I have been experimenting with some awesome essential oils lately and they have become an important part of my daily routine. They are a great way for me to stay stress-free and calm and to enjoy some awesome healing for my mind, body, and soul. I love using essential oils for my daily relaxation and health.

We live in a busy world and I need to have some time to just relax and enjoy the moment in my day-to-day life. It is hard for me to not feel like I am always running from one place to another. However, with these great essential oils, I can stay in a great mood and I can be focused and feel great in my busy life. I love getting new essential oils.

Finding some great carrier oils for my essential oils helps me to have the best experience for massage and for some aromatherapy as well. I love using carrier oils to dilute my essential oils and help them to carry their properties into my skin. The oils are perfect for helping me to feel and to look my best on a daily basis.

Blocked sebum become blackheads (medically known as a comedo or comedones) when the surface cells develop sulfides which, in turn, contact  oxygen causing the cells to turn black. Blackheads are unsightly and can easily become infected. When you remove them and the opening just fills up again with more sebum; this condition is related to seborrhea, overproduction of the sebaceous glands. Even people with dry skin can develop blackheads, especially on the nose or chin but blackheads can develop practically anywhere on the body, as well as on the face. Wherever they develop, the treatment for blackheads is the same, they need to be removed.

To remove blackheads, get a bowl of steaming hot water with 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar added, put 1 drop of lavender essential oil on the water and cover your head with a towel, being sure to close off the sides too and steam your face for 10 minutes. Rinse the face with 1 teaspoon of cider vinegar mixed in a bowl of hot (but not boiling) water. If the blackheads are loose, squeeze gently taking care not to damage the skin. Then splash the face with a mixture of 2 ounces of mineral water, 2 teaspoons cider vinegar – I like Bragg‘s Natural Apple Cider brand, 1 teaspoon witch hazel, 2 drops each of bergamot and cypress essential oils.

After patting the skin dry, massage the following oils into the skin. This will help to prevent blackheads from coming back and also loosen the ones that are already there:

  • Lemongrass – 8 drops
  • Lavender – 5 drops
  • Clary-sage – 2 drops
  • Thyme – 5 drops
  • Jojoba oil – 5 drops

Use this massage mixture morning and night. When you wash your face, take care to use a pure natural soap. You can use eye makeup if you like but avoid face makeup and powder.

This is the time of year that everyone gets a flu shot and hopes they can skip getting the flu. I haven’t had a flu shot in years and I haven’t had the flu since the last time I took the flu shot either. The flu is a viral attack on your body that involves fever, tiredness, coughs, colds, muscle aches and exhaustion. How can one flu shot attempt to prevent so many different viruses that could be the cause of your flu? The best treatment for flu needs to be quick and aimed at fighting the virus as well as raising your immunity levels.

If you start to feel achy, shivery and cold, take a warm bath and add 5 drops of tea tree oil, 2 drops of lavender , and 2 drops of thyme. Next massage your whole body with 2 drops of tea tree and 3 drops of eucalyptus diluted in 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil. Then you should get in bed and rest.

You can spray your bedroom with thyme and lavender or put those oils in a diffuser. Drink plenty of liquids. You can make a special drink for your flu by combining 1 drop of clove and 2 drops of lavender. Use 1 drop of this blend in a teaspoon of honey stirred into a cup of warm water and sip slowly. You will feel better than if you took a flu shot and your arm won’t hurt either!

Youth is everything these days and it seems like everyone is doing everything that they can to stay as young-looking as possible, both men and women. It seems like people almost aren’t respected anymore unless they have a certain youthful appearance. I have definitely been feeling the pressure to stay young-looking and luckily I have gotten some great products for it.

Finding good skin care products has helped me to look my best every day. It seems like the years go by so fast and they go by faster the older you get. I can’t believe I have already been out of college for as long as I have and I find it important to take better care of my skin now.

Even though I am still a young adult, I find it important to have great skin care now so that I can build a healthy foundation for the years ahead. With some great anti-aging skin care, I have been getting some great results.  My new skincare regimen has given me some great results and it will surely be a staple in the future. I love being confident for each day with my skin care.

Finding some great moisturizers is very important to me, as I need to have the right ones to ensure that my skin stays healthy and soft. I have naturally really dry skin and I need to have the right lotion to keep my skin smooth and soft. If I don’t have the right lotion, my skin gets so dry that it is embarrassing. Finding some great lotion online is always nice.

I have been getting some nice anti-aging lotions online and they are great for doing some double-duty for my skin. The lotions are nice for giving my skin the health that it needs, especially through the cold winter months. My skin used to always take a turn for the worst during the fall and the winter. It would get so dry that it would even crack and bleed.

My anti-aging moisturizers have been helping me to have the soft and healthy skin that I want to have. They have been ideal for my hands and my face and for my whole body. I no longer have to deal with dry and itchy skin with the lotions. They are a great way for me to keep my skin perfectly smooth so I am always ready for a selfie.

clear skin1The first thing to do when you are ready to moisturize your face is to cleanse it with a gentle natural soap. Lather the soap in your hands with warm water and use gentle circular motions. Don’t forget to lather your neck too because it should be treated just as lavishly as your face.  You can rinse your face with warm water or use a face towel soaked in very warm water and wrung dry to steam your face. Just lay the warm towel on your face for about 30 seconds and then pat dry.

Second, wipe your face with a natural astringent like witch hazel or vinegar. I use cotton rounds because they are lint free, but you can use a cotton ball instead. I don’t use very much astringent so I don’t dry my face after applying it. If your face is wet after using the astringent, you are using too much and you should blot it dry and not use so much next time.

The third and last thing in this sequence is to apply a natural moisturizing cream like 30 Second Facelift. Rub about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of the cream on your palms and fingertips. Wipe it on your face in circular motions starting on your cheeks and moving up to your forehead don’t forget your neck, starting at the base and moving up to the chin. When you have rubbed it in well, you can blot your face with a tissue. The only makeup I wear is a little  bit of lipstick. If you like, you can add eye makeup but you won’t need liquid makeup or powder since it just clogs your pores.

weight loss

Stretch marks plague many women during pregnancy but they are also common in both men and women when there is a sudden weight gain or loss. Boys and girls may get them during puberty when their bodies undergo the changes that occur at that time. Shea butter is an excellent natural product to use to get rid of stretch marks and also to prevent them.

Shea butter is 100% pure and natural and it contains vitamin A and vitamin E which both have exceptional healing properties for the skin. The vitamin A in shea butter is important for improving skin conditions including stretch marks, blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis as well as properties that treat skin allergies, insect bites, sunburns, frostbites, and many other common skin conditions. The vitamin E in this rich creamy extract may serve as an anti-free radical agent that aids in preventing the harmful effects of the sun and environmental exposure on the skin. To use this wonderful product, simply massage it on the needed areas.
