Make a list of all the things that are required of you and number them according to importance. Then determine how much time to a lot to each task. Are there things on your list that you could eliminate? Are you spreading yourself too thin? Carefully review the items on your list and eliminate anything that is not necessary or beneficial.

2- Delegate

Once you have written your list of tasks, review it to see if there is anything you can delegate to someone else. Are there some tasks you could ask for help with?  For example, could you ask a family member to help you fold laundry? Could you ask for help on an assignment at work?  Delegating tasks is a great way to prevent being overwhelmed.

3- Use Essential Oils

Using essential oils can help you feel less stressed and have been utilized to help naturally induce a calmer atmosphere. Suggested practices for natural stress relief is to diffuse or topically apply essential oils such as lavender, rose or jasmine.

Aromatherapy for Beginners

Aromatherapy for Beginners

There are hundreds of essential oil options, blends and remedies for just about every ailment. A holistic health practitioner or aromatherapist can help guide you to oils to improve your well-being. Essential oils used in aromatherapy can benefit your health in many ways! Below is a list of great aromatherapy options.

Using essential oils in a diffuser or wax burner is a great way to promote wellness and improve the air quality in your home, car or office. Diffused essential oils can be used to treat a wide variety of issues such as: reducing anxiety, creating focus or increasing libido just to name a few!  So, the first step to aromatherapy for health benefits is to purchase a quality essential oil diffuser.

There are multiple types of diffusers:  ultrasonic, nebulizing, heat and evaporative.

Ultrasonic diffusers work by emitting oil particles into the air when added to water.

Nebulizing diffusers are waterless yet they work by emitting particles of essential oils into the air.

Evaporative diffusers typically disperse the essential oils by using a fan mechanism.

Heat diffusers transfer essential oils into the air by using high temperatures.

Choosing the right diffuser for you is a personal choice depending on the types of oils you diffuse, for what benefit and also the environment you are diffusing in. For example, heat diffusers may not be the best choice if you live in a hot climate and struggle to keep the temperature in your home comfortable.

Once you have purchased a diffuser, it is also important to choose high quality, therapeutic grade oils. Discount and low-quality oils are typically filled with additives that can clog or harm your diffuser. Before you purchase any essential oils, be sure that it is a high-quality product that is pure.

There are many essential oil blends that can benefit your health.

Basic Aromatherapy Essential Oil Remedies

Eucalyptus, Spearmint and Peppermint are the top essential oils recommended to provide relief of allergies.

Lemon has antibacterial properties and when diffused, actually purifies the air. It is recommended for use in cold/flu season.

Lavender is indicated for relief of anxiety, depression and insomnia. When placed in a diffuser at bedtime or during times of stress it can induce a more relaxed state.

Jasmine and Ylang Ylang essential oils are noted for having a romantic effect and can naturally increase libido when diffused or applied topically.

Orange essential oil has been shown to have an energizing effect and can help promote alertness when diffused.

Lemongrass essential oil is loved by people but hated by bugs and is a natural insect repellent. It is great for use at outdoor events and can prevent mosquito and other bug bites.

Finding essential oil options, blends and remedies to naturally treat ailments is a great way to benefit your life. Be sure to find a holistic health practitioner or aromatherapist that can help guide you to oils to improve your well-being or contact our staff here at White Naturals!.

Natural Sunburn Remedies

Natural Sunburn Remedies

According to data from the CDC, 70% of people report experiencing sunburn. Over exposure to the sun can cause serious issues such as sun poisoning, skin damage and even dangerous cancers such as melanoma. This is why it is important to protect your skin and care for it properly.

Obviously, the first line treatment for sunburn is prevention.

Avoiding over-exposure to direct sunlight and wearing proper skin protection such as sunscreen should be the first steps you take to avoid sunburns. Avoiding sunlight during the hours where the UV rays are the most dangerous (such as midday-afternoon) is also beneficial. Staying in the shade and wearing appropriate clothing that shields your skin from damage will help you avoid sunburn.

People with fair skin should use extra caution in the sun and should use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

If you do end up with sunburn, there are many natural remedies to treat it. 

1-  Aloe

Aloe gel is the liquid harvested from the aloe plant and is widely used as a natural remedy for sunburn, rashes and general skin care. Its naturally cooling effect makes it a perfect option to treat painful sunburns. Aloe gel also has properties that can treat bacteria and fungi.

 

2- Menthol

Menthol is made from various types of mint such as corn mint and peppermint. When mixed with a naturally calming base such as shea butter or cocoa butter, this blend will soothe even the harshest of sunburns.

3- Essential Oils

There are many essential oils that are beneficial in the treatment of sunburns such as: Lavender, Tea tree, Geranium, Chamomile and Eucalyptus.   To use these oils to treat sunburn, Apply 5-10 drops into 3oz of a carrier oil and apply a generous amount to sunburned areas, careful to avoid getting the oils into eyes, nose or mouth.

4- Cold Compress

One of the best natural remedies to soothe a sunburn is applying a cool cloth or ice compress to the affected area. Be sure to apply a fabric such as a washcloth or shirt in between your skin and the ice pack.

5- Baking Soda

As a natural PH balancer, baking soda can help restore balance to sunburned skin. To use this remedy to treat sunburn, create a paste with 1/4 cup of distilled, clean water mixed with 1/2 cup of baking soda and apply to affected areas. Allow mixture to set on skin for 15-30 minutes, then gently rinse.

 

While the sun is a wonderful part of summer it should be enjoyed in safe moderation with proper clothing, hydration and skin care!  We here at White Naturals wish you a safe and healthy summer!

Get a Better Beard!

 

 

 

 

A masculine looking beard is a staple of manly appearance, but did you know that improper beard care can actually be a health hazard?

The Switzerland’s Hirslanden Clinic under the direction of Professor Andreas Gutzeit discovered that, “The researchers found a significantly higher bacterial load in specimens taken from the men’s beards compared with the dogs’ fur.”  This study suggested that animal fur was actually cleaner than the average man’s beard.

Germs and bacteria can breed infection and disease so taking care of your beard is important.

White Naturals is proud to have a premium line of beard care products to help you have the best beard possible.

Activated Charcoal is Great for Your Skin!

 

Activated Charcoal is Great for Your Skin!

Even though activated charcoal has been used since 1550 BC in ancient Egypt, it is still a great compound that can improve your skin in an organic, natural way!

Activated charcoal is formed from bamboo, wood or coconut shells. The process of creating activated charcoal happens when one of these substances is heated to a high temperature. These high temperatures change the chemical structure and create a “char” substance and “activates” the charcoal.

Activated charcoal can be used to provide many health benefits. It has a negative electrical charge, which causes it to attract toxins. As a main ingredient in our exfoliating detox scrub, activated charcoal can cleanse your skin in an intense yet gentle way. This pure charcoal scrub has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory propertie and is free of toxic chemicals. Using this scrub is a great way to cleanse your skin in an 100% natural and safe manner. We also offer a  Charcoal Face Mask  product designed to nourish and purify your skin. This mask is a great acne preventative and also treats blackheads.
