Lavender Oil Benefits

Some of the common uses for lavender include as an analgesic, anticonvulsive, antidepressant, antiphlogistic, antirheumatic, antseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, bactericide, carminative, cholagogue, cicatrisant, cordial, cytophylactic, decongestant, deodorant, and as a diuretic. The scent of Lavender is said to have a calming effect on the body and it can be used to reduce anxiety, stress and promote sleep.

Some people believe you can put lavender EO on a burn and it will help promote quicker healing and help stop any blistering or scarring. You can also use it when you are suffering from a headache – just take a drop and rub it on your temples to help bring relief.

Because lavender is a natural deterrent of mosquitoes and moths, among other insects, it can be dabbed on a ribbon and hung at the window to deter the former, or put on a cotton-wool ball and placed in the wardrobe to deter the latter.

Lavender has natural antibiotic and antiseptic qualities that make it a highly effective wash for cuts and scrapes.

The fact that lavender also smells fabulous makes it a must-have for any household.

It’s a MUST for your first aid kit. PLUS, there are no artificial colors or elements, no synthetic chemicals – nothing but what nature provided!

Eyes Trick and Makeup Tips

  • If you’re going to line your eyes but want them to look bigger, line only the top. But if you want to line the bottom too, line just the outer half.
  • Another tip for eyes to appear bigger: Line your eyes with white eyeliner. Darker colors make your features smaller; consequently, black eyeliner would make your eyes appear smaller.
  • Put your pencil eyeliner in the freezer for awhile before applying it. The tip will be more hard and make the eyeliner easier to apply.
  • To give the appearance of wide-set eyes (eyes that are further apart), apply eye shadow/liner on the outer part of your eyes; vice versa for a desired appearance of close-set eyes (eyes that are closer together).
  • For a modern version of liquid liner, dip your eyeliner brush in water, then eye shadow, and apply.
  • If you want a smoky eye, use an eyeliner that smudges easily, and smudge it with a spongy tip. Some eyeliners supply these on the opposite end of the liner part, like Max Factor Pensilks. After smudging your eyeliner, apply eye shadow close to the lashes in the same color as your eyeliner.
  • If you want your lashes to appear thicker, apply coats of mascara. Try not to apply it all at once, or you can get clumps.
  • To separate lashes, use a lash comb. This also gets rid of clumps.
  • When applying any eyeliner, pull your eyelid taut to make a smoother surface for the liner.
  • Apply mascara from roots to ends of lashes while moving wand from side to side.
  • Mascara starts to go bad after about 3 months or so (smell and clumps take place), so make sure to replace it accordingly.
  • Applying foundation on your lids before eyeshadow helps the shadow to stick better.
  • Usually there are three basic shades for eyeshadow and their locations: The lightest goes right below the eyebrow (to make eyes appear brighter), the darkest in the eye crease (to define your crease), and the medium shade goes on the actual eyelid (for the basic color).

The Wonders of Tea Tree

Tea tree oil is the essential oil comes from the Australian plant Melaleuca alternifolia. This species is unique to Australia native to Northern New South Wales. This tree has very strong therapeutic and medicinal values which are found in its oil, which is obtained through steam distillation from the leaves of the tea tree. It has powerful antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties, making it very versatile. This is why some people have called it the “wonder oil for the skin from down under.” Another neat fact about tea tree oil is that it is the only essential oil, except for lavender, that can be applied directly to the skin without a carrier oil. This aboriginal Australian traditional medicine is used for bruises, insect bites, and skin infections. Since tea tree oil is a strong 100% pure concentrate, very little is needed to achieve results. Therefore, it should be used very sparingly. Tea tree oil contains 48+ compounds, with the main 1 beiing terpinen-4-ol. This is what is responsible for tea tree oil’s antibacterial and antifungal properties.

We can be thankful for the Bundjalung aborigines of Northern New South Wales. They were the first to believe that tea tree leaves had tremendous healing properties. Then in 1923 Dr. A. R. Penfold discovered that tea tree oil is 13 times stronger of an antiseptic bacteriacide than carbolic acid (the universal standard at that time). Big things finally happened in the 1930’s to help advance the use of tea tree oil. In 1930 tea tree oil began being applied to pus-filled infections because of its effectiveness and the fact that it promotes the growth and repair of healthy tissue, which lessens the chance of scarring. It was also in 1930 that The Medical Journal of Australia writes its first report on tea tree oil. Finally in 1939 tea tree oil reaches its potential as it is used on World War II soldiers as a disinfectant.

You should understand that tea tree oil is a 100% natural product and thus it is entirely environmentally friendly. Plantation owners even go so far as to carefully manage the growth of the trees to ensure that the natural environment remains undisturbed. The leaves are then steamed in order to derive the oil which is extremely safe for topical use, however oral ingestion is not recommended. While there have been some occurrences of allergic reactions to tea tree oil, their incidence is extremely low when compared to synthetic products. So, considering that there are no side effects and a great rate of cases in which this oil has proven to be more than beneficial, it is no wonder that Australia exports tea tree oil to so many countries which provides a valuable boost to this country’s exporters.

The oil found in the cells of the leaves of the tea tree, which grows in Northern New South Wales and Australia, is a natural antiseptic. It is a great anti-bacterial which kills a broad spectrum of bacteria and a range of stubborn fungi like athlete’s foot. While aboriginals have been using tea tree oil for thousands of years, today there isn’t a household in Australia that doesn’t have tea tree oil in its medicine cabinet. This is because tea tree oil is helpful in numerous ways, including: bad breath, acne and blemishes, athlete’s foot, and muscle pain, just to name a few.

