In the midst of the chaos of the Middle Ages and the Inquisitions, rose an astounding woman named Hildegard von Bingen – one of the most visionary and incredibly gifted spiritual women of the 12th Century – and of all time.
Hildegard was the founder of a Benedictine religious community; a teacher and preacher; a composer of music; a poet and artist; and herbalist and pharmacist, and a sensitive recipient of God-sent visions with insights about the Bible and the natural world.
At a very early age, she experienced visions from God and wrote extensively about her visions – and also about botanicals and medicinals.
Sister Hildegard was cutting edge, essentially launching the holistic health craze in Europe, with her world renown book, “Holistic Healing” – an alternative medicine anthology.
She was the female Hippocrates of herbal health care and became best known for her healing powers, involving practical application of tinctures, herbs and plants.
Her philosophy became, “All things put on earth are for the use of humans.”
Hildegard was one tough sister with fabulous skin, yet for 800 years her ministry and the magnificent sweep of her abilities went largely unnoticed.
Today, we introduce you to her skin salvation secrets.
