Exfoliating is not at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to caring for the skin. You may rinse your face with some water or soap it up in the shower and call it a day. When you exfoliate your skin, you actively work to hydrate and tone your skin. Some of our favorite things about exfoliating include reducing acne and breakouts and getting rid of wrinkles.

 

When you apply sugar scrubs to your skin, the sugar actually helps remove dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin every single day. As you massage the scrub on your skin, it actually helps increase circulation, which ultimately assists with collagen production and skin cell regeneration. This can help inhibit the development of wrinkles or other signs of aging.

 

Green Tea:

Green tea is full of antioxidants that work to reactivate cells and repair damaged skin. Some people like to make toners or lotions with green tea because of the natural healing properties. This recipe uses the green tea leaves to scrub unwanted pollutants from the skin.

 

Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

This oil is not just for cooking and salad dressings. Interestingly enough, extra virgin olive oil actually works to remove unwanted oils from the skin. It has beneficial antioxidants that work to slow the signs of aging.

 

Ingredients For Scrub:

  • 1 tablespoon dried green tea leaves (can be taken from 2-4 tea bags)
  • 1 cup organic brown sugar
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil

Instructions:

  • Mix all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Scoop this mixture into an airtight container and then store it in a cool dry place.
  • When you want to use this exfoliator, apply about 1 tablespoon to your hands and massage it onto the face/body for 30 seconds. Rinse this from your skin with warm water and pat dry.

DIY Charcoal Detox To Help Whiten Underarmshttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/diy-charcoal-detox-to-help-whiten-underarms/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/diy-charcoal-detox-to-help-whiten-underarms/#comments Thu, 18 Jan 2018 18:15:45 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75956 If you are embarrassed by dark underarms, this DIY charcoal detox can help restore confidence. It’s a healthy way to whiten armpits!

A lot of people use chemically-rich hygiene products that the skin ultimately absorbs. If we are solely referring to deodorants, roll-ons, or perfumes, they can clog pores and can actually build up on your skin. Nobody wants to smell bad, but you don’t have to poison your body to smell good.

 

Some people just don’t want to change their deodorant, even though they know it is bad. Aside from making your armpits smell good, you need to give them some healthy attention too. Because the sebaceous glands in the armpits are always active, they are constantly producing sweat; thus body odor. If you don’t detox your underarms, you can develop more prominent body odor or dark underarms.

 

Causes of Dark Underarms:

Some people have dark underarms and others never have to worry about this problem. Dead skin cells, chemical build-up, excessive sweating, excessive deodorant use, and friction from rough fabric are all possible causes of dark underarms. To help detox your underarms and naturally whiten them, we recommend using the following DIY remedy.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons activated charcoal powder
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw honey

Instructions:

  • Combine the charcoal and honey in a bowl and stir well. Mix until you get a shiny paste.
  • Wash your underarms and pat them dry before applying the charcoal honey mixture. Apply to each underarm and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • Rinse the mixture off with warm water and then pat dry. Do this process three times a week for about a month to sufficiently detox and whiten your armpits.

It is no secret that there is a direct link between stress and certain skin conditions. Psychological stress (i.e. worrying about money, work, making food, kids, parents, or anything) can aggravate the skin. For instance, a common side effect of stress is dark circles, especially when this is combined with lack of sleep.

 

The body can only handle so much before it becomes stressed. When certain pressures go beyond a person’s adaptive power, his or her brain understands that the body is stressed and releases stress hormones. This can lead to behavioral or physiological changes. Dark circles, for example, can be a physiological response to an over abundance of stress hormones in the body.

 

When it comes to naturally getting rid of dark circles, it is much easier remedy the situation when you treat the cause. If stress is causing you to sleep less and develop dark circles, it may be beneficial for you to practice some stress relieving exercises. Natural ways to eliminate stress include massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, exercise, or even eating a healthier plant-based diet.

 

Because it may take some time for you to naturally reduce your stress levels, we have a simple DIY skincare cream that you can use to remedy dark circles. It helps to hydrate your skin and decrease puffy eyes.

