Translated from ancient Hebrew, Ozone means "Breath of God." Read on to learn about this gift from nature, and how to put its miracle working powers into action for your skin.
What is ozone?
Ozone or O3 is Activated Oxygen (O2). Ozone contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms that Oxygen contains. The additional atom of oxygen becomes a powerful, highly active element. You can catch a feel of the power of ozone after a thunderstorm, near the ocean, and when you're up in the mountains at high altitudes. The distinctive scents and feelings you experience in these places provide clues about activated oxygen.
When oxygen combines with UV rays from the sun, Ozone is also created. Ozone protects the Earth by attaching to pollutants and purifying the air we breathe. It is used to disinfect water, pools, and medical environments. It is a powerful element that has a wide variety of benefits in the proper forms and circumstances.
Ozone destroys pathogens, like bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Only pure oxygen is left behind as the byproduct. Ozone is a potent and powerful detoxifyer (think of the ozone layer purifying our air and making life on Earth possible). With its ability to tackle such things, ozone stabilized in the right form is a tremendous ally for treating serious skin problems as well.
Ozone is our environment's go-to miracle worker for cleansing. Because it contains a third oxygen molecule, it is heavier than oxygen (O2). Its because of this extra weight that ozone is able to move through the air and clean it up. It takes care of pollutants of all kinds, and also handles bacteria and viruses in its path. However, it its unstabilized form, ozone can only last for about 20 minutes.
Ozone is an excellent therapy for detoxification, and fortunately there are methods that can be used to safely and effectively stabilize it. Ozone has the capacity to carry plentiful amounts of oxygen into the cells of the body, pushing out toxic accumulations and infections.
We can use certain types of oils to stabilize a highly unstable element in a safe and beneficial way. For Elaa's products, the process starts with raw, cold pressed organic olive oil. The oil goes through an extended process where ozone is bubbled through it. The process of fully infusing the oil with ozone takes weeks to months. Once fully ozonated, the oil becomes a very thick gel. It is solid and will not flow like an oil. To retain purity and potency, the oil never comes into contact with any metal or plastic.
Skin & Ozone
When applied to the skin, ozonated oils carry their powerful properties through the cells. The oil heals damaged tissues and speeds up healing time. It works to clear bacteria (very beneficial on acne), viral and fungal infections. Ozonated olive oil stimulates the growth of new healthy skin cells. Dry skin will be moisturized, and swelling and inflammations will be calmed. Skin rashes of all types benefit from the application of properly ozonated oil.
