Becoming a professional manifestor with Spiritual Alchemy

Posted by Juliana Kuzminova on

We have all heard of the book “The Secret”, that uncovers the truth of our ability to manifest our wishes.  At frecklefarm organics, we have been applying the principles of “The Secret” and Spiritual Alchemy for over a decade, and we wanted to share our experience with the readers on how to become a professional manifestor and take control of your life using those principles.

Spiritual Alchemy is a process of purifying your soul to reach enlightenment, similarly to Alchemy using common metals, such as lead, to put them through a series of purifying processes until they become gold.    A journey that separates the physical from the spiritual only to reunite the two into fully harmonious whole as we come into full alignment with our highest self. The journey involved 7 processes described below.


In Alchemy, calcination involves the element of fire and refers to heating a solid to high temperatures, for the purpose of removing impurities.  Spiritually, Calcination burns away the ego’s grip.  It may feel like everything we hold true is being endangered, as if someone pulled the rug right under our feet and we are free-falling through the abyss of the unknown, being torn to fragments, and then being burned to ashes.

Even though this may be painful, this process makes us realize that we have outgrown something that is no longer needed.  This stage allows us to break down our ego to see what is behind the veil.

The key is to surrender to this process, allowing the universe to unveil the lessons so that we allow it to burn away what is no longer serving our us.


Dissolution involves the element of water to support the process of releasing outgrown beliefs.  This stage of transformation is often brought about by hardships in our lives, shocking us out of our complacency.

The idea is to accept and express our emotions caused by trauma and painful events, while detaching from the experience, that triggered them in the past for them to get transmuted.

This is the beginning of spiritual maturity and spiritual awakening process.


The process of separation involves self-reflection to become aware of our authentic intuition hiding behind the ego.  During this process we feel disappointment and frustration with ourselves and/or others rather than ignoring the issue.

On the flipside, by being in tune with our intuition and our expression allows the Separation process to unfold.  The separation process deepens our understanding and appreciation of our emotions so that we can integrate our intuition into our daily life.


 The Conjunction relates to the heart and to the earth, where the spiritual meets the physical and the higher states of consciousness may be unified. 

There are fewer fears, and we start seeing our mistakes as necessary lessons for the awakening to occur at the right time. We begin to see the divine timing in everything and that everything happens for a reason.


During this process we must again faces the ego’s attempt at dominance, however this time our experience is different.  We have a sense of higher force assessing us, that provides the support system needed to have better control over ourselves.

Putrefactions continues until we have “stewed in our own juices” enough to enter Fermentation.  


Just as Phoenix rises out of ashes, in Fermentation, a new wisdom may arise, based upon the breaking down of former beliefs.  We may suddenly become aware of why we act and feel a certain way, as old beliefs that no longer serve us fade away.


During the process of Distillation, we realize that we are all interconnected.  We become more interested in the greater good of all, rather than in fulfilling our own ego.   

A distilled person surrenders to the higher forces and works with the moment of now to tune into their inner self.


As we transform from a caterpillar into a butterfly we embody self-aware, divine co-creators of our collective reality with a full understanding of the interconnection to all there is and that the inner and outer world are not different but a reflection of each other.  We become professional manifestors and co-creators of our own reality.

Marula Oil Benefits for Skin

Posted by Juliana Kuzminova on

What Do Cosmopolitan, Allure and Marie Claire have in common? 

Yes, they are all amazing fashion forward beauty magazines, but also they agree on how amazing the benefits of Marula Oil are for the skin. This is the new 'it' oil, and we've got it!!! We know all about the benefits of Marula oil and that's why we use it as a base for our 'prana' and 'blue velvet' face serums along with other 'it' oils such as prickly pear fruit oil, argan oil, black current oil, and many more.  Marula oil is a versatile oil that has an impressive list of benefits and works excellent for all skin types. Yes, even oily, acne prone skin can benefit from this miracle oil.    

See for yourself what these major magazines say about this miracle oil...

As described By Marie Claire... “Marula oil is harvested from the nut inside the sweet marula fruit and has been a hallmark skincare cure-all for the Ovambo women in northern Namibia for centuries. Whether used unrefined on its own or as a key ingredient in a more complicated product, it's light in texture, super fast-absorbing, packed with nutrients and fatty acids that fight environmental aggressors, and *amazingly* hydrating.

