Benefits of Ginger

Ginger is my Beauty Booster

Ginger on skincare? Sorry! Yes. You heard correctly 😉 Native from China and India, ginger is way more than just that an ordinary plants. 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.

What is rosewood oil?

Rosewood oil is indispensable oil, especially in perfumery. Linalool (naturally occurring terpene alcohol) is one of its constituents, which contributes in reducing stress.

Rosewood oil is extracted from the wood of Aniba rosaeodora. Oil is extracted from chipped wood, which goes through steam distillation process. Each aniba rosaeodora tree yields about 1% oil by weight of wood. I believe that rosewood oil is one of the most wonderful oil, which one must at home.

Rosewood benefits you in many ways, some are listed below

  • Pain reliever – Due to its analgesic property, it can help alleviate headache, toothache, muscle and joint pains.
  • Stress Reliever – Rosewood oil’s fragrance relaxes mind and body (due to presence of linalool).

Peppermint Essential Oil

I seriously am beginning to think that there is nothing peppermint essential oil cannot do! Medicine calls peppermint an “antispasmodic,” but shall we just say that it is super effective against pain? Not only does peppermint work against arthritis, it has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties. Plus, with the added presence of menthol, muscular aches and pains are naturally soothed.

 Lemongrass Essential Oil
The refreshing scent of lemongrass is often used for its mood boosting effects. But lemongrass has a hidden medicinal ability that reduces painful inflammation from arthritis, rheumatism, and autoimmune disorders.

When you have a torn MCL or ACL, the healing power of lemongrass will soothe the pain and relieve muscles that will be aching from favoring your injured knee. If you do not believe me, then check out the 2014 study published in The Libyan Journal of Medicine, which furthers research done by the Journal of Molecular and Cell Biology of Lipids by proving lemongrass essential oil inhibits inflammation.

Ginger Essential Oil
For those who are on an anti-inflammatory diet, you will agree with me that ginger is a miracle plant. Although there is a slight burning sensation when ginger essential oil is first applied to your sore knee, this is a sign of immediate action in reducing pain and inflammation. Multiple studies have been done that prove ginger reduces pain and stiffness by 40 percent and has analgesic (painkilling) properties.

Raspberry + Elderberry = Skin Energiser

Today on OiB I will teach you a very interesting recipe using raspberry and elderberry. You could call it a fruit juice or a jam. Just the thickness varies, that is all. Depending on the amounts of water and sugar, you add, you have either a fruit juice or jam.

I have tried it and it proved to be an instant skin energizer. For all you women out there, who feel that their skin is slightly on the dull side, will want to check this DIY recipe out.

Raspberry OrganicIsBeautiful
Raspberry | OrganicIsBeautiful

The elderberry bush is a popular nature berry that can be found in several regions in the United States of America and Canada. They usually grow in cool areas. You can find the berries growing on their tress during the months of August and October.

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.

Cinnamon in Skincare

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?

As you can see, it is not that difficult to prepare and make. Just make sure that you have kept all the ingredients ready beforehand so that you and start mixing it right away. I can’t tell you how yummy and tantalizing it was when I first had it.

It is always a special moment when you taste what you have so lovingly made. Trust me this drink is not like your other fruit drinks.

This one just takes it to another level.

Just one thing dear, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding your child, you will want to wait for few months.

Isn’t organic food good for skincare?
