Coffee | OrganicIsBeautiful

Coffee in your daily skin care

The first ever post media on OiB a few months back was a cup of coffee. This one. 10 months later, it is with no surprise that coffee becomes an actual topic, not just a cute photo. I love coffee. I always knew it was a plus (not a minus) in any beauty regimen. I already mentioned it here back in July, and even here earlier this year. I though today is the day to get messy. No more sweet talk, ditch the chocoloate and honey. Today, we go raw. Starting by a killer question (suspense mood on):

 ⇒ How to incorporate Coffee in our daily skincare routine? 

You know you can incorporate coffee into your daily skin care , well no right? Even though it’s a widely consumed beverage but it has also got other not so popular benefits. Today we are going to discuss those.

You have heard it right!!! You can use coffee for your daily skin care routine. This is because coffee has got certain essential agents which are beneficial for your skin like the antioxidants, it prevents the aging of your skin. Quite shocking right? Something like coffee which you use to energize yourself in the morning can be used on your skin? To be frank, I was shocked too.

Enough of the blabbering, so let’s see why you should use coffee as your daily skin care product:

Prevents premature aging

Coffee has a rich quantity of anti-oxidants when you consume coffee you take those antioxidants inside, these are the agents that stunt your skin from aging. Antioxidants are greatly natural remedies to combat wrinkles and dryness.

Makes your skin smooth and soft

One of the basics of skincare is removing the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This keeps your skin healthy and fresh. In order to remove dead skin, you need a substance that is rough and strong but not so strong that they may ruin your skin. This is where coffee comes into play, it is a best natural exfoliation agent. It can be used as a natural scrub to get rid of dead skin cells, hence maintain a smooth and soft skin.

Reduces soreness of the skin

Strong antioxidants in coffee have got many anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces puffiness and soreness of the skin. It is the best alternative to harmful cosmetics. Later I’ll tell you how to make a DIY coffee mask help to reduce the soreness of the skin.

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).
