Make your own body scrub

scrub

It is so easy to make your own body scrub, without chemicals. Here you have two great D.I.Y. body scrubs.

  • 2 cups of Himalayan salt (or sea salt)
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons of soft honey
  • 2 tablespoons of good quality oil like avocado oil or almond oil
  • 10 to 20 drops of essential oil like eucalyptus, peppermint, rosemary or lavender

Put everything in a jar and mix it together with several tablespoons of water. Scrub the whole body with the body scrub and leave it on for 5 to 15 minutes before showering it off.

If you want to have a great magnesium scrub, just use Epsom salt and some good quality oil.

Enjoy!

10-day Gallbladder Flush

gall

 

Some of my friends are doing it regularly and I have done it once; a 10-day mild gallbladder flush. For ten consecutive days I ingested the following, in the mornings, on an empty stomach:

2 tablespoons of olive oil followed by 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice.

The stones won’t come out as solid stones because of the mild variation. Nevertheless, the pain in my shoulders disappeared so something did happen.

Did you know that you get stones by eating low fat food. Read more about it here and here

How to get whiter teeth naturally

activated-charcoal

There is a great way to whiten teeth naturally without using toxic chemicals.

Just use Activated Charcoal! Activated Charcoal is something that should be in the “emergency kit” if you have children, to give them if they have eaten something toxic, or in case of food poisoning.

It’s very easy! Just wet a toothbrush, open a capsule with Activated Charcoal (must be Activated!) and put it on the toothbrush. Brush for several minutes, spit it out, and rinse with water! You can also use Activated Charcoal in powder form if you prefer. I usually brush with toothpaste before I brush with Activated Charcoal, but I do not brush with Activated Charcoal every day; for a week once in a while only.

Another way is to empty a capsule directly in your mouth, brush for a while and swish it around in your mouth while showering. Spit it out and rinse with water.

Get more information here for example to check if the Activated Charcoal is from a coconut or wood source and not from petroleum.

Yes, it’s messy but it’s worth it…and you will look quite scary.

Happy Halloween!

Which plastics should you avoid?

plast

This is an important message from Dr. Mercola:

Plastic is everywhere and used for everything and it’s polluting our environment and making us sick. From food containers and utensils to bags, water bottles, shower curtains and children’s toys, plastic has become a permanent fixture in our everyday lives – but it’s one that comes with serious consequences.

I urge you to avoid using plastic materials whenever you can, but if you find that you are unable to do so, a classification system called the Resin Identification Code, which is the number printed on the bottom of most plastic bottles and food containers, can tell you what kind of plastic resin the product is made out of.

The most toxic plastics are #7, #3 and #6, while those that may be somewhat safer are #1, #2, #4 and #5.
