Natural remedies for aching joints
Every eventually starts feeling a bit achy and creaky in the joints and the cold weather really doesn't help if the problem has started setting in.
Whether through injury, age, or another reason, achy joints can be painful, uncomfortable and can reduce your ability to perform day-to-day tasks. However, there are natural remedies that can help to reduce the discomfort and ease your joints.
Black cumin is a great natural anti-inflammatory as it contains a number of antioxidants and flavonoids. This can help to reduce swelling in the joints and enable them to move more freely. It is also rich in salicylic acid, which works as a form of natural aspirin, helping to ease pain in your joints.
Many people find that it helps to reduce pain very quickly and so it is a good alternative to prescription medications if your joints are aching particularly badly at any point.
The spice can be taken in capsule form or it can be boiled in water and drunk twice daily to improve joint movement and reduce pain.
Evening primrose oil
This oil contains high amounts of gamma-linolenic acid, which has been shown in a number of studies to reduce joint pain when taken on a daily basis. It can also help to regulate hormones and improve the function of nerves, which can reduce a number of issues including migraines.
This is another spice that is particularly good for reducing aching joints. Turmeric includes some particularly powerful antioxidants, such as curcumin, which help to reduce inflammation in the joints, which can ease pain. Curcumin also helps to reduce demineralisation in the bones, which can also constitute to weak and painful joints.
Turmeric is particularly beneficial to those that suffer from aching joints as a result of rheumatoid arthritis, as it is a very effective pain reliever.
One of the easiest ways to take turmeric everyday is to mix it with black pepper and water. You can also add vegetable oil, which will help with its absorption.
Green tea is an easy natural remedy to take every day and is very simple to fit into your daily routine, benefitting your joints in the long run. The tea helps in the production of collagen, which helps to strengthen cartilage and is also beneficial for your skin.
Blueberries and strawberries should be introduced into your diet if you suffer from joint pain and stiffness. The 'Journal of the American College of Nutrition' found that these berries reduce the build-up of C-reactive proteins, which causes aching joints and inflammation.
The berries also contain high levels of certain antioxidants that are beneficial to reducing joint pain. Eating them on a regular basis may help to reduce any aching in your joints and improve movement.
Omega-3s that are found in fish oil are great anti-inflammatories, making them an effective supplement for those that suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.

- 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 Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
