Recipe To Make Natural Homemade Sexual Lubricant

Sexual lubricants are used in order to reduce the friction and add moisture between the two moving objects such as human reproductive organs or sex toys. While sexual lubricants are commonly available in drug stores, adult book stores, and novelty shops and even in some departmental stores, it becomes quite hard for people to choose the right sexual lubricant for them at times. For this purpose, it is refreshing news that sexual lubricants or lubes can be prepared at home by day to day accessories and ingredients. Preparation methods for these lubricants are easy and not very complex. They do not take a lot of time and should be stored in clean and sterilised containers in order to avoid the growth of any bacteria which might cause diseases and infections.

Preparation method

In order to prepare sexual lubricants at home one must follow certain fixed recipes. A mixture of four teaspoons of cornstarch or potato starch and a cup full of water should be taken in a bowl. If you are planning on replicating flavoured lubricants which are available in the market then you can add flavoured extracts from certain products according to your own tastes. A few drops of flavoured extracts should suffice for adding flavour to your lubricants. Following this, take the mixture in a pot and boil it for a few minutes before pulling down the heat and allowing it to simmer. Stir the mixture in order to remove lumps and make it smooth. The process is completed once the mixture cools down and is smooth.

Storing

In order to store the home made lubricants you can use boxes, jars or containers with lids. Even bowls which have tight lids can be used in order to store the mixtures. Transfer the sexual lubricant into your storage medium and put the lid on tightly. While there are some home made lubricant recipes which need to be stored in refrigerators, this particular recipe must not be stored in a refrigerator since it is susceptible to forming a skin like layer on top which is unfavourable to your needs. If you are lacking a lid then you can use a plastic wrap as a cover and store the prepared lubricant at room temperature. Make sure that the container, bowl or jar you use is properly cleaned and sterilised before storing the lubricant in it so as to avoid any bacteria which might cause infections and diseases.

Top Ten Web Browser Games

In the last few years, we have seen an increase in the use of Internet for the everyday task. Hence, agenda, encyclopedia, shopping, movies, games and even university classes can be all found online. This is because the Internet is so accessible to everyone, and reduces the cost of nearly everything. This is especially true regarding games. Consoles are still very popular, but due to the high cost of a single video games, more and more people opt for web browser games, which are often free, or allow the user to play at a minimal cost.

Frozen Emotions Means Anxiety

How does a person get emotionally frozen? When all their feelings and emotions are trapped deep, down inside and act as a one big aching pain in their body? Crying acts like a release for these emotions but when you can’t cry your body cries out for release.

In some ways it is one of the most painful thing anyone can live through. To go through their days and nights with all this pain trapped deep down inside of them. When a loved one dies and you can’t get the emotion’s out.

Of course, the emotion has to come out in some kind of way, maybe in headaches, pain in various parts of your body or in dizziness. The worst part is anxiety. You feel and appear anxious and when you get nervous

or stressed the anxiety becomes unbearable. It takes over your mind and body and soon you can’t function.

Sleeping is a thing of the past. Your mind runs and runs, and do you really remember what you were thinking about all those hours when you should have been sleeping?

The next step is seeing a Psychiatrist and taking anxiety medication which may or may not work. The side effects, if you read the papers which come along with each prescription bottle are pages long. You can’t win for losing.

What can you do when this happens to you?

1. Sports where you are moving your body is good.

2. Swimming is fabulous it really works your entire body including your mind.

3. Water aerobics is a little different from swimming. It tones your body into a sculptured piece of art.

4. Walking by yourself or with a friend is also very therapeutic.

5. Paint a room in your house. Make it colorful. You will get physical exercise and boost your self-esteem.

6. Take your dog for a good long walk. Stop and talk to the neighbors. You might meet neighbors who have lived in your neighborhood for years and never met before.

7. Talk to a therapist.

8. Join a support group.

9. Write about it. You do not need to share it with anybody just for yourself.

10. Try deep breathing. It really helps calm you down.

The object here is to keep your mind and body busy so you won’t think of all the pain trapped in your body. Someday something might happen out of the blue that you see or read and the water works will start.

