None of us want our hair to fall out for any reason. It might happen though for any number of reasons, like the use of inappropriate hair care products or poor health. Many hair care products on store shelves have chemical ingredients that simply are too harsh for our hair and scalp.

I suggest using a natural shampoo that contains no harsh chemicals and adding essential oils that have properties that are good for your hair. Fragrance World of Topeka has a proprietary blend they will make for you in an aroma free shampoo. I use it all the time and it makes my hair grow and keeps it looking thick and glossy.

Common Cold Relief

February 5, 2019

This is the time of year when colds and the flu are prevalent. Too often, people use antibiotics to treat colds and flu but I believe antibiotics may do more harm than good. Why use a synthetic medicine when you can use pure organic essential oils that are natural and have antibacterial and antiviral properties to treat your illness?

To treat a common cold you can use the following oils in a hot bath. Just relax in the tub and inhale deeply.

2 drops – Thyme
2 drops – Tea tree
1 drop – Eucalyptus
3 drops – Lemon

If you would rather use the steam inhalation method, you can use one drop of each of thyme, tea tree, lavender, and clove in a bowl of steaming hot water. Put a towel over your head over the steaming blend and breath deeply for 5 to 10 minutes, taking a break whenever needed.

If you are away from home and can’t perform the steam inhalation method, you can take with you a tissue to which you have added one drop each of peppermint, eucalyptus, and clove. Inhale this aroma deeply whenever possible.

Before going to bed, massage the chest, neck and sinus area with the following essential oils diluted in 1 teaspoon of shea oil or another cosmetic grade vegetable oil of your choice:

1 drop – Lemon
2 drops – Eucalyptus
3 drops – Rosemary

Keep your risk of catching the common cold at a minimum by washing your hands frequently.


Clay Beauty Masks

Facial masks have beneficial effects for many skin types because they can nourish, rejuvenate, and stimulate; refine, cleanse, and peel off the outer skin layer; soothe and calm inflammation; clear acne, loosen blackheads; and act as an anti-wrinkle treatment and natural face-lift. For natural skin care, you can use practically any fruit or vegetable in your refrigerator and many other foodstuffs. You can purchase a flower water to blend your dry ingredients but I prefer to use plain spring water as the moisturizer with an essential oil like lavender, geranium, neroli or bergamot  added for the properties they bring to the mixture.

Clay masks are wonderful because the clay has absorbed the sun and the plants and minerals of earth over thousands of years giving it rejuvenating and anti-aging benefits for our skin. Clays come in an assortment of colors from all over the world and can be found in health food stores and pharmacies. When we combine the clay with essential oils they complement each other with a synergistic effect providing natural skin care that is highly beneficial. White kaolin clay is best used on normal to oily skin because it has an astringent effect. It removes impurities from the skin as it cleanses and it improves lymphatic flow, increasing blood circulation to the area. Fuller’s earth is a stimulating clay that is a soft brown in color. It is a cleansing clay plus it removes dead skin cells. It is best used on oily to normal skin.

Green clay is the best of the clays and it can be used on all skin types. It is good for treating acne and other skin disturbances as well as providing an anti-aging effect for mature skin. Green clay balances combination skin, normalizes oily skin and revitalizes dry skin. It is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium and energizes connective tissue. It stimulates very gently and it is effective in increasing the lymph flow and circulation allowing oxygen to speed the elimination of waste products.

Of course, you can purchase a face mask that you squeeze from a tube providing an instant face mask but these products contain all kinds of unnecessary ingredients that may even be harmful to your skin. When I look at the expiration date on a product and it is a year or two away, I wonder how that product can be good for my skin and I want a natural alternative instead. That’s why I make my own facial masks and cleansers. A homemade mask takes only a few minutes to assemble and once you put your tailor made product in a jar you have your own instant face pack ready to use at any time and tailor-made for your own skin type.

Skin Moisturizer Myths You Must Debunk in 2019

December 31, 2018

Have you heard of antiquated misinformation about skin care and moisturizers that you would want to find facts about? Well, there is a wide number of misleading myths that have been peddled through every platform of communication-and probably you must have become worried. Worry less because we are here to deconstruct some of these myths.

One of these myths and most common of all is that if you got oily skin, then you must not apply a skin moisturizer. The truth is that every skin, whether hydrated or dehydrated, must be moisturized. The texture of your skin is not a major factor to consider. The most fundamental thing is to have your skin hydrated either through cream or serum.

Another pervasive myth in the world of beauty is that you only need one lotion for both your face and body. Well, this is misleading because the skin on your face is by far softer and more delicate than the rest of the body. Therefore, facial skin needs a different moisturizer explicitly designed for the face. Whether your skin is acne-infested or not, it must always be moisturized. However, be careful on the kind of skin moisturizer you choose for different parts of your body.

Dirt, grime, pollution, and on top of that, make up – your face and skin go so much every day. Protect it and keep it fresh, moisturized, and healthy by adding skin cleansing to your daily beauty routine.

An ideal skin cleansing regimen is important in keeping your skin and face’s youthful glow. Keep a daily routine that starts with a good cleansing to wash away the impurities on your face, otherwise, you run the risk of breakouts and oily skin caused by blocked pores and dead skin cells build up. If you don’t cleanse regularly, your pores will be congested, and your complexion will result in uneven patches and poor complexion. Skin cleansing is also a great way to prepare your skin for other skincare products, clearing the way for your serums and moisturizers to do their job. It only takes a few minutes every day to cleanse your face and yet it can do considerable improvement to maintain a soft, clear, and healthy complexion.

There are many skin cleansing products to choose from. Of course, when you do get on the routine, you need the right one that works for you. Natural soaps and cleansers are highly recommended but if you want to be extra sure your product matches your skin type, better consult your dermatologist.