Basically, it's got everything we want in an oil and then some—marula oil contains 60 percent more antioxidants than other oils, even our beloved Argan. So, what, exactly are all of it's beautifying powers? Here's everything that you need to know:

It works for every skin type: From dry to oily to sensitive skin, it's always naturally soothing, fast-absorbing, and never leaves a greasy residue.

It balances moisture levels: Whether it's used on its own or added to a skin product, a few drops on the face, neck, and décolleté will lock in moisture without leaving a thick residue. Plus, it will fight off free radicals that threaten your complexion. (You can also add a few drops to your foundations so they won't be as drying to the skin.)

It softens: It will leave your skin ultra-smooth to the touch in an instant, but just as importantly, it will help maintain that silky texture by hydrating and reversing the damage that left skin rough in the first place. Miracle worker? We say yes.

It's a total anti-ager: It's chock full of fatty acids and omega oils, as well as Vitamins E and C, which work together to repair free radical damage, like that from the sun exposure or pollution, which accelerate aging. It's been shown to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep-set wrinkles.

It fights acne, as well as treats blemishes and scars: Thanks to its hydrating and antimicrobial properties, applying it to your problem areas can help reduce the size and appearance of all kinds of blemishes. It can also reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks."


As described in Cosmopolitan magazine...  "With a natural makeup that comes close to the oils your own body creates, marula oil — harvested in South Africa from the nut inside the marula fruit — plays nicely with your skin, healing and hydrating it without clogging or irritating it. How? It contains a high amount of antioxidants and essential fatty acids like omegas-6 and -9, which do a ton: They protect your skin from environmental aggressors (sun, pollution, wind, etc.) that can cause premature aging, and they absorb deeper and more easily into your skin, since the molecules are much smaller than traditional hydrating oils. (Traditional, thicker oils will sit on top and just lock existing moisture in.)

Scared of oils as an acne sufferer? This oil helps battle breakouts — for real! It's non-comedogenic because it's so high in omega fatty acids and absorbs quickly, so it won't clog your pores. And it can actually heal your blemishes faster (as it hydrates your skin), thanks to its antimicrobial properties that help fight future bacteria."


As described by Allure... "...pretty much everything short of bringing peace to the middle east...it's time to meet the new oil on the block: marula. It has a lot of selling points. It's moisturizing, but it won't clog your pores.

"It's rich in essential fatty acids that mimic those that exist naturally in the outer layer of the skin," says Joshua Zeichner, an assistant professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.

It also contains the antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E and flavonoids.

But the best part? It's a surprisingly non-oily oil: "It's quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving you greasy," says Zeichner."

    • Adds a glamorous glow
    • Antidepressant and aphrodisiac

      Key Ingredients and their benefits:

      Marula Oil: Marula oil is lightweight and absorbs easily. This makes it an effective moisturizer for dry or aging skin. It may be beneficial for smoothing and softening fine lines, preventing stretch marks, and keeping skin hydrated and well-nourished.

      Rosehip Oil: One of the best oils for both optimizing healthy regeneration of skin cells and softening and smoothing scar tissue. It is fantastic for protecting and nourishing skin of all ages.

      Olive Squalane:  Squalane is naturally found in olive fruits. The oil is light and easily absorbed into the skin without a greasy film. Leaves skin soft, smooth, silky and supple humectant.

      Argan Oil: Rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids, Argan oil has anti-aging and restructuring properties and is suitable for all skin types from very dry to oily. It can help prevent stretch marks and scarring and has anti-inflammatory and sebum regulating properties making it a useful addition in products for acne.

      Pomegranate Oil: This rare oil softens and rejuvenates by promoting healthy new cell growth making it excellent for nourishing dry and mature skin types. Rich in nutrients and anti-oxidants, pomegranate seed oil is both moisturizing and protective to the skin and has anti-ageing properties. It is a rich oil that works best blended with other oils for use in facial and body care products. It also has anti inflammatory properties making it useful in treating minor skin irritations.