Release of all the emotions trapped in your body will come tumbling out. But until that happens to you try the above suggestions or add your own. Everybody has some kind of hobby or interest they can get lost in. Get lost in yours.

Thank you for reading my article. Please feel free to read any of the various articles I have written on numerous subjects in the past years.

How to Get Rid of Fleas Naturally

Pet owners dread fleas and if presented with a flea infestation can be terribly confused. The biggest question these days is how to get rid of fleas naturally.

Pet supply stores will sell a number of flea collars. It’s virtually impossible to know which to use and almost impossible to know all of the active chemicals in these collars. When I was young our pets regularly wore an off-white plastic flea collar. We had no idea what the active flea thwarting ingredients were!  These days we wouldn’t consider hanging a “chemical belt” around the necks of our beloved pets nor would we consider letting children near any such thing. Today the chemicals used in many of these major popular brands may be poisoning our pets, and marginalizing our own health at the same time.  So what sort of home remedies for fleas are there?

More and more people are seeking natural or homeopathic alternatives to the issue of dog fleas.  In many cases you can create household flea remedies with ingredients you already have at home. Some of the most commonly used natural dog flea remedies are listed below:

  1. For the adult dogs, you could try an olive oil bath.  Anecdotal evidence suggests that the fleas will drown in the olive oil. Start from the head and work your way back so the fleas don’t move to the face where it’s really hard to pluck them off. You then just shampoo the oil out and the dog fleas wash down the drain. It will take a few shampoos before your dog’s coat feels oil free.
  2. Other people say garlic works wonders to prevent dog fleas. Some users of this solution suggest using a garlic supplement while others use a fresh garlic clove and mix it into the food. Garlic is controversial so check with your vet.
  3. Another solution is the use of household salt. Sprinkle it all over the house and let it sit for a week or more. Apparently fleas don’t seem to like salt. Your dog will lie on the carpet and, in the process, salt will get on his coat. This seems to drive the fleas away as proponents claim that shortly thereafter the fleas will be gone.
  4. Talcum powder has long been known as a natural remedy to treat dog fleas. Using baby powder for fleas is a simple process …  just cover your dog or cat with baby powder and this will smother the fleas. This remedy is often recommended for puppies or kittens that are too young to be treated with any flea chemical. A similar remedy uses baking soda.   As before, start at the head so that the fleas will move towards the back of your pet and eventually off.

There are many natural alternatives to treating/preventing dog fleas. However, with all matters pertaining to the health of our dogs and cats, please check with your doctor about potential side effects.

Coon Hunting

There was a time in the not so distant past when coon hunting was a national pastime for rural America. Young kids and veteran hunters took to the woods at night with their dogs and searched for the elusive raccoon. In the 1970’s and ’80’s there was a lot of money to be made in the sale of coon pelts, so for many families it became a way to supplement income. But for many more hunters, coon hunting was a passionate hobby. Many kids were introduced to coon hunting at a young age, and it was a hobby they could do without the close supervision of adults. Coon hunting became a great way to foster independence in kids, and teach them responsibility while taking care of their own hunting dogs.

But fast-forward to today and the hobby has all but died out. Over-zealous animal rights groups have won the battle against coon hunting, virtually erasing it from mainstream America. While raccoon pelts can still be sold, due to changing fashion styles, they are not in high demand as they once were. There are also signs that raccoon populations have soared since there is nothing to keep their numbers controlled. More raccoons are seen on the side of the road than ever before, and in the last decades they’ve become a nuisance to both rural living and city neighborhoods.

