How It Works
Lymph is a fluid in our circulatory system and it contains white blood cells, so lymph also affects our immune system. It picks up bacteria, toxins, and other waste from our blood and filters it through the lymph nodes, where the bacterium is destroyed. Poor blood circulation means the lymph cannot properly do its job resulting in cellulite, varicose veins, and a weakened immune system. Dry brushing improves the lymph flow.

Benefits of This Creme Include:
Make this recipe at home if you wish to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Have plump, soft, and firmer skin. This creme also helps as an anti-inflammatory, and helps reduce acne.
This vitamin enriched creme can be used on your face and body!
About the Ingredients:
Vitamin E has been proven to reduce the appearance of scars when it is applied to recently-healed wounds. It also has a number of anti-aging properties. After being absorbed into the skin, this vitamin sinks below the surface, to the deeper layers of the skin and encourages the natural growth of collagen. This gives skin a firmer, plumper look, which can play a significant role in reducing the appearance of many fine lines and wrinkles. This is especially in the forehead and around the eyes (although great care should be taken to protect the eyes themselves when applying any skin care products that contain vitamins).
The best thing about Jojoba Oil is that it is packed with almost all of the vitamins and minerals essentially needed for healthy hair and skin. Namely, vitamin E, B-complex, copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium. These powerful antioxidants contained in the jojoba oil help in regenerating the skin cells. It normally does not have any harmful impact, and can be used by even those who have sensitive skin without worrying about an allergic reaction. It has anti-inflammatory properties that help in reducing inflammation caused by skin dryness. Jojoba oil has anti-microbial properties and contains iodine that prevent harmful bacteria growth, which otherwise causes pimples, blackheads, and acne breakouts.
Coconut Oil is great for dried cracked skin. It holds in the moisture that your skin needs to rehydrate itself. It has Vitamin E and Protein that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well. Coconut oil protects the skin against microbial infections.
Earwax is one of those problems that everyone has, but a lot of people don’t know how to deal with it properly. They use the Q-tip method that they were taught to use and that there parents use. This is the most popular method and is also the most damaging to the ear. But because it is so easy to use people continue to do it regardless of the risks involved. To start off, let me bore you for a minute and explain the importance of ear wax and why we produce it.
The human body produces earwax as a protective measure to keep out bacteria, dirt, dust and bugs. Earwax sometimes is produced either too little or too much and we can feel the effects of that. When your ear produces too little earwax, you really won’t notice a difference. You may however be prone to sinus infections, allergies or in rare cases chronic ear infections (these can also be due to too much earwax as well). When your ear produces too much earwax however, that is a different story.
Symptoms of too much/impacted earwax are:

When used properly, the benefits of ear candling may include:
Do You Have An Omega-3 Deficiency?
You may be deficient in omega-3 if you have frequent earwax buildup.
Frequent excess buildup of earwax can oftentimes be traced back to an omega-3 deficiency, so the remedy is quite simple: take a high-quality, animal-based omega-3 supplement. Once you've cleared out any excess buildup or impaction, making sure you're getting sufficient amounts of omega-3 will normally prevent a recurrence. If the earwax buildup does return, it's a clue that you may still have a serious omega-3 deficiency.
How to Prevent Excess Earwax Blockage?
Everyone has a different brand of deodorant that they use and everyone loves the one that they use because it works for them. You’re not wrong in thinking that they work, because they do work. However, they are not safe. Most deodorants have toxins and chemicals in them that are not healthy for your body.
Here is a list of the 8 most common toxins and chemicals hiding in your deodorant:
1) Parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyl, and butyl) have been linked to breast cancer.
Parabens are a very common ingredient that is found in almost every cosmetic product. During a study done in 2004, parabens have been linked to breast cancer. They are said to disturb the body’s hormonal balance and to mimic estrogen, as estrogen is said to play a part in breast cancer formation.
2) Aluminum Compounds (Aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly) have been linked to breast cancer.
Aluminum compounds within deodorants act as a plug within the sweat ducts and temporarily stop the flow of sweat. However, these compounds can be absorbed by your skin. Just as the parabens, these compounds can mimic estrogen, which promote growth of breast cancer cells.
3) Silica has been linked to cancer, allergies and immunotoxicity.
Silica is a known skin irritant, it may also be contaminated with crystalline quartz which is a carcinogen (proven capable of causing cancer).
4) Triclosan has been linked to skin irritation, contact dermatitis and cancer.
Triclosan is another ingredient that can irritate your skin and cause contact dermatitis. Your body contains good as well as bad bacteria, but triclosan kills both. The FDA classifies triclosan as a pesticide, while the IARC has it listed as a possible carcinogen.
5) Talc has been linked to cancer.
IARC claims that if Talc contains asbestiform fibers, then it is considered a carcinogen. The quantity of asbestiform fibers in deodorants is unclear as it is not regulated in cosmetic products.
6) Propylene Glycol has been linked to delayed allergic reactions, possible kidney and liver damage.
7) Steareth-n has been linked to cancer.
The “n” stands for a number. So the label may say for example, steareth-7 (which is one of the most common ones in beauty products). It is actually derived from vegetables, but it is reacted with a known carcinogen, ethylene oxide.
8) Synthetic Fragrance has been linked to skin irritation, harmful to the environment, allergies and organ system toxicity.
Considering all this, is your deodorant safe? Are there any hidden chemicals hiding in it? What if I told you, you don’t have to put up with chemicals and toxins in your daily care regimen! Would you believe me? The fact is that it is true, there are other alternatives. It requires some effort on your part, but it can be done.
Here is my favorite recipe for deodorant:
You will need:
Mix together all dry ingredients than blend each oil, individually, into the mixture. Mixture will become a creamy texture. Pour into container(s) and cover. Mixture will harder over time. If using deodorant containers apply as usual. If using small container, scoop up a bit with your two main fingers, hold it against your armpit for a second (so it melts a little for easier application) then rub around in a circular motion.
