Using Pomegranate Seed Oil to Prevent Feminine Dryness and Vulvodynia May 31 2015

Dealing with the unspoken pains of feminine dryness and vaginal atrophy can feel like a perpetual losing battle.  Vaginal atrophy commonly affects postmenopausal women, but females in their twenties can also experience such suffering.  Numerous possible causes of chronic pelvic discomfort include immunology, genetics, radiation therapy, and diet.  While there are many potential treatments for vulvodynia, a regimen that includes topical and intravaginal application of pomegranate seed oil can help alleviate the pain of vaginal dryness.  Finding the right solution to combat vulvodynia will take time, but with a little patience and experimentation, you can find a specialized remedy to help you live more comfortably.  

Here are a few ways to help prevent and minimize the discomfort associated with female dryness and vulvodynia:

  1. Use a gentle body wash or soap when bathing.
    Avoid soaps and cleansers made with harsh, drying ingredients such as sodium laurel sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate. While these ingredients can get you "squeaky clean," they can also strip your body of its natural oil and moisturizing properties. Also, avoid synthetically scented soaps. Avoid products with the words "fragrance" or "parfum" in their ingredients list.
  2. Gently pat dry or dab dry the vulvar area after every shower.
    Rubbing your body with a towel can create unwanted friction and pain.
  3. Always moisturize the vaginal area with a plant-based regenerative, anti-inflammatory oil such as pomegranate seed oil immediately after bathing and drying.
    The natural oil will help seal in moisture and form a protective barrier over sensitive parts.

As the physical makeup of every individual is unique, consult with a physician to explore the right treatment for your vaginal dryness and vulvodynia.

Topical and intravaginal application of pomegranate seed oil can help alleviate the pain associated with vaginal dryness.

Using Face Oils to Prevent Clogged Pores April 13 2015

Clogged pores are awful.  When you're feeling like the most powerful person in the world, one clearly visible clogged pore can fully deplete your confidence in an instant.  From the time we were teenagers, we have fought painful, annoying battles against clogged pores and the unsightly pimples associated with them.  Nothing seemed to work.  We took reactive approaches such as using harsh face scrubs and alcohol-based toners that stripped the skin of its natural, beneficial oils, when our approach should have been preventive.  The good news is it isn't too late to achieve a naturally clearer complexion to help boost your confidence.  Along with adopting healthy eating habits and proper exercise, regularly applying natural plant-based oils, such as rosehip seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, camellia oil, and argan oil, can help minimize clogged pores.  Let's take a look at three reasons why using face oils is a better, simpler approach to clear skin versus conventional reactive methods.

Using Face Oils to Prevent Clogged Pores

  1. Face Oils Fight Fire with Fire
    Using a natural plant-based oil as a moisturizer helps break down hardening sebum (the natural oil your skin produces) in your pores.  Hardened sebum traps dirt,debris, and dead skin, which can lead to blackheads, whiteheads, and severe acne.  Regular use of natural face oils helps to keep sebum in a liquid state and free of debris. 

  2. Face Oils Simplify your Skin Care Routine
    By adopting face oils as your go-to moisturizers, you can eliminate ineffective frivolous beauty items in your beauty cabinet.  It's time to get rid of the synthetic pore-clogging moisturizers, abrasive scrubs, and drying alcohol-based skin toners.

  3. Fragrance-free Face Oils are Less Likely to Irritate
    Beauty products with added synthetic fragrances can cause breakouts in people with sensitive skin.  To minimize skin irritation, avoid beauty products that contain "fragrance" or "parfum" in their ingredients list.

When applied regularly, all-natural plant-based face oils can dramatically improve your skin's complexion and tone.  It's easy to prevent clogged pores.  All it takes is a few drops of face oil each day - once in the morning and once before going to bed.


    DIY Eczema Body Oil Recipe March 03 2015


    Dealing with eczema can be a hopelessly frustrating experience if you've tried practically every solution imaginable.  Countless potential remedies exist, but which ones should you experiment with?  Steroids can be effective treatments, but do you want to deal with their associated side effects?  Over-the-counter creams may provide temporary relief, but they're thick and difficult for the skin to absorb.  We have come up with what we hope is your key to eczema relief - it's a simple, natural recipe that only requires four nourishing ingredients: Kukui Oil, Avocado OilSweet Almond Oil, and Tamanu Oil.  This unique blend can instantly moisturize, calm inflammation, and help the skin heal - all so you can feel comfortably confident quicker.  While different bodies may require different solutions, we love the potential of this particular recipe to provide long-term relief to your exasperating eczema troubles.  Please note: do not use this blend if you suffer from nut allergies.

