1. How to keep wooden kitchen utensils in perfect condition?

We always recommend buying kitchen utensils made from olive wood. Regardless of the type of wood they are made of, we must take the following steps to keep them perfect for longer.

Once we have used them, we should wash them immediately with warm water and liquid soap. It is not recommended to put them in the dishwasher, because the high temperatures and humidity of the dishwasher will ruin them. Nor should we leave them soaking, as they will absorb water and encourage rotting and the formation of colonies of bacteria inside them.

After washing the wooden utensils, dry them and leave them in the open air. Do not put them in containers or drawers, as they need maximum aeration to keep them as dry as possible.

To keep them as new , we must rub them every now and then with a little extra virgin olive oil, this way we will close their pores, and we will keep them as new for a long time.

2. Autumn is a good time for a thorough cleansing of the skin.

The skin is an organ that we must take care of all year round, especially if we want to look young and attractive. We must eat a balanced diet, keep them clean and apply anti-wrinkle, moisturizing and regenerating creams. The autumn and spring seasons are when it needs a deeper care, a deeper cleaning.

If we want to keep our skin young, elastic and looking good for years to come, we need to have a deeper cleansing of our skin at least twice a year, in order to eliminate dead cells, toxins, impurities, blackheads and pimples and at the same time improve the circulation of our blood vessels.

For an in-depth skin cleansing, it would be best to visit a beauty salon that has adequate and advanced instruments for cleansing your skin. If you don’t want to go, you can also do it at home or by buying instruments.

3. Burns from fire

In the kitchen, we may accidentally spill boiling oil on our skin or touch a very hot surface that can cause burn injuries.

The first thing to do is to splash cold water on your skin. If something has stuck to your skin, do not remove it. If the burn is very serious, the first thing to do is to go immediately to a hospital or medical centre. In the case of less severe burns, we can do the following.

After having poured water and cooled the burn, we can treat the wound with honey. To do this, spread honey on your fingers and spread it on the burned area. Afterwards, place a piece of gauze over the burn. This is a very natural and effective way to heal the skin and prevent scarring.

Also, as soon as you put the honey on, you will feel a deep warmth on the burn and at the same time the pain produced by the burn will gradually reduce. As the hours and days go by, the skin itself will regenerate and the burn will be healed.

4. Aubergines with less fat

To fry any food we always recommend using extra virgin olive oil and the most suitable of all is the picual and cornicabra variety, as they are the ones that withstand higher temperatures. Many people say that using a good oil is a pity, but think about when you put it through 180 degrees, a temperature that you usually get when frying and even higher. It is the extra virgin olive oil that best withstands the high temperatures without deteriorating.

Also, olive oil is the one that least penetrates the product when frying, because it creates a film around the product and does not penetrate it. Unlike other seed oils.

However, aubergines are a product that absorbs a lot of oil when fried, because they contain tiny air bubbles inside. When frying aubergines, these bubbles are filled with oil and are closed, taking the aubergine large amount of oil. In order to avoid this absorption of oil, we can put them for about two minutes in the microwave and then cook them as you wish. This way we will achieve that the aubergines absorb less oil and are more crunchy and tasty.

5. Natural mosquito repellent

This fantastic mosquito repellent is very easy to make and very effective. Moreover, you only need 5 common ingredients that you probably have at home. For this repellent you need: limes, lemons, rosemary, eucalyptus oil, water, candles and a glass jar.

So, the first thing to do is to cut the lemons and limes and put the pieces in the glass container. Then add the sprig of fresh rosemary and the eucalyptus oil. Once you have everything inside, fill it with water and place the floating candle in it. It is now ready to use on summer nights when mosquitoes are on the prowl.

We can also place the fruit and put some objects in it to give it a touch of freshness.