      CoQ10: fat-soluble substance present in all human cells. It is responsible for cell protection and production of the body’s energy. A handful of studies have shown that coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) may have an effect on skin and the appearance of wrinkles, most notably by reducing UV damage, stimulating healthy collagen production, and reducing sub-stances in damaged skin that wreak havoc on its support structure. The latest research suggests that topical application of CoQ10 has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.  

      Red Raspberry Seed Oil: The oil works by creating a lipid barrier that stops skin from losing natural moisture. Retaining moisture helps to keep skin cells looking young and full. Raspberry oil adds hydration, sun protection and nourishing vitamins.

      Kalahari Melon Oil: Kalahari melon seed oil is super-rich in linolenic acid; which makes up between 50% and 70% of its entire content. Used on the face, it gets to work unclogging pores and removing excess sebum from the surface of your skin. It makes skin look firmer and the appearance of wrinkles are often reduced. Packed full of antioxidants, and Vitamins A, C and E, it has a hydrating and tightening effect when applied.  It reduces inflammation caused by conditions like acne, as the combination of skin-friendly vitamins have a soothing effect. Kalahari melon seed oil is extremely light and easily absorbed by the skin. The oil can be effective at helping to repair skin damage and scars. Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids aren’t created naturally within the body – so they must be added for their benefit to be realized. These stimulate skin cell growth, prompting regeneration and giving skin a much plumper, fresher appearance.

      Camellia Seed Oil: Camellia oil is high in antioxidants and the fat-soluble vitamins A, E and D. It is perfect for dry, ageing, sun damaged or sensitive skins and is gentle enough to be used in baby products.

      Daikon Seed Extract: Daikon Seed Extract possesses a very rare blend of C20, C18, and C22 Fatty Acids, which is a driving force behind the oil's hydrating and rejuvenating qualities. Radish Seed Oil is a natural emollient, proving it is equally beneficial for the hair as it is for the skin. The main chemical constituents of Radish Seed Carrier Oil include Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Folic Acid, Zinc, Palmitic Acid, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Gadoleic Acid, Stearic Acid, and Erucic Acid.

      Prickly Pear Fruit Oil:  This carrier oil is high in Omega 6 fatty acids which work on dry skin, and help to hydrate and restore moisture. It works on the skin by helping to increase its ability to absorb oils and serum. The fatty acids contained in the oil help to replenish collagen which is an important part of maintaining skin's elasticity. The vitamins E and K in the oil work well on skin that looks tired and dull. These nutrients work on the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, improving the quality of the skin and making it smooth and fresh, without being sticky or greasy. The polyphenols which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help alleviate damage from the harsh sun. The main constituents of the prickly pear carrier oil are linoleic acid, oleic acid, naturally occurring carotenoids, Omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin C, and flavonoids.

      Baobab Oil: Baobab Oil is packed with nutrients and minerals providing a wide range of skin care benefits. It nourishes the epidermis of the skin, the outermost layer of the skin that provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone. This has the effect of softening the skin and giving it greater elasticity. It is used as an effective treatment for stretch marks helping to reduce their appearance. It can also help with a range of skin disorders including eczema, sunspots and psoriasis.

      Açaí Oil: Açaí oil is a stunning green lipid that helps maintain optimal skin balance with its impressive antioxidant content and emollient properties. This oil can effectively restore skin elasticity, minimize the appearance of wrinkles and scarring, protect from oxidative stress, visibly even skin tone, mitigate visible signs of inflammatory conditions like acne, and effectively soothe dry, cracked skin. Açaí is packed with fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, anthocyanins, and polyphenols. Recently, research has shown promise for acaí oil as an inhibitor of melanin biosynthesis (tyrosinase inhibitor). It’s shown effectiveness being used on the treatment of melasma and age spots

      Sea Buckthorn CO2: Sea buckthorn oil contains a number of compounds that can be beneficial to human health. These include fatty acids, including gamma linolenic acid (omega-6) and palmitoleic acid (omega-7)vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin E and antioxidants, such as flavonoids and polyphenols. According to a 2021 review of previous studies, sea buckthorn oil possesses several medicinal properties too. It is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory

      Black Currant Seed Oil:  Black Currant Seed Oil is packed with rich amounts of fatty acids, Vitamin C and polyphenol phytochemicals, which makes black currant oil a desirable ingredient for skin care. The oil is mainly comprised of essential fatty acids (e.g.  linolenic acid, linoleic, and linolenic acids). Given its overall lipid content, black currant oil is well-tolerated in oil-based emulsions and proves effective in penetrating the skin’s surface. Subsequently, black currant oil constituents demonstrate their ability to integrate amongst the skin’s membrane barrier, which results in improved water-retention and an overall increase in skin hydration. Secondly, as a source of Vitamin C and phytochemicals, black currant oil contributes antioxidant protection that helps to protect the skin from harmful free radicals present in the environment.

