How to Use Honey & Cinnamon to Treat Skin Irritation
Skin irritations such as skin itching, is a common dermatological complaint. When your skin itches, the tendency is to keep scratching it. This can cause your irritated skin to become red and injured from your nails, which can eventually lead to skin rashes. Skin irritations can be treated at home. You can use many over-the-counter remedies. However, these products contain harsh chemicals that can further irritate your skin. Fortunately, you can use natural ingredients such as cinnamon and honey. These two ingredients contain soothing and antiseptic properties that you can use to help relieve skin irritations.
Step 1Take a shower or wash the affected skin with warm water and an antibacterial soap. Avoid scrubbing your skin to prevent further infection. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel after cleaning your skin.
Step 2 . Add 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder in a clean bowl. Stir the mixture with a spoon until it turns into a paste. Add more cinnamon powder if you want a thicker mixture.
Step 3. Scoop a generous amount of the honey-cinnamon mixture with your fingers and apply it directly to the irritated skin areas. Gently massage the mixture into your skin in a circular motion until it dries. Leave the mixture on your skin for five minutes.
Step 4. Wash your skin with water and soap to remove the sticky mixture. Pat your skin dry after cleaning your skin.
Step 5. Reapply the mixture as needed.
- Seek medical advice from your physician or health care professional if you are suffering from skin irritation.

Strong and powerful garlic has dozens of health and household uses – some of which may seem pretty unusual. While garlic is an important ally for natural health (you may be familiar with the fact that garlic has the ability to increase immunity, banish colds and is a recognized broad-spectrum antibiotic), its functions extend beyond these common uses. Check out these 14 unusual and strange alternative uses for garlic
- A Great Aid for Athlete’s Foot
Being a potent, natural antifungal, garlic is ideal for treating fungal infections like irritating and itchy athlete’s foot. Just add a couple of crushed garlic cloves to warm water in a foot bath and soak the affected area for 30 minutes.
Helps in Preventing Gas
While for some, garlic causes uncomfortable stomach-distending gas, due to its high sulfur content, for others it can reportedly ease it. In order to maintain intestinal health though, you would need to consume it on a regular basis. Garlic can kill harmful intestinal bacteria, promoting the growth of beneficial flora, making digestion smoother.
- Combats Hair Loss
Before resorting to a more drastic measure, if you are going bald, give garlic a shot. It is believed that massaging the scalp with garlic oil stimulates hair growth.
Apply it to Breakouts of Acne
Though it will make your skin smell, the antibacterial properties of garlic will help lessen the appearance of acne, including those deep acne cysts that can otherwise be difficult to treat. Just slice open a clove of raw, fresh garlic and apply it to breakouts.
Aids in Weight Loss
Though you cannot count on garlic to help you lose a lot of weight, research shows that garlic has potential for aiding weight loss. Compounds found in garlic send signals of satiety to your brain, which will actually help you to feel full faster. It also boosts metabolic function, enabling you to burn more calories.
Use it as a Natural Pesticide
An all-natural garlic pesticide spray can be used to ward off pests like whiteflies, aphids, cabbage loppers and squash bugs. All you need to do is mince three garlic cloves and let them sit in two tablespoons of mineral oil for 24 hours. Then, strain out the garlic and add the oil, along with a teaspoon of liquid dish soap, to a pint of water in a spray bottle and spray on infested plants.
Use it to Repel Mosquitoes
You need not use DEET and other potentially toxic chemicals to ward off mosquitoes, garlic can work wonders. To prepare a mosquito spray, let a few minced cloves of garlic infuse in an ounce of mineral oil for 24 hours. Strain and mix the garlic scented oil with two cups of water and one teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. If necessary, strain again and pour into a spray bottle.
Use it as a Natural Adhesive to Repair Glass
Though it may not work on major jobs, garlic juice can be used to fill in hairline cracks in glass and hold them together. Simply crush a clove of garlic and rub its sticky, viscous juice in the cracks and wipe away the excess.
Kills Bacteria that Causes Ear Infection
This common folk remedy has been used for centuries. Simply crush a clove of garlic and place it in a teaspoon of hot olive oil for five minutes. Strain, allow cooling and dripping a few drops at a time into your ear canal. Alternatively, you can purchase garlic oil from natural health food stores.
Helps Remove Splinters
Splinters are painful to remove and may at times dig a little too deep into the skin to pull out, but this odd trick can really work. Place a thin slice over the splinter, keeping it on with a bandage. The garlic should help the splinter work its way out of the skin within hours.
Use it to Relieve Psoriasis
Garlic’s anti-inflammatory properties could ease or even prevent persistent tightness and itching of psoriasis. Active compounds in garlic interact with arachidonic acid, an omega fatty acid in the skin linked to psoriasis. You may also rub garlic oil on the affected areas once or twice per day.
Use it as a Cough Syrup
Garlic can be used as a cough syrup to ease inflammation in the throat and clear up excess mucus. Add raw, minced garlic in hot water, straining it after five minutes and drinking the liquid as tea. To make it more palatable, add ginger and honey.
Garlic makes for a Fantastic Road De-icier
Come winter, many towns de-ice their roads. Ankeny, Iowa smelled awfully savory in 2008 when winter transportation crews spread garlic salt on the streets in advance of snowstorms. The salt, donated by a local spice producer, was apparently deemed unfit for human consumption.
Kills Intestinal Parasites
Many alternative health practitioners advise using raw garlic to expel intestinal parasites. Consumed in quantities of about three cloves per day may help clear nasty organisms out of the digestive tract. It is recommended as part of a cleansing diet that also includes raw honey, lemon juice, pumpkin seeds, carrots and beets.

