Book: Awakening Beauty




Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way
by Susan West Kurz
$23.76


A-list celebrities, professional makeup artists, and Hollywood stylists have long embraced Dr. Hauschka’s botanical products, attracted by their extraordinary results and the company’s thirty-five-year commitment to purity, therapy, and luxury. Now the same extraordinary results are available to the rest of us through a rejuvenating prescription for healing. In Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way, Susan West Kurz, president of Dr. Hauschka, Inc., and a longtime devotee of the company’s products, offers readers a transformative program grounded in Dr. Hauschka’s key principles of natural ingredients and working with the body’s rhythms. Her suggestions, when followed, naturally restore healthy, radiant skin and a sense of peace and well-being, and can even result in weight loss. 

This book contains some references to balancing your humors.  She suggests that we flow between the humors in different moods and can work to seek balance.  "Choosing the bath, exercise, or meditative practice that's right for you depends on your ability to see your current imbalances.  One of the most effective tools for self-examination and rebalancing is the Four Temperaments."

Choleric Temperament: Let's Get it Done - Now!
Sanguine Temperament: All is Groovy
Phlegmatic: Everything's in Order, and I Want to Keep It That Way!
Melancholic: He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother

"Cholerics should take a lavendar bath to relax and relieve tension.
Sanguines should take a spruce oil bath to ground and focus.
Phelgmatics should take a lemon bath to break up stagnation, awaken the nervous system, and warm the body.
Melancholics should take a rosemary bath to warm the body, boost the circulation, elevate the mood, and ignite the inner fire."
