Skincare - Face -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Turmeric Mask

I’ve tried this mask many times and I love it. It leaves your skin glowing, hydrated and soft but make sure not to get them in your eyes as it'll extremely burn. Now if you have a fairer skin tone this mask will leave some yellow stains on your face so be careful. Many people have noticed the change of my skin because of this mask.

Hair Treatments -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Organic Neem Oil

I have used essential / carrier oils for many years. I did not expect the strong odour . The odd food like smell ( peanut plus sesame oil ) is very upsetting , but I got used to it over time and after mixing it with a ton of other strong smelling oils. I get the smell on my hair in the morning and it’s not cute . strangely I find it difficult to sleep when using this oil ( same as ylang ylang for me ). I like the fact that this is for acne prone skin without the dryness unlike tea tree oil or lavender oil . I don’t see much amazing impact yet , but it’s a cheap and good oil to try out with all its antiseptic and antioxidant properties . I got it from iherb as a carrier oil .


Skincare - Face -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Spironolactone for Acne

I'm currently in my 6th week of this medication and couldn't be more pleased. For the first time since puberty I have skin that isn't excessively oily. This in itself is a miracle and my skin & scalp look fresh. I'm 28 and have experienced severe cystic acne for over 12 years and no combination of OTC &/or prescribed treatments have ever worked for me. I can't believe I wasn't prescribed this sooner. I'm still in shock that something is actually working to clear my skin. If you have hormonal acne please try this - you won't be sorry.
I have found Spiro online to save $$. If you're curious I just search in Google for this code "GET100SPIR".


Skincare - Face -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Tamanu Oil

True Tamanu Oil is one of those rare, miraculous, "cure all" gifts from nature. It has a natural SPF of approximately 22 blocking both UVA & UVB rays, it works absolute wonders on scars, stretch marks, surface wounds, acne, boils, cysts, diaper rash, psoriasis/eczema, and even slows the aging process. It also penetrates deep enough to be helpful with deep pain and inflammation making it a excellent massage oil.

Here is the catch though, I'm noticing that most of the negative reviewers on the internet describe their Tamanu oil as being "grey" or "lime green." PURE 100% Virgin Tamanu Oil is DARK GREEN. Period. If your oil is not dark green, and it's not working, it's not PURE Tamanu. I would urge you to read the ingredients very carefully before making a purchase. Many great brands out there offer 100% Pure Tamanu Oil that is Virgin/Coldpressed/Organic, but other less ethical brands are quite misleading. The front of the package will appear its only Tamanu however it's actually "Cut" with other oils to decrease manufacturing costs and extend it's shelf life. You're not going to experience the full range of benefits if it's not Pure. Additionally, the other Oils may actually make it a unsuitable treatment for certain conditions! I just wanted to get that information out there because these companies selling low content Tamanu are hurting the reputation of a exceptionally effective and versatile natural remedy.

Anyway, as a Herbalist & Doula in my professional life, and also a mother of four, I have put Tamanu oil to the test many times in a variety of ways and it WORKS, plain and simple. I've seen it save pregnant women from the hassle of stretch marks and conversely, seen it drastically improve existing Stretch marks dozens of times. I've seen it help totally heal Cystic Acne that was antibiotic resistant and assist in fading Acne scars (full disclosure: Tamanu was only PART of the treatment. A blood purifying and skin clearing herbal tea blend I developed was also used), I recommended it for a young child's ganglion cyst and it reduced the size by 80% after approximately 1 week, My own daughter drastically healed a scar to the point her surgeon asked how and what we used. I use it on my face as my only moisturizer! I couldn't possibly list the amount of times I've employed its use with dramatic positive results.

I simply cannot recommend Tamanu oil enough! It should be in every first aid kit and every cosmetic cabinet. Again, just please remember to choose 100% pure virgin Tamanu oil. If YOU choose to cut it with other oils at home for use as a moisturizer or muscle rub or something, that's fine. But you'll need Pure oil for Acne, scarring, stretch marks, skin issues, abrasions, or basically ANY type of wound care.

