A few months back I noticed the loveHemp products in holland and barret and eventually decided on trying the orange flavoured CBD oil spray with coconut oil, now before this I just had normal unflavoured CBD oils, as I’m okay with the taste ( some people cant stand the taste) The orange flavour wasn’t really that powerful but it really did mask the original taste of pure cbd! Personally I would really love a strawberry flavour or candy ! The tube is very pretty, decorated with cannabis leaves and the product information, what I didn’t notice until later on was that it says at the bottom of the tube it contains MCT oil as well as organic coconut oil. I was a bit confused about what MCT actually is and had to do some googling, ahaha
The coconut oil blend attracted me as I was thinking along the lines of throat health because of COVID, coconut oil has antimicrobial properties that help in fighting against bacteria, fungi, and several other seasonal viruses. Oil pulling, which involves swishing coconut oil in your mouth like mouthwash, may kill some of the harmful bacteria in the mouth. It is also great for your hair skin and nails, so this product is a win-win, I would recommend this product to people who are CBD oil beginners as its not as strong as some other products and also doesn’t have the strong traditional taste of CBD. For me this product helps me to be less anxious and more calm, at night it will help you to go to sleep but if you take a few drops in the daytime I feel it helped me concentrate while I was studying.
Most commercial liquid shampoos contain SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) and synthetic silicones to smooth the hair. These chemicals can themselves build up in the hair. They can also strip the hair of its natural protective oils and in fact cause an over production of oil by the scalp as it tries to compensate. When we stop using harsh shampoos, our hair and scalp are not being stripped of their natural oils. Our hair may now take some time to re-balance its oil production. This can take place from a few days to a few weeks.
It is my personal belief that shampoo & conditioner bars are the way forward in the haircare industry, once customers become more informed about what they put on their hair & bodies on a regular basis we will see a massive switch to more organic products. The amount of unnecessary plastic bottles used for shampoo and conditioner products is unbelievable. We don’t need to use that much plastic when we can have solid bars that need no plastic at all ! I have created my own line of organic shampoo and conditioner bars that come in biodegradable boxes. Click here to take a look at my range 🙂
No Worries About TSA Limits
A traveller’s nightmare is having airport security raid your bag, asking if you’re over the liquid limit, or worse, opening your suitcase after a flight and finding out that your shampoo bottles have leaked all over your favourite outfit. Shampoo bars eliminate both scenarios and will make your case smell good, without destroying your clothes.
Most shampoos are 80-percent water and conditioners can be even more—up to 95-percent water. Why pay for water when you can add it in yourself? Shampoo bars are mega concentrated and generally last longer than bottled versions. On average, a shampoo bar will outlast two to three bottles of liquid shampoo, meaning you save money and extra trips to the store.
Many brands that produce shampoo bars are striving to protect the oceans, wildlife, and ecosystems that are being affected by the mass production of chemical-laden products in the beauty industry. Many traditional bottled shampoos are filled with preservatives and chemicals that can strip hair of its natural oils and leave your scalp feeling dry. Oftentimes, these chemicals are not found in shampoo bars. Many bars contain essential oils and natural ingredients and are cruelty free. Another plus? Many shampoo bars are free of palm oil, an ingredient linked to deforestation and habitat degradation.
Ancient Egypt, one of the most fascinating civilisations to ever have existed. The beautiful artwork and statues that are still found standing today or in museums are utterly amazing. The woman of ancient Egypt are depicted with beautiful faces and hair and are known to have toke pride in their appearance. I have done a bit of research for this post and found out that ancient Egyptian woman may just be the inventors of hair extensions!
More on hair extensions and wigs later on in the post… lets start with the obvious one first! EYELINER! what in the world are male and females depicted with all that eyeliner on their eyes on artwork/statues even on the sarcophagus. What are they doing that for ?
Egyptians mostly used galena (more commonly known as kohl) and malachite powder (a green mineral) for eye makeup. Galena was a black paint that shielded eyes from the sun, while malachite powder made the eyes appear larger and protected those who wore it. Both were applied using ivory, wood, or sticks made of metal.
Kohl was found to repel insects and flies and also protect the eyes from the sun, which is handy if you live in ancient Egypt. So looking pretty wasn’t the only purpose of ancient Egyptian makeup! Also the makeup was worn by men and woman and even children from rich and poor backgrounds although the richer had more makeup available to them and also finer boxes and tools to apply it with. Apparently some richer ladies had bejewelled boxes and applicator sticks just for their beauty routine.
Mascara was also used in ancient Egypt applied with ivory or bone made from kohl mixed with honey, water and animal fats to create a paste that would make the lashes darker and more defined.
Skin exfoliation was big in ancient Egypt with ladies using ground coffee powder to rub on their skin and also dead sea salts, it is said Cleopatra would travel to the dead sea just for her skincare routine.
Big brows were a trend back then just like lamination brows now only ancient Egypt was way ahead of their time. They would use burnt ground up almonds as an eyebrow pencil to fill up the brows and darken them. Almonds contain vitamin e which is fantastic for hair growth, so you basically have an all natural eyebrow pencil that is also great for your eyebrows! genius.
Ancient soap. Yes the Egyptians were BIG on personal hygiene and washing was very important part of the self care routine. Apparently they would use natural clays to wash mixed with olive oil so they were cleansed and nourished at the same time. Wow we need to go back to this in 2020 !
Better you magnesium oil is a saturated solution of zechstein magnesium chloride, one of the most soluble of all magnesium compounds. Absorption commences immediate when massaged into the skin, helping promote natural relaxation.
I think this 100ml body spray is a top quality product, the better you brand is one of my favourite brands and all their products are amazing and effective. My experience with this magnesium spray has been good, I felt a bit of tingling after I apply then my muscles definitely feel less painful and more relaxed. Too much magnesium can give you side effects, so I only use this spray once a week on my legs after workouts. I would recommend this product to my readers looking for a magnesium spray and especially if you have been diagnosed with magnesium deficiency .
