Zelfgemaakte castillazeep op basis van olijfolie met eucalyptus en arganolie en een vleugje gekruide pompoen

Some benefits of :

  • Castile soap is an amazingly versatile vegetable-based soap that’s made free of animal fats and synthetic ingredients. It is a natural, nontoxic and biodegradable soap. 
  • Olive oil acts as an antioxidant, which is a substance that prevents oxidation. Oxidation is a process that can produce free radicals, which are chemicals that can potentially damage cells and may contribute to cancer development. When applied to the skin, antioxidants may prevent premature aging. Also a good moisturizer.
  • Eucalyptus oil clears your chest, keeps the bugs away, disinfects, helps easy breathing, controls blood sugar, eases joint pain.
  • Argan oil protects from sun damage, moisturizes skin, heals skin infections, has anti-aging effects and prevents and reduces stretch marks.

“Healing Stones” – What are they?

Crystal Healing 

Ever heard of Crystal Healing? 


Photo by Sharon McCutcheon on Pexels.com

Crystal Healing is a pseudoscience, used to treat and heal people and their energy system, by placing the crystals on and around the body. The philosophy of modern crystal healing is based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of life-energy (chi or qi) and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras, which are vortices of this life-energy, said to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body. 

There are many different types of crystals which are used for different reasons. The crystals can act as a channel for healing which can help positive and healing energy flow into the body, causing negative energy to be drawn out. They are known to have been used for prevention of disease and curing of illnesses. Some medical doctors tolerate crystal healing to a limited degree, seeing it as a therapy that can induce relaxation, which ultimately is therapeutic for stress management. 

Jewelry is another great way to incorporate a crystal’s abilities. Not to mention, it also allows you to show off each stone’s beauty. Take for example “diamond”. We all know that a diamond is a symbol of purity and innocence, of love and fidelity, and embraces strength of character, ethics, and faithfulness to oneself and others. But did you also know that the diamond stone helps with commitment, love and spirituality?

Sourced from an interesting article by Trevor Nace – Birthstones: Discover Your Birthstone Color By Month…   

“Birthstones appear to have a biblical source, tracing back to the book of Exodus in the Bible and specifically on the breastplate of Aaron. The breastplate was inlaid with 12 gemstones that each represented the twelve tribes of Israel at the time. This specific breastplate was adorned with the following gems: emerald, sapphire, diamond, topaz, carbuncle, sardius, agate, ligure, amethyst, onyx, jasper, and beryl.  

“There were twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes.” (Exodus 28:17-20)  

How did these breastplate gems turn into the birthstones we all know today? Stepping forward to the 1st and 5th century AD two scholars, Flavius Josephus and St. Jerome, are credited with associating the 12 breastplate gems with the 12 signs of the zodiac. Initially, the thinking was that each person would own all 12 birthstones and wear each gem on the corresponding month.” 

Read the entire article here: 


Here is the list of gemstones for each month: 

January Birthstone: Garnet 

February Birthstone: Amethyst 

March Birthstone: Aquamarine 

April Birthstone: Diamond 

May Birthstone: Emerald 

June Birthstone: Pearl or Alexandrite 

July Birthstone: Ruby 

August Birthstone: Peridot 

September Birthstone: Sapphire
