tweet Handsome young man in bed

Growing a mustache in the month of  November (as part of a cancer awareness program for guys) has been popular for the past couple of years, but now more and more American men are growing facial hair (beards and mustaches) all the year round - as a fashion and style statement.  Big corporations are even hiring models with beards for their advertising campaigns.  Do you want to grow a beard? Just like any other fashion statement, growing a beard can require some ...

tweet Bagno verde con doccia spaziosa e lavandino

Bathrooms can be hot and steamy places and, while that may be a good thing to get rid of impurities in the skin, it can cause havoc on the room's ventilation - especially if there is no window to the outdoors. And we all know how much damage mold and mildew can do to your home and your possessions.  It makes no difference to the problem whether you choose to bath or to shower. What can you do to improve the ...

What could be worse (especially when you are a non smoker) than to take over an apartment, house or a vehicle where the previous owner or tenant was a smoker and the evidence is all too obvious. But don't despair, there are many solutions Preferably, these should be carried out before you even move in but I realize that this is not always practical. The ideal scenario is warm sunny weather and an empty property. Do not be tempted to use ...

  Whether you call them fava beans (USA) or broad beans (UK) these large, flattened light green pods are usually eaten shelled for their delicious flavor and considerable health benefits. Evidence has been found of their cultivation since at least 4500 BC while today they are grown all over the world with China being top of the list. Although usually just the shelled beans are eaten, if harvested when still really young, the pods may also be eaten as well as the ...

tweet Durbanville garden-59

Named after the doctor who first described the condition, Parkinson's disease (or PD) is a chronic disorder affecting how the brain co-ordinates the movements of the muscles in various parts of the body.   The disease is caused by the slow deterioration of those nerve cells in the brain which create dopamine. Dopamine is a natural substance.  It is found in the brain and helps control muscle movement throughout the body. In recent years, at least 3 friends have been diagnosed with ...

(Image courtesy of http://chefhermes.com/rhubarb-rhubarb-rhubarb/) This is the time of the year in the northern hemisphere when rhubarb is growing profusely and, though this is described as a vegetable, it is mostly used for fruity desserts. Since moving to the countryside in England, we have taken on an allotment (part of a communal garden) and every plot boasts its own rhubarb patch so we have been given many bunches of these stalks, ensuring that we bake plenty of rhubarb and apple crumbles! The redder ...

tweet blog image - celeriac plants large

Recently we were given some celeriac by a friend who had grown it in her veggie garden. We peeled and cooked it before mashing with some butter and soy sauce and serving. With its hint of celery and subtle nutty taste, it was delicious. It was the first time we had ever tasted it but certainly won't be the last. What is celeriac? Celeriac, also called turnip-rooted celery or knob celery, is a variety of celery cultivated mainly for its edible round ...

Sunning & Palming For Your Eye Health | Amoils.com

tweet blog image - sunning sunlight

I have come across a new and effective technique for your eye health and it is known as “sunning”.  This method helps to accustom your eyes to light and goes hand in hand with another technique known as “palming” which in turn accustoms your eyes to the dark. Your eyes are natural light receptors which are constructed to respond to light but if you work indoors, and particularly in a windowless and artificially lit area, your eyes are almost certainly not ...

Most would hardly give Epsom salts a second thought but they are surprisingly full of health benefits. The salt is named for a salty spring at Epsom in Surrey (in the UK), and not too far from where I now live. In fact Epsom salts are not a salt at all but a 100% natural pure mineral, comprising magnesium and sulfate. Why do we need magnesium and sulfates? It is now known that both magnesium and sulfate are readily absorbed through the ...

How About Reducing Your Carbon Footprint For Lent? | Amoils.com

tweet blog image - water-bottle-waste

Even those who are not particularly religious will often give up something for Lent and, this week, the call here in the UK has been not to give up beer or chocolates but to make it a carbon themed sacrifice instead. We are only a couple of days into Lent so there is still plenty of time to make that decision and to keep it up for the next 40 plus days until Easter. It is said that a habit can ...
