Developed and produced in Germany, Olera Naturkosmetik products feature paracress extract, the best thing in cosmetics, and each product is comparable to needle injections containing Botulinum Toxin (without having to inject anything!) The results are similar, but are much simpler and safer to use! Can you really look younger in just 60 minutes? Yes, you can! All of their specially formulated products contain spilanthol, derived from the paracress plant (Acmella oleracea, where the company gets its name).
Spilanthol is derived from the paracress plant and has a tightening effect on the skin, thus reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Used in topical formulations, it can easily penetrate the skin, constraining contractions in subcutaneous muscles. In a clinical study, 75% of patients realized the smoothing effect of Acmella Oleracea extract (Gatuline Expression) straightaway, observing results as quickly as within 30-60 minutes from the first application.
Acmella oleracea extract is considered a natural and safe alternative to Botulinum Toxin (Botox). Applied topically, cosmetics containing this extract reportedly reduces muscle tension, reducing facial wrinkles caused by tense or contracted facial muscles. It is considered a natural muscle relaxant and has been traditionally used as an herbal Orajel of sorts, used to numb toothaches thanks to the presence of analgesic alkylamides. Spilanthol is thought to have the same paralyzing effects on facial muscles as it does on gums, reducing wrinkles by relaxing the skin. It’s seen in many topical formulas and can easily penetrate the skin, inhibiting contractions in subcutaneous muscles. Patents are being developed to use the extract of the paracress plant as a safe alternative to toxic Botox.
Results highlighted below show a significant reduction of fine lines and wrinkles at the décolleté and neck level, with skin appearing smoother and softer. Analysis by cutometry also showed a significant improvement in skin firmness and tonicity. It's no wonder why paracress plant extract is viewed as the best thing in cosmetics.
Their signature Olëra Ultra Beauty Balm and the all new biOlëra Ultra Skin Gel, when applied to target areas, act as a soothing agent with major lifting power. They are quickly absorbed by the skin to make it soft and supple. Unlike needle injections, they do not numb your face or restrict your facial expressions. Your features will still be animated and beautiful. All for a fraction of the cost of other similar products.
Their Olëra Anti Aging Clay Mask will leave your face feeling tight and fresh, as if you just returned from the beauty spa. When used in combination with their Olëra Ultra Beauty Balm you will feel and look twenty years younger.
Over the ages, the ancients did not simply observe the movements of the celestial bodies but personified them and created stories about them that were recreated upon the earth.
Out of this polytheistic, astrological atmosphere came the “greatest story ever told,” as the gospel tale is, in fact, astro-theological and non-historical, recording the mythos found around the globe for eons.
Thus, the Christian religion, created and shored up by forgery, fraud and force, is in reality astro-theological and its founder mythical, based on many thousands of years of observation by the ancients of the movements and interrelationships of the celestial bodies and the earth, one of the favorite of which was, understandably, the sun.
The sun figured in the stories of virtually every culture worldwide. In many places and eras, the sun was considered the most visible proxy of the divine and the most potent bestower of Spirit. It was regarded as the first entity in “the Void” and the progenitor of all life and matter. The sun also represented the Archetypal Man, as human beings were perceived as “solar entities.”
In addition to being a symbol of the spirit because it rises and sinks, the sun was the “soul of the world,” signifying immortality, as it is eternally resurrected after “dying” or setting. It was also considered the purifier of the soul, as noted. Hence, from at least the Egyptian age down to the Gnostic Christians, the sun, along with the moon and other celestial bodies, was viewed as a “guide” into the afterlife.
We know that it is not pleasant for the eyes to behold the direct light of the sun; it is, however, pleasant for humanity to behold the sun as it rises in the morning, bringing light and life. Indeed, the sun itself is the “face of the divine” upon which it is impossible to look.
Thus, the sun was very important to the ancients, so much so that around the world for millennia a wide variety of peoples have built solar temples, monuments and entire religions with priestesses and priests of the Sun, along with complex rituals and accoutrements. Within these religions is contained the ubiquitous mythos, a template or archetypical story that personifies the heavens and Earth, and rolls them into a drama about their interrelationship.
Rather than being an entertaining but useless “fairytale,” as myths are erroneously considered to be, the mythos is designed to pass along from generation to generation information vital to life on Earth, so that humans do not have to learn it repeatedly but can progress. Without the knowledge, or gnosis, of the celestial mythos, humankind would still be in caves.
The celestial mythos is complicated because the solar myth is intertwined with the lunar, stellar and terrestrial myths. In addition, some of the various celestial players were introduced later than others, and many of them took on new functions as the focus switched from stars to moon to sun to other planets, and back again.
For example, Horus is not only the sun but also the North Pole star, and his twin brother-adversary, Set, represents not only darkness but also the South Pole star. Furthermore, as time progresses and the skies change, as with the precession of the equinoxes and the movements of the sun annually through the zodiac and daily through its “houses,” as well as with cataclysm, the attributes of the planetary bodies within the mythos also change.
The Sun of God
Within the Sun Book or Holy Bible was incorporated by such priest-craft the most consolidated version of the celestial mythos ever assembled, the story of the “son of God.”
