The “Miracle” oil? Bacteria Free from Head to Toe!

Last week, I wrote a review regarding the Tea Tree line of products from The Body Shop. I got really curious of what else Tea Tree can benefit our body. I’ve read a lot of articles and I got really excited of the results of my research! But first, let me tell you …


WHAT IS TEA TREE OIL?

Tea tree oil has become very popular worldwide. It became a very famous ingredient to those beauty products that you can see at the stores near you. Not only among the beauty products but also it became an ingredient to other household cleaning products since it has antiseptic properties.

Don’t get it wrong. Tea Tree is different from those tea plant extracts (Camellia Sinensis) which are shrubs or small trees whose leaves and leaf buds are used to produce tea. Tea Tree or is also known as Melalenca alternifolia. As my research states, this plant was originally discovered along streams and swampy areas in the native land of Australia. After a few decades, after a lot of researches and medical studies, it has been stated that Tea Tree has a lot good heath benefits.

 I will state to you it’s benefits for the body/health. Excited? I AM!


  1. PERFECT CURE FOR ACNE

If you are searching for some home remedies that you can use to cure acne, then you can try Tea Tree oil! Some medical studies and researches states that 5% Tea Tree oil gel has the same effect as the famous Benzoyl Peroxide that are being used in curing acne except that it doesn’t irritate your face that much unlike the side effects of Benzoyl Peroxide. Much better right?

You can also use it as a facial wash by just mixing a few drops of Tea tree essential oil with honey. Simply rub it on your face then rinse off. There are actually more ways to use it on your face. You can check a lot tutorials online to do perfect homemade remedies that you can try on.

Aside from those, you can already buy it ready made in the market like the products from The Body Shop which I previously made review on.


2. WHY NOT PUT SOME ON YOUR HAIR?

Studies shows that some shampoos or other products that we are using on our hair has been proven to have some harmful chemicals that can damage our hair or worse, can cause hair loss. Who would want that? Tea Tree can be a best non-damaging miracle alternative for your hair.

Since it has that antiseptic property, it can be used for removing those fungus or any kind of bacteria that may cause itchy and flaky scalp which, as we may all know, very irritating and may also cause hair loss. Say goodbye to hair lice, too!


3. GIVE SOME MORE CARE FOR YOUR NAILS

Girls just love their nails so much that sometimes they will make them long even though it will be hard for them to do some things like to use the keyboard, etc. I myself likes making my nails long too but sometimes it’s just not strong enough or it doesn’t look good because of those flaky skin edges so in the end, I will just cut it short.  Another use for our miracle oil which is also rich in softening contents. It can be a fighting agent for those cracked corners and can make your nails stronger too!


4. TREAT YOUR WOUNDS AND OTHER SKIN PROBLEMS WELL

Since the miracle Tea Tree Oil has antiseptic properties, then it is of good use in curing wounds. Minor cuts and abrasions can benefit from the antimicrobial action of tea tree oil, which cleanses the area and wards off infection. Aside from those simple wounds, Tea Tree can also treats other skin infections like Psoriasis. Psoriasis is characterized by “plaques”, or areas of red, scaly sometimes inflamed skin. These areas develop when skin production is faster than the body’s ability to shed it. There is no cure for psoriasis, but there are things you can do to ease the discomfort and possibly speed the healing of the effective area and one of this is using Tea Tree Oil.

5. SAY NO TO BAD BREATH AND SORE THROAT

Among all the articles that I’ve read, I always find this one and I think this benefit is very useful. Tea tree oil has the ability to kill off bad bacteria it can be a perfect ingredient in homemade toothpaste and mouthwash. It’s been shown to reduce the bleeding of gums and tooth decay.

Aside from that, it can also help cure sore throat. Tea tree oil can help with some inflammation of the mucous membranes, which contributes to the sore throat, but most importantly it can help fight off an infection. You can just use it as a gargle, just put one drop with water.


6. DIY DEODORANT

Bad bacteria causes body odor. We have those kinds of bacteria on our underarms and genitals which causes bad smell especially on our puberty stage. That is why we are using deodorants to avoid those bad smells. But some deodorants contains chemicals which are harmful on the skin. They causes dark underarms or sometimes makes it itchy. So sometimes it is better to use natural products.


