Let me tell you how it helps in nature while I will also let you in to a DIY cure too.

First let’s see what Fenugreek leaves are and from where did they actually evolve. Was it some scientist’s organic experiment, or some greedy witch’s spell set loose? Well Fenugreek is a plant that grows in nature every year while it has leaf bunches of two to three leaflets in it. It is grown all over the world while is quite dominated over the Indian sub-continent (near East). Growing countries include Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Morocco and such others.

You could use this warm water to wash your face every day and see the results. These were two separate procedures for glowing skin but I combined both of them to receive such added benefits that I don’t need my base anymore! All I do is dab some moisturizer, put on my mascara and red lipstick and I am ready to glow out all day and all time! I keep my Fenugreek water handy and wash my face whenever I need to.

Some people would have tried everything but not gotten much instant results.

Well, I can help you with that as I have too many Fenugreek remedies, the question is, are you willing to ask or will you continue following chemical peels that have instant results?

Thank you for stopping by, as always, I am excited to see that OiB community is growing day by day 😉

Saturday Relaxation with Dead Sea Salt and Ginger

This year I made myself a promise that I was going to take time for myself. Whether it is five minute or maybe an hour to do something that relaxes me or de-stresses me. Today I am sharing with you one of those things which is taking bubble baths. I also wanted to share my three essential products that make my bath time extra special.

A bit of History

Japan flag OrganicIsBeautiful

The Onsen is the Japanese bathing ritual based on soaking in scalding bath water and sweating to achieve good health and relaxation.

Spiritual pursuits of purity, hygiene and ritual purification were an important part of Japanese culture and bathing was done communally without regard for division of the sexes.

 

 

Turkish Flag OrganicIsBeautifulWhat about Turkey? The Turkish bath is also called a Hammam.

It is an Arabic word meaning ‘spreader of warmth’ and represents in the East a very long and rich culture of bathing of the Romans, Ottomans, Persians and Arabs.

Nowadays, you can find a few hammam spa across Paris as well.

Hungary Flag OrganicIsBeautifulHungary is the country that pops into my mind when I think bathing traditions. A traditional thermal bath dating back to the 16th century.

Nowadays, it is with no surprise that Hungary is the largest medicinal bath in all Europe! A stop in Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is a fabulous experience and an amazing week trip away.

 

A Salt Bath

A salt bath is among the oldest baths out there, and has been used for many years to help people relax and unwind. Yes, a more leisurely soak with bathing ingredients carefully chosen will support internal cleansing, overall health and even to remedy specific ailments or injuries.

My Bath Essentials 

  1. Epsom Salt. High in magnesium, it has beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind and soul. It is a must-have!

The Epsom Salt Industry Council lists the non-exhaustives benefitits found in the Epsom Salt:

  • Improved heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.
  • Improved ability for the body to use insulin, reducing the incidence or severity of diabetes.
  • Flushed toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.
  • Improved nerve function by electrolyte regulation. Also, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.
  • Relieved stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.

 2. Sea Salt. According to OrganicFact.com, the mineral content in Dead Sea salt have long been appreciated for their rejuvenating effects on the skin. Bathing in a Dead Sea salt solution helps in keeping the skin moisturized and revitalized.

3. Ground Ginger. Ginger, as we all know, has a peculiar fragrance and is a strong spice offering several beauty benefits. It is packed with antioxidants and is antiseptic in nature, which makes it extremely useful to resolve problems like signs of anti-ageing, acne, skin burns, but also… dandruff!

 4. Apple Cider Vinegar

 5. Baking Soda. Baking soda isn’t only for baking. Combined with water, it contains strong healing properties that help soothe the skin.

And, the OiB suggestion, some a few drops of lavender essential oil. (You know that I am a big fan of lavender essential oil. In my previous article, I mentioned its benefits to help falling asleep like a baby!) You can also use other essential oil made to ease the relaxation process: 

  • Lavender – Calming
  • Grapefruit – Uplifting
  • Peppermint – Fatigue
  • Cedarwood – Depression
  • Chamomile & Rosemary – Headache