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ teaspoon beeswax
  • 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil
  • ½ teaspoon Shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • ¼ cup alcohol-free aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon organic raw honey
  • ½ teaspoon bentonite clay
  • 5-10 drops lemon essential oil

Instructions:

  • Place the first four ingredients in a double broiler* and heat until the mixture is melted. Pour into a blender and let it cool.
  • In a separate bowl, add the rest of the ingredients (except for the bentonite clay) and mix well.
  • Once the mixture in the blender has cooled and become similar to the texture of lip balm, break it up with a spoon and add the mixture in the bowl to the blender. Blend until everything is well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a non-metal bowl and stir in the bentonite clay with a non-metal utensil. Place the cream in a glass jar and store in a cool, dry place. Apply a little of this cream around your eyes every night before bed.

*If you don’t have a double broiler, you can place a heat-safe glass bowl over a saucepan that is filled with simmering water. Make sure that the heat is low once the water begins to boil.

5 Ways To Get A Healthy Start To The New Yearhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-ways-to-get-a-healthy-start-to-the-new-year/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-ways-to-get-a-healthy-start-to-the-new-year/#comments Mon, 01 Jan 2018 11:00:18 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75406 Trying to get on a healthier path in 2018? Use these 5 tips to help you lose weight or become a healthier person. You can do it!

Welcome to 2018! If you have decided to make healthy changes this year, we applaud you and encourage you to pursue your goals. Some of you might want to live healthier lifestyles, but you may not know where to start. One of the worst things you can do is to go overboard without a set program. The lack of planning can make it difficult to stay on the healthy path, and that doesn’t help you with your resolutions.

 

If you are focusing on being healthier in the New Year, we have some great tips to help you stay on top of things. You can use some or all of these tips, but make sure that they work for you. Sometimes you need to modify in order for it to work with your lifestyle.

 

Drink More Water:

We always support hydration! Most people don’t drink enough water and drinking the right amount is a great challenge to adopt in the New Year. If you feel that you need some support, grab a friend, coworker, or family member and keep tabs on how much you both are drinking. You should strive to drink half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day to stay properly hydrated.

 

Meal Plan:

When you don’t have to worry about what to make for your next meal, life becomes a whole lot easier, not to mention healthier. Having a prepped lunch, dinner, smoothie, or snacks can help you avoid unhealthy food items. Dedicate one day out of the week to making meals for yourself and you’ll be well on your way to a healthier life.

 

The Dherbs 180 Challenge:

If you feel like you have absolutely no idea how to start a healthier lifestyle and need inspiration, the Dherbs 180 Challenge is the light to illuminate the darkness. Not only are there recipes, meal plan ideas, and an exclusive Facebook group, but you also get workout tutorials and more! Time is running out to register so get in while you still can by clicking here.

 

Make It Easy To Exercise:

If you are planning on getting a gym membership, but the gym isn’t in a convenient location for you, don’t get it. Chances are you will not go and you will end up wasting money on your membership. Make it easy on yourself by working out at home. You can use fitness DVDs, online workout videos, or you can walk/jog around your neighborhood.

 

Don’t Go Anywhere Without A Snack:

Let’s say you have started to meal prep and you are making healthy meals for yourself. Does it do you any good if you are hungry and buy a bag of chips or get some French fries? Try to pack some vegetable sticks, fruit slices, homemade trail mix, or you can make some of our healthy snacks by clicking here.

And people are still experiencing the the amazing benefits! Try them out!

People have been experiencing the benefits of essential oils for thousands of years. Not only have they been used in aromatherapy, but they have also been used topically and internally to treat a variety of conditions. Out of all the essential oils, frankincense and myrrh have been predominant gifts over the years.

 

Frankincense and myrrh have been symbolic gifts throughout history. They have been given to kings, offered to deities, and, according to theologians, given to Jesus by the magi. Were these oils given as gifts because people were trying to naturally prevent arthritis? That was a naturally remedies joke, people…because these oils have powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

 

Both of these oils are very versatile and have been used across many cultures. You can use these oils differently for the benefits that are detailed below.

 

Frankincense Benefits

Anti-Aging Properties:

The powerful astringent properties help to nourish and protect skin cells. Frankincense oil is best applied to the skin when mixed with a carrier oil like coconut or extra virgin olive oil. You can apply it to the abdomen, under the eyes, or wherever the skin becomes saggy. This can help you avoid wrinkles and slow the signs of aging.

