Every woman wants to preserve their natural beauty for longer.
If you too belong to this population, don’t ruin your exquisiteness by using over-the-counter cosmetics.
Instead of using anything artificial, you can depend on alternatives, such as natural herbs. There is infinite number of magic herbs in the world that are designed to conserve natural beauty.
Here are 10 magic herbs that can do wonders in unleashing your innate beauty.
1. Lavender – This herb works as an antiseptic and is very soothing in nature. It’s a wonderful solution for minor skin problems like psoriasis, infections, burns and sensitivity. A spritzer with lavender can be very useful. You can also use a spray bottle filled with distilled water, along with a few drops of lavender oil.
2. Neem – It is antiseptic by nature and so you can use neem oil for treating eczema, psoriasis, acne and dandruff. It might form part of your daily skin maintenance regimen because of its strong smell, but it can be used when you need something strong to treat your skin conditions.
3. Rosewater – It has been used as a mild astringent since ancient times. It is anti-inflammatory too. You can soak a cotton swab in it and apply it directly on your skin as a toner. You can also spritz it on your face at least twice a day. It also smells great.
4. Turmeric – This is an amazing antiseptic. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder with three teaspoons of plain yogurt and two teaspoons of rice flour. Apply the mixture on your face, let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse off with normal water. Don’t forget to gently scrub as you go. It is a natural cleanser and helps to add moisture to your skin.
5. Henna – Henna works excellently to provide protection and shine to your dull hair, though it does add a reddish tint to the hair. To avoid this, you can use neutral henna, which is nothing but the powdered henna leaves (Cassia obovata). Henna deeply nourishes and conditions hair.

6. Aloe – Another magic herb that is highly popular for treating scrapes and burns while you can use it on irritate skin too. Make a face mask with honey, aloe and kelp to soothe and moisturize the skin. Aloe gels are available in the market, but it is always good to have a plant on your own, as this ensures purity.
7. Rosemary – A rinse made from rosemary adds lustre to your hair as well as strengthens and soothes damaged hair. Apply strong rosemary tea after shampooing your hair.
8. Comfrey – Stuff a jar of olive oil with comfrey leaves and let it sit for about six weeks. You can use the resulting oil on chapped lips, dry hands, burns and scrapes, and even eczema. You can also melt some cocoa butter or beeswax with the oil for a salve of thick consistency.
9. Basil – This works extremely well if you’re in a polluted area that makes your skin less lustrous. Crush some basil leaves and pour a cup of hot water over the leaves to make a strong tea. Make it cool and splash it onto your face; it helps detoxifying your skin and works as a circulation-enhancing skin toner.
10. Burdock oil – It is best for healing an itchy and dry scalp. It makes your scalp dandruff-free and healthy. Rub a small amount of the oil onto your scalp after washing the hair. The oil contains phytosterols and essential fatty acids that promote hair growth and ensure a healthy scalp.
The feeling of being beautiful is simply overwhelming. Use nature’s magic herbs and stay young and beautiful naturally.

Learning to use herbs is a healing journey and a preventive way of living; nonetheless, herbs are not meant to take the place of your family doctor.
Herbs can be helpful allies in maintaining good health, but they can be powerful medications that should be treated with the same caution and respect as drugs, precisely, because herbs DO work.
Many herbs do have dangerous interactions when paired with prescription drugs; while others are contraindicated for individuals with certain health conditions.