7. Tea Tree Oil for Toenail Fungus and Ringworm
Since it has the ability to kill parasites and bacteria (a statement which I already told you guys for a lot of times already in this posts), it is also can be used to kill toenail fungus, athlete’s foot and ringworm.

There are a lot more of benefits that a tea tree oil can give you. It is very useful! Try searching online of some ingredients that you can mix with tea tree oil for better benefits and results! 

That’s it for today. I hope this post will be very useful for you guys!

5 things that made me smile this week #4 |May 20, 2017|

It’s been a month since I started giving you 5 reasons why I am smiling every week. Sometimes I find it hard to think of anything that makes me smile. Sometimes there’s nothing  really but just simple gestures from my friends and family that keeps my day going, especially on the most stressful days of my life. Believe me or not, I have those days. That is why I think you should always count those reasons why you are happy or smiling because that makes you have the reason to continue living. Those gestures can help you get through every difficulties you are experiencing in your life.

Enough with the blah blah, I will state to you the five things that made me smile the past days.

Happy pill #1

So yes, I am still sick. That is why I thought I will be bed ridden the whole week but luckily, No. I was being forced by my mom and my friends to go to the hospital and check with a Pulmonologist or Cardiologist because of some reason that most of you will not understand so I should better not tell anybody *Hides*. And so I did. I visited the hospital and check with a Pulmonology doctor and ask if I have any problem with my respiratory tract. So what made me smile? NEGATIVE! They told me there is nothing to worry about anything. The Doctor just prescribed me some medicine and that’s it.

Happy pill #2

I received another gift! It’s raining gift this month, don’t you think?

Happy pill #3

You’ll know who your real friends are when you are in crisis. Someone will always know if you are having some problems or not. Just a simple question by them asking if you’re okay or not can make the feeling a little bit lighter. Those kind of friends are worth keeping.

Happy pill #4

I don’t usually get compliments with my voice. Rarely do I hear people saying good things about it. Maybe because they got used to it already or something like that. But these week I heard a very nice compliment from a professional guitarist. Who wouldn’t feel happy hearing some good words from a professional musician?

Since I gave you six last week, can you forgive me for giving only 4 to you this time? haha I ready had a rough week so I can’t give you one more than this!

Even though keep the good vibes everyone! Things will get better eventually.

The Body Shop Skin Care Tea Tree line

snapseed-4

Since the 14th of April, I’ve started using these products from The Body Shop. When I came in the store, as usual there will be somebody who will accommodate you immediately and ask what you you’re looking for. They will also ask you your problem then they will try to give you a solution. They’re like a dermatologist while selling these beauty products.

I actually came inside the store looking for something else. I was being told that they are offering vitamin C serum which I wanted to try since a long time ago. You are all aware about my acne problems, but when you look at my face the acne marks are dominant than the acne itself. Sometimes it’s red too much which makes my face looks like I have too much acne but apparently I only have 3 (Yes, I used the word only). Then I did some research and heard that Vitamin C Serum are good to reduce the marks. So I wanted to try it but they offered products from different line.

I was being told that Vitamin C are really good for brightening but at the same time is harsh for the skin especially that I am prone to acne. They told me not to use it first rather I should use something which can get rid of my blemishes first. So they give me these line of products which consist of Tea Tree ingredients.

I will review each four products for you guys.

img_1032

Product 1: Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser

The first step with every skin routine is cleansing. Of course you have to wash your face first. Remove all the dirt, remove all the make up then get ready for the next regimen. They offered me two types of cleansers which they said have same ingredients only except that the other one is gel and the other one is foam which is the one that I have. I love the foam type since with just two pumps it can wash my whole face already. It gives you that cold feeling on your face. I love the feeling. I only use BB cream as what I have said on my post before and what I can say is that it can easily remove what’s on my face.

Product 2:  3-in-1 Wash Scrub Mask 

It’s very rare for me to use scrub on my face which is based on my research must be done at least 1-2 times to remove dead skin cells. Since it’s part of the promo I took this one. I am only using it once or whenever I want to but it felt very fresh on my face. It can be used as a mask too aside from for cleansing and scrub. I tried putting on the mask for more than 5 minutes but I think if you left it on your face for more than 5 minutes it will start to feel hot on the face especially the one under the nose but maybe just because of the breathing haha.

