Aloe Vera Gel

The plant benefits:

– Outwardly:

  • Best inflammatory.
  • Soothing pain and swelling.
  • Remove the itchiness.
  • Dilates the capillaries and¬†stimulate blood flow.
  • Accelerates wound healing.
  • Excellent for a warts treatment.

– Internally:

  • We can use for peptic ulcer,¬†heartburn and¬†indigestion.
  • Improving digestion.

How to make aloe vera gel in 8 steps.


  1. Wash your hands. It’s important to start with clean hands and use clean tools to make sure the gel doesn’t get contaminated.
  2. Slice off an outer leaf of an aloe plant. The outer leaves are more likely to be mature. They’ll contain plenty of fresh, healthy gel. Look for leaves around the outside of the plant, with bases growing close to the ground. Use a sharp knife to make a clean cut near the base.
    • Since aloe vera gel is perishable, it’s best not to make a huge batch at once, unless you plan to give some away. Cutting off just a leaf or two, especially if they’re large, should be sufficient to make 1/2 to 1 cup of gel.
    • If your plant is young, be especially careful not to cut off too much at once. Cutting off all of the outer leaves could damage the plant.
  3. Drain the resin for 10 minutes. Place the leaves upright in a cup to let the dark yellow resin drain out. The resin contains latex, which can be slightly irritating to skin. It’s best to drain it out so it won’t get into your gel.
  4. Peel the leaves. Use a vegetable peeler to carefully peel away the green portion of the leaves. Be sure to cut through the inner white layer to the gel underneath. Peel off all of the skin on once side of the each leaf, leaving a canoe-shaped half filled with gel.
    • If you have large leaves, it may be helpful to cut them into smaller pieces before peeling.
    • Discard the skin as you go so it won’t get mixed in with your gel.
  5. Scoop the gel out with a spoon or knife. The clear, soft gel is easily scoopable. Scoop it all out into a clean bowl until there’s nothing left in the leaf half.
  6. Consider mixing the gel with a natural preservative. If you have a lot of gel and you want it to keep for a month or two, mix in 500mg powdered Vitamin C or 400 IU vitamin E for every 1/4 cup of gel you have. Place the ingredients together in a blender and blend well. The gel will look foamy at first.
  7. Place the gel in a sterilized, clean glass jar. If you used the preservative, the gel will keep for several months in the refrigerator. Without it, it will keep for a week or two.
  8. Use the gel. Apply it to sunburns or other minor, surface burns. Aloe can also be used as a skin moisturizer or an ingredient in homemade body products.
    • Never use aloe vera gel on deep cuts or blistered skin. It should only be used on surface skin irritation, since it can prevent deep cuts from healing properly.
    • Try blending 1/2 cup aloe with 1/4 cup melted coconut oil to make a healing, moisturizing massage lotion.

This is my favorite especially with pumpkin Рorange or blueberries fibrous juice. I made today. I think it is very good to hair, nail and skin too. I will try this with gelatin and honey as a face mask. I think it should be consumed for up to 1-2 weeks for noticeable effects. We can find in everything: capsule, cream and all of us can do this.


Green Tea

“According to a legend once upon a time an Emperor of China sat next to a tea bush holding a cup of hot water when¬†a tea leaf fell into his cup. This is how was born the first tea. We all know now that this decoction contain¬†the most promising anti-cancer compound.”


  • Protect to heart.
  • Prevent the occurrence of cardiovascular problems.
  • Preventing tooth decay.
  • General antibacterial action.
  • Prevention of breast -, skin – and stomach cancer.
  • Protect cells and increases the body’s protective mechanisms.
  • Reducing appetite

So the best part in this that the tea contain a very much coffeine and I need this. If you want to lose weight you should to consume with one cup every morning before you have breakfast. I tried and the stamina will be better.

And if you haven’t a lot of time you can make a tea – lemonade in the afternoon and¬†you can take anywhere with you. ¬†I just recommend to you this amazing tea and the capsules and dietary supplements are good for¬†preserve to health. My favorite is a green tea with mango and ananas with¬†2 teaspoons honey. ¬†The best I love the fiber green teas. I hate the tea bags.

Green Tea Lemonade Recipe:

– Ingredients
  • 1 bag green tea
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, honey, or sweetener (adjust to taste)
  • ¬Ĺ cup boiling water
  • juice and zest of two lemons
  • 8 ounces cold water

– Instructions
  1. Add green tea bag and sugar to boiling water. Turn off heat and allow to steep for about 3 minutes to allow sugar to dissolve.
  2. Stir in juice and zest of lemons and cold water.
  3. Pour into large glass filled with ice. Garnish with lemon slices (optional)
  4. Variation:
  5. If you have a single-serve, Keurig style coffee maker, simply add your sugar to a large, empty heat-safe glass. Then, place your green tea bag into the area of your machine where a k-cup is placed. Select the smaller brewing size for your coffee cup and brew.
  6. Add lemon juice and zest to your brewed green tea and stir to combine. Add cold water, ice, and stir.
– Notes
If you prefer to not use sugar, simply follow the instructions of making the green tea lemonade but omit the sugar. Then, add your favorite sugar substitute to taste once made.

Trip in Amsterdam

My favorite city. I feel maybe this will be my real home.

The first thing what I fall in love here is the colors. This was my best birthday ever and it is not a coincidence. I met first time with calavera theme here and I really like it. I think the very cool thing in death that we thinking about positive and we celebrate this.

