Green Angel Seaweed Powder

In my postbox I have recently been reading about seaweed, Seaweed is a natural rich source of many of the vitamins and trace elements vital to good health and there are many ways that we can take advantage of all this natural bounty.

Seaweed is a great ingredient for use in cooking and there are many recipes around to help us to do so. Welsh lava bread and fried seaweed are just two examples. Seaweed can also be incorporated into skincare products or ground into a powder that has many uses. It is this latter that I am now going to tell you about.

Green Angel Seaweed Powder is not only therapeutic on a physical level but also on a mental and emotional one too, helping you to soothe and gently ease away the tensions of the day - the aching muscles, the irritability, the headaches and the insomnia, When tension and stress continue over a period of time, the nervous system may become exhausted and enthusiasm for living melts away.

Green Angel Seaweed powder gives support to those suffering from anxiety, grief, shock, depression, exhaustion, etc. and also helps to relieve arthritic and rheumatic pain To use your Green Angel Seaweed Powder, run your bath with hot water only, put 2 tablespoons of powder into the bath whilst the water is running, (do not allow the bath to get too full as you will later put cold water in), leave for 10 minutes for the seaweed to infuse into the bathwater, put in sufficient cold water to make the bath comfortable, rest and relax in the bath for at least 20 minutes to benefit from the therapeutic properties of the seaweed.Gently pat yourself dry with a soft bath towel.

Did you know you can use Heritage Leathercare on wood?

Did you know you can use Heritage Leathercare on wood? Being beeswax based, it is really good and leaves a brilliant shine. You do, however, need to buff it up!

I was called to have a look at some problems in a church. The church had recently undergone some restoration but some areas of wood (panelling and pews) appeared to be much lighter, almost to having lost their colour. I tried Heritage Woodcare which certainly removed grime and did put some colour in but not really enough. I then tried a coloured (brown) leather polish but this did not really do much at all. My last attempt was with Heritage Leathercare. To my surprise this really did the trick. The colour was restored and the problem area was indistinguishable from the surrounding wood.

I also have some coffee tables with a leather insert. These are really easy to clean with Heritage Leathercare. I am able to use the one product on both the leather and the wood surrounds but, as I have said, I do need to buff the wood up.

How can I rewax a wax jacket?

My recent posts have been telling you about Heritage Leathercare and how you can use it on leather furniture, clothing and footwear. This has prompted a reader to get in touch and ask about rewaxing a wax jacket. I will use this post then to tell you how to use your Heritage to do just that,

Although Heritage Leathercare does have cleaning properties there are some instances where you may need to do a seperate clean (e.g. to remove bird droppings, etc.) In this instance I would suggest you "wash" these areas of the garment with pure soap. Make a solution of soap and water, dip in a soft, clean cloth, gently squeeze the cloth till you have taken most but not all the water out and wipe the areas you wish to clean. Make sure your coat is totally dry before going on to the next stage.

So having cleaned your jacket where necessary and having made sure it is totally dry, take your tub of Heritage Leathercare and the sponge (provided), wipe the sponge across the surface of the polish removing any surplus by wiping the loaded sponge across the inside edge of the tub. You then simply wipe the loaded sponge on your jacket in circular motions ensuring you do not leave the jacket greasy. Assuming your jacket is not greasy, when you have finished wiping, it is now ready for wear, clean, rewaxed and water resistant.

How do I clean and polish my leather jackets, skirts and boots?

Continuing my theme of Heritage Leathercare and its' various uses, I will. in this post, tell you how to use it on clothing and footwear.

Heritage Leathercare is ideal for use on clothing, particularly Motor Bike Leathers, Skirts, Jackets, etc. and as it is colourless, it can be used on any colour. It is also ideal for leather boots (riding boots, work boots, etc) and shoes.

As it is colourless, Heritage Leathercare can be used on any colour although white or similar light colours, may need to be cleaned first. Simply wipe over with a soapy cloth, paying special attention to areas where there is a buildup of marks. Ensure your leather is totally dry and you are then ready. On darker colours your Heritage will clean as it polishes.

Take your sponge (provided) and wipe over the surface of your Heritage Leathercare, removing any surplus by wiping on the inside edge of your container. You then simply wipe over your leather in circular motions, ensuring your leather is not greasy (if it is then just buff up using a clean and dry soft cloth). Heritage Leathercare feeds, polishes,and protects your leather, leaving a water resistant finish.

As stated your Heritage will clean and polish your leather boots and shoes at the same time, keeping them soft and water resistant It's ease of use makes it especially suitable for motor bike boots and knee length leather fashion boots.

Note: Heritage Leathercare is NOT recommended for use on suede, nubuck or nappa leathers.

Heritage Leathercare - feeds, polishes, protects

In my last post I told how I had been asked for help with caring for leather furniture. To answer this I went on to tell you you about Heritage Leathercare (sometimes known as Celtic Leathercare) and how good it is on your leather suites. In this post I will tell you something about it.

Made in their Dublin facility by Drigate Products, Heritage Leathercare is a traditional 19th century leather balsam containing original, old fashioned ingredients including beeswax. These are well known in the trade for protecting and revitalising the leather used in leathercraft (and indeed the stitching). Many craftspeople and professionals will vouch for its tried and tested formula.

The results obtained with Heritage Leathercare are instantaneous and long lasting. Whilst newer leather products benefit from a shine and protection unsurpassed by modern polishes not containing our ingredients older, tired leather is left revitalised and more supple.Heritage Leathercare is generally regarded as one of the most economical on the market in this day and age.

How do I keep my leather furniture looking like new?

Knowing that I sold a product for leather, a couple of people, looking for help with caring for their leather suites, asked me about Heritage Leathercare. They had new suites and were looking for help to keep them looking like new

Heritage Leathercare feeds, polishes and protects leather and leaves a water resistant finish It is also colourless so can be used on any colour. Another advantage of Heritage is that it will also clean most colours although white and similar pale colours may, need washing first. To do this, wash with pure soap (Simple Soap,Dreft, soap flakes, etc.) and dry thoroughly making sure your leather is totally dry before applying your Heritage.

Heritage Leathercare is very easy to use.Using the sponge provided, wipe it across the surface of the polish and remove any excess by wiping across the inside edge of the tub. Then apply to your leather by wiping very sparingly, in circular motions. On completion, your leather should not be greasy to the touch. If it is greasy, buff it up using a clean, dry and soft cloth.To keep your leather furniture in a supple condition and looking good it is recommended that you apply your Heritage Leathercare 3 or 4 times per year as a minimum.

I'm not well.

I'm dying! That is what all husbands are supposed to say when they have the sniffles isn't it?

OK, I have a cold. For those readers who don't know what 'a cold' is, it is an infection that is very uncomfortable with a fuzzy head, soar throat, blocked and runny nose, sneezing and a cough. It will usually last less than a week but you feel very rough whilst it lasts. It is, however, a good excuse for doing nothing.

Hopefully I will be back on topline in a couple of days.
