The white flowers are something to see, really they are amazing. The tiny black fruit provides abundance of juice for such a small looking fruit. Don’t directly eat the fruits because they are extremely powerful, which is why little cooking is required before you pop them in your mouth.

These berries are ideal for making sauces, wines, and jams. And jams are my personal favorite. The berries are very good for skin and come with several other health properties like they cure a bad stomach and even come with anti cancer properties.

Ingredients

  • A cup of raspberries
  • A cup of elderberries

Procedure

Step1

You will need to wash the elderberries and raspberries. This helps in getting rid of the stalks which are present on them. Instead of using your fingers, you can make use of a fork. Now, you will want to place the berries in a hot pan.

Step2

As you are cooking the berries, start to mash them. Once you are done mashing, you can pour them into the muslin. Leave the items overnight in the refrigerator. Next day morning all you need to do is measure the juice in the bowl and boil in a cleaned pan. You will then want to pour into warm jars.

Step3

When preparing a sauce or syrup, you need to dissolve the honey in warm water and then put it inside the refrigerator. You are done. Wasn’t it simple?

Everything About Almonds

Almonds are my favourite snack! | www.OrganicIsBeautiful.com

tip that has become a norm.

Botanically speaking, almond belongs to the family of the peach, plum and the cherry. This
species of the tree is a native to Middle East, North Africa and the Indian subcontinent.
However, according to some sources the origin of almond is accredited to Central Asia and
China. In the Mediterranean region specifically in some parts of Levant, the almonds are
considered to be the first to be in the region. You can find their traces in history all the way to
the Bible.

Skin Types and Almonds
It is one of the most amazing things about almond that it is good for every type of skin.

 Almonds can have a blooming effect on a normal skin.

 Oily skin attracts too much dirt and it can be addressed by applying an almond face
pack.

 For sensitive skin, almonds are the best choice because they do not contain any acidic
nutrient. Not only this but also almonds contain antioxidants due to which they can
thwart the unwelcomed microbes.

 Applying almond oil on an oily skin gives the best results.

Main Benefits of Almonds
Almonds are considered as the memory booster and this is not without reason. Here are some
remarkable benefits of almonds.

Almonds can be termed as the nutrient factory as they contain fiber, protein, fat,
vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, vitamin B2, carbs, and phytic
acid all in one seed. All these nutrients are very important for the nourishment of
human body.

 Prevent Ageing and Disease
Almonds are a great source of antioxidants which help protect against oxidative stress,
which are a danger to molecules and can be a reason for ageing and diseases like
cancer. Furthermore, they alleviate oxidative stress.

 Help Prevent Heart Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease
Almonds are filled with Vitamin E which, according to a study, when taken aplenty can
help prevent heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

 Control Blood Sugar
Almonds are a perfect combination for diabetics as they contain lesser carbs, more
healthy fats, fibers and protein. Furthermore, they contain a high amount of magnesium
which is involved in blood sugar control according to a recent study.

 Beneficial for Blood Pressure
Magnesium in this seed not only controls the blood sugar but also the blood pressure
levels. According to a number of studies mitigating magnesium deficiency helps reduce
the blood pressure.

 Almond is frequently used in cosmetics.
 Its oil has also been used for massages.
 Oil extracted from almonds is good for treating stretch marks and scars.
 Being anti-inflammatory, it is also used for digestion purposes.

Precautions

reaction after consuming almonds, consult a doctor immediately.

outer skin. Add an essential oil, mix it and then rub it on your face in circles. Then wash your

It has a number of properties to qualify as a beauty booster as well. And the best part? The ingredient is one that is almost at all times sitting at the bottom of your vegetable basket. So no need to run around digging up plants for this one! Here are 5 reasons why you skin should be getting more of ginger.

Benefits of Ginger
Lets talk about the benefits of Ginger – OrganicIsBeautiful
  • Burn Support

It is surprising to know that the natural situation of the skin is regained if ginger is applied directly to the place where the burn has taken place. It also helps to reduce the pain for the burn. Besides rubbing a fresh ginger slice, one can also apply fresh ginger juice for the same effect. If it is applied twice or thrice a day, it can help to remove different scars too.

This takes effect in 6 to 12 weeks while the ginger slice should be fresh every time you apply it.

You Will Never Thought That Knowing Ginger Skincare Could Be So Beneficial!
  • Anti-Aging

Ginger has more than 40 antioxidants in it.

That’s an impressive number to keep in mind!

This is why it greatly helps in anti-aging. The toxins are flushed out due to which the body circulation of the blood is improved. This in turn helps to have improvement in the skin appearance because it provides more nutrients to the skin.

They also prevent damage from different free radicals which is why the youth of the skin is not lost. The elasticity and firmness is maintained and aging is slowed down.

  • Acne and Spots

Acne and spots or different related blemishes are more like a curse to many people. Ginger can work wonders here. Ginger is a very powerful antiseptic and cleansing agent. It helps to keep the skin clear as well as free of any residues. As a result, the skin is invigorated and the blemishes are also lessened.

Acne-causing bacteria is also killed by ginger which is why it is also known as the best natural acne-fighting weapon of all. This way the rate of acne formation is also minimized.

  • White Scars

Hyper-pigmentation can also be solved with the help of ginger. The white spots are now no more of a problem at all. The skin becomes lighter or white at some places in comparison to other patches of the skin. The use of ginger reduces the appearance of this pigmentation.

If you apply a fresh slice of ginger to your skin and leave it on for some time, then the results can sometimes be seen in just 2 weeks.

If you also have any other ginger benefits make sure you tell me in the comments below too.
