Discover OLIO the food sharing app that is making the world a better place πŸŒŽβœ…πŸ’–πŸŒŒ

Recently I have been looking for ways to reduce my waste and also give away unwanted items, I’m already a member of a few frecycle clubs and online free cycle websites. I’d never thought about one dedicated to food waste. When I came across OLIO on Google play store I just knew this was one of the best apps to be created in the last few years. It’s so easy to use and you never have to throw away unused goods again !

OLIO is a free app (mobile & web) that connects neighbours with each other and volunteers with local businesses, so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. If you love food, hate waste, care about the environment or want to connect with your community, OLIO is for you.

Ultimately, the mission is to unlock the value of food that is wasted in the home and local community. The way the app works is simple. Users snap a photo of their spare and add it to the app. Neighbours who live nearby receive customised alerts and can request anything that takes their fancy. All items are offered for free.

Food shared could be food nearing its sell-by date from local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from the local baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you goaway, move home or go on a diet. You can also share non-food items such as furniture, clothes, toys, household and beauty products.

Food waste is a major issue, and not just for the supermarkets. Globally, a third of all food produced is wasted, and in the UK, households account for half of all waste-binning over Β£15bn of edible food, costing families Β£800 per year (ref). Food waste is also costly for local stores and councils and ranks as one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

OLIO has been used in over 50 countries and over 1.8million items have been successfully shared between neighbours. That’s the equivalent of preventing 1,564 CO2emissions from entering the atmosphere and eliminating 4,692,637car miles from the road.

OLIO also has a flourishing volunteer network-over 36,000 people have reached out to the organisation requesting to become volunteers, to promote food sharing locally and rescue and redistribute food in their communities via OLIO!

I’m a massive fan of detox baths and usually combine it with my beauty routine, I will put on a face mask and hair conditioning mask while I’m in my bath. Lately I was in a herbalists shop to get some more epsom & vitamins and a nice assistant recommended magnesium flakes. Never have I ever used them before, she explained it was a muscle relaxant and it can be very powerful.

When I had my bath with the magnesium flakes my muscles were so relaxed, a bit to relaxed! It was a nice feeling and now I love having a magnesium bath now and then. I also felt so relaxed and sleepy when I come out the bath which is great! Magnesium has other benefits too like anti aging and helping with skin conditions.

Discovering the burbur detox πŸ˜―πŸ’–βœ…

A while ago I heard about the burbur detox while I was in a herbalists shop, I couldn’t believe that one plant could do so much good for the human body. I listened to the lady speaking about the burbur product and knew I needed to look itΒ  all up online once I got home. Sure enough it turned out that it was a pretty popularΒ  go to detox product for people with Lyme disease, kidney issues and other disorders. Apparently it also removed heavy metals from the body!

Burbur DetoxΒ is made from an extract produced from the leaves ofΒ Desmodium molliculum, a genus of the flowering plant family Fabaceae, a perennial that has been found and harvested in areas of Peru as high as 3,500 meters above sea level.Β BurburΒ leaf extract has been traditionally used for its body cleansing properties including the detoxification of the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and the ground matrix.

Also I found out that it can kill tumour cells and a whole host of other amazing stuff ! So I’m completely sold it doesn’t hurt to try right ? A small bottle was around Β£15 pound to buy but it seemed worth it. I haven’t started my burbur detox yet but I hope to blog about the results in a future post, if anyone else has done this detox please let me know what your results were ?

All you do is put 10 to 20 drops in water and drink it and repeat it a few times a day and continue for a few months, dose is depending on how much toxicity you have. A lot of reviews online are really positive and I can’t wait to get started πŸ˜‰

Follow this advice below if you want to reverse our already greying hair or prevent grey hair from occurring.

Eat iron rich foods, Spinach, kidney beans, potatoes, lentils, raisins.

Eat copoer rich foods ! Copper is needed for certain essential enzymes, including tyrosinase, which is crucial for the production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin and hair its color. The 2012 study in “Biological Trace Element Research” also found a significant link between low copper levels and prematurely gray hair.
