Lemon essential oil is an aromatic oil used in aromatherapy. With its invigorating and exciting scent, lemon oil is known to possess anti-viral properties as well as relieve stress as such is used in relieving anxiety. It also enhances one’s mood and has a calming effect on the body. To benefit, use lemon essential oil as a diffuser or vaporizer. You can also add a few drops on a handkerchief and inhale. To use lemon oil for deep tissue massage, add a few drops to butters or oils and massage to the skin. You feel your stress melt away. Lemon oil is also known to treat acne and dark spots and while it is not advised to apply directly to the skin, you can add it to carrier oils before applying to the skin. Pls DO NOT INJEST lemon essential oil and do remember not to use it during the day if your skin will be exposed to the sun as it can cause conditions like sunburn due to the fact that lemon oil makes the skin sensitive to ultraviolet light. When used in skincare products for day use, lemon essential oil is accompanied by sunscreen.
Eucalyptus oil does the following:
It serves to relief cough and nasal congestion. To benefit, add a few drops to moderate hot water and steam with your head under a towel. You can also spray it on handkerchiefs to inhale rather than buying an inhaler.
It helps as an allergy support so I usually mix it with peppermint oil and some water to spray my beddings and my rooms as it also purifies the air.
It also functions as insect repellent and you can make a spray with water to sprinkle on your body when you are outdoor.
Other functions include its ability to heal wounds, cold sores, joint pain and to freshen the breathe. To benefit, you can add eucalyptus oil to carrier oils or butters and use to massage into the skin.
To apply eucalyptus oil on the skin, add it to carrier oils rather than applying directly. AND DO NOT DRINK eucalyptus oil rather you can make a mouth wash of 1 drop of oil mixed with water and gargle to freshen your breath, treat gum disease, tooth decay and cold sores.
Peppermint essential oil can be used in so many ways.
1, As an inhaler to free up nasal passage or blockage: add a drop of oil to a tea cup of hot water and inhale the steam. This will will clear blocked nose and also relieve headaches.
2. As a tea to relieve cold symptoms. In a tea cup of warm to moderate hot water, add a teaspoon of honey and a drop of peppermint oil and drink. This tea clears the throat as well.
3. As a massage therapy. Got tired, aching bones? Then add two to three drops into Shea butter or oils and massage into the skin. It’s great for deep tissue massage.
4. As an anti-dandruff and hair growth therapy: apply a few drops to Shea butter or oils and massage unto hair.

Nappy rash is very common in babies and little kids. It is usually caused by dampness or moisture on a child’s skin caused by wet diapers which when in contact with the skin, can cause irritation which is the nappy rash. This is why it is recommended that diapers are changed regularly and not left to be too dense before being changed.
From experience, allergy can also cause rash. For example, both my sons were sensitive to perfumed products like perfumed wipes, diapers or even perfumed powders or soaps and lotions. This is why I switched to natural products for my kids. Using fragrance – free products will limit nappy rash and common rash in babies and kids.
Rash can also be caused by drug reactions so do read drug interactions and side effects before giving such drugs to your kids especially antibiotic. Since rash can be harmless but irritant, you might have to wait till the dosage is exhausted before considering treatment.
While many topical products are out there in beauty stores, I have always relied on fresh aloe Vera gels and even vitamin C tablet to treat rash. This time around, I made a rash gel without the aloe Vera plant for people who do not have access to the plants.
The recipe for this DIY nappy rash cream is:
The aloe Vera gel on its own is perfect but since I am using the packaged one, I added glycerin because it helps to sooth the skin and with the aloe Vera gel, it becomes a double dose of coolant as well as moisturizes the skin and help to soften the skin. Natural aloe Vera has vitamin C and in its absence, I added vitamin C tablet which helps to clear the skin as well. Lavender oil is soothing and calming as well and helps to make the skin condition less irritable. It also has a soft, pleasant fragrance which makes this gel even more appealing.
To make the nappy rash gel is a rather simple process.
