Why Use Eucalyptus Oil

Prefer to read the Transcript?

In This Video I share with you Why Use Eucalyptus Essential Oil especially when you have a cough or a cold.

With the Winter season upon us, we must all take extra special precautions when it comes to the health and vitality of our bodies. We must consistently eat healthy, sleep well, keep warm, and stay as stress-free as possible.

The reality is that during the Winter season, many of us do unfortunately fall ill with sicknesses including colds, fevers, coughs, the flu, etc.

But thanks to eucalyptus oil, many of these common ailments that we tend to catch during the Winter season can primarily be avoided.

As a rule, eucalyptus oil for coughs has been shown time and time again to be extremely effective at helping aid both the symptoms of coughs and decrease the body ever falling ill with a cough.

The way to use eucalyptus oil for coughs is to massage the oil into the skin, namely, the soles of the feet. It is beneficial to mix undiluted eucalyptus oil with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil to decrease any chance of skin irritation.

Simply massage the mixture onto the soles of the feet of the one who is ill and the cough will be cured! This is even safe for children, and much healthier than traditional over-the-counter cough syrups.

In addition, eucalyptus oil is amazing at curing colds and preventing them from ever affecting the body.

To use eucalyptus oil for colds, simply make a steam inhalation. To do this, boil water on the stove and then add 3-4 drops of the oil.  Then place a towel over the head and breathe in the eucalyptus-water mixture for 10 minutes.

The anti-bacterial and antiviral properties in the eucalyptus oil will treat the cold and open up the breathing passageways in the nose.

Overall, eucalyptus is something of a miracle product that is completely natural, and works great at effectively treating both colds and coughs. To learn more about using Natural Products Visit our Blog & Subscribe to our YouTube Channel.

DIY Hydrating Hand Cream

DIY Hydrating Hand Cream

diy hydrating hand cream

Our hands go through a lot throughout our lives. They type, text, do our hair and makeup, apply skin care… They tie our children’s shoes, give massages, write out sweet messages on birthday cards… the list is truly endless.

Many of us work with our hands throughout our lives as well. For something on our bodies that does so much, it’s surprising how we don’t treat our hands as well as our faces. Hands dry out, crack, wrinkle, and age faster than most of our bodies.

So, why not treat our hands to some DIY hydrating hand cream once in a while?

This recipe has all natural ingredients with vitamins and fatty acids to help our hands. It prevents many signs of pre-mature aging to keep hands moisturized and well taken care of.

Shea butter provides deep, penetrating moisture, while coconut oil adds moisture and locks it in.

Almond oil provides additional moisturizing benefits, as well as skin care vitamins.

Lavender oil not only has antibacterial properties, it also provides a soothing scent that relaxes the mind and body.

What You Need

How to Make it

Using a double boiler on low-medium heat, melt together the raw shea butter and virgin coconut oil.

Remove from the heat, and let it sit for about fifteen minutes to cool off.

Add in the sweet almond oil and lavender essential oil.

Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, blend together for a few minutes.

Pour the mixture into a container of your choice. You can either let it sit in room temperature for several hours to cool, or put it in your fridge for an hour or two.

To use your hydrating hand cream, take a small amount and melt it between your hands by rubbing them together. Apply to both hands using a circular massaging motion, to deeply penetrate and provide long lasting moisture.

Cocoa Skin Balm

Cocoa Skin Balm

There are many different types of skin balms. Cocoa skin balm is ultra hydrating, healing, and protects skin from outside elements such as free radicals. It even has ingredients said to reduce premature aging and fine lines! It smells delectable, like chocolate with a hint of coconut.

Cocoa butter is a wonderful ingredient to add to Fall and Winter skin care products. It’s thicker than shea butter or mango butter, and hydrates even the driest of skin. It smells like chocolate, and has hardening properties making it perfect for skin balms and lotion bars. It’s hard like a rock at first when you buy it unrefined, but it melts down quite easily in a double boiler on low-medium heat.

Coconut oil is an all around amazing skin care ingredient. It has natural antibacterial properties and moisturizes as well. It replenishes skin with the moisture it needs to stay hydrated and nourished. Coconut oil even has a small amount of SPF!

Beeswax is a skin barrier and protectant. It seals in the nourishing ingredients like cocoa butter and coconut oil. It repels outside free radicals, while keeping moisture locked in while it absorbs into your skin. Beeswax is the perfect addition to a skin balm, and protects skin for hours at a time.

What You Need

  • Round tins or other small containers to store the balm
  • 1/3 cup Cocoa Butter
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 4 TBSP Beeswax Pastilles

Using a double boiler on low-medium heat, melt down your cocoa butter and beeswax pastilles. Once it is almost fully melted, add in your coconut oil. Stir occasionally while it melts together. When it is fully melted, remove it from the heat and stir once again to fully combine. Very carefully pour the mixture into the containers of your choice, and then place the containers in the freezer for two hours. Once it is solidified, you can seal the containers with the lids and store your cocoa skin balm in room temperature away from heat and moisture.

It’s the season of pumpkin spice! It’s everywhere, from coffee shops to bakeries to grocery stores. Pumpkin spice is truly a sign that Fall is upon us.

Now, your skin is primed to stay moisturized throughout the day, and all that yucky dead skin is OFF! The best part is the smell of the pumpkin spice. When you apply it and even after, there is a wonderfully fragrant fall scent lingering.