Product 3: Skin Clearing Mattifying toner

Toner comes after cleansing the face. If there’s any dirt of make up left on your face that the cleansing foam wasn’t able to remove then it’s a perfect solution. Aside form this purpose, a toner soothes, repairs, and smooths the skin’s surface it diminishes the blemishes and minimizing the signs of redness and inflammation. What I like about this product is it’s mattifying attribute. It will leave your face fresh and clean. Unlike my experience with other toner products this toner doesn’t make my face oily. It’s not that harsh on my skin too because of it’s organic ingredients.

Product 4: Skin Clearing Daily Solution

The last but not the least is my Skin Clearing Daily Solution. This is really my favorite among the four. And it was also part of my April Favorites! What I like about this product is that it’s very lightweight. Though the consistency is like oil (but it is not oil It’s a serum) it is easily absorbed by the skin and leave a matte finish. Like you did not put anything at all except that the skin looks healthier.

 

Pros

  • Super lightweight
  • It feels cool on the face
  • It will make your face feel fresh and healthier
  • The smell is very nice
  • Organic Ingredients!
  • It’s not that expensive compared to the other The Body Shop‘s line of skin products
  • Packaging looks very pro. Also, I like it that they put it on pump

Cons

  • Packaging is nice but they’re heavy. Especially the bottle ones

Summary

I really love the product! I am actually reaching the stage of buying another set but I am still thinking if I should, or I should try something else because my pimples are not yet cured as they promised. But I am still loving it because it leaves my face looks healthier than usual. It’s not dry and not oily. It also feels good on my face. Can anybody give me suggestion if I should continue using the products or should I change it. If I need to change it can you suggest some products?

I hope you enjoy this review!

Monday thoughts #4 : I want to travel the world, but first…?

Maybe the places on these pictures looks very familiar for you, guys. Maybe you’ve been there. But I have only seen it on pictures. I haven’t been anywhere! It’s my ultimate dream to travel the whole world. These are just some of the few countries I wish to visit before I reach the age of 30. But there’s a lot more, they’re just too much to be mentioned one by one. Nobody can deny the beauty of our world. It’s too beautiful not to be seen by our naked eyes.

Somebody once told me, “Stand up and go somewhere nice and beautiful. Travel and see the world while you still can because after 20 years, you will not regret the things that you did, but the things that you did not do.” Which I thought is true.

So by then I’ve decided. I want to see the whole world with my own eyes. I want to meet different people and try to understand their culture. I want to share our own culture as well. I want to travel and be on different places before I cant do it anymore then in the future, I can look at my pictures and I can say,

Ive been there. Ive understood the people. Not by their language but by their culture. For a few days  i felt what they are feeling. It was a bit strange but those days, i somehow felt more alive.

Ive been there. I have witnessed the beauty of that place. Thank God for His wonderful creation. A creation which is made by love and must be a subject of the people’s love too. For a moment I thought I saw a glimpse of heaven, but i somehow felt more alive.”

But…..

I told you guys, I have never been anywhere!!! I’ve never even travelled my own country!

Hello hello hello Philippines! As far as you may know, Philippines are rich of beautiful places that you could visit. Nature is our big trend! But who am I to say these things wherein fact I did not yet visit any of these places. Then i thought, if I want to travel the world, I should at least travel around my country first right?

For sure I will!! And I believe I will be starting in a few months. Kung may kabayan readers diyan! Any suggestions of places sa unang gala ko sa pinas? Comment below!

Ps: I was supposed to post this last night but something came up. I hope you guys understand!

5 things that made me smile this week #3

Heyah all! (did I just typed that?)

Good day sweetpeeps~!

A lot of things had happened the past week and from being actively healthy and happy, I am here right now using inhaler and drinking medicine syrup for running rose and cough with additional ginger tea with lemon which is by the way really good for your throat. You should definitely drink it when you have sore throat and cough. But even though I am sick still there were a lot of things that happened the past week. Let me state to you 5 things that made me smile this week.

