Have you heard about amaranth oil? Today oib I’m going to tell you about amaranth oil its origin, its benefits and techniques to use it in your daily life. Nice right? 🙂

Amaranth oil is extracted from the seed of amaranth flowering plant. It is a prehistoric plant and is being cultivated from ancient times. The oil has many essential nutrients which went carefully used can be extremely beneficial for your skin. Not only for skin is also used in food items and medicines and various religious ceremonies in Asian countries. We already talked about how rice powder, shikakai leaf or cinnamon are locally sourced here and used in skincare treatment.

But amaranth oil is more famous for its beauty perks than its uses in food. The oil is rich in nutrients and can give you a clean and refreshing look. Amaranth oil is beneficial for your skin not only by applying it on your body but also by consuming. You can use the amaranth leaves in salads and oil in various food products. Amaranth oil will help you to beautify your skin and hair from inside out. But I usually prefer it to use externally and it definitely shows immediate results.

Ways to use amaranth oil:

1. Applying directly on your skin:

You can apply and oil directly on your skin, try twice a day right out the shower in the morning and before bedtime in the evening. Take about 2 to 3 drops of amaranth oil in your palm and slowly apply it on your face, hands, legs and other parts of the body. Gently massage it on your body and allow the oil to seep into your skin.

Result: The oil oxidizes your skin and gives a very refreshing look, it also helps to get rid of dead skin cells.

2. Amaranth hair conditioner:

  • 2 drops of amaranth oil
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 3-4 drops lavender essential oil or olive oil

Then, follow the next 4 simple steps:

  1. Takes coconut oil in a small bowl, add two drops of amaranth oil and 5 to 7 drops of lavender.
  2. Mix the mixture will tell you to get a single homogeneous liquid.
  3. Take this mixture into your hands and slowly rub it on your hair. Make sure it reaches the scalps and the tip of your hair, take your time to massage the mixture. I prefer to use a comb to ensure the oil is spreading evenly.
  4. Now take a hot damp towel and wrap it around your hair for about 30 minutes. Now you can watch the mixture off.

1. Keep Your Skin Beautiful

Easy!

Fennel seeds are very rich in dozens of minerals. They provide iron, copper, selenium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, Vitamin A, C and E besides fiber which makes the skin become beautiful overall.

Note The presence of fiber-rich food in your diet ensures that your body gets more time to absorb the nutrients required for collagen production

2. Antiseptic

They provide anti-septic effects since the skin is nourished with loaded essentials of all time that have made the immune system strong to be weakened.

3. Bring the right amount of Anti-oxidant for your skin

The anti-oxidant factor replenishes the skin whenever anything harmful gets in contact with the skin’s layer or skin’s cells. It neutralizes the bad effect and keeps the skin vibrant.

When it comes to anti-aging ingredients, the research is abundantly clear: Antioxidants reign supreme. Not only do antioxidants combat the free-radical damage that is responsible for the visible (and hidden) signs of aging, they also enhance the effectiveness of sunscreens in preventing sun damage.

Note Those powerful antioxidants are just one of the reasons that studies are revealing this may be another natural ingredient linked to a decreased risk of developing cancer cells.

4. Your skin is damaged? Fennel seeds can also help!

The skin is toned well which is why cell damage is prevented and acne conditions can be treated as well too.

Recall my previous article on the benefit of Argan Oil for your skin, especially when you start loosing the natural elasticity of the skin.

They help you stay away from aging problems like dark to light spots, wrinkles, fine lines etc.

5. Give back Your Skin its Natural Glow

The different vitamins help providing a younger looking skin with a great glowing complexion as the skin is soothed and is free of any skin inflammation, irritation or condition too.

6. A tea break? Try Fennel tea !

If Fennel tea is taken on a daily basis, then this can impart a greater and smoother texture to the skin. This Fennel tea can be bought or made very easily as well. It just includes mixing in and blending together to have equal amount of crushed fennel seeds and boiling water made into an effective tea.

When zinc, selenium and calcium combine together at one place, they provide a great combinational cooling effect that balances the oxygen within to provide a healthier skin.

If you’re looking for some other way than Fennel tea to incorporate in your daily beauty regime, then you can do so taking it during meals that uses it or as a mouth freshener many times. Decide the right pea-sized amount that you can intake easily. You can even garnish any kind of salad you like to enjoy well too. It is great for garnishing, where one can consume it without knowing.

It can also be consumed as fennel water, which can be applied after heating tablespoons of fennel seeds into a glass of water at low temperature for about 15 minutes and mixing with a tablespoon of yoghurt to apply for 15 minutes.

You can also drink fennel mixed in water or add it to any of your day infused detox water recipes.

How Does Ayurvedic Medicine Works?

What is Ayurveda medicine?

Ayurvedic medicine is the one of the oldest documented Indian health systems.

“Ayurveda” is translated from Sanskrit (the equivalent language to Latin in India) to mean “the science of life“. Ayurveda is not a “one-size-fits-all” system. Instead, its regimens are tailored to each person’s unique prakruti (Ayurvedic constitution).

Religion doesn’t play a key role in the practice of Ayurveda; the concept of balance or harmony is more important.

The beliefs

A key tenant of Ayurveda is its focus on individual treatment. Ayurvedic practitioners believe that each person is born with a unique mixture of the three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each dosha itself is made up of five elements: space, air, fire, water and earth.

  • Air represents all that is gaseous.
  • Water consists in all liquid.
  • Earth relates to any solid matters.
  • Fire, any matter that can be transformed


3Vata
Energy that controls the body movements, its overall motion: blood circulation, breathing, blinking, and heartbeat.

Pitta Energy that controls the body’s metabolism, its overall food transformation: digestion, absorption, nutrition, and temperature.

Kapha Energy that controls the body fluids that soften both Pitta and Vata’s energies in the body. It supplies water to all body parts, moisturizes the skin, and maintains the immune system.

 

The Pros?

    → Priority to balancing lifestyle, diet, habits and surroundings.

This is because it’s believed that imbalances occur due to stress, unhealthy diet, weather and strained relationships.

    → Only natural substances derived from plants, fruits, vegetables and natural minerals.

    → Side-effect are limited.

   → Complete and effective treatment, “root-cause” based, not “symptomatic”

    → No surgical procedure needed.

The Cons?

Medicinal effect can vary from one person to another.

Many Ayurvedic treatments — like meditation and individualized diets — are therefore aimed at keeping a person healthy, not curing them of disease. It can not cure any kind of disease or illness.

Some unofficial substances mixed with the Ayurvedic formula are now available in the market today. As a consumer, you need to be careful in buying unadulterated medicine from the market

Reliability of the medicines and the physicians

For instance, in the USA, there is no official licensing procedure for Ayurvedic practitioners. Qualifications and credentials of practicing physician must be established. If you’re considering an Ayurvedic treatment, or any other alternative therapies, be sure to speak with your primary care physician or other health care professional. Some Ayurvedic treatments may be dangerous when combined with prescription or over-the-counter medicines.