The second what I take notice of the small streets. I loved every step what I take in this place. I watched the houses and very cool. I don’t remember a very much things and I am so sorry about it but I want to tell you that how I felt myself in a Europe’s heart.

This was the first time when I tried to real weed. I must speak about this because it was so strong and the feelings what arose in me these still until today and my all life. I loved the first coffeeshop and the second too. We bought white widow, super silver haze and (the hardest) jack herrer. The first was sooo cool. Laugh and love. I hated the jack herrer with super silver haze and not because it is shit together. These cool stuff but not on the beach. My head died. I don’t know how I walked in the sea but I never do this again.

We have lunch in a very cute place. You should checking the Bird Thais Restaurant. The peanuts chicken with rice was so tasty. Brad Pitt and Dalai Lama have eaten here too.

One thing is sure – I want travel again and not with car. The parking is absolutely impossible. So if you decide yourself that you want travel in this amazing city you do it with train or plan.



“You think you know how the world works.” – Doctor Strange / Marvel Universe Movie

This is a rather divisive topics that mostly affects people. Someone believe in them and someone no. I think our galaxy and universe is really big for¬†all of us. I don’t think they would be evel or something bad. We don’t know about they anything so what I will write just my thoughts.

I think as an “artist” we should thinking about this with opened mind. We should accept they, the facts and reality. We are not alone in this world. I can’t use any words how big our world because we don’t really know it. Someone argue that met them. I think it is stupidness. The mental energy is very big in us and if somebody told you that he/she met them I believe it but not physically. If you don’t have a spaceship that impossible.

So we have a powerful mental energy and projection. When our mind is sufficiently opened we can see them or maybe talking with them. Many people think about this theme that it is nonsense. It’s not. We live in a space in a very small planet. I love this planet ’cause it’s so beautiful and full of life and energy what is in us too. This energy and life is so usable for communication. We must learn live with each other in the Eath and in the universe. We must learn very much about everything and sometimes they can help for us.

This drawings what I created a long time ago represent all thoughts from my mind. The use of color is just my mood but my personal favorites are the black and white and the purple – blue. I hope you have remark and share with me in this theme.

Color selection

I have written last time about the mandalas and the energy that surrounds us all. So the mandalas have a very impulsive energy.

I think in your selection should include the following 2 aspects:

  • The current state of your mind.
  • The color of the room where you want to place the mandala(s)

If you are sad and going through in a difficult period I think the perfect choice for you something in warm colors. Yellow, orange, pink and red are the amazing combination but the brown shades are perfectly too. If you insist to the cold colors that’s not a problem. The blue, purple and brown is a very sedative so in the bedroom maybe is perfect.

If you are happiness and your job, your relationship and everything is ok your choice depend just on the color of the room and furnitures.

State of your mind is a very important thing ’cause if you don’t feel well somewhere it will maybe can help you. So the rooms where you live not too right for your all isn’t lost. You can help yourself.

Example: My room is blue. My color is purple and my room in in transformation. I make soma mandala in blue – purple – brown combination. I have a spine problems and I read somewhere that the blue color can help on this. And really.
My boyfriends room was purple and we hated so it is sunny yellow now. We don’t feel like it was good often and we fought a lot simply from doldrums. I love the yellow color and absolutely help for to be high spirits. He have a dark green – yellow – red combination geometric patterned carpet so I¬†Iarranged for this the room.
My mom’s living room have peach blossom color and her color is red (not a¬†coincidence). So I made for her some orange – red – gray mandalas.

I can’t mentoin all colors in this post because I don’t have lot of time but I would recommend reading the colors meanings and effects. I hope this was helpful for you and here is some inspiration if this necessary for you.

Mandala’s energy

If you believe in our life is a very powerful energy you should maybe read my words. I think about the energy:

– we found everywhere

– we live in

– the most powerful around us

So it is in everything. The thoughts in our mind have energy. If you create a negative mind and live with your sadness you will become something what you don’t really want. This life is full of the hardest thing what we created for ourselfs because we must learn. If you have a powerful feelings just think about it but we all should live every seconds in this life with happiness and sadness.

I draw a lot of mandala because that is what make me happy. I can’t believe in this circles before I made the first for my mother. I don’t really know why I started drawing this beauties. My life changed so this creations absolutely has an energy. This is same what you have. You give the energy. Sometimes it is so hard and we just lost in ourself but it is not a real problem. It is just a way what we should walk around in our life. I think one mandala can help you. This picture is mine because the purple is my color. The all things what you should know about is your colors.¬†

The mandalas absolutely perfect in your home too as decoration.

You must know your aura’s color or the most simple choosing – what you feel your own. So I write about colors the next time.¬†



Hi everyone. This my first post on the blog and I would like to start with something what is so important to me and I hope you too. This picture what you see my favorite because I think it is a very meaningful. I thougt a lot of on the nature and why is so important for every human in this world and this is not about only the tree produces oxygen. I think the nature is our real life. I love it. When I walked on a mountintop I had a very much feelings. Real feelings. If you are fall in love with our mother nature when you know what I talking about. It is not only trees and flowers. We are connected to everything that exists on Earth. This planet is just so beautiful. I can’t understand the people why want to destroy HER. We born by the nature. We die by the nature. Our soul, our mind and our spirit leave from our bodies but never die. I made this drawing because I was filled with these thoughts. And now you can see what are in my mind.¬†
