I LOVE Coconut Water! It's so refreshing and tropical, yeah!
It is loaded with several important nutrients, including minerals that most people don’t get enough of.
eight benefits of coconut water:
1. Good Source of Several Nutrients
Coconuts grow on large palm trees known scientifically as Cocos nucifera. Despite the name, the coconut is a fruit rather than a nut. Coconut water is the juice found in the center of a young, green coconut. It helps nourish the fruit. As the coconut matures, some of the juice remains in liquid form, while the rest ripens into the solid white flesh known as coconut meat . Coconut water is produced naturally in the fruit and contains 94 percent water and very little fat. It should not be confused with coconut milk, which is made by adding water to grated coconut meat. It contains about 50 percent water and is very high in coconut fat. Coconuts take 10–12 months to fully mature. Coconut water typically comes from young coconuts...
Queen Cleopatra always took a milk bath. I believe it was fermented cow milk's infused with honey or herbs she used. But Coconut milk is much better or just add any 1% , 2% or Goat milk. Add about gallon or less to your bath water. Also add some sea/epson salts or better yet some essential oils. infusionofstyles: Vodka N' Rose Milk Bath product. caution:if you can handle the alcohol! Also try adding a few rose petals or better yet strawberries to exfoliate your skin as well.

Nothing better than a massage for skin to skin contact!
Skin to skin
We all know what the touch of skin will do to do. But the science behind it is what we're talking about. So in essence do touch. It benefit's us.
A 2015 study published in the journal Pediatrics confirmed that for preterm newborns, skin-to-skin snuggling — sometimes referred to as “kangaroo care” — can lower the risk of sepsis, a blood infection, and boost babies’ odds of survival by improving vital signs. While some U.S. hospital neonatal care units do allow the practice, it’s not the standard. But given the scientific evidence, senior study author Grace Chan told CBS News at the time that it would “definitely be worthwhile to expand the practice here.”
It would certainly be well-received by new parents, judging by the theme of the nearly 1,000 comments on the recent post. “My daughter was born at 25 weeks. I was constantly begging to do skin to skin,” shared one woman. “Many of the nurses acted like it...
This perfectly fit's in with the Sangrialato Gelato Sugar Body Scrub coming this summer! But no wine in this one! So enjoy the gelato series of body scrubs scented after some of our favorite drinks! But no alcohol in them! Umm after reading this article maybe we'll change that a little.
So, if you have some leftover red wine in the refridge? Use it for your skin!
Red wine is a deep reddish-purple coloured wine that has been proven to be one of the healthiest alcoholic drinks. Red wine was also used for its medical properties in ancient times. There are a variety of red wines made from various ingredients available in the market today, made from ingredients like raspberries, gooseberries, raisins, figs, etc. These exquisite ingredients lend their rich properties to the wine. Keeping that in mind, one can reap the benefits of red wine and its ingredients by adding it to one's skincare routine. Here are a few such amazing uses of red wine.
It’s not just fashion that follows trends - modern skincare has its must-haves too and the latest ‘IT’ ingredient making waves in the beauty world is charcoal. Not just any old barbecued carbon though, we’re talking about activated charcoal - a specially treated charcoal which has been enhanced. The use of charcoal in the body is nothing new – it’s been used in medicine and hospitals for years, treating poisoning and overdose cases. So we knew it wouldn’t be long until the beauty world caught up with it’s magical properties!
infusionofstyles likes this one also by pureSOL. These facial and body sponges also come in Original, and Turmeric. But I also like the ego-friendly Agave material. Which infusionofstyles sells at events. So try then out for your face and body. You 'll love them both! Like I did!
Why Is Charcoal So Great?
The way that charcoal works is by attaching itself to toxins and absorbing them before your body can. When added to be...
There’s really nothing more gorgeous than a glass of sangria. It’s an easy recipe to make and you can alter it as needed. I mix up different kinds of fruit depending on what looks best at the farmers market. Strawberries are always a good idea, and any other kinds of berries work for that matter too. If it’s stone fruit season, you can add some nectarines or peaches and any kind of citrus you want. I like to add a few basil leaves right before I serve it because it gives it a pop of color and makes it extra fresh! Enjoy!

We are ALL beautiful in our own cultural ways. From face tattoos to long necks, see how the standards of beauty change from one country to the next. We influence each other a little bit taken from here and changed for this. Which is what infusionofstyles is all about using the natural resources of the land for beauty treatments. Used since the beginning of time. Past down the generations.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and you don’t have to look too far to realize that’s true. We’ve all done some things in the name of beauty (eyelash extensions, Brazilian waxes and using tanning beds, to name a few) that probably seem crazy to
people in different cultures who define beauty much differently.
Here in the U.S., we may value long, flowy hair, bronzed skin and a face free of wrinkles, but in other parts of the world, pale complexions, visible scars and shaved heads are enviable traits. Here, we explore ten very different qualities that are considered beautiful around the globe. Find o...
