You’d Never Have Thought That This Oil Provides Full-Body Benefits! Parul Gupta
23 Jun 2017Array min read

Who would’ve thought an oil could do so much?

This white-flowered herbal plant has its origins in the Mediterranean region. It was introduced to the world by the Romans and the Egyptians, and its oil has gained immense popularity as an essential and an aromatherapy oil. Anise oil is extracted from the herbal plant anise, or aniseed, using steam distillation. This liquorice-flavoured oil has a variety of uses, ranging from cooking to medication. Here, we list a few benefits of this oil for your entire body.

Benefits of anise oil:

  • Battle bronchitis – Anise essential oil is used in diffusers and inhalers to loosen mucus, and to ease breathing issues and asthma. It works as an expectorant, and helps relieve congestion and phlegm. Did you know that in some cases, a few whiffs of the oil are more effective than ingesting it?
  • Boost breast milk – Anise oil has oestrogenic properties, and promotes breast milk production. Tea that is brewed with a few drops of anise oil helps increase lactation. However, it has been known to cause miscarriages, and pregnant women should avoid using it.
  • Antispasmodic – Spasms are painful contractions of the respiratory tract, or of muscles that cause severe cough, cramps, or pain in the stomach and chest. Anise oil, when rubbed into the skin, helps reduce and calm down the spasms, and relax the muscles.
  • Digestion – It’s an old custom in India to chew on anise seeds after a meal. It helps with digestion, bloating, and flatulence. Drinking warm water with a few drops of anise essential oil helps release any trapped gas, giving instant relief.
  • Anti-epileptic – Anise oil is known for its narcotic and sedative properties. The use of this oil slows down blood circulation and respiration. It is administered quite frequently to control hysteria or an epileptic attack. However, talk to your doctor before using this on children, since it has a narcotic effect.
  • Antiseptic – When used on open wounds and bruises, it creates a protective layer over the wound. Anise oil helps speed up the healing process, and has strong antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
  • Increase in libido – Anise is known to have aphrodisiac properties. Drinking a glass of water infused with anise oil can help increase one’s libido. You should know that herb-based libido enhancers don’t produce instant results, but increase a person’s sex drive over a period of time.
  • Deworming agent – Anise oil is an excellent natural deworming agent, especially for children. Due to its insecticidal properties, anise oil is prescribed by alternate medicine practitioners. It is very effective in killing worms found in the intestines.

Anise oil can cause allergic reactions, so please check with a health expert before you start using it. Another thing to remember is to never apply an essential oil directly to your skin, since these oils are extremely potent. Always dilute it with a carrier oil like almond oil or olive oil, before application.

These Easy Home Remedies Will Really Help Your Eczema Mansi Kohli
14 Jun 2017Array min read

Eczema can be a huge blow to your confidence, body image, and overall happiness. But remember, how you think and what you do is what truly makes you beautiful. And what you do is fight and never give up. Here are a few home remedies to go with that spirit.

Another name for dermatitis is eczema, which is a dry skin condition. It is quite individualistic in its nature and differs from from one person to the next. Eczema isn’t contagious, so if someone suffering from it touches you, you won’t be affected.

Symptoms

Through the naked eye, if the skin seems to be scaly, itchy, red, and dry, the patient then has a mild form of eczema. Severe cases of eczema entail bleeding, crusting, weeping and splitting of the skin, and the worst cases have skin that is split open and has contracted infection.

Causes

To understand the concept and how it happens, we should first know about the difference between skin that is healthy and skin that has been affected by eczema. Since school days, we have learnt that the skin is a natural barrier from irritants, pollution, elements, and infection. There are 3 layers to the skin – outer, elastic, and the fatty layer – top, middle, and the deepest, respectively; each with skin, water, and fat cells of their own that help keep the skin in its prime.

Healthy skin cells are plump, with enough water in them that protect the body from infection and damages. Oils and fats in the middle help keep the moisture levels intact, and the body temperature constant. In addition to that, it is this layer which doesn’t allow bacteria, virus, and harmful elements to enter into the body.

