Clean your kidneys

May 6, 2018
Let’s start the “Health & Fitness” section with cleaning your kidneys… People ask me all the time how do you look so young.  Well, I’m going to share my secrets. Even when I was going through my mid-life crisis, I still held everything intact, skin, style, and health. Everything else fell apart but I kept those intact.

Our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted toxins entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this?
It is very easy, first take a bunch of parsley or Cilantro (Coriander Leaves) and wash it clean, then cut it into small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it in the refrigerator to cool.
Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before.
Parsley (Cilantro) is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

Living a natural lifestyle with “Lavender”

February 3, 2018

It’s tough living a life as a creative person. I’m blessed with this stressed. However, I would love my gifts even more if I could sleep properly.

Here are ten ways you can live a natural lifestyle with lavender. I want to point out that number three is my favorite.

Being a creative entrepreneur, it’s really hard to calm your mind when it’s time to sleep. You have meetings in the morning. There’s a last minute workshop you have to teach due to a cancellation. And you’re taking care of an elderly parent. So what’s one to do when you need to get a couple of hours of sleep?

This tip (number three) will help you calm your thoughts that will allow you to drift off into la-la land. I want you to grab a spray bottle, add a couple of drops of lavender oil to distilled water and mist your pillow before sleepy time.

Lavender oil like coconut oil can be listed as a “jack of all trades” oil. Of course, it smells divine but it is also instrumental in remaining ageless and promoting a healthy and natural lifestyle. So instead of just giving you one useful way to use lavender, here are nine more.

  1. Eliminate nausea – Breathe in the lavender oil, straight from the bottle and exhale. Inhale and then exhale about 3 times more if you desire. Then dab the oil on your tummy, temples, and wrists, this too will aid in eliminating nausea.
  2. I say this all time, people will take care of their face and neck but forget their lips. Having dry, chapped, and cracked lips are very unappealing and it shows your age just like your hands. This can affect all ages. To soften those lips up by mixing a tablespoon of lavender oil with a 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, rub on your lips to exfoliate and get rid of the dead skin for a smooth, sexier and healthier look. Rinse with warm, then apply a small amount lavender oil to your lips as a gloss.  You can check out my blog post on healthy and sexy lips. 
  3. Do your thoughts race at night? Do you toss and turn trying to doze off into la la land? Are you into natural remedies instead of the over-the-counter sleep aids? Well, lavender oil is your answer. Grab a spray bottle, apply a couple of drop to 8 ounces of distilled water and mist your pillow. This faint scent will settle those thoughts and send you off into a peaceful sleep.
  4. While we’re on the subject of settling those thoughts, sometimes our thoughts overtake us and we find ourselves not being able to concentrate. Lavender oil to the rescue. Again inhale the lavender oil but mix it with a little peppermint or my fav gardenia oil. Stated in #3, the lavender oil will help you calm your mind and will help you focus on a single thought by quieting all the other noise that’s vying for your attention.
  5. Soothe your sunburn by applying a couple of drops of lavender oil to the affected area. The oil will help reduce redness and soothe the pain.
  6. Clean those cuts and sanitize those scars, oils have antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-microbial functions. Soak a cotton ball with lavender oil and apply it on the cut or scar, it will act as a natural disinfectant.
  7. It’s Summertime and our little furry friends are bothered and bitten by pesky bugs. Massage a couple of drops of lavender oil on your pet’s fur to calm their itchy skin and to keep at bay other pesky bugs especially the fleas.
  8. Those pesky bugs don’t discriminate they come after us humans as well. Once bitten, rub a couple of drops of the oil onto the itchy bug bit for a natural soothing relief.
  9. Oily face? Want to clear up that complexion? First, let me say chemically manufactured facial cleansers strip skin from its natural oils. I recommend adding a couple of drops of lavender

This is especially good during the summer months.

  10. Saving the best for last, reducing wrinkles. The moisturizing agents in lavender oil help keep the skin firm and supple.  Grab that spray bottle of lavender oil and distilled water and mist your face or the desired area.

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the top ten uses for lavender oil. Please use at your own discretion and check with your physician to make sure you’re not allergic to this and other oils.

Keep the lips looking sexy & healthy!

Lips of a 51-year-old lady – KAH

Let’s find how to get those sexy, smooth lips. I do not wear make-up which is why I have a love/hate relationship with my profile picture on (Twitter & Facebook). It’s a nice picture but I’m wearing make-up. My nail stylist wanted to experiment with a new product. A friendly argument ensued and I ended up letting her throw some make-up on my face not once, but she got me a couple of times. I don’t want you to think I’m a hypocrite.

I wear lip gloss and eyelashes if I’m going out. A sexy lip and eye will take you far!

Lips

THIN LIPS Make thin lips look fuller and accentuate their shape by outlining just outside their natural edge with a lip liner. Brush on a lip color inside the line you have drawn. Avoid using very matte colors as these can make lips look even thinner; slightly glossy colors will make lips look fuller.

Uneven Lips Balance an uneven top lip by outlining just outside the thinner half of the lip and along the natural edge of the fuller half using a lip liner. Check that the line is even, then outline the lower lip. Brush on a lip color inside the line. II lips still look uneven, add more color to the thinner half of the lip. 

SHAPELESS LIPS Give lips more definition by outlining the top lip with a lip liner to emphasize the “m” in the middle and so create more of a cupid’s bow. Outline just outside the natural edge of the lower lip to make it look fuller. Brush on a strong lip color to help give the lips, even more, definition. 

FULL LIPS Make full lips appear thinner by lightly covering them with a foundation to help blur the edges. Using a lip liner, outline lips just inside their natural edge, then brush on a lip color, being careful not go outside the line. Avoid pearly or glossy colors as these will make the lips look even fuller. 

UNEVEN COLOR Balance different-colored lips by covering both with a little foundation. Outline lips with a lip liner, then brush a darker shade of your chosen lip color onto until it looks lighter, on a lighter shade onto the one that looks darker. Purse the lips gently together to even out the color more.

Having smooth, healthy-looking lips is just as important as keeping your face, neck, and hands youthful. Here’s one of my all natural secrets I use to sustain my youthful looking lips. I hate cracked dry looking lips. Since is so easy to keep them looking fresh and smooth.

Not only am I into an all natural look, I prefer when I can use an all natural product. So I’ve created a brown sugar lip scrub. 

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

  1. 2 tsp Brown Sugar (I use the dark brown sugar)
  2. 1/2 tsp of honey or agave nectar (I alternate between the 2 each time I make a new container)
  3. 1 tsp of olive oil
  4. 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  5. Mixing bowl
  6. small glass container
  1. Grab the mixing bowl and add the honey or agave nectar and olive oil mix together.
  2. Now slowly add the brown sugar. The brown sugar is fantastic. It will gently exfoliate the dead skin and sooth those chapped lips.
  3. And last add the lovely smelling vanilla extract and mix together until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Then spoon into a glass container.
  5. Now I store most of my skin products in a small fridge.

For the fun part…

  • Scrub on lips in a circular motion for about 3 minutes (You can use your finger or a white wash cloth)
  • Then let set for about a minute
  • Wipe off with warm water
  • Then apply a couple of drops of Vitamin  E … Wait a couple of minutes then apply Vaseline
  • In the winter, I do this almost every evening because I live in the North East.  During the summer months, every other night.
