A Health Tip: Honey For That Night-Time Cough

Ever woken up in the middle of the night by a cough? Itchy throat, coughing non-stop and still sleepy. Ugh! It's just plain horrible.

Enter good old honey! Such a lifesaver. I could sing its praises all day! Lol.

Research suggests that honey is quite effective at quelling coughing at night

I use it all the time whenever I feel a pesky cough coming just before bed.

NOTE: Use 100% pure, raw honey. Any form of refined honey may not be as effective, if at all. 

Take up to 2 teaspoonfuls at bedtime to ensure a good night's sleep.

Sweet dreams...

2 Protein Hair Treatments You Can Do At Home

Do you know that hair is made of protein? Yep, true story.:) 
Everyday styling and environmental pollution can strip moisture out of your hair. The best way to put moisture and shine back  to your hair is  by getting a protein treatment.
 Protein smooths the cuticle of the hair, creating smoother strands and stronger hair. Protein treatments at the salon can be quite expensive. So, instead of shelling out on those pricey treatments every 4 to 6 weeks, why don't you make your own easily at home?