As mentioned, skin that is attacked by pollution, chemicals, irritants, bacteria, fungi, and virus can lead to various infections and diseases, should the body’s defense – skin, not be in a position to combat them all. Keeping that in mind, with eczema, although the exact cause is unknown, our skin turns unhealthy because of the overactive response of the immune system to a certain irritant. When the overactive response happens, the skin gets diseased or infected, and sometimes through allergies as well, eczema is known to attack the skin, paralysing the body’s sole defense system – skin!

Think of your skin as a wall that surrounds the fortress, with the outer layer being the large bricks, and the middle and deepest layers being the small bricks, with cement and sand holding the skin together and protecting the body at large.

There are a few natural ways to heal eczema at home, including:

  • Cool the itch with ice cold milk or curd – For this, you will need a clean cotton cloth dipped into a bowl of ice-cold milk or sour curd. Apply the cloth onto the moderately affected zones several times a day, and compress the zones for relief and comfort. Wait for a minute or so before washing off under cold water, and then apply calamine lotion. This helps reduce the itchiness, and dries the rash out as well.
  • Massage the area with coconut oil – Take a tablespoon of cool coconut oil and gently massage the area with it for a minute. The oil will soak into the skin, and fill in the voids that have opened up within the intercellular space. In doing so, the space gets filled with moisture, and the fats from the oil help reduce the drying of the skin, providing relief from itching.
  • Dab a little raw, organic honey – If your skin is infected with moderate to severe eczema, chances are you’re tempted to itch and scratch it more. To help prevent this from happening, you can apply a tablespoon of honey on to the affected area, to help heal the skin. Honey has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties which can heal itchy, broken, and dry skin effectively. Honey is also a natural humectant that helps bring moisture into the skin.
  • Olive oil and cornstarch – Mix a tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of olive oil to form a paste. Apply the paste on the eczema-affected areas and wait for 10 minutes, or till it dries. Wash off under cold water, and use calamine lotion to help heal the area and dry out the rash. This should be done daily until the condition starts clearing off.

Do speak with your doctor first to ascertain which stage of eczema you are suffering from, before trying any of these natural home remedies.

Research Proves Whole-Fat Dairy Better For Weight Management And Diabetes Than Low-Fat Dairy Silky Wadhwa
19 Jun 2017Array min read

We know you just went,”WHAT?!” and it’s only natural.

When in the process of losing weight, the one thing that comes under fire is your dairy consumption. ‘How many cups of tea/coffee do you drink in a day?’, ‘3 cups are a lot…maybe you should shift to skimmed milk’, and ‘Who drinks whole milk these days? I only have toned milk’ are but some of the things one hears often. It is commonly believed that full-fat dairy will make you gain weight faster, and will bring with it a multitude of diseases. Skim, toned, and low-fat are the prevailing buzzwords when it comes to dairy.

However, new research shows that we might need to rethink our stand on whole milk and other full-fat dairy products. A study, conducted on 3,333 adults, and published in the journal Circulation, found that not only is the ‘weight gain from full-fat dairy’ theory a miss, but also that people who consume full-fat dairy and products made from it have a 46 per cent lower risk of developing diabetes. It was taken for granted since many years that since whole milk contains more calories that low-fat milk, it would mean a higher chance of diabetes as well. In actuality, studies have found that consuming lesser fat is related to an increase in the consumption of sugar-laden or carb-laden products, which means a higher chance of diabetes than if you’d just stuck to good fats, such as those in full-fat dairy.

At the moment, the reasons for the link between full-fat dairy and a lower chance of developing diabetes have not been established. However, it is believed that whole fat helps regulate insulin and glucose. Satiety due to full-fat dairy is being considered as a possible factor, as is the possibility that these fats may be helping the liver to break down the sugar in the food consumed. Another likelihood is that the microbes in fermented dairy products may be helping improve insulin response as well.

Another study, conducted with more than 18,000 women, and published in the American Journal of Nutrition, found that consumption of high-fat dairy led to a decrease of obesity in these women by 8 per cent. Shocking, especially when you compare it to what people currently accept as true, isn’t it?

It is clear that low-fat dairy has little to no benefits, while whole-fat dairy does. None of this, however, is to say that one can consume unrestricted amounts of whole-fat dairy, especially if diabetes risk is a concern. Like everything else, moderation is key.

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
