I've heard so much about the wonderful benefits of tumeric so now it's time to give it a go.
I have aging pets & a dog with knee injuries so I will be adding this to their food . Also mine. Tumeric is a natural anti inflammatory plus there are many other benefits just type in to google & it will amaze you . Every fridge needs a jar of this
1/2 cup tumeric
1-2 cups water
Place on low heat & simmer for 7-10 minutes. Stirring in more water from second cup if it gets a little dry.
Take of heat and stir in
1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil
2 teasp fresh black peppercorns
( pepper helps your body absorb the tumeric )
Alow to cool & place in glass jar
Keep refrigerated 2-3 weeks
Humans 1/4 teasp twice daily with food
Dogs & cats 1/8 to 1/4 teasp twice daily with food
Horses 1 teasp twice daily with feed
Start small , then increase amount by quarter teaspoon every week until desired result is felt or seen . Some stay on quarter teaspoon , some find a teaspoon 3 times a day is ideal amount .
Amount to use is never per weight it is per individual need.
Somthing completely different for one of my posts.
Although once you see the pictures you will see that I like to change color a little .
So hair condition can be a problem so I really need to have the right products to use . I must say I do like coconut oil & olive oil as a leave in treatment over night.
But I have found a lovely treatment that you leave in for one minute & it's awesome.
An Australian owned company NAK
The shampoo & conditioner is also amazing . If you color your hair I highly recommend it. It pays to buy good product when you do this or your hair will feel like straw . Believe me I've been there , I have had it snapping off ect . But this product leaves my hair lovely & soft.
You see I've gone back to light again after years of dying it red .
The blonde 6 years ago then it was bright red then burgundy then brown .
This is the same color as very first photo just a side version as this is the shortest I've ever had my hair . Short at back long at front , basically it's a longer concave cut.
Anyway if you are looking for a quick awesome treatment give this a try. Otherwise try the overnight olive & coconut oil trick . Works a treat .
It's certainly freezing at the moment in Ballarat. I don't want to venture out of the house but unfortunately poor lasky as developed a serious limp so it was of to the vets first thing this morning. Home we went with pain killers & anti inflammatories & a appointment for Monday for X rays $$$$$$$$ oh my poor pocket .
I have to keep her quiet & the only way to do that is keep her inside.
So I've potted around the house taking photos of crystals
Potted a few zebra plants up when I take lasky outside to relieve herself.
Sat at my computer desk looking out the front window & the freezing cold day admiring all the bits & pieces in the garden .
I've noticed there is stories behind different plants . This geranium I scored at a church opp shop & the lilly above is from my Aunties garden.
This succulent I took from Mum & Dads house when it was sold. I'm not sure of the name I'm waiting to identify it . I think it's some type of aloe.
I'm posting my purchases from today so I remember their names.
Did I mention I love succulents
Echeveria Black prince
Echeveria "dicks pink"
Echeveria Runyonii ( topsy turvy)
I planted these straight into my succulent garden.
The ones below I have planted into pots
Crassula Rupestris ssp marnieriana
I also finished the rose garden & planted a couple more. I bought this one as my Mum & Dad bought their first house on Windermere street.
I planted this one because we always should be thankful .
This one just because I love the colors
& this one as I love the movie.
& a pet picture of course. I was cleaning the windows from inside & couldn't resist a photo of Alaska and gizzy sitting right in front of her . They couldn't see me as I'm sure they would of moved . Alaska just loves the little dogs.
