Today I am celebrating this day thinking about how important it is to preserve our Earth, respect the Nature and environment.
I painted these flowers with pure colors from Nature without using the classic watercolor pans.
I wrote a post explaining all the interesting details about my experiment painting with Nature and I will link it here for you to read “Watercolors from Nature”
National Earth Day is observed each year on April 22.
National Earth Day is held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Every year around the world, Earth Day organizers promote green campaigns to save the Earth.
Details about my doodlewash: I painted with colors that I experimented using straight from Nature. The yellow is Turmeric powder mixed with water, the Pink is juice from the Dragon fruit straight from the fruit and Pigma Micron black Ink pen #005 and #05 over a watercolor paper pad cold press 140 lb by Strathmore.
this is not one of my usual post but is about “Health” and “Natural Remedies” I feel that this is something I like to share with all of you, especially right now that is Winter Season it’s easy to get sick, weather change, cold temperatures, snow, rain, cold wind, humidity and so on…we need to be wise and protected because cold and flu is easy to catch and is not fun.
I have to say that I am a strong believer of the power of Nature not just in my Art but in everything I do and I use natural homemade remedies. I have seen great results most of the time.
What I am going to share is the recipe I used to cure my “Cold” when I got sick around New Years Eve.
My symptoms were a cold associated with sore throat, cough, loss of voice, muscle aches.
This special and precious natural mixture did wander for me and is known as the “Turmeric Golden Honey” is claimed to be one of the strongest natural antibiotic. When you take these two ingredients together it strengthens your “Immune System” and is as well a great anti inflammatory.
The mixture is composed of Turmeric and Raw organic Honey. Turmeric is a root part of the Ginger family cultivated in India and Asia, when dry is a powder having an intense yellow color used as spice for cooking, can be found in every food market, actually is really good and add a unique and exotic taste to your food giving you lots of great health benefits. (I suggest you to Google health benefits of Turmeric).
3.5 oz. (100 grams) of Raw Organic Honey. (I use organic raw wildflower honey)
1 tbsp. of Turmeric powder.
Preparation of the mixture:
Add 1 tbsp. of Turmeric in 3.5 oz. (100 grams) of raw organic honey, mix very well with a wooden spoon and place the Golden Honey mixture in a glass jar.
If you want to make more double the dose and store it at room temperature.
How to Use:
Take upon the first symptoms of colds and flu:
Day 1 – Take ½ tsp. every hour during the day.
Day 2 – Take ½ tsp. every two hours during the day.
Day 3 – Take ½ tsp. three times a day.
The Golden Honey mixture should stay in the mouth until dissolved.
The cold usually passes after three days, in mild cases, but sometimes takes longer for the body to recover.
I took this for one week and kept taking ½ tsp. once a day for few more days when I was feeling better until the cold was gone just to keep my immune system strong. Thanks to this homemade mix you can be able to prevent cold without taking any drugs and prescriptions and use it as alternative.
Use it also to boost the Immune System Take ½ tsp once every couple of days as needed.
I remind you strongly that if you suffer of any medical condition and taking any medications please consult your doctor before trying this natural alternative as it may have adverse effects on some individuals.
