Mia The Green Balm







I was just murmuring to my self that this so small where / what can I use it for ?But than I read the booklet and I see that I can use it on bites, eczema, itchy, dry skin, I have an allergic skin and my body gives reactions to lots of things that I can not figure out, like I wake up with bites on my body whether it is freezing cold or hot. When  I am angry or frustrated I notice lots of spots on my body, than I can not resist itching my skin and than I spread them to my whole body, right let’s cut it short, Today is one of those days that I have bites and reactions on my body and I decided to use a bit of Green Balm on my knee, and I stopped scratching and itching that area and now it is getting smaller.

Alvarez Gomez Agua de Colonia

 

 

Capping one hundred years of success in its native Spain, 2012 belongs to Agua de Colonia. Still blended by hand in
Madrid, Alvarez Gomez 'intense signature scent is – just like its homeland – bold, brightand dynamic. This light, fresh
creation is one of the industry’s few originals and so it’s hardly surprising that it remains Spain’s most popular home produced cologne to this day. A fragrance as vivid as its canary-yellow packaging, Agua de Colonia’s formulation remains impressively unchanged since its conception one hundred years ago. Infusing tart-lemon primary notes with Geranium, Eucalyptus and Spanish Lavender, this handsome, uplifting, Mediterranean cologne also combines citrus boldness with secondary notes of Rosemary, English Lavender and Bergamot for a crisp, European sensibility. With its rich heritage and timeless appeal, Agua de Colonia is already causing a stir in the USA
and Japan having only recently been introduced to foreign markets for the first time. Its success overseas is set to continue as it extends its reach across the UK in this its centenary year. Every month more discerning stockists are discovering for themselves just what makes
this iconic scent, and accompanying bath and body products, so popular.

 

 

 

History of Eau de Cologne

 

As being a Mediterranean girl colognes takes a big role in my life, I can say  it’s like something I can not live without,

Colognes' are usually citrusy but you can find different versions as well, like lavender, orange blossom, bergamot, Rose and Tobacco

Just a little info for you before I start to give you information about this specific Alvarez Gomez’s Colognes'

Colonge is a toiletry perfume style that originated from Cologne, Germany. It is nowadays a generic term for scented formulations in typical concentration of 2-5% essentials oils.However as of today cologne is a blend of extracts, alcohol, and water

The original Eau de Cologne is a spirit-citrus perfume launched in Cologne by an Italian Pharmacist Johann Maria Farina, and he named his new fragrance Eau de Cologne

Unlike today’s cosmetic purposes they used it in medical purposes at those times. because of the mixture, they used it to treat digestive system diseases, people use to mixed it  with wine or just  few drops to sugar , it is also mainly used on faints , it is also used as an  Antiseptic mouth, wash,  ( let me tell you it is perfect for tooth aches) also used  for cleaning wounds, muscle and joint pain solution was a great friction. they also say that Cologne have therapeutic properties.

 

If you are interested just let me know, on my next posts, I will mention about how to make your own colognes’ at home Smile