Coon hunting is a practice undertaken at night, which can make the sport much more challenging, and much more exciting. But it is for this reason that a good coon dog or two is necessary to the hunt. A good coon dog should listen exceptionally well; when hunting in the dark of night a hunter needs to be able to have full trust in his dog. It’s also a plus if the dog is vocal; when he picks up a track the dog should start to bark as he’s following it. This will let the hunter know the dog is actually on a track and not just forever sniffing around. When the dog finally gets the coon treed, he should be very vocal, a hunter should encourage this trait in his dog. The hunter also has some options for keeping track of his dogs when hunting. He can purchase a collar with lights powered by small batteries, or a vest that reflects when a flashlight is shined on it. However the hunter chooses to outfit his dog, coon hunting is a pastime that is well worth the effort put into it, and provides a great experience for everyone who partakes.

Get Yourself a Great Bedtime Routine

Sleep and our sleeping related habits are once again being subjected to great scrutiny in the media, with many statistics being presented highlighting how important quality sleep is, and how few of us seem to be getting it.

We’ve been told that 90% adults say they don’t get enough sleep, 25% struggle with Sunday night insomnia and that sleep-related issues cost UK businesses £40 billion pounds each year, the equivalent of 200,000 lost work days, due to absenteeism, accidents and poor performance.

With this in mind we need to focus on ensuring that we support our own great bedtime routine. Here are some tips;

– Consistency is often an important contributor to a good sleep routine, where you have a designated time to switch off from work, eat healthily and aim to go to bed and get up at the same time. Training your mind and body as to when to wind down is the key to supporting an effective sleep pattern.

– Be proactive in dealing with each day’s stresses. Ask yourself if you’ve done all you reasonably can to address a particular area of concern, then aim to let it go until further input from you is required. Being disciplined is important in order to calm your ‘fight or flight’ approach to stress. Commit to good daytime habits and take regular breaks throughout the day, stopping for lunch and aiming to get some fresh air and exercise; all ways to support a positive approach to work/life balance and good sleep.

– Spend quality time with family and friends as well as scheduling some ‘me time’ for the things that are important to you. This may require you becoming more assertive and saying ‘no’ to some of the demands made upon you, but taking good care of yourself means being clear about how much of your time you’re prepared to compromise.

– Many people need to maximise their use of space, especially when they work from home. If you’ve set up an office in your bedroom be sure to screen it off at the end of each working day. Ensure that your bedroom is a calm haven, the place where you close the door at bedtime and relax. Try to keep it free from clutter and an excess of technology, as its presence can be a distraction.

– Be firm about technology. Aim to turn off your phone and gadgets two hours before you go to bed, so avoiding the temptation to check in ‘just one more time’. Have set times for checking emails and social media so that you become more focused and time efficient. Then allow yourself time before bed to calm and still your mind. Keep your phone away from the bed as its blue light has been found to affect sleep quality.

– Also, if you work from home or spend a lot of your time there have a cut off time when you turn everything off and introduce a routine that signifies the end of the busy part of your day. Turn your phone to answerphone, close your office door, go for a walk and change out of your daytime clothes – all ways to draw a line under your working day.

– Save any meaningful/important/stressful conversations for a more appropriate time. Last thing at night or when one person is busy, distracted or over-tired will serve neither of you well and can play on your mind when you should be preparing to sleep. Both agree when to have the discussion and ensure that it then happens. That way you can confidently ‘park up’ your issues, safe in the knowledge that you won’t forget to raise the matter at a better time.

– Do you come home after work feeling mentally tired and jaded but physically under-exerted? Many people have work that requires either mental or physical effort, so that they end up tired in one area but not the other. Try to find some balance by exercising mentally, with quizzes and crosswords, or by walking, swimming and physical activity, so that you’re better able to fall asleep. Otherwise you may be restless and unable to relax.

– Prepare for the day ahead so that there’s no need to clutter your mind with concerns or worries about the coming day. Put your clothes out the night before or adopt a uniform outfit or colour. Use lists to avoid the stress or fear of forgetting something. Being organised can help you feel more in control and better able to sleep.

– A relaxing bath or shower pre-bed is a good way to symbolically wash away the days stresses and strains and prepare for bed. Some people like to read, enjoy a hot, milky drink, meditate, listen to relaxing music or practice some yoga.

