Does Beer Belong To Our Beauty Routine?

In my country, Czech republic, Beer is part of our life. We produce the best beer in the world and we love it. We are number 1 in beer consumption per capita. It is cheaper to buy beer in a restaurant then buy soft drink! Yes! It’s just the way it is. Czech people love their beer and are not afraid to use it. For everything and anything.

My mom has few amazing recipes for beer marinated meat dishes, I marinate ribs in beer before BBQ. It’s delicious and juicy. Manufaktura, Czech cosmetic company, has entire line of beer cosmetics that is based on Czech beer tradition and they are popular around the world. First notes of using beer in cosmetics in Czech dates to 10th century! You can also find Beer Spa in many cities in Czech republic. Yumm

Beer is a unique source of vitamin B, minerals and polyphenols. It helps to regenerate skin and to protect it from outside damage.  When it comes to hair, it helps hair to de-tangle after washing, gives it extra shine and protects and regenerates the hair. Basically in Czech, Beer is an answer to everything.

Thanks to my Czech friends, I was offered the opportunity to share my love for healthy beauty routine on Japanese Tv Channel 1, Asa Ichi. They wanted to show how you can use beer, besides just he obvious, drinking it. The show was fun and interesting, they cooked Beer Rice, Beer Pancakes and Doughnuts, used beer for cleaning the house and also showed beer bath and my own beer hair care. They came to our house for a fun shoot.

First of all I did simple Hair Beer Rinse. It is very traditional hair routine in Czech. Our grandmas did not buy expensive hair products yet had beautiful and strong hair. After washing your hair, simply rinse your hair with aprox 500 ml of beer and massage it into your scalp. Let it work for about 5 min then rinse with cold water and dry. Your hair will be smooth, shiny and the color brighter. If you do this regularly, your hair will grow stronger and if you have dry scalp, it will help with it too.

The next thing I showed them was Hair Spray for volume. This one I make in small quantity, so I can use it up in 2-3 uses. Approx 100 ml of beer, 3 drops of Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood Essential oils, Mix together and spray on your wet hair. Blow Dry and style as usual. Your hair will hold in place, no need to buy hair spray from the store, which is full of chemicals! Beer and Essential oils together will keep your hair in place, while giving it nutrients and vitamins it needs. Lavender, Rosemary and Cedarwood are my favorite oils when it comes to hair and I use them all the time. They help to regenerate hair to grow faster, stronger and shinier. My hair is so strong now that I use my oils regularly! What I like best about this spray is that I do not need to use store bought spray that has way too many chemicals in it, yet it does the job just as well and also makes my hair healthier. And my hair smells amazing! It is pure pleasure to use this spray. After using the spray put the remaining liquid in the fridge. Honestly best to make just small quantity. Also note I only use Young Living Essential Oils because they are the only company that offers Seed to Seal Guarantee and I know my oils are the best quality. That for me is super important. If you already go the extra step to use natural product, make sure your oil is also 100% therapeutic grade and has not been tinted. You can read on my article to learn more about Why Young Living

Whisk 1 egg and 30 ml of Beer, 3 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil and 3 drops of Clary Sage and put on washed hair. Massage into your scalp and let is work its magic for about 15 minutes, covered with foil and warm towel. Then wash off. You will love your hair.

Simple pleasures

I love food. Everybody knows it, it’s quite my thing. Besides being the Oily lady, I am the Cook all the time lady too. And because I love homemade food and good food, I try to involve my oils when I can.

Why? It is very simple. Ingesting oils is very beneficial for your health and for your digestion. But before I start explaining how and what and why, let me be clear. Not all oils are created equally and most essential oils, especially those you buy in stores and over the internet sites, like Amazon and Ebay, cannot be trusted. Why? Because you don’t know where they come from, if they were sprayed with chemicals or diluted with something. For this reason I only use Young Living Essential oils.

Using Essential Oils in your kitchen has many benefits to your health, but in a long term, it also saves you money. 1 drop of Essential oil goes a long way so you do not need to be buying fresh herbs over and over. 1 drop also have much more nutrients than bunch of herbs. Am I am not even mentioning dry herbs as drying herbs might keep the flavor, but looses 95% of the therapeutic potency. Plus with the oils, you always have them on hand, you do not need to run to the store every time you decide to make salad dressing.

Although it might seem little bit pricey at first, once you create your collection, you realize it is very economical and very beneficial to your family. Also, Essential oils, when kept properly, have no shelf life. They do not expire. Fresh herbs go bad within few days, dried herbs and spices also have to be thrown away after some time as they loose their taste and smell and might get moldy. Not your oils. So just make sure you buy the best oils out there and by best oils I mean Young Living. Trust me. Go with me. You can send me Thank you note anytime. You gonna love it.

So it’s Friday night and I am thinking of what to make for dinner. In Czech, we often have cold dinners. I was not really sure what I will make but then I went to store and saw these beautiful radishes in the organic corner. And dinner idea was born. I baked Sourdough bread earlier that week, so I just bought butter and the radishes and went home. I made something I ate often as a child, very simple and super lovely. Bread with butter and radish. I sprinkled Rosemary Salt on it. Why? Because Rosemary salt makes everything better. And I mean EVERYTHING! Once you make a batch of your own, you will put it in every meal you can.

How I make it? Very simple. You want slightly coarse salt. Not too big grains, because you do not use a salt mill. You take 200 ml glass jar ( I mostly use jam jars or something similar, that has lid) and fill it 2/3 with the salt. Then you take your Young Living Rosemary Essential oil and put 2 drops in. Close it and shake the bottle very well. Then put 2 more drops. Done. I recommend making this at least an hour before using for the first time. Shake it every few minutes to make sure it gets absorb evenly. Then use for the dish of your choice.

And why is there Lemon Essential oil on my picture? Lemon Essential oil is one of the most phenomenal oils. Not only it tastes great and is fantastic for our health, it also removes petrochemicals. So when I brought my radishes, I soaked them in a bowl of water where I put 2 drops of Lemon Essential oil. The Lemon oil removes all the dirt and yuck that has been on your food and leaves is clean for you to eat. I do this with my strawberries, grapes, apples, you name it. Lemon Oil for the win. And it is also one of the cheapest oils Young Living has so it is totally affordable. And it is a part of the Premium Starter Kit, because there should be bottle of Lemon in every household. I will tell you why some other day.
