Then, pour it out into a clean bowl and apply directly to your face and neck skin from about fifteen to twenty minutes. I usually clean it after a half our if I have many spare time to spend but then it is all up to you guys. After that, you can clean your face.

Apply the paste to your clean skin for about fifteen to twenty minutes. End by cleansing face thorughly with facial cleanser and that is all.

  1. A blend of Rice and Coriander Face Mask

To boost the benefit of Coriander, I usually mix between rice and Coriander. As it has been proven that rice is rich with anti-aging property and the Coriander oil as well.

What do you need?

  • 2 Teaspoon of Fresh Coriander oil
  • 2 Tablespoon of fresh plain yoghurt
  • 2 Tablespoon of cold aloe vera gel

  • 1 Tablespoon of rice powder
  • 2 Tablespoon of white kaolin clay

How?

First, clean with water all the ingredients before used. Blend well Coriander oil, plain yoghurt, and aloe vera gel using food processor or juice blender until smooth. You just need to mix them all in only 1 minute, but if you think that the mixture is still less smooth, you can blend it again until smooth. Then, mix the mixture with the plain milk powder, white caolin klay and rice powder, stirr it well with tool. Last, apply the mask onto your face and let it dry for about fifteen to twenty minutes. You can read, listen to music or anything you like while waiting. Rinse your face after and use face mouisturizer. For additional information, white kaolin clay is very good to absorb all the dirt on your face and leave your skin supple like a baby’s skin.

Маndаrіn Рurе Еssеntіаl Оіl – The little things We didn’t Know

 

Did you know that it is considered as the uplifting plant? It has the quality of blending well with various other essential oils like citrus, floral, wood, and herb.
You must know that the origins of the mandarin tree can be traced in China. It was named after the high officials of the former Chinese Empire. Now mandarin tree is commonly found in Southern Europe, South America, and Japan.
The mandarin tree belongs to the orange family. The pure essential oil is extracted from the outer peel of the mandarin. Through cold pressing process mandarin peel is pressed and sweet aroma scent of oil is achieved. The oil possesses the quality of improving mood and
relieving anxiety. The oil is also known as the happy oil, and the reason behind this is that this oil gives you the feeling of cleanliness. It is a favourite oil of children and parents. Do not worry! It is safe for all ages. So you can enjoy the aroma of this oil in your living room with your family.

Magic of Mandarin Pure Essential Oil
Any guesses about what is magic could be?
Well it owns therapeutic effects. There are various ways by which mandarin oil can uplift your spirits. Its pleasant and sweet aroma is helpful in preventing depression and grief. Its properties facilitate it to ease distress and also make it act as a gentle sedative.

What Mandarin Oil can do for you?
Mandarin oil is the solution for several symptoms and problems. The list of its benefits can be little bit overwhelming, but trust me you really want to know all about it. To being with, you can use it as natural cleaner around your house. Just a few drop of oil in some water will clean away all the dirt. The organic properties of mandarin oil will help in cleaning and disinfecting the items or rooms. It is especially useful for children’s room, where you would not use the products having high percentage of harmful chemicals.
Moreover, it helps in the prevention of stretch marks. You can mix mandarin oil with a carrier oil like safflower oil (check my other blog post, if you want to read about it), sweet almond, or grape seed extract, and rub it on your belly everyday while you are expecting. Checkout the recipe below.

Just mix the ingredients well and add to the bath water. You cannot use only oils to the water for obvious reasons. The do not mix, you know that. You definitely need some sort of carrier to absorb the oil and then let it mix in the water, this is the reason we used milk. I actually felt very relaxed when I tried it.

Ideal herb for skin care

Back with another essential oil post. You know what? In this generation, we have amazing companies who provide us with great quality oil but there is one oil that is super powerful: “Calendula oil”.

Calendula essential oil is another kind of oil. It has been extracted from the flower.

We have seen the usage of that kind of oil in cooking, but most of the people are scared of using this on their skin. Just because they think it could be harmful. But after medical research and experiments, it has been proved that it will not harm our skin, it even makes it healthier. (YEAH!).

Benefits:

  • It contains a great amount of moisturizer so it overcomes our dryness of skin, and the problem most of the people have split skin stuff, it resolves that as well without any pain.
  • It also helps when you are injured. Yes! You can use it on your bruises and swelling. It helps in the reduction of pain and swelling.
  • If some insect has bit you, then do not worry. Just apply some Calendula essential oil on the affected area and it will heal in no time.

Do you know that Calendula essential oil possesses therapeutic qualities?

Its medical benefits have been explored since centuries. It also has antioxidant properties. As an antioxidant, it protects the body from any damage that can be caused by аn іmmunо-suррrеssіng funсtіоn саllеd oxidants. If you combine it with olive oil, it becomes excellent salve even for serious burns, bruises, and cuts.

DIY Calendula Homemade Lotion

  • 170gm cup Almond or olive oil
  • 85gm calendula oil
  • 85gm beeswax
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in a pint sized or larger glass jar. I have a mason jar that I keep just for making lotions and lotion bars, or you can even reuse a glass jar from pickles, olives or other foods.
  2. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place over medium heat. Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water.
  3. As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars (8 ounces) are great for this. It will not pump well in a lotion pump!
  4. Use as you would regular lotion. This has a longer shelf life than some homemade lotion recipes since all ingredients are already shelf stable and not water is added. Use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits.

Although Calendula essential oil is very beneficial, I would recommend to use it carefully.

Ethically

Every time she’s next to me
Physically
Breathlessly

I need her more than air to breathe
Sharing me
There with me

Nothing less than heavenly
Readily
Steadily
