Goodness of Olive Oil



Cuticles and nails: 
If your cuticles are ragged and your nails are brittle, soak your nails in a cup of olive oil.

Feet:
Before you go to bed, smear olive oil on your feet, put on socks, and you’ll wake up in the morning with the softest feet ever.

Lips: 
Soothe your dry, chapped lips, by dabbing on a little olive oil.

Hair:
Massage olive oil on your scalp and hair. Cover your hair with a shower or bathing cap and leave on for about 30 minutes. 

Shampoo:
Olive oil helps repair split ends, heals dandruff, and makes your hair silky, and lustrous. Put a few drops on your hair when it’s dry to eliminate the frizz.

Skin:
Rub olive oil on your hands to soften and moisturize. It’s rich in squareness, a natural organic compound and emollient that penetrates the skin, and won’t leave a greasy film on it.

Bath:
Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to your bath to soothe your skin.

Makeup remover:
Use a little olive oil on a Q-tip to take your makeup off. It’s as good as any drugstore brand.

Look for olive oil in lip balms, shampoo, hand lotion and soaps – and always use the purest extra virgin olive oil, which is the least processed,and gets its oil from the first pressing of olives.
Use extra virgin olive oil not only internally for your inner health, but externally for your outer beauty as well.

Recently, Malaysia weather is very hot and occurrence of dandruff  is increasing.
I need to wash my hair frequently which is not healthy and doesn't improve my issue.
So, I tried a new method to conditioner my hair and the result is remarkable.
This is a different type of lime, which is easily obtain in Malaysia, not sure in other country.

Stir it well.
Apply on scalp and leave it for 30 minutes.
Do not cover your head with cloth or shower cap.
If you have a long hair, make a simple bun will do.

Benefits of Ginger

 
Fighting Off Colds and Flu
Wheezing, coughing, and a runny and clogged nose are common respiratory symptoms during the winter months. Ginger can help ease these symptoms by acting as a decongestant to release phlegm. Ginger is also effective in helping to relieve asthma symptoms. The volatile oils and vitamins in ginger provide antiviral properties that help in the prevention and fast recovery from colds, sore throat, sinusitis and flu.
The University of Maryland Medical Center states that to treat cold and flu symptoms in adults, steep 2 tbsp. of freshly shredded or chopped ginger root in hot water, and drink two to three times a day.
Combating Stomach Discomfort
Gingers healing properties come from its volatile oils (gingerols and shogaols), which are also responsible for it’s pungent taste. The oils cause more digestive enzymes to be produced which helps with the whole digestion process and neutralizes the acids that can cause nausea,food poisoning ,cramps and even diarrhea. It also improves food absorption which helps prevent/relieve stomach aches and eliminates bloating due to excessive gas.
Relieving Cramps, Morning Sickness and Motion Sickness
Ginger is just as effective as vitamin B6 has demonstrated a success rate of 75 percent in curing morning sickness and stomach flu. It also relieves migraines and dizziness, and drinking ginger tea can relieve menstrual cramps. If you are a woman suffering from menstrual cramps, try placing a hot towel drenched in ginger tea over the pelvic area to relieve pain and relax the muscles. Drinking a cup of ginger tea can also provide a soothing effect. In Chinese medicine, ginger tea with brown sugar is used in the treatment of menstrual cramps.
To keep from being nauseous during a trip, drink a cup of ginger tea before setting off on your travels.
Reducing Pain and Inflammation
Ginger is an extremely potent analgesic, acting as an all-natural painkiller without the harmful side effects. It also contains potent anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger tea can ease inflammation of the joints, which is commonly referred to as rheumatoid arthritis. It is also effective in alleviating tired, sore muscles and joints.A warm ginger tea soak can lessen swelling and puffiness, or rubbing ginger oil on an affected area can help reduce pain. Intake of ginger twice daily has been shown to improve the pain and swelling of the joints in arthritic patients and improves their range of motion.
Maintaining Normal Blood Circulation
Ginger contains chromium, magnesium and zinc which help to improve blood flow. Consuming a cup of ginger tea can help improve blood flow, as well as help prevent chills, fever and excessive sweating. The active components of ginger, such as minerals and amino acids, help make the blood flow smoothly, and may help prevent the onset of cardiovascular disease.
Strengthening The Immune System
Packed with antioxidants, ginger can help improve the immune system. Consuming a little bit ginger a day can help foil potential risk of a stroke by inhibiting fatty deposits from the arteries. It also decreases bacterial infections in the stomach, and helps battle a bad cough and throat irritation.
Relieving Stress and Coping with Depression
Ginger contains a potent antioxidant called gingerol, which helps cleanse the harmful chemicals our bodies produce when we’re worried, helping relieve psychological stress. Ginger also stimulates the production of stomach acid, crucial to digestion, which can break down when we’re stressed. That’s explains how stress can lead to an upset stomach! Hot water with a slice of lemon and chopped ginger is an excellent way to stimulate digestion.
Ginger tea is a remarkable stress reliever because of its comforting and relaxing scent. Simply taking a whiff of ginger tea may be all you need to help improve your mood. Also, some compounds present in ginger have the capacity to bind to human serotonin receptors, helping in the treatment and reduction of depression and anxiety.
Treating Bad Breath
Gargling with ginger and lemon juice is a very good natural remedy for halitosis or bad breath. Add a teaspoon lemon juice and a teaspoon ginger juice to a glass of warm water and gargle with it once or twice a day.
Healing Hypopigmentation Scars (White Scars)
Hypopigmented scars, or skin that has lost its’ pigmentation, can often be remedied with ginger. Just cut a fresh slice of ginger root and rub the juice over the skin two or three times a day. Cut a fresh slice each time you do it, and don’t rub the skin too hard. Ginger triggers the melanocytes that are not working under the skin, to react and mimic their neighboring cells. Hypogimented scars will appear to shrink and then blend between 4 to 12 weeks use.
Fighting Cancer
A study at the University of Minnesota found that ginger may slow the growth of colorectal cancer cells. Ginger powder has also been proven to induce cell death in ovarian cancer cell.


Migraine Relief
Research has shown that ginger may provide migraine relief due to  its ability to stop prostaglandins from causing pain and inflammation in blood vessels.
