In case you were wondering, fruit flies are those pesky little flies that hover over ripe or fermenting #fruits
It often seems like fruit flies just appear out of nowhere but that's not the case. Truth is, when a fruit is overripe or starts to go bad it begins to ferment, producing alcohol, which attracts fruit flies. They can smell this from a mile away and get into the house to feed on this. They continue to gobble up the fermenting fruit, and in the process, lay hundreds of eggs which hatch into larvae in mere hours.
Very disgusting (the laying eggs part) and annoying! You can get rid of these pesky things with your #Bragg #applecidervinegar
. Simply pour some #acv
in a bottle / cup / bowl with a few drops of dish washing liquid. Cover the top of the bottle with cling film and poke holes on the cling film. The holes should be about the size of a chop stick.
Place this on your counter and the flies will be trapped in it.
Neat right! Let me know if you try this! 😉
The kids are at school, Netflix & my jammies are on, I’m going to crawl under the blankets & sip on my herbal tea & cough drops for the rest of the day ☕️🍵 or at least until 3 because that’s when I have to pick the kiddos up from school 😂. Anyone else have a case of the sickies? It’s finally caught up to me. No work for me today. Got some steroids in me & more meds to kick this virus 👊🏻. Is it hard for anyone else to just sit & do nothing? Even when you’re sick? Maybe it’s a momma thing 🤷🏻♀️I always have to do something during the day to make myself feel useful. Today I’m gonna force myself to lie down & rest my body. I can’t be sick for my Noah’s birthday this weekend 💚 what are your favorite home remedies for the sickies? 🤧🤒

Chickpea Tumeric Mask
I don't think there's a single Indian out there who doesn't know this mask. My mother applies it every now again using slightly different ingredients (like yoghurt instead of milk). I was reminded of it's benefits in a video by my fave @farahdhukai
♡ and I'm going to take on her challenge of using it twice a week for a month.
1 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp tumeric powder
1 tsp almond oil (can use coconut oil, argan oil or any natural organic oil of your choice.)
1/2 cup milk
Mix all together. Apply to face. When it is dry and hard to the touch, it's ready to be washed off. Best done in shower as it can get messy over a sink. This recipe makes enough for 4 uses. Store in fridge.
Benefits: this mask lightens, brightens, cleanses, combats dark spots, blemishes, acne, pigmentation, wrinkles and removes unwanted fine hairs. It helps to balance and restore the skin's natural pH level. It slows down the skin's aging process, heals dry skin and makes skin supple.
Fun fact: In Indian culture, a mixture of turmeric and chickpea flour is applied to the bride and groom before the wedding day, so they will have a golden glow on their skin (pithi). .
Disclaimer: Please warn all spouses/family members that your mask is in the fridge and it's NOT custard 🤣🤣🤣

Can apple cider vinegar help with fevers? I was down and out for the past five days with a fever and a cough. (Back to school always seems to bring some nasty viruses into play and this year was no exception.) As I don't currently have health insurance, I turned to home remedies to get through this latest child zombie outbreak. That meant lots of apple cider vinegar. And, of course, my boyfriend shoving water my way every 5 seconds. Not only did the ACV help boost my immunity to fight this thing off, it also replaced lost vitamins and minerals. And yes, it also lowered my fever. I took my temperature prior to taking and apple cider vinegar shot and it was 102.2. An hour after the ACV shot, my fever was at 101.4. Also Vermont Villages ACV shots are amazing. I love them. And the honey is a great home remedy too. My favorites are the turmeric and ginger. #homeremedies #applecidervinegar #acv #fever #naturalalternatives #healthandwellness #turmeric #honey #ginger

... our son had gotten #impetigo
!) inside his nose, some months back. Here in #thenetherlands
, the family doctor (#gp
) is often much less keen to prescribe #antibiotics
, etc... She had given him the advice to not poke it and see if his own body could fight it off, and it did. There are #prosandcons
to this, but in general I am very much in favour of seeing if the body can develop its own strong #immunesystem
. (Disclaimer: this is an anecdote. You cannot rely on it. Seek professional care for yourself and your child!) This past Saturday night (worst time!) he told me the bleeding and itching in his nostril had started again, so I looked up what might help and found
www.healthline : #NaturalRemedies
for impetigo. I had many of the ingredients and made this paste from three:
1/2 tsp #rawhoney
1/2 tsp #turmeric
1 drop #teatreeoil
I smeared it into his nose, and, thank goodness, it stopped the itching. He sighed and said: I feel it working! After three treatments, one before bed, morning, and once again Sunday night, his symptoms are gone. #threecheers
for a bit of #witch #commonsense

I've used the @thevictoriangarden_skin
cleansing milk and day cream for about 3 months now.
I quite like the smell but my hubby used it once and said it reminded him of a funeral (chamomile scent) 🤣. The packaging was smaller than expected but it lasted 3 months.
Verdict: It hasn't made any significant difference to my skin. It didn't cause breakouts but didn't stop any breakouts either, it didn't help my skin or make it better in any way and it didn't keep it hydrated.
Also, after washing my face with the cleansing milk, I still found a lot of makeup/dirt/residue left on my skin. This is actually a big no no for me because I don't want to use too many products on my skin and overwork it as it's dry. With this, I have to wash my face twice and still use makeup remover and toner and the makeup eraser cloth to get light makeup off my skin! Totally unacceptable.
Having said this, everyone's skin is different and perhaps this product isn't made for mine.
Still on the hunt for the perfect organic products 🌻
Blue Tansy is from an annual yellow-flowered Mediterranean plant found in northern Morocco. The oil is known for its skin-soothing benefits and for its power to uplift moods.
