Weekend fun… Packing Soap :-)

Weekends are usually the time when I get to work on Soap batches. Work like researching some new essential oil combination or trying a new recipe, designing packaging etc all get my attention during the weekends. Spent the morning designing and packing the new batch of unscented coffee soap. It has turned out quite good I think, how do you like it?

Unscented soaps are great for you if you find the factory made soaps chemical scents overpowering.

Coffee makes the soap so plush and mild on the skin.

Elixir for the skin

Coconut oil is really good for the skin. There are so many ways in which one can use coconut oil besides the good old champi of the head.

  1. Use it as a Moisturizer during the dry winter months.
  2. Massage with coconut oil is great not only for relaxing but also gives great benefits to the skin.
  3. Soften your heels or elbow skin with a gentle rub of coconut oil just before retiring to bed and see its benefits in just a few days.
  4. Chapped lips, don’t worry, warm 1-2 drops of coconut oil on your palm and gently dab your lips. No need to reach for that petroleum based jelly which blocks the pores and does more harm than good.
  5. The champi or head massage with warm coconut oil will take you to heaven. Make your worries fly away with a head massage from a loved one.
  6. You can remove those layers of makeup by dabbing coconut oil with a cotton swab and rinsing with lukewarm water.
  7. Coconut oil makes your skin soft and supple. Use it under your eyes to help repair your skin naturally.

With so many benefits associated with coconut oil, no wonder many people consider it to be an elixir for your skin.

Make it part of your beauty regime, Stay natural, Stay beautiful.

Guess what!!!

Our Skin in not neutral, unlike what the big soap companies would have us believe. It is actually a bit acidic. Essential requirement to fight all the germs and micro organisms floating around. Ph-neutral soaps have chemicals added to make it so, and this disturbs the acidic balance of our skin. Use natural soaps and let the skin show its magic.

Bad Hair Days?

Hi Ladies,

Bad hair days can ruin the best of moments. But why do they occur?

The hair shaft or the outer covering of the hair is made up of lots of tightly packed overlapping scales, much like the way shown in the shampoo ads. Our scalp produces oil called sebum which coats the hair and helps keep these scales aligned as well as protect our hair.

When this oil balance is disturbed, the scales on the hair open and the hair swell, causing frizzy, brittle hair.

This imbalance can occur due to use of shampoos or caused by improper diet or stress. This is also a cause of hair breakage and hair loss.

Apple Cider Vinegar helps restore the natural acidity of the hair in the most natural way.

Apple cider vinegar is also anti-inflammatory, which can counteract the skin inflammation that typically occurs with dandruff and a dry, flaky scalp.

Apples are loaded with potassium, calcium and pectin, and fermentation adds even more beneficial enzymes. Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is packed with all of these nutrients, so you can prefer it over filtered apple cider vinegar.

The Rinse:badhair2

1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in about 1 cup of water.

After shampoo, rinse your hair with this mix.

Let it sit for 1-2 minutes,

Rinse with water.

Don’t worry, as your hair dry, the vinegar odor goes away too, leaving you with shiny, clean hair.

Tip:

Just leave a plastic mug/cup with the bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar in the washroom. Wash your hair first, followed by the Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse. Let it sit in the hair for the rest of the bath. Rinse your hair as part of the shower itself.

Let me know what natural things you use to prevent bad hair days.
