Welcome December!

 

Hello everyone today is the first day of December and it is snowing on my Blog!

I love snow but living in Southern California is quite impossible from my location ito have snow unless I go up to the mountains when it’s snowing there.
So… I have to pretend to enjoy a peaceful snowfall and have it on my Blog! ❤ LOL

This month there are some nice watercolor painting challenges starting today! I hope to find the time to join one of them like I did last year, I am thinking at the   “12 Days” Challenge hosted on Instagram and Facebook  by The Bad Apple Artists Collective

Bad Apple 12 Days Challenge Official Prompt List 2018

These  Art challenges are a great way to create new work, I love to create new series for my collections of Limited Edition Prints, challenges are great to spice up your creativity and to work on your skills and habits to paint or drawing daily and to have ideas if you’re scared to the blank paper! 😉

Hello friends sorry I haven’t post much lately, I have been busy with some painting commissions, fullfilling some orders and organizing my new Etsy Shop. Last week I went to visit the beautiful Ocean it was an great day! Maybe some of you that follow me on Instagram @carolinarussoart already had the opportunity to see these and more of my latest photos. I love the ocean in Winter the colors, the dramatic sky is a wonderful combination. When I went there I took some nice photos there were a beautiful light check my Instagram for more. These days here in California is unusually raining a lot, which is very good for the earth everything around here is now way greener and beautiful! Usually the hills where I go hiking are dry and the vegetation camouflage with the dirt and rocks at this moment it is so green like rarely I have seen, so I went to take some photos there too I will post them here next time. For today enjoy this beautiful ocean’s sunset! And you can also see me in action trying to capture the moment! ❤

A Powerful Antibiotic from Nature…

Turmeric

Raw Organic Honey

Hello everyone,

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).

The Turmeric yellow color is very pigmented and maybe you remember one of my previous post where I explain how I experimented Watercolor painting with Turmeric .

Turmeric Flower

Now let’s get the “Turmeric Golden Honey” recipe:

Ingredients are:

  • 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.
