Can Mother’s Ruin Really Get Rid Of Hayfever?

Posted on July 18, 2017 by Melanie Brown

What do you take to help you with the summer sniffles, otherwise known as dreaded hayfever. There are so many available products on the market but sometimes they do not do the job.

If you are a sufferer, you will know how debilitating it can be. The common signs are a runny nose, streaming eyes, sneezing fits and sinus problems which can lead to headaches. It’s just not fun! You have to avoid the summer barbeque and sit inside with a box of tissues as your companion.

Now research is suggesting that having a gin or vodka can change all these problems!

'Asthma UK' have noted that turning to gin or vodka can curb hayfever symptoms.

People who usually drink beer and cider during the summer months, noticed that their symptoms worsened due to the fermentation process involved in the production of these drinks. There is a high histamine content in alcohols which leave you susceptible to sneezing fits.

On the other hand, Mother’s Ruin, gin, does not contain sulphites which can often provoke asthma and hayfever.

If you are going to have a tipple, remember to do it in moderation. I don’t want you to be holding me as being responsible for drinking too much. Ha ha.

Hey - are you a hayfever sufferer? If yes, I can help you with a product that has been a great help for me this summer. Just PM me through my Facebook Page and I will be happy to tell you more. I will also send you an e-Report on how to Master Hayfever this summer.

What Do You Do To Get Your Energy Boost?

Posted on June 30, 2017 by Melanie Brown

Do you sometimes feel as if you are running around like a headless chicken just to keep up with everyone and everything?

You can get so caught up with this fast pace world that you end up with flagging energy levels. You want to be ‘full of beans’ and so you might reach out for that bar of chocolate, an energy drink or a Starbuck’s coffee. However, this is only a temporary measure. As soon as you’ve taken your energy booster, you start flagging again, and might have added on a few unnecessary pounds from eating the wrong things.

I have been guilty of this in the past.

However, there are ways to give yourself a natural boost of energy without suffering for it.

Here are 6 ways to naturally give you an energy boost: -

1.Water – Technically not a food but it is very important to raising your energy levels. Often you can be dehydrated and this results in tiredness. Drink lots of water to combat this.

2.Bananas – These are a great pick me up. They contain digested carbohydrates which the body can use for energy and are also fab after a long work out. The body loses a lot of potassium during exercise as a result of sweating. Bananas are rich in potassium and helps to replace what has been lost in exercise.

3.Avoid Crash Food Energy Drinks – These are a big no-no as they are loaded with caffeine and sugar. After you have drunk one of these, it can quickly result in another ‘crash’ and you start craving for another.

4.Cut back on caffeine – It is recognised that Caffeine is a stimulant and too much makes you restless, causes heart palpitations and disturbs your sleep. Not the kind of thing you want for an energy boost.

5.Socialize – Making and meeting up with friends is fun and fills you up with energy.

6.Dark Chocolate – Increases energy by boosting the blood flow to the key areas of the brain for up to 3 hours. The darker the chocolate the better as it contains less sugar.

7.My Favourite - Bee pollen – This has been regularly referred to as a 'Superfood' because it is packed with B vitamins, carbohydrates and amino acids all of which go towards enhancing your stamina. When taken over time, it has been said that Bee Pollen tablets can boost your vitality.

I take these on a regular basis and have noted how it has supported my lifestyle with regards to allergies as well as supporting my need for a natural energy booster.

Bee Pollen Is The Best!

Posted on June 28, 2017 by Melanie Brown

I am very happy today. I bumped into one of my friends, who hates summer. He struggles to walk his dog and often has to get someone to do it for him. He is also unable to play football with his nephew and cannot open a window without his eyes watering and beginning to itch.


When I visited him last, his nose was bunged up, his eyes were bloodshot and his asthma was worse than normal.What made it worse was that the medication the pharmacy was suggesting was having no effect at all and he was just wasting his money.


So I started telling him about the bee pollen tablets I use and the positive impact they have had on my life. He asked for some and I gladly gave him some. When I saw him today, he was smiling and thanked for me for the tablets. He said that he was bowled over with the results.


This shows that you don’t have lock yourself inside in the summer and that there is a way that you can get outside and combat the ‘summer sniffles’.

The Wonders of Bee Pollen!

Posted on June 23, 2017 by Melanie Brown



This is a photo of me enjoying the summer.

Well, what's the big deal some of you may be asking.  
Up until a couple of years ago, I used to fear the summer months. Whilst most people enjoyed being out in the sun, I seemed to get the ‘Summer Sniffles’. I would enviously watch as others would enjoy picnics sitting on the grass or playing with their young families.  


I on the other hand would experience watery, itchy eyes, a runny nose and constant sneezing. I tried all sorts of prescribed medication, but they never seem to help. Well that’s until recently.

A good friend of mine recommended bee pollen.

I personally noted after starting the tablets, that my typical symptoms seemed to disappear. I usually have to wear my sunglasses to protect my eyes from grass pollen. For the first time in years I could actually leave my glasses off and my eyes were not streaming. Even the sneezing stopped. I couldn’t believe it. Best of all, I didn’t feel as tired and drained. The symptoms often left me feeling exhausted.

So what is bee pollen?

Bee pollen is made by the honeybee and is also the food of young bees. It contains nearly all the nutrients that humans need and is rich in proteins and vitamins.

Bee pollen has numerous advantages but here are my favourite five benefits:-

  1. Energy booster – Because bee pollen is packed with rich nutrients, it is a fantastic natural energy booster which fights off tiredness and boosts your stamina.
  2. It has great soothing qualities - Helps with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. The amino acids and vitamins protect the skin and help with cell regeneration.
  3. Looks after the respiratory system – Bee pollen contains a high quantity of antioxidants that have been noted to have a positive effect on the lining of the lungs which means that the onset of asthma is reduced.
  4. Brilliant for dealing with allergies – Research has shown that the pollen seems to reduce the presence of histamine which has meant that some allergies disappear. This confirmed that bee pollen was effective in respect of respiratory diseases.
  5. Aids the Digestive System – Bee pollen contains enzymes which help the body in getting all the nutrients that we need from food that we need.

If you want an allergy free summer, I would definitely recommend Bee Pollen.

So, What's So Fab About Shea Butter?

Posted on December 02, 2016 by Melanie Brown

I love Shea Butter. I use it in most of my handmade products. It’s creamy to the touch and produces great results.
It is a beautiful rich butter which is a superb moisturizer and beautifully hydrates your skin.
Shea Butter is known for its benefits for skincare. It is great for dry skin, skin irritations, scarring and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
This gorgeous butter is an excellent anti-ager as it is packed with anti-oxidants such as Vitamin E and A. If you want fantastic youthful looking skin, then take a look at this product.
Shea Butter nourishes and revitalizes your skin giving it a healthy and vibrant glow.
Especially around winter, Shea Butter is excellent for enhancing the appearance of your skin which can become ashy and dry due to the cold conditions.
I have created a body butter, Citrus Delight Whipped Body Butter, which has Shea Butter as its main ingredient. This is combined with jojoba oil, coconut oil and vitamin E to produce a rich body butter which leaves your skin feeling soft and luxurious. A little goes a long way.
I love using this straight after a hot bath. As you rub the butter into your skin, it absorbs into the layers of your skin leaving it feeling silky and smooth. This is a beautiful treat after a long tiring day.