 

Relieves Gas:

Frankincense oil actually works to inhibit gas build-up inside the body. If you are gassy, Frankincense can be used to remove excess gas from abdomen or chest. It can also be beneficial for those with indigestion or abnormal amounts of sweating.

 

Boosts Immunity:

The antiseptic properties in frankincense oil help to eliminate germs or bacteria. If you want to purify the air in your house, adding this oil to a diffuser can be beneficial. Traditionally, frankincense oil has been applied to wounds to help prevent infection and tetanus. It has also been used to help inhibit internal infections.

 

Myrrh Benefits

Oral Health Properties:

If you want to help keep your throat and mouth healthy, take advantage of the health properties of myrrh oil. It is very easy to incorporate into your oral hygiene routine. Add 1-2 drops of myrrh oil to your natural toothpaste to brush your teeth. You can also add one drop of myrrh to two ounces of filtered water and gargle for 30 seconds as a natural mouthwash.

 

Emotional Balance:

If you enjoy aromatherapy, myrrh oil is great to add to a diffuser because the scent works to naturally lower stress or promote emotional balance. Myrrh oil’s scent has also been used in aromatherapy to help boost the mood or promote peaceful feelings at home during the holidays.

 

Promotes Healthy Nails:

In addition to keeping the skin healthy, myrrh oil can also be used to help promote healthy finger and toenails. The winter months are often dryer, and the weather can dry out your cuticles. You can make a DIY cuticle cream by combining coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and myrrh oil. This helps to keep the cuticles, nails, and skin healthy.

DIY Vanilla Pumpkin Sugar Scrubhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/diy-vanilla-pumpkin-sugar-scrub/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/diy-vanilla-pumpkin-sugar-scrub/#comments Sat, 23 Dec 2017 18:30:27 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75250 Need a last minute DIY Christmas gift to give someone?

If you made our homemade pumpkin puree and want to use it for something outside of the kitchen, we have an awesome way for you to use it. The best part is that you will still benefit from the nutrients in the pumpkin. We are talking about a sugar scrub, of course! Sugar scrubs are super easy to make and they are very beneficial for your skin, especially during these dryer, colder months, when keeping your skin moisturized is of the utmost importance.

 

Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil has amazing moisturizing and soothing properties that are beneficial for your skin. The healthy fats in coconut oil are absorbed through your skin and can actually work wonders, internally, for your body.

 

Cinnamon:

While cinnamon can be a great spice to help promote weight loss, most people don’t know that cinnamon can help get rid of dead skin cells. It helps to soften the skin and restore a natural shine. It works best when used in a sugar scrub, like the one below.

 

Note: Using raw sugar is best because it has more exfoliating properties, but using brown sugar is an acceptable substitute.

 

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir well. You can store the scrub in a Mason jar in a cool, dry place.
  • Use it in the shower (not on your face) on areas where your skin is typically dry.

5 Essential Oils That Can Quickly Get Rid Of Acnehttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-essential-oils-that-can-quickly-get-rid-of-acne/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-essential-oils-that-can-quickly-get-rid-of-acne/#comments Sat, 23 Dec 2017 12:10:00 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=75258 Nobody likes a pimple or zit that just appears out of the blue. If you want to get rid of pimples overnight, use these 5 essential oils.

Pimples seem to want to rob you of feeling good about yourself. Just when you thought you were lowering your stress, a pimple shows up and the stress is back again. How can you go out in public? How many products are you going to have to use to cover up your pimples? Rather than using chemical products, which only harm your body, we are bringing you some all-natural, overnight tricks to get rid of pimples.

 

What Causes Acne?

While stress can irritate acne, it is not the thing that causes it. The common belief is that acne is a result of rising androgen levels. Androgen, a type of hormone, levels rise during adolescent years and ultimately cause the oil glands to grow under the skin, thusly producing more oil. The excess oil breaks down the walls in the pores, causing bacteria to grow. Certain studies also indicate that acne can be genetic. Anytime there is a drastic hormonal change, for example during pregnancy or adolescence, acne can sometimes be a result. Impurities in the blood stream can also lead to acne because the impurities come up through the pores.

 

Note: Before using any of the following essential oils, make sure to do a patch test, especially if you have sensitive skin. This is so you can avoid a possible negative reaction.

