Clarins X Arthritis: October 2017

I am a huge fan of Clarins' Tonic Body Treatment Oil ($64.) It is an iconic Clarins product, formulated with 100% pure plant extracts, aromatic blends of bitter orange, geranium, basil and chamomile essential oils. It soothes the senses and promotes overall relaxation.

On long winter days, after an afternoon of skiing, I pour a teaspoon into a hot bath, and really soak in the fragrance as the oil softens my dry, chapped winter skin. In the summertime (the bottle is big and lasts me through many seasons) I will apply the oil to my parched, salt-kissed skin after a day at the beach. It is just so soothing!

Clarins raises funds for Arthritis research. Together, we can help find a cure. This month of October, with the purchase of a 3.3 Fl. Oz. bottle, Clarins will make a special donation on your behalf to the Arthritis foundation. 

As a Yogi and barre teacher, I constantly hear of students aching from arthritis pain. I suffer from mild arthritis, especially after a day of practicing inversions. Handstands really tend to bother my wrists lately, and I am taking precautions to avoid surgery in the future. The fight against arthritis truly resonates with me, and I'd love if you could help me spread the word.

1 Tonic Body Treatment Oil* sold = 1 donation to fund research 

As a token of your contribution to this cause, you will be gifted a precious blue bracelet, color of the fight against Arthritis.

Fondation Arthritis & the Clarins Family: A special connection

Jacques Courtin-Clarins, whose wife was suffering from rheumatoid polyarthritis, founded the Association for Polyarthritis Research in 1989. Today, as a tribute to their beloved mother and grand-mother, the Courtin- Clarins family pursues this fight against arthritis through the Fondation Arthritis, a non-profit with the mission to advance early diagnosis, new therapeutic pathways, and restore hope for millions of patients.

*This oil is a cosmetic product. It has no therapeutic action on rheumatoid arthritis.
