It’s the time of year when everything is starting to cool down and the dramatic changes in temperatures can cause our nails to get dry and brittle and even split.
Try this all natural recipe to keep your nails healthy and strong all year around.
2 eggs yolks
1 teaspoon of olive or avocado oil
Soak nails for 5-10 mins twice a week.
The biotin in the egg yolk and the triglycerides in the olive oil penetrate the nail bed and work to nourish and strengthen nails.
We’ve all had those days where we wake up, look in the mirror and than try to remember the train that apparently ran us over the night before. Here is a quick fix for reducing redness and puffiness to get you looking glam-tastic again.
* Fill a big bowl with ice cubes and put some aloe juice in it.- You can use fresh aloe or aloe juice you buy at the health food store.
* Leave it for 5 to 10 minutes until it gets really nice and cold.
* Soak a face cloth in it and lay it over your face.
It instantly reduces inflammation taking away any puffiness or swollen look.
*For an added spa feel- cut holes in one of your face clothes and place slices of cucumbers over your eyes.
It’s as simple that!!

Summer breakouts are the worst but with a couple fresh basil leaves you can have your skin clear and glowing within days. Add a handful of basil leaves to 1 cup of boiling water, let it simmer for 10 minutes and let cool. Use a cotton ball to dab the liquid onto the problem area and rinse after 10 minutes. There is oil in basil called Eugenol and it has been shown to kill acne-causing bacteria.
When you don’t have time for a trim or you’ve been “O.D.ing”with your flat iron try this quick fix for split ends.
Whisk 1 egg yolk, 2 Tbs. of Olive oil and 1 Tbs. of Honey, apply to damp hair, wrap either in a towel or shower cap and leave in for 3o minutes. The honey and olive oil will moisturize and the egg’s lecithin will “seal” the ends.
You’ll be amazed at the results. All for under $1.00 with no chemicals required.
Thanks to Terri from Healings for Body and Soul for this super yummy (and healthy) recipe.
You cook an onion, as much garlic as you like, 1 cup of cubed carrots with ¼ tsp each cinnamon, cumin, coriander, cayenne. When the carrots and onions are soft add 3cups cauliflower, 1 diced yellow pepper, 1 small diced zucchini and 1 cup chickpeas. Add in 1 cup tomato sauce, salt & pepper and 2 tbsp lemon juice. Says you can add 1 tbsp of peanut butter too. Mix that all together and cook 20 mins. Let it cool for a bit after it’s cooked.
For the crust, pulse (with either blender or food processor) 1 cup chickpeas with ¾ cups cold butter, 3tbsp cold water and 1 ½ cups flour, ½ tsp cumin and tumeric. Pulse until well mixed. Knead 2 mins (you may need to add more flour as you go if it’s too sticky) then divide the dough in half and roll out a bottom crust and top crust for a 9-inch pie plate. Use the deepest dish you have because the filling will pile up high.
Preheat oven to 400. Put the bottom crust into the pie plate and add the filling then put the top crust on and pinch the edges together. Brush the top of the pie with a bit of melted butter. Bake for 45 mins.
