Bicarb, Vinegar & Olive Oil

Anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate about healthy living! I don't always get it right, I do eat McDonald's sometimes and drink coke way too often. Never-the-less I do work at healthy living and one day will stop drinking coke... In the meantime here are some things that I like to use at home:

Teeth Whitening - I use bicarbonate of soda on my toothbrush after regular brushing to whiten my coffee stained teeth! It really works & is way less expensive than whitening products.

Household Cleaner - Much to my children's disapproval I use white vinegar for cleaning most things in the kitchen. I shine stainless steal, clean my windows and wipe down my surfaces with vinegar. It kills mould & bacteria and gives everything a nice shine & again costs very little. I actually came across a website that gives 1001 uses for white vinegar - check it out

Hair Treatment - In the Bible it says that you should anoint your head with oil so based on that I figured olive oil can't be bad for the hair! I use a tiny bit of olive oil as a serum. It's works wonders on my dry ends and I very lightly rub it over the rest of my hair to hold hair fly away bits of hair. Olive oil nourishes, conditions and improves the strength and elasticity of your hair.

I have also used olive oil as a treatment for my hair which works wonders. Firstly I rinse my hair with warm water then rub about a tablespoon of olive oil into my hair taking a few minutes to massage into my scalp. I take a little more oil to rub well into the ends of my hair and leave it on for half and hour with a plastic bag covering it. After this treatment I shampoo and condition as usual :)

Do you have any interesting tips to share?

    Ooohhh, I love home remedies and beauty treatments. Nothing makes me happier than using stuff around the house to make my hair shine or clean my windows. This post is so much fun! Thank you for sharing your money saving and health ideas...please keep them coming!

  2. A little olive oil is also great on babies who have cradle cap. Much better than using special shampoo or oil.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
