I love super activated charcoal. I take a little bit of charcoal in water almost every morning. Charcoal absorbs the intestinal bad stuff.
My second useful tip to not be bloated anymore is to use enzymes, as Dan The Man speaks so eloquently about. He has tons of videos on the subject, such as “LIFE AND DEATH BEGINS IN THE COLON“.
I buy my enzymes Enzymagic on Raw Living.
Do you know the amazing woman named Kate Magic? I follow what she is putting out into the world for more than 10 years now. Something that never changed is the emphasis on internal cleaning of the intestines. In her last and great book The empowered woman, she writes that she does “two enemas a month and four colonics a year“. This is indeed my first useful tip for an almost (because we are not perfect) flat belly: enemas and colonics.
My second tip is to work on my core. Yoga With Adriene has been so helpful in this regard. For instance, the “Core Strength Ritual – Yoga With Adriene” is amazingly effective. After two children, getting some abs back is so gratifying. It is never too late. My second “baby” is now 9 years old!
To avoid using chemicals on my daughter’s feet warts, I use either lemon peel marinated in white vinegar or oregano essential oil on a little plaster.
Hypafix is really helpful to keep in place the lemon peel on the wart or the plaster with oregano oil.
To clean my teeth, I use a drop of peppermint essential oil and a pinch of bicarbonate of soda (baking powder) on an electric toothbrush.
It is also possible to add coconut oil, as described in my video “How to make a #toothpaste and a face scrub using coconut oil?“.
I am grateful for the fantastic book by Nadine Artemis, Renegate Beauty, which is a great source of inspiration as regards natural beauty.
Of course, I recorded a review of Renegate Beauty on youtube “Renegate #Beauty – 10 #books to rebuild our life Series – 10“.
One of my dreams recently came true: I own an aloe vera and it lives on my kitchen counter.
From time to time, I cut one of its leaves and use the pulp for smoothies or for my skin.
I tried the nopoo method to take care of my hair in a more natural way.
The idea is simple: instead of using regular shampoo which can deprive the scalp from natural oils, you apply apple cider vinegar or lemon juice on the hair. You can also do a dry shampoo with bicarbonate of soda.
The result was so bad for me. I could not stand having this greasy hair any longer. After two months of trying the nopoo method, I did not go back to regular shampoo however. I decided to use a natural olive oil soap and it is great at the moment.
Have you tried the nopoo method for your hair? How was it for you? Please share with the community and let’s help each other sisters!
I was asked by a kind person on instagram (@clairesamuelenglish) which were the products I was using on my skin in the morning and in the evening.
The list is very simple, minimalistic even:
1. I cleanse my face with olive oil (a good make-up remover by the way)
2. I rinse the skin with apple cider vinegar
3. I use a day cream (even at night) from the organic brand Weleda
This is all and this is perfect! This simple beauty ritual makes my skin glow and leaves me with plenty of time to create beautiful things.
