• DEODORANTS

    IT IS POSSIBLE TO REGULATE THE EXCESS OF TRANSPIRATION with a natural deodorant based on alum powder.

    We have designed this deodorant recipe specially to treat the hyperhidrosis problems of some people because we have known that the alum stone, together with some essential oils that we will detail below, is a treatment for body odour problems (which have not been able to solve with commercial antiperspirants) and in situations of hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. The knowledge of the medicinal properties of the natural stone of alum dates back to ancient times: The great ancient civilizations such as the Chinese, Egyptian, Roman, Indian, Greek and Arab, recognized the benefits of the stone of alum and its use for different purposes it was common and popular. The Romans,…

    THE RANCIDITY OR OXIDATION OF VEGETABLE OILS

    Why is it important to know the degree of oxidation of an oil or vegetable butter? Oils are basically composed of diglycerides and triglycerides of fatty acids. Each oil has different properties depending on its composition and we can combine them to get the best out of each of them. Thus, for example, castor oil, which alone has a low absorption capacity, combined with other more absorbent oils brings interesting fatty acids to our skin and a great capacity for hydration. Likewise, if we want to make natural soaps, it is important to bear in mind that some oils, although they provide a good level of foam and have a…

    DIETS AND HEALTH

    We all want to be thin to look better, no doubt, but also for health reasons. How many people we haven’t heard of who need to lose weight in order to walk better or avoid the pains of their knees. And of how many others who after losing weight manage to regulate their metabolism problems and even control their sugar and cholesterol levels. As Dr. Josep Mercola, another of the drivers of paleo* diets (high-fat, low-carb diets), states in his books (such as “Heal effortlessly”.  Ed. Grijalbo); losing weight is one of the fundamental pillars to achieve our goal of staying healthy and disease-free. *Below, we will describe this type…

    HOW TO MAKE INFUSED OIL

    Many times we have in the garden, or even in pots, plants that we do not know that if we dry them they can be very useful. In this article we want to explain to you how we can prepare infused oil with the dried flowers of our garden to obtain their properties and be able to use them in creams and ointments. A MACERATED OIL is nothing more than oil infused with the essence and therapeutic properties of a plant that we let macerate in the oil. Some examples of macerated oils and their properties: Arnica (flowers): Contusions, bumps, bruises, oedema, heavy legs. Arnica, St. John’s wort and Calendula…

    SUPER HYDRATING HAND CREAM with castor oil

    We often think about taking care of our face with moisturizers for the day, for the night, anti-wrinkle specials for the eye area, or even with special serums (serums) for the face. But do we really take good care of our hands? Many times, we may realize too late that they are irritated or dry. This irritation occurs when we cannot hydrate our hands optimally. If we are not careful enough, we can increase our sensitivity to aggressions, which can often be painful and cause skin cracks or chilblains*. *Chilblains are alterations that occur on the skin due to sudden changes in temperature. This exposure causes blood vessels in the…

    NATURAL REMEDIES AGAINST SKIN CHILBLAINS AND ERYTHEMA

    Chilblains are skin lesions due to the skin being exposed to a sudden change in temperature. This exposure causes blood vessels in the area to become constricting (vasoconstriction), causing blood supply to decrease in this particular region of the body. Painful inflammation of these small blood vessels occurs in response to this sudden contrast in temperature. Chilblains or erythema can cause itching, red spots, swelling and blisters on the hands and feet. In addition to pain, there are several other symptoms that are characteristic to chilblains. We are referencing these symptoms as follows: -The affected area usually takes a red and bluish color. -There is inflammation.                                                                                                 -There is itching of…

    HONEY INTIMATE HYGIENE GEL

    “Vaginal flora is called the set of bacteria that live naturally in the female intimate area. The presence of these (mostly Lactobacillus bacteria) has a protective function, as they produce lactic acid and other substances, which maintain acidic vaginal pH by inhibiting the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms.” “Each woman is home to several types of lactobacillus, which evolve throughout her cycle and life based on hormonal variations, environment, intimate hygiene, sex life, etc. In the menopause period, the pH is naturally 7 while in a normal state the pH of the vagina varies between 4 and 5”.
