Those summer months are just around the corner, which means… potential SUNBURN. By now, everyone is aware that aloe vera does wonders for burns. For sunburns, it’s especially good for soothing relief and to speed healing. Because I’m very fair skinned, I’ve pretty much used aloe vera all my life, and was chased around as a kid to have it applied to me after getting those nasty sunburns, and have never found a product that compares. You should, of course, always use a good sunscreen when you’re going to be in the sun even for short periods, (especially if you’re fair skinned!) but sometimes we end up in the sun unexpectedly, or we missed areas when applying the sunscreen. Here are a few things you can do to soothe that nasty sunburn with aloe vera. If most of your body is covered in sunburn, the best way to soothe it is not always possible because more than likely you won’t have a sufficient amount of aloe gel around. But if you do keep large quantities of fresh aloe gel on hand, you can draw a cool bath, adding a large amount of the aloe gel to the bath. Soaking in the aloe vera bath will draw heat from your skin and soothe the pain greatly. (and will also make your skin oh-so soft, but when in pain, you won’t care about being baby soft, of course) You can also, of course, apply the aloe gel directly to your skin. Just apply Read More

I’ve extremely sensitive skin and needed to look into something that worked well, particularly with my face, because all the products I’ve used are simply much too harsh. If you’ve that same overly sensitive skin, you may want to try this aloe vera facial mask as well. It may sound a little gross at first, but your sensitive skin will love it! You’ll need: 4 tbsp of PURE aloe vera gel (as in, get it from the plant!) 2 tbsp of PLAIN yogurt 6 tbsp of FRESH cucumber juice. (note: if you don’t own a juicer, you can grate a peeled cucumber onto a fine net cloth, or muslin cloth – fold the cloth around the grated cuke, and ‘wring’ the cucumber juice into a bowl) Mix all ingredients well and gently apply to your face and neck, and leave it there for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water, (don’t scrub it or anything!) and then a final rinse with colder water to close the pores. Pat face dry with a towel, and you’re good to go! The yogurt and cucumber cleans, and the aloe vera moisturizes and soothes. I, personally, do this once a week. More than that, certainly will not hurt. Read More

I admit it… my hair is just plain awful. Between coloring it on a regular basis, blow drying it, not cutting it as often as I should, not using the best conditioners, etc., it’s just been a complete, dry, mess. It wasn’t always like this. For awhile (when younger of course) I would get such nice compliments on my long hair. I’d say the last 8 years or so, not so much though. The winter months are especially annoying for me, since my hair is just dull with no life to it. I’ve tried all kinds of things for my hair. Spending $50-$100+ on a bottle of conditioner just makes no sense to me, not to mention, who can afford that these days? So admittedly, I haven’t tried any of those. Maybe they work, maybe they don’t. I, personally, am not going to spend the money to find out. 😉 For the last 8 weeks or so, I’ve been trying a ridiculously simple recipe that a gal at work told me about, and she’s been doing it for several years now. Her hair is gorgeous, soft, manageable and full, plus she’s a couple of years older than I am. So simple, it only has two ingredients, and is affordable. Coconut milk and aloe vera. That’s it! Nothing more, nothing less! She uses it once a week since it acts as a deep conditioning treatment, so I’ve been doing the same, but you can use it as often as you like. If Read More

If you’ve found your way to this blog post, chances are, you have been told by your doctor that you have acid reflux and have already read all the articles on the net about what Acid Reflux or “GERD” is. You know that acid reflux is a possible prelude to other illnesses. You know that it is caused by a disturbance in the acid-alkaline condition of the stomach. You know various foods that are difficult to digest will cause stomach spasms, which leaves the opening between the esophagus and stomach open for gases to form that shouldn’t. You probably also have a seemingly endless list of foods and drinks you need to avoid – pouting and sighing as you read that list since most of your favorites are on it. You’ve probably read that aloe vera juice will work miracles and will completely eliminate acid reflux, but you’ve tried drinking the aloe vera juice and find you’re still not getting enough relief. All you really care about, is that this is an indigestion problem that has gotten completely out of hand and is creating acid waste to flow up to your esophagus, causing an annoying irritation that keeps you awake a good portion of the night, into the morning, and left to continue throughout the day. I know, because I can completely relate and have been dealing with it for many years now. As a fellow sufferer of acid reflux, I’m sure you already know you need to cut out the Read More