 

Peppermint Essential Oil:

Peppermint oil works to decrease redness and swelling with the antimicrobial properties, which also help to clear up the skin. Mix a few drops of peppermint oil in 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil. Apply the mixture directly to the zit or pimple and let your skin absorb the mixture. Leave this on for a couple hours and then reapply.

 

Lemon Essential Oil:

Lemons have some amazing health properties. In fact, lemons help to regenerate skin cells. Additionally, lemon oil helps to fight free radical damage, which can lead to healthier skin. Before using lemon essential oil, wash your face and pat dry. Drop 3 drops of essential oil on a cotton ball and pat this on your skin. Apply this several times a day and once before going to bed.

 

Frankincense Essential Oil:

Frankincense oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that work to kill bacteria on the skin. It also works to tone the skin and promote healthy skin cell regeneration. This is a good oil to get rid of a stubborn pimple. After washing your face and patting it dry, drop 2 drops of Frankincense oil on a cotton ball and apply this to the pimple, and the surrounding area, before bed.

 

Tea Tree Oil:

This is a common acne treatment, especially for acne on the forehead, chin, and cheeks. Tea tree oil has powerful antimicrobial properties and tons of antioxidants, both of which help to get rid of acne. Mix 1-2 drops of tea tree oil with 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. Apply a drop or two of this mixture to the affected area every few hours to help get rid of acne.

 

Lavender Essential Oil:

The antifungal and antibacterial properties work to get rid of acne and the antioxidants help to accelerate the healing process. You can use this oil on the face, back, legs, and arms. To use this, apply a single drop on the pimple or zit and leave it on and let it air-dry. You can reapply after a few hours.

Natural skincare is very important to us here at Dherbs. The dangers associated with using beauty and cleansing products, which are full of chemicals, are becoming more and more publicized. This is leading some people to explore the world of natural skincare products, or DIY homemade products.

 

Learning to make your own beauty products is not very hard to do, especially since a lot of products use similar ingredients. You may find that it is very satisfying and your skin and hair will appreciate the natural care.

 

A lot of people don’t realize that cleansing the body helps to pull out the toxins, which your body absorbs, from hygiene products. If you plan on taking part in the Full Body Cleanse, for instance, you might want to think about using natural hygiene products during the process, so that you aren’t counteracting what the cleanse is trying to do. Try experimenting with natural products like the one below!

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 teaspoons cold-pressed argan oil
  • 2 teaspoons castor oil
  • 2 teaspoons shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon herbal infused olive oil (yarrow for light, rosemary for dark, & calendula for red)*
  • ½ teaspoon avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon sweet almond oil

Instructions:

  • Place a heat-safe glass boil over a small saucepan of boiling water. Add all of the ingredients to the bowl and stir until they are all melted.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Funnel them into a bottle with a dropper top.
  • When ready to use, work one or two drops at a time into your scalp and ends. Run your fingers through your hair to distribute the oil through the entirety of your hair. Make sure to work it into your scalp too.

 

* To infuse the olive oil, simply place the herbs in a jar with the oil and let the mixture infuse for a few days.

5 Natural Remedies To Get Rid Of Bad Breathhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-natural-remedies-to-get-rid-of-bad-breath/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/5-natural-remedies-to-get-rid-of-bad-breath/#comments Thu, 07 Dec 2017 19:06:23 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=74177 Nobody wants to have bad breath. That's why it's important to know what the cause is. Use these natural remedies to freshen your breath.

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is something that affects about 25% of the world’s population. Anybody can have bad breath, and it is the third most common reason people seek dental care, after gum disease and tooth decay. While poor dental hygiene can contribute to the problem, bad breath can often be caused by poor gastrointestinal health.

 

What Causes Bad Breath?

Bad breath can be caused by a number of things, including poor dental hygiene, unhealthy diet, or smoking tobacco. If you do not regularly brush or floss your teeth, food particles can become trapped in your teeth and mouth. There are bacteria that break down the food in your mouth. The combination of decaying food and bacteria can create a foul odor. If you eat an unhealthy diet comprised of a lot of processed foods, it can wreak havoc on your digestive system. Poor gastrointestinal health, or built up waste in the digestive tract or colon, can cause the foul odor in the mouth. Common causes are:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Unhealthy diet (comprised of processed foods, fried foods, meats, or strong foods like garlic and onion)
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Dry mouth
  • Periodontal disease (plaque build-up or tartar)
  • Sinus or throat conditions (sinus infection, Bronchitis, or respiratory infection)
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetes
  • Gastroesophageal Reflex Disorder (GERD)

 

Natural Remedies

Make Sure You Are Brushing:

While poor dental hygiene, which may cause gum disease, tooth decay, and plaque, can contribute to bad breath, your gut is usually the root cause. Nevertheless, brush your tongue with an all-natural toothpaste and floss between your teeth, as your tongue and tooth gaps can harbor excess bacteria.

