Soothe Tired Feet with this Soak

A long day of running errands left your feet aching and fatigued and the quick remedy is to soak them in warm water with powdered mustard. To do: Pour 2 liters of hot tap water into a basin and stir in 2 tablespoons of powdered mustard. Then soak your tired feet for 5 to 10 minutes. A compound found in mustard seeds, Sinigrin, helps reduce inflammation and stimulates blood flow in the feet to help put the pep back in your step. Plus, mustard's antimicrobial and antifungal properties will keep your feet smelling fresh.

Where to Wear a Promise Ring

Do you have an idea on what finger you should wear personalized promise rings? Actually, it doesn't matter whether you wear a promised ring on your right or left hand. What's important is what the ring symbolizes and not how it is worn.

Normally though, many choose to wear it on the ring finger on the left hand. Since it is a promise of commitment and it often precedes an engagement, a lot of couples decide to wear their promise rings on the wedding ring finger.

Pomegranate Seed Oil Moisturizer Review

I've tried a lot of oils already, but this will be the first time I will be trying pomegranate oil. Today's review is about the Pomegranate Seed Oil Moisturizer by BeautyOils.Co.

Product Description

- 100% Pure Cold Pressed Pomegranate Seed Oil
- Full of essential fatty acids and powerful antioxidants that help protect against free radical damage and promote the regeneration of skin cells
- Fragrance free, preservative free, cruelty free, vegan, all good
- This incredibly light, anti-inflammatory oil is ideal for aging skin
- Comes with a convenient press-top cap dispenser

My thoughts

The Pomegranate Seed Oil Moisturizer has no scent. This is a plus for those who are allergic to fragrances and for those who use a lot of other products on their faces. I was expecting that my face would look shiny after application, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't. It's non greasy, it's easy to work on the skin and it absorbs fast. Although it says it works as a moisturizer, it's more like a Vitamin C Serum for me. It does moisturize the skin, but if you're skin is too dry, this may not be enough and you'll have to follow up with a moisturizer.

What I like about the oil is that it does not make you feel like you're piling up a lot of products on your face. It is very light and it doesn't really feel like you applied it on your face. I've been using this for about a week and I am already noticing some improvements on my skin. The pores are slightly smaller and my dark spots appear lighter.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this product. If you are in the market for a product to brighten dark spots, reduce pores and delay the signs of aging, the pomegranate oil is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Pomegranate Oil through the BeautyOils.Co website and on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Disaster Preparedness

Time and weather must really been changing. We're used to tropical storms because we get a lot of that all through out the year. What worries me is those storms have gotten really strong over the past few years; too strong that they have left a lot of casualties. The places that never experienced flooding were left submerged in water for days. Scary, isn't it?

We're lucky enough to be residing in a higher place and we've never experienced floods. I don't want to be too complacent though. There may be no floods in our area, but we have experiences lost of power for days. Imagine 14 days without power? Yup, that's the longest power outage we've experienced here. It was very difficult, especially that the kids need to go to school. I had to heat their water using the stove and carry the pot all the way to the bathroom upstairs.

So that's why my husband and I decided to solve the problem. Just in case it happens again [and I'm sure it will], we have to be ready. My husband immediately contacted Century fuel products. We've asked around and this company is the most recommended by friends. They are a leading supplier of tri-fuel portable generators and tri-fuel conversion kits here and abroad. These things run on natural gas, gasoline or propane. We chose gasoline because, it's the easiest to get around here.

We've experienced several storms after we've bought the generator, and although power outages only lasted for hours, it didn't let us down. It does not give off noxious fumes and it's very quiet. It makes us feel good that we are prepared just in case power will be out for days. How about you? Are you prepared for disasters, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and massive power outages? Century fuel products are very affordable and easy to use. It doesn't even take an expert to operate their generators. And should you decide to convert it from gasoline to propane, kits are available to make the conversion easier for you. You can check out the site for more information.

Protect Your Home With the Right Air Filter

If you have allergies, you know the impact they can have on your health and lifestyle. They can cause mild problems like sneezing and watery eyes or more severe problems like skin rashes and hives. By installing a filtrete air filter in your home's furnace, you can help protect your family from allergy related symptoms and illnesses.

The Most Common Household Allergens

As winter approaches, it's important to make sure your furnace has a filter than can protect your family from household allergens. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, more than fifty million Americans suffer from allergies. The most common allergies are triggered by inhalants that can cause mild to severe symptoms. Take a look at the most common triggers:

* Dust Mites – Tiny, microscopic creatures that can invade your bedding, upholstery, carpets and rugs, draperies and clothing.

* Mold – Mold, caused by excess moisture, can grow and flourish in dark, wet areas of your house like the attic, basement and foundation. Mold produces spores that float freely in the air.

* Smoke – Cigarettes, wood burning fireplaces and overcooked food can create smoke in the house. Breathing even small amounts of smoke can cause respiratory problems.

* Odors – Household odors produced by food, aerosol sprays and household cleaners can irritate mucus membranes and cause respiratory problems.

* Pollen – Pollen, produced by trees, shrubs and flowers in your yard, can easily enter your home through open windows or doors.

* Ragweed – Ragweed, a common weed that's found in every region of the country, is the top outdoor offender causing allergy symptoms from late summer through fall.

Most inhalant allergens affect your respiratory system and mucus membranes with symptoms that can include sneezing; coughing; stuffy or runny nose; itchy throat and ears; puffy eyelids; itchy, watery eyes; skin rashes; hives; and breathing problems. They can also trigger asthma and breathing problems in some people with existing allergies or compromised immune systems, especially in children and the elderly.

During cold weather when your furnace gets peak usage, you should change your furnace filter every 30 days to ensure proper airflow. If your filter is clogged or dirty, your furnace can't operate correctly. With restricted airflow, it will have to run longer and harder to create warm air, resulting in higher energy bills.
