Aloe Vera Gelly – Product of the week 12th July 2018

It cannot be denied that the Aloe Vera plant is one of the best natural products because it has a multitude of uses. It naturally produces a minimum of six antiseptics which can fight against bacteria, viruses, mould and fungi. I’ve chosen it as my product of the week because it’s been a life saver for me in this heatwave but to just use it for sunburn is to massively underestimate its capabilities.

21 Uses of Aloe Vera Gelly

1. A refreshing and moisturising facial. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes while relaxing (or doing other jobs more likely!) and then rinse off to find your face’s natural moisture and plumpness has been restored!

2. A cooling body massage. Use on yourself to massage tired and aching legs or even better if you can ask someone else to rub it into your painful back, shoulders or neck. The cooling qualities help to relieve pain.

3. Apply to burns or scalds to promote healing.

4. Reduce the appearance of bruises by massaging gel into the area.

5. Apply to athlete’s foot and other fungal infections. The natural antiseptic properties will promote healing.

6. Regularly dab on to cold sores to combat the heroes virus.

7. Soothe sunburn, prickly heat or heat rash with the soothing properties.

8. Treat insect bites and stings.

9. Use as a deep conditioner for your hair. Once a week leave it on for 20-30 minutes then wash out.

10. Soften hard skin on feet by applying a layer of gel every day and leaving it for 15 minutes to sink it.

11. Soothe psoriasis, eczema and dry skin conditions with the deep moisturising properties.

12. Calm and soothe acne.

13. Relieve the pain of blisters.

14. Soothe skin irritations and allergic reactions.

15. Apply in pregnancy to avoid stretch marks.

16. Apply nightly to plump skin and reduce wrinkles.

17. Apply below the eyes overnight to reduce dark circles.

18. Get rid of dandruff with a 15 minute hair mask once a week.

19. Remove make up gently.

20. Promote hair growth by massaging into your scalp.

21. Apply to gums of teething babies to cool and ease pain.

Top 5 post partum products

No matter how much you loved (or hated) being pregnant, it’s a fact of life that it has a huge impact on our bodies. It takes well over a year for our bodies to get back to ‘normal’ after our little bundles are born. After you’ve had a baby, this just seems like cruelty. We’ve already been through enough as mummas, now we’ve got sleepless nights AND postpartum troubles?! What is this??

Well, here are my top five products that I used to help me get back to some resemblance of normality.

1. Aloe Vera drinking gel – Packed full of nutrients and now made from 99.7% pure leaf extract, this daily shot of goodness helped me get my mojo back! Baby bum has been a notoriously bad sleeper (although we are getting there now by rubbing Aloe heat lotion on his feet before bed) and it was KILLING me! My daily drinking gel has given me a huge energy boost, helped to clear my acne prone skin, and also helped to even out my digestive system because I was experiencing IBS type symptoms. This is my wonder product especially because it takes two seconds in the morning. Let’s face it there’s never any time in the mornings!

2. Active probiotic – I took this in my second month post partum. Just the general squashing of my insides by baby bum really messed with my digestive system. I experienced IBS symptoms swinging from constipation to the other extreme. After a month’s course of this probiotic and then moving on to my drinking gel, I have no digestive issues anymore. Hurrah!

3. Shower scrub – All of my body was affected by pregnancy but the strangest thing was my legs were super dry. I use this twice a week now and I’ve noticed such a huge difference. The scaliness has gone and I feel confident enough to show my legs off in clothing which I didn’t think I would ever do again. Also, the jojoba beads in this scrub are completely environmentally friendly.

4. Jojoba shampoo and conditioner – I noticed my hair was much greasier post partum (probably from running my fingers through it all the time because I’m so stressed!). I used to always use salon brands because I really love my hair and wanted to use the absolute best products. I tried this shampoo and conditioner after a recommendation from another business owner and I’m so glad I did. I’m now only washing my hair twice a week instead of every other day. I’m saving time and my hair is looking healthier.

5. Brightening tooth gel – Being sick everyday certainly had a huge impact on my teeth. Brushing my teeth while pregnant made me sick (well everything made me sick but this especially) so I had a bit of a build up of plaque. Plus bleeding gums which seems to affect everyone I’ve spoken to. This tooth gel is brightening (always a bonus) but also soothes gums with aloe and bee propolis which was just what I needed!
