Ok, for I had fun with the Gotu Kola Infusion, and it looks so nice sitting on the sill in the sun I just had to try a few more!
This time I'm playing with some organic dried and cut Parsley and Clove herbs I picked up from the local market. I'm going to do the same procedure as I did with the Gotu Kola;
Take a jar, fill it 2/3 with cut herb.
Fill almost to the top with my carrier oil (my choice is liquid Organic Coconut Oil)
Sit in in a sunny sill for about 3-4 weeks shaking to mix once about every 2-3 days.
This is what I learned;
Parsley is so good for way to many things to list them all so I just ask you to Google it for your self!
But, I will highlight a few reasons I am using it...
Parsley is high in vitamin C, vitamin K, a good source for vitamin B and potassium, folic acid, iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin A, and chlorophyll.
Responsible for photosynthesis, chlorophyll is essentially the life-blood of plants, similar to our own hemoglobin and is what gives plants their green color.
In humans, chlorophyll has the action of breaking down carbon dioxide and releasing free oxygen in the body, helping to inhibit harmful bacteria and toxins. Natural, plant-based chlorophyll can support healing, oxygenation of the body, building healthy blood, cleansing the blood and detoxing.
The high amount of Vitamin C in parsley nourishes the skin from within to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Parsley stimulates the production of collagen in the skin and promotes cell reproduction and repair. This leads to faster growth of new skin which results in blemish-free, even and smooth skin.Crushed parsley, applied topically, is a simple remedy for skin discoloration and puffiness, that you can easily make and use at home.
There are several nutrients in parsley, such as vitamin C, chlorophyll, vitamin K and various volatile oils, that are suggested to be responsible for its skin lightening and puffiness reducing qualities.
With a towel over your pillow, place a moist but not dripping parsley infused rag over the skin under your eyes (but not on the eyes themselves) for at least 10 minutes. This is a simple way to use parsley for dark circles under the eyes and getting rid of eye bag puffiness and discoloration.
The active component of cloves is eugenol oil. This oil makes up 60-90% of each clove and has long been thought to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. This oil also acts as an antiseptic, anesthetic, digestive stimulant expectorant, aromatic, antispasmodic, astringent and accounts for its various uses.
The predominant chemical constituents found in all three types of clove oils are eugenol, eugenyl acetate, and caryophyllene. However, these three types all vary in their eugenol content. For instance, clove leaf oil contains very low levels of eugenol, compared to clove bud oil. Oil derived from the clove stem contains the highest amount of the compound, which makes it unsuitable for external applications.
Clove is rich in minerals such as calcium, hydrochloric acid, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and vitamin A and vitamin C.
Many people have suggested that clove oil is extremely beneficial in increasing breast size in a quick and effective manner as it increases the circulation of blood bringing more nutrients and better absorption into the breast tissues.
This oil works best when mixed with the extracts of ginger which can be found in any naturopath’s store.
Use more of ginger extracts and less of the oil. You will see that your breasts have started growing in just 8 to 10 weeks.
An aid for skin disorders, When applied topically, clove buds can help address skin problems like warts, acne, sagging skin, and wrinkles. The effects are best achieved when the oil is used in liquid form and spread on a clean, dry skin. You will find it in many products for lessening the effects of aging, like wrinkles, sagging skin, and facial rejuvenation for the eyes because of its rejuvenating and stimulating properties, which can increase blood flow to unhealthy skin.
