Getting more green
Many of us want to be more green in our actions, but like many things in life, its one of those ambitions that isn’t always fulfilled.
However, there are large number of things that can be done to help in the fight for a greener world.
And the good thing is that many of the steps you can take don’t have to take up much time or effort at all.
For example, if you want to use less energy in the home, something a lot of people would like to do, one simple piece of advice would be turn lights off when appropriate.
It’s something we’ve all heard before, but that doesn’t mean we always follow the tip!
At this time of year especially, when you automatically switch a light on in the morning, you might find that, if you give it some thought, this is a use of electricity that isn’t strictly necessary.
If you’re simply having a spot of breakfast in your dining room, do you really need the light on when there is plentiful sun streaming through the window?
Recently, Solartwin.com managing director Barry Johnston recomended that people try using an energy monitor to give themselves an idea of the energy they could avoid using.
“If you walk around the house, switching stuff off, and you can see the energy drop and then switch things back on and see what uses more energy than others,” he said.
He also talked about the high level of energy a kettle uses, relative to a light bulb.
“If you are making a cup of tea, it is only sensible to boil as much as you need and not double,” he said.
The expert also advised switching baths for showers, so next time you reach for the herbal shampoo, it might be wise to opt for a quick rinse under the shower, rather than filling the tub up with water.
When it comes to washing your clothes, meanwhile, he suggested that this should be done at 30 degrees, rather than a higher temperature.
This is more environmentally friendly that a hotter wash, he said, while also recommending that people leave clothes to dry naturally if possible, rather than using a tumble drier.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
