How do you preserve cosmetics?
Hi! I’ve been using Apple Cider Vinegar as my shampoo and coconut oil (with vanilla to make it smell better) as my conditioner. They work GREAT! I got a recipe recently for a hair gel for curly hair where you boil okra in coconut milk. Apparently it works well, but you have to freeze it. I want to make this, but how could I do this? I need preservatives that work make it last a while but can be bought it local stores. How do you preserve your cosmetics?
Is there anything I can do to alleviate demodex symptoms between Mitaban dips?
We rescued an 8 week old basenji mix puppy 3 weeks ago. After having her for 2 weeks we discovered she had roundworms (though the rescue says she had been de-wormed). A few days after seeing the vet we noticed a small loss of fur around her eyes and the next day she had thinning hair on her forehead. We took her to the vet immediately and found out she had demodex mange. She was given a Mitaban dip and we were told she would need to come back every 2 weeks for several treatments until we had 2 negative scrapes for mites. As we left the vet told us that she could possibly get worse before she gets betters, including reddened skin and bumps. This morning (2 days after her dip) she is definitely worse and now has bumps, scabs and a few sores. It is Sunday so I plan on calling the vet tomorrow first thing because I fear she may have gotten a secondary infection that requires antibiotics.
My question is: Though I plan to continue with the vet’s treatment plan, I wonder if there is any SAFE things I can do at home to alleviate the symptoms? I can tell she is uncomfortable because she doesn’t want to play, sleeps and cuddles a lot, itches herself, and pulls away if I try to touch her head (where there appears to be bumps/sores). I have coconut oil and I wonder if it would be okay to dab a little of that on her scabs since it is safe to ingest. I don’t feel comfortable using benadryl or cortisone cream without my doctor’s approval. And even though my doctor did not mention anything about whether or not she could be bathed in between dips, I have read online that you should probably not get them wet in between. Like I said, we will be seeing him tomorrow, I just wonder if there’s something I can do today.
Your vet is scamming you for money, and dips are very harsh and hard on a weakened immune system, especially for a puppy, so he is putting your dogs life at risk, too.
Find a better vet and get a second opinion. Small does of oral ivermectin over the course of a few weeks can cure without harming your dog. In the meantime, get your pup on a high quality immune boosting diet and possibly a immune booster vitamin.
The skin is red and irritated because the chemicals are so harsh. Put your dog in t-shirts so she won’t scratch and make scar tissue that doesn’t grow hair back.

can it be coconut oil that is used for cooking?
As if being the most delicious flavour, texture and smell wasn’t enough. I’ve recently discovered, that the humble coconut, is quite possibly one of the most powerful super foods around. This post could get very long…so I’ll dive into the bits of research I’ve found out so you can get the gist of what it’s all about and get purchasing/eating/smothering as soon as possible.
First things first, this isn’t just a body oil or hair care product. You can eat coconut oil. At room temperature, it’s a solid much like butter, when warmed in your hands or when cooking…it melts. We’ve just started using this, but plan to replace most of our oil/butter consumption with this…and it tastes AMAZING!! They recommend you consume between one and five tablespoons of oil a day. On toast it’s a dream, in Thai curry it’s ridiculous. But I like to literally ñom ñom teaspoonfulls of it throughout the day, straight up out of the jar. Sounds gross…I assure you, it’s the schnizzle. Thanks going out to Jenna Marbles
for putting me onto this ‘magical unicorn elixir’!
WHAT DOES IT DO?
One of the most interesting properties it has, it that it contains Lauric Acid. Lauric Acid is found in breast milk…so, no need to explain how über rejuvenating that is. Without trying to sound too complicated or medical of like I actually know any of this myself, here’s a list of what I’ve found the benefits to be. Feel free to Google it yourselves, there’s a ton of videos on YouTube too backing up the research – and what interested me most – the amount of real people raving about it and reviewing it. Contrary to popular belief (apparently, not that I’ve ever heard anything bad about it) coconut oil was considered a “bad” fat because it is a saturated fat. However, coconut oil is a “good fat” and actually beneficial for the heart. It helps in preventing various heart problems including high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.
Rub it on your fingernails, on your face (I find as a night moisturiser it’s best, its not crazy oily, but takes a little while to sink in totally) best lip balm ever, I left the house yesterday with dry almost chapped lips, used it throughout the day, they were soft by the time I got home from work…SHAZZAM. It reduces scarring, prevents stretch marks, heals burns/scrapes/scabs etc much faster, and literally erases bruises. I rubbed it on a mosquito bite yesterday and it instantly soothed it…barely noticeable today. My skin already looks plumper on my face, fine lines reduced, lovely squishy bouncy skin…and I only started using it last night…FOR REAL.
Best eyemakeup remover ever, and it actually conditions your eyelashes making them stronger and grow longer. Same for hair on your head (or wherever you want to grow thicker longer hair!) whack it on dry hair leave it for a few hours or overnight in a bandana or turban or whatever…wake up…and voilá – you’re the Timotei chick. Relieves dandruff, prevents lice, and cures (if not dramatically improves) psoriasis and eczema.
First thing I noticed like many others, is that it gives you an almost instant mad energy boost. Sort of like a coffee, but not jittery and wide eyed, just bouncy happy buzz…yeah baby! Did I already mention how freakishly delicious it is? It suppresses binge eating by levelling out your blood sugar, so you don’t go raiding the fridge and ruining your new year diet. It boosts your natural metabolism and actually makes you LOSE weight.
It sorts out your digestion, immune system, it’s anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal (cures shit like athletes foot and yeast infections, stops you getting cold sores and all that). It aids absorption of calcium and other vitamins and minerals into your body from other foods. Sorts out your internal organs…check this post out for the medical shizz >>
It’s a great tanning oil, and can help your skin build up better tolerance to the harmful rays…what else can I say?? Well probably lots but I’m even boring myself writing it all down. I’ll update the blog with more stuff I discover if it’s worthy of y’all knowing about it…
GO GET SOME! Available in most health food stores, or online at sites such asamazon
What are the symptoms of a yeast infection?
I’m just wondering, what are the symptoms of a yeast infection? I have white secretions coming out of my vagina, and sometimes the can look like little globs. Now I’m not entirely sure that is normal. Can somebody give their opinion on what it might be?