 

Get Your Chew On:

Chewing on certain sticks and twigs, such as miswak, licorice, and neem, can provide temporary relief for bad breath. These sticks and twigs are antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, and antibiotic.

 

Peelu Tooth Fibers:

Peelu tooth fibers (sold at health food stores) can help to remove plaque from the teeth (enamel). Use of these fibers may also help to freshen the breath and kill negative (or harmful) bacteria in the mouth.

 

Cardamom:

Chewing on raw pieces of cardamom, clove, cinnamon and/or nutmeg can help freshen the breath and fight oral bacterial conditions.

 

Cleanse Your Colon:

Cleansing the colon and your other eliminative channels can also help treat bad breath. Colonics and enemas are also great methods and procedures for cleansing the colon and rectum. Colonics can be performed every three to six months and enemas can be performed on a more regular basis, i.e. weekly or bi-weekly.

6 Remedies To Help You Snooze Without Snoringhttps://www.dherbs.com/articles/6-remedies-to-help-you-snooze-without-snoring/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/6-remedies-to-help-you-snooze-without-snoring/#comments Tue, 05 Dec 2017 12:10:39 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=74089 Are you a snorer or do you sleep next to someone who snores? Try these things to improve your sleep and make it through the night quietly.

Nobody wants to sleep next to someone who snores. Snoring is usually made fun of or depicted in a comedic way in movies or TV shows, but it isn’t funny at all. Snoring typically can wake up the snorer, or it can cause poor sleep patterns for the person who sleeps in the same bed as the snorer.

 

What Causes Snoring?

You breathe through your nose and mouth. If your airflow is blocked or inhibited via congestion, the throat and tongue relax, which causes blockage and vibrations. These vibrations result in loud noises, snoring. If the airways are narrower, the snoring will be louder. Sometimes snoring can be attributed to other causes, which are listed below.

  • Alcohol consumption (relaxes muscles, including the tongue and throat, and can cause congestion)
  • Nasal problems (chronic nasal congestion or atypical nostril pattern)
  • Sleeping position (higher chance of snoring if you sleep on your back)
  • Sleep apnea
  • Sleep deprivation (less sleep than usual can lead to snoring)

 

Natural Remedies

Humidify and Humidify Again:

Dry air can be contributing to your snoring because it makes nasal and throat membranes dry, which contributes to congestion. This inhibits airflow and causes your tissues to vibrate, i.e. snoring. Add a humidifier to your room and use essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, and chamomile.

 

Drink Cardamom Tea:

Cardamom helps to naturally decongest your nasal passages, which opens up blocked airways. This results in better air passage and less snoring. Add ½ teaspoon of cardamom powder to 8oz of hot water and stir. Drink this 30 minutes before bed daily to help reduce snoring.

 

Raise the Head of Your Bed:

If you raise the head of your bead about 4 inches, this can help prevent your tongue from falling back and blocking your throat while you sleep. This may help to open up your airways. You’ll need sturdy blocks of wood that are about 1-2 inches thick. Add several of these blocks, one by one, under the two bedposts where you lay your head. Make sure this is steady and not wobbly. If you don’t want to do this, you can adjust your pillows to help elevate your head and open your airways.

 

Garlic:

In addition to the many things garlic can do for the body, it can also help reduce mucus build-up in nasal passages. It also works to decrease inflammation in the respiratory system. This is going to be intense, but chew on one raw garlic clove, spit it out, and drink 8oz of water before bed. This should help reduce snoring.

 

Keep the House Clean:

We know this is everyone’s favorite thing to do, so keep it up! Keeping your home clean can pay off when you go to sleep. Allergens like dust, animal hair, or pollen can cause congestion and impair proper airflow, both of which contribute to snoring. It’s also recommended to regularly change your air filters in your house.

 

Avoid Alcohol and Sedatives:
