It is good for you! 

Ever heard about the benefits of horseradish sauce? Well, today at OiB I am going to talk about it. 


There are numerous health benefits of horseradish sauce. But first let’s introduce horseradish sauce to you. Horseradish sauce is made by shredding and pounding the fresh root then lemon juice is added to it. In this form, horseradish can be stored in a cool dry place for a week.  

Horseradish plant is a plant that you cannot be successfully put through a juicer machine. The reason behind this is that it possesses extremely strong essential oils, so string that the toughest physique will find them hard to tolerate.  


Basically, horseradish herb is very beneficial for dissolving mucus in the nose, so all the people out there either suffering from cold and flu or sinus must start using it. Check out the recipe below: 

Take half a teaspoon of sauce without dilution, twice a day. Do not eat or drink anything for at least 10 minutes after consuming it. There will be a powerful feeling in the head, sometimes with sweating and usually accompanied by a lot of tears, but do not worry it won’t happen because of pain. These are the indications that your sinus or flu is going away.  

Sinus causes much troubling pain and misery. The horseradish attacks its cause and brings relief. Sometimes it is compulsory to continue the treatment for several months, but you will know when horseradish has done its work. You will notice that the violent sensations resulting from the use of the sauce will gently reduce, and then finally will disappear with mucus.  

It is a good idea to combine this treatment with radish juice, including both leaves and root carrot. These two will help in rebuilding the tissues ravaged by the sinus infection. You will understand that it is also essential to make sure that your eating pattern becomes well-balanced. Make sure you consume the basic natural diet and avoid the intake of refined carbohydrates.  

Just so you know that horseradish is also specific for relieving water retention, or dropsy, as it is used to be called. This is tied in with a stimulating effect on the blood capillaries caused by the action of the main therapeutic principle in the plant, a glycoside called sinigrin. Horseradish possesses high percentage of vitamin C content with 114mg per 100g (4oz)-this is one of the highest vegetable concentrations. It also contains highest amount of potassium and sulphur, and good quality of calcium. Women are recommended to use it in their diet.  

Other uses are best for diabetics, where Professor Kuhn found an improvement in the blood pressure, for coughs and catarrh, and in the treatment of circulatory problems of a mild nature.

Why Yogurt Is Necessary For Glowing Skin?

Why Yogurt Is Necessary For Glowing Skin? –

Yogurt is actually fermented milk rendered by bacteria; however, it does not mean that milk gone bad can be taken as yogurt. You must be familiar with it as it is the food famous in all cultures and is a part of almost every kind of cuisine whether it is European, American or Asian. In ancient India, yogurt when combined with honey was called, ‘the food of gods’.

Not only that it is famous for its taste but also it is famous for its amazing health and skincare benefits. Though, it is hitherto unknown where did yogurt come from but it seems to be made in Mesopotamia for the first time in 5000 BC.

Skin Type

  • Oily Skin: Yogurt suits oily skin because it is acidic in nature and can manage the oily skin.
  • Dry Skin: Yogurt is a natural moisturizer and thus is good for dry skin.
  • Normal Skin: Yogurt is best for normal skin and gives the best effects.

Note: It is not good when used alone for sensitive skin as it is acidic and may cause inflammation.


  • Moisturizes Skin

If you have a dry skin, then there is nothing you can want more. Furthermore, even for oily and neutral skin types it is good and rejuvenates skin as it has moisturizing tendency in moderate amounts. Furthermore, it makes skin elastic and gives a glow to it.

  • Removes Wrinkles

You can say that it is anti-aging as it alleviates the wrinkles and lines. It contains lactic acid which acts an exfoliator. By removing the first layer comprising dead cells, it gives way to a fresh and glowing skin and thus prevents wrinkles to appear.

  • Cures Acne

It is one of the best home remedies to treat acne. You can get rid of these depressing pimples by using plain yogurt.

  • Removes Pigments

It also helps removes pigmentation and blemishes left by the acne which usually take a lot of time to fade away.

  • Reduces Dark Circles

Your genes and the sleepless nights are the causes for your dark circles. But in either case yogurt can reduce them.

Plants That Purify Air

Plants That Purify Air

 What do NASA spaceships and your household have in common? The air inside it and how stale it can get when the windows are closed! So, dear OiB readers, I ask you: how do you purify your home’s air? For me, I rely on clean-air plants alongside other organic cleaners and purifiers. It is time to grow a green thumb and bring these plants that purify air into your home.

