“Rainforest Remedies is the line of traditional herbal and topical healing products formulated by Dr. Rosita Arvigo based on her work with Don Elijio Panti in Belize. Don Elijio as a traditional Maya healer introduced Dr. Arvigo to the healing herbs and topical treatments used for centuries by traditional Maya healers in Central America. Dr. Arvigo combined the knowledge Don Elijio shared with her and her physician understanding of human physiology to formulate a set of remedies which address many of the common ailments addressed by Don Elijio in his traditional practice. The Rainforest Remedies line also includes products which support both the physical and spiritual healing process of the Maya.” (from Rainforest Remedies)
In our office when coming to see one of our Arvigo practitioners, they will use Maya Moon Oil during your treatment.
Maya Moon Oil is an all purpose healing oil. Ingredients: Nine sacred Maya herbs collected with prayer, GMO-free Vegetable oil, Jojoba and Olive Oils, essential oils of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Lavender, and Lemon Grass.
These herbs are grown and sourced in Belize from a farm specific to the Rainforest Remedies and Arvigo Therapy. They are grown without pesticides or herbicides and are cared to by a small family who live and work the land along with the founders of the Rainforest Remedies company. The plants are harvested with blessings of thanks to the Earth for providing us such a tool for effective treatments. The herbs are then dried and processed on the premises before being shipped up to the US and abroad for use. All work is done with care to the environment so that these herbs will remain available for many years ahead. When we practitioners purchase oils for ourselves to use in the office, or for resale to clients, we know we are financially supporting these herbs farms and protecting the land that is always under threat by deforestation. The Arvigo Institute has for many years been buying up land in Belize to preserve and protect the rainforest as it is not it’s primal state. At Stepping Stone we are happy to not only provide our practitioners and clients the use of these oils, but are happy to sell them as well for at home self-care. Ask your practitioner about the Maya Moon Oil and how you can bring some home today.
