There is No Place like Home

There is No Place like Home

Your living space should be a relaxing retreat from the stress of everyday life. According to sensory science, the notion of the home as a sanctuary is helpful for you to find that the environment you create has a big impact on your outlook and sense of well-being; from the pictures you have on your walls to the pillows on your couch. These influences can have a great impact on your mood and attitude. Any change you make could nourish your senses and turn your home into a healing haven.

Long live onions

In Ancient Egypt the onion was revered as a symbol for eternity, due to its circle-within-a-circle shape just inside its skin. Sulfur compounds thin your blood and lower blood pressure. The quercetin in onions helps to prevent oxidation of bad cholesterol and defends against cancer and cataracts. To gain maximum quercetin, choose red onions, then yellow, then white.

Wait 48 hours to shampoo. Dye molecules need time to set into strands. When you are ready to wash, choose a shampoo for color treated hair, which contains gentler detergents. Rinse with tepid water. Hot water expands the cuticle, which will lead to fading.