Thus, the son of God is the sun of God.
The solar mythos, in fact, explains why the narratives of the sons of God previously examined are so similar, with a god-man who is crucified and resurrected, who does miracles and has 12 disciples, etc.: To wit, these stories were in actuality based on the movements of the sun through the heavens.
In other words, Jesus Christ and the others upon whom he is predicated are personifications of the sun, and the gospel fable is merely a repeat of a mythological formula revolving around the movements of the sun through the heavens.
For example, many of the world’s crucified god-men have their traditional birthdays on December 25th (“Christmas”). This date is set because the ancients recognized that (from a geocentric perspective in the northern hemisphere) the sun makes an annual descent southward until after midnight of December 21st, the winter solstice, when it stops moving southerly for three days and then starts to move northward again.
During this time, the ancients declared that “God’s sun” had “died” for three days and was “born again” after midnight of December 24th. Thus, these many different cultures celebrated with great joy the “sun of God’s” birthday on December 25th.
On the 1st of January of every year, many countries around the world celebrate the beginning of a new year. But there is nothing new about New Year’s. In fact, festivals and celebrations marking the beginning of the calendar have been around for thousands of years. While some festivities were simply a chance to drink and be merry, many other New Year celebrations were linked to agricultural or astronomical events. In Egypt, for instance, the year began with the annual flooding of the Nile, which coincided with the rising of the star Sirius. The Phoenicians and Persians began their new year with the spring equinox, and the Greeks celebrated it on the winter solstice. The first day of the Chinese New Year, meanwhile, occurred with the second new moon after the winter solstice.
The Celebration of Akitu in Babylon
The earliest recorded New Year’s festivity dates back some 4,000 years to ancient Babylon, and was deeply intertwined with religion and mythology. For the Babylonians of ancient Mesopotamia, the first new moon following the vernal equinox—the day in late March with an equal amount of sunlight and darkness—heralded the start of a new year and represented the rebirth of the natural world. They marked the occasion with a massive religious festival called Akitu (derived from the Sumerian word for barley, which was cut in the spring) that involved a different ritual on each of its 11 days. During the Akitu, statues of the gods were paraded through the city streets, and rites were enacted to symbolize their victory over the forces of chaos. Through these rituals the Babylonians believed the world was symbolically cleansed and recreated by the gods in preparation for the new year and the return of spring.
In addition to the new year, Atiku celebrated the mythical victory of the Babylonian sky god Marduk over the evil sea goddess Tiamat and served an important political purpose: it was during this time that a new king was crowned or that the current ruler’s divine mandate was renewed. One fascinating aspect of the Akitu involved a kind of ritual humiliation endured by the Babylonian king. This peculiar tradition saw the king brought before a statue of the god Marduk, stripped of his royal regalia, slapped and dragged by his ears in the hope of making him cry. If royal tears were shed, it was seen as a sign that Marduk was satisfied and had symbolically extended the king’s rule.
Ancient Roman Celebration of Janus
The Roman New Year also originally corresponded with the vernal equinox. The early Roman calendar consisted of 10 months and 304 days, with each new year beginning at the vernal equinox. According to tradition, the calendar was created by Romulus, the founder of Rome, in the eighth century B.C. However, over the centuries, the calendar fell out of sync with the sun, and in 46 B.C. the emperor Julius Caesar decided to solve the problem by consulting with the most prominent astronomers and mathematicians of his time. He introduced the Julian calendar, a solar-based calendar which closely resembles the more modern Gregorian calendar that most countries around the world use today.
As part of his reform, Caesar instituted January 1 as the first day of the year, partly to honor the month’s namesake: Janus, the Roman god of change and beginnings, whose two faces allowed him to look back into the past and forward into the future. This idea became tied to the concept of transition from one year to the next.
Romans would celebrate January 1st by offering sacrifices to Janus in the hope of gaining good fortune for the New Year, decorating their homes with laurel branches and attending raucous parties. This day was seen as setting the stage for the next twelve months, and it was common for friends and neighbors to make a positive start to the year by exchanging well wishes and gifts of figs and honey with one another.
Middle Ages: January 1st Abolished
In medieval Europe, however, the celebrations accompanying the New Year were considered pagan and unchristian-like, and in 567 AD the Council of Tours abolished January 1st as the beginning of the year, replacing it with days carrying more religious significance, such as December 25th or March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation, also called “Lady Day”.
The date of January 1st was also given Christian significance and became known as the Feast of the Circumcision, considered to be the eighth day of Christ's life counting from December 25th and following the Jewish tradition of circumcision eight days after birth on which the child is formally given his or her name. However, the date of December 25 th for the birth of Jesus is debatable .
Gregorian Calendar: January 1st Restored
In 1582, after reform of the Gregorian calendar, Pope Gregory XIII re-established January 1st as New Year’s Day. Although most Catholic countries adopted the Gregorian calendar almost immediately, it was only gradually adopted among Protestant countries. The British, for example, did not adopt the reformed calendar until 1752. Until then, the British Empire, and their American colonies, still celebrated the New Year in March.
