Soap Making: What a Relief..

Today I am stressed because next week we are going to submit grades and I have not even finished checking some papers. But then, I cannot allow stress to eat me so I decided to make soap. Soap making has been my refuge these past few months. It has given me a new window to creativity using the same tools, minus the temptation of indulgences and of course, minus the pounds to gain. Since I do not eat my product after slicing, I am in the better shape, hahaha.. Plus, the excitement of waiting for my soaps to cure gives me more initiative and ideas for my next batches. The best thing about this new hobby is that, we have been using organic soaps for months already. Organic soaps are far better than all the commercially produced soaps with harmful chemicals. Not to mention, our home made organic soaps are economical and saves me more than soaps bought from everywhere else.

Today’s batches consist of Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap and Turmeric Oatmeal Soap, both have Vanilla scent, and both have Sunflower oils. The former have Palm oil, while the latter don’t. Both have Canola oil, Pomace Olive oil and brown sugar for more lather. I have been studying recipes and looking into new ways to make soap. I am seeing myself opening my own organic soap shop one day.. Hmm.. I wonder what my shop is going to be called this time..

What Happens If You Don’t Ovulate?

The most wonderful thing happens to a mom, when the child is born. I know that feeling because when Lili was born, I didn’t know what to make of it, or how to describe it, but I knew that it was the best feeling of all. A feeling of accomplishment for having just gone through labor and escaping death; the feeling of great love for a new life is there just beside you– and literally is just came out from you; the feeling that you have a purpose..  But not all women have experienced that. And there are so many factors to look into.

Have you been trying to get pregnant for quite a long time? There are several factors that could be affecting your fertility. It could be due to age, ovulation troubles or even lifestyle choices. Women are born with a set number of eggs that are released every month during menstruation so when a woman gets older, her fertility also decreases. According to some women do not ovulate, hence they’re having difficulty trying to conceive. For many suffering from PCOS, this could be the cause of their ovulation difficulties. There are several reasons why a woman doesn’t ovulate and it’s best to have the doctor conduct examinations to check what the cause would be. Lifestyle choices could be the reason for having trouble conceiving. Junk, canned and processed foods are not nutritious and are not helpful when trying to conceive. One  of the first things you can do when trying to conceive is to live a healthy lifestyle. Doctors first course of action will be to treat with Clomid, a fairly inexpensive though effective prescription that stimulates ovulation.
