If you have a humidifier in your home to keep the air from getting dry, you can add essential oils to the water. Another way to use them is to inhale them directly to treat any respiratory problems you may have. There are five essential oils that are awesome for treating respiratory problems.

  • Peppermint is a great essential oil to use as an expectorant and decongestant so it will really sooth a dry cough and sore throat. Simply add a few drops to a cup of hot water and sip. Rub a few drops on the back of the neck or on the bottom of the feet and any fever you have will simply vanish. Peppermint is also good for eliminating the headache that so often accompanies a cold.
  • Oregano is called a “natural antibiotic”.  It is very strong so only use 2-4 drops in a glass of water to eliminate sore throat and sinus infections.
  • Eucalyptus has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-viral, expectorant, antibiotic, decongestant and many more properties that make it an exceptional essential oil to use during the cold and flu season. Eucalyptus oil can be used to fight tuberculosis and it can have an antimicrobial effect on all kinds of bacteria and viruses. It is also known to cure bronchitis and asthma.
  • Juniper berry oil also has great anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties. For bronchitis, add a few drops of juniper to your vaporizer for a very soothing effect. For deep chest colds, use a combination of juniper oil mixed with eucalyptus in an inhalation therapy treatment for an even better result.

AA lipsIn yesterday’s blog, we talked about keeping your lips healthy looking instead of letting them become dry and cracked. The blog also gave the formula for your lip gloss base. I have a friend who makes this lip gloss every year as a gift for her friends, she just uses a different essential oil each time. I love getting those because that way, I don’t have to take time to make it myself. It doesn’t take that much time, but I am a very busy person! Below are some formulas for you to use to keep your lips in great kissable condition.

Benefits of Using Facial Moisturizers

Do you want to have that an exceptional look on your skin? If your answer is yes, you’ve got to use moisturizers on your body at least twice in a day. Different skins type use different moisturizers. Therefore it’s vital for you to identify what kind of skin you have to be able to purchase the right moisturizer. Facial moisturizers are different from body moisturizers and both oily and dry faces need the moisturizers.

Applying Facial moisturizers every morning helps to keep your skin dehydrated throughout the day. Make sure to use it after cleansing your face with lukewarm or warm water and mild soap as hot water is harmful to your skin. Pat your face with a clean towel and rub the moisturizer before it’s too dry for easy absorption.

Facial moisturizer prevents your face from aging and getting wrinkled even in future. So ensure you reapply in the evening as well to restore your skin’s moisture. The cream that has SPF is good to be used during the day as it protects your skin from ultraviolet rays. Remember to use water-based lotions if you have oily skin and oil-based creams for dry surfaces. Moisturizers always keep your face glowing and healthy.


There are many essential oils that you can use alone or in blends of two or three to fight wrinkles and the aging process. My favorite oils for this purpose are lavender, thyme, patchouli, clary-sage, fennel, chamomile, frankincense, myrrh, lemon, rosemary, and sweet orange. There are others that are also good for treating wrinkles so please comment on this post if you’d like the whole list of anti-aging essential oils.

You can use the above oils as a face oil (add a carrier oil), in a bath, and also as a body oil because you should be pampering all of your skin, not just your face. Skin regenerates at a different rate for all of us so allow at least thirty days before expecting to see an improvement. It is also important to treat your inside as well as the outside so don’t overload your system with toxins like alcohol, red meat, caffeine, and sugar because they clog your skin cells as well as your digestive system.


Help for Natural Hair

WIN_20150722_233650Mammals are the only animals that have hair and we humans really love ours. Hair is mostly composed of a protein called keratin. Wikipedia says that this keratin assembles itself into rope-like filaments and these filaments determine the strength of the hair shaft. While the hair shafts that we see on each others’ heads is “dead” because it has no biochemical activity, it comes from hair follicles located under the skin. These follicles  include the oil producing sebaceous gland which lubricates the hair and the erector pili muscles, which are responsible for causing hairs to stand-up when you have “goose bumps.”

Particular care should be taken for African-American hair in natural styles to keep the hair soft and supple. Many hair preparations contain petroleum based products which can cause poor blood circulation, clogged pores leading to dandruff and dry scalp and hair breakage. Why have a natural hairstyle and then groom it with an unnatural product? Instead, use an easy to apply oil for natural styles that contains tea tree oil, shea butter and other natural fruit oils that will soothe your hair and scalp, moisturize it and prevent itchiness.

Facial Masks Make Me Feel Alive Again After A Long Week!

Author: Natural-Beauty
August 31, 2018

Treating my body and my skin after a long week is a must. I work ten-hour days during the work week, squeezing them into Monday-Thursday. The benefit is having three-day weekends every week, but it does come with a price. During those crunch days, I feel tired, I look tired, and I am afraid that my skin is going to be completely lifeless.

The weekend is definitely a time to recharge and bring my skin back to life. I like to treat myself to a spa-like experience in my own bathroom. Facial masks are a great way to replenish and rehydrate my skin and they have been an awesome option for me for a long time. They give me not only benefits for my skin, but the whole experience is great for my soul.

I enjoy the experience of putting on the facial masks, then letting them do their work, and seeing the result afterward. I always feel like I have replenished my glow after a hard week. I get worried that I have permanently ruined my skin sometimes, as those hours of working late into the night really can take a toll and make me just feel numb altogether. Luckily, at the end of it, I can use a facial mask and see that everything is alright, my skin is still alive and well.