      24k Gold: Gold particles have been shown to have antioxidant properties and therefore could help protect the skin’s surface from damage caused by free radicals.

      Toxic Ingredients to Avoid in Conventional Skincare

      Posted by Juliana Kuzminova on

      Increasing amount of studies have shown that these chemicals included in most conventional skincare are found to be carcinogenic.  I share this with you in hopes to spread the message to the consumers so that corporate companies can take accountability for the products they produce.

      Many skincare brands include petroleum bi-product called MINERAL OIL, yes, it's a petroleum product that causes many skin conditions, including cancer.  

      Why Should I avoid Mineral Oil?

      Mineral oil is a colorless and odorless oil that’s made from petroleum. Our skin does not recognize this as a nutrient and it does not penetrate the skin. However it provides a coating that may feel smooth to the touch but it's actually harmful because it prevents our pores to breath and eliminate toxins from our body properly, causing breakouts on the skin and disease in the body.

      See other toxic  ingredients to be avoided below: 

      What do you think?

      here at frecklefarm organics we believe a healthy skin care routine is one part of six basics we follow to having radiant skin and life.

      • organic skin care is an important aspect of staying healthy and being beautiful.
        • skin is your biggest organ and has many functions:
          • it helps to regulate body temperature, bacterial colonies on its surface form part of the immune system,
          • it is one of the most important organs of elimination- sweating out toxins and waste products from the body,
          • it is an environmental barrier – preventing our water-rich bodies from drying out, sensory nerves are abundant in the skin – making it an invaluable organ of touch. 
          • the skin, when stimulated by uv light, also produces the pigment melanin, this darkens the skin to pro-tect it from sun-damage.
          • produces its own moisturizer called sebum from special glands called sebaceous glands.
            • sebum also contains natural salts and lactic acid which help to maintain the natural and slightly acidic (4.5 to 6) of skin and hair. over or under production of sebum can result in either greasy or dry skin and hair. 
          • make sure your skin care is edible because if you wouldn't eat it, it doesn't belong on your skin. many conventional products are packed with harmful ingredients that are being carried into your body.
          • look at the ingredients and know what to avoid. 
      • nutrition is a major part of how you feel and how you look. it is important to understand that the skin, like every other part of the body, is self-repairing, self-maintaining and exclusively constructed from the nutrients provided in the diet. our body goes through a complete renewal cycle every 7 years, where all body parts are renewed. skin is able to completely replace itself every 30 days.  guess what is used to regenrate your skin: nuitrients from the food you eat.  you really are what you eat. eat healthy and you will have more energy, look and feel better.
      • hydration is essential to having smooth, firm skin without cellulite. the quality of the water is also important, tap water is full of chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, synthetic hormones and recycled sewerage! a water filter can help with this and it is possible to get filters to use on taps and showerheads too. the skin cells, just like every other cell in the body, are over 70% water and this need must be fulfilled to keep those cells perky.   
      • rest! stress is one of the major reasons of early aging and all disease. if you want to be healthy and look healthy, make sure to get enough beauty sleep.  
        • "You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day - unless you're too busy; then you should sit for an hour.” - Old Zen adage  
      • exercise your body. it's a machine that needs to use all the parts, or they get rusty and stiff. exercise increases the blood flow (and hence the flow of nutrients) to the skin cells. also by doing fun exercise like trampoline. you lift your spirits and conciousness. yoga enhances your life balance, stimulates and opens up all parts of your body.
      • stay positive! if you want to see miracles in your life - stay positive and grateful, set positive skin goals. you will see how your life unfolds based on your thoughts alone.  #truth
