Did you know that Aloe Vera Gel has excellent benefits for the hair? It promotes hair growth, cleanses the scalp, and balances the ph levels on the scalp, hair dryness, hair loss, and much more.

The ALOE plant can be found in your nearest garden store or you can simply grow aloe plants in planters pot. So SIMPLE.

Lovely Lavender


Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of lavender plant, primarily through steam distillation. I love the smell of lavender. It is great for your skin, hair, and body.

Spritzing your bed pillows lightly with lavender will help calm and relax you from a stressful day. Lavender mixed with a vegetable carrier oil will strengthen your hair and promotes hair growth .

Lavendar flower

 

Excellent for aching muscles, relaxation, stress relief. Add 6-8 drops Lavender essential oil after running the water and vigorously swish water. Add the drops to a capful of Epsom salts and then put in the bath. This helps to disperse the oils through out the water. This is a great way to receive the benefits of Lavender oil. Lie back and enjoy.

 

New Moms And Baby.


Moms , please don’t try to be  super mom after bringing your baby home from the hospital.  Support from your spouse , friends, and family is your support system. Don’t hesitate asking for what you need for yourself and your baby.Mothers need to focus on healing from post birth and caring for their little one. Healing takes up to 6 weeks or more depending on  if you had a cesarean or vaginal birth. Avoid becoming overly stressed. BALANCE is the key.

According to CDC., new mothers who experience perinatal mood and anxiety disorders is more likely in the 20% range, which would mean around 1.3 million will develop postpartum depression.

Some newborns are extremely colicky whether you breast or bottle-feed. If you aren’t prepared,  this will drive you insane, because the baby will cry nonstop throughout  the night for weeks or months. If  you decide to breastfeed, research and talk to your doctors often. Breastfeeding isn’t easy, it is extremely difficult if you have never nursed.  If you can hack it for 3 months, most likely you will continue.


DETANGLING NATURAL HAIR


Detangling natural hair can become frustrating and laboring. The best way to remove tangles from the hair is using water first before applying products to the hair. Using the kitchen sink is ok, but running water from the shower is better, because the strong pressure from the water separates the tangles with the use of your fingers. After this step, separate hair into four sections with twists to keep hair from clumping together. Apply shampoo section by section. Rinse all shampoo residue from the hair, apply conditioner by following the same step for shampooing. Rinse and style.

Breastfeeding Your Baby

Deciding to breastfeed  can be a scary and awkward situation  for new mothers, because  most moms don’t have the correct information and knowledge about this form of feeding. Breastfeeding has many benefits to the mother and baby.The mother heals faster,  mother and child bonds quicker, economical, quicker weight loss,convenient,and decreases some forms of cancers. For the baby, the mother breast produces Colostrum which is known as GOLD before the real milk is produced, it  has nutrients and antibodies  that’s  good for the baby’s overall health. 

Mothers from the beginning of time have always breastfed their babies, there were no artificial  or substitute baby formulas  to give their baby.The mother had no other choice but to do what was instinctively natural to her which was to breastfeed her baby fresh out of the womb.

There are skeptics who  would love  to believe that breastfeeding is unnatural and unnecessary for the mother and child. It use to be a thing for poor mothers , but now mothers  from all socioeconomic backgrounds are partaking of  this  amazing and natural way of feeding their baby.

 I believe more mothers would breastfeed if they would do some research and talk to their doctor about breastfeeding.

EAR CANDLING


Ear Candling  also known as Ear Coning is an alternative, ancient technique that has been around for centuries.  The ear cone is a hollow-tube  made from cotton or linen, coated with beeswax.  The end of the cone, outside of the ear is ignited with fire to withdraw toxins, wax, yeast, and other debris from the inner ear.  The treatment for each ear should  take about 10-15 min. Remember, these are not  regular candles that are purchased at the store or used in the home.

I had it done professionally  and trained to do the technique . I loved the warmth from the smoke entering my ear , it was absolutely amazing and soothing. Afterwards,  my ears felt  clean and refreshed. If you are interested and want more details, you can research, EAR CANDLING OR EAR CONING.
