Home Remedies (Gharelu upchaar)
« on: December 16, 2016, 05:10:55 am »
ACNE, BLACKHEADS, AND PIMPLES:

Dab a small amount of toothpaste (paste, not gel) on pimples before bed; this helps dry out the pimples.

Mix equal amounts of lemon juice and rose water, apply to face with a cotton ball, and allow to set for 30 minutes before rinsing. 15-20 days of this application helps cure pimples and also helps to remove blemishes and scars.

Apply fresh lemon juice on the affected area overnight. Wash it off with warm water next morning.

For acne that hasn't seemed to respond to anything, steep 2-3 tsp. dried basil leaves in 1 cup boiling water for 10-20 minutes, cool, and apply to affected area with a cotton ball.

 

 

BAD BREATH:

Boil some cinnamon bark in a cup of water. Store it in a clean bottle in your bathroom. Use it as a mouthwash frequently.

Parsley leaves are rich in chlorophyll, nature's own deodorizer. Chew some leaves regularly and your breath will remain fresh.

You can chew some cardamom seeds to sweeten your breath.

 

 

DAMAGED, DRY HAIR:

 

A nourishing conditioner for dry or damaged hair, which can be used for all hair types: Separate the white of an egg from the yolk, whip it to a peak. Add 1 Tbsp. water to the yolk and blend until the mixture is creamy. Then mix the white and yolk together. Wet your hair with warm water, remove the excess moisture, and apply the mixture to your scalp with your fingertips. Massage gently until the froth is worked into your scalp, and then rinse the hair with cool water. Keep applying the mixture until it is used up and then rinsed until all of the egg is washed away.

 

 

DANDRUFF:

Pour distilled white vinegar onto the hair, as close to the scalp as you can manage; massage into the scalp; and allow to dry for several minutes before washing as usual. Repeat daily until the dandruff disappears, usually within a few days.

 

 

HAIR LIGHTENER:

To lighten hair, use 1/4 cup chopped fresh rhubarb to 2 cups boiling water. Cool, strain, and apply as a rinse.

 

 

GUM IN HAIR:

Soak the gum-coated hair in CokeĀ® and it should wipe out easily.

 

 

DARK CIRCLES AROUND EYES:

Make a paste out of 1 tsp. tomato juice, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, a pinch of turmeric powder, and 1 tsp. of flour. Apply around eyes. Leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing.

 

 

DRY SKIN:

Combine 1-cup oatmeal, 1-cup warm water, 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract, and 1/2-cup baking soda in a blender or food processor until you have a smooth paste. Pour this paste under the running water while drawing the bath. Very soothing to dry, itchy skin.

 

 

OILY SKIN:

For oily skin, mix 1/2 cup cooked oatmeal, 1 egg white, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, and 1/2 cup mashed apple into a smooth paste. Apply to face and leave on 15 minutes. Rinse.

 

 

SUNBURN:

Mix 2 tsp. tomato juice and 1/4 cup buttermilk. Apply to affected area. Rinse after 1/2 hour.

 

 

FACIAL CLEANSER:

Mix 2Tbsp. cornstarch, 2Tbsp. glycerin, and 1/2-cup water until smooth. Heat in a small pan placed in a water bath inside another pan. Heat until thick and clear; it will have the consistency of pudding. Do not boil. Cool completely, Use in place of soap to cleanse your skin. (If mixture is too thick, you may thin it by adding a little water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until you reach the desired consistency.)

 

 

WRINKLES & SKIN FRESHENER:

Combine 2 Tbsp. vodka, 1 Tbsp. fennel seeds, and 1 1/2 tsp. honey. Stir well and allow to set for 3 days. Strain mixture. Use full strength or add 2 Tbsp water to dilute. Use a cotton ball to apply to face as a toner.

Apply coconut oil on the portions of skin and face where wrinkles set in and gently massage every night at bedtime.

 

 

WEAK NAILS:

To strengthen and shine nails, combine 2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. castor oil, and 1 tsp. wheat germ oil and mix thoroughly. Pour into bottle. Shake before using. To use, rub a small amount into your nails. Leave on 3-5 minutes and tissue off. Follow up with more plain castor oil, if desired.

 

 

YELLOW TEETH:

Mix salt with finely powdered rind of lime. Use this as toothpowder frequently.

 

 

EYE PROBLEMS:

Simmer 1-cup water and 1 tsp. honey for 5 minutes. Dip a cloth in the liquid and apply to the closed eye.