    What you'll need:
    1-1/2 oz  Kukui Oil
    1 teaspoon Tamanu Oil

    Directions:
    Add Kukui Oil, Avocado OilSweet Almond Oil, and Tamanu Oil to the four ounce bottle. Close bottle cap tightly.  Gently roll the bottle between your palms for approximately five to ten seconds.  Rub a few drops of the oil blend between your palms and fingertips and generously apply to areas affected by eczema.  Repeat whenever your skin needs healing nourishment.  Remember to moisturize frequently, especially after showering and bathing.   Avoid using harsh soaps and body washes.  Store your custom oil blend in a cool dry area, out of direct sunlight.

      With so many brands of baby oil available to consumers these days, it's hard to figure out which ones are actually safe to use on your baby's delicate skin.

      Kukui Oil: A Natural Way to Style Hair and Nourish the Scalp April 26 2014

      Kukui oil is a great natural way to style hair while nourishing the scalp.
      While kukui nut oil has numerous benefits for the skin, its uses on the hair and scalp are often overlooked.  This luxurious natural oil is light enough to use on the hair without making it look or feel greasy.  Kukui oil is able to tame unruly hair while feeding the scalp antioxidants and fatty acids.  The key to successfully using kukui oil on the hair is managing the amount you use per application.  We recommend rubbing a dime-sized amount between the palms and fingertips, then lightly run your fingers through the hair until you achieve your desired look.  It might take a few tries to get that naturally beautiful look you're going for, but the end result will be worth it once you perfect your method.

      5 Ways to Use Rosehip Seed Oil August 13 2013



      For centuries, people in Chile have taken advantage of the beauty benefits of using rosehip seed oil, otherwise known as rosa mosqueta oil.  Fortunately, word has spread and the rest of the world is catching on to the wonders of this all natural product.  Primarily sourced from wild roses in Chile, rosehip seed oil is light and penetrates quickly into the skin for immediate hydration.  Naturally high levels of vitamin C, retinol, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are what make rosehip seed oil an effective anti-aging moisturizer, especially for sensitive skin.  Here are five easy ways you can use rosehip seed oil to help you feel young, glowing, and confident:

      1. Evening Face Serum
      Rosehip seed oil is a great source of retinoic acid, which studies show minimize the appearance of fine lines and premature aging skin.  When routinely applied as a nighttime face serum, rosehip seed oil can help you wake up glowing.

      2. Daily Skin Moisturizer
      Whether used alone or as a complement to your daytime SPF cream or lotion, rosehip seed oil properly nourishes your skin to help you achieve a youthful, dewy complexion. 

      3. Scar Minimizer / Stretch Mark Prevention
      When regularly applied to closed healing wounds, rosehip seed oil helps minimize the look of unsightly scars.  You can also use rosehip seed oil on areas prone to stretch marks.  Apply the oil after every wash and at the first sign of itchiness to keep skin smooth.

      4. Cuticle Softener
      Just a drop or two of rosehip seed oil will keep cuticles on both hands looking and feeling exquisite.  Apply after every hand wash to maintain softness.

      5. Scalp Nourisher

      Shampoos and conditioners often contribute to dry and itchy scalp.  To counter the drying effects of these hair products, we recommend occasionally using a few drops of rosehip seed oil on the scalp at night two hours before going to bed.

      Argan Summer Balm Recipe May 29 2013



      One downside to the summer heat is its melting effect on balms and salves.  Using just four ingredients, you'll be able to make an all-natural salve that will better withstand heat.  This highly nourishing summer balm soothes lips and sunburned skin, and softens cuticles and rough, dry skin.

      Pomegranate Seed Oil: A Beneficial Ingredient for Your Homemade Creams, Lotions, and Serums May 08 2013 2 Comments

        

      While pomegranates are widely hailed by health practitioners, pomegranate seed oil is still relatively obscure to the general public.  Pomegranate seed oil is naturally high in antioxidants as well as fatty acids, including the mighty punicic acid, to help combat aging.  The oil is of medium weight, which makes it especially ideal for those with very dry skin.  People with oily and combination complexions can also benefit from pomegranate seed oil by diluting it with lighter oils such as rosehip seed oil, apricot kernel oil, and grapeseed oil.  Figuring out the proper ratio of pomegranate seed oil in your homemade beauty product recipes requires some experimenting depending on your skin type.  The drier your skin, the higher the pomegranate seed oil ratio your beauty concoction will require.  Try incorporating this nutrient-rich natural beauty oil into your homemade serum recipes for an anti-aging boost.
