A reliable remedy for cracked heels has been found!

·         As if our hard-working feet don't hurt enough, some of us have to contend with cracked heels. When the sensitive skin on the bottom of the feet and heels becomes too dry, it can split open, leaving painful cracks called fissures on your heels. Those cracks may not only make it painful to walk, but can also lead to serious infections. Cracks in the heels are generally caused by insufficient moisture. These cracks can become sore and may even bleed. Seriously dry feet can occur for a number of reasons, including:
·         Cold winter weather
·         Dehydration, or not drinking enough water
·         Not moisturizing your feet
·         Taking very hot baths or showers
·         Soaking in a hot bath for too long or too frequently
·         Using harsh, drying soaps on your feet
·         Scrubbing feet dry
·         Having diabetes
·         Heel fissures and cracks occur when the skin loses its moisture content and dries out and cracks. When the feet become too dry, heel fissures can develop quite easily. The heel pad wants to expand outward, but the skin is not pliable enough to expand with it, so it cracks. As the skin cracks, it may begin to bleed. These deep heel fissures can allow bacteria and viruses to enter the body, leading to infection and illness.
·         Healmate is an Ayurvedic ointment for cracked feet. It is useful in painful cracks and softening of soles of foot . This cream is recommended in cases of cracked heels / soles or rough feet. Wash feet with Luke warm water and dry it then apply the required quantity of Healmate Cream over the affected area twice daily, in the morning after a bath /shower and at bedtime.

6 Great Properties of Mustard Oil That Make It So Irreplaceable

There are some ingredients that can never be replaced in the Indian household. Not only are they essential in creating various regional delicacies, their uses are manifold and extend beyond the confines of the kitchen. One such example is mustard oil.
It is hard to imagine life without a bottle of mustard oil at home. It is believed to have miraculous properties, and therefore is used as a remedy to treat cold, boost immunity, encourage hair growth, provide nourishment to skin (especially in case of babies who are massaged with mustard oil during winters and made to sunbathe for a dose of Vitamin D and also to strengthen the bones), oral health, so on and so forth.
Mustard oil (rai ka tel) is extracted from mustard seeds (black, brown and white), and is reddish brown or amber in colour. It has been commonly used in North and East India since ancient times, and comes with a bevy of health benefits.
1. Good Source of MUFA
Mustard oil is highly recommended for the reason that it is full of monounsaturated fatty acids. Our body needs oil in the ratio of 3:1 - three parts of polyunsaturated fatty acids and one part of saturated fatty acids. Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) come under polyunsaturated. Mustard oil is full of MUFA which is very essential for our health. It's good for the heart, lightens skin, helps in hair growth, prevents premature graying of hair, etc.
2. Promotes Heart Health
According to a study done by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, including mustard oil in your regular diet could prove to be beneficial to your heart health. Being a rich source of MUFA, it lowers bad cholesterol in the body, thus keeping a check on blood fat levels and helping in circulation. The results also stated that the use of mustard oil, which is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, was associated with a lower IHD risk (Ischemic Heart Disease) than with the use of sunflower oil.
3. Protects Against Infection
Mustard oil has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. Its external as well as internal usage is said to help in multiple ways to fight against infections, including digestive tract infections.
4. Helps Blood Circulation
According to Ayurveda, using mustard oil for body massage improves blood circulation, skin texture and releases muscular tension. It also activates the sweat glands and hence helps in throwing out toxins from the body. As such, it acts as a natural cleanser.
5. Good for Skin
Mustard oil is loaded with vitamin E, an essential nutrient for the skin. Therefore, when applied on the skin, it is said to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and acts as a sunscreen. Traditionally, in India, babies are often massaged with mustard oil. However, recent studies have stated that mustard oil massage should be done with limited quantities. Too much of it could prove to be harmful and cause irritation.
6. Relief from Cough and Cold
Mustard oil has been an age-old ingredient for the treatment of cough and cold. This is because of its heating property that helps in clearing congestion from the respiratory tract. Mustard oil steam treatment is often recommended as a home remedy, and you can also rub about a teaspoon of it on your chest before sleeping to let it work its magic. It is perhaps the very pungency that helps in clearing sinuses, much like wasabi. Another home remedy is to make a mixture of about one tablespoon warm mustard oil and two to three cloves of garlic and rub it on your feet.
Pitambari Raishakti Mustard Oil is extracted with best quality seeds, espelled by cold process to preserve its natural properties, anti-oxidants & essential oils, and is highly nutritive, rich in flavor & delicious in taste.
