Ok, maybe at some point we have to realize that mother nature will always win, but instead, let’s learn to love the process and just find natural remedies to making the process easier. The God’s Nectar Skincare company believes in making your experience heavenly using natural ingredients in the process.

 

Organic New Mom MATERNITY Belly Butter

The organic belly butter is like the creme brulee for erasing the itchy and irritating side effects that come with dealing with stretch marks. Ok, to be honest, I’m not a mom yet, but that doesn’t mean that I’m immune from having stretch marks. This is my confession and I hope you will be joining me on my Youtube channel as I create natural recipes for premature stretchmarks. Back to the Belly Butter, the consistency is not too thick, instead, it’s easy to apply and doesn’t feel like a paste. I love the light fragrance and the hint of essential oils which add an aromatherapy effect.

***PLEASE NOTE!!!

If you are postpartum, there are fabulous essential oils available for stretch marks. Neroli and Rose Hips are the best of them. If you’d like one added, please choose one in the menu or choose none.

If in the first trimester or if you do not want either, choose no essential oils.

If you are presently pregnant, I suggest leaving unscented, although it is claimed that neroli and rose hips is safe after the first trimester.

The best oils available for stretch marks, according to the latest research, are used in my belly butter. The beeswax seals them in! The essential oils that can be used in this product are fabulous and experts say are important in the reduction of stretch marks.They are neroli or rose hips. The Neroli helps regenerate skin cells. It is very lightly scented and smells a bit like bitter citrus. Rose Hips is loaded with Vitamin C and creates more collagen from your body’s chemistry. The choice is yours.

More about Essential Oils:

ABOUT ROSE HIPS:
When the collagen and elastin in your skin tear, it forms scars known as stretch marks. Many factors and conditions can cause the marks to form, including weight gain and pregnancy. Although many doctors assert that genetics play a big role in whether or not you develop stretch marks, there is also a range of products available to help fight their formation, including rosehip oil, or rosehip seed oil as it’s also known.

ABOUT NEROLI:
To me, it smells like a bitter orange. However, the properties in it are said to be the best defense against stretch marks and preventing them. It assists in regenerating skin cells that are stretched during pregnancy.

More about Stretch Marks:

Your skin is composed of elastin which can be thought of as a soft elastic tissue. It is soft, supple and stretchable but it too has its own limits. Some situations exert extra pressure on your skin such as sudden weight gain or loss, pregnancy and even rapid growth of your body during teenage years. Sometimes while exercising too, you stretch your body out of its limits. In such situations, you get those thick red or purple lines on your skin which is popularly known as stretch marks. Gradually these lines do fade away and become white or silvery white in color but they don’t go away on their own. You have to put efforts to remove these stretch marks.

Natural oils are excellent emollients and they have these capabilities to treat all scalp and hair problems as also skin issues including stretch marks. I have researched and identified the right type of oils for the very purpose. You should ideally gently massage your skin’s stretch marks with oil or cream for about half an hour daily. However, just applying oils or creams to the marks (something near to soaking them in oil) can also do wonders. If doing so, you need to apply cream or oil for about three to four times a day. The ingredients I use, with all their antioxidant properties and loads of nutrients, are considered the best oils to use in my cream for removing stretch marks.

TIPS FOR YOU TO AVOID STRETCH MARKS:
Follow these simple ways which are highlighted below to remove, prevent and fade the stretch marks.
1. Drink water of at least 10 glasses of water or more in a day which results in regular detoxification of skin pores and restores elasticity to get rid of the stretch marks. Drink a lot of water will also help to maintain your skin smooth, soft and clear which in turns helps to have problem free skin.
2. Try to avoid coffee, tea & other beverages which cause dehydration and thereby easily forming stretch marks.
3. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetable to get the essential nutrients, proteins and minerals, zinc, vitamins like A, C, D and E such as carrots, sweet potatoes, citrus fruits, milk, eggs, fishes, nuts, meats, fiber-rich foods, dairy products, avocados, sunflower seeds, blueberries, etc.
4. Regularly watch your calories to avoid rapid weight gain or loss which is the main cause for the stretch marks. Follow the diet which suits to maintain the perfect diet.
5. Make sure to lose your weight normally but not suddenly and also avoid the sudden increase in your diet. Have perfect diet plan to avoid this stretch marks.
6. You can also use the combination of oils like orange oil in vitamin E, coconut oil with cocoa and shea butter in vitamin E oil, coconut oil with olive oil, etc. for additional benefits to prevent this problem.
7. Dry brushing onto the dry skin where the stretch marks  can be found will exfoliate the skin by opening the pores and removing the dead cells and dirt. It stimulates the circulation and helps to mobilize fats and eliminates toxins.

Thankfully, the healing herbs from the very ground that we occupy on a daily, can bless us with vital  medicines that you can’t buy in a drug store. I took so long to share these tea leaves with you, because I wanted to see if these teas helped my allergies or throat issues. F. Y. I.

1.Organic Throat Clarity-Leaves

Magic hidden in a steel tin. Before we begin our review, I would first like to say that out of all the tea samplers, the organic throat clarity is my favorite. Ok, maybe I’m just being biased, because of my dry throat and the tea is for throat clarity. At first, I did have some reservation regarding the taste. Let’s be honest, usually herbal teas doesn’t always have pleasant flavors.

Moving on, the actual description regarding the organic throat clarity tea is accurate. The first herbal essence that I noticed was the chamomile and the peppermint. Naturally chamomile has a very smooth and cozy taste, while the peppermint releases an euphoric cooling menthol’s that eases aches of a sore throat.

 

Organic Throat Clarity– via full leaf tea company. This tea is specifically formulated to help soothe sore throats. Its combination of natural ingredients work together to help alleviate pain and fight infection. Cloves, ginger, and chamomile give this blend its cozy, warm taste while peppermint provides its refreshing and smooth flavor.

The Vita Me Tea Blend is the multi-purpose remedy that will satisfy your needs so you can be your best. The dried berries in the tea leaves adds a fruity element to the tea, which explains why this is  multi-purpose! So I decided to experiment and after brewing this tea in hot water, I added ice cubes. This was convenient since I don’t like to drink  processed juice’s with artificial sweeteners. So guys, let’s just say your studying or chasing after kids, you can have a cool summer drink that is calorie free and healthy.

The secret to  preventing the symptoms of a cold virus that may challenge your body is proper immune support. I will talk about my personal experience  in the video below regarding this tea. Regarding the flavor of the tea, I would give it an 8 our of 10. Every since I was a little girl, I drank echinacea tea to prepare my immune system and this habit has stayed with me every since. I have not been sick in 3 an half years now. Thank God!

The Last of the Leaves!

Now, before I talk about this detox tea, I would first like to stress the importance of  speaking with your doctor about Detox Teas, before utilizing these natural herbs. One word to describe this Detox Tea would be “WinSpring”. A.K.A. Winter and Spring mixed together. The minty flavor and the hints of lemon makes this tea refreshing and enhanced my energy after the first cup.
