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).

Types of Salts

The Different Types of Salts

The Different Types of Salts – Organicisbeautiful.com

Today in OiB, I’m thinking about Salt. Salt is one of the most basic ingredients of life. It is the basic unit and also has many different types. It has a lot of varieties and uses as well. The different types are given below:

  • Iodized Table Salt

This type is the most known type of all salts as it is used at home in ordinary cooking. It is normally present at the table for sprinkling over foods. The salt is mixed by manufacturers with the iodine mineral which is why it is called as iodized salt. It helps to do away with diseases that are related to iodine deficiencies and lack of iodine through diet as well such as Hypothyroidism, etc. However, the amount should not also be taken in excess as well.

  • Sea Salt

As the name indicates, sea water is evaporated to get this type of salt which is made up of crystals that are larger than the normal iodized table salt. The crystals are also rougher in comparison whereas it is extracted in many places all over the world. Fleur de sel or Flower of salt is extracted in the France region through a manual method. It involves scarping of the topmost layer through scraping before it starts sinking at the bottom of the large salt pan. It is just as if the cream is taken above all and is therefore the most expensive salts of all.

Dead Sea Salt | OrganicIsBeautiful

The one extracted from the Celtic Sea is known as the Celtic Sea Salt that is extracted using a 2,000-year-old method in Brittany, France.

  • Pickling Salt

Pickling is something which adds zest and spice to life. This type of salt has no additives in it and is used to pickle foods as brines. It is because of this no additive technology that the liquid does not come up like in table salt which has additives and anti-caking agent in it.

The Different Types of Salts – organicisbeautiful.com
  • Kosher Salt

Kosher salt is so named so because it is normally used when someone is making kosher meat. It has crystals that are rougher as well as bigger besides being irregular in shape. Kosher meat preparation requires driving out all the blood of the animal through cooking first and kosher salt no doubt does that. It is also a choice of many cooks because of its lighter flavor and lesser level of additives too.

  • Himalayan Pink Salt

Found within the Himalayan Range, the fossilized salt form the sea is pink because it is truly rich in Iron and more expensive than normal salt as it is healthier and pure as well.

  • Black Salt

Black salt is not actually black in color but pinkish grey in color. It is actually a spice found in Southeast Asia in India and has a very strong Sulphur smell. It is also used in the US to give an egg-like flavor to dishes.

Since most of the salt we consume is not pure like Fleur de sel hence it should not be consumed too much as excess of everything is surely bad for all. What do you think of salt and which type you use the most, and why?

They believe that a woman who takes care of things as petty as her feet is greatly managed. So why not do the following to pamper one’s feet naturally and have the best of both personality and your feet.

  • Employ a DIY manicure (preparing you a step by step infographic very shortly)

I recall when I finished my first 50km in the tropical forest of Malaysia last year, my feet hurts so bad! I used a few technics listed below to help recover.

All these tips have greatly helped me to have much better skin on my feet and every pair of shoes, every slipper looks good on my feet after proper care. Even the skin is rejuvenated and flushes its pink color to make my feet look enhanced and naturally blooming. This can be done though the following remedies in particular:

Use Toothpaste

Have your own manicure through doing away with yellow nails. Just dab some whitening toothpaste over your nails and let them sit while you watch one of your favorite episodes.

Use Salt and Oils

You can moisturize your feet through by removing dead skin cells. Use coarse salt and mix it with some vegetable oil which shouldn’t dissolve all the way. Some examples are Coconut oil or Carrot Oil, they both works fine. Rub with a pumice stone and rinse to have your pink heels again.

If you need help figuring out which salt to use, feel free to check the relevant article here.

Soak Techniques

Use water to soak your feet for 10 to 20 minutes or add optional honey with milk. Rinse and apply moisturizer. Alternatively, you can also apply a homemade paste to your skin by adding to 0.2 cup of raw honey, rosemary and peppermint solution. Your feet will naturally absorb the paste during your sleeping or rest time.

Use Cuticle Cream

Trim and clip your toe nails and massage using cuticle creams in a circular motion or even use mayonnaise for the same.

Use Milk

You can soften your soles through adding 0.25 cup milk in some water and soaking them for an hour. While all this can pamper your feet greatly, share with us how your feet changed through these remedies or share some of your own tips with us too.

Milk as well as yogurt is a natural exfoliant and helps smooth dry skin. My long-time dried legs are now gone!
