I’m all about the natural stuff! From my hair regimen to my foot scrub, it’s all about the natural remedies. Using simple ingredients you can find in your ridge or cupboard. I don’t like taking medication for simple things and I find my natural remedies work better. Why buy pre-made stuff when you can make it at home and put it in cute little jars or bottles. Here are some of my natural remedies I use daily, some once in a while.
Body. . .
Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Almond Oil, and Vitamin E body moisturizer (I use everyday)
Hot Lemon Water (combats water retention and bloating)
1/4 of a lemon (skin on), boil in 80z of water, cool, and drink before bed. In the morning, your body will release the water. It works, it works, it works! Try it!
Peppermint tea ( combats gas and digestive issues)
You can also put a little peppermint oil on your tongue if you have it.
Face. . .
Apple Cider Vinegar and Healing Clay Mask ( skin brightner). Purchase both at Wholefoods Market
Dr. Bronner’s Magic Peppermint Soap (use on hair, face, and body)
I use this in the shower as a shower gel and massage all over. Place the hot wash cloth with remnants of peppermint on your face for a refreshing end to your shower. Helps wake you up!
Sugar Honey Lip Scrub (haven’t made this yet, but looks good)
Avocado, Raw Honey, and Argan Oil Mask (Great for dry skin and winter dryness)
Hair. . .
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse, more deets here…
I use this after I wash my hair with a sulfate free shampoo or conditioner wash. Then apply a leave-in conditioner.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil and your hair, more deets here. . .
Promotes hair growth
Mayo, Olive Oil, Egg, and Lemon deep conditioner after washing (Adds shine, strength, and promotes hair growth)
You can use many different oils to make this mixture. Coconut Oil would be great!
Olive Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Rosemary oil, Jojoba oil, Almond Oil, Argan Oil hair elixir
I use this mixer every other night to oil my scalp. A little goes a long way!
Aloe Vera Juice, Purified Water, Rose water hair spritz (Makes my hair so soft)
I wet my entire head and massage into scalp before I wash my hair. Sometimes I don’t even get in the shower to wash my hair. I saturate hair with it and then do a conditioner wash. Then do an apple cider rinse.
Feet. . .
Olive or Grapeseed Oil, Raw sugar, and Lavender Scrub (works great for exfoliation and the lavender combats tired feet)
I’ve tried it with grapeseed oil and lavender oil.
Cold Season. . .
Lots of Ginger, lots of Lemon, and lots of honey tea (combats sore throat, common cold, and soothes you soul)
This tea is MAGIC! Ladybird Dyan can attest to that.
Sleep aid. . .
Chamomile tea or a little sniff of fresh lavender before bed (I sleep like a baby)
I think those should get you started if you’re looking for all natural remedies. They are the best and really do work!