Temperatures reach as high as 45 degrees Celsius (111 degrees Fahrenheit) on Saturday, just short of an all-time high in the city of 47 C in June 1979 in the southern port city of Karachi
It is the first time ever in my life that I see the rising death rate due to the heat wave and suffocation. The heat wave is so severe that it is unbreakable for us too who are sitting at home having water and electricity. Majority of the people have load shedding in their areas resulting in no water and no power so they out of annoyance are mostly affected.
The Pakistan Rangers, Sindh however established 10 heatstroke relief centers in the city, almost all of them operating inside the Rangers headquarters. Open to all, the centers provide free-of-charge treatment to those who are suffering from heat stroke. Rangers officer was being administered a drip while cold water was being poured on Javed, a civilian patient at the centre. Javed, who works at a nearby shop, said that when he collapsed he was brought to the centre by the Rangers deployed nearby. “I feel much better now,” he claimed. I hope and earnestly wish and pray Allah to forgive us and bless us with heavy showers of rain and to lessen the heat and have mercy

Islam does not oppose family planning at all, rather directs to devise a strategy and planning in this field too like all other fields. God has made a code of conduct for the smooth running of this world. Thus all the works, accordingly get accomplished in two ways.
The first way is beyond the capacity of human beings as in the matters of rains, storms, floods, earthquakes, changing of seasons, and the natural calamities etc.
The second way has the partial involvement of the human being’s will and action. In all of the matters which a human being considers to be in his capacity, God has directed him to undertake them with knowledge, rational thinking, intellect, wisdom and proper strategy.
Childbirth is one of the selective matters where God lets the free will of the human beings exercise. Though a child is born as per the order of God, yet the parents and other human beings are the source for that. It is just as a farmer cultivates his land and grows the crop. The Quran affirms it at so many occasions that the cultivation of land and growing of crop by man is certainly done at the will of God. The farmer is no doubt the source. Thus the same intellect employed by man for the cultivation of his land should be applied while cultivating his generation too. Both these matters have been yoked together in Al-Waqia’ah:
“Behold the semen you emit: did you create it, or did we? (….) Consider the seeds you grow. Is it you that give them growth or we?” (Al-Waqi’ah 56: 63-64)
“(O Prophet) Give good news to my servants, who listen to my words and follow the best interpretation of it
During the time of the Holy Prophet some of his companions used to adopt certain preventive measures for birth control. The Holy Prophet knew it and allowed to continue with that. Thus it can be concluded that all methods for birth control are valid in Islam.
In all such matters where man has free will whatever the decision he makes and whatever the line of action he opts becomes the decision of God, if it is not against the larger interest of the whole of the humankind.
Thus man has to plan for that, otherwise he would not get it enough. Hence one must plan the size of one’s family, the time for the birth of a child and the proper care of every child. This is what we call family planning.
He must take proper care of the health of this wife. He must plan for a new child when his wife is able to give birth to a child in all respects. He has to look after her during her pregnancy. He must give proper respite between the births of two children. He can only be called a wise and a responsible husband if he Thus man continues proceeding on the highway of knowledge, rational thinking and science through this way. God has declared this principle in clear terms in the Quran that He never let any man’s Action go waste
Face mapping is a combination of the ancient Chinese medicine and the Ayurveda, explaining how certain parts of your face are tightly connected with other areas of your body. Put it this way; imagine your face as a map and blemishes as X’s on that landscape. Spots in different zones correspond to different problems. So, use this “video” as your guide, and discover the underlying causes of blemishes and now you can not only make the unsightly zits disappear but you can also treat the problem causing them.
I found this information good for health for each one of us so i thought of sharing or rather refreshing:)
