5 Ways to Incorporate Honey For Beauty

Honey.  The term of endearment often said between couples and families because of its sweetness has many benefits outside of the lovey-dovey feeling it can give to someone.  This natural amber-colored sweetener has a chemical makeup that provides numerous skin healing and soothing benefits.  Here are the top 5 ways you can easily incorporate honey into your skin care regimen.

  1.   Wash Your Face with Honey!

Honey naturally moisturizes the skin by taking moisture from the air and absorbing it into the skin.  It helps your skin stay smooth and soft for several hours.  Simply apply one teaspoon of raw honey after cleaning your dry skin.  Massage, then leave on the skin for 10 minutes.  Cleanse the honey off your face with warm water.

  1.  Exfoliate with Honey!

Naturally occurring enzymes and antioxidants that are found in raw honey.  To create a radiant and glowing appearance, mix two teaspoons of honey with one teaspoon of baking soda.  Apply the honey paste to your skin and rub onto your skin in circular motions.  Wash and enjoy!

  1.  Bath with Honey!

Adding 2 cups of raw honey to running bath water will create a spa inspired treatment for your skin.  Raw honey will help to balance the skin back to its soft and healthy appearance by soaking in the honey bath for 15 minutes.  For an added boost of luxury, add a bath fizzy after the 15-minute soak for a final 15-minute soak.

  1. Clear Acne with Honey!

Honey absorbs impurities from the pores of the skin.  It is also a natural antiseptic and will soothe and heal the skin.  Apply raw honey direct to the skin and leave it on for 30 minutes.  Wash off with lukewarm water and gently dry the face.

  1.  Healthy Hair with Honey!

Raw honey is great for dry, damaged, dull-looking hair.  It helps to retain moisture in the hair and will help rid dry flakes and itchiness on the scalp.  Create your own mask at home by following the recipe below:

Raw Honey Hair Mask

2 T. RAW HONEY

3 T. HONEY ALMOND BODY OIL  (Order at www.daisybluenaturals.com)

1 T. LEMON JUICE

1.  Heat together all of the above ingredients.  Mix well.

2.  Apply mixture to the scalp and hair while it is still warm.

3.  Leave on for 30 minutes.  Rinse and wash as usual.

How to Truly Get Lucky this March

DB-Mar-17-web-lucky

In March, it’s not uncommon to hear about luck and, of course, the luck of the Irish. Here at Daisy Blue Naturals, we think there are better ways to get lucky than finding four-leaf clovers.

One way to truly get lucky “Daisy Blue Style” is to learn simple and painless ways to detox your body from harmful chemicals. Let’s face it, few things feel luckier than good health.

You can increase the probability of successfully detoxing your body when you make painless changes, changes that do not make you feel like you are suffering or missing out on something you enjoy. But is it even possible to detox your body without giving up some of your favorite things?detox

Fortunately, it is, and choosing a painless way to detox leads to easy implementation and commitment and therefore, success. Choosing a radical detox diet might produce radical results, but the road to success probably will not feel easy. Indeed, you may give in a day or two after getting started.

The secret to successfully detoxing your body is to set yourself up for success! Implement three to five truly painless ways to detox.

You Just Got Lucky!

Yes, you read that correctly. You just got lucky! You see, because we had such great feedback from our 5 Painless Ways to Detox Spa Experience in the month of January, we are now offering that presentation all year long.  Painless Ways to Detox Handout with Kits_5

If you like the idea of feeling healthier by detoxing and shedding a few pounds without suffering, you can schedule this engaging and informational presentation for yourself and a few friends. Many of the attendees let our Consultants know how much they appreciated the short format and the useful content.

You Just Got Luckier!

Kick That Cold, Naturally!

 

Kick that Cold, naturally!

‘Tis the season for colds and flu & we’ve got you covered at Daisy Blue.  (No worries, I won’t be switching from chemistry to poetry anytime soon)!

According to Mayo Clinic, symptoms of a common cold usually appear one to three days after exposure to the cold-causing virus.  Unless symptoms worsen, it is recommended to let the virus run its course.

Although you need to let the cold and flu viruses run their course you can help speed up your healing time by doing these simple steps:

  1.  Stay hydrated.  Double your water intake during this time.
  2. Drink warm fluids.  (Find a healing paleo chicken soup recipe that will help boost your immune system shared below).
  3. Get 8 hours, minimum, of sleep every night.  This is the time to take it easy.
  4. Cut dairy & processed foods.
  5. Use Daisy Blue Comfort Oil and Comfort Crystals to ease discomfort & allow for natural healing.

Why Comfort?

Let’s take a look at what makes our Comfort Oil & our Comfort Crystals work and how you can best use these two products in your healing.

The essential oil blend in Comfort, developed by Daisy Blue Naturals, plays a role in its effectiveness.  By using the following essential oils at just the right concentration for each created a holistic healing powerhouse.   What makes each of these essential oils right for Comfort?

EUCALYPTUS:  Eucalyptol is what gives this oil its therapeutic benefits.  It is the ingredient found in most cough drops and mouthwashes.  It controls mucous production in the body and is an effective treatment for the common cold.

SWEET ORANGE:  Anti-inflammatory and aids in respiratory infections, indigestion, muscle soreness, and is calming.

PEPPERMINT:  Soothes digestion & aids in reducing nausea, headaches, muscle aches, infections, and reduces fever.

LAVENDER:  Helps with respiratory, circulatory, and muscular conditions.  Lavender is very relaxing as well, and will help with insomnia, nausea, and headaches.

All four of these essential oils have high infection-fighting attributes as well.  The natural constituent, Camphor, is also present in our Comfort Oil.

Let’s take a comparative ingredient view of our Comfort Oil vs. Vicks Vapor Rub

VICKS VAPOR RUB contains 3 ingredients we say ‘stay away’ from.

  • Man-made Camphor from turpentine oil.
  • Petrolatum – from gasoline.
  • Fragrance – synthetic perfume.

As a comparison, our Comfort Oil contains the following 100% natural ingredients:

Organic Soya Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, Eucalyptus, Camphor, Peppermint, Lavender, & Sweet Orange Essential Oils, Vitamin E, and Rosemary Oil Extract. Cruelty Free, *Gluten-Free* 100% Natural *Phosphate & Sulfate Free *Synthetic Fragrance Free.

Education is the key to making an informed decision and Daisy Blue is here to help you along the way!
