HOMEMADE HAIRCARE AND SKINCARE RECIPES WITH SHILAJIT
It’s been a while since we did this last time. For the first blog, click here. We’ll let you in on a little secret now. As always, we’ve been testing and trying out new combinations with Shilajit and various other beneficial substances. And while we found many promising candidates, this process also got us thinking about Shilajit in general. Indeed, there must be several other recipes that we can create at home. From skin masks, ointments, and haircare to delicious and healthy drinks, Shilajit can be found in all. So, to honor this, we decided to dig around and find a few more recipes that can be created at home. Each one of you is welcome to try them out and let us know how it went. We’re positive there is much to be learned here, and we’re excited to learn together with you. Let’s get to it.
HAIRCARE TREATMENTS FOR HEALTHIER AND STRONGER HAIR
It’s been researched and confirmed that Shilajit contains 85 ionic minerals, nutrients, and other compounds that can benefit the body. It can significantly improve our hair or, rather, the health of it. Not only that, but it also helps with the rejuvenation of skin, so using Shilajit is not only healthy for your hair but also your entire scalp. With the help of the following tips, you can do a lot of good for your hair, so don’t be afraid to try it out!
- For this one, you will need a conditioner. Pour some of your deep conditioner into a blender and add egg yolk, coconut oil, honey, olive oil, and Shilajit. Apply on damp hair and wash with lukewarm water. This is good to give your natural hair protein and leave your hair feeling healthy and natural.
- The second is the yogurt mask. Believe it or not, Yogurt contains lactic acid, which typically hydrates hair, preventing frizz and adding moisture. Mix yogurt with a mix of olive oil and Shilajit and leave on your hair for 15-20 minutes and then rinse.
- Exfoliating rub for your scalp. If your hair gets flaky, then this mask is a sure hit. Mix 1 tablespoon of raw coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of raw sugar, 6 drops of peppermint oil and around 0,2g Shilajit. Slowly and gently massage your scalp for about 5 minutes. After that, rinse with warm water.
- This one is a bit special and easy to make. According to Healthline, bananas contain the mineral silica, which helps your body to synthesize collagen, which can make your hair stronger and thicker. A banana hair mask can also reportedly moisturize your hair and help relieve a dry, itchy scalp. Blend two ripe bananas and half a cup of coconut milk mixed with 0,4g of Shilajit. Coat your hair in the mixture and let it sit for 30 minutes, then wash the mask out of your hair.
- We love honey. So this one is a must make. If you have our Chestnut Honey+, this will be even easier. Whatever your hair-dehydrating demon is — hard water, sun overexposure, or your trusty flat iron — nature’s sweetener can help. Honey is a natural humectant, which means it attracts and locks in moisture. Massage approximately 1/2 cup honey with 0,6g of Shilajit into clean, damp hair, let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. You can also add 1 to 2 Tbsp olive oil to loosen the honey for easier application. For extremely sun-damaged hair, try mixing honey with 1 to 2 Tbsp of a protein-rich ingredient, like avocado or egg yolk, which will help replenish the keratin protein bonds that UV rays attack. Treatment can be applied once a month.
- EASY SHILAJIT RECIPES FOR HEALTHY SKIN
Since Shilajit has many valuable properties, its use in cosmetics is well justified. It is part of the creams, masks, and compositions for massage. Using it correctly can help you achieve younger-looking skin, fewer wrinkles, and uneven skin tone while helping regulate hormone levels and deal with stress, resulting in much better-looking and healthier skin. We collected a few valuable tips and tricks that will help you achieve nicer skin. We found several here that we think will be very useful.
- Make your body scrub. For this one, you will need white sugar, brown sugar, coffee grounds, and salt. You will mix those with olive oil, coconut oil, honey, water, lemon juice, and 0,4g Shilajit. Mix until you get a loose paste. Use your fingertips to apply to your body gently and scrub softly, paying particular attention to knees, elbows, and any other rough spots.
- If you want just a face scrub, go for something more delicate. This recipe uses a tablespoon of baking soda mixed with warm water with shilajit until it forms a loose paste. Apply to your face, and then gently wash off with warm water.
- For creating a hydrating face mask, then green tea is your friend. Mix 1 tablespoon of
matcha powder, 1 tablespoon of raw honey, 2 tablespoons of aloe vera and 0,4g of Shilajit. Apply to your face and leave it there for 20 minutes. After that, slowly rinse off with warm water.
- Lastly, we have a recipe for an anti-aging cocoa face mask. As skin ages, the moisture barrier begins to break down, leading to dryness, and the immunity layer of the skin weakens. An antioxidant-packed cocoa mask replenishes moisture and gives skin a restored, youthful appearance. Combine one tablespoon cocoa powder, one tablespoon sour cream, one tablespoon honey, 0,2g of Shilajit, and one egg white. Apply to face and let dry before rinsing. The powerful ingredients make this a multi-tasking wonder-cream: A sour cream is a form of lactic acid that hydrates as it gently exfoliates; honey is a humectant that boosts hydration while the protein in the egg white tightens and firms skin. And, of course, Shilajit takes care of everything else. Perfection.
If you decide to try any of these, please share with us if you like them. And, of course, if you