Being committed to a positive bedtime routine can be a great investment and an important way to support a good night’s sleep.

Owning a Pet Otter

It may seem trendy to own an exotic pet, but owning an otter as a pet is illegal in most localities without a permit. They are considered wildlife and have requirements that are different from those of the average household pet.

Reasons Not to Own a Pet Otter

If you are considering applying for a permit to own a pet otter, here are some reasons why you may not want to. Of course, if you work at a zoo or wildlife sanctuary, then these reasons won’t concern you as much.

Otters Bite

Otters have very sharp teeth, and they bite.

Otters Spray

Otters have a musky scent and spray very much like a skunk’s spray. They are definitely not inside animals.

Otters are Nocturnal

They like to hunt for food at night, and the last sound you need at night while you are trying to sleep is that of an otter splashing in your swimming pool.

Otters Need to Be Near a River

Otters like to hunt fish in a river and can eat lots of food in a day. Chances are, you don’t have secure access to a river.

Otters Learn Survival Skills from Their Mother

Otters need to learn how to survive from their mother. Their mother teaches them these skills up to 18 months of age.

Caring for an Otter

Once you have a permit for your otter, there are some special requirements that you will have to consider.

Water for Swimming and Food

Otters spend the majority of their time in the water. They like to live in very cold water, and they have a high metabolic rate to keep them warm. They can even hold their breath under water for up to 10 minutes. They are playful creatures that like to hunt for fish and eat lots of shellfish, frogs, sea urchins and invertebrates.

However, because you are keeping them in an unnatural enclosure, these foods will have to be introduced. Otters eat 15-25 percent of their body weight a day, and that’s a lot of fish. In the wild, they can spend up to five hours a day hunting for food. They can grow to be 100 pounds in weight, so plan on supplying them with lots of food each day.

Mating Season Behavior

Otters can get very aggressive in the mating season so you have to make sure that household pets or other animals are not in the vicinity because an otter will drag an animal into the water and eat it.

By whatever means you obtained a baby otter and want to raise it yourself (don’t go near an adult otter), you can see there is more to caring for a pet otter than meets the eye. For your own sake and the sake of the otter, why not hand it over to the authorities who will know what to do with it for its survival.

Children’s Books to Develop Vocabulary

Books written to help improve the reading skills of children should be ahead of their understanding by an increment that is readily attainable. The first books in large print with lots of colourful pictures must necessarily be in simple language and employ a limited vocabulary. These are intended to be read with the aid and encouragement of a sympathetic adult: a teacher, parent or older sibling. With the passing of time, more and more reading is done alone, but the acquisition of new words continues apace, understood from context or by referral to an adult or a dictionary. What is needed to drive this process is writing that turns pages and cannot easily be put down.

Children acquire their mother tongue by hearing it spoken and learning the meaning of words from the context in which they are used. The process goes on for some years before the child starts asking the meaning of new words, and by this time the words have become longer, rarer and more technical. The same progress is made with reading. Many new words are picked up almost unconsciously by the avid reader while others require recourse to a dictionary, and the process continues throughout adult life as anyone who has read the novels of Vladimir Nabokov will testify.

The most important function of a children’s book for silent reading is to entertain; the educational function must be well concealed. There are various means by which new words can be introduced. The English language contains many synonyms and their use can avoid the unattractive repetition of the same word. In such cases, the general meaning of new words should be immediately apparent, although understanding subtle shades of difference may take longer and involve further reading. Some categories of words are eagerly absorbed by children and these can be used to awaken broader interests. Jargon, related to new developments in communication, sport and popular science, is readily acquired, and the characteristic speech of particular communities or historical periods can also be used to introduce new words.

At one time, it was common for adults to address children using only words and phrases that they expected the hearer to know, but nowadays such talking down is much less common. Many teachers and parents make a habit of addressing children and adults alike, expecting a question if something is not understood. Authors need to take more account of the age of their readers, to avoid too great a level of difficulty, but the underlying aim to stretch the young mind is the same.