Happy pill #1 


It was just some time ago when I started to go jogging at the middle of the night. Since it has been a very long time since I last went jogging I hardly finish one lap without stopping. So for the first time in forever, I just finished one lap without stopping! One lap consists of 600 m I think. That was a small number for those of you who have good stamina. But for me, that’s an achievement unlocked!

Happy pill #2


I received another gift this week! and I super loved it. I got one super comfy shirt and one case for my mobile. The case have a super nice design. It was customized. She told me that I look like that cartoon. But I told her maybe I don’t have pimples and of I have long hair.

Happy pill #3

Movie galore + food trip with my gals. During the past weeks, I’ve been enjoying going on the other room to go eat dinner with my friends. Before i just stay in my room and sleep but I have been enjoying eating dinner with them. So last wednesday, they made melon with mango shake, cooked Fishball and Kikiam  then watched movie while eating. It was so fun!

Happy pill #4

My family and friends are really concerned about my health. Isn’t that a very nice happy pill. It feels so good when you have them while you’re sick. Somebody will take care of you when you’re to lazy to do something, like going to the hospital or drink meds (which I barely do even if I have fever).

Happy pill #5 

Being hooked is awesome! Not a cold nor cough can stop me from singing. I though I will perform really bad yesterday. But Thank you Lord for making me perform well! It was actually a better performance than last week. What really made me smile yesterday was the way the audience smile while I was singing. It makes me happy also when I can be able to sing their song requests. Especially when it was requested to be dedicated for someone.

So I guess for this week 5 happy pills ain’t enough so I will be adding one more!

Happy pill #6


Rowie and Rhapy’s First year Anniversary Party Part 2 Ft. Dusit Thani Hotel, Abu Dhabi. It was fun preparing for the party. Since it’s a surprise of Rowie to Rahp we helped her a lot with the things to be prepared at the hotel. It’s a Candle light dinner themed evening. We made a heart collage of their pictures and taped it on the window. They prepared the tables. The room was full of roses and candles. It was very beautiful! What’s the happy pill here? because of the love of friendship!

Monday thoughts #3 : What he meant when he said it

“I don’t want Music to be my job” I will not name him nor state my relationship with the person who said this line to me. But his line had left me too much question which I cannot answer for a very long time. I kept on asking him the reason why but he only answered me with a sly smile.

Then while I was walking on the streets going to the venue of my first ever legit paid gig, this line hit my head like an arrow crossed through my brain. I know it’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but believe me it’s something you might feel when you’re nervous or when you feel like your heart will burst out your chest. I was nervous.

I always love music and I always admire those artists that I can see perform on stage. People enjoy their music so much. These artists share their talents to everybody and inspire them. And so I was inspired. I always thought that behind those fun performances on stage, these artists also share the same smiles behind the curtains. I was jealous of that feeling and I want to feel the same way but I somehow feel differently that afternoon.

I was singing in front of a lot of people. I can see their smiles and that made me feel happy. They appreciate my voice and the way I performed. I shared my talent and that made them smile. I told myself, “That’s what exactly what you wish would happen” but at the same time the pressure entered the scene and made everything blurred. Only then did I realize what he meant when he said that phrase.

Music is a way to escape from reality. When you’re sad and you want to be alone, sometimes putting your headphones on and lock yourself inside your room can be the best solution. When your happy, playing some happy songs can add up to the mood. Others use songs to tell somebody what they really want to say that they can’t say by mere words. People make music as a tool for expressing what they really feel. Most of the songwriters write songs based on their experiences. That’s the beauty of music.

When you make music as your job, things will go a little bit different. You’re obliged to practice some songs even though you don’t want to sing it. You’ll be forced to go perform on stage even though you don’t feel like it or you’re tired. There will be deadlines for the songs you have to write if you are required to make an album. People will expect to see you smiling and happy always at the same time you want to have a good image for them. You have to inspire them. You have to entertain them. That’s part of your job and sometimes we might hate our job. That removes the fact that music can be your escape from reality. 

Now I have a new question which needs an answer. How can I make music as a tool for escaping from reality where in fact it became part of my reality?
