapeutic benefits of herbs and plants

• Readers will find an overview of the basic tenets for using herbal supplements in “Natural Drugs”

• In “Botanica,” makeup artist Pamela Taylor paints an earth-inspired palette

• The American Association of Clinical Chemistry provides information on why natural does not always mean safe when it comes to herbs in “Deadly Combinations”

“Our primary goal at LNE has always been to educate our readers and to impart the latest trends and issues facing the industry,” says Monica Schuloff Smith, LNE editor in chief.

“With the rising trend of herbal use in spa and skin care treatments, it is essential that spa professionals understand the issues surrounding the use of herbs and supplements so that they can share their knowledge with their clients,” Smith adds.

The American edition of Les Nouvelles Esthétiques has been in circulation since 1985 and is the only monthly publication in the industry devoted exclusively to skin care and spa professionals. The focus of the magazine’s articles is to educate skin care and spa professionals in all aspects of the beauty industry.

Les Nouvelles Esthétiques was founded more than 50 years ago in Paris, France. With a global network of 19 publications and 19 trade shows worldwide, the company remains the largest international source for esthetics and spa professionals.

Bak Kut Teh herbs

Julia’s dad was curious as to the authenticity of a Chinese herbalist’s blend of 肉骨茶 Bak Kut Teh, literally "meat and bone tea" in Hokkien.

We all concluded that it was too sweet, most likely because of the 党参 Dang Shen, 罗汉果 Luo Han Guo, and 甘草 Gan Cao. Or perhaps, we should have diluted it further and added more salt or soy sauce to balance it. Or, we could just go with a good brand like A1 or Claypot brand pre-packed herbs 🙂

The Bak Kut Teh blend consisted of:
– 当归 Dang Gui / Angelica Sinensis – female ginseng
– 党参 Dang Shen / Codonopsis pilosula – poor man’s ginseng
– 罗汉果 Luo Han Guo / Siraitia grosvenorii / Monk’s fruit
– 玉竹 Yu Zhu / Polygonatum odoratum / Jade Bamboo
– 甘草 Gan Cao / Glycyrrhiza uralensis / licorice root
– 熟地 Shu Di (dried beetroot i think…)

Our herbs often sold as little plants growing in tiny plastic pots. It’s seldom that we use the whole lot at once, so my husband usually replants them into a bigger pot. Sometimes we are lucky, like with this lemon balm. Not only does it bring the welcome greenery into our kitchen but it also provides its scent and lovely hint of minty lemon into many dishes.