 There was a discovery not too long ago by NASA through the Clean Air Study about several species of houseplants that draw formaldehyde and other toxins from the air.

Plants That Purify Air –
  1. English Ivy (Hedera helix)

Ivy is a resilient little plant that does well in low or moderate light in a variety of temperatures. It happens to love small spaces, too. The dense foliage has superior formaldehyde and other contaminant absorption powers, so if you live in an urban zone, English Ivy is perfect for you. A couple pots around the house will do wonders!

  1. Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata)

Feathery leaves and stunning fronds make the Boston fern an ever popular plant to keep indoors. I think they look splendid in hanging baskets in the kitchen or bedroom. Best of all, the Boston Fern is up in the purification rankings. But do note that ferns do not like dry air and can be challenging without constant humidity.

  1. Peace Lily (spathiphyllum)

Though these plants do not get too big, they are tremendous for ridding the air of pollutants like ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. Keep your peace lilies in a shady spot and maintain a damp soil. In the summertime, you will be gifted with fragrant blossoms. If you have a pollen allergy, though, you may want to rethink the peace lily.

  1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)

Also called “mother-in-law’s tongue,” this plant with dagger-shaped leaves thrives without much light or care. During the nighttime hours, the snake plant will consume carbon dioxide and release pure oxygen. Recommended for bedrooms. Snake plant also rids the air of benzene and formaldehyde.

Plants That Purify Air –
  1. Dracaena

Lucky bamboo is just one example of the over 40 different dracaena species out there. They are hardy plants with wide leaves in multiple colors. Whether you place them in low light or high, or in humid climates, dracaena hold up well. If you have curious animals, especially cats, do be careful. Dracaena is toxic when digested.

Not only do plants seriously liven up the space, they improve the quality of the air you breathe. You will feel more refreshed instantly. Now that you know what plants clean the air, pick up a few the next time you pass the local florist. With springtime right around the corner, there is no better time to go green!

2 DIY Recipes for Dry Skin Problems

Winter brings the cold and dry weather which makes the skin flaky and dry. It sucks out the smoothness and moisture in the skin. Even though winter is not the only cause of dry skin; there are some other factors which are associated with dry skin such as nutritional deficiency, aging, and much more. Some of us may not take dry skin issues seriously because there are numbers of moisturizers and lotions available in the market. But, do you know that those kinds of lotions contain chemical ingredients which may make the dry skin conditions worse?

So, what is the solution to treat dry skin? Well, today on OiB, I am going to reveal natural DIY recipes for dry skin problems. If you have dry skin, you can use these recipes to bring back the skin’s moisture.

Milk treatment |
Milk treatment |


Milk has been the secret for beautiful skin for centuries. Even the famous Cleopatra is known to bath with milk which results in the healthy and glowing skin. Milk contains lactic acid which helps skin exfoliating and preserves the skin’s pH levels. For dry skin issue, milk works like magic because it is an excellent moisturizer. For deep moisturizer, I usually use:

  • Mix a teaspoon or two teaspoons of milk cream with some drops of lemon juice. Rub the mixture on the hands, legs, and other dry skin areas. Leave the mixture for some minutes and then take a shower.
  • Combine three or four tablespoons of flour and some milk cream into a thick paste. Apply the mixture in hands, legs, face, and other dry skin areas and leave the mixture for 15 minutes. I usually rinse the milk mask with lukewarm water and repeat the step once a day.
Oil Therapy |

Oil therapy

When it comes to dry skin natural remedies, the best treatment that you can get is oil therapy. Applying oil or essential oil into the dry skin area will help restore the moisture in the skin. Oil therapy is not limited to certain oil selection only; in fact, you can use any oil that is available in the kitchen such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, almond oil, and much more. I love applying olive oil or grape seed oil and give light massage to the body and then head for the shower. Heating the oil before applying to the body is also a good choice if you have some more free time. After the shower, I also apply a light moisturizer or sunscreen for sunscreen prevention.

Cinnamon in DIY Skincare

What to avoid?

When having dry skin, there are some points to avoid which are using scented soap and also avoid alcohol and caffeine. Scented soap and detergent are known for having irritant substances which can cause skin dry and irritation. It contains lots of chemical substances compared to the unscented products. In addition, to prevent dry skin, I also limit the alcohol and caffeine consumption because it makes the body dehydration. I drink more plain water to keep the skin healthy and moisturized from within.

Dry skin is indeed annoying; but with the right treatment, you can eliminate it and restore the skin moisture using simple home remedies such as milk and oil therapy.

Have you tried these treatments before? 🙂
