Uses of Lavender Essential Oil

If you are looking to use just one essential oil, this is it! Lavender is like by many people so today at OiB I will discuss uses of lavender essential oil.
You can use lavender essential oil in hundreds and thousands of ways, and to help with a variety of home care needs. Lavender essential oils have been used for many years now and while it is mainly associated with its health and beauty benefits, Lavender has plenty of home care uses as well.

While it is easy to find out where you can use lavender essential oil, it is still quite difficult to figure out how to use it. Here you go with some wheres and hows of lavender essential oil. Lavender can be easily used to refresh clothes, carpets and rooms. You can use it to refresh clothes.

Place 5 drops of lavender essential oil into about quarter cup of fabric softener, and then add into washer. Your clothes will smell like freshly plucked lavender flowers. Not only this, it will also feel softer. There is another smart thing you can do. You  can make a lavender sachet and stick it in your drawer to keep your clothes smelling fresh.

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:

Drop a few drops of lavender oil into the hot wax of burning candle, this will give off a faint smell. You can easily find lavender candles at home or any store.

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).

Alternative to Eating Eggs

p1010428

Today on OiB I will take about different alternatives to eggs. If you are a person who just cannot do it with eggs, then this article is truly the best for you. Eggs are no doubt very rich in proteins and they have such power and energy that there is actually no substitute for them. Still, I have often been asked how organic can actually be beautiful if one doesn’t want to have eggs.

There is a simple answer to that. What I have found out is that it all takes for you to know what eggs contain. You can then make up for all these things that an egg provides with intakes of different things that are rich in the same. There are three types of people who cannot have eggs

  • People who are allergic to eggs
  • People who just don’t like the smell or taste of eggs
  • Vegetarians who do not want eggs to constitute their meals

Let me first tell you what eggs contains in them. Eggs are known to be important because they have too many benefits just through one simple egg. You can make up for them by eating multiple things but you can’t find all that in one simple ingredient.

  • Eggs contain lots of proteins
  • They can be had in different quantities and do not result in causing any heart diseases.
  • They have such contents that in fact raise the good cholesterol in the body
  • They are rich in too many antioxidants
  • They have lots of vitamins, minerals and good fats in them
  • Eggs also have iron, phosphorus, selenium and choline which is important for the brain
  • They help to lose weight too

I have substituted all these with different essential ingredients. If you are looking for its substitute in taste, then make sure you try the commercial egg replacer from stores. On the other hand, for gaining health benefits I normally eat the following or replace it when I am in no mood to have an egg.

  • I replace each egg for mashed potatoes if I need to bind a cutlet, loaf or a burger
  • I make crispy tofu to have an egg-less salad
  • If the egg is used for adding moisture to any recipe, I add in ¼ cup banana puree for each egg asked for. Even apple sauce, vegan sour cream, and pumpkin can be used for the sweetness
  • For baking, I make sure that agar powder is used instead of egg whites or soda is used for cake mixes

For people who need to eat things that can in any way replace some of the health provided by eggs. They can include the following in their diet

  • Lean meat is the best option and the number one to provide many essential proteins.
  • Fish is a game changer for iron sources that make up for eggs beautifully

There are many other techniques as well. If you want to know more or have any of your own, let me be obliged by your comments below.

Your All-In- One Guide To Egg White And Its Benefits For Skin

Benefits of Egg whiteIf you’re wondering how egg white can help your skin, then you really need to have a look at the way egg white brings different advantages for your skin and how it helps to add to your beauty. Egg white has a lot of benefits and it can be applied through different mixtures on the face directly for the naturally glowing look at all times.

Skin Type
Egg whites are great exfoliating agents which is why they can be used on any type of skin without any caution. There is no irritation caused for acne-prone, dry, or sensitive skin as it is
suitable for all.

Benefits

 Nourishment
Egg whites work tremendously well to shrink down all large pores which is why
nourishment to the skin is reached in a much better way.

 Aging
Egg white is a great help for reducing signs of aging because when it is applied as a face mask, it helps to tighten the pores which ultimately results in reducing fine lines and also preventing any wrinkles.

 Facial Hair
Using a paper towel face mask along with egg whites is a great way for removing very tiny facial hair as they are pulled out when the mask is peeled off. The skin becomes very smooth besides being clearer. All you need is a paper towel to stick to the face after the egg white is applied.

 Oily Skin
Its good news for all those who have oily skin as they can reduce their oily problems now. Egg white tightens the skin, minimizes the pores, and takes in all the oil when washed with cold water.

 Acne
Egg white not only lifts the skin by tightening the pores but also fights acne very
hard—and even prevent acne from showing up beside under eye puffiness.

Precautions
While there are no precautions for egg whites except for those people who are allergic to eggs.

Traditional Use
Egg Whites are used for the health and shine of hair by applying it on the scalp in many traditional ways.

Home Made Recipe
There are more than a dozen recipes that can be used for the skin using egg whites but this recipe, I think, is by far the simplest and best one of all because it has amazing results right after one application.

All you need is to:
 Take lemon juice and egg whites.

 Whisk one egg white in a bowl along with 4 to 5 drops of lemon juice till the mixture has become frothy enough.

 Next, apply the mixture on your face, but make sure that you have washed your face very properly so that your pores are open for the mixture to settle in and do its magic.

 Let the mixture dry in for 10-15 minutes.

 Then wash it to see visibly shining skin right after one wash.

 Applying this mask twice a week will bring back your skin glow.
Hence, make sure you use these tips in the right ways and share your unique stories in the
comments section too. I would love to read your stories!

Healthy Infused Water

All functions of the body require water. It’s the body’s natural purifier, replenisher and hydrator and we need lots of it to keep our bodies functioning properly. The only problem about water is it can get a little boring. And when things get boring, watch out! That’s when we start reaching for sugary drinks. I’m avoiding all that by adding Fruit-Infused Water to my daily routine. And I have to tell you, I am absolutely loving it!

I thought I would share some of the ones I have been drinking.

  • Cucumber, Mint and Lime. Slices of cucumber, slices of half a lime and sprigs of mint mixed together with water. I found this one to have the most flavour compared to others.
  • Cucumber, Lime, Strawberry and Mint. Slices of cucumber, chopped up strawberry, slices of lime and sprigs of mint.So I added strawberry, but it’s worked!
  • Lime, Ginger and Mint. Slices of lime, sprigs of mint and slices of ginger cut up. I added more ginger into this one as I found it less gingery.

  • Lime, Kiwi, Mint and Coconut Water. Slices of lime, kiwi chopped up, sprigs of mint and coconut water. I’m not a big fan of coconut water, but putting a little at the bottom topped up with water is delicious.

The “recipe” is pretty simple. Just place slices/sprigs of your favorite flavors into a pitcher or glass. Fill with water. The longer it sits, the more intense the flavor. Then, just keep refilling with water. Drink the infused water within 2 days to keep the flavors fresh. (And I try to use organic produce whenever possible)

Once you find your favorite flavors, it’s easy to get hooked! If you come to a party at my house, there is a good chance you’ll see a big pitcher of infused water on the drink table. It’s not just tasty, it’s also very pretty to look at.

I love to make a big batch and sip on it all day. Or if I’m out and about I pour some in my reusable water bottle that I always keep with me. It’s a fun way to drink water at work or on the go. So, what are you waiting for? Go get your drink on! You know what I mean…

Here’s to the beginning of summer! Cheers 🙂

Amanda.