Hair Color -No Brand (DIY or homemade) -Pure Henna Powder Hair Color

on 4/19/2018 12:51:00 AM

I'm older (62) and I'm about 1/3 to 1/2 grey with medium brown hair .(I had red hair as a young child) . Previously I was using commercial hair dye to cover up the grey but I didn't like the way it dried out and damaged my hair. My Indian son-in-law suggested henna. I've been using henna for about 4 years now and I love the results, it makes my hair soft and shiny, covers the grey and gives my hair a beautiful multilayered auburn tinge (the grey areas are brighter red than the still brown hair).

My procedure for using it is: I mix PURE henna with water and a small amount of orange juice (acid helps the colour bloom and orange juice is gentler than lemon juice) in a stainless steel or glass bowl (it will stain plastic) and let stand for 20-30 minutes to help the colour "bloom". I put on silicon gloves, get into the bathtub naked and rub the henna into my grey roots and apply it along my hair line. I then rub it all over my hair (sometimes I section my hair and use a brush to colour the hair underneath), then cover it with a shower cap and then a toque (beanie for you Americans) as heat helps the colour. I leave it on my head for 4 hours (this long length of time is to completely cover the grey,). (I also use a Qtip to apply it on my eyebrows). I put a red towel (set aside for this purpose) around my neck and my bathrobe and clean out the bathtub (using the shower attachment). I then relax for 4 hours. When time comes to remove the henna, I put on clean silicon gloves, get back into the bathtub, remove the caps and rinse my hair and use condition to remove the henna. I then clean the bathtub and let my hair dry naturally.

The colour will be more vivid the first day or two and then it oxidizes. I buy my henna in South Asian/Indian grocers. It is VERY IMPORTANT to buy PURE henna (NO other ingredients), NOT compound henna which contains harsh chemicals (Indian grocers sell both kinds). If you use compound henna over hair that has been chemically dyed, you will fry your hair. Pure henna only comes in red, if you want to dye your hair another colour, it isn't for you. Indian grocers are the best and cheapest place to find pure henna. The brand I prefer is Jamilla (if I can get it, it comes from Yemen) as is a fine powder and easier to remove. The Colora brand (not sold in Indian grocers) is OK but an even muddier consistency (however you can get different colours than red, it uses all natural ingredients like indigo. However, the other colours in Colora henna will fade over time and your hair will look redder.) IMHO, LUSH henna is ridiculously overpriced, not pure henna and harder to use (you have to grate the blocks) so I've stayed away from it.

PROS: softens hair, does not dry out or damage hair, makes it shiny, is good for your hair ,gives light to medium brunettes a lovely autumn shade to your hair. It doesn't fade like commercial dyes (it is a translucent coating on your hair) although over time, your roots will grow out. It has a earthy scent (much better than the ammonia in some hair dyes.) Cheaper than commercial hair dyes if you buy it in an Indian grocery store.

CONS:Very messy! Henna stains so wear gloves, have a towel, shower cap and beanie/toque set aside for this purpose. I even have a bathmat I only use for henna colouring sessions. Be prepared to clean your bathtub twice as some will end up in the tub.. Be careful around surfaces (wipe up immediately to avoid permanent stains.) If you want to cover gray, it takes a long time. It takes some time to fully rinse out and you need conditioner to assist this process. (The Colora henna brand is harder to rinse out than Jamilla or others in the Indian grocery stores.) Apparently there are counterfeit imitations of Jamilla out there, although I've never had any issues. Not much choice of colour - if red or auburn doesn't suit you, henna is not for you. It can be harder to predict the exact shade you will get as it depends on the colour of your hair. (Blondes will get brighter hair, brunettes more auburn and people with darker hair may not see a colour difference at all - many Indians with darker hair use henna as a conditioning treatment rather than dye for this reason.) Henna is permanent, if you dislike the colour, you will have to wait for it to grow out, get a hair cut.
