Tea Tree Oil Usages and Benefits ft. Ryaal Essentials

Hey, people!!
How are you all doing?? It's been more than a month that I haven't written a single post on my blog. I really missed writing :( No worries as I am back and I will try to be as regular as before. Today's post is going to be very new to me as I am talking about essential oils for the first time on my blog. This post is on Tea Tree Essential Oil from the brand "Ryaal".


I have postponed this post for a long period of time because of my busy schedule. I apologize for the delay and I thank them(brand) for being supportive. So, in this post, let's know some information about Tea Tree Essential oil.

About Tea Tree Oil:

The health benefits of Tea Tree Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antiviral, balsamic, cicatrisant, expectorant, fungicide, insecticide, stimulant and sudorific substance. It is toxic when taken by mouth but is widely used in low concentrations in cosmetics. It has gained a reputation as a cure-all oil which is no exaggeration.

It has been used from earlier times to keep the skin free from all sorts of infections owing to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Tea tree oil is also praised as the perfect choice for interiors where a spicy fragrance is demanded.

Packaging: The Tea Tree Essential oil from Ryaal comes in a small blue colored glass bottle. The best part is that they have provided a separate dropper which is very much convenient to use. 

Usage:

As said above, Tea tree oil can be used for many skin and hair related problems.

1. For Hair: This oil has an amazing property which works wonders on the dry and scaly scalp. It also fights with dandruff and hair fall and gives you longer, shinier and thicker hair. For this, dilute 2-3 drops of tea tree oil to your regular oil and use it.

2. For Skin:
  • Due to its antibacterial properties, Tea Tree oil is very efficient in treating acne and many skin problems. All you need to do is to mix a drop of tea tree oil with a tiny bit of coconut oil and apply on your face with a cotton ear bud. This draws out the dirt from your pores and will definitely destroy any pimple-causing bacteria.
  • You can reduce your dry skin on your hands/legs by just mixing 2 drops of Tea Tree Oil in your body lotion and applying onto your skin. This is a great solution, especially in winter where we all face scaly skin problems.
3. As a Cleanser:  In a spray bottle, take equal quantities of normal water and white vinegar and add 15-20 drops of the tea tree oil and spray this mixture on some household objects, especially in the kitchen, washing machine or bathroom, where it acts as a great cleanser. Also, be aware that it will not be diluted in water or vinegar, so avoid spraying directly onto your skin. 

4. Mixing in Bathing Water: Mix 15 drops of the tea tree oil in the water used for taking a bath. This water when used for bath acts as a remedy for minor vaginal infections, without causing any side effects and also tea tree oil can help freshen you up. Unlike many soaps and washes, it keeps you truly clean, rather than simply covering up the odor.

These are some simple ways in which I am using my Ryaal Tea Tree Essential oil. Comment down below if you know any other DIY skin care or home remedies using tea tree oil.

Points to remember:
  • Always dilute essential oils with carrier oils
  • Please consult an essential oil book or another professional reference source for dilution ratios.
  • Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
  • Keep out of reach of children and avoid contact with skin and eyes.
  • If pregnant or lactating, please consult your healthcare practitioner before using.

That's all for today's post guys. Until next time, Take care, Bye Bye...

Photo embossing on desired surfaces

Photo transfers are a neat and pretty cheap way to get your favorite pics on the some of the coolest material around. I love to embossing pictures on different shapes of wood pieces as a super-hands-on DIY, you can really make this project your own way based on how you want your photo transfer to look – distressed or textured. This all depends on how and with what you apply Mod podge at last of the project. As told in a previous blog post that I can share you more projects on mod podge, this is one of them.
You can transfer your desired photos to make lovely gifts for friends, and they’d be fun to make with kids to...

Things required:
  • I used wooden base in this project
  • Glue medium
  • Modpodge
  • Wetcloth 

STEP 1: Put It in Reverse
Open up the photo file you want to use for this transfer in a photo-editing program and reverse it.
Why in reverse? You’re going to be laying the photo face-down on the wood surface you’re transferring it on, so you want your photo to end up facing the right way when it’s revealed on the flip side.
  1. Check that your photo is set at 300 DPI so that the picture will be clear
  2. Don’t forget to size your photo to fit on the shaped surface of your wood piece. 
STEP 2: Laser Paper Print
Get your reversed, properly-sized, 300 DPI photo printed from a laser printer on fairly thin paper
You want your photo printed on thinner paper because this’ll make it easier in Step 8 when you’re going to rub the paper fibers off.
We got double prints of our photos just in case our scissors go wrong.


STEP 3: Scissor Action
Cut out the laser-printout of your photo exactly in the dimensions of your wooden base you planned for.

STEP 4: Glue It Up
First, cover your work surface with some scrap paper.
Then take one of your brushes and use it to put on a thin layer of glue medium right on top of your photo.


STEP 5: Flatten It Out
Now, very carefully lay your photo face-down on top of your wood piece.
Once you got your photo in place, use your credit card or any laminated card to smooth out and flatten any air bubbles underneath your photo.
Wipe off any extra glue medium that seeps out of your photo’s edges as you’re smoothing it out.


STEP 6: Let It Dry
Now it’s time to let your photo transfer sit and dry for at least 8 hours. Depending on when you started this DIY, you may pick up on this project the next day.

STEP 7: Soak It Good
Once your photo transfer has been out to dry for 8 hours or so, it’s time to give it a good water-soaking.First, protect your work surface with some wet towels.Then take your towel rag and get it wet with some water.
Squeeze out excess water and press the wet rag on top of your photo transfer, making sure the photo in the transfer is completely soaked. You can also just let the wet towel sit on top of the transfer for a couple of minutes to make the task easier.


STEP 8: Rub-A-Rub!!
This part needs some patience. Use your fingers to rub off the fuzzy white paper fibers and to reveal your lovely photo underneath. Depending on how large your photo transfer is, this step may take a while.


STEP 9: Dry It Some More
You’re almost done, hooray!
Let your photo transfer completely dry, If you notice more paper bits on the wooden picture piece then wet it up and again repeat step 8.


STEP 10: Mod Podge It Up (Optional)
Once your photo transfer is dry and satisfactory to you, use the Mod Podge to seal your hard work with a glossy finish which adds a protective layer. For application use a sponge with strokes  to get a textured look ,if you need a smooth glossy look use a wooden Popsicle stick to apply evenly.
That’s it! Your photo transfer is done and ready to be in the limelight.
Don't expect a crystal clear image,Always expect a rough vintage look


You can try on different surfaces like glass, leather  with same steps as above.
but pictures on wood can be a bit clearer comparatively.That's all for today's post guys. Until next time, take care, bye-bye. 
Please do share your images once you try this project, it encourages us


Yours,
