The 3 most toxic household pollutants that are a cause of concern are
Given below is a list of the eco friendly houseplants that aid mankind
Bamboo Palm: According to research conducted by NASA, the bamboo palm when grown at home removes formaldehyde content from the air indoors. It also acts as a natural humidifier.
Snake Plant: NASA has researched that the Snake plant absorbs formaldehyde and nitrogen oxide too.
Areca Palm: is a very good air purifying plant and is recommended for keeping the air generally clean.
Spider Plant: This is a good indoor plant for eliminating carbon monoxide traces and other impurities and toxins too. NASA deems this plant as one of the best for getting rid of the household formaldehyde content from the air.
Peace Lily: Peace lilies often placed in the laundry rooms and bathrooms are the best “clean-all” plants. They’re well known for eradicating the mold spores in addition to trichloroethylene and formaldehyde traces.
Gerbera Daisy: A popular houseplant bearing beautiful flowers, this plant and its gorgeous flowers help to remove the toxic benzene content from indoor air. They even have an effect on our sleep pattern by bringing indoors more oxygen and decreasing carbon monoxide during night times.
I had this for lunch today (Breakfast food for lunch is perfectly normal, I know you do it to! No judgement) and it’s amazingly tasty. Like pancakes for breakfast but healthier! I added banana and gingerbread spice to give it even more umph.
1 cup steel cut oats
½ tablespoon coconut oil
3 cups water
¼ cup almond milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Melt coconut oil in a medium saucepan on low heat. Add oats, stirring to coat.
2. Turn heat to medium and let cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. (This part will fill your home with the loveliest coconut/oat scent!)
3. Add water and bring to a boil.
4. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
5. Pour oats and leftover water into a glass jar. Cover with a lid and let sit overnight.
6. In the morning, your oats will be ready to go! Reheat them in a saucepan, add in almond milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon, and enjoy!
from free people blog, they have the tastiest recipes, and really cute clothes..
This face mask looks amazing, I mean love anything containing pumpkin (the same goes for almonds and coconuts so..) so when I saw this at “The Kitchy Kitchen” it pretty much made my day (thank you Diana for sending me her blog). Let’s hope it’s as amazing as I think it is
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons almonds (grind in food processor until powdery)
Mix all ingredients together to form a paste and apply to skin using fingers. Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off. (You can also change the coarseness of the almonds to make this more of a scrub.)
Since moving to Australia the hardest part for me is not missing friends and family (I love you) but that the season are turned upside down. You would think that going from our lovely European summer into the Australian one would be great, and in some ways it is, but christmas without snow? Thats just wrong! And since autumn is my absolute favorite season off all time (closely followed by spring) I’m having crazy autumn cravings. Orange leaves, sweaters, hot tea you name it. And especially gingerbread and pumpkin spice. (I just spelled it pumking, that how much I love it)
Since gingerbread takes forever to make (who has time for overnight in the fridge) I’m going with pumpkin spice easy breasy… (while looking for a pumpkin spice recipe I stumbled on to this recipe… OMG it look’s so good!!)
