Recipes! – Uses for Aloe Vera Gel

  Adopt ALOE VERA GEL into your daily routine and see & feel the benefits in your skin and overall health! 

SKIN: Rich in VitE, anti-inflammatory, prevents and removes wrinkles, gives glowing and super hydrated skin. You can apply it to freshly washed and dried skin, let it sit for 15 min then wash off, great for redness and inflammation, acne, sunburns, blemishes, dry skin etc. HAIR: Cut a large piece, blend and apply to scalp and hair (best if freshly washed), let it sit for 15 min and wash out! Strengthens and grows dry, brittle hair because it’s rich in folic acid & B12! EATING: Blend in juices & smoothies. Consume fresh aloe on a daily basis and it can actually help the skin more from the inside out! Rich in B12 which is great for vegans, contains tons of trace minerals, helps repair the gut & aids in any digestive distress like bloating, constipation etc. I love to add it to my celery x cilantro juice first thing in the morning, and I also love to add it to freshly blended melon juice (add fresh mint for another dimension of flavour)!

Here’s a great skin and digestive nourishing recipe: BLEND •2cups fresh pineapple •1 cucumber •about 2″x2″ piece of fresh aloe and a bit of water and ice if you’d like! Enjoy all the nourishing and hydrating benefits! Pineapples are rich in digestive enzymes (great for gut repair) & vitamin C (great as a natural antihistamine & immune support). #eczemaholistichealing

Eczema Daily Checklist

I think it’s so so important to run down a little checklist  everyday to make sure that you’re doing all you can to allow your body to cleanse, heal & repair. •Sleeping for many hours each night is critical as our body’s can rest, fast and restore. •Drinking plenty of water allows us to be hydrated from the inside out, bathing our organs and letting us detox and cleanse. •”You are what you eat” for sure & looking at food as “is this going to aid in my healing or halt/hinder it?” is very important. Disease doesn’t thrive in an alkaline environment, that’s why I keep it plant based with my meals, super anti-inflammatory, cleansing and hydrating. •You MUST move your lymph and get exercise in everyday, it’s the sewer system the body. I like to just dance around or jump on a rebounder & do yoga! •Get some Vitamin D in your life and fresh, clean air. You need to be out in nature and connect with it, it can be so healing. •Make sure that you are going to the bathroom #2, daily! Our gut health is crucial to the state of our skin, our digestive system is our FIRST line of defense for detoxification, make sure it’s working optimally. •Dry brushing is great to stimulate our lymph system & slough off dead skin…it’s even a great method to put into practice instead of scratching. Only use natural emollients on the skin, always keep this rule of thumb, “if you can essentially eat it, you can apply it to the skin”. •Words of affirmation will get your mind right & keep your faith & hope strong in your healing journey. The words we say & think can heal us or hurt us, only speak loving words over yourself 💜 #eczemaholistichealing