Twilight Reaches Beyond Twinkies

If you haven’t heard of the ‘Twilight’ phenomena, chances are you soon will. The much-anticipated film, based on the book by Stephanie Meyer, will be released on December 12th. Starring Robert Pattinson (from the Harry Potter films as the doomed Cedric), Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautor, pre-teens aren’t the only fans who are planning costumes for the premiere. The fan-base ranges from 11 to 60-year-olds, the same demographic as the Potter series. What is ‘Twilight,’ exactly?

The story begins with a girl, Bella Swan, who moves to Forks, a small town in Washington. She’s a misfit who refuses to mold herself to the status quo. She meets Edward Cullen, who’s a vampire. He’s aloof and unfriendly initially, but they end up falling in love. Edward’s family only feed on animals, not people, and the reason they can’t be together is that there is some chemical in Bella that makes Edward crave to feed. On her. A doomed Romeo and Juliet.

There has always been a human fascination with vampires. From Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ to Anne Rice’s ‘Vampire Chronicles,’ the archetypal fangs have become a symbol. It’s particularly attractive to preadolescents, who are dealing with mixed emotions and changing bodies. The feeling of being alien, unlike other people. Special. For adults, vampires represent immortality, which is something most people would jump at if they could. There’s also a sense of eroticism- a ‘sharing’ of emotions or physicality through a passive takeover of the stronger creature.

The film set was recently broken into by Twilight Moms, an organization supporting not just the series but fans everywhere. Their reason for doing it was to get photos that they could post on their site. While stalking hockey moms might sound a bit surreal, it only goes to show that fans of the series are dedicated and multi-aged. On Youtube, the site has had a minimum of 6 million hits worldwide for the teaser alone. If you aren’t already a fan, you may want to check out the book before seeing the film. ‘Twilight’ is most definitely a force to be reckoned with, regardless which age group you fall into.

Kids Outdoor Toys and Fun

There are many different vices children have these days when thinking of items to occupy their minds and bodies We have gone from a simple world to a place where electronic devices such as MP3 players, game consoles and portable entertainment devices are a necessity instead of luxuries. Not only is this keeping our children from remaining active outdoors, but also limiting their social skills by keeping them segregated from other children in the neighbourhood that they would otherwise interact with on a regular basis.

Being outdoors is an essential part of life, whether you are a child or an adult. Fresh air, sunshine and regular activity is all part of a balanced lifestyle no matter what age you are. Our society these days has seem to have lost its desire for personal interaction from face-to-face contact such as visiting neighbours and playing cards, going for bike rides with friends down the street or even volunteering in our communities.

Outdoor toys such as trampolines and climbing apparatuses are age-old tools that have been around for many years and enjoyed by an assortment of generations. These wonderful recreational devices have promoted not only physical health but also friendships with children in the neighbourhood who are keen on coming over to play and spend time interacting.

There are a variety of climbing structures available for purchase that range in price dependent on their size and manufactured materials. Some climbing toys have built-in playhouses, rope ladders or bridges, and even incorporated slides. One popular style of outdoor climbing frames is made with wood. Wood is durable, pre-treated and can be left outdoors all year long without any significant damage to the play set. Some play structures are made with a durable plastic material but they do need to be disassembled and stored during the winter months to avoid weather damage.

Trampolines come in a number of sizes and styles compared to the types of trampolines that our parents and kids before us were exposed to. These days trampolines are very common throughout backyards with school-aged children. With much focus on childhood safety and preventative measures with trampolines, you are able to purchase an enclosure screen for your trampoline in order to avoid any unnecessary injuries that may be caused during the time your children are using this device.

There is no better way to encourage your child’s physical health than to purchase an outdoor play structure or trampolines so that they are tempted to spend their spare time outdoors having fun rather than inside sitting and watching television or playing their computer games and eating unhealthy snacks. Obesity is one of the major causes of childhood diabetes and typically leads to obesity in adulthood. Once your child has grown and weight control is an issue, it can be a more serious problem when they are adults than trying to promote good physical health earlier on in life.
