How to Use Spirulina PowderHow to Use Spirulina Powder

We at Natures Garden have many herbs wholesale that you can include in your homemade cosmetic products. However, there are very few herbs that are as nourishing as the Spirulina Powder. This wonderful algae is full of all kinds of vitamins and minerals that the body needs to be its best. In fact, some people have been referring to this super food as the “food of the future”. Spirulina has gained this nickname for a few important reasons. These reasons include being fast and easy to grow as well as having high amounts of essential nutrients for the body. These nutrients are key to making this an amazing herb for the entire body. So, we will use this blog to explore some of the uses and benefits of Spirulina as well as share with you how to use Spirulina Powder in your own natural herbal cosmetics.

How to Use Spirulina Powder: Growing ConditionsHow to Use Spirulina Powder: Growing Conditions

Spirulina can be found growing in the lakes and ponds of Africa, Central America and South America. This algae prefers these warm lakes and their alkaline water conditions, around a pH range of 8-11. So, you won’t ever find Spirulina growing sea water. Also, it needs to have an abundance of sunlight and mineral rich water. Both the sun light and minerals are used by Spirulina as food sources. Then, the algae uses these to create all the beneficial properties that make it so loved. Further, Spirulina is able to grow in conditions that many other algae can not. In fact, some dessert populations of Spirulina can survive if their pond evaporates, as they can remain dormant on rocks until the water returns.

Also, you can recreate some of the conditions that Spirulina needs to thrive so you can grow some at home! If you wanted to grow this algae on your own, you just need a few supplies. It is said to be about the same level of maintenance as caring for fish. So, you will need a fish tank, sunlight, a few mineral salts for food, and some simple equipment. If you would like to know some specifics on growing this super food, then take a look at a great resource we found at the end of this blog. They go over the basics of growing this algae at home and have even more information for anyone that runs into problems.

Today, Spirulina is often sold to make people healthier. You can find this algae in health food stores as a supplement to your normal diet. Also, many people use Spirulina to add to smoothies or other healthy foods. These are both done to increase the amount of nutrients that you are getting with typical healthy eating. These nutrients include high levels of protein, various vitamins, and many essential minerals.

However, this super food is actually only a rediscovered gem and not some new health discovery. In fact, Spirulina is a crop that was farmed by some ancient civilizations, but it had gotten lost somewhere in history. There is historical evidence that Aztecs were using Spirulina as a major food source in the 16th century. It is thought to have been harvested in Lake Texcoco and made into cakes, as a Spanish conquistador named Hernan Cortez had observed the native people harvesting and consuming it. He even tried some of the algae and noted that it had the “flavor of cheese”. Although this practice had disappeared from culture for a time, we are rediscovering its properties and finding new uses. Since this crop is nutritious and easy to cultivate, organizations like the United Nations promote its production in developing countries to help alleviate world hunger.

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits? : What is Pumice?

First of all, pumice isn’t really an herb. This cosmetic ingredient is actually a type of rock. This rock will form certain types of magma that are cooling. In the case of this cosmetic ingredient, the pumice stone would be ground up to be used in all kinds of bath and body recipes. But, not all pumice starts out in such a small form. In fact, some of the pumice stones that are formed can be quite large!

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits? : How is Pumice Made?

Simply, the pumice stone is a type of volcanic rock that is formed from cooling magma. But, there is a bit more you can learn about the formation of this special rock. First of all, there is a slight difference between magma and lava. While these two words are very similar, the difference is that the magma is stuck underground and lava flows above ground.  Sometimes the magma will become lava after a volcano eruption. Other times, the magma will cool underground before it gets the chance to make it to the earth’s surface.  In both of these cases, there is a potential for pumice to form. But, the rock that will be formed from magma that rapidly cools under the ground is more common for industrial use.

However, pumice isn’t formed from just any type of magma. These cosmetic rocks are made from magma that is frothy, full of gases, and cooled rapidly.  The gases will form the little holes that we see in the pumice stones. Once the liquid around the gas solidifies it will leave the air pockets that we see in the hardened rock. If the pumice doesn’t form underground, there is one more way that it can be created. You can have pumice form after a volcano erupts. Once the volcano erupts any of the frothy magma that is spewed out has the potential to quickly cool into pumice as it falls back to the earth. 

What Are the Pumice Stone Benefits?: Where is Pumice Found?

Although pumice can be formed underground or in the air after an eruption, most of the pumice is formed by magma cooling underground. Since most of the pumice is created from cooling magma, most of this volcanic stone is mined from the ground. These hunks of pumice can then be used to create pumice stones or ground up to be added to bath and body recipes.

Plus, there is pumice being mined in areas all over the globe. Italy is the largest producer of pumice and is followed closely by nearby countries, like Spain, Greece, and Turkey. However, this volcanic rock can be found all over the globe, including the United States.  Basically, you can find pumice anywhere there was gas and water in magma that is cooing rapidly. So, many of the volcanoes that form near a coast will likely have pumice being created nearby. You can even find this stone in the deepest depths of the ocean, as there places in the oceanic crust where water sinks below the crust and can lead to pumice!
