Beauty & Health Oils

Aug 17, 2007
I believe in natural home remedies more than some of the traditional scientific cures when possible. I believe natural products can do wonders for your health and beauty.

Ailments can be treated with natural methods to resolve physical and emotional issues in many cases rather than with medication. These are alternatives that can be used for different kinds of treatments and conditions.

Some of the alternatives to prescriptions can be exercise, dance, yoga, massage, essential oils, etc.

Essential oils have been used in the world for centuries as remedies for many different health issues and they are believed to work well with human nature because they are used in their natural state therefore having a natural condition as the common basis for great results. They are easily absorbed by the skin.

Accordingly some of the studied strong properties are fighting bacteria, fungi, virus, etc. and repelling insects and other species. Described below are some of the benefits of using essential oils:

- Common uses for relaxation are lavender, ylang ylang, rose, geranium, sandalwood.
- For mood changes try sage, fennel, jasmine or lavender.
- To focus: eucalyptus, basil, peppermint.For pain, sorrow: lavender, sage, eucalyptus, juniper.
- Feet corns: one drop each of lemon, oregano, tangerine & myrrh oil.
- Inhale eucalyptus or peppermint oil for stuffy sinuses.
- To help hair growth use 4 to 6 drops of rosemary, ylang ylang, cedarwood and clary sage in shampoo.
- For dandruff use 5 drops of lemon oil, one drop of rosemary or sage, and one drop of lavender oil all mixed in a quart of water.

A lot of information is available on the Internet, companies that sell these oils and books on how to use them so that these alternative methods can be really useful as treatments and beauty products.

Coconut oil has excellent properties and it does not turn into fat in the body unlike other oils like soy or corn. Coconut oil contains an easy fuel that the body burns without converting it into fat called medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). This fuel (MCT) is more easily absorbed and converted to energy quicker, while most other cooking oils and fats contain long-chain triglycerides (LCT) which are usually stored as fat.

For centuries large amounts of coconut have been produced and consumed as food and oil every day in the tropics. The amount of oil consumed in their diet does not increase their weight but on the contrary helps them to be healthy and lean. When they utilize the other widely used common oils they gain weight and other conditions that result from obesity and are challenges in modern everyday life.

Animals fed with coconut oil become lean. This has also been a known fact for people who are in the animal feed business for a long time. When domestic animals are given common vegetable oils, they increase their weight and at the same time produce fatty meat.

Coconut oil is one of the best oils you can directly use on your skin and hair, healing and restoring skin to a younger appearance. It has also been known to give temporary relief to skin problems like rashes, help with people who suffer from yeast infections in the skin, recover slow thyroids by reviving production of extra thyroid hormones, as well as many other skin problems.

Coconut oil softens and smooths your skin, has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from free severe damage and is an excellent massage oil too. It also helps the body absorb other nutrients like Vitamin E more effectively. It is considered one of the best oils for your health.
