Traditional Skincare Usage

Bergamot oil is used for:

  • Medicines
  • Treating infections
  • Improving digestion
  • Lowering fever
  • Earl Grey Tea

Precautions

  • Consult a Professional Before Using Bergamot oil is safe for use but I would advise you to consult a physician before using it for your treatment. Also, do not apply it to young children and pregnant women.
  • Not Safe for Consuming Bergamot Oil should not be consumed directly as some people have said that it can be fatal. Also, it can cause you twitching and muscle cramps because it removes potassium stores in your body. 
  • Bergamot Oil Can Increase Your Chances of Sun Damage Do not use the oil with photosensitizing drugs such as Noroxin (Norfloxacin), Floxin (Ofloxacin), Cipro (Ciprofloxacin), Levaquin (levofloxacin), and, Maxaquin (lomefloxacin). As this can lead you to very severe reactions.

Homemade Earl Grey Tea for Skin:

  • Use fresh cold water from the kettle.
  • Boil it to 208° Fahrenheit.
  • Warm the pot so your tea doesn’t cool down too fast and stays hot for a longer time.
  • Adjust the measurement. One teaspoon should be used for a six-ounce cup and two teaspoons per eight-ounce glass of an iced tea. You can also adjust it to best suit the taste you want it to have.
  • Steep it for at least 3-5 minutes to get complete benefit of it. You can also serve it with a slice of lemon or sugar for taste.

So, I recommend you to have Bergamot essential oil in your cabinet because it can be useful for you in the long run. Try it and comment below about your experience with it.

Benefits of Ginger

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.

∴ Instructions

1 – Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with about an inch of water. They will plump as they absorb water. Let stand on the counter, covered with a cloth, overnight. You can also refrigerate for up to 2 days.  It will do the job  😉  ❤ Simple.

2- Drain the almonds from their soaking water and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water. You will notice at this point the almonds feel a little squishy if you pinch them.

TIPS : It’s best to discard the soaking water because it contains phytic acid, which inhibits the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

3- Place the almonds in the blender and cover with 2 cups of water. Pulse the blender a few times to break up the almonds, then blend continuously for two minutes. The almonds should be broken down into a very fine meal and the water should be white and opaque.

Done! Taste the almond milk, and if a sweeter drink is desired, add sweetener to taste.
