How to Get Rid of NAIL FUNGUS

How do you get rid of unsightly nail fungus?
I had a client who suffered from really unsightly nail fungus for no less then 25 years!!!  Her GP had prescribed several courses of antibiotics och she tried other expensive treatments, but nothing worked.
It actually got worse and spread to other nails. She had given up and was trying to hide the problem with layers upon layers of nail polish.
I told her about the fab result I had had with VapoRub. She was willing to give it a go but deep down she did not expect any type of positive result.
After 3 months the fungus was completely gone!
She could not believe it!!
How does it work?
VapoRub contains menthol, eucalyptus, camphor, cedar leaf oil, petrolatum, nutmeg oil, thymol and turpentine oil and some of these are antifungal.
It’s especially thymol that seems to be effective against the fungus. Studies have shown that thymol destroys the cell membranes of candida – a common cause of nail fungus.
Thymol is extracted from oil of thyme so just using thyme oil might also help.
Do you suffer from nail fungus or have you tried VapoRub? Let me know!!

Space Clearing Mist

This is the space clearing mist I’m obsessed with at the moment,  that I mentioned in yesterdays blog post. Every time a spray this mist I immediately feel uplifted and refreshed. I spray it on top of my head and in front of me and then quickly walk into the beautifully smelling dew. You know that calming feeling you get when you are next to a waterfall? That’s the sense I get from using aura mists.
The  Peace & Harmony mist from Findhorn Flower Essences comes in a sturdy glass bottle and the spray gives an even delicate misty cloud. The fragrance is absolutely divine,  a mix of Rose & Frankincense. My favorite combination.

Get Creative With Herbs

 

Hi everyone,
I was send a really interesting book about herbs a few weeks ago. It’s written by  Henriette Kress a herbalist who lives and works in Finland.
In this book she’s covered anything from finding herbs and picking them to what concoctions to make from the herbs, like lotions and potions and teas and foods. I got inspired to make a herbal tea with rose petals and a  body oil that smells divine!

Floral Street Perfume: Eco Packaging

Floral Street is a new chic british perfume brand. I headed to their flag-ship store in London’s Covent Garden to sniff myself towards a new favorite perfume for spring. Everything from packaging to the shop and everything in-between is beautifully designed and insta-friendly. I normally only write about totally natural, clean products but I want to give this brand a big applause because the packaging is totally eco-friendly! The secondary box holding the perfume bottle is totally biodegradable,  made from recycled paper packaging and held together with a bright coloured band perfect to use as a hair tie! The body products might look like they come in bog standard plastic tubes but the sales person told me they are also biodegradable and are made from sugar! The beauty business have been shockingly slow in coming up with eco-friendly packaging,  so this company gets a big thumbs up!


I liked almost all of the eighth different fragrances, but I liked the Ylang Ylang Espresso a little bit more, so that was the one I bought 🙂
They all come across a bit “What you spray is what you get” if that makes any sense? I didn’t find they developed on the skin as they day passed. This is not a criticism at all just an observation. This is the same feeling I have when I use Byredo’s perfumes and as it turned out the perfumer Jerome Epinette also developed thirteen of Byredo’s scents.

The selfie seating outside. Genius!

Invisibobble


Hi!
Am I the last person on earth to hear about and try the Invisibobble?? How could I have missed this miraculous hair assessor? I blame it on having boy-children only.
I love to have my hair up in a pony tail IF I have had my roots done fairly recent.
And of course I always have it up when I go training. (Which is happening regularly nowadays :))
What is so different with this gadget in comparison to ordinary hair ties is that it  doesn’t pull on the hair. You won’t get those big indentations in the hair when you let it out, after training for example. This is normally a major issue for me and my fine hair!  But this old-style telephone cable fixed that. I also like that the company was founded by 2 college students and is now massive! Everyone and his aunt have copied their idea, but the plastic in the fakes seem inferior, they don’t stay on as well or they pull to hard. I bought my original Invisibobble at Boots, they were about £5 for 3 ties.

Lip Love


Hi!
When you are switching to clean green beauty products, start with swapping either your foundation (because it covers a big area) or your lipstick.
Here are 4 reasons why switching to clean lip products is a good idea:
-The skin on your lips is thin and it’s easier for nasties to penetrate
– You probably re-apply during the day so larger quantities of toxins will be absorbed.
– you will inadvertently swallow some of the product as you eat and drink.
– Your kisses won’t come with nasties 🙂

Ilia Beauty: Lipstick: Wild Child
Lippy Girl: P-Bomb
Pacifica: Coconut lip Butter in Shell

My Beauty Routine

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all having a great week! This weeks video is a bit of a rambling beauty routine video. I love beauty products but I want to keep it simple and have as few hard working products as possible. I’m not a beauty hoarder or a collector. My beauty area is in my bathroom very minimalist indeed. As per usual I cleanse with an oil cleanser. This one is from Whamisa a Korean brand that is fairly new to the UK. I also try out the Mother Dirt Moisturizer with mixed feelings. I will do another video about this when I get my hands on that crucial spray that I touch on in this video. Dr Hauschkas Cleansing Cream is my champion product together with Green Peoples Fruitful Night Cream and I love the smell of Therapis rose toner.
Next week I’m recording cooking and fermentation videos and also a quick one about a lipstick. Feeding my inside and outside with clean green stuff 🙂

Now you can get your hands on it.
Estelle and Thild is a Swedish clean beauty brand that launched a make up line recently. I always stock up on their lotions and potions when I’m in Stockholm, and I was very keen to try the make up. I have seen their beauty products in Selfridges but I think you can only get the make-up  on-line. Net a Porter sell this foundation for £32.

Video: Off to the Gym!

Hi everyone!
I’m so happy I’ve been able to start exercising again. It’s been 3 years of having a bad knee, where running to the bus resulted in not being able to walk the following day. Physio absolutely helped but I suspect the clincher was the supplement I started to take. So far so good!

The products mentioned in this video:
Orgono Living Silica
Lavera eye brow styling gel Hazel brown
Pacifica Coconut lip Butter Shell
