New Article "nice things." July Issue

7月号のHealthy Life From Wisconsin連載コーナは、

How to grow organic herbs? / オーガニックハーブを育てよう!について書かせていただきました。

I featured in home grown Organic herb recipes in the July issue of nice things. magazine.

 

初夏のこの時期には、日常料理のアクセントやハーブティー、心身のリラクゼーションなど、いろいろと暮らしに役立つハーブの栽培を楽しんでいます。

毎日種から少しずつ生長する過程を観察でき、方向な香り漂うハーブの近くにいるだけで、アロマ効果が得られて気持ちがゆったりと落ち着きます。

自分で育てれば、農薬の心配がいないのもいいですよね!

 

 

ハーブ栽培のポイント:

1:弱アルカリ性〜中性の良質な土(保水性が良くなるよう、腐葉土、ピートモスなどを施した土)と、種(できれば在来種)を選ぶ。

2:午前ちゅたっぷりと太陽の光を与える。(ハーブの多くは日光が大好きなので、半日〜1日日光が当たる南向きの場所などで育てるのが理想。ただし、ミントやチャービルなどなかには日陰の方を好む種類もある)

3:地中海地方原産であることが多いハーブは、乾燥に強く、加湿が苦手。だから、種をまいてから発芽までと、植え替え前後のみを注意すれば、あとは放っておいて自然の状態に任せた方が良く育つ。発芽後は土の表面が乾いたら鉢の底から水が流れるくらい、一度にたっぷりの水を与える。(水を頻繁に与えすぎると、根が腐ってしまうので注意する)

4:風通しの良い場所に置く。(高温多湿の日本でハーブを育てると害虫がつきやすいので、できるだけ風通しが良い場所を選ぶ)

5:ハーブには、「一年草」や「多年草」などの種類があり、それぞれ寿命も異なる。バジルやカモミール、ルッコラ等は、一年間のうちに発芽、開花して種を残すと枯れる一年草。ミントやローズマリー、セージなどの多くのハーブは、一度植え替えれば数年は生き続ける多年草。

 

中国の漢方やインドの伝統医学、アーユルヴェーダなど、世界の各地域でも、私たちの生活に欠かせない存在として、古くから利用されてきたハーブ。毎日生長する様子を見ながら、大切に育てたハーブは、市販おものより香りもエネルギーも強く、よりおいしく感じるもの。今回は、自家製ハーブをつ方、夏デトックスに効く、ハーバルサラダ、ハーバルドリンク、ハーバルデザートレシピをお届けさせていただきました。

New Products!

We have been making Organic Local products..And last Saturday We finally started to sell our products at a farmer's market. We sold Lavender, Lilac, Wild Mint,Walnuts body Cleanse products.

We like to use local, seasonal natural herbs. Luckly we have a lot of Beautiful Lilac trees around here.

 Picking Lilac flowers and Wild Mint....Can you smell?? Smells great !!!!

driftless mama's limited products...

Lavender & Wild Mint Bath Bombs, Lavender and Lime Sugar Scrub, Lilac & Wild Mint Sugar Scrub / All-nutural / we are selling there only farmer's market so far...

Homemade sugar scrub is the most natural way to soften, exfoliate and to freshen up the skin. Sugar is a natural sweetener that can also be used as a natural beauty regimen. Its fine texture gently exfoliates the skin without leaving harmful residue that can clog the pores. It has moisturizing properties that prevents the skin from drying. It is safe to use even on children’s sensitive skin and to soothe chapped lips.

Homemade sugar scrub can help reverse early signs of aging. Exposure from pollution, dirt, stress and sun’s ultra violet rays damage the skin cells. This leads to skin dullness and develops early signs of aging like fine lines and uneven skin tone. Homemade sugar scrub creates a gentle abrasion to even out the skin tone. It removes accumulated dead and damaged skin cells caused by sun exposure and pollution. The gentle massaging application of homemade sugar scrub on the skin enhances blood circulation. This increases collagen production and skin cell regeneration to prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging.(see more)

Sugar Scrubs

Sugar scrubs are softer  than salt scrubs because the granule is round and therefore doesn’t have any ability to “cut” the skin. It’s a far better choice for sensitive skin types and the only choice for the face. Sugar granules dissolve more easily in warm water, and they are less abrasive than salt scrubs. While sugar scrubs don’t have the mineral benefits of salt scrubs, they are less drying...

Salt Scrubs

Salt scrubs are generally more abrasive because of their sharper edges and, therefore, do a better job at smoothing the rough skin of the body. What really separates salt scrubs from sugar scrubs is that they offer therapeutic, mineralization benefits. Most salt scrubs use sea salts, which are natural purifiers that remove the toxins that block the pores of the skin. It helps the skin breath easier, promotes better circulation, tightens the skin and improves skin texture.  Himalayan, Mediterranean, Hawaiian and Dead Sea Salts from Israel... These various salts have different trace minerals, which include calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. The minerals help to promote circulation, reduce the inflammatory response, and act as a detoxifying agent and general muscle relaxant.

 

Lavender & Epsom bath Salt / Good night's sleep / all-natural

Epsom salts have been used by many different cultures for hundreds of years. They have a number of different beneficial properties and are used in gardening, household cleaning and detoxifying the body. These salts are very inexpensive and can be purchased at bulk discounts in garden centers nearly everywhere. Using Epsom salt baths is an advanced detoxification strategy that has remarkable health benefits.

 

Magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin and into the body's blood stream. The skin is a highly porous membrane that both takes in minerals and eliminates toxins every day. Using a powerful mineral base such as Epsom salts in a bathwater medium creates a process called reverse osmosis. This process pulls salt and harmful toxins out of the body and allows the magnesium and sulfates to enter into the body.

Magnesium plays a critical role in over 325 enzymes, helps to improve muscle and nerve function, reduces inflammation and improves blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. Sulfates are necessary building blocks for healthy joints, skin and nervous tissue. Epsom salts replenish the body's magnesium levels and sulfates. This combination helps to flush toxins from the body and helps build key protein molecules in the brain tissue and joints. ( see more )
