    • ANSWER:
      For face toner: 1. Mint toner- Boil a liter water and add a handful of mint leaves. Wait for 10 minutes. Now, strain the liquid and allow it to cool. Store it in a refrigerator. Use it with a cotton pad to wipe your face.
      For facial mask: Makes 1 application
      2 tablespoons real mayonnaise
      1 teaspoon baby oil
      For facial scrubs:•2 tbsp sugar
      •3 tbsp warm water and just mix
      For hair masks for straight: Olive oil hair mask
      Whisk up 5 tablespoons of olive oil – it doesn't matter which sort – with 2 full eggs. Massage thoroughly into your hair and then cover it with plastic wrap or a shower hat. Your body heat will help the oil to penetrate. Leave for a minimum of 30 minutes and then shampoo out, rinsing well. Also,Egg mask
      Beat two full eggs with 2 tablespoons of water. Apply to clean, damp hair, massaging in well. Leave for 10 – 15 minutes and then wash out with mild shampoo And my favorite, Banana smoothie for hair – not for drinking!
      Mix 1 mashed banana, 1 full egg, 3 tablespoons of honey, 3 tablespoons of milk and 5 tablespoons of olive oil. Make sure it's well combined and then apply to hair. Leave for 15 – 30 minutes and wash out with a gentle shampoo.
      For lip care: exfoiliate with the facial scrub works as well for lips.
      For bath salts:
      •Some salt - I prefer a mixture of sea salt and epsom salt, but there are many different types of salt both rare and common
      •Some scent - you can use skin-safe fragrance oils or for an aromatherapy bath, essential oils
      •Some glass or metal bowls to mix it in
      •Some whisks and/or spoons to mix it
      •A container to put it in - preferably air tight like a mason or other jar. (Plastic is better than glass around the bath tub if you can get it, though some fragrance or essential oils will warp and discolor plastic.)
      Yeah thats about it! Hope this helped! :)

    Aching shoulder?
    Hey, I recentley hurt my sholder by over reaching for something. It was fine at first but little by little it has began to ache and get more stiff. It is at a point now where the aching will come on suddenly at night making it impossible to sleep. It is weak and I feel that I cannot reach up with that arm or bear weight on it.
    I am in my 60's and female. I do not know what can be done to cure this or even what it is in fact. Any help would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Although we don't always pay attention to them until they're hurting, our muscles take a lot of use and abuse. Everytime we bend, lift, stretch, strain, rise, walk, run, sit, stand, lean, squat, and crawl, we use our muscles. In fact, every move we make requires muscle usage. You may be used to reaching for the aspirin or Tylenol whenever one of your muscles cause you discomfort. But, the next time, try these homemade treatments for muscle aches and pains that are sure to bring you satisfying relief!

      Soaking in a bath tub full of hot water and plenty of bubble bath can help soothe away the tensions of the day. Following along the same lines, my favorite homemade treatment for muscle aches and pains is to soak my weary body in a bath tub full of warm water... with a cup of Epsom salt mixed into it. Epsom salt is extremely beneficial in treating sore muscles. It also helps relieve the pain of fibromyalgia and migraine headaches, according to the Epsom Salt Industry Council. You can readily find Epsom Salt at your local drugstore.

      Another homemade treatment for muscle aches and pains is to soak in a tub full of warm water with two cups of apple cider vinegar mixed in it. Vinegar is believed to improve the body's blood circulation which helps remove harmful toxins from the muscles. Increased circulation helps valuable nutrients reach your muscles too.

      Using an electric heating pad will also help increase the blood circulation to the skin area it's applied to. However, heating pads are designed to lie relatively flat. Homemade Heated Rice Socks, on the other hand, can be more practical. They can be wrapped around an aching neck, knee or other joint. Unlike conventional heating pads that plug into an outlet, they're safe to take to bed with you. They are also safe for diabetics to use, and others who suffer from poor circulation.

      To make your own Homemade Heated Rice Sock, all you need is a long cotton tube sock. Fill it nearly full with white rice and tie off the end. Then, pop the sock in your microwave oven for a minute or so. Use it as a treatment whenever you need warm, moist relief from muscle aches and pains.

      Wintergreen and Eucalyptus Oils are also effective homemade treatments for muscle aches and pains. And, they're easy to use! All you need to do is rub a few drops of either oil on the affected skin areas for a cooling, then a warming relief.

      You can find these oils at your local healthfood store. Or perform a search on the Internet to find a supplier you can order them from.

      And finally, no matter which homemade treatment you choose to use, be sure that you drink plenty of tap water too. The water will help keep your body- especially your muscles- properly hydrated. Drinking a sufficient amount of water will also help flush away harmful toxins from your system.