Tea tree oil is more commonly known as Melaleuca alternifolia. This native Australian plant has numerous remarkable properties since when it’s crushed and distilled, its leaves yield a 100% natural oil which is an antiseptic, a fungicide, and a mild solvent. When crushed, the tea tree oil yields terpinen-4-ol (typically 30-40%) which is what makes it antibacterial and antifungal. This completely natural product has a variety of uses, some of which include: medicinal purposes (ie infections, minor burns, sunburn, cuts, abrasions, grazes, sore throats, sunburn, ulcers, cold sores, pimples, acne, zits, spots), skin care and hygiene (found in ie deodorants, soaps, hand creams and lotions, toothpastes, mouthwash, sore throat lozenges, facial cleansers and used to treat ie psoriasis, dry skin rashes, fight bad breath, foot odor, athlete’s foot, nail infections, thrush, rashes, and acne), hair care (ie anti-dandruff shampoos and conditioners, treatments for damaged hair), pet care (ie dog shampoo), miscellaneous uses (ie insect repellent, relief of arthritic symptoms), and for relieving the itch from insect bites and stings. Of course, numerous other applications of tea tree oil are also still being discovered. Some of these most recent discoveries include tea tree oil helping with mouth ulcers, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, fatigue, respiratory infections, strengthening the immune system and the female reproductive system, lice, gingivitis, and female vaginal problems.

The Joy of Giving

 

Gift giving has been a practice that has a place within the earliest recollection of human interaction. Throughout history, gifts or presents have been transferred from one to another in the form of goods, money, and even intangible items that one cannot touch, smell, or see, but feel in their heart, such as compassion or friendship. For some, the act of gift giving was rewarded with some form of power, social standing, and sometimes even a wife. Others have been purely satisfied with doing something nice for another and not receiving a thing in return.One of the first memories of gift giving also shows a lesson in life, love, and sacrifice. Even in the book of Genesis, Cain and Abel gave gifts to God. Eventually, this tale would lead to one of the most known passages in the Bible regarding jealousy and murder. As the story goes, the gardener Cain gave fruit as a gift to God, while his brother, Abel offered the very best lamb from his flock. God was quite pleased with Abel’s gift, but not as impressed with Cain’s gesture. Since Abel chose to bestow a gift he valued for himself, God greatly appreciated the sacrifice. The same viewpoint on gift giving stands today.For instance, if you took the time to travel many miles to a florist that produced the same bouquet of flowers for your parent’s wedding anniversary, this gift would mean much more to them than if you took the time to pick roses from the backyard. While the bouquet of flowers from the florist may look beautiful and smell just as sweet, the parents are probably more pleased by the sacrifice of driving such a distance to pay tribute to their anniversary with an unforgettable memory.Sometimes, there are moments that do not call for the giving of gifts, but require a delicate, personal approach to the circumstances. For instance, when a friend is going through a divorce, they most likely would appreciate face-to-face comfort than receiving a gift in the mail from a long-distance friend. When this is not possible, there are still plenty of unique gift baskets on the market that can bring a smile to the most downtrodden individual.For some, spending money on a gift may put a strain on their finances, but there are many great gifts that cost nothing at all or only require a few bucks. There are also a lot of gift givers who will accompany unique gift baskets and flowers with a present that took thousands of dollars to pull off. The average cost of a gift is hard to determine. The range really involves personal preferences and budget limitations. Many individuals have also found great gift savings through making purchases on the Internet.

For those trying to save a little money, the concept of re-gifting has been used. This usually occurs when one receives a gift that is not necessarily needed or wanted. It could be a silver serving dish that you already have or an unattractive sweater that you don’t have the heart to ask for an exchange receipt. In any case, you put the gift to good use by delivering it to someone else on a special occasion or holiday. If you make this a regular process, it is important to remember whom you received the original gift from (people have been known to re-gift back to the person who gave them the present in the first place).

Why Give a Gift?

Gifts satisfy an assortment of needs and beliefs. They are used to express a wide range of feelings, such as love, friendship, and gratitude. Gift giving may serve as a form of charity, as well as shows support (as seen in political arenas). Gifts also provide a way for people to celebrate a wealth of special occasions, customs, traditions, and holidays. Below, you will find some of the most important events that bring about the outpouring of gifts:

Birthdays

Gifts play an important role in celebrating the one day of the year you call your very own. The receipt of gifts and cards, as well as unique gift baskets and flowers for the ladies are common ways to make this personal holiday even more special. As one gets older, the gift giving seems to lessen, but the act is still a frequent occurrence for individuals of all ages.

Valentine’s Day

This romantic day for sweethearts often calls for the exchange of jewelry, unique gift baskets filled with chocolates, pamper foot cream, and scented candles, as well as colorful bouquets of flowers, such as bright red roses.

Christmas
Although most of the credit goes to Santa Claus for the gift giving that occurs during this holiday season, plenty of people have delivered unique flower bouquets of poinsettias, and selected beautifully decorated unique gift baskets

filled with peppermint-flavored treats, red and green accented delights, and jingle bells.
Wedding
After attending the exchange of wedding vows, guests wine and dine at a ceremony where they bring gifts for the newly married couple. While monetary gifts serve as a tradition in many cultural circles, physical gifts, such as household goods and personal mementos are quite common.
When it comes time to give a gift, there are many other occasions that call for this type of exchange. People all over the globe mark their calendars each year to make sure they don’t miss gift-giving occasions, including baby showers, anniversaries, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, graduation, and housewarming get-togethers. As gift ideas wear thin, you can always turn to the perfect unique gift basket or colorful bouquet of flowers to give family and friends
