|Valentine’s Day is soon approaching. For the guys, it’s once again time to dig into your wallets and treat your valentines to an overpriced bunch of roses and chocolates. That’s the standard gift for your valentines, right? Yes, you’re right, every Valentines day, roses and chocolates………. da de da…….. standard and very boring.
If you really want to blow your women away, it’s time to get a little bit more creative and daring with your gift ideas and prepare your lover for a surprise she’ll never forget and something she’s always been longing to receive.
Maybe after all these years of being a robot, your romantic thinking cap is a bit rusty. Let me help you out a little. This is something my boyfriend did for me that really blew me off my feet and here’s how it happened.
|Every time I walk past a massage parlor, I just want to make a pit stop, strip off all my worries and tension, lye down and let the masseur squeeze all of my troubles away. But then I look at my empty wallet and all my maxed out credit cards, I continue walking by wishing….. (Sigh)!
Massages are just divine. Massages improve your muscles and circulation, as well as helping you to feel less stress on your muscles and less stiffness on your joints. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water and my muscles weak. Unless you have the time and the finances to afford such professional luxury treatments, then your only other option is to find a trusting partner to give you what you need.
If you follow these 3 things, I’m confident you and your partner will experience a blissful massage experience at the fraction of the cost.
|I was asked recently by my good friend Elisa the different ways you can apply essential oils and whether different application techniques led to different therapeutic results. In answer to her question, I first needed to find out Elisa’s intended therapeutic goal in order for me to give the correct delivery method.
Broadly speaking, most people use essential oils for the skin, for sinus problems, for house hold purpose, for allergies, for relaxation, colds and flu, or for muscle tension. In Elisa’s case, her goal was to alleviate the painful menstrual cramps and sore back muscles.
|In the previous article, we talked about the fun of homemade natural perfume and the simple steps required to produce your own bottle. Sticking with the topic of homemade personal beauty products, we will in this article teach you the basic craft for making a homemade Organic lip balm.
From summer to winter, lip balms are required all year around to help protect your lips from the dry cold winter months and the harsh summer heat. Unfortunately, a lot of commercial lip balms found in chemist and shops are petroleum based, and this ingredient should be avoided due to its links to cancer, reproductive damage, immune system toxicity, endocrine disruption and neuro-toxicity.
The beauty of making your own lip balm is that you’ll know that it’s free from petroleum jelly, artificial colours, artificial flavouring, preservatives and other questionable ingredients. What you’ll be using in replacement are natural organic ingredients such as beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, honey…… the list is endless.
|Making your own homemade perfume is all about having fun and putting your own creative signature into your work. Don’t expect it to smell like “CK’s Obsession” or “Lancome’s Miracle” or “Channel No 5″. The fragrance that you get from a homemade perfume is much more earthy and natural to your senses. Like all homemade projects, you should carry with you a daring mindset where trial and error is the key. Compared to other homemade beauty products, making perfume has a simple process that only requires a few ingredients and steps for a finished product to be produced. Water, alcohol and essential oils are the three most common ingredients in making home made perfumes.
Once you’ve learnt how to make homemade perfume, you’ve got a really handy tool under your belt that helps you to save money, create special gifts, make you smell attractive, enhance your mood and possible help you make money. Who knows, when you’ve cracked the right formula, you can possibly try to market your very own perfume brand.
|Australian Organic Essential oils and plant extracts are inputs to a range of products including aromatherapy, food flavours, pharmaceutical goods and household goods. They include tea tree oils, citrus oils, spearmint, peppermint, lavender, chamomile, carrot seed, eucalyptus oil….. and many thousands more. Essential oils are exclusively made from botanical matter, so any synthetic fragrance oils derived from toxic coal and tar which are chemical recreations of scents are completely fake, and will never replace the therapeutic effects of the botanical derived essential oils.
Australia’s diverse climate and unique flora provide opportunities for new crop development and agricultural diversification. Increasing consumer interest, and a wide and growing range of applications in commercial industries has led to strong growth in world demand for these commodities. Essential oils have been extracted from over 3000 plants, of which 200 to 300 are commonly traded on world markets.
