Have you ever used chia seeds? If not, you are missing a whole host of benefits! Honestly, if you try chia seeds one day, you will want to consume them for the rest of your life! They are just that brilliant!

Nutrients

Firstly, chia seeds are packed to the brim with nutrients while at the same time being low in calories. This means that they are brilliant for a nice and healthy diet. In a single 28 gram serving of chia seeds, you will get all of this:

  • Fiber (11 grams)
  • Fat (9 grams). However, the majority of this fat is Omega-3 which is very beneficial to your health.
  • Protein: 4 Grams
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Zinc

and …a whole lot more!
Basically, right off of the bat, they are going to be pretty healthy for you. These are regarded as one of the best superfoods on the market right now.

Antioxidants

One of the main reasons as to why people veer towards chia seeds is the fact that they are packed to the brim with antioxidants. These are vital compounds. You see, antioxidants help to fight off free radicals in the body. By fighting off free radicals, you will be able to improve the look of your skin (you will basically be kissing goodbye to wrinkles and the like), while at the same time also bolstering your protection against diseases.

Fiber

There are carbohydrates in chia seeds. Most people turn their nose up at carbs (you shouldn’t, they really are beneficial to your health). However, you will be pleased to know that almost all the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber. Your body is not going to absorb this. It is just pushed right out of the body. Fiber is a good carbohydrate as it does not raise your blood sugar.

Protein

Proteins are regarded as the building blocks of the human body. You need protein in your diet. Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein. In fact, they have more protein than most other plant-based products out there. A high protein diet will actually help you to lose weight quickly. This is because it has the ability to reduce your appetite. If you are a vegetarian or a vegan, then chia seeds are going to be especially good for you due to the high protein content in them.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Most people out there do not get enough Omega-3 in their diet. You will be pleased to know that chia seeds are one of the best natural sources of Omega-3. A boost in Omega-3 in your system will reduce stress levels, reduce your blood pressure, and even lower the risk of heart disease.

Honestly, if there is one natural product on the market that you try, do make it chia seeds. There is just so much goodness packed into them, you really can’t ignore them!

3 Quick Hair Spa Treatments

g7mndpp3tys8wnrnjkq1_dscf0623-copia

Today on OiB, I will discuss the three most responsive and quick treatments for hair. I have often received queries from my fans who say that they often don’t have much time to visit salons and spas or that they have to go to many different places and can’t afford to give time for hair. This is why I decided to share the approach I apply, whenever I am in such a situation.

The best way to do this is save time by not going to the salon or spa at all. I have often seen that most of my time is spent looking for my stylist, calling her up, setting an appointment, and then traveling to and from the salon as well. This means that if you spend about 40 minutes on your hair then more than 40 minutes is spent in other ways.

This is why I decided to learn and develop some new skills for quick hair treatments so that I do not need to go to the spa at all. I have developed a few of these quick treatments, but the top 3 of them are given as follows

pink-hair-selfie-bun-copia

1. Scalp Massage

There might be many essentials for different hair treatments but this treatment is truly the best of all. This is because it is super easy and works wonders at home too. The hair treatment is started at home while coconut oil or olive oil is also put into it. The next step only requires true head massaging with gentle stroke for just a little amount of time. As a result, the blood circulation is increased and a boost is received by the hair as well.

2. Hair Steaming

This is one of the most important processes that can be used for improving one’s hair. Hair steaming can be obtained after a towel is dipped in warm water and all the extra water is squeezed from it. You can also wrap this towel around your hair so that the oil can reach deep down under into your scalp. This can be done for 5 to 6 minutes so that the maximum effect is reached upon. It leaves hair volumised in a sense too.

3. Hair Washing and Conditioner Treatment

This is the last step of taking quick hair treatments at home. You can shampoo your hair, condition it and wash it thoroughly. One can also apply a paste of beetroot and hibiscus powder on it. Next, the hair mask is also the best way to take care of all nourishment needs. It provides softening and hair texture regulation as well. it provides shine to your hair effectively as well.

