The Orgin of Ichorian
Ichor is the golden fluid that flows in the veins. of gods and immortals, in Greek mythology. The coffee oil that we use in our body products is black like the oil that runs beneath the earth which is considered our gold.
We’ve been drinking coffee for more years than we can remember. A good cup of joe from our local coffee shop or The Mud truck right outside of our offices is how we prefer to jump start the day. Plus, we can proudly brag at family dinners about the many health benefits of latte-sipping.
Coffee Has a Very Complex Scent
Researchers have so far identified 800 compounds in coffee and many of these are powerfully tied to scent. Coffee is rich in heterocyclic compounds, which influence the flavor and smell of a substance. Humans tend to love these smells since they hit many scent receptors. This helps people form powerful connections to items with these scents including coffee.
The Smell of Coffee Elicits Good Feelings
Smells can trigger good feelings, memories, and even trauma, so it is no wonder that the smell of coffee triggers feelings of wakefulness. Coffee drinkers smell the coffee and this signals the brain that caffeine is indeed on the way, which provides stimulation. In any event, the smell of coffee and the drinking of it is something few would ever give up as the smell and taste are deeply tied to our brain’s pleasure center. This one of the reasons responsible for our addiction to caffeine.

And some research even suggests an association between intake of caffeine (which we all know coffee has in spades) and decreased risk of skin cancer.

Is Coffee Soap Good For You?
It is said that the caffeinated soaps are absorbs through your skin during your morning shower. Therefore, I would recommend an Organic Coffee Soap. One of the benefits is reducing the risk of skin cancer. A study done on groups of hairless mice shows that, after severe exposure to ultraviolet radiation for twenty days, the mice that had caffeine applied to their bodies had less than half the number of tumors on the skin, as opposed to the mice that didn’t get caffeine doses. The study showed that caffeine actually killed the abnormal cells that can cause skin cancer.
What else should you know about coffee soap.
Keep a bar close to your kitchen sink. It will remove odors from your hands. Onions, garlic and even the heat from hot peppers or even fish smells will be removed from your hands. If you don’t have coffee soap around use some of the grounds from your morning coffee pot. The coffee soap will help the smells of your garbage disposal disappear as well.
Can Coffee Soap Help with Cellulite?
Caffeine is present in almost all types of diet supplements and cellulite reducing products on the market. The caffeine helps blood flow to the skin and acts like a diuretic. Coffee soap should contain coffee grounds which helps exfoliating and the massaging process. By massaging and rubbing the needed areas this help breaks up the fat cells and decreases the lumps and bumps ever faster.
What else can coffee soap do?
Using the coffee soap on your face can help get rid of small lines and wrinkles and also if you have rosacea, it helps by constricting the blood vessels thus keeping the flush of the cheeks at ease. If you don’t have some coffee soap on hand you can use your morning coffee grinds. However the soap seems to work much better and helps add moisture to the skin with the Natural Glycerin and Organic Goats Milk, and fresh roasted Keens Beans Organic Coffee.

Ichorian Massage Bars
The benefits of massage go beyond feelings of relaxation and wellness that people may recognize.
Those who’ve dozed off under skilled hands won’t need much convincing of this, but studies show that massage can reduce sleep disturbance, linking it to the effect on the delta waves that are associated with deep sleep.
The American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society now include massage as one of their recommendations for treating low back pain, according to guidelines published in 2007.
And a study into the effectiveness of both relaxation and structural massage and other care on lower back pain found that a 10-week massage treatment reduced pain more than medications and exercises – and the effects lasted for six months. It also showed that relaxation massage was as effective as structural massage.
A regular rub-down can also help headaches, according to the Touch Research Institute, reducing the pain and frequency of a migraine, and another study finding tension headaches could be alleviated by a 30-minute massage.
Boosts mood and beats stress
Better sleep and fewer pounding heads would certainly boost the mood, but there’s good reason for feeling better after as a massage. The Touch Research Institute also found it soothes anxiety by reducing the levels of the stress hormone cortisol and boosting the levels of neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. This may mean less stress, anxiety, and depression.
Boosts the immune system
A massage may not just help you relax and cheer you up, but it may also help to improve the function of the immune system. One study by researchers at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles found that people who had a 45-minute massage had an increase of lymphocytes, white blood cells that help to defend the body from disease.
Boosts the complexion and hair
Better sleep, less stress and a better mood is bound to make you feel better, but a regular rub-down may well result in an increased radiance in your skin as well as mood. Massage increases blood flow and encourages lymphatic drainage (taking toxins out and away from cells), which is why regular stimulation may add vitality to your complexion and hair.