And viola, this is what you get:
Give this a try and tell me what you think.
Contrary to belief, harsh skin bleaching products in tubes or other forms do not necessarily clear dark spots like age spots, sunburn or dark spots caused by injury or scars; or even dark spots caused by skin that has been burnt by bleaching products. What these whitening or lightening or bleaching products do is to amplify the damaged areas because while they lighten the rest of the skin that is not covered by dark spots, they are unable to clear the spots but make them even more pronounced.
But why is this happening? This happens because most of these whitening or bleaching agents actually do not go deep within our skin and under our skin to heal the skin from inside out. It is a fact that for long lasting results and for healing to occur, the skin must be healed from the inside out.
This is where oils are different. And how you ask? Because oils are rich in so much nutrients, vitamins and minerals, they are rich in anti-oxidants and Collagen, which helps cell regeneration. Meaning, the oils help the skin to create new cells by getting rid of the old one so that new ones can appear. During the cell regeneration process, you will find the dark, dry outer layers of the dark spots peeling away to reveal newer ones which are brighter and same color as our natural skin. This is why natural oils are superior to skin whitening or bleaching products when it comes to clearing sunburn or dark spots.
I recently developed a blend of natural, healing oils that treat dark spots, sunburns and damaged skin. In this blend amongst a wide collection of oils, you will find carrot seed oil, frankincense oil, rose oil, Jasmine oil, orange oil, lemon oil, coconut oil, castor oil and more. These natural oils not only clear the skin but will give one a brighter, natural complexion.
Nature takes its time, I must say because this is not a quick fix but when we allow the oils to complete its cycle of healing which is cell regeneration, you will be happy you waited.
The Ene Naturals Dark Spots removal oil is now available at our store on this site. Give nature a chance and you will never regret it.
Don't pop that zit because it can be dangerous. Zits wrongly popped lead to blackheads so rather than popping zits, here are a few tips to treating pimples.
1. Pimples are a sign of stress so rather than popping the zit, give your body a well deserved rest.
2. Pimples are a sign of poor nutrition so eat leafy, green vegetables and fruits like oranges that are rich in vitamin C and anti-oxidants that get rid of free radicals like pimples.
3. Pimples can also be caused by poor hygiene so rather than share your makeup tools with other people, wash your beauty tools like sponges and brushes regularly. If possible, use only disposables.
4. Pimples are also caused by hormonal imbalances which is why zits are expected during a woman's monthly period.
So rather than popping that zit, get an orange from your kitchen like I do.
This easy homemade facial
Cleanser recipe for treating pimples is easy and effective. Simply get an orange, squeeze out some juice into a bowl – you don't need more than 1 tablespoonful of orange juice. Soak it in a cotton pad or cotton wool and gently apply on the pimples or the area of skin where pimples are dominant. Allow the orange juice to dry on the pimples for a few minutes and rinse off. Orange is anti-oxidant rich that helps fight pimples and acne as well as brighten the skin. The juice will also help to dry out the pus substance in the zit.
Do try to be patient with the treatment of pimples and refrain from touching them to avoid infecting your skin some more with your non-sanitized fingers.
Tell me, do you have other home remedies for treating pimples that you would like to share?
I have a penchant for wanting to control the sourcing of all natural ingredients used in my natural skincare products. As a natural skincare brand, being sincere through and through in the quality of ingredients I use is very important to me and the reason why my brand is consistently rising at a healthy pace.
In the regard, I went to a turmeric farm to source fresh turmeric myself. I went through the rigors of sorting, cleaning, washing, shredding, drying, milling and packaging just because I wanted to give my clients the best natural products or ingredients that they deserve. The process of making turmeric powder is rigorous but I am happy with the final result.
Turmeric powder is great for the skin, hair and general health. I use turmeric with warm water and honey to treat cough as well as use it in cooking. Turmeric contains anti-inflammatory properties so it helps reduce scarring, wrinkles, acne, rash and other skin issues. It can be used as an exfoliator (scrub), cleanser and mask.
