Foot Bath





Fizzie Foot Bath



It's that time of year again to get our skin and feet ready for summer. To get those feet ready for summer sandals I love to soak my feet in a bath using peppermint/tea tree foot fizzies. I use the recipe below and use our Willow Bath Bomb Press™ and the Willow Cherry Bomb Mold. This mold makes the perfect size for a foot fizzie.

1/2 Cup Baking Soda
1/4 Cup Citric Acid
1 1/2 teaspoons Avocado Oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Sunflower Oil
1/2 teaspoon Peppermint Essential Oil
1/2 teaspoon Tea Tree Oil
Witch Hazel as needed

Mix oils and baking soda together very well. Mix in citric acid very well. Mixture should clump or compress together - add spritzs of Witch Hazel one at a time until mixture is ready to press into fizzies.

We would love to here about your great DIY summer skin care recipes!

Lip Balm



Lip Balm


Using natural lip balm is just as effective and a safer alternative to keeping your lips smooth and supple.

Dry lips need comfort too, but you want to opt for a natural lip balm that is not overly harsh on your skin. Too many products on the market contain parabens, synthetic fragrances and petroleum based ingredients that dry skin out, which only causes us to continue applying the product, repeating the tedious cycle.

The benefits associated with using a natural lip balm are extensive: they contain natural ingredients like beeswax and Shea butter that moisturize lips for a long lasting hydrated and soft feel.

Clary Sage Essential Oil



Clary Sage Essential Oil


Clary Sage Oil has been found to have many medicinal features. Clary Sage essential oil has sedative and aphrodisiac qualities as well as possessing great regenerative properties, which makes it popular for using on the skin. Recently I have noticed I bruise much easier when I bump against an object and some bruising can be very unsightly. As soon as I see a bruise I put a drop or two on the sight and rub it in. The bruising is minimal and the pain associated with the bruising will disappear very quickly. It also will help to stop bleeding if put on an open wound. Clary Sage essential oil has a strong, sweet nutty aroma, and will mix well with other oils such as Lavender, Jasmine Chamomile, Rosewood and Orange. Clary Sage can be added to your bath bombs, candles or simple used in a diffuser. Imagine relaxing after a stressful day in a warm bath with a few drops added to produce that calming positive outlook on life.  Read more at: http://www.naturalnews.com/

Cloves A Good Source of Vitamins





CLOVES
NaturalNews) Cloves are often associated with Christmas recipes such as mulled wine and Christmas cake and not widely used in western culture or cuisine outside of the Christmas period. However, cloves have health benefits which could be enjoyed the whole year round. 

Cloves have been used for over 2000 years for digestive disorders, to treat tooth pain, arthritis and also for the alleviation of cravings for alcoholics. It has been found that eugenol can also help prevent toxicity from environmental pollutants such as carbon tetrachloride and prevent cancers in the digestive tract.

Cloves are a good source of manganese, selenium, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin K, dietary fiber and vitamin C.

Manganese is an element that plays many essential roles in the body. It aids in the metabolism of proteins and helps activate enzymes needed for the body to use vitamin B1 (thiamin) and vitamin C, and is needed for normal functioning of the nervous system. Manganese is also involved in the formation of the thyroxine hormone in the thyroid gland, and in the production of sex hormones. Manganese also works as an antioxidant to help prevent cancer and heart disease.

Selenium helps skin to heal following injuries sustained from burns. Selenium's antioxidant properties regenerate vitamins E and C, and decrease aging of the skin. It improves the immune system's response against bacterial and viral infections, cancer cells, herpes virus, cold sores, and shingles. One of the major nutritional benefits of selenium is changing the levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol for a healthy heart.

Cloves taken as tea, in food or applied to the affected area as a paste can help with pain relief, indigestion, bloating and the symptoms associated with colds and flu such as congestion, headache, joint pain, muscle weakness and coughs.

Cloves are best bought whole rather than as a powder; the oils in the clove can be seen if pressed with a nail and the best quality can be found in health shops and spice markets. A good clove will contain a spherical top inside the crown of the bud and will float vertically in water whereas a stale one will float horizontally.

The tradition of using cloves in winter cooking may have started because the spice has a strong enough taste to cover up the taste of poorly preserved food. However, by consuming the spice in the winter it could also prevent the outbreaks of colds, flu and other viruses that also come as a tradition at wintertime.

Himalayan Crystal Salt




Himalayan Crystal Salt

Accept no other--Swanson Himalayan Crystal Salt is the only real Himalayan Salt in America endorsed by the founder of the European crystal salt movement, Dr. Barbara Hendel. As the ancient seas evaporated and the Himalayan Mountains rose from the earth, ribbons of pure crystal salt were stretched throughout the rock. Its structure, mineral composition and purity were thus preserved to this day. This crystal salt is finely ground and 100% pure and natural. It's not refined like table salt; it's more pure and wholesome than sea salt or rock salt. Dr. Hendel's Himalayan Crystal Salt is hand-mined to preserve its integrity and provide pure elemental energy from the earth. While many of Europe's leading chefs now demand Himalayan Crystal Salt in their kitchens, there's more to this natural wonder than culinary applications. Dr. Hendel recommends its use in baths, skin-care solutions, vaporizers and more--all detailed in her booklet Water & Salt, available exclusively through Swanson Health Products.
