15 NATURAL PRODUCTS THAT YOU CAN USE DURING COVID-19
naturally healing products and most of those products I buy at the supermarket
or on Amazon. Most of my beauty products are from my kitchen cabinet. Some of
the same products I put on my skin and in my hair, I cook with to season my
food. The products you place on your body effect the chakra system as much as
the food you eat. Here is a list of my favorites:
COCONUT OIL I use a lot and is first oil on my list
because it is the main item for managing my hair and skin. I usually mix it
with tea tree and lavender oil for an after shave ingrown hair prevention
treatment. Coconut oil alone is antimicrobial, and I use as a natural mouth
wash as well.
APPLE CIDAR VINEGAR is antibacterial, and I drink
a capful with a cup of water once or twice a day to cleanse my gut. If you are
diabetic, AVC helps to regulate blood sugar and aids in weight loss. Other than
digesting, AVC can be used as a disinfectant to replace harmful cleaning and beauty products. I use as a face toner to combat acne and soak my
feet weekly to prevent fungus. It can be used to cure fungus as well with
consistency. People with dreads use to cleanse along with baking soda.
FLAX SEEDS I used for my hair today. I make hair gel with
flax seeds and after I make the gel, I keep the seeds to use in my oatmeal or
smoothie. I place on my face as a mask as well, because flax seeds contain
protein and omega 3, the beneficial fat. The texture of my skin feels tighter
and my hair feels smoother. My curls really pop after every use.
HEMP SEED OIL is a great oil and like coconut oil, it is a
carrier oil. I prefer hemp seed oil over olive oil for my hair and skin.
Consuming hemp seed oil supports the heart, brain and immune system. Hemp seed
oil contains omega 3 and 6.
HIMALAYAN SEA SALT I use instead of Epsom salt with AVC when I soak
my feet. Himalayan salt contains more nutrients than you might think. It
contains 84 essential minerals and regulates blood. Massage therapists use in
the form of a stone for bodywork, because it exfoliates and detoxifies the
skin. I make candles with Himalayan salt because it detoxifies the air and can
be used to cleanse gemstones of all the negative energy that has been absorbed.
BAKING SODA I mix in my foot soak with AVC and Himalayan
salt. It is a natural cleanser and I exfoliate my face and teeth with baking
soda. I use it to create a microdermabrasion by mixing with an oil. You can
clean with baking soda to scrub your surfaces and place on your carpets or
mattress to absorb bacteria.
TEA TREE OIL is another antibacterial product I use. You
can place in your foot soak, but I normally use tea tree oil with lavender oil
in my coconut oil to combat ingrown hairs. I wash my hair or moisturize my
scalp with tea tree oil for clearing dandruff.
LAVENDER OIL is calming and other than using for beauty
products, I use on my bed sheets. Lavender can help you fall asleep and if you
have a bed bug problem, this oil can help to protect you at night.
LEMONGRASS OIL I use as a natural perfume. I don't like
designer perfumes and lemongrass is strong enough to deodorize your armpits. It
is a natural repellent as well against mosquitos. Always use essential oils
with a carrier oil. Essential oils are strong and may burn the skin without a
ALOE VERA LEAF is one of the best superfoods because it is a great
natural healer. I use it as a gel for my hair and I drink it to regulate my
blood sugar. Aloe aids in healing anything happening inside the body. You have damaged
hair? Use aloe. You have dry, cracked feet? Use aloe. It is the perfect moisturizer
because aloe moisturizes without the oiliness and it is the perfect hair gel
without hardening hair. Aloe is the most affordable product compared to most
AZTEC CLAY is best mixed with AVC. I use for my hair
to loosen my curls and to detox my skin. It dissolves dandruff because it is
antibacterial and if you have acne, this is the product to use.
OLIVE OIL has vitamin E and sometimes I
place in a spray bottle to spray on my body while I am in the shower to combat
dry skin. I place olive oil in my salad with vinegar because it aids against
heart disease. If you have a cold and your chest is filled with phlegm, you can use
olive oil to help dissolve the phlegm. You will cough a lot because the phlegm
will lift easily. This is a trick I learned from an Arabic family when I was
sick and living in Algeria.
HENNA is used in Algeria and other countries for
antibacterial use. I use it for my feet to prevent fungus and it can be used to
heal feet from fungus. You can create a great henna design to cover unsightly feet and
nails. When I have a pimple, I use henna to heal and cover
blemishes. Henna is natural make-up, nail polish and hair dye. Other benefits
for the hair are combating dandruff and loosening curl pattern.
LEMON I used on my neck as a natural exfoliate
when I had marks from plucking ingrown hairs. It is natural retinol I recommend
leaving on for a minute and rinse off. In a couple of days, you will see the
skin lightly peel. Lemon is sensitive to sunlight and it is best to wear
sunblock after use before skin is exposed to the sun. I drink lemon water to
detox my gut as well.
MATCHA is awesome. It
is a high antioxidant and provides energy for me more than coffee. When I drink
matcha, I can't sleep because I have so much energy. I usually drink matcha
before I exercise to help boost my metabolism. Matcha tastes good in smoothies
and in vanilla ice cream. It is best to use matcha in desserts to help