If you have any questions regarding any of these 3 quick hair treatments, then you do not need to hesitate at all if you leave your question here in the comments. We shall also be glad to know of any new quick hair treatments of your own that suit you too. Make sure you get your hands working on the comments section for sure!

Endometriosis and Essential Oil – Clary Sage

Clary Sage oil has been used for years in some cultures to treat a
variety of diseases and today at OiB we will discuss how this essential oil can be used to relieve the pain of endometriosis in the menstrual cycle of women.

What is Clary Sage Oil?
Clary Sage has been traditionally used to treat muscle pain. This oil is also known as Clary and is extracted from Salvia Sclarea from the Labiate family.

How does Clary Sage Oil benefit women with Endometriosis?

 Nervous System: This essential oil works by reducing tension, depression, stress and insomnia. This is only possible because the oil works as a nervous system tonic medicine and relaxes the tension of the brain cells.

 Menstrual Pain: Sometimes in menstruation the uterine muscle becomes overly active and as a result this causes pain around the area. This is where Clary Sage oil works by strengthening the function of the liver.

 Heavy Menstrual blood flow: Women with heavy menstrual blood flow during their menstrual cycle should use the Clary Sage Essential Oil as it will help reduce the heavy flow by increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients for our body.

 Immune System: This essential oil is a natural anti-oxidant as it contains linalool which increases the immune system function and restricts the damage caused by oxidation.
Clary Sage essential also contains a natural anti septic agent called caryophyllene, which kills the bacteria responsible for causing disease.

Fights against Leukemia
A promising study conducted at the Department of Immunology, Hellenic Anticancer Institute in Athens, Greece, examined the role that sclareol, a chemical compound found in clary sage oil, plays in fighting leukemia.

DIY Pure Pulse Point Perfume
 Clary Sage 0.05gm= 1 drop
 Sandalwood Australian 0.05gm=1 drop
 Lime 0.05gm= 1 drop

In a little dish mix these oils and anoint your pulse points or chakras – 3 drops of essential oils and dilute with a few drops of carrier oil – always patch test first!

Essential Oils for Endometriosis
Clary sage essential oil helps balance hormones and has been found to effectively reduce the symptoms of endometriosis. Apply 2-4 drops topically over abdomen and apply a warm compress over the area.

Taking 3 drops internally of frankincense and sandalwood essential oils may also help reduce inflammation and support healing.

Conclusion:
It can be concluded from the information in this article that Clary Sage oil is definitely worth a shot especially for women suffering endometriosis in their menstrual cycle.

For sachet:
To do this, just add some dried lavender with herbs like lemon, chamomile or mint leaves and place them in a small pouch. Pouch can easily be made by using your old t-shirt and some ribbon. Just cut your old t-shirt into a circle, add herbs of choice, and tie up with the ribbon.

For refreshing carpets and rugs:
Mix 2-4 cups of baking soda with 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil. Put in a plastic ziplock bag and let it sit for few days to dry out. Once you take this mixture out, fresh, wonderful, and soothing scent will touch your nose. Then just sprinkle it over your carpet. Let it sit for like 5 minutes and then you are more than welcome to vacuum up. Your carpet will smell amazing and fresh after this.

To refresh rooms:

You can also make lavender potpourri with dried lavender, fresh lavender, and a few drops of lavender essential oil. You can add any other types of dried flowers or herbs if you want to.

For bathrooms:
You can simply make decorative lavender soap out of simple melt and pour soup bases. These soap bases are available at any hobbyist store such as Michaels. You can also obtain an unlimited amount of moulds of different shape. It would be great if you find a leaf shaped mould and then make your soup in it. Take the soap base of your choice and melt it and pour it into moulds. To create the enchanting fragrances of lavender just add some lavender essential oil like about 5 drops to the soap base once it is melted. Make sure you do not add it when the base is hot or else you will destroy the lavender’s beneficial properties. When it is cooled you will achieve some very wonderful smelling soap that will keep your bathroom fresh.

Conclusion:
No matter how much Lavender is beneficial for skincare, you cannot digest it. So, even if you think that lavender oil is a wonderful miracle cure, don’t ever think about putting it on your food! So what do you say about using Lavender in different ways? (other than eating of course).
