Sus­tain­abil­ity Tips

Catron Courier - - Front Page -

Mak­ing you own health prod­ucts can save you money, and avoids harm­ful chem­i­cals. For a de­odor­ant, mix five Tbsp. co­conut oil (an an­tibac­te­rial) four Tbsp. bak­ing soda, (ab­sorbs odors) four Tbsp. corn­starch (ab­sorbs mois­ture) and five drops of tea tree oil (an­other an­tibac­te­rial).

If your fin­ger­nails are yel­low­ing, brush them with whiten­ing tooth­paste to brighten them up.

To re­move sunspots, ap­ply a slice of fresh lemon or lime for 10 to 15 min­utes a day, then rinse. Aloe Vera gel can also be used on your hands and face to heal sun-dam­aged skin.

Ground oat­meal is an­other good tip for great skin. It sooths ir­ri­ta­tion and acts as a mois­tur­izer be­cause of a high level of fat. Grind a tsp. of oat­meal in a blender or food pro­ces­sor and mix with a tsp. lemon juice, and two tsp. plain yoghurt.

Add a half cup of oat­meal to your bath to sooth skin ir­ri­tated by harsh spring and win­ter winds.

For a mois­tur­izer, mix a tsp. each raw honey, ap­ple cider vine­gar and co­conut oil. Rub it in, wait ten min­utes then rinse.

In­stead of buy­ing antacids, try the old-fash­ioned rem­edy of a half tsp. bak­ing soda in a glass of wa­ter. Aloe Vera juice, fen­nel tea, and fresh or can­died gin­ger also sooths the stom­ach.
