Do You Know Organic?

Organic is Vibrant well-being

Fruits and vegetables are imperative for our well-being, before antibiotics, our ancestors relied upon Mother Nature for effective and safe remedies. Healthy skin is achieved from within, I would like to share a few recipe treatments using of my favorite  healing foods.

Organic Seeds

Pineapple

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Speeds up tissue repair
  • Protects bones
  • Energizing
  • Immunity booster

Pineapple is rich in vitamin C, manganese, and bromelain. If your skin is dry, soak it in warm water for 10 minutes, cut a piece of pineapple peel and place it flesh-side down on the area, (miracle worker for dry heels), you may secure it with ace bandages, leave over night. When removing the dressing, gently peel it back, soak the area in warm water for 5 minutes, and dry. You may repeat this up to 3 nights, resulting in amazingly soft skin!

Pumpkin Seeds

  • Promotes prostate health
  • Fights fatigue
  • Aids memory
  • Helps skin complexion

What a great snack! Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, iron, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and B-complex vitamins. Excellent snack, easy to carry around and super healthy!

Slippery Elm

  • Soothes digestive tract
  • Eases colic
  • Emollient
  • Soothes sore throat
  • Calms irritated skin

Slippery elm is a soothing herb, used internally may help prevent digestive problems, crohn’s disease, and colitis. Used topically, slippery elm soothes wounds, burns, itchy and irritated skin. Cleanse the skin, then apply this soothing magical herb to the area and leave for 5 minutes, repeat as needed.

Milk

  • First-class protein
  • Strengthens bones
  • Rich in calcium

Milk does the body and skin good! Full of calcium, vitamin-B, iron and zinc, some studies have shown it may be good for the brain, nourishes the skin, reduces liver’s production of cholesterol and lowers blood pressure. How about a milk & honey bath lotion? Simply add half a cup of milk, 2 eggs, 3 tbls oil, 2 tsp honey, 2 tsp organic shampoo and 1 tbsp vodka in a bowl, mix together and pour in a glass bottle. You may add 3-4 tablespoons to bath water. (Keep the home-made lotion in the fridge, and use within 3-5 days)

Tea Tree

  • Antifungal
  • Antiseptic
  • Treats skin infections
  • Used for oral infections

Tea tree is an effective remedy for a brad range of ailments, especially fungal and skin problems like acne, insect bites, athlete’s foot, yeast infections, ringworm, sore throats, may help combat gum disease, and useful for colds. Tea tree skin wash is amazing, make your own! 1 tsp dried or 2 tsp fresh tea tree leaves and 1 cup of freshly boiled water. Steep the herbs in water for 10 minutes, then strain. Leave it to cool, then bathe the skin of affected area, repeat as needed.

Increase your site visibility

How to set yourself apart from the rest, be visible!

A Blissful Skin is an ongoing project dating back to 2010; through the years I’ve learned a few imperative tips which made  branding fun and unique. Every startup business faces similar challenges, did you know branding and developing a following, are top priority?

1. Own it, differentiate yourself!

In business management it’s called Unique Selling Proposition (USP), this is what gives your small business a competitive advantage, making it marketable by creating awareness across the World Wide Web.

Do you know your clients needs? Are you able to capture their interests? Something I’ve learned is that “A sale is complete once the client comes back and/or has sent you a personal referral…”.

You must prove to your clients and visitors that you are on top of your game, you know your industry, and that you are the exclusive entity that is honest and has their backs! That’s how you build loyalty and a following.

2. How do you drive traffic to your site?

Fun fact : “Did you know your prospects need to see your marketing message up to twenty-seven times before they even notice you?”

Do you know the importance of an online presence and how to position yourself to maximize ROI (return on investment)?

Your small business must be unique, set it up on a variety of marketing and social media platforms. I love social media marketing, I find it easy and fun, once you grasp the concepts, you too will enjoy engaging with your prospects!

By connecting all of your platforms, potential clients, friends and family will read your Tweets, view your Facebook updates, LIKE your Facebook business page, follow you on Instagram, subscribe to your site, read your online articles and watch your YouTube video, they can’t help themselves, you’ll stand out and this will tremendously help your business go viral.

One of the greatest moments of A Blissful Skin was when my friends in Switzerland and Italy said, “Wow, she is everywhere! How in the world can she do it?” Once they ask themselves this question, the natural next step is for them to find out more about your small business and refer you out to friends and family!

3. Teach don’t Preach!

Education is the magical key in relationship building! Why? Because sharing knowledge makes prospects feel that you’re not in it just for the money but to actually help them. Your reader needs to trust and ultimately learn from you before he or she is ready to make a purchase, or invest in your services.

Remember, only post valuable information, educational tips, advice, tools from your industry, be sure to make it an easy read and spellcheck before publishing.

Hope you enjoyed this, please leave any feedback you may have, I cherish my readers and followers 🙂
