This plant for rituals … Bababalu Aye and other Orshas herb - Hierba de Babalu Aye y otros Orichas


Uses
In the Amazon, local people and indigenous tribes grow bitter melon in their gardens for food and medicine. They add the fruit and/or leaves to beans and soup for a bitter or sour flavor; parboiling it first with a dash of salt may remove some of the bitter taste. Medicinally, the plant has a long history of use by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. A leaf tea is used for diabetes, to expel intestinal gas, to promote menstruation, and as an antiviral for measles, hepatitis, and feverish conditions. It is used topically for sores, wounds, and infections and internally and externally for worms and parasites.

In Brazilian herbal medicine, bitter melon is used for tumors, wounds, rheumatism, malaria, vaginal discharge, inflammation, menstrual problems, diabetes, colic, fevers, worms. It is also used to induce abortions and as an aphrodisiac. It is prepared into a topical remedy for the skin to treat vaginitis, hemorrhoids, scabies, itchy rashes, eczema, leprosy and other skin problems. In Mexico, the entire plant is used for diabetes and dysentery; the root is a reputed aphrodisiac. In Peruvian herbal medicine, the leaf or aerial parts of the plant are used to treat measles, malaria, and all types of inflammation. In Nicaragua, the leaf is commonly used for stomach pain, diabetes, fevers, colds, coughs, headaches, malaria, skin complaints, menstrual disorders, aches and pains, hypertension, infections, and as an aid in childbirth.

Immature fruits of Momordica charantia are used in stews and curries, or pickled. They are also stuffed with minced meat. Seeds of more mature fruits must be removed. Bitterness may be reduced by parboiling or soaking, squeezing or mashing in salted water, or by scoring the skin of the fruit and sprinkling it with salt. Young fruits of wild small-fruited types are locally eaten in West Africa as supplementary or emergency food. In Zimbabwe young non-bitter fruits are eaten in salads, in the same way as cucumbers. Mature fruits of wild plants are said to be poisonous to people and domestic animals. In Asia shoot tips are a popular leafy vegetable that is considered very healthy. Some farmers even grow bushy bitter gourd types with small fruits especially for this purpose.
Bitter gourd tea, made from dried fruit pieces, is a popular health drink in Japan and some other Asian countries. Bitter gourd has numerous medicinal uses. In many African countries the fruit is taken as a purgative and vermifuge, whereas leaves are steeped in water and taken to treat diarrhoea and dysentery. Steeped leaves used as enema are said to have strong astringent properties. The seed is used internally as an anthelmintic, especially in DR Congo. In West Africa the plant is used as a febrifuge either by washing or drinking. Yellow fever and jaundice are treated by an enema of the entire plant in water or eye instillation of leaf sap. The plant is used as an aphrodisiac and in local treatment of gonorrhoea. Preparations made from stems and leaves are used to treat yaws. A decoction is applied to boils, ulcers, septic swellings and infected feet. Plaster made from pulverized plants is used to treat malignant ulcers, breast cancer and skin parasites such as filaria and guinea worms. The leaves are taken to treat menstrual problems and the roots are used against syphilis and rheumatism and as an abortifacient. Crushed leaves are used together with other drugs to relieve heart problems, e.g. tachycardia. Manifold medicinal uses are also reported from Asia and the Americas, e.g. to treat cancer, diabetes, psoriasis and many infectious diseases. It is especially renowned as a remedy for diabetes mellitus, just by eating it regularly as a vegetable.

I saw in some blogs that Ezra Koenig posted photos on Instagram a beautiful purple flower. I noted that “sleep” at night and opens with the daylight. Very beautiful. I met through my paternal grandmother a flower popularly called for 11 hours. Its scientific name is Portulaca grandiflora. Its origin is from Argentina and Uruguay. It is named after closing its petals at dusk and open them slowly at dawn .But the summit takes place eleven, when their petals open. What will be the picture name of Mr. Koenig flower?

happy birthday to my grandmother, who gave me my a poison ring for my twelfth birthday, “just in case”.  the woman who told me that the good ones are never around long enough, the ones you’re ambivalent about, hang around forever.  i believe that she was referring to her husbands. the woman who taught me about lavender, stelle alpine and portulaca. the witch who still has hair so long that it touches her bum, though she always wears it up. don’t dare to touch her hair.  she’s tough, cold, and blunt. and 93 today.

Review of klairs’ Rich Moist Soothing Cream

The cream comes in a small, cute little tub. I do wish it came in a tube though as it’s easier to contaminate the cream by reaching into the tub to get the cream each time.

The cream is thick and very emollient, the scent is kind of vegetal and astringent. Very little cream is needed to put on your face and neck.

Lovely :)

Ingredients

Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glyceryl Stearate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Beeswax, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Stearic Acid, Petrolatum, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Beta-Glucan, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, PEG-100 Stearate, Ceramide 3, Sorbitan Stearate, Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer, Arginine, Illicium Verum(Anise) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi(Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Chlorphenesin, Disodium Adenosine Triphosphate, Algin, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Citric Acid, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Natto Gum, Centella Asiatica Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Althaea Rosea Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Apium Graveolens (Celery) Extract, Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract, Brassica Oleracea Italica (Broccoli) Extract, Brassica Rapa (Turnip) Leaf Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lysine HCL, Proline, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Acetyl Methionine, Theanine

Again like the other products, this has quite an impressive ingredient list, Jojoba oil (skin strengthing, anti-inflammatory), Beta-glucan (anti-inflammatory, redness reducing), Ceramide (skin protecting), Arginine (anti-aging, antioxidant), Skullcap root extract (anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial) and Portulaca Oleracea extract (anti-aging). It also contains a couple possible irritants like Anise extract and Wild Carrot extract, so keep this in mind. This product also contains Petrolatum which may be an issue for people.

The retail price for this cream is $23.99 + shipping, you can get it here. This moisturizer is recommended for dry and sensitive skin types who wish to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to relieve itchy and dry skin.

Much like the other products, prior to using this my skin was dry and flaky with rough red patches mainly on my cheeks, around my nose and hairline. I’ve been using this moisturizer for approximately 4 months and have really noticed a difference in moisture retention in my skin as well as my skin looking and feeling smoother. I use it at night before bed and my skin just glows the next morning. This moisturizer has really helped keep irritation away and absorbs at a decent rate, and also applies matte, the makers do suggest using this prior to makeup so the matte function works well for that. I really feel like this moisturizer would be good for anyone with sensitive skin and I’m very impressed with it. Definitely recommend this to anyone, even oily skin types.

Pros:

Moisturizing

Smoothing

Soothing

Anti-aging

Added skin resilience

Cruelty Free

Paraben and Alcohol free

Cons:

Some irritants (Petrolatum is or is not depending on personal preference)

Would I buy this product?

Yes!

Rating: 10/10
